I've seen the it backfire when community owners take guidance from the members. I've seen members requesting that a certain change be made, the staff did what the community requested and it was a disaster.

IMO, the best thing is for the owner to be actively involved as a member, get to know the community and all its quirks and then make decisions on their own.

always within reason, of course, though

It's certainly a good idea to take the wishes of the community into account when deciding on things that will affect the community. If MT wants to make changes though, it's his prerogative to make them whether the community likes them or not.

MT isn't dumb, he won't just make changes for the sake of making changes and blow this place up. Just the fact that he created this poll is a great sign of that.

So, what do you have in mind, Mr. Meaty?

Yes please. Poll was closed, but I figured I can still voice my opinion.

Hi Gang... Thanks for all your valuable feedback. It seems we will be having more polls in the near future.

The first area to be discussed is the "look & feel" of the forum. I would like to clean it up a bit and bring it out of the 90's. Basically this means I will purchase a new skin for vBulletin. I will find a few skins that look cleaner and crisper and then we will put them to a vote as well. This should be happening this week!

Cheers!
MT

exciting....!

Umm can you do something about the filter in chat? I can't use the word scrape lol. And on a dog forum when we are talking breeding it would be nice to be able to say bitch. (we still say those things but you have to space them or put a '.' in the middle)
