    Absolutely not. I enjoy it quite a bit.

    Read this.

    And this.

    We're going to strengthen both by making them work together.

    Gary,
    Tell me you're just trolling... Where did you get such an idea?

    Trolling?

    I am not Trolling. Just what do you mean by trolling? I have some concerns based on what I have read in the magazine and on the web that there was a posibility that the magazine would be closed. It's just a question and a legitimate one. Yes or no would suffice.

    ON is not going away or getting weakened or turned into an ad for a website or any of the other theories we've seen propagated here.

    ON not going away

    Cool, I am glad to hear that. I read the mag several times through every month and look forward to receiving it with great anticipation.

    I asked about trolling because that seemed like such an absurd question. Honestly, I've not been following any of the threads on this forum about the Media Editor position for a couple of months because so many people were saying totally unreasonable and untrue things, and in some cases making very serious accusations - all without basis or proof. Don't need it.

    Apparently the sillyness has gotten to the point where some people have twisted the Media Cordination Plan into a plot to shutdown the magazine. Freakin' amazing!

    For the record, the ON will only get better, as will the web site. Go read the links Kbasa posted about the Media Plan. It's all there in summary: a very simple idea to make both media serve the members better.

    Gives you some idea of just how rare is the true seeker of knowledge. At least on Internet lists and forums.

    Generating new content takes some time and effort to support and gather, so it follows we'd like to discuss this area in some detail well in advance. The "web team" has developed many good ideas which we'll soon share here for your feedback. However, general member input and suggestions is keenly desired! You never know where the next best idea will come from.

    Just remember that as a volunteer organization, our "wish list" only comes true when someone takes on that task. So what we discuss here can not be considered a promise of anything more than a good effort to find some way or someone to make it happen. Natually, qualified volunteer offers are more than welcome!.
    As a jaded senior dropping out of long held mc memberships, burnt out on mc mags, etc., I'm experiencing a revival of enthusiasm thanks to this neat Web site. The contributions are great but certainly it's the volunteer commitment and talent that make it so outstanding.

    Not to mention that all the web/forum volunteers (and paid staff) are all handsome, beautiful, intelligent, and generally well above average.

    Thanks for your support - but the best part to me of your post was: "...I'm experiencing a revival of enthusiasm thanks to this neat Web site." THAT's what this is all about!
