Extracts from this document...

Introduction

English Language * An Open Letter complaining about the faults of a fan club/debate forum/assembly or community to its members. I have been a member of this community for just under a year now. I post fairly regularly, I read what I see, I process it, and I respond when appropriate. I see a lot of talented people on these boards, with a lot of unique perspectives and a lot of knowledge about art, design, and hell, even life in general that can be passed around to the community. I see a diverse group who can come onto the forum and really give and take. I have been around the block on GF, and I generally am proud to be a member and contributor here. ...read more.

Middle

The prevailing attitude of "we love design, and we have a community around that" is changing to "I have a ripped copy of Photoshop and a shitty attitude". I also see more and more general anger and bitterness towards each other, especial when someone tries to offer a critique. This community is running itself into the ground very rapidly and I for one hate to see that happen. GF has in the past been an excellent resource, and I think it would be a terrible shame to see it degrade into another useless forum. I see a lot of thread moving, and closing 'my site got ripped' topics when they are solved, and that's about it from the moderators here. ...read more.

Conclusion

Now I know some of the moderators, and I am very friendly with a few of them, so I know that they are certainly capable and intelligent, and that with their help I think the forum can be turned around. So what do we do? Why write this letter? I think we should use this thread to OPENLY and reasonably discuss this. I do not want to see "you have no idea what is going on the forum is just fine" What I want to see is an open dialog of intelligent and mature people discussing a way to help a slowly sinking ship. I want to end this by saying that the reason I am writing this is because I genuinely care about this forum, and I want to see it stay around for a long time as a positive and helpful place to go. ...read more.

    It may be assumed that the national interest, or "national preferences", reflects " the objectives of those domestic groups which influence the state apparatus" (Moravcsik 2003:24).3 Thus, changes in the nature of states here means change along any one of these dimensions.
