    First 2018 Advisor Town Hall

    Happy 2018, tPF! Let's start the year off right with a town hall. This one will be a little different than past town halls, however, in that we actually have an issue we want some input on first and then the floor will be open to questions/comments/concerns. As always, concerns about specific moderators or specific moderator actions should be directed to the moderators themselves via PM or reports. We try to keep advisor town halls specifically devoted to issues advisors actually have some say in, which does include general moderation.

    Now, on to business. There will be an attached poll on this subject. With the exception of the month of December (what with the holidays and all), we have been faithful to member requests that we hold a town hall once a month. We have no problem continuing to do them once a month, if the majority of tPF would like to continue doing them once a month. We would like to know where the membership stands on that, however. The alternative to monthly town halls is to only hold town halls when a member requests one and can get a majority of membership voting in the affirmative on a poll.

    What do you all think? Let us know in the comments and please vote in the poll!

    What other comments/questions/concerns do you have?

    Crepitus is a poor example of an advisor. He needs to be replaced. Period.

    Cmon guys lets keep this constructive and not personal
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    How active are things in the advisor room? I notice several advisors don't post here any more, or at least haven't been. It's got to be tough to actively try to rebuild the forum when some of the advisors have left...

    If minimal activity requirements are not filled, pass the position to an active member in good standing.

    I’d say it’s pretty active. We slowed a bit during the holidays of course.

    Take that up with the moderators. This needs to stay civil and not get bogged down in personal stuff.

    @Common this is not personal. You have my word on it.
    I'm no choice, but even @waltky would be an excellent choice for forum advisor. He's as neutral as they come.

    please read post #9. It is not personal. We need people of neutral persuasion for these positions.
