In a motion suggested and agreed upon among much of the active members of the temple, we are making some access / structure changes to the forums.

The problem with print, and one highlighted by another of myself, is the ease with which a postvcan be torn apart...

There was a vote, taken of the Knights, in the Knight Forum....

Gisteron, we didn't consider names when done, but I get your point...

Let me say, this wasn't a unanimous decision, or one without much debate...

It actually stalled until the most recent post by a guest....

If I may humbly suggest *bows*

Having had the pleasure of visiting many of our neighboring communities. I have seen many ways in how this is handled. As suggested above, the motion is understood...the name simply requires a little reworking.

How about "Off Topic Area" or "Guest Chambers" Or like Gathered Force Community uses "The Chatter Box" or pick a theme like a village "towns square" or since this is a Temple "The Lounge."

It was not my intention to tear this post apart, but more to point at the poorness in concerns of the original post in regards to how it was presented, or written. Had he been a bit more specific in his wording, I wouldn't have felt the need to post in the first place...

In no Zenchi, I understand that...

You didn't go about anything "wrong"...

I was just saying that "Monday morning quarterbacking" or "hindsight" shows where we coulda done more to be clear...

Sorry, that's what I meant...:)

This seems excessive. It used to be that journals, even apprentice journals were public.

Maybe...

But lots of things "used to be"...

You made the current apprentice forum out of reach...

We could also talk about handing out of memberships and more before some standards were in place... Which you helped with... lol...

The great thing about Jedi (should be) our willingness to adapt to change... Whether a welcome one or not....

And our ability to discuss the changes... :)

Hmm to prevent people from posting in journals all that was done is put a warning in red ... An appropriate action I believe.... The apprentice section was created so that masters could keep track of their students (as masters were getting more and more apprentices at the same time) and also to allow for easy record keeping... It had nothing to do with making the "unworthy" unable to read or contribute... In fact we were unsure as to what the policy regarding journals should be, and only moved an existing journal at the request of its author.
It was certainly not done in response to a bunch of realists (who aren't even hostile).

When you look at things "in black and white",as in "worthy and unworthy", i can see how that might appear to be the case...

But that wasn't the case, I'm sure you are aware...

We try to not exclude anyone, you know that... I think...

I believe you've argued in favor of it (of keeping out the "unworthy"), under an "elitist" discussion...

We are just trying to do our best... I believe the conversation has lasted a month or more in the Knight forum....

We don't take exclusion lightly....
