Also, how do they plan on vetting potential new members from the outside of Avalon? Since some of the existing members will drop out from time to time, the membership will drop off, just wondering?

The MODS are working on lists of people they will invite personaly (by email) to join PA2. What their criteria for choosing is not something I know.

These first members will be able to invite people once the registration process is compelte (more information on that to come).

In the very near futur there is going to be a link made available to ask for an invite.

This is absolutely atrocious PR


It would have been best if Garath or GaiaLove made these announcements at the time or day before going live. Better still it would have been best if Bill said it.

All you are going to achieve, considering the discourse within the forum, is scare people. Who ever told you to release this information now has potentially caused further mayhem on this forum. Unless that’s the intention.

There will be an announcement very soon made by either Gareth or Bill and the link from the main page will go to the new location. Until that time the new forum isn't to be considered "live".

You know there has been discourse and worry on the forum. There are threads after threads going on and on about this and that. Folk are speculating, picking apart and taking things out of context to the brief post made by admin / mods. This speculation is driving an ethos of fear.

It’s good to know that a high-ranking announcement will be made soon but hasn't the announcement just happened. The cat is already out the bag. My concern was that this premature statement would add further to the forum unrest. It is with that in mind that I state this cat out of the bag is a PR farce. I hope my estimation of further discourse is wrong and that things run smoothly.

I agree..there should have been more openings for a Q&A with MODS..

I found it very frustrating to sit here "knowing that threads would be able to be moved" and waiting for MODS to say something..they didnt..I did...

Perhaps not in the way you would want.. i apologise for that...i am doing my best to help ease the flow of tension


Richard is On skype in a MOD conference call... So please do not take his "not answering you" as a sign of not paying attention.

If you have a question..He is sitting 6 feet away from me..

I can do my best to get you an answer...

If you think its best i dont do that..please tell me why.
