Re: SOTCW Future Offer

Russell, Thank you for your magnanimous position statement above. All, I feel now that, armed with Russ's input, I can now lay out high level what a new proposal would look like. Hopefully this may answer some of Phils recent questions, but only so far as it only really addresses the offer 'what is ...

Re: SOTCW Future Offer

John, I don't think problems in the past are that relevant to now but I will answer from my perspective. At the time of the handover the Society membership was already in decline, so this began on my watch. I was frustrated with this, as the team have become, not convinced that the new teams plan wo...

Re: SOTCW Future Offer

Phil,

I would like to put a pin in your last two posts please. I would like to get input from others which will then help me dimension proposals in line with members wishes. We can always return to your posts if needed once we have a broader range of opinions and views to work with.

Thanks,

Mark

Re: SOTCW Future Offer

Hi Kalinovsky,

Can you expand on this observation please - it sounds like you have a heartfelt and valid view but I am unclear what has caused it. Don't hold back, but please keep it objective. At this point I think we all need clear, honest feedback.

Many thanks,

Mark

Re: SOTCW Future Offer

Hello Phil, Thank you for that summary. Can you confirm, is this your personal view or are you speaking on behalf of the current team ? I think I was aware of this status, but sometimes it's interesting to have things summarised, albeit in such a condescending way. I am not sure the greater membersh...

Re: SOTCW Future Offer

Thanks Russ - looks like a more robust than the one I ever had!

Have you any thoughts or comments, however general, on my proposal and the debate ?

Re: End of Subscription 15 - major changes

John/Phil, Please see my post here where I am trying to lay out my position. https://forum.sotcw.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=790 Admittedly it only partially answers some of your questions but basically I am proposing to press 'reset' on the SOTCW as it is now and start again; I don't have specific a...

Re: End of Subscription 15 - major changes

Hello John,

I do not engage in public forum disagreements of this kind - sparring of this kind is the worst behavior on this, and many other, similar forums, and is a reason why people are put off - nobody wins anyway.

I am happy to talk about the SOTCW future however.

SOTCW Future Offer

This is here for those who may want a recap on what happened. https://forum.sotcw.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=325 Subsequently I came very close to establishing an alternative (but close to) version of the S...
