October 2012 Chat


On Facebook I have changed the link URL from the one with all the numbers to something a little easier to remember (and bookmark).

[sign in to see URL]

If you want to be a member of the "unofficial" then I need your facebook name so I can add you to the group.

 emoticon

As the subject line says, this is for the "unofficial" Runboard presence on Facebook. The "official" Runboard presence can be found ]here. I am not certain how membership is handled over there but Lesigner Girl or Erika can probably fill you in...

Re:


I feel sad, for the first time since I met my wife I couldn't get her anything for her b-day. I did have the money but a creditor took it from my bank account. Don't get me wrong, I had that set up almost a year ago but I just forgot about it and didn't make the needed adjustments so when it came time to buy something for my wife the money wasn't there (my fault). I am now trying to figure out a way to make it up to her...

Re:


I am actively looking for some time off... not a real vacation but at least a couple of days because right now I am thinking of just saying "the heck with it" and resigning from Runboards staff, among other things... I am just tired of doing work with no recognition beyond the "atta boy" or +karma stage...

Actually, I am just plain tired... I need a chance to rest from some of what I do before everything falls apart...

Re:


Oh, dear! I sure hope you do not leave Runboard Staff! However, I do know what you mean. I feel like I am sometimes just working away day after day and know one knows I am here and I am not really considered staff. I would imagine if you go, I go.

As far as your dear wife. The main thing is that you didn't really forget her. I agree with Queeny. Just do something special with her. It does not have to cost any money.

Re:


What is keeping me here right now is people like you and Queeny and my own [sign in to see URL] type projects. I have blocked out a couple of days after Thanksgiving for some serious downtime to try and refocus and recoup. Even in a worst case scenario I will stay on until the 2012 BotY winners are announced.

Your last day is my last day. I am not hanging out here alone in a void. I already am hanging here alone in a void, but at least I know you are there.

Re: October 2012 Chat


[sign in to see URL] had the total enjoyment of spending time with you once, I know that you love RB. And it's members, and your work on it is something you should know that everyone is proud of. AND YOU KNOW, I have a tendency to speak my [sign in to see URL], I know, to be honest NO ONE gets any feed back on how or what they do, besides a "thank you" or Karma from most of us. (Just ask Susa, who was upset a bit back, and even I have wondered if I should even bother to waste what precious time I have now, with the duties of RB.)
 But in our hearts we KNOW everything you do, and I for one am truly amazed at how much you learned just since I've been here. I'm even more astonished at how much you manage to get done. I DO THINK you need to cut back sometimes, because I DO THINK you push yourself way to hard. Scheduling some 'down time' is good. But you need to do it every week. Take at least ONE day a week, find one or make [sign in to see URL] you don't work HERE or AT [sign in to see URL] PK out to lunch or play in the garden or just take a nap. But shut off the computer and leave it.
NOW you know why, I promised Hubby all those years ago, that come weekends and holidays, I would not even turn ON my computer.
YOU NEED TO LEARN TO SAY NO! (Geeez, I swear I had this conversation with my son a few years back. emoticon )
But also know that I honestly in my own heart THINK that Runboard would suffer greatly if you were to leave. Now whether THOR or LESA has ever had that thought pass through or not I don't know. But I have, especially when things have happened in your life that caused stress like this obviously has. I KNOW that Runboard would suffer greatly if you left. Enough so, that I believe it may not even be viable, or at least would begin to lag greatly behind those other hosts we try so hard to compete with.
I can honestly say without you here, there may be others who would not stay. I for one. I may come and play. Possibly on other sites, and on mine or even close mine and just visit my friends sites.
I would not want any more responsibility and I know that if you were gone, the stress levels here would go up to where I would feel obligated to do more. And so would have to leave, in order not to fall into a bigger role than I can handle.
Just letting you know how I feel, and I honestly don't care who reads it. emoticon

Re:


Awww, Thank you both for the kind words, I appreciate those greatly.

This time it isn't stress Queeny, it's a funk at a minimum and could be the early stages of complete burn out. I am trying to be honest with those feelings.

I chose this board to post at because it represents a dream of mine from 2 years ago. The message traffic here is low enough that I feel comfortable letting my hair down (so to speak).

I do love Runboard yet right now I identify myself more often with Runboards moderators and administrators of the past. I do not see a way forward and that is why I set up my downtime. I'll still be doing things on Runboard even if my worst fears come to pass but they will be on my boards.

The number one question that I have to answer for myself is how I can best help other Runboard users and have fun at the same time. Currently I am finding it very difficult to say that path requires me to remain a local Runboard RSF moderator.

My wife hates the idea of my taking time off but I think she understands that a couple of days off in November is far better than the possible alternative. I am trying to work things out so I only work 5-6 days a week with a real day off at least once a week (see, Queeny, we agree on that much at least). emoticon

One thing I find kinda funny though... I get the feeling that Runboard's staff think I am to busy to do more so they don't ask me about it. The truth is I would like to do more but what I want to do requires greater access than what I have. At least some of what I do now requires some major work-a-rounds on my part just to obtain access so I can help out...

Stopping now before I say something that is best left unsaid...

Re: October 2012 Chat


I'm glad we agree on at least a 5 or 6 day week. emoticon
But I hear you, Pastor. And I understand. Honestly, if anyone reading this besides us idgits doesn't like what they read then perhaps face to face or at least private PM to PM is needed.
BUT....if RB does not want you to do the things you want to do within RB, they need to tell you. Not just ignore you. emoticon
And if you feel more comfortable with the Mods and Admins of the past and don't think the ones now are paying you any heed then you need to let them know that. emoticon
I doubt very much any one above you, understands what you are feeling. Unless you have already had private PM's with either Lesa or [sign in to see URL] I could not know about.
[sign in to see URL] do hear you. I feel disconnected too, but I thought that was just me. Because I'm CHANGING so much right now, ya know?
Maybe it's NOT just [sign in to see URL] Runboard has [sign in to see URL] seems much colder here at RB now. emoticon

Later my [sign in to see URL] had a day out with the ladies and now hubby says he's "Starving"! emoticon
