    If you are leaving because you lost power , and are demoted, as you put it, to a regular member, than most likely you weren't here for the right reasons.

    i agree with greg. i dont mind being demoted for somebody that is "more active on the site" which i guess im not cuz i dont have fancy builds or post in everybody's build thread but im on here more than anybody im usualy here from around 10am til about 3pm when i have to leave for work. so if thats not active enough then i dont know what is and big frign deal i dont make it to the comps but i cant justify driving almost 4 hours round trip to comp for maybe 3-4 hours it isnt worth my time. the furthest ill go is actives place. but what realy ticked me off is how i lost my supporting member icon i supported the ORIGINAL site before this site evolved

    im not going to say anything other then my friends are here and we share the same interests. its totally worth my time to hang with my friends no matter how long the drive. i cant see a drive getting in the way of having fun to be honest. so if you say its not worth your time your not actually supporting the club. or at least thats my vague understanding.
    try the drive from here to toms river nj and back with a comp in between. why did i do it, friends were there and had a blast doing it.
    i dont have big fancy builds, i just do my thing hang with friends and comp when i can. dont care about points. im not trying to bash and make or poke fun just pointing out what i think and trying to understand is all

    This is what I am tring to say for the slow people.
    1st you work for the mod spot not just given to a newbie.
    2nd the only time a mod is demoted is when they have done wrong.

    I'm not mad at losing power but I am pissed due to it not being handle in the proper way
    If the mods or admids need to change so does everyone else just like in the real world not keeping the same higher staff for years.

    And for people who where the higher up on another forum it wasnt just given to you you where voted and so on not just given to you.

    I consider everyone here as friends I love everyone,But at the time I didn't have a road worthy car to make the long trips.
    I would go now but I needed to sell my scaler to pay my rent,I support the club in all ways.

    Greg, just because it was done another way somewhere else does not make it the right way to do things. Just because it was not done to your personal satisfaction does not make it the "wrong" way. Mod positions, choosing of mods and jobs are not covered in the bylaws in any way. So currently there are no guiding rules for it. This is something that needs to be addressed and will, along with the responsibilities of all mods.

    EPARCCrawlers Bylaws v.2
    (review period ends 3/23/11 then voting poll starts ending 3/30/11)
