Response to Chemisse (Original post)

17. I heard today from Skinner.

It is simply a matter of backlog.

I asked:

Skinner, is the plan to have some of the smaller groups go unhosted?

There are a number of smaller groups that have no hosts. True enough, they have no history of discord, either, dating waaaaay back into DU2 history. Pets and DIY come to mind, but there are a number of others, too.

In the Pets group, I was asked to host. I have sent you emails in various formats - your DU mail, your regular internet email, and in a pinned thread where people ask to be hosts. I have heard nothing.

The advantage of having a host in these placid, out of the way groups is for such things as pinned threads (a picture thread of our pets in the Pets group, for example).

If, however, the plan is to let these groups go unmoderated, that's your call and we'll live with it. But can we at least know where it stands? In the case of the Pets group, someone put up a thread asking me to be host. I asked for other volunteers but no one stepped forward, although many of the group regulars wanted a host.


To which he replied:

If a group wants hosts, then they get Hosts

I think the issue here is that I have not assigned any hosts since before Christmas. I have a backlog which I will address this week.

FWIW, I think there are plenty of groups that don't need hosts. But that's not my call.

So it is simply a matter of time.

I would still like to have cohosts. Is anyone interested?
