No, the biggest problem was a forum member took it upon himself to leak this before we ( me, Killclimbz, the mod team and Vince) had a chance to all talk and present it. Once that happened, it was presented in the least bad way possible under circumstances that forced my hand without guidance or consensus. You people need to take responsibility for being as much a part of the problem as we were. You are the reason it was not given a chance to work!
As for my actions, I let that thread go on a long time. When it became rinse and repeat it got locked. Keep in mind even Donutz had had enough and threatened the ban hammer too and he is much nicer than me. You guys pushed the issue until something had to give and it did.
And you're right! I and at least 4 others from the team won't be providing this site reviews and I am disinclined to offer my help in the coaching and instruction section anytime soon either; you people burned your bridge with me. I get paid to coach at the resort and I love what I do there. I don't need to do it here for free for people who are going to turn around and stab me in the back and attack my integrity over what was a good intent.
Just wanted to point this out; I am not interested in getting involved with the current state of things but feel it's important to mention:
I happened to be on the forum when the OG NSDT introductory thread was first posted clearly on the Active Topics page. I believed it to be authored by Vman, as it had such things in it like, "(anything else to add here, Scott?)" and seemed to be more of a private rough draft than completed intro, which I found to be odd. Days later it appeared to be revised and completed by you, Snowolf. It was cleaned up and edited to reflect more of an official intro.
It may have been leaked by a forum member, but not
binarypie or anyone not affiliated with the NSDT as thought.
If it was a mistake by Vman or a glitch, that's one thing. But it wasn't leaked by anyone else not involved. At least not the way it came across when I first saw it.
Edit: I can't help but think I was the only one, as the thread had around 20-30 views but no replies.
