|It's Been A While Since McCaffrey Fandom Played Up
It's good to know that over on The New Kitchen Table
things are still as wank as ever.
Every now and then I wander over for a poke around. Today I am greeted by this.An extremely important situation has developed within the AMCF Host and Technical community.
Scott, the Technician, has issued the Host Team an ultimatum. He handed in his resignation, giving us 24 hours to either change his mind or he is walking. With him, he has stated, will go the VBulletin License and the Domain License, which were turned over to him, and put in his name by the previous Administration. (note: the 24 hrs is over as of 11 A.M. GMT on December 6, 2005)
This means two things: 1) that Scott would be Stealing the site and 2) is that Scott would own the site, for all intents and purposes, with control over all aspects of the Bulletin Board and associated functions.
The Host Team has unsuccessfully tried to retrieve both licenses over the past several months to ensure the continued site operation.
While we know that Scott has given many hours to the site maintainence, there have also been many unauthorized actions taken without the Host Teams' knowledge and approval, as well as unnecessary backroom changes and adjustments. He also has appeared to dedicate himself to frustrating and overriding many Host Team decisions and requirements to perform their responsibilities to the site.
As you, AMCF members, are the "real" site owners, through your donations and continued support, it is only right that you are aware of this situation.
At approximately 2 A.M. GMT, December 6, 2005, Scott's resignation was accepted by the Host Team, the site database was backed up, and Scott was removed from all Technical, Administrative and Moderator functions of the site. We have reserved a new domain under the name of www.annemccaffreyfans.net . It is not currently set up, but is available for backup purposes.
If necessary, a forum will be created in A Meeting of the Minds for us to discuss the site's future. Guests will be permitted to post in this forum, so registration will not be necessary. We ask that this privilege NOT be abused, and that respect for Cheryl's site be maintained at all times. We will keep you posted about this, if we can, should it need to be done. If you find you cannot access the site, please check the MoM forum. We will do our utmost to keep members informed should anything go wrong, but it may not be possible to notify every member.

We thank you for your friendship and loyalty through the time we've spent together here at AMCF and the previous AMC sites. We are also most grateful to Cheryl for her generosity and support in allowing us to temporary utilize her Forum.
