There's been some things that have gone on recently that I feel it's appropriate to open a discussion about what we all can do together to make Weight Weenies a better place. The most important thing is to remember that we are a community and we are all responsible to help shape this community into what we'd like it to be.

With that being said, I do want to address the idea that "Weight Weenies is not the place it used to be." That may be true, but the internet is not the same place it used to be either. The internet has evolved into a more hostile place than it used to be, and this forum is not immune from it. There used to be industry engineers on this forum and individuals like djconnel that would analyze, compute and quantify everything. SuperDave came back for a brief period a year or two ago, as did Damon Rinard. They left again. Not because this forum is no longer about dremeling parts, but because users have become more hostile. These types of behaviors are what we need to root out. As moderators, we cannot read every thread and keep up with everything. It's everyone's job to call out inappropriate behavior and/or flag it. Flagging is the tool that helps us moderate and keep things in check.

I need to discuss with the other moderators of what our policy will be to address the tone issues, as I think it's an increasing problem with everyone on edge dealing with the fallout of COVID but most likely it will be a zero tolerance policy of everyone involved gets a vacation.

So, what else can we do as a community to improve the forum?
Appreciate the nod. I'm pretty thick-skinned but you're right that there seems to be a move toward how loud you can shout rather than the topic you're shouting about. Good luck, always available by email or Direct Message.

Hey man, I got an email from google saying that my pw and login info was made public becuase of a starbike.com data breech. Not sure how deep it goes. My username and pw are similar in a few places. So that was concerning. Just relaying-David

I got the same email re: password breach. And the site (here) is not letting me change the password.

If you're having trouble with the change password, a workaround could be to use the Forgot password button on login. That does work.

More brand influenced censoring over at this thread here. I understand why dudemanppl removed the post but NMX deleting the reupload was uncalled for.

I'm out of here, this forum is pretty much useless. If companies can lean on mods to delete any topic they want removed, what's the point of this forum. First Juan with the trek thread and now NMX. There's no accountability for mods. I didn't break any rules and it's obvious there was some backhanded crap from Fox.

Also, shout out to Sean Estes from the Fox Marketing team for threatening me in instagram dms. Very cute.

Don’t go :(

Unreleased stuff is always tricky, but if it is leaked it shouldn’t be removed
