Men,
Yesterday there was a call for blood, heads to roll we were ready to tar and fether anyone and everyone we "thought" was responable for closing the chat room. I know I was one of them. When the call went out for Fred to step down lots of us were willing to jump on that wagon and ride it to where ever it was going. So now I make a CALL TO ARMS lets find some way we can help. There is more to helping this site than sending money or becoming a member. Ask someone on the Board what you can do to help keep this site open for all of us and for those who will come. Send them a brief resume listing what skills you have and which ones you are willing to provide and about how many hours each month you think you can put to this effort. We were so willing to point the finger of blame yesterday; are we just as willing to pick up the yoke and help pull the load? I for one am. You dont have to do these things for a free membership to the site....do it because of what you have gotten from the site up to this point and then try to give a little back. We all support eachother here in the chat. Are we as willing to support the very place that has given us a place to get that support. Thanks Brothers for hearing me out. I hope that the same passion that was expressed yesterday will be shown on this issue as well. This is our site, lets show the world that we will not go quitely into the night.
James

PS: Here's the link to the committe page. It tells you what each one does and who chair's it. Read them and see if there is just one you think you can help.

I don't know why the chat room is closing down. $$$$ or something else. I just don't understand. i will do what ever i can to make sure that MS continue to help survivors with there healing. I just saw the chat room post this morring and it was locked so I could not give my input. It realy upsets me to see what is going on here.
What ever help is needed I am here.

5 years experence "cold calling"
3 years customer service
Basic skills on most of Mircosofts programs (excell, power point, etc)

James

I am not at all sure I have any talent. I will of course be willing to do any menial task required, to distribute flyers or fill envelopes and mail them. I am not comfortable to think of talking of all this openly yet.

skills:

researcher
writer
minimal typing (don't ask \:\) )
administration
distribution
teaching
researcher
analysis
big mouth
did i mention "researcher"? \:D

a little tounge in cheek there. i have worked in leadership roles before, do have administrative traing honed in 5 yrs of progressive responsibility, and i really do love to research and summarize with my own flair for words and thoughts. if that can prove useful here, let me know. sorry, i do not feel comfortable with public yet but anything i contribute can be used for the benefit of this site. take care, all.

Theo,
Thank you for posting the skills you have that you are willing to share. Did you read Fred's post in the "off-topic" Forum about the new Leadership Team MS has started? We are looking for men willing to join. Read it and see if you fill you can add to it.
James
