Thanks for the vote Brian.   ;)

As a writer, I was impressed with your very well thought out message.  As an enthusiast, chock full of human imperfections, I take the message to heart.  Thank you, you are an outstanding choice for moderator!

Was there an actual vote/poll? I must have missed it. Congrats a ton SLOweather because you are an EXQUISITE choice of becoming an administrator!!!!! :grin: :grin: :grin: =D&gt; =D&gt; =D&gt;

I've decided to post this in an old, but still highly applicable topic given recent happenings in the Weatherunderground board:

1) two members from WU joined to hear and receive feedback about Wunderground website and services issues.
2) it was pro-bono on their part.
3) they expressed in this post
--- Quote ---Both wunderground-pws and I take time out of our work day (and sometimes our evenings/weekends) to read this forum because of its passionate users -- both the experienced ones with tons of help to offer, and our newer folks who benefit from this.

We want to continue to offer our insight on issues as our time permits.  Going forward, individual threads for each question is probably the best way for us to read and contribute.

While we do appreciate the strong opinions you have on Weather Underground issues, there is no place in either of our lives for the constant barrage of negativity.  For those of you wishing to express negative sentiment around IBM as a company, bemoan the loss of 'The Old WU', degrade us our our teams, or just speculate on why/how a choice was made -- feel free to start an individual thread for those too, but know that neither of us will be entertaining a response in this forum.  Any similar behavior displayed in other threads will be forwarded to moderators for their consideration.

The incredible patience and dedication so many of you have displayed to WU, even during rough transitions as we've worked to modernize our small unit across a large company, is humbling.  We're grateful for your passion and hope you'll continue to provide a positive feedback loop for us to communicate with you.  And we'll continue to leverage your passion here to develop our support channels going forward.

4) some members here seem to mostly post angry/often derogatory/causal theories and those postings (while maybe cathartic for the poster), leave the topic thread difficult to glean the underlying issues.  It also serves to discourage anyone seeking to provide answers to genuine questions.  That is NOT the behavior we've engendered here on

Lastly, I am personally embarrassed and disappointed in the few members who have repeatedly made posts with defamatory, abusive, or  hateful tenor which have degraded the signal-to-noise ratio on multiple threads regarding Weatherunderground.

To those who wish to express your anger/etc, please take those sentiments to Facebook or Twitter -- this forum values civil discourse and facts.

Thanks for your kind attention (do read the first post too...)
