Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Rate: 7 Flag

 

 

Since so many will be at the alternative site starting Monday I wanted to wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving!

 

 ***

 

I can appreciate the frustration with the site as I experience problems whenever I log on and get a page of error messages. I haven't been able to access my mailbox for two weeks and I was dismayed at no open calls and little change on the cover, in addition to little communication from the Salon staff.

In the earlier days of Salon, beta and after OS was open to everyone, we had a feeling of being in the loop with Kerry since he regularly posted updates about the site for us.

My guess is after a month of boycotting the site will still be plagued by problems, but it doesn't hurt to send a very strong message indicating the collective interest in having the problems fixed, just like a renter would withold rent until the landlord fixed problems with the renter's apartment.

What's being done is not a boycott. There is no thought that Salon Media Group will respond in any way. The intent is to move the community to a new platform - Our Salon - in hopes that after a month people will no longer care about returning to Open.
Mark ~ thanks for the clarification! From some of the posts put up over the past few days it looked like it was akin to a boycott, but I'll think of it as a trial separation as one would see in a marriage that's not doing so well. Best wishes to you!
Why are you so determined to not give Our Salon a try?

Open Salon is just a platform that supports our community. The community exits because of US - not Open. And YOU are part of the community.

The owners - Salon Media Group - abandoned Open to the spammers long ago because it enhances their ad-based revenue.

Our Salon is just another platform. But, it is one that works for us - for the community. It is up, available, responsive, and has no spammers.

Lorianne has busted her ass making it a place that is for US!
Mark, I really appreciate in a major way your interest and invitation to OurSalon! Based on your kind words I will definitely keep it in mind. I will say that I have huge, huge loyalty to OS and I am sending positive vibes to the staff to make the improvements they have spoken of so many times.

Besides meeting a wonderful group here on OS, I enjoyed interfacing with Joan Walsh on multiple occasions, had a magazine contact me about writing an article and had the story published, I have a permanent writer's page on Big Salon, and I continue to be a daily reader and commenter on Big Salon and a Premium member there, as well.
Thanks for your early Thanksgiving wishes. As for the OS boycott or whatever those participating are considering it, I say, to each his or her own. I'll personally be staying here on OS, like you. And like you, I really hope it'll get better. I guess we'll see.....
May the holiday be full of family and good food, and may the weather cooperate as well. Make it a great one! And thanks for your good wishes. It means a lot.

HUGGGGGGGGGG
John, What Stacey said....I hope things work out for everyone involved. I love this forum, and I'm beginning to love its child..
Happy Holidays to you, you great hearted man.
I think Jake and the rest do listen, but as been stated before, there's no news to report.

I have an account for OurSalon, I also have one for Zoomers.ca(which actually features me numerous times, close to 40 times in the year I've been there) as well, as Word Press, etc.

I've been too busy working to blog regularly anymore but keep trying as it keeps my brains from turning into mush and run out my ears!! :D

LETS JUST STAY COOL, AND WRITE AND READ WHEREVER.....
P.S.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!! I'm already ready to kill people at random at the store!! :D
I have spent all afternoon trying to get my posts secured.Google Reader has given me an overloading problem,and I did get as far as sending all posts to my google mailbox.
I love OS,and it is hard for me not being in contact with all these nice people.There is a vacuum already although you have not even reached the deadline.
I am glad there are people like you who also love OS and want to stay.I a way,I feel supported by you.
Thank you.
