MAJOR CHANGES...
06/24/12

the group name and focus is going to change. i will be looking for additional members who probable are not specifically interested in community. there will be less emphasis  on community as a goal and more interest in alternative ways to live environmentally. then if the group remains deader than a doornail, it will be made into a closed group and if there are no objections, all members will, except the owner, be deleted. if i don't hear anything, i will assume that those members are not getting this message because they are "web only" members and don't come to the group or are not interested in any case. you only need to respond if you care one way or another...

 

one albatross down...

i need to hear from you...
07/10/12

i have messagesd most members by now.

 

if any of you have your notification setting on "web only" or for some reason you are not getting any group announcements, please let me know. i will be deleting members who don't respond to messaging because there is no other way to contact members of the group not coming to the group and/or who are not recieving email notices. messaging individually is not practical except for individual matters. if you want to discuss this, i certainly want to hear from you.

CLOSING GROUP...
07/25/12

some of the things i have posted here may seem a bit harsh to someone who has never tried to have a successful group.

 

people who join a group and NEVER bother to post and NEVER respond when i go out of my way to message them individually and NEVER respond when i ask for feedback are not in reality members of this group. no one can run a group if there is no one else there. there are a handfull of members who post a few times a year. if they would be interested in continuing as members, they can rejoin. otherwise, i wish you all well. it would be nice to hear from you occasionally through messaging or email.

 

obviously, this group is no longer needed or wanted, so i have decided to close it the way facebook does, delete all members first. instead of deleting the group itself, though i will close the group so that i will be the only one to have access. i doubt if anyone will mind. if you are member, in name only, in other groups, you are not helping anyone. if you do not want to be a participating member, why are you there?  i know i'm not alone in my frustration over this...
