    Default when in uniform do you represent your business? **kind of spinoff**

    Wow guys..settle petal!

    I can't believe that people are getting so upset over an Internet forum. So sh1t happened..not the end of the world. Yes it could have been handled better. Will they learn for next time? I would say yes.

    Just everyone let it go...take a breathe...and move on.

    Only speaking for myself, but I certainly didn't mean that. Just that having a 2nd account can mean taking off the mod hat and just being one of the masses. Not having the expectation of saying everything perfect, just being yourself. I'm not saying you, or any of the mods aren't being yourselves.... I think you know what I mean though

    The two separate account thing isn't a good idea in my opinion. I post honestly, from the heart, with either the intent of offering genuine advice or tips if asked, genuine sympathy or empathy if needed, and with a genuine interest in knowing more about a subject or why another member feels they way they do in regards to debatable topics. I would not enjoy my time here if I had to start new relationships with people I already knew, so as not to "out" myself

    I'm sorry that some of you feel you cannot form friendships with us, or not trust us etc, it really does sadden me. I have met some of the most amazing people on Bub Hub in my 6 years here, some I consider family, and some who have been there for me more than my own family.
    I'm saying that to prevent issues where mods are being accused of upsetting people, it would be easy for the mod if they were anon.

    Then there would be no confusion between a bubhub representative (mod) and a casual user. It would protect both the mod and bh's brand in case comments are perceived as bad customer service.

    I think mods should be able to use bubhub to form relationships and post from the heart, etc...

    I am sorry you saw offence in what I said...

    That's also what I meant.

    It can be hard to be "close friends," with someone who has power over you. Even if it's just internet forum power, it's still power.

    Just wanted to add- we NEVER mod a person we have a relationship with. We stay out of the discussions and let everyone else decide. And it's NEVER been an issue as far as I am aware.

    PS I do use BH to form relationships and post from the heart. Just saying.

    But I can see that no matter what we say, we are in the bad books and will not appease everyone tonight. Again, we are sorry it's become a 'us vs them' scenario- it was never, ever the intention.

    I thought we were just having a calm discussion. I know mods are fallible just like the rest of us. I think we are just giving our thoughts to make the forum better and I'm not saying or inferring mods don't be themselves. Maybe I haven't worded things well....

    I actually suggested the seperate accounts in support of mods, not against them...

    I don't think it's an "us v them"...it's more of a confusion between BH making changes that adversely affected users, and mods having to deal the annoyed a members...

    It could have been prevented...

    Maybe BH should engage a PR or brand protection expert for their next change...it's obviously this one has left members annoyed and the forum is deathly quiet...

    So if mods were to be anonymous effectively all current mods/admin would have to step down and new 'unknown' mods would then take our place? Genuine question. I'm tired so may just not be getting this lol. I can't see any other way to have unknown mods.

    I haven't really thought that far ahead but you raise a good point.

    Again, some of us suggesting seperate accounts are coming from this from a point of support to the mods, not against them. So there isn't an us and them. I can understand the mods are feeling like they are copping it from all sides atm. But my motives for suggesting this have been one of being positive.

    Anyhoo, I'll leave it there
