I may have been silent – until now...

I am adding my voice to the chorus of those who are declaring that they are NOT leaving RB.

I have been a member of this site since July 2007 and I have made many friends, had some wonderful laughs and have learnt so, so much while being a member. I am upset to see that some members are choosing to leave – they are leaving behind a community that has no doubt nurtured them as it has nurtured me and so many others. I will be staying, as deep down I believe that RB wants this community to continue to thrive. The world isn’t perfect and RB isn’t perfect. For heaven’s sake, if you see images on RB that you feel don’t fit the RB guidelines, then PLEASE report them. Don’t simply be aghast that they’re on here – actually do something. If the images truly do contravene the guidelines, they will be removed. If you think changes to the guidelines should be made, then give RB that feedback – there is now a moderated forum thread that allows you to have your say; or you could leave your suggestions in this forum.

We can sometimes forget that behind the face of RB are the staff members. There are only so many working hours in a day and if the images aren’t immediately removed, jumping up and down about it won’t get them removed any faster. Let’s show a bit of patience and common sense, instead of the witch-hunt that the site has been over the past few days/weeks/months…

I am staying.
