Please give the new Administrator some time to get up to speed. I think he is also changing servers and some other things, so hopefully , he'll come on and be mores social. In any case, he can never replace Mike. They don't come any better than that.
I am more than willing to give him a chance, however he is not doing anything to endear himself to me, so far. I am holding back, but I am not so far impressed. Wouldn't manners at least dictate that the new person in would say something about Mike? Most jobs have a hand over period, you are introduced to the new staff, you say something, anything. Mike has been a force here, he cared, he devoted his time away from his family, he had a massive sense of humor. I don't think it's asking too much for the new bot to say hi, to acknowledge Mike, that's just basic manners no?
So I will likely be the first person banned, and I will take that. I am a person of manners, I think that's important. Jorg still has the chance to say something other than 'thanks for the welcome'. I am inviting him to say more - Tiny, surely you can see this. Jorg say something..... I think this is my third time inviting him to say something.
I think we are all waiting to see how he will be, the third ask with no response might tell you all something.
