We joined in the same week, and I have seen changes. Your perception may be biased against acknowledging them for some reason.
It's just that more people start to understand that everything isn't so perfect or great
Honestly, in recent months, if the few complaints that pop up from time to time about how bad the forum is were removed, then I would see hardly anything to complain about; it is the complaints themselves that seem to generate the most friction now. Maybe we're looking for different things in a forum?
like the staff wants us to believe. Of course not the whole staff. Monk Ed was the only that said not everything is perfect and that lately they are trying to do their best, while NemZ and Sachi only gave attitude and never accepted any criticism.
You are not privy to the staff's views; and what appears to be trying to set them one against another is unlikely to be taken favourably.
