An example of True Leadership

With the latest rules implemented and actions taken by the Site Administrators here at it has been confirmed, once again, that we belong to a site where community members are appreciated and valued.

Many sites have failed to recognize this and mistreated their writers by implementing detrimental changes without warning, refusing to respond to communications and plainly ignoring their users opinions.

Not here though, our Admins MaeLou and Elitecodex have always communicated on a timely manner and have been honest and upfront about any situation that might arise.

From previous experiences (at those other sites), we all know what a bad management and lack of leadership does to a site like this. I am glad PersonaPaper Admins have what it takes to make these difficult decisions with total transparency and long term vision.

I know that many members might be temporarily affected by these decision, but I hope they continue here helping the site grow and help revert the situation. We all need to consider that our Admins never hid behind their staff or went silent for months, that, in my opinion, is an example of True Leadership .

I agree. Difficult decisions had to be made and I appreciate the open communication.

Yes, and the owner of THAT OTHER SITE keeps on making excuses and trying to get people to buy his e-book.

j2jworkz Yes, they did what needed to be done and kept us informed.

alexdg1 Promises! Promises! Surprises! Surprises! They still don't see it.

I agree with you nbaquero . Both MaeLou and elitecodex took the bull by the horns so to speak and wrestled that baby down the ground! I'm glad that we are being led by people who can take immediate action when needed.

All I can say is, I'm glad I'm not in the business of owning and trying to make money from a site such as this. I'd prefer to invest my money elsewhere.

It is very nice working in such a friendly environment.Hope they continue leading in the same good spirit

nbaquero wrote on March 17, 2015, 7:28 AM

allen0187 I hope also that all these steps help the site and the community succeed.

valmnz True, it is difficult to make money on a site like this but I think it has potential nonetheless.

nbaquero wrote on March 17, 2015, 7:29 AM

hkiptok Especially when it comes to difficult decisions.

Very true nbaquero.They have offered us an example to follow

A long time ago when Helium started to ban India writers, it caused a lot of unhappiness. They banned the IP address, and the current users could not login.

nbaquero wrote on March 17, 2015, 12:34 PM

hkiptok I find that most members of this community are also open and candid about any situation or problem that happens here, so I would say we are following the Admins example.

nbaquero wrote on March 17, 2015, 12:35 PM

scheng1 These kind of measures are never popular but it would hopefully mean the site (and its members) is better off and can be sustainable.

seren3 wrote on March 17, 2015, 12:52 PM

I too appreciate the fact that they are considering the future survival of the site. That makes it clear that it isn't a waste of time writing here!

nbaquero wrote on March 17, 2015, 6:18 PM

Seren3 That is a step in the right direction for sure.

Some things must be sacrificed for the site's future. Lessons are there to be learned. I agree, we should work as a community and things like that should be initiated by the site admins. They rock. My salute.

nbaquero wrote on March 18, 2015, 11:57 AM

Brillian I don't know if you were a member of other sites like this, but over there they just mistreat the members, and do not pay them. Not here, the Admins are clear and honest, plus communicate promptly.

FreyaYuki wrote on March 19, 2015, 6:36 AM

Well-said. I also like the honesty and how they always keep us informed and up-to-date. They tell us about new plans and changes so we won't have to be surprised when something happens. And they even ask us for our thoughts and opinions.

nbaquero wrote on March 19, 2015, 7:20 AM

7Freyayuki I hope more people realize this, and join the site

I am not sure how I missed this, but agree with you wholeheartedly. I do hope that we grow.
