Oh No!
Trying to recruit again over a sad goodbye?

Karen - you were very good to me, and I wish you well wherever you choose to be in this alternative media, and elsewhere. We shall miss you, and we shall all miss each other when we need our friendship the most.

This sad situation should be turned around into positive mode - a release for some to carry out the mission this forum intended (lessons learned), and to those here to promote goodwill and pro-humanitarian activities. We are aware, let us promote awareness however we can, gently and with back-up of facts - so everyone can reason and react rationally without fear.

There is no rift - there is positive diversification - we will all reunite as we have the same goals - to save humanity and our wonderful Gaia, and progress in this incredible process. We are truly privileged.....

Dear Karen, I read each day's new threads and posts with a feeling of trepidation. And yes, today another nail in Avalon's coffin.

You will be greatly missed. You have spent so much of your time and energy to make this forum a home for many of us. And if a problem occurred you were our Ms Fixit! You have first hand knowledge of what's going on behind the scenes and the fact that you have made this decision speaks highly of your integrity and respect for yourself.

God bless future projects. Will you ever be replaced? Never as far as I am concerned! Diane

Hi Karen, I have not been around long and you don't know me, but while everyone else is wishing you well, I am asking you not to go. Please take a leave, re-access your feelings after a time, and then make your decision. You are hurt, you are feeling used and violated, but you are needed here.

Take a time out. (to think)

Karen, I've always had a strong telepathic picture of you as somebody who's amazingly dedicated and conscientious and driven, no matter what the cost was to yourself. You've set a wonderful standard for other Mods to come part way to emulating.

I've also always felt it would be a good thing for you personally to step back a lot, though. I have a strong impression that your body's physical complaints were mostly the result of your taking on too big a burden all the time. I believe the problem with the nerve in your leg is often the result of overstraining the back. So maybe your body's been trying to tell you for a while that it's time to take things easy? Your amazing generosity is a beautiful thing and it's proof that your spirit is highly evolved. But there are times when it's appropriate to turn one's generosity off and to feel perfectly OK about doing so.

Sorry to see you go Karen and best of luck in your new ventures...you've been very helpful right from the beginning when I joined the Forum offering advice and help with technical problems...thank gosh I kept my nose out of the Thuban thread....ignorance (in this case) is bliss!

What Karen is saying is that decisions are being made and they are not consensus based. Meaning the decisions are made prior to the meeting that involved some of the team and she is not in agreement with what is going on.

The other issue is that this forum will be shut down in a few weeks and there will be no more posting. Basically, the fourm is leaving the members. Some members will be invited onto Avalon 2 which is not subscription based. However, from what Tommy is posting it seems that all members are invited to join Kerry's forum and there are already approximately 900 members registered but not posting yet.

I say enjoy the time that's left and while you're still posting on this forum please be kind to one another. As for myself... I'm one of those folks who just tends to hang in there until the last day. I'll say adieu then.

"Karen thank you so much for all your hard work and spending your personal time here with us all and being part of my/our growth here at Avalon.

May all that you have done here change the world for the better!!!!!!!!!!"

Ouch Karen is hard to say goodbye, too many good wonderful souls are leaving .
Thank you very very much for your incredible contribution to project avalon.
I hope that Bill can come out of the shadows and make a plead for all to stay if I am not asking for too much. Bill I know you are a busy man but this site is in terrible need of your attention , please.

Thank you, thank you so much everyone for your kind thoughts and meaningful gestures. I wish I had the energy for more individuated replies. Ummmmm maybe tomorrow, maybe not. This place is quite addicting. Cold turkey may be the only way out. Whoopee - we change to daylight savings time tonight. Must get away from the computer.

Step Away From the PC... !!

I quite agree with you.

I said it all along.

http://www.projectavalon.net/forum/s...ead.php?t=8937

Good luck Karen. I remember you since you were a heart of gold.. I remember when you became a moderator.

Many changes, it's true, but perhaps the real truth is that the time is coming to s**t or get off the pot. Avalon has achieved its purpose. There are the people we wanted to meet. Right there. If we wanted a community we can get their addresses.

Everything else is just ego and defence of ego.

Yours won't be the last goodbye thread, but I am glad the forum is leaving us and not the other way around.

Bye for now... I baked you a cake...

Kula, I hope you spread your fabulous cakes around fast and furious before a lot of us can no longer see them. What a great interest you have there
, it's hilarious.
Will cakes be welcome on Av2?

oh kula, well I changed my reply from OBSESSION to interest, thinking it might offend. My god, it might be catching! I feel a cake stalk coming on. Ever have your cake and eat it too? Photos or it didn't happen.
I bet Karen has never baked a cake. just staying on topic... just. bye karen and stay away for your health's sake and very very best to you. XO
