After taking the time to gather and compose the material in the thread Master List of Things to Fix on Basenotes, I, and I expect many others, hoped we would get some feedback on what might be do-able to restore functions to this beloved forum.
To our wish list Grant responded:
I understood "I'll pass this on" to mean that much of the site's management is now in the hands of Huddler. So, I sent a private message to HuddlerSteph:
Could you or some representative provide feedback on the issues of concern to our members at Basenotes?
Of course, you can't promise particular results by particular dates, but some expression of attention would be appreciated.
It wouldn't take much effort for one of us senior BNers to lead members away to another forum en masse, and I wouldn't choose to play that Pied Piper role, but if our concerns aren't respected and addressed, it's simply a natural outcome that we'd copy our reviews over to Fragrantica and post our SotDs there.
Weekly updates would be the professional way to handle this and would go a long way toward building a sense of trust, which is in short supply thus far.
So that I'm clear on my role here: I am simply here to answer technical support issues. That thread was forwarded off to our team and is under review. From there, Grant will be consulted and he, himself will speak for his site.
In regards to senior BN members, I do not have any comment or say in regards to their actions or intentions. Again, I work for Huddler and thus, am here to support the team that works with Grant.
Thanks for understanding.
So, apparently we're waiting for Huddler to figure out if we'll get anything close to our original Basenotes back. Sure would be nice to get some reassurance directly from "the team." Yeah?
