You know, this forum is here for ya'll to use for FREE. It's not here to make money for Kyle (it costs considerable money to pay for the software and server and such that is capable of hosting a website this large and picture-heavy), certainly not an income stream to justify the amount of time and effort he spends here, and the moderation team VOLUNTEERS our time also for free. We all work quite hard- behind the scenes the vast majority of the time- to keep this forum an informative and friendly place to spend time.
When Kyle makes a decision and explains the reason he's making that decision- he has nothing to hide nor anything to gain other than his blatantly expressed goals here. The changes that have been made over the years are VERY consciously geared towards keeping TPT a safe and friendly resource FOR HOBBYISTS, not a commercial venture.
If people needing technical assistance wish to start a new thread in the Board Suggestions/Questions forum with specific questions, feel free to do so.
I, however, am tired of reading continual complaining, so am closing this one.
