A big hello to TWL Family!
As an Admin of this prestigious blog, and a member since December '08, it really gives me a lot of pain to see The Writers Lounge in a state that it is today. This was the family we proudly called our second home. We encouraged our fellow writers to write even better, we celebrated special days, we laughed together and we cried together. But what I personally feel is that nothing is the same anymore.
A lot of people are new to this gang. Some of them were here since Day One and some of them joined us with time. This prestigious blog was started off by Asbah, Sandeep and Ste on 16.07.2008. From that very day, this journey began and it witnessed many people coming together and moving ahead in this journey.
It is quite heart-breaking to see certain disturbing activities like Politics, Monopoly etc. going on in the Lounge. A few weeks back, our founder Sandeep was ousted from the Lounge. No matter what personal grudges we hold against someone, it is certainly a very disturbing act when we delete him/her from the Lounge. It is my sincere request to each one of you to voice your opinion on this. Would you be very happy with anyone who deletes you from the Lounge on account of any personal grudge?
Sandeep, someone whom we fondly address as the 'Co-Founder' of the Lounge was DELETED from this place. He had nurtured this baby (The Writers Lounge) as much as any other founder did. Did any one raise a question - WHY? Folks, we are here as a family and not as slaves to someone. We do not have to necessarily agree with someone just because he is a Co-Founder of this Lounge. Believe me, this Lounge was created with a vision...it was visualized as an open platform where anyone can demand anything...can post anything....everyone is the owner here.
Secondly, Leo deleted himself from the Lounge since the changing face of the Lounge was disturbing him much. A lot of Admins are not active here, the reason for which has already been expressed.
I, as an Admin of this elite group blog, take the responsibility in my hands to bring about a serious change in this Lounge. I am thinking about the possibility of re-forming the Admin panel, incorporating new changes and your suggestions are welcome in this regard.
I would request each one of you to seriously consider the measures that we all can take to bring about a change in the Lounge and by the change I mean a POSITIVE one.
Thanks and big group hug to all,
