"The thing is, we're all volunteers and sometimes work, home life and so on get in the way of doing BFS stuff!"
Hi Jack - things go in stops and starts around here sometimes, I'm afraid. The thing is, we're all volunteers and sometimes work, home life and so on get in the way of doing BFS stuff! I know the feeling very well as I've been struggling to keep up with posting news and events myself of late!
So, I suspect that's the reason if mainstream publisher book reviews have been a little slow getting online recently. There are a few of us working away trying to keep the website looking fresh and new - me with the news, me and Del with events, Phil and Craig (and is there someone else? My apologies as I've forgotten who it is!) doing different types of reviews. So please bear with us if some things go a little slow once in a while. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible, as they say!
I'm sorry, Caroline, but I don't really buy this. I know you
work hard on keeping the news section on the website up to date (not to mention the web administrator), but other than Warhammer fans there have been scant few reviews of anything else recently. The whole idea of removing reviews from Prism
and putting them straight onto the website was to make them more timely. Not happening.Other than you and Del Lakin-Smith
, few if any of the new administration seem to have time to spare to make much of an appeareance on this forum either, in sharp contrast to the previous two years or so. Stephen Theaker, then David Howe always made sure they had time to answer questions here and provide members with updates. By now there would have been pictures of the Journal
's next cover with news about some of the material to be in it, not to mention when it will be out. Interaction between the new administration and members seems to have stumbled to a halt.
I understand that at least one prominent member of the committee has resigned. If so, there has been no official mention of this or an appeal for volunteers to replace this person.
If the BFS is to build upon its growth over the past few years it needs to get its act in order. If there is a problem, then people who do have the time to spare to fill these jobs should be sought out and secured. Silence is the society's worst enemy.
