So you live in Canada.....?
I can't really say anything that hasn't already been said. For weeks after Nitemare left, the forum was basically run by Flash with the assistance from us Super Mods. Now for a bunch of people who (basically) don't know how to run a forum properly, that's spells disaster. Things weren't getting done. Spammers would get banned only to rejoin and to the exact same thing. It came to a point that some of us were asking ourselves why we should care about this forum when the higher-ups don't?
Anyways, I agree with the rest, employ a guy who knows what he's doing. Bring back Lee. I mean, you have to spend money to make money, right? He's obviously done something right, as this forum has grown to one of the biggest on the 'net.
