Keeping things simple is not always easy. Yours truly learns, as he ventures into the “The Seaplane Forum” world. The first few weeks have brought amazing people along and a lot of dynamics. However, trying to help people to network free of hassle is not easy. You may end up with a bunch of people in one place, and giving them all their own space seems as if it is a good thing. Yet, others, who just want to read, and find information can get confused. The more there is, the more they have to read to arrive at what they are looking for. A dear friend had a lot to do with the creation and launching of this forum. 5 other special people made it possible and gave it life. One of the things the friends of this forum wanted, is a place that does not disconnect people from each other. After this weekend, I looked at my forum and read a few emails I had gotten over the weekend and decided, it was time to simplify and de-clutter. This may annoy existing members, who had gotten used to finding certain things in certain spaces, yet, I feel it is better to make major changes while the place is still young. Unused sections have been removed. A developer has been contacted for fixing a few small issues. When you log on next time, take the time to look around. We are looking for seaplane specific safety events and the CFI/DPE network would like to see a few new members showing hands. Grassroots is what started the forum and it is my belief, that grassroots will keep it growing and successful.
