Wasn’t that long ago that I had a sook about the MiG Ayesa fansite community.
I said that I was stubborn, and wouldn’t give up after maintaining MiGCentral for almost nine years.
I can’t be bothered being stubborn when the official MiG Ayesa site goes and cheeses off a large chunk of the current communities. Through no individual’s fault of course, but by ignorance and assumption that we weren’t fed up already.
This time it’s meant to be different.
But like last time, a fan is running the new setup, behind the veil of an administrator login. This is where some of that ignorance comes in – and the assumption that we wouldn’t realise what the hell’s going on.
We don’t like being lied to.
We don’t like being treated like our credentials need to be verified before being accepted into this new community.
I can see where this will go.
Unfortunately, the way I nurtured my corner of the community is shot to pieces. Nine years is a long time to put up with bullcrap, and I guess we’re all guilty of putting up with a relationship that should have ended a long time ago.
I wish I had the right to chuck a huge hissy fit. To claim that my time is worthy. But I don’t have the right, and my time isn’t worthy. I need to take my own advice and realise it’s differentiate or die.
Today I closed the MiG sections on MiGCentral. I’m lucky that I have a community that extends beyond our common interest, so will keep the site running to allow that independent community to keep going.
It’s time I got a new hobby.
