    The saddest part is less than half the group took the time to vote.

    You know what, they just made it way to inconvenient. I mean no one ever actually checks SWOL or their e-mails over the course of a few months...

    No one takes the time to get swol at Skywest? Who will I lift with on overnights?

    Well to be fair, with the whole moderation thing I can see why people don't bother going on the forums.

    To be fair, the website doesn't work.

    I wonder whose fault that would be?

    Wait I'm new... Who's fault?

    If it's a really long political answer than I don't care. But if it's a clear, "him", then that's ok.

    Short answer: there's some to go around.

    Longer answer: We had a guy who managed it professionally for us. Then he quit. Hilariously or ironically, I inherited the thing because I was the only one who answered the phone (I should stop doing that) and knew anything about computers. The current thing (which is broken) was not supposed to be anything but a proof of concept and the funding for the new thing = not forthcoming and wasn't even close to front-burner for the current/re-elected administration.

    Responsibility rolls uphill as far as I can tell...

    I wonder if @Derg could give us a secret sub-forum to use, let people in who are vetted (i.e. that one Facebook group) and have some open conversation again. I'd be willing to do a face-to-face IROPS PA every 14 minutes when working DL but only every 16 minutes when working the other brands as a gesture of my gratitude :)

    Trust me, there is no such thing as a safe, "vetted" private Facebook group.

    Well, perhaps a relative level of vetting, privacy, and safety conducive to general shop talk. The current arrangment operates about as fast as the bulletin board in the crew lounge.

    Heh, when I was looking for crashpads/apartments I had WAY better luck with the actual bulletin board. Never got a peep on the sapa forums.

    OK, what's a step below a flat piece of cork in terms of usefullness?

    Over/under if it stays moderated when it comes back?

    I'm guessing he will use the same reasoning he has used for years now. Nothing changes
