Elecraft Equipment chat group

Michael Walker
Hi All

I am thinking of starting an Elecraft email forum that would focus only on
Elecraft equipment.

While I like this list for the Elecraft discussions, about 50% of it is
related to off topic items and they flood my inbox with hundreds of emails.

How many of you would be interested?

73 all, Mike va3mw

Re: Elecraft Equipment chat group

With this one we get "official" information when things happen. So most of
us would remain on this reflector for that. Why would we want to then join
another list to further dilute the information content. Count me as a no.

Count me in for a new group!  With all the NVIS-CB-Earthquake stuff and
other O.T. posts, I'm outtta here.  

As a new Elecraft owner, I signed on to learn about Elecraft.  I asked a few
questions about my Elecraft gear, got some good answers and supportive
replies.

But now there's too much non-Elecraft junk.  I'm gone!

Without a doubt....count me out!

Sometimes it is true that off topic discussions persist way too long, but we
just have to keep in mind that these guys own and are responsible for
running a profitable company and we should be grateful that they even have
any time to occasionally monitor this reflector. In my humble opinion, there
is nothing calling for another reflector except for those who may be too
lazy to reach for their delete key.

Let's not try to fix something that is not broken!

I'm sure we don't need another Elecraft group - what we do need is more
respect from those who think this is a place to post almost anything OT.

Not me either.

Not while I have a working delete key.
That plus lots of the "OT" threads are quite interesting.

In reply to this post by Michael Walker
Someone did change this to OT, but it really isn't.

As others have also mentioned is that this is a list that is heavily
diluted by so many OT issues.

This is the only list that I am part of that varies like a club meeting.
And, that is OK, it just isn't OK for all of us.

For those that have replied, directly to me, I'm running higher than 50%
for a unique list.

I'm only just outlining a need.

many thanks

Nope, not interested in a new forum.
I agree some topics stretch the interest quite a bit for an Elecraft
subject. But many times I learn something. And If I have no interest or get
bored with a subject I just use the Delete key.

Hi Mike,

I've seen this attempted with other forums for other topics.   Inevitably,
the OT emails reach the same level in the new forum as well.   It's just
human nature.

For my part, I'll stick with this Elecraft forum.

- 73 and good DX de Mike, K6MKF, Past President - NCDXC

It is getting out of hand.

We just had about 50 emails on RACES and MARS.  Even Eric told everyone to
shut it down as a moderator, yet everyone ignored him.  It seems (and I
haven't measured) that we are 50/50 off topic to on topic.

For those that would prefer to stay try to Elecraft equipment discussions,
it looks like I will be starting another group.  I'll let those interested
where it will be hosted by tomorrow.

For those that are not interested, that is fine.  No pressure here, just
trying to solve a problem.

What you may not realize, when Wayne and Eric are moderating emails, they
aren't working on Elecraft products and driving Elecraft forward.  This
would give them more time to do that.

many 73, Mike va3mw

Re: FW: Elecraft Equipment chat group

Jerry Moore
I'd suggest taking this off list directly to the list mods.
While your opinions are important; the community in it's entirety is
governed by Elecraft. Complaining to the list only results in a flurry of
'me too' or 'not me' posts that further exacerbate the issue.
On the air we ignore people that disrupt communications or otherwise break
the rules.
I'd suggest we take the same action on the list and internet at large.
Experience being a good teacher; we know that there are people who derive
enjoyment from causing drama and getting folks spun up.
Sometimes you just have to get away from the keyboard and go outside.

It is getting out of hand.

We just had about 50 emails on RACES and MARS.  Even Eric told everyone to
shut it down as a moderator, yet everyone ignored him.  It seems (and I
haven't measured) that we are 50/50 off topic to on topic.

For those that would prefer to stay try to Elecraft equipment discussions,
it looks like I will be starting another group.  I'll let those interested
where it will be hosted by tomorrow.

For those that are not interested, that is fine.  No pressure here, just
trying to solve a problem.

What you may not realize, when Wayne and Eric are moderating emails, they
aren't working on Elecraft products and driving Elecraft forward.  This
would give them more time to do that.

Re: Elecraft Equipment chat group

EricJ
In reply to this post by Michael Walker
Not a chance. Frankly, as a K1 and K2 owner, all the *K-line* posts are
OT to me. But there hasn't been an OT topic on this reflector that I
didn't find informative. This is a very tech savvy and interesting
group, and I value their input. It takes a long time to build a viable
community of any kind. This one is mature and healthy.

I filter out everything with a specific K-line model number. When a new
product is announced (like the KPA1500) it isn't filtered so I can learn
something about it. I have never owned an amp in 60 years and chances
are excellent I never will, but the product is still interesting--I read
every post. At some point, I'll add it to my filter.

Why are filters so difficult to do that someone would think starting a
new group would be easier?

This OT argument goes on in every single group from time to time. It's
the ULTIMATE example of OT imaginable.
