[games_access] SIG, Ablegamers

Hi,

I do not understand why AbleGamers and this SIG cannot work together.
Maybe we should ask ourself what do we want and how do we reach it.
What is our philosophy?

It is true that at this SIG we work only via Email. And some projects did
not even start.
But we have to keep in mind that doing what we do, is not easy!
When someone in this group really wants a project, he or she can always
suggest it.
So before claiming there is nothing, the person should become active.

I have a special philosophy and I found out that this does not suit the
philosophy of AbleGamers.
This does not mean AbleGamers is bad or wrong, we have just other
philosophies.

At the SIG I always get feedback, tips and information that help me.

Best regards,
Sandra

Betreff: Re: [games_access] SIG in Austen?

I don't know details of any 'hijack', but I am well aware of the paranoia
and narcissism that taints AbleGamers. I have personally be made to feel
very unwelcome there despite a number of attempts to contribute positively.
I've received e-mails questioning my efforts in this field, had comments on
AbleGamers removed from the site, then been told to post again but to be
honest. If others (including Michelle) have been made to feel the way I have

in the past by Mark Bartlet and yourself, then it would explain why they may

have left the AbleGamers ship.

This bad-feeling and negativity is absurd in the light of the movement. It's

nice to be nice! Could we try now?!
