What's that Ustream chat thing? What do you need to use it?

It's a video chat. My computer can view the video, but I guess my campus doesn't allow the computer port used for chat.

I'm not sure what the problem is that Cody is having, but you do need to create an account on Ustream.TV in order to take part in the chat related to the live video for this event.

I'm not sure either. I thought maybe it would eventually work, but it doesn't.

I'm not going to lie: I'm not very fond of this. This is the first time in my history of being with TCC that I feel very uneasy about something. I've had nearly 100 transactions, all of them have made me feel like a kid in a candy store compared to this.

Jethro might be a good guy, but how long until he begins wanting more power? Or begins abusing his power? What if he overhauls things completely? Would you agree with him?

I'm very uneasy about this move. I understand you need more personal time and you have a life outside of TCC, but does Jethro even know a dang thing about the hobby? Or about running a website?

I'm with Steve on this one. Don't expect my arms to be open for him when he arrives. And while I could've PMd you about this, I think the entire TCC has the right to know where people stand.

No. He's from my side of the family, so his last name is Williams. wink.gif

skatalite,

I will respond to your concerns shortly, but need to head into a meeting for a little while first.

I totally understand how a change like this might cause some members to feel a little uneasy. However, it's a necessary change and one that we'll all look back on as a very positive event.

Trust me... Jethro is not motivated by power. In fact, one of his biggest concerns was that he might be too timid. I trust that he'll get over that though and will do just fine. In terms of changes, I'll still be remaining as President & CEO. Therefore, I will certainly have a say in any drastic changes to the way the site is operated. wink.gif

I'll let Jethro speak for himself later tonight - especially about his knowledge of the hobby, technology and more. In addition, I'm certain that he'll share additional information about his management experience.

Fair enough. I don't mind answering questions and I know that Jethro feels the same way.

Here's my view, in short:

I was not thrilled to see that TCC would be seeing less of Bob, a person was has done an amazing job running TCC. I'm also a little concerned because Jethro does not know the histories and backgrounds of each of TCC's members like Bob does (post counts, transactions, and other statistics don't tell the entire story of a member).

However, I also feel that Bob deserves our trust. He DOES have a life beyond TCC, and I don't think he would do something to jeopardize this site or its members. Moreover, I would like for Jethro to feel welcome upon his arrival here at Trading Card Central.

We should give him a chance, but let me ask this: If he liked the hobby and enjoyed it, why didn't he join the site before?

I'm not going to suggest that Jethro's interest in the hobby is as strong as mine, but I'm sure it will grow as he becomes more involved with this great community. Although, his wife is a little worried that his collection could become the size of mine in a short period of time. laugh.gif

In addition, his work has been very demanding in recent years. Due to a recent change in his work situation though, he has more time and was very open to helping at this time.

Sometimes, things just all seem to work out...

Ok, I just wanted to know. Let's wish him the best and give him the warm welcome that we give to every new member. Also, let's remember he is from Bob's family, he isn't a stranger. Maybe we should relax and give him the chance he deserves.
