Pez,
Please take this as constructive criticism.  I'm very glad that AC now has a Cable Circle!  But....I am a moderator of a fairly new Circle (HiRez Music) and it is not the easiest thing to promote/market, so I can't imagine the steep incline you've created by not mentioning the product category in the Circle name.  I stumbled across it, and I'm on the damn Forum all the time!!  I would agree with Paul and others that something like "Cables - The Path of Least Resistance" would get you far fewer headaches..."oh, i thought this was for DIY parts (resistors)"  or "I thought this was a non-audio Zen/yoga kind of thing".  Take it from me, a newbie moderator, that the dust that is stirred up when you move posts and whole threads is as if you called their mother out!

Ted quite accurately summed up my thoughts, too, on this....I simply stumbled upon it and tried to find out whats going on in this new circle.  Having 'cables' in the circle name would likely draw a more visitors and damp down your mod duties deflecting aberrant posts away.

From a long-time mod AND marketing major.  Glad to have you back among the Facilitator ranks again Jason even if it isn't your most suited circle (which Fight Club I believe was for you :wink:)

Let's give the name issue a rest please guys. It's Jason's circle and he decides.

Thanks for taking this on Pez :thumb:

I'm sticking to the name. I appreciate everyone's input, but I'm not entirely sure where this fear of newbs frantically and aimlessly not knowing where to post their cable related questions to came from. :scratch: If anything that's a good thing. I don't want to see a bunch of crap posts like "Do cable REALLY make a difference????" Not that I have a problem with people who don't think cables sonics are of importance, it's just not what I had envisioned for this circle in the first place. More of a place to discuss cable DIY, what brands people are fond of, connectors, etc etc. That said anything and everything goes (except for DBT debate)

Hi Pez,

Congrats on the new circle!  :thumb: I think you'll do a fine job of it and I look forward to "hanging out" in here when I get the chance. Thanks for putting forth the effort.

Best,
John

I'm the one 5th from the right on the bottom picture.  :P

There is a history from my name. Tyson said that I'm skinny and open my mouth too much, like a Pez dispenser.  :thumb:

But unlike a Pez dispenser, when I open my mouth, instead of candy only truth comes out.  :P

Well hello everyone, I'll be facilitating the circle from now on.  Pez has been the founder and long time facilitator of this circle doing a yeoman's job through some enlightening and sometimes difficult threads.  He's now moved on to greater things and I'm sure we all wish him the best in his new endeavor, Abbingdon Music Research / iFi. 

Most of the regulars know me here and I'll be applying the same style on these pages, which is to facilitate engaging discussion using a light hand in moderating.  I see no need to change anything at this time, all rules and guidelines remain in place.  Please feel free to pm me with any suggestions or concerns, and let's have a great time talking about cables.

Hope your pay raise was as big as mine was!  :thumb:

EDIT: On a serious note... I just noticed that the top post on this page was from John, TCG.  :|

Just pay cuts here Bob.  :roll:

Yeah, every time I see one of John's posts I get a little twinge, like he's gone but still here.

I logged out and logged back in but I still cannot find a way to create a New Thread or New Post. I have posted in the past successfully but can't seem to do it today. I usually go to the most appropriate Circle and post. I use Windows 8.1 if that makes any difference.

If there was an issue it appears to be fixed, there's a New Topic button on the circle page.

One minute later, I can't edit my post.
Anyway there is a new topic button in other circles.
