Dear Edenites,

First, let me apologize for not addressing the community sooner. My lack of communication was not intended to create more anxiety but to not draw more attention to the situation. I appreciate the concern and confusion that our ... More
Thanks for reaching out...on a side note,I think the changes have been happening too quickly for some of us to keep up with them. Every time I log on something has changed and this is aggravating. Finding out a change happened afterwards instead of significantly beforehand so that I could have planned is unnerving.

Guys, the recording is fake.
The thing is though that if it's fake, it's played into everybody's hands because of the vague (and also misleading) info that has been shared among the 'family' in the last few days - the 'family' that the fired Admins have played a huge part in creating but have apparently ultimately been fired for not doing(?).

For example we had the 'mass email' that we were told didn't go to everyone because of a 'glitch' but was actually only sent to a few dozen members. We've also seen all of the Admins fired for 'not meeting goals' but one of the Admins who worked alongside them come back in to help. That's not aimed at Stormy as a person, it's the fact that an ex-Admin who worked alongside the 'underperforming' ones has come back to help out.

I agree, the information we are getting is highly contradictory. Stormy said the the admins were good at their job and they weren't leaving because of that, but Fred just said that they weren't meeting the goals he had. Which is it?

I think we need some real answers!

Good luck in getting them. I agree with you, but unfortunately don't see it happening any time soon.

Not meeting this particular goal does not mean you're bad at the daily required tasks, just means you didn't clear the hurdle.

I think it is very sad and i will miss everyone that was let go, and i agree it was a very harsh and blunt way off doing it... but sometimes in a bad economy you have to do such things, he thought he was handling it the right way and doing what was best for HIS company ... I appreciate the effort to ill us in now and clear things up, even if the audio isnt a fake I dont see where it should cause this kind of uproar ... people are upset and lashing out and thats sad.

I for one will stick it out and support the site that has given me so much, hopefully they will be able to come out the other side of this ok.... but i not I'll still appreciate them for the opportunity they gave all of us

I think people are upset because if the video isn't a fake we have been flat out lied to, saying that things are just changing, bringing in fresh eyes, etc.

This really didn't clear anything up. Everything seems to be contradicting itself.

Hi everyone,
One more time:
1. People were fired. This is never done without a reason. The reason in this case was strategy: the goals have not been met;
2. Community services continue. Everything community was accustomed to will continue without interruptions;
3. Financial position of the company is stable.
4. Inventory levels are being analyzed. One of the problems is that what Community wants to have is substantially different from what customers purchase. This is why some of the products are brought in in small quantities and some have plentiful stock.

I will not be posting anymore on the subject and consider it closed.

Regards, Fred
