I don't know why I'm bothering to answer this...


Ilya is LITERALLY the only person left in the company. If you want something for an assignment then buy it.

Aluva-luva was the person that sent me my Rumble winnings. However, I have a feeling that that might have been a one-time thing.

As Stormy stated before, though, there will be no new community administrator. I feel like her telling you to contact Ilya should have been sufficient as an answer.

That's Antoneo. He's in customer service and is not trained on the ways of the community. Ilya is the only person with this information and the only person anyone should contact about anything community related. Antoneo sent that as a favor to me because I didn't want you to miss out on the GC.

Aw, thank you! I'm very flattered. : )

Thanks for explaining as well. I've dealt with Antoneo before, with several of the issues that I've had on EF, and he's been great to me. I know what you mean, though; there's a difference between customer service and community management.

part of my discussion post: "she (Stormy) has said to contact Ilya. I have, but have heard nothing back". obviously I followed the announcement Stormy had already made regarding Ilya.

Have you watched the news? Atlanta is being gripped by a severe ice storm today, and all the residence are staying home -- the roads are empty and no one is working -- do you have a life and death situation you need Ilya to respond to? Can it wait?

Atlanta is going through an ice storm and is essentially closed.

Administration on websites is rarely quick to respond. Even when Stormy was in charge of the forums, I rarely expected a quick response! For matters that aren't very severe, I often don't even expect a reply and am instead surprised when I get one!

However, Stormy said to contact Ilya, and there's no other news here. Stormy's mentioned, above, that Ilya is essentially the one left to contact. You could, alternatively, contact Antoneo if it's a customer service related issue.

Just because Ilya didn't immediately reply doesn't mean that EF suddenly hired somebody else to run the forums and are totally keeping it a secret from everyone but you.

What does sarcasm have to do with anything? You specifically wrote "Ilya is LITERALLY the only person left in the company" and emphasized it in boldface so I asked. Apparently, he's not literally the only person left in the company.

buying isn't the same as getting monthly assignments.

It's just a figure of speech; it sounds like you're in dire need of Ilya's immediate response, as if you're in some kind of emergency.

I don't know why it would sound like I'm in dire need. I made a simple statement, nothing that eeked of emergency.

since Ilya isn't responding, maybe he's not in charge. maybe other members are getting a response(s) from someone else - hmmmmm.

oh btw, did you read the above posts in which SYN mentioned that's she's received assistance from Aluva-luva & Antoneo?

You are beyond ridiculous. What part of email Ilya do you not understand? There are four people left -- Fred, Rufina, Ilya and Antoneo. Fred and Rufina don't have time for your bullshit amd Ilya is ignoring you. SPEND MONEY TO GET WHAT YOU WANT

why do you have to be so rude? these are the exact kind of comments that flew back & forth last summer that led to nasty & nastier uncalled for comments that let all hell break loose. nothing good comes from ill will. and maybe somethings have changed since you left.

Stormy is no longer working here, but has continued to check in a little. That is all we know as far as the community. We should contact Ilya for community related questions and Antoneo is the order customer service person who answers the support tickets. That's it as far as we are concerned for now.

As mentioned previously on this topic (scroll up a little), Aluva-luva is Antoneo. Antoneo has been here for a while, but he doesn't do community related things. He's only one person, and the help I've been getting from him is the same as it has always been.

ok, so Aluva-luva is Antoneo.

Here is my little two cents:

EF has basically been chopped down to a retail only site--with the forums still active for users to participate on. Many sites do fall apart due to the inactivity or care of the owners once the site has served their purpose. I run across this constantly with my SBA work...

There are no more assignments, community or participation requirements. There is no one to moderate the forums, answer questions, or regulate the previous perks/programs on EF. The forum and community aspects are now regulated by the members who choose to stay and participate. Sad situation, but an unfortunate reality on the internet.

I actually got chosen for a free assignment after Stormy left, so I don't know about the no-assignments thing.

The rest seems to be accurate, though, and explains both why Ilya isn't responding to Edeneve and why other members have not named somebody else.

I agree with js250 and Sincerely. I think this is our new normal, and it's up to everyone to stay or go. These things happen, and there isn't much to do about it.

My only "beef" is the fact that they should cancel the Mentor Program like they did last time if they aren't going to respond to Mentor questions.

There is no list of administrators because there aren't any community admins any longer. As mentioned above, the only person left to contact for community matters is Ilya, and that's not even necessarily his domain. If you need help with something related to the commercial or technical (like switching over an email ) side of the site, the support function's the way to go.
