RE: [Computerbank] bad vibe unfortunately
Who's this guy "to but in here" you're probably asking .
And maybe your right but I thought id offer my 10 cents
worth just in case
I came in and joined CB a few months back
I was impressed with the philosophy and the possibilities
that could be achieved by you guys and felt inspired to
join in the cause
And I watch with great interest.
As CB develops from a bright idea in the mind of its
visionary into an
Invaluable mechanism for building the "bridge between the
have's and have not's"
And all involved are to be congratulated on the results
you've been able to achieve.
having said that as you'll no doubt agree theirs yet a
long way to go.
While I hesitate to criticise
It took me a good 90mins on public transport each way to
attend CB in west Melbourne
which I did for a few weeks but each time I arrived there
I found the days planned activities
that had each time been cancelled postponed or delayed or
altered to the Point where I felt
my day had been wasted.
Again id stress that I'm in no way intending to belittle
the efforts of any one here but
Not to put to finer Point on it :

& training sessions. )
I personally felt that it was assumed that because I was a
volunteer I had time to just waste
and having spend hours in transit in the hopes that what I
expected to occur when I arrived might
transpire. Which was more often was not the case.
Under such circumstances Enthusiasm quickly wanes and
while I understand the benefits of flexibility within an
there's a balance that needs to be met .
Maybe firmer Time scheduling, Regular planned Events,
Dedicated training sessions for us "wet behind the ears
just a thought
keep up the great work folks .

Just wondering if Sally or anyone who knows the details
could explain just
why she has given up on computerbank.
Was she unable to get in touch with anyone? Were
commitments made and then
not acted upon? Did she get know reponse?
If we have an idea of just what the problem is we might be
able to improve
>From the melbourne point of view I know things are quite
hectic and immediate
concerns such as training next days system builds and
answering support calls
suck up most of the time.
