No, I wasn’t trolling you. While the VEX forum is greatly appreciated it has a blurred line between VEX @Bob_Mimlitch_III @Bob_Mimlitch and RECF @DanMantz .
I poked you because @DRow and I are at the bottom of the food chain. Some support from the lead person (Dan and Bob) would make this happen faster. And I wanted @cougarbots to get a fast response. Because we are all about supporting mentors and EP’s to make this 98% volunteer effort happen.
Neither I or any RECF staff have any direct involvement in any of the social media platforms that discuss our programs (there are others too). Nor do I or any RECF staff directly monitor posts on either the VEX Forum or FB Coaches Pages.
And here is where this will go off the rails. I’m one of the many mentors that was unhappy with the change to VEXIQ going from 4x8 to 6x8. I was told that this was a popular opinion on the FB Coaches pages, so that’s why it was done. In digging on the forum there was zero discussions on this before the fact. Pick the hill to die on, this shouldn’t be it.
Two key points:
Facebook is at the center of multiple disinformation law suits. And frankly they can’t give a << c channel connector >> about it. They make billions from selling advertising that they can target. They track you and send that info to key advertisers. Do this, dump into your feed “Bass fishing lures, what’s the best to buy” And then look in 24 hours how many lure deal you can get.
Second is my slam on FB users. I’'ve had more than a few mentors write to me and say they were on both foums. Yay you. So there are a ton more that never post here. Here is your chance to show up. Reply to this post that you are both a FB coach and you are here. For every one I’ll make a $100 donation to the RECF. (I expect to pay about $300)
Let me be clear. Faceslime is a company that make money through advertising and selling your demographics to other companies. Facedirt has zero investment in you, they are a leach on your skin. Facecrud makes money by creating an echo chamber so all the people in your group can reinforce that opinion. Fact check me roboteers about this, there are people on Facequagmire that think the earth is flat.
Lastly is this:
I am really, really hoping that Foster is just trying to get a rise from me because I can’t believe he really has that much disrespect for other coaches that like a different environment (as a side note, most of the most active coaches on FB are also active on here).
Nope, I have zero disrespect for the way they present. The roboteers on Discord mock me and I respect their ability to do that. I do have an issue that it’s
- a walled garden
- its Facemud.
I bet that they are awesome people aliening with the goals of RECF and the rest of us. Oddly, there are very few posts here. But see the challenge above, I put money where my fingers are… (Do we still say money where my mouth is?)
I tagged you on getting a subfourm set up since @DRow is far from the top of the food chain. I ping you @DanMantz and @BradLaure to make things happen.
And (I should make this my signature) never reflect my bad behavior that I’m not passionate about the roboteers.
