Dear IGDA Members,
There is no reason why the IGDA leadership seeks to suppress posts that have been on-line and readily available for over a month. Also, great care was taken to hold the positions and maintain the threads so as to make it possible to restore posts as they were reviewed. The root of this issue was really the volume of reports and an attempt to make final decisions based on these older posts in light of the announcement of the special meeting, which will undoubtedly spark further forum discussions and reports.
There are a lot of things going on at the IGDA right now, and a relatively new set of folks handling the majority of them. Myself, David, Shelby and Alex have all been with the IGDA for less that 3 months. Unfortunately, this led to a mistake that created an unfortunate level of controversy, as we were attempting to resolve a backlog of requests before new ones came in. Rather than censorship, this was an error in communication, and a lack of ability to speedily resolve the post reports.
