QLSG Problems - suggestions here.

This is in reply to KSA's long freaking post on:http://www.qatarliving.com/node/569589

This is my own view as a member on the subject. (All rights reserved) :p

No one forced anyone to join, no one forced anyone to leave. Members who dont like certain people joining in the events can really go to hell. the group doesnt belong to anyone in particular and everyone is welcome. If you have any problem with a member sort it out urself or just ignore them at gatherings. We joined the group to make friends not enemies.

Doesnt matter who runs the show, but the show must go on. You are making efforts to get everyone together for which i feel you are being under appreciated, when Darude left no one of the entire whatever no. of members came forward to take his place, typical as everyone just wants to sit on their asses and then point fingers.

The problem: Members such as me are fed up with the same old activities. members like me dont really want to meet at the same old places (souq waqif) for sheesha/dinner/coffee.
Solution: You as the manager when you have time go out and search for other venues. It IS your responsibility to do so. As members it is also OUR responsibility to suggest places we like and recommend it to YOU so you can arrange to make reservations etc if needed.

The problem: Picking an ideal time or day. Some members cant make it some days some cant make it at a certain time.
solution: 4 weeks in a month, pick ONE day in each week to do ONE activity. Dinner/coffee/sheesha/movie/bowling/pool etc and keep it a fixed day. if mondays are fixed for coffee let everyone else adjust their schedules to that day, not YOU adjust to their needs. Unless its a special occasion falling on a specific day like the desert safari for eg.

The problem: Prices. Not everyone feel comfortable spending 100 to 200 bucks per meet up my friend. Take into consideration that there are many among us who are on a tight budget too.
Solution: Think of things to do where everyone contributes towards enjoyment. for eg if bowling costs 40 bucks a game 4 members can contribute 10 riyals and enjoy an evening of bowling. Go out and get us special deals from such places i'm sure if you make the effort to ask and we are a big group i'm sure there are places out there that will give us some good group discounts etc.

Somethings i can think of that can be fun.
1. Garage sales
Everyone has stuff to throw out or not wanted around the house. members dont think about making profit all the time, If you have a book to sell that your really not interested in keeping anymore even if you want to sell it keep a attractive price for it like 10 bucks or something along those lines. We can do that on a Friday.
2. How about renting movies and watching them in any members homes? doesnt cost you much just get chips/snacks and soft drinks at the most you'll be spending 10 bucks. Everyone can have fun.
3. Long drives. Petrol is cheaper than water, take advantage of the fact. After darude's meaningless drive over night which i enjoyed very much that has not happened again. Qatar has a lot to explore. Lets hope into our cars and just DRIVE! i want to have another late night long drive with beach side camp bbq..WORK ON IT KSA.

hmm ok i've been bitten by the long posts bug too but these are just my thoughts hope they are helpful. Other members feel free to add up.

Ok, I have read a lot to say the LEAST...and this is what I have got to say...

First of all, Smoke...trust me, I read this forum in the best ways possible...and I totally understand what you are saying, what you're trying to say, and what you mean to say...I understand the suggestions except for a line or two and I do personally think what you say is quite right to start with...as everyone says, TWO CENTS WORTH!

Scarlett...Hello beautiful, welcome back from the US, and good to have you back...what smoke said might sound different but the only reason I didnt take off on him is because I know him personally and he's just like that...as he says, NO SUGAR Coating...yes he did give me a LOT OF WORK, but as they say, He aint gonna escape the driving too... :P

Thanks as always for your never ending support and I truly do look out for your posts...as it goes, it is TIME alright to show who the BOSS is...!!!

Alexa...again, thanks for your support too...and my two wonderful ladies, lets not stir things up...cos what Smoke said is what I have taken in the right sense...!!!

FS...hey there my numero Uno...as always knowing me, you know what I would react to anything...!!! LOL! And yes I do realize what you say and will work on it...!!!And soooo right to say this is SUMMER TIME...so lets hold the horses alright people...

And guys and girls of QL whoever is reading this,

When I first started QL, I used to work on a different job and used to have lot more free time on hands, which helped me to be more active, and make so so so many new friends...infact all the people on this thread, are my good friends, except for some who have taken dislike to me and dont talk to me anymore for something I am not even aware off...for them I'm just waiting for them to realize that some Forum Online is not as worth as a Frienship Offline...wake up guys OOOO you know whom I m talking about...!!!Anyways moving on, ever since I moved into my permanent job having this life, it is becoming more demanding at work and more busier with new projects coming this way...for which reason, I only manage to READ what is going on, rather than WRITE as frequently as I used to...but having said that, I still manage to post a line or two when I'm at my desk...I still enjoy reading the early morning posts where I see my dear friends, Loulsy, Khanan, Smoke, FS, Scarlett, NFH, MJ, Ashwin, Arein, Rizks, Alexa, Drac, DaRude and a few others get it on...(I used to love the morning kiss and talk with Darude that I used to have with Khanan making a Threesome :P LOL) but yea as time passes on, I'm just getting a touch busy...

But having said that people, I would also like to say that it is also the responsibility of the Individual Members to join in and have some fun on the various outings and not sit back home cos they DONT KNOW ME or dont feel right with me, I know I do have to increase my rapport with people...but on the other hand...people...its a Social gathering and you will meet everyone for the first time INCLUDING ME! So why reservations...? The other day, Alexa pointed out the Heat factor which is also true at the moment, UKENG pointed out not his type of events, if it is his, he'll be there, again valid point, not all can be a match to everyone, Smoke pointed out some valid points, again same thing could be monotonous, surely need a touch of a change, more like a Blend of Routine with New found Chaos...which will be worked on...

People, inspite of All this, it is still going to the wire where they say, a performance, an outcome successful, of any Event or a Team depends NOT ONLY with the Manager but also the People under THAT team and who turn up on THAT day to make it one BIG successful Event...

So guys, all that I have to say, is, whilst I plan and chalk out a formula to get this group back on track with some good excitement, how about each one of you also do take it upon you to find something new to put in here, and do try amidst all your busy schedules to make it to some events from time to time (Not every single one of them, cos I know it is not fair) but just from time- to - time people...to turn up not basing your outing on the criteria of New, Old, Superior, Inferior, Caste, Race, Sex, Religion, Ritual, etc etc...but Just coming out to have a good time, meet up with some old faces, talk to some NEW, and above all TO HAVE A GOOD TIME!

It is not everyday, that a Forum like QL wakes up and provides a little platform called QLSG which has grown quite big till today and has provided quite a few people with a good number of friends and some with even more than just friends...!!! So lets not WASH that away and lets make a CHANGE!

If anyone has taken any offence from this post, then I would only say, Look beyond Just the offence cos there is a lot of excitement coming your way...!!!

Cheers people...

And as always, to my wonderful ladies on here, Dont' miss Me too much cos all you have to do is just think about me and I' SHALL BE THERE!

To the guys, aaaah dont even bother thinking about me...LOL! Kidding guys...

To the people in BETWEEN, (Ashwindoke, dont go feeling all too guilty and looking in the Mirror, I'm not TALKING about you LOL!) well stay Right where You are, cos You are nice the way you are...!!! Heheheh!

KSA!

So I take that, this shall be the end of fights, Twits, wits, and lets say PEACE WITH A LOT OF FUN FROM NOW!

Scouting for new ones is something KSA can handle....

m saying this cause you still take lot on interest in QLSG things...

And honestly ... you are the one who can and should support KSA in such rough times....

Again - IF you want something good to happen in QLSG...

Scarlett if i've made my own bed of thorns you seem to be bleeding more compared to the 100+ other QLSG members. Anyways to show you how "mature" i am i'll take your posts as welcomed suggestions, you make very good valid points that KSA is too busy with his own personal life and work and that I DO NOT know diddly squat about anything. You are the wise one. Congrats on showing me the way i was so blind before this. Thank you so much :)

The reason I haven't put in my two cents worth (and NOT whining) is because I've done that before...helping set things up, that is. For the most part, I've been gone most of this spring and haven't been able to attend any of the QLSG outings. So...hence, I kept my mouth shut. WHEN have you EVER heard Alexa or myself whine about anything having to do with QLSG?

KSA is, from what I have observed on here and email, doing a bang up job with the SG. Perhaps I read more into your post than was meant, but geez dude...get a life and stop putting more work on KSA!! He did what no one else wanted to do, take over the group as manager.

Now that being said...you can go kiss a camel's behind, you little twit.

FS....I never had any problems with Smoke..but I do with this thread as he's gone and made more work for KSA in saying that he should find new things to do, get cheaper rates, ect...You know as well as I do how busy KSA is just with his job and life.

To KSA...good job, dude...keep up the good work, and IF you need any help and I'm available, I'll be more than glad to help.

I dont see anything wrong in Smokes Suggestions.. Knowing Sarat well, I am sure he takes it in the right sense... I wonder why Alexa and Scarlet feel that Smoke is attacking Sarat...

Some people here got problems with some others and they want to make them look bad…… its not gonna work!!

KSA took over the Group during a bad time when many members left ...so its not his fault...one more reason Summer is usually less active period… when all are on vacation or most of us don’t want to do outdoor activities in this weather...again not Sarat's fault)

I do appreciate Darude’s efforts to make QLSG this big...KSA was/is not active as Da in this forum...so many people dunno him..Personal rapport with members is very important for a manager..which KSA has to work on...

With all our support and suggestions KSA can very well manage the group...

After all its not easy to please everyone... people from different parts of the world …..with different likes and dislikes…..not anyone fault!!

Good suggestions Smokey…

Sarat you can do it buddy!!

Alexa, what u didnt like what i said? I never said anything to offend YOU so you dont have to talk to me this way. I can say a lot about you too but thats just going to stir things in a different direction so lets just end it here for now.

I for one didnt expect the two of you of all the other members to turn on me this way when my whole intentions were to help the group get back on track, the truth does hurt and good medicine is always bitter.

Atleast i can say i tried to do something rather than sit around and whine like old women.

And this is exactly WHY i have left the group. Try to point out what is necessary to keep things alive and it seems like i'm the one doing the whining. I've posted the problems and solution that I FEEL was necessary and i'm the one whining. Alexa and Scarlett both of you are blowing this way out of proportion, instead of seeing the good of the post you rather catch the bull by the tail. I really dont care what you two think about this "attack on KSA" lol well he certainly doesnt seem to think so.

Scarlett you clearly do not know the difference between whining and someone who is giving suggestions as the title of this thread is. Further more i dont see any part of YOU being part of the solution. I'm not here to read about stories about red hens and barking dogs. Instead of pointing fingers at me give in your two cents to the problem.

Alexa does it really matter WHERE the topic has been posted? Let it be here so we can get suggestions from everyone not only QLSG members. Tomorrow they may be part of QLSG too. I really dont know what QLGS members think of themselves. You are all not part of some VIP group for god's sake you were NOBODY and dont try to think of yourselves ABOVE the rest of the QL members by saying post this here and there. WTF?

there's a difference between being to the point and being rude...you missed the first part by a mile.

In no way did I "not follow" your point. However..its seemed that in your original post you were doing a lot of whining, a lot of suggesting for KSA, and not much real solving. KSA was taking on a position that NO ONE wanted, but everyone wanted to benefit from. Reminds me of the story of The Little Red Hen...if you aren't familiar with it..google it...and let me say that you aren't the Little Red Hen...

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the main difference between a dog and man.

Versi-whatever is one that is jealous that he can't join in...so loves watching when things aren't going smoothly in a group of which he can't be a member.

I'm a klutz on crutches so I put them in my closet. I actually took my hacksaw and cut my cast off since it was pressing on the break. I wrapped it well and now it is much better.

My only problem is babysitters and hubby jetsets alot otherwise I may be able to annoy even more people on QLSG! And no, a solution is not to get a maid....my job here is mother and housewife, managing fine and can't bring myself to outsource just yet.

Keep up the work KSA......I'll get to an event eventually :-D

Scarlett what part of "Solution: You as the manager WHEN you have TIME go out and search for other venues. It IS your responsibility to do so. As members it is ALSO OUR responsibility to suggest places we like and recommend it to YOU so you can arrange to make reservations etc if needed." you didn't follow? Oh yeah and if he doesnt have time AT ALL to do any of that then perhaps he should just give up the managers post. Dont bite off more than u can chew.

Moving on, asking him to find us good deals is NOT a big deal as KSA himself phoned me up after i posted this telling me he was thinking about the same thing, doesnt matter who finds the deals, but my point being an effort wasnt made by either HIM nor US to do that. The point is out there for you all to see now.

Anyways KSA if your reading this man its upto you, you wanted suggestions there they are, or you can take Scarlett's advice and Que sera sera either way i aint bothered after today as i'm out of the group.

I DO have an issue with some of your comments..the manager of the QLSG doesn't HAVE time to scout out new ideas of places to go...he has a JOB and life also. If members are bored with things that he's scheduled, then THEY can suggest something else. Goes back to the old saying..."if you aren't part of the solution, then you are a part of the problem".

Telling KSA to find "deals" so that the social group can go cheaper, again is asking quite a bit above and beyond the norm. Just taking over the group is really intimidating...why don't YOU go find the deals and then bring them to KSA? Helping in such a way would be an enormous load off his shoulders.

Now...don't go off on me and say that I don't do that either, because I WAS part of the leadership of the SG when Da was leader...and just being a partial leader of the group was too much for me and my schedule..especially when folks were whining but not offering to help with the situations.

KSA...keep up the good work...those that want to go, will go, regardless of their schedule, finances, ect...Those that choose not to...won't. Those that choose not to attend functions due to personality conflicts with others, won't attend. Don't take it personally and just move on.

as well to such a Big post.

I thought only ASH have such a strong stamina..

BTW....

Good points, I agreed with Smokey & KSA (Balanced ideas), everybody has something or other activity to do, depend on their availability, affordability and more important is Interest.

To accept which activity one like to get involve into.

Suggest to have a brief poll on QL with different activities you guy suggested and watch members response....

Hope this will clarify QLer's preference and choice.

Thanks Ashwin but just typical of the QL members, you take the effort to point out something and look how many people even bother to respond. I'm sick and tired of this ranting that goes on when in fact everyone just wants to be spoon fed. Khallas i thinks its time to QUIT QLSG too.

So far only Inland sea and Boat trip to the island (With a tour Operator) were planned which I am sure all cannot afford that was why the turnout was so less.

I am sure something other than through the tour operators can be planned which will bring down the price to more affordable level.
