Hey folks Paul Stokes here.
I have decided to leave the KoB and AoB.
It took a long long while for me to come to this conclusion.
The truth is that I have been thinking about this for some time. This last debacle with Robert Steven’s pots was the straw that broke the horses back so to speak. I am so angry about this situation as I am sure many of you are too.
Since I was, for all intensive purposes, the owner of the KoB, I have moved all content from that site to this one, including anything that I wrote for the AoB. The KoB will be shut down soon enough. If you have articles published on other sites or magazines I would love for you to submit them to me for publication here.
I need to some how restore your faith in me, after what has happened. I pledge to make ofbonsai.org everything that the KoB and AoB could have been. But I need your help! I need a steady stream of articles and galleries to make it work.
At this time I have also decided to not have a forum. I want to focus more on being a valuable resource for bonsai enthusiasts that a venue for attacking one another. I have however included a chat area, seen at the bottom right hand side of the screen.
I am in need of a good editor to help with the [hopefully] huge influx of bonsai articles to come in the near future. I need a few bonsai reporters as well, people how can cover bonsai events around the world and write reviews.
