Please don't. I for one value your contributions and think that a rift between 
Promo and yourself would be bad for both parties.

This is not the case. The only thing is that  we don't do off-the-cuff social 
posts any more. Is there a small group of people who has access to the social 
media accounts? Yes. And not everybody even in promo has access to the social 
media account? That is correct.

But that is because it is not necessary: when somebody wants to post 
something, we discuss the wording (for a very short while -- it doesn't drag 
on anything) in the promo channels, find an image, and then publish. It is 
never the work of one single person.

You're subscribed to the Promo channels. You must've seen this in action. This 
is the same for everybody, whether they have direct access to the accounts or 

We work like this with Kdenlive, Krita, Akademy organisers, and so on and it 
works well. We are getting consistently more traction on posts since we 
stopped improvising.

I hope the above convinces you to carry on being part of promo
