I don't have a problem with Openledger/CCEDK being listed as Partners, I believe Ronny is an example of what a partner in the Bitshares ecosystem is. We just have to have a clear definition of what that means. Does issuing a press release with the word partner in it make you a partner? What does it mean to be a partner to a decentralized company/organization mean in the first place. Using the term partner could make us unique in that sense.Below is a list of the forums of other some of the other top coins, none list a partners.

Everyone can claim to be a partner of BitShares no one can stop you from saying so.

However we did not remove the partner status of anyone because such a status just does not exist, yet.
If you want to become an approved BitShares partner do a representative stakeholder voting.
But if you just want a prominent place on the forum, then you have to deal with the forum users.
And they decided for now to have a clean forum without a misleading Partner section (including mostly inactive threads).
Else everyone could claim to be a partner that deserves a prominent spot on the forum too.

The decision was not made to make "Partners" cry or to blame anyone but just for a better and cleaner forum.
