Re: How to mask your forum name


Me too......and I keep abreast of "the other host who shall not be named" and it just keeps getting worse. SO I am simply getting giddy the longer I am here and the more of my OLD site buddies I see showing up here! emoticon

Re: How to mask your forum name


I'm glad more and more people are wising up concerning that other host. They've jerked so many people around and I wish they'd all file BBB complaints like I did.

It does make me giddy to see them go downhill and I look forward to seeing them go out of business someday, but only because they deserve it, and I know your reasoning is the same.

AMEN! And the sooner the better! emoticon
I can't believe that after their giant crash/hack/royal screwup...they still have not implemented a way to back up all the data......and they keep rolling out, "TOYS" and new site "gadgets"..without the coding working properly at all times.. emoticon I mean people who are being INVOLUNTARILY moved now are losing they're skins, data...etc and there is NO way to get it back! I just don't get it... emoticon emoticon

Two words: Incompetence and greed.

Not a good combination at all.

WHOA....you said it there! I had actual hopes when KickApps took over, but it looks as though they left most of the same group in charge....dumb idea if you ask me. emoticon

Re: How to mask your forum name


I didn't realize someone new had taken over, but just did a quick Google to see who you're talking about. I agree, it's a dumb idea to keep the same people there, especially since the former owners probably suckered them into paying a lot for it.

Usually a little snooping around in "support" is all it takes to see the complaints that get posted, but maybe the mods there deleted all the more critical ones and banned the complainers? Now I don't know whether to dislike the new owners or to feel sorry for them. Do you think they had any idea then, or have any idea now, of the problems that go on under that staff?

On a side note, is Charlz still there? I actually liked him, and he posted at Whoosh a couple of times. It's strange that he was the bug fixer but not the programmer, and it probably would have been less work for him to just program it himself than to have to fix all the bugs the programmer created.

Re: How to mask your forum name


The usual "workers" do daily delete and ban or hide posts that they consider "inflammatory"..... emoticon
And the new owners, are savvy business people....I think they bought it as an investment or as a platform for something ELSE they want to do! I seriously doubt that "snake oil salesman, Labatt" actually pulled one over on them! Just pulled it over on all the members!

And no, Charlz is no longer there.....several of the really good ones are gone! I used to have Charlz on my Xmas card list..he was really caring and decent! Glad he moved on, but I wish he was here....he'd fit right in! emoticon

Re: How to mask your forum name


I wonder what Charlz is up to these days. My guess is that he probably got fed up with the way they ran things and quit. Back when I first started animating stuff, I animated his horse avatar and gave it to him, and he replaced the old one with that one. Whenever something was screwing up at the board I ran, I'd PM him and he'd fix it right up if he could, or at least let me know pretty quickly if it was something that required a major coding fix. Of all the staff there, he was friendly and professional, and he's the only one on that staff that I knew I could count when it came to my board.

Another staffer seemed ok from the couple of PMs I exchanged with her (regarding the "hacker" e*bios), but I've read some things that tell me not to trust her. Yet another one I met after she was no longer on staff there ("Pam," who also posted at Talking X***) claimed to have had root access to the system while she was on staff, and I didn't trust her at all. It's pretty funny how both TX and the provider had been "hacked" so many times, considering my suspicions about Pam, and also considering how involved Steve got with the whole troll business that mostly affected the TX board. I actually saw a post of his once on that big Survivor board (I'm sure you know which one) where he said on an ongoing "Ask Steve ____" thread that he fantasized (I think that was the word) about trolling, which only added to my suspicions about him. Add that to my suspicions about Pam, and it's not surprising what happened in 2005.

I hope I was cryptic enough but not too cryptic to make sense, lol. At any rate, I wonder why supposedly savvy business people would keep a staff like that around. I wouldn't trust them enough to have a board on their system, so I sure as heck wouldn't trust them to have access to a website that might actually make me some money. Heck, I wouldn't even trust them to have access to my Imageshack account!

Re: How to mask your forum name


I'm with you about Charlz....he was so good to me. I knew nothing then ( I mean REALLY nothing, never been on the internet EVER...barely could type, had no idea how to set up or run a site...they were my first...amazing that I am still going, after cutting my teeth THERE!) But he'd come running every time something went wrong, or he'd just pop in and say.."just checking"....That don't happen! emoticon I did not know that you did Charlz's avatar..that is waaaay cool! emoticon

And I think I got the jest of the info. There was some incredible back stabbing SOB'S there....I had "what I thought" was a great "go between" when I started having problems (after Charlz left), she had a nice pinkish color... emoticon
But in the end, she was just watching her own ass......and I believe she actually was the one who banned me. emoticon
It's too bad you don't have any of old "Steve-o's" comments from that giant "sucky" board! They'd be loved by one board that simply exists to report E/Y crap!! Ever stopped by there, they are a real "Disaster" emoticon ???

Like I said......I don't think they actually care about THAT format type or those members or workers for that matter. I don't know what you'd call it, but I think they only "WANTED" it, the platform or space or whatever it is. emoticon
