I think it's time to cop on!
« on: January 10, 2008, 06:19:00 AM »
Things are starting to be a bit of a joke at this stage..

I think it's time for the owner of the site to review how the site it going. To me it's going down hill.

I am sick and tired of reading stupid comments and stupid quotes in members signatures!!

It's really childish the carry on here!

It looks like a classic case of too many moderators, all trying to better themselves with silly comments about banned users!

Jayus just forget about it and move on.

I am seriously re thinking about my membership to this website, as I think now it's hard to take it seriously what with the silly comments appearing in EVERY single post! I don't have the time or interest in reading this rubbish about banned members.

Get a grip!

Carlsberg don\'t run I.T departments, but if they did, they\'d probably be more fun.

Thanks for your valid points. I've locked the related topics. Any such issues should be conducted out of the public view. It doesn't add anything to the community as you have pointed out. We are working to make improvements both on content and on the forums, hang in there.

So how come we have to read silly comments about banned users etc...

Surely this should be conducted else where and not in public view!
Content on this website is fine, it just lacks manners.

You have done a good job on the site and it seems to getting more popular.

The site is a good resource and it would be a shame to see it turn  in to a slagging match.

Thanks for taking my views on board.

Well I think the site is getting better. More members, frequent posters and a lot of very useful information has been posted on here. Ok there has been a lot of silly things lately due to a banned user but you'll get that on any forum.
If you make everything too strict then no-one will want to join. Thats why we have the Lounge Bar forum for laid back talk whereas if you like to talk seriously about scanning then there is a whole pile of other sub-forums for it where people do take things seriously.
Thats just my view and I'm not trying to argue with anyone and and I do think VHFer has some valid points but saying the site is going down hill is not a fair statement as it has never been better than it is now.

Computer goes on. Computer goes off. With it so the names on the computer and forums. That's all they are. Names on a computer screen. How serious you wish to take some words maybe said about you is up to each individual. But they are just words. Be it good or bad words. Words that mean nothing come the end of my day. I switch my computer off and I leave everything online behind me. I don't take it all offline and let it drive me crazy. I am crazy enough already. ( LOL ) Sadly some folk take the net offline with them. Because the net is more their life than anything they have offline. That's what happens with too much time spent online. Online becomes your life. You live in cyber space.

As for this forum? Think it is better than ever. Going great. Good moderation. Something we know that is needed. And a new fan club too. Any kind of publicity is good publicity.

No don't worry about it. If people do not like signatures then they can turn the off in the UCP.
