Forums : Virginia Chapter : deleting my account (Go to chapter) (1718 Views)
September 21, 2012Bye.
September 21, 2012why?
September 22, 2012Why? Seriously?
I`m still hanging on, but it`s hard.
The VA Chapter was one of the most active, and there have been less than 30 posts in 6 months. The laissez faire attitude of the ownership in addressing the site`s many problems over the last few years, and the subsequent crashes drove many enthusiasts to other sites...it is what it is.
I see more posts on the "other" site in 5 minutes compared to activity here, and it`s because former members experienced 2 big failures. If a site takes a few more seconds to load or hiccups/lags, then people are going elsewhere because there are too many more reliable options. Failure to address the issues, not once but twice, was the last straw for even our Chapter Pres.
September 23, 2012No I understand why you would hang elsewhere and not post here but why delete your account? It may pick up again someday.
September 23, 2012the admins dont even keep the site up (scottys f150 has been truck of the month for almost a year)and server failure shows up every where.
If you want people to use the site,CLEAN IT UP AND KEEP IT UP TO DATE!
September 30, 2012ok it will not let me delete my account anyways. its just not the same as it used to be on here like (02TonHog) said it used to be one of the most active sites!! also i dont even have a Ford truck anymore. atleast for the time being???
September 30, 2012I still check in from time to time just to see if anyone`s returned, but it`s really just the same few guys hanging on. I point blank asked if people would be willing to come back to the site, and the resounding answer was no.
Remember when *is* coming up because of a craptastic response to a crash? Remember the galleries failing? Remember the first crash, and how those many issues weren`t addressed leading to an epic crash? People went elsewhere because it took WEEKS for the site to come back up the first time. When they returned, the errors persisted, and mods kept apologizing for ownership that showed absolutely zero sense of urgency in even the most basic site maintenance.
I`m tired of apologists covering for ownership, because if anyone with the power to do something actually cared enough to do it, the site would be busy. Instead we get half-arsed service, and despite the epically low traffic I still get errors when I access anything other than my direct link to the VA Chapter.
Putting it politely, the ownership let the site die and have done absolutely nothing to bring the site back.
September 30, 2012Just to let you know, it took 5 TIMES to get my last post through. THAT`s why people aren`t going to come back, even if they don`t delete their accounts.
October 14, 2012I came back to see what was going on and by the time the home page loaded I was able to drink 3 beers and needed them by the time I was done.. then logging in took the rest of that 6 pack this site has become a memory hogging add mess no wonder it is still dead
October 21, 2012if the admins dont care, then why should the last of us should is beyond me. if they maybe updated a lil instead of say scooties truck every day. might be a little better, or hell a news feed on the main pages that changes FREQUENTLY
