Yea I noticed that last week when I first logged on. I clicked on a story and it wanted me to sign in for a 5 stories a month. seriously, 5 stories a month? 5 breaking stories can happen in a matter of hours. That to me seems like a huge disservice, much less slap in the face, to the loyal fans and members that have supported the site for years. Now I’m seeing last updates 12 hrs or more on threads. That should be a sign to the higher ups that something is wrong.
The powers that be should take into account, what’s left of, the long standing members ideas and criticism to better this forum in order to get it maybe back where it used to be. That’s doubtful, but with a good overhaul along with reinventing itself, it could happen. I found another forum site that a lot of members went to. It’s very well put together and the camaraderie seems to be what this place used to be. Not sure if I can post the Chatter of the Gators over there. I’m gathering from there that there was a mass exodus a few yrs ago when something happened here between some mods and the owners of the site or the reporters. Since it’s been so long, it’s a little hard to piece together everything.
I’m sure anything I’ve posted will fall on deaf ears with absolutely nothing being done to correct the ship. It may piss some people off and I may get banned for speaking my mind. I may not be the smartest bulb in the box, but if I can notice the issues I think anyone can.
Hopefully we pull something out of our @$$.
