I'm done with the dark side
« on: May 25, 2010, 05:41:12 PM »

I had enough of the Dock site problems.
At home or work I cannot get on there.
I tried everything suggested-lower my security to almost unsafe levels,cleaned out my cookies,did a defrag,disc cleanup,emptied my pics down onto disc.
Even did Internet Explorer to diagnose connection problems---nothing wrong found.
My local service provider said it is not their problem either.
I give up.
The owner of this particular site waited too long to change servers and the site needs an overhaul.
Plus I offered to be a moderator since he is almost never on there and the damn kids run rampant.
He said he would think about it.A year later he is still thinkin' about it
A case of too little too late,IMHO.
So,my BoaB updates will be done here and here only.
 
I can go for a shyite,read a Mopar Action cover to cover, and come back and it is still loading up.
So,I am gonna wipe, and wash my hands of my frustration,and flush it away.
I can download faster than that site can upload.

I'm on Firefox and it is still slow, even with the "New" upgrades.

I find the site too busy lately.  I 'm away from that site for a few days when I'm working and I come back to 3-400 posts....and then the lag time to load up each forum...and I just can't be bothered most of the time.

I'll keep going by and seeing if a topic catches my eye, but I won't spend much time there.

I was just going to keep Leaburn out of trouble.  LOL  He did fine on his own.
 
Everybody has been complaining over there but nothing seems to be getting done.  It has a ghost administrator.
 
Most of them have no idea who I am, one of the oldest members there.  You tell them something and they continue to guess.
 
There is a small handful there that know their schtuff.  Butch, Glen, Leaburn.  Oh well. . .   Just tell them if they had enough, the lights are on here.
 
Let's not trash them again please.  Stay constructive.  I'm guilty too.

I didn't see any trashing other than facts that did not put a favorable light on the subject, so it was simple good criticism in my book.

Agree, one comment was enough, didn't see a follow-up happening, but good call. History is history.

I stopped going there when it was taking longer to load than it took to read.

Funny, I have posted on that site just once since I left two years ago but I do peruse it every so often.  It's one of the few sites I can still bring up on my Office Computer.  Don't know why that is....
 
Even so, we don't need to know why you want to leave the site, just leave it and let it go at that.

Odd, I've have no prob whatever getting on quickly (maybe because I
have a Mac running  Firefox?) , though I don't go there much, what
like less than 30 post total? except to look at cars and parts For
Sale, or post a Wanted ad (never had a response from one).  It's
better here, except more For Sale stuff there.
