Ok the following few paragraphs are things a lot of people have been thinking, some openly saying, and I have really just grouped it together and written my own thing in a block of text, that I hope will be seen as something constructive, communicative and hopefully not picked apart by the "forever offended" crew.
This site is in dire straits. This is really a wake up call now.
I don't want this turning into a brawling match- and if it is turned into that then Staff please close and lock this thread. I have been blunt. Some may think me a little too harsh in places, but please understand I say this only because I care. If I didnt, I really wouldnt have bothered writing this. At all. Now you can all read this, and I invite you to add your two cents as constructive communication on the subjects raised within this post, but it will NOT be helpful for the members to turn against one another for their opinions.
This is MY post though, and it is written from the heart, even though it is a little rant-y. Please remember that you are allowed to disagree with myself or other peoples views but personal attacking is unnecessary.-opinions are like arseholes. and even I have one. Love me or hate me for what I say but regardless. Thank you.
So here goes...I am going to name and shame now.
Hydro (also uses multiples of names) as does Eddie and then there is Alejo.
This lot are among the top names of people ruining VC. Like the other rooms, decent people will just have enough and leave. Theyll be run out by this sort of gutless behaviour as we have witnessed by Alejo and Eddie the UNGRATEful prick and their little teenage following.
Between them virus plants that they've been uploading, the spam, the unwanted files, unwanted screens popping up of things youd rather not see, and the boring repetitive crap that is being allowed to pass on the site, where others are removed for very much less, they are ruining what used to be a fairly good site.Now it is just a rapidly sinking ship, and that is quite sad.
But hey, there are still places on the internet that are pretty decent to go when this one fails. And I think if things aren't sorted one way or another, this site is going to lose many of its chatters- at least a decent amount of the old regs, the sort of chatters who aren't just here to knock one out to the few remaining women ( I mean the ones who aren't cam wh*res), who are still sadly regarded as pieces of meat for the plucking by the pervert gang on the site. All that will be left will be what you find on the other "adult chat" sites, chat roulette, and wankers anonymous type of sites out there. Yeah those cheap tacky dingey sites, that nobody wants to be associated with because of the open paedophilia and other dark **** they do. Does chat ave really want to become like that? Sure numbers are all fair and well but they are meaningless when it comes to reputation of a site. if a site is filled with idiots who are being allowed to openly solicit and where there are paedophiles who in broad light of day seem to think its ok for them to "do their thing" because they KNOW the rules here arent enforced. (At least, not the ones that actually MATTER -like keeping members SAFE) and if - no WHEN people ARE being allowed to get away with blue bloody murder by way of annoyances like.spamming and hacking and bringing the site down left right and centre, then there won't be much of a site for even those shady members to come to eventually, and those who leave will just find other places to chat, where the rules ARE enforced as they say on the site, exactly as they say, and where there are regularly moderated rooms, with a decent welcoming and fun chat environment for people to enjoy.
Forgive me, but I wasnt going to rant but enough is enough now. I have screenshots of conversations by your own staff members (including some former staff members now) who clearly state that they were instructed to leave the named idiots above, alone to run riot and free, because they fear repercussions of action from those idiots...so basically the staff are just ruinning scared, and they KNOW it and are now behaving as if they run the place, own the place whilst the staff just sit idle while things take place, muting and booting other people for much much less, - it is disgraceful. What the hell is the point in having STAFF who dont do STAFF stuff?! None. Sweet fanny adams is what the point is. Jesus Holy Mary. The lack of 'shyte -giving' which is taking place in what WAS a pretty decent room takes the absolute PISS. Many of these childish immature idiots who are now INFECTING VC come from teen chat and college chat and have come from another ****ty chat site now redundant, so here they come with their drama, their bullcrap and their whining, self entitled bitchery. They killed off those rooms and now theyre trying to do it to VC too. I guess that's ok though.
I mean it seems that it not like CM cares anymore about his own site. I actually wonder if he hasnt abandoned this place altogether because of how it is now. Many members have yet to receive responses from him, and as the owner of this site he is responsible to his members, free site or not. He is answerable to some degree- even if he had send a "yes message received, we are dealing with this issue" but to blatantly ignore the members is just disrespectful and a disregard for their wellbeing. Money talks though im sure.
CM I invite you to a discussion off this thread regarding the goings on - I have plenty of screenshots. And if you want this place staffed properly, I am sure happy to direct you in how to do a Military shake up of this place. Staff should be a team. supporting one another, not the backstabbery and dramatic drivel that has occurred lately. Staff arent police but they ARE there to ensure good running of their site, to be a representing face of the site they work for, and should be able to understand the rules, the application of them blah blah blah. I don't think you are a man who is ignorant in this respect, but I do however think you are incredibly foolish if you are going to allow serious breaches of security to your site go unchecked and not pay attention to what your members are communicating to you. It seems to me that communication (or lackthereof) is much of the issue here.
Meh I could likely rant about all this for far longer than I owe to it. Its really not up to me what you do, who you hire as staff, or how you want to run the site. It is such a shame that CA may well be redundant sooner than you think. I am sure that other site owners of redundant sites sat idle by thinking "yeah yeah, we are safe, our site will outlast all the others" - security is important. But so are the members.
After all it is the members who MAKE the place.
I've said all I can be arsed with. I am tired of saying it. Its your damned site, its really up to you when all is said and done, but I know if it were me id rather have QUALITY of members than QUANTITY, But hey. get your number quota any which way you can. In the end that will mean nothing.
I implore you to take actions appropriate that restrict these characters from their illegal and often intrusive activity.
Just one of many many threads lately regarding the problems I have re- re- re- re- raised.... https://forum.chat-avenue.com/showth...Webcam-Hacking
Thanks for hearing this.
ETA- if I have posted this in a wrong place I apologise. Please move it to the appropriate place.
