I know how you feel Greg.

Walter actually paid for advertising, quite a while ago, so I emailed and Pmd Jeff starting July 9, after the Frasier Valley Show was over, to see if Walter could get the Red Deer show banner that he paid to have made put up on the front page. I never heard back from Jeff, but see that the last PCPC show's advertising got put up there - so I guess someone is getting some emails from Eastern Canada atleast.

Ryan, you can clearly see that Jeff posted the ad for the Port Credit Show two months before you started PMing Jeff.. Infact, he even got the date wrong and never did fix it.. LOL

This still however is no excuse for what is going on and I hope no one thinks I am making one for all of this.. I just wanted to clarify that. Going by what you posted, it almost seemed as though you were saying there's some sort of favortism shown towards PCPC or something..

Can you please look into this. It is one thing to say sorry and say there is something wrong. The better way to do it is to look into it and say things are going to change. I hope something can be done to bring this site back to the way it was. I am sure Jeff is busy and he now seems to be away lots and I am sure this is not the case, but it almost seems like he has given up on the site.

Greg

I am not sure how much more in can be looked in to.. It's almost as though people think we have some secret code word we use to get a hold of Jeff.. Just as you guys have not spoken with him, neither have we.. This thread has been brought up a couple times now and I have personally tried to contact Jeff to show him the thread or have him take a look at it, and have not heard from him.. Yes, he is very busy now and he's constantly away, but like you said, I doubt he has given up on the site.. I really dont know what else I can say..

Actually Matt, the Fraser Valley one was up on the main page for quite a while, and still was when I emailed Jeff the first time about the Red Deer show's add that Walter has paid for. Then, the pcpc one went up - but I had thought it was for the September 12 show, I see that it says June 13 now. Still, someone must have taken the Fraser Valley one down.

I thought it was bad to not be able to give money to a site and have your advertising put up. It is even worse for someone to pay for something and not have anything to show for it. This is poor business. If he is not going to fulfill his obligations as the site owner, or not pass on his duties to someone below him. Someone has definitely dropped the ball and I think until this is fixed, someone else should be given the power to take over his duties, or the advertising page should be taken down.

Just my opinion.

Sure could have fooled me. You may be doing your best Matt but seems like the main man has neglected a few important things. I sure hope the TARAS show gets a banner up before it's time. It's tough to not make it look like favoritism Matt. Not any fault of yours but just the situation does look bad. Been watching Greg's posts for a while now. Tis sad.

I understand what you're saying Vanan, and I won't for a minute say it doesn't look bad.. The MOD's are given limited amounts of 'power' for lack of a better term.. If there was anything I could personally do to get the banner up, I would without a doubt do it.. Unfortunatly, there's nothing I can do..

Rumour has it that the site has been sold. The new owner doesn't want to take over any contract obligations so at the end of the year, when everything expires, the new owners will take over and not have to honour any contracts. Then they can change and/or close down the site. If you think about it it kind of makes sense why Jeff isn't talking to anyone and isn't answering his emails/phone (even though he's NOT away).

Normally I'd call Jeff to see what's up.........but what's the point......he's not answering anyone and we don't get along anyways.

Is this true? It would make sense the way I see it, but I will be pretty pissed off if I payed for a year photohosting account and it is cancelled at the end of the year. I did not pay at the end of the year. I paid half way through the year. Also if Walter has paid for his banner to be put up then put up his damn banner or refund his money. It is one thing to not take money and not put up advertising, but it is a totally different ballgame when someone pays and does not get what he paid for. Obviously nothing is getting done for the TARAS show advertising (Big thanks for all the help on that goes out to Jeff and/or any anyone else who dropped the ball), but you better do something about the people who have given you money for something they haven't gotten.

This is a trend I've been noticing for a while. The popularity of this site is dwindling, and the amount of traffic (or at least the number of posts) it gets these days is nothing compared to what it used to be. Yeah yeah I'm not a ssnakess supporter so shouldn't talk, but it's true.

This site is dieing, and it is a crying shame for Canadian herpers.

The site is not sold. We were told those links were there because they were paying half the server fee and there were links to this site on their site.
Cheers,

Well, this could all be cleared up within minutes if Jeff would just post and tell us what's going on.

I was going to buy a banner ad soon but not if this is how money is handled around here.
