Even though the original posting is a hoax, that is still a secretarial signature.

If I were the real Walt, I'd be more angry that someone was stating I thought Van Dyke was real as opposed to using a fake account with my name.

Walt,

Congrats on your success, but I have to say that your posts on this site in general give me the impression that you have some issues to deal with. I get the impression that you like to argue with people just to pass your time and the moment you feel you are losing control of the argument, you turn to bullying and tantrums.

And by the way, when you tell people that you aren't going to tolerate their opinions on the authenticity of your success, you are only inviting people to do so. And if you do not want people's opinions, than why post it at all?

Walt you need a chill pill buddy... Maybe even a daily dose

Yippee, another poster taking me up on my signature! Thanks so much for posting!

:lol:

We've PM'ed. You know me.

Honestly, I don't care too much at all about this fool. Join dates are public, post numbers are public, my signature is very clear--if any morons take this guy for me, they have issues in the head.

Not to mention that it's completely anonymous. They aren't actually besmirching me, as nobody knows who I actually am... There's no point caring about something so utterly meaningless. So I don't.

Well that explains some of the issues.

I have to wonder, did somebody abuse said permissions, unless Admin was having an extremely bad day?

I don't know why it would have been so great and then all of a sudden, not so great.


The mod & admin forums are quite enlightening in this regard.

Those forums used to be completely hidden & closed off to the general public. If you weren't of a level where you could access them, you couldn't even see them. If you somehow got hold of a direct link to them or a post within, you'd see a message that said "You don't have the necessary permissions to perform this action". But after one of many forum crashes, that changed & admin never changed it back.

admin wasn't happy with the way they undermined him or constantly used IP bans due to the ease of idiots like this (or worse) creating new accounts.

This site has no captcha & no email verification. There's also, as stated before, no rule against multiple accounts, despite there being almost no good reason for them.

The mods warned admin that the site would implode in upon itself & admin literally laughed it off.

TheCollector (the other administrator, who left under the same circumstances as the mods) put it best in a farewell post:


Subject: Thanks guys - but I have done all I can do.

TheCollector wrote:
I, like many of you have my own career (or schooling), and I get on here as and when I can. I have raised your comments and concerns to Admin now more times than I can explain, and for the most part I have been overruled. I just don't get understood - like I am speaking a different language - or at least that is how it appears at present.


ETA: To even add to this, which even goes more toward answering your question about how things got so bad so fast, once the mods with power were gone, admin quit certain basic upkeep aspects.

Feedback used to have a "No Bumping after 3 months of the OP rule" (to coincide with the AllPosters giveaway "FB most be received within 3 months" rule)--that way, people didn't have to worry about looking at post dates. In keeping with that rule, FB threads were locked after 3 months. The Mod Toolbar even had the power to sort threads per forum by OP date & lock them en masse. Now, not only is that not done, but it's not even rare to see a thread resurrected after 1-2 years, let alone 3 months.

Request a Celebrity Address used to have a "3 per day limit" & a "We aren't doing your work for you, so the requested address better not be in the database" rule. If you violated either, your post was either locked or deleted with the only response being "3 requests per day only" or "Check the database". That admin spoonfeeds everyone & the posters can't even be bothered finding their own addresses, despite being the ones looking to write, is probably my biggest annoyance here. There's a poster who made multiple threads about what Gene Wilder's CT address is & whether he responds from it, despite both being widely answered all over if they even tried to put in a little work. And, for some reason, nobody else seems to see this as a problem.

Spam reports are also widely ignored now (there are some in the IP forum that I reported over a year ago that are still there), and admin has a habit now of moving a lot of it to General Discussion. Although, to be honest, that's not a new habit of his--it's just that there are no mods to clean up after him anymore.

So, to answer your question the easiest way possible, admin got worse at the job to a certain extent over the years, but, the biggest change between then & now (and the reason things went downhill so fast) is that before, there were teams of people cleaning up after him. Like Ian (TheCollector) said in his farewell post, he purposely stopped cleaning up after admin for a bit to try to show him how bad things could be. Now that Ian is gone for good, just like everyone else, the site falls to admin & admin alone--but, make no mistake, that was his choice.

Well, that is a shame, but I still think this place could rise from the ashes and become better maintained once again, there's not really a reason why everyone can't start over and make it a better place and so I'm still hopeful, even if its empty hope.

Admin, why not share the strain and let somebody else help around here, members might begin to stick around more often.

One thing for sure is we don't want this Walt guy as a mod. Lol. with his ignorant rude attitude to people on here. He just seems to want to argue and pick fault constantly with people's posts. He is obvious very bitter and bored with his life which is a shame.

The problem now is that the respectable members are almost all gone, replaced by super mature people like the lovely person who posted above who believe that off topic ad hominems make for appropriate conversation.

Is it possible that the site could rise from the ashes? Yes.

Will it? No.

The site is too much for work for one person, but admin decided that's how he wants it to be. As such, it's been overrun by trolls, spammers, and people who are too immature to know the difference between "authentic" & "fake, "intended" & "perceived", and "curt" & "rude".

With that, its view in the mainstream collecting community has plummeted, thus driving away potential good members and attracting more of the above. It's a vicious cycle, & one that I don't see breaking anytime soon--even with new management.


At this point, the site is what it is & you have to take it as such. If you keep trying to make it better, it won't be long before you're as beloved as I am. :lol:

ETA:

PS If you actually look at all my posts, you'll see that, while curt, I actually help those who made an effort to help themselves prior to asking their question.

The problem is that most of the questions asked here have already been answered a million times & the answers are easy to locate. The other problem is that people choose, for whatever reason (maturity?), to read an attitude into my posts that isn't there.

What is even going on now Dicks? :D
He got a reply from him, whether it is authentic or fake is here nor there - he is happy. If you want to squabble, there is a nursery round the corner from me, why don't you try it out? ;-)

No, he didn't.

But your inability to comprehend what's going on or follow the conversation does prove my point, so thanks for that!

No I ain't followed the entire conversation, I have got better things to do with my time - such as doing interesting stuff than arguing with other idiots on forums - he is happy, why can't you leave him to it and stop being petty :shock: ?

And, I do not care as I have never heard of you and by the sounds of it, don't want to {up}

The thing is, Thomas, the original poster is a troll account so in this instance the original Walt is in the right and the original poster only posted to provoke an argument on authenticity knowing full well it would.

Whilst I understand you may have better things to do, it wouldn't take more than 60 seconds to read in to the situation caused by the fake Walt.

Personally I think lots of older members rejoin knowing nothing will be done and knowing exactly what to say to get under peoples skin.

You seem reasonable, so I'll tell you that, if that is what you think with regard to me, then you haven't actually read through my posts.

I will also tell you the one thing that admin has always banned for, even back in the day (it's how we got our first disgruntled mods), was speaking against admin. Again, you can find the proof in the mod forum.

So if that was why I was here, I wouldn't have said the things I did say to you. Or, again, posted any helpful information at all.

Fromuk2014. I don't think you have read many of walts posts have you? You obviously have no idea what your talking about here.
Like Walt says....
You need to check his posts on his profile page mate and you will see how his mind REALLY works. {up}

Good luck mate.

The skin comment was not aimed at Walt, mainly at spammers, trolls, the likes of whoever created this thread, does that make better sense now?

I'm completely aware that Walt is stern but fair, most of the time - and not a troll.

I can see how that could have been taken to look as though I had not read your responses but I think it was misunderstood.

Woah, woah, woah...

We don't know if they were referring to me or people like "new Walt". It's why I added the qualifier "with regard to me". It's quite possible that they're instead referring to the people on this board who only cause trouble, like the "similar account" people or "Zen", knowing they can get away with it.

If they are referring to me, well, I said my piece twice on that.

I appreciate your (what I'm going to assume is) defense, but let's not jump down someone's throat over a vague comment that could've been made about a number of people, possibly including or excluding me.

ETA: See, all just a misunderstanding.
