Topic tags/keywords: pictures missing

When I read about so many project pictures disappearing . I subjected looking at woodworking web.com. I don’t think the powers that be liked that because my remarks were deleted. This sight has really taken a turn and not for the better. This used to be the best woodworking site I fear those days are over.

No it took a turn for the better. Martin allowed the site to be overrun by trolls and spammers and he will eventually do the same to the other one when he gets bored with it.

Something else happened. Cricket would not have deleted a statement about another site. Perhaps what you thought you posted somehow didn’t get posted. I’ve often had that happen.

Agree, Bill, those of us that have been here for quite a while can see the difference. It ain’t what it used to be.

It got posted I recall it. Honestly wouldn’t be too worried about it as well it is only a website, life goes on.

Trolls still exist they always do on sites. I like this site better simply because of the layout much more active, and find some interesting posts and builds. The site you mention drives me nuts with the layout (huge font, generous spacing between topic posts, etc..) and seams to be very slow moving. I didn’t see anyway to change it when I joined there some time ago.

Websites are a business. If you owned a business, you wouldn’t allow a competitor to solicit customers in your lobby.

Never heard of the other sight but I like this one, the work shown here is outstanding and the people are wonderful. The lay out here I like as well.

Mine too.
I’m a member of a few woodworking sites,two in particular stand out by far,CWW and this one( LJ) ,the reason for my liking both sites is their friendly , down to earth members,both are businesses, neither site is perfect but who’s looking for perfection here,if there’s a problem with LJ, let’s bring it up .

I just said what I said to see if you would delete my statement as others have said you would. The conversation was about pictures missing and project pictures not opening. One of the people stated when they complained they got their messages deleted. So I thought I would put it to the test. Sure enough you deleted my comments. I’ve been on this web sight long before there was a cricket on this sight. This is not the friendly sight it use to be.

I am sorry some are so upset….I happen to really like LJ and the way it is run.

Cricket does a great job trying to balance letting people have their say and moderating when needed. She is honest and open about most things and tries to provide explanations.

In my opinion, it’s much more friendly than before. It was very hostile when Martin had it.

When I first joined LJ it was like no one moderated it and people could do whatever they wanted without following the rules. If thats the friendly site you are referring to then I don’t want it back. The only negative thing I see here are some of the negative people. I try to ignore them and only interact with the good ones.
