Cartrix;
As you know, I am a pretty reasonable guy.
When the boards started going weird with the word filter a few months ago, I pm'd you. You responded and let everyone know that UBI was working on it and to report the specifics to you.
Fine we did that, but the board never seems to work right for long.

Yesterday the board was telling me that all of my html script was unuseable, this a.m. it worked fine, now it is unuseable again.

Yet some members of the forum with identical html to mine works just fine.

Therefore, can we please have some honesty and regular communications about what is going on?

I have no personal beef against you Cartrix and you and I have gotten along well in the past.

However, your communications strategy is weak. It is reasonable to expect the community manager to be timely and accurate in distributing information when it is needed.
It OBVIOUSLY has been needed lately with the boards being broken and unreliable, yet the information we have received has been ladled out with an eyedropper. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I like this board and its' community is very helpful; that indirectly reflects well on UBI.
However, the constant technical problems DIRECTLY reflect badly on UBI and make me question my loyalty as a customer to them.

Please do your duty and inform us with useful information in a timely manner.

Thank you
TC /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Besides that, the forums running SLOW again as in its worst days.

Twenty minutes to read 3 posts!


I wonder if that are "the improvements we all will notice in the following weeks", which you talked about some weeks ago?

Thanks for the info, Hunter. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Whomever is delegated Cartrix responsabilities while he is away, obviously needs to respond then.

Any idea who that is?

No, I disagree; it seems to be having a good influence, if anything./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Things seem to be getting better.

No answer is forthcoming and I am absolutely shocked at that! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif -Sarcasm!

Therefore, big fat bump.

Cartrix or delegate, could we have some information for a change, please?

Scripts not working....again.

I also can't post from home without getting either a "discussion doesn't exist" or "you've been banned from posting on the forum" message.....again.

I'm beginning to doubt in the competancy of UBI to fix anything.

Inappropriate word warning is haunting me constantly. I'm using other peoples scripts that do work, and when I modify them and use them, the don't work. WHY? Cartix please get on it whenever you get back!!

looks like scripts are getting banned across the ubi boards. A person can take control of your browser through the scripts and it has become a security risk. The boards being run by Volkon they have been banned. I imagine when Cartrix gets back the boards he runs they may get banned as well

Well written request TC. I just hope that someone, anyone at UBI responds promptly, with the same level of class that you always seem to show in your post. Good job.

I would like to know what`s going on here too.

Even if it would be something like that:"We configured the filter so you spammers won`t be playing with your scripts".

Ok,but TELL ME WTF IS GOING ON.

Thanks for your kind words, UCLANUPE.
I try to be a reasonable guy but this situation is simply unacceptable.

ZERO information, ZERO communication.

Pathetic. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
