Just to answer this point, the thread was locked with the consensus of the mods and admins. We were on agreement on this.

Also, I take no offense by what you are saying DocBrown. I also want this forum and CBCS to succeed.

My second point was directed at MetalPsi who made a comment on this thread NOT the CGC vs CBCS thread. Normally, I send people a pm. This was a special case. My reasons for doing this are not open for public discussion.

I did not say to start a new CGC vs CBCS thread. My idea was for someone to narrow the topic - like "qualified" labels or the structure of the grading scale, etc.

I hope this helps to clarify some issues.

I think what is perplexing us is that all of the so called "heated" stuff took place yesterday, nothing really crossed any lines, and the whole thing ended with valuable information learned. Today the thread gets locked straight outta nowhere like a Randy Orton RKO and nothing exciting even took place today. Had the thread been locked yesterday no one would have batted an eye, locking it today has everyone scratching their heads.

Then I say this to the mods and admins: if you want CBCS to be considered a professional, top-tier grading company...and it IS...with a professional, top-tier message board, instead of a, to quote, "CBCS fanboy" board, where all anyone does is post "CBCS rules, everyone else drools!" endlessly, you won't do these things going forward.

To use the example, CGC has suffered TREMENDOUSLY, in ways they're not even aware of, by allowing the atmosphere of their message boards to be what it is and has been. They haven't listened to their customers...which is why CBCS exists.

CBCS HAS to succeed. The graded comics industry NEEDS you to succeed. And one significant way you can do that is by elevating the discourse, and not making the same bad decisions that CGC has made for 15 years.

I believe in CBCS. I believe in its mission, and I believe in its validity in the marketplace. I hope CBCS believes that just as strongly.

Well said. I hope the intent of this message is thoughtfully considered, especially the point about the CBCS fanboyism which is rampant on these boards

Second off, calling people out to the hockey rink will result in a suspension whether it is said in confusion or not.

And finally, we strive to create a friendly atmosphere where people are free to discuss CGC or CBCS and are welcome to post pictures of either companies slabs. That does not mean we will tolerate CGC fanboys who have nothing constructive to say here. Also, I'd like for you to TRY to mention CBCS or post a CBCS slab across the street and see what happens.

Play nice or take your ball and go home.

Peace


I'm just a lurker here, but this seems unprofessional and rude, IMHO.

This seems more on the level, though.

"We CAN and will lock threads"

We know that mods/admins can. Him saying it that way is very aggressive, some might consider it hostile. Same with his last line. Both of those points could have been made using far less hostile language & syntax.

And calling anyone who might disagree with him a "CGC fanboy" is very unprofessional.

Last, what is said & done on the other side of the street really isn't applicable here.

I hope this answers your question.

@slym2none You've made some valid points and I'd like to respond.

First off, my locking threads comment was a direct response to a post by Doc Brown.

I did not call anyone who disagrees with me a CGC fanboy.

There are people who visit here whose sole purpose is to disrupt the forum and cause drama. These people will point out the virtues of CGC and bash CBCS every chance they get. This statement was not directed at any one person.

And what you said about across the street is absolutely true. Yet hardly a day goes by that some sort of drama that got started there doesn't overflow to here.

If you meant my comment about their extreme censorship, I was just pointing out an obvious difference in the forums after this forum was accused of being even worse then CGC.

So, I hope this helps to clarify where I was coming from. In the future, I will make sure to quote people in my direct responses.

I'm assuming you're getting emails from other sources. I would do as Darthlego suggested and then reboot your device or computer. If that doesn't work I'd contact a moderator.

@martymann - one other thing to check is the email alerts settings in your account. You should be able to just click on your own name to view it. If that and all of the above advice still doesn't work, let me know and we'll have to get someone at CBCS to look into it.
