Bob,

That was some rant! laugh.gif but it does hit alot of good points!

This site has just grown faster than we are used too.

Many areas are not as active as before like chat, the galleries and the blogs.

We haven't seen a trade a thon or an email blast in a long time. Some things/information are so outdated, but the site continues to grow so we're OK in a sense.

Sure improvements can be made, but there aren't enough hours to do them ohmy.gif

I think there should be an effort to discuss which improvements (at least a few?) are the most worthwhile and would help TCC the greatest. It isn't right to assume that every suggestion can feasibly be implemented, but some should be considered.

The chat room is available any time. We have considered moving the chat to Sunday night though.

Another point:

This place has too much of a negative attitude lately. I thought the political forum was home to most of the bad attitudes, but I guess not. Nothing wrong with expressing an opinion but why does everyone have to be so rude lately? You can get your point across much easier if you try to act civilized without insults, name-calling, etc.

Here, here...I agree with Cody. We all are allowed to have your opinions and it will not always be the same as others. Respectfully agree to dis-agree, not reason to be rude or nasty.

That might be folks from other sites that aren't as family friendly and think it's cool to do so on this site. If something is blatant, by all means report it

No - it is usually from members who have been here a long time.

It's nothing "reportable", just overall negative/rude attitude.

I too have noticed that it's not as good as it used to be. I go to the sale sight and all I see is Box Breaks. There should be a different Spot for them. And people are just rude and short with you. Maybe It's me but people seem like they do not want to trade. And some people just have no idea what they are doing. The other thing I have noticed is people not getting back to you on things even the Mods. I hope things get better but I have went to another site alot lately. I still look at TCC alot but I trade and buy more there now.

Thanks.

I think this deserves a very, very powerful bump.

An open letter to TCC

In the past, Trading Card Central was an amazing place.  Members posted away to their heart’s desire, shattering posting records day in and day out.  Members would help each other in any way they could, offering advice and conversing about the hot topics that our hobby provides.  Chat nights on Thursday were the event of the week, with twenty members filling the chat room and participating in contests.  Team members were active in any and every way; answering questions, responding to concerns, and joining in on the general fun that TCC and its members provided.

Today, TCC is still an amazing place.  We have one of the best groups of members that can be found in ANY online community.  However, it seems that some things from the TCC of yesterday are lacking.  Chat nights are no longer the spectacle they once were; it is rare to have over ten members in the chat room at one time.  Many members, including those on various Teams, are not as active as they once were.  I feel that all Team Members (those from the Collector Zone Team, Membership Team, Content and Graphics Team, and the Programming Team) must work to be more active and oriented towards the success of this site. 

With our economy in a mess and an election coming up, a reduced level of activity is understandable.  But, let’s do our best to revive the kind of participation that TCC used to enjoy.  Let’s all do our best – member, Team member, everyone – to contribute to Trading Card Central.  Check out the Hobby Talk forum, bust some boxes, or show off your collection.  If you see a suggestion in the Suggestion Box forum, let everyone know how you feel about it!  Join the chat on Thursdays at 9 PM EST – you never know what might happen!

Let’s all continue to make Trading Card Central a better place!

- ffman – Membership Team member and dedicated Trading Card Central fanatic

I ain't going anywhere. Certain threads I avoid. I try to stay positive within the hobby in general. I will start posting profiles of potential RC sleepers and other topics soon. I've been tied up with other life issues but am trying to stay involved as much as possible. I could use some trades biggrin.gif but alas that is the least of my priorities at the moment. My pm inbox is always open to any member of this great site. I will try my best to respond timely. Remember the quickest way to get CZT support with an action be it closing a thread or something, just use the report post option. I just say please dont go crazy with that tool. The team is monitoring many things and everyone's issues are equally important. Now CMB for trades tongue.gif smile.gif

The original post was meant for a few months ago....the bump was in reference to the negative atmosphere lately.

I couldn't agree more. I hardly trade here any more because people can get downright nasty if you offer a trade and then they feel insulted. On "the other site", I recommended a low end traders spot and it was received pretty well. I don't have super great cards I mainly set collect. I'm so gun shy now to even offer trades to some people for fear they will accuse me of wasting their time. What's up with that?

My original post recopied from another topic (one of which partially led to this topic being brought back):

What is wrong with everyone? Not just regular members, or CZT - EVERYONE?! Why do we have to be confrontational about everything, and spew hurtful comments when we don't agree with someone?

This isn't the TCC I have enjoyed over the past 3 years. I remember this place for the great people and community it offers. Right now, TCC isn't showing this. We are blessed with many kind, generous, caring, and even loving people, so why do we have to butt heads like we do? It's okay to disagree, but it seems like the differences recently have gone far past a "disagreement". There is no reason for some of the attitudes that some of our GREAT members have showcased lately.

TCC is my online home (and always will be) but it almost doesn't seem like it lately.
