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!

I'll sign on to this post with my support, empathy and never-ending loyalty to Cody (ffman).
He has been a shining star on this site and I really shouldn't have to write that.
Let's start making this a better place.
It's about the site, not about you and I as individuals.
We will grow bigger, better and more prolonged by keeping this in mind.
This is the greatest Trading Card Forum on the net and each and every member has contributed to the success of TCC.
That stated, we need to do more.
There are Forums and subjects that are neglected and overlooked.
Cody is right, Let's make it better.

Collect Hard!,
RGBII

Wow, excellent post Cody. I know I'm semi-new to the site, but I'm actually excited to see this post, probably as much as anyone else. I really feel like this kind of attitude is what's need more than anything here on TCC, and it absolutely starts with the top. I'm more than willing to help where I can, when I can to get TCC back on the right track towards growth and success. This site already has some of the best members (MODs especially) that I've ever encountered on any forum I've been a part of. The potential is there. I think we all just need to come together, motivate, energize, and really just push this site to greater success.

I wish I could attend Thursdays and hope to soon.

As far as TCC overall.

I think that not too much has changed since we reached a certain level , It still, by a wide margin, blows away whats left of the other trading forums!

I agree that TCC is probably the best site, but I still think it could be better if the right people put forth the right effort. I have seen several really good suggestions, but haven't seen any changes in my short time here.

This is the best trading site anywhere...it doesn't matter if you don't agree on favorite teams (I'll admit, some of the Steeler fans on here are pretty cool..LOL) or politics...but we all do agree on something....our love of the hobby. And each and every one of us on here fuels the passion for it...I will, as well, do more as a TCC member for each other.

Different states, different teams, different backgrounds, one passion..TCC


Just building my bucket now...keep checking back, I'll have something/more in there soon!
