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!
