Wow talk about some old faces returning. Honestly, my belief falls in the line of Ilovetheheat when it comes to why alot of the members left. But it wasnt the CZT as a whole, it was two (and occasionally a third) that I felt overreacted to completely miniscule issues and were very inconsistent when dealing with members. For example at one point I was called an "emo child" told to "Get out of the sandbox" and that same member posted on the message boards while I was suspended that I was harrassing him (baseless claims). That member wasn't disciplined for his remarks but I was suspended for responding to them. And when he made the baseless claims of harrasment, the member was neither disciplined nor was the post edited by the CZT. It just seemed like complete favoritism. I mean, I can admit that my suspensions were probably somewhat warranted. I mean, my first suspension was 30 days (reduced to 14) which still seemed rather high considering I had never been warned prior to that and the typical procedure at TCC was the infamous 72 hour suspension. I wasn't the only one that happened to but they ALL happened to members who were under the age of 18. When you start breaking standard operating procedure and single out the teenagers, what do they do, they rebel, and thats what happened. Most of them left, some stayed on, but the ones that stayed on were clearly not bringing the same attitude that they had previously bought. And clearly, its the under 18 crowd that is making the hobby grow. We all found other sites like FCB that catered more to our wishes at that time (the discussions were dramatically less filtered) and thats what happened. This isn't a critique, this is just stating what happened and I'm sure theres plenty of members who were younger, maybe not even under 18, but were younger members of the site who can back me up on this. And for the record, this started brewing while Bob was still around.
