    Time for an explanation?

    I'm not 'having a go', I enjoy coming on here...but isn't it time there was a proper discussion of whats happening with tcb-world?

    It up, down, back up, down again.......cant anyone find out what's happening, why the gallery isn't running anymore?

    dont understand why this past year there's so many problems with the site

    thanks Deb

    Re: Time for an explanation?

    I agree with you Deb.

    I would love to know when this place will be fully operational, like it was before last July.

    I totally agree. Even Obamacare's website runs smoother than this place does. And that's not saying much at all. I just so happened to accidentally click on the TCB World extension on my Google Chrome browser and saw the site back up to my surprise. But I doubt it stays up. It's like the mods have abandoned ship here.

    I understand your frustrations, I really do BUT you must remember that no one ever asks us for money and it does cost money to keep the site going. Albert , does the best he can(I'm very grateful that TCB is up right now, very much grateful) and I'm sure Albert and all our fine Mod's have a life so to speak away from TCB so honestly I could never complain because everyday you don't get something for free. Donations do go a long way of which I have not offered BUT if it means keeping the site going I'm sure they will let us members know. Very grateful we are up today and thank you to everyone involved in doing so !! Lets have fun, (Elvis fun) !!

    Take care everyone,

    Rams, this really is a great response and to an extent I agree. My main issue is the general apathy that is exhibited here by the admin and mods. There are a few mods who are members on fecc who haven't even shown their faces yet and in my mind, that says a lot about the future of this site.

    I know how expensive and time consuming running a site is and it's not unusual for members to donate, but that is an individual choice and one that I won't even consider at this moment in time.

    There is a part of me that really wants to go in hard here, but I'll be burning bridges and confidences if I do. Catch 22.

    Agree with you ...but ...
    I think that if you have any payments are needed,
    we should know about.
    I do not know how many people will pay. I am able to pass on a certain amount of TCB - World Site.
    On one condition, that it will be acted as Sneake writes ...
    Thank you in advance for your answer

    Someone made a thread about it on the fecc the other day, then it was the following day it was back up. Pure luck someone even checked it, because I haven't done that for ages.

    I still have doubt the site will work well again. I don't know what's happening to the site, but I'm really sorry...

    Re: Time for an explanation?

    If I'm not mistaken, Albert DID come on here when the site came back on Christmas Day and explained the reasons the site was down AND he also said that it will take a long time before the site here (including the picture gallery) would be back up and running normally. I do believe that his schedule for the return of the picture gallery was not to be anytime before the end of 2014. Please just be patient. We all want the site back up and running normally ASAP but...it's going to be a while. I'm just glad that we're back up and running despite the board not functioning the way that it should.

    Re: Time for an explanation?

    We all KNOW why the board was initially down Tony.

    What was the reason for being offline for a further couple of months? Were any noticeable repairs made while it was offline? I just think a heads up would be nice. We need to be offline for x amount of time, check the twitter or facebook for updates or whatever.

    It does not matter to me why its taken so long-my anger is aimed at those who troll sites, down sites with bugs and malware to further their own selfish goals.
    No one here hurts anyone when we discuss Elvis-nor do most people who choose a subject and find sites to discuss that subject with others of like interest.
    It is purely selfish and mean spirited to disrupt sites which are not harming anyone.

    Unfortunate fact of life that some people exploit weakness wherever they see it. I'm done moaning about it now, the site is back up, I'll just enjoy it while I can.
