    It's a terrible forum

    People making fluff posts about it is why it's terrible

    Not that complicated, maybe if you all didn't pretend it wasn't* a joke he'd have fixed it by now

    edit - for a bunch of knife guys most of you are VERY sensitive lol

    Yea called out an objectively terrible forum for being terrible. That's how things get fixed

    You misunderstood; I, for one, have thoroughly enjoyed your role in all of our lives here thus far. Good fun.

    Your company makes great knives, great product

    But the service you offer in that forum is terrible.

    Approving posts when she feels like it? lol

    Mind blowing you would ask any of your customers to go through that. Joke

    edit - if your product had anything to do with tech I would never touch them again, that's how put off I was at that forum.

    And any new member with sense who tried to post there would feel the same. Who are probably generally speaking your customers who you are treating like dirt on that forum

    Just because you got treated like dirt doesn’t mean everyone does. Something to think about.

    I am fairly new to the Spyderco forum and I have had no problems. Be specific as to the issue you had.

    • More insults
    They put instant restrictions on your account

    They allowed me to post then never allow me to respond because I needed some mod who is never on and never responded to approve it. And even if they had how am I supposed to carry on my thread if I have to wait 24 hours each time I want to post?

    It's laughable. I figured it would go away once an admin saw and gave me approval

    I would have logged out and never came back in but I felt the need to reply to people who wre in the thread I started via PM because the derp running the place seemed afk for days. Or was just ignoring me as they obviously do others

    Never in my life have I experienced such a terrible forum.

    Did you not read the thread?

    I had assumed I was alone until I saw Dave's post

    Then it became clear, that forum is terrible. My experience was an anecdote. This thread proves my experience is pretty standard

    And to be clear no one was rude to me. I was just ignored as many others clearly are. Which is fine if you allow the forum to function like this one

    If everything requires admin approval...You better hire some admins to sit there and approve things.

    Why would anyone sane ever offer that to their customer? I have no idea.

    So off putting

    @BigWillie if you want to start a thread about this subject I'd recommend the Whine & Cheese subforum, which is where folks go to blow off steam or otherwise tell it like it is. :) You should try it, I bet you'll get a lot of authentic discussion!
