    BoardReader Not Getting It Done

    Im going to vent here rather than complain in Brad's [BWM] thread at Off Topic.
    This isnt about politics. None of that.
    Just business.

    First off? I have no vested interest in this site or the homepage beyond the satisfaction I get out of attempting to have a good time and be a responsive member.
    There is no Mod or Supermod or Administrator that derives any money benefit from our relationship with the Forums.
    Nada. Not a dime.
    Its pure volunteer work because we simply care.

    But that doesnt mean I care less. Like many of the Moderators
    and Members? I care alot.
    Mainly because I appreciate Ryan...and The Wise One...and all the guys
    that Moderate here. As well as every contributing member...no matter how
    post shy he or she might be.

    At the same time? I look around at sites that gather statistics one way or the next.
    Its simply a curiosity for me. A learning experience.

    There is one site called BoardTracker that I believe does a good job.
    Via that particular site?
    I see some 32 referrals. New members that came here and joined as a result of the site's activity. Thats fine.
    Matter of fact? I sent an email off to BoardTracker yesterday and said simply? Thanks. I have no problem saying "Thanks" to anyone.
    Im far more humble than you might imagine by reading my posts.
    Yet I am.

    On the other hand?
    I find a site called BoardReader.
    I picked up on their stats maybe a month ago.
    Interesting. Fine presentation. Fair data.
    Fine.

    But I looked the other day and what do I find?
    Garbage. Bull shit and incomplete data.
    Nonsense data.

    Observe here.

    http://boardreader.com/sp/PC_Perspec..._po_13027.html

    So I want to warn these sites...that cant keep info correct?
    Im on to you.
    This thread is going to hit google in a flash [because I get how google works] and I suggest get the info correct....do what you need to do
    but Im not going to stop until your house is in order.

    It is damaging to this site or any other site to publish
    incorrect information.
    Its simply wrong.

    Re: Tech Complaint BoardReader

    My point is pretty simple: Its tough enough in this business without being
    harmed indirectly by incorrect information that may be seen by potential users/readers and advertisers.

    Fix your stuff or simply dont bother.

    Re: Tech Complaint BoardReader

    Be interesting to see how they are doing the site sampling. Looks like someone is asleep at the wheel.
    "The most dangerous myth is the demagoguery that business can be made to pay a larger share, thus relieving the individual. Politicians preaching this are either deliberately dishonest, or economically illiterate, and either one should scare us...
    Only people pay taxes, and people pay as consumers every tax that is assessed against a business."

    Re: Tech Complaint BoardReader

    So? Complain if you like. Google BoardReader and hit next until you find this piece. Its about on the 4th page ATM.
    Ill be happy with first google page.
    Maybe the point will be made.

    Re: Tech Complaint BoardReader

    Gimme time. Well work this up to first page of "BoardReader" google.
    Google likes me.
    But you know as a News guy? How unfair is that sort of information?
    A "looker" may get a very wrong impression about activity and be turned away.
    Its damaging. Intended or otherwise.

    Cripes. Rolleyes alone took 30,000 views last month.

    But these clowns paint us as "dead"

    Its gotta stop.

    Been a couple threads in folding that are going strong as well. But....
    BoardReader just blows, that simple.
    Jesus they obviously don't sample the left sidebar of pcper's home page.
    Maybe that'll give those idiots a clue where to look.

    Re: Tech Complaint BoardReader

    Well, not to disagree with the effect it might have, but I'd never even heard of BoardReader before today.

    Can't say I'll ever think of 'em again either.

    Ryan should be having a look.
    Potential misrepresentation case.

    See? Now maybe they will respond.
    Wait till the Yahoo Spiders get the piece.

    I want corrected information and an apology to Ryan
    and Staff/and members.

    The ultimate will be when this thread overtakes their site.
    Clowns.
