Im going to vent here rather than complain in Brad's [BWM] thread at Off Topic.
This isnt about politics. None of that.
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.
But I looked the other day and what do I find?
Garbage. Bull shit and incomplete data.
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
Its simply wrong.
