Sounds like a real lack of customer satisfaction. One would think that they would want to keep their customer base. I know I won't pay very much longer if I keep having to wait like this.
Chit, I'd be dead and buried and two weeks later all these bike will show up for my funeral! LOL
I guess better late than never, huh?

Hey Contessa, yeah we have been asking them for that for a long long time. Not sure what the hold up is.

The problem Softy is they are not being consistent. It's like they pick certain people's posts that they want to delay. I can understand pics. I had the unfortunate experience of having a pic of me altered and shown on the web by a rejected botfriend who clearly did not rise to the occasion. I would hate to see that happen to anyone here.

But I don't understand why some pics are shown and others who don't even post a pic are held for days without being posted.



When we set up the Suggestion category. We were trying to resolve the problem. We'd be patient at present. It just needs some time.


Yes, we are trying to figure out a way to resovle this problem.How about invite some volunteer moderators? We can even offer free gold membership or money for this.

1 How to let moderators approve our memssages timely?
2 How to keep the forum messages' quality?

1) Profane, vulgar or porn messages.
2) Contact information (email, home phone/address, etc.).
3) Any URL regardless of the intent or content of the site.
We should not allow such kind of messages.

If your serious about mods I can help out. I am usually on the site all night anyway. Email if interested.

So when will members name show as the last posted when their post is held to begin with or not showing imediately as they should....??????


The problem is that posts arent showing to begin with not that names are listed as last posted...

I would rather see someones response when they post and not 24 hours later...

Nodey,, Sorry to here he wasnt up for the occasion.. ummmmm
Wheres that pic? Havent had the pleasure of seeing it.. jk

My observation on posts is that the first one of the day seems to show up immediately, while the rest are held up.. So I have to think REAL hard as to where I want my first post to be..LOL

Do you think we overwhelmed KEVIN?? Im thinking that he didnt expect all this.. But part of the game,, right!!

Kevin..

What makes this site so good is the Members mostly.. We view it as OUR site and not BK's, for without us this site wouldnt exist.. To us BK is just a tool we use to communicate with each other. And our primary means here is the "FORUMS".. How well this tool works is up to YOU!!.. You can make lots of changes here, some good and some bad. But remember these changes affect us members and if the changes are for the worse and limit our use here, members are going to be upset and leave. Something for you to think about...

My thoughts again...
hehe

Where did my post go????????????????????
Did it get deleted Kevin?????
Or did someone else delete it?????????
I'm sure others read it!
What's going on here????????????
I'm not asking for any free membership, but just wondering why you didn't take the time to say it was a good idea or a bad one! Is it because of past stuff???? Letters you've recieved from my husband and I? Are you gonna keep this one posted it, or will it too get deleted?????
Another thing, why is my mail not working now????
Did BK have something to do with that too?????????????????????

Yes, we will discuss about this idea.

Maybe you can give us some solutions about it.
We must keep our forum quality and let our members obey the writing rules.


the thing is---if we are paying the posts show up immediately---if not then they wait 24-48 hrs--makes no sense--there are those of us that have paid for a yr or more and for our own personal reasons aren't at the present time--not being able to im or email should be enough---all posts should show up when posted!!!!

we are a family--there are those of us that have met and continue to plan meetings in the future--if one of us goes down you pull the contact hosptial info--plus there should be a place to put biker friendly establishments--those restaurant/pubs/bars that welcome our business--swap meets etc!!!!!

Kevin,

Is there a way to catagorize or open portals to forum messages by members from the UK, Canada, Europe, Australia, Asia,and parts of the US? I have noticed that members located outside of the US have no way of communicating easily with each other and think there has to be a way to seperate some of the discussion forums to accomodate these members..
While at the same time have a combined forum list as we have now.. I enjoy reading their posts from other countries too..
Is there a way to organize the US rides by Regions also? Eastern, Southern, Northern, Central, Midwest, Western,, ECT.....

By the way.. Being as You are a NEWBIE,, We do Appreciate a Photo of Who we are communicating with.. Too bad that pic. on your profile wasnt you!.. LOL

Well why not do a trial basis. i mean we are suppose to be adults here. Just post them and if the group fails to follow the rules, you stop it.Whoever messes up will have to carry the weight from the rest of the BK, for screwing it up.

Was that way in past.. And worked fine mostly..

Problem is they want to stop abuse 100% of time which is unrealistic.. People have a way of getting around it and BK needs to realize that.. I cant see why posting url's will hurt the site, and as far as obscene material--bk can just remove it after the fact.. Mostly I think the problem is that you dont have to be signed in as a member to read/view all the material on this site.. IF bk fixes this and limits the material to signed in members, I see no reason to sensor the materials/posts.. We pay for membership and sign up as adults.. If needed bk should monitor posts more closely to their liking after the fact but not before..
My thoughts and views on this..

Yes, we also want the messages listed ASAP.
But the problem is that how can we let our members obey the rules.

Profane, vulgar or porn messages.
Commercial solicitations, including web URLs.
Contact information (email, home phone/address, etc.).
Any URL regardless of the intent or content of the site.

Kevin
Website Manager

You need to cover yourselves on a legal basis in at least two ways before you once again allow postings to show instantly.

People who are not logged in (non-members ect..)can access the Forums from the front page "Biker Forums" link.

You should add a disclaimer "18 or older.. possible offending content (we do our best to keep it reasonably clean.. please report offending content or abuse.. yada yada yada..) past this point" statement to this link. Have subscribers agree to the same terms before activating new membership.

As for the rest.. leave it to your paying members to police ourselves.. As I stated in another suggestion.. It's not really a problem , unless the customer thinks it's a problem..
We will tell you if it becomes a problem after all we are paying for this service and we want to be comfortable with it.

Post paying members items at once and allow us to police ourselves (all right.. maybe throw in the URL filtering software to prevent spammers ect..).
Continue the delayed posting for non Paying members, just like your doing now.

List the fact that your posts will show up at once as an enticement for more people to pay for membership.

Make instant posting A PERK that comes with your breaking out the credit card and paying.

It would be nicer to see someones name and know that the message will be there as well.

Our website team will discuss about it and decide if we should set up a project about it.
Then our engineers will start to work and test it. It will take about three weeks to apply the idea to our website usually.

Actually BK only started doing this recently to paying members, so why woulod it take three weeks to fix if they haven't even been doing it three weeks, why can't it just go back to the way it was??
