For the last year or whatever, this site has gotten more and more cumbersome and difficult to use. Its the single biggest reason you've lost so much traffic. People are tired of trying to post here and use this fishing site as a resource. It took me ten minutes to figure out how to post a picture this morning, and I've been a member of this website FOR FIFTEEN YEARS! The tools you have here do not work efficiently, and haven't for quite some time. If you want to be a legitimate fishing resource for Charleston, you need to make this LESS COMPLEX and EASIER TO USE. 90% of the original posters here, which drive your traffic and therefore your ad revenue, are gone because of how painful it is to use this site. Please revamp this thing and make it right. This is 2021; let's go.

--The pages are super slow to load even when there are no images on it-FIX IT.
--Uploading pictures to posts is hit or miss. More than 50% of the time, I get the stupid ERROR code with NO EXPLANATION as to what's wrong-FIX IT.
--Randomly it won't let you post anything. This happens on a new topic and less frequently on an already started topic-FIX IT.
--Computers these days are much faster. There's no reason to only load like 10 topics at a time. Load them all based on the time period the user selects (Last day)-FIX IT.
--Avatars don't work 90% of the time. Look around. This is day one stuff and SHOULD NOT BE COMPLICATED-FIX IT.
--The Home page has potential; its not terrible, but its in the wrong order. People come to CF.com for information. It should be: Weather, Tide, Sponsors, Fishing Content. In that Order-FIX IT.
--And the background should be the same format as the forums-FIX IT.

I've sent you two emails over the last month on this with ZERO response-FIX IT.

All of this is said with frustration, and love. I've loved this site over the years and met some great people here. But this must be said. You are killing what this site has become over the years.

If I cared enough I would post the exchanges I have had with the current admin, there have been a couple. After I posted on the other "Yo Admin" thread about them not giving a rats arse about the website and were just farming clicks to sell personal information they contacted me back. Imagine that.

Another time we had an exchange was when they put a couple of "posers" in time out and changed my name from Head Administrator to just EF. I offered my services at moderation at which time the conversation abruptly ended and no reply since. Again, surprise surprise.

That's the main reason I post my fishing pics buried in other threads, so they don't pimp me out like they are doing every single one of you guys that post a report her. All give and no take. Although a "southern man doesn't need Neil Young around anyway", Mr. Young was still spot on when he said he wasn't going to be a "Joke for Coke". I just don't want my reports and hard work pimped out, thats all.

Several times I have attempted to start a new thread and when I click "post", I get the little red circle with the line through it. Very frustrating and one of several reasons I come here less than I used to. Kind of defeats the purpose if you can't easily start a thread. Really sucks, this used to be a great site.

YouTube is your friend. The rear drum seal had worn out so while I was at it, I replaced the belt and the idler pulley. It was a piece of cake.

Despite what PeePod would have you think, I am fairly handy and like DIY projects. The parts cost me around $55. I can imagine what a repair guy would have charged.

Last month I replaced our pool liner....................again, following a YouTube video. Saved $500 and probably did a better job than the last guy I paid to do it.

i for one am glad the dm feature don't work. some of the stuff yall sent over the years is troubling. scarring even. some scolded me which i probly deserved. some gave me tips like eatin red clay, holdin worms in your mouth, peein on jellyfish stings, warmin up your outboard on dry land at the ramp, pleasuring your wife with freerange honey, some others i forget. the photo attachments made the narrative look like choir boys. some of you are degenerates.

Fred, you keep saying "EF posts in the wrong place" or "EF should be band for this or that", or "EF is putting his reports and pictures in travel for mysterious reasons" and such childish schitt as that. WTF dude, why does whatever I do make you say I should be band or that I am breaking some sort of rule? You need to stand above that behavior, unless of course I have wronged you some way and if thats the case speak up so I can make it right or stop throwing stones.

Here's a suggestion for you sir, and I say this in the most nicest and sincere way I can type it. You need to look up occasionally as things are clearly flying over your head.

Hello members,

My name is Chris, and I want to take this opportunity to let you know the status of the site, and to answer a few questions some of you have posed in this thread. This site has been around for about 20 years, and over those 20 years not that much on the site has changed. Yet during those 20 years the world changed significantly, and now there are more ways to share and communicate with friends and your community than ever. A little more than a year ago, I, along with my brother and a close friend, decided to purchase Charleston Fishing to try to breathe new life into it. We saw an opportunity to create an online community where people help each other, learn about fishing, connect with each other, and treat each other with respect.

Just before we purchased Charleston Fishing, the previous owners decided to upgrade the forum to a new version in an effort to make the forum better and more usable. While the previous owners had the best intentions, many people were very upset when this change took place, and justifiably so. Simply put, the new forum does not work well. Unfortunately, the new forum is written in an antiquated programming language, using antiquated technology, and is closed source (meaning we do not have access to the code to fix it). This leaves us with only one option - replacing the forum again, which is an enormous undertaking. Our vision for the site includes a forum that is much easier to use, it will be faster and will be free of bugs. We are hard at work on making our vision a reality, and just ask that you are patient with us during this transitional phase. In the end, I can assure you that the new site will be worth the wait.

In the meantime, tight lines, and please try to be a little more respectful to each other (looking at you Edisto Fisher wink).

PS: I have been using Charleston Fishing for 10 years, and am also very frustrated waiting for pages to load and dealing with the errors. I'm an avid fisherman and am looking forward to turning this site around!

Haha, EF advocates members be compensated by Admin for their fishing reports and contributions...

How about this EF.... Harold posts a link to his BBQ sauce he sells under his name on every post... With Harold being on the "featured" posts for the whole world to see wouldn't that drive traffic to his product's website for free? Sounds fair to me...



I look at it like this Harold, if you saw someone using your exact sauce recipe, your exact logo, your exact packaging, and basically your entire corporate identity without giving your credit or some sort of compensation would you be pissed? All I am asking for is a tiny bit of sweet feed in the forum section at the end of the day for the content we provide pro bono.

Is that too much to ask? You said you didn't understand what was up with me posting that link, I hope you see what I saw now.

Can I get an AMEN up in here brother? How's about a high 5? Fist bump? Tip of the cap?

Keep posting Harold, don't pay any attention to me. When and if things change around here you can thank me then, until then I'll keep posting links and knocking on doors just looking for a little sweet feed, and you keep putting up those awesome reports I so enjoy reading.

My name is Chris, and I want to take this opportunity to let you know the status of the site, and to answer a few questions some of you have posed in this thread. This site has been around for about 20 years, and over those 20 years not that much on the site has changed. Yet during those 20 years the world changed significantly, and now there are more ways to share and communicate with friends and your community than ever. A little more than a year ago, I, along with my brother and a close friend, decided to purchase Charleston Fishing to try to breathe new life into it. We saw an opportunity to create an online community where people help each other, learn about fishing, connect with each other, and treat each other with respect.

Just before we purchased Charleston Fishing, the previous owners decided to upgrade the forum to a new version in an effort to make the forum better and more usable. While the previous owners had the best intentions, many people were very upset when this change took place, and justifiably so. Simply put, the new forum does not work well. Unfortunately, the new forum is written in an antiquated programming language, using antiquated technology, and is closed source (meaning we do not have access to the code to fix it). This leaves us with only one option - replacing the forum again, which is an enormous undertaking. Our vision for the site includes a forum that is much easier to use, it will be faster and will be free of bugs. We are hard at work on making our vision a reality, and just ask that you are patient with us during this transitional phase. In the end, I can assure you that the new site will be worth the wait.

In the meantime, tight lines, and please try to be a little more respectful to each other (looking at you Edisto Fisher wink).

PS: I have been using Charleston Fishing for 10 years, and am also very frustrated waiting for pages to load and dealing with the errors. I'm an avid fisherman and am looking forward to turning this site around!

Thank you for a response. Even if it took you three weeks, I appreciate you at least saying something. I understand where you're coming from, but you need to understand that you've now probably lost 90% of your audience. I'm sure your traffic is down tremendously. I'm not sure how long the remaining ones will stick around. Personally I'm shocked people are still advertising here.

When do you think the new website will be published? One week, one month, one year?

You sir, have an open invitation to come fish with me anytime that meets your schedule. I'd like to share some thoughts with you and pick your brain a little. Seriously, anytime.

Yaay, a response from admin. Good to know there is an actual human involved and that there may be some attempt to revive this site. I have met many great folks here, made friends, learned a lot and seen the best and worst side of people here. I hope the site can eventually be restored to its former glory before it is too late. Thanks for the information.

I am not so sure I concur with your assessment 100%. Lets just take your thread about Reds Chewing......

https://www.charlestonfishing.com/Forums/Topic/Posts/185398?pagenum=1&archived=0

.....as an example. You posted, went to the top of the slick Homepage, got only two responses in the forum section,,,,,,,, but if you look you have almost 1000 hits on that post. Those clicks aren't coming from forum posters, this is painfully obvious.

I guess what I am saying is that forum participant numbers are certainly down, most likely a lot more than the 90% you suggest too, but I am not so sure 90% of the clicking audience has been lost as evidenced by the 1000 or so hits on your Reds Chewing thread that are generated from the slick homepage, and not from forum participation. You have to hand it to Chris, it's brilliant really. I wish I'd thought of it, it's applicable across a ton of dead forums truth be told.

And one more thing, from what I can tell the advertisers don't see the forums much at all , they are only shown and are interested in the clicks that the slick homepage produces. I am sure if they knew what a douschbag RBF and crew were they would pull the plug toot sweet. They, but RBF in particular, are bad for business. They don't fish or hunt except for the fishing and hunting they do here in the forums section to stroke their self aggrandized egos.

If the current forum participants really want to make a difference they should continue to Shun the ringleader RBF and the others, you know who they are, we all do. Just don't engage them, simply treat them like the leaches they are just like their friends in real life have done. I know, I know, much like a pestering dog dick knat they will get a well deserved swatting occasionally, but simply move away from the fleabag and carry on.

Talk about an ego...

EF, you came back and proclaimed yourself: EF – Head Administrator
Then you became: The Poser Formally Known as EF
Then: EF – On Double Secret Probation
Now: Just EF

I typically keep my comments in the political forum where they belong... And yes, I do fish as much as possible and hunt occasionally on my 2 pine plantations in Horry county...

Reality is you have the temperament of a young teenage girl, and I am sure Admin sees you for just that...

You have claimed so far:
* The site's new function is the problem
* RBF and a few others are the problem
* A sponsor here Gotcha Covered/Lee Strickland was the problem and that was the start of the downfall of the site
* That Admin is pimping people out here for “clicks” and members should be compensated for their reports and contributions and that is a problem
* That Admin is selling members' information and that is a problem

You sure do seem to find a lot of fault in everything on this site...

I have a novel idea EF, since you enjoy bad mouthing the site, and denigrating it so often... Why don't you just offer to buy it, make it your own site, and then you can banded who you don't like... Come on EF, pony up and make Admin a huge money offer and see if they will take it...

Also, name one time I have ever cursed at any member... You have done so several times via acronyms, and words the site has blocked out most of the letters...

I gots something to say about it.

All the CENSORSHIP going on with FB TWITTER GOOGLE YAHOO

NO COMMENTARY ALLOWED UNLESS IT CONFORMS TO THEIR AGENDA

Essentially free speech is silenced.

CF allows the free exchange of ideas...It never censored talk of HCQ/COVID/ELECTION ANOMALIES...

The site even allows fools to argue endlessly...if you are inclined to waste you're time reading it...

YOU CAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


IF CF wants to make a buck off a picture of Harrolds fush or my pig handing me tools...good on them.
I give up my claim by putting said picture on
THEIR WEBSITE...OUR WEBSITE...that "they" pay for...and "we" don't.

If you want to go to tin cans and a string to communicate...keep it up.

Thank GOD there is a site on the internet that ALLOWS UNFETTERED SPEECH


A rare thing these days.

Thanks CF for a FREE site to communicate with like minded FREE peeps. I read for years while Skinny argued with a fence post...Cracker Larry offered sage advice....BONZO was BONZO...

THANKS CHRIS.

mdaddy, I agree with most of your assessment. However, what is happening with businesses/corporations isn't "censorship." It is simply their right to decide with whom the wish to allow to use THEIR platform... This isn't the government attempting to stifle 1st amendment rights...

With regards to CFC and them posting/featuring people with pictures and their content/experiences.. I fully support the CFC team/owners with THEIR efforts... No one is forcing anyone to post anything here... Share if you wish...

Also, the notion of members being "compensated" with some "sweet feed" is ridiculous... Reality is there are several members who aren't sponsors that "pimp" their products, personal youtube channels, etc. here for FREE... Harold has his product link in his signature line as well as Optiker with his Eye Strike business... I don't see them or many others listed as official sponsors paying for the advertisement and clicks they get for free... Seems rather "liberal" to me the new and old CFC owners allowing it without being compensated in return...

Anyhoo... Spot on assessment IMO, and thanks for putting much of this nonsense into a mature and rational perspective...

There is a reason I put the word "censorship" into quotes...wink

Reality is major social media platforms banding people wouldn't be "censorship" due to the user accepting the TOS when joining...

Here is twitter's TOS:

https://twitter.com/en/tos

"We may suspend or terminate your account or cease providing you with all or part of the Services at any time for any or no reason, including, but not limited to, if we reasonably believe: (i) you have violated these Terms or the Twitter Rules and Policies or Periscope Community Guidelines, (ii) you create risk or possible legal exposure for us; (iii) your account should be removed due to unlawful conduct, (iv) your account should be removed due to prolonged inactivity; or (v) our provision of the Services to you is no longer commercially viable."



It is funny how Drumpf wanted his administration/government to censor/terminate TikTok because people were making fun of him....

At the end of the day, Drumpf can still spin his lies on other media platforms... You know like the personal blog he started that went "bankrupt"... wink

Why engage him? Best to just shun him with his lies and spin. He thinks that if you regurgitate something and spin it into lies that somehow that makes him credible with his dribble. Just don't acknowledge him, eventually he will go away.

Here is a prime example of what I am talking about ,,,,,,

RBF says,,,,,"the notion of members being "compensated" with some "sweet feed" is ridiculous... Reality is there are several members who aren't sponsors that "pimp" their products, personal youtube channels, etc. here for FREE... Harold has his product link in his signature line as well as Optiker with his Eye Strike business...

Seems rather "liberal" to me the new and old CFC owners allowing it without being compensated in return...


He knows full well that I said that the "sweet feed" in my example was some simple moderation. It doesn't serve his self aggrandized ego if his constant negativity and ignorance are put in a box. It is indicative of his personality, and I feel certain because of that he is loathed by those who know him personally.

For what it's worth Optiker and Harold put up more quality information in a single one of their posts than he ever has,,,,,,no kidding, go check for yourself. Dont fall for his lies and spin.

Simply ignore him. Continue the Shunning of RBF, don't feed the trolls and they will starve* is the best line I've heard lately.

It's the only way. Watch, he's gonna come in here lying and spinning and deflecting, but much like the pestering dog dick gnat he is, just simply move away from the fleabag and carry on.

It's working, his nonsense has been roughly cut in half in the past few weeks. We're halfway there maybe.

EF here is your direct quote I was referring to:



I look at it like this Harold, if you saw someone using your exact sauce recipe, your exact logo, your exact packaging, and basically your entire corporate identity without giving your credit or some sort of compensation would you be pissed? All I am asking for is a tiny bit of sweet feed in the forum section at the end of the day for the content we provide pro bono.
Originally posted by Edisto Fisher



Based off this quote it was clear you were advocating members being compensated. Yes, you did say all you were looking for was "moderation" and a few other things, but you indicated clearly that members should be "compensated" for there input/contributions... Not sure the "jump" you are attempting to make for compensation to be simple moderation is believable at this point...

Funny how you proclaim to everyone to just ignore me, yet you don't do the same.... In the end, you just want me and certain others banded because we don't live up to YOUR standards... I don't go running off to admin complaining about anyone as most are grow mature adults here, and I am a "live and let live" type of person... Guess you aren't...



However, I do find it interesting the new Admin called you out specifically to be more respectful to others...
