@KNmeh7@RiotDemon Technically, I didn’t get any free pasta. Someone else got free pasta that I sent them!
I didn’t check to see what it said though. Was it actually a VMP hour or an ‘all member’ hour? If it wasn’t strictly VMP, that would be pretty fucked up. It’s one of the reasons I hand over $60 a year and probably one of the biggest reasons people hold on to it.
@KNmeh7@raccoon81@RiotDemon@dave@snapster Not cool at all. Quite disrespectful to us old timers. One lousy hour, it’s all we ask. Honestly, I’d guess that most VMP’s don’t really care about the Last Call. I think the majority are checking the site within the normal 24 hour time frame. And if they’re not, at this point almost every single thing sold here is either available on the other sites or it comes back here again a month later. As for the other benefits, are any of these even relevant?
Exclusive VMP merch
We like to make things with our logo on it and only let VMPs buy it. It’s just a weird thing we’re into.
Sneak peeks of new features
Sometimes, before we roll out new site features, we try them out on our guinea pi- er, VMP friends first.
Everyone likes a good surprise. Not everyone likes a mediocre surprise though. Don’t get your hopes up too high.
I don’t recall the last time ‘exclusive merch’ was offered. Nor any really groundbreaking new site features that we couldn’t have waited for anyway. As for surprises? Uh yeah… no one has gotten their hopes up in a long time.
@Barney@KNmeh7 Probably just a normal human being (who doesn’t have to create a fake name under which to post) who has other things going on in their life and doesn’t have time to read every e-mail-especially the ones they know are worthless.
@KNmeh7 Hey, hey, hey, NO need to get all racest now, i’m sure there’s a lot of different skin types on morningsave.com, and it sure sounds like YOU have the “whining” covered way more than any drunk I know!! Jus sayen…
@KNmeh7 AMEN. I’ve never gotten an IRK, but when I did get a fuko it was junk returns that didn’t work. Meanwhile I sat back and watched regular meh members get multiple really nice things of value that actually worked.
@Enigma There is a lag. Don’t know when you posted the message above this one, but I have an email time stamped 11:32am central. I am posting this 5:37am central (and I can blame the cats for even being awake at this hour) so see what your email time stamp is. Also sometimes things go wrong. Once I, without doing anything, stopped receiving any emails from meh. I went to settings and it said I was signed up for emails. I undid that and redid that. No change. Wrote support. They fixed the problems.
@Kidsandliz oh, I posted immediately after you did (I’d been manually refreshing the page). It’s showing 12:22am CST. I’d say that was pretty close. Probably a 10 minute difference.
As for your 5:37am post, yes that way off. I checked for me emails this morning around 10am CST and nothing was there. Not even your replies to my post last night. The time stamp on the email shows 5:50am. I nodded off writing this post so it’s 2:19 am/ Oct 10th I’m hitting submit now. I’m nothing off so I’ll check my profile later today when I wake. Thanks for all your help.
@Enigma@RiotDemon All I see is where I reply to someone or make a comment. Mine only has kidsandliz added a comment or kidsandliz added a reply. Moderators may see more, but as a user that is all that is in mine.
@Enigma@RiotDemon PS actually as a moderator it would make sense you get to see more than us. At times you will need to know when people flag you and we don’t (although we can choose to be notified via email). This way you can just log in and look in your profile and won’t have to keep going back and forth from email to meh forums picking through your email to see all the meh messages. Not to mention you can still see if people flag you without cluttering up your email if you so desire as likely you get far more tags than non-moderators (well outside of maybe a couple of people).
@Enigma@RiotDemon PPS and probably in there it also says when I add a thread but I didn’t look far enough through mine to see what that says. I just looked far enough to see they were only one way - me posting on the forum.
@Enigma@RiotDemon@sammydog01 No I am not wrong about what is listed on my profile. I just looked at mine. That may be true about emails (I have never paid enough attention to know one way or another), but I was responding to what I saw in my profile - which is only outgoing by me and not incoming. I wasn’t talking about emails. I still have some incoming email notifications not yet looked at on the thread nor clicked on via email yet) and they are not listed in my profile.
@Lynnerizer@RiotDemon I meant that I didn’t look at the comments on the IRKs, where people post their order numbers; I would be able to see if people who got them during the VMP/members hour had a V or a heart by their names.
As a VMP I use it on the other companion sites as we still have a discount on morning save, sometimes items that get cycled here end up being cheaper there as theyre offered for the same price or the discount ends up lowering the asking price enough to warrant a savings.
@ChadP@datruandi@ELUNO@sammydog01 I’ve e-mailed Thumperchick numerous times about “onlyonetruth” and the fact that he created a new account for trolling which shouldn’t be allowed as well as his insulting abusive posts and never received a response from her. My experience with being ignored.
If so, then why don’t they say anything about what’s planned for VMPs going forward?
It may be that those particular employees: don’t know what the plan is going forward, talks (if there are any) are still underway, nothing is formalized, whatever is (or is not) being talked about isn’t ready to be released to the public yet, they don’t have clearance to release something… Typically (the few times it has happened that I recall) there is some sort of semi formal announcement about what it up with VMP on it’s own thread.
@Felton10@sammydog01@Thumperchick The name calling and trolling though is against stated forum rules that they posted when the racist stuff went on and then was deleted by meh. If name calling, etc. rules aren’t going to be enforced then maybe they need to just delete those rules?
however employees are/should be held to a different behavioral standard with interactions in the context of their job and on work related forums. Professionalism, even if the other person is being a total jerk, is one common expectation in the work place. Dealing with people behaving that way isn’t fun, but it is part of the job. Learning how to both deal with it appropriately and also learning how not to let others push your buttons is a useful skill; one that is helpful both on and off the job (off the job with parenting on occasion just for instance ).
@Felton10 The person you are talking about keeps saying they’ll stop the abusive trolling if you stop the abusive trolling. But you just can’t seem to help yourself. How about just fucking stop posting political bullshit? I’m sure there’s a place at Reddit made just for you.
@sammydog01@Chad P My posts were not directed at him-just a comment about Trump yet his posts from the get go were personal, insulting and demeaning-just like Trump. By allowing him to create a separate account and post his shit, you are enabling him. He is probably part of your click and that is why you are reacting that way. I am not responding to any of his posts directly but he responds to mine by insulting me and calling me names. If that OK with you-fine.
I will continue to express my opinion regardless of how that fucking POS responds.
@Felton10@sammydog01 Actually @onlyonetruth can stop being abusive if he wants to. His behavior with respect to stopping shouldn’t depend on what someone else does first. No one is forcing him to behave like that. It is a character statement about someone who trolls others, mocks them, name calls them, bullies them… And we have a handful of people on this forum who do exactly that to select others, some of whom answer a number of people’s comments in inappropriate ways that would violate forum rules, others who only pick on a few. It is an issue not just in the political threads or when politics is dragged into the non-political ones.
And of course in the pandemic, when sales are likely down (and thus the lots of left over stuff we see here over and over from their other venues), meh may not have the resources to have someone have policing this kind of behavior as part of their job description. And moderators are volunteers and they have a life outside of the forums that they need to attend do and may or may not have the time on any given day. Forums though generally aren’t self policing with this kind of behavior - which is unfortunate. It generally takes forum owner intervention.
@Felton10: You created me. Own it. In my past life, I spent my politicking time at various political websites, where I was reasonably prolific in their respective forums. I’d come to Meh and enjoy a nice change of pace over a warm cup of tea. I was a 99% lurker here, but I got Meh, and I enjoyed it.
You, on the other hand, have spewed all kind of mindless hate here. If your political posts were strictly aimed at politicians, and done in constructive ways (as others here seem to be able to do), then I would have just considered you as part of the background noise. I didn’t agree with a lot of the political leanings, but to each their own. But you made it all about hate. You had a few comrades, but it was by far you who blindly hurled venom, wished disease and death upon everyone who you disagreed with, and used Meh as a sounding board for your rank insanity.
So because you decided to turn Meh’s forum into Mother Jones or the Huffington Post’s mean girls club, I decided to call you out on it. This is now where I spend my time politicking, as a public service, if you will. You want to be a complete, unmitigated jackass? OK - I will call you out on it every step of the way. Or else take it back to Huffpo or Atlantic or whatever. They’re all nutso wackjobs over there, and you’ll be very comfortable among them. I promise not to follow you there.
@Kidsandliz: It’s hard to know from day to day whether you’re going to be the hapless victim, the high-riding self-proclaimed voice of reason, or just a general Karen. Apparently, today is Karen day. Ok then. Whatevs.
@Felton10: It also bears mentioning that your victim card (“I don’t even respond to that Russian bot, and yet he still harasses me…”) is utter bullshit. You either respond to others about me, or you create a new reply as either a stated or implicit reference to me. It’s passive aggressive and childish.
You’re a bully. Man up an deal with it when you’re called out on it. You’re nor fooling anyone worth fooling with this crybaby shit.
Just so we’re all clear on who/what we’re dealing with here, someone tried over and over and over again last night to hack this account (I have dozens of password reset notifications in my email). There are a very finite number of people who know about this account, and even fewer who give a damn about it. There’s no monetary value in hacking it.
Why, I wonder, would someone be so intent on trying to access my current Meh account? Is everyone here playing with a full deck?? That’s rhetorical - no need to answer.
@onlyonetruth Not sure why you are tagging me but I’d suggest contacting support. I’d imagine they have a record of the attempts and likely the IP address used to make those attempts. I’d guess they can then use that to match it against others who have logged on to meh.
@ChadP@FreePasta Thanks - I get it. I do appreciate the link, and I agree with the sentiment therein. With that said, this thread has (d)evolved into an analysis of who people are, what their motives might be, and the putative role of Meh in policing their forum. Consider my request, if nothing else, food for thought as to who among the forum posters really might be… a little off.
@hamachisea the things I’ve gotten have been in emails. There was a coupon code for an item at morning save, had a few choices. Another one to get free pasta if you put in a code at the beginning on the new pasta week.
Does anyone have a link to what ALL of the prefixes mean or ANY of the other cool stuff that was set up WAY back when…? Like even where it tells you about the 8 ball and how to do the /buy? How do we find it? Please and thank you of course!!
