Nobody complained on your posting you are realistic and not some overly optimistic person instilling false hope into people, you keep the place lively with your sometimes controversial posts, it's a change from the norm, and quit pointing your fingers at me, you are the one to complain too about surveys, etc, you only seem to change your stance quite a lot, you were the first to call surveys mafia, thieves, etc, and all of a sudden you seem to praise them, people have a right to "cry" (your words) and complain when many of us have seen an 80% drop of income. I used to earn $200 a month from surveys in the past, and $300-$400 here on CS, lucky this month if I get $50, I think I have every reason to complain or should I just be happy about it ? Just because you are doing well does not mean it is the majority, in fact a lot of people here are noticing the same issues with both surveys and tasks. Some people might disagree with you but don't feel that you are an annoyance, it is always and has always been somewhat refreshing to read your posts, because you are not afraid to say things as they are, forums need more people like you to say things as they are, and luckily you don't have a community manager up your arse here to censor you, misinterpret you and threaten you. Though I agree sometimes that a break from the norm is beneficial. I took a long break too from posting when I was busy with my freelancing contracts, probably the biggest mistake I did was to return to a platform that was basically censorship - but here it has never been as such and all kinds of discussions have been welcomed good and bad, minus religion and politics of course :D

I know you though you probably will be back posting before 30 days, it's in your blood :D

See you soon :) Whenever there is something positive I will be sure to post about it, remind me when that happens though because all I see is sh*t all around, I do give credit when due, but you won't see me bullshit and praise - I'm not a hypocrite, and I too say things as they are, I won't say shit to please others, if there is positive, I will give credit and praise, if there is negative I will cite negative, if there is more negative, then it's just that. I've been an active member since 2012 so I think I know how to gauge when the situation is good and when it's heading south.

Cheers

You are a smart guy Tasman1 taking a break from posting - I have done this too for months / years at a time, when I came back from my break, all I saw were fights between mods, between users, members complaining of surveys, tasks, etc, this should be telling to those who accuse me of posting negative things, need I remind them that I was away from this forum for a long time, and these complaints have always existed. YET nobody complained about me in the years when I was helping around with tasks, offers, posting success stories, not a single bad rep in those years but yet the moment you post negative stuff people FORGET all the good you did, that's human nature I guess and hypocrisy in some.
It is because some of these people are sitting on a gold mine and doing well, so it's easy to have complete disregard toward others who are in less good situations, some people have no compassion or respect at all - to those who have complained about my posts, one day you will be in this situation and you will bite those words as you too will complain. I have seen this all too many times.

In those years I have posted MANY positive things, I cannot make up stories that do not exist just to please some touchy members or specific moderators, when there is negative it needs to be stated, when there is positive, it is stated too, but people will only look at the negative and judge a person accordingly, and forget all those years of positives.

You are a wise man for taking a break, if I were to take a break too and come back I would see the same complaints. I was gone from here for a very long time, yet there were fights, attacks, many people left and all that BS, yet I was not around, and now that I am around, I am being blamed and the next target victim .... If people want to read only positive and false positives, then that is not a community, and if people are not happy with one another's posts, there are CIVIL ways to deal with things, saying stuff like "this member is crying" name calling, making shit personal is uncalled for, not only from members but moderators.

I hope Karma is real, these people who have big success out of nowhere attacking those less fortunate, one day you may be in this situation and you will see what it feels like hopefully - Now I am not talking about you Tasman1, I have always enjoyed reading your posts, people know which ones I am referring to - Taking a break from posting about offers and tasks might be a good idea, but you won't see me make up false success stories that's not me.

If I come across a bad task or survey I will keep on posting about it, will make better choice of words though and not mention scam and other stuff like that, but you won't see me lie about success just to please some people.

That may very well be the point.....when you are positing positive information, it is helping members.

When you post negative information, is that helping members?

Some times there are 'trouble makers' on an active forum. It almost wouldn't make sense if there
wasn't a few to come along now and then. Some people get a big laugh out of it. Some are nothing
more than children getting a kick out of stirring up trouble. It happens.

We're all human and we can get very aggravated at times with this stuff, especially when we are
booted from surveys or something else. Seems members tend to complain more when things are
not good for them then they do when things are going great.

You are correct Valerie, this is human nature to emphasize the negative more than the positive - but there are ways to deal with situations - you can disagree with another member or not like their posts, there are CIVIL ways to point it out, and there are disgraceful ways, such as resorting to personal attacks and war. Regardless of how a member may be posting negative stuff moderators need to set examples, and not try to add fuel to the fire by making personal attacks to a member at fault. Now let me ask you this question Valerie, let's say there are more positives than negatives, do you honestly think that those of us so-called "complainers" will only post complaints mostly ? It would not be logical. I have been a member here since 2012, I have posted countless times success stories, encouragement, success with tasks and surveys, I've even been active and participated actively in tasks topics helping others, etc, but those FEW who are against me now and all out war, FORGET that, hence, the human nature of looking at negative more than positive - However, I cannot just MAKE stories up just for the kicks of it, that would be hypocrisy. If there are more negative posts than positives it is because the situation calls for it. I've been absent from this forum for a long time during that long break, am I the problem here, NO. Because when I came back it was a MESS, it was war and flaming BETWEEN moderators, between mods and members, members and other members, and there were nothing but negative posts about tasks and surveys, that situation existed long before I came back Valerie.

I have posted countless HELPFUL and positive posts in the PAST when they called for it, or I would have received all the likes, which I do not care for BTW this is just an example. Am I the only one here who sees a massive decline in quality of our tasks and surveys ? NO.......these complaints have been made by many.... I may have used wrong choice of words and let frustration get the best of me - but yet some assumed I am a bad person and made their mind right away not looking at the GLOBAL picture and all the help I provided here - Frustration sometimes gets the most out of a person and which can cause sometimes absurdities and wrong choice words, it's not like I have done this for the past 7 years though - it's very easy from the perspective of a user who is doing so well to look DOWN to the users less fortunate - some have compassion some unfortunately will find any possible ways to attack - it's disappointing that this is coming from staff though - As far as your posts, they have been nothing but compassionate and professional I have nothing against yours but I am talking about another moderator - When I complain here I complain about the situation with tasks and surveys I have never attacked another member directly, but when people turn around and make it personal and attack me, I will defend myself in kind.

I should have said that I feel somehow cheated and somehow some tasks appear to be to lower accuracy, wrong choice of words, this is true, I should have said that many authors neglect to update their tasks and accuracy, my bad, but there are ways to address a problem - being rude, unprofessional, condescending is not the way to get a point across.

As to posting negatives YES it can be helpful, if I know a SURVEY ID is bad and off quota at the end, I would be very helpful in warning a member about it, it would members frustration in going through an expired survey !! That is a positive. I am only human and sometimes frustration gets the best of me and I use wrong choice of words, but should I just lie and post good stuff and forget about the bad ? Because stats do not lie, I am not the only one here who has seen a drastic drop in surveys and tasks, these complaints have existed long before I returned from break, just because some members or staff are doing good does not mean they should condescend those who aren't !

I will be careful with choice of words, but I won't stop reporting my experiences, good or bad, if there is positive I will post positive, like I normally do - and I do give credit where due - In tasks many times I have posted JOB IDs of good tasks, but some people will only see the NEGATIVE posts - if there are more now than ever before there is a reason.

I have never stopped working hard here, I'm not lazy, I used to earn $300+ in the old days, now lucky if I can do 2 figure this month, it's declining - surveys, tasks, it is not out of laziness, I work 100x as hard now and do my best.

As to newbies, they will find out for themselves when they join and work on tasks and surveys, they don't have to read any negative posts to discourage them.

Keep in mind also that even before my posts there were MANY complaints about tasks and surveys, not just mine.

So yes a negative post with right choice of words CAN be helpful.

If a particular task is very unfair and is known to have bad corrections, should I just write instead "Hey I did this task it was GREAT" Lying about positives would only make things worse. If there were more positive things I would certainly post more positive. I am not the only one complaining about surveys and tasks though, so if I stop posting here, it will not automatically wipe all complaints about tasks and surveys.

I will do my part and be careful to keep my frustration in check, but I will not compromise my integrity - if something is bad I will say it, if something is good I will say it too - We can each disagree with one another's opinion and views, but personal attacks is unacceptable.

Complaints will rarely affect newbies anyway, people want to make money they will still TRY. There are tons of complaints about HYIP and programs online, yet people join them in flock to find out themselves and they get burned, that's human nature.

The highest denominator WINS. Whichever tips the scale, if it is negative, it is more negative, if it is positive, it will be more positive.

I will do my part in trying not to let frustration make me use wrong choice words, BUT if I am attacked personally and such I might respond in the same tone though.

and one last thing I have been accused by another user as saying "admin bad because of competition bad", this is entirely FALSE, I have nothing but praised CS and the site, I only mentioned about the competition and that some people have upper hand and we are not all on the same playing field, never once did I blame CS or say admin is bad, never - so yeah when things get personal they get ugly really fast. I am not a bad person, but when things personal people will usually see that bad side of me, I'm not like that normally though but we are all human and enough is enough, there is only so much you can take though, and as far as I know NOBODY here is perfect or a saint, almost everyone has at some point in their lives said stuff that were out of line or in haste.

Don't take it to heart. It's a forum with many different personalities and none us
are perfect.

I see your posts and overall you are positive and have posted many very helpful
topics. You're a great contributor and I would say a great asset to this forum.

Lately, your posts have been almost one after the other, complaints. I do very
much understand your frustration. I've read some foul language in your posts,
of late. I've read some of your posts where you are downright angry.

What I call negativity is when a member continuously post negativity. :mrgreen:
Members begin seeing one as a negative contributor that only complains. There
is nothing wrong with sharing what happen when you did a survey, etc.

Moderators get frustrated but none of the moderators should be calling names
and such. Moderators are simply members that volunteer at these forums. That's
it. We have not been knighted by the king or anything. We have not gone to
'moderator' school. So all of us moderators need to realize the same, that we
should be respectful to members and focus on helping new and old members alike.
Even if a moderator feels they don't like a poster here, we still should maintain our
respect for that member. And you know what, respect comes from inside and if
one does not respect another, that really does say something about ourselves.

So bottom line, do what you just said in your post. I know many of us really do
enjoy reading your knowledgable posts and topics.
