76 things to remember about me and CoasterBuzz

Monday, March 19, 2001 8:01 AM
I came across something that is everything I feel about CoasterBuzz, and thought I'd share it with you. It's a fabulous dose of perspective for people who complain about the way we run the site or never gave much thought to what goes on beyond the server.

Anyone out there who has ever run a site, even the slightest bit popular, knows where this is coming from.

Read it. Think about it.

Words of wisdom. I can identify with this even with my piddling little website.

Jeff, I can't say how much I like this site. Where else can you find up-to-the-minute coaster news. Those other sites update weekly, but CoasterBuzz is constantly updated. I spend way too much time on this site (I'm in school right now waiting for the bell to ring so I can go home), and I gotta say I love every minute of it. Whenever you need to hear somebody say how great this site is like when you have repeat Cedar Point rumor topics, and complaining about Nazi moderators, send me an IM, I'd be happy to go on about how much I like this site.

Okay, I'll shut up now.

That goes double for Jeff. He runs two great sites. The updates here, as well as over at GTTP have been more than enough to have the greatest off-season of my life. I'm sure the season will be even better so I gonna staple myself in this train.

Let me add my voice. Coasterbuzz is one of two sites I visit everyday (the other is the New York Times). Coasterbuzz is fun, informative, well designed, easy to use, a valuable resource, I cannot imagine having the patience to put something like this together and keep it going. Jeff and everyone else involved with Coasterbuzz deserve a standing ovation!

Don't forget to thank the moderators who keep the forums relatively crap free on a volunteer basis. Seeing as how I have somewhat of a life, I can't watch the site 24/7, but with at least one mod reading at various points in the day it seems, things stay smooth and tangy.

Meet the mods (and my hoochie) here:

I completely agree with everything their, especially with "Negative feedback is not the same as constructive criticism." I always hate it when people critisize what people do when they should have no business anyways, I know from experience.

Jeff, Keep up the great work (along with the awesome moderators, who are NOT to be forgoton)and I love you all too :)

After reading the information on our moderators, it's perfectly clear that Coasters sometime take a second seat to beer. What does everyone think?

We DO have some classy people that run this site and keep it working at the highest level...this is the reason that 1) it's the best coaster site on the web and 2) it's the best coaster site on the web.

If I may...can I ask when is our first meeting time and place for the season. I'll bring the case of chilled (31 degrees, that is...)Killian's or LaBatt. My treat!

Thanks Jeff and everyone who makes this site run smoothly. This is pretty much the only reason I use the Internet.

Thankyou Coasterbuzz team! Your efforts and dedication have not gone unnoticed by us clods out here. It is nice to come to a coaster chat area that does not have to deal with morons who are just there to cause arguments. *cough*RRC*cough*

Well, considering that every time someone even mentions alcohol to me I feel nauseous, (long story which I won't go into here), I really see no reason to mention it on a coaster website.

Besides that, Jeff, you and your team definitely are at the heart of the greatest coaster site in existence, and for that I owe you all a big thanks. Thanks guys for making this site what it is.

What about MooreOns, WildOne???? :)

Seriously, kudos to Jeff and the mods for the way they run the site. There is no other discussion site on the internet which runs as smoothly as Coasterbuzz!!!

Hey, I bought a new house today. Yea for me!
