Theme parkreview?

Seems whenever I mention this site, I get the tape put over my mouth.

I mean, I'm not a big fan, but come on. That kinda censorship is so ... I dunno. I mean, come on it's freakin America. and it's not 1984.

Things are getting very scary...

"It's freakin' America"? Since when did constitutional rights apply to the World Wide Web?

I believe Jeff does it because the webmaster over there used to spam this site.

A funny thing I should mention. I was banned from TPR because another member sent me incriminating photographs of past criminal activity via PM in reference to the webmaster, and because I didn't report it to the webmaster, he banned me for being an accomplice. Ha.

Censorship? Sorry, is this a government-run website? Last I checked it wasn't. You are free to look at the other website as much as you want to, just as I am if I want.

You see, Jeff is providing information and a place to communicate for readers of CoasterBuzz, not that other site. I hope that makes sense to you.

Ok ok... the whole 'im special, exclusive' thing seems to run rampant around here. I mean, it's all about Cedar Fair and Six Flags.

Do whatever you want, but it's just plain lame. Maybe I'm just too much of a Hippie.

I'm not a big fan of TPR for various reasons, but still enjoy some of their pics and vids.

I'm not keen on being a member of special clubs though.

Well, I know they did some crappy stuff, and people did crappy things.

Have any of you ever done anything 'wrong'? Were you forgiven? Were you made to PAY or be punished for all those things?

I know, it's no love-in, but come on!

My personal messages on this site are being edited... that's not cool. And I've payed for a couple years to support the site.

Yes, call me clueless, I finally read the rules. Just a little baffled, upset and 'scared'. Clockwork Orange, Futureworld, THX 1138, 1984, seem too familiar.

What exactly was your intention with this thread? In my opinion, it appears to be more of an attempt to start trouble than to find a resolution.

If this is such a serious problem for you, and you feel you have been wronged, it may be a better idea to contact Jeff, or one of the moderators, directly.

I'm not sure much good can come from this thread.

Well I hear ya, I'm just upset. I mean, come on. That's way strongarm, to edit my personal messages.

Hell no, the last thing I need is trouble. But I'm all for sticking up for what I think it the right thing.

I'm sure all the 'haves' will dispute me of course....

Six Flags and Cedar Fair I guess are the most interesting topics. Anyways, soon this topic will be locked or deleted for your FYI.

RIDE ON!

No, I get ya J7, The whole PTC rules, Intamin are gods and Buzz is the best mentality is everything I hate about this hobby.

I personally love Gerstlauer (All their products) NAD, Vekoma ect.

But still, Bragging about another website on Jeffs is UNCOOL. It's not a gag but why even bring it up?

Keep kickin and discuss what you can here.

Chuck, who's changed many a mind when it comes to AMUSEMENT PARKS EXPERIENCE! it's not all about a coaster, A club or a certain park. It's about HAVING FUN!

Pagoda Gift Shop's avatar Wowza, that got extreme.

I'm pretty sure the reason for the censorship is simply to maintain good relationships with parks, not simply for censorship sake. Things have happened in the past, and if Jeff thinks it will keep the club in good standing with the parks, that's a pretty good reason.

JG73, from the Terms of Service which you didn't read originally in the third paragraph it says this: POP World Media, LLC reserves the right to delete any message for any or no reason at all.

Although in your case your message was edited, it's the same scenario. I just read through the TOS again, and it takes all of five-minutes. It's not like most software licenses that take an hour or more to read, and make little sense because of all the lawyer talk.

There aren't many websites that don't have some kind of agreement that you need to sign-up for. When I signed-up for eBay and PayPal recently, both of those sites had rules and regulations I had to read through.

For instance, the PayPal agreement was twenty-six pages long! Did I read through the whole thing and print it out? Absolutely.

It's Coasterbuzz's competition. What do you expect? They don't want you to discuss anything that has to do with another website that they are in competition with. They don't want people going to those forums, and not posting here. Think about it, it's like the same thing.

It's not like a specific site like I Love Six Flags Great Adventure (Made up site), but rather general like this site.

Seriously why would anyone want to mention Theme Park Revenue anyway? It's not like there is anything on there that is worth going to that site in the first place -- not to mention the SPAM from Douchey McDouchehead EW.

Lord Gonchar's avatar Ok, so Jeff is feeling pretty under the weather from what I understand, so I guess it's my duty to take care of the ugly tonight. :)

TPR has been filtered from this site for as long as I can remember (and this spring will be 7 years for me - I'm a lifer :) ).

It has nothing to do with competition or disrespect or whatever weird drama anyone wants to create.

I'm putting words in Jeff's mouth here and I'm sure he'll come along and clear it up if I'm off base, but it's a simple as past actions that the folks over there have taken that Jeff doesn't want to be associated with - along with a pretty steady barrage of spamming over the years.

Simple as that. It's just something Jeff feels he doesn't want to be associated with.

Even more simple - if you don't like it, leave. (and preferrably delete your account on the way out to keep things nice and neat :) )
