It is dead here.  What happened to everyone?

Apr 26, 2010 9:19 pm

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz... Everybody left I guess. The only ones here now were not invited to move or Jones guys that can only get on here during biz hours. It seems like posts are waaayyyyyy down now.

yeah but we're clicking on the ads!

Ask the people that run this place...

Us Jones guys used to be able to sporadically get onto the other site, but someone in HQ must have been monitoring it and they shut it down tight.   Consequently, if I feel the need to waste some time, it has to be here or www.armorgames.com. 

I could get to their site on my phone, but I'd rather not have to have surgery on my carpel tunnels because I want to participate in a forum.

Can Jones guys bring a Netbook or laptop with a Myfi card to the office?

We're not supposed to.  If you do, you just have to register it with Compliance.

With all due respect.  Why go to the office if you are not going to work?  Stay at home.  It has to be more comfortable than your office.  From a partnership perspective, 2 hours in the office working is more productive than 8 hours in the office doing nothing.  The minute I am not working I walk out the door.  Unfortunately it is usually about 6:00 at night.

I get most of my business done in a 2 hour period, but I often stay in the office to be available for clients should they need me.  That time isn't productive, so I do other things.

I'd rather be here and be bored than be gone and have a client ask why I'm never in the office.

I'm with you there.  A lot of clients complain that there former brokers were "never around" or they were "in retirement mode", or they always had to talk to the junior broker or assistant.  Having said that, I always take advantage of the freedom to come and go when I need to do things.  But I feel what we do is a service, and part of that service is being available for client calls.  Although ytrewq did not get to where he is by providing poor client service, so there are obviously ways around it.

Why is this forum threatened by the "other" site?   Makes no sense.

because they know the new layout is not popular and the main traffic has left for the retro look at the OS...

The other site sucks.. Nothing but posting of porn pictures and different advisors outing eachother... Check it out today.. There looks to be a mutiny(spelling?). Wouldn't be surprised if they flocked back over here...

Squash, you can chalk up 99.9% of the problems on that forum to one individual who has been banned here.  There are several participants who post both places, but if they feel anything like I do, their patience is wearing thin with Biofreeze, much as their patience has worn thin with the format here.  Too bad the perfect forum doesn't exist.

May 4, 2010 12:09 pm

Like all forums, the conversation always falls off a cliff, because someone trys to be(clever,smart, funny, insult, stupid, annoying).... I looked through the threads and some of them seemed to be good, but then there were 8 pages of people insulting each other..

Format here is weird, and the site is still very slow, but the professionalism is quite a bit higher..

[/quote]you must live a sheltered life if you think that is porn

the outing is true and a shame

double post please delete

What is funny is that the only "outing" that happened today was on this site, not the other.  Yes Bio got his panties in a wad, but no one got outed over there.
