I am in no way trying to badmouth Cyprezz, that must be understood.

With that out of the way, I can begin:

Ok, let me ask you all a question you should know. Who is Cyprezz? Cyprezz is that famous site admin, the cyborg we all hope to get a sub from one day. He is the man who made PMC, and allows us to be a community.

But, as I was browsing through the blogs today, i saw yet another "PMC is in a bad state blog", y'know complaining about the lack of good people and too many bad trolls on PMC. I thought to myself "Someone should really try and fix it".

Then I realized, there is Cyprezz. He has (probably) seen the countless blogs about fixing PMC, and yet I have seen no change. I'm not saying he is a bad admin, at all, I think Cyprezz is great for inventing PMC, and has made it a great website. All I wanna know is, "Cyprezz, you see us complaining, are you going to do something?"

Cyprezz must notice the major amount of stolen skins and useless blogs, but I don't see it being changed. Frankly, I don't care if anything is changed, I would just like to know that Cyprezz hears us and cares about us. As site admin, he should tell us what he thinks, if he will change anything, and if he needs ideas. (And if Cyprezz needs ideas it is not bad, he is a human like us, he doesn't have to be perfect)

Personally, I feel the solution is to have more mods. Think about it, the mods say they get to much work to take care of all the flags they get each day, and that is perfectly understandable. BUT... if there were more mods, less work for each mod, and a more productive way of getting rid of stolen things.

Alright, sorta lost topic there. Basically, Cyprezz is the site admin, he is the one who controls PMC. All I wanna know is what he thinks of PMC right now, and I want to hear his voice, and see if he is going to do anything, and if he is not, that is his choice! (Its his website, right?)

So.... Cyprezz, where are you?

If he is the creator of PMC I would say he is flooded with the amount of things on his to do list. The website has a very good uptime considering the amount of users and submissions on it so whatever he's doing, he's doing a damn good job, and I mean that in the very least ass licking way as I have no idea who he is.
I just know this is good website and someone is to thank for it

But is it to much to ask that he tell us what he is doing to make the website better since so many people are complaining? (and as you said, probably right to him)

I just want him to tell us his plans, so we know, and we are not left in the dark. And if he is not doing anything or doesn't want to be, that is fine too. I just want to hear from him more, thats all.

Is there an IRC or even twitter account where you can contact him?

This is so whiney!!
It boils down to: not your problem, he'll get round to it when he does, IF he does, and if you don't like it feel free to go make your own site. Lord knows how complicated it is just keeping this damned site working as it, let alone adding all these new features people want.
More mods? Even though there are dozens of blogs complaining there are too many mods now? And even more complaining there aren't enough!! Why not just realise no matter what there will be someone who complains, so sod it and do what you want? That's what I'd do. You're luck if Cyprezz hasn't got to that point yet.

So let me get this straight... you get proved wrong in a mature and debate fashion, so you remove all other comments instead of being mature and admitting you were wrong?

well, your definitely the winner.

Hey, I didn't remove anything genius. I can't remove other people's comments, if I removed them then my ORIGINAL comment would be gone as well.

Ok sorry (I was awfully cold there, sorry), but I didn't remove my comment. Must be a glitch in the site or something. Anyway, I don't think I am whining. I am not telling Cyprezz to make the site some perfect utopia or anything. I just want to hear from him more often. He is our site admin, right? Is it such a bad things to want to hear what he thinks of situations going on all throughout the site? I am not asking him to do anything major, just let us know what he is doing once in a while in stead of leaving us in the dark.

Problem is you're faced with either:
  • He comments on things ON the site, in which case he wastes loads of his own time doing that OR
  • He writes something like an update blog, which means either he wastes loads of time doing that, or had people complain when he doesn't include something.
Think of him wanting to add, say, a new filter for skins that filters out crap (magically, I don't know...). He can't "just do it", so he has to make something that'll do it form him. If he tells everyone that's what he's doing, and then there's a problem and it doesn't work, everyone is disappointed. If he does it, and it doesn't work, nobody will know or get annoyed. If he does it and it DOES work, he can announce it and all is good.

NOT keeping a running commentary saves him time, and us grievance.

I see your point, but think about it, is there any system in the world thats perfect? No. In a way, I just want to hear from him saying he knows about the problems. Just a reassurance that all these complaints are being heard and not putting great minds to wasteful ideas.

I just want to know that he is still out there really, and wants PMC to get better.His last public blog was 6 months ago (pretty sure, at least) Can't he tell us what he did to improve the site in all that time?

But I am beginning to see your point much better, although I still don't believe this is whiny.

I'm sure that he cares about us, he works very hard to keep the site running. There are definitely things they have added recently though! :D You have to remember though he's constantly flooded with complaints, just as mods are with reports. Here is an example that the people of pmc are being heard: A while way back, I was having a problem with someone constantly harassing and cyber bullying me for about a month straight through comments/messages, and later came back again to do the same thing. I went to a mod about the situation and about implementing a block user option(which has been on their to do list even before this), the said person was taken care of. It has been a while since then, but they have recently added the wonderful Ignore list option(will block users on the list from commenting on your submissions/sending messages) when you go to "my account," then just add users to the list. He may not always be on stage, but he's in the back room making sure the show will go on! ;P I'm sure they hear us, it just might take some time though. We all just have to be more understanding, and patient, and remember that he is only one cyborg. :3 Those are just my thoughts on it, sorry for the super long comment! XD

I never said he doesn't care about us. And yes, you make some good points. All I really want is to hear from Cyprezz and know what he thinks about everything.

Well Cyprezz has a lot of things on his agenda, so all our complaints are piling up like the submission reports. He does his job and probably see's our complaints, but he is also probably working on more important changes to the website. Plus, he can't just go *poof* and fix it overnight. So the best solution for your problem is patience, Cyprezz is a busy cyborg, and you will see the changes in due time.



That or Cyprezz is just hiding in that bush over there from all the people pressuring him to change things NOW.



I think it is most likely option B.

I know it is hard to fix it, I just want to hear what he is doing and hear from him.
