  • Complaints department


    "Share and Enjoy" is, of course, the company motto of the hugely successful Poker School Online Complaints Division, which now covers the major land masses of three medium sized planets and is the only part of the School to have shown a consistent profit in recent years.

    The motto stands - or rather stood - in three mile high illuminated letters near the Complaints Department spaceport on the Isle of Gain - "Share and Enjoy". Unfortunately its weight was such that shortly after it was erected, the ground beneath the letters caved in and they dropped for nearly half their length through the underground offices of many talented young complaints executives - now deceased. The protruding upper halves of the letters now appear, in the local language, to read "Go stick your head in a pig", and are no longer illuminated, except at times of special celebration.

    Now on to the complaints:

    1) A bit slow, isn't it.
    I don't know if it's the connection or the server running the VBulletin, but a lot of the time this is really slow. It's got slightly better in recent days, but for this day and age, software response time still leaves quite a bit to be desired.

    2) Blogs
    The VBulletin blog platform is bad enough as it is, especially as formatting goes. Combine that with pre-approval of blogs, it becomes pretty much useless.
    We don't have pre-approval of forum posts, where the formatting actually (sort of) works, why blogs?

    3) A personal complaint
    So PSO wants my voice (for foreign). Cool. I speak lots of foreign.
    So I send a mail to the provided address, stating which languages I could do, carefully explaining
    pros and cons of my abilities, and politely asking to know more about the deal to further assess possibilities.
    Did I get (after a week) an answer, even to say, sorry, not interested for the moment? You guessed

    Mind you, I like the place, it's free, I'm not bitching, I hope the criticism can be constructive.

        No inconvenience really.
        I do wish you' re-think the blog pre-approval policy, it just doesn't fit the platform IMO.
