    Default Sideshow Forrum getting bad rep.

    Sideshow Freaks getting bad reviews is complete bull!
    I been a member of the forrum a little while about 5 years or so and have nothing but Positive things to say about this place. I met a lot of Great Collectors and its where i found my LOVE of 1/6 figure's and ditched my 3/4 figure's. I found the Amazing ART and LOVE we Share in POP CULTURE , Movie's , Comic's and Music n Art of it all. I Feel Highly connected to other Fans that share same Love to Qoute movie's and share fun idea's on how to display to where to buy and custom creation's of Great Artists who go out of thier way to pick up make items the big company's forget to include to Movie props. I know we all dont all get along because we have a ton of passion for our hobby's in here ,but I LOVE how Fans pay so much attention to the little details to make it Perfect. Anyway i just think this place is AMAZING FORRUM and Thank DarkLORD Dave for this Sanctuary to us Fans to come here everyday and share our love of the hobby. I never would've met all these other collectors from all over the world if had not found this place and again feel very greatfull for this place. Again Thank you Sideshow Freaks you Rock!!!

    I hear from Time to Time some collectors from other Facebook groups downing the site. Example like today i Woke to BudgetStark saying was not part of the forrum because of bad experience from some thing i dont know why ,but i hear it from some once in a while and just thought its time to Stand up address the b.s issue. This place is Amazing for reviews to customs to great collectors trading and sharing news of new movie's comics new release's. I have nothing but LOVE for this site and very greatfull to share in the hobbys we share.

    This is a good site but make no mistake, it is extremely catty. Look how many legit forum members have bailed...Budget Stark, Sideshow reps (and other independent companies) that use to post here...countless sixth scale artists (some legends).. The admin/mods allow forum members to dog the stars of the industry but, hey, we can't disrespect someone's inflated scalper prices in the bst thread...

    Just some of the reasons this site is seen as the Wal-Mart of sixth scale forums...

    I love this place, to be honest. I think negativity overall has increased over the years, but honestly, that's how it is in many places. I was literally just reading another thread here similar to this one, and someone there said (in so many words) all of this competition among companies brings it out in collectors. People have more room to be choosy and with that, comes the criticism (and in many cases, the negativity). And I tend to agree. That's just my assessment, whether true or not.

    Like I said though, this has been my 'home' for a long time. I love this place. You may need some 'thicker' skin in various threads, but I try to brush it off. I get all of my collectible news here - heck, even my movie news.

    I just wanted to share the LOVE back to this Amazing site i have always enjoyed. I feel like forrum's are kinda hidden gems better then FB bragging pics. Hey check out what arrived or see how much money i can spend, instead feel more passion here posting pics discussing films , comics life death etc...What ever idk what i want out of this thread other just give back love sharing of the hobby on a great Site. Again thank you Dave i would feel a loss if this place ever Vanished god forbid it.

    Meh, this site deserves pretty much all the bad press it gets.

    This site is cossy but sometimes some members just annoying. Facebook otherwise is an absolute hellhole nowaday.

    Just look how many people complaints and bashing like madman on HT facebook pages. Just crazy... That's make this site looks like an intellectual haven and open up for any discussion without some people bashing your head in.

    Well, it looks like BudgetStark's video omitted half the truth. There was a time where all he does here was creating new threads with his name slapped on it. There would be new threads such as "Budget Stark: First Look Iron Man Figure" despite already having clear thread designated to said figure. He was less about participating in discussions and more about plugging his own Youtube channel.

    Now don't get me wrong- I'm pretty sure the mods might have said that there's nothing wrong with that, but eventually a lot of members started to get irritated since he was clogging the forums- it comes off as cheap advertising and when confronted, his reasoning was something along the lines that he creates new threads because the dedicated threads moves so fast that his content gets buried. Again, not verbatim, since I don't recall much.

    I believe that if you have good intentions, post your content on the relevant thread and it will get the attention it deserves. A good link will always get brought forward to the next page even months after it has sunk to 78 prior pages. I also believe a good Youtuber will always enable the "Like/Dislike" feature so that people can gauge the content without having to watch the video, something that BudgetStark has disabled.

    I understand the bad rep.

    I stay here because of the latest news and because of some people il Ike and respect, but that's about it.

    I'm fed up with the disappearing posts or thread.

    I'm fed up with people jumping at each other's throat for nothing and being unable to discuss anything civilly.

    I'm fed up with the customs section that's become a harbor for greedy people taking advantage of others.

    I'm fed up with collectors that just see collecting as an investment and only think about the resell value.

    That board has become the shadow of what it should be and what it used to be: a place for friends and sharing for a great hobby, a place where collectors help each other's and not where they prey on each other.

    Sadly, becoming huge is what it does. It's a reflection of our world, and since our world isn't such a good place, it's no wonder that SSF has lost its luster...
