I just got back from a camping trip and was going to post on the campground, when I found out that you have changed the process. For some reason I can't get a response back in the mail like it said I would. Why was the procedure for posting on a campground changed? This is not fun anymore. You're making it where alot of people won't even try to participate.

Sorry to say, I agree!

Well, some folks want it and some don't! It was implemented to filter out the campground owners and fake reviews. So the next step will be to shut down the website completely. It takes a lot of time to keep this resource running, so if we get enough complaints then the campgrounds will win (the bad ones) and RV Park Reviews will be no more!! sad.gif

Mr. or Ms. Webmaster: As someone whose name was illegally "appropriated" by some sicko to write an unflattering message to another participant, I strong support the controls you have instituted, as do most people. Those people who don't want to go to the "trouble" of meeting posting requirements are not woth worrying about. This is the finest RV information site on the internet. We have basically stopped using Woodalls and Trailer Life, and depend on you folks instead. I know that running this site is a lot of trouble and, if you ever get too frustrated, think about all of us folks who depend on your kindness and charity in running this site. And if you get really, really frustrated, start charging for membership so that you can be rewarded for your work--I'll be the first to join. Thank you.

Ditto!

As to Bud Wiser, try using your internet provider email instead of yahoo, hotmail, or any other mass free email site. That's what I did to finally get it to work.

wink.gif I am one of those than cannot receive the review form link to post. I have no idea what the problem is. It just means, I will not be able to review as in the past, but I sure will be reading the other reviews. I also have come to rely on this site for the most accurate information. I just hope their aren't too many of us that can't do reviews. I use an ISP regular e-mail system, and not a freebie. I sincerely hope you can keep the site up and running Mr. Webmaster, the only way you can win. Homer & Oyssey smile.gif

Well said Odessey. I was the original person that said that I could not post. After a LONG discussion it was determined that it was not my cookies or anything in my computer. The issues resolve around my ISP stating that the third party that hosts RV Park Reviews is on a list that sends junk emails.

This does NOT mean that RV Park Reviews is doing this with our address. It means that the 3rd party has done it for other groups. The webmaster and I have both tried to resolve the issue. It is still not solved.

This is my NUMBER ONE site on the internet. I like it, I read it, I refer others to the site, and I have posted about 15 reviews.

It is very unfortunate that a few bad apples have created this problem for those of us who appreciate and support this site.

We need to work together to solve the problem. I have found a way to post without the form being automatically sent to my address. This is not the long term solution to the problem.

Perhaps there is a method to register for the site with a password that would allow you to post until you cause a problem.

We have come up with an idea that may work for everybody! We have implemented a registration thru this forum. Only a registered member will be able to post a review. Once you are registered on the forum you will be able to "see" the forum with the form link for submitting a review. Any guests or non members will not be able to "see" this submit forum. - It is now up and running! wink.gif

Thank You! It works! Registered, forms come up automatically, Everything Looks Good!

Please do not give up on this site. It is great!

Participants need to cooperate and only submit valid reviews!

The new link works well. This is one way for the board to see who post reports. We are on the road now and have added a lot of new information to the board. I hope the information helps other RV people find a nice site.

Thank You, Thank You,
Motorhome Madness
Just wanted to clarify what John said about the board being able to see who posts. The only person(s) able to do that are the administrators (us). No user names or emails will appear with the reviews. And again our software will not permit your email addresses to be "harvested" from this website. wink.gif

biggrin.gif Thanks for a great job Mr. Webmaster. It is so easy to submit a review now.
I too use this site as my #1 guide in campgrounds.
Keep up the good work!!

Mr Webmaster, check your e-mail, I would like an answer directly to my e-mail address. Oyssesy mad.gif

How are you sending us an email? No email was received from you.

I also came home from a long trip, and discovered the difference when I tried to post reviews. I was confused for a minute, then just followed your instructions, and registered in about 30 seconds, got my email confirmation in minutes, and just posted some campground reviews from the last few weeks of our trip.

I like the new system, though I was disconcerted by the change for a couple minutes. No big deal. I've got a bunch more campgrounds to review, so th-th-that's all for now, folks!

I also agree with the new policy, as the person who was flamed by the idiot Beast Driver refers to.

biggrin.gif I love this site! For once, I have a place I can go to where I can get real, unbiased, information on a campground. The "regular" directories are so inaccurate at times that you really feel like you're just "rolling the dice" when you pick a place to stay. At least here, because you don't take advertising dollars from campgrounds, we can trust the information to be accurate, and because you date the posts, we also know how current it is. Please, believe me, many people depend on this site and appreciate all that you do! This is the first place I go when choosing a campground, and I will be posting reviews of every campground I visit from here on out! Keep up the good work! Christy Hicks
P.S., for what it's worth, I didn't have a bit of a problem registering and posting a review. Every step worked just as it should and instructions were simple and easy to follow.
