Q: What has happened to ECC?

the SPAMMERs seem to have taken over, so i am not surprised that this site has gone down the tubes.

Is there zero Administration?

Even the Articles on the home page are trite and hackneyed, similar to many such essays i read in China.

the jobs seem to be the same shady opportunities that have the same low salaries and don't even offer a visa.

15,000 a month for a 'Senior Consultant' role in a Finance company????

 

This used to be a vibrant site and it is sad in its passing.

and i hope all my friends here have gone on to better things.

I check in way less than I used to and when I do there's usually nothing new or interesting happening so I just lose interest in it until I think to check in again. I assume it's the same with other users.

 

The good old days of interesting debates, interesting personalities and online fights are long gone. Well, nothing is forever I suppose....

 

Cheers

I will be packing up and leaving this summer, after teaching middle school to college, I just don't want my daughter exposed to excessive homework and a stressful childhood. I have regrets that once she gets to an American school, she will hear profanity, something she would not get exposed to here, but making her attend classes and homework like a sweatshop I think is the worse of two evils.

If it weren't for the five people who check in regularly here, this site would stop getting it's advertising checks. So really they should be paying us.

previously i have challenged ECC to respond to any issues that posters have, but surprise surprise, tumbleweeds are in evidence.

 

Any half-way decent website would communicate with posters, but could it be that Chinese people have very little insight into keeping people engaged.

 

To be honest, without a serious make-over this site is dead - but then it has been on life-support for the last couple of years.

Some of the reasons we don't hear from many of top users anymore could be that some of them are married but don't want their children in this education sytem so went back to their home country. Another reason could be they were denied the proper visa because they are over 60. Like there are not to many old people who want to work in Shaanxi. Or maybe they just found a better paying job and took advantage of their experience in China to get higher pay and better living conditions.

I challenge whoever it is that is left in charge of the site to respond, or do you not have the English or the b***s for a direct answer.

 

Why has no-one done anything to revitilise this site over he years?

Why have sucessive Admins refuesed to engage with legitimate quesions the users have?

- is it that you are unable to due to lack of English ? (this would explain the proifieration of spammers)
 - is it becuase you are avoiding what you perceive as 'confrontation' with foreigners and their direct questions (a common failing amongst Chinese)

 - is it because you just don't care about this site at all?

 

Don't you worry, I have patience.

Btw, I haven't been logged in for past 2+ years.

They have new software ... once, you want to cash out your pints, i.e. redeem, they deduct 4 points for every calendar day you weren't logged. I think. 

 Be careful! In the end, you might owe them few raincoasts and halı -s (carpets).

Lol ...they harmonized the guys dating post ....was the most interesting question since this one was posted.
Another example of moronic decision making

Stiggs:

Yep, got rid of a fun post that was China related and another one about contract stuff that were both generating answers and left the post by the first question new user advertising weed and hard drugs there. 

 

Maybe those conversations took a turn for the worse when I was logged off or something but on the face of it that just makes no sense at all to me.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
