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.

there are employees active on this site.
i emailed both addresses and did manage to get a response, but as expected they completely ignored the questions i asked.

 

for fup's sake, how difficult is it to answer clear questions?

in China, very easy.

 

Dear ECC staff, by not aswering any of the questions posed, you show how little you understand the very people you want to attract to this site.

Is it any wonder that this site is now so rubbish?

Hi Admin, 
i thought a week is enough time to come up with some answers or a plan for this site.

anything you would like to share with us?

Any thoughts on how this site can be revitilised? 
Are you still going to allow all the spammers trying to get suckers to click on their business links with their bad English and poor attempts at linking their products to old threads posted years ago?

Does that mean you are going to allow a certain poster to recommece posting her self-absorbed verbal flatulance as a form of click bait?

Or, if i recall correctly, invite back a certain north-american basment occupant who had never been to China, but was an 'expert' on the country even though he had only 'chatted' online to 1 chinese 'woman' 
or will this site go another direction?

 

just asking.

Looks like resources are limited to answer pm's to
So let's make it a public mail.
This is what i sent in reply to a mail i got some time ago in response to a post on this tread.

Hi George

 hope there was an increase in the population with my posts over the last couple of weeks

I do have a couple of sugestions that might help boost the Forums appeal .

firstly a registed user could submit  photos of there own easily and after being scrutined by a moderator then cold be posted

also a pole with a fixed question could be put up from Ecc to gauge users response and help Ecc focus attenton for beniit.

both these fore mentioned  features are on Face Book and should be cost effective to addopt.

Anyway

good Luck to you

Cheers

Phil

Looks like typical Chinese way of doing business..they wouldn't have a clue about Customer service or what manners are.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
