People openly review companies here and now. Somehow, despite this, the forum exists and advertisers aren't yanking their ads -- probably because those ads are seen by lots of people. My suggestion is to create a new board for this customer feedback so that both the good and bad feedback remains. As I have said, other industries do it. Just one example would be bowling, where several of the biggest bowling websites offer boards for people to post their experiences with online bowling ball sellers. Amazingly, most of the reviews are good, while the bad reviews allow customers the information to decide for themselves. Further, such a forum allows online suppliers the opportunity to respond directly and publicly -- also a good thing.
How long would the HAUNTWORLD forum last without the financial support of those prop companies?
I agree that someone should start a no-ads, non-biased website where people would be free to openly review prop companies, haunts, etc.
This forum just isn't it.
