  • Page discrimination?

    Mr Strahan,

    It recently came to my attention that when I log onto your site, I am not given access to all of the pages available to others. Alaska game management, fisheries management and global discussions are nonexistent for me. What gives?

      Very good question!

      Are you telling us that people who don't live in Alaska can not EVEN SEE the game management and fisheries management forums....

      I have no clue why a new member couldn't post in these forums BUT its really weird you can not even see um....maybe there is something wrong with your browser and your 'problem' is not the same for all nonresidents and new members?

      Ummm....looking forward to hear from others who can not see these important forums and what the official explanation from Strahan is.

        His site

        Its his site, he should be able to do what he wants. Some real good sites are that way like supercubs.org and others. Im not saying his is in the same catagory, but its his choice to turn people around. Im sure it had nothing to do with you Don.

          Frankly! I find this an odd post. Shouldn't this be an email to Mike, not a post on this forum.
          If the answer you recieved was something worth raising the awareness to the broader aduience, than MAYBE a post, but you should at least try and work it directly with the person, before making it a broad discussion topic.
          Even if you do have good intentions, it would not appears so!

            I don't see the post as odd but I find the issue raised by the OP as odd.

            IMO it is a reasonable question and one that should be answered in the light of day.

            It the OP has a browser problem everyone should be alerted and if the owner of the website is keeping new members and nonresidents from reading what is going on with Alaska game or fisheries management then we should all know why.

            If it takes X posts to participate then these forums should be included. New members want to know; understand, Alaska's management system and probably have reasonable questions. imo

              My intentions Cusackla were to find out why I'm being censored from part of the site. If censoring some people from parts of this or any other public forum is standard practice, I think it is of great interest to everyone.

              If I don't have access because I just don't have enough posts, then so be it. I find that peculiar, but this is a privately owned site, and it can do as it pleases. It just makes this site a whole lot less interesting and relevant.

              By the way, this thread was moved to a section that I don't have access to. Talk about irony.

                Don,

                There is a minimum number of posts requirement as well as a 30 day (I think...) minimum as well. This was enacted to keep anti hunting/fishing/trapping folks from coming in and causing a ruckus with new accounts. If you want access to the other forums early, you can send Brian M a PM explaining your situation and he can change your status so you have access to all forums.

                  Mulligan....what is your post count and join dates? Obviously someone read your post and decided to move it.

                    My Point

                    All good responses, but I still stick to my Point, that you should contact the person 1st and rasie the awareness 2nd.
                    I am not a Big Fan of Mr Strahan, in fact we have dissagreed on several issues, but fair is fair. And personally I think it is fair to ask 1st and post 2nd.

                      Louis,

                      I'm not looking to make a big deal out of this. I just wanted to understand a site I enjoy visiting and reading.

                        Don,

                        I just checked your account and don't find any bans or restrictions..... I'm not sure why you are not seeing all the forums. :confused:

                        We have had a couple of software updates/changes recently that have introduced some new issues so maybe you got lost in the software.

                        Send Brian M a PM explaining the problem and he can reset your account if necessary.

                            I just checked and it has been fixed for me. The topics that were nonexistent before, are now there. I appreciate whoever fixed it.

                            I hope others are getting full access, because it took me 2 years to figure out I was missing some interesting conversations.

                              How many other people need this problem 'fixed'?

                              That's what it sounded to me like in the OP which is kind of alarming.

                              Responsible hosting of a hunting forum should include 'management'. EVERYONE should at least be able to 'read' these forums?

                              So, I'm still not clear how many people are out there who don't see the management forums.

                              Maybe the 'outdoorswithdon' issue is a bigger issue.

                              Maybe that's why there seems to not be a very broad base of interaction on the management forums.

                              Often times I see 20/30 people are viewing the hunting forums and seldom observe more than 1 or 2 viewing the management forums.

                              It seems to me that many people interested in hunting would also be interested in managing? :confused:
