    As the OP of the "Delete This Stern" thread last year I would like to be one of the first to thank Stern for listening and start using Facebook as it was intended. They are actively responding to all post and not deleting them. Kudos Stern for the proactive Facebook usage and the new code coming out for most of your machines. You have made a new fan out of me!

    #2 5 years ago

    Can I get back on?
    I was deleted about 2 years ago.

    Glad to hear this though

    #3 5 years ago

    It does seem that they got the message.
    Much to the chagrin I'm sure of everybody that just wanted to leave them alone and let them delete valid customer questions.
    Happy camper here.
    Way to go Stern. Thanks for listening.

    Not true, I saw a bunch of posts on their Nellie video get deleted

    Stern has been making some strides in the right direction. Cool that you noticed.

    Expect more in the future. It can't all change in a day, but steady improvements.

    Did you take the job managing the FB account like you had stated prior? Because if you did you owe it to pinside to state you are now the man behind the page.

    #7 5 years ago

    I am wondering if previous bans will be lifted. I was banned when I asked if they were going to update code on TF...

    Some of them should be deleted, frankly. Stern's Facebook page doesn't need to host every nasty comment someone feels like leaving.

    agree

    I don't see how he's obligated to do anything. If Stern is doing better at managing their page, its good news for everyone that posts there.

    Because he told me he was considering taken the job of their fb pr person. If he did indeed take it I think he owes it to the community of pinside to let us know he is handling shit. Would be strange if he kept it secret from us. Double sided coin and all.

    I never stated that, and if you can quote me on it that would be great.

    I am not behind the Stern facebook page. I would like to be, at least in part, and that may happen down the road.

    I can tell you with certainty, that Jody exclusively manages the page as of 3/20/15. As Stern continues to grow and expand, as they have rapidly been doing, it would not be surprising for Stern to bring in additional help as Jody's plate gets more and more filled with tasks.

    Jared do I have to post the private message I will.

    DO NOT share private messages.

    Quoting private messages on Pinside is a rule violation.

    Please PM me because I sincerely do not remember saying that, and if I had, it would not have been out loud in public. Apparently I didn't.

    All the same, the recent positive swing on Stern's facebook is a decision all their own. Good on them.

    So I tell the truth and I get a warning. WOW pinside has really lost it. I am on the phone with police in MI trying to help people get refunds for predator and this happens.

    Jared asked me to quote him and I did and I get slapped for it.

    Quoted from Aurich:

    Yes. We all agree with that.
    But they are at least discussing Whoa Nellie concerns now.
    Huge step in the right direction

    #20 5 years ago

    Do we really need "full disclosure" laws here? We are a forum, probably 80% of what is posted here is personal opinion or conjecture. This is not a professional or public company that requires us to declare conflicts of interest . If Jared works for anyone-good on him. If he spreads rumors, so be it. Most of us are grown up enough to form our opinions, ignore things we don't like, and sort through the nonsense.
    I also say well done Stern for a good change of direction. It's their website, and they can delete what they want-they are running a business.

    And my full disclosure is I won BWM , JJP, DE and Stern machines

    #21 5 years ago

    I was banned several years ago.
    I contacted them and kindly asked to be unbanned and apologized for being a penis on their facebook. When they kept asking "Are you and autobot or decepticon?" I kept saying I'm a Tin Man.
    They immediately lifted my ban and all has been well ever since.
    Once you realize, it is the front of their company in this new world, I can understand where anything more than moderate criticism gets you banned from speaking.
    There's forums to bitch about things and you can always press the contact link on the webpage to voice your concerns. Public facebook posts aren't always the best way to make a point.

    I beg to differ. They started to see the writing on the wall and took their heads out of their ass

    #23 5 years ago

    Doesn't matter who is doing it as far as I'm concerned. I'm just glad it's getting done. It was such a breath of fresh air to see them interacting with their customers and fans. He handled himself well when grilled about whoa Nellie and they left the comment up. I'm very impressed. I agreed in my original thread that there will always be terrible things said that need to be removed. Stern seems to have made strides recently and I can't do anything right now but applaud them for it.

    #24 5 years ago

    I am glad too. I just didnt want someone to maybe put ona disguise and double post. I mean Nothing against Jared is he great. I just didnt want the chance of like someone here pretending to NOT be a Stern employee. Turns out He is not. I just wanted to know if he took the job. Its all good in the hood.

    No prob, I know you didn't mean anything by it. I appreciate the kind words. I would be honest with you, and there is no agreement or deal in place with me and stern for social media at this time.

    pretty classless on the moderators part to give you a ban. when an individual specifically tells you to quote them, said message is no longer private. I have said it before and I'll say it again here now. most of the moderators are fantastic; a few have no business being moderators. regardless of what pinside rules are when someone instigates by insisting that a private message become public, then said message is no longer private.

    You wanna help? Get ColorDmd TWD done!! I know you've been doing Smartdmd, but I already have colordmd's in my pins!

    #28 5 years ago

    thanks for the thumbs up guys. Jared basically demanded to be quoted. when Devilstuner did, Jared's friend Marcus/xerico (moderator) reprimanded him. when I commented on that Marcus (xerico) (jered's friend) reprimanded me... go figure. sometimes it's nice to have friends.
