Why did you join the forum ?

I thought it would be interesting to take a snapshot of why customers have signed up to post here.
My first posts were to put up my experience switching from BeThere to Plusnet and thankfully it went very smoothly. I know a lot of negativity is shown by customers on this forum but the fact that support forums usually attract customers who have had problems explains this.

Re: Why did you join the forum ?

After a brief review of the comments I realised many people on here had the wrong opinions. Clearly they were in need of my greater knowledge and wisdom. So I joined.  Wink

Re: Why did you join the forum ?

Anytime I have asked for advice there has always been a useful response (s)
Some of the links posted by others have been of interest to me.
Opinions expressed in some posts I have not agreed with but tried to think why that person was expressing that opinion.
So those are a few reason's that come to mind.
Might have to do my own survey as I would be interested to know how much time per day forum members log on to this site.

Re: Why did you join the forum ?

Usually use TBB for most of my advice and that is where I first contacted the PN rep about moving. I came to the forum when she said she was leaving the support role, just to keep on track of the order process. Never used the PN forums from any of my previous accounts with PN affiliated companies, but bit the bullet this time.

The one post wonders who come one, have a right go then refuse to come back and try the things suggested ?

Actually I am! Yes i wanted a rant Wink
We signed up, i expected to be able to use filesharing and then couldn't - i was lucky to get 300bytes per second - slower than dialup and yes i was livid! Whats the point of paying for a fast connection if you only get faster http traffic? - html downloads pretty fast anyway it was only the images / flash that was slowed down by dialup speed.
I've since given up on file sharing.. mainly thanks to plusnet and that was actually a bit of a blessing in disguise seeing as they then gave all the file sharers details to ACS law and let lots of people get harassed. How PN ever got away with that is beyond me. Anyhow thanks to their horrific traffic throttling of the time i wasn't amongst those users. Things really do work in strange ways sometimes..
Anyhow when it comes to music these days its easier to listen to it on video sites. I think we all know that those are also 'keeper friendly' using the http protocol  Wink
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Why did you join the forum ?

When I joined PN it seemed logical to have a look at the forums and I've been looking ever since Wink

Re: Why did you join the forum ?

I can't remember but it was probably when Plusnet on TBB went into meltdown
Checking and it was a bit simpler than that
I joined TBB  in January 2005 and Plusnet in June 2007 when the new Forums went live
