What does it take to get a response from a complaint on a posting? Is there some time frame involved where there is a least an acknowledgement, or corrective action?

princeman12 Oct 2017 3:25 p.m. PST

What is your complaint?

nevinsrip Sponsoring Member of TMP12 Oct 2017 4:09 p.m. PST

Not if it's considered an illegitimate complaint by the Editor.

You should complain about that.

kcabai12 Oct 2017 5:02 p.m. PST

Well I was hoping to hear from the editor

He will clarify why he doesn't think it is a legitimate complaint, if you ask him politely.

Have five days passed yet? I recently made a complaint and it was five days before an editor responded. By that time it was pointless continuing. Clearly they are busy with more important things.

Today is day number 6.

Legion 413 Oct 2017 8:58 a.m. PST

Well today is Friday the 13th … so …

You should have a PM from Editor Gwen in your TMP inbox, but it is possible she is delayed due to the recent death in her family.

The issue is that both of you claim to be posting the correct information. Can you two work it out together?

The last item in my TMP inbox, is yours asking for a contribution.

He has posted snippets from our Pricing Document, which does not include the headers and columns. The post includes roughly half of the first line, and skips the other four and half lines. the goes right into the last four lines. Again without the columnar headings. does not make sense.

As I stated before he is not on the HMGS-Midwest, BOD, I am. So he is not representing our organization. I do not know how we can work it out, unless he can edit that post and insert the correct document.

Its $200 USD per 10 x 10 foot booth. That is what I posted. If its wrong then show me that I am wrong. If its correct then apologize.

what is a BOD?

Thorby Inactive Member14 Oct 2017 5:53 a.m. PST

Oh yes its day 7. I don't know what the count is for. Its just fun.

Cerdic Supporting Member of TMP14 Oct 2017 6:38 a.m. PST

Bod was a 1970s children's cartoon in Britain…


Earl of the North14 Oct 2017 8:52 a.m. PST

A new game, can you come up with the meaning of BOD without getting dawghoused. evil grin

Blood… wait that would be a DH. wink

Vigilant14 Oct 2017 12:25 p.m. PST

Why not just answer his question and explain what is wrong with his post? I have no axe to grind here since I am in the UK and will not be able to afford to visit, but I was curious as to what this was all about. Having read the original post I don't see what you have to complain about, state what the prices are, show that he is wrong end of problem?

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP14 Oct 2017 1:46 p.m. PST

Board of Directors

… now what is the rest of this about?

Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian14 Oct 2017 2:52 p.m. PST

As I stated before he is not on the HMGS-Midwest, BOD, I am.

So you are claiming to be Kevin Cabai, Membership Vice President of HMGS Midwest?

Legion 416 Oct 2017 6:31 a.m. PST

This reminds me of putting a note in the Complaint Box complaining about the Compliant Box … evil grin

Marc at work17 Oct 2017 1:56 a.m. PST

Pass the popcorn – Looks like its going to be a long one

Earl of the North17 Oct 2017 4:32 a.m. PST

He's a busy man being on the BOD of something or other I'm sure he will be back soon to clear this up……whatever this was all about anyway.

Thorby Inactive Member18 Oct 2017 9:56 a.m. PST

The rates are posted at hmgs They are as I stated. Kcabai I await your apology.

Personal logo Murphy Sponsoring Member of TMP22 Oct 2017 7:03 p.m. PST

and so now…what did all that solve?

Personal logo jhancock Supporting Member of TMP23 Oct 2017 7:25 p.m. PST

That BOD means "Board of Directors"?!
