The reason everyone left, as I have been told, was some on here got discussed with all the mods interfering that didn't even live in TX. I hope we now have local ones to share in the revitalization of Hood Underground. I was told by others that it was all the drama. I hope we can get out site back to norm and help each other out with problems and answers to their questions.Let's get it started.
No. All the drama was about a girl named Candy. That is why people left. That on top of Campbell underground kept invading. It had zero to do with the mods. Back when everyone left there was only ONE mod. Since then the rest have been added by vote. I do hope that the underground can get back up and going because it use to be such a great place. You know that because looking back you were on here during that time.
FreeLittleFootFanClub Actually, people started leaving about two years ago, way after the whole Candy drama went down. Mods were running the place, blocking everyone they did not like for no reason what-so-ever. Two individuals on here, were constantly creating drama because they had nothing else going on(one of them is a mod now). Random members started showing up that did not even live in the area, like that "Bangel" person, or whatever her name was. Those guys were just creating a bunch of self-centered posts and posting inappropriate pictures of themselves. It basically became a bitter house-wife venting spot. Random posts, rudeness, childish fights, etc. Nobody wants to be a part of that.
I agree nobody wanted to be a part of the crap. Candy was still here a year ago on and off. Just search the name. My big point was dont put the blame on all the mods since it wasnt all of us. I have yet to block anyone at all. I do hope it goes back to the non-crazy. It use to be so much fun to do Starbucks nights etc.. Some of those people I met on those nights are now some of my best friends.
TiffanyD, what you are saying is what I have been told also.
FreeLittleFootFanClub, are you here around Ft. Hood? How many mods is there for Hood? I certainly hope we locals can get out site back up and running to help each other and keep people out that don't live around Ft. Hood. It is our chance to start all over and make it a good place to come to for info. I have always found it beneficial.
What's everyone doing for Thanksgiving? If you are going out of town be careful and enjoy your time with family and friends. We are staying home just the two of us. Wish we had family to enjoy it with. I will be cooking instead of going to a restaurant. We like left overs and you don't have those if you go to a restaurant.
All of the mods were at one time based at Hood and as FLFFC said, we were voted in by the members after most of the drama occurred. But all of us were members during the drama and the mod who was here during that time did the best she could.
I'm back home in Florida, my grandma moved down from PA to live with my sister and I. Hopefully my divorce will be over in the next month.
I remember back in 2009-2010 how fun it was to get on and just shoot it (no pun intended) with everyone.
I think the Candy thing kept things interesting, a diffrent personality every day. It was when people from other Undergrounds started coming over that made it bad. It would be cool to get back the way it was.......
I agree with you,LovinArmyLife, it would be great to get the site up and running like it once was. I don't agree that we need so many mods and especially ones that aren't even military related now nor living around the Ft. Hood area. If the site feels it needs mods then get people from here that are military related.
Kelly and I still have husbands in the military. Technically until Megz divorce is final she does too. The mods havnt had to moderate anything in a long time. Kara who is the admin mod is the only one who has deleted anything in months. She is the mod on just about every underground. So this being slow cant be because mods are being mean etc... It can be brought back to how it was but it will take new people coming in. Kelly was the mod on here and the only one when things went bad. Funny thing with this being blamed on mods is the fact that she was also the only one back when things were really good too.
The mods are not the reason everyone left this group. It was the drama and people blaming others. It does not matter who the mods are on here. And it does not matter if they are local or oversea's. If anyone is wanting to get this site back up and running like it use to then they do not need to be laying blame on people that were not the cause of it.
If it matters at all- I will claim to be the only mod who was in place when things were good, when they went bad, and was still here when things got really bad. The total overthrow of the old mod system happened as a new feature right around that time and a total re-vote for all members was done to decide all of the current mods, minus 1 who was added by the mods as a unanimous mod vote.
Hear-say is hear-say and I know what happened from my perspective and I know others have their opinions too (good and bad) and that's just fine.
I have to cringe and giggle a little at remembering the Campbell UG bombardment, lol. I really have to hand it to them- for being such an apparently grumpy group...they sure did know how to band together on a mission! No one could tell who was who and yes people were iced left and right. I believe at one time there were more than 50 accounts sharing the warm breath in the ice box. Overall, many members didn't understand the bigger picture or what was going on in the background and the task that was placed in my care and felt that things could have been done differently. In the long run, I don't feel it was the mods who killed HU's membership. It was the members who chose to use their good sense and leave. I on the other hand have not yet listened to that side of my brain lol.
To get HU back up and running, I'm afraid it means bringing back the drama as that seems to be what most people were really here to see and left when it was abruptly stopped. This topic might just do it if it takes a turn for the worse.
If I remember correctly from when I was on here long ago the name "candy" was banned and all topics and anyone who brought the girl back up would be ICED! Am I wrong... I'm not sure if many people actually ever really knew what happened to her but from what I've found out its not pretty... To be honest I'm ashamed to be one of "the ugly" people towards her back then!!! I'm very sorry for things I've said about her and to her and I admitted to calling police and MP and even CPS when Craigslist drama began... And to this day I regret it!! I heard from a very reliable source some sad and heartbreaking news about her and her family a few years back... I REGRET ever saying anything about the poor person! She had a bunch of people pretending to be her (I have proof of 3 to be honest) and they didn't help matters! So until you know the WHOLE TRUTH I think it's best to keep CANDY out of the subject! She's been through a lot and seems to be doing okay from what I'm being told! IMO this site should be about helping others as we would want help ourselves, not bringing others down... Thet brings a bad name to "Army Wife"!
You are 100% correct Texas Gal! The background story is what most people don't see and they just want the drama, which this drama was not acceptable due to what it was doing to a human life. This site wasn't about destroying someone it was about helping so it was the only way I knew how to make it stop.
Thank you Kelly! After finding out the truth about her and from a VERY reliable person, it killed me that I was even a part of the said drama! I have asked my forgiveness and I pray things get better for her... Things got way too out of hand and I truly do not believe she would have allowed herself to do and or say half the things, this & some proof ( ie paperwork with dates as to where they were located and what was going on with her And her family during said times on here) that she was actually ANY of the different "personalities" we all claimed her to have!
You have been tracked on facebook and see that you are Candy so stop your lying and begging on here. This is the same as you did when you were on here before. We don't want you on here causing problems again. We see your husband is out of the military and has a service dog. We know all about you, Candy.
Wow, just because Candy and I both posted about a friend in need of firewood your assuming I'm her! And stalking Candy, wow... Everyone knew her husband got out of the Army medically and a lot of people know he has a service dog.... He's a wounded warrior! Stalking Candy makes you no better than her. And I haven't started any drama, you assuming I'm her is the drama! Candy was right when she said drama starts and she hasn't done anything! Wow!!! Drama starters
