Ty Talk Cyberboard:

The Ty Talk Cyberboard is the Official Ty Message Board. There are several forums named Daily Tymes, Grins and Gripes, Bright Ideas and Mixed Bag. This forum is somewhat biased and Moderators Censor or rearrange messages, printing only what they want to be seen. Sometimes entire threads are removed or rearranged to make the posts say what the moderators want. Even though a Grins and Gripes page is provided, Gripes are deleted because no Complaints are allowed. Names and references to web sites are supposedly not allowed yet they are not censored when one refers to favored names and sites.

The Rules are relaxed for some but not for others. The point being made here is not to complain about sites being mentioned, but to point out that in spite of the so called rules, they ARE ALLOWED to be mentioned and that it is UNFAIR to CENSOR the mentioning of other sites if any are allowed in the first place.

The Ty moderators and Ty Cyberboard rules should either consistently allow or consistently not allow. Favoritism is obvious when the rules are relaxed for some then are enforced on others unevenly.

8-25-2006 FRIDAY


The Ty Moderators have been at it again this week! Allowing posts that they claim are against the rules while censoring and removing Cyberboard members who dare to pose the question of why?

The posts are on the Current 2006 Breaking News Page. Ty Moderators it seems give favor to certain Software and censor any comments against that software or for alternative choices.

This web site is the home of My Collection Software used for various types of collections as well as for for Beanie Babies. If you should mention the name of any other type of software for Beanies or any other website or the person's name associated with that site on the Ty Cyberboard, although this information is supposedly not allowed, it will be posted. If you should mention thebeanienews or My Collection software for Beanies that is sent to you by email on Excel and that you can update yourself, your post will be deleted. The thread where a post is made will remain with the favored posts but the edits will be pulled. Any unsatisfied remarks about a person's experience with other software will also be removed. What is left will read like a commercial.

On 8/23/06, Beanienews wrote:

A person wrote on the Ty Cyberboard about Beanie Software and getting updates.

The Ty Moderator allowed posting about Simple Book keeping and Ty Beanie Tracker Software with no problem.

When My Collection software was mentioned however, the postings were censored and were called Advertising.

It seems that the moderator has favorites that in spite of rules names and items are allowed to be discussed.

Those however not on the favorites list are unfairly censored.

The Ty Cyberboard Moderator should either equally allow postings or equally censor.


That's odd, isn't it? Ty should treat all equally

7-7-2006 FRIDAY


A really great thread was started on the 6th giving shout outs of thanks to beanie sites. When I added to the list I got this reply from cyberboard@ty.com:

Your post to the Ty bulletin board was not approved.

Reason for denial:Advertising

You are not permitted to advertise your business or website, or give your User Name for other websites or auction boards.

Post Subject: Re:I found myself bouncing around msjanie, beanwatcher, planetbeans, etc... and


Here is the thread I posted to from July 6th and 10th

I found myself bouncing around msjanie, beanwatcher, planetbeans, etc... and
thought it would be a good idea for everyone to "THANK" them for their tireless efforts in helping keep the beanie world informed.

I for one think their efforts are invaluable to all of us and I'd just like to say:

"Thank you all very much."
zzzit

Re:I found myself bouncing around msjanie, beanwatcher, planetbeans, etc... and

I like to bounce around these sites as well and would like to second the motion for a BIG THANK YOU. These sites take a lot of work to maintain and are greatly appreciated by this collector.
bearcat107

Count me in with a HUGE THANK YOU to all these sites. They are all AWESOME.
Basha

I would also like to add my thanks - I keep up with beanie news via them daily!
Blodwen

I ditto all that was said and then some!!
Dolado

May I add "Gramma Pat" and Traderlist to that list of invaluable sites? n/t
Grins

And let's not forget Doodle's Page!! My thanks to all these sites for they what they do!
Cheers, from the UK!
the phoenix

I would also like to thank these sites I also spend a lot of time reading there information.
rosebowl

I think Gramma Pat luvs to play favourites. - so sad.

If there is a bad trader she knows, she will not post the name. What a pity
74507322121

Re:I think Gramma Pat luvs to play favourites. - so sad.

I agree, I think she likes to play favorites, my problem was never resolved, and after many emails ... I lost about $80.00 worth of beanies.

But I do want to thank all the beanies sites who have provided information, fun and games, prizes and free message boards.
attic_nut

Please write to us again. We try to stay on a case until it is resolved.. if possible. There are times where there is nothing we can do. We need proof of shipping and receiving or other proof of a problem before we can put pressure on the alleged scammer.

If Traderlist receives many complaints about a person, and it can't be resolved, then a Caution Page is added to the Internet. This is a drastic step, and we only do it when we absolutely have to.

Again, I'm sorry if your problem wasn't solved. Most of them are. Please write again.
Sincerely,
Pat
GrammaPat

Gramma Pat... Did you get my email about Melissa? No refund from her..........

and she won't respond to my contact tries. It's been months since I paid for the phone.
Sugarmagnolia

Yes..I just sent you a response. I think it is time for a Caution Page for her..

and the authorities need to be contacted. Fraud Forms should be filed with the FBI and the USPS. I am going to try to contact her once more.
Thanks,
Pat
GrammaPat

I was so saddened to see this comment. There are some cases where we cannot post a name if it is part of eBay contact info.

If you need help, and haven't received it, please write to us again. Please remember that we don't automatically follow up on messages to the message board. You need to contact a mediator at Traderlist for help.

Thanks,
Pat :)
GrammaPat

Don't forget aboutbeanies they have the best tag info,and CleanUpThe beans for counterfeit info. Very helpful!
OtterGongo

Re:ummm, would beanies be different without these places???
Beanies probably wouldn't be any different--but it sure wouldn't be as much fun with the news from all these wonderful sites!!! Let's give credit where credit is due!!

Thanks a beanie bunch to all the hard working webmasters who let us know what is going on in the beanie world!!!

Closing Comment...

So, according to the Ty Cyberboard Moderator, "You are not permitted to advertise your business or website, or give your User Name for other websites or auction boards". Yet the following were all permitted to be listed:

Ms. Janie, Beanwatcher, Planetbeans, Beanie Island, Sals Attic, About Beanies, Karen Brit, Beanieholics, Marilyn, Beanie Universe, Gramma Pat, Beanie Mom, Rosie Wells, The Beanie King, Beanie Wonderland, Collectiblez, Traderlist, SmartCollecting, UnderGround Bean and bobbles and beanies.

This was a name dropping festival and a great tribute to those who support the Ty products and there wouldn't be any complaints, names SHOULD be posted. My only concern is that there is an ODD DISTRIBUTION of CENSORSHIP by the TY MODERATOR(s). Every time I post a web site name, the post is censored and deleted!

Watch for more examples highlighted below. This is not a representation of EVERY example, it is just a few to prove the point that he Cyberboard censorship is not evenly exercised.

Question about Price list
Which is more accurate metaexchange or smart collecting
jeneval2

Hey! I should be flattered! Getting banned without even posting! So far, banned:
username - 1geraldine
username - thebeanienews
and now...
username - mycollectionty

Yet, usernames, mytyheart and mycollection are allowed and those are not related to this site! No offense to the users of these names, great Cyberboard folks as well as those listed above in the grid. They are not the censors. This is a reference to the official Ty Noderators censorship. (Oops, an interesting Typo...), The Ty Moderators!

Hmmm, what name will I use now? Shhhhh, Tyme will tell!




3-15-2006 WEDNESDAY


After about 5 years, my username "1geraldine" has been declared invalid. Not too long ago my alternate "thebeanienews" was also invalidated after Ty saw it on New Year's Eve. I haven't even been posting so I guess the mods are reading this page and getting annoyed. Time for a new name! mycollection is already taken so... See you all on the boards aka...
mycollectionty

A writer made a complaint on the Grins and Gripes Board that the person they were replying to had made a complaint. How redundant. A complaint about a complaint on a Gripe Board! Duh.

It is true however that even though the Board is named "Grins and Gripes", moderators will remove postings and send a note to the writer that states that according to the rules, Complaints are not allowed (read below). This makes no sense because a gripe IS a complaint!

Re:sis gave me her beanie collection and???????
go to metaexchange online.it is like the stockmarket but for beanies. it will give you prices of beanies there
largebeaniefan

Get to know your beanies
Go to aboutbeanies and get to know what you have. Tag generation means a lot - not just whether something is retired. If you have something that is valuable, have it authenticated, as you will be able to get more $$ for it when (if) you sell.

Scribbly With Pen is large and has some awful fabric. It is not up to par with other Pinkys or with any other Ty product! The fabric is hard and tightly stuffed with no beans. The pen is non-distinguishable other than being pink plastic.

From The Ty Cyberboard:

Re:Scribbly... I have two questions...
Where did you find it and what did the shop charge you.
Thank You for any reply*
riski

Maybe you are not familiar with these, but eons ago when I was in school, we brought these types of dogs to school for classmates to sign. I had one for each year.

You needed a special pen to write on the hard fabric. They don't fade out much over time.

I wish I had a daughter or niece to buy this for, since I don't have a use for it anymore.

LOL maybe the Beanie Friends will use them when they meet this summer!
