Come home soon!
Come home soon!
Yes, we do !!!.......I was just thinking about her for about the thousandth time......she could format logical, detailed itineraries and make it look so easy !
Yep . . . and she had the patience about it, that I know I often lack.
I do appreciate everyone else creating incredible itineraries, but MM is the itinerary magician LOL!
Amen to all the above!! Miss you MM!!
Unfortunately I doubt MM will be back this time. She has taken breaks from TA in the past, but she is pretty fed up with some of TA's practices (I kind of am too but not to the point of leaving). Though this was not her issue, I think so many reviews of hotels and attractions are so bogus that it is sickening. But of course nothing is done for obvious economic reasons.
It is unfortunate MM isn't coming back, but the venue seems to drive some people away and honestly, I feel rightfully so.
Well said John. I also miss M_M for the contributions in the small portions of the areas covered by this forum that I have knowledge of, but I was always in awe of her ability with itineraries.
Yes, I miss her so much! While I may be a resident, and have lots of local knowledge, I am not good with itineraries at all, and she does those so creatively and well thought out with people's times. Miss you Maple! :)
I'm not sure how TA can police the review issue, John, without doing away with reviews entirely. As a consumer I take all product reviews on the web with the proverbial grain of salt LOL.
I haven't seen those pesky "pop-under" rating charts for a while, so maybe some things can be changed for the better on here.
The whole issue of "pop-under" ratings made me look at my own ratings & low & behold I had inadvertently moused-over the chart, giving a ski venue we love the lowest rating! I was not able to remove the rating; however,I could at least change it to the proper high rating.
Tech gets more & more complicated as I want to get my life more & more simplistic LOL!
"I haven't seen those pesky "pop-under" rating charts for a while, so maybe some things can be changed for the better on here."
They are still around, dc, just not as frequently.. Although TA took the ratings gathered by that method down from the review pages, they are still gathering data with these annoying pop-unders without saying what purpose they may be used for in the future.
MM will be missed. She did provide the best, detailed itineraries. I am sorry to hear that she has left the forum.
As far as reviews, TA can do more to control the fake reviews. I reported an establishment for obviously fake reviews, and nothing was done about them. I know they could never catch everyone, but there are many that are so blatantly false.
