PlayFirst vs BFG

21 days to get my PF account access back to its rightful owner. 

What does this tell us?

PF has no better forum or website abilities or security than any other forum similar to ours.  We've always known this, it isnt a surprise, just one more confirmation of the fact. 

I personally would have liked to see BFG take over the forums at PF or for them to be eliminated all together (although I enjoy seeing my medals).  PF forums are such a mess, thats why I discontinued going there back in June and had not been back until informed of my account access issues.

My plan once I regained access to my account was to delete my payment info at PF simply because we cant buy games there anymore and I didnt want my credit card just hanging out in cyberspace, even though it has been there for 3 years now, supposedly on a safe and secure server, separate from the forums.  Which is really a dumb thing for PF to have said 2 years ago when Candy had issues, because if someone can access your account, they can perhaps not see your cc, but they can make unauthorized purchases of games on your card.  Not that anyone would care about doing that, just saying, they could. And we've all always been aware of that. Yet we all left our info on their site.

Regardless, when I went to delete my payment info, I got a message that payment info was moved over to BFG.  When I log into BFG I dont see it there.  So PF "gave" our credit card info to another company.  For those of you who think thats okay, more power to you. What I will be doing with ANY online company I buy from, moving forward, is making a purchase but not saving my credit card info on file with them, and/or deleting it, and inputting it again the next time I choose to make a payment.

PF is working on "fixing" the access to the main website was caused by the affiliate program being suspended and moved to BFG but they dont seem to understand what I am telling them about not being able to access my own site due to the "affiliate program being discontinued' message that is overriding and rerouting people. lol.  This will most likely take another 21 days....grrrr.

I really used to enjoy the TM games at PF and had a lot of laughs at PFs forums back in the early days.  But the forums are so boring now, nobody good driving that bus, and PF games are just so repetitive and stale now, I havent enjoyed one for 6 months if not longer, and dont really see myself getting back into TM games anytime soon unless something sensational comes out.  That plus their horrible customer service just irritates me to no end.  Maybe 3 years at PF has run its course....        sad

Amen I totally agree...granted the RSS feed is down so I don't even bother now. Before I would drop it to see if any regulars had posted but now....I just thank goodness I printed out all my game receipts and codes in case they try something stupid.

seriously need to use spell check before posting :)
