Koptalk is still losing members. As I’ve said before, last year saw 875 members leave the site. So much for the 99% renewal rate Dunk is bragging about. Most of those who are leaving are lurkers or members who contribute very little. However, a couple of days ago one of the most active members on koptalk left for good. With 34000 posts he was way above richt71 in second place. So who left?
For those of you who are (or have been lately) members of koptalk, you will have noticed a few goodbye posts from Kop. But in a couple of weeks time he’d be back. Moving sites isn’t easy when you’ve become familiar with a lot of the other users on one site. That’s probably one of the most important reasons why a fair few of the koptalk members are still there. And finding a new site where you feel comfortable, when you’re used to a particular site, can also be hard. But if you, like Kop did, find a site that is way better than most (all?) of the other sites around, you may make a little more effort to fit in. And in time you’ll feel as much at home there as you did on the site you left.
Losing Kop was a big blow for Dunk. Kop left a short post, explaining he would be leaving. Most of those who were online at the time read it, and some made comments. Even JD commented on it and moved it to another subforum. But when Dunk logged on he deleted the thread immediately and posted this:
Kop has left KopTalk to join an an anti-KopTalk site. He told me a few weeks that they wanted him to join but the condition was he had to spam KopTalk first and/or attack me hence his “BREAKING NEWS” I’m leaving post.
It’s never nice to see anyone leave but they’re always replaced.
Back to business.
First of all, the site Kop left for is not an anti-koptalk site. Koptalk is hardly mentioned there, and if it is it’s mainly jokes at Dunk’s expense. Secondly, there were never a condition that he had to spam koptalk or attack Dunk. He was asked to write a no-going-back post though. And last night he did. But without attacking Dunk or koptalk. Still Dunk deleted it. Maybe it was because he said which site he moved to? Dunk doesn’t like the names of other sites being mentioned, so YNWA is known as “the song site”, RAWK is known as “the multi-coloured stand site” and so on. Everyone knows of course about these sites, but their names can’t be mentioned on koptalk.
Anyway, I have a feeling this is not a one-off. More members will leave koptalk. And I’m talking about some of the most active members. There are still a few good lads on koptalk, and they deserve better than to be lied to and ripped off by a fat conman in Spain.
The above was posted on april 28th, and it looks like I was right. This month has seen the leaving of some reputable koptalkers. It must have been a big blow for Dunk to see valued members leaving the site. People like Kop, SenorButch, RedKopMike, Ytse Jam and Cat2064 have all flown from the nest. Will they be the last members of the koptalk exodus? The smart money says no. Koptalk has become tumbleweed town with little or no interaction whatsoever. Debate about posters leaving was discussed but Dunk, in order to cut the cull, locked the thread. Dunk like to use the term sensible community. Whats the definition of sensible, when its own members cannot discuss the direction of its own site? Last weeks video of Dunk flashing money in a pool was nothing more than a slap in the face. Not to his so called “haterz”, but to his members, whom many are now realising that Dunk has no job and his lifestyle in spain in wholly supported by the many good hard working people of koptalk.
Expect to see a rash of new members. Trust me, nobody joins forums until the summer. Expect to see Dunk be the creator of many new threads in order to try and get folk engaged. His act is wearing thin. Legin, Lecter, Selkirk how much longer do you want to prop up this con? Evertime you subscibe to a post you are validating the con. Wake up, there is no wallet or Informer, there are no insiders, there are no tickets, but there are plenty of vulnerable ordinary fans who have bought into the game, and you give them false hope. Dunk posts news from the rag and not one of you challenge him, not one. Try going to any other liverpool forum on the net and see what the reaction would be if something from the rag was published, let alone quoted. It’s time for your conscience to pack up and leave koptalk.
Its unbelievable how many members fall into the trap of the auto-renewal. The very least you should do is follow these simple directions and remove yourself from the auto renewal.
1. Log in to your PayPal account and go to the “History” subtab of the “My Account” tab.
2. Choose “Subscriptions” from the pull-down “Show” menu.
3. Press the “Submit” button. Choose this subscription, and click on its “Status.”
4. You will be taken to a Transaction Details page from which you may cancel your subscription.
You have to question the direction of the site when the posters mentioned above have found a new home. Contact them and ask them questions, I’m sure they will oblige you with their feelings. One thing is for sure: Nobody (except Dunk of course) can force them to leave if they dont want to themselves. This is their own choice. My guess is that they’ve finally seen through Dunk’s lies and won’t take it anymore. They’ve found better places to interact with other LFC supporters. Foras where Dunk isn’t deciding what is right and what is wrong to think, and where they don’t have to be fed his lies and crap about having sources inside the Club. Also they will no longer have to be fed news from the s*n. They can send PM’s to other members of the sites they’re at, and don’t have to be controlled by a paranoid site owner
