Posting Comments

First off, I really appreciate everyone that visits this site and enjoy reading the comments and receiving e-mails from you. I enjoy doing this site and finding things for every McCreerian to enjoy and I know that Tarah, Hailey and Gloria, also enjoy doing this site, or we wouldn't even bother trying to keep it updated with the latest news, videos, pictures, etc of Scotty.  It has been stated from the day Hailey created this site that no negativity would be tolerated and yet people still posted them. We have been very lenient on some of the comments that have been posted, but I felt today's comments just went a little to far.  Not only were people bashing other artists but they started bashing each other and for the life of me I cannot understand why or how it gets to this level.  This fan site was created for everyone's enjoyment and to keep people up-dated on Scotty's career not for people to come on here and bash other artists or bash each other for that matter. It has already been said many times on here that if you want to post negative stuff or fight with other fans there are plenty of other fan sites out there that will allow you to do that, but this fan site has not and never will allow that to happen.

For some of you that do not know this, I work 6 days a week and attend college 4 hrs a night on my only day off, so therefore, I have very limited time to monitor the comments on the site.  Plus, I have tried very hard to not have to monitor this site so closely and make it to the point that you have to jump through hoops to post a comment, but after what I've read today I feel I have no other choice but to change the way comments are posted on the site. 

From this point on if you wish to leave a comment you will only be able to do so through your Google Account.  If you do not have a Google Account you can create a Gmail account and that will allow you to post a comment.  Also, from this point on every comment will be sent to an e-mail address for approval before it posts on the site.  So, you may post a comment in the morning but it may not show up until later that day after the moderator has time to review it and approve it.  The only other option I can see is to just stop allowing comments all together and I don't really want to do that. I apologize to the people that visit this site and leave only good comments, but at this point I don't feel I have any other choice but to do this.  Thanks again to all of you that visit the site - we truly appreciate it! If you have any comments about this post feel free to e-mail them to me at fosupdates01@gmail.com

Now let's move on and see what else Scotty has in store for all of us in 2013

  4. Thanks Donna for doing this. I think this is such a great idea under the circumstances. I love reading other fans' comments about shows they've attended and sometimes posting links to videos or pics from shows or other Scotty news. I think this will keep it much for fun and enjoyable for the fans without all the drama. Thanks again!

  8. Donna and Staff I am so sad and sorry what you have to do to keep this site up and working. This site has given me so much joy to be able to keep up with Scotty no matter where I am in the world. I can fully understand. I know I was disappointed to see some of the comments and knew best not to make a comment because as you said it is to let all keep up with amazing young man. THANK YOU DONNA TARAH, HAILEY AND GLORIS PLEASE KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK this is one Fan that deeply appreciates what you do. GOD BLESS O!! Thanks for the Videos this weekend

  11. Thank you Donna very much for this site. My family and I adore Scotty and try to further his career any way we can. We are very proud McCreerians. I will be very relieved to see only positive comments and information in the future. I am not sure what all was said because I skip over negative comments, but I am thankful that I won't have to do that anymore. My family and I were fortunate to meet Scotty and his wonderful family and attend many of his concerts last year. He is such a kind, wonderful, and respectful person and his family were genuinely friendly, kind, any caring about Scotty and his fans. I have met the nicest people at Scotty's concerts and look forward to seeing him and meeting more fans in April.
    As in the past, I look forward to coming to your site to keep up with Scotty . I think the world of you and appreciate all that you do to make my life brighter.

  14. I finally got my Gmail account set up! Its a shame its come to this, but I appreciate this site very much, and all the work that Donna and the other girls put into it. Thanks so much!

  15. Thanks for doing this. We can now enjoy Scotty's journey as we did in the beginning. We should trust Scotty. People said he couldn.t go back to high school...he did. They also said he couldn't be a normal kid in his hometown and at college and he is. They said newbies don't put out a Christmas album so soon...he did and it was the second best selling album of the season. I think this young man has a handle on what he is doing with the support of his fans and management. Now all of us McCreerians can support him on this journey.

  18. I miss the free flow of conversation, this reviewing of every comment is very restrictive, and slow, but I understand why its being done, and agree with it, but notice there's many with cute comments not talking anymore, hopefully, we can safely welcome everyone back again, minus those comments that are meant to be mean. I hope that opinions are still accepted as long as they're done in a tactful way in relation to the topic at hand. I left a comment on another post here, and it hasn't been printed yet, and I'm wondering, was it ok? I just had to leave one visible comment saying 'the dance' sung by Scotty and Sarah was beautiful! It was just an inclusion in the rest of my comment and hope the comment is acceptable?

    1. Dee,

      I was thinking about the flow of comments at work today and I decided to change the settings so the comments will automatically post but you will still need to have a Google account to post comments. Your previous comment was just approved too.

      Hopefully, with people still needing to have a Google acct to post comments they will continue to be positive

    3. I really think that if people have to show their name on a gmail account they wont be at liberty to say nasty things .i hope this helps.

    4. Thanks so much, Donna. I was so happy to see my comments published and I really hope that all the other dedicated McCreerians will get a Gmail account and come back on board. Thanks again! Dee

    5. Dee Brooks & Donna,

      Great idea. I was thinking that maybe this will work okay since everyone still needs to identify themselves with a google account. If a particular google account starts going off base hopefully there would be a way to block that account. This would allow more free flow of comments and because no one can hide behind "annonymous" things will stay more cordial. I'm really hoping this way does work out (less work for you then Donna!)
