Hmmmm. $50.00 for the “illustrious” privilege of shopping at CPF Marketplace for a whole 90 days? Nope. Not me. Even at $0.00 it wasn’t worth the hassle. Been there, done that. I bought several items from there in the past (when it rarely was up and running properly) and the thought of paying money for the privilege makes me cringe. How about some of you that have enough money to set fire to and not miss it, volunteer to test drive this “elite” and cleverly disguised as rational, “opportunity”. I await the results on pins and needles. No, not really! Not a hater – just saying.

I bet some people toss some cash at this. Like the saying goes, a fool and his money are soon parted. Lol!

The fact that they would even put forth this makes me think even less of them over at CPF than I did before. I wasn’t sure that was possible but here it is.

See here is more of that obsessive stuff. You guys just can’t seem to stay away and always have to have at least one thread about CPF on the front page.

The CPF Shopping cart has been around for about 3 years. It’s old news. Here is the thread about it http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?237809-The-CPF-Shopping-Cart-is-now-OPEN!

Been drinking the Koolaid, SheldonG? “See here is more of that obsessive stuff”. Really?? We have fun picking at C^F mainly because we CAN here and, they deserve it. Many of us here at BLF are refugees from the oppressive, boot on the neck, over controlling nonsense that is C^F. I dare you to go there and sing the praises of a $5 flashlight and foreign maker of said flashlight and then have the audacity to disagree (don’t even think of it) with the moderator/administrator when you get slapped down for being a know nothing, low brow. Don’t even think about informing the other members of your ‘find’ by posting a link (not allowed) to anything other than companies or custom makers that have already paid for the privilege of censored/exclusive advertising rights. Lets not forget about the infamous “red banner” and the silly a$$ “test” you have to pass just to make a first post. The whole site smacks of OCD smugness. I probably don’t need to mention how poorly the site is run. It’s down for repairs or maint. almost as much as it is up and running. Before you get on me for not ‘getting it’ or not understanding what goes on overe there – I do. I own many, and I do mean many, high dollar custom lights along with far to many over priced Surefire lights (I love Surefire). I’ve been collecting lights for decades longer than C^F has been up and running and resent having some condecending snot (moderators, admins and the owner) take verbal pot shots at me and others simply because we showed an interest in a vendor they don’t approve of or we simply asked a question regarding one of the almighty moderator’s comments. Ban City is right around the corner if you do. I’m proud to say that I am “self banned”! Yep, there quite a lot of interesting and knowledgeable members there (some are here now) and I have learned a lot from them over the years and even made a few friends there. That’s not the point though. Here, we have freedom to discuss all flashlights and manufacturers along with the occasional off color comment without fear of being taken to task for it. There, well, good luck with that.

I guess most took Kreisler’s post as some kind of ironic funny post on a BUDGET forum where most find ironic and funny paying just for their right to buy stuff… (i might be wrong, of course). I wouldn’t call it “obsessive”, no more than joining a so illustrious privileged shopping club. The only sad thing about the OP is the sad humiliated bird eyes. Shame on the photographer.
Until shown wrong, i prefer an open non-affiliated forum, with much less bias for sure.

@Kreisler: approximate lumens and runtime for that bird?

I don’t want to be ‘that guy’ but if you like CPF so much, why are you here?
Most people here don’t like CPF because of the way they treat members and run their site. That is why we are here rather than there. It’s like when you first moved out of your parents house, it was not that bad until you got a taste of what it was like to be free to do whatever you wanted. Normal people could never go back and that is how CPF seems to me. I only go back to stir the pot once in a while and push my luck to see how long it takes to get banned.

Hey Sheldon, you are very welcome here, don’t take anyone wrong.
But right or wrong, we do enjoy CPF bashing cuz they deserve it. We are mostly refugees here, having come that forum.

So don’t take it personally, but defending CPF in these parts is like a defending a BMW owner who won’t tolerate any car except the Ultimate Driving Machine. It’s going to piss off a lot of Ford owners before the 2nd sentence is out of your mouth.

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

Thank you Troop. You made me realize I was somewhat rude and for that I apologize. I still say folks that don“t like the tenor of these threads should “stay out”. IT IS THAT SIMPLE

Well. It’s probably the last straw for me and likely to be banned soon (when the “scanners”) get to this post.

Had most of my threads deleted since I’ve given them money at CPFM (just one month luckily). I’m now branded a dealer and “No dealers, nor manufactures are permitted to start any type of product thread on CPF proper…”

OP, you can back me on this one Smile None of my threads have any advertising or any semblence of BUY ME anywhere (not posted by me if there are any). Most were advanced product announcements/rumors, which just about everyone appreciated. I sanitized all my posts there (unlike at BLF Smile )

A couple months back I tried to GIVE things away (new to market lights), no strings, I even stripped out any branding or mention beyond my name. It was not “approved”.

Folks often post links to OTHER forums about “new/unannounced” products coming out. I thought I could bring some of that firsthand to CPF rather than relying on 3rd party sources — but sadly I’m wrong.

That just means more for you folks though. We’ve given away two limited edition lights here in a very short time and more to come!

EDIT: The primary reason I liked CPF was the tapatalk integration. It made commenting on the fly so quick and easy. If BLF had some sort of app support I wouldn’t even think of the above…

We are happy to have you here, Ualnosaj! And your contests! You are a good example of how having dealers on a board can be a benefit and not a problem.
