Thread: Dont ya just love.....or hate...

  1. #1

    Dont ya just love.....or hate...

    Edition 38 forum. Someone puts a post up about stuff being stolen off their car at EDITION 38 SHOW.....6 pages later of people saying how bad the show is for drunks, stuff getting pinched and damaged and the mods lock the thread cos they cant stand the show being slagged off. If you cant take peoples comments and their veiws then dont have a forum.
    Ive been to too many shows to remember over my time in the VW scene (20+ years) and not once have i had or herd of anyone having stuff pinched and damaged at any other show but E38.
    Thats why i do go.
    It grinds my gears. It was never like this in the old days. You would go to a show and enjoy the cars and have a party at nightwith your mates and not have to worry. Its a shame that nowaday there are too many nob heads that think its their right at a show to steal and fuk people off.

    Rannt over.

    totally agree mate after the aggro last time i will be making my way to action for camping and beers in the future i swear me and jon had a few complaints about the show 2 years ago after we caught people robbing our beer and trying to nick a few other things, and all our posts got removed. Ive got no time for nob heads and ed38 is the only show that you hear of these things happening, they said last year that they will get rid of the rave tent and have a more chilled out atmosphere so they decided to get hed kandi in and have a banging house party which is all good untill people get pissed/drugged up and decide to start driving about the site in there cars and causing un-necessary trouble by going on the rob.

    Both last year and the year before my thread was locked then deleted on E38...

    One reason we went to action this year was to get away from all the trouble plus Ben and Laura had a good time here last year...

    VW Action had no trouble from what we saw and we didn't worry about leaving anything at the campsite while we walked around...

    its such a shame aswell as the first time i went i had such a good time and heard no reports of any trouble. if they want to stop the aggro then they need to up the security get rid of the music tent and get the police in with drug dogs because last year all i could smell was weed everywhere

    Bringing the police in would mean the end of the whole show...

    It's not the organisers fault nob heads turn up. There have been incidents at other shows...GTI International used to get all the stick. It's inevitable that stuff happens where there are large groups of people. The reason you can single out Ed38 is unlike any other event it has it's own forum where people can vent directly at the organisers. Other shows don't have this 'feature'.

    I agree they do need security that don't look like they're on day release from prison/local asylum and need to get their **** together. This year the security looked better than previous years in all honesty.

    If you organised a show, wouldn't you delete threads on your forum slating it...I would. OK so they could perhaps deal with it better by contacting you directly.

    I'm not saying that it's perfect but I can imagine it's a f*cking nightmare to organise an event as big as Edition has become.

    It''s the client base that e38 attracts. I agree with what Buckers is saying with the difficulty of organising said event, but going on the problems last year security should of been massively improved.

    But I don't know because I was'nt there.

    People having sh!t nicked is really not funny, there is a dude on e38 claiming that is bumper was nicked off his mk2.

    its a nightmare organising a social event on here let alone a show that size... all in all their skills are top notch... its the fools who openly flaunt the rules that need singling and showing the gate....

    when we went 2 years ago me and jon were walking around takeing some pictures and there was a bloke hammering around in a polo with somebody else being towed on a tyre at stupid speeds and nobody did anything about it. Its come to the point when people were talking about taking the centre caps off their wheels incase they get nicked how did somebody manage to get a back bumper iff a car and nobody notice,
