    It seems like every month someone (or several people) seem to create kik groups and then use this forum to fill them with members. Similar with Facebook groups.

    Cancuncare is not a resource to fish members from or a search engine to find other groups and I'm getting tired of the regularity of this. Everything you need to communicate with one another can be done here, whether it be in open forum or via private messages.

    Truth of the matter is, unlike Cancuncare, Kik offers no possible way of finding people going to TTR the same time as you via their own platform, and Facebook is extremely limited in that respect too.

    I'm not going to spend time and money keeping this site the best TTR source on the Internet for others, usually newbies, to come in and 'steal' our membership by pulling people away from here to a different platform they set up with 3 clicks on their phone.

    I'm going to start getting tough on this, I've let it go on for far too long. Future offenders will be regarded in the same way as spammers and"kik"ed. They can go enjoy their kik or Facebook group by themselves.

    I would appreciate the assistance of those honorable members among you in reporting such posts via the report button at the bottom of each post, or letting me know of private message invites you may receive to help ensure this community continues to do what it has always done best.

    you don't have to consider them spammers....they ARE spammers. kick 'em to the curb (well, unless they are really hot in which case I'd like their SLS screen name first ;) )

    I feel you steve maintaining the site isnt a walk in the park. Just in the past trying to keep track of boobs cruise attendees was a chore. Its not too fair to you for all your work to just steal it...

    It is a cool site, but you are missing group chat like KIK on here as far as I can tell. Maybe look RumbleTalk: Online group chat room for websites as an option to add to the site? Please don't take this the wrong way, but I have found KIK as a valuable way to chat with the people that will be at the resort at the same time as you. I hope you find a way to provide the same functionality.

    Steve..........I believe that folks would pay a nominal fee $25ish for group chat that allows for pics and live cam stuff not allowed here because of sponsor issues/concerns

    I believe Steve is considering adding a chat room function, or at least that was my impression after his positive rsponse to the suggestion, in the "Facebook vs Cancuncare" thread from 6 or 7 weeks ago

    Re adding a chat room that allows pics etc. I did think about it, but let's talk about the elephant in the room.

    These Kik groups I'm trying to stop being promoted here are for swapping dirty pics, sex chat and trying to hook up aren't they? Everyone who starts one knows that, everyone who joins one knows that, and I know that too. If you want to chat about the hotel, theme nights, room types, restaurants, travel tips, staff coming and goings, dates you'll be traveling, latest changes, detailed reviews etc then this forum already offers every which way to do that either in public or private.

    If I added a chat room it would either get used for swapping dirty pics and sex chat or not used at all because people didn't feel comfortable doing that in an environment that the whole membership could access, and those that didn't want to use it for sexual purposes would have no use for it since they are content to post their vacation related thoughts in public. A chat room would probably be used more for spamming other 'private' groups than goes on already and since it would be in real time, would be less efficiently monitored.

    Seems a minority (particularly new members) want to turn the site into some kind of Lifestyle site such as SDC or SLS but for Temptation folks. Temptation have already tried that with Swingee, and it failed badly. SDC have a Temptation group with a handful of members and 6 posts a year. I started Cancunswingers.com to provide just that environment, and to take it away from here.

    On a slight tangent, I don't know what it is about the way our membership has changed over the years. We are having more and more faceless avatars showing ass or boobs and more and more naked pics being posted in the galleries, usually faceless again. I'm getting people sign up with usernames like "cuminmymouth" and "IloveDP" which I delete if I notice. The more it continues the more people think it's acceptable, the more people join in and it isn't what we want here, or at least it isn't what I want.

    I can't see a chat room helping, in fact I think it would do the opposite. Might be something I could add to Cancunswingers but it's not used enough at the moment to justify it.

    Fun fact: You can actually find all the LS folks you would ever wish to meet once at the hotel, and you don't have to try and figure out whether the 23yr old blonde called Veronique from Montreal you just sent some dirty pics of your wife to isn't really someone called Nigel who lives in his Mom's basement, has never left Alabama and who's most memorable sexual experience was with a chicken.

    Let's get back to the reason this site exists.

    I just wanna say thanks Steve for the site. We are not into the lifestyle but love to party with fun people. We wanted to go somewhere fun and celebrate our 25 anniversary but everywhere looked so boring or full of kids. I kept seeing TTR and it looked so fun but we thought it was a lifestyle resort only. After more research and finding your forum we learned that it's more about having fun with out being judged and since joining I have had some people from all over make us feel welcomed. It's only because of this site did we make the decision.
    PS. Why did the Chicken fucker have to be from the south. It could have been a Canadian with a sheep!

    Steve this site is great! I left a Kik group in March for the reasons you mentioned above.

    I started receiving dirty pics and propositions daily.....

    As you said LS people don't have a problem finding each other at the resort.

    Thanks again

    I am not exactly sure what a Kik group is, but after reading Steve's last response I guess I see how having a chat feature like that, which leads to be all about dirty stuff, doesn't make sense (and I wouldn't really want a feature that is like that).

    However, the one thing I will say as a different take on chat use is say I have a group of say 6 people, we all know each other from past trips, and we all talk to each other regularly. When it became time to book our upcoming trip, planning discussions (and just side regular conversations), had a better place being a part of a small group chat. I guess we could do the same with the PM feature of the site, but that seems a bit more formal and sometimes it's easy to go back and forth instantly in short form. The main thing why I think that type of chat has usefulness is the fact that we are talking about stuff that wouldn't be for the public. It's just our own mini group, with inside jokes and convos, things that really wouldn't have a place in a thread for everyone. And most of the convo would be more comparable to a group text message quickly going back and forth, and not like the "offical" posts that we still do put on here. None of this type of "group chatting" is about dirty pictures or explicit content (though it has found it's way in from time to time). If something like that was integrated to CCC, it would have been just as easy to keep it all under one platform.

    Just my opinion, obviously CCC is still near and dear to me, and where I log into first every morning while eating my breakfast at work. Facebook, or whatever else, isn't going to stop me from putting my most thorough and entertaining content here.

    For our group we ended up using Facebook Messaging and created a group chat - and not everyone in our group is LS...we're just using it for chatting about when people get in, what they're thinking of for theme nights, just fun chit-chat about our upcoming trip.

    Steve, well said.

    We've been on CCC since about 2006 after finding it after our first trip in 2005. It's been a great mechanism ever since. Yes, there is the other site and we are on that as well. Steve made mentioned years ago that he started that to remove lets say the LS from CCC and let it happen freely on the other site. It's bad enough I can imagine just keeping up with the trollers to add additional resources for them or the once and done members is kind of unnecessary. At first though sure if senior members were asking for it maybe, but then senior members are here and not necessarily there. Seriously it all can be done here. If you go meet people at TTR and wanna stay connected off CCC you can, we do it. But if I meet someone that wants to go check out TTR I send them to CCC where they go from there is up to them.

    There have been the "We hate Steve" groups but Steve is still here giving us this site to use and I bet some if not all of those groups are gone.

    Steve's best interest is CCC and his other endeavors. My wife is a painter and I manager her website, would I let people comment on her website how to find a different painter? just let that one sink in.

    Keep up the good work Steve!

    Typo.........we get it! And agree with what you said above. Few of the outside groups are advertised in the messaging area......at least that We've noticed. Some people want a different level of communication., and they are going to find a way to do it. I have no problem with that at all....BUT also agree and understand why Steve doesn't appreciate them advertising their product on HIS site

    I could t decide if I should respond to that post with a “like”, “agree”, “winner”, or a good ole, “LOL,” it seemed to have a little of everything in it. Almost like a Buffet....

    Our chat had
    very little if any sexual content and not all ours were lifestyle people either.. actually our kik group helped add 10 more people to the boobs cruise that were on the fence about going..
    I see Steves point but not all groups are like what was discribed..
    and I am like scuba steve I still login to ccc and cancunswingers.com almost every day.. a kik group will not take me away..
    ccc is a great site .... I comment CCC !!!!
