Seriously. I rarely ever call a place out by name, but I’m going to write about my experience, and my review and opinions of a place, and just let it go.
Tramps is a freelance club. When it first opened it seemed like a nice idea. There weren’t that many successful places to freelance. I dropped by a few times, rented some boards and got verified as a female by the owner. I never really spent a lot of time there, so I can’t really comment on what it’s actually like for visitors. I would usually come in for a few minutes, or just rent my adboards and leave.
At some point the owner started sending out reminders about adboards. At first I thought they were sent when your board was about to expire. So I went and paid my boards and realized I had plenty of time left. Then I started talking to other people that said they got “reminders” all the time. Or, some people who had never rented boards were getting IMs informing them of the boards available. So after I got another “reminder” I asked the owner to please stop sending them to me. They said they would remove me from the list, but also that they didn’t understand what the problem was. I said I didn’t want to be spammed with messages about boards. They argued that is was NOT spam, but still agreed to remove me from the list.
I received at least 2 more IMs about boards before finally, FINALLY, they stopped.
Then at some point in the last few months, the MASS FUCKING TELEPORTS STARTED. Everyone was getting them. People that rent boards, people that don’t. People that work for me, people in our VIP group. Everyone I know was complaining about them. There’s usually at least one a day, if not more. And you mute the account sending them [and the account is usually a few days to a few weeks old] and get a couple weeks of peace, maybe. Then a NEW one starts and you have to mute them too. No joke, I’ve muted at least 10 separate accounts by now that keep sending mass TPs to Tramps.
When I told the owner they were seriously getting annoying, they said they’d take me off the list. Where have I heard that before? So I told them that hey, if they keep it up, sooner or later they might get banned because so many people will be complaining. To which they replied, “IS THAT A THREAT?”.
No. It’s not. It’s just fact. I let them know that if I did receive another mass TP, I WOULD be reporting it, and any subsequent one I may get. I also said I would stop renting boards and doing business with them.
I wish everyone would just stop going there, and stop renting their adboards.
