Regarding actions of moderators and administrators:

The forum is no place to air out your opinion or be judgmental of our staff and its capabilities.

All BKF users agree not to abuse or mistreat moderators or administrators. It is against BKF rules to post any information regarding bans or any other action taken by a member of the moderating or administrative team. If you wish to discuss bans or warnings please do so via PM. To place a complaint against a moderator, send a PM to a super moderator. All Moderators are equal, any decision made by a moderator must be adhered to. If a moderator tells you something you do not like, do not go to another moderator looking for a different answer. If you are caught doing this you will be banned. The moderators work as a team and respect the decisions made by their peers and will help enforce them unless an administrator tells them differently.
If you have an issue with how the forum is run, then notify one of our administrator and we will look into the situation. We have in the past and still do appreciate any input that you offer this forum. But critical input and/or judgmental postings towards the staff will result in you getting banned.

Should you find a thread offensive or out of line, then notify a Mod in a PM so they can evaluate the situation and do the action deemed necessary.

          Well, here's the update...........atty was late, we all [8 of us] were automatically moved to Oct 7, no explanation, just "It is what it is...........", kind of sux, because I'm going to be out of town for work on the 7th, UST didn't seem to care so we're trying to work out an acceptable solution. For what it's worth though, no creditors were present, we're pretty sure they won't be there at the next one, so best I can guess is that we're OK, just may have to wait a little longer....


          • #6
            Wow - so because atty is late, the clients get "punished." He owes all of you - at the very least - an apology!!!


            • #7
              Aw jeez. Sorry to hear. Hope he at least got a little slap on the wrist.
              Keep us posted.

              Keep On Smilin'


              • #8
                Atty says things are OK, just a little delayed, as I said earlier no creditors present, I understand they can't be notified of the continuance by the UST, only me [like that's going to happen], so in the end, just going to have to make that drive again and get wrapped up before xmas........


                • #9
                  I'm not sure I understand. Was it that the attorney (for all eight of you) late, or was it that the trustee was late?

                  Okay. I reread before posting this. So your attorney was late, and the meeting rest for you all. I know that you said you will be out of town that day. Please assure me that you will be IN town and going to your 341.

                    Well, I will be here for the 341, but we'll have to re-reschedule, on Oct 7 I'll be out of town for work, well I'll be in the air and landing approx 11:30 that night. So the atty is putting something together and will let me know first part of this week......


                    • #11

                      • #12
                        OK, re-scheduled for 10/14 3:30P, I'll be back in town, and maybe I should offer to pick up atty to get him there on time.............


                        • #13
                          Sorry to have been away, finally got thru the 341 10/14, and as I've seen here before, it actually took longer to find a parking spot than we were in front of the trustee [7 min]. The only strange thing she asked was if we had ever challenged the valuation of our property, as it seemed pretty low. Figured by then they were throwing things up, hoping something would stick. Any way we're done, at least we hope so, thanx for all the great info...........
