Monday, March 23I just wanted to put out a warning to any of you myspace users out there that may think you have the Burnside Skatepark on your friends list, WE HAVE NO MYSPACE PAGE!
There is a Burnside myspace page (http://www.myspace.com/burnsidesk8park) that some unknown person has had for quite some time, but when I asked who it was, I was told that it didn't matter. That it was for the park. Well, that's all good and fine, right? But I just noticed that there have been some new things added that I wanted to bring to everybody's attention.
DO NOT GIVE MONEY TO THE BURNSIDE SKATEPARK MYSPACE. I check the page from time to time to see what they're doing and I noticed this statement, "You can deposit money into burnside skatepark fund to film documentaries, videos and movies." We, the Burnside Skatepark, do not know who runs it and have no idea where the money would go. The person who runs it has never asked us for permission nor have they ever donated anything to the park. Also, no money donated to the Burnside Skatepark fund is used in the making of any films or documentaries. All of the donations to the Burnside Skatepark fund (the Paypal link goes directly to the fund) are put directly into the skatepark itself, including concrete, paint, and any other construction type material we may need to maintain or improve the skatepark. NO donations are used for anything else. Period.
Whoever runs that page takes things I write here and adds them there. I do not run that page. Really, I don't care that they do that, I just want to make it very clear that we have no idea who it is, so use caution. And if you are the owner of that page, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com . Same goes to anyone that may have questions.
Sorry if I seem to have went off on a rant here, but I don't want anybody to feel that we are doing anything other than what I say we are.
That's it. Go skate!
