Re: BUY MY SHIT

Interesting, I wasn't aware of that possibility. Technical expertise would be very welcome if we get to that point. As for when we get to that point, I think we should move on this in mid-June. Does anyone think the administration should be given more time? I'm just saying that if we make him angry ...

Re: BUY MY SHIT

Okay, you're also a mod there. My preference for handling spam is to have many members who can shoot spam down. In my mind that's preferable to limiting spammers by delaying new user registrations.

Re: BUY MY SHIT

{2} - I admit I'm not entirely sure how to interpret this bit. To avoid confusion and to clear the way for a more sensible reply, I would ask for a clarification, if possible. I was replying to what seemed to be an understanding that we would for some time have two boards in parallel, with the succ...

Re: BUY MY SHIT

Likewise, a secondary site could prove useful were this one to somehow be rendered inoperative, if for no other reason than that the community would never really be able to re-assemble without a fallback point. Once when the old SMF board went down Eth made a thread on UQMF as a temporary SCDB, whi...

Re: BUY MY SHIT

Whilst, yes, the whole issue with registration *really* needs to be fixed, I don't think threatening to mass-exudos away from here is the right way to do it. Open to suggestions. Scott is still ignoring us. Is that acceptable? If not, what is "the right way to do it"? You shouldn't threaten to do s...

Re: BUY MY SHIT

What I've written has, I think, been poorly understood by all of you. It looks like you've not read what I've said properly, because your replies are mostly opinions that do not address the arguments I have put, which I think you will find, if you bother to read them, are quite sensible. Maybe a com...

Re: BUY MY SHIT

The problem isn't immediate, but clearly a long-term existential one. For example, as highlighted recently there was a user who couldn't reliably register either here or at UQMF. A community that doesn't regard that as a problem is consigning itself to a slow death. And a community that fails to add...

Re: BUY MY SHIT

I'm perplexed by this, and unhappy with this circumstance. I think Scott has had ample time to act, yet he hasn't. Seriously, serious problems are pointed out, he doesn't respond for a whole month, at which time he says he will act but another month later he hasn't. He said he'd post some kind of po...

Maybe a mash-up of the orbit music and Moonlight Sonata?

Re: The Small War cometh?

Shhh! Better not let Trump know there's a risk that the war he's about to start (wherever it is) might ever be called "Small".
