New Forum Desires.

Recommended Posts

The new forum is very nearly complete. The new davidicke.com will go live today and so all focus then moves to getting the new forum live. 

 

New webmaster has asked me if there are any functions that are important to you guys. 

 

If you have anything you really want the new forum to be able to do, drop it in here and I'll pass it on. He reckons it can all be implemented and live by the end of the week, so hopefully that will be a nice bit of news for everyone, after what has been a complete ball ache few weeks.

@GarethIckeI know you must both be busy with other things, but it would be really great if you and Jaymie could get more involved with the forum. As a bonus, it would also be super if your dad could join in discussions here too 😁

 

Functionality-wise, I don't really have any suggestions to offer, but being able to embed Bitchute videos would be good.

Signatures.  Ability to edit a minimum of 24 hours from posting (if not indefinitely).

That gives someone the option of completely messing a thread up at any time ??

The ability to edit only our own posts dear.  Like on reddit, or at least two other boards I belong to.  It helps to be able to spot and fix a typo or grammatical errors, fix pictures, etc.

l realise you meant your own posts.
Typos and grammar aren't THAT important, are they ?
Someone could cleverly change the whole context of a thread if they were so inclined, with unlimited time and fallouts, personal hacks etc..

An hour or two is fine by me.
Anything serious to change can be done by Mods.

 Thanks for all the time and effort put in to sort things out.

 

Could there be an appropriately named forum right at the bottom of a long list of forums where FE topics/posts can be hygenically disposed of  placed  using admin tongs tools. :classic_smile:

Well, if reddit or the two other boards I belong to felt that way, I suppose they wouldn't let a person edit at any time either.  I suppose we're to assume that's what people would do, like you assume.

 

I haven't seen it happen, and all 3 venues we can also delete posts any time we wish (I have seen people delete posts and have deleted my own time to time).

 

It all comes down to what you think of people I guess, and if that's the low opinion you have of them, then yes, treat them like children and imbeciles.

 

I know a couple pictures I had hosted in my Hopi thread became unhosted when the image host died or went out of business and I would have loved to edit that post and put them up again.

And yes, typos, grammar, sentence structure and broken pictures are all important to me to be quite honest.  Sometimes my brain isn't quite processing when I make a post then I'll think of a better way I might have put something and want to modify it so it is easier to comprehend. I'm a old woman, man, it's work sometimes to write sensibly.

lt's not that.
l'm looking at worst case scenario. Can you not put yourself in the place of someone not genuine ? Can you not see how that idea could be miss-used ?
No offence meant.
Some people can be slippery b'stards.
Threads should stay as they form.
lf a photo or picture becomes unavailable then quote your own post in the thread and add photos.

That's been covered before.
Sock accounts could give emphasis and credit in the wrong places.
Again, worst case scenario..
From 10 to 20 maybe ?
Compromise :classic_tongue:

I know what you mean - someone who's losing an argument can go back and change their earlier post to put a different spin on the thread. 😁

Actually, there is a 4th venue, a Chinese gadget forum, where people argue incessantly and I've seen people accuse other people of changing their posts.  But that is there and they have problems all the time because all they do is argue, argue, and argue.

 

Anyhow, it is my request and if the past is any indicator I'm sure editing will be limited/restricted and you won't have to worry yourself. 

 

I'm requesting because that is what this thread is for and if you don't ask, you know the answer's no.

 

Good day.

From a consideration of moderation ....

 

I would have liked for all newly registered accounts to NOT be able to post until they have answered three questions.

That the account is NOT active to post until allowed, either by admin or a mod.

 

The concept of this is simply to stop any 'spam' in it's tracks .... stop any 'bots' .... stop any 'shills' .... and to consider the 'want' or 'reason' for someone making an account?

 

It also means that the email address MUST be a real account and not just a 'throwaway'!

It must be real and the newly joining member must also be real .... to answer the emailed questions.

 

It can be simple questions ....

  1. Do you consider that 911 was accomplished as is told by your government?
  2. Is there more to 'you' than just the 'body' or is that it and you die?
  3. Why do you wish to post on this forum?

Now, yes, it means more work for either admin or/and mods .... But it would so much help :)

For me .... on the requirement of 'editing' .... one hour is well enough and stops any deceptive 'later' changes.

 

Mods are there to change any fuck ups .... but your posts should stand.
