New Post Re: Use it NOW!!! I'm skipping back and forth so I might me counted in both places.

Also, I just want to pad my posting totals over here since I'm currently the 79th best Met and want to be closer to Seavana should we move back here.

New Post Re: Use it NOW!!! I'd rather stay here, it's just a question of how the new posts might still be disappearing. Are they?

The new board looks great, but I don't know, this is home, you know?

New Post Re: Use it NOW!!! People don't really care about posting levels, do they?

I'm used to this board too but they inadequately protected the best part about it and screwed us all over. They really don't deserve our time or $$ anymore.

Frankly, I don't see how anyone can have any confidence in ezboard at this
point. There's more stuff gone each day instead of being restored.

Let's step back for a second. Does anyone really think that making sure that
everyone gets their posting levels back when trying to start a board up on the
fly with no knowledge of how to do it was or should have been a priority?

Or is it a priority that the posting levels stay current instead of historic?

Or is it a priority it doesn't look like the old place?

No.

The priority was to make sure it was functional and we had a place to post
where posts don't disappear and if this server explodes tonight while we sleep,
a couple of people have a back-up that can be used to start a new board. As it
turns out, I was unaware until today just how much control we have over this
new board and with the help some of your cpf brothers and with our learning what
makes the joint tick ... this place has tons more potential than you might be im-
agining while ezboard appears to be, at the risk of ripping off the original manager,
"dead at the present time"

So there.

Take it as a low priority and this is no time for tsks. Be a leader, cooby ...
and show some patience. We got a functional place within a couple of
days and there's way too much whining and complaining. I don't need the
aggravation on top of a large to-do list. I can deal with to-dos, I don't res-
pond well to aggravation.

No whining and complaining here - I don't have to keep loggin gin here, and I don't have the freaking buy me page when I do log in.

This beats ez-board any day.

I don't think that posting levels are the most important thing to posting, but they are fun to keep track of and to see next to your posts. If they don't mean anything why have you guys spent millions of hours calculating them?

KC
Jun 07 2005 09:27 AM

It's a priority thing, and the posting levels restoration is being looked into.
My point is the board has been up for three days and there's been a lot
of needless complaint over something that is a low priority. I can't make
my stance on this any clearer.

Not arguing the priority levels.

After rereading I realized that I'm arguing against a strawman. I thought someone had posted that posting levels had no importance at all.

Okay, everybody cool out. I know we're all frazzled by the move, and losing a lot of history. Let's do as much as we can to save it, and look forward.

(As much as I loved moving up the ranks on my posting level, part of the fun for me is finding pictures of all these random guys I've never heard of, or at least a reasonable takeoff of their names. So I don't really care where I am on the list right now.)

Sorry I haven't done much saving over there; every time I pop over there to try, it's running too slow for my patience (which is already thin on this stupid house thing). I'll keep popping over when I get time.
