Try not to be butthurt about a lack of signatures. Dennis does have a good reason as to why he removed the signature functionality from Halomaps.

There are quite a few such as nothing about sigs and many other things I can't point out right now
Other forms can be run as they see fit. This one is run as I see fit. Not everyone may like the rules or the lack of signatures but I make no pretense that I care. The forum posting guidelines just like the rules are nothing more than the common courtesy I expect when dealing with anyone and other forums expect without saying so. They are just spelled out in much more detail than in other forums.

I have been moderating discussion groups, first by email then the web since the early 70s and through experience have found that the younger the membership the more detailed the rules need to be explained. That is why the rules are spelled out in detail and why I posted forum posting guidelines. There are many users who are relatively new to posting in public forums and the guidelines I posted can be applied to wherever they go.


ps: signatures, due to massive and repeated abuse, are gone never to be seen again. Get over it.

The reason that I only posted about sigs is because that was on the top of my head and I was in a hurry.
Although yes the fact that it is ''spelled out'' probably does make a huge difference.

When was I complaining about the rules here? NEVER. And why should I care if I make you mad with my sigs? You don't have to read them you know.

Dennis, why not implicate a wordfilter instead of going around deleting the posts?

There is a word filter but people still go to great lengths to bypass the filter and that is not allowed. The rule clearly states that "if you or the forum software has to censor your words DO NOT USE THEM."

Can't you add to the filter the fact that we can't even censor?



Isn't that what Dennis is for? Or just not quite as much as I thought common sense...

Dennis is at a point I am working to achieve. A long time ago I attempted to message him so he could be my mentor for my senior project and give me advice on how to act on the cruel internet, but he did not respond. I assume the message was lost in the black hole and that he lots of messages all the time.

Nonetheless I honestly believe you can't go wrong with his methods. I once operated a forum (nowhere near as successful as this one) and I learned a few things as problems arose. It got to a point that I had disable avatars and signatures (though I never thought to have a approved set of images) and not allowing others to become high level members because I wanted to be able to have control over everything that happened. I even started trying (but failed (that is why I not longer operate a forum)) to write a bot that would send me texts of "suspected offender posts" and have me approve or remove them with a click of a button.

I still have much to learn and I hope that I can one day learn it from the one and only Dennis Powers, my hero.

:)

Mad respect man, mad respect.

Dennis started building BBS's in 85, so its only natural he has come to be annoyed by the children of the internet.

While this is an active forum, I would not say it is successful.
As far as I can tell, the forum generates no revenue, which would mean all the work that goes into it, is losing money.

Dennis has stated that halomaps is a free service and has shown a dislike towards advertisement, but doing so is not always a good plan.

If he makes enough through UXB to keep this hobby site up, then kudos to him, halomaps is a great opportunity for extra income though.

My forum had 70,000 active users, and with a single advertisement block, I was earning anywhere up to $2-4k a month, just from my hobby site.

What?

First you say that this website is potentially costing money.

Then you say simply adding a couple ads can easily reverse this issue toward your favor.

How about you man up and acknowledge that us annoying children are keeping your bank account full? If you claim this to be untrue, then I must ask you this: why aren't you? If we are really so annoying then why would it bother you that we might have to put up with cancerous advertisements? Your logic blows me away, unless you are OBVIOUSLY hiding something.

It is not surprising that you have no idea what it costs to supply over 32,458,984 Downloads that has consumed over 1,384.91 Terabytes of bandwidth. It is also not surprising that you do not yet grasp the concept or philanthropy. "Annoying children", as you call yourself, rarely do.

Oh Dennis. I do love these little conversations we have where you try to dodge the main question and act all superior in every way. Every time. Without fail. You're as predictable as me.

As you host multiple websites for your clients, you surely have an enormous bandwidth tap at your disposal already. Likely a fixed bandwidth rate. Slapping Halomaps.org onto that same bandwidth tap shouldn't cost you a single penny. On top of that, your ad revenue from this place even generates money for you. This is not philanthropy, this is a hobby that also generates some pocket change. Sure you have to put some manual effort into this, but we both you know get some sort of sick satisfaction out of abusing children.

I love how you tried to make it seem like I'm calling myself an annoying child. I simply restated what you called me earlier, out of sarcasm.

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that server space, bandwidth, etc, are not free.

Server space is irrelevant when it's his own servers. Hard drives aren't that expensive. The bandwidth, is explained above. If you can't comprehend what is going on here, I'd advise butting out of the conversation.
