Thanks for the suggestion, I'll be considering it. I set up a demo and it looks good.<br><br>Otherwise, all the forums are copied over except for this one. Seems to have gone okay so far.<br><br>Since there will be no 20-page limit on the new platform (whichever it is), and because we're big enough now, I'll be unlocking the archives to make them subject-indexed forums so members can post to them, in addition to general discussion, data dump and lounge (formerly parlour). <p></p><i></i>

$60 more bucks for the good stuff..I know the rest of the regulars here can easily match the balance at this point even if they just contributed five bucks each. <p>____________________<br>Wehret den Anfängen</p><i></i>

count me in for 10 bucks

Postby darkbeforedawn » Sun Nov 05, 2006 11:42 pm

But I will have to actually use paypal (haven't yet done this) and will have to find out how to. Can't be that hard...right? <p></p><i></i>

PayPal's easy to set up. It's also a nice thing to have, for shopping on eBay or a lot of other places online. <p></p><i></i>

Stick with what you know Jeff, don't let the devils tease with their dollars. Ask why they want you there?<br><br>It looks like the move is going well. Any date in mind for a big switchover? And would it make it easier if we all shut up here for a while?<br><br>I'm hanging fire for now to watch the transition rather than get caught in the inevitable confusion that follows.<br><br>Good Luck Wells<br><br>See You On The Other Side <p></p><i></i>

I already have had problems with it. I set an (unknown) setting on my profile and now all I see is a black screen and a few icons, but no words and drop down boxes hold dashes instead of normal characters. So...I had to re register with a new ID. Not happy. <p></p><i></i>

Literally, in my first hour as Moderator, I found myself watching countless 'guests' reading member PM's as well as monitoring/reading sections of the forum that were invisible to everyone but the highest raking moderators. The infiltrators even added to the thread view counts by doing so. I immediately suspected this betrayed the owner of the site as a dirty dog, because he deliberately obfuscated the issue if not outright ignored it against <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>LOUD</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--> protests from myself and his co-Admin, who was powerless to stop what was happeningwithout the Boss' cooperation.<br><br>His later actions heavily reinforced my suspicions.<br><br>My point in spending money is for one purpose, and one purpose only: Security, that comes with guaranteed Customer Support unobtainable with freware code.<br><br>This isn't a @#%$ Candy-Land; Jeff's going to need the <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>safest</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--> forum he can get his hands on, bar none, and if I can halp fascilitate that, I'll pay for the entire goddamned license fee myself.

It also has a Support System that is unmatched in even an open sourse project like freeware PHPbb. Are you not aware that if someone gets a backdoor into his forum they literally can install augmented malicious code into the forum software iitself?

While I suggsted PHPbb, I never suggested he use the freeware versions, myself, if I recall, due to my extremely frusrating experiences using CTC's free PHPbb board of which Jeff himself has been long aware of. I have an entire moderator team of <!--EZCODE ITALIC START--><em>DECENT</em><!--EZCODE ITALIC END--> and <!--EZCODE ITALIC START--><em>REAL</em><!--EZCODE ITALIC END--> people that <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>all</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--> resigned within 12 hours to corroborate the experience.<br><br>The system was alledgedly 'hacked' by snatching his browser cookies from a SEPERATE machine, which idiotically held the l/p for Head Admin at CTC.<br><br>They got inside and destroyed up to 10,000 significant and very well targeted posts by only <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>THREE</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--> individuals within one @#%$ hour while I was getting Married, who coicidentally, had the heaviest observations and data against the 'NWO', 'Illuminati', or whatever the Hell it is that THEY want you to call it..<br><br>Nothing in this life is free, and if I know Mr Wells like I feel I do, he'll remain the new forum's <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>ONLY</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--> moderator, which while wholley appropriate, also pries him continously away from his own very important research.<br><br>I want him to have <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>The Best</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END-->, hands down, so he can more effectively work on things that are more important than moderating a forum and defending it from effortless attacks a commercial version has a much greater potential to mitigate.<br><br>Why would you not wish to see him have the best security he can get his hands on?

just to be clear, et, that was no knock at all against your following the chemtrail information. i may not be able to stop them doing whatever they're up to with that, but no way do i lay down and just let them own my skies and yours. let 'em fly through my paint.<br><br>be well and be strong and cheers to you, too.<br><br>as for what jeff ultimately decides, if he needs funds to upgrade, i'm glad to do what little i can. knowing nothing about the tech stuff, i can only say i think it's great when you who do know, share those options with him. <p></p><i></i>
