Edits, Deletions, and Blatant Abuses of Power

Post by Mav » Fri Feb 14, 2003 8:25 am

Check here for explanations of missing or edited posts... unless we're feeling cruel and want to leave you guessing where it went.


First order of business:

Second mIRC thread deleted, IRC thread posted first was kept. Sorry iMav, two minutes too late bro.






This blatant abuse of power was brought to you by billf (ok, I had to do it... :D )

Moved "Staircases" thread to the comic forum... because I can :D

I left a shadow of it, which means you can still see it from this forum for a bit... let's see how it works.

More changes

Post by Martin Blank » Fri Feb 14, 2003 5:12 pm

Word Association thread moved to Word Games (probably to be deleted, as it's now a duplicate post).

Person Above and Below You thread deleted (poster recreated in Word Games).

This thread locked so non-mods and non-admins cannot reply.

EDIT: SECOND Person Above and Below You thread deleted. KEEP THESE THINGS IN THE WORD GAMES FORUM, PEOPLE!
If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.

Avatar complaint thread moved to Rants and Raves

Post by Martin Blank » Fri Feb 14, 2003 9:06 pm

If you know it should be posted somewhere else, then post it there, or it will be moved and you will be shamed for all eternity.

Cleaned up this thread as it is, though for the record I left it unlocked so that people wouldn't start new threads to bitch about a certain decision.

Bandwidth considerations

Post by Martin Blank » Sun Feb 16, 2003 1:05 am

I know that many of you are still exploring, and having fun posting, and this is Good.

However...

One of the things we are watching is how some hacks affect the board's traffic, since we now pay for it directly. One of the things we've noticed is that some pages are displaying more than 100KB at a time. We expected this to happen from time to time, but it's spiking kind of higher than we thought it would. When I looked at the database, I found that some users had set their Topics per Page and Posts per Page settings amazingly high (200 in a few cases, and a couple of nuts went to 9999). I've since modified the database and profile pages to not accept more than 99 as a value. Those that had higher than 50 were adjusted back to lower values.

We're probably going to put code in place to prevent going over 50, but for now we're going to trust that you'll do the right thing and keep the numbers within reason yourself. Thanks for your understanding.

Removed poll about Eigher

It was a flame-fest. If you have a problem with a user, talk to a mod.

They were removed because they had been registered but not activated for one week AND had no posts. I'll be doing this roughly each day to try to make sure that the user database stays relatively clean. The easiest way to avoid this is to activate your account when you get the e-mail. If you have trouble with the e-mail, you can catch me by e-mail at martinblank@reallifeforums.com or by the various IM methods.
