That's pretty cold if so... the only respect I ever got (I know: haw haw) was from my seniority at the Delphi hosted MPC.
Is my honorable record there --dating back to 1995, BTW-- now just ... *expunged* ????

And how about my 25,000 posts - all of them large & witty essays, carefully crafted to insult the more respectable denzens and encouraging the pathetic one-visit dilletantes? Now discounted to naught?

No credit reducing to tears the likes of Donnie, Logik, Squid, that Swiss meatball Fizz -and even Hyperfish at one time- these now all forgotten?
For shame! Egalitarianism at its worst- on a parr with SCO and Rambus in its ethical stance.

And which of the 2 parallel fora do I now call Home?
And what of all the money I paid for the privilege of joining the PC Elite Club?

Nex you know they'll be sticking those loathesome smilie things in my posts just to be sure no one is offended by my posts -heaven forbid!
For shame, for shame! Look what depth your decadence has dragged us to, Saint! --Oh, I meant Philips: I must try to keep up with the times.

I know, I know!
My money was returned with a tip and a thoughtful note which read :

"Dearest Maggs,
We hope you won't make a fuss abt being refused entry. We know this club isn't all that Elite, but even so we all kicked in to make this $1.46 (Canadian) consolation gift since we knew a classy guy like you would take us up on it. Your call is very important to us, so please continue to hold."

I Think I posted on the old forums for about 5 years. What's really sad is that I never reached much seniority. Alot of my time in the old days was spent in the chatroom. BTW, where the hell is the chatroom here anyway?


I want to be recognized as more than a noob, and I want a chatroom!

Yeah, you have to start at the bottom.

I'll ask [Ch]ams to give you Avatar privileges when he gets back from molesting Tinkerbell.

Is that an acronym, or are you just making fun of the bolts in my neck?

"I'll ask [Ch]ams to give you Avatar privileges when he gets back from molesting Tinkerbell." -Ghost

============

I'm getting anxious now. I'm rebreathing from a baggie.
Why?
Two questions are tearing my ulcers apart so that I am vomiting blood and dumping black tarry melena:

1) Is this forum intended to replace and supplant the original Delphic MPC Comport? Does MPC ask us to migrate our rants and raves to here? Or are the 2 fora to run in parallel and compete with each other?

2) Is this forum formatted in that annoying cheesey way where a post can't be a reply to any but the last post in the thread without fancy quotes etc?

One of the few clever and *convenient* features of the Delphic method was the ability for posters to respond to *any* post in a thread , and to do so in a
natural and intuitive way.

The two will run in parallel, but this forum is the "Official" forum as far as the magazine is concerned. Most people are reading and posting at both. This forum is only intended to "replace" the Delphi forum "officially" for mag purposes and not in content.

Well, your post is a reply to the thread, not any particular message. Quoting is what makes it obvious who you intended to post to/about/etc. There is no notification associated with a post that is in particular to you (since nobody really posts to you) but you can subscribe to be notified whenever someone posts in a thread.

Personally, I think the Delphi format was easier to read and post in, but the decision to use the *BB format instead of a delphi clone was not mine to make :)

When is a fart, just a fart?


aside from being caused by chili and cheese burritos from Toxic Smell and bad cabbage that's been lying in the sun too long and now tastes like rhubarb . . . .without the good part

As far as the chatroom goes, it's being thought out still. The last word was that the comport's chat is still the chat to use. Besides, there's a mass of folks that are simply not trying to migrate here for block-headed reasons, so chat should be just as lively as ever:P

As far as being a n00b, I don't think it's a big deal if you drag something over from the old forum...like a name. It's kinda hard for me to tell who is who with some of the guys and gals starting with new names over hear:D

The post count was bunk for me to tell who was cool or not. Some were in since late 2003, but hunkered down in the LL so much, their count was 3 times what mine was, and I was a '99 entry.

Just start smacking people with a trout and get that credit back in line. They'll all soon learn you all over again!

Oh c'mon, I made that up!
I think the real tally is embedded in my profile there, but WTF. Still, I have witnessed w my own eyes threads where members openly aspired to high tallies, shamelessly using "Bumps" to add and also exhorted others to help them it their pathetic quest.

Gee- I really hope it was over 25,000 after all. I'd never need to take another Viagra (just to make urine) if only I could accomplish that grand feat.

Still a n00B rating... but who cares... the registered as member date usally means more.

Besides I have nothing to prove anymore... too old for that... just gives me a forum to read when I'm at work (one thats not filtered by the firewall)!!
