  1. 1. Do you want to see some of the threads combined?



Recommended Posts

I'd like to see alot of the "spam" hiding posts combined. Instead of posting a new thread, which just adds more to rummage thru, find a worthwhile thread and post there. It will still lower the spam and keeps the good threads available without adding extra threads. JMO

I'd rather have the search and new posts back....but combining will help some./QUOTE]

 

It'd be nice to have the search, new posts and the view all posts in our profiles. I forget sometimes where

I post and can't find my way back to some. LOL I'm getting old.

 

Whatever you want to do Sir! Be fine with me.

If they refuse to place adds in the proper place then they should be barred from the site. IMO

i feel as if there are only so many topics to cover, if they die off an re-appear its a way of breathing new life into the topic. i know i wont go through a old topics 59 comments. also i feel a good way to battle the spam would be to give some more people limited mod powers that are known to be trustworthy like regulator5 and tinderwolf, just an idea....

I recently found this site and my first impression of it was that it is HUGE, but I don't see any forums that I think would benefit us - the readers and contributors - if they were combined. We live in a complicated world, and our needs, abilities and options are just as diverse. Could you guys give me examples of forums you think could/should be combined?

 

A number of threads are out of place - their topic has a specific forum but the poster put it in some other section, those threads need to be moved. And the spam posts take up a lot of room - why aren't the spam posts moved to the Threads To Be Deleted forum?? And why does this site have so much spam in the first place? What are other forums doing that prevents spammers from posting?

 

Yes, the SEARCH function needs to be fixed!! Additionally, when I find a poster who is particularly knowledgeable or I like the way they think I go to their profile to search for other posts they have made ... and THAT search function is also broken! (Interestingly, rayz you are one of those people :)

 

By going through posts and profiles I've figured out that there was some sort of administrative conflict last May, apparently with the result that this site is now under-managed. This site (the PEOPLE who post to share their knowledge :) is an invaluable resource and we need to take care of it - resist letting it deteriorate like everything else that created the SHTF and EOTWAWKI mindsets in the first place!!!

 

My opinion summarized:

 

1) Fix the SEARCH functions.

2) Move spam to the Threads To Be Deleted forum.

3) Move out-of-place threads to their correct location.

4) Increase and/or change the administration and/or number of forum moderators to carry out the above. (There IS a problem, I don't know what it is so can't really suggest a solution.)

 

To put my money (time :) where my mouth is I volunteer to help delete spam or something *simple* - when I had my own business I created a web site for it so know they can be kinda complicated, but I am a quick learner.

 

I will postpone casting my vote until getting more information on what threads can be combined, and any other feedback.

I know this is going to sound a little ‘brown nosed’, but what is easier for the moderators? However, if you don’t care about what is easiest for you, I believe that combing ‘stuff’ is a good idea especially because the ‘search’ function is currently defective. I know I find myself checking the same places every time rather than reading the entire board. I miss the ‘new post’ feature because it saved time when looking for the newest posts.

 

But no matter what happens, I am appreciative of the board’s owners and moderators for providing us with a place to meet and exchange ideas.

 

Brown-nosing has ended. We now return you to your normally scheduled programming.

Parts, they can’t be stopped because they change their identities and addresses all the time. It’s like a dog chasing his tail. He might catch it once but the damned thing keeps coming back. If the moderators could stop the spammers, they would. We need to ignore them or laugh at them.

Thanks, coastie.

For what it is worth, I delete them as soon as possible but I do not object to the "bump" threads if they help you guys. I complain but I don't object.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
