Sorry if this has been said but I don't feel like reading 3 pages right now...

Is there a way to have notifications when someone responds to our posts?

you have to click the notify me of replies box when making or editing the post.  It's email based.

Suggestion:

Break the "General discussion" into two sections.  One for "big picture" philosophical type typics that Michael would enjoy, and another for frivolous nonsense that Kimmy would enjoy.

I like it.

Also - now that we have higher levels of activity here, ie. dozens of posts per day rather than single digits, maybe the 'Recent Posts' list could be expanded to 20 or 50 ?  I find it cumbersome to find what has happened if I check out for 12 hours or so.

For small forums, I generally don't like the idea of subdividing things up more than they really need to be. Is there a good reason these topics can't co-exist side-by-side as portrait of the human condition? heh

Not sure if you guys want to here from Greg from the other forum but i told him i would relay a message from him. he seems interested in improving the Other site, he has already got rid of hot enough, and is will to make other changes to bring back the old posters such as yourselfs. .......below is Gregs comments...he has set up a private posting room to discuss anything about the forum.

Ok, I absolutely do not want to lose more people, and I'd like a few of those posters to return.

I just need a few level headed members who can provide feedback to me on things that are particularly troublesome in the forums.

How about this... I'll start a private club and then we can invite some of these disgruntled members (the one's that have left) to come into the club and share their thoughts with me privately.

Some folks, particularly those that have left, think I don't care what they think... they're wrong.  I want to make this forum a welcoming place for everyone, it's just that whenever there was a particular thread that was started by someone who was pissed off about something (another poster, moderation action, etc) it almost always devolved into a negative shit show - with little valuable that I can actually act on.

If you could relay  that message back to those you've been in contact with, I'd really appreciate it.

as this appears in 2 separate threads, I'll take the liberty of adding my reply to both:

bullshyte! Thread after thread included hundreds of posts from dozens of MLW members raising concerns - absentee landlord "Greg" chose to ignore those threads; chose to rely on the continuing failed moderation that was at the heart of why many, many posters left MLW... some now present here. All the feedback he presumes to ask for now is present in those threads. Comments from some of the current members here who still, on occasion check in at MLW, suggest nothing has changed in terms of the failed ChasMan moderation. Get stuffed Greg.

I rarely post there...  and only to point out the idiocy going on there.

No way would I abandon this place to go back to that nonsense.   The Mod is a conspiracy nut...  the place has rightwing whackos and conspiracy nuts running the asylum...  no thanks.    That doesn’t make for a good forum.

I like Fluff topics, too.   ;D

I don't even mind when a topic turns Fluffy for a couple pages.

My suggestion would be to figure out how to stop morons from posting enormous freaking graphics to try to make up for their poor debating skills.
