it`s not. i`m not trying to be a dick, but spam in forums slows down my servers.
And yes, the old OF`s turned in to spammiong grounds.
hehenerd, you were banned too?
I woudn`t realy called it harsh...banning me for life would be harsh. But yeah...things...got out of hand,. That=`s what happenes when you are on a old forum which normally isn`t posted on...or seems like it`s nor watched on a regular basis.
So, it was well deserved.
So as I said, a "You are benned/temperorilly suspednded" email would be nice, which would include telling us for how long.
Can`t wait to see your solution Fancylad.
Itried that once - it`s more messy than it is fun, but it is fun!
Sort of explains my feelings on the new comments thing!
Anyway, since davymid asked us to keep coming up with suggestions, I do have one. However, it is not comment related in any way.
Well, you know how at the top of the page there are the little tabs (Latest, Popular, Most Bookmarked, etc.)? I think it would be good to add "Archive". So, you can write dates (March 1st, March 2nd, etc.) and put in all the posts that were up that day.That way, a person that misses a day, a week, or even a month can go to Archive and see what they missed instead of going to page 28 and having to refresh in case a new post pushed a post from the bottom of the last page to the top of the next page.
I have had to do this SEVERAL times now and I find it to be annoying.

Yeah I`m in a pissy mood. F off.
That is a splendid idea, and not as difficult to facilitate as you might think.
Remember there was a discussion some time ago about changing the site`s colour scheme (to a resounding "NO" from the masses) and one voice on the forums (sorry, can`t remember who) spoke up with the wonderful idea of making it user-controlled, so they could choose any colour scheme, or stick with "IAB Classic". The same could be done for comments.
Keep coming with suggestions, pet peeves, ideas, and bugs (try to keep it helpful/constructive rather than b*tch for the sake of it!), fellow IABers. This is the chance for your voice to be heard, Fancy said he will be checking this thread and writing things down!
ranty? Is that a word? Sorry, I just came back from a pep rally where one of the cheerleaders had the moves and facial expressions that make Sharon Stone look like Shirley Temple...
I know it`s change. I`ve been wanting change on IAB for a long time. And we are still in the midst of change, I`m just giving my two cents.
For non-logged in people, you can show the comment system however you want.
I know this may seem like a lot to ask for (Sorry...) but don`t you want everyone to be happy? * hopeful smile *
Opie, once again, its change. Think about it, this is a little more organized...and first posters dont get there glory this way. First comments first, but as more come in they move down, and late users still are noticed. As for quoting, just use copy and past like we always have. And for remembering where you posted, well its not that difficult, and with the chat on its way actually talking to eachother on the forums wont be as used
I can`t just know what page I was on before, or what page I had a discussion with someone before, I have to search for it.
That, and the fact that if we`re doing it like this (Youtube way) then we might as well be able to quote and reply to each other. With an actual quote button.
Anything new will take time to settle in, we can`t say that this is a bad system yet, just users were used to the old way and thats what they know. Sometimes change can be shocking, but in the end it can be great
I agree, Kasu-Chan. I was one of the most outspoken opponents of the new system when it first came out, but now I kinda like it (sure some kinks need ironed out, but the format works). Personally, I think it encourages people to post as everyone has a chance for their comment to be read. A lot of users were disinclined to comment on older threads because no-one would ever read them. I think the new format fixes that. Just my opinion though.
Give this girl a cookie
Is that necessarily a good thing?
a.k.a the site is laggy due to updates
Don`t worry, I`m sure as Fancylad throws more bananas at his pet developers, these little kinks will get ironed out...
No offence xox
Not...for..me Dainty, same as always...
answers coming in e-mail, 5 minutes
BUT OH MY GOD YAY FOR HAVING THE FIRST 5 IN THE REGULAR COMMENTS SECTION!
...I love you Fancy.
AND HOLY CRAP, REAL FORUMS AND A CHAT? REALLY!?
That`s why you do what I just did
Be still my twisted heart of darkness.
This is why I never read more than the first 10 comments on YouTube videos.
I like up-down better than down-up.
Probably for lurking and apmming the IAB is Experiencing Technical Difficulties forum.
Well not spamming...well...multi-posting.
That it Fancylad?
I say, clickin=g comments button takes you to your last post,
Anyways this should be good for the IAB future
and who really reads youtube comments anyway?

No and no.

The comments still suck. It was better the way it was before, and it was easier to follow. Now you have scroll through pages to get to the first posts and read them BACKWARDS. Seriously, no one else (that has a brain) does this. MySpace blogs, ANY blogs, will show the first comments first, not the most recent ones.
This is just annoying and I don`t read them anymore.

We was banned and the forum went bye-bye.
fancylad- can you have a computer enerated email for bannings/suspensions please?
the new comment system is not getting on anyones nerves
im glad you`re so manly you can ` fight for what you want` over a comment system on a website. good cause that
email me a new link and poo
You want me to strike...and make poor Fancylad go bankrupted and end up homeless?
Say Fancy, how much is each post worth?
Or at least how does it work? The hits/posts= revenue ststem?
nice one fancy
me likey the pic
Dude, I know that game. What you do is smash the onion on the smallest midgets head. Then when they all start crying, poke their eyes out with the paperclip. After they are all blinded, they will run around, just dodge them until the biggest one drops the key.
also TRUE in the case...*
which just brings me to something i forgot: correcting typos.
nomotivatn: you`re supposed to give the onion to the midgets. they all start fighting over it and in the midst of battle, you lash all their legs together using the paperclip. then use the result as a sort of flail.
What about the photo makes it photoshopped?
This is just annoying and I don`t read them anymore.
Lol, thanks for the update!
