I hate it when there`s a spamming of links, cause my internet is slow so I never have time to go through them all, and load all the videos. (I check pretty much every day, so it adds up on me)..

i think the reason they`re asking is because everyone is complaining about the reposts. If they only do ten over the 6 hours they will probably be better posts and there will be fewer reposts. You people are too impatient.

Why do people complain about the language filter? It`s not like we don`t know what you mean when you say, "fu.ck" and it comes up "drat". The language filter is more funny that irritating.

You know, that brings up a good point, TKD. How come all the videos and pictures posted here can have swear words and durogitory remarks but we, the loyal users of IAB have to be censored? What the drat kind of dratin` poo is that? We can watch some old wrinkled dude go off on a skateboarder but we can`t say F, U. C-K?

Davymid: There`s a ton of different Buddhas but generally the one who`s all about balance and moderation in all things.

I like the repost filter suggestion too.

God, just imagine if we ever had an IAB movie, we`d have to censor everything to drat, not a nice person, this is a cool video...actually that gives me an idea...

( i suggested that idea a long time ago >O but with "i`m a douchebag")

but haha how funny will it be the first time someone discovers that filter? it would also be great if it could somehow trigger the delete button to disappear, or have the mods be able to lock them in once they see someone used it.

> the Bible - most of the others are distinctly described as hookers/whores
Oh and Mary wasn`t? "No dearest Joseph, I didn`t cheat on you... um... a man... no wait, a ghost... came in the middle of the night... and had sex with me... but I`m still a virgin don`t worry... by the way I`m pregnant..."

Its a good thing I have Faith or that would sound ridiculous even to me. Seriously, although the Bible DOES portray most of its women badly, to be fair the entire Song of Solomon is an erotic poem about the worship of the female form and character, marriage and love, etc.

Fancy, can you add the word "repost" to the list of words that IAB filters out? Have the system replace "repost" with "i`m an anally-retentive whiner" or something?

Sorry about the stereotype, Opie. I know for a fact your name`s not Mary, so that label is wrong in at least 50% of it`s claims. And the Bible isn`t exactly dripping in female characters to choose from, most of the others are distinctly described as hookers/whores. Limited choice, you know?

And don`t be deceived that IAB is an actual Democracy, it`s more like a religious Theocracy...

-Fancylad is God.
-Opie is the Virgin Mary.
-Hehehenerd is Judas, repentant and forgiven of his sins.
-Primetime is the Holy Spirit, vengeful yet bounteous and fair.
-Maddog is the Star of Bethlehem, only seen on rare occasions.
- And me? I`m the f*cking Pope.

Let me put this in simpler terms for you all:

Say...I have 24 apples, and I need to eat them all in one day, or I die. Now, I can eat them once an hour throughout the 24 hour period, or I can eat 6 every 6 hours. Now do i take my time and saver them, or do I shove it in and fill myself up?

Kinda like those alcoholimeters some cars need to have so the driver is sober while driving, quick_sand should get one, so her computer will only turn on when she is taking her meds.

davymid, I think all of those are sorely needed, but another option would be to hook up about 10,000 volts to her ! key and activate it any time she hits it more than once.

On another note, I`d like to see a new Poll:

Should user quick_sand8:

1) Increase the dosage of her meds, and make sure she takes them.
2) Only have her straightjacket removed at predetermined times of day
3) Have her internet connection only enabled under certain condtions (e.g. not currently frothing at the mouth)

Dragon if you miss one day, there are going to be the same number of links.

The same number of links gets accepted, people. That`s not changing. WHEN they show up on the front page changes.

WHEN. NOT HOW MANY.

I`d have to say one every 30-40 minutes. I find myself very impatient, so a steady flow is good.

Also I`ve been meaning to ask:

Republic: 1. a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by representatives chosen directly or indirectly by them.

Democracy: 1. government by the people; a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.

Aren`t we a Republic? Each state has a rep so every state has an equal say?

I like the idea of a new link every 30-45 minutes personally. Means everyone gets to participate in a new link. Also, makes it more interesting to have IAB left open and when a new link comes in I go "Oooh, new link, must check it out!". Otherwise I`d just check back once every 6 hours to see a bunch of new links.

Just my opinion though. That`s why it`s a poll, people!

to answer the question, it works out to about the same amount of links -- 35 to 40.

[quote]Dragon, the same amount of new links are accepted. It`s just the matter of when they are sent in. The options are both estimates.[/quote] Wow, then I just suck at math today.

I chose ten per six hours. Otherwise, if you miss just one day, all of a sudden there`s two pages of new stuff that you haven`t seen. If that makes sense.

Mitch, I understand. And it`s more of a preference thing. Some people like big updates not as frequently, and others like some ones more frequently. Logically and only logically, you would be right (and I voted for the first one).

I just sort of did it. If my brain-dead calculations are correct, in the span of one day:
10 links per six hours = 40 links per day.
1 or 2 links per 30-45 minutes = About 48 links a day.
... or I could be dead wrong on that last one...

I don`t quite get this question. I mean, either way, why wouldn`t I vote for the first option? If I want more frequent links then I check the first one and if I only check the site every 6 hours or so then having 2 links every 30 minutes will still give me as many links as the second option in 6 hours...does anybody understand what I`m saying?

1 every 30 minutes VS. 12 every 6 hours.
30 min x 12 = 6 hours (not 60, my bad)

1 x 12 = 12

They are even.
