It's Another I-A-B Celebration And For All Of August, You Call The Posts

Submitted by: fancylad 7 months ago Lifestyle
i-a-b-celebration-rina

Hey I-A-B,

We're doing something a little special for the month of August!

In honor of celebrating one year of independence, we're gonna conduct a month-long experiment which makes you the editor-at-large (which is something I've always wanted to do with I-A-B anyway).

If you read my first post the day we relaunched, the whole idea was to get the I-A-B community to become editors-at-large. It's sort of like that now, but now, instead of me giving final edit, your articles will now go live when you hit the submission button.

That means the mic is yours, but that also means the microscope will be on you -- all of your typos, grammatical errors, and crazy opinions will be out there for the world to see so be somewhat responsible.

The process is simple: Just click on the Submission page, follow the simple steps, hit submit and bam -- your article's live. Look for other new feature, too -- a leaderboard which will rank I-A-B article submitters by page views.

Any questions, ask away -- I'll answer everything in the thread below.

XOXO, Fancy

Seems some spammer has found a way of getting around the insane recaptcha challenge. The only thing the anti-bot thing does is annoy real people, it doesn't stop spammers as evidenced by all the 'ost recovery' and other spam posts this morning.

Last night it happend for about an hour streight and it would even take me to the "Prove Youre not a robot page even when I tried to log in.

HOW TO POST new material is pretty easy: Make a Headline (it appears on the front page, this one's headline is Another I-A-B Celebration...) in the top field. Next is some text that shows up on the front page (Huge announcement...) Then the largest box is where you paste your link, leave a blank line, write what shows up on the post-page (Hey I-A-B...) (This would be easier with paragraphs, lolz!) Next Step: Pick a category (it doesn't actually show up any longer, no worries but it is required) Next: Write your e-mail address twice (scroll down past those optional fields) and then click the "Capta" button to show you aren't a robot. Then check it for spelling! Some field do NOT allow the spellchecker! And hit Submit. >>> It's so easy, a cat can do it! :->

Oh yeah, first go to the Submissions page, the link is on top, beside the "Leaderbored"... The big box where the main link & text goes? It DOES allow paragraphs, and you can put secondary links there too. I forget if you can just paste them or need to use the page I linked a few comments up: This Page Here Do NOT use this for you main post's link! That is just a straight paste eh? No further html required, but leave a space or two after it.

A tip for posting links in the submission page: your text to show as a hyperlink text that will appear goes here to finish. This is basic html but apparently works on I-A-B for the submission page.

Zig, I'm sorta relatively close to Riverside. My brother lives in Rancho Cucamonga (although he calls is "Alta Loma") so I'm in that area every now and then. Also, I grew up in San Dimas so I'm familiar with the area. Haven't been that deep into Riverside in a few years though.

The part near Riverside was decommissioned by the AF and used for live fire drills before Bush invaded Iraq, due to its resemblence to many towns in Iraq. They actually shown my house on the TV just as it was hit by a morter. It's true you can't go home again. It's the second home I lived in that I know of was destroyed. The other was featured on a docunentary about the Alaskan Earthquake, although my house wasnt actually shown, the lot of rubble where it once stood, was shown.

Hey all, I've been away from stable wi-fi since we turned the keys over to you guys. When I get home in about 40 hours, I'll have driven close to 5,000 miles all over America (I started in Long Beach, Ca an looped to Minneapolis and back). I'm currently at a Ruby Tuesday's with wi-fi and checking in, answering questions in this thread. In short, it was my bad timing to take some time off during our month-long experiment which is taking place so Sunny and I can see what we need to focus on to make reader's submitting content in real-time easier. (We're learning lots!) I'll be in Denver tonight, and then hopefully home the next day. Then I can get back to managing the site. In the meantime, Sunny is ironing out the bugs like the weird issue with the homepage thumbnails and such, as well as putting a flag system and user moderation option in the thread to report spam and assholes who are harassing other users. Let's try to keep it clean -- and not be dicks to each other because of political views -- this isn't Reddit or 4chan -- we're better than that. Hmm, that's all I can think of at the moment -- my bacon cheeseburger just got dropped off in front of me and I haven't eaten for 12 hours so I'm going to demolish my food and speed over to Denver? Then do a little work on the site. Until then, be nice to each other and check out my Instagram acct (@iamfancylad) for some trip highlights. Full travelogue post this Friday! XOXO, fancy

Just wanted to leave some feedback. Have enjoyed coming to this website for some time - before and after the downtime. I never engage in the conversation. All of that said this place has pretty much turned into cancer at this point. Every other post is a far left or far right political view and now for this latest experiment half the posts don't have corresponding pictures or links. It's pretty much a mess and I much doubt I'll be swinging in anymore. I could deal with the issues with postings and links, but the fact that there is so little entertaining material anymore there really isn't a reason to visit. Take it for what it's worth.

Holy Cow. Before the change the average number of hits per post was over 10,000 and some were over 20,000. Now 5cats and Trimble are top of the leaderboard, on the two latest pages of posts there are barely any that have hit 1000 hits, and even though Fancy said "Any questions, ask away — I’ll answer everything in the thread below." He hasn't responded to any posts in this thread. This is like when I watched my uncle die of cancer.

Just my 2 cents. On “the old IAB” I could be wrong but I believe there was a rather diverse and fairly large community of moderators made up of long time, trusted members that resulted in a broader spectrum of posts with a little bit of everything that truly gave IAB the feel of being a site where you could go to actually relieve daily boredom. I like the idea of simply allowing any and all post but I think it ran pretty damn smoothly with the group of overseers and probably made life a little easier on the mods as well as kept fresh and interesting content flowing daily.

@TheZigRate I am sorry that text confused you so I removed it. There is no code to enter .. just a checkbox to click on. Good luck!

As you know, the recent deluge of posters DEMANDING that I put up photos of my ripped abdomen and impressive pectorals has dominated all discussion on IAB. Sadly, I have decided to refrain from posting such images, in favor of more substantive and relevant content. Sorry, everyone.

Relevant posts like more gun arguments? Or Political bashing? There's certainly a shortage of those.

Unfortunately, something like that has already happened. A few years ago someone spammed the comments with meat spin, and I'm still trying to get that out of my brain,

5cats, right now, sunny and j-dog are manually deleting the spam, but sunny is building an architecture and some UX which will allow all users to monitor the content and message boards -- basically, everyone will have moderator capabilities, but some more (trusted users) than others (noobs with fresh accounts). The idea is for members with higher levels of points to have more control of the editorial process.

There's not a "Submit Link" anymore. Do we now copy and paste the entire article in the "Here is where you submit your copy" box? Instead of changing things we were using without problems, how about changing things for what we've been requesting? Like an "edit" and "delete reply" capability for when we see that we messed something up in our comment. Maybe the ability to easily place a pic in the comments like we used to?

Bro, I know -- we need those buttons. I'm making a list of questions and requests in this thread and forwarding them to Sunny and J -Dog, although I know they're also monitoring the bugs (like the wonky front-page thumbnails). I usually fix stuff like that, but I've been on a road trip and my wi-fi hasn't been the best in some of the cities I've been in. Im about 48 hours away from home sweet home. I know, bad timing to take a trip during this experiment, but it's sort of how things shook out.

I'm figuring it out. Thumbnails: Save to pictures on my computer then browse to post it from my pics. The content box is weird, though, in that sometimes I post a link and the content shows up, sometimes just the link shows up. I do like that the post shows up right away instead of taking a day or two. The comments were more fun in the old days when it was easy to post links and pics; it would be great to get that capacity back.

that is the link box. It says right around that box somewhere that whatever you put in there will be shown up in the page, like your paragraph of text, your video, your pic, etc.

Okay. Thank you. Tried it a few days ago and it didn't get posted. Maybe I did something wrong and maybe they didn't care for the story. The follow-up to it got posted, though.

@fancylad? Can we get a couple paragraph tutorial on how to post? I posted the image link like i always have. What do we do to make the image show up as opposed to just the link? I don't want to trial and error it and spam the site with fail.

Holygod, will do tonight. I agree -- the submission process has a few quirky bugs, but Sunny is trying to iron things out while the complete overhaul takes place. (also, I've been on a cross-country road trip and my wi-fi has been spotty at best so it's been impossible to oversee things as much as I'd like to, but I'm in Nebraska now and about 400 miles from Denver. After that, it's a quick stop in Vegas and then Long Beach, Ca. I'm dying to get back to I-A-B and dive head-first into catching up on what I missed with you guys.

So ... it's been a year. How's IAB doing? Have you hit some goals? Paying it's bills or maybe even buying you a Fapaccino or two? Need more of us to click on the ads?

Hey Gerry, so we're breaking even which is great. Just enough money to pay the crazy server costs (remember, I-A-B has hundreds of thousands of pages that get Googled every day which puts a big strain on the servers, but Sunny is designing a backend architecture that will streamline that). We're also paying a web designer who's re-doing the site design an UX which is costing us $$$, but it'll be eorth it. Time to bring I-A-B into 2016. It's a longer process than I thought!
