Board Business and Updates


A new year brings with it a sense of new beginnings, and it is in that spirit that I am initiating this thread.

Re: Board Business and Updates


One day shy of a full month. Here is the traffic (page views) the board generates. In terms of participation (posts) our board is small, smaller than many similar boards. In terms of interest shown in the proceedings the numbers speak for themselves. We got something happening.

Hi Tere,

I'm not 100% sure about this, but I think part of the increase in the last day or so of Not Logged In visitors to the board is the result of my registering DM at [sign in to see URL]. It will be interesting to see how the read counts add up as the month of April progesses. Maybe we even will pick up a few new members. emoticon

Re: Board Business and Updates


Hi guys,

Here's a little reminder about the profanity filter. We can not turn it off on the board as a whole. When we try to do that, this is the message we get:

"Use the default profanity filter
(currently has no effect - is always on,
can be overriden in user's misc options)"

I think this is because Runboard allows users as young as 13 to sign up. If you want to turn off your profanity filter, go into your control panel and click on miscellaneous options. Then click on forum options, turn off the profanity filter and save your settings. And, then voila! !@#$ will be !@#$, and Emily Dickinson will be Emily Dickinson. emoticon

Hi again guys,

Here is a little reminder about how the board operates, as Tere framed it in his original "Welcome to Delectable Mnts" post:

Delectable Mnts does not have a quota system prescribing so many critiques for every work posted in a prescribed amount of time. The operative principle being: quid pro quo. In my words, we get back what we give.

Re: Board Business and Updates


hi vkp,

Here's how to bold a word, phrase, etc.:

When you are posting a reply, put your cursor before the word/phrase you want to bold, then click on the "B" button (above the comments box and below the smilies). Then move your cursor to after the word/phrase you want to bold and click on the "/B" button. You can use the "I" button" in the same way to create italics. The "U" buttons create underlining.

HTH.

Hi to all,

Our community logo has disappeared, and I don't know why. emoticon I have put in a request for assistance at Runboard's support forum. Will let you know what's up when I find out myself.

It will be back in less than 24 hours... I was really busy and totally forgot to renew the rbbt domain name but that has been done now.

My apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused...

Hey board buddies,

I found out from Pastor Rick that he has to pay to keep logos like ours online. I asked him to let us reimburse him, but he said that is not necessary. However, he said that if we wanted to give him a few karma points that would be appreciated:

Karma is just a 'point system', If you like someones post you can applaud them, which will give them +1 point in their karma, and if you don't like their post you can smite them, which gives them -1 in their karma.

We have the karma system turned off for DM, but if you are signed in and go to the following link, you can find the post by Pastor Rick and click on the "applaud" button at the bottom, which will increase his karma:

Very nice of Pastor Rick, Of course, I am willing to remiburse him. In the mean time Karma points coming his way, I hope others will do the same.

If any member inclined to create a logo for our board let us know please. A good thing to change board logos periodically. Cost would be mine.

Hi to all,

As per board policy, I have been going through some of the forums and pruning a few of the older threads. This is a time-consuming activity, made more so due to the fact that we have been a bit lax about doing this lately.

I hope I haven't deleted any threads anyone was particularly attached to! If you have any old threads you would like to have deleted, please PM Chris or myself, and we will see to it.

Thanks,
Kat

Re: Board Business and Updates


In case anyone was wondering, here is the protocol I am attempting, loosely but I hope judiciously, to follow:

"~Generally threads have a shelf life of two months. After which time judicious pruning occurs. The purpose is to forestall clutter, freeing up space Runboard allots us. The criteria applied is this: threads not generating conversation and viewing get pruned. Threads looking to address a passing circumstance or a time-stamped announcement of events have a shelf life of one month. The same criteria applies: threads not generating conversation and viewing get pruned. Additionally, irrespective of the time frame, starting posts edited by their authors excising a complete text get removed. As can threads following on a starting post whose content its originator has edited out. Excepted from getting culled are poems, creative prose, original translations, critical essays, original art, and material workshopped in the forum, Ateliers. If, however, original works starting a thread are removed by the author, or requested to be removed, the whole of the thread gets deleted. (Feb. '10)The starting threads posted by members who have been denied access to the board for violating TOS also get removed. (Aug. '11)"

[sign in to see URL]

To be honest, it is a lot easier for me to be ruthless with threads I've started than with threads started by other members. Also, sometimes if a thread generated a good discussion that lifted the thread beyond its given shelf life, I've left it in place.

Thank you, Kat, for seeing to business. The task is not much fun. Tedious too. Feel free to go ruthless with my posts as well. And, yes, if you feel a thread has intrinsic interest shelf life can always be extended. Thanks again.

Hi Tere,

Chris has graciously volunteered to help with the pruning process, so in the days ahead we will be dividing up the forums and going through them to make sure any intial links still work. This will be a time-consuming process for sure, so we will probably do a few threads a day until we work our way through the whole board. Once done we'll do a happy dance and throw a little party. emoticon

Chris and I have completed this round of pruning and have done our happy dance. Now it's time to party! Several of you have said you know of a few people who might like to post here, and now that the board is spruced up, please encourage them to stop by! Let them know we are an IBPC board, looking for new members. We've got a red carpet ready to roll out for them. emoticon
