Still wondering on our whistles, where are they?
On one webpage you have mail shown, the next page, nothing; same with posts on the BBS - there is a definite problem with the way information is refreshed and displayed. It's like a groundhog popping in and out of his hole...
Also could you possibly have the Mods (or your staff) contribute to the wiki help files? I'm thinking with regard to the voting systems, reviews and whistle etiquette (big one, that) A lot of new members just joined and it would be nice to say, "Check the site's wiki help page" Add to that, the changes to what happens in the respective portals when you submit the previously mentioned data.
It's a sore subject, but the Riff-Raff listings... I've gotten 2 spam PM's from accounts made here the redesign... it took 10 years for me to get that many!
Or would it be better for (everything by) everyone just to pony up some Art, Flash or Audio to be noticed blog-wise? I don't want new members coming in without being seen by the better angels our blogging community. Not everyone is comfortable jumping into threads, as I've seen and been myself. I'm no Mod, but I like to ride the "Welcome Wagon" (ask your folks, they might remember). You, yourself had recently greeted a new Gold account member, from the Riff-Raff column, before the redesign. Couldn't believe it myself... lucky noob.
I've more questions and quibbles, but to conclude, would it be possible to have ad sharing revenue for the rest of the sites submissions? The Art and Audio Portals could benefit from the same system the Flash artists now receive. I'm too friggin' poor to help these noble contributors :( If a couple of mouse clicks can save their ass I'll do it. Just like I did all those years ago, when it was just you and yours in that second apartment.
Thanks for staying the distance and granting us liberty - it's been a fun ride through tough times.
