Quote from: Darken Wilde on Jun 27, 2017, 09:09 AMThe greatest moments from the old Sissyfight were the greatest fights. You remember them.No. I don't remember any great fights. I remember a lot of petty, childish fights, but no particularly good ones.
QuoteThen it became people punishing other people. You're not in compliance: BANNED. You said something that hurts somebody else: BANNED. You're... BANNED.RQ was the only one banning on the original boards and for that reason the mods were often overwhelmed when her activity level was low. On the previous version of this board we only banned the people who were straight up trolling or otherwise being dicks, and only after ample warning. You never managed to get yourself banned, for example.
I've learned quite a lot from my Sissy friends, but the main thing I've learned is BANNING.
Everybody who is different from me: BAN THEM. If you disagree: BAN THEM. Build a community, and anybody who isn't 100% in collusion, BAN BAN BAN BAN BAN THEM.
QuoteOn the other hand, you could accept that the world is more complex than your prejudices.You're waxing philosophical over a message board? There's a difference between "complexity" and being a dick. Walking out into public and speaking your mind taking a controversial stance is complexity. Walking up to someone and punching them in the face is being a dick. The former is free speech, while the latter is battery. The people we banned were the message board equivalent of being the latter, and I don't recall anyone who was banned for the former. While the two may be conflated in your mind, that does not make your accusations accurate.
The world is more complex than any board can accommodate. Bad things happen, and good people compensate.
QuoteBut that's not the Sissyfight history. Sissyfight history is about shame and exclusion. There is no Sissy history where Happy Meal and I can find common ground.Sounds to me like that's very much your problem. I never bothered with the childish drama on the old board and I still don't care about it now. As far as I know Meal hasn't even signed on here since I reloaded SMF, but whatever.
QuoteMooby, you missed your calling. You're a nerd without art. You're incapable of creating something meaningful, so you create something didactic without meaning.It was never my intention nor role to reinvent the wheel. I volunteered to help with the reboot because I know the board software. That's it. This was never my "calling" and I didn't set out to recreate history's turds that you have polished into fond memories. SF was never my calling, but it's cute that you think that.

Why is Mooby the one holding this bag? He's either the diabolical orchestrater of it all, or he's the patsy holding the murder weapon.I was the one who recovered control the site after we lost it.
Who is "we?".
Thanks for picking up the pieces.
How's about I make you an admin and let you play around a little?

Quote from: Darken Wilde on Apr 26, 2017, 07:46 AM1. This software doesn't work. Could be a bad install. Could be bad configuration. Could be bad software. I've never heard of "SimpleMachinesForum". Never installed it either. Haven't ever used it, at least to my knowledge. Every post I've tried to made has failed, and only my Cmd-A, Cmd-C habits preserved anything I've tried to post.It's a beta of the upcoming release for the software we previously had on here. I decided to install it so I could see how it looks while we figured out what to do with the site.
Quote2. Who owns the domain? Who controls the DNS? Both have gone pear shaped as far as I have noticed. Somebody with gumption needs to maintain control of these things.The login info is posting in the original site planning Facebook group, but I don't think anyone else has touched it since I loaded this board.
Quote4. It took me, like, 8 tries to post two messages, and I know what I'm doing. This is either a terrible software choice, or you're pre-banning me before anybody shows up.I haven't had any issues with it, though I haven't played around with it much.
Quote5. As much as I would love the idea that I'm so unbearable that you have deliberately constructed a cage where I can troll anonymously to nobody, I suspect this is shit software with bad understanding of the administration, and possibly complete ignorance of both of the above.This is a fresh install with no adminning done on it.
