Is this re-design going to delete any user content?

i don’t think it will, but more specifically, what about the design work we’ve put into our blog/profile pages? will the css somehow transfer over to the new format so we don’t have to redesign our profile/blog pages?

Losing your profile page design is small potatoes. I wouldn’t want GNN to lose its UNO UPDATES

Stephen, I think you should accelerate the purges on the site for the re-design. Look at all the jackasses in this thread alone. Also, I’ve had this name for at least a week.

Most of us were already polite…

On Edit: I think… Something tells me I used to hang around in a chat room playing the dozens on GNN’s dime, but it’s all fuzzy and faded with time. Did I ever call anyone here ‘homofag?’ Suggest their mother worked the mens room in the public park night-shift? Suggest their dad serviced the day shift?

My god… the bannings made me a docile pussy!!!

Exciting news! I don’t get to visit often any more – moderating another forum & working on a flash game’s bugs, as well as co-editing an ezine (for the same game company). I’m trying to make myself a schedule-ish-thing so as to be around a bit more; we’ll see what happens.

I’ve gotten Terribly Polite due to moderating a family-friendly (read PG-13) forum, but don’t hold back because of that development. Flame me all you like – ironically, I get more hayt there (but I hold teh banhammer there) – I’m used to it.

I’m sorry, but your post has been deleted. Please do not hijack threads as it is against the Universal Forum Rules. You may make new posts; however, threads directed at a single user are not allowed, so please do not use me as the topic of your new thread. (You may, however, use the off-topic area to discuss GNN and/or tyrannical dictatorships.)

It was hardly functional. The good thing about chat on the old gnn is that you could just log in and hang out and do whatever shit you needed to online/on your computer and when people came into chat you would still be there. The chat we had on gnn deuce would kick you after like 5 minutes or less of inactivity which made it quite a bitch to stay on for any amount of time.


R324838

right, i remember. the thing about the old chat was that if neo-nazis came on the site, their shit would be right out in the open for everyone. once we get the new design up and running, we can def try to implement again.

How about an e-mail notification when comments are added to a headline/article/link, etc. which one has posted in the yard?

Such a feature could/should facilitate more timely editing, and perhaps we could adopt a standard whereby, if, say a headline is put in the yard, but the original poster fails to edit in a timely manner, then someone else can re-post-maybe after 24 hours of non-response?

A quick scan and I don’t see this…

But being able to get your PMs on the site itself would be nice. Sure, a notification sent to your email, even with the message itself, but it’s pretty awkward when you can only reply on GNN, but can’t see your message or inbox here.

I’m going to feel really dumb if there’s been a button on the side for that this whole time.

well, in all fairness, nine months ago they were just getting into the “thick work of programming the HTML and CSS.”

i’ve heard it’s sorta like quantum physics, derivatives, and the debate of “who came first, the chicken or the egg.” all wrappped up into one. i’ve got a handle on the chicken/egg (don’t ask – you won’t like the answer), but i’m still at the physics and derivatives for dummies stage.

one comes through the door of gnn with no expectations and by gawd that’s what get’s delivered.

Are you inept, fake, liberal, establishment-fellating pieces of shit going to add a “Delete Your Account” feature?

in a word, never.

the overlords were to say the least, quite unprepared for the mass exodus shortly after the release of Gnnv2.

Considering the near devastating numbers it was decided that a “Delete Your Account” feature was in fact rather counter-productive in terms of a visible loyalty to the site which in turn spoke to its value.

Sorry Marchy. It’s kinda how the song goes…. You can check out but you can never leave.

In the meantime, why not check out some of the cool merchandise in the Gnn store.
