    Well hold on to your old MS paint program because it is going the way of the dinosaur with Windows new release this fall.

    I gotta say I'm a fan of SLC's work, Trilla, Dogger, Drunk Namath, I don't know where those guys find the time to post like they do.

    cowgodmoo and jeff are good for some entertaining spats also.
    Sloth has been here and is welcome here, I think he posted a couple days ago

    Trilla, I don't think has been here for awhile, but I believe he was here during the early days

    Dogger has been here off and on through bannings on phog, also welcome

    Not sure if DrunkNamath has been here

    cowgod, I still want to know whose sock that is, and jeff actively hates this place...he's made several threads about why it sucks here, I think one may be or might have been in the hall...it was amusing...both would be welcome here

    Hmmm, can't test at work, image share sites are blocked

    I didn't know that gifv's didn't work, to be honest

    have you tried posting using the picture upload button above the reply box?

    Yep, won't let me upload that way. Have tried several different ways, but no dice. Probably user error, but thought I would venture the question just in case I was missing something.

    Thanks. And just so I continue in this vain of asking too many questions, how do you post tweets? If I copy the
    'tweet link" or the "embed tweet link" nothing shows up but the actual copied text, not the tweet itself.

    Thanks again. I will now go look for other stuff to ask you about.

    I started a thread on the admin board with all the issues people have come up with...I added embedding tweets to the list.

    surely vBulletin has the functionality, we just haven't added it. I think usually people just screenshot or copy/paste, but I'm sure there's a better way to do it...thanks for bringing it to our attention

    Most of the tweets I post are screenshots that someone else has taken. In a few cases, I've posted tweets that I've made a screenshot of, myself. But, as far as I know, to get it to look like it does on Twitter, you just have to take a screenshot (until we make a change to make it easier/better).

    regarding the chat discussion...I don't think it will be easy to turn it on and off for live events, but I think the problem we had was we used to show "Chat (8)" so you knew when people were sitting in there and people went there vs. posting

    We haven't had the discussion in a long time, and I have since changed my opinion, I'd rather have more posts on the board and keep chat for live events...we used to have a chat thread that people bumped for events so you knew that something was going on...I'm all for starting that back up again so we can do "event chats " like someone mentioned for more than just games, but shows like Game of Thrones and the like

    I generally stay out of bball chat, just because SWhawk is always ahead of my stream and it makes me more anxious than anything...football is easier, cause I always assume the worst, but it's like having a Lucid Bob Davis giving me the break down of the game and it scares the shit out of me

    So public shaming to keep people out of chats except for live events. Got it. Public shaming.

    I'm not sure event chats like for Game of Thrones would work too well. To read what anyone else was posting, people would have to divert their attention from the show. Live sports work because there are always lots of breaks in the action.

    Fair point, didn't think about that....generally I watch on my computer and have my stuff side by side, but you're right, that would take away from the show

    But I guess the fact remains, doesn't have to be just KU Fball or Bball, could be a big game or *gulp* Chiefs Chat

    As far as I'm concerned just leave it open and available. If a group of people decide they want to go in and chat about a golf tournament going on or something, they can do that. If it gets to be a problem, then change it later. I wouldn't make something like this a priority when we are dealing with cleaning up some of the other issues.

    While you're not wrong about that, you might not have been around for it, but Chat has been the most divisive topic on this board over the years....to a comedic point

    In fact, I have a group chat with some other posters that was created because we killed chat on this board at one point...amusing but true

    This place is basically that neighborhood bar that operates at a loss but the owners don't really give a shit because they see it as a public service to have a place for their buds to get hammered safely and sloppily hit on the one girl in the bar...

    I buy that description. The main difference in my opinion between this place and Phog is this place is not overrun by immature 12 year olds getting boners from the knowledge that nobody knows who they really are. We have immature adults that respect each other (for the most part). Oh, and MissTC, who provides hours of free entertainment. Plus gameday chat, where the topic of midget amputee porn always seems to come up.

    Then twice per year a bus load of hot chicks show up and tell us that they are going to make this the next popular bar and come here regularly. We get all excited. Break out new uniforms and scrub the floor to get rid of the vomit smell.

    Then the girls never come back.

    One thing new members should be aware of (and I think this may have been mentioned)....

    If you click on "Settings" at the top of the screen, it will show you who has given you the "Green Thumb" (Good) and the "Red Thumb" (bad) on your posts. This helps prevent someone from harassing you anonymously with a low rating. The ratings shouldn't matter, but it always bothered me on the Phog that I had a one-star-stalker that remained anonymous. It's one of the reason that I left, but not the only reason. If someone harasses you with consistent low ratings, you'll know who it is. Generally speaking, we have always been a pretty tight-knit group and have allowed people to do whatever they want here. Almost anything goes. However, if you feel someone is harassing you or creating a problem for you, let a Mod know and we can look into it. Nobody has been banned from here since I've been here, and it would take a lot to get someone banned, but we can discuss problems and deal with them, as needed.

    The bottom line is that we want to make this board a positive experience for everyone. (I think I speak for all of the "regulars" here on that issue). We want everyone to feel welcome and we will allow a lot of leeway on posting. With that said, we don't want to see anyone on here attempt to run other people off or create a problem for others who are making contributions to the board.

    I think this system of having no anonymous ratings helps toward that goal.
