Moving the forum

The original idea of CSN was to move the forum there and do what we are doing now and that was years ago.

The problem was as soon as there was a forum connected to the writers, they lost their press passes back then.  Total bullshit, but it was the case. Doesn't seem to be an issue anymore.

Otherwise I have talked about this issue on and off for several years. It isn't new. 

 

i'm not saying the plan to move was new, i'm just talking about the first listed reason.

i do agree losing a press pass because there's a forum on a site is dumb as there's not too much difference between forums and comment sections.

It isn't new either, and long before  PC reactionary stuff rolled along.

People have been saying down right psycho libelous shit for a long time.   We have been threatened to be sued at least four times over the last ten years, and there are many in the soccer community for which we are permanently buggered with for things said on the forum.

This has been in the works for a long time.

i'm not saying it's new either, just saying that there were a lot of members who shrugged it off as nothing as of late and do wish it was made clear, in a more viewed forum in more recent times, that this shit wasn't great for the group. some stuff was trickling into other zones (iirc someone asked about the vs in a bunz group a while back and the comments were largely negative)

re: lawsuits. not shocked.

I'm behind this 100%. Thanks for making the tough move.

Happy to help in anyway,  as I continue code literacy to ensure millennials don't steal my job.

Cool, what are you learning?

Just to throw my two cents in, I thought it was BS that the anti PC thread in the Off Topic forum was deleted.  Maybe I'm wrong but I don't remember too much of anything libelous there (that came out of the keyboard of people here), just differences in political opinion.  There is a very large political movement to the right happening and not the evil alt-right that some would proclaim but getting back to old time Conservatism, but that is neither here nor there.

The stuff that I thought was libelous, in my hundred years here, were some of the anti CSA wingnuts (my so called Legion of Doom).  Some of those people (and some are still here) called Kevan Pipe everything but a child of God.  Now, I'm no defender of the CSA but I did comment rather vociferously against some of those comments especially when people in those positions can't defend themselves publicly nor should they to a bunch of internet yahoos who haven't a clue about the constraints they are under and what goes on behind the scenes.  JMO

The legal stuff was all attacks on people, really only three, nothing from the OT Forum. One of them doesn't count, but at the time it was hard to know that.

The relentless negativity was a problem.  We get new people in or we die, that simple.

People have posted in the MLS forum on CSN...What are you not seeing? ????

I see it now at CSN - plus 2 or 3 other things that I couldn't see a few hours ago.

And I see an easy to find link to the forums now from the CSN home page!

Not sure why I wasn't seeing earlier - I'm only on mobile (Android) currently ... still out in Vancouver for a few more days!

Good work moving it all and keeping it intact!

Will tickets for future games in the voyageurs section be posted on just this website or can we expect related threads on the new forum website as well?

V's will have the crap the promoted out of it there.

Odd, but there is no option.

I'm going to be create a whole bunch of theme options so people can pick Halifax, Whitecaps, Canada ect.....    I'll dig it out, it must be there somewhere. 

It could be just the favicon.ico file you place in the root web directory and any web browser will use this file as the icon.

Cloud based software as a service.... no access to such things.

I did switch the theme back, I think it should have that option now. I just forgot to check.

For consideration...

we have dozens of highly active, hundreds of moderately active users on the forum. DR is the only remotely active poster on the home landing-page.

Is there merit for this unbalanced approach?

The Forum is likely a much more effective landing page for CSN domain.

That will change. 

But it is up to people to add their content.  I have made accounts for people, but they are not adding links to their content... not sure why, they would get some traffic out of it. 

There is a lot more to add, I just can't do all of it at once and I am currently working on sorting out all the tickets and making shirts for the game this Saturday.

Absolutely. Sorry, did not mean to come off as “we need this now”. 

Just a discussion based off of current and past attempts at the CSN site

Not at all.

We are building this site for you guys.  We want to improve it, and open to all ideas.  Still a whole bunch of little things to tweak. 

Rintarin just posted something to bump Duane off the top!  That is how it is supposed to work!  Woo hoo!

Did I lose all of my reputation points when the move happened?  What will I do without my sweet sweet internet points?

Actually, it looks like a good chuck of my history is gone.

Should all be there. I can see it in your profile. Are you logging into the correct account?

EDIT: Wait sorry.  I see it is zero.  So is mine.

Were they all like that? Have to check.  Will look in the morning.

When I first tried logging in my old password didn't work so I had to reset it.  This was shortly after the initial move.  Don't know if this was related to me losing the info or not.
