Will the recent bans on certain types of conversations be lifted and will certain previously banned users like TV’s Frink be allowed to return?

What about the people who can’t afford to contribute? Too bad for all of them, they just have to deal with the trolls who can help?

Does that seem fair to you?

If I had money, I would donate. But I’m sorry, I don’t. When that changes, I will donate.

As long as 20 people here donate at least $4 dollars each month that more than covers it. In my opinion, if you can’t spare $4 a month maybe you should stop reading this and update your résumé. 😜

Also, is there a way we can add some kind of indicator to how much is left before the deadline? It may help to incentivize people to donate.

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

This assumes that the people mfm asked about being allowed to return are in fact trolls, and

Those decisions will be made independently when enough time has passed and the transition is complete. Any donations made should not have conditions or strings attached.

An indicator would definitely be helpful.

Why do you think we ban people?

And to your bringing up Wook’s point (which I fully agree with); If someone wants to come back now that Jay is gone, taking into consideration some of the incredibly mean and disrespectful things they said about the person who designed, built, and funded this site for 15 years - they’ll need an extremely compelling case for being allowed back.

Ideally, we’d like to display the monthly goal and current balance, but we wanted to get the button up there as quickly as possible given the tight deadline. We’re looking into it, though.

Edit: Anchorhead has ninja-like posting reflexes.

I will simply say that I don’t believe every single person that was banned from this site in the entire history of this forum. was a troll. Nor do I believe that trolling is the only bannable offense on this forum.

And to your oinking out Wook’s point: If someone wants to come back now that Jay is gone, taking into consideration some of the incredibly mean and disrespectful things they said about the person who designed, built, and funded this site for 15 years - they’ll need an extremely compelling case for being allowed back.

Oinking out? I’m not really sure I understand what that means. I will just say that I quoted Silverwook because he seemed to indicate that you guys would talk about that later but then your response to Mfm, seems to contradict that.

I don’t know what your problem is, it seemed like a totally fair question.

Your question carried with it an implication that any potential donation would be contingent upon certain conditions being met. There’s no other reason to ask.

Anyone donating should assume things are going to continue as they are (minus my involvement) when considering whether to contribute. They should also assume their donations don’t entitle them to anything other than a genuine “thank you” from the mods and the community as a whole.

Of course, Anchorhead and SilverWook are free to do what they think is best for the forum starting February 1st. I’ll respect whatever decisions they make and so should everyone else; the lights would be going out at midnight on January 31st if it weren’t for their desire to keep this place running and the generous contributions they’ve received from members thus far.

But if the laser represented the growing dollar total of donations, once funds were raised, wouldn’t that make it seem like the Empire had succeeded?

And that our pursuit had failed instead of being accomplished? 😕

It would work well as a count down to the time the bills are due though. 😉

And for what it’s worth, I’ll kick in a dollar a month.

Well, considering our logo is a Death Star…

Maybe somebody can make something like this? Seems perfect for it.

Autocorrect error that I fixed about 60 seconds after I posted. Guess even that wasn’t fast enough.

Not the first or the last time I’ll make that mistake.
