Important TDPF announcement

Postby admin » Wed Jul 17, 2013 11:10 am

* We are admin.
* We may be the foron to your left. Or to your right.
* We wield the banhammer yet lightly as this community tends to work best when left to its own capabilities.
* We like simple and clean. There are enough animated images within these walls that individual avatars are not deemed necessary. Nor are signatures.
* We dislike spam enough that we shall remain diligent in our efforts to quell it.
* We would desire that you not necro-post as new topics enhance liveliness. However, if you must, at least make it entertaining and purposeful.
* We think it is the same with modifying quotes from others. At least be funny.
* We do not suffer fools and rogues gladly but we will let them make spectacles of themselves all on their own.
* We retain the right to create posts, edit posts, delete posts, lock threads, delete threads, love forons, suspend forons, ban forons, warn, cajole, threaten, fold, spindle and mutilate.
* We are weary just ruminating on doing all of the above.

If I didn't know better I'd say that it looks like Blunt finally got that gig at Isthmus that he always wanted...'cause I totally heard those words in his voice.

I heard that VO farmed out the administrative duties to the NSA. Can anyone confirm?

I too was going to welcome our new anonymous overlords. I think it will reduce the ego/personal factor. I do hope that it is not comprised of civilians. Absolute power and all that.

Sure Bob; I will say a few words, thank you.

I think the reason this place exists is two-fold:

1. It is backed by a print alt-weekly
2. Madison is old skool

Growing up, any time I went to a new city, I grabbed the free alt-weekly to find the scene.

I went out on a business trip recently to a large city in the West. I looked for and could not find a place like this (online). I wanted to ask questions on where to go, what it was like to live there, where to eat, stuff like that. Joyce mentioned the awe the other alts had at this place, I think it would be awesome if they could duplicate it, and make it a network of alts.

Before I step off, I also think there should be a sub-forum where readers could post submissions for print consideration/feedback (vpo-more free content) ((Hear that Blunt?))

Interns at the helm could be fun. Especially Tipsy Tequila Two-Time Tuesdays.

p.s. Not to be all negative, I do like that I can delete a post I made if no one has replied. I also like how you give ownership when I respond to a spammer thread.

In my opinion, the forum has improved with the new admin. A lot less lame...
