as we are mods here Sunny, we can delete/moderate.
I have deleted my thread in ..... the personal forum already
One can copy whatever, then we have the info for future use Smile
It can be just reworded Smile
How can we contact to ask permission anyway.
When the new board is sorted, methinks a few should have the means to admin xxx

Well Mia, that is up to the Boss, he is the Administrator and I am the Moderator and it is my job to put the message board to bed if anything happens to him Smile  . I do feel though that there should be some sort of interplay between the members in good standing (including the moderators) and the Administrator with the head of the moderator staff as the go between. In an ideal world an Administrator would be the same as a "benevolent" monarch, and the members are as the House of Commons, and the moderator staff are as the House of Lords, with the head of the moderator staff as sort of as the Prime Minister, with the understanding that anybody and everybody can say to heck with it all and move to another kingdom if they are unhappy about just any little thing Smile  .  Just love! john

lol, ok, I'll send him a message asking for permission, stating that if I receive no answer within 7 days, I take my request to be answered affirmatively ....

seriously, I have only taken that which I put in myself and some I posted with the permission of the authors and credited to them.

I wonder what's happened to SB
I hope he is ok
Anyone have any thoughts?

 As far as I know Mia you have a legal right to anything that you have posted. It is just that because he also carries the copy write on it you may have to share any money that you might make off of that which you have published in his publication, should he ever say anything about it. And with all of the natural disaster stuff that has been happening to the East Coast of the United States your concern for Spirit Being's welfare is valid. Spirit Being in his profile did seem to indicate that he lives on the East Coast of the United States and things have been very ruff for the folks that are living there. Love, john

 Thanks again Laura Ann! This site's subscription runs out November this year. It will be interesting to see what happens. Well, now that Laura came through like a champ again and has found the owner, maybe some one in Britain can see if she can be contacted. The message board is worth $239 US and makes .18 cents a day income. Too cool, Laura Ann! Love, john

Check if possible each member that registers.   Like for instance....'Are they safe to have on site?'

There are a few members around who are causing mischief and upsetting other members.

 Joan, this is at this time an "owner absent message board" and only the owner has the ability to do what you are suggesting, no one else on this message board does. Which means that this message board is open to "Trolls" and "Hacking" and there is nothing that anybody can do about it. This message board is doomed Smile  . We are all just fiddling while we are waiting for the ship to sink. It takes four to six months for one of you guys to become the new owner and the contract between the present owners and the message board service providers is up in three months  Smile  .  john

Now I understand,John.    I wasn't quite sure what was happening.

Well,I've been on a few sites and know quite a few members by name so if I see any
known to me who are trouble makers,will let you know.

Thanks John.....

 Joan I would rather not know Smile  >  The fun is in the surprise. At this point this message board is a "soap opera" and we are waiting to see how the fates write the script. To be honest with you guys, this is the last message board that I am going to be a member user on. After this I am going to be the owner/founder of my own message board or a co-owner/founder of a message board. Twenty years of this stuff is enough. I do not want to play the member user game anymore. And I do not care if my message board is just a little message board that is lost in the highways and by ways of the internet. It will be mine or shared with one other person and whatever that message board becomes or does not become will be my fault and the fault of nobody else. Nope, nope, and nope! No more of this. Twenty years day in and day out is enough. If I am going to put work and effort in something, then I want some control over that something's destiny. john

Guys I seem to be creating negativity, so I am going to give myself a time out. I will continue to watch things but only as an observer. Stephen I am no longer interested in a co-owner/founder relationship anymore. I have to explore things on my own which I know is ok with you and that all is well. What most administrators don't understand is that one has to know and understand the mathematics of chaos before they can run a successful message board over time. Like Jeff Goldblum said in the movie "Jurassic Park", "Life will find a way!" Which means that stuff will happen and because of this, if you do not understand the mathematics of chaos, then you are always in a "reactive" state instead of a "proactive" state. Eventually that burns you out and things slowly begin to fall a part, including your sanity. Most administrators can run the mechanical aspects of a message board, but they can not run the psycho social aspects of a message board, over time, because they are constantly being forced into a "reactive" state because they do not understand the mathematics of chaos. My problem is that I don't want to learn the mechanical of administrating a message board, for whatever reason, even though I have the aptitude. This I perceive as a limiting personality flaw that needs to be solved. So I have to do this on my own. Anyway everybody, thank you for your wonderful good wishes, they are appreciated! Love, john

I have sent email ot email addy
and 2 messges ot two of her facebook pages.

the expires in Oct is I believe merely the  right   of domain name ownership expires.

You have to buy the  domain name  or anyone can use it.. it is  a option for any forum to own your  name .  You buy it for however many years.

if you look a tbottom of forum you will see  acontribution  in red word
here people can contribute  money which buys credits. the name and or  picture and vieo space is  bought with credits.

BUT.. of course  a butt

it requires ability to  enter admin controls to use the credits ..
but site wont shut down in oct... not what that is about.

Well,you need an Admin and at least two Moderators.
Rules and regulations about what members can say and not say.   In other words to be polite at all times.

To give warnings to naughty members.Shocked 
Every computer has a IP number as identification.
So if a member is dispatched from the site and is thought to have returned under another user name,IP's can be checked. (Of course they may own two computers....Smile )


Last but not least,to have patience with members who do not understand the workings of a site.    To give assistance when possible.

How's that?
