How about linking to all sites created by Dave...this will raise our ranking with Google if I understand SEO correctly

Love the way you did the smilies with all the YABB showing by default and "view more"to see others. Gives it a nice feel like the old board.

no. not really. i put the software in to start piddling around with it, and then ended up using it as a testing ground for developing eF 2.0 *cough*3.0*cough* ;)

anyway, with being an admin here, and eF getting new life, i don't feel any need to get it going just yet. i have some other projects in the works which need more immediate attention. i'll get it going sooner or later, but i don't think there's much need for another new forum based on the eF model at this point.

Let me give you a suggestion for a planned improvement.....get rid of the porn. No fooling, if Strange Brazilian Porn and softcore Jap porn (two entries this week) is what Emptyflower is now about...that is fine but I am out of here. Let me be quick to add, I have no objection to porn, I had quite the collection in the days of my youth. But is this supposed to be a martial arts site? Or a playground for junior high school kids. If you look at the posts since the new version of EF has been unveiled, the answer is clear.

If anyone ever wants to set up a serious Chinese martial arts forum please let me know. I would be happy to help...but this ain't it. Fong, Ashe, this is nothing personal gentlemen, I am 100% you guys are trying to do what you think is best for the forum....but, as the locals say, zai jian.

take care,
Brian

True. No porn. You know that many members check Ef with their kids and wives around.

In my experience "serious" martial arts forum discussions have the same amount of signal to noise ratio and tend to vacillate to either extreme...either not much dissent and therefore not much information exchange or the other end...see bulshido.

Until martial artists cease to be clannish, elitist type A fuckers, then this is pretty much as good as it gets...everyone is basically friendly...really egregious behavior is stamped on, and people can ask pretty much any serious question and get several different and many times equally valid different interpretations of what works and what doesn't and that will serve the discriminating reader a chance to continue working on his own little martial journey.

I would also like to add that the main forum, Xingyiquan - Baguazhang - Taijiquan, has always been very serious. If you're easily distracted or insulted, or are browsing in presence of kids, etc., the solution is quite simple and kind'a obvious -- stick to the main forum, don't go to OTT or BTDT.

Or you could just be a grownup and say to yourself that what people are doing on any particular thread doesn't need to involve you.

No porn?!? >:(

Why not just stay out of the OFF THE TOPIC section?

And as far as being a "serious martial artist" maybe you shouldn't take yourself so seriuosly, ...

... SERIOUSLY Brain, can you even fight your way out of a wet paper bag? :-\

Or by "serious" do you mean "well read". ::)

All the fighting men I know love pictures of naked ladies, and there was a period of my training that involved watching porno as a meditation, ...

... NO JOKE !

No porn ?!?

Give me a break, - posts with porn are always marked NSFW, - if you have a problem with it, why are you looking at those posts in the first place?

The Brazilian thing was noted to be about scat; so I never saw it,( poo is not my thing).

The Japanese girl on the other hand would not be known to me if it wasn't for eF, ...


... THANKS eF ! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK ! ;D
