How do you join this damn forum? :)

Postby GrahamB on Wed Aug 03, 2022 8:57 am

"Hi Graham

I found the rumsoakedfist forum yesterday. Yes, I had never heard of it
before, and it looks like interesting people hang out there. I did find
you there as well!

It did say during the registration that you should mail the admin with
your registration details. I tried that, and it bounced because
[email protected] apparently doesn't exist!

Do you know if there's another way to finalize the registration?"

You have to pass through all the tests first.

Especially the secret tests

This is probably why the forum has so few new members and we're in a state of managed decline.

Admins, you got any input on this issue? Y'all need some more hands and eyes on the back end?

Spam bots and fake accounts are huge and expensive problems. We have no subscription, ads or outside sponsorship of any kind. No subscriptions. It is NOT undergoing a ‘managed decline’ due to technology. Any decline is due to member mix and behavior. If you want more out of this community, put more in. Take care with content. Be adults. Post as if your thoughts are forever, ‘cause they are. Tom will approve the account shortly. This place is worth the wait.

different generations end up going to different forums. reddit, discord, whatever it is. it does seem there is some perception out there that everyone here is negative and not particularly interested in "internal" (this happens to be my perception as well), but even if that's the case or not the case, it could just be that Gen Z mainly uses tiktok or whatever they use and not a reflection on content, tech, etc. here at all.

Looks like the duct tape and chicken wire holding this 2008 vintage cybercraft together is fraying. Entropy, I guess. A new platform/software is probably needed, but as long as Kelly keeps the general functions running, that is not likely to happen. There are other substitute venues for people to ply their rants and satisfy their curiosity.

Human monitoring of laments and registrations is dwindling here. There are multiple volunteer moderators and administrators. I am here far less frequently than in days of yore, because like all of you I have other things to do and other priorities. I am headed to the other side of the planet and faraway places, and probably won't be back on board here until October . . . and maybe not even then.

Cheers.

Heading West with Elrond, via the Straight Road to the realm of Valinor is all very noble. As is telling an active poster to post more, but guys, I think the problem I'm talking about here is simply that the

[email protected]

email address doesn't work - it bounces back with this message:

"Your message wasn't delivered to [email protected] because the address couldn't be found or is unable to receive email. "

So, nobody new can join the forum.

By "managed decline" I'm referring to the mental state of the existing members 8-)

Thanks for the help!

And who are you to make that determination for all of the existing members?
I hope I didn't mess everything up in my youthful confused fervor - can you forgive me?

And yet you incessantly stand on your head, do you think at your age it is right?

We have updated registration instructions to include a new usable address. The [email protected] address will still blackhole emails due to high volume.
