Change of subject Big Grin #letsGETpeachy! http://makestation.net/showthread.php?tid=2090

I'm interested how you managed to get sex, from my new eggplant emoji. Like wut? Where did this sexy peach come from? +1 for another new emoji. I had to look up phallus, google decided images was the best option.. Thanks! and if what you're saying is true eggplant = ...a fake one, then peach = ...a fake one so put two and two together you got something but it definitely isn't sex! Finna also you put images in the shoutbox like so: Eggplant Tongue .P.S. I were asking for someone to demonstrate ON not someone to explain to me, however I get it now Big Grin and I hope this message mind boggles and throws off anyone reading this shoutbox like wtf did I just say /s
avatar
basically eggplant + peach = sex.
avatar
and I don't know how to put images into the shoutbox lol.
avatar
avatar
Zalost? Tongue Darth? Anyone care to volunteer? Eggplant
avatar
Demonstrate... one anyone but me. Tongue
avatar
Would you like me to show you? Big Grin Eggplant
avatar
What do they use it for? Blush
avatar
Hi all. Big Grin
avatar
lol
avatar
Zalost, oh I know Eggplant
avatar
yo darth, wazzup man?
avatar
Blush
avatar
nevermind I think I get the joke now lol
avatar
eggplant? umm... harry do you know what teens use that for in the US?
avatar
HAHAHA!!!!
avatar
I think I found my new emoji Eggplant
avatar
woah ho ho!
avatar
hmm... it's too bad there's all those spambot hosts and hacked PC's... otherwise I'd release some kinda worm that tracks code in commonly used one's and delete's them... hell I'd even call it the pacman anti-bot worm... gobbling up them ghosts.
avatar
Yeah, it's crazy, but there's nothing really to be done if we want to benefit from it.
avatar
Regarding official bots (like Baidu, Google, etc.) we don't want to chase them off. They index the site for their search engines. The rest, all of the spambots, etc., well they don't look at robots.txt anyway so the only thing that would really do any good would be disabling the site for guests... Finna
avatar
so why so many bots all the time? and is there a way to edit the robots.txt to chase them off?
avatar
quick somebody set off an EMP!
avatar
If only the 43 users active right were members. Cool

and 39 lurkers. Angel

Hi Google, oh and late Hi to VSS Tongue

whos online with me? google, baidu and bing bots... hi bot friends
avatar
Tongue]
avatar
ah ha noone is one now. time to go streaking.
avatar
Xrumer bots?
avatar
Yes I do actually! It has been quite a while since I have been able to really log on and check them out. A lot of it is probably Xrumer bots trying to get in but I will definitely look into it!
avatar
@"Darth-Apple" You get a lot of Guest traffic here, do you have analytics set up? Anyway of telling if they are bots or actual people. Would be nice to learn where they are mostly coming from and to enhance on that
avatar
That’s a point, Facebook advertising is cheap as.. has great analytics, I used it a few times around last year and it really did work! (I advertised my fb page, which in turn people went to my store)
avatar
@ Guardian: yeah unfortunately everybody is more into social media... speaking of does makestation have a Facebook page?
avatar
I've never had those campaigns work in the past. Just drained REAL quick. If you can't target a forum-accepting audience, it would probably be a waste on today's internet.
avatar
I wouldn't put that sort of money into advertising yet, IMHO if you have that sorta money spare for makestation, I'd use it on maybe a custom theme, getting some proper graphics done, get this place all tweaked out then find a few forums that offer advertising to a community that will appreciate make station at the same time as maybe a community referral competition? Tongue
avatar
hey darth, just keeping an occasional eye on things from my work lol, welcome back btw.
avatar
Hope everyone is well this monday evening!
avatar
So I just got an email that google is going to give me half off advertising if I spend $150 on it and give me $150 free. It sounds enticing but formal advertising literally did next to nothing for us before. Tongue
avatar
sounds very handy and a nice upgrade indeed.
avatar
We haven't had any issues thus far, but Spork ran an image host for years, his advice is worth heeding. Finna If people outside the community start using it, I can't afford 1TB/day lol. I'm looking into just making a plugin that makes a MyBB-integrated host. It'd have the plus of being very convenient from a user-standpoint, and it could be set to only serve images to this domain as well. If we run into issues at all, that should pretty much absolve them. Tongue
avatar
@darth: hey I won't tell anybody, makestation is sacred yo.
avatar
@Spork: That's something I'm a tad bit concerned about. Really hoping that it that stays within the MS community...
avatar
diggin up them holes... gunna dig up them graves... just gotta keep diggin all day, just keep grave digging all day.
avatar
Darth, when I was doing image hosting, I was pushing over 1TB per day. It will add up fast when it catches on, just a heads up Wink
avatar
Great NECRO!!!!

Necromancy necromancy all for the necromancy lol.

just popped in for a bit...now im off. cheers makestation ghosts

new thread ISP's and the CSR's that ruin your day, for those who want to share or are interested in just how bad CSR experiences can get.
avatar
@VSS and a good day to you too sir!
avatar
however the first mainly used chat was IRC, and you could link to it from BBS's (Bulliten Board systems, basically proto forums), you coudl also telnet into an IRC chat room in leu of an actual client.
avatar
theres spooky bro sup have a nice day
avatar
@"Darth-Apple" the precursor to chatrooms? well there was AOL Instant Messenger, ICQ, IRC... and then there was a sort of chat in the original BBS's as well but if you go back far enough, there's a command to send a message to someone else on the same server in unix... so back in the old school arpanet.

Good points. Typically, instead of having a verification email, I either do a setup where the user's first post has to be approved first in addition to a captch . . .
