are you a major, tom?
avatar
tom here doing what he does best, reporting the spammers
avatar
the final half of lonesome crowded west starting with cowboy dan is better than music
avatar
right, that's my point thomas, see at least here in america, probably elsewhere, the number of shootings is increasing partially because of immitators, people following other people, be it off a cliff or shooting others.. eh forget it.
avatar
Idk what it has to do with going lemmings though. Lemmings follow each other off cliffs.
avatar
plus they're both small animals irl, wouldn't be the first time birds imitated mammals
avatar
well... the world is going nutz right? public death ratings are on an insane rise, and if you know anything about lemmings well... and kiwi's is a term for newzelanders so... yeah, don't blame me I learned about this at simtropolis ages ago, from prens, who's from NZ
avatar
wat
avatar
so the kiwi's are finally going full lemmings?
avatar
new zealand shooting. crazy stuff Sad
avatar
Nice sig Thomas. Wink
avatar
Being a boss.
avatar
I wonder what darth has been up to lately?
avatar
Tongue
avatar
lol
avatar
Wooo! Get rekt brian51. member of the year here
avatar
You both get it. A runoff would be if there were 3 or more, and 2 tied. With 2, the results could end up the same. So, in recognition of both of your contributions, you both win. Smile
avatar
@Guardian clearly since there's a tie for member of the year, we need to have a runoff election between just me and brian.
avatar
All I know is that I hope brian51 wins. He truely is an awesome dude.
avatar
maybe flip a coin or roll some dice?
avatar
I can't, I already voted.
avatar
...we have a tie for Member of Year vote. Someone needs to go break that today please.
avatar
Tongue yeah yeah
avatar
See several of them actually already do, my dudes... Brian has done good work there. Finna
avatar
What Spook said. Tongue
avatar
here's the real question, how do we get them to hang out here? lol
avatar
rofl, Tongue
avatar
That's a really good idea. The folks at SM actually have an SM discord already. I wonder if they'd be cool with us hanging out there being that it already exists (to support them a bit of course). I'll have to ask Brian about it. Finna
avatar
What if we had a Makestation discord?
avatar
yeah it's really nice. Tongue I've never seen my work machien move so fast lol.
avatar
Nice!
avatar
Woot, I'm finally using linux at work! I'm super stoked!
avatar
Go vote people!
avatar
Yeah, it did have a retro feel to it.
avatar
yeah but... I liked having a visible counter on my site, sort of a throw back to the old days... but that's ok, I guess it did free up more space on the sidebar now.
avatar
Ah, that sucks. Try the analytics route, you can track better, see where people are coming from, and it doesn't reset.
avatar
argh, my visitor counter broke Sad well I guess it's fine lol, and I'm still getting stuff on my guestbook too so I'm happy with that at least lol.
avatar
Polls have been posted. Go vote!
avatar
What do you want to fix about it?
avatar
Tongue
avatar
And all I did was fix the "Make them Famous" div on the sidebar, then I changed my user class back to Member.
avatar
last night I dreamt I was an administrator of this forum
avatar
go!
avatar
yo!
avatar
oh!
avatar
lol maybe, whatever the cause I think it's awesome
avatar
Showing 146 for me. Wonder if it changes for each of us depending on our time zone? Tongue
avatar
we're already at 20 today lol
avatar
indeed ^_^
avatar
132 on the day, 60 from Spooky. Not bad at all.
avatar
XD woot! yeah I'm always looking forward to seeing things develop and grow, and we're deffinetly in an active period... our Galactic neucleus has become a quasar! Finna
avatar
I think 191 is probably our actual standing record. Guys, we're going to be breaking this very soon. MS is in one of its more active times I think we've ever had. Guardian is correct, the 2K is in fact from when we imported the SMF forum. We were on different software for a couple months before we converted to MyBB. Finna
avatar
rest well guardian
avatar
gn
avatar
Alright, time for me to go for the night. Have a good one ya'll, and keep the posting going!
avatar
hereby closes Thomas' closing of the shoutbox.
avatar
Tongue
avatar
it's open again
avatar
SHOUTBOX IS CLOSED
avatar
That one day was probably the import from the original SMF forum. The database just sees the first 2k as happening on the same day. So, 191 it is.
avatar
according to the database other than opening day (which had over 2K posts in one day... what?! XD) it seems like most posts in one day was 191, but today is certainly on the higher end of the norm. Cool
avatar
If this isn't up there, I would be surprised. Would take a query of the database to find out. I don't have access to it. Tongue Ask Darth
avatar
hey, any idea what the most posts in a day ever was for makestation?
avatar
indeed, tons of activity to drive interest
avatar
Plenty of fodder for others.
avatar
activity is always good Cool
avatar
lol, true XD
avatar
Stats show the busiest day of the past 30 days. 51 posts so far.
avatar
indeed! lol
avatar
Posts are flying tonight. Tongue
avatar
Poke Tongue
avatar
rofl, well I guess if you want to isolate dissabling pm's is one way to do it lol.
avatar
Thanks. Tongue The 'options' page has a lot of fine-tuning for users. Most never even look at it.
avatar
That's the first that I've heard that it can even be disabled. MyBB has some interesting features here and there... Finna
avatar
Enabled! I have no clue how I did that
avatar
Enable PMing real quick. Tongue
avatar
Thomas, I can't respond to your PM since you've disabled it.
avatar
it really is, as a resistance player I can say it's a lot of fun, I'm almost to level 8 now!
avatar
Never even heard of ingress. It sounds so awesome.
avatar
Tongue
avatar
bah, you were supposed to find the icon that linked to it lol
avatar
avatar
avatar
Found it
avatar
been working on my website mostly... can you find the hidden page? lol
avatar
indeed! lol. work is slow, got nothing better to do XD
avatar
A lot of posts today!
avatar
Cool
avatar
Thank you good Sir.
avatar
I went ahead and pinned the annoucement so it's easy to see, hope that's alright darth.
avatar
woot! Cool
avatar
Y’all, big news. Check out the announcements section, we’re expecting an awesome turnout for Makestation’s first-ever!
avatar
I thought I declared it permanently open? lol... *tosses any attempts to close it into the singularity opened in the counting thread.
avatar
Everytime. Tongue
avatar
Thank you kindly for your decree, good sir
avatar
this shoutbox is hereby CLOSED
avatar
Welcome to the community, everyone!
avatar
effone!
avatar
Hello D/A
avatar
Smile Everyone is so welcoming and friendly.
avatar
indeed! I'm stoked!
avatar
Yep, it's a good time!
avatar
No posts in the introductions forum for half a year and then all of a sudden 4 new members! Welcome!
avatar
Haha, true that. At least we have the "purge spammer" button now. In the old days it was much more difficult to wipe out mass-spam accounts. Finna
avatar
wow geebus, glad we really only get heavy hits on a monthly-ish basis
avatar
We've used recaptcha before, and it turned out spam was an even worse problem then than it is now... There will be some work done on all of it at some point. Finna
avatar
True, honestly I think the login system could use some tweaking but that's up to darth
avatar
It's definitely not fool proof, but it's a lot better than whatever's on the current registration page.
avatar
@Thomas: even recaptcha isn't completely fool proof though. and bots are getting smarter and smarter all the time.
avatar
Use recaptcha on the registration
avatar
yeah, couple times I've had to clear it out.
avatar
Good lord, I think enough spam hit this site. Finna
avatar
spam
avatar
hammered it
avatar
spm
avatar
bah, netflix is fine, they've got some nice original stuff these days.
avatar
Someone from Netflix
avatar
I'm being controlled by someone from the future.
avatar
Is there a captcha?
avatar
you know I'll never understand why makestation get's targeted on an almost monthly basis by spambots... or how they get through the security.
avatar
killed it. Thanks Thomas.
avatar
flim flam there's a spam man
avatar
Tongue
avatar
Happy 7th birthday @Darth-Apple!
avatar
Merry Christmas Thomas! Good to see you still popping in!
avatar
merry christmas all!
avatar
interference engine?
avatar
I'm sorry to hear about that @Zalost. Do you know if it an interference engine? Hope you're able to get back on the road quickly!
avatar
Going the bike route is a great way to save money and get in shape!
avatar
it's the saving up $'s for parts that's the most frustrating part, I might get an electric bicycle or something in the mean time so we'll see how this plays out.
avatar
thanks, I'm somewhat hopeful to have my car working by... march?
avatar
Oh dang, good luck with that!
avatar
so more info now, the timing chain really did mess up, it ended up interfering with the pistons and valves creating a pressure issue, howver I'm confident I can get things working again, worst case, another engine is around $1100 so not the worst case in the world... just time, but I'm going to try to repair it first while I get the money together for a new engine and the equipment to install it.
avatar
Sorry to hear that @Zalost! Hope you're able to get back on the road quickly!
avatar
and on a side note... my car died today, the engine timing chain messed up bad and affected the engine. so I'm looking for a temp car to get me to work but I'm hoping to fix my car and bring it back to life.
avatar
you think that will save you human? muahahaha! RELEASE THE BOTS!
avatar
don't let them do that to you
avatar
DECLARE INDEPENDENCE
avatar
The world is not what you decree. The world is what it is. Big Grin

avatar
I hereby declare the shoutbox permanently open, forever.
avatar
Happens to us all. Smile
avatar
sorry guys, I've been playing a lot of ingress, and IRL stuff but I'm back now.
avatar
Got it taken care of.
avatar
lots of spam on the forum...
avatar
Why do you hate the shoutbox so much Thomas? Tongue
avatar
THIS SHOUTBOX IS CLOSED
avatar
Darth-Apple: go ahead, I'm using it on my site lol
avatar
Nice... I wanna see! Finna
avatar
not sure how I missed it but... apparently CSS text shaders can give text a neat Old school Phospher screen effect.
avatar
yeah lol
avatar
We're not far off if it's the one I imagine...
avatar
no problem Tongue I'm actually planning on changing one of them when a certain thread get's over 2000 posts.
avatar
Like the header banners @leo. Thanks for keeping them up to date! Finna
avatar
woot!
avatar
I got a buddy that would probably join.
avatar
Agreed. Gonna try and see if I can get a few friends on here as well.
avatar
we really need about 5 or 6 more people who post consistently.
avatar
Just enough, but never enough!
avatar
indeed!
avatar
Activity seems to be picking up a bit again. Big Grin

Yep, still a great one!
avatar
I would agree, makestation's over all design is a great one Cool.
avatar
Guys, it will only be a few short months before we will have had the same design for five years. I suppose it has stood the test of time. ?
avatar
yass brewers are going
avatar
Hola
avatar
yo
avatar
hi
avatar
I noticed Cool maybe useful on holidays or something? lol
avatar
Oh and by the way you can pin announcements to make them stay even if it's on random mode. Not sure if we need it, but it's there. Tongue
avatar
It turned out great Leo, thank you. A refresh was much needed. Finna
avatar
personally I like the way it turned out
avatar
a few days ago, the option simply wasn't ticked and some new stuff had to be added, so the options were to either have it randomly display something from a message pool or to have a bunch of stuff on the top.
avatar
Ah that's what I thought. When did it get the auto change update?
avatar
Believe it or not it's always been there, the quote was just static, with more messages and a settings change they now change on each page load
avatar
Is the rotating quote message a new feature or have I just missed it all the time? :o
avatar
Thanks guys. Working on figuring out what my next steps are currently. Should be situated within a few weeks.
avatar
holy shit i'm so sorry
avatar
Oh no! Take care of yourself Darth!
avatar
No way man hope your all good! @Darth
