Dear Observer and Cluesforum Members,

I find it appropriate to make my introductory post (to the newly vetted registrants) visible here. I appreciate the suggestions made by Observer, and I think they are largely addressed in this post below.

Many (if not most) of the concerns will be addressed (primarily by yours truly and Simon- at the time of this post anyway) specifically on a case by case basis. That’s far preferable to a “litmus test” of some sort.

And I have previously written about my opposition to any suggestion that we engage in, let alone impose a dogma of our own. Simon and I have discussed this point specifically, and we are in complete agreement as such.

Even though our “new registration process” is in its infancy, it is clear (at least to me) that he and I are more than equipped to do the vetting in the manner we have established thus far. It’s not perfect, but such a thing likely doesn’t (and never will) exist.

In any event, here is my post in the “Introduce Yourself to the Administrators” topic.

SacredCowSlayer » November 4th, 2018, 9:56 pm wrote:Dear New Registrants,

After your account is active, you will need to post here with some basic information about yourself.

Please include what led you to Cluesforum (and how long you have been reading here, if applicable), the topics you are primarily interested in, and what kind of life experience (personal or professional) you have that may be relevant to contributions you anticipate making.

Also, if you claim to know a victim (or a friend or family member of a victim) significantly connected to a news event that has been discussed on this forum, let us know that up front.

This is the exclusive Forum for New Registrants to post on at the outset. After review, and perhaps one or more exchanges with the Administrators here (prior to, and subject to Admin approval), your Group will be changed to that of an Active Member.

I recognize this is not ideal. But, this gives the Administrators here the opportunity to engage in some back and forth (if necessary) before the new registrant/member begins posting elsewhere on the Forum.

This will also serve to prevent the seemingly constant problem we have with new members having to be reminded to “please go introduce yourself.”

The only groups permitted to post here will be Administrators and New Registrants. So you need not worry about a “free for all” at the beginning from the entirety of Cluesforum.

Indeed, this particular thread will not even be available to be viewed by our members or guests. Please understand that your “handshake” Introduction here will (upon Admin approval) eventually need to be placed in our customary “Introduce Yourself” thread for the benefit of our members.

Thank you in advance, and please remember to become acquainted with this forum before posting.
I highly recommend becoming familiar with the following two topics before beginning to post here.

Please see Simon’s “TOUR GUIDE” to the September Clues research.

Then, to complete the picture, you should become acquainted with The Vicsim Report, and to drive the point home, you may find it helpful to read through some of what we refer to as The 9/11 Memorial Scams, which also exists here.

The concept of Vicsims is vitally important, since it isn’t exclusively a 9/11 method of Deception.

As a bonus (that I personally think is an “eye-opener”), you may look through the topic ”FALLING MAN”-the phony jumpers.

Sincerely,

SCS

Dear SCS without wishing to sound picky, isn’t It better to have people mention “any” newsworthy event whether discussed on CF or not (the latter being most pertinent)?
No disrespect to Kham but Observer’s point (IMO, that is) was that an event (not previously discussed on CF) was used in connection with an event that was being discussed.
Forgive the intrusion as your inclusion is a step in the right direction and this posting is not to open any sort of “debate” about any specifics.

Dear Pov603,

It’s possible that I’m simply tired and am therefore missing your message/suggestion here.
If you would like to send me a PM I would greatly appreciate it, and I’ll reply tomorrow.

Sincerely,

Question for the forum administration:
What is the reason for the color-coding of user names, besides letting the reader know whether the author of a post is in forum administration or simply a contributing member?

Not my idea, dear HonestlyNow - but I'd say it's not a bad one. After all, most forums I know of indicate (underneath each member's username) whether a member is this or that - so it's common practice, really. As you can see, SCS has made it so that four categories are indicated :
Legend: Administrators, Global moderators, Newly registered users, Registered users

That’s true. There’s nothing all that special about it. I find it helpful to me (for Administrative purposes) to be able to more quickly scan a page.

I tried to pick colors with a strong contrast, but different enough from one another to be useful.
In particular while the settings continue to be refined, I want to see VERY quickly (for example) in the event a “member” in the “newly registered users” group is (for some reason) able to post where they otherwise should not be able to.

With color-coding, it’s far less likely to get by me. I hope this makes sense.

Warmest Regards,
scs

Hmm. Okay, I’ll see what I can do about that.

Yeah, I obviously haven’t figured this out. Would you mind emailing me (use the email address in my signature line below-not through our email system, which isn’t working right now) with exactly what you are doing to receive that “MySQL Error” message?

And if you have a suggestion for how I can fix it, please of course include that in the email as well.
I’m trying to find somebody with tech expertise to assist here.

Sincerely,
scs

It's been awhile since I've posted and had to check the "How to" on embeds. For some reason my browser blocked the page due to an infect. Might want to check it.

So, when you click here, it won’t open?

Any other members having that problem?

You may need to clear the “cache” in your browser.

Here's a link to the screen shot: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1wI3zO9 ... RJRSx/view

I'll try clearing the browser cache. IIRC, it's happened in the past, again, could be on my end.

Weird. But you are able to otherwise navigate the forum?

It’s just that one page?

Thank you for letting me know. We are also having some other relatively minor “buggy” issues.
I’ll need to be looking for somebody to assist with upgrading the forum soon, as our present one is a bit out of date.

But I don’t want to screw it up by trying by myself.

And I learned in October that having the forum up (generally), even if imperfect, is preferable to it being down.

Thanks to all who bring these things to my attention.

Also, I might as well give an update concerning a few other things while I’m at it.

1. With regard to Fbenario’s reminder about the Mint statistics, I am still working on that. I thought I had it fixed the other day, but it’s still not showing up.

The good news is that the statistics are working, and are retrievable. The bad news is that they don’t appear on the forum.

Perhaps I will create a new topic whereby I load them from time to time- at least until that is resolved.

2. Regarding PMs- if you get an error when trying to send a PM, try removing any smilies. That “worked” for me a few days ago when I was trying to send a relatively simple PM to Simon.

3. Finally (for now), if anyone has issues here, please email me at the address below. And the return email from me will most likely be from clueman78 at outlook. Just FYI.

Thank you for your patience with me. I’m truly doing my best. And again (it’s worth repeating here), I’m still looking for an IT person (or near equivalent will do :) ) to help out with the technical issues here at CF.

Sincerely,
scs
