What changed to cause a drop off in ad revenue? I imagine Jude took a lot of front page hits with him when he left. If Jude were still here and acting as a sort of good-natured liaison between the site staff and the forum posters, more people would probably consider contributing to a call for funds. Over the years the virtual walls between site staff and forum posters have grown thicker and thicker.

Will there be a couple of days notice? Nah - just like the Grim Reaper, it will appear when you least expect it and bam, down we all go. But seriously, yes there are plenty of other websites out there if you are looking for forums but its sort of like bondage - people are so tied down that it restricts their ability to express themselves freely. Some people are into that but I dont like to be ordered about.


Oh no you beg to be bound you shouldn't be ordered into it or you're probably just in a Japanese hidden cam show.

If worse comes to worse and we have to move to another, "more restricted" site, just deal with it. As long you're not doing anything disrespectful or obviously trolling and/or performance posting you shouldn't have anything to worry about. Okay, so we might have to cut back on the frequent swearing, but so fucking what?



Oh .. shit.

Space. The Final Frontier. When audiences tuned in earlier, our brave members boarded the USS Outhousers to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where nobody has gone before --

this is just a gypsy curse. The rate for cost of living is raising faster than at any point in the last decade. What changed ten years ago? The earthquake in China where the demon was let loose. If we capture Nick Spencer and force him back into confinement under that Chinese hilltop again then the market rates will bottom out and the real players will land on their feet. When we opened up to Chinese investors we spread our legs for Chinese tea prices and we must stop having anything to do with the price of tea in China. Whole Foods probably has translated tea leaves now for the free trade waiters.

Sounds to me like the forums will be rebooted, losing everything already there, but with the option to start fresh....including the forums...would save initially at least on DB space. And allow the site to be more easily transferred to cheaper hosting.

Then again, maybe I'm just reading my hopes into that. :smt102

I really don't know. Jude probably took a good chunk out when he left but that was further back than when I noticed the last major drop.

Jude was a special kind of guy who could post crazy numbers of articles while working a full time job, do quick fixes when the site was messing up, and still interact on the forums like he was unemployed. That is a talent I don't think anyone else I've ever met has. Or wants! Jude did all that without getting paid beyond the tiny amount that we were able to pay contributors back then.

And I'm never gonna understand the divide thing, obviously because I'm probably on the other side of it. But anyone can write for the front page. Well, a few people CAN'T write for us but that's because they HAVE written for us and they've consistently gotten us in trouble. Everyone else COULD if they wanted to. It just takes the motivation to DO so. We could always use help. You don't even have to try to be funny or anything. Most of us aren't. :lol:
