http://the-diplomat.com/2012/04/04/signs-of-a-new-tiananmen-in-china/?all=true The title's misleadingly provocative, but this is an interesting analysis of how China's political system is facing real challenges.
There used to be a time when I used to keep refreshing my home page to see what was new on the forums. Now there's just so much trash talk and so many muted threads/people that my forum column on the home page is just empty. Screw you trolls. You ruined my webdip experience.
Hi forum! I'm in two games right now and will drop down to 0 pretty soon. I'd like to start a new game with those interested. It will be: WTA, non-anon (preferred), 2-day phases, 25 buy-in. Please post interest below. I'll set up the game next week (likely), and if we generate enough interest, maybe multiple games.
Since ti seems like there are some comic book fans on here I was wondering if anyone else was contemplating going to this: http://www.amctheatres.com/movie-news/2012/03/amc-theatres-presents-the-ultimate-marvel-marathon
Hey - bought the 360 for Christmas and love it...except I miss multiplayer gaming from my endless years of PC gaming. What good 360 games are there -- and would there be interest in settingupa league of some sort? (LOVE my NCAA football, if you need a beat down...)
Today is Palm Sunday....on Friday we mourn the death of the greatest man to walk the Earth. Though He was both God and yet man. For those of you who do not realize the sheer magnitude of God's Love and sacrifice through this gesture of Grace, I would like for you to go out, purchase a Bible, and read the whole thing.
And the Bad News Just Keeps Marching In For Eden...
http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/nflpa-warns-players-may-face-criminal-charges-bounty-155246283.html Even if charges aren't brought against any players...wow, now they need lawyers? More and more, the Raiders are seriously in jeopardy of losing that "dirtiest team" mantle, fair or not, to the Saints...that SB win isn't looking as clean anymore (which is a shame, to be fair...)
Ah, i hadn't thought about server demands. i don't really know anything about that, so this is me smiling blankly and nodding ; )
The other thing, is with the forum, how come we just have the one long list of threads? There are lots of free forum hosting places where you can get (from what i recall) unlimited space if you allow a banner add, or that only cost a few dollars to get no adds. Would it be much more space to have the organization for the forum than it is to just have things as they are, or is it just that we like it how things are?
There are several reasons for initially having the simple forum:
1) Kestas wanted to keep things simple 2) It's hard to integrate most forums into a sight. For instance, you would need to log into the forum *and* log into the site separately, which would really split the site.
Personally, I like this style. It keeps things fresh and moving and encourages people to make posts that prompt discussion, otherwise they die.
that's fair, but what happens with threads where a few people are into the thread, but they only log on at certain hours? The conversation, which might be a very worthy one, is lost because by the time the next poster is on, the thread has vanished.
One thing i was wondering, the stars are threads you have posted in right? would there be any way to set a filter or something so that you could have an option to put the active starred threads as having priority over the active non starred?
@AM:Sometimes it just seems like the 'post last to win' threads end up dominating the forum... Mute the "post last to win" and other uninteresting threads, then you should see more older but interesting threads.
