Tricia is not going to be happy about this...

And neither are the Tropers, come to think of it.

Thank God! I think this is a great move; I hope this goes well Dan!

Though... I suppose it's bittersweet, in that we're going to lose the forum, and it'll be a while before everyone switches over to the new board.

So does this mean you'll no longer be working for Keenspot at all?

I won't be directly connected with Keenspot, though they'll still be selling my books for the time being.

I'm honestly not certain what this means for mayhem. I'm ok with Keenspot keeping it around, but then it becomes their responsibility. What I'm hoping will happen is that some sort of arrangement is made where it stays around and a couple of trusted people are made mods, but that will be up to the Crosbies. I think an argument can be made for the amount of page views it must generate for them, however.

well, I made an account there with this name, but I can't do anything. Like at all. And I got the email and did what it told me to do. So, I guess I have to wait for it to work?

If there is a sudden flood of bunnies it might take a little time. It will get worked out or contact them if it doesn't. 910 has good people behind the scenes.

Wait, so does that mean that we're sharing a forum with the Wotchers now? Well, I don't mind, but you realize this isn't going to help with some of the people clamoring for a crossover :P

Anyway, I already had an account over there as Herald Loveall, so I guess I'll see ya'll there.

I can't post there either. In any part of the forum. The successful registration message said an admin has to approve the registration before I can post.

Hell, I'm not even allowed to fill out my own damn profile.

Yeh...I'm not really sure how exactly they intend to go through and preview each new profile...

wigi boards maybe?
MARTIN: What?
DANIEL: Okay. One, that's Star Trek; and two, it's ridiculous.
MARTIN: What's wrong with it?
CARTER: "The singularity is about to explode?"
MARTIN: Yes.
CARTER: Everything about that statement is wrong.
DANIEL: How exactly is having weapons at maximum going to help the situation?
MARTIN: The audience isn't going to know the difference. They love: "weapons at maximum."
MITCHELL: Never underestimate your audience. They're generally sensitive, intelligent people who respond positively to quality entertainment.
TEAL’C: I do not understand why everything in this script must inevitably explode.
MARTIN: Look, you guys may all know how things really work out there in the galaxy, but I know the film business. Explosions make great trailers. Simple fact. More explosions, better trailer. Better trailer, more viewers.

I've approved some of the accounts. Basically, if you've registered tonight and dealt with the confirmation e-mail, you should be set up. I'll be checking periodically myself for such accounts.

Hand-approving all new accounts? That'll keep you busy.

And you're already too busy.

I hope the split with Keen is amicable.

I'm going to go by my actual name there. I tried to follow the local custom and use a nickname, but it bugs me every time. My name is "Carl" and that's what I just signed up as over at 910CMX.

I sure hope you can work something out for Mayhem, Dan. I'll be very sad if carrot..? should go away.

I didn't have any particularly strong feelings on going independant until it was said it'll mean becoming the Wotch's neighbour.

I love this move. Less forum-hopping is a good thing.

... and maybe the fact that I've had an account there for a long while....

...

At any rate, good choice, Dan! No more laggy Keenspot with phpBB forums!

At this point, people associate you and noxy so closely that they assume you share the same opinions. Noxy is unhappy, thus you must be unhappy. Your vulcan mind meld demands it.
