Title: ... And We're Back!
Post by: drinkanddestroy on October 03, 2014, 04:29:51 AM
I see the site is finally working again ... wtf happened for the last week?

The only other time I remember something like this happening was on the day the restored OUATIA was shown at Cannes a couple of years ago. CJ speculated that perhaps it's cuz there was so much traffic to the site then cuz it was a big Leone news day.
Now the site gets screwed up immediately after the same movie shows at the NYFF - think it has something to do with that? Are our servers unable to handle too many visitors on a big Leone news day?

or does it have nothing to do with that at all?

Andrea was afraid of adverse coverage and pulled the plug until after the release of the new blu. Apparently the disc is selling well enough (Drink ordered one) so Andrea has allowed us back on.

a long time ago the Metallica message boards (where the name drinkanddestroy originated https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLBpLz5ELPI ) were hacked ... they had to start all over again. I didn't join the discussion there much after that, kinda lost interest.
I hope the SLWB is backed up properly and we won't lose all the forums if there is a hack attack

why don't you send him a message and find out?

Personally, I think it would be good if he was no longer admin. From what i heard, it took him forever to reply to any messages... how about you try to get ahold of him and find out? Btw, does he own the site? Does Cenk Kiral?

I am sure the hosting fee isn't too much, if there are any issues there, I bet some of us - certainly myself - would be glad to help out on that front.

If we can have a normal administrator, who approves new members quickly and answers messages quickly, that would be awesome. How about you try to get ahold of him and let us know whats up  :)

Hmm, he probably would have let us know if otherwise... Right?! ???

Slightly hasty, wouldn't you agree?

Anyways, a message wouldn't kill anyone... CJ? :)

You're just discovering the Clint Eastwood forums? We've discussed them here and there over the years. The biggest mystery is I don't know how come I never registered there.
Now if we're launching an admin campaign I vote for Tucumcary Bound. Or John Baldwin.

I vote for you.

I had a good joke but I couldn't remember your former nickname, so it's spoiled now. I'll just take the job. I am the admin now.

It's a joke I would probably find funny. Seek help at once.

A myth, a spook story that criminals tell their kids at night. 'Rat on your pop and Cal will get you.'

Not the actual Keyser Söze, but an incredible simulation. And wasn't he also related to Rick Boyd?

He's related to most stuff. He's the one behind the dream theory and the whole scam about MNIN being directed by these "Valerii" guy (another of Cal's ridiculous nicknames: two "i"? Come on! You can do better!).

The "ii" is a stroke of genius. Not only is he signaling that he may have more than one identity, he's also demonstrating solidarity with Rastafarian skepticism of the cult of the individual (as in "The I and I are increasing. Babylon shall be overcome; Rasta.far.I")

I am not launching any "campaign" for myself for moderator. Just trying to make sure we get a moderator who is attentive.... I checked the Clint Eastwood forums a couple of times. They are awful, the damn moderators control so tightly. Every thread has strict parameters of what may or may not be discussed therein. And when the moderators decide a movie discussion is over, they close it so no further posts can be made. Like they occasionally used to have a "movie night" to watch a certain movie, and after a week they shut the thread from further discussion. F*** that. For some important movie like GBU, each element of the movie (eg. each performance, the editing, cinemataography) must be discussed in a separate thread the moderators create and control. I looked at that site maybe two or three times in my life. Never will do so again and never will register. Its a bunch of prison guards who run those boards. If they are reading this: i hope you and your mom get venereal disease at the same time. And your sister, too.

Total non sequitir: When the wild party animal known as Babe Ruth wanted to manage the Yankees, the boss famously said, "How can you manage the team when you can't even manage yourself?"

Important correction I need to make: When i mentioned previously that the SLWB should have a moderator who is attentive, I meant to say ADMINISTRATOR, not moderator. Needless to say, the SLWB has the greatest, most attentive and dedicated moderators of any message board in the world :)
And my criticism of the Eastwood Forum was about how the Moderators run it like a police state witrh everything so controlled as i mentioned above - I have no idea what the Administration of the Eastwood forum is like, since i've nothing to do with that board except checking it out a few brief times.

RE: the Administration of the SLWB, all I know is that when our moderators try to contact the Administration, it sometimes takes forever for the Admin. to respond. And it sometimes takes forever for new members to get approved here on the SLWB.
Anyway, if any of you are masochistic enough to subject yourself to the prison wardens on the Eastwood Forum, enjoy.

 But my point is (and I have reasonable reason to suspect that I am not the only one here at the SLWB who feels this way  ;D ), that it would be good if we had an Administrator who got stuff done quickly here at the SLWB. I have no idea if Cal is still here or not, all I know is, I think it would be good if CJ and/or another one of our moderators was given Administrative capabilities.

Now, most important thing is this: I have reasonable reason to suspect that if anyone here is technologically capable and interested in helping out with approving new members and distinguishing legitimate new members from spammers, their services would be appreciated and they should send a PM to Cigar Joe. That is one of the main issues for an aministrator/moderator.: being able to quickly approve new members and being able to weed out the bad guys, who are trying to post ads or do other cyber mischief, and ban them permanently. If anyone can help, please PM CJ. Someone is needed to assist with that. whoever can do that, that would be appreciated, pm cigar joe. Thanx :)
