Title: Leone Web Board - Stepping Down
Post by: Cal on November 24, 2015, 11:04:26 AM
Hi everyone, I wanted to let you all know that beginning immediately, due to lack of time and many other commitments, I will no longer be running this Sergio Leone website and discussion board. Its been a great experience but its time for me to step aside and move on. On a very positive note, another person (Richard Jordan) will be taking it over and has plans to keep it going for all to enjoy. I wish I had the time and desire to do more with the site, but I am a full-time webmaster for a busy college which eats up just about every online minute of my day. This site deserves much more time dedicated to it than I have been able to provide it.  So, I think in the long run, this will be a good thing and  the new owner will not only keep it running, but will make it all that it can and should be for present and future visitors.  I just wanted to let you know what was up. You guys have been awesome throughout the years and I am forever grateful for your help and participation. I wish you all the best.

Sincerely,
Cal Anderson

Cal, thanks for the parting note. I'm sure there are many things we should thank you for over the years, but you've been so much in the background it's hard to know all you've done for us. Still, it's amazing that you've kept this board going for so long. If the new owner is half as good a steward as you have been, we won't have reason to complain. Please enjoy your SLWB retirement.

Thanks for everything, Cal. I can't put it any better than dj did, so I will just say that I second his very nice, and well-deserved, note. Good luck!

Welcome aboard, Richard :)

Cal, you've been some kind of legendary animal here, like a unicorn. About once every year, someone said "I'll ask Cal." and nobody knew how/where this mythical Cal was contacted but we would wake up one morning with a brand new Ennio Morricone section.
Thanks for the good under the surface work, you kept a tight ship here.

Richard, welcome!

Thank you all for helping this specialty, but important, site going !!!  There is so much art that needs to be remembered, so much unique collaborations of direction, story, music, cinematography, etc. etc.

So I noticed that the latest ad on the login page is DATE ARAB WOMEN ;D ;D

Is that the kind of change that is now coming to the board?

I mean, I have an open mind, but the ads showig those skimpy little dresses ... that doesn't leave much place to hide the bomb??

Lol.  That is weird.  They are automatic...should be shown only to non members or on non-discussion board pages.

They are supposed to target the audience although I do not have any interest in dating arab women online.

when I login now on my smartpjone, it is no longer showing the site for dating Arab women. Instead, it is a site for dating Muslims 👳

richard,

Is there any way you have of controlling the ads that show up on the login page for smartphones?

When I log in on my smartphone, ads usually show up, and one of them seems pretty shady, maybe a spam site. It's like this whole paragraph-long ad for some site for older men who want to date younger women and says go to the site and we'll email you pics blah blah blah. (I'd take a screencap and show it to you but it is a pain in the ass to post photos here.) I am afraid that if while I am logging in, I accidentally click on that, it'll take me to a spam/malware site.

Log in from a smartphone a few times, that ad will come up eventually.

Any way to control this shit?

I don't care what ads there are, as long as all the sites are legit, i.e. no virus/malware shit.

Thanks!  O0

That is bad.

Yes.  I can block ad categories.  I blocked dating.
