Web Site Announcements / Leone Web Board - Stepping Down
« 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

Web Site Announcements / Web Board Updates
« on: December 29, 2006, 08:04:16 AM »
As many of you have noticed, this board has been updated. Unfortunately due to the fact that the old board had so may hacks and tweaks, running any update out of the box removes those old hacks and in some cases brings on new problems. I am working on solving these but there are many bugs that are present right now that will need to be dealt with in the short term. There are still some major things I am working on that might take days/weeks to resolve. Please post any MAJOR issues you have seen or email them to me directly.  Thanks for your patience!

PS - The sporadic SERVER ERROR screen that appears is due to sotware my WEB HOST uses to manage all the sites. They are aware of the issue but can not tell me when this will be fixed. I am VERY disappointed with this answer but will keep you all posted. Please contact me if this becomes more frequent so I can let them know. Thanks.

Web Site Announcements / Looking for a moderator for this forum!
« on: February 27, 2005, 11:06:04 PM »
OK, here is the deal. Apparently as of late, there have been one to many jackoffs lurking around this board with intentions of ruining it for the majority of visitors. I appologize that have not been as frequent a visitor as I would like but the solution here is that this board now needs a full time moderator.

So, if anyone is interested, please PM your reasons directly to me. Specify why you would like to moderate this board and any other specifics you feel you'd like to share.

I'm looking for someone who enjoys Sergio Leone, has a level head and has not had a history of getting into it with other members.  Need someone who can frequent the board often as well. This is not something you'd get paid for either, it's strictly on a volunteer basis. If you think you fit the bill, please PM me.

Thanks.

A Fistful of Dollars / Final scene - thoughts!
« on: November 24, 2002, 08:52:49 PM »
Don't get me wrong, I love this film. However, this is a fairly new board and I need to start some discusions  ;)

So.....

Did anyone feel the final scene may have been a bit over the top and unrealistic? I think Clint was taking a huge chance confronting 'Johnny Wels' with just a plate of metal over his chest. I mean, c'mon, one hit to the head and that's all she wrote, no? In all the other films, including this one, Clint takes on 3, 4, and even 5 men at once single handedly with hi pistol. Why not confront him armed and simply take him out? Just seems a bit risky the way it was played out if you ask me. But truly enjoyable none-the-less. :)

Trivia Games / Where's Ponch! (and I don't mean from CHIPS!)
« on: November 24, 2002, 08:42:04 PM »
True or False?

It was Eastwood's idea for The Man With No Name to where the famous 'poncho'?

2nd part.

Where is it today?
