Big Announcement Unites Forum

Recommended Posts

I hope and pray that, whatever happens, there will be a functioning and fruitful forum that lends itself to discussion and learning. 

 

True story...?... I am a semi-long time (a little over ten years) into what many call the rabbit hole. I belong to different forums, but have never belonged to "conspiracy theory" forums. I had lurked and searched of course. The old  DI forum was not a place I went incredibly often but did from time to time. When coronavirus hit, I thought to myself "I need to create an account somewhere." DI was my first thought. I signed up, surprised to see the old site gone.  

 

Anyway, ... I look forward to the future. I appreciate all of you.

It's not going to have anything to do with Facebook, it will just be 'like Facebook'.

 

See https://www.buddyboss.com/ and click the 'Try Demo' button if you want to get an idea.

 


Which is basically shit.
lt's not a forum as we know it,even though it has 'a forum add-on'.
lt';s a fucked up pile of shit that no-one is going to like.
This is a MASSIVE backwards step.........a dumbing down of DIF :classic_dry:

That's going to be an expensive lesson to learn if it is.


There will be no 'lesson' here for anyone, least of all Gareth.......the forum will simply die....everyone will go their seperate ways...end of.
lt'll be good for Gareth though, as he won't keep getting annoying messages and emails , so he can spend more time on Twatter.

A picture paints a thousand words ???

 

Ladies and Gentlemen (and inbetweeners)......l give you the new platform 'header title image'.
 

 

 

Amateur, amateur or amateur........which one is it ? A perfect example of the time, effort and care that has gone into this 8 / 9 week 'project'.....  :classic_laugh::classic_laugh::classic_laugh:

Neither will l.
lt's the death of DIF staring us all in the face.
Not from 'Bots'......not from 'Hackers', but from Admins shortsightedness and indifference  :classic_dry:

I had a play around with the BuddyBoss 'demo sandbox', and came up with this. Not wanting to boast or anything, but took less than ten minutes to customise the header using the current DI Social logo and colours.

Being on the site for 10 hours with ink, Eve and Screaming, l found it to be like a maze of mirrors trying to navigate around and follow anything anyone else was posting.
There are 'Newsfeeds'.......there are 'Feeds'....there are 'Discussions'.....each in each different 'box' or 'subject'. Too many different places to input. Too many options and possibilities.
Some you can only add text, some you can add text and / or pictures.
lt's disjointed and clumsy. 

lt will not promote and help healthy flowing discussion.
lt a massive backwards step from where we are right now in this compromised forum.
l'd rather stay right here as it is than wander aimlessly around in that fucked up bullshit excuse forv 'social forum platform'.

Gareth and his 'webmaster' (LOL) have a much better header than you and it only took 9 weeks...  :classic_rolleyes: 
Can you see what this suggests for the rest of the 'new forum' ? Can you guess the level of attention and care that has gone into 'the guts of it' ??
This is why l wasted over 1o hours of my time, because no time has really been spent setting this up. 
Saying it is a half-hearted effort is being very very generous..

@Grumpy Owl was it you who set up a forum if so can I have the link as I signed up. Would it be worth migrating to there?

 

This sounds the best idea ..... 

 

The miss management and incompetence has been unending for years on DI forums .... now the moderators have thrown up their hands I can only see things getting worse .....

 

Grumpy Owl's forum is a clean sheet , we should all relocate there .....

 

I put it all down to ET mind control .... everyone is subject to this to get them going along with wearing masks etc .... people in important  positions , like Gareth and David  will be subject to an extra dose of mind control  , to encourage bad decisions ... this is what caused the end of TPV and DIforums....

Having played with the demo sandbox myself, it does look like it would be a very useful platform for certain types of website, in fact I may even consider using it myself for another project I'm involved with.

 

But as a 'pure discussion forum', I don't think it fits what forum members here really want.

Yep, http://thegrumpyowl.co.uk/forum/

 

I'm not going to go around actively encouraging people to join, I made it clear from the start I wanted it as a 'backup' place for people to post information. And I don't intend to 'rival' or replace any other forum, including this one.

 

I'll stick around here and on the 'new' Social once it goes live, I'm prepared to give it a chance. Mine is a simple, basic forum, no frills, but does a job. If you want to come and join, that's great, if you don't, that's your choice. I've also joined the Crowhouse Community, looking forward to having a good browse through there too.

That looks great......just like you'd expect from professionals after 9 weeks.
This is exactly why l've got the ball ache.
4 of us wasted a whole frustrating day on something someone hasn't spent more than 2 hours on.

Yeah 'Webmaster' has basically taken 2 months to load a 'theme', uncustomised, of which the forum part is incidental.

But saying this...it isn't all about how it looks.
Beneath the 'shit exterior' is an even shitter way of interacting.. :classic_angry:

I will be interested to see how well the 'migration' of existing posts from here has been implemented.

 

Anyway I'm done here for the day, have a garden that needs tending to. See you all on the new site!

We need suggestions of decent forums to escape to.
Max Igans Crowhouse being one.

Going to sign up to both. Thanks for fighting for this place I appreciate it most if not all do. You must feel dejected trying to work with all this shit. 

 

Worst possible time which not going to lie leaves a.bitter taste in my mouth. We are literally living through the agenda David warned about for years. 

 

Anyways I have had my say. If this is the last day it was nice knowing you all (most) ? :(

Exactly.
Worst planetary crisis conspiracy after WW2 and the most famous and well known forum is delayed, delayed. delayed and then miss managed.
Great huh ? :classic_dry:
