Everyone needs to message 'someone' from the Admin team and explain how you feel...
Now,

Well.no I shan't.  They know how you guys received it. That's enough. If they can't be bothered then neither can I . Will cancel my ickonic subscription while I'm at it.

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'.
 

 

I would assume some of the options can be disabled (via backend) ie. remove the feeds/discussions, so that you are left with just a forum.

However, as you say, the forum might not be that intuitive anyway as most of functionality is social media orientated.

 

However, to disable those functions, you would have to somehow contact 'admin' to tell 'webmaster' to click on something ...

They don't seem interested in communicating or feedback.
(Also- discussions split / splinter if you reply to one comment in the middle of a 'thread'. lt doesn't take a quote and place it at the bottom. Threads turn into something like tree roots and are impossible to follow all the branches / splits properly)

Hang fire with that Kj .... you never know? You may like the new 'place'! .... and what is happening here is no reason not to support Davids work!

 

Also .... I am waiting for a reply from Gareth (yes it has been 22 hours since he contacted me and I replied  and if he doesn't like your message then he don't reply to it .... but maybe he is just thinking about it?) Give it a bit of time.

 

As Basket has just posted .... the new forum plugin is much more suited to a twitter interaction and not researched forum discussion.

Is it to obvious to say - can't they just ressurect the old forum? We go back to using that. Transfer the threads this one has left, chalk it up to experience and re-open what was the legendary old forum. Wipe the banned members list so anyone that was banned can come back across and hope some of the old members who didn't follow across to this site come back to the old one.

 

Seems a logical step if selecting and setting up a new one is proving to be so difficult.

Under £400 .... not that much really. The 'theme' on the new one .... £200 (and I bet the webmaster charged much more than that?)

It has been shifting towards this since the name of the forum became "Social" ....

 

Gareth has no interest in forums , he never posts here except admin .... because he has no  knowledge of the subject ...And yet he conducts interviews on Iconik !!! with people like Simon Parkes ....lol 

 

So it will end up dumbed down ... people making stupid one line comments .... suited for Gareth's generation

Whats the name of the forum you said an old member here set up please Oz? You mentioned it before on this forum but I forgot what it's called.

If the new forum turns out that bad I wil jump ship.

Only......... if you LET them  :classic_dry:

 

The old forum was thriving when it closed. I saw no good reason to close the old forum. It's the lack of good forums like the old DIF that make people join social media sites like Twitter.  I liked the old forum very much, it was pretty much everything you'd want from a forum, lay out wise.

It's all one and the same though . I don't know if the Icke's get that.  For me anyway. David's books woke me up....But left me terrified..it was coming here..amongst like minded people ...able to interact, discuss learn and put things into perspective that did the main healing and learning. A lot of what David puts together is out there in one form or another.

 

I believe you show your true self and character by actions not just words. And so far the actions to people here are not what I would have expected. I'm still hoping things change for future people - but have sent a request into grumpys forum. @Grumpy Owl can you double check it as I made an error-when you get a minute x 

 

 I'm perfectstorm over on crowhouse and still kj35 for grumpys.

Yes it is but I am just saying that there is no need to act yet .... you don't need to dump Ickonic right now.

Lets see what happens .... I have emailed Gareth again asking for an answer!
