Oh noes!

I admit, I was confused too when I saw the new look. But I've been poking around, learning about the new changes, and it looks pretty cool.

Step 1) When you're confused or something is different, don't freak out.

Step 2) Read about what's going on. Michael's going on vacation. They've implemented some new site tools and things have changed.

Step 3) Poke around. Log into your account. Check out the customized front page option.

Step 4) Have that "holy crap" moment when you realize that you're now completely in charge of what you see from the front page of the DP. They've implemented a site aggregation tool that allows you to see what you want from practically the entire site with relative granular control. You can choose to just see posts that have been promoted by mods to the front page. Or you can pull info from the various forums and select what you want to see, contained within a measure of "popularity" that you set.

LOL cmon guys are you

LOL cmon guys are you serious? It is so obvious a cat can do it. If you got to the weird new page just scroll to the bottom and click on the button that says "Restore to Default Front Page Settings". If you don't know how to get back to it click on the customize button on the top. Cmon, think before you post!

Thank you.

I would like reiterate what you said last, and to to encourage everyone to think before you post!

For if you don't, it may be your last post!

He's the man.

Hey Nick, you hate the front page?

Well let me tell you something, I HATE POSTS LIKE THIS!!!

Why? There is no thought or care taken by you in any way shape or form. You have no manners. You use bad grammar, poor and inconsistent capitalization. And those are just stylistic issues. On a deeper level, you lack any kind of sensitivity, understanding, patience. Your post is nothing but negativity and DEMANDS: Me, me, me!!! It is all about me!

To see such a post is really very, very discouraging to me and the administrators of the Daily Paul who work so hard to keep this site going on a daily basis.

Well, sorry Nick. The days of the DP giving a platform to people all a voices - no matter how vile, ridiculous, or rude, are over. Not all posts, or opinions are created equally.

You can comment, but until you learn some manners, you can't post anymore.

He's the man.

May I suggest something?

I have not been here for a couple days, so I might have missed it, but maybe there should be a 48 hour notice that things are going to change here. This might keep the complainers from complaining, no? By the way, I want to thank Jon for his hard work.

dont suggest anything all

dont suggest anything all mighty Michael will bite your head off. Lets all be quiet and let this post die and nystroms panties to get unbundled.

Actually, I appreciate suggestions

What I can't stand are demands from entitled dumbasses like you.

He's the man.

I didnt demand anything from

I didnt demand anything from you. I asked other dp members if they could help me make my frontpage better dickhead

I understand

Michael has a lot to deal with, and from what I understand, he is trying to have a nice vacation. Michael has had to tell me how it is before, and I appreciate it. Michael has given me a forum that no one else has, to create post or to spread others. I am very greatful to Michael and all the mods. So yes, he snapped at you, but he is allowed to.

i agree michael can do what

i agree michael can do what he wants(including being an asshole out of nowhere) but i never need to be "put in my place" if i didnt damage or hurt anybody or anything. I didnt do anything wrong, i wasnt rude, i wasnt cursing, i was stating the tiniest simple fact, much like when mcdonalds changes their fry recipe i go "ahh darn i liked the old fries better" I did nothing wrong and nystrom gets on here calls me unintelligent and an idiot pretty much. I have no respect for people like that sorry. Nystrom doesnt need my daily views anyways he gets like 90,000 a day so i guess ill go somewhere else.

Ha ha ha

"An asshole out of nowhere."

You're a real card, Nick.

You don't deserve to be able to post here.

He's the man.

since your online explain to

since your online explain to me y my post is bad. Its 4 sentences long, one asking how to fix my page, one saying the other way was better and two saying nothing really, but now im some kind of dailypaul enemy?

All i said was i enjoyed the

All i said was i enjoyed the front page the way it was. I didnt make a big deal i didnt bump my own post...nothing crazy. I logged on in a matter of 7 hours it said my page was messed up and to contact an administrator. I made a simple post about how i liked the old way better and other people simply posted saying they did too. If you want to try and belittle me for sharing a harmless opinion go ahead then michael. Sensitivity?! understanding?! wtf are you talking about? Did i make you cry because i said i liked the old way better? Please explain why my post made me such an asshole? I dont understand i didnt talk bad about anybody i didnt hurt nothing. But you get on here and try and blow my day apart by calling me names and insulting my intelligence by poking fun at my grammer. You my friend Mr. Nystrom can kindly go fuck yourself

I'll throw this quote out there

"I may disagree with what you say but I'll defend to the death your right to say it".

you are fencing well with

you are fencing well with your words, change your approach on nystrom, add something else, it will knock him off balance


Michael Nystrom's picture

I will too

Just not here on the Daily Paul.

I'll defend your right not to have the government come and kill you for saying it, or put you in jail for it. I'll stand against the government killing you with a drone, or search your house without a warrant.

But I will also ban anyone from the Daily Paul for being a dumbass and making stupid, irrelevant, meanspirited, false and derogatory posts. You have the right to do any of that you want. But I also have the right to run my site the way I want to.

Be real, kid.

Where's your blog so I can come on there and talk sh!t and complain if you want to take it down. I'd like to come over there and teach you a lesson in realtime.

He's the man.

Thanks Mike Nystrom

You just made my day...made me chuckle, and you did something that I've been waiting forever for you to do....

You're kickin' butt and takin' names....and it's been long overdue.

Have a wonderful vacation Mike!

The faithful friends here at the DP love ya, and always will.

If you meet the Buddha on the road, or while on vacation?
....Kick his butt!
Be well Mike and God Bless.

Doesnt apply here.

You don't have the right to enter someones home say whatever offensive thing you like and expect to be welcome or permitted to stay there. Seriously, manners and common sense people.

Would you walk into someones house and scream "WHAT THE HECK! Why is your refrigerator organized like this? It's all messed up! How am I supposed to make a sandwich!?" or "Hi thanks for welcoming me in, I appreciate it, I'm having trouble with the refrigerator could you help me out? Thanks!"

front page

It worked pretty good for me! I just hit the bar, and it gave me the default age that looks pretty normal!

I'm Sure

I'm sure you have the option of setting it to the way you want if not too bad hated that stupid top 10 shit too much stupid post

lol, i complained when the

lol, i complained when the top ten thing got put on but after awhile i liked it and now im used to it. and want it back

I disagree, most of the top ten posts that are stupid dont last

and if they do, it is for good reason... now we are all confused on how we are prioritizing issues.

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.



With all due respect, I will no longer be a voting prostitute for Constitution rejecting harlots.

I could be wrong but

I think this is how Michael N leaves it when he is going to be out of town.

I hate this, if they will figure out a way to have it like this and have the option to see the top posts in the past hour 10 minutes or whatever I will be all good.

You just got PAULED!

They kind of do.
