Request to the WEB GUYS at DP

To any of the web guys for DP: Please fix the character encoding on your site. The table above shows error characters instead of the checkmarks. Your server is delivering headers that are setting the character encoding as "iso-8859-1", but you set the charset to utf-8 in the html head. This is a big no no that I've just debugged for you. If you match the encoding on the server, database, and site, people won't see the error characters everywhere.

I AM is all that is. Everything else is malleable.


It says I have been a registered user for 22 weeks, but I been reading this site, quoting this site to friends and family for a long time, and its understandable you want to rasie cash, but didnt we just go through a huge donation deal as well leading up to RP saying he would not do the primaries anymore. I think you need to roll back to the principals that you had when this site was created, and stay with that, or probably more than you know, including myself, will be looking for other sources. Dont get me wrong I love this place, but, I agree with many that thinks the site is losing focus, even though it offers free regardless, it just makes me feel like corporate Amerika is digging my pockets when we do give and help freely even though we are all in the pooper with the cash crisis and job crisis. I feel cheated if this is how it goes. I just don't think I will like it anymore. respect


For Liberty!!!

Yo Nystrom or Mods

I'm a premium subscriber, but have not any subscriber features, let alone premium subscriber features. Can someone check that out for me, please?

There are no ads.
I see it's posting my avatar in my comments.
My friends list has vanished and I can't find it.

how about now?

the full friends list was moved to its own page at the (all) link in the heading of the mini friends list, under your profile pic at your account.

The custom front page is being redone to store choices upon sign out.

The rest of the benefits should be explained in the link at the bottom of the account or clear otherwise.

all good

Yes, everything seems to be working now. Thanks

So we would be paying $5 a month,

just to put our picture up and not see ads?

user blocking?

Someone explain that one to me please.

hide users from comments and sidebar content?

Yes, please BUY this wonderful libertarian BOOK! We all must know the History of Freedom! Buy it today!

"The System of Liberty: Themes in the History of Classical Liberalism" ...by author George Smith --
Buy it Here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/05211820

Really? you know you will lose supporters right?

there are more and more free websites like this for Ron Paul... can you advertiser's pay for that? just like every other site on the internet?

I'm not New.

I'm not new.
I'm not a Troll.

And this site is getting WORSE, not BETTER. So trying to charge for it is like trying to sell tickets for the Titanic - when the leaks are clear to see.

This is becoming an ACTIVIST site full of complaints, worries, and "watch-outs" -- it has strayed far from DELIVERING THE MESSAGE OF FREEDOM, Free Markets, and All that Ron Paul has stood for.

People should come here and feel INSPIRED, not like an Alex Jones show where the few at the top are holding down the many at the bottom - that's not how life works. And that's why I'm writing a book about it.

Ron Paul is a leader.

He sets the example.
Do you think he is afraid?
Do you think he feels "held down"?

He's always smiling.
He's light hearted.
He's "good" no matter what happens.

The site has strayed from the message.
Sorry - but a new generation is popping up - full of hope, enthusiasm, and hopefully - they won't learn to feel "oppressed" from their parents and they will inherit the Earth.

I voted you up.

Because I think you made a few good points. But the site now functions much better than it did although the quality of the topics posted have been going down and are usually the sky is falling in type posts.

Not sure how to solve that point but the site is getting better and I hope Nystrom makes a good profit out of spreading the word on freedom. What could be more libertarian than that?

Lord Acton, Lord Chief Justice of England, 1875 - "The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the People v. The Banks."

Why can't I vote this up?


Why no live site for anon?

I understand everything except the delayed site for anonymous users. What's the point of doing that? I have my account, but I only sign in if I want to comment. Aren't the majority of users anonymous? Aren't you in affect, making your site worse for the majority of people using the site?

I think it's genius.

You don't have to pay to be a member, and the more members this site gets, the bigger it gets. You then get more people coming back, interacting with the site, not just being passive. This is what will make it grow- the more people it can bring back.

However, please change the top banner! This website deserves better then that!!

Don't sensor me bro.
Don't sensor the internet.
Don't sensor free speech.
Don't sensor the movement.
Don't sensor the good just because of the bad or evil.
Don't sensor the advertisers from sending their messages.
Don't try to capitalize off of the people trying to save this country.


Surely this will be the death of the Daily Paul.

You might as well change the name while your at it. Your as good as dead.

How are you being sensored?

I think you need to re-read the changes. They sound sensible to me.

Newbie or troll?

decisions, decisions....
you think this is a news site? that is interesting all by itself!
the "death of the DP"
if you are a person who feels threatened easily.... this is NOT the place for you.

Just a question about the account page

First I want to apologize ahead of time. I have searched a bit myself and couldn't find a thread to answer the question myself.

I just wanted to find out. What does the nodes mean for the nodes : comments portion?

Test bump.

He's the man.

Good Work.

Without this site the Liberty movement would be put back years.

I have no doubt you will get your good karma back in spades for your efforts.

P.S. Thanks for writing this article, I now give more to charity due to the wisdom in its message.


All this spreading of knowledge has to be a good thing.
