My new thread illustrating a

My new thread illustrating a bizarre Redditors obsession against the DailyPaul was automatically killed. Can it be resurrected? Thanks.

I couldn't find it. Profile is checked ok to contact.

Dates and times

I wish that active forum topics had a date and time stamp. It is really irritating to open a post that is from months ago. I come here to see current events and opinions of others on those events.

Formerly rprevolutionist

could you have posts with more than X number of down votes

these posts really drag the site down and they're usually just trolls arguing with themselves To bump their troll bait.

Or else they are people fanatically obsessed with their own point of view. Either way they know where to find the down voted post without it being on the top of recent Incessantly.

Contact function has not been functioning

I have sent multiple pms, and either people dont like me, or arnt getting them. Could you guys take a look.


Please please please!!

How difficult would it be to add a feature to be able to download all my DP posts in some type of usable format?

You da MAN (lol). I was just hoping to make sure I caught your attention by posting here (slight violation of the rules)... But please, check out:


And provide your commentary if you have time. Whatever happens, this is an important moment for us all and so I wanted to point out this thread in particular.

Edit: Addition to whatever offer on auction amount, I personally would cover the legal work as well, you retain anything directly from existing fundraising efforts, as well as whatever role you chose, and allow for 3 months to transition admin/coding teams.... If I was the winner... ;) Just saying.

It would be the free market way to step away.... (No guilt trip intended, lol).

Ok thanks wolfe

I will look at it when I get a chance.

Jon has left little easter eggs all over this site

It is charming to run into them.

I believe this one is my favorite, not to mention that it is useful and elegantly designed.

2 comments to billrow didn't show the links,I can see the gaps

The gaps in between my words,was where the links were
And now,this comment,has most of it missing.
There was 2 more paragraphs to it,but they are gone

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Joη's picture

The first two have missing

The first two have missing Amazon links. Do you have an adblocker installed in your browser? Those are now blocking Amazon links. Either turn that off or whitelist Amazon links. Those links are there.

This third one, take a look at what was put in it, press edit:

You have this in there:

one of you<I

Which makes the content parser think you're starting an <HTML> tag. But since you never close it, it deems it broken, and removes it. So remove that <.

Premium Subscription - please kill the ads. :)

Hi Michael,

I resumed my premium subscription yesterday but I'm still seeing ads today. Could you please add me to your (way too long) to-do list? I paid via PayPay. It's a new email address, but I did put a note in along with the payment.

Yeah, that's broken. Sorry about that.

I upgraded your account manually. Is it fixed now?

Yes, thanks. :)

I wish I could give more.

Why do I see a post

in the active forum topics dated today when I know I saw it yesterday? And the replies are dated yesterday. My topic has more upvotes and was generated today but does not appear. And now move another post of mine out of the DP original section. CLASSY!

Sometimes in the morning, I go through and look at some of the posts that were put up in the wee hours, and never got a chance to be seen, and I just bring the date to the current time for visibility.

I don't know exactly what post you're talking about, but that's probably what happened.

And I don't know exactly which post of yours your taking about, but that's the reason.

The Daily Paul could be better organized, I agree. It's kind of like a big salad. From time to time I'll spruce up the leaves like that.

See? Well, there ya go.

PAF's friend can't log onto DP with her password, either! Now, just imagine how many noobs (who don't even know any of us personally to let us know they cannot log on) are being left out in the cold.

Have him or her email me

As much as I love the Daily Paul, this is not how I want to be spending my life, no offense to you, PAF, or his or her friend's as the case may be.

But it is my responsibility for now, so I will discharge that responsibility.

Whenever I see you Nonna, I think of Strega Nona.

Michael, a few things.

Garan made a great suggestion in the post below.

I have a friend who just signed up, is not computer savvy and asked if I could relay the message. Her account password is not working. Gloria's user id on the DP is PAGLO. Can you assist Gloria?

Michael, do you have a large Daily Paul poster that I can display at our event? If you do, let me know how much, shipping, etc. This is to help advertise Daily Paul.

PAF, you're a dear. I'll do this tomorrow

I don't have a sign or anything, but I appreciate it. It is all good. Don't worry about it.

It would be nice to have a search for users/friends.

I was looking for user "Freedom and Compromise" (someone I chatted with).

Coming to a fresh load of DP, I was at a loss.
Tried DP search, google search, the DP faq.

Found someone on chat who was able to find a post with the user, yet they had to do it manually.

So, I am making this feature request.

Man, I wish I had a feature request department!

(Updated) Jon-Tech Issues / Michael-Protocol Issue

Hi Jon,

1. Been having loading/time-out issues for a week. They are sporadic, but at times very bad. May cause double-posts.

2. All of a sudden half the 'Topics' and 'Comments' on right side of "Most Viewed Posts" page, http://www.dailypaul.com/, are blue...not in a row but throughout. What does 'blue' mean?

3. Page alignment is off. Hmmm, how to explain.
Ex: click a comment permalink and it doesn't line up with comment
Ex: click a post link and page may not be populated at top but various places downward
Ex: after posting a comment, page doesn't go to that comment 50% of time
Ex: click comment replies in profile and no longer goes to that comment

3b. clicking newbie links in their profile goes directly to error page, re-directs and times out, or re-directs to error page

Mozilla Firefox


[EDIT: THE MOST pages' 'links' don't change color after clicking like throughout rest of website even tho' links/posts previously clicked/viewed elsewhere. Can you please change viewed links color there, as well? Thanks.]


Hi Michael,

You are very insightful and do a wonderful job.
Might you consider a new protocol where down-votes are limited? Say, maybe to '-5'? It is not only very scary and crushing to newbies and females, but to the fellas who have been here for years, too. Is -7 to -27 or more really necessary? I assure you they get it. I think the gladiator-like killings affect a lot of the readers as well as the posters. I'm all for more love, joy, peace, and serenity. Anything you can do would be appreciated. Thank you.

[Edit: Lots of newbies are upset they are being massacred with down-votes on their first posts. Can you change their user id color and ask oldies to show more compassion? Just idea. Thanks.]
