Michael and Mods

A problem has arisen. I was hoping you had some ideas on what to do.

DPers old and new, on the ark and otherwise, RP supporters who donated/voted and otherwise have become very upset and lost. Certain topics have been brought up here that are unfamiliar to them. They couldn't find the help and information here they needed so searched online elsewhere. What they found was derogatory of the DP and RP or similarly derogatory of the subject matter. They don't know what to believe. They are dropping away from here and similar alternative media to return to whence they came (including MSM), to nothing, or to the other side(s) willing to teach and explain their positions.

This seems counter-productive to ~8yrs of what was trying to be accomplished. Have you any suggestions? Thank you.

Why was my post about Stephen Ivens unpublished :(

I didn't copy the entire article or use any curse words.... I know its old news but nobody made a post about him yet on here and I think it's well worth a discussion! :( :(

no it's not, see the mod comment atop the post.

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

Oh, ok

It wasn't directly from them though, they sourced it from whatdoesitmean.com

Are they a disinfo site too?

I still think his story is worthy of a discussion even if the article about the false flag warning is a load of BS..

I see what you mean

Never checked their homepage until now.... I see what you mean..

Religion forum suggestion

There ought to be a religion forum section so that posts about religion, and other faith based discussions, would be gathered in one place.

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom — go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, an

Infected!

My "Book Talk" section is infected too. See comment below.

:-/

Thats some nasty stuff to see on my screen... can anything be done?

Can we flood the comments and posts with NEW booktalk?

We are slow learners, "whith great power comes great responsibillity"

EDIT (can anything be done):

Oh here it is. I found you.

The comment linked below probably best belongs here.

I miss the ads...

I need to fix my membership because I had a CC# change, but whenever this sort of thing happens it get's me to thinking.

I actually like the ads. Not the crappy ones that I remember being at the bottom, brought in by one of the internet marketing firms, but the real ones, that were presumably purchased directly from the DP.

For a subscriber, would you consider adding a checkbox to turn just those types of ads back on?

I know it is a strange request.

DP Changes?

New post font? Looks nice.

New mailing address for donations or MA address still good?

Thanks.

USA 2012?

I could not reply on your reply or to Nonna, but it may be that she just needs to clear her browser cache "History" and reset it. It might not be seeing the new cookies after she clicked the box in her DP settings. IE is bad about this, the new graphics changes won't override the old ones. I have to do this a lot when I make graphics changes on my own sites.

You are welcome to point that out to her if you like and delete this. Thank you.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

I also thought the same thing....

Seems she posts videos, so she may need to clear her cache.

We all need to know her browser to help her, lol.

She may need a step-by-step. Feel free y'all!

Thanks. :)

Other ideas:
low on ram? too many background programs running at start-up?
updates/changes in last 2 years?
why did she suffer so long before speaking up? ;)

Judging by this...

"I'm not at all computer savvy, so trying a different browser is not something I'd be inclined to do".

I'd say she might still be using IE, and unfortunately even if she updated it to the newest version it still has this problem with certain graphics changes and the cache has to be dumped.

Thank you for the reply and I will try to catch her about trying it without tearing up a good thread in doing so, I'm in for a detailed step by step for her. I owe her a good turn anyways :)

Thanks again, have a great morning!

This is an offer I can't refuse!

I will contact you privately, so we don't crap up the thread. Many thanks!

P.S. To reply to a comment in this thread, go to the person's profile and click on comments. You'll see the reply link in the individual comments (unless the mods change that).

Nonna? did you try yet?

Well, typical he hasn't showed up here at my business yet so please try contacting me and maybe we can get it done before he does show. If it didn't work please go turn your contact on for a minute and I will contact you first. or go here and just type a username and enter: http://libertyauthors.com/chatx7/index.php?page=login

Oh man, I have to check my email? lol. Let me know if it doesn't send right from the DP. I have some important stuff to go and take care of this morning (Personal meeting with my County Supervisor) and then I will get ahold of you sometime after.

Talk to you then!

P.S. I just checked to make sure I have the right email in my DP account so it should work!

Email was sent about 3 hours ago.

Sometimes it takes a long while before you get it. Will enable contact shortly.

Edit: I did allow email but, it isn't showing for some reason (and YES I do know how to enable it.) Maybe one of the mods (who do have access to email addresses) can send it to you for me? Just remembered that a few years ago there was a problem on this site and people weren't getting email messages. The mods had to fix it. Could be the problem now.

Is a setting off on my computer? Can't get colorized

comments. Yes, I have gone to My Profile, Edit, and have checked the box and unchecked the box for colorized comments, and yes, I have clicked Save. Nothing works. I don't know all that much about computers. Could I have to adjust a setting on my computer? If so, please tell me how to do it in simple English. Not being sarcastic when I tell you I'm not fluent in computer jargon. Can you help me out?

Maybe

it's a browser issue. What browser are you using? (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc..) Can you try a different browser? Looks like your settings are correct. This is above my paygrade (which is 0..;) but maybe Jon or someone else can diagnose properly.

BTW, in Chrome it says "ogin to reply" when not signed in.

Windows 7

It worked before (about two years ago) but, not now for some reason. I'm not at all computer savvy, so trying a different browser is not something I'd be inclined to do. I just thought maybe a setting isn't right on my computer.

Hope you're doing well, Jefferson!

Colored Comments

Did you get it fixed yet?

JavaScript needs to be enabled. That is also needed to see youtube embeds and play videos. Can you play youtube videos or is it a blank white or black spot?

Windows 7 is your operating system. Your browser might be mozilla firefox, internet explorer, or google chrome?

Look at the very top of your screen. If you left mouse-click the word Help, at the bottom of the pop-up menu it may say About ___ . That is your browser make(r). Left click the About ___. What browser and version no. have you?

These things need to be compatible for the functions to work.

Describe anything you can/see/know or for security, email my user name. ;)

Security Certificate Warning

I got a Security Certificate Warning on the "Should we all take a little lithium?" thread. A link in there maybe? or a new ad in the rotator? Just wanted to give heads up in case others get this too :)

Happened again, I think it might be the "Myrbetriq" ad in the rotator. This add loaded each time it gave me the warning. These were the only two times this particular ad has happened to come up on me.

There might be a connection here. Again just heads up! Thanks.

Why Hello Mountaincat

yeah it's a long one...

However if you scroll all the way down you should still be able to see the leave comment button.

No one has left any comments yet so that might be why you aren't seeing any, but you should have the option to comment still and when ppl leave comments they should show up, you will just have to scroll all the way down to the bottom.

Why hello jrd & mountaincat

Thank you for your help on this fine morning. Tip of the hat to you both.

I can't tell if this is the song I was looking for or not, because my internet connection is slow... I think it might be :)

He's the man.

Regarding post "Do these Videos Change Your Mind?"

I make a conscious effort not to look at gruesome photos because I don't want them in my mind.

By imbedding the videos in his post, "zooamerica" gives the viewer NO CHOICE but to see photos of people being hung. There is no alert or warning that his post contains graphic images of violence!

This post is in bad taste, and I can't believe it hasn't been removed by the moderators.
