this is a section arn set up for people like me and alphatech who were posting on macrumors a lot and maybe got tired of either newbies and/or trolls who came to wreck our day and start flame wars

we both quit as well as possibly john123, kela, and others who i don't think i have seen for months...as well as many original macrumors folks

so arn convinced at least me to come back with this new section

dan,
or jhatfield
or jefhatfield
or juliana hatfield (names i am known as on the net)

Any ground rules?

No flaming ...
No trolling ...
No name calling ...

etc.

So I take it that it is you registered as that on TheTechPub. Nice to see you back jef.

I'm glad I helped someone come back to the forums. I even called you "jefhatfield" for once. Welcome back.

I'll remove that little poetry from my sig immediately, now that you are back.


Now, you mention newbies coming to start flamewars and that's the reason you guys left, apparently. What will this thread cover?

P.S.: john123 was roaming the boards a few days after MWNY.

Will this become some sort of exclusive forum that newbies can't enter?

And why are you posting as a guest if you don't mind me asking. You still show up in the member list so your account is waiting :confused:

I don't think I count as Old school, but I'll post here anywayz.:D
Nice to see you back jef,julie,dan whatever.:p
I wonder if this thread will be closed to those not registered before a certain date in the future. :confused:

that's my bad... when I setup the forum, I forgot to limit it to registered users. So, jef wasn't logged in and just typed his name in as an unregistered post.

it's fixed now.

the forum will remain open for registered users... I will probably limit it from non-logged in people.

Oh, I don't need a special forum for that. :p

Wow, this is a good idea Arn! You could limit it from date of registration. That would be neat. Instead of postcount or demi-God.

still great idea.

People with a strong New England accent, which I can easily adopt to. :D

Don't forget about Mini-B2TM! :p

And B2TM Little Bro :p

All this talk of limiting access based on registration date raises the question, how old do you have to be to be old skool?

Mr. Anderson
Sep 4, 2002, 08:37 PM
I don't think there are restrictions, and you would probably be old school any way - I might not or be right on the line, if one existed.

Yea, I be down wit the old skool up in hea ;)

Anyway, I don't think vBulletin would support access based on registration date. If it can't support more then one private forum then I dobut if it could support rules like post count and registration date.

Glad to see you back on, jef'...now the question is: Are you going to be posting a poll anytime soon?;) :D

Yes, I think it is fitting that you should post the first poll in the Old Skool forum. You know you want to.

If I were you guys, i wouldnt limit it to "old school" people, lest another overthrowing of tyranny (dvpg or whatever?)

I don't think that would happen. We've all learned our lesson. Besides being Old School isn't something you can be made to do, you just are.

dignan is not old skool. heck, he shouldn't even be out of the short films thread.



seriously though, are there restrictions? not to be a pessimist, but what's to keep the trolls/flamers out of this forum?

hey, like edvniow, i'm not old skool, so I really shouldn't be posting here.

Now that I am posting, welcome back jefhatfield :)

I guess ya'll won't want me posting here again...I guess I won't enter this forum again then.

I'll let ya'll reminence in the old times:p

btw, Durandal7, you have the same avatar as asurance, right?

yeah i saw his post at the techpub forums...

he seems to have a very ambitious project going on so its understandable.

but then again, this is the niche for all the senior members of macrumors...

you never know... :)

Just came back to let people know that I have updated the rest of my site (www.thetechpub.com). There are still some blank sections, and there is not all that much on it, but that will change as time progresses. It's more difficult to find content when you are not digging up rumors. ;)

Now, back to content grabbing... :eek:

Two things, one, I don't have a fax, and two, I didn't activate that part of signing up...

If you have any questions, email me at akira@thetechpub.com....
