    Re: Ghost town

    I'd like to say one thing, thanks for having me on-board. With the resent wave of refugees unlike myself that were locked-out from their "home site", I came over here after being blessed with the ability of talking to a ghost town like Auschwitz.

    It appears the doors have been unlocked for the multitudes of members that have endured endless chaotic bums rush situations and halls of so called "order" free of monitors with incommunicado the only answer from that administration. The resulting drama reminds me of another kind of situation, one we all know to well.

    Anyway, the atmosphere here is certainly more conducive to a higher plane of thinking, like a library, when many gather and noise is not acceptable.

    I imagine many of the refugees that landed here will return to the "mother" ship!

    Once bitten and man using logic will never be bitten again!

    The rule about inter-site fighting, name calling, and an overall mental romper-room atmosphere is something I do not see here. Features don't just magically vanish in tune with the wizard of Oz behind the emerald curtain. (a few of us saw what's behind the curtain).

    Jager, Jagger, or whatever your username is, thanks for having some good insight! It's not a cop on every corner, but we need good cops on bad corners, and that's what I see here! Thank you, it's nice to enjoy some peace!

    You'll find as did I, many men with PTSD will find each other and help one another better here than a site with to many malfunctions, creating a dysfunctional atmosphere.

    Therefore I suspect the intellectual inferior will bore easy and seek excitement, drama, and dancing monkey controls over their lives just as it was before they found MGTOW and had another Puppet-master controlling their lives by taming them with a shit-vortex keeping them spinning in circles.

    I walk a straight line, I shoot from the hip, I hit between the eyes, I walk away, I never go back. (covert operations not withstanding).

    Spot on Mgɹǝʍoʇ and having this occur will not be a bad thing. As discussed, each of us were drawn to join a MGTOW themed social media site and further decided to stop lurking and become an active member. While this decision was important and validated a personal need, it did not change our personality nor our communication style.

    Hopefully members will seek the site and interaction level that is most comfortable and provides them the best opportunities to go their own way.

    No one was forced to join the site and no one should feel forced to stay.

    Ha, I know one of the micro-brews owners. As long as we visit his brewery, drink his brew and say good things about it, it's all good! If you slip you'll be drinking $1.50 per can beer really fast.

    Bet that the term "free" applies to every aspect of everything served as well!

    Re: Ghost town

    Now that the all-wise and benevolent Keymaster has apparently found a solution to the login problem, it may be that some of our new members will choose to return to their former island. Certainly, it has better graphics and more features than GYOW. Some of the members over there have likened this place to a cheap apartment from the 90ís, or to a Motel 6.

    However, for me, content has always been more important than form or presentation. What good are the best wrappings if they contain only an idea or sentiment vapid and devoid of originality? So let them remain or go as they desire. If there is true affinity of thought and feeling, then kindred spirits will always be drawn together.

    After logging in, I always click on "Forum" then look at the "Latest Posts" which lists the latest 20 posts or so, then I select to read the ones in that list that seem of interest. I may comment in them, I may not. Commenting is conversing. For years, upon logging in, I would immediately be made aware if the Notifications tab in the upper right corner of my screen showed up in reverse video (in a black box) showing a short pulldown menu of "Likes Received" and/or "Reputations Received" since the time of my last log-in. I use those Notifications to remind myself which threads I had visited and had posted, to see if anyone replied to my comments. Again, conversing. To do this, I would click on the Likes in the pulldown menu and be taken to the same screen had I clicked on "My Profile" followed by clicking on the "Likes" tab there. There, each new Like was listed (even older ones, too), showing who did the Liking and which thread it was. This allowed me to see where people were conversing with me. It is important to note that if I did not log into the site for a long time, the upper right Notifications pulldown would still be there with its new notifications, waiting for me, for, oh I'd say, weeks or more. I could take a short break from the site and later come back to the site and the new Notifications would still be there in the little pulldown menu. A great system for me to stay engaged.

    Sometime within the last year, something changed. The Notifications no longer waited around. They now disappear (aged out?) in a very short time from the Profile/Likes tab. Without them, and as I am not one to memorize the titles of threads in which I have posted, to find anyone's conversation with me I am left to scan the "Latest Posts" all over again, hoping I recognize a thread title. This is not fun, looking aimlessly for anyone's conversation with me. For instance, my above Post #29 was made August 4th and I did not log back into the site until August 9, by then the Notifications pulldown menu indicated I had 7 Likes but when I click on this menu, the screen for MyProfile/Likes tab shows no Likes, nada, zippo, so I can't tell who and what thread it was. All 7 aged out in 5 days or less. They used to stick around for a lot longer than that.

    When this problem first started, I messaged the webmaster here but, IIRC, I got a reply saying that it would have to be referred to the designers of the software program that formats this site. In other words, it ain't gonna get fixed. And it still has not been fixed. I cannot log in every day or every two days just to stay ahead of this problem.

    The only reason I found THIS thread to see that Natural Born MGTOW had responded to me in Post #30 is by expanding the Forum "Latest Posts" list from 20 to 100, then scanned it and found "Ghosts" in the list about 80 posts down, took a guess that that was a thread in which I had posted, and voila here I am. I'm not going to do that each time I come here, to guess and poke around at which threads in which I had participated. There may be members who have asked me a question in a thread and I am unaware how to find this out.

    Now, you might wonder, Unboxxed why don't you just visit your own MyProfile and click on "My Activity" to see a list of topics where you had posted, and go from there?

    Well, that is broken, too. When I click on MyActivity, I get the posting activity of some other member of this forum, listed under my own username of Unboxxed! Tonight, for instance, under my username I see all posts for Natural Born MGTOW. Threads in which I had never posted. It's all his stuff under my username. Previously, it was some other user's stuff.

    So, I don't try hard around here anymore. This site is broken in ways that discourage my participation. Surely I am not the only person who has noticed these things.
    I will bring this to Jagr's attention, thanks for the heads up.

    The other has better graphics? Possibly. However I do not say it has more features. I find more or less the same feature if not more. In fact I still haven't grasp most features, and that is usually a sign of abundance of them.

    As for the "Motel 6"... That is an unfortunate consequence of design vs performance. There is a simplicity of looks in the other site and a more complex design here. Kind of windows/linux thing, and I am a linux man.

    I have taken my time to learn about the vBulletin software and appears to be a very established and proven software. I am an engineer working in a high-reliability area, so I am professionally inclined to what is more stable than what looks better.

    It's the selling the steak vs. selling the sizzle, substance vs. style, though provoking content vs. graphics. I think my fellow new arrivals will stay here. It's been quite interesting seeing them reveal more intellectual deeper sides to themselves than were shown on the other site. I'm sure other new arrivals from the old site have noticed this too. Men can be happy with a campfire, some food to cook, some drinks and good conversation.
    There are advantages to this site not having fancy graphics or other glitter. (It might be cheaper to keep up as well, hat's off to Jaggr for doing this)
