when it was tacked to the top of general discussion? you killed another perfectly good thread by filing it away in a dark corner where no one goes! check you're email, i'm sending the same message via.


EMDII edit:

Yes Ted WHY???

January 28, 2002, 08:01
There were more posts yesterday in the G/BiY thread then here in S/TS. Must still be active?

Here goes:


a- I topped it originally, IIRC. Could be wrong: I top/move quite a bit.

b- it had the bulk of it's traffic on the 25th and had already slowed down. It has had additional traffic since then, and remains topped in G/BiY.

c- I think it's viable still. Those who want can get to it from GD, I'll make sure and post the link.

d- when a thread moves, UBB automatically locks the originating topic. Stops divergent threads.

I'll monitor it. There's been no lack of traffic since the move. Keep it pumpeed if we have additional questions. Otherwise: we await developments?

rrotz and sparky comprise 12 of the 50 responses to date. There seems to be sufficient interest to keep it 'live' in G/Biy, where it remains topped. meeper (the originator) remains active after the move, and has 5 threads.

There are 7 active posts by others since the move.

The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated-

Ted, Thanks just happy to have a place like Fal Files to post. Put it any where you like.

the tagline is here and on the original thread. If you need a different 'state-of-mind', let me know! I think it's working, but I have NO intention of burying it.

Can you hear the sound of teeth grinding in the background?
