Mikey, could you please consider to delete those two announcement threads now that there is a decision about the forum refreshment? That way at least SOME of this Isaac-bullshit goes to the can.

Thanx in advance,
Thinman

How am I spamming you? I sent you a polite, personal message explaining the situation. Why would you get pissed off at me?

Because any single line from you is a waste of space and time.

I think the best forum refreshment would be to ban Isaac.

Mikey,
He has done nothing but litter up the forum with spam and has posted nothing of value.
1- He threatens people by sending them harrassing PMs.
2-His idea of a post is either: :roll: or :shock: or 8) or BUMP for the past year.
3- He has started a post to ban me and no one responded except himself.
4- He has posted upward of 300 posts in a 2 day period burying threads of good topics from people I have come to know and respect here over the past year.
5- He was even banned from another Zappa Forum for bothering the Administrator there.
6- He can't follow simple directions by staying on topic in threads.
7- He is a compulsive liar.

When does it all end?

All The Best!
G.C.
Jon Valin

You've started or bumped legitimate harassment threads. I've sent no PMs that could be considered harassment. Politely asking others not to feed your petty bullshit is not harassment.

I have more content in my posts than you ever had.

It was a parody of your dumbass thread, you dumb ass.

I have never tried to "bury" any thread. You, on the other hand, HAVE buried good threads by bumping your petty bullshit.

I haven't bothered anyone.

You constantly barge into my threads, jumping up and down, throwing poo like a rabid little monkey.

I should check out THIS part of the forum more often...

Ignore function is great... wish it wasn't necessary... Other options:

Swift delete of spammers (and that Baer-idiot that now goes by the name of Phrizzle). I found on my forum that round-the-clock administration is the only way you can get the mess cleaned, if it's possible I'd love to see it.

More smileys. Also see the We Need New Pumpkins thread. Bring back the Kiss smiley! Image

A background that doesn't have a puke colour. "Silver/Blue" is a highly unfitting name. Would be great if we can get something that will always look good with your picture.

Option to "turn off images".

Option to add attachments.

A better search engine, so we can, say, search for posts you made in a certain thread.

I think Baer's new account has been deleted, actually.

Forbid "signature" photos or at least over-sized ones. It's painful on the eye and distracting when scrolling.

Over-sized ones, maybe. But do you really want to lose the gossling? Besides I appreciate if you can see where something ends.

Your signature is relatively small, so it shouldn't be a problem.

I think its clear that the consensus is that we keep the current forum the way it is.

We can always add new sections later on, or condense some of the old threads into more clearly defined sections.

Thanks so much for the feedback.

Forgive if this has already been suggested but you could create a new area called ARCHIVE and place all the old posts in there and lock it. There is a wealth of information in amongst all the dribble that should be preserved for those who can be bothered to search through it.

I'd like to see the following structure:

Announcements (only admins can post)
Off topic
Zappa albums
Zappa Tours
ZPZ
Alumni
What' Zappaning
Musicians Talk
Zappa General

I'm so happy, I feel like dancing! I would vote for saving the forum, as long as that is what most people want. Sweeping it clean would be okay too, but I agree that I like to look back at some threads when I can find them! Here's to better times!

Did you read the poll?

The question is "Should we start with a blank slate and a fresh new forum?" The options are "Yes! A Fresh new forum but retaining all users and post counts!", "No! Let's keep the current forum contents and posts" and "Meh! I don't give a shit either way."

Why would you then want to delete it all? All your posts that made you such a respected member of the Forum? :D
