Not really sure if they are activating people anymore? Made my 10 posts about 2 weeks ago, and I'm still not able to post on the regular forum :?:

I will do it. Hang on a couple of days, though...

Thank you. It wouldn't be such a big deal. But I really am a Zappa fan, and have some serious questions to ask. I work with one guy who knows of Frank Zappa, but the only album he has ever heard is Sheik Yerbouti. It's sort of hard to carry on a serious conversation about Zappa when the other person's point of interest is limited to Bobby Brown Goes Down and Jewish Princess.

Well, Philostopher, you could at least push the envelope a little further and discuss the xenochrony of Rubber Shirt or the stellar solos of Rat Tomango and Yo Mama!

Thanks for the advice, either the pm I sent to 'Admin' or to Mikey must've worked... I'm cleared on the regular board...

The word xenochrony itself would probably blow this guy's mind, and he certainly doesn't have any appreciation of Zappa's guitar skills.

:mrgreen:


*Edit*
Thanks for the help getting on the forum Mikey and Mr_Green_Genes!

Hopefully I can get some help! My next post will be 10! The first post I attempted (after the prerequisite activation post) was in the What's Zappaning? forum. It has yet to show up. Does anyone know if it will show up once I hit 10 and get my certified pin of full membership? I imagine it will be a pumpkin or poodle. Maybe Evelyn with a pensive face considering the implications of pedal-depressed panchromatic resonances

I have to concur with Deuce's 2/10 rating for the initial post sequence! As a highly qualified judge of these things, I feel like some more dada would have done quite nicely. Here's 10; hope my posts come through

How long does it typically take for activation? It looks like Philostopher's happened fairly quickly. More transparency! Actually, I'm sure the moderators/admins do a fantastic job. Who are the brain police for this site by the way? I'm legitimately interested. How are they elected? Or have they been here since time immemorial? The answers to this may help the project I'm working on for class (see post that is currently non-existent but hopefully will show up under What's Zappaning? titled Zappa Project, or something like that). Man, I hope I don't have to retype that whole thing. I'm only being such a needy nuisance because of deadlines and things. Hopefully this all works. Thanks

Alright, I am going to school and work and will put this out of my mind for the moment. And when I come back 12 hours later, the magical fairies will have sprinkled their dust on the whole shebang and my initial post (the only one nearing any significance) will appear and further, several people will have volunteered and I will write this paper about Zappa and the community at the Zappa message board and life will work out so beautifully.

yea, they do a fantastic job



forum moderators: none
forum admin: mikey, webmaster of the entire zappa.com

pretty sure mikey's not a full-time employee, he's also credited on some recent zappa cd's ... to limit mikey's involvement with the forum to almost nil, while keeping spammers away; the zappa forum registration/initiation process is quite rigorous, but requires minimum admin oversight ... once your in, yer in

unlike almost every other [public or private] forum on the internet, the zappa forum has zero moderators to get in your face; anything goes here, it's zappa-inspired free-speech at it's internet best ... there's one subject that might attracts attention from the admin, and even then it's hit or miss ['cause it just might be what they all need]; out of 18,434 members, less than 10 banned over the years

the just passin thru' thread was quietly deleted this week, maybe a warning sent, maybe not


that's right, you heard right, the secret word for tonite is unmoderator
