For an influx of knucklehead trolls and jacka$$ commentary from you know who when the KCStar BB goes down for the final count.

Uggghhh.... at least here, there are a handful of 'big brothers' that can clean up the shiznit before it gets outta hand.

I just hope the site is supported well and can handle the load.

It's been relatively peaceful and enjoyable over here, I hope it doesn't change b/c the Star had sunk to such low depths I would hate to see it happen here.

I totally agree but... what the hell happened to the other site. Are theyt closing the BB at the star now? I don't want those drunk idiots over here.

I noticed that also on TOBB. The moderators better activate the Troll Filter the night of 30 April, or we'll witness an influx of trolls, Lamb fans, and Ernzens here on May Day (OK, I would allow Ernzen in just to watch the massacre).
It'll be war on the Planet. Anyone else willing to donate some combat pay to the moderators?

I just checked out the pigskinpark... damn, that site is slower than he!! ...

I think I'll just park my arse here and hang with the other outsiders, JQ and Joe. I'm not sure I can sign up for too many KC sites... makes me feel dirty.

You could always invite them over to a Bronco board.

It might be good to get some new blood over here, I just hope the less courteous posters fail to find their way over.
BTW, where do you change the "regular" status located above your avatar? I finally figured the avatar thing out, and noticed that some of you other people are more than merely regular. I want to play too.
Also, what is the vB command to change type size and color?

Please help an old enfeebled man. :D

OK, one down, I found the "Regular" place. Duh! I must be blind sometimes.

Any body know how to change text size and color?

If the Star site goes down (no big loss IMO) then we all need to make a pact to not feed the trolls. I have a cool Troll pic that we can just post as the only response—just copy and paste the "IMG" line. Maybe then they will get the point. Anyone on here enough during the day (since big-brother watches me from 7:30-4:00) that would want to be designated troll hunter?

Here's the pic:

I know it's from another site, but it's kinda cool. They have one that says "F*ck Off Troll" but I haven't found it yet. Once I do, I'll post it.

Is the Star BBS REALLY going to be taken down or is it just normal outages that they are having?

If it does go down and we get an influx of new people... it will be the best time for me. IŽm going to be back in Texas from May 4 - May 23 ... so my response times wonŽt be as darned slow as it has been lately (sorry ... IŽll keep blaming Spain!!!) ... but during those three weeks I plan to bust my rump getting the BBS as stable and fast as I can.

--Kyle

P.S. Anyone in North Texas during May? IŽll be around for a drink.

P.P.S. I also think JOhn would make a great moderator... IŽll wait and see what happens when (if) the Star goes down for good.

Kyle - the Star is changing BB format. It might be down for a bit - so I would expect an influx of users ('til they get their censorship board, errr, bulletin board back up) ;)

I would like to apply for the position of daytime TROLL POLICE! I would need a clear definition of what "crossing the line" is though.

Sincerely,

I would be more than happy to volunteer my time to keep Da Planet's forums running fluidly without distractions. I usually visit everyday in the morning and afternoon.


Happy to help . . . even if its just by using the "report to moderator" link . . . which I've never done before.


call the Planet now!. . . troll free . . . 1-800-STAR-SUX

DenverChief,

The graphic underneath the username is known as an avatar, you can establish that using the "edit options" function in your "profile" page.

The graphic in the signatures (at the bottom of the posts) can be established by typing the http link of the graphic file name and bookending the link with "" &""

example using parenthesis in place of brackets

(img)http://www.cuddinfish.homestead.com/files/bob.jpg(/img)

if I used brackets instead of parentheses you would see Spongebob instead of the link.

I think the BB faq also covers
