The day after many folks are off work and would be posting...but it is dead in here.
Who is off work? Most people had Monday off instead.
A lot of folks took the week.
Some of us work for companies that are closed until the 2nd, R1. And we have the time off with pay.
I'm off until January 2nd. Company 'winter closing' .......with pay!! Yeaaaaaaa .......
Primetime kicks in when webbie takes off and there's nobody to watch over the site. Let's hope he's not gone for the rest of the week.
I'm right here and watching ready to F&F and redtag any NUTS that try to take control here.
I'm working today and bored. Talk, people!
Has the lockdown ended yet?
It was Primetime all Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
What a great xmas gift. More like a big middle finger to the gay community.
FUCK YOU GAY COMMUNITY, love Datalounge.
On Christmas when GIVING is supposed to be the rule.
We're no longer on lockdown.
Maybe you could cough up the lousy $18, R9, or STFU.
[quote]Maybe you could cough up the lousy $18 or STFU.
Maybe some of us who paid the $18 don't want to be stuck with the few people allowed to come here during primetime. Can you imagine having to deal with people like R11 who are too stupid to realize that primetime is a total drag for nearly all who post here.
I was unable to post for nearly a year and all of a sudden I can post again. Weird.
If you don't pay, what appears? I thought it was one big beg box that fills the screen.
If so, do you hit it once a day to see if it's gone? I'd forget.
Prim time for days, again. Ugh.
Still. I paid to post but this place is DEAD without casual posters.
You have a job?
Let's give R16 some eternal rest.
Why the hostility, r17 and r18? You like it when it's primetime around here?
What's with the around the web crap at the bottom of each page. I HATE IT!
R12 is right. The deadness during Primetime is what's keeping me from joining.
It is always primetime these days.
It has been Primetime for over a week now.
What a mess.
I'm tired of primetime always being on.
Just so you know, R25, primetime has been off quite frequently in the last 16 months. You should check back more often.
I find it to be on most of the time nowadays, R27.
[quote]primetime has been off quite frequently in the last 16 months.
Primetime seems to be getting worse. It used to be like a day or two a week, not it's more like 5-6 days of primetime a week.
Only desperate losers with no friends or life pay $18 to post on an internet forum. I would of thought that obvious.
Would have, R31.
How often of you had that thought, R31?
LOL. Loser $18 paying grammar trolls.
It's not PRIMETIME now bitches - get your posts on.
no ones here. its primetime 85% of the time now. enjoy it now, these are the final days of DL!
Buying an annual membership on the DL is like buying an EZPass for the tollbooth.
With a pass, bottlenecks and long lines are NOT your problem.
On DL? Primetime = Schmimetime = Who Cares?
The side bar with the thread watcher keeps jumping around
You know what's the craziest thing about Primetime?
There was this thread started by some bi-polar loonie, that was something like "Okay you stupid fucking homos... " blah blah blah, which was started by some deranged homophobic asshole.
The site immediately went into Primetime after that, and all the gays got locked out. But that psycho was still able to post his shit, because he paid his 18 dollars.
Now you tell me. How fucked up is that. The psychotic homophobe gets to rant and rave on a gay gossip site just because he paid 18 bucks, and the actual gays who aren't members, get locked out.
That's just insane.
R39 LMAO... PrimeTime was also shutdown when some idiot posted a thread along the lines of "WTF happened to DL in the previous week?"... people started bitching about PrimeTime, the thread got deleted and PrimeTime got switched back on.
R40, the most damaging thing about Primetime is the after effect.
When Primetime puts this place on lockdown (which has been 2-3 whole DAYS lately), people stop coming, and this place is DEAD. And even when Primetime is lifted, they don't return.
This is such a bad business model. Longer and more frequent Primetime = less visitors and site traffic. People simply lose interest.
Whoever invented Primetime is clearly not a business person, because it is not at all successful at bringing in new users. It's actually driving people away.
I agree R41. It's like some Michfest dyke bought the site and is determined to destroy it.
"I WAS JUST STUNG BY A BEE" is the title of a thread that has been in Wit & Wisdom for nearly two weeks. But you get a message that the thread doesn't exist? WTF?????
What could have been so horrible that it had to be deleted?
It was a racist bee, R43.
Whoa! I can't believe someone would turn a bee sting into a racist thread. I looked for it when I got some fire ant bites.
When Primetime ends these days, it seems as if fewer people return.
I've not come on lately with Primtime being in effect nonstop. It's boring when you can't post and I'm not giving out credit card information to an anonymous website with no clear owner.
Don't see the point of paying for mostly racist, bigoted, juvenile rantings. But it is rather fun to post, goad the morons when Primetime is OFF.
[quote]I'm not giving out credit card information to an anonymous website with no clear owner.
You can buy a Visa charge card at most grocery stores and then cut it up after it's used up. It's not as if you're giving away info that leads to your bank account.
Somebody started a thread "My trip to Kohl's" that had nine replies so I clicked on it and got a notice that the thread was deleted. Later, I saw it was still on the page and had eleven replies so I clicked on it again. Another deleted notice. WTF? I've never been to Kohl's but there's one in the next town so I was interested in reading the DL input.
DL is having issues, I've noticed whenever weird things start happening and the site slows down, Primetime soon follows
I've had 3 posts eaten in the last hour. Just disappeared.

That happens when they have three days with no Primetime. It appears that they need some PT just to tweak and make adjustments.
Your posts may be posted but don't show unless you totally close the page and then enter DL again. I already did that and everything I posted earlier, had actually gone through.
