...Because that's the kind of guy I am. Big changes are coming to Datalounge. You'll see. Soon enough....
Just to let you know ahead of time...

What will they be?
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 1||10/16/2012|
I am a bit puzzled right now, because I don't think I get the 'message posted' message.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 2||10/16/2012|
Disregard my message at r2. Still getting the post saved messages after all.

Nick Denton bought Mediopolis for his new piece of stagemeat?
Bradford Shellhammer fucked his way into our hearts and minds - again?
Nan staged a lay-in and now each thread is moderated by a furry-lipped blatino hersbear?
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 4||10/16/2012|
I love Datalounge. I wish it only the best earrings and caftans.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 5||10/16/2012|
Be still my heart.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 6||10/16/2012|
Arianna? AOL? Blatino?!
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 7||10/16/2012|
Editor, how about a "block user" function? Sure, it'd reset when the annoying cunt clears her cache, but at least it'd help ignore the trolls.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 8||10/16/2012|
But are they good changes or bad changes?
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 9||10/16/2012|
You beautiful, sweet, silly, and stupid R9; all change is always bad.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 10||10/16/2012|
Since you're telling us now so you don't have to tell us then, is the big change going to be that DL is merging with the MichFest board?
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 11||10/16/2012|
You know what would be really fun? A merger of DL and the Free Republic. Then we wouldn't need to go at it hammer and tongs from a distance.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 12||10/16/2012|
Will it involve nacreous layers?
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 13||10/16/2012|
The promised searcheable database of all posts?
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 14||10/16/2012|
[quote] Editor, how about a "block user" function?
Wouldn't that be heaven?

There's a new world comin'...

Only authenticateds will be allowed to post?

Datalounge is an insatiable bottom!

|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 19||10/16/2012|
I'm telling you -- it's going to be a real change.. the first big one in a while. So hold on to your pearls, clutchers.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 20||10/16/2012|
Thankfully, the inline pics and links have been removed. If that was the big change you were referring to, thank you. Otherwise, don't change it too much. Bringing back tabs would be nice, though.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 21||10/16/2012|
Can I hope for an actual archive?
Can I hope for the ability to apply Trolldar to the beginning posts on threads?
Can I hope for a more thorough FF tagging system?
(Anyone else remember when FF actually sent the post to a separate archive?)
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 22||10/16/2012|
Contributions are going up to $19.
Primetime from now until the day after Oscar night.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 23||10/16/2012|
As long as I don't have to pay to post, then we're good.
I've bemoaned the demise of the good gossip here before, but so far the site annoyances are outweighed by the fact I don't have to authenticate or pony up.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 24||10/16/2012|
Or, um, eliminating Prime Time.
Because this site was locked down for the past 2 weeks every time I tried to access it.
And, no, I will NEVER subscribe.

Like Reddit, except with subforums for discussions of Tony Stewart, hole-presenting and Joan Steffend on her sixth glass of Yellow Tail.

An automatic electrocution function every time a Freeper posts?
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 27||10/16/2012|
DL will take control of your webcam and when you post, a god awful picture of you will accompany your post.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 28||10/16/2012|
Just as long as it is still here and I can access it and read it and post I will be fine. I would be lost without DL and they would probably have to up my meds. Seriously.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 29||10/16/2012|
we shall see...

Didn't that "Things Datalounge Needs" thread get summarily deleted after less than a day's worth of life?
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 33||10/16/2012|
It will be for everyone to sign on using Facebook and have your name displayed along every post you write. There have been complaints by some actors about defamation posted on this site. To prevent lawsuits and to defer responsibility to posters, real names will be displayed. Changes are expected to be rolled out in a few weeks.

Really, moderator? That's why it's called 'gossip'.

Clare got her bread pudding? End of an era?
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 37||10/16/2012|
Fuck you, "moderator". You ain't the Webbie! I didn't tingle at your post and Webbie always makes me tingle.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 38||10/16/2012|
That makes sense. The Facebook vanguard have always been all over DL this year, defending their company. I wouldn't be surprised if there were a business connection already. Too bad that those of us who eschew that narcissist-bait site will no longer be able to post here.
You'll be left with bad gossip and authenticated Freepers. Have fun...
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 39||10/16/2012|

Search will actually, um, search.

Please wait until after November 6th. You know, we can only take so much excitement at once.

Why, so they have! Thanks, R21 -- I've been using the iPhone/iPad view to avoid them, so I didn't realize they were gone. Good riddance!

I am already heavily involved in considering options that make our independence go away. Right now, your posting privileges aren't in danger. If Obama is re-elected, it will be. Mitt Romney gives Datalounge the greatest chance to remain independent. Remember, in the world of anonymous message boards, you are either gossiper or you get gossiped about. So far, Datalounge has been a gossiper. If Obama is re-elected, all of your posting privileges will be shipped overseas. Keep that in mind when you go to the polls Nov. 6.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 44||10/16/2012|
Archives, perhaps? Some of those classic threads really ought to be permanently enshrined.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 45||10/16/2012|
The editorials will return by popular demand.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 46||10/16/2012|
I hope the Facebook theory isn't true. I would hate to have to leave.
Where will all the refugees meet up?
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 47||10/16/2012|
The in-line pics are still visible on my computer.

None of you are right so far.

Cleverbot MHB v. 1.0 - the database is now fully populated, so her responses will be in real-time.

Timeline for this, OP?
I'll be gone too if there's a FB sign up requirement-although my spidey sense tells me that post is off.
OTOH, maybe Simon Halls is behind this.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 51||10/16/2012|
So, unless your being a trolling tool, OP, the FB thing is bullshit?
Real time chat? Avatars in profiles? Split topic boards again?
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 52||10/16/2012|
There will be a special forum for Anderson Cooper.

A battery of special enticements for subscribers:
A free toaster with every subscription?
Special savings coupons for subscribers who may register to accrue points for posts and transfer these points to coupons redeemable, on applicable third Tuesdays, for invitation-only savings at the Piperlime Accessories Wall?
Special reduced rate subscriptions to GENRE Magazine (flyovers) or Christopher Street (in the know Manhattanites)?
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 56||10/17/2012|
Oh, R56. We only read JANDRA magazine around these here parts.

Thanks for telling me NOW so you don't have to tell me THEN.

I'm sorry it's going away forever soon, but I understand that the you-know-what-company-we-can't-say-the-name-of has been losing (Excuse me. Loosing) up to $30 a month with the Datalounge Secret Mindreading Trojan Beta Test Project. Obviously this sort of loss is insupportable, and the results of the beta after 12 years have continued to be "indeterminate."
But then I realized that I most miss the DL when I'm on it. So maybe it's all good.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 59||10/17/2012|
I would like to make some suggestions...
I would love posts to show up instantly and the elimination of the lag time between posting and when it shows up.
A delete feature for the OP to delete a post or thread.
Maybe one or two open days per week, where everyone can start threads. I pay and don't mind, but realize that a lot of people just won't do it.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 60||10/17/2012|

Ciaran, I saw the pictures in Chrome but not in IE (don't know about Firefox or other browsers) -- the iPhone/iPad view did get rid of them in Chrome. Now they seem to gone in Chrome, hooray!

They're gone from Mozilla Aurora now, too. I didn't like having them on the front page.

[quote]Maybe one or two open days per week, where everyone can start threads.
They do that for 40 minutes between 3 and 4 a.m. EST one day a week. It's not advertised. You just have to know about it and hit on the right day, which changes each week. If every non-member sets their alarm to wake up and come here between 3 and 4 on the right day, they can start a big bunch of threads to add to the DL fiction.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 70||10/18/2012|
My DL world hasn't been rocked yet. What was the change? The revamped 'search' function?
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 71||10/25/2012|
Does the search actually search now?
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 72||10/25/2012|
1. Pictures are back.
2. My friend Julie, that cunt, has accepted the position of DataLounge Editrix.
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 73||10/25/2012|
Julie is a cunt! You absolutely CANNOT promote her over me!
|by Nicky Know-it-all||reply 74||10/25/2012|
The new search function that doesn't function half the time is no better than the last search function that didn't function half the time. Thus, I don't think the sometimes working new search function is the big surprise.

This isn't the Datalounge I remember. It's very estrogen-heavy now, kinda lame.
