...jwwphotos! :)

Yes, that's right, jww is now running LBPC. Are you afraid? Well you should be, because I sure am! :p

Just kidding, just kidding. I'm not afraid at all, and in fact I'm very excited to be handing over control of the site to jww. He's been around the community a very long time, and he certainly knows what he's doing.

As for me, I'll still be around. I'll even still be an administrator, but mostly just as a backup. jww is the one in charge now, so please join me in welcoming him to his new role.

Congrats jww! :hatsack:

Welcome to our new admin! Lets throw mud around and watch him have to clean it up! ...I joke I joke. xP

Hopefully this admin won't disappear into the fields of nowhere land in under just half a year like some of the other 1s. :p *mew

Thanks everyone! ..and a special thanks to my good friend and collage, err college? oh wait..(google)... colleague, Taffey! :) We sure appreciate all that you have done for us and thanks for staying on to give me a hand here or there, or in case I lose the keys to the admin hut.

I will do my best to keep the site running and with the help of our stellar mods, I think we will be ok. Keep in mind though that I do work for a living and cannot be here 24/7, but I will do what I can.

We still have quite a bit of clean up to do to be 100% operational, but hopefully I can figure out the issues and get everything fixed as soon as I can. So please be patient! We might have a few bumps yet on the flight, keep your arms in the ride at all times, and please return your tray tables to the seat back position. :p

Hi jwwphotos, and also congrats from me! Mayest thou have a lucky hand in finding all those nasty little bugs that make life difficult for us. Mayest thou turn out in being skillful in finishing them off! Mayest thou have also free Sundays... every now and then! :p
Many greetings, Jürgen :)

Yes! Yes! Awesome!

You know I love you Taffey dude bro and it's great that you're not disappearing completely but I have been saying for a long time that there needed to be some promotion somewhere amongst the mods so I'm happy to see it happen. Congrats to jww on landing the job, you're one of the few who's stuck around for most of my time here and you've been great as a mod so I know the old place in safe hands. Good luck and pls dont ban :)

I guess I should stop calling you jew photos now :cry:

You Rock!

So we've had admins who were evil warlords, purveyors of fine nuts, and now rocks.

Watch, our next admin will be Morgoth :rolleyes:

Eh, but seriously. I don't know if I'd say congrats since this is more of a responsibility than a reward, but I will say thanks. Also, making that joke I didn't think of earlier.

LOL!! Thanks StevenI. I really appreciate the kind words. ....but to quote a favorite song.

"The band is just fantastic, that is really what I think.
Oh by the way, which one's Pink?"

...or in this case, Pinky. Duuuuuurp! ;)

meanwhile congratulations jjw.... welcome to the headache inducing world of LBP forum administration, make sure you stock up on lots of asprin.

That's why I questioned why everyone is saying Congrats. As far as I can tell, this is more of a public service than any reward.

Oh well. Back to hiding under my rock.

But seriously, this was needed, and thanks for stepping up to the plate :)

..but seriously, I just want to help get the site back working again. It will take some time, but hope to get there asap. Sad part is this is my busy time of year and going out of town soon. :eek:

Well.. the obvious is all the bots that have gotten in, then new members actually being able to post. I have some things I might visit. Maybe a bit of forum clean up, but I need a bit of time to study it all and see what is possible under vBulletin.

Then I might have some pizza. lol

if only we had some kind of system that made it so the first 10 posts you have to enter a code or some mash of letters/numbers

Is it possible for you to hide banned users/ spambots from the active users list? Not a big deal, but I don't like seeing the active user list be so full of grey :/

It would be about to the tune of 5900+ of them had we not already been working on it for the past few days.

True... she is around more than us and really good at what she does. ...but if she isn't around, simply use the report button on your thread and say "Please lock". Makes it much easier as we get an email alert.

I think I saw that option, but it was for ALL posts. I think I am getting it sorted, I just need to clear all the ones in that are not banned, then we can slowly get back to normal.

Problem is the sheer number and I haven't found a bulk remover except for IP bans. That takes care of a lot, but we sorta had the door open for like 3 or 4 months. :(

Cool beans.

Do you have FTP access to all the site files? Stuff like fixing the spoiler tag button turning Spanish when you open/close it would be just editing some javascript. I mean, I know the whole "being able to register" thing is more important and stuff...
Kill me.

Yup... FTP out the wazoo.. that's that online florist thing right? :rolleyes: lol

Yes, I want to fix all that kind of stuff. Thanks for the reminder! Though I would think it would be in a setting somewhere, but regardless I will get it at some point. :)
