Admin Moo

I'm pleased to announced two new admins:


Dexter - new forum owner!

Dexter's been an active member of the forum for nearly 13 years, and over that time has been a strong contributor and a great role model.  I have no doubt that he'll be an excellent leader for our forum's future.


none - new admin

none has experience running multiple forums in the past, and has graciously offered to help us keep this place running.  He is already working on technical improvements behind the scenes so that we can continue to stay up-to-date and dominate social media.  (Facewho?  Reddiwha?  No thanks!)


I want to give a special shout out to AgnosticDamien, who recently informed me that I'm his long-lost sockpuppet.  I love you, sock daddy!  And thank you to everyone else: you've made it an absolute pleasure to run the forum for the last several years!

Dexter is the man. None is great too in spite of chasing away hot chickies. He swung a heavy hammer at one time. Not as big as Ratman's though,ouch!

I think Admin Moo is Mooby's sock puppet myself.

Wow! any plans on getting rid of the curmudgeon button also know as the smite button. It's so antiquated and anti social.

Congrats Dexter, your baby has arrived. The forum is your new child.

Just wondering if the links and emotes and those type features will be straightened out? It's disjointing. Maybe it's on my end on my computer I don't know.

And thank you to none! <that sounds bad but you know what/who I mean.

Are you running in https?  We have an https certificate, but using it throws mixed content warnings and every time I tried to force redirect all links to https it caused the forum to lock up (both by using our built-in tools and by manually editing .htaccess.)  So if you browse the site in https it will not load many of our images in your browser.

Hopefully that is something none is able to fix at some point because I never was able to get it to work.  The other option is if the admins decide to upgrade us from SMF 2.0 to 2.1 at some point (currently 2.1 is in beta test) this issue might fix itself because SMF 2.1 has the https built in.

But for now, try switching our site from https to http if your browser will let you.  Some browsers have addons that let you easily switch back and forth: I have an addon called Smart HTTPS on Firefox that I can click every time IGI loads in https to force it back to http.

I'm going to try firefox. Thanks Mooby.

GratefulApe

Oh OH, I figured out the http thing. Everything works fine now for me.

Cool stuff.

Mooby the Golden Sock

You think you're going to get an answer when you ask it like that?

Thanks guys.  If there is anything I can do to help let me know.
