Thread: Are we pau with HT?

    Default Re: Are we pau with HT?

    Come now, you know that argument falls flat, I'm all about e-partying until left like Custer fighting til the last sword swing in a forum that has become as vital as shouting in space. I'm happy with me, if others aren't, too bad, that's their problem. I grew up in the heart of So. Kal kustom kool when it really mattered and knew the right people, it is part of my DNA. Should some not appreciate my overwhelming coolness... or fear to follow, that's OK. I don't expect much from anybody these days, most are bottomless pits of stale air, so I'll simply put out whatever for the few that want to participate, as I do with the other few forums I visit, just like with my circle of worthy friend's and their understandings about me.

    Ron, if you're so concerned with Ht and its viability - why not try contributing something of value or real interest? something that has some depth or heft? Your choice of subjects often interests only you or is so vague that no one is interested in pursuing it any further than reading your initial post. and it isn't only you who does this with vague posts. and I'm not the only person who is mentioning this so please, nobody needs to attack me. Just let it go, let it rest for a while. HT will survive quite well - its been around for many years and really doesn't seem in any danger of going away. Individual contributors go away, but not HT itself.

    Well, here's a constructive suggestion, though not necessarily a practical one. Update the forum software to make it easier to post pictures and links to visual representations that will display as images, especially youtube links. After all, that's one of the things we use web forums for, as a way to find, read about, hear, and look at things on the web that friends recommend to us.

    The forum at early-retirement.org uses forum software which makes it very easy to refer people to youtube videos with an image that appears in a forum posting. When composing a post, you just put in a link to the youtube video, and when published, the post will have the image. Pretty neat.

    Are you kidding? I've probably posted more often and more of substance than anyone for the last 2 years. And... yes, I post about things that are of interest and relevance to me, I should post topics that DON'T interest me? And I would know what could possibly interest others, like those who don't even contribute much, or at all? Seriously, where do you come up with this?

    Yes indeedie.

    I wonder, does this thread illustrate why this site has the activity it recently has?

    If you mean the very recent uptick as I alluded to previously, then I'd say yes, but shaking the tree only provides so many goods. It's up to everybody to shake things up with themselves so we maintain even the small surge.

    I think this thread has spawned a fervor for funny titled threads. Okay... that's cool!
    Life is either an adventure... or you're not doing it right!!!

    There are also posters who feel, "Hey you don't post in my thread, then I'm won't post in your thread."

    Really? And you base this supposition on ... ?

    Prime reason I don't post in a thread is because the topic doesn't interest me, like many sports ones or current film or TV topics. I don't believe I would ever look at a thread, see that (e.g.) "Walkoff Balk" started it, and think, "well, screw THAT thread then." More likely, I might think, "oh, he posted something about a sports topic where I know nothing or have nothing to add, so I won't post there." But I still am likely to open the thread at least once just to be certain - and perhaps your topic/post may surprise me, or it might be something I'd like to learn more about.

    Why is there an "ignore" option then?

    I use the ignore option. There are certain posters who I don't want to bother with their posts, and "ignore" works perfect for that.

    Is there an "ignore" feature for an entire thread? I've used it for individual posters but not a thread.

    Yes, sort of. Just check to see who started the thread and just ignore the whole thing.

    I think you may have just confirmed WB's point for me. I can handle that.

    Sorry, not mine. If I ignore you, I can't learn from you.

    four months and here I am. I'll probably be off for another few months after this post.

    PZ me thinks you need to create an App for iPhones and Androids to keep this site up and active.

    I for one rarely use my desktop as well as my laptop computers since migrating to an iPhone 4s. Debating to go to an iPad but am resisting as it's just another gizmo to carry around carefully. Honestly if I can't find a need for a laptop, I just don't see the need for an iPad either, but a smartphone has become part of my daily routine to the point where HT is a rare occurance anymore, heck I even see PZ on FB on a daily basis and his lovely wife.

    PZ make a HT App!!
    Life is what you make of it...so please read the instructions carefully.

    If I'm not mistaken, mobile app development costs quite a bit of $$$$ to pay for development, design, hosting, maintenance, etc.
