I've had a look to see if anyone's created a specific thread for this though I can't seem to find one. 600+ off the topic posts came up, though I couldn't locate the one collective thread. While most of us do it, I'm more guilty than anyone else in here for posting tangents because put quite simply -I talk too much. So I wanted to create this specific thread to avoid that from happening any more. It might actually keep parent threads in tact; especially when others are looking for something in particular and don't have to search through all of our random tangents to find the answer they've been looking for. If at any point we feel as though we might steer off track with our topic, I think this is the thread to post it in. It's what I intend on doing anyhow for the sake of saving space and time in other threads. I think it will help other members and staff a great deal. If the community posts here on a regular basis then we wont ever have to search for this thread; it will more than likely just stay on the first page...and if that happens to be the case, I think we should use it. So! I will start off and shout out to Ed. Thanks for the cake! It was really sweet of you.

That's so odd. Karl made no changes to the log. He was clearly a figment of my imagination.

I dunno if I like this so much as I keep track of my stats and can say the 95+% of my replies are in answering or discussing the problems of others and when I post for another reason I feel guilty... Then to see everyone's reply stats go up from the person to person private chat is making me want to stay online nonstop for a week answering every missed question in the forums to get mine up. I am competitive I guess ;)

P.S. I as well have noticed something fishy in the forums with replies not showing up when they were posted. Gremlins in the system maybe...

You shouldn't feel guilty, Ed. You're here to have some fun with people as well as offer everyone your help and assistance. It shouldn't all be about hard work for you. We all acknowledge your efforts, so to allow yourself some off tangent comments is ok. Well, I think it is anyhow. Enjoy yourself some.

And yup. Probably just Gremlins.
those gremlins not only mess up things on here i think they steal too like peoples under garments heh

i see life that you had a say with rjun on another topic go girlfriend (-;

Undergarments? *laughs* Are you sitting there.. *shudders* Never mind.

And neh, I wouldn't call it a run in. Whilst I don't do drama, I can be opinionated. Not an ideal trait to have, but I am who I am. No one's right and no one's wrong in this instance. We just don't agree. I don't think he should be using this site to lure people away when they need help if there are people on here willing to give it. That's all. Did you manage to fall asleep minus any visitors this morning?
yes but never sleep enough and i agree on that of course alot of it can be simple to look up if it just html code needed to put in. of course google can make it a little complicated for some of their tools and services

*laughs* Ok..can I just make a valid point here? This person we have just referred to has created a new Dashboard and is stalking the forums where people are asking for help...He's replying with, "Hey do you want like scrolling text? If you want scrolling text visit http://www.ssfaq.synthasite.com For some reason i luv this site."

Now I feel I have a right to be opinionated. This is wrong. And while I didn't like how conversations went down last week, this is exactly what Ed and Boomer were saying. Do not profit from here when people are willing to give so much.

I think this is very wrong...though after this post, I will shut up.

http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite...
yes i saw that post a bit ago scrolling txt and i think the topic is

How do i put an acknowledgement on my website?

kinda pointless i think

I can't say any more because I said I'd shut myself up after that last post. And this is not me shutting up for the sake of giving everyone else on here peace.Though if you go back to that thread and read his defence...you'll understand why I'm annoyed. Pointless or not.
you mean "some reason i love this site" and in the site shows a link back to a topic here to post your site to advertise it?

site has been updated now heh schmoxies are up (-:

Ok. I'm just going to say this once because this thread wasn't made for drama [but I am annoyed], k? Have you not noticed that Rjun, who denied trying to lure people from GS to go to his own site, and whilst doing so tried to make me look like a jerk for not agreeing with him, is now stalking the forum under a new Dashboard and is using the place as a warm lead to his go to his site? You weren't here last week at this point, but a small misunderstanding lead to a very valid discussion. Basically, what he is doing is not even helping people on here, he's just sending them to his own site. Which, I might add, wouldn't even exist if it weren't for Synthasite. And he's totally abusing that in my opinion. That's it. Please don't be annoyed with me if I don't respond to any more posts regarding him. Whether people agree with me or not, they don't need to hear me carrying on.
agreed and basicly what i meant when i said what i said it just sends me to his site and also a link on there to link back here and to a xcertain topic to post their site anyway its forgotten by me now gremlin are abound muhahahaah

I hope nobody takes offense at me saying that I think we should take our chats off forum so I just now made a single chat page that we can use in real time...

http://getchatty.synthasite.com/

I just think that as this forum is for help and not simple chat back and forth it's best to leave it that way I feel. The point that I am trying to make is that when this thread gets full are we simply going to create another and then another? Would it be better to have a place instead that we can chat about anything and not have it affect the forums. Not have our every word scrutinized and googled as it is... I don't know about you all but as my URL is part of my name that when someone googles it I don't want them to see a thread filled with this and that and the good, bad and the ugly...

Anyway that's my two cents...

I am using GetChatty if anyone else wants to... come and follow me...

And L.i.G I as well am upset at that others attempt to do that which he is ;)... I have Santa as my alias but never have I said HO HO HO go take take a look at my reindeer...

No offense whatsoever, Ed. I more than hear where you're coming from. The only reason I created this thread is because tangents do take place. Whether it's me or anyone else in here. I can honestly tell you that I'd have no issues if we deleted this thread completely, but my question is, what if...when other users end up creating tangents from their posts? While we are chatting back and forth quite a bit in here, I did have a reason for creating it. I more than respect what you're saying, but I made this thread based on an outlet for people who do want to take a break at times..or for people who are responding in another thread to something though want to say more...It was designed to deter chat taking place in all other help threads. Either way, if you wish to make the request to remove it, it's not going to bother me at all, hun. Though I still go back to the original point of why it came to be as such. If people aren't having general chat in here to escape from time to time or to add an irrelevant thought triggered by a help thread...people are going to continue that tangent in the thread and will become what I was trying to avoid by creating this thread. Thanks for your honesty. Edit ] Just to add, I probably wont use GetChatty..but only because I generally don't use chat rooms, and had authentic reasons for creating this thread. So if we lose this thread, it's all good, I just need to be aware of how I manage tangents..though not everyone is going to be like that..and I think, in the end, threads are going to end up being all over the place with tangents again. And, to be fair, cause you know I respect you..though you've managed to journey on quite a few tangents in the past from what I've read, and they've been massive. I'm just trying to avoid this. But truly, if this isn't an appropriate place to leave those tangent etc..then let's get rid of it, aye?

I have a question for you my little Schmoxied friend. When I check my ewebcounter, I can see that some referrals come straight from email links. I know who I give my link to in terms of email. Though some of my referrals come from from Yahoo email users. I don't email people who use Yahoo. Then there are some people who are referred directly from their email though are located in places I don't have any connection with whatsoever. How does this work?
well that's hard to say i had like 2 hits like that the other day and i was like wth but basically anyone that goes to your site can email the link to friends and family and they can look at the link and the referrer will say yahoo or gmail or whatever email client they send it too and is opened from

This help at all?

You know how viral videos happen???

One person has your site emailed to them and then they forward it to their friends and then they forward to theirs and so on..

That's what I thought. This user has spent quite a lot of time on my site. And they're trying to conceal who they are, though their IP keeps showing up as the exact same.
umm how can he attempt it if the ip is the same no way to hide it any other way. must not have looked at my site then if he did then he would be anonymous indeed

What I'm saying is, that they have spent about half an hour going over my page. He/ she will come back, leave, come, leave then come back etc. The IP is exactly the same, as is the location. However, they are also concealing the details of what page they're entering and exiting. They've hit my site about 5 times and gone to every page...then come back 2 minutes later with the exact same details..other than what page they are entering or existing. I'm not inferring that he went to your site. I'm asking a general question because you seem to know a lot about stuff like this.
umm could it be a indexing robot maybe also could just directly enter the page through a new tab on Firefox i think and wont show the refferrer deatail also could just close the tab and wouldnt show the page where he would go to after your site but the ip and host name is the most important thing if something happens keep track of that and report it if need be.
also could be coming in from a bookmark also

Ip and host name...got it. Cheers for that, matey :-)
also i forgot to mention if they are using 1 anonymous proxy and it totally anonymous that will be the ip and host show on your tracker but you can still go to a site like this http://cqcounter.com/whois/ and find the abuse@email.com email address and report it if something bad happens to your site like defacement they may be able to track down the culprit

Here's what I propose? Close this thread and delete it completely, but there's going to have to be a very strong policy on tangents attached to the conditions of the GS forum. A lot of people are going to feel a little less liberated because they wont know what's considered equilibrium and what's not...but...if closing this thread down works...then we should do it.
now are you talking about this thread in particular or the other guys thread(s) that getting ppl to come to his site

Just installed this "live traffic feed" counter on my site.
You can watch your visitors in real-time and it has a live
traffic map. If anyone likes it click on the FEEDJIT link.
http://forsite.synthasite.com/
hahaha if you want to say download this then add the link directly to the counter instead of your website then have to click to open your site then again to open the link to the counter. and it not even a good info shower wont even show up when i try to use it so it was a useless wast of my time i wonder how many other people wasted their time with this?

Boomerdude! What up, bra? I just looked at GA and forsite has sent me 642 visits since the close of your poll!!!!! WOW!!!!!! Over 1100 to date! I can't tell you how pleased I am with that! Umbantu!

Guido - Howzit buddy,
Since I put that "live traffic feed" counter on my site last night,I
can see how many people are actually clicking on your site.
I had no way of seeing that stat before and I'm very happy for you.
I am still keeping the traffic on my site by opening your site in a
new tab so I have nothing to loose and you get the extra hits.
It's like http://guidographics.synthasite.com/ also being a feautured
site. Go back to my site and click on the "Watch in Real-Time" link.
Oh.... and its Ubuntu - not your Italian surfer lingo LOL.
Stay cool...

@ "alpha1121", "anonyman", "How much info you giving away?" or what ever
you want to call yourself!

If you spent 5 min on my site you would notice that it is dedicated to
other SynthaSite users sites.

Anyway, I don't know why I'm even freeking bothering with a reply here.
Seeing as you are the "expert", when is it OK and when is it not OK to
post a link to one's site. If you do answer, please us some punctuation,
caps and maybe paragraphs - your posts are very hard on the eyes.

Boomerdude! what up, bra? And here I thought it was my translation skills lacking as far as reading his posts. :) Ubuntu! knew the spelling was off, but phonetically, I was close... it's the thought that counts??? Hope the link I placed on my site is showing some trafic for you as well - Quid Pro Quo. Good to hear from you, the unofficial second amigo (I said 3 stooges, Ed said 3 Amigos - his sounds better) The traffic since your contest is amazing. In 10 days it doubled what I had the entire last 2 months! Peace, Guido
hey all so i wanted to post here to see if mabe the tech ppl could mabe see if they could maybe sometime in the future make the backup a little better these smarty error are really annoying to have to go through and fix and because of one thing mainly cmod permissions. is there a way to assure the files can be set and ready to go when you unzip them and upload them to another host.or is this mainly a fault on the uploaded host itself. i am unsure if these cmod permission can be somehow auto configured within the back up zip of the site itself so if you upload it somewhere else the permissions will be right and not have these problems.

Sorry you are having this problem. The easiest thing to do is to host with us, then there is no need to zip and unzip your files.

I will pass on your request to the tech people.
yes but im just posting on behalf of all ppl that may need more later but want to keep their site they made and might need to host it else where.
these errors because the cmod isnt set right on other host can be really hard to figure out but thx for passing it along Ruth
