I feel like Frodo Baggins gone back to the Shire. The place is so deserted, and people could give a damn about it. It was rising in popularity and all, and somehow it crashed. I just wonder ... how did it happen? And why were people deterred?

Makes me sad too....My bro let me take over but then I soon realized (which I kind of always knew) I dont know shit about running a site. So now my only tasks now are deleting the fucking porn and slowly teaching myself the ropes. Im sorry everyone for I have failed you all sad.gif But I will try my hardest to get my shit together.

It sounds like you need help and you already have one offer from an active member. Please replace the mods that are no longer active or moderating their forums.

You can bump me down to a regular member if you like, but, really, what is there to moderate? Kind of a waste of energy if you ask me. Intelligent discussion ceased here about two years ago.

I stop by for laughs now. And the porn is good too.


--------------------
I know you're out there. I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid. You're afraid of us, you're afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end, I came here to tell you how this is going to begin. Now, I'm going to hang up this phone, and I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world without you. A world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world...where anything is possible.
Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

Heh, yeah really. I didn't even realize the place had been invaded by pornos.

I guess there isn't much to moderate. Yesterday I was surprised to find I was the only one logged in on this website. Maybe we should re-launch the site or something. "Everybody, be intelligent!"

I'd be a moderator. I think the main thing is that most of the core members are gone. What happened to Cosmic? I just know he stopped administrating. RATMgirl left. RATMROXMYSOX. Grimer 54. zapatista. Tons of others. Anybody know what happened to them, by any chance?

I'd be a moderator, too. I'm trying to get on here more often. It's hard right now because this forum's kind of empty, and I'm extremely busy, but I'll try to keep up with it.

Here's what I think. We've got to work with people, also new people, who've showed interest in this place. I think the following people could be mods: Sarielite, Casbah, Regilas, Elisium (if they are all interested) and maybe a couple others who have posted here lately. Sara should stay on as a mod, she's not always here, but she shows up regularly to take care of her forum (if she's interested, i don't want to talk for anyone). I wouldn't mind staying on until this place is in some form of 'functioning' mode. After that, I'm happy to give my forum to someone who loves news and current affairs.

All of those rocks there, all of them,
Thrown at us for as long as we can remember.
All of our dreams, all of them,
Flattened and crushed, as soon as they start taking shape.
Ah baby, who do they take us for.

Battered and bruised,
constantly,
relentlessly.
Killing? Not their aim.
Keeping us in an unimportant place is what this is about.
Ah baby, who do they think we are.

As I said in another thread:

QUOTE (Sarielite)
I'd be tempted to start a petition to get the forums restructured so they're easier to manage. There are about 25 forums and subforums right now, and most of them see no action. Breaking that down into four main sections and refiling the stuff that already exists seems like a way to both increase activity and make the place easier to manage.

Perhaps:

* Politics
* News
* ZDLR
* Lounge

Give each moderator control over two of the forums, but each one gets a different two. This decreases the chances that one mod will go MIA and leave a forum totally unmoderated (like Politick).

I might even be willing to dedicate the time to do the restructuring, if it's time-intensive.

I'll be a mod, sure. This place needs to become alive again. I agree with what you're saying, though. We need to focus on new people. The way I learned about this site is by word of mouth (or text, really). So we need to bring it back to life, and then spread the word.

Also, some spammers need to be banned immediately. Two of them are going on every forum and posting pornography.

Am I the only new user then? I've also noticed that this place suddenly just stopped activity. We could use more admins and more banning, im sick of logging in here everyday and seeing 20 posts of pornography.

I sense a business opportunity!

zdlr.net merges with porn retailer?


For real, meh. What'd you ("you" in the general sense) expect? Welcome to the internet.
