Skip to comments.Vanity: Help - How Can I Re-establish Old Tag-line?
Posted on 05/18/2014 10:47:46 AM PDT by dagogo redux
Somewhere, somehow, in the last year my tag-line got deleted.
I'd like to re-instate it, but can't seem to find out how to do this. I've looked through the admin sections several times, can't seem to find out the mechanism to do so. Any help is appreciated. TIA.
Just scroll back through your old posts to the time when you were using it. It’s there.
Post a reply to somebody. Immediately below the ‘Your Reply’ field, is a field titled ‘Tagline.’
Just post a reply here, and you can re enter your tagline...
If I understand your question.. When you dd a comment to a thread, there is a box directly under the “your reply” box that says “Tagline”.
You can add it or change it there
Hit ‘post reply’ and fill in the space provided for ‘tagline’
then post a comment and hit ‘post’
Let’s see if that works: It used to be automatic, which must be why I never paid attention to the little box there - not sure why it turned off, but hope it stays on post to post.
I just added a tagline posting this.
Yep, it’s there automatically now. Thanks a great deal folks. Sorry to have wasted bandwidth.
There is a box of lost tag lines under the sink in the FR canteen, one of them could be yours.
That’s a good one. I can see why you wanted it back.
I think I like:
Did you pay your Tagline tax?
Hee hee, yep.
There are some good ones out there.
I think someone on the forum collects taglines, one post it’s there, the next ... gone!
I haven’t changed mine in years.
I covers so many situations so well.
“Did you pay your Tagline tax?”
Considering the mental health disruption a lost tagline can cause, one would hope that our ObamaCare taxes/fees/tolls/penalties/extortion would cover the cost.
We had a poster once. His screen-name was A+Bert.
When some of the name selection programing changed during an extended “time out” for ol’ Bert, the system would not accept the “+” character.
We heard for months about how he wanted his “+” back in his screen-name endless whining.
Same thing here. Last night I said “where’s my tagline?” but I had forgotten it!
Scrolled backwards to mid April before it reappeared. Must remember, check your work.
You can’t. It’s lost forever. They can never be reused.
The FR enforces tagline complexity.
I heard you were only issued a tagline permit after a monthly donation commitment ;-)
But, but . . . I AM re-using it, right here, right now!
I’m making my dollar-a-day contributions again now - maybe that’s the reason.
So, would Chief Justice Roberts - bless his heart and brain, if he’s got them - would he consider this a tagline penalty or a fee or a tax?
I can’t WAIT for the day I can change mine!
You had a tagline ???
Does the IRS know about this ???
It was registered in the Seychelles, and will be again. It’s appraised value is a well-guarded secret.
A need for the IRS to know this tagline was not mentioned on the latest tax or Census forms as far as I could see, but I think I was supposed to mention it on the aqua-farming portion of the MUST-FILL-OUT-UNDER-PENALTY-OF-LAW form the D of Agriculture sent me regarding my 1.3 acre spread.
Probably a penalty — for failure to comply ;-)
A+Bert get a time out? NO WAY! [my shocked face]
He never bugged me, though the various causes of his many "timeouts" offended some.
I miss Bert sometimes. I miss ash, too. He was a pro. It would be entertaining to throw some of the youngsters in the pit with ash, just to see how they did.
30 posts, and no one asked him if he was signed in? They’re slipping...
No one asked him if he was logged in...
I never had any problems with Bert. Some figured he was sometimes posting drunk and hence his play got off the fairway. Who knows. He enjoyed it while he could.
Ash was another matter. Morgan and his “Ash Alerts” got as tiresome as Ash did himself. Morgan’s flame-out was more epic to me than anything Ash did.
For many Freepers the first question would be.
Do you remember what it was?
RE Tagine tax: Don’t give 0bama any ideas.
Although these guys are often dismissed as gross "sell outs" who had the commercial success that The Replacements deserved, this album will always hold a special place in my heart. You see, they were unknowns when I got tickets to take my then new girlfriend to see them at Irving Plaza in New York City. Of course, like 99% of the population back then she hadn't heard of them and thought that their name was ridiculous, but sure enough, about a week after the concert (which was decent, not great) "Same Name" blew up on the radio and they were superstars. As a result, "Same Name" has always been kind of "our song" (my then girlfriend is my now wife), and a fine mid-tempo ballad it is, even today after all the overexposure.
The rest of this absurdly named album, which is where the band became more chart-mindful after a rawer, harder rocking first three albums (the ones the indie crowd likes, of course), strikes a good compromise between driving rock and accessible pop. The guitars are bright but punchy, the drums have a propulsive pop, and Hector Diaz adds his crisp yet not-too-glossy (yet undeniably radio friendly) touch to a catchy batch of tunes.
Of course, you could argue that if you've heard one of these songs you've heard them all; a lack of variety and originality is definitely a problem with The Taglines, as the band seems to rework the same chords in slightly different ways, so some of the songs start to sound similar after awhile. Also, I'm not a big fan of bassist Bobby D'Angelo (who plays the goofy sidekick while main man Chris Carroll plays the rugged teen heartthrob), mostly because of his wimpy voice (he sounds like the guy in R.E.O. Speedwagon) but also because his songs are more hit-or-miss.
Still, if you can get past their ridiculous name and the fact that Carroll sounds like a smoothed over Paul Westerberg crossed with Bon Jovi (their cheesy lyrics on songs such as "Lappin' It Up" and "Erector Set" also give Jon a run for his money), youll probably concede that the band has undeniable strengths, chief among them being their undeniable hooks and catchy harmonized choruses. In addition to the gorgeous Same Name, which broke the band big after years of toiling in relative obscurity, the excellent "Baked," which contains a great groove along with Carroll's weary vocals and even a good guitar solo, also got some airplay.
Green Grass Grows, Alpo Man, Lonely One, Not So Unusual, and Lips Spread Open (the latter an inspiration for the Foo Fighters "Everlong?") are other highlights with soaring, anthemic riffs and easily singable choruses. A few songs ("Seriously Sober" and "My Girl Has Munchausen Syndrome," for example) fail to really ignite, and their campy Alice Cooper-like cover of the Lime Spiders Slave Girl seems out of place, but by and large the band's energetic and polished brand of power pop satisfies, though the band really went for a top 40 sound thereafter (sometimes with excellent results, it should be added, like on Dizzy Up The Girls Suicide Jockey and Legs Over America, both of which were major hits).
He he! :)
