Skip to comments.Notice - Old threads temporarily locked
Posted on 03/15/2002 12:27:20 AM PST by John Robinson
Threads posted prior to 9/4/01 are temporarily locked.
These threads use older technology which has yet to be fully integrated with the new system. In the meantime, to carry-over such threads into the new system, posters will be required to repost the article. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Thanks for the memories! That was sooo funny!
Caught some of your comments in the "So long to my friends..." post!
Gosh, I love this place.
Some brilliant stuff.
Some screwy stuff, too.
(Laz, for example)
It's maybe that alternate definition of temporary that is confusing everybody. The term I used means "probably never."
I did have hopes to integrate the old stuff into the new system, but this issue is complicated and not very useful, and growing less useful as time passes. So probably never. If you want to bump something from the past, create a new thread and link to the old one.
When will this temporary lockage cease?
Sadly it's looking more than temporary now. If it's worth bumping, it's probably worth reposting into the new system, linking back to the old style URL.
Just don't lock the Undead Thread, and I'll be fine.
Or never. :-( It ended up being a bigger job than I anticipated, for little benefit. The more time passes, the less useful this is.
We're never going to be able to post to these threads as-is like before. That just isn't feasible. They'd have to be inserted into the database... somehow.
Understood. I was hoping to bump a few Election 2000 threads to the top, like we do the 9/11 threads on occassion. I can certainly understand that the job is bigger than the benefit, and I know that there are bigger fish out there.
Once upon a time we could access old articles and post our comments.
Any news on older threads being unlocked?
Thanks in advance.
Sometimes I dream, and when I do I dream that we can use these threads like in the old days. :-)
Hugs to you and yours John.
About 4 years.
A day to the Lord is as a thousand years and a thousand years as a day.
could some one tell me two latin American countries that were impacted by the French and American REvolutions, and thus moved foward with a revolution of thier own?
4.5 years now.
I would urge the updating of older threads as soon as possible.
But it's really nice to know that being unable to find an old useful thread is not due to something we're doing wrong.
I've decided to ignore those pathetic losers except for the following standard response:
It may have been posted before, but I failed to see it, and I'm the center of the universe!
Didn't you get the memo?
Here's an old article I'd like to bump for bookmark.
John, what are the chances of re-posting the “DOWNSIDE LEGACY AT TWO DEGREES OF PRESIDENT CLINTON” series from Alamo Girl as a Truth File? With Hillary and Obama neck-and-neck, a refresher course would be welcome.
Thank you for remembering it!
Kudos for all the time and effort you put into it.
The Downside Legacy is accessible
Thank you for your encouragement and for linking to the DSL!
You are very welcome, FRiend.
