Think again, Geekman.

For multiple channels, we could set up a BlueNC IRC channel, but I don't think that anyone knows how to use IRC anymore....

pfffft.

However, I'd be glad to share my yahoo instant messenger ID with anyone from BlueNC who wants it. That might be the best way to solve the problem and not put extra pressure on Lance.

Is there a way to set up a Chat box for logged in BlueNC folks? I know you are extremely busy but would be fun to chat across the site with folks logged in?

Would also be better(?) when we do the open dialague thingies? Would then just have to copy paste the entire chat session to a posting?

BTW, thanks so much for your time and energies, your doing an awesome job with this forum.

But I think it would also have to have the ability for multiple chat channels to support diffrent agenda items without confusing conversations. Hummmm, that last statement just might have made this request unattainable for a vol based site?

We once had a chatbox, and it got used a bit

I'm trying to remember why we took it down -- anyone recall? I think maybe that after an initial rush of use, it got to the point where it was rare to enter and find anyone else there.

Because it didn't work very well

and it slowed down the site. :)

the best reason

not to bring it back!

Dont shelf my request, but shread it, burn it, incenerate the ashes again, place what ever is remaining into a spaceship and point it to the sun and launch that idea directly at the sun so it never ever comes back again!

Consider it sent to the Phantom Zone

AHHHH

OK, we been there and the use possibly did not warrent keeping it.

No need to retry something that was not utilized.

Thanky!

We also need to rething the categories here,

as right now they don't make any sense.

At the risk of overthinking it

I think you're overthinking it. No categories is fine.

a LOGIN OPTION on the home page. I am still experiencing the getting logged off problem, but now, I dont get the option to log back in, thus I have to open a thread, hit the login from that thread, then hope I dont get logged out when I jump back within the site.

Help!

This is past weird, and sounds like a bug

Is anyone else experiencing a problem where the login box is not available?

the bug

has bitten me as well.

The bug shall bite no more

Anglico's first shot at the answers

Is there a limit to the number of posts a person can write each day? NO

Is there a limit to the number of diaries a registered member can have front-paged each day? NO

Is there a limit to the number of diaries a registered member can have recommended at any given time? NO

Can a front-page author have a recommended dairy? If so, why? YES. SOME FRONT PAGE AUTHORS DON'T "FRONT-PAGE" THEIR POSTS. WHEN THAT HAPPENS, THEY'RE HANDLED JUST LIKE ANY OTHER USER.

Why don't you have more national news on the front page? BLUENC IS FOCUSED ON NORTH CAROLINA. WE'RE ALL INTERESTED IN NATIONAL NEWS TOO, BUT THERE ARE PLENTY OF OTHER PLACES TO GO FOR THAT. POSTS ABOUT NATIONAL ISSUES ARE MORE THAN WELCOME, THEY JUST WON'T NORMALLY BE FOUND ON THE FRONT PAGE.

What is BlueNC Wow? WOW IS A SUBVERSIVE SPLINTER GROUP (JUST KIDDING). WOW STANDS FOR "WOMEN ON WEDNESDAYS" - WHICH HAPPENS ROUGHLY EVERY OTHER WEEK. ON THOSE WEDNESDAYS, THE FRONT PAGE IS CONTROLLED BY A GROUP OF BLUENC WOMEN WHO HAVE COME TOGETHER TO ENCOURAGE MORE PARTICIPATION BY WOMEN IN BLOGGING IN GENERAL AND BLUENC IN PARTICULAR.

What is "track changes" and why should I use it? TRACK CHANGES IS A TAB ON THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF YOUR SCREEN. IT'S THE MOST CONVENIENT WAY TO KEEP UP WITH CONTENT THAT HAS CHANGED SINCE YOUR LAST VISIT.

What are the minimum requirements for a post to be considered for the front page? I DON'T KNOW THAT WE HAVE MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS. THOUGHTFUL POSTS WITH GOOD ANALYSIS USUALLY MAKE IT. SO DO POSTS THAT CALL FOR READERS TO SPRING INTO ACTION BY MAKING PHONE CALLS, WRITING LETTERS OR SENDING EMAILS. NATIONAL STORIES WILL NOT GENERALLY BE FRONT-PAGED. BUT SOMETIMES IT'S JUST RANDOM. ON DAYS WHEN THERE AREN'T MANY POSTS BEING WRITTEN, YOU MAY SEE STORIES BEING FRONT-PAGED JUST TO KEEP THE SITE FRESH.

Can I copy and paste whole stories from other sources into posts? NO. PLEASE DON'T PASTE WHOLE STORIES. CHOOSE SMALL SECTIONS, PASTE THEM IN, ADD YOUR COMMENTARY, AND BE SURE TO CLEARLY LINK TO THE ORIGINAL SOURCE.

Can I use someone else's photographs or graphics in my post? NOT WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION, UNLESS THE MATERIAL IS IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN.

Is information at BlueNC copyrighted and if so, who owns the rights? PLEASE SEE THE COPYRIGHT NOTICE AT THE BOTTOM OF EVERY PAGE.
