    thanks. I hadn't noticed that. I came in because my email was screaming that my box was full even though I cleared some last night when it screamed that at me. I think my paid subscription had also increased my message box size. If anyone actually needs me, you may need to leave me a visitor's message.

    I reloaded mine but since I was not a paid member at the date this seems to have reverted to, it is the smaller version. Try uploading yours again. However, per Josh's note at the top of the site, it may not save and you may have to do it again tomorrow. Then again, for all I know your original one will be back then...

    In general the site seems to have reverted to some time in March 2010. At least last night, a bunch of people were still listed as 'guest' or couldn't get on, but I think now at least they are new members. You missed the brief and shining moment when I wasn't a mod yet. Some people have old usernames, lots of us lost our bigger mailboxes/avatar perks if we had paid subscriptions.

    I expect Josh and Bryan and the server support have a ton of issues they are working on, and some of the bells and whistles might fold in later than earlier.

    I'd be happy to donate (for the first time in all these years!!) if the guys put up another RPF chip-in.
    Based on the idea of natural rights, government secures those rights to the individual by strictly negative intervention, making justice costless and easy of access; and beyond that it does not go. The State, on the other hand, both in its genesis and by its primary intention, is purely anti-social. It is not based on the idea of natural rights, but on the idea that the individual has no rights except those that the State may provisionally grant him. It has always made justice costly and difficult of access, and has invariably held itself above justice and common morality whenever it could advantage itself by so doing.

    I don't know what went wrong, but they may need to, in order to strengthen the system, in which case I know that would be greatly appreciated.

    Seconded. Not having the site yesterday made me realize how awful it would be if the site were never here.

    I'm looking forwarded to donating once I know everything is up-and-up. I was going to make a thread about it as soon as I knew it wouldn't be deleted in a re-config.

    He finally gets a chance to earn his money for the first time in seven and a half years. Leave it to Danke to declare him scapegoat and fire him.

    If we're going to fire him we need to downsize him when he's not needed. Do we learn nothing from these psycho corporations? If you're going to get rid of someone vital, do it when there's no crisis, so during the next crisis you can claim 'I didn't foresee that'. Don't dump him in mid-crisis. That leaves you no plausible deniability.

    So, I've asked you many times to tell us how to politely tell Republicans that they're setting themselves up to lose big again, without being rude about it, yet actually being heard by them.

    Have you come up with a way yet? Or are you still too busy arguing that those who think Trump should suck all the oxygen out of every single room (thus agreeing with ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox) are the put-upon, victimized underdogs?

    I was just talking in chat about this, but it is applicable here as well.

    [VoluntaryAmerican] RP forums is the best forum ive ever been on.
    [VoluntaryAmerican] I just went back to this old game forum today... and the people on there are total dicks.
    [VoluntaryAmerican] Granted, I haven't been on there for more than 4 years, but I've already been insulted twice for no apparent reason.
    [VoluntaryAmerican] We really do have a good group of people on this forum.

    Warm and Fuzzys,

    Sincerely VA.

    Mine went from 4700+ to 340. Seems the post count is back but the rep count is still short and my inbox is all loused up and notifications says I have new mail and a friend request, but neither is to be found.

    These may need to be corrected depending on how the DB is structured. If there are many data dependencies, slight errors like this might cause more trouble.

    I can't believe there wasn't a poll. I was hoping asking Mitt Romney to become an Admin was going to be an option.

    Forum cleanup is a b!tch! I was pleasantly surprised to see that my account still existed - thanks to any and all who helped with the recovery.

    Now I'm wondering who the fk has my ip and email - f'n internet ninjas!

    What was the extent of the damage, Josh? What'd they get?

    I was for firing Josh before I was against firing Josh.The Department of Inter-webs is compiling a report at which time I reserve my right to decide to not decide.

    What??? - you mean you haven't been added to the Obama activist list and mail bombed with anti-gun propaganda yet? My sincere apologies! I'll take it up with the hackers and get this fixed ASAP!

    One has to ask about the timing and how effective we are still as a movement. The site went down the day the NY AWB happened. Was someone worried we'd stir up too much shit?

    Public education is not education ... it is schooling.
    Our military is not defense ... it is warmongering and empire building.
    Government police do not protect ... they control.
    Regulations do not regulate ... they protect the status quo.
    Government banks do not distribute money based on effort ... it is gifted to close friends ... and some of it trickles down.

    The result is war, poverty, fear, chaos, and hopelessness for most people with abundance for a few elite.
