It don't know what to tell you, It's showing up for me. The Mongo Only Pawn In Game of Life, Video? However, they show up as a blank box in the comment section before you save it.
I was seeing it as only a blank box even after I saved it, but when I reloaded the page it came up fine. Thanks again for your help! Please accept a small posbang in appreciation.
Any way to get a more detailed response from an admin (unnamed) who dropped a 1000pt neg for "
I know the points are just numbers, but it's a bit offensive when I didn't "name call" but merely pointed out how defenders of RR had done so with much venom. I think the worst "name" I called was "RR loyalist". In comparison, here are a couple examples of folks who didn't see a -1000 today while insulting this swell fella. I'll omit names as one is a mod/former mod:
When you look at record and ignore circumstances, you again prove what a dumbass you are, dahblue.
a complete dick
How tiny is your penis?
So, I really don't mean to bitch about points. I know that's a big no-no, but I do mean to bitch about hypocrisy. If I lost the points for that reason; why no one else? And where's the quote were I levied the terrible insults? I love the content on this site, but the hypocrisy on this one is a bit much.
I'm negbombing as I find them. There's A LOT of threads and I'm just catching comments here and there. When I find the penis one (which I'm searching right now), they will lose many more points than you did.
While I appreciate the effort to even out the bombs, could you please quote where I levied these terrible insults today? I think you'll find that I wasn't calling the names but instead was quoting the names screamed by RR supporters to anyone they disagree with. I'm not sure how quoting people's insults of me (or others) is name-calling.
In general, it's an odd thing as the insults I received today seem to be the norm here on MGoBlog and I get the neg bomb? I won't quote them again as I don't feel like rocking it negative, but if you're trying to be even-handed, you've got weeks (months? years?) of work ahead of you...and maybe a reversal of a mistake.
My way of moderating is go down long threads, look for a long string of replies, then look for people who were negged or pos'd in large amounts. If either said something that was ad hominem or insulting, I throw them a -1000 bomb. Unless it's an obvious joke, of course.
It's not the best filter, but it's generally effective as a warning system. Like you said, otherwise I'd have way too much work to do.
I'm not sure which CC thread the particular one you received yours for, but I'd bet it was somewhere in the CC: for pro-RR camp thread. There were about 7 or 8 tossed in there.
Again, I appreciate the response, but I think you likely didn't quote me because there is no quote to prove your allegation. Any quote would prove the opposite. Why not just say, "Oops, I didn't notice that you were quoting someone else"?
A former mod can call me a "dick" and tell me to "STFU" (one of the most common 'phrases' on the blog), and then I somehow get neg bombed by you??? How is that right? If your goal was to create a "warning system", your action had the opposite impact. LIke I said, we all make mistakes and I can understand if, in skimming tons of posts, you didn't notice that I was quoting others to show how angry their rhetoric has been.
You negged 80% of my points for quoting a mod insulting me (which is why a flat neg of 1000 is ridiculous even if the neg were warranted) and haven't produced my "offending" quote that warranted the 80% neg. That same -1000 penalty would have cost you only 4%. Losing the points is kinda annoying. Losing the points for quoting someone else insulting me is really annoying. Entirely disproportionate reactions based on previously existing points is just wrong. Yeah, I know..."don't complain about points"...So, maybe consider this a complaint about punishment not fitting the alleged crime and a request for you to fix your mistake. Thanks.
You're still not over that?
I'm dwelling for sure.
I'm a big fan of fundamental fairness, so when I quote a (former) mod insulting me and get negged 80% of my points by a current mod (who posted a viewpoint contrary to mine in the same thread), it just isn't right and smacks of censorship rather than moderation. I'll be over it soon, but it doesn't speak well of the MGoBubble.
If you are easily offended, don't click here. Otherwise, have a laugh.
Go Brady! Go Blue!
Answered my question
Can you take care of
RUKiddin MEEEEEEEE already?
-meant for Mod thread. My apologies
Is anybody else losing points to expiration at a rapid rate? I've lost about 100 points in the last few weeks due to it. I'm not one who measures himself by his point total. My thing is if it keeps up at this rate I could end up inthe neg without actually having people neg me. Then Brian is alerted that you are in the neg I'd feel like I'd be summoned to the principal's office without doing anything wrong.
I know the great meltdown will require some time for full site recovery, but any idea when the "new" button might reappear?
Yeah, I agree on that one. It takes a lot longer to read the site when you don't know which comments are new.
I got shitnegged before for asking this but I'm only asking because I don't know and I only need to be told once and then I never need to ask again. Can someone please explain what the deal is with points expiring, what does that mean and why do they expire? Also, why is the point system currently not working is it just a problem with the site right now? Thanks.

It means 365 days have passed since the points were acquired/lost, so they expire and we have to get rid of them. If we keep them around they might gain sentience and go all Skynet on us (it also saves on database space).
Also, why is the point system currently not working is it just a problem with the site right now? Thanks.
Yes, there is coding that needs to happen on the backend in order to make the point system 100% functional.
I may get negative feedback again for asking this, but I don't see it in your descriptions. How do I up my karma rating? I automatically start at zero now and I don't even know what I did?
So far no luck getting info from anyone, but I'm hoping there is a way to order the threads newest-to-oldest (as was previously the case). Is it possible to change that setting? Thanks.
keeps giving me this error message when trying to add a picture
And not embedding a picture, for reasons I cannot explain, I've read from other posters that putting in new ones is down now (and even if you take your own out, you wouldn't be able to put it back in. That's what she said).
Cool, thanks man
Is there a reason for this? Will it ever be back up?
It had something to do with the great site crash of 2011. If it's back up, ever, I would think that the off-season would be the earliest, and is on the to do list, but won't get a whiff with as busy as football season is...and may wait till post hockey/basketball.
Anybody know why Fitz did not play?
For some reason, my last few posts have started out with a "Score:2". Just curious if there's a reason for this because I swear I'm not pos-banging myself (not that Score:# really even makes a difference)
what the heck is going on?
let my posts be visible dude! been on 0 karma for couple of weeks now.. just posting that I can watch the game on espn3.com?
When I click on the hyperlink for "helpful primer on basic HTML" I get "Page not found". Can this be fixed? Thanks!
when the board went to rich text editor.
You can use html by using the "Switch to plain text editor" button below.
You can find the text of "Shockfx"'s 2009-era html post in "Raoul"'s comment on the thread here, or follow the link in that comment and see it with all the comments (many informative) here ("Google cache feature," per "Raoul"). I have no idea how he dug it up.
Now, can someone tell me what are "Karma" points and should I want more of them?
FYI, the link for how to embed videos, pictures, etc is broken on this FAQ.
good to know brooo
Answer: Kyle Kalis (left) and Matt Godin (right) on a hog (moped).
I am looking for two (2) tickets for the U-M Tailgate party for the Cowboys Classic 2012 game in Dallas. If anyone has tickets they would like to sell please contact me via e-mail.
So what does the score above our post mean? How do you get it to go up to 4 or 5? Is there any other things that happen if you get more MgoBlue points?
The score above your posts reflects how everyone feels about them. -1 is the lowest the score goes, +5 is the highest. All scores have an adjective attached, but just know that people can be completely arbitrary. We pride ourselves on being logical and informed, but there will be times you need a thick skin to post anything (there is a Sonic not far from Ohio Stadium, Urban Meyer has MNC rings, whatever) with your avatar and username, because someone will neg them no matter the content. OTOH there are several MSU and OSU fans here that get great receptions, though those are earned based on reputation (WatersDemos is a great MSU poster, I think UrbanWarfare and BucksfanXC do a good job from OSU).
When you get 100 MGoPoints, you are allowed to post original topics and "moderate" or vote on posts; the top left of your screen will change with that option. At 500, you can edit the MGoHallOfFame*, two-deep and offer list. Other than that, the purpose of points these days is just to identify who posts a lot.
Check out this link here: http://mgoblog.com/diaries/meta-info-new-mgoboarders and go ahead and post any new questions on this thread. I've been meaning to tell you that you're a good poster here (considering you're a Buckeye.../s) and would be happy to answer anything you want to know about the site. Cheers.
*I don't know how much of it you might think is funny, but the MGoHallofFame is amazing. The humor section is worth spending the time to read, trust me.
Not sure why it won't let me reply back to you directly below...
Anyway, I try to be as knowledgeable and objective to Michigan fans when I make post so that they contribute to the conversation. I know some Michigan fans will bash me because I'm an OSU guy but its ok, I've been treated way worse my Wisconsin fans in Madison and online. Thanks for being respectful even thought I'm an OSU fan and answering my questions...
The link you gave me had everything I wanted but if you know how to edit your post after you post them that would be great. Also, I like the point system you guys have here. Elevenwarriors just started one a week ago that works similar to what you guys have. I need to get to 100 points before the Michigan game so I can ask you guys some questions on my own post.
Good luck vs. Purdue.
glad to help. Hit "edit" on the bottom right corner of your posts. This thread seems like something is wrong. I keep getting logged out and I can't vote on your post. Seems like a computer issue that's over my head.
I'm not sure if anyone went to THE GAME or to campus bars but I wanted to hear how everyone experiences went. I don't want to rub anyone the wrong way since we are rivals but I like to hear what people think. I don't have enough MgoBlog points to start a thread. Could someone start one.
You recently created this topic and I have no way to personally message you so I'm hoping you come across this. Go back to the topic you started and check for my feedback. I recently left you something that might be worthwhile to improving the site for visitors experience. Disregard this if you've already read it but it got buried below all the other new topics.
Thanks for putting the time in, especially considering [maize and blue site + heathen Buckeye joke here]. I'm trying to make a final decision and get whatever that is written and up on the site; the goal is Monday morning, maybe Tuesday or Wednesday if I end up needing some HTML help.
Right now, I'm not sure how to handle a lot of your suggestions, but I will forward that post to Seth (he's the site editor) and see if he wants to impliment anything you suggested. The issue with making a lot of those recommendations to me is the limited scope of things I can do. I can get new stickys up or edit threads or adjust points, but I don't have much more input into the sites construction than anyone else with a good idea. For you personally, you have the points to create threads/diaries now, and pretty much everything you wrote out would be a fine forum topic and would get good answers.
Oh, I almost forgot. This piece basically tore the site apart with like a dozen debate threads on the qualities of a good deli and where the best place to go after having too much to drink the night before (and where to drink too much the night before), but it is pretty much exactly what you were talking about as far as an Ann Arbor guide.
Well that link you gave me will serve perfectly for helping to plan my trip up to Ann Arbor. I'll bookmark it and save it under my favorites. Sorry to hear it created ripples among MgoBlog users but it seems informative to me. Hope my suggestions help in some way. Thanks!
Just out of curiosity, are you coming up for the basketball game or waiting until football season? I selfishly have another Ann Arbor café for you to take a look at whenever you start planning your trip.
