I just wanted to say that it is so awesome to have a website like IIN to discuss issues and have the freedom to do so as we choose. We should thank the owner of this website for providing this for us to enjoy. Thanks Udi your great!!!

Is Udi still the owner? I noticed that a couple of popular IIN members (SG and SJ) had all of their posts and comments deleted in their profiles but they're still members. Are they monitors? Thanks!

Yes I am Quadmaster. I created this account because when the website first came back online I was unable to get my login information for Gizzie56, I emailed the server about the problem, and he sent me this information via email.

Udi is owner and creator of this website. When you send feedback to the server you are writing to Udi and if you are very lucky and I mean LUCKY you might get a response to your questions.

Thanks and glad to hear from you again! This is a wonderful website and I'm glad that there's at least some type of moderation going on. Otherwise, there's no telling what may happen. Thanks for accepting new posts and comments.

Well, if you are indeed the 'moderator', then yes, it IS good that you are going to be more 'pro active'. My only concern is, for how long? You let this place go to rack and ruin previously and it took a lawsuit to get your ass into gear!
Is this stil and adult site? If so, how come one of the first post my curser ran over showed "I am 13 and my b/f......"????? THAT is something you do need to get to grips with. Either it IS an adult site and these posts should be deleted along with the posters or it isn't and we all know where we stand! The fact is, with underaged CHILDREN on board, we all have to be more careful of our responses. It is hardly fair to the adults to find themselves in threat of prosecution for answering what they thought was a post on an adult site because the owner allows juveniles to use it!!!

@: nearly
No new posts by underage users are going up. In fact, such users are being banned immediately for violating this very clear part of the TOS.

What you may have seen was an old post by a young person. My staff and I are going through all the old posts and moderating them as well but it is going to take some time as there are 20,000 items to read and moderate.

Thanks

This is the first story ever posted on IIN so by looking at the date you will be able to see when the website got started.
Comment Hidden (show)

Yes, since 2004. It took a few months for the site to start to gain a bit of traction.

We think that if we clean it up and keep all the submissions on topic, then the site has the potential to be much more interesting, popular and helpful.

What do you all think would be the best way to keep the amount of off topic chatter at a minimum? Perhaps an ancillary forum for off topic conversations?
Comment Hidden (show)
-
Yes I agree Udi. And also why did you remove the chatroom?
Comment Hidden (show)
gizzie56
I honestly think you should leave it the way it is, I know that the poster of any given story on IIN will get a lot of responses to his/her questions. In between time you will have a certain amount of "chat" but I don't see why that is a problem.

I think the site has always been "interesting,popular and helpful". I think if you change it and not allow us to discuss issues on the board it will become a lot less popular. The one thing that makes this site stand out is the freedom allotted to us.
Comment Hidden (show)

That sounds like a wonderful idea. Maybe we could have a forum for off topic conversations and a forum for conversations regarding IIN? That would make it easier for IIN staff and its members to exchange ideas (compliments, complaints, suggestions, et cetera) about the website.
Comment Hidden (show)
-
Yes, I also think the extra off topic forum might help quite a bit.

To answer the earlier question of, "are you going to delete us if we keep arguing and insulting each other?". YES. I will be forced to. Please keep it strictly on topic until we can develop another outlet for that stuff like the other forum idea.

User moderation could work, but it's quite tricky to get all the incentives and safeguards right so that no one abuses the system. We may go down that road but not in the very near future.

What if you all had the ability to send private messages to one another? Would that help?

Also, please keep in mind that any such changes will take a little while to implement, so I appreciate your patience while we all figure out the right course of action. You went a few months without this site, so hopefully you can give it a few more weeks to get settled.

Thanks.

The main thing I think is blocking this site from schools. You need mods in different countries to moniter site while yous are asleep
Why do I always have 1 abusive flag. Ive said it before the flag system is an uneccesary load of shit it should be removed and the chatroom put back thankyou
Comment Hidden (show)

I recalled an earlier thread calling for moderators. Udi said that he doesn't have the funds to hire full time moderators. But quite alot of us agreed that why not have user based moderators who be willing to do it for free.

Most forums do this and I don't see a reason why IIN shouldn't.

i liked the chatroom to but the flags are one big joke remember when crhis-ufc got 4000 abusive flag and we basicly celebrated it so we need a better system becues right now it sucks big time and manegment still suck and will never listen to us
Comment Hidden (show)
its never going to get popular if it takes 3 months for a post to get on or even 10 hours you could have the problem solved your a big joke and you don't give a rats ass as long as ebay keeps paying you just a question how many website do you manageme and are they all this crapey and managing unaged post load of crap you just put up the first 2 on the list your management skills suck a cracked up retarded could do your job fix within 1 week or am pertty sure everyone will laeve

Its good to have this site back but why no chat and why do I always have 1 abusive flag when I havent abused anyone. I think someone could have advised us the site was back up and running
Comment Hidden (show)

Hey Cabinet, nice to see you still roam around these woods.

Anyhoo here's my 2 cents - I think the fact Udi didn't advised us was due to attacting the trolls back - I think only the members who was willing to contribute something to this site would continue to check if the forum was up and running.

Every once in a while "lotsofjunk (15110)" switches to "lotsof*** (15110)". After clicking on "lotsof*** (15110)", the next page at http://isitnormal.com/people/lotsof%%2A%%2A%%2A/ says "Profile Not Found". It switches back and forth for some reason.

I've fixed the problem with your username. Shouldn't be ***'d out anymore.

Maybe you're not seeing the same thing that I'm seeing because you're logged in to your account. Try logging out and see if three asterisks appear in place of "junk" in your username. Your user number will remain the same.

When it switches from the three asterisks back to "junk", even the text that I entered in the comment box switches from the three asterisks back to "junk". So maybe you were looking at my comment after it switched back to the normal view. Just wait a little bit and it may switch again.

Your profile page is still there at http://isitnormal.com/people/lotsofjunk/ whether or not the link to your profile page works. It looks like the IIN computer thinks that "junk" is a forbidden work like the F word. If you type in the F work then asterisks will appear.

If the problem continues, then just let Udi know in the Feedback section at http://isitnormal.com/feedback.php. He can probably fix it for you.

Yes, unfortunately you have to create a new account on the forum. It's just a one time thing and doesn't take long. I'm going to work on integrated accounts in the future, but I can't do that at the moment.

The forum is meant to be a complement to this site, not a replacement. It's a place where you can talk about whatever you want, IIN related or not, and just hang out.

I'm just glad it is back.

Moderated is okay I guess, everybody here, INCLUDING Moi, fucked about a little, and moderation helps. The thing is, why moderate the posts (the original ones) when racist sacks of crap like Homer are allowed to post their vileness in every REPLY they make - on the topic or not.

I am going to try the forum, it seems a shame to let any of my wisdom go to waste, but I just like being back.
