« Thread started on: Jan 20th, 2007, 06:51am »

maybe i'm just being jaded/irritated/b itchy here, but what's the difference between this board and the one that i had set up for GS's usage a few years back? Set up is basically the same. Some liked it, some didn't. Is it because a slave set it up?

Master Lemuel, Master Rollo, i apologize to you both for my *tone* of post here. But my psychologist did tell me to stop holding so much back or the stress would kill me. cry and now with that I'll shut up. lipsrsealed

jasma I'm not familiar with the board you set up a few years ago or what transpired regarding it. I assume that some issue was taken with you, a slave having control of the message board. I know that back in the early days of GS a slave controlled the message board and she abused the power. That one girl left a stigma behind in the minds of people. The idea of a slave, any slave having control of the message board continues to bother them. Something similar happened with a FW in GS. That's another story but that stigma still lingers too.

This board was created by shareen. Somebody raised a question at last weeks forum regarding shareen, a slave controlling the board.

It reminds me of the story of the cat that jumps up on a hot stove and burns its paws. (I think it's from Samuel Clemens) The cat won't ever jump up on a hot stove again. But she won't ever jump up on a cold one either. I think we may have become the cat that won't jump up on the cold stove, taking too much away from a lesson learned.

I know you have contributed much to GS over the years as SG, FG and out side of those positions too. For your time and effort you have my appreciation and thanks.

Tal, greetings etc etc.

Heyya hun, well, what happened was actually this.

When someone complained to 50megs that our website contained slurs against women, and propogated hate against women, and we got shut down, it was discussed that we should have GaryM host the homepages. We talked about it, and it was also tossed in that perhaps we should have GaryM host our message boards as well, to keep everything together in one place where we knew Gary would keep us updated about everything.

So we talked to Gary. He said "Sure I can set up a board for you, and you guys can run it yourselves and make it however you want it." he also said "Sure you can have your homepages here, and you can maintain them yourselves"

As it turned out neither was true. Gary changed his mind apparently after setting it up, and in the end Rollo, and Gary are the only ones who have access to the other board's controls.

The old aimoo board that you set up for us, Joanne actually still exists..unfortunately the password was lost for a time. Lemuel couldn't remember it, Rollo couldn't remember it, and no one could figure out how to get it...until I finally did the obvious thing and had aimoo e-mail the Council email address the password.

Once I was able to log in I was able to maintain that board..but by then the one GaryM had set up for GS was already in place, and Gary himself was telling everyone to use that one.

I opposed the GS cork board that this one is apparently supposed to replace, and never did care much for it.

Also Im not exactly sure why the Council has not gone back to using the old aimoo board, as Im sure it's still there, and still works..unless someone shut it down.

In any case, it was still there about this time last year....just had that one floating ad....

but, I hope that clarifies stuff for ya, hun

Shadowglade the reason the old aimoo board was not considered is because of that annoying floating ad.

Thank you Master Xertog and Master Shadowglade for your replies. One thing after i had set up the aimoo board, all control was relinquished on my part. i sent all to Master Lemuel and in turn he changed the password, etc. just so "i" a slave did not have any control over the board. Although if things had needed changed and he needed help, i would had been happy to do so. The floating ad, for awhile was gone also because of the generosity of Master Lemuel, i believe, to do a paid account so the ad wouldn't be there.
Anyway thank you both again for responding to my question.
