You asked for it.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!
I am thankful for my family, friends (including the ones I have made on ID) and health.
I also gave today at the red cross by donating some blood
HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GOOD HOLIDAY!!
Thank you, I hope it was a day filled with making new wonderful memories.
Hey Griz maybe you can answer a question for me…
Today my rep points dropped from 101 to 99 and I do not see why… I dont have any posts that are getting TD'ed a ton… I thought you might know why it changes…
I looked over the last couple weeks worth of comments and see no reason for the drop. i wonder if there was a recalculation.
I dont know… it happened today. The only thing that I could think of is that one of the blogs that I usually haunt dropped ID and use a different commenting system. Do you think that would make a difference?
This happened to me, too! I dropped from 95 to 85 for no reason at all. I didn't get kicked off for anything and the approval numbers on my posts are still good. What happened?
I dont know… I tried looking for a 'contact' and went through ID's FAQs but found nothing. Wow, you lost 10 points! and I was getting all bent out of shape over three points. 😀 Did yours happen yesterday? that is when it happened for me.
I have never had a decrease in my rep score since I opened this account. I was the second person to roll to 100, it took a lot of reconfiguring on ID's part, during the process it would go from 99 to 0. They fixed that issue. Once you reach 100, it's no longer about thumbs up or down. I could get 100 down thumbs and not lose a point. I could get 100 up and not gain. It's about quantity. It takes around 3000 comments for me to move up now. And that needs to happen within a relatively short period of time. You can lose points, if you delete comments from your history. Not sure if you guys have done that or not.
Well, I have never deleted any of my comments… edited but never deleted them. I have slowed down somewhat in the amount of comments I make a week, being busy and all during school and sometimes I just don't have anything to say or add to a conversation.
Do you know who to contact or ask about it? Like I said, I looked on their site and FAQs but didn't find anything useful.
There's a spot to contact them, but it takes weeks to get a response. They have outgrown themselves. You'll get back a canned comment that says all is in order, keep posting and enjoy.
I kind of got that feeling by how 'messy' their blogs and pages have become. Sounds like they need to get more people to help
THAT explains how my personal fav, the Chiefster in Chief, retains his 104 score while blathering his idiocy. It's definitely an eye-opening day for me!!
You're too cute, Grammy. ; )
Mine happened yesterday. Lost 10 points in one day. But what Lips said about reaching 100 makes a lot of sense. I see people with 105 points but they've posted about 3 or 4 THOUSAND posts. Maybe that's where we are headed now. Once you go over 100, it just about quantity. Sad, really. Thought it was about what you said, not how much you say.
I agree. Additionally, they recently changed the system to where new users that receive high thumbs up on beginning posts, can shoot to over 100 in ten posts or less. That is not how it used to be. Personally, I don't pay much notice to the rep scores. If I like a persons commenting style, if I enjoy engaging with them, and especially if I like debating with them, that holds a much higher interest for me. But, the scoring, the rep score, and the ability to receive response notifications is what hooks people to ID.
"can shoot to over 100 in ten posts or less." ~ I wondered about that, it took me a year to get to 100 and 2000 comments. I do find myself looking for TU/TDs on other boards that I go to that do not have ID.
Today I had a customer tell me that he saw me on the news last night! Last spring channel 12 came to my work and did some shooting for a story they were going to do on the distribution issues we were having. They called up and asked if they could come in and film and they said yes. When they showed up everyone else conveniently had some other task to do in the stock room or office so the guy filmed me stocking the shelves and opening boxes. I guess they used it for the story they have been talking about how they are still trying to privatize.
I looked on kptv's web site and they don't have it on there 🙁 but if any of you saw it, that was me!
Hello, anyone home? Its been real quiet in here lately…
Well I just started a new quarter at school
We got our tree and I let the little ones decorate it so you know all the ornaments are in one spot… but it still looks great
soooo… how is everyone else doing so far in the holiday bussle and hub bub?
You're a good mom, Dandy. I have seen plenty of moms that would never let their kids do the tree. It just wouldn't be perfect enough. Bah! It's nice to see one that understands it's a celebration, not a decorating contest.
I have not bought a single gift, yet. My grandiose plan is to do it all this weekend. Wish me luck.
We plan on doing our shopping this weekend too! We just might bump into each other. It was perfect… Child Support must have shook down my ex because I got a big chunk of what he owed for back support.. so after paying up the bills and getting necessities I will have enough left over for the kids… yay!!
this weekend we will be making homemade ornaments …. the glitter, glue, paint and oohh the mess 😀 but its fun… even grandpa gets into it
How did the decorating go?
We were pretty slammed hunting down the family gift.
Of course it was a gift of the year and NOT easy to get in North America.
We do salt dough ornaments (got them made) but we put the glitter, glue and chaos off til tonight… My husband and the five year old got sick and I did not want to be in close proximity to either one for an extended time.
We too have been trying to wrap up the shopping for the boys… my oldest wants an xbox of course and I am having a real hard time with the prices… I just do not want to spend 300 dollars on one item….
Anyone going to try to watch the lunar eclipse tonight? (if it clears up enough)
🙁 it was too cloudy and rainy here to watch the lunar eclipse…
I forgot all about it,,,, slept right through it..
I couldn't sleep because I have been sick (bronchitis again) and when I went out side to look it was all cloudy and rainy… I could barely see the moon through the clouds.. but didn't stay out to see if it would clear up because of me being sick.
I decided that sleep was more important. I have seen total lunar and solar eclipses.
If you EVER have the opportunity, watch a solar eclipse from the air.
I got to do that in 79. We were over Goldendale and watched the shadow sweep over the land, then a few minutes later the light recaptured what was lost. it was a fantastic experience.
Happy New Year to all !! Hope everyone had a good night. We had a quiet night as I am still nursing my cold and Geoff fell asleep before 12 😀
"Hey! This is the bottom of the page… nothing interesting down here. But since you bent this far over, I can see down your shirt."
LMAO – That's funny!!!
I am just checking on something here
Well, KATU hasn't gotten back to me yet and my comments have not appeared. How long does it take?
Sometimes it takes a couple of days.
Those of us who are massive posters, get faster response I think.
yeah, I figured it would take a while and with the weekend. When they ban someone do they inform the person and why?
I have only been banned once (maybe twice).
They did not tell me that I was banned.
My posts were deleted as I submitted them.
I think this banning thing is a waste of time. I was banned by a long time ago but quickly found that the ban was on one site only. To prevent this from happening again I set up several accounts that are used on other sites infrequently but enough to keep them active, but if I get banned on one I have others. Remember how many of us got banned by the unsucessful council candidates actions!!!!
Has everyone died, on a long sleep or lost interest here. With all of the things going on in the media recently I would have thought that all would be banging away on the keyboard….
KNOCK KNOCK anyone home!!!!!!!!
Well, what did you have in mind?
I have added some pages to the legislation topic. I do need to add my own text to it, not just what I stole from NumbersUSA.
I know that a few of us are still active. We chat on weekdays on pissedoffpirate.com/chat and I see posts from most of us as well.
I am always watching for items of interest to set my mind to spinning and fingers flying.
There is a seat open on the Gresham City Council and they are asking for people to apply.
I noticed a shabby person hitchhiking along I-5 near Salem holding a sign saying he was headed to Gresham.
Could it be??????
Hey Grizzy …. I'm trying to catch up when I can!! My work computers have been plagued by some nefarious virus that I'm quite convinced wasn't from anything I did, but I'm nervous about being "watched" …. last month my home computer suddenly found itself in a smoke-free zone, and well, it's just not as much fun when I can't chain-smoke and sip wine and post. Plus Lips has vanished for no particular reason. Really, she has no excuse. Or perhaps a lame one, like the one she used when she told me that she couldn't hang out tonight. =P
Hahahaha! Don't be mean, badkitty. I'm currently under house arrest. And my jailer has equipped me with gps tracking technology. =( I'm watching re-runs of Prison Break, and developing a plan, though. Oh, I just finished watching the Burning Bed, too, so I may have to consider that.
Guess grizz deleted my response, as it did contain incriminating info. Anyway, you know the gist of it.
You know that I can be touchy over deleting comments.
I clean up from time to time, but I haven't deleted any old comments for a while, and NOTHING recently dear lady.
I was just being a bitch. Didn't mean it towards you, old friend. There is something up with ID, on all the sites. Some of my posts take a day to post, some post instantly.
I had the same thing last week, one day none of my posts showed up on KATU and then next day one showed up and then I was able to post again
It's still there, murder plan and all!
Only if taken literally. 😉
Ah man, I bought a shovel for nuthin. =)
For nuthin? You're my best friend, a shovel is essential for maintaining a healthy relationship with me, you know that. LOL!
I am just glad that you decided to grace the pages of POP.
Even if it is a flyby visit.
Will we be seeing you swing in a little more often?
I'll try to swing by more often … no promises, but I'll try! xxoo
Having been sick for over a month I couldn't sit that the computer for too long and just did the bare minimum
I want to announce that tomorrow is possibly the most unusual anniversary I've ever had — I will have been in a committed relationship with my lover for exactly half my life. We pledged our undying love on Valentine's Day 1993, and tomorrow that will have been half my life ago. I think that's pretty fuckin cool, and I still love my man with all my heart!! Cheers!!
That's awesome. Happy unusual anniversary B&C! What a perfect match you guys are. Have a great day, and I'll see you tonight!
P.S. I have something special for you =) A romantic night for two, in Lincoln City, at the Starfish Manor. http://www.onthebeachfront.com. I'll give you your paperwork tonight! Of course I want to come… Just kidding, I'll take a youtube instead.
WOW!! That's awesome — thank you!! Can't wait to discuss that with you tonight!!
oi! it was a long day… I am glad I am finally home!
hum de dum dum….
made me think of our Furbies…
