New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

  • "A propaganda video by ISIS that emerged on May 17,called for a lone wolf attack on the Las Vegas Strip ".

    Jihad Watch October 2 2017 Mail on Line .

    While this video does not prove that the attack was inspired by ISIS, it gives nevertheless food for thought .

      Few other buildings close by except the Sphinx. Those sides won't play.

      • Well, distasteful as it might be, what she said isn't far from the truth.

        In general

        C&W = conservatives and white and country. That equals Trump supporters.


        Still the attack is too disgusting to put into words.

        We are a country of madmen/women.

            To tell the truth I don't blame the authorities for playing close to the vest on this one. I'm here sitting on pins and needles waiting for the copycats to come out. You know as well as I that it's only a matter of time before those a$$holes make themselves known.

              We don't need to know everything about an on going investigation.

              • Killer rented a large suite and a connecting adjacent room.

                  He took Suite 32135, one of the hotel’s “Vista” suites, which spread out over 1,700 square feet and offer floor-to-ceiling windows. “This is the perfect Las Vegas suite for those who seek the perfect views,” the hotel’s website says.

                  He brought in more than 10 suitcases during his stay, but no one saw anything amiss, the sheriff said.
                  Ten suit cases......So the bellman unknowingly carried up his weapons for him.

                  • There are so many links to this event on Drudge that I am only going to post two in response to the Progressives screaming for gun control;

                        Look at Australia. Look at the statistics.

                        • Good story on the various hospitals etc that handled the cases as the came in.

                          https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/02/u...e=sectionfront

                          Intro:

                          On Sunday night, Toni Mullan drove 110 miles an hour on side streets from home to get back to University Medical Center of Southern Nevada, where she had just worked a 12-hour shift as a clinical supervisor in the trauma resuscitation department. Her car was smoking as she pulled into a three-hour parking spot close to the trauma center. Ms. Mullan, 54, left her hazard lights blinking as she shut the car door and raced inside.
                          Around a dozen patients had already arrived from the shooting scene at a music festival on the Las Vegas Strip. Two were dead and two had been “black tagged” — fully assessed and found to have injuries that were not survivable. Ms. Mullan’s daughter, Antoinette Cannon, 29, a trauma nurse who also works at the hospital, was standing out front with a physician assistant, taking injured patients out of vehicles as they drove up to the hospital and quickly assessing whose conditions were the most precarious.

                          “The minute I got there, I looked at the situation and said ‘How am I going to utilize my resources?’ ” Ms. Mullan, a registered nurse, said in a telephone interview Monday morning. By daybreak, 104 patients had arrived.
                          “The time has come,” the Walrus said,
                          “To talk of many things:
                          Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
                          Of cabbages—and kings—
                          And why the sea is boiling hot—
                          And whether pigs have wings.”

                            look at US and Russia

                            Murder rate in US : 4,88 per 100000 inhabitants

                            Murder rate in Russia : 11,31 per 100000 inhabitants .

                            Number of fire weapons in the US per 100 inhabitants : 120

                            Number of fire weapons in Russia per 100 inhabitants : 8.9


                            Germany : murder rate : 0,8 /number of fire weapons : 30 per 100 inhabitants .More fire weapons in Germany than in Russia translates in less murders than in Russia .

                            Thus,there is NO relation between number of fire weapons and number of murders .

                            Some one who wants to kill some one with a fire weapon will always find such weapon, and if not, he will use something else .

                              I believe everyone should have the right to nuclear weapons, so I'm not the best one to ask said question.

                              But more to the point is that "mental illness" is the fluid element here. Women who were unhappy with their marriages back when divorce was unthinkable could be labeled as mentally ill back in the day, but such definitions have changed.

                              The crux of the issue is the Constitution. Bearing arms is enshrined by America, for better or for worse depending on ones perspective. That puts it up there with other elements of the bill of rights like free speech.

                              An inverse of your question would be if you would quibble if the government decided that bipolar people should not be allowed to assemble peacefully.

                              It's not the right itself I was pointing out as an issue, just that in a world where homosexuality was consider mental illness only a short time ago (and still is to many), using such nebulous reasons for removing rights is a minefield in any direction.
