If bustin98 wants, I may make him a coder.
« on: August 05, 2006, 02:38:49 PM »
Inty may have fallen off the face of the earth for all I know at this point.



I wish he hadn't made those text ads so small before leaving for so long.  And why - after all those times that I told him they needed to be big and bold?  Sheesh.



And other fixes too, that he said were easy - they probably are easy for someone who knows PHP - but why'd he have to disappear like that?



If bustin98 wants, I will give him access to whatever he needs to be an admin/coder and hopefully get some of those persistent irks out of here.



As for Inty, I dunno.  He hasn't answered my PMs or emails.  And how long has it been?  A month or two or more?

It's about time you got over Inty. He's a pretty lousy admin.

I'm kind of a new comer, so I haven't said anything about it, but I guess there's a reason you aren't using a pre-scripted forum such as phpbb?

It is pre-scripted, but Inty made some changes to 'make it easier' for him.



I have no problem with taking care of some things that need to happen.

I don't think text ads even work on my computer.  Why do you need to make them big?

It's part of the contract, so I don't think I like that being in the hands of the coder.



When I get bustin98 set up, I'll have him change the ads to be an inline frame of the other ads I have up everywhere else on the site - meaning that I'll have direct control over them without having to rely on anybody else.



Though all I'm asking from bustin98 is to fix the little irksome things here and there, and then I probably won't call on him too much.  It's not like it's a full-time job...

What contract?  There's a contract that says ads have to be big?

bustin98 has now been upgraded to an admin and given the access he needs to fix this place up.

Cool! Now let's see him work up some magic!

Hello, bustin98 here. I get an error message when I try to log in as bustin98:

WTF.  Okay, looks like I have to do some work.



Okay, bustin98, I brought you down to Level 18, but you have the info you need to access the files.  Perhaps then you can find out how to properly set youself up as an admin.
