DEAR VISCOUSMEMORIES,

I didn't want to have to do this. I have tried other methods.

As you, a forum owner, are no doubt aware, new legislation, SESTA-FOSTA, was recently passed that affects your liabilities as a site owner. The long held safe harbors of CDA 230 are still largely intact, at least for now, but an exemption recently been carved out for human trafficking, which means that you as forum owner can be held legally responsible for any human trafficking that occurs on :fflove:.

I present this ultimatum with a heavy heart.

If you do not come back here within one week and start letting us go through the new user registrations, I am going to sell Matlock right here on your discussion forum.

To reiterate: Monday, August 13, I am going to try to sell Matlock here on the Freethought Forum. I haven't decided whether I'll have a firm asking price or take bids, and I am not going to commit to a specific time, but unless you, vm, come back here to this thread to stop me before August 13, I am going to human traffic on your board.

Love,
Your friend Lisa Pea.

Clearly, no one is going to outbid Crumb, so we may as well amend the ultimatum to read, "To reiterate: Monday, August 13, I am going to sell Matlock here on the Freethought Forum to Crumb for $1 plus shipping."

IT IS NOT TIME YET.

This is currently an ultimatum, not an auction, so don't get your hopes up quite yet.

PS I got dog cookies today, so you don't need to stop at the store.

Pfu it is not much of a threat if you don't sell it properly.

I guess you could get away with claiming "one careful previous owner". We know there was some issue with the fuel pump at one stage, but that seems to have been fixed by a certified mechanic with parts from the manufacturer. Bit of mileage on the clock though.

I also deduce he gets on well with other pets. I am going to assume he is pretty well housetrained. We won't mention the leg-humping.

That'd be outright fraud. Two prior owners, both reckless as fuck.

And with a brand spankin' new pump regulator and 14-year battery, the repairs will likely outlast the original equipment at this point.

Is not possible. At capitalist property law and at oligarch Russian law, Comrade Maturin not for sale. Already owned by Russian Gang.

I'm here just in time! :muahaha:

Last time, on What Fuck VM Do Something:

Our hero performed a full backup of the site code and database while digging into the existing options of sharing management responsibilities, and--upon finding out that those options are limited--unsuccessfully surfing the web in search of a skilled vB expert to perform an upgrade so he wouldn't have to do that work himself.

Then, shiny!

So anyway, I think the easiest solution is to make some zealous trusted individuals moderators, and I'm thinking some combination of lisapea, crumb, joep, and bort.

Thoughts?

Ah yes.

Ok so permissions in vB are funky, so I couldn't grant just the ability to moderate users without a plugin and I didn't feel like installing a plugin, so instead I made y'all administrators with limited powers. I think that's all (and probably a little more than) you need but let me know if you have any issues.

User moderation queue can be found under "acp>moderation>moderate users"

Yeah I really need to fix that one of these days. Maybe today?

ETA: yeesh, in five days it will have been exactly one year since that cert expired. :blush:

ETA: these new admin powers allow these new so-called admins to edit anyone's post. I'm sure they will use this power sparingly and wisely.

ETA (for reals): Oddly enough, the silliness in the line preceding this one made it impossible for me to 'thanks' this post.

ETA again: hahaha i'm dumb... i can't 'thanks' it because it's my own post!

So what are our criteria for evaluating these new users? Just no one named p3n1sEx7end3r5?

Do I delete the ones I reject?
