AND, now you're repeating yourself.

;-)

I am still able to see many postings, just before midnight here, tonight, but don't know about yours, specifically.

I'm guessing tomorrow may be a different story again.

In the individual boards, the messages still seem to exist, but for some reason, the Main Message Board page seems to be affected.

Interesting times, and helps us to better appreciate TMP when it does indeed work well, I suspect.

Perhaps it is time to bite the bullet Bill and change to another format entirely?

No disrespect, and I know I couldn't do it, but perhaps revamping the original structure of TMP is too much weight for it to carry?

You might lose some functions, you might lose the old posts, but at a the moment the current problems are making front end access to those things unattractive at best and must be costing new visitors at least. Having a great past is no help now if people can't access it.

Thought the attempt at a rebuild was worth it myself but if it doesn't work time for hard decisions.

I want to see TMP flourish, but currently the problems seem to be multiplying. Any of those other avenues you explored look 'nearly' right? If so go for them.
All the best.

While I cannot confirm it, I have heard that John Treadaway lost his posting,

On the front page. The ones he did yesterday………….

Lucius01 Feb 2017 4:37 a.m. PST

He's just making up for the postings that he lost.😀

<While I cannot confirm it, I have heard that John Treadaway lost his posting,

With all due respect until we receive further clarification from the author himself we shouldn't repeatedly spread rumours that John Treadaway has lost the postings on the front page. The ones he did yesterday that allegedly all vanished from the front page and are also gone from their own section.

Repeatedly making these statements that John Treadaway has from the front page lost certain postings on the front page (the ones he did yesterday) help only to spread what mounts to little more than idle gossip.

Extrabio1947 Supporting Member of TMP01 Feb 2017 6:36 a.m. PST

Alternate facts, people. It's all just alternate facts. However, there is a rumor that John is launching an investigation to prove he lost more posts than ACWBill.

This is terrible news!

Bill, I'm going to stop posting until you fix this problem. More of me is less!

John did you lose any postings from the front page yesterday, I haven't seen any from you?

We are living in a post-posting age.

Personal logo Weasel Supporting Member of TMP01 Feb 2017 8:20 a.m. PST

We're going to have the most tremendous posts, they're going to be huge.

We're going to have so many posts, you're going to be saying "man, I wish we had less posts".

It'll be great.

sjwalker38 Supporting Member of TMP01 Feb 2017 8:45 a.m. PST

"It'll be great…"

And, what's more, Frothers are going to pay for those posts, you'd better believe it.

Yeah, I can see it now…TMP is going to be "Bigly!"…as soon as we build a wall to prevent the Bug coming in and those exceedingly rare John Treadaway posts from escaping!

And we're going to make Frother's pay for it too!

Time to hire someone who is familiar with coding standards post-1997?

The posts I made yesterday afternoon (4 of them to do with asking if clubs would like to appear in the Club Spot of Miniature Wargames ALL disappeared from the front page.

Three of them remain in their respective areas (one has vanished entirely) but three are still there but not on the front page. This is the original ppsting
TMP link
Like I said, it's still there but not on the front page.


Oh and for some reason that post appeared er…. more than once.

As you saw!

It does make this forum much much less useful than it was to, I have to say.

But I didn't want to say it seven times!

John T

Edit: as you can see, the 7 postings (including this one) are not repeats, they are CLONES (the post count on them all is identical)

Ah. Seven posts all in a row. Building a fence,
are you ?

zoneofcontrol01 Feb 2017 11:11 a.m. PST

We have to post the posts first to see what is in the posts.

sjwalker38 Supporting Member of TMP01 Feb 2017 11:11 a.m. PST

Hey John, going to do a 'hobby news' article about this in the next issue of MW?

Does it all make you more or less likely to advertise here, and/or recommend the site to your readers?

And while you're at it, why not do a 'Club Spot' featuring the regulars of TMP? It is, after all, the largest wargames 'club' in the world, albeit a virtual one, and would demonstrate how the Internet has changed our hobby.

An interesting couple of points!

Seven threads with seven posts by seven Treadways. It's a sign of the apocalypse and the beginning of the end times, I tells ya. Oh, look there's a seven headed dragon rising out of the sea with terrible majesty and there is the sickly blue demon star Wormwood with its sickly blue, toothy, sinister smile, reflecting in the churning green-teal sea below it. Look, seven great seals are sundered and seven black miracles are beheld by the uncomprehending, blank eyes of the faithful. This must be the work of dark Bill-el-zabub and the horrific Four Editors of the Apocalypse.

Well, it's been a nice run but the Day of Judgement is nigh upon us and here. I wish you all the best in your new eternity. But I have a problem. I don't want be part of any kingdom/paradise that would see fit to have me as a member! So, I guess I'm damned and will wander the wilderness amidst the rabid and frothing children of Cain, far East of Eden. Where's a good world-ending flood when you need one? Welcome to the post-Omega TMP!

Cheers.
The fallen.

Don't worry, in TMP 4.0 you'll get 8, yes that's right, 8 posts at once! (maybe more, if you are lucky)

Personal logo John Treadaway Supporting Member of TMP01 Feb 2017 12:04 p.m. PST

I am the seventh son of a seventh sun….

Oh: hang on. No I'm not…

And the posts are now back on the front page a ways down (as befits their time and date of posting.

(HIC!)--So the posts are toast?

Andrew Preziosi Supporting Member of TMP01 Feb 2017 12:51 p.m. PST

I think John Treadaway just let his mind "go Post Toastee, like a lot of my friends did".

Hafen von Schlockenberg Supporting Member of TMP01 Feb 2017 1:34 p.m. PST

John--note she's a "G-word",too--so suspicions confirmed!

War Panda01 Feb 2017 3:36 p.m. PST

So John posts about his four missing posts that post-haste explodes into seven exact posts of the original post concerning the four post facto posts.

I am running a ranchers vs farmers engagement in two weeks. As of now, it will be called "The Fence Post Apocalypse". Thanks!

Keep it de-fensive and at long Range or it'll turn into a real turkey shoot.

War Panda: it'll be Great. Will both sides have a wall? And will they both agree to not pay for each other's wall?

The key issue in the upcoming FencePost Apocalypse game will be the protection or destruction of fence infrastructure. I have a number of raid scenarios on fields and livestock from, so I might push it out to a campaign, with this as the first mile post.

War Panda03 Feb 2017 3:06 p.m. PST

The most anticipated war game event of all time: The FencePost Apocalypse means simply no hind quarters given, No neutrals in this war; no sitting on the fence; Just a battle cry "Once more unto the fence dear friends, once more…"
