The New CoasterBuzz

It's not really a popularity contest, it's more for fun. I think it will, over time, show some degree of tenure. The actual awards even more so (once I eliminate the dupes). I mean, you already have two awards!

I feel like a real doofus even saying this, but I've hesitated contributing news before because I'm not sure I'm doing it correctly. The headline and summary are obvious, but for the "main text," do you want an entire copy and paste of the article, or just a link to it?

I have always just put the article link for the main text.

Yeah, a link is fine.

I still haven't got to news yet today. Busy working up an "exclusive" interview. :)

Welcome to the story of my life.

I exist on the fringe. I make tangible, but unquantifiable, contributions everywhere I go. No one will recognize or remember me, but my impact will be felt by many.

I'm a loner, Dottie. A rebel.

Sound's like it's time for you to cash in all those +1's you've gotten over the years. :)

Also, will the graphic smileys return?

EDIT: What happened to the emoticon?

I think he's ignoring us. Do I have to mention the 14-acre PutzLand themed area at Six Flags America honoring his famed ride halfway up Superman's lift?

Edit: I'd add a winky face to this, but it doesn't work.

The graphic emoticons... yeah. Here's the thing... after 12+ years and about five variations on how they were created and stored, I scrubbed them out of all the hundreds of thousands of posts. I have a work item on my backlog to reinstitute them, client side, eventually. It's not a high priority.

The idea was that I wanted to show you a big photo, but I also want you to scroll down and see what's up. Does that make sense?

The first time that I visited the new site, I took a few seconds to look at the picture. Then everything moved up and I went to interact with the rest of the page. After visiting the site several times, I may look at the "forum topics" box first. Right as I get ready to click on a topic, it starts moving. But, as I said, its not a big deal.

Whatever, dude. I'm going to devote an entire chapter of my memoir to Gonch and his profound and yet understated influence on my internet existance... and the best you can do is give 100 "virtual" points in exchange for his greatness? (Imagine there's an emoticon here and it's judging you...)

(Just kidding and stuff.)

I love it, it's great! And I made the top twenty! Ha!

Only bug I've found so far (if it is a bug?) is that the podcast link on the right menu points to http://postcast.coasterbuzz.com/

Rick.


Nothing to see here. Move along.

Fixed that. My lysdexia gets the best of me when I type.

I like it... If it counts for anything, I have not posted in a very long time and CB has once again crossed my radar and I am back, for the time being at least.

Like the 500 and 1000 post awards, but waiting for the 5000 and 10,000 post awards to show up. Also waiting for the 1 year, 5 year and 10 year member awards.

And I expect the Lord Gonchar Is Great points to regenerate automatically on a weekly basis.

Other than that, everything seems fine.


kpjb's avatar

Do I get 100 points if I agree that Lord Gonchar is great?

Not saying I would... just want to know what's in it for me.


Hi

I hope I can explain this with rambling on too long.

If I click News, an article, then the park name under Related Park, the park page appears fine.

But if I click Forums, News Discussion, the same article as before, then the park name under Related Park, I get a 404 error.

Is it just me?

Jeff's avatar

Nope, that's a good find. I fixed it.

Wow, that was fast! Good work.
