sorry for tardy reply. . .
. . .as you can see, i been busy tutoring jt in some rigorous graduate courses in judicious moderatordom ;) speakin of jt, he's the one you should axe, as you can see :)
np: mazzy, "she hangs brightly"
so that's where you wuz these past couple o' days......
after having read the pi post, i have to admit that i wuz ignorant with regards to the brew ha ha that has transpired ala mr. maher's "politically incorrect" comments. (sheesh, i mean one should know what one is gettin into, as they do name the show appropriately, so why the big surprise? :rolleyes: ) i guess i jes need to watch some more tv if i'm to know what's going on. :confused: (actually, the only tv i seem to be watchin' these days is star trek related, what with enterprise and tnn running all those tng episodes)(about time i caught up on that front!:) )
i'm hoping that jt is takin' notice of the civility that does seem to run rampant here at ssg. i thought all along that it only ocured here in our lil' mm world. i'm enthused to find that it seems to branch to most other groups contained here. i found nothing objectionable or of irrational blind rage in any of the posts contained within the pi thread, and more to the point, the continuation in the dammit jt thread shows that the usual suspects here in ssg land, can and do listen to each other, and respond with well thought out expressions of what we feel and deeply believe in.
that of itself speaks volumes of the type o' people's that sw attracts! :)
vt, i did notice you refered to the filmscore monthly as a place where you used ( :confused: ) to frequent.....wazzup wit dat? you love film scores! yu love tawkin' bout filmscores, (heck i even remeber you postin' something to the effect that the only reason you had a tape recorder back in the '70's wuz to hold the condenser mike up tight to the tv speaker to record the filmscore background muzak of the james bond films being shown exclusively on abc)
i went over there and read some of you're's and others later posts (unfortuantely v.3 of the open letter no longer exisits, so's i'm assumin's that's where you drew the line and said good bye, ala your sig in your last post).
if it means anything, you were the main reason why after discovering the buzzboard that i hung around. ( i basically lurked in the shadows cause i'm not very good (or in tune to current pulse....dayum i gotta watch more tv) at frequent postin's (hell i hate typin' out my feelin's and opinions), but was drawn by what you had to say, and the way in which you said it. if you've said goodbye over there, well then ya gotta keep your woid, but i'm sure there are tons o' folks, over at fsm (who like me), choose to stay silent, (either outta fear, or insecurity of being able to keep up with the rabble)(i actually fall under the later), who now miss your very well thought out, percise surgical postin's on all things considered. :(
Re: sorry for tardy reply. . .
I'll be blunt in here since I chose to be less so in the thread you're talking about VT, it is not appropriate for anybody but SirSteve to give me lessons on moderating these forums and I'd appreciate it if you'd refrain from publically challenging my actions. Private is fine, even privately going over my head to SirSteve is acceptable, but in public, it's not cool, ESPECIALLY when it's not posted in the "comments/suggestions" section. There's a lot of stuff I have to keep in mind while taking actions that Steve has given me to do, even the other moderators don't know about all of it, so if we let one poster slam a mod's actions, we either have to allow everybody to publically tear apart every single action the mods take or allow none of it to keep from looking like favoritism. The only place that stuff isn't totally shot down is in the Comments/Suggestions section, and Steve directly takes care of what is and isn't posted there, I can't verify he doesn't shoot that type of thing down in there since I wouldn't know if he did. This isn't about pride or personality conflicts, this is about SSG policy and other issues which I mentioned in that other thread.

As for your logo, I stopped when you decided you wanted the impossible. 75 pixels wide is maximum width on these forums and the graphic I made was 74 wide, thicker wouldn't work if you wanted ALL of the logo there, as well as looking balloonish; and wider is literally impossible. See the attached to see what I'm talking about, I made it 25% thicker and 20% wider, and as you can see... "bleah".
aVaTar's a-ok & ready for deployment :):):)
"Would Odo approve?"
-since he reads mickey spillane novels, i'd say so :D
"There are some things I'd do differently, but it's not my place"
-ooo, do tell :)
"if you had found a similar thread"
-in fact, i did look for one before starting the new one (you know how reluctant i am to start frivolous new threds when existent ones'll do), but none really fit the bill imo :(
"it's not my place to allow such discussions in the MISC section"
-if you were to discuss this with ss, i bet he just might Let you :)
"it's still coming together and some of it falls under some vague stuff"
-again, lmk if there's anything, in addition to my postings, i can do to help w/that process; after all, even my opponents reluctantly concede i have a talent for clarifying vaguenesses :cool:
np: donald fay-gen, "new frontier"
