"You may not edit more than 10 different post(s) within 7 days".

.... are you kidding me? First of all, this is broken because I haven't edited 10 different posts. I've edited 2 different posts 10 times (apparently).

Second of all, how is this an improvement? How does restricting number of edits improve, secure, or benefit anything? :mad:

That ship sailed when it was sold to VS by the owner. It would be like showing up at the house you sold your washer and dryer to and saying you need to do some laundry.

A new site was sprung out of an old failure back in '03 because the owner of that site took advantage of the members. Starting fresh and new would be quite an undertaking though and someone would have to be willing to invest a decent chunk of change and a whole lotta time and at least a handful of experience. I can only think of a few that would be capable but I do not think they are willing.

Anyway... so, was a PUSH just a rebrand of a Pop-Up?

Sort of, but it's worse. A pop-up only occurs when you're visiting that particular site. A PUSH, as they're referring to it (there are other definitions, such as in APIs), occurs when you're on any site. It's like being woken by a spam phone call in the middle of the night..."why the **** didn't I turn off the phone?!" You're giving them permission to pipe updates to you whenever, wherever.

I can't think of a less appealing feature in modern browsers.

Shouldn't need too, unless it's set on by default. That would be a terrible judgement call on rolling out a new feature that's so "pushy".
I haven't had one hit me yet, so I assume it's not "on" by default, since it was apparently added in the last update.

You don't need to unsub from them unless you've already chosen to allow them. By default, ALL major browsers block push notifications unless you click "allow" when your browser tells you that a site would like to send notifications. If you have clicked allow without meaning to, you can click the icons just to the left of the URL up at the very top of the browser window and revoke the permissions.

It's not nefarious. It's not sneaky. It's not pushy(other than in the literal technological sense). It's a feature that many people appreciate. One, that by default is disabled in every stock major browser for those that do not.

@BikerPepe` there is a spot to see who's birthday is today, but it doesnt function. I've tried it at least 5 times and it says no users match the criteria.

Traffic is definitely way down. When I'm one of top posters at under 10 per day, you know traffic is slow.

Anyone here familiar with what it takes to operate a website? I want to start one for my LowBuckBum designs, etc. The software costs for Vbulletin aren't too horrible, but I can't seem to get a fix on what buy space on a server costs. Any help would be appreciated.

Yeah for real, I'm not less active than I was in the past and I'm consistently top 15 commenters every day

Well for those of you who may not have noticed, the almighty powers did listen to our pleas.

The text in dark mode is not stark white anymore, but a very light gray. This is evident when comparing to the stark white of thread title text. It isnt a big change, but I do notice it's a bit easier on the eyes.

I did take these screenshots, showing that Xenforo can definitely support "bronco info" and location under our names. @fullsize, any info you can share about the progress of this request??

Meh, still glows to my old man, bifocal needing eyes.

... but I am thankful you brought it up, seems as if SOMEONE is still alive here, just not who we hoped would be posting in this thread regularly, or even WEEKLY.

That said, I'm now treating this like a nonsensical picture thread until they block me from posting in the thread.
