@Sarah_Hill well it does in fact work like that and it is not useless as you might think.
As I stated, a member could have a hundred warnings but that does not necessarily
result in a ban.
Some also think that a warning is the end of the world or a bad thing. It is not necessarily
a bad thing. It's just that some times that member may not realize the forum rules.
An example is a recent new member that kept posting nothing but an emoticon. After
denying many of those posts, a warning was issued to stop posting an emoticon because
his posts are denied. He stopped. He obviously didnt know he couldn't do that but
that doesn't mean admin would ban him from the forum if he received 5 or more warnings
So although you may think it is useless, it really isn't. It has nothing to do with
authority of the moderators either. Mostly it is a messaging system for moderators
and admin to notify the member of whatever they are needing notified about in regards
to the forum rules.
Take another example of the member that is posting bad language, calling members
names, going against forum rules. When admin sees that member has received
numerous warnings, admin can see what the warnings were for and admin is more
prone to ban that member.
It's all about what the owners need to know and it is their option what they choose
to do, if anything.
This topic is far more interesting and much nicer so why don't you focus
on your nicer side for a change.
In regards to that dresser, actually it would come more to bringing in the
big money if left as is.....other than perhaps fixing an issue with it such
as any wheels that needed to be back on it. Don't ever refinish or paint
an antique if you want the big money unless of course you are just selling
it for a low to average price.
People that are real antiquer's don't want anything changed, they want
the original. Of course the better condition will bring more money.
If you had listed on eBay or craigslist, you probably would have gotten
I picked my first veggie from my veggie garden today. It was a green
sweet bell pepper. I probably could have let it grow a few more days
but something kept saying 'pick me' pick me' pick me.....so I picked it
and ate part of it.
I have tomatoes but most of them have little black spots on them so
not sure if that has something to do with spraying water or if it is a
fungus or what. I read some where that it doesn't affect the tomato
but it sure doesn't look pretty.
I have one cucumber about the size of a little pickle. It so cute. I
want to eat it too but it is saying 'leave me alone' 'leave me alone'
so I am leaving it alone for now.
In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as Father's Day. Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972.
In addition to Father's Day, International Men's Day is celebrated in many countries on November 19 in honor of men and boys who are not fathers.
One time some years ago, I wanted to buy the domain catdog dot com it was taken
so I tried dogcat dot com and it was taken too.
So not long ago I tried to buy the domain name BoBoDog dot com but they wanted
a couple grand for it so I didn't bother.
Then I decided to try BoDog dot com and of all things that domain has been legally
seized by the government or a state due to gambling!
I call maltese dogs 'BoBoDogs' because my dog name is Bo and I call him BoBoDog.
I was going to start a blog about 'BoBoDogs' (maltese). It wasn't super important,
just a thought so I didn't pay the amount they wanted for it at the time.
Just for the record, I tried to get the reputation thing removed. I even
had an open topic concerning it. I feel it is useless and on the childish
side. I think it is little things like that, that can bring out the kid in
people if they are not a kid already. I realize it is just human nature
for some people to take stuff to heart like a reputation button.
Also, just for the record, the warning thing doesn't really mean anything
eiher. All it is, is for admin or moderator to submit a message to the
user concerning whatever that they did against the rules.
In regards to banning, well that is very rare I am sure. I could submit
a hundred warnings on someone and they'd probably still be here or at
least til the cows come home.
@proadco, not all but I will have to say most of what you posted above
is the most sensical thing you've posted since you've been using the
general sub forum.
I snore so loud that I wake myself up snoring. Really I do. One day recently I fell asleep in
the recliner and when I woke myself up snoring, my little dog's face was almost right in my
face with a look of amazement on his face.
Also, I am not leaving. I think some got that impression. I just don't
have the time I once did to be as active.
Just remember if you have an issue you can't get resolved here, submit
a support ticket through the helpdesk.
Bottomline, moderators do not have authority here. This topic really
is bad for everyone. I don't know why he made such a topic because
if he is having an issue with a moderator, he should contact the admin
through the helpdesk.
Also remember, don't allow yourself to get bent out of shape at a forum
online. There are good people and bad people and down right weird
The only thing moderators can do that members in general cannot do, is
edit, lock, deny posts. That's it.
What I see often and I do mean happen very often, is members getting
bent out of shape if their topic is edited or locked. They feel like it is some
sort of personal attack or their human rights are on the line.
When the truth of the matter, moderators for the most part could not
care less....I know I don't. I don't know anyone here. There isn't anyone
here that comes to my house. I've never met anyone here in person. Yet,
if I follow the forum rules and do the task of moderating which I said I would
do, there are always going to be those members that think they are some
how being singled out.
However, in regards to authority, moderators do not have authority at ClixSense.
Pennies meant much more back then. Up til around the 80's, people could still buy
stuff with 1 cent. There was still 1 cent candy and gum. Sales tax's were often
lower and the cents was handy to cover the tax.
Saving pennies was a way to teach your children how to save money.
The piggy banks were extremely popular in the 60's and 70's.
Coin collecting.....searching for old valuable pennies was very popular.
Basically, it was just a fun and often not even thought about, thing to do in regards
to saving the coins.
In the United States, it is illegal to destroy currency of any kind in regards
to federally issued money. That includes cash bills and it includes coins.
I remember back in the 1970's and once again in the 1980's, there was
a dramatic 1 cent coin shortage. I think it was in the 70's that the banks
were giving extra money for every 100 cent coins turned in. For example
if you turned in 500 1 cent coins, you got back $5.00 in bills and a nickel.
What happen was people were saving their 1 cent coins.
In the bank where I banked at that time, they had a huge clear acrylic
type case. It was in the middle of the bank floor and I guess it was
about 12 x 12 feet and maybe 6 foot high. When people turned in their
pennies, they were then dumped in that case. It was all a big todo in
order to get people to turn in their pennies because the country was
literally growing short of them.
Anyway, REAL USA federal pennies cannot be glued to a floor, not legally.
I don't think your post makes any sense what so ever and I will tell you why.
Moderators do not have any authority.
Moderators are simply volunteers that spend their personal time answering
questions of members, helping new members, denying posts that are very
much against the rules that you fortunately never see, and more.
However, in regards to authority here, we have none. We are not owners.
We are not administration. We are not employees. We have no authority
here at all.
