I think the first posts don't show up on a new page until a second post is made.  That happened to me as well.

Same with me and it was a POTW!

POTW? Proofs, Doc, we need proofs!

EDIT: this "new page" glinch is very common here, and ppb is quite right. The first post of the new page doesn't usualy appear before someone else posts, which coul be cumbersome at times...

The Perl version got upgraded, which meant that the various additional modules needed to make IkonBoard go weren't installed to begin with. Let me know if there are ones I've missed so far.

Last night, I started having the usual symptoms of the common cold. I headed off to sleep without bothering to log out my chat client. The following was in a chat window I found up just now:

Hi, is this Mr. Elsberry of the AntiEvolution forum?
I'm trying to gather information on your forum for a research paper. I'm at a freshman at Ohio State University. It seems everyone who I have tried to contact has ignored me or told me they could not talk about the board or answer my questions.
One referred me to you...
11:53 PM
Ah, okay, I'm starting to see a pattern. Silence. A little like a cult, right? Thanks for your help.. I think I just found my thesis.

I think the freshman researcher has yet to discover the term "effective notice". It certainly isn't provided by unsolicited electronic chat starting at 11:45 PM. Anybody here have contact information for this fellow?

He hasn't contacted me, though I have to wonder why he didn't just make an account and post his questions.

The same occurred to me. Would it be hasty to surmise that he wasn't particularly interested in answers?

Smells bogus to me. A young person familiar with IM-ing wouldn't look at a few minutes of non-response as anything unusual.

I'd suspect a young person who uses what appears to be a proper name (Carl Luppino, Carla, Carlo, Carlotta, etc.) would have some trace on the internet, particularly facebook.

The semi-threat of "Silence. A little like a cult, right?...I think I have my thesis"  seems abrupt,  like a person with an axe to grind.

Smells fishy to me. Much like ____'s mum.

There isn't much to go on, but I think I'll be contacting the Ohio State University Committee on Academic Misconduct tomorrow. There's a section in "Prohibited Conduct" that appears applicable:

The people search feature at OSU doesn't return any hits for "Luppino".

When I click "add reply" or "quote" but am not logged in, the board sends me to a "you are not logged in" page.  Wouldn't it make more sense to just send me to the login page?

I know you guys are busy but is there any way we could get a site-meter type thing, I've always wondered what the readership (of AtBC in particular) is.

Thanks Wes. I know there are few plug-ins so hopefully it's not too hard. You've done well resisting the urge to monetize the website..

But, really, who can put a price on the vast cultural archive that is the UD threads.  Some historian/archaeologist will thank Wes some day.*

For the record, I just installed the Sitemeter now, right about the start of January 19th in the Eastern time zone.

23 hours, 836 visits recorded. Not too shabby.

The Sitemeter thing is not on the RSS feed, either, so this is just picking up when people visit the IkonBoard forum pages.

Over 1k now, half a million by year end is my optimistic target. Depends if ID tries to get back into schools I suppose.

Visits would have to average over 1,470 per day, and summer is notoriously low traffic for everybody. I'll be happy if the visits are over 200K at year's end.

Of course, we could start a pool...
