• We are looking at another platform to host these forums. If it turns out to be viable, it will happen, but it still quite a ways off. It will be the same user ID as your Bakersfield.com account (you just have to register if you aren’t already, not be a subscriber). There will be user rankings and detailed profile pages for each user. We are still…[Read more]

    In reply to: ApolloDawn posted an update I hope this isn’t interpreted as spamming, but Thanksgiving Live is repeated at 4:00 pm on Food Network today. It’s a fun, two-hour interactive Q&A program on preparing thanksgiving […] View

    Not spamming at all. Please share stuff like this. This isn’t just a place to debate news, but to share things others in the community may enjoy as well.

    Now I’m going to log into my UVerse app and record this!

  • Just deleted an entire thread because deleting all the posts that contained insults and name-calling would have left two or three posts. If you have to resort to name calling and personal attacks to get your point across, you should re-think your argument.

  • Folks – we now have a Politics forum (working on an icon). Please post any political threads over there and leave the National News forum for everything else.

    I need a couple thousand dollars to PAY someone to pack all my crap up, move it, AND unpack it! I’ve said this before, but I’m never doing it again! LOL

  • I. Hate. Moving.
    I think I’d rather have a root canal. Or 10 root canals.

  • A blanket reminder for everyone to respect other users by using their handles when addressing them and not to make up insulting names.

    Not sure what has gotten into folks this week, but I’ve had to delete more comments than normal. Keep it in line, folks.

    No problemo. I know it’s a pain. It’s a pain here, too. Good to see you online CatPaw!

  • Hey folks – You don’t need to report the registration of the spammers. When they register, only that shows up in the activity feed. They can’t post anything until I approve them. I’m looking onto getting the fact they registered out of the activity feed, but I’m not sure it can be done. Just continue to report any of their actual posts (if they…[Read more]

    In reply to: ApolloDawn posted an update @JamieButow, the site appears to have fallen into complete neglect. As I said, ”appears.” Five new spammer accounts have been approved since the last time that I mentioned this. I […] View

    Thanks for flagging. The site currently isn’t set up where new users need approval, it just keep legit folks waiting. As you can see, I wasn’t online yesterday. If we keep getting hit, we’ll have to change things. It just isn’t great for user interaction though.

  • Based on your feedback, we made some significant changes to the site yesterday in an effort to make things easier to use. Below is a rundown of the tabs and what you’ll find under each of them.

    LOG-INS: We see that there are a few isolated log-in issues, we’re working to fix those. If you’re having trouble logging in, send me an email […]

  • Will there be a spell check function?

    No. Modern web browsers have spell check built into them, underlining or auto-correcting misspelled words. We recommend Firefox, but make sure you’re on the latest version […]
