    BTW, thanks a lot for setting this up. i'm sure it will be greatly apriciated. email me this admin. thing you mentioned, and explain it please. igfett@hotmail.com

    well, i'm just gonna tell every one what an admin is here. i copied the "definition" from a page in the control panel:

    "Administrators have total control over every
    aspect of the bulletin board. They are, in
    essence, the owners of the board. Thus,
    administrator status should only be conveyed to trusted individuals. Most boards have only one owner or administrator.

    You may grant administrative power to as many users as you please, however. Only Administrators can grant/remove admin authority.

    Administrators are able to set moderators for each forum, set permissions for any registered user, and edit/prune messages."

    Now, I don't think we can do all this stuff, cuz this is the "freeware" version. Now, if i can hack it we might be able to, but then again I don't know CGI/Perl.

    Anyway, igfett, I admin-ed you so if more CPA members sign up, then you can admin them to.
    just go here: http://total-des.hypermart.net/ubb/cp.html and click on "User Info & Permissions"

    Oh, and one more thing, if you wanna be admin-ed, just leave a note here. Thanx!

  5. Zadok001 CPA Founder, Greater Good

    I do believe this is the first time I've managed to register for one of these w/o having to re-do it over and over and over...

    Anyway, count me on.

  6. Young Jedi Administrator

    I would like to be in admin also.
  7. igfett CPA Founder

    should young jedi be admin. he wasn't discussed before. i say no, because we don't want to just continue handing these things out. we should go by the whole "everyone who is currently registered, plus a select few from dojo BBS" thing suggested a while ago. what is everyone else's oppinion?
  8. nekrataal Administrator

    I think he should get an admin. Didn't he help out on the original ideas on the Dojo board? Anyway, everyone else post your opinions.

    Other than Ferret and Young Jedi, were there anymore Dojo guys who were interested?
  9. Zadok001 CPA Founder, Greater Good

    Young Jedi and myself were the first two to send e-mails to Baron. He should definatly be in.

  10. igfett CPA Founder

    OK, he's admin too now. I changed my mind, and 3 out of the 5 current admins said to add him, so I did. we have to stop this now though. only ferret, who everyone seems to feel deserves to play a major part in this, should become an admin now. no more people from the dojo boards. we have 6 administrators now, compared to a standard 1!!! LMK if anyone has a problem with this
  11. nekrataal Administrator

    Agreed, we should stop at Ferret. I wonder if he even knows about the board yet. Maybe someone should email him.
  12. Ferret CPA Founder, Slacker

    Okay, okay. Thanks for the emails guys.

    In my opinion, it would be best if only one or two people acted as admins for the board. I would prefer it to be someone that has experience w/ UBB (which would exclude me) and has no problem w/ hovering over it and making sure it's okay.


    "any takers?"

    So, how did all of this work out?

    What do you mean?
  15. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    The stuff with the UBB and all that...
  16. Chaos Turtle Demiurgic CPA Member, Admin Assistant

    I'd say it worked out all right. Take a look around.

    . o O (Wow, them's some old names...)
  17. train The Wildcard!!!...

    I just think it neat to see this type of thread up... kind of gives a little insight into this site's "beginnings"...
  18. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Mainly I had to reanimate it because it was so old, but I agree with you about that...
  19. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Reanimating it because it is "so old" probably isn't the best thing...

    bringing it back for insight like it provided would be a much better reason - especially if you had a question about why something was done the way it was done, and not some other way.
  20. Chaos Turtle Demiurgic CPA Member, Admin Assistant

    I think we get the point. Now we can let this thread rest in peace.
