It's great to see some activity in here. I got a message from administration that they are working on the forum. They responded to my blog about the other forum.
Here's a copy and paste....
"admin | March 1, 2011
We're working on a new forum with a lot of the functionality you guys are requesting. We'll be getting rid of the captcha for registered members, you'll be able to upload photos, have Emoticons, etc.
This should be up in the next few weeks.
But I'm excited to see themay_or and CABOMIGHK have come over to check out the VN1 page.
Gotta CAPTCHA... everyone have a great Hump day!
Hope you had a good holiday... this CAPTCHA thing is a bloody nuisance, what you have to type keeps getting longer & longer, I'll have rewritten gone with the wind in another week!!
Yeah the friend request thingy isn't working :(
We'll have to bring it to 'admin's attention...
Yep Mr. CAPTCHA is still here...
We've been in the old Cafe' just for old time sake I guess...some of us don't always want to chat on facebook. Gotta work with what we have I suppose...
Glad your back girlie, and glad you had a great vaca!!!!!
Stop in and say hello! Neil I got your friend requested but it won't let me accept you!!!
I see MR CAPTCHA is still here :-( I miss the olden days in the Cafe! Say la Vie for now!
That thing has been doing that for a while now, we arent allowed to have new friends anymore!!!!!!!
Hey Kath - just having a cold one in the old hangout!!
Thanks for the link Neil. I'll have to check it out at home tonight. Also, saw your friend request here, but everytime I click on approve it locks up on me. I'll try it again later. just wanted to let you know I'm not ignoring you. You can always catch me of facebook too. Have a super day!
Hi Kath we have some fantastic international rugby going on at the moment - a competition call the Six Nations - presuming that the link stays attached to this note this was a game from the weekend - really was a great game and for a neutral observer a really good intro to the game at its highest level. Some of the tackling will take your breath away ... and these chaps dont wear any padding!! chttp://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00yyjrv/5_live_Sport_Six_Nations_2011_England_v_France/
I'm so tried of winter Kath!!! Can't wait until Spring and some nice warm sunshine...hopefully dry ground to go with it LOL... Looked at house over the weekend, we'll be looking into it...it's got AWESOME potential if they want to come down on the price..fingers crossed!!!
Glad your back with us Neil...we missed ya! No, there is no way to 'brighten' up this place. They were suppose to be working on a new forum for us, one that has all the fun bells and wistles, but don't know what happened...maybe too many other things to work on first? Dunno...
Thanks for the kudos on my rant...was just very frustrated...this place means a lot to many of us and we MISS being able to interact daily like we use too :(
Not a problem Mike...eventually they will get this whole place together...I still have confidence! And if this place don't drive ya crazy, we will Bwahahahah.......
Glad to see we a getting a couple people stopping in every now and then. But it's just the same is it? Looks ugly, had to follow and a pain to post to. I'm not techie, but it seems to me that there should be a way to copy the format of the old forum here. I would love that. I really miss chatting with all my redhead buddies. I hope you are all well and surviving this awful winter.
Well ranted Dar,I'd hit the like button if there was one....
Will make sure I'm very regular Kath!! A strange feel to the new place .... will take some getting used to, doesn't feel homely yet, needs a few picks to brighten up the place - Is that possible?
I thought this place was going to finally take off when I saw Kath in here too. I guess not. Hey Dar, this thing still won't let me except friends. This site is going to drive me crazy one day.
Hey Dar! Thanks for the message. I would have eventually stopped by here again. I'm amazed I remembered my password. LOL.
Nice to see you here! I do pop in every couple of days, but haven't posted anything here in a while. Hope all is well with you. I think I'll stick with hockey as it's very unusual to catch a rugby match on our side of the pond. :)
Now that you've found us here, don't be a stranger.
You found us LOL...
We stopped coming here for a while, but I'll tell her you have a message for her.
Have a great Sunday Redheads!!
Kath if you are reading this it will be minor miracle!! Dont watch hockey - watch Rugby!!
I keep checking in to see if any improvements have been made.
Maybe we could use the old Vote Number 1 forum. The moderator decided to close the page and the Bon Jovi fans saved the forum. So there is a lot of Jovi stuff on the front burner there.
But there is room for Sammy. I messed around a little with a Scrapbook of photos and such. Would you guys like to check it out?
You can post photos.... change your font... embedded videos and post GIF animations. Replies are nested.
I gab with the Jovi gang and there are a few of us that are Rush fans. There was a lot of Queen fans, but they didn't make it through the transition. All the archives have been saved. Lots of good stuff there.
You have to have your beginning posts approved until the new moderators realize that you aren't a troller or Spammer. Nice folks there!
I just started a new thread for conversations over there.... 'Livin it up Cafe'.
I'll mention to the moderators that I have invited the RedHeads to come over so hopefully you wont have to wait to long to get approved and then you can post freely.
one of the many things they need to fix here. Not a problem, thanks for the heads up though.
YES, I totally remember that moment in Cabo at the Cantina...2007, broken ankle, yes that was me lol!! We had just met Laura, John and the whole OU812 band...met Katharin & her hubby for the first time...Just wish I could remember YOU taking our picture...THANK you for that, I still have those cherished pics...that was such a busy afternoon...so much emotion meeting friends I've only talked to online and on the phone for so long. If not for the broken ankle, that would have been a perfect trip. I had my girls with me that year...they were at the cantina with us at that moment..
WOW, great memory!! Time DOES fly!!
the stupid approval thing isn't working on the "friends" request page. I'm not ignoring you. You know I met you once down in Cabo. You had just arrived and were at the cantina. Your leg was in a cast if I remember right, but I took a picture of you and a bunch of other people for you. You were at a table with Laura and some other old time REDHEADS. It was 3 or 4 years ago now, WOW!!!!! time flies!!!!!
the store has been 'coming' for a while now lol... LMAO, goodness wouldn't want to get us excited...maybe that's why we get new bits and pieces every once in a while...wouldn't want us all to rush the board at once LOL...
They said they got rid of the CAPTCHA a while ago..but alas, FAIL!!
Maybe one day we'll get a 'real' forum. I know they spoke of it a while ago, but I guess it got put on the back burner. That must be one busy burner LOL.....
There looks to be a store coming on line too. If they arent careful around here, some people might start getting excited!! Now if we could get rid of the CAPTCHA!!!!!!!!
that they haven't posted the book or the book signing on the main page (it was only in the 'events' section) and a little while afterward I saw it was posted on the main site. I'm sure it was just my impeccable timing LOL....
Have a great day Mike!!
Are you refering to someone responding to you? I keep checking to see if anyone is talking in this vast empty pit and you are the only one who tries.
either someone is listening, or my timing is impeccable!!! LOL....
I think everything you said is spot on! I cant beleive I can get more info from a Van Halen board than the Red Rocker site. Usually this place would be buzzing with all of the things coming up. Once this place went on line, it seems every REDHEAD died with the old site. We need the store back too, once again, you have to go to a Van Halen site to buy anything related to Sammy or Cabo Wabo. Maybe it has got to the point where Sammy doesnt really want to bother with it, I hope not though.
will never take off. The fans don't like it, it's a pain and to be honest, it just plain sucks! How long has it been now since we've gotten this *new* website? Personally, I think it's ridiculous that we don't have a complete site by now. The Redrocker store has been down for what, at LEAST 2 years?? And they're just now working on a new one?? This forum bombed from the beginning (some of us diehards tried!!)...the old one was awesome but the 'new' Redrocker team wanted a whole new format/website...not to mention the 'new' team are professionals (or so I thought) who run many other artists websites, not just this one. I think I liked it better when the website/forum was run by the 'fans'...much more love and passion was put into it...it really meant something, and everyone's input was welcomed. Right now, it's just a 'business' and obviously not one of which is a priority. It's pretty sad when a FAN page on facebook has more daily traffic, passion and love flowing through it than the 'official' site does! That should speak volumes right there...
I always thought us REDHEADS were more important than that...maybe I was wrong. I'll ask Sammy next month when I see him at the book singing! OH yeah, even THAT hasn't been posted on the main page...it's under the 'Events' section. I would think that is important enough to put on the main page, no? We'd be chatting up a storm about it if we had a decent forum to discuss it on...
I gotta go do that stupid CAPTCHA thing now...
(p.s. I don't mean to sound bitchy, I'm just a frustrated Redhead)
Still checking in to see if this is taking off. Tell all your friends.
Just stopping by to see if anyone has been here. HI
we've been waiting a long time for this to be fixed. I don't usually post so i know i shouldnt complain, but I did use it for info on shows and other things. I guess we'll keep waiting.
Welcome to the Cafe!! Sorry no one has been here to say hello or welcome you but if I understood what admin had posted, they will be getting rid of this forum and giving us a new one, so not many have been coming here regularly like we use to.
Yep, looks like the 'old' forum has gotten hacked...bummer, I really liked that forum...wish they could have kept it.
Hopefully we'll get a new one here soon...
Anywho, glad you found the forum and cafe...normally it's pretty busy, but this new forum is a pain with the way it's set up and the Captcha and no one really likes using it...but we're here :)
I've been lurking. I'm stopping in for a quick look. I've been studying and I can't stay awake. I'll have to get up early and finish the test review tomorrow. My Calculus test is at 3:30p. So, I'll have a little time tomorrow to review.
I hope everyone is doing well!
LOL. The time is messed up. Must be California time. It's Wednesday at almost 3am here in Florida.
All this Captcha is driving me nuts. Gotta do it again... just for an edit! OYE!
Still no one in here!!
Stopping by to see who is here......
Happy Monday Everyone!
Yeah, Looking forward to the party later today. Everyone have a great day!
I just found this link on the old forum. Looks like this needed a boost so I posted a blog about the new forum. Hopefully the fans will come over.
My e-mail got bombed this week from the old forum. Some spammer over there is posting dating ads. OYE.... I think I had 50 e-mails to delete. I got that turned off now.
Hello Fellow RedHeads!
Hey Dar! Christmas is really 3 weeks away?? I guess I better take a look at a calendar more often. Like you, I'm not really feeling it yet. I mean we decorated the house inside and out, but I still don't feel the holiday cheer. Maybe a bottle of tequila could help with that. LOL! Actually, we are starting our shopping tonight. Oh joy!
Have a super weekend my friend.
Happy Friday! Just read that they changes things a bit here with the forum, thought I'd come say hello and check it out..
Hope all has been well with everyone. Wow, Xmas is in 3 weeks...I am so not ready!!! Just not getting the spirit this year and I love Xmas!! Psyched we're going to see Joe in Boston at the Hard Rock next Thursday!! Early Xmas gift for my husband from me and the girls :) That's all he wanted...I was so happy getting that gift LOL!!
Hope everyone has a good one and a great weekend!!
You found us!! Sucker for punishment huh? LOL ;)
I do not like this forum set up at all either...for a few reasons. So far everyone who has gave their opinion seems to agree...not sure what they can do about it...
OH and the friend thing gave me a very hard tine too...had to try it a couple different ways before it worked...I think if you go on her profile and accept her as a friend there, it might work...it's messed up...I tried to add you as a friend but the page wont load to let me. The 'contact' is not working either...
I tried to accept ya as a friend but it isn't working right for me :(
just don't like the new format as I stated earlier today on the 'old' forum...
Hope all is well with everyone!
This place has been pretty dead lately. Is everyone busy elsewhere or are we just not liking this new format? Personally, I don't like this format. I like the old board much better.
Anyway.......... hello to anyone who stops by. :)
This isn't the annual NW Redhead Bash. That is always in March. This just just a group of us getting together because we can. :) I know the gals in charge of the big bash will be there Saturday. I'll see if they've picked a date yet. I'd love to see you come up for it. We almost had Chip there last year. But he opted to go to a family wedding instead.
So is it the famous get together for the NW Redheads or something different. Always wanted to get out that way...someday!
Good morning Redheads. Hope this week is treating everyone good so far. I'm officially done with football for the year. The Cowboys totally suck and I don't know what has happened to the Longhorns. Guess I'll start watching hockey.
Looking forward to the weekend. Going to catch a concert in Portland on Friday night. Then on Saturday a bunch of NW redheads are getting together. Rumor has it the famous Tim Taylor will make an appearance. LOL!
Hope you all have a great day. I've got a ton of work to get done so I better get to it.
Hi gang...hope all is well and everyone had a good weekend.
Just might check out the film this coming Dec 11th in SF since I missed it in Cabo. It looks like it will be fun with all that is posted, plus the $$$ is going to charity so I really don't mind paying the high price of $100 per person.
Cary is in Las Vegas for business for the week, so it is just me and Ooski at the ranch...might go out with the girls, but being a week night, it is hard getting up and going to work the next morning. I used to be able to stay out all night and then come home, change my clothes and then go straight to work, it bites getting old!
Everyone have a good week!
Hope your having a good one so far. No plans here for the weekend, just looking forward to the football games.
Kath, enjoy your new ipad if your able to get it away from them long enough to play with it yourself lol...
Lis, we'll be looking for ya Sunday at the game while we watch, have fun!!
Have a great day everyone, catch ya's later :)
