LOL sometimes I effing hate you!! :)

Well, dunno, just cruising around and saw it on another forum I was visiting. Thought I would try it out and see if I could be the next Rockefeller or Trump!! But nah, the reason I chose this new one - the old is really just a graphic that pointed to Paypal using my email address. This one has a shitload of other options that are more helpful. I wish it were more like 8"x" or so, but not sure how or if it's possible.

Hope someone cut your cane.

Think about who you are talking to. Einstein. Just what I need. More options. I have to search to click on "enter". :slap: Now you want to play IRS and hand out tax forms. Great. I feel so much better. I don't even remember where my Paypal account disappeared to.

More options for ME you ass, not you! Well, yeah, a member would have to hit 2 buttons now in order to get to Paypal. Still easy though, just more gaudy at the top of the board, admittedly.

Oh, I see. More options for YOU. The rest of us have to suffer so YOU can make sh*t easy on yourself. Do you even get out of that LaZBoy in the morning? Or does the missus deliver your coffee?

"Shameless Old Whore" :laugh2:

Gotta hand it to the old Marine... he cuts right to the chase.

Probably about time to donate again... we can't have Jim going to strip clubs without a handful of dollar bills at the ready. I think I'm still in the lead for "Person burning up the most of Jim's bandwidth".

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

If any of you have donated, and do so again because I am messing with this bar, I will send your donation back to you!! Admittedly, I don't have any shame - but I DO NOT need money. I never took it down really over the years, and am not in a position to ask others to help support the place. But if it IS going to be there, might as well do it the right way.

Jim, why the heck do you need Paypal donations? According to the siteworthtraffic page, DP is worth a stunning $86!
Not to mention the fact that Jim rakes in a princely $4 per month from ad traffic.
If this site's cash flow picks up any further, Jim is going to need my husband's company to help invest his income. :cool:

Those online worth sites are useless. Some of them value the site in the thousands. Some reported the same values as u say for my old site, which made more, and sold for $4k, so believe as u will. :)

I know exactly how worthless they are. :cool: One listed DP as worth $4600. Another was only a bit lower.
I chose the lowest amount in an attempt to add to the levity of the thread.

Of course, if DP was worth $86, my daughter could have bought it with the money she made playing Christmas parties. Said she would get rid of everything except the Poetry forum. :laugh:

I was offered the board first at $6K. By the previous owner. I said nope. Man's got to know his limitations. I know nothing about the money end/advertising. Except I hate it. Like your new little bar.

Gunny, and Jim. Gabby HAD to declare DP worthless. And we should agree with her, as long as she keeps coming here to annoy us, troll us, and we watch her make a fool of herself every time.


Meanwhile. The rest of us, with brains, intelligence, feelings, and as humans ENJOY coming to DP. Where else could we find idiots like gabby, bully, and pete?????:laugh:

Why would anyone want to administer a non-technical message board? All that work for no significant return! I could see running a technical message board, you could manage it to contribute to your career and others that care to join you on the same path. I would consider starting a Big Data or Data Science/Mathematical Statistics or Software Architecture message board, but that's it.

Let's see how honest you really are tailfins. Go ahead and start a BIG DATA message board. You should have a TON of fun, being there to talk to yourself without anyone bothering you...ever again.
CONSIDER NO MORE...Just....DO IT!

I'm not the CO, President nor anything else. I am the reckoning. I know my role.

What are you calling non-technical? I had the keys to the board. I may BS around, but I'm not anywhere near as dumb as I play. I was THE admin. Just who do you think was the one that had access to the database? I had a full time job and ran a board with 2-3 K posts a day, and at least 50 headaches just like you.

So why indeed. It started out as doing a favor on a small board I turned into a monster because I got caught up thinking post count was what mattered most. You can go look at the result. The people don't matter. The post count does. I wouldn't give a nickel for the place now.

You want to start a board? Go right ahead. You don't have the temperment and are too one sided. There is nothing objective about you. You run a board, you have to grit your teeth at idiots and say nothing. Being a technical geek and owner does NOT make you a leader.

We are friends here. People are more important than post count on sone geeky shit on the net that means nothing in the end. Think about it. You always get welcomed back,

Maybe Pete will chime in, he's owned a lot of sites. Those sites that do valuations are crap. They are all over the board if you put the same domain name in 30 of those sites.

Pick a hobby subject - then it's fun. I like politics, I like most of the people.... I LOVE the technical back end and running a site, the FTP, coding, vBulletin, researching, advertising (not lately). Lots of work though, and in return I get folks like Gabby and yourself mocking and giving me troubles from time to time. :)

Yups. But at that subject, advertising might be nice, and if he gets just 50 posting members...

My goal is to NEVER hit that ban button unless absolutely necessary. Everyone has a right to their voice (remember my old slogan "where your voice counts) over at the other place? But I won't always bite my tongue. I will often just reply in kind, but I won't ban that person.

I think I actually banned maybe 3 people the entire time. Banned member don't post. They were oddly enough pretty much the same people you have banned. Others don't post here because of me. Sorry (not). I wish I'd done all that sh*t I'm accused of. I'd have had a great sex life, hard-partying a-hole from Hell. :laugh: Truth is, I worked 10 hours a day then had to come babysit a board and spent most of my time undoing what some of the mods were up to. Then others would act like "well, you knew ths was going on". Sure. I got time to read 2K posts and get involved in your personal pissing contests.

So when someone comes along and says "I'm going to start my own board" like they got a better plan I just exhale. Good luck. Why do you think I'm always screwing with you? I KNOW the sh*t you have to take. Better your dumb ass than mine.:laugh:

Also want to add - while I think those valuation sites suck, and laughed at Gabby's guestimate - I DO NOT think this joint is worth a lot of cash, IMO. There are various reasons that one could sell at a decent value, and some will buy at such prices. I have zero desire to ever sell. And if I ever grow tired, it'll be going to someone trusted, a gift if you will, just to keep things going and "as-is". It really doesn't make jack shit as far as ads go that Gabby pointed to. It's far from a moneymaker!! :) And it's easy to keep running forever. :) :) The costs I believe everyone knows - renew the domain name, which I generally do for 2 years at a time. I also pay extra to keep the domain registry private. Yes, you have to pay extra to do that!! Folks will look up ownership and the stalking starts!! LOL And in addition to the domain name, we have a $20 monthly hosting fee. It COULD be much much cheaper on a "shared" hosting plan that most places use, but you guys remember issues in the past, and I have us on a semi-dedicated server for better performance. Then the occasional fee for any software, software upgrades or the equivalent. I don't think much more than that? So like $30 every 2 years for the "name", about $240 per year on hosting fees. In a nutshell that's really it, but sometimes I'll buy software and use it here, and then uninstall because you bastards don't care for it. And a few we do use that were long, long paid for already. But average it's like $255 per year. Generally speaking, if you look at the member names in yellow, and of course our awesome staff, a few years it probably evened out with a huge thanks to folks who donated to help keep things going. If you think I'm rich off of the Google advertising, think again. :) Let's put it this way, it doesn't make enough to cover the year. AND I offset it sometimes by using Google Adwords as well, which is an extra cost, as that's me advertising with Google. If someone were to search "political message board", we would have an advertisement off to the right, for example. Problem with that is, it can cost anywhere from $1 - $5 or so PER CLICK!!! Needless to say, Adwords is rarely used by myself. :)

And for the liberals here - just think of me as Trump running a casino. You can come in and have fun, and it looks glitzy and glamorous, but it's not a moneymaker and I may have to file for bankruptcy. :)
