An idea for pending tabs

I noticed pending tabs getting pretty far backed up sometimes (I understand Alex, there are more important things than constantly goofing around an internet forum that one needs to be doing) and I had an idea.

Could you give the Chris/Father Death the authority to review and archive updated tabs? I figured that it would speed things up a bit and keep everyone happier, and making your job shorter as well.


Just a thought...

yeah, ive wondered over this myself. but nomad probably wants 100% of control over the archiving business, just for the sake of security and his piece of mind when it comes to whats being posted, not as an offense to chris or father death, just as a protective daddy feels

My thoughts exactly... sometimes they do get updated every day for a week though.

Nomad is currently in the process of moving to another country, so needless to say everything but this site is an important matter for him right now.

just less than a year ago Nomad was 1-2 months behind archiving tabs almost constantly, and that lasted for several years. you have all been spoiled w/his archiving within a few days trick he's been pulling for a few months now, so there is no reason to get your panties in a twist people. all will be settled in time, and that is all we can ever ask really...PATIENCE!!

as Transient said, this is Nomads baby, so He and only He will ever be archiving, until the day comes he gives control of this site to someone else.

Yea, I kinda made that evident in my post...

Yea, I kinda figured that to be the answer, just thought I should bring it up.

Bullshit, without us there would be no site, he should do something about congestion, even if there is like after a fortnight all tabs get automatically submitted if they havn't been locked by the mods, anything.

You guys should stop talking for Nomad and let him make his own decisions.

"Hey, I've found a way that world peace can work where everyone can live in paridise and eternal pleasure, everyone would love it, Everyone would be rich, I swear to god, it's faultless!"

"No, nope, we can't have that, Nomad wouldn't want that, because it's not in his interests, he's a misanthrope, he wouldn't want that."

"Awt, damn, looks like the rest of us have to suffer."

I've got nothing against Nomad, he's granted all my requests and done what I've asked, he's great, but I've said it before, it's because of him the site is here, it's because of us the site is a success and is fun to be at, and it's because of us that the site lasted longer than a few months.

nomads a great guy but he has little to do with these forums. i dont think he gives a shit about us, and essentially just checks in on us every now and then. the archiving back logs a bit puzzling, but at least all the tabs are being archived. its not like hes sloppy about it

his concern is what most people that come to metaltabs see. he doesnt care about the forums, just the main site itself. the forums a pretty elitist area, only about 50 regular members id say. and we take care of ourselves, so he doesnt bother to come in here much

I don't really see the problem. Everybody here whining knows the Pending Tabs forum exists, and it's no less a tab if you get it there.

If it's a matter of getting your own tabs archived, well, you can try shutting the fuck up. It's pretty effective, in my experience.

Anyway, I'm sure Alex'll get around to it when he has the time. Considering that this is something he pays money to do in his spare time, it's not that much to ask that you be patient. And I doubt he chooses to update infrequently; it's just the way life is. Your life's the same way. I mean, it would be if you weren't a co-dependant netizen.

Chilling out about unimportant shit's the easiest thing in the world, Tranny. There's no reason to stress out over minor annoyances like how long it takes an internet tab to be moved from one part of the site to another. If not having so much invested in a website that I can let tab archiving bead up and slide off me looks like perfection to you, then sure, I guess I'm perfect.

But thanks for your awesome sarcasm. I laughed so hard I plotzed. Plotzed.

I wish Nomad were here right now to lock this worthless thread. Seriously, I don't think I've ever been more annoyed by whining on here than I am now.

Honestly, Steve, this isn't actually a bad suggestion, but it can't happen the way the site is run. Even if it could happen, Alex would want to take care of that himself, so it wouldn't.

To answer your unnecessary question, Infinity, we are "talking for Nomad" instead of allowing him to do it because we talk with him on a regular basis regarding the site and forum and how it runs as well as the fact that Alex is busy right now moving to a different continent. Excuse we browbeating mods for happening to understand things that you aren't in a position to know and then having the audacity to explain those things when asked by other members who aren't even you. Don't be angry with us because the answer isn't what you would like it to be, we didn't make it that way.

It's not as if we are bullying Alex into making these decisions- he makes all the decisions, we are simply relaying the fact that the proposed scenario wouldn't work considering the way the site is built. It's really as simple as that, it's nothing to get excited over- just sit back, relax, have something to drink, maybe some chips, and wait for Nomad to archive the tabs when his life isn't quite as hectic as it is right now.

thanks for pointing me out, but i didnt actually bitch about how long it takes for tabs to be archived. i have a whopping total of 3 tabs anyways, so its not a problem i run into

I was defending what I said, not directing that to you in particular. The entire gist of my first post was directed at Infinity and anybody who complains about the time it takes to archive tabs. I really don't understand a nihilist who claims nothing matters bitching about how his needs aren't being met by somebody over the internet. I didn't have a problem with anything you said in here until you directed something at me. Had I, I would've singled you out beforehand.

Haha, the way you worded that is pretty funny.

So, what part are you telling me I didn't fully understand?
