  1. There was no offense involved, and I wasn't trying to argue the value of moderators or anything like that. I didn't have a whole lot of time to think while writing, so it may have come across in a way I didn't want it to. I very much agree with your point, which i guess is what I Was trying to say. The moderation team here does not take over and create and enforce rules and get power hungry or anything like that, which is something that I am very glad to say. We are all just regular members that happen to help keep the spam away to help keep the community geared towards what it is supposed to be, the MacCast and the Mac community... It is the way it should be and it is the way that I hope that the moderation team continues to operate in the future... if things change, then we have problems!


  2. Zionlion,

    We have a team of moderators here that have worked very hard to protect the community from objectionable content and spam over quite some time. We take a very hands-off approach, leaving almost every topic untouched, unless there is a major problem. The moderators that are in place are here to approve new members, remove spam/adult content, and to be "on call" in the event of a major problem. Thank goodness we have not had any major problems, because we are all here to help each other out. This is an amazing community with amazing members, and the spam is really the only thing that keeps us busy. The less spam that makes it through, the easier it is for the forums to thrive. We are just looking for 1 or 2 more moderators to help with the spam problem, and to decrease the time that new users have to wait to get approved.


  3. I don't think that it would be feasible at this time. I am going to be trying to get in touch with Adam in the next few days to take care of some forum related concerns. I am working hard to get this place back to the best it can be.


  4. oh i didnt even notice that. you couldve just not said anything. ;)

    Yeah, i didn't notice it until the other day. I was looking through and everyone commented at the same time. :P


  5. One more minor error. The time stamp on all comments is the same. I don't know if the time corresponds to the time of the post or the 1st comment or what..Just a heads up.


  6. I installed it and have since uninstalled it. Resource intensive. You also get several other programs installed..Google Updater for example. All in all you have quite a bit of memory and other resources being used. The Daring Fireball article is a good read, it is what made me uninstall the other day. Quicksilver works for me.


  7. Dreamweaver and Rapidweaver are for two totally different markets. If you are a new web developer, dreamweaver won't be your 1st stop (due to price and the required knowledge to use it) Rapidweaver is probably the best web editor for new website creators. IT creates beautiful sites in a fast and easy fashion. I really don't think you can compare the two..They aren't made for the same thing! If you are new and aren't interested in becoming an industry web developer and just need a nice looking site for personal use, then take a look at Rapidweaver. If you want to learn the tricks of the trade, and become a web designer/developer/whatever then take a look at learning dreamweaver.


  8. Hi, You could give member "harrysnewbizzare" a shout as he is offering his services to maccast. I think he may be looking for payment but I also no he is building his portfolio so you could do a deal? Exposure is everything when your starting out ;-)

     

    If its a no then come back to me and i will give you some time :-)

    Thank you very much!


  9. Hey, quick request. I was wondering if anyone who has some graphics skills would be willing to help me out by creating a quick image/logo for me. I'd really appreciate it if someone with those skills could PM me I would greatly appreciate it. I can't pay at this time, but I can plug your website in exchange for the service.

     

     

    Thanks!

  10. is there a way to change the timezone it displays? my clock says it is 4 in the morning when it is only 11 PM while I am typing this message

    Yep. It's in your "My Controls" area under board settings on the side.


  11. Alright, it's been more than a month now, so I feel I should update this thread. The program still doesn't work. I requested a refund, since I can't even search for videos with longer search terms, but have yet to get a response. Has anyone else purchased the app? What are your thoughts?
