Disappearing AppleNova Thread  

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
There was a thread here which served members of this Forums. It was a useful thread, it was at some level an important thread, but it is now gone, deleted by an administrator (Kasper?) for reasons that are locked away in that person's vindictive mind.

It isn't at all clear to me why people trying to bridge both places should take this sort of immaturity from this place, but we do because we are devoted to the communities that were once one.

The description of the behavioral attributes of the person that deleted that thread keep running through my head, but none of them are particularly nice, so I will keep them to myself.

I agree. I personally view both. I started here when I got my first mac, and continue to read and post here. I also like coming here to read post by members who cross post and those who have not and do not plan to make the move. We are all happy with where we are. Most of us have moved past it and there are those few that are seriously holding a grudge and should let go. If anyone needs the information that was in the deleted post PM me I'll be here all night, unless I get banned for this post .

We have to put the issue between us behind. Be professional. The AN down thread did no harm to people here. Put the split behind us.

Never mind.

I registered here so I could confer with my AN comrades. Please don't lock this thread!

AppleNova is not down, all that's happened is the domain expired. To access AppleNova, follow the instructions here:

Or, if you'd like to talk about the problem with your fellow AN members, go to iChat, click File -> Go to Chat, and type in "applenova" without the quotation marks. Me, omega, HOM, and quag are there now.

And to reiterate in this thread....... (god the whole damn lot of you are tiresome sometimes )


Be quick chester.

Breathe everybody breathe. I was replying to the deleted thread when it was deleted but I was going to say, (until then) that I thought it was very gracious of AI to allow the thread and chide the AN members for not being a little more courteous.

So how about doing that and AI given the circumstances and Jack's recent death, how about if they behave, cutting a bit of slack here. You never know, it might have positive benefits for everybody.

You reap what you sow.

And I've changed the emphasis of where I post because I got fed up with someone here. adda if you think back, I'm sure you'll appreciate the irony of our respective situations.

Is there a way to just type in the ip address in the browser? I know that there should be a way to do it, but when I tried it I got a "There is no website configured at this address" error.

I would like to ask the AI folks for a little lee-way here. I would also like to ask the AN folks to can the jokes and remarks. I personally don't give a rat's ass about what happened here or when. I just want to be able to communicate. If we can get past this as a group, then we will ALL benefit from it!

Please?

Just tried the thing out. It works well! Make sure you make EVERYTHING look EXACTLY like it does in the pretty pictures.

And thank you to AI's mods for leaving this thread open. We appreciate it.

You know you want to.

I do believe this is one of those situations where one can say "A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man."

I moved the original AppleNove thread because of a comment made that was in total violation of posting guidelines. I feared retaliation posts to this and only had a short time to hang around so I took the decision to move the thread to "Gehenna", our spam filled forum.

Thank you Jambo for the explanation.

I hope the powers that be will allow this thread to stay.

Multiple websites exist on that IP address, so it is necessary for the browser to transmit the "Host" header, which can't be done if you just go by the IP address.

Unfortunately, both could be seen as blatently negative and rediculous! Fortunately, I think we have moved on and can now get back down to spewing BS!

Thanks, Jambo! We appreciate your honesty and patience!

hey thanks all....

it has been forever since i have seen a jambo post...


i kinda see the ai/an split less as an able and cain thing and more as a mary kate and ashley at 30 years old kinda thing...

nothing so "final" as killing off a "family member"...more like, "we need a year or so apart because you are driving me crazy, but i still love you" kinda thing

again, thanks

In this case it might be "there there".

The original thread has been moved back. However it's closed because as Jambo mentionned, we did not wanted an open struggle between some members of the two communities.
This thread is here : http://forums.appleinsider.com/showt...threadid=55716

This thread will be updated on request of the AN team, if they have further informations to share.
This thread is also sticked.

Last note : this thread should be closed, because the vanishing thread has ressurected from hell. But by courtesy, we will let it be open at the mere condition that it will stay civil.

Thanks
