Update About The Bastardly

Once again, thank you for bearing through all the bullshit that comes along with a migration to new software that runs the site. As many of you know, we’ve tried our luck @ this many times over the years, but always failed (miserably). This time it’s looking a little better.

NEW ACCOUNTS!
We can’t stress enough about creating your own account on the site. For those of you comment without a Bastardly Account, all your comments will post under “Anonymous Bastard,” so please-please become a Certified Bastard today! Our goal is to build the most Bastardly Community on the Internet, so please help us.

NEW FEATURES ARE COMING!
Just as soon as we get things working properly, we’re planning to add many new features that will help you track everything from recent comments on 5 year old posts to even where your favorite Bastards are commented the last few days. Basically, our intention with the additional features is to help you breeze through your workday even faster. If you have feature recommendations, please address them over here & we’ll do our best to include them.

And, while you all wait for things to get better, BECOME A BASTARD TODAY!!!

Your feedburner rss feed stopped working 3 days ago. The RSS link you've got on the front page now is about 20 hours behind on current posts and is only sending out headlines, no content or photos. Can you bastards fix this? Thanks

man, this is so wrong...the fact that you have to approve each and every comment...this isnt bastardly at all...if you are doing this to avoid spammers, there is a better solution because # of spammers are a lot less than the # of commentors...just delete comments posted by spammers, determine their ISP and block them

Fair enough Moe.

anymore issues?! please don't hold back, damn it!!

Cool that there have been some more additional info sections added guys.

Um, shouldn't the 'Your Top 10 Hottest Women List' actually be 'Your Top 10 Hottest Women/Men List'....?

I fucking cracked. I couldn't take the anonymous bastard thing. I want this waste-of-time-site to be a place where people can come on, bullshit, leave---and probably never come back to again.

So, all names are being taken now & the field where you enter your site address will soon disappear. The main catch when you don't join is the fact that your comments will be moderated (until we figure out a solution to our main spam worries).

The Bastardly categories need some cleaning. I see you've only got 'Vanessa Hudgie' up there. Acually I think you guys had more yesterday - what's up wif dat?

We def also need Bai Ling, Stumpy, Chocolate Stumpy, Petra, Candice, Miranda, and Rach B categories!! Oh yea.

Good Job.

PS....how about a BLOTD link on the main page too? its your most unique feature, and it was cool that it was on the front page you could just click it and it went backwards from the newest one.

im pretty sure its in the links when your IN a thread, but i dont see one on the main page when you 1st come on.

Phillip McCracken

speed is good. loads faster.

and the comment things should be on one page, so put it at the max, if its 300, its 300, ive been here a while and i dont think ive seen TOO many threads over 300 posts. there is SOME, but, it looks like the max average is what? around 130-140?

everything else seems good since you added the search bar on the main page..

id still like to click on a name and go RIGHT to a link as opposed to a profile, but, eh, whats it? 1 extra click?

its no big thing honestly, not something thats a "Major" issue.

plus i like the addition of a click to page thing as well.

For the people still having trouble registering, I would suggest that you keep trying. I tried to register on Friday but the email never came. I tried to register again later on Friday but it said my email and username were already taken. I tried registering again on Saturday and the email came pretty much instantaneously without any mention of the username or email (I didn't change either one from the day before) being taken.

we're going to set it to the color that it was before.

thanks for all the input. more more more!

i agree about the comment background colour thing. it doesn't look cool.

shit looks like its running on ms-dos. the old comments looked nicer.

1. How is the speed?

Good. I haven't noticed a difference.

2. Number of comments on the page. I can have up to 300. Is 90 fine or should we increase it a bit to 150?

90 is fine with me! We'll see what the other folk say.

3. Any other concerns that you guys wanna address? This is your chance, damn it!!!

Nope it's kool

Maximum comments should be 300 per page.

I don't like having to go to page 2 etc.

Make the 'input format' choice persistent(!) Ex. right now one has to select 'filtered' each time one posts.

Make the background colors for posts the same they were before (shaded).

In white, it makes it harder to read, and doesn't look as kewl.

And keep the 'anonymous bastard' thing - makes it easy to just not read something not posted by a blue-named member (spam etc).

Oh and Free Bai Ling!

I swear, the password thing is supposed to be instantaneous!

1. did you enter the correct email address?

2. did you check your spam folder?

Moelicious

hah. thank you :-)

I got that on my list.

please chime in w/ what else is screwing with you people...

Anyway, on to more important things:

1. How is the speed?

2. Number of comments on the page. I can have up to 300. Is 90 fine or should we increase it a bit to 150?

3. any other concerns that you guys wanna address? This is your chance, damn it!!!

dude, the website url thing works a different way.

Anon bastard thing is still up in the air. As soon as we figure out spam issue, we might bring back the names.

hang in there, anonymous bastards!!

Plus, who really gives a shit what your name is on the Internet? We're all anonymous regardless of whether your name is Whorebag, Cindy, Beautiful Hottie, or Fuckface---all of you guys are nameless bastards to me.

Ew. Okay, what is the point of making my name go to a page that tells you my blog/website instead of going directly there? That seems to be the new trend with blogs: make people create accounts and then give them a "page" on the site with whatever minor information they gave you when they registered. This isn't MySpace....

testing again. Apparently I registered but still had to collect my password from my email and log in.

I like the changes so far. It took a little effort to get registered but not having to type in my name and email address every time I want to post is really nice. Also the quicklink categories are a really nice touch. You should definitely keep the anonymous bastard thing because this is the best site out there so if you don't want to take the time to register, who gives a sh*t who u r?

Could use more Swift and Bell though. And it's not like anyone paid me off to say nice things but if you'll excuse me, my stack of gold bars fell over again. =)

keep the annon bastard thing. it might keep people away from the site that are just here to cause a problem. it will give people the chance to do the shit i said in one of the other threads, like people trying to start shit and then coming back with there real name and whine and bitch it wasnt them LOL.

but i dont care. it will show how pathetic they are.

the space break thing, i was putting in HTML code to make it happen last night

What's everyone's take on the Anonymous Bastard thing?

Should we keep it? Ditch it?

So I see you guys fixed the name length thing.

Thanks for reminding me about the Profile Access thing. You should be able to click on other peoples names now. As far as guitarists go, you named a lot of the good ones but I'll tell you right now the best shredder in the world is Buckethead. Props to da bucket! Check him out.

thats cool that you know the Rhodes Family. i remember growing up when "Tribute" came out his mom seemed like she was SOOOOOO nice, and that they were close.

it must feel indescribable when you lose a child, ive never gone through that, but it must be even harder when you are so close with them.

Randy seemed like a really nice down to earth kinda guy too. i still remember thinking how awesome randy seemed when i saw a specific picture of him i believe is in Tribute, the one with him and his dog.

EVH may have had a great impact, but, you cant hear acoustic guitars in any type or metal WITHOUT thinking of what Randy started with Dee.

Like SRV, Randy NEVER got the chance to fulfill his potential, and as someone who has tried to play guitar in the past, you cant help but think of the sheer impact he WOULDVE had on modern guitar playing, look at the impact he HAD, i know its never good to say "What If..." but, man, Randy, such a loss to music.

Can't disagree with you there. I happen to know his whole family, he learned everything from his kickass old man.

Stevie Ray Vaughn and Dimebag are other fine choices.

Man, I can't sleep but at least I can laugh a little bit: the Adriana Lima thread is absolutely hilarious with this anonymous bastards thing.

about Hendrix, not bad, but not one of the best tho. interesting to listen to for sure, can even say a bit of an innovator, but, i think that he gets overrated alot. the 6 i mentioned plus EVH are a good 7 for a top 10. maybe even put Townshend in there too, while not the BEST, like EVH, i think he (and teh who) were a key piece of the evolution of rock music/guitar. townshend basically took rock, and added lots of shit that shouldnt have been there, IE weird odd chords no one used before, and LOL possibly since, in rock music, and made it work.

oops forgot to add...BEST Guitarist EVER...All around. Jeff Beck. guy gets sounds out of a guitar that people cant do with effects pedals.

not one of my FAVs but my personal pick for best None the less.

and nah, thats ok. i wont be going into details about my life. appreciate the offer to talk about it tho.

Phillip McCracken

best guitarists EVER IMHO...

Sheer Emotion-SRV

Sheer Skill-Randy Rhodes

others that i happen to think kick shit

Freddie King

Dimebag

Robert Johnson

and i wont be disagreeing with Eddie. while i think Randy was better, Eddie was a pimp and represents modern evolution of the guitar player

sorry i must apologize, my last comment wasnt ALL together true. The Bastardly makes my life hell at times. those times when i have to stare at WhoreRaats ugly manly face, man, that women is so nasty, looking at her is TORTURE :)

#31 hm. well, do an internet search for who famous died on that day, and see if it matches the name of anyone that happens to be the most annoying and childish person that comes around here

#32 hate to let you in on a secret, well, its NOT a secret as ive said it quite a few times, but again, you need RIF, so what can i do but keep saying it...my life already IS hell. nothing you are gonna say or do is gonna make it worse. so keep trying, at least NOW you can "hide" under "Anonymous Bastard" and them come back with your real user name and whine and bitch and cry up a storm how your being attacked for no reason and blamed for shit you didnt say. we all know your games. you arent fooling ANYONE. so good luck with that. heres a box of kleenex for your first bitching session, and, the worlds smallest violin playing JUST for you in the background while you dry your tears...sniff sniff...boo hoo...

#34 Eric Clapton shouldnt be played at ANY volume. so, im feeling for you.

I wish I COULD be sleeping right now as well, but some people upstairs think Eric Clapton should be played at maximum sound. Gross.
