ah ha! okay, i'm liking this new lounge! i'm back to being ambercherry after a little help from the loungelady! thanks! woohoo!
Jul 11 2006, 08:20 AM
Crazy. I like, but different. Did everyone else have to create a new password when they logged in?
Jul 11 2006, 08:39 AM
crap. i don't like it. center-justified, double spaced, silly faces, avatars and signatures (that i have to figger out how to ignore) and you can edit your post forever? that sucks. this sucks. sorry *bitching* but it's turned into one of those other websites that i can't post on 'cause it's just too unbearably cutesy and irritating. sigh, i'll miss you guys.
Jul 11 2006, 08:47 AM
Did the 'taking up the whole damn bed' singles thread get eaten? I really liked that one and seeing 'frusturated singles' always at the top isn't as nice.
Jul 11 2006, 08:53 AM
I had to get a new password too, but at least I got to keep my username. This whole center justified thing is annoying!
Has anyone figured out how to ignore trolls yet?
Ooooh i just figured it out-go to "more options"
holy cow- i'm an "advanced user." That makes me feel sooo speeeeeeecial
Jul 11 2006, 08:55 AM
ugh. i'm ignoring all the stupid smiley faces but in their place i get their coding. wtf.
Jul 11 2006, 08:58 AM
pepper, You are seriously not going to leave because the board is like this now, are you? Please don't! Change is good, you will get used to it.
I love my avatar.
Jul 11 2006, 08:58 AM
hey, i just was able to add efilorp onto my "ignore user" list, as well as amazing bass. i don't kow if it'll work yet, but it was so easy! go to "my controls" and it gives you all sort of options-one is the ignore user.
Jul 11 2006, 09:02 AM
I couldn't find amazing bass, but found efilorp and numbnuts.
It is pretty easy.
Jul 11 2006, 10:01 AM
I agree that the lnew ounge is a bit busy , but you can totally customize that. Right now, I'm enjoying checking out the avatars, etc., but eventually I'll probably change my settings so that I'm just reading clean posts.
Jul 11 2006, 10:09 AM
Oh this is absolutely fantastic! I love it! Still pink too, and new fun stuff, I cannot wait that I can block the tr*lls.
Jul 11 2006, 10:54 AM
Is there a thread for those who work with animals? Veterinarians, vet techs, shelter employees and regular volunteers, trainers, dog walkers, etc.
Jul 11 2006, 11:04 AM
There used to be a thread called "I do house calls" in working girls - the vets and vet students hung out with the medics in there. Otherwise, try "Bustie's best friend" for doggy stuff - it's in Friends and Family along with the other pet threads.
Hmm, can I restart the med/vet thread? Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease?
Jul 11 2006, 11:07 AM
ok. so. wait. if you put someone on ignore, you can't see their posts?god, this is going to be soooo tempting ....
no wonder you've all been clamouring for an ignore feature!!!
but do they know that you have them on ignore?
Jul 11 2006, 11:26 AM
mando - no, they don't. BUT: if someone quotes them, you will be able to see any quoted post, it won't be hidden.
Jul 11 2006, 11:26 AM
I want to thank everyone for their vibes...the meeting on Friday went well. I think we are on the road to discussing new funding for womens' centres to provide services....not as much as before, and not for everything we used to do, but it will be a start.
Jul 11 2006, 11:36 AM
yea! new lounge!
i had a little trouble logging in, but once i changed my password everything seemed to work. my profile pic has even automatically shown up as my avatar. that's been my pic for years, but i'm not sure i want an avatar. hmm... i'll have to think on that one for a bit.
looking forward to trying out all the new features. this is the same as the bpal boards, so i'm somewhat familiar with them from there. the pm function is way more advanced. you'll love it. ignoring should be nice, too.
doodle- glad to here things went well! i'm sure you did a great job negotiating.
Jul 11 2006, 12:02 PM
Oooo! Swanky new boards.
I guess I'd better introduce myself. Formally miss_jane, now punkerplus due to coddamn inability to log in!
Otherwise its all good
Jul 11 2006, 12:20 PM
Hey miss jane, same thing happened to me. Just droppin' by to tell everyone, I used to be ginger kitty. Even though I'm snippy about some of the kinks, I'm still excited about the new software. Let's see what happens......
Jul 11 2006, 12:23 PM
Phew! I thought the same was going to happen to me for a mo there! I got through by just changing my password though.
Good thing, 'cause I get to stay an 'advanced member'. Woohoo!
Jul 11 2006, 12:36 PM
YAY!!!!!! Finally, I get to be myself. I didn't want to be a newbie!
Jul 11 2006, 12:49 PM
Whew! I finally made it in w/o having to change my name. I am feeling grumpy about adjusting to the changes, but I'm happy that our landladies are trying to make the lounge work better.
Jul 11 2006, 12:51 PM
Ok I have been informed by an admin person(?) that my account (miss_jane) does still exist.... but I kinda can't be bothered since I went through the trouble of creating this one.
Just to let you all know it isn't the elves fault. Its my own dopey fault.
Jul 11 2006, 01:16 PM
Umm, anyone else having problems editing their posts?
Jul 11 2006, 01:22 PM
No, I am too funnybird. Also when I used their handy "make posts pretty" reply box it didn't work and now I can't edit it.
Jul 11 2006, 01:57 PM
For some reason, if I need to post twice in a row (thinking, of course, that I can't edit), when I click either "fast reply" or "new reply," it seems to add my post to my previous post!! But I still can't edit that particular post.
Jul 11 2006, 02:43 PM
I am not sure yet. Don't really like the centered posts, to be honest. And I miss the lounge! But hey, I'll get used to it, I suppose.
I had some trouble with my username & such too, btw.
And Doodle: good news. You go girl!
Jul 12 2006, 10:41 PM
W00t! We're back! Again!
YAY Bust Elves! Thank you for listening to us!
Jul 12 2006, 10:51 PM
Yay!!!! The lounge is back!!!! Thank you!!
Jul 12 2006, 10:53 PM
Raise your hands if you have a Lounge dependency issue.
*raises hand sheepishly*
Jul 13 2006, 05:35 AM
My name is GGG and I am a BUSTaholic.
Jul 13 2006, 06:53 AM
*the shy girl in the back of room raises her hand*
I have been going through Bust withdraw!
Jul 13 2006, 07:29 AM
hello...my name is pixiedust and I'm a Bustaholic.
I couldn't stand it last night and called Roseviolet to tell her alll the things I had been wanting to Bust about!
Jul 13 2006, 07:47 AM
Yeah, well, I've just wandered in here by accident, I'm not like the rest of you....I don't have a Bust problem. I just like to Bust every now and then.
I could stop tomorrow if I wanted....
Jul 13 2006, 01:51 PM
Doodle, I PM'ed you...
Jul 13 2006, 02:16 PM
Thanks, dusty, I got it and replied!
1. We admitted we were powerless over the Lounge--that our lives had become unmanageable.
2. Came to believe that a Bustie greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of BUST as we understood Her....
Jul 13 2006, 04:22 PM
I am bunnyb and I too am a bustaholic.
It has been 0 minutes since my last fix.
Jul 13 2006, 05:14 PM
It's Ohmaude here, or Maude77 as I was before the prehistoric dingoes. The new lounge has me all excited again. So after months of lurking, I feel like posting!! Hi!
Jul 13 2006, 06:17 PM
I'm a bustaholic too! I'd suggest starting a bustaholics anonymous thread, but that could defeat the purpose...
Jul 13 2006, 06:58 PM
I think I might be even more of a bustaholic now that I can put certain tr*lls on "ignore." Ahhh.......
*senses the bustie collective simultaneously relaxing into their chairs*
Jul 13 2006, 07:05 PM
My BUSTaholic tendencies have led to great people in my life. Love me, love my BUSTaddiction.
Jul 14 2006, 07:39 AM
Due to my BUSTaddiction, I very nearly got BUSTed, while BUSTing at work. Its a slippery slope.
Also I noticed retail hell has been swallowed up, any objections to me starting it again (also any witty add ons to the name?)
Jul 14 2006, 08:05 AM
Margot, is CLEARLY in BUST DENIAL.
DENIAL is NOT a river in Egypt, Margot.
It is okay, we are all here for eachother.
Jul 14 2006, 09:31 PM
I hope I'm in the right place...I'm going to restart the Fla.Busties,Vintage Busties, & Swap Me Beautiful threads & start a new one about obsessions/compulsions/collections, which totally fabulous Bustie Scarica helped me name "Toys In the Attic." Whadja think?
Jul 15 2006, 11:43 AM
Some questions about the new board:
- Is there a way to search for posts by a member, like you could on the old board?
- Is there a place that has all the formatting information? Bust was the only board I really posted on, so I'm only used to the old formatting here- I don't know all that HTML stuff.
- What do the icons next to the topics mean, the ones that are a pink box, with a white "piece of paper" in them- there's the martini's, the martini's on fire and these.
Jul 15 2006, 12:37 PM
bustaholics anonymous. not me, nu-uh. no.
not at all.
it's only the first thing to come into the address box.
polly, if you go to the front page, and go right down to the bottom, I think it tells you what the icons mean. and you don't need html if you use firefox or ie and the "new reply" button. (qspice! where are you!?). I think.
Jul 15 2006, 02:03 PM
This pink spangly newness is blowing my fucking mind oh my god!!!!
Jul 15 2006, 05:42 PM
I've looked at the spot where it shows what the icons mean, but there's still one I'm not sure about. I notice in the "pinned" threads, there is an exclamation point beside the martini icon, but in one thread, which is not pinned, there is a question mark beside the martini icon. Anyone know what the question mark is for?
Fuck, I'm in love with the "ignore" function.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, oh Goddesses of BUST!
Jul 15 2006, 06:14 PM
Yeah, the icon legend has 4 different martini glasses, 2 poll icons, a locked icon and moved topic icon. No explanation for the one with the page.
Doodle, if you click on "More Options" under the reply box, it shows all the smilies- the question mark icon is part of the post icons- I think it's for when people start new thread, they can use one of them to indicate the mood or purpose of the thread (so a question mark would be for someone looking for an answer to a question.) Maybe you can use them on individual posts, too , not just when you start a thread?
Jul 15 2006, 08:07 PM
The little page is if you've posted in that thread. Light pink and there's been no new replies since you last checked and bright is if there's new posts. It took me some time to sort that out and it's weird that it's not part of the legend.
