  • Sal its pretty easy just go to the entry you want and hit the reply button to reply to them. I hope you guys keep it up - its really pretty cool to hear all the old stories!
  • You guys are in the right place. All you have to do to reply to a topic is hit the "post reply" button that appears at the top of each thread. It will take a couple of days for new threads to get up but as you can see, folks are starting to feel there way around here and there will be plenty of new threads in no time. Welcome!!
  • Subject: Can't stand change

    I do not know what I'm doing. If this goes through it will be a miracle. Danny you know that desert island you're on.... I'm on the other side. Maybe we could do an episode of LOST !
  • Subject: SOUTH BKLYN/PARK SLOPE

    I JUST POSTED SOMETHING AND I DONT SEE IT. I AM ON GILLIGANS ISLAND CAN WE MEET. I HATE THIS BLOG I WANT MY OLD ONE BACK PLEASE, PLEASE ADMINISTRATOR SET UP ANOTHER ONE LIKE THE OLD ONE I JUST HATE THIS EVERYONE IS HAVING A HARD TIME TERRY ANGELO SHERMAN :cry:
  • I see your post, Terry.

    I think you and I discussed the need to do something back when the conversation was up to 1000 comments. There are now 2500 comments, and it was simply no longer tenable to load 2500 comments every time someone viewed the blog. Trust me - this move is going to make it easier to have discussions! Just make sure to hit Submit every time you make a post.

    THIS REALLY REALLY DOES SUCK
  • Subject: Where is everyone?

    This is insane! Just when everyone was comfortable with the old blog everything now is x.?/#@ up! :cry:
  • Subject: BIGGER PROBLEM !

    OK, Terry.....maybe there is a bigger problem. I was attempting to post a reply and suddenly found myself on a website for phone sex (with a picture of some woman in very red lipstick biting some man's lip). Is someone trying to tell me something (in a less than subtle way ?). Seriously, could be a glitch.

  • Terry, "dailyheights," the main administrator of this site, is on vacation. However, I am one of the other administrators and will try to explain the reason behind the change.

    The "Park Slope Back When" thread that you all participated in was causing stress to our computer server, which is used by several thousand people. Every time any person viewed that page, it had to load all 2,500 comments. Most of our pages only display 30 comments at a time, so every time someone tried to use the "Park Slope Back When" page, it was eighty times as much work for the server, which meant that other users saw broken pages or the pages loaded too slowly. We could not keep that going.

    Having separate conversations on a message board is useful because you can break out your conversations by topics--like different streets, events, or people that you are remembering, or your reunion that you are planning. Give it a try!

    It would be easiest if you bookmarked the address for the Brooklyn Back When forum. http://www.brooklynian.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=175 Click on that address and then choose "Bookmarks > Bookmark this page" (or similar) so that you can come back to the list of topics whenever you want.

    You don't have to register to use this site, however, it is easier if you do. On the old blog page, the administrator had to look at each one of your comments individually to tell whether it was a real comment or "spam"--a comment from an advertising computer. That was very time consuming. On this messageboard, each time you post, the site will ask you to type in a code. Advertising computers cannot pass this test (they're dumb!), so this proves that you are a real person posting a real comment. If you don't want to have to type in a code each time, you can register an account with this site instead.

    This messageboard really offers a lot more space for you than the old blog post, and it does so without making our computer server unstable. Please give it a try!

    Terry I am giving the administrator hell. He had no right to stop the blog. He can delete all the comments and we can start over.
  • Subject: Bring Back the Blog

    Terry- We might have to use email from now on. I think everyone has to complain until they restore the blog. This format is horrible. Now we have to be mixed in with every other message board.
  • Fran and Terry,

    Go to the bottom of the page and hit "Brooklyn Back When"

    Then look through all the topics until you see "DAILYSLOPE"

    Go into that DAILYSLOPE topic and stay there. Most people are in that "topic".

    I hope this helps.

  • Hi Everybody,

    Terry has recommended that everybody post in the same thread. Here is a link to that thread where you are supposed to comment:
    http://www.brooklynian.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=45192

    If you have any questions about the board and why the blog just changed, read this post:

    Thanks!
