Heh. The Prophpbb people responded. Somewhere along the way, this board must have "banned" the Google 'bot, which he thinks may account for the message.

I have mixed feelings.

Guess what: Gloogle is still (or again) showing "You have been banned" under the search listing.

Here's another problem with this forum: Its almost impossible to search previous posts. For instance, when trying to find out if anyone here had previously done a review of P2, I got the following result:

The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: p2.

Needless to say, the idea that "P2" is a word, let alone a common one, is just absurd.

Apparently there's some configuration issue with PHPBB searches which makes it so the cache of known words has to be periodically flushed, or something. There's also some kind of parameter which adjusts how sensitive it is to common words, or so I vaguely understand.

Meanwhile, I have added a BMMB link to the nav area of capejeer.com so it will show on all reviews, and anyone who has a semi-popular review site should do likewise. Since nobody else has, I think I'll go ahead and make a "like"able Farcebook page for the board.

If you are on Facebook, hit the following page with a Like, and maybe post content in it, such as linking to reviews you write here. If anyone is interested in helping maintain the page, I will start granting access so it can be a community effort that doesn't depend on me.

Yee ha - the page is being liked by some names of legend, like Amelia Mangan and even Freeman Williams.

Now who wants to be a backup admin?

I'd be willing.

Fyi to anyone interested: apparently I have to friend you first before I can grant rights.

And even if you do friend them, it might not work. I tried for years to give my drummer's old girlfriend admin powers on my band's Facebook page (seeing as she was basically our de facto booking and promotional agent for a while), but the system refused to recognize that she was on my friends list.

I'm never surprised by stuff on Facebook that has random bugs and unpredictable behavior. From what I've heard, the programming culture there is, like, trying to recapture the magic of college hacking, so they encourage impulsiveness, late night overwork, and primitive tools.

It took me several tries to make Mike an admin. It helps if you're on a desktop computer and not a phone. (SSW has taken to hogging my desktop.)

Apparently it's also possible without friending if you have their email address, as known to farcebook.

Looking up this forum, I got this result on Google:

Board index - ProphpBB
bmmb.prophpbb.com/
You have been permanently banned from this board. Please contact the Board Administrator for more information. A ban has been issued on your username.


Ever since I made the initial posting here over a year ago, at least 3 members who commented on this thread have since stopped looking this place up: El Santo, Icrywolf & Preacher Quint. Meanwhile, we have not picked any new long-term members. It would appear that this forum is in a state of decline until this problem can get fixed.

What's really strange though is that I was under the impression that this problem was fixed.

It was, I think, at one time. I don't know the details of what caused that Google issue...

I've been tip toeing around Billy crashing on the couch. You can be a grump every year or so when you wake up and post.

Nah, I'm still here. I've just been too busy FREAKING THE MONKEYWRENCH OUT over current events these past few months to have much mental bandwidth available for chatting about B-movies.

But you must admit, Santo, that current world conditions are not unlike a B-movie brought to life.

I don't know what became of Icry, but I have the impression that Preacher Q graduated from college and had to log off and get a life. :cry:
