    To the mods/owners here

    Something that I REALLY don't like about Redszone is this message I see if I haven't posted in a bit:

    Hello Michael Allred it appears that you have not posted on our forums in several weeks. Why not take a few moments to ask a question, help provide a solution or just engage in a conversation with other members in one of our forums?
    Is this really all that necessary? I'll post something when I feel I have something to say, I don't need to be prodded into it when I don't feel like it. Can we please remove this annoying feature?

    I wonder if KronoRed has ever received that message.

    I'm not really sure why it bothers you, it's just a little suggestion to contribute something after you've been away for a while.

    It should say :

    Hi Michael Allred. Did you know that Queen w/ Paul Rodgers has been showing on many PBS stations this month?

    How do you feel about Queen playing Bad Company songs?

    Personally we don't approve, but that's just "us".

    I think it's just a default setting of this type of forum.
    I frequent another internet forum that uses the same format and got the same exact message on the top the page there.

    There's some irony in the fact that you're complaining about the message, yet it prompted you to start this thread.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    I saw them on RAVEHD on the DishNetwork Voom channel. In high def and 5.1. I was skeptical, but I thought it actually worked for them. I kind of liked it.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    The message is not an email, it's built into the template system of the board software, it can't be user disabled.

    The message he's talking about only appears if you haven't posted for a specific period of time.

    Re: To the mods/owners here

    I notice that message came up after was out for a while in Maui.

    I personally liked it. Like a warm blanket welcoming me home. Or something like that.

    But with this message Michael, you've now disabled it.

    All fixed.
