    It has become an annual thing. When more traffic starts to pop up in the regular rooms, Craig will shut down the can. Not only does that keep this site from being sidetracked by a wide range of topics, it chases the regular members out of the can and back to helping folks.:cool:

    No, not yet...Craig was tweaking some things in the software earlier, but this was not his intent. When he comes back & sees what happened, I'm sure he'll go back in & tweak it some more.

    Warning - the ash can requires thick skin at times. Mucho personal opinion being flung around and splattering all over the place.:eek:

    If y'all want to check how accurate your guesses and "feelings" were, here's the deal. I tried to set permissions so that newly registered users could not post there until after they posted elsewhere...and I messed up.

    Now Craig, you know in the computer world that we didn't "mess up". Database error, Undocumented territory, beta test, something, but we never mess up.;lol

    Well, in tech terms, I changed the permissions so that only verified members could do Ashes. Verified members are new members with at least 2 posts. Or, old members who have not been back in a long time....who then post 2 more posts.

    BUT, I think Verified may not include normal members who have been on the new forum since day one. It's all so complicated....so many possibilities.

    I probably should not have even embarked on that journey - it was due to a new member whose first post was in the Can...that is a no-no.
