Procrastination, thy name be…

540 views

I have the day off from my real-life job today, so I was up early to commence coding for the new site. I felt inspired, and things were plodding along. And then I made a fatal mistake. I strayed. I wandered. Three guesses as to where, and the first two don’t count. I’ll offer a hint: it rhymes with “Merry Yo Plum.” 

And per usual; it was a rabbit hole of fun. I can only hope that this place and it’s comment section will provide even a fraction of the good vibes and enjoyment that we all have had for years over at The Number Ones. I’m gonna try really hard to make it so.

Thanks to all who are checking this place out ! So many of you good folks are already visiting, pre-registering*, and chiming in. I appreciate each and every one of you and your incredible support.

* By the way: When you register: I don’t ask for your real-life name or anything private other than your email address, which will remain confidential. This data will never be sold,  traded, or revealed. Ever.) Any registration problems or questions, hit me up at mt58@tnocs.com. 

I’m trying to be very careful not to self-promote over at SG. When tnocs.com is ready from prime-time, I will reach out to Scott and see what he thinks about an occasional mention. That said, if anyone has any ideas on how to best get the word out that this place is a thing, I’m open to ideas.

Lastly: Please consider writing content for this site! Your article will be published front and center, for all the world to see, with the comments raining down like a spring shower, or a high school fundraiser car wash, pick your simile. We even have a special mailbox: Send your proposed stuff or questions about what we’re looking for to: 

submissions@tnocs.com

Over and out for today, friends. Have a great day, and good on you all.

Will we lose points for spelling?

And with the ability to edit, we can change any accidental misspellings that get through spell check.

I am so excited for this new site. I am kind of stuck between not wanting to advertise it so much that we attract the trolls, and wanting to advertise it enough that all of our friends know about it and come on over.

And also excited for the thumbs up capability! Now I have to go back and like everything that’s been posted so far. And we’re starting right out with editing capability! That’s class right there.

Not too worried about trolls… we can always sic mt58 on them. They’ll disappear in a flash!

I have to say, I’ve been really disappointed with the new comments section over at TNO’s: maybe it’s just my laptop, but I regularly get kicked out (and it takes 20 tries to submit a comment), the page refreshes itself, and I have to click on each reply to open it, among other things.

I haven’t read any of Irish’s contributions on the site lately, because I can’t get to the bottom of the comments.

That is the main reason I stopped the top YouTube comments, although for this past week the choices were extremely stereotypical.

Hey! Glad to see lots of familiar faces (so to speak) here already! Thanks to MT, the alchemy man! I’ve got thoughts, you can rate them in terms of importance:

I’m heavily in favor of a small subscription fee, if it means no banner ads. Something from the early internet days I really, really miss is bulletin boards. I’m sure some of you remember those – pages and pages of text, back before banner and other associated ads became so nauseatingly ubiquitous… But I know little about the economics of running something like this, or whether asking, maybe, $5/month from everyone would be feasible. Hopefully someone will share that info (or maybe it’s already been explained, I haven’t even read all the previous entries yet). Also in favor of the idea is my assumption that a subscription fee would repel trolls…

On the profile page, the buttons for Posts and for Comments – that’s golden. I second thegue’s gripes about the navigation issues with the new comments section. Plus, all the collapsed comments make it hard for me to find my few pithy responses and Shallow reminiscences… I had just gotten the hang of ctrl+f!

Ooh, oooh! I nominate Bix to provide us his first hand account of touring Paisley Park over the weekend!!!! That can be a fun official Welcome to tnocs.com tale!

Or as we call it at work, I’m “volun-telling” Bix to share his experience.😏

Been busy with basketball state championship week. And HOORAY for the ladies. They took their first state championship in school history and they did it with an undefeated season (26-0)! Also been working on a project for this site. Hopefully it will be a worthy one.
For all you music and history lovers out there, I highly recommend the new book by Questlove (of the Roots) titled”Music Is History”. He covers many of the discussions we’ve had through the years and it’s a delightful read.
