Arrakeen Back Online!

Postby Freakzilla » 24 Feb 2009 11:16

http://s10.invisionfree.com/Dune_Forum/index.php?

Arrakeen is open read-only. We will leave it that way for a while for anyone wishing to access their old posts for whatever reason.

Sorry it took so long.

Where's that unicorn banner? :lol:

unless there are plans to revive it of course.


I've got no probs with that, I've given Freakzilla and Cryknife their admin status back so as this site is theirs if they want to mass mail arrakeen members they can.

Sorry sorting all this out took so long but I've either had no net access of irregular net access, all this mess should have been sorted out ages ago.

Well at least now we Orthodox Herbertarians can get back to the task of dealing with the prequelites and since the release of Paul of Dune the new threat posed by the . . . "PoD People!" (inspired by invasion of the body snatchers).

OK, where are Brooke Adams' breasts? :P


Ahem.

Edric, could you contact the InvisionFree people and ask if they would be willing and able to provide an export of the old board database and what format it would be in?

Just curious. ;)

I can tell you know without even asking IF won't, it's just something they don't do, plus even though I'm an Admin, I'm not the person who registered Arrakeen, that was the Baron.

That brings up another issue: have you been in touch with Baron?

Any chance of Her Holiness The Handjob of Gawd getting him involved and reversing things again? Or has he truly fooked off once and for all?

What kind of access do admins have to the database then, none at all? :?

Freak I think you should demand that she remove your reading excerpts. Somewhere she said that if you asked she would do it.

AFAIK I'm not banned, though I won't be checking it.
I meant some minor issues regarding someone BACKSTABBING me and DEMOTING me from ADMIN STATUS. Nothing much to talk about. :wink:

So now it's OK to call P&B names, eh? Or are you planning to demote Freak and the rest as well? Or was it just me you were ever gunning for for whatever reason?

I really don't care except that the ones left on Arrakeen are old; some of the chapters are mixed up, some were done by other people and it wasn't complete.

I was thinking of asking that they take down the old ones from Arrakeen and giving them permission to use the complete ones at Jacurutu, but on the condition that they provide a link to the reading group here. Not out of spite or anything, but because I don't want my name associated with the old, incomplete ones and do want people to use the complete one from here. My goal in doing those reviews was a selfish one. It was to further my understanding of the story and possibly change it based on discussion of my summaries with other members. Some of my views may be too radical for others or maybe completely different. If they can argue their point well, I'll modify the summaries to reflect their input. So it is subject to change without notice.

That actually sounds like a better idea. I vote that you go that route (not that my input matters).

Orald ... how's about you make like Byron and SHUT THE FUCK UP already?

Whatever your past differences, Edric has done something GOOD FOR THE ONLINE DUNE COMMUNITY. Can't you see that and somehow leave your selfish bullshit out of it and let bygones be bygones for even one fucking day or two?

That's a good solution, Freak. They would be fools to say no.

And yet you fail to notice he was the one who started the whole trouble for Arrakeen by appointing your beloved Hyp, over my backstabbed corpse, of course.

So no, I won't shut up. You sure don't seem the type to shut up about something like this. On the contrary, you delight in fighting over trifles with Hyp, so how can you lecture me?

I'll leave all y'all to have fun with ruining her playground, though if that's not the opposite of your advice(or command?) then I don't know what is.

Of course, what's best for me ain't necessarilly best for wise, ol' Chig here. Surely he has only the best of the online Dune community at heart.

Oh, silly me. What was I thinking, expecting an Israeli Jew to let some past grievance die, even for a moment.

We'll be hearing about orald getting kicked out of 'Keen for the next two millennia. :roll:
