  3. - Have some great ideas on how to improve and make GSC useful in a post FB world? Want to help? Know your way around systems like wordpress? Post here! - Looking for people who understand the online world in a professional setting.. like posting content through a CMS like wordpress, or maybe you've done some content moderation, or maybe you are decent at HTML/CSS/PHP blah blah. - Maybe you have a few hours a month to help? - Post ideas here. Some ideas I've heard include a comprehensive directory of Facebook groups, better video gallery, etc.
  4. I check and pay the bills for the site, make sure there isn't yet another virus or malware. The truth is that a lot of people prefer to have small talk and party coordination posts through Facebook now. And yes, a lot of the people who pushed the art are older now. But I do pick up the glowsticks every now and then for sure. I have to kind of plan for parties way in advance, and work often gets in the way. In the past EDM was kind of a sub-culture. It's now fully integrated into mainstream culture. There's a lot more awareness and I have a hard time meeting people who haven't been to an EDM event. I don't think it was the drama that pushed people away-- I think glowsticking.com did its job. I don't see a lot of crewz and shit now. That battling culture kind of just faded away. Now glowsticking reminds me of late 90s and early 2000s, before everyone rushed in. When I see a new glowsticker at a party, it's genuinely surprising and pleasing. Just like before. All the veterans are still around. It's crazy difficult to keep trying to push the art-- now I just feel more relaxed-- like I don't HAVE to glowstick. That paradoxically makes me enjoy it more. In short, I still got great love for GSC and glowsticking.
  5. Well, Wes has a kid now. I posted a lot for almost 10 years. I think that's pretty good. But sometimes you got responsibilities, son. I suspect most other people that are older have this sort of thing going on. I see a lot of people who were mental fuckups 5 years ago doing real well now and it makes me happy. I'm working my fucking ass off too. Career is different even for someone like me who will willingly work 80 hours a week when you get promoted to upper management. Now I have to do well or people get fired and their lives ruined for a bit.
  6. Yay, holiday time and can work on this more. Maybe I can get some time to practice. I think I got the spam problem fixed for the most part, do you guys agree?
  7. Yup, implemented the latest in capcha technology. try registering for an account and you'll see the test. working on skin design, etc now. this one was only 15 bucks and it's pretty fucking clean.
  8. A few new changes to help fix this. Upgraded invisionboard to the latest version, which comes with a pretty cool anti-spam test. you basically get an image that you have to put back together. Log out of GSC and try and register now. Also, when you report someone as a spammer, all their posts gets temporarily unapproved, which should help with clean up. Better skin is coming soon, but damn I do have to say the latest skins are pretty darn clean so it'll be a hard decision which might take me some time. ideally i'll find something that has both a darker and lighter version
  9. Okay, I think everyone should be working correctly, at least in a default mode. ASIDE FROM THE LOOK AND FEEL, how is it working right now?
  10. Well that took awhile. Had to buy the latest version, and then upgrade everything. Still working on this. yeah, we can't just open up access to the front-page. then anyone could just post. but maybe it could be redditstyle, I don't know. i'm working on upgrading the site right now. i'll get to everyone's concern once we get more shit working
  11. oh darn, we still have kids who have to prove their worth in a dance circle?
  12. Cody you could just post that to the front page, no? like.. on glowsticking.com
  13. will fix later What kind of major changes could there be?
  14. shit. not sure what i did. are you guys seeing this?
  15. yeah, that's a really functional layout. very streamlined.. hrm yeah, that's a really functional layout. very streamlined.. hrm Keep the ideas coming, or any thoughts, of any kind, just type it here. I need to study this the next few days and yeah, personalization and stuff makes stuff fun and it's what makes this unique, right? Okay. Will not get rid of those. I'm typing fast here so sorry if I skip thoughts,. @aqua i agree, people should be able to maintain their individual type stuff. that's worth keeping
