I have changed the bevahiour of the "Unmoderated" category: starting today, posted items will only stay there until they are moved to a different category, or deleted. All old/unmoderated items have been moved to "Forum".

I just completed a minor cleanup session on ANN's comments and generic scripts. You shouldn't notice any visible changes, but script execution should be slightly faster now; and optimizing/shrinking code means it will be easier to maintain/expand in the future.

There are a lot of emotions involved in the last week threads. I would like people to calm down a little bit and refrain to post their feelings as news items.
I would also like people to respect more each other. We don't need the personal attacks, insults and so on.
My time to moderate is limited and if these things persist I may have to remove more posts (and to simplify the job full threads) involving trolling, flames, insults and so on.

Thank you for your understanding.

This is just to let you know that I will be on heading to San Francisco tomorrow, for a California trip lasting just a little over a week, and will return on September 15th. I won't be able to check in a lot, if at all, but I'm hoping this won't be necessary (hint :). I'm planning to implement a few changes (both on the scripts and site acces) when I get back. Stay tuned! :)
[Motd] Small updateANN.lu

Here's a small update of what's happening (mostly behind the scenes) at ANN.lu. I rewrote most of the comments scripts last week, and apart from a few bugs already fixed and a few remaining glitches, it seems to work fairly well. The basic version of a trusted user system for signing comments also introduced last week seems to work well, although there's no frontend (or firm decision on how that should look) for general user registrations yet. I'm currently working on a "recently posted comments" script that does, in the first place, allow me to monitor comments more closely, and might later on be made available to trusted visitors or premium visitors (premium users being those who contribute(d) to ANN.lu in one way or another). As for visitor numbers, ANN has this month been serving approximately 12,000 pages a day to between 2000 and 2500 unique IPs in any 24 hour span.

This is just a friendly reminder to all regulars of the comments section that profanity, personal insults and postings that otherwise violate ANN's guidelines can and will be deleted. Today, I implemented code to allow Christope and Teemu to moderate comments, which should ensure stricter enforcement of the posting guidelines and eliminate some of the noise.

I'm also working on a "trusted user" system, that would allow regular visitors to authenticate with me and have their name or nickname reserved. This will be optional. Since this is still work-in-prgress, comments on this subject are most welcome - especially on how the authentication could work.

FYI... I'm currently on vacation, and will only be back home in early March. Until then, moderations will only be made by Christophe and Teemu. (Unfortunately my laptop died, so I need to go to Internet cafes to even have rudimentary web acces. Urgent messages may still reach me, but don't rely on it.)

Dreamhost write: We will soon be performing the last of our datacenter migrations. This migration will take place on Saturday, Jan. 25, between 10:00 PM and 3:00 AM PST (approximately). This will involve physically moving our/your servers from one location to another in the same metropolitan area. Should ANN.lu disappear for a few hours tomorrow, you'll know why.

I'll be at the Amiga + Retro Computing 2002 this weekend, and am looking forward to meeting a number of people I have previously only known by phone, mail, or web forums. If you happen to see me there, say hi. :)
