Administrative Announcement - All Good Things


Recommended Posts

Thanks for all the feedback on the (potentially) new Dining Guide Format - I put the kibosh on it because I didn't like it (hundreds of dollars, down the drain).

We need people who love (or who want to learn about) London. Our London forum is in dire need of catch-up with Andy Hayler's reviews. It's difficult (close to impossible) for me to keep up with him because I'm so busy doing other things here. 

Anyone wanting to learn, and I mean *really learn* about the geography and neighborhoods of London would be perfect for this. You'll essentially have the entire layout of the city memorized after doing this for a couple of months.

Please DM me if you're interested - I need help here, and about 100 other places.

I apologize for the website being offline - I have some personal things going on right now, and I know that an unmoderated website will quickly spiral out of control. At some point this month and next

I was hoping it wouldn't come to this, but it has. Friends, for over eleven years, I have gotten emails, phone calls, or text messages at least once a week asking me for help. This can range from

Welcome back, everyone, and I'm sorry this took so long. Anything that could go wrong, did; not in terms of the actual website, but in terms of bureaucracy, communication, and things like that. It got

I'll be as simple as possible:

donrockwell.com has never mined or analyzed anyone's activity, and has never sold or shared any member information.

In other words, when you register, what you tell me and Pat is *private*.

(It is always appreciated when members use their real names, either as their member name, or in their signature files - and it really does lend credibility to your posts, especially to new readers who aren't familiar with you.)

There is so much I want to say, but for now I will just say thank you for providing a platform for all of us to be able to have exchanges about everything ranging from where to eat , to the opportunities talk about just about anything. I am forever grateful.

Hey Don, if you make it read only, then you are making it impossible for POTUS participate. He doesn't read. I guess he could always point and say "Ohhhh, look at the pretty pictures!"

It's 12:25am on the 15th. 🤔

When the Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service announced that the federal income tax filing due date is automatically extended from April 15, 2020, to July 15, 2020, Don no doubt changed the effective date of read-only mode to the same date to remain in lock step.

I've had several restaurateurs in trouble turn to me for help.

These (moderated) forums will be open for posting indefinitely. 

Washington DC

Shopping and Cooking

News and Media

Events and Gatherings

Fine Arts Including History and Current Events

The Portal (Open Forum)

If there's anything else people need (subforums, other forums, etc), please write me. As always, anything you write here will be retained, and will always be accessible for people to read - this website is a permanent repository, and is not going away as a source of information.

(If anyone ever makes a "midnight mistake" and posts something they need deleted, just write me - likewise, I can always change your screen name to whatever you'd like, although one thing I wish I did in 2005 was insist on real names.)

Folks, we upgraded tonight to the new version (it wasn't optional), and what you see is what the new Invision Power Board looks like. I'm certain it's going to be better, but like any visual change, it's an initial shock to the system - give it a day or two to let it sink in.

Cheers,
Rocks

Invision has a new feature that automatically archives topics without any posts in the past five years (5 is the maximum setting). I can manually unarchive them, so if you want to post in something that was last updated in 2007 (it happens more than you might think), just send me a PM, and I'll manually unarchive it for you.

They (Invision) also told me that a lot of website owners have written them about this, and they may reverse this in the future (I suspect they will, but it may be a few months). I don't want any thread here to be archived since this is an evergreen website.
