    Nice widget. Must I have the Bee Gees loaded to use it?   ;-)

    • I tied to cooperate with Adclose by creating plugins for him. He didn't keep his end of the deal. He tried to scam and intimidate me in a very low way. I lost much time and attention to this person. This was before I heard of his scams. He earned the honour of being the only client banned from Elggdev.com.

       

      I hope at least people who read this page will not have to deal with Adclose.

    • Vazco ;-) Dlaczego nie zapytasz mnie, po pierwsze? Kewl zwrócił się do mnie kilka tygodni temu do pracy wtyczki. Ale kiedy powiedziałem cena $ - Stwierdził, że "za drogie"! Więc przestałem;-O

      ( Vazco ;-) Why did you not ask me first ? Kewl contacted me several weeks ago for PlugIn work. But when I told the price $ - He said "too expensive" ! So I stopped ;-O )

    • as his long suffering gf and partner of over 12 years, i can speak with some authority on this matter.

      my response:

      you quote very very old information that was never taken offline including just one poster in a forum who did not understand the concept. the posts you quote were never posted by adie. someone has been trying to stir things quoting old domains.

      no-one had to join yma to join carialert. however, it was funding carialert.

      many of those websites have been taken offline before and since adie's breakdown.

      just like big hits was funding codeamber.org

      in the usa there is a different approach to fund raising. i notice you failed to mention mr closes' 24/7 alert monitoring. and the fact he did not charge the authorities anything to distribute/edit alerts, unlike others we could mention.

      nor did he quibble about contracts running out when asked to issue an alert (like some we could mention).

      bbc broadband did have a list of partners, in the old days of their partner program. and as kewlbrits.co.uk was a visp for abel internet, both abel and kewlbrits were listed. in addition abel and kewlbrits were allowed to link to video content.. the forerunner of the iplayer.

      YMA is not a scam. it is a legitamate safelist hosting business. and you do not have to join kewlpost at all.

      the so called quote of phil's regarding kewlpay is false. mr close never posted that item.

      i grant you, mr close can be a bit forthright in his views and had very very high standards of himself and others before his breakdown. i suffered more than once.

      he didn't seem to understand that although he might be passionate about helping others in a particular way, there are those in this world who may not be quite so passionate about his way as he was.. or cant understand how or why.

      phil, and the entire elgg community, do an enormous amount of good works. 

      despite the times i tried to get him to understand, adie failed to see any of it. bulldozed his way through and got peoples backs up then wondered why he didn't get anywhere. even i left him for a while.

      he could have had a lot of help here if he had just learned a bit of diplomacy. we couldn't afford the work he wanted done at the time. but that was no excuse for the way he responded to the kind offers of developers prepared to do the work.

      i am ashamed of his actions toward many people. and i know, as he recovers (diagnosed as manically depressed, bi polar and drugged up on lythium) he is ashamed and hugely sorry.

      and so all i can do is offer this joint apology, from adclose and myself, for his past behaviour.

      btw, mike, adie did keep his end of the deal (in the end -and we apologise). and Drhup? i don't recall seeing that response from him to you, but we apologise. i do recall i contacted you, was left hanging in the wind and forced to find other developers (including one who started doing things for us for nothing but has since been earning several thousands of pounds from us thanks to the demise of adies father at the start of this year).

      well, merry christmas. 

      sian

    The very basis of social structures is very easily understood by learning it from the Vedic culture. There are naturally 4 social orders in every society, and of course, in any social networking environment. Highly Intelligent or Brahminical...

      they're called "gurus" ;-)

    • Yes, anyone who is really advanced in a field of knowledge, being highly intelligent, he understands the importance of helping others who are not yet there. Thus the highly intelligent share by teaching others. They are the head of society. Just like Dave, is the head of Elgg in this little example.

      They would be the "Super Administrator", can perform any action within a social group, because of wisdom, they are qualified, and every single action is beneficial to everyone.

    • We have been kicking around the idea, or actually the requirement, of different roles or categories of users with site privileges according to their demonstrated competence. Most (the 80%) can only read and respond to posts, and update their profiles. The higher levels get additional privileges, especially content generation, as they learn how to be responsible community members.

      What we don't want is to make everyone artificially equal, or have the same privileges. We have very clear standards and specific directions that we want to encourage our users to grow toward. So we are implementing roles and a karma point system that grants more privileges to active users, and can also penalize them for spefific breaches of community policy. Also we are considering how to emulate the instructional functions of Moodle within Elgg, so our courses will be on the same platform as our social network.

      Fortunately Elgg's architecture is flexible enough that this is possible without extensive customization. Doing the reverse (implementing social networking functionality in Moodle) would be a nightmare.
