    I am not sure where to post this, so here it is. But I just checked on the name Caveman, which is what I would like to have & that member joined in 2006 & has not one single post. Is it possible to allow me to have that id?? I mean, you don't need an id to lurk, do you?

    Thank you for any consideration.

    I'm sure one of the administrators will reply soon, but I believe hundreds---maybe even thousands join this forum, brag about their smoking powers in a post or two, then that's the last you hear from them---ever. I like "sircave", but I would think you have a good shot at your wish. If not, maybe "Caveman 1" ?

    Or perhaps "The Caveman"

    Hey Sircave,

    I'm sure there are a lot of reasons that the membership roster is not cleansed, but if you sort it by number of posts, you can clearly see that people with 10 posts or less start at page 80. So of the 575 pages of people that have registered, the heavy lifting is done by only a few (there are only 13 pages of people with more than 200 posts).

    I hope the admin could see clear to at least research the activity of the current caveman and potentially let you have it. If not, "The Caveman" is pretty darned good too!

    Good luck.

    You could always use Geico-Caveman...[​IMG] even a caveman could do it..

    Doesn't look like he ever posted and the last time he was online was years before the forum was even founded...

    That is not bad but this person has Never posted. Ever. I feel I deserve it as I asked first. [​IMG]

    Now, I kind of like that. Nice.

    I could be the "Clean Up" admin around here. LMAO.

    Okay....Thanks for the name but um, er, ah, I am only ONE guy. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Yeah, that's what I am talking about!! He was trying to be funny, signed up & then something happened. I hope it was nothing harmful but something happened as this person is not around, I believe.
     
  8. I made a request to get my name changed because anything that it was on was getting censored....even had to redo my Photobucket account in order for it to work111

    HERE, i'LL TYPE IN BY USER NAME "**** bULLARD" AND YOU WILL SEE THE RESULTS....NO ANSWER FROM ANYONE AT ADMIN ABOUT CHANGING IT...JUST GOT IGNORED...SO JUST HAVE TO DEAL WITH IT !!!

    Sircave,

    Send a PM to Brian (Bmudd) or Jerry (Pineywoods) and ask them...that way they see the request and you don't have to wait for them to see this post in the hundreds that are created each day.

    This problem has never come up in the 6 years that we have been online.. i.e. no one has ever asked for another users name that I am aware of.

    I completely agree that if the original "caveman" is not going to use it then might as well let someone else have it.

    I am going to try and contact the other guy and I will post back in a day or so to let you know what I find out.

    D. Bullard,

    You can certainly understand why we would censor that word on a family forum. We have to censor hundreds of words actually and that just happens to be one of them.. I don't remember getting a PM or email or seeing a post on this but then we deal with a lot of crap in any given week and I know that I miss stuff sometimes..

    I will take care of this right away.

    sircave (soon to be Caveman),
    I told you somebody would take care of this for you. I just didn't know it would be "The Man" (Jeff) himself.[​IMG]

    Well Dick Bullard, you are good to go. I have removed this word from the censored list and I sure hope folks don't take advantage of that[​IMG][​IMG]

    I am afraid that my evil twin is not laughing with you Mister.[​IMG] And my fourth personality does not think you are funny either. [​IMG] But the other ones completely agree with you, they are just too afraid of the other two. [​IMG] ROTFLMAO!!!!!!! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]:icon_mr green:[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Don't we all have a couple of other people living inside of us? I think yes. I still like CAVEMAN!!! UGH!!!
     
  19. Seek and ye shall find, ask and it shall be granted.

    Now shut up and smoke something....and give us all qview! "lol, even thought I hate writing lol"

    Glad Jeff has made it all good. I Love this place!

    Jeff,
    I'd give you points for making ALL GOOD for these two guys, but I don't want to look like I'm Brown-nosing the Boss, so I'll just say, "Good Job"!
