    This isnt right man and we dont deserve this. The majority of us is getting punished for something we didnt do. Every chat is gonna have pricks and spammers in it from time to time, thats just how it is, but you dont need to ban all the non vipers from it.

    PS-Thanks FFIC

    Over There.

    I got the answer for you..
    step 1.
    http://www.theplanet.com/dedicated-servers/default.asp
    get your own server

    setp 2.
    http://www.vbulletin.com/
    get your own message board software

    step 3.
    http://www.godaddy.com/gdshop/default.asp
    buy a domain name


    step 4.
    put it all together and run it as you see fit.


    Really and truly this thought.
    is avoidable by not letting people who have nothing to lose into it. The Chat portion of the site is a bonus feature and should be something that is a gift to people who help out Finheaven out.

    I'm sorry I respect you guys for everything you do all the work your putting in to the new FH but it is BS to only allow VIP members into the chat, I do plan to become a VIP once the new FH is ready but until then I get stuck here reading unorganized sentences and only being able to get good conversation out of a few posters that are here. I'm not going to name names but this is very disappointing.

    Just a suggestion because I miss the busy chat....maybe you could come up with a small fee for people who want to use the chat...it would help the site and maybe offset the cost of it.

    Bro to maintain and keep the chat running it is not free. Due to Brothers Celtkin, and FinintheMoon (Ken) nice donation that is still open for the great members here to enjoy. Celtkin has made a decision as to where we are now. I am not saying you bro, but some members think everything should be free, and it just can't be. Brother Celtkin cares more about this site then you know.
    The man is persuing a life long dream of obtaining his PHD, gave up his site forums here, re-formatted it, got the chat room on a dedicated server, working on repairing Finheaven with Brother Muck, and some where in between getting some sleep to do it all over again.

    When you see Brother Celtkin (Mal) around, tell him thank you for the enjoyment you have here now. It could be worse we could have absolutely nothing right now.

    Being a VIP/Premium member doesn't mean you are more smarter then anyone else, it means you care about the great site known as Finheaven to which you have decided to give back to the site to help ensure it's doors never close so all can enjoy.

    My God, the sense of entitlement that people have. :sad:

    Celtkin may do as he sees fit, he puts in the work, he puts in the time, the only thing that isn't fair, is people trying to lay a guilt trip on the man for doing what's best for his investment.

    Do you people go into a store and demand stuff for free?

    I had stated that I do plan to become a VIP when the new FH is up and I am not bashing Celtkin and I appreciate everything you guys do for this site I am just upset that I am no longer allowed to use the chatroom because of douchebags that use it to spam. I was just venting.

    I wasn't trying to call anyone dumb I was just saying some people have really unorganized posts and can difficult to read at times. Again I respect everything Celtkin and everyone else does for this site because without this I wouldn't be able to talk Fins with anyone that actually cares about the team.

    The Chat room software is a real resource hog and we already have had two hosts ...including my original VIP chat room host ....drop us because of it.

    Unfortunately we were dropped by the hosts during or right after games when the load was at its highest.They had no choice because at that paticular time it was taking up more than 80 pct of their total resources.

    We need to restrict this service to paying members.We tried to make it public but it hasnt worked.

    Thanks to bro Celtkin we have the alternate message board now.When we didnt have it the chatroom was our only link to our members.It was a lifeline if you want to call it that.

    BTW The chatroom in FH before it went down was VIP only and it was run on my host.

    Am I the only one that didn't like the chat room? I couldn't keep track of who was talking to who.

    The Future Dr. Mal, you are the man, keep up the great work!

    We have great admins.

    I can't believe anyone would down celtkin. He's worked hard for all of us. This is the only place I can get news about the Dolphins. I've met some great people on here and in the chat room. I can't afford to join vip, but that's not their fault. I appreciate every thing they've all done for me and so should the rest of you. I'm going to miss the chat room alot, but there's nothing I can do at this time. So lay off all these guys and just be glad we have a place to go.

    Here's the new deal ---

    I will let VIP members sponsor up to two non-VIP'ers to chat. Premium members can sponsor up to 5 members. The sponsor will have to vouch for anyone they let in by sending the person's name via PM to an Admin. If the user name or password is compromised, all the sponsored will be dropped and have to be recommended again.

    This is most fair compromise that I can make at this point.

    Goin slow, but thanks. I've come home to Ft. Lauderdale until after xmas, then I'm heading back to Santa Barabra. I quit my job with the firm here, and am looking into opening a Ranch for Children with Disabilities at my late parents house in Cali. WHEW!!! Gottas look forward and change my life since it looks like I won't be getting my leg back functionally. Well, "touche" as they say.. "when life gives ya lemons...." yada yada..... xoxo ;-)

    That is a wonderful idea! I wish you the best with it. I'm starting a Special Education class in Jan. where I have to work with children with disabilities. Its hard work, but very rewarding.

    It will be a Horse Therapy Ranch, so I guess it will be for kids like me, who lost use of or injured themselves (like my leg) etc. Im very excited. Thanx for the support and good luck with your advenutre too!! xo ;-)
