Mr. Brooks, Congratulations on a TERRIFIC board! The only really bad thing is, that I only found it yesterday!

It is excellent in that the topics are very separated from one another so that I don't have to wade through uninteresting posts. (For some reason most boards mix my interest mentalism with bizarre magic. It's NOT the same, as I'm glad you have noticed!)

Suggestion: In the same vein, I would suggest that reviews are placed within it's group!

If it is possible, (but I understand it may not be) it would be good if it was possible to connect a posting to several groups, so that if I start a thread that concerns several fields it can be found and added to(!) from the various forums.
(I know the messy place alt.magic has this feature). This would of course also be good for the reviews idea above.

Additionally, may I suggest an "Impromptu magic" forum!

Another thing: As mentioned, I only just found this wonderful oasis... and I noticed that the oldest thread in the mentalism section is significantly older than the board itself. Does this mean older threads
"disappear"? Are they archived? (Or was there simply not a forum before the oldest thread?).

One more thing: About the "Secret section", I bet I *can* find info about it somewhere, but still after a brief search I simply have not. There is no topic about it in the FAQ. How do I find/access it?


Best,
Steve Brooks

Matias,
I'm happy you found our magic family, and hope that you, as others have done, will spread the word! Smile

I have not had a chance to check the older threads, but it is possible the thread was made earlier than that forum, then was moved into it.

Please read 'Cafe etiquette' which is located in the upper forums. It explains our rules and the secret sessions criteria.

I'm sure the next time you visit the Cafe, there will be a surprise for you. Smile

Steve,
Recently, I posted a reply to the forum regarding who's the funniest magician.
I cited two magicians from Colon. The first four letters of the last name of the first magician, DIC*SON, were marked out by asterisks. Is the Magic Cafe set up to delete certain words automatically, without any regard to the context? There are many magicians and individuals whose names may have a lewd word contained within the spelling of the first or last name. If you do a keyword search on "Scarlet Fever", you may be surprised as to the name of the individuals who are credited with isolating the germ that causes scarlet fever. My point is, the "Big Brother" meter is a tad sensitive.
Thanks for your time.
Lou
P.S. I don't want to be percieved as a troublesome whiner. The board has a clean, exciting, look and feel. I'm glad I found it and only wish that I had discovered it earlier. Keep up the good work. Smile

Ooops, I must have been distracted by something. I meant the exact opposite, i.e. that the oldest thread in the mentalism
section is significantly more recent than the board itself. Does this mean older threads "disappear"? Are they archived?

Matias, all of the messages that have been posted since the board's inception are here (with the exception of three or four that were lost in the first transfer). At this time, there are no plans to "prune" the older messages. Eventually that may become necessary, but there is plenty of space on the account for several times the number of messages as we have already.

Lou,

we have been working on a solution for that problem, with no luck so far. Please see Gene's post on this subject here:
