  1. Hi all. New chrome for October 2019! We have moved house but all the old threads and posts came with us - was a big van. No more crazy tech errors as we have upgraded the backend of the forum and should be good till 2077 now...
  2. Wraiths story - I deleted the two additional threads: ---------------------------------------------------------- The man woke up in a darkened hallway sitting on his ass back against the wall. He hurt all over. He tries to stand once but the combat armor he's wearing is just to heavy for him. After a few seconds he tries again and with help from the wall he is able to stand on his own until the dizziness hits him. After a moment it pass's and he begins to walk down the hallway towards the light, stumbling once because somethings wrong with his left foot. As he get's closer to the light
  3. Well as people will have been able to tell it went really well. Not. and we are not out of the woods yet but wee are running on the new servers. I just have to go and tweak loads of things to make them work now. - If you can see a load of errors at the top of the page - thats what I am trying to sort out first. Any other new issues you come across please let me know via PM.
  4. We are moving servers as the one we are on is past it and everything is being upgraded - bigger fatter faster more. So I will be shutting down the site for a short while at some point in the next few days - possibly even tonight. If you see a message saying the website account is suspended then that will be DNS servers at your ISP with the old IP information but I am doing some testing on other websites to make sure that the transition is as smooth as possible.
  5. Comp I think you have a balanced view on the ethos of the site. You have my support.
  6. OK - I just added a new forum under general where we can move threads from General chat that are contentious. Lets try and keep religion and politics out of General - move them into the smoking room and if they get out of hand in there then slaps and bans should be handed out. Question is is this the right approach - as moderators i woudl like your views and suggestions.
  7. This site is about Cyberpunk culture and gaming - not about Real Life but as in any community people getting together will occasionally find that others views are not in line with theirs. We ask that you keep discussions civil and mature - that has always been a trademark of these forums. We will close or even remove topics where they get out of hand - where that line is is down to the moderators and not for you to try and find. Please respect ALL who post on the VftE forums and their views.
  8. I see he ha posted back stating he will tone it down or as Camp has suggested make them more relevant. He is keen I will give him that and youthful exuberance can't be a bad thing so lets see how it rides out. If necessary we could set up a separate forum for non CP2020 chrome.
  9. Looks like the new security measures we put in place to stop the spambots have worked so I have turned back on the ability for all members to post new topics - new members had to reply to several topics before they could start a new one.
  10. You could ask me to update the software we use - its 5 years old now! However I am taking the stance of if it ain't broke...
  11. OK Good news! I have just updated the registration form with a couple of modifications. One will currently stop spam bots dead in thier tracks and if they ever figure this out then the second will immediatly flag to me that they are a spam bot or cannot read (its a good filter either way!). I have another trick up my sleeve as well at the moment but I will not introduce it unless things don't get any better. Fingers crossed we should see a great deal less naughty activity! This is what we are up against: http://www.icontool.com/fp/ http://www.getafreelancer.com/projects/Dat...ve
  12. There have been a great deal of spam 'attacks' on our community and we have had to bring in some seemingly harsh preventative measures. Whilst this might seem onerous to you it does ensure that the quality of our community is kept at the highest levels. When you register you will be required to click a link in an email we send to the email address you sign up with. Please don't forget to do this else your new account will be automatically deleted. When you have become a member you will only be able to post to other peoples topics - you cannot start any of your own. Once you have made
  13. You will notice our member numbers have decreased dramatically. We have pruned a lot of accounts that have not posted ever to the forum and we will asking new members to join into the community and post or expect their accounts to be deleted. Its a bit harsh but its the best way to stop the spammers and keep the quality of Views from the Edge.
  14. Guys - sorry I have not been so attentive - today is my first day off work for 19 days in a row and most of them have been 12 hours plus. I picked up suggestions recently that spammers are now paying teams in third world countries to log into forums and post - its very cheap and very effective. There is a new major version of the forum software available now and I was just waiting for it to bed in properly and any problems get ironed out before we migrate. In the meantime I will continue to vet anything you send me. Simon
  15. OK how about this - if you think a topic should be closed drop me a PM and I will close it. I value your judgements on what transgresses decency and I will take the heat for the closures. If people don't like I will be explaining that they can go set up their own forum.
  16. Some members, those who are in the 'Members group' will have noticed problems starting a thread. We have had to introduce a policy of prevention due to those delightfull chocolate starfish lickers known who are registering just to spam the forum with links. If you have just joined and have authorised your account from the automated email you will have recieved then you will have to make a handfull of posts before you are able to start a thread - just join in some threads. For those that have members for a while you may need to make one more reply post before the system realises you
  17. Official Cyberpunk paper minis hit the Net Politically Incorrect Games has released its second set of Disposable Heroes paper miniatures for use with the Cyberpunk roleplaying game, under license from R. Talsorian Games. Perfect not only for Cyberpunk gaming, these new minis will also work well with other modern and cyber-themed roleplaying and miniatures games. This set lets you select, customize, and download paper miniatures and counters to enhance your Cyberpunk V.3 gaming experience. Cyberpunk is the original roleplaying game of the dark future; a world o
  18. After many years of being on the dark side Murph has cybered up at last and is a born again Murph. For those of you wondering who this CyberMuph chap is... well its DarthMurph in his new shoes. And before you all go clamouring for a name change, I will only do it if you are a long term member and you bribe me lots.
  19. Far, far too much special effects going on - it just makes listening difficult - but give it a chance because underneath I think there is some interesting content so go for it! These guys have obviously put some effort in and are getting better and better so I say support it and give the podcasts a listen. It almost makes me want to start up the VftE radio station again! Or do our opwn podcasts. Ah if only I had the time or a huge team of willing volunteers!!
  20. Pants. Got there before 10:30 as stated in the leaflet but it was already full at the Ritzy in Brixton. Ah well - I will have to watch it at the big cinema when its released.
  21. As Mrs CJ has pointed out its Sunday morning not evening...
  22. Philip K Dicks novel A scanner Darkly gets its first film outing! The Guardian are doing free screenings on Sunday night for those of us in the UK - more information and the pdf you need to print out to get free tickets at the Guardian website. I will try and take Mrs CJ and myself along to the Brixton showing. See you there!
  23. For the Role Players we have just opened a new forum for discussing / revisiting the Talsorian Cyberpunk V3 rules with a long term possibility of producing alternatives you can use - like no one ever did that anyway... Redux V3 rules.
  24. Chats back and I apologise for the delay. It was a technical issue that the geeks sorted out and now I know why most members could not post -but you should be able to now! Hurrah!
  25. Key concepts: ethanol, biomass, alternative fuels, energy crises, microbes, cellulose, biotech solutions Attention Conservation Notice: It might take you a couple of beers' worth of ethanol to work your way through all of this. Links: The US is broke on oil costs, knee-deep in blood and unable to provide security even for Israel == so why not join the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the hot new AntiTerror Bloc for oil-rich Communists? It's like the old Warsaw Pact, only with Exxon's money! Will Serbia join? Will India? http://www.fmprc.gov.cn/eng/topics/sco
