  1. Maybe if we could get our hands on a time machine and go back to when we could mine bitcoin easily and then wait to sell high...
  2. Concord just approved a 166 unit apartment building downtown which significantly ups the ante for Concord's downtown. There are currently a couple of converted buildings that were made residential, but this certainly has the potential to change the vibe in a significant way: https://www.independenttribune.com/news/concord-approves-construction-of-unit-apartment-complex-in-downtown/article_02bb3336-8ee6-11e9-b3af-dbc286cf2731.html
  3. Let's stop with the political posts please and stay on topic. You're welcome to create a political thread for those that want to discuss such things in the coffee house but let's keep it out of regular threads please. Thank you
  4. Honestly, I have no idea how we ended up with such an awesome community! I attribute it to all of you and not putting up with trolls and realizing that we are all human. Thanks to all for making this site amazing!
  5. Definitely shouldn't be taking anywhere near 1-5 minutes to load obviously. I don't have anyone with a similar issue at the moment so I'm not entirely sure what is going on. Would you mind loading Safari without any plugins to see if the issue goes away? You can also try using a different browser to see if you obtain differently results (ex. Google Chrome in incognito mode so that no extensions are loaded).
  6. I'm happy to hear that everyone enjoys it here! I'm not sure I moderate much...we have a great group here! Users and moderators seem to keep everyone else in check which is a bit unique. I started the site back in 2005...back then it was shortly ran under the name SkyScraperAmerica I believe. I should probably know that with 100% certainty but the older I get the more I have to pick and choose the information that I choose to hold on to. I am local to the Charlotte area...born and raised (I did spend a small stent in Chicago after graduating high school). About Charlotte being the most active...this is true but we also have a few other active cities here. It isn't that I don't want other areas to grow in traffic, but I honestly just don't have the time with my day job and other duties and hobbies to make it work. In some ways I almost want to keep this site a secret just so things are kept civil...but even with the current size (I would wager that we're the largest Charlotte forum on the web...or at least the one with the highest quality content), everyone has (mostly) remained very civil throughout our growth. I really never expected this site to take off like it did. I mainly just wanted a place that didn't have all of the hoopla that you see on other sites and I'm extremely proud that we have that here. It isn't by my doing but by the cumulative effort of everyone here to not put up with junk. Everyone give the person next to you a round of applause!
  7. I'm done with this...problem is now solved. I've banned I am Reality from the site so hopefully everyone can get back to enjoying the community here.
  8. Please send me an email with links to those posts as I don't recall ever getting an email from you that specific or with links that called you those things. Again, I've asked for BOTH sides to ignore each other, you keep reading that incorrectly it seems. If you do not like others' opinions on this site, you are absolutely welcome to go elsewhere. It is obvious that you are not having a good time here. If it is something that I can fix then please spell it out for me with actual examples and not just here say. I did a quick search and all I could find were posts by you that referenced the name calling but I couldn't find an instance of someone calling you that (douche bag).
  9. Actually, I didn't say that the personal attacks were getting old because I'm actually having somewhat of a difficult time seeing what the personal attacks are at times. You can only cry wolf so many times before I start ignoring to a degree. This is a free and public site...if you don't want to be here then you don't have to be here, it is that simple. No one makes anyone stay, no one makes anyone post. Anyone is free to leave at any point in time. This is a public Internet site where we do have rules, but we also open our doors to free speech and unless it is a blatant attack on someone then I feel I'm a bit obligated to let it stand. Read that how you would like. I assure you that hate, personal attacks, etc aren't allowed on this site, but I can't recall one time where you have explicitly given me an example of an attack. You have quoted posts and say it is an attack, but I'm not going to read through pages of material just to figure out if someone is sort of out-of-sight attacking another user. That's what the ignore feature is for. And for the record on the ignore feature, it goes BOTH WAYS. You cannot expect someone else to ignore you, but you can absolutely block someone else. I'm tired of receiving reports about someone not blocking them when instead the user doing the reporting is the one that should be blocking the offending user. Again, I'm having a really hard time finding anything truly offending but it is quite possibly I'm missing it. If I am missing it, I'm just asking that someone give me a few examples...and not just quote an entire post and call it an attack when there isn't anything obvious to go on.
  10. Tell you what guys...everyone reports everyone on this it seems and I'm getting really tired of it. I want everyone who has an opinion about what needs to be done to send me an email ([email protected]) and I will make a decision based on the responses that I get...assuming one can be obviously distinguished from others.
  11. ...as a reminder, we have an ignore function...please use it. https://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/ignore/
  12. I don't mind at all, but obviously the content is owned by the paper that published them so I'm passing the buck to them for re-use rights.
  13. I was sent a collection of archived newspaper articles a while back and I just got around to scanning them in this morning to share with everyone. I've placed them in a public Google Drive location here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1hdjC1nsK1INBkew5tq3AL-wDF0QXr2_K Lots of interesting images and articles in the collection!
  14. Nothing good can come of this thread. I'll be glad when we can all go back to a time when America wasn't as divided or at least a time when the majority decided to keep it to themselves.
  15. I'm not taking your bait, but I will say this. I can only act on what I see. I see a post in response to someone else, not you or you dad and no reference to it anywhere. You are making an assumption, a far reaching assumption IMO which is your opinion and your right. It is also their right to not respond to you and it is quite possible that they have you on their ignore list meaning that they never did and never will see the response that you made.
