Welcome to the Patio

In Chile, when the old, crazy, and infirm are institutionalized and set out in a wheelchair on the patio to drool all over each other they are referred to as “locos de patio”. This is where we keep our locos de patio on the All Chile Forum.

Welcome to the Patio

Post by admin » Tue Jun 14, 2011 12:44 am

Welcome to the Patio, where we keep those that just can not find a better forum on the internet to waist their time on (there are millions you know).

The patio requires 200 posts and 1 year of membership on allchile.net to post on it.

Registered users get to read the Patio. Guests only get to see the first post on the patio, and a nice message after that says they need to register.

We will take it from there, and see how it goes.

Of course, the Patio would not be complete without the chile forum purple blob (wonder how many recall the purple blob glitch ever time number 80 was typed).

I am not really sure, but for some reason some members of the el patio group have had their marking turn bright pink as they should (patio group color), but others have not. Perhaps a log in, log out is required. Will try flushing the cache to see if anyone else changes. It might be attached to existing sessions. Will check over the next few days.

Well I got pinkified which a) overwrote my green mod tag, and b) will lead to Enrique Estay calling me a maricón. Halp!

Damnit Charles, just wait till the rumors get started about this site.

As I was posting on the main board and seeing all the bright hot pink user names, the question dawned on me of what would a newbie or a passing through browsing visitor of the site think?

yea, might turn off the color. It changed the admin color where it should not have, and did not change some users colors where it should have.

I would now untie the "Loco Del Patio" user group from the "forum member rank" (that is simply auto-assigned currently by the software, as users post their 200th message), to firstly solve the "1 year minimum" requirement, and also to try to resolve the admin/global mods color issue. I would suggest gray color ~ that is, hex "#808080" for the El Patio members. Then I would accept the color as my forum nick's color.. Manually transfer users into this group could be not very convenient, so.. just sayin'..

Rune, this is like 28 Days Later or maybe Invasion of the Body Snatchers. We will yet get and infect you with pink.

As you wish, E..

... as he was crossing a river, he saw his reflected image -- and experienced a great awakening...

Earnestly avoid seeking without,
Lest it recede far from you.

Today I am walking alone,
Yet everywhere I meet *him*.

He is now no other than myself,
But I am not now him.

It must be understood in this way
In order to merge with Suchness.
