Winnipesaukee Forum


Happy New Year to any of us out there still lurking! I've been checking in from time to time but the board has been very quiet - even CW seems to have lightened up on the filibuster.

I was googling Center Harbor history a few weeks ago and came across some very cool posts over at the Winnipesaukee Forum. Over the years, I have checked in there from time to time and I know some of us folks are members [sign in to see URL] it pre-date the original Wolfeboro Online? What's the story over there? Who runs it? It seems like a lively bunch, but I feel like there was a reason why I didn't join over there those years ago when WOL went [sign in to see URL]'t remember what that was now. I just decided to set up an account but I wanted to get your impressions of the place. I recognize a few screen names from WOL.

How long is the wait over there before you can post? When I try, I get this message:

Happy New Year to you and yours!

I've only "lightened-up" because my 3-y-o laptop quit. ('Wouldn't open Windows, and just whirred away with no sound, nor picture). I took it to the local Radio Shack and, after a week, they said they couldn't fix it. (!)

When I got home, I tried a trick that sorta worked on a previous desktop computer. I put it in the refrigerator overnight!

That seems to have worked, but I'm not turning it off any more!

To get to the [sign in to see URL] forum, you can click at the top-middle of WOFFL's home page at the "Lake Winni" button.

The [sign in to see URL] forum does, indeed, predate WOL and WOFFL. (And it's been quite a stretch, going back to the mid-90's—and a few "redesigns").

As to your new membership, the Webmaster, Don, has to sort through "real" new members and new "bots" that plague the entire forum system—worldwide.

It may take a few days or longer to be accepted as a real person, and to actually post at the [sign in to see URL] forum. You could e-mail the Webmaster to hurry the process along. That should reassure Webmaster-Don that you're not posting from China, Nigeria or Russia.

Mentioning that you're both members of Wolfeboro Off Line (Members BSG and "Don" are listed).

I've included a screenshot with Don's membership highlighted.

Or, you can send him the entire URL (link).

You may not have posted much, BSG because some thought it was kind of clicky for a while. I think that has gone away as there are different members now. There is a lot of interesting information on there and Don does a good job of keeping it under control, however like all forums, some posters just love to "jump" on others, criticizing them. The latest example of that is if someone posts a not so nice critique of a restaurant and is a new member, they get attacked. Sometimes it is probably true, they become a member just to post a personal vendetta, but the attackers really don't know if that is the case. But I think you will enjoy.

I don't know the right word to replace "clicky", but the basic word is "clique"—from the French.

When starting out, Webmaster Don may have blocked your return to the forum after posting just one reply—per day.

Another reason could be that "robots" (or, "bots") can "flood" the forum with unwanted advertising.

(And Don can't tell the difference).

Are you using BSG as your user-name? If so, I'll PM him to advise that you're a "nice person".

Hey, thanks, CW! I was able to post a comment there the other day so you worked your magic!

I used the same screen name as here and the original Wolfeboro Online. Just in case some folks remember me from the olden [sign in to see URL], WOnline was fun. I miss the golden age of message boards.

I'm tougher than Don ever could be!

However, Don is aware of this little forum.
