Advanced Placement Commiseration

For those of us high-schoolers who are in AP (college credit) classes. I figure, the teachers always insist that the course is the same all over... So why shouldn't people who aren't nessasarily close geographically be able to complain to/help others with the subjects? Anyone who is either taking an AP class, has taken one, or just knows a bunch about one of the subjects is welcome.

For the few of us MAC users, us rebels :P , that exist here in Elftown there is finally a place to discuss your MAC problems, questions, or whatever. Or even just chill and bask in the glory of OS X (ok.. some might still use OS 8/9.. its forgivable I guess.. you are still welcome... i guess :P )

Also consider this a way to learn more about MACs and what benifits switching from a PC might do for YOU. I can give you my honest opinion on whether or not these machines are for you.. some people simply should stick to PCs as they are better-fit for the person. I'm not a MAC freak who thinks that there is no good in Windows.. I just think OS X does it better, especially for me.

I'm also always willing to help with tech-support questions for both MAC and PC (Linux included on a VERY limited basis compared to the rest).

NOTE: I can help SOME with people trying to learn Xcode programming for MAC but I too am teaching myself right now.. so you might know as much as I.

2008-01-27 [Imperator]: Why don't we have all the forums on one page instead of two?

2008-01-27 [Hedda]: That would be a good question... <img:stuff/sutN.gif>

Historical reasons and because we thought people would list 100 more pages of forums and then we should re-arrange it all, or something...

2008-01-27 [True, plain and simple]: Or that they were misled by the "too-big-wiki-page" message... :P

2008-01-27 [Imperator]: Can we put them all on one page since that isn't happening?

And what is the point of that message? It doesn't stop you from putting a mile long string of text on it anyway...

2008-01-28 [iippo]: If I remember right, the message is to help people understand that hugenormous wikis that are being edited a lot (such as very active Roleplay games or such) are a tax on ET computer capacity. That's how I recall it at least, but I'm not a hundred percent sure. And this was a few years ago.
Anyway, I fixed this wiki now, because there aren't millions of people all adding their forums here so I don't see a reason for two wikis.

2008-01-28 [Imperator]: Yay!

So why does it take more capacity for one large page as opposed to several small ones?

2008-01-28 [True, plain and simple]: It doesn't. It just adds up more quickly if you're only changing things in one section of the page, because each copy of the page must be saved (and so saving a lot of copies of a large page is more space-consuming than the same amount of copies of a smaller one).

2008-01-28 [Imperator]: Hmmmmm. That didn't make a whole lot of sense but I don't pretend to know anything about this so... yeah...

2008-01-29 [Skydancer]: Every time a change is made to a wiki page, a copy of the entire page is saved as a previous version. So, if you have a wiki with 1000 lines, and wiki with 500 lines, then naturally everytime you edit the bigger one, you are eating up twice the disc space for each and every edit than you would be editing the smaller one. Does that explain it?

2008-01-29 [Imperator]: lol, yeah. Now I get it.

2008-02-02 [Hedda]: But nowadays the old versions are compressed together with each other, so small changes to huge pages takes up very little space in the long run. It's still a lot of data, but it's no problem. The messages are a much bigger problem at the moment, and the number of members also a little problematic, but I'm working on solving that too. <img:stuff/dand-gif.gif>

2008-07-14 [Hedda]: Well, I want it so anyone can join that's interested to be able to add themselves. But...if it's passworded, how can they just add themselves?

It's no problem because you've written the password in the joinforum-link, just like the other forums have done on this page.

2008-07-16 [Nita]: Worked fine for me :)

2008-09-26 [Lothuriel]: I am bit confused...where do I find the Forum number of a forum I have created?

2008-09-26 [True, plain and simple]: <URL:view_forum.html>; it should be in parenthesis after the name (though the real forum number is actually prefixed with a -, I suppose).

2008-09-26 [Lothuriel]: Oh, ok thanks hon!<img:44166_1164145221.gif>

2009-05-11 [Synirria]: I made a boo boo I don't know how to fix...I accidentally kicked myself from my own forum...what do I do?

2009-05-11 [Hedda]: I'm fixing that now...

2009-05-11 [Synirria]: I know lol sorry

2011-06-20 [Veltzeh]: Removed Assembly and ETA forums. I also took out Good rant and Fantasy_Writing_Reference forums because they can't be joined and their admins are gone.

2014-08-07 [SilverFire]: Removed some more forums that required you to contact inactive members in order to join.
