How to send message/contact other users on TLS?

Postby noob2018 » Sat Apr 21, 2018 1:36 am

Big noob here,

The PM feature is disabled, as mods do not users PMing other users the URL of a competing website that a bunch of TLSers founded after TLS was bought out by Harrison Barnes, a man who wants to integrate/market his legal recruiting services with/on this website (hence the Legal Job Board that now exists). This is also why posts need to be approved before they appear now. Mods don't want users posting in threads with the URL of their new competitor.

Ummm, ok first of, wow. Second, does this mean the TLS site is tainted? I mean is there anything else I need to know? Or do all the forums aside from the Legal Job Board, function as it used to function?

With regards to PMing people, how am I supposed to get into contact with them?

Many thanks!

This board is now dead. 99% of the former regular users and all the mods have left this site. A handful of us have stayed around as a skeleton crew. You might get some good Law School advice elsewhere, especially regarding Life issues. Certainly gotta see how your Life fits in within Law School.

Quite frankly, there hasn't been much "tainting" beyond the removal of the PM feature and post approval. That being said, the site has been pretty much crippled by 90% of the competent and veteran posters leaving to the other site. The 10% who stayed seem to offer some serious discussion occasionally but mostly just mock the new admin pretty hard. The other functionality has remained, but it's the people that made this place great, not the shitty php forum setup.

You can't PM people, so if you want to get in contact with them you have to quote them on the board and publicly offer them your email address or a placeholder one you've created quickly on google. You could also give out your number, if you're a bold human being not afraid of internet trolls. Pretty shitty options.

What is the "other site" people keep talking about? and is it reminiscent of the old school days of TLS?

By christian standards, this is a virtuous response. The gods will bless you in thy heavens.
