Welcome to FAFO Chronicles / Stuff to Know

New Stuff (reverse chronological):

  • Currently 39 members from 6 countries.
  • Always include a “Featured Image” in your posts.

 


This is the no-nostril zone.

Play around. Have some fun.

The intention here is that this site will operate differently from SAV. For one thing, there will not be a central owner who produces all of the content. If this site will work, the content will have to be collaborative.

When you initially register your account, you will be assigned “Subscriber” status, which allows you to read, comment, and chat. Those of you who wish to contribute content will be elevated to “Author” status, which will allow you to make new posts.

We will work on the concept of “roles” as we go along, and we will flesh out the rules. For now, the basic rules are:

  • Say what you want, as long as it does not break the law.
    • No threats of violence.
    • No publishing copyrighted material outside of legal “fair use”, such as parody.
    • No doxxing or trolling.
  • Be kind to each other.

The comment system here is not quite the same as what is available on SAV. For example, at present there is no mechanism for inline YouTube videos (you can do that in a post, but not in a comment). However, my expectation is that much of what would go into comments for SAV will constitute a new post here. For example, you might create a new post to list some of your new memes, show a video, etc.

We also have a fully featured chat system, allowing members to communicate in real time.

There are lots of features, and more that could be added, so play around and we’ll see where it goes.

Stuff to Know:

  • Everyone is an Author. Create new posts. Comment on existing posts. Participate in chat.
  • You can edit your own posts, comments, and chat.
  • You can have a private chat with another member.
  • Go to your admin profile and make sure your nickname and display name are both set and are the same, otherwise your name will not show on your posts.
  • When you make a post, include a default image. If you are only posting a meme, the default image can be the meme, and the post itself can be empty.
  • To add images to a post, drag and drop them into the editor. This will add them to the Media Library, and you can click Insert to insert into the post. You can choose Full Size or a smaller size.
  • If you are creating a post from a phone and can’t easily drag and drop, use the media upload feature.
  • When you create a new post, please select one or more categories, e.g., FAFO/Antivaxxer.
  • As of right now (3:47pm PT 9/10/23), we have 33 members. Good start.
  • Question / need assistance with something? Email me at jgorn@fafochronicles.com.

JG, I’ve no idea of the costs of setting up a site, and I hesitated to say it – but someone else did, so I’ll chime in – if it would help for users to chip in, maybe a paypal link?

I personally would not mind if Nostrildamus were to disappear from this site. Even with the red lines, I am so tired of this wax dummy.

Here is my attempt at designing a site logo. The image was obtained from Pixabay, but it’s in the public domain.

Not to be ungrateful, constructive criticism,—-true Debbie Downer mode.
Image size is very touchy. I just spent over 15 minutes, made 9 different screenshots and now give up. “not wide enough”, “not long enough”—-then too big.

MaryMary reporting for duty after a long absence. Left SAV membership many moons ago due to lack of oversight on violent threats to public figures and member-on-member misogyny. Looking forward to a better experience. SAV has been my go-to place for everything pumpkin. Thanks, JGorn!

A parody by Avery

I can’t remember for whom I wrote this one, it was someone who said “Not regretting not getting vaccinated”

To the tune of HiHo from Snow White.

FAFO FAFO 
Off to the morgue you go
Prevention might have helped you know 
FAFO FAFO FAFO 

FAFO FAFO 
Unanswered prayers oh no!
The vaccine wasn’t just for show 
FAFO FAFO 

We got as many boosters as the doctors would allow
We’re still here and you are dead 
Who’s not regretting now?

On science and the experts 
We asked you to rely
You trusted a big orange turd 
Are you surprised he lied?

FAFO FAFO to bury you we go
Your life you’ve chosen to forgo
FAFO FAFO FAFO 

FAFO FAFO
Your madness stopped and so
I have to say  “We told you so”
FAFO FAFO

Ok, I’m here, and not as tech savvy as I used to be, so it’ll be a learning curve for a while.

Thanks for all this Gorn and Madness. I would like to contribute stories, either from reddit or HCA. If I could get status as a content creator eventually that would be fine. Also willing to help with the costs.

There are a couple of interesting stories on HCA that could be seedling content.

Cheers mates!

PS. Happy to help out with the costs!

I’m here, but not a fast learner. It’ll take me a while to figure out how it works. Thanks J Gorn.

Comment with meme is needed, it appears. Otherwise, an input is too short pops up.

Is it one meme per post or my tech learning curve? I’d prefer a baker’s dozen for the love of Sunday Funnies though fewer or one per post is no worries if that’s how it is.
