ok, now for the sad news :(

Sorry to have to pass this along, but after seeing this thread, I felt I should. John Barrera, my cousin who co-owned BOR (and posted occasionally as King John), passed away suddenly back on June 22.

Here is the post I made on my Twitter account that day:

Damn man, I'm sorry to hear. I think I do remember seeing a FB post or something about this. Hope you and your family are doing ok.

When Dan told me about this I couldn't quite remember John, and it turns out he'd always remembered me and had even asked Dan to check up on how I was going in life several years after BOR closed down. It was a long time ago, but after putting a face to him I can now remember our AIM chats and his awesome sense of humour. He seemed like an extremely kind and decent person.

Once again Dan, thoughts go out to you and those that knew him well.

One thing I like about a few forums is they've instituted a rep/like system. If you like what a poster says, you can "like" the individual post, or offer "rep" to the poster himself. Kind of encourages activity and quality engagement.

You can also dislike, bad rep posters. Not sure if its possible to do that here?


Yeah they use a "like" system on the BoxOffice.com forums as well as other forums that I frequent. I've always been a fan although you will run in to the inevitable annoying posters who are obsessed with getting as many likes as possible and make it a big competition. Even so, I still think the rep system has merit.

Be nice but to my knowledge the format seems pretty fixed here, something about the server?

Those systems are genius for increasing engagement. It's manipulative though, it works on the psychological principle of self-worth, where introducing a value system encourages repeat business due to the poster becoming addicted to personal validation. People with a lower self-esteem can get really hooked on it.

Facebook incorporates this heavily. Human value is a commodity now.

Yeah, there's certainly pros and cons. I also liked the more "advanced" features which allow you to monitor specific conversations, i.e. you receive a note if someone replies to a post you've made. Convenient, lets you not have to sift.

I have his facebook, but he has it set so that I can't friend him or send a message that won't go to his 'other' folder, which no-one ever checks. I'm having to get to him laterally.

Shouldn't be too hard to find Mike Gately actually, we just need to find a pic of someone with that name standing next to a giant television set. That will be him. (For those who remember Gately's descriptions of his family home)

Ha. I remember the time I mistakenly assumed AirZia (sp?) was black.

One name I haven't heard thrown out there yet is JP - no clue how to find him.

Tell you what, imagine getting Billy Reeves and Ricky here as well. Those two guys and GC were the heart of the social side of BOR

Cuzzin Talk took two years of my life away. :funny:

I seriously don't know what do with Omenvoir. I'd need a random friend of his to accept me as a facebook friend just to get a message to him (not going to happen) or if he sees comments I've made on public group photos that he's been tagged on. Will keep trying.
