Hey, your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance. It should be available again within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience.

lol

these claims remain dubious at best

best error message I ever got was while searching was down; something to the effect of "We're sorry, this function is temporarily unavailable. Please try your search again in a little while, or right now."

ah, i never did reply to this thread. my computer's only letting me access ilx every three of four days atm, which seems a slightly harsh rate of censorship. i'll be gone all of next week too. aren't you lucky?

the vast flood of ilxors adding me as a friend is still only a steady trickle. c'mon! it's not like you don't know my name (and I'm still, to my knowledge, the only one on F-book, not that this isn't a cue for passantino to create a fake-LJ with amusing political views/sexual proclivities)...

Only a few ILXors have friended me. You know you can friend them yourself if all else fails.

Curt1s Stephens, Sunday, 1 July 2007 00:27 (twelve years ago) link

All but one of my friends are from ILX. I should get out some more. Or my real-life non-ILX friends should get on teh interwebs more.

i like facefuck myself

696, Sunday, 1 July 2007 15:12 (twelve years ago) link

696, Sunday, 1 July 2007 15:13 (twelve years ago) link

That one guy that quit, Sunday, 1 July 2007 15:19 (twelve years ago) link

696, Sunday, 1 July 2007 15:29 (twelve years ago) link

Drax lack the majesty of Didcot.

ive just joined farcebook and found it a bit weird. kinda interesting to see where old school friends are and have them poke and add you and all that but kinda creepy all the same and theres certain schoolmates who i really dont wanna see ever again but you cant help it as theyre friends with other people you know. its also a bit farcical i think, lots of people have added me just for the sake of adding (and well prob vice versa), not for any other real reason. seems a bit pointless. im going to use it for networking with people ive never met in my life anyway.

titchyschneiderMk2, Monday, 2 July 2007 11:51 (twelve years ago) link

I have the same problem. All these people I'd happily left long behind certainly emerging from the woodwork, applying to be your "friend". Have we spoken in 5+ years? Are you likely to ever again make any attempt to contact me? Then wwe're not really friends are we? Better to be selective I reckon.

Uptoeleven, Monday, 2 July 2007 12:44 (twelve years ago) link

I'm just too busy trying to become a MUSICK EKSPERT

nathalie, Monday, 2 July 2007 12:46 (twelve years ago) link

i actually got sucked in and poked a few old school friends who i havent spoken to in years.

titchyschneiderMk2, Monday, 2 July 2007 12:47 (twelve years ago) link

worse than old school friends though is women you went out with who it didnt work out with poking you. WHY?

titchyschneiderMk2, Monday, 2 July 2007 12:48 (twelve years ago) link

Well, she wants to get JIZZY with you. I said JIZZY, yes, JIZZY.

nathalie, Monday, 2 July 2007 12:49 (twelve years ago) link

ha but no, i think she just wants me to click 'ADD' and bump up her friends list (although facebook doesnt seem nearly as bad for that as myspace).

titchyschneiderMk2, Monday, 2 July 2007 12:55 (twelve years ago) link

I repeat: JIZZY with ya! ;-)

nathalie, Monday, 2 July 2007 12:57 (twelve years ago) link

i added them anyway
lol

titchyschneiderMk2, Monday, 2 July 2007 12:57 (twelve years ago) link

throw her a banana and add "stuff it" message

nathalie, Monday, 2 July 2007 12:59 (twelve years ago) link

Can you help me with something? If I want to find old friends, and I search their name and lots of people come up and it's not immediately apparent if any of them are who I'm looking for, how do I see their full profile?

Mark C, Monday, 2 July 2007 13:00 (twelve years ago) link

You can't. Send them a message or something and ask if they are who you think they are.

Ms Misery, Monday, 2 July 2007 13:03 (twelve years ago) link

I think you can click on a person's name and see a list of who their friends are .... that might narrow it down, if you recognise any of those names.

C J, Monday, 2 July 2007 13:03 (twelve years ago) link

Dear Mr Carlin

Are you Mr Carlin? If so I want to friend you. Please provide confirmation of identity, including full bank details, passport number and comprehensive list of all worldly goods and chattels.

Sincerely etc.

I think I get enough of those types of email from Nigeria...

Marcello Carlin, Monday, 2 July 2007 13:08 (twelve years ago) link

I've been seduced by FB for the past couple of weeks but now I am drifting back to the ILX fold.

You can usually tell by looking at their friends list, I find. If you've got any people or places in common that's usually the giveaway.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 3 July 2007 08:04 (twelve years ago) link

searching friends' friends, or looking for groups/networks people from the past might be in, is the better way of finding people.

the "find people via your email contacts list" reveals only that i have NO IDEA who most of the people in my gmail address book are.

lex pretend, Tuesday, 3 July 2007 08:39 (twelve years ago) link

"find people via your email contacts list" = "would you like to add everyone you've ever bought or sold something to on Amazon marketplace?"

Dom Passantino, Tuesday, 3 July 2007 08:40 (twelve years ago) link

Also: suddenly noticing that annoying PRs are really hot

Michael Philip Philip Philip philip Annoyman, Tuesday, 3 July 2007 11:04 (twelve years ago) link

titchyschneiderMk2, Tuesday, 3 July 2007 11:13 (twelve years ago) link

ken c, Tuesday, 3 July 2007 11:34 (twelve years ago) link

*properly*

nathalie, Tuesday, 3 July 2007 11:38 (twelve years ago) link

someone i met once at a work related do... lots of people are adding me and i barely know them properly. maybe the person is part of a gimp S&M torture group and doesnt want me to see.

titchyschneiderMk2, Tuesday, 3 July 2007 11:44 (twelve years ago) link

Jizzy. ;-)

nathalie, Tuesday, 3 July 2007 11:49 (twelve years ago) link

Maybe they hate dubstep.

Dom Passantino, Tuesday, 3 July 2007 11:49 (twelve years ago) link

Ken, define properly. Nekkid pics?

nathalie, Tuesday, 3 July 2007 11:51 (twelve years ago) link

nathalie, Tuesday, 3 July 2007 12:30 (twelve years ago) link

Are you on Kit? Are you my friend?

Ms Misery, Tuesday, 3 July 2007 13:32 (twelve years ago) link

Yeah teh_kit, friend us!

kv_nol, Tuesday, 3 July 2007 18:15 (twelve years ago) link

BusinessWeek is on the case.

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 3 July 2007 18:16 (twelve years ago) link

xpost

For a second I thought you were claiming you and teh-kit were one. Confusing.

How was Berlin?

Ms Misery, Tuesday, 3 July 2007 18:17 (twelve years ago) link

ow maan, i have to deal with the zombie thing now.

That one guy that quit, Wednesday, 4 July 2007 14:22 (twelve years ago) link

When people poke you, are you supposed to poke them back? What's the point of it? There's no message with it or anything.

Colonel Poo, Thursday, 5 July 2007 13:53 (twelve years ago) link

Poking is a way of saying hello i am here and i want to fuck you...but for people without the confidence to actually say or even imply it
