I discovered I could create sub-forums, so I've made them for each of the key albums, plus the Anthologies, Love and Live At The BBC. It'll hopefully save anyone creating any more of those "what's your favourite song on x album" threads, of which there are many.

I can create more sub-forums if people think they'd be useful, for example each of John/Paul/George/Ringo's solo albums. I'm not sure whether it'd be useful though.

I don't to overload the forum with sub-sections because it might become harder to navigate (for example if there were a sub-forum for every Beatles song), but I'm all in favour of making things work in a more navigable way. Let me know what you think.

Nice idea, Joe.

Who'd have thought there'd be more threads dedicated to "Love" than to any other non-SPLHCB album?!

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

On another thread, SatanHimself said:

Hell…  It's 2013.  He should be amazed that these forums still exist at all.  These things are ghosts of the old internet.

It got me thinking about the way conversations online are happening. A lot of sites use social logins, and most people seem to have Facebook, Twitter etc accounts. So I've signed up with a third-party service that allows up to six different account logins for the forum, in addition to the normal registration/sign-in. So, more options to encourage people to join in.

The current services are Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo!, Blogger, Google+ and Disqus (the last two might not be immediately invisible). That should cover most people.

It took a bit of head-scratching, and involved signing up for developer accounts, dealing with API keys etc. I've tested it with Twitter and it seems to work, but if you use the others and spot a problem please let me know.

Note that when you log in via Twitter, you have to authorise the Beatles Bible. It says: "This application will be able to:

  • Read Tweets from your timeline.
  • See who you follow, and follow new people.
  • Update your profile.
  • Post Tweets for you."

As far as I can tell this is a formality, and nothing will get posted/read that you don't do yourself. But *please* let me know if anything looks dodgy. I really don't want to piss people off by doing anything unwanted.

New mods!

I thought I'd shake things around a bit here as skye and mithveaen tend not to post so much nowadays. I drop by every couple of days but I've become aware that Zig's essentially been doing all the moderation on his own.

I'm glad to say mja6758 and fabfouremily have kindly agreed to become mods. As before, there aren't too many forum rules, but having a couple of extra people means they can edit, delete or move anything that shouldn't have been posted.

For everyone, if you see any spam, just report the post and I'll deal with it. If I see it I can zap the account and/or block the IP address.

Thanks to Mith, Skye, and of course Zig. Virtual handshakes to mja and ffe.
