Some of my first experiences on the internet and starting to learn about social networking involved surfing the live chatrooms of the networking pioneer Yahoo, it was an eye opening experiment in human behavior for sure...

Well we support that type of thing here at WPC as well, just click on the link over toward the left side in the toolbar at the bottom of the page... after you've registered an account here you can create your own rooms in there...

Premiering Mar 8 will be season 34 of my favorite TV series ever. The pioneers of reality tv keep it real with another season of returning players, specifically those that want to and already proved themselves to be "Game Changers", should be great fun to watch.

I would love to respond to other fans thoughts and observations as the season progresses, if you can afford the fee CBS charges (I do it in case I miss an episode) you can catch up here: http://www.cbs.com/shows/survivor/ (there's 500+ previous episodes as well)...

Chess at WPC

Hello all,

I have been away from an ongoing project to develop a new online game module that is specifically designed for SMF powered websites. After about six years of frustration I am looking to get back into bringing my dream project to fruition. I am so convinced that it will be a huge money making venture that I am willing to give shares of future revenue to a few coders who can help me build it. You will need to be familiar with, or willing to learn about web coding in the PHP language, I can show you how we use it in relation to MySQL databases. We even have a working model of a different game that I want to adapt to function exactly the same way in my new game... it's the Chess Game module located in the gaming menu here at WPC... If you click the image above it's a link that takes you directly to the chess game here, I have actually started adapting it for my new game at the test site but changing the way the board looks and is laid out has proven to be a problem. You will find other threads which describe the project if you use the search button and use the phrase "acey deucy", you can find a rudimentary description of the new game at this message link: https://web-presence-consulting.com/index.php/topic,20449.0

If you are local to #Knoxville TN and looking to jump start your game design career with the possibility of significant future funding, respond here soon, the local bus lines go right by my house, I will PM you with directions and we will begin by you learning how to play the game I want to design from the physical world viewpoint...

I feel like my mentoring a student with the variety of experiences and insight learned during my professional career (spanning 25+ years) would be highly beneficial for any student looking forward to a successful and fulfilling career in game design... the great thing about SMF© powered sites is that it is a free Open Source platform that we are free to modify any way that suits us, well, within the bounds of sound SMF practices and standards. If you are interested in how serious I am about the kind of standards I am use to... download my resume which is available (after you register an account h

5 sabotaging job interview mistakes – and how to avoid them


Great news! You've gotten an interview for that job you want, so the next step is to ace it and get closer to getting hired. You've done your homework, researching both the company and the hiring manager you're about to meet. You're prepared with intelligent questions and great examples of past accomplishments that prove you'd be a great fit for this position.

What could go wrong? According to a new CareerBuilder survey, employers site these five instant deal breakers:

  1. Candidate is caught lying about something: 66 percent
  2. Candidate answers a cellphone or text during the interview: 64 percent
  3. Candidate appears arrogant or entitled: 59 percent
  4. Candidate dresses inappropriately: 49 percent
  5. Candidate appears to have a lack of accountability: 48 percent

Three tips to improve interview performance

Unfortunately, it's easy to make these mistakes without even realizing it — and many of them are more common than you might think. So how can you avoid making a potentially interview-ending blunder?

Be self-aware. If you find you were accidentally rude, then apologize calmly and genuinely. Then leave it behind you and get on with the rest of the interview. If you dwell on it, it will affect your performance.

Make a good first impression. Unfortunately, no matter how hard the interviewer tries, a lot of decisions are made in the first few minutes of contact. According to the CareerBuilder survey, around half of employers (51 percent) know within the first five minutes of an interview if a candidate is a good fit for a position. If you make a strong first impression, the interviewer will be more inclined to overlook "imperfections" in your answers.

Be yourself. As you prepare for your session, are you planning to pretend to be someone you're not? Do you intend to exaggerate your accomplishments or, worse, say whatever you think the interviewer wants to hear? Stop right there. You'll win more points and make more allies if you present yourself as yourself

This year's 12 most outrageous job interview mistakes

Not all mistakes employers have seen in interviews are so common. In fact, some are downright wacky. As part of the CareerBuilder survey, employers and hiring managers recalled the following strange-but-true example...

There are several areas of the system here at WPC that incorporate what is known as "credits", several of the modules installed here use them heavily. And for the most part its much like what you may find on other systems like this and some sites that are not SMF powered... from memory I will list the areas here at WPC that rely on credits... The Shop module, Batlle RPG game, and the Downloads/Resources module...
  • The shop module is the main controlling module for the credit system, it has a Bank where you can draw/deposit credits & earn interest on the deposited amount, you can purchase various items in the Shop internal store, it also awards preset amounts of "free" credits & bonuses for posting in the message boards.
  • The Downloads module is the one that allowed me to monetize the credit system with real PayPal@ money and the current conversion rate is 1 credit = $0.00005 cents and that module charges you a preset amount for downloading items in which the charge is awarded to the user who uploaded the particular digital item.
  • In the Battle role playing game you use credits to purchase items such as health and attack/defense points which determine whether you live or die during the game and it also awards you a preset number of free credits just for playing the game.
  • Occasionally I will award a certain amount of credits to members who contribute useful information/items to the community.
  • Sometimes I will award credits to winners of various promotional programs or competitions we conduct here.

So as you can see, the credit system is sort of like having money but doesn't necessarily cost you real money (purchasing them with PayPal is entirely optional), it depends on your spending habits and participation in the community, explore it and give me some feedback, and since the minimum age required to be a member is 13 it gives youngsters some practice in how a true monetary environment works without necessarily twisting their arms to use real money to make purchases or earning their own way for that matter.

Looking for a new job in 2017? So are your coworkers


At the beginning of a new year, everyone's full of resolutions — to lose weight, to exercise, to be a better person. But what are your job hunting resolutions? According to a new CareerBuilder survey, more than one in five workers (22 percent) are planning to change jobs in 2017. Among younger workers, the numbers are even higher. More than a third of workers ages 18 to 34 (35 percent) expect to change jobs in 2017 — this compares to 15 percent of workers ages 35 and older.

Aside from finding a new job, the top New Year's resolutions workers say they're making for the office this year are:

  • Save more of my pay: 49 percent
  • Be less stressed: 38 percent
  • Get a raise or promotion: 30 percent
  • Eat healthier at work: 28 percent
  • Learn something new (take more courses, training, seminars): 26 percent

It's never a bad time to start moving your career in a better direction, and a new year is the perfect time to make a change. Here are five New Year's resolutions that can have a big payoff in 2017.

Expand your network: Contrary to popular belief, the best time to network isn't when you're looking for a job — it's long before then. Having a broad, diverse network already in place will make the future job search that much easier — plus, people tend to be happier to meet you when you aren't starting your conversation with "please help me get a job now."

Take on a new challenge: If you've been at it for a while, it can be easy to fall into a predictable pattern of routine and general complacency. Make the new year your time to shine, and step outside your comfort zone.

Get organized: It might sound cliché, but a little bit of organization goes a long way. Whether it's making a more concerted effort to keep track of deadlines and appointments or sorting through the endless files and folders on your desktop, instilling some order will help you keep on top of things.

Boost your skills and your role: Treat every workday like a school day. Be sure you learn something and use it to make yourself more productive. Occasionally think how you can go above and beyond. For example, are there projects outside your defined role you could help with? Be proactive; ask to join.

Keep your documents updated: Keeping your resume up to d...

I have an excellent internet connection and still get a code 500 error screen trying to access the system occasionally so I know many of you are getting some too... it's really just a temporary performance glitch and if you wait a few seconds and click the browser's refresh button it should clear up... will keep trying to improve performance but you must realize that I have an unusually large number of various modules installed but you ought to know that they don't seem to create many error log entries, this is the most stable version of the core SMF platform I've worked with, I'm tickled...
