has anyone else noticed how LG's off topic section is a lot more active than the rest of the site?


I see nothing wrong with the off-topic section on LG being active like that.

Yeah I don't really see a problem with it either. Could ask to admins to allow members that hate OT posts to hide that category in last posts.

@ Zarlog: The off-topic pictures are more of an issue than off topic posts. Pictures take up a lot of site space compared to forum posts. Not saying I have any issues with the off topic gallery section (I use it to share some electrical things I do at work that aren't lighting related) but if you were concerned about site space, that would be the first thing I'd get rid of.

BTW, before anyone on LG sees it, Here's a dirt cheap 250W HPS M-250R2 on ebay $20.20 for shipping. I'd totally buy one but I have one NOS exactly like this and a used/restored 250W 120V one so I'm good. Still very tempting though. I kind of want to toss a low-ball offer of like $20 and see if the seller bites. Getting it for $40 shipped would be quite a deal even though I don't need it lol.

I'm going to keep an eye on that, even though shipping for me is $45.

Well, I guess I haven't posted here in awhile!  At least we appear to be having more/younger members coming in, at least judging by this thread. 

I've been kinda inactive on here as of late.  LG usually gets more visitors so I generally post most of my stuff on there anyway...

Since the last time I was really active on here often, I have: 

-Moved off to college and back multiple times
-Earned an associate's degree thereof
-Declared a psychology major
-Continued my drivers ed
-Held other jobs
-Had a potential writing career come up
-Had a potential diesel/heavy-truck-mechanic career come up
-And another hobby of mine, army trucks, has all but completely changed my life.

Not related to everything else in this thread, but it seems the LG admins have temporarily disabled the site due to members fighting. I don't really know what's going on, but I do think I have an idea of who one of the "offenders" is. (not going to post it publicly here).

Did I get banned, or something? Because I can't get on to LG.

No, it's a site wide shutdown due to infighting with some members. I have an idea what but I'm not gonna list names on here publicly. As for when LG will be up again, only the admin there know lol.  GoL will remain open in it's kinda buggy state though lol.

I'm totally out of the loop about the site drama (everyone keeps saying there is drama but no one wants to talk about it). I understand you guys keeping quiet because you have suspicions, not concrete knowledge of who's involved but I don't agree with this "inner circle" management LG has always had. The admins love to say there's a problem but fail to inform the general populous on key details. They're always too broad. When someone commits a crime in real life, record of it can be obtained rather freely from the authority having jurisdiction. On LG everything is a secret. Roll Eyes I'm also talking about date codes. IMO there should be a form sublet all about date codes with different brands and how to decipher them. Instead they keep everyone in the dark and expect people to figure it out on their own.

I don't know much about what happened either, all I know is some members are fighting and therefore they decided to shut down the entire site. I think I know who one of them is, if you want to know I can PM you. I just didn't want to post it out on the open here since I don't want to give this site a bad image. I also agree that having every little mishap kept a secret isn't good. Everyone should be informed of all the details whenever something goes wrong rather than locking every thread on it and not replying.

Wasn't GoL originally started as an escape from bickering on LG?
I remember signing up on GoL for that reason back in the day. Hopefully things will calm down soon, but I think I'll hang here for a while!

Yeah prom what I understand GoL was founded because of a major rift between LG admins at the time. During that time the LG leadership was purged and basically the current lineup was created out of it. I think partly to blame was that there were too many admins with different views on how the site should be moderated so they had shrunk it down to I think two admins (plus the webmaster) and rather recently added one (or two?) admins.

It's too bad this site died off a few years ago. I liked this site because it was a smaller community and mostly street light-based rather than fluorescent-based like LG.
