Happy new year 2023

  • With the new year looming, I wanted to first wish all members a very happy and prosperous 2023. In addition, I wanted to provide the below “Hillbilly Wisdom” as you’ll find that several of these do in fact align themselves to everyday life, and the policies on Sudonix.

    Aside from one user who will remain anonymous (and whom subsequently received a lifetime ban), nobody has ever intentionally breached the usage policy of this site. However, I’d like to remind all users that common courtesy, respect for others, and a business-like ethic costs you nothing (very much like the usage of this platform). So without further ado, here’s the list of “Hillbilly Wisdom” - see how many you can relate to

    𝐎𝐥𝐝 𝐇𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐲 𝐖𝐢𝐬𝐝𝐨𝐦:

    • Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight, and bull-strong.
    • Keep skunks, bankers, and politicians at a distance.
    • Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
    • A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.
    • Words that soak into your ears are whispered, not yelled.
    • The best sermons are lived, not preached.
    • If you don’t take the time to do it right, you’ll find the time to do it twice.
    • Don’t corner something that is meaner than you.
    • Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.
    • It don’t take a very big person to carry a grudge.
    • You cannot unsay a cruel word.
    • Every path has a few puddles.
    • When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.
    • Don’t be banging your shin on a stool that’s not in the way.
    • Borrowing trouble from the future doesn’t deplete the supply.
    • Most of the stuff people worry about ain’t never gonna happen anyway.
    • Don’t judge folks by their relatives.
    • Silence is sometimes the best answer.
    • Don‘t interfere with somethin’ that ain’t botherin’ you none.
    • Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.
    • If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’.
    • Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.
    • The biggest troublemaker you’ll ever have to deal with watches you from the mirror every mornin’.
    • Always drink upstream from the herd.
    • Good judgment comes from experience, and most of that comes from bad judgment.
    • Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin’ it back in.
    • If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around.
    • Live a good, honourable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll enjoy it a second time.
    • Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.
    • Most times, it just gets down to common sense.


    I have my particular favourites. Let me know yours 🙂

    I love this… the way that bankers and politicians are bundled in with skunks 😄

    @DownPW Yes, this is the general idea. I’m also in the process of putting together a welcome message to be displayed when a new user registers so they can explore all of the services on offer.

    Quick update - I decided to do the redirect from sudonix.com to sudonix.org using Cloudflare’s Edge Network as it’s much more efficient than having to send the request to this server for it to simply then bounce back.

    @crazycells You should be able to upvote more now as I’ve located the hard coded function in the plugin responsible for this and changed it from

    maxVotesPerUser(reputation) { let MIN = 5, MAX = 50; let calculatedVotesPerUser = Math.floor(reputation / 10); if (calculatedVotesPerUser < MIN) { calculatedVotesPerUser = MIN; } else if (calculatedVotesPerUser > MAX) { calculatedVotesPerUser = MAX; } return calculatedVotesPerUser; },


    maxVotesPerUser(reputation) { let MIN = 5, MAX = 500; let calculatedVotesPerUser = Math.floor(reputation / 50); if (calculatedVotesPerUser < MIN) { calculatedVotesPerUser = MIN; } else if (calculatedVotesPerUser > MAX) { calculatedVotesPerUser = MAX; } return calculatedVotesPerUser; },

    It appears that the upvote limit is 10% of your reputation by default.

    I’m excited to announce that a new blog section has been added 😛 The blog is actually using Ghost and not NodeBB, and also sits on it’s own subdomain of https://content.sudonix.com (if you ever fancy hitting it directly).

    We’ve moved all the blog articles out of the existing category here, and migrated them to the Ghost platform. However, you can still comment on these articles just like they were part of the root system. If you pick a blog article whilst logged in


    Then choose the blog article you want to read


    Once opened, you’ll see a short synopsis of the article


    Click the link to read the rest of the post. Scroll down to the bottom, and you’ll see a space where you can provide your comments ! Take the time to read the articles, and provide your own feedback - I’d love to hear it.


    The blog component is not quite finished yet - it needs some polish, and there’s a few bugs scattered here and there, but these will only manifest themselves if a certain sequence of events is met.

    @phenomlab Inquiring minds will be curious. See my reply in the “Miscellany” thread, eh? 👍
