Site URL Change

If you’re here you’ve probably figured this already. We had to change the site URL from biasedbbc.org to biasedbbc.tv.  This cock-up was due to a combination of errors – mainly due to the domain registrar being bought out and and transferring the domain to the parent company without telling us.  They also didn’t keep the correct domain settings, so the site became unreachable.  Due to them being overwhelmed by not-so-happy customers it’s proved rather difficult to get to our domain and fix it!  We thought it quicker just to change domain name as it was getting a bit frustrating.

So sorry about the downtime…

I’m going to send out an email to our user base to notify everyone.  If you would prefer we don’t have your user account any more feel free to use the contact form (biasedbbc.tv/contact) and we’ll remove your details.

        At least the, ‘Thugs of the World’ (Russians) and their now so called, “allies”, “the Worlds thieves” (Chinese) have a plan. While the rest of the developed World has not it exhibits the principles of ‘Flower Pot Management’ (FPM). ‘FPM’ is an expression I came across in business in the late 60’s early 70′ and it relates to those practitioners’ waking up in the morning and randomly changing everything, irrespective of the consequences and whether it will work or not.
        Go no further that the Fake Presidents reversal of everything Trump.

        Btw, question: for how long will the Russians put up with the Chinese stealing their technology and claiming that Vladivostok is in Chinese territory?

          I tend to view the witterings of the award winning victim that is Ms. Spring and her ‘Author! Author!’ colleagues in the USA later in the day, but as the world goes to hell in a hand basket the efforts of close colleagues are a good guide.

          Seems big tech’s solution to the BLM narrative being so off it is embarrassing, is they are now banning any mention of it. Very BBC ‘not newsworthy’. That’ll work.

          Meanwhile, sex sells.

          News that Justin (not Rowlatt) has bought seven veils and has a new dance routine IS eagerly awaited by all state broadcast networks.

          Apparently. BBC Press Office might even buy ads on social media.

      Ah – you might have to clear cookies and site data in your web browser settings. Try and make sure you do this just for biasedbbc.tv (and biasedbbc.org if it’s still in there) otherwise you’ll log yourself out of all websites you visit!

      I’m just looking at Firefox on Windows and the settings are in Options -> Cookies & Site Data -> Manage Data. It’s similar for most browsers. I seem to recall a few users having problems particularly with Opera browser regarding cookies fairly recently.

      If you don’t clear cookies/site data, this problem should gradually disappear anyway over the next few days or so as cookies expire.
      By default WordPress sites (like this one) have cookies expire after 48 hours, or 14 days if the “Remember Me” option is ticked on login.

    Neil Oliver 1 hour appearance on Triggernometry
    “Scotland is a Country Split Down the Middle”

       7 likes

    • Roysyboy says:

      Neil Oliver tells stories that are, unfortunately, passed-off as serious history. For example, he refers to “Britain” existing even when it was still connected, 6,000 years ago, by the landbridge which then disappeared. The word “Britain” had, then, yet to be invented.
      It is somewhat remarkable that, in his above quote, Oliver acknowledges that Scotland is a “country”. The latter term has two uses: either geographical; or as the territory over which a state directly exercises control. Oliver, as a political hack of the UK state’s official TV-channel, the BBC, doubtless finds it expedient to recognise Scotland as being a “country” rather than acknowledge the existence of the Scottish “nation”.
      No, it is the SCOTTISH NATION that contains differences of opinion. In my opinion, a “yes”- “no” referendum is not the best way forward. Instead, a constituent assembly should be voted-into-existence, and tasked with deciding “Scotland’s” future state-relations.
      In essence, it has already decided to stay in the EU, i.e., it is not “split down the middle” on THIS question.

        Hi Fed, I don’t know whether you intend the .tv version to be the permanent solution but as a web guy it would be a shame to lose your google number one ranking spot for the .org site. If you get back control of the old domain I would suggest you consider putting in what is know as a permanent (301) redirect to the new site. Hopefully then google will just pick up the new sites relevance and position where the old one left off.

        I am sure this has crossed Rufus’s mind and a well deserved well done to him!

          We bought up .net as well just in case of future silliness and that redirects to .tv too.

          It was once biasedbbc.com and we managed to lose that once upon a time too through a similar act of idiocy (OK largely self-inflicted in that case). Unfortunately that domain is several thousand quid now as opposed to 10 or 20, so not going to happen!

    Re: site change. Not too keen on it, and I think we have lost half the readership moving from .org to .tv

    Its not just the BBC mindset portrayed on TV but its Radio effort that falls short. Not keen on new ending at all.

    Anyway, I do know a little on these internet things and I can conform that it is possible to keep the ‘old’ biasedbbc.org and get it to divert automatically to biasedbbc.tv This is usually done by the new ISP who can simply divert a URL from one domain to another. This should be set up straight away, as it takes weeks for Google to pick up and list (and less keen if it does not like the content, as we know). At the moment readers (without an account) think we have been taken off air.

    So Rufus (IT)- perhaps you can look into that. Keep the old domains as well as the new one, just divert it to the new.

    What search terms will do the trick? How can we spread the word without presenting someone with a specific link?

    “Biased BBC” certainly doesn’t bring it up.

    As much as one draws comfort from renewed contact with the familiar old crowd, ultimately, is there much point in just talking among ourselves?

    I’m reminded for some reason of that rather cosy Richard Briers BBC sitcom Ever Decreasing Circles.
