Re: Is there an explicit ratio policy here?

...Hello 'possessed'.......the word association thread is in the Lounge.....You should have taken a left turn at Albuquerque, maroon.














This site jumped the shark when it allowed the "word association thread" trolls like 'possessed' to roam freely throughout.

Does he even have a clue that this is a music site?

Maybe he needs the site owner to s-l-o-w-l-y explain the r-a-t-i-o situation to him alone, so he needn't troll in the music area any longer.

Re: Is there an explicit ratio policy here?

I just realized this thread is not in the lounge.. I had assumed it was, due to the content... I appologize to the suggestion mod(s) for talking shit in here. Maybe this should be moved to the lounge? It hasn't been very constructive.

I saw this thread as VERY productive, since the site owner told everyone once what she thinks of ratios...PERIOD. Maybe this thread isn't productive to those that can't change her mind?

Maybe this thread should be in the Lounge though.

Keep the trolls like jameskg and possessed in one place.

I voiced *my* opinion on ratios, sure, but other people have different opinions. If policy here was to be changed, then the majority of Staff would have to agree to change it - not just me.

But yeah, guys, this thread is to discuss what the original poster brought up - whether we have a ratio policy. If you guys want to continue to lounge post, y'all know where The Lounge is.

uh-huh......well........The Lounge is just the place for this thread now that any and all dissenting opinions are met with a few trollish remarks......let 'em bash one another lights out over there.



Maybe that's why it's been suggested to move this thread.



You might have noticed that I am out of the Lounge since 2006 and I've refused to ask for the 'privledge' to return.

Best that I stay out of an area so over-run with sanctioned and official trolls.

I see ol 'bullet noticed this while he's still trolling this thread. <snicker>

Nothing gets past Mr. Jambalaya......


What I've noticed......repeatedly....I've noticed that dissenting opinions are usually less than tolerated by certain overly-dogmatic individuals at TTD....




However, I thought we were talking about ratios here.


Looks like I mis-understood that when Lynne made a remark that it was an 'opinion' and not 'policy'. I apoloogize, Lynne.


Is there any chance of a decision about ratios that can be written down?

Something in concrete?

Re: Is there an explicit ratio policy here?

This thread isn't going to be moved, however it is tempting to go prune out the non-ratio related posts in this thread.

What is there to write down? We currently do not ban anyone for low ratios, thus there is nothing that states "You Will Be Banned If Your Ratio Goes Below .XX". We've always emphasized sharing on this site in many different ways and that is what our response has always been in threads like this and it is even written on the front page of the site (I'm pretty sure). But, that doesn't mean users can't bring up the idea of banning for low ratios. They get frustrated when people leech and run and they should be allowed to talk about it cuz it IS frustrating! So, we discuss it and talk about why we don't ban for low ratios. Now, if things got to be really bad, and where that line is I don't know, then we may start to seriously think about banning for low ratios. But I don't currently see things being that bad.

Re: Is there an explicit ratio policy here?

I do know that i have a shit ratio, and im actually sorry for that.
I did not read the whole thread, perhaps this was mentioned before, but i think you should not ban people, as you said this is a trading site, just make them not download anything, so, when they fall under e.g 0.20 they can't download anything or so.

BTW im trying to put my ratio up to 1.0
Cheers

And that's the difference, you are trying, not bitching. You have only d/l about 5 dvds worth of stuff. It takes a while before you can get caught up.

I think that's the best reason to not have ratio enforcements. Gives the new folks a chance to get in on it.

Research, Spe, research.

This thread was 'bumped' because of another thread.
