The staff here are also users. They mod specific areas and are patrons in the others. They're already a cut above the average user because they know there are rules.

And they're volunteers....

Re: The discussion areas of TTD

There was that one guy that was kind of incoherent. I think he may have called us all psychopaths, but I'm not sure, really. If he'd dropped into the lounge 2 years ago, even Vlad would have eaten him alive.

Re: The discussion areas of TTD

I wonder why R-O has a more active forum than we do with 1/10 the userbase and very strict moderation. Is it because it is a single interest forum?

It is because that single use is no longer of much interest to the userbase.

hardly any of the regular posters there are actively downloading anything... it's a Led Zeppelin coffee house, now, rather than a music exchange site.

I'd say it was 90% music downloading and 10% discussion outside the torrent threads 5 years ago. Now it is likely exactly opposite of those figures.

The difference is that TTD is still about music sharing and R-O has evolved into mainly a discussion forum since everyone already has all the Led Zeppelin they will ever need after 7 years of trading it digitally.
Not saying there is anything wrong with that.. that is just how it is.

hmmm...maybe, maybe not. I don't think that explains why. I'm not sure that can be known. Just an observation, though.

I do not want a g-rated board and I love a lot of the things that others may find offensive and understand that the line is different for everyone.

I do maintain that there is an element there that is ugly and that it does nothing but bring more of it around. I do not think addressing these would or should equate to a speech regulated police state or would create any kind of boring discussion forum.

It is the lounge and will always be too crude for some, but doesn't need to allow people to do whatever they please.



As far as the back and forths between people, just keep those lovefests to one thread. IE - (Freezer loves James, Wolfie loves toys, anyone who is sick of bill_kate)

They can be very entertaining reads and I have picked up some great new insults to use when I am at an actual bar. Just keep em contained.

I am not for any sort of New Order Board.

Just get rid of the blatant obvious shit.

Not to mention most new users don't realize that you can't d/l 5 shows your first week and keep a positive ratio. Thereby effectively getting bashed with "your ratio sucks and so do you n00b" comments.
