And, the discussion is good. I think the two 'sides' are not quite as far apart any longer and when that happens usually I don't need to do as much to make people happy as when they are still at opposite ends of the spectrum.
Hi Lynne! Sometimes a decision does need to be made. I think the ultimate joke is on everyone taking it seriously 1 side or another and you, as The Creator, get to kick back like Lisa Simpson, or was it Eric Cartman, or maybe Jesus... who created this whole artifical world just for pure entertainment and then to sit and watch it burn... Still knowing you created the whole time. You don't want to make it that easy, you want to sit back and see where it goes... I guess that is what I would do if I were you. Just no shirts...


Edit: Uh-Oh, you refer to yourself in the third person now...

There are a few no votes that could not post any more unless the time between post requirements were removed.

Some that voted they would not post more, could not post more unless the time between posting requirements were removed. They are already whores.

@ Craig/Direwolf

Why don't you just leave the modding to the mods with this thread and stick to your server activities. This thread is being watched by Lynne and a host of other mods. You are a little too close to the topic at hand to really be modding it effectively. I thought James said that you only mod when necessary?

Talk to you later Craig. Thanks for all the help you do around here with the server. I probably haven't mentioned that enough.

Craig, you need to cease moving / editing posts. That isn't your role.

Nice ratio.



I had a look at those Steve Hoffman forums, and yikes! I'll take irreverence over hard-core wankery any day. I prefer my unicorns slightly twisted but free to roam. YMMV.

I am all for giving people the respect they have earned, but if one earnestly posts in the lounge about liking Miley Cyrus, well...they would be foolish not to expect some negative attention.

When dealing with a lightly moderated forum, it's best not to take yourself or most anything that is said too seriously.

As far as the quality of the people who post there, see above. ^

That being said, it can't hurt anyone to be nicer. When all else fails there's always the ignore feature. Works for users, threads and forums.

Re: Why don't you visit the Lounge @ TTD? (public poll)

How many people with less than 1000 posts have posted in this thread? Methinks it's turned into an opportunity for the same old people to complain about the same old people.

exactly. But they do average 400 users in their GD with 200 people minimum.
its a mix of hardcore A/V nerds and a handful of serious audio engineers.. like Atlantic records/major label audio engineers. pretty cool.
when I showed up there a post or two were deleted daily had to adjust the mouth management. I like that forum. its alright when I need a break from here.

Ummm....I hadn't even given a thought to visiting the Lounge until now, so maybe the poll or the question about moderation has at least inspired me to check it out. We'll see how it goes, I reckon.

Re: Why don't you visit the Lounge @ TTD? (public poll)

For the record, I find myself spending less time here NOT because of the content but because of changes in my life. Work is considerably busier, I've got greater responsibility at home, and I have other distractions (Facebook, Fantasy Football which I started playing because of TTD). I like what CC said regarding the ignore feature. I dont' employ the "feature" per se, but if people or topics or threads bother me, I steer clear. The Zep Lineage threads and Politics forums are two examples.

There are other long time/old time members of this forums who rarely or never post here anymore. I can say with some accuracy that they are in the same or similar situation as I am; life doesn't afford the message board hang out time it once did. So regardless of the amount of moderation, increase or decrease in the enforcement of rules, etc, none of it will have as much impact on my time spent here as all of the real life factors that already dictate how much time I spend @ TTD, what threads I post in and who I choose to "socialize' with.

If put to an official and binding vote, I'd vote against any increase in rules and enforcement and such. This place and its predecessor have ALWAYS ebbed and flowed with regards to the amount of trolling, nastiness and personal attacks along with the moderation of those activities. Six and a half years later, TTD is still here and things seem to work themselves out. That's not to say that anyone else's opinion is wrong, I'm just offering mine.

:2cents:
