If rules are going to be posted, then adjust them to reflect what is to be expected and stay true to moderating it using them.

For the first paragraph: isn't that what you can already do with a social group?

For the bold part: I see that as something that should have be going on in the forums anyways... never mind in a new forum.

I do not understand what you are saying. Yes I can create a private social group and do whatever I want with it.

Who are you suggesting create a social group, the ones that do not want changes or the ones that do?

I see the social groups as a sort of redundancy with having them along side of a message board. I could see if the discussion forums did not exist at all and it was just downloading on the baords and then the social groups were the areas for discussion.

Really not that bad of an idea, but it feels like a long way around something easier.

Either update the rules to reflect what is allowed and enforce them, regardless of what level of rules were placed or removed. Or just enforce the ones that are already there, or as the majority likes to call it. Heavy handed moderation. I still do not see that. The rules are simple and pretty easy to understand, yet clearly not followed and somewhat a joke at this point.

Doesn't creating a social group for the "ones that do" or "do not" solve that part of the issue and you make your own rules.

Then the only other issue is "forum rules".

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

Pralines are awesome. Especially if they just came out of the oven like you get 'em downtown in the candy shops.

I don't get up there very often, well to the shops, but I'll let you know on that sometime soon.

Oh, and i'm not trying to control anything Bill. I'm just pw'ing - you know, throw some shit to the wall and see what sticks.

You really think the Lounge could handle 12 users?

I suppose there would be ways that would make them a bit more noticable.

Not surprising. There are numerous discussion sub forums and that is where most of the discussion takes place.





I tried to keep that short and sweet as to keep it inside of what appears to be a mild case of old person ADD.

Yes, I would know. You ever put roasted peanuts in a coke? They come out all soft and mushy and make the coke flat. It's fucking bullshit, and that is what pralines have the texture of.

But, what you didn't see was that yes, some posts were moved to the thread in The Lounge, and then I asked Staff to please let me mod these threads and I was told No Problem. It wasn't some big debate that had to happen. Usually I welcome the help modding this forum, but I was trying to watch these two threads myself this time and hadn't stated that to Staff.

I would say that we do get along as a whole. I'm not saying we don't have disagreements though, because we do. But, for the most part, they stay pretty civil and get worked out. How can you not take a group of random people and put them together and not have disagreements though? I think if you took anyone on Staff and had them run the site, it would be different than how it is now. Different is not necessarily bad. We just all have different opinions on things. But, nobody gets upset if the decision goes right when they wanted left. Just like, if we change things in The Lounge, no one will have a hissy fit if they were against the change.

I honestly think TTD has pretty cool Staff.

Translation: Post hardcore pornography in this thread, and if I am not around, the staff have to sit on their hands and leave it until I am back to clean it up.

Perhaps if some of the issues I brought up were not a problem it would have been easier to see that. To me it sure appeared to be more of the same treatment from Craig. Selective deleting of posts, and editing his after the person he is talking to is no longer logged on. Get's old quick.

I do appreciate you stepping in here, and appreciate your dedication to some of the missions we set forth so long ago.

Good. That is how it should be

I guess I will have to trust you on that, and I do. I have recieved a nice 'Fuck You' PM that said nothing else from Craig. You can see for yourself who is tagging all the threads I post in, feels like someone is having a hissy fit just about proposed change.

Quote:

I can not dispute that and know that I have done plenty to deserve the reputation I have. I will say that the majority of the staff has been very receptive and cool talking with me, in threads and PMs. You have a great staff of interesting and talented characters that for the most part can take what they dish out and are willing to listen.
