Excerpt from a legal advice site. Dovetails nicely with what JoJo has written in guidlines:
Please stop the red headed stepchild jokes! I too am a red headed stepchild and my feelings have been hurt!
Sorry…couldn’t help myself.
Exactly that ^
ELR has grown out of it’s baby grow…but all things you say you miss from what it used to be like?..create them?..There’s an infinite amount of threads to be made…so make them?..all the questions about mixing and flavours and all things DIY still need to be asked…so ask them?
Your looking at things the wrong way, so what if there is more stuff that you’re not that interested in, there’s also a shit load of new people to cater for, who have more questions on all aspects of vaping…lead by example, make the things you want the most, you have the tools at your fingertips to do it.
The only reason things have changed is because of growth…you show me a well run forum that doesn’t grow, shit forums die, and this isn’t one of them, and because everyone here has made it so good it will inevitably attract more people…you cannot avoid that and you cannot have it both ways.
Good forum = more people
more people = more topics
more topics = more diversity
It’s up to everyone here to make the forum how they want it to be, there really isn’t that many trolls here, farrr less than any other forum I am a part of.
Amen. This is a site of attraction not promotion. Be the person you want to see in others. If there’s a problem put a spotlight on it. Be part of the solution not part of the problem.
I like that so much.
Voting is closed. Sorry to anyone who didn’t get a chance. I’m not surprised about the results. All that has been said here and the results will be taken into advisement. Staff will discuss, Lars will be contacted if necessary, the announcement will be amended if needed.
Any further discussion at this point is purely for your own conjecture/pleasure/amusement/need/whatever.
well that was a short break
I tried to ban her but i cant…
You know how after a big storm passes, it’s close to twilight, and you go outside? Smell the ionized air, splash around in a few puddles, see a rainbow and watch the sunset, and enjoy the break from the summer heat and humidity? Yeah, that’s like here right now.
I never signed up for that, nor have I seen anything like this mentioned in the site’s guidelines. It’s not in my personality to point fingers at people and call for reinforcement when I don’t agree.
I understand some people feel the need to, but there are probably just as many who’d rather not, not to mention that a lot of the stuff is very much grey area in people’s perception as you can read in this thread.
People are allowed to flag anything they don’t like but it’s far from a responsibility that lies with the regular site users. Hence they also shouldn’t be blamed for being part of the problem either.
I assume that veterans don’t have the same powers than moderators, but it still means that those people have been here for a while, should know the rules and preferably follow them too and act with an exemplary behavior. If a veteran sees that something’s going awry, I don’t think it’s right to not act and wait until a moderator shows up or until a regular user finds the hidden flag button, just because his speciality are custards or making staggered fused claptons.
Wow, that vote went fast… 10000 visitors a day and it gets closed off after not even 60 votes?
With what went on the last few days. I’m assuming @JoJo did some soul searching during her break. And as any good moderator would do took actions based on the course she decided to take… which is a good thing…
For which part?
Well no one but the person taking offense can express such, so if they don’t feel their feelings are worth speaking up for, they have bigger issues. But that still doesn’t relieve them of the responsibility to let it be known, OR they accept (by default) that they don’t have a say in the matter. And that’s an even bigger shame IMO.
I was saying the responsibility lies with ALL community members. If you took it any other way, I’m sorry for the misunderstanding.
If they don’t speak up, and are sitting there pissed off, no one else knows, or could be expected to know. So yes. Those sitting in silence are to blame for not speaking up, for whatever reason, if they’re dissatisfied.
They are just regular users.
It still wouldn’t hurt to put a mandatory reason for the edit with it, with perhaps a copy of the original title as well
The original wording on the title can be seen when you click on the pencil after the edit is done.
i meant to reply to you with this but I got sidetracked many times over lol…we were asked categorically to either edit or delete the reviews, so very much tarred with the brush of filth lol
Wow! This is a huge thread. Too much to read. And I missed the vote. I see this has become a pretty big issue. I don’t think it should be, everything is great at ELR besides a couple ppl going a little to far on the innuendos in multiple threads. Just tell those ppl to take it to the saloon or NSFW and everything is good.
