To improve this board, I suggest creating an OPEN thread with fewer restrictions. I hate barriers and controls, anyway. I get enough of that sh*t in everyday life. It’s via special access for members who want to participate. This is a bar scene, a comedy club, a strip club, whatever. It’s like Vegas instead of the other Politically Correct forums. But what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Mods can decide the extent. Language is more free-flowing, humor is there, and people there can feel more themselves. This place needs an outlet, that’s for damn sure.
I’ll be there, and will be on this board much more.
We had a forum like that once, with no moderation at all (except to erase porn links and things like that). Problem is, not many people posted in there. It must have had like 10 or 12 threads max in its history, so it's not like it was a big success.
Maybe we could try something like that in the off-topic, instead of creating a new forum. Be more careful with what we allow on the Warriors forum (and others) and relax the grip a bit more on the off-topic. That could be an option.
I remember that, but I though it was for people to flame and what have you. As for the Off Topic forum, well, other people who might be sensitive to things or language use that forum, too. That would be like sticking a Hooters bar inside the Vatican. It won’t fly.
I’d like to suggest designating a place (could even be a thread) where some can feel more at ease and others who are sensitive can/have to stay away. That’s how a community works with different places and venues for various people to go to. It’s unfortunate that it has to be this way because this is just a Internet Sports Message Board (and a great one), not our church, or a political party site, or an activist affiliation site, etc. You’ll have some disagreements at times (no direct insults, of course), but so what? People are entitled to their opinions just like the ones being vocal.
And if something can be learned via a good, honest/lighthearted talk, the better.
F*ck! I just noticed. 700 Club
