    Myself I think the weirdest section is where the Social Groups are, bizarro that that section is included in the Taunting Section, when the Social Groups are the opposite of the Taunting Section.

    I also think that the Social Groups would get more activity if they were not right at the very bottom of the main page.

    Welcome to the board run by an admin and mods who have no idea how to manage or moderate.

    I think this forum has a good balance, it's better than having moderators who are Bedwetting Snowflakes and if someone mentions "nipple" or "belly button" it results in an en masse mod freak out.

    Are they moving threads to it? I don't think I'd like to have a thread I started in CEs moved :confused-84: There are different rules in these zones, aren't there?

    Yes, couldn't social groups be moved out of taunting. It gives the wrong impression of what most - if not all - of the groups are about :sad:

    IDK, it's hard to keep up with different forums and different rules. Some threads you're in politics and the next thing you know you're in the FZ, annoying

    Threads there still get listed as Active or New Topics. And if it's "hot" -- it'll show in the listings just as well as if it's in any other forum. That's enough for most users to notice. Unless -- they LIVE in Politics and/or Current Events...

    Only time we do that is when there is OVERFLOW from other forums. And they go there rather than OVER merging the one or two threads ALLOWED in those forums..

    It would not moved and merged from a "lesser moderated zone" to Break News UNLESS the mod determines all posts comply with Zone2 rules for the Breaking News forum. And would NOT be moved if they are "mature". Meaning more than a couple pages of posts.

    Yesterday when the Supreme Court situation happened, there were the usual ten threads or whatever, all posted in Current Events, but Weatherman2020 who had posted the first thread he posted it in Breaking News and so all subsequent threads were merged with his thread.

    That happens anyway, if there are ten threads all about the same thing, if you notice they all start to disappear, that's because they have all been merged with the first thread.

    Breaking News is operating under Zone 2 rules, like the Politics section, Current Events is Zone 3, I think people might like Breaking News stories in a Zone 2 section because that way there is less chance of a thread derailment with all types of arguing and mini sub-threads happening within the main thread.

    "And if it's "hot"

    Well that's if I'm in the thread, then it's naturally hot by my mere presence in it :wink: :eusa_dance:
