I'll hazard to wager that if the GALLERIES were restored, people would be too busy curating their collections to engage in such MALARKY and HIJINKS.

Just sayin'.
Not happy about it either. But since we've kept EVERYTHING since DAY 1 -- the archiving/indexing was getting ridiculous.. LONGER to make changes and update. Longer/heavier loads for maintenance.

The "attachment" thing seems to work better with more file types.. And it's pretty quick.. Probably quicker than the old process of uploading/storing the stuff in the galleries..

"Search" is also acting more useful in this update.. It really was spotty/sucky before...
Well, I had galleries going back years, and never expected them to be deleted without warning. That was a bad move by the HEGEMONY.
the Hedgemony is catching up on their golf game.. You gotta know them to love them...

So, I can still make friends in the taunting arena?
Seriously, things are much more civil in the Taunting forums. JUVENILE, but civil... I've made MOST of my friends there.
How dare you call us juvenile!!! Now I'm going to be moody, petulant and angry all day long. Thanks!!!! :mad:
Start a thread about it.. In the appropriate forum of course... Oh wait we don't have an "Anger Management forum -- try Health...,. :2up:

Just wondering'''is directing a female poster to give head jobs off limits?? I've reported that a few times from "the badlands" but they seem to get away with it; just wondering.

Greg
Downstairs you can say or do anything.
Almost anything. Stay away from inferring a posters is a pedo, stay away from bestiality, and stay away from attacking a poster's family.
Everything else is pretty much accepted.
PS....no porn
You forgot if you're black you are free to attack white people but if you're white you BETTER not attack a negro.

One would be enough.. They really have a hard time getting along once they're grown.. When I was biking to work in Holland, you had to be real careful not to run them over...

While we're here... Here's another IMPORTANT REQUEST... Don't whine about your threads getting tossed into Badlands or Rubber Room 10 minutes into their life --- IF ---- you cannot control yourself and write a RELATIVELY clean title and Opening Post..

We expect MORE out of the OP.. Including framing a discussion that isn't flaming bait, and holding your fire until somewhere around pg2... What APPEARS on the 1st page -- PREDICTS where the thread is headed... Dont blame us for YOU starting a bar fight instead of a discussion...

Also a major sin is having the OP NOT honoring and supporting their own freaking topic.. Trolling your thread is an admission that you dont care enough about the topic you just posted...
I've seen threads go downstairs and I cannot for the life of me figure out why. It would be extremely helpful and probably eliminate a little work for you guys if the mod who moves a thread would explain WHY. There is nothing like showing a good example of what you think "baiting" is to help people not do that.

Thread posters are held to higher standards than the people who respond.. That's ALWAYS been our M.O. If they can't write a title and O.P. that is NOT an invitation to brawl -- that on them.. "Invitation to brawl" is also the "operating definition of the "baiting and polarizing" rule about writing OPosts.

Invites to brawl are welcome in the Taunting Forums.. OPs that write them 2 or 3 times a day get warnings or bans.. They should put them there THEMSELVES.. A thread that get off the rails on the FIRST PAGE -- is usually the result.. Because the OPoster steered it that way..,

Sometimes the thread just gets stale.. Maybe around page 15, there's no topic left, and TOO MUCH TO CLEAN to get it legal again -- but there IS a discussion going on.. We move those to Zone3 as a courtesy -- not a punishment...

AND -- if thread starter trolls their OWN thread -- it gets closed, moved or trashed with a warning.. Because we shouldn't have to being cleaning THEIR content in THEIR threads..

It's just amazing how many times a day this happens.. If the topic is IMPORTANT enough for you to RACE to USMB to post it -- take some responsibility for starting it as a discussion...

Yesterday or two days ago, I reported several posts that seems trolling to me, yet nothing was done. it was about providing the evidence he NEVER provide I keep pointing out, that he repeats that I already know the answer, I was getting the impression he was just toying with me, but I though such behavior should be discouraged. I am the one who POSTED hard evidence that Trump didn't say he is losing the election, it was being taken out of context, yet I get trolled over it by one particular person, this is my LAST POST to him:

"Yet you can't seen to show the evidence....., imagine that!

You can prove your claim, by posting the evidence, or you can leave."

=====

I am working on a couple projects that will soon take me away from here, places where Moderation will be more consistent. Be owner of one existing forum and be an Administrator of another forum to help them whip that messy front page into good order.

Someday the forum leaders HERE will finally understand why so many threads gets moved out of public view, it partly because the trolling/flaming/Off topic, doesn't get stopped hard! Should be closing threads down long before you need to move the mess to the Rubber room or badlands.

I have NEVER been a fan of allowing Trolling/taunting/flaming posts in threads to continue in public, then be moved to the hidden failed threads part of the forum, where their rule breaking behavior is now allowed to run free, that NEVER makes sense to me. It is part of the reason WHY you have so many failed threads in the forum, it is the biggest failure this forum has.

People who don't debate, just play games, troll, should be told to get off the thread, PERIOD!

Actually I did report a mod 3 or 4 times and NOTHING happened usually because the mod in question is looking at the report. I got banned by the same mod twice for responding to THEIR post.
Then find 2 or 3 mods and open a PM... A LOT of time, folks THINK they know which mod "banned them"... Truth is that over 1/2 of our bans are AUTOMATICALLY doled out by the s/ware on the basis of TOO MANY warnings in TOO LITTLE time.. And generally, that person has other warnings in their inbox from OTHER mods when the final one TRIPS the limit...
This is where the owners mess up, they haven't replaced Cereal Killer who used to head the Moderator team (which should be standard on large forums) as Administrator, such a person can be the mediator in such disputes (behind the scenes of course) this way it doesn't simmer unresolved.

I strongly disagree with that Automatic software ban idea, since they can and do make mistakes banning someone because it doesn't think, it just react to a trigger. ALL banning should be done by a Moderator (who are supposed to be the cream of the forum membership) on a case by case basis, that way it is done by someone who can be audited by the administrator if banning's are considered unjust or reactionary (Mods are human, can get emotional), the software can't be appealed at all, and as stated by the chief Moderator it can be done without immediate flesh and blood moderators knowledge.
