what happened?

topic posted Thu, September 2, 2010 - 8:52 PM by  Unsubscribed

There was a thread on tribe brainstorm titled "someone needs to do something." It is missing. Does anyone know why it was deleted? Was it really that poorly written or did trolls and anti-trolls give rise to tribe censorship for the common good again?

    Again, I'm wondering if it had to do with the emergency maintenance the other night. Something went wrong that required the site to be taken down for a little while. I don't know what. There have been a few issues since then, the weird and the wacky, mentioned over on Bugs tribe. Some of those things are "fixed" now, some aren't.

    Depending on what all was in it, it might have been deleted to keep the Google search boxes. Certainly THIS tribe and Bugs (especially bugs) should have the search boxes.

    It's a long weekend, so many people won't be around. I don't know if Carolyn will be around or not. Just try not to break anything. ;-)

      well I guess it can be said that the thread titled, "someone needs to do something" disappeared due to someone or something doing something. All is well that ends well. Can't complain when something gets done after something was demanded I suppose.

        I can't believe there may be actually a moderator at work here at last...

          At last? One would think an adult site wouldn't need so much babysitting.

          I don't recall when the thread in question was removed, but I suspect the conversation had devolved to the point where it was completely off topic for this tribe.

            If it needs babysitting maybe it is full of alot of babies?

            Babies in grownup size Depends adult diapers. So gross.

              Weell...if the admins regard paying any attention to the brainstorm tribe "babysitting", I am no longer surprised most people here are not trying to come up with any good ideas. Waste of energy.
              This particular baby here feels ever more disenchanted with this network.

                  I agree.

                  I have not left the tribe in the hope it will get back to its original intent.. but most people have simply jumped ship or dont read it anymore. I know this because I have asked 'em about it and why they no longer participate in this tribe.

                    Do you have a brainstorm to add? If so, add it.

                    Perfectly on-topic thread right here:

                    Carolyn has talked about the new version that will be coming out. What parts of the new version sound good? What is confusing? What are you wondering about? What kinds of things were you hoping would be included? What would make it easier for you as a member? What would make it easier for you as a moderator?

                    Are you prepared to go with an MPAA rating system? Are you adequately objective over subject matter contained in tribes? Do you understand the necessity for such ratings?

                    Old movie, rated G:

                    As soon as Kurt starts leering and butt grabbing, it changes ratings. If it goes into the porn realm, if only for a short scene, it stays in the porn realm. Agree? Disagree?

                    How will that affect your tribes? Will you create a G tribe and an X tribe to carry similar subjects, but with more explicit references in the X tribe?

                    Do you understand why this tribe has to be open to all? Even a series of alts that constantly complain, it still may be on topic and drive discussions. Because those alts may well express a point of view that is common or not unheard of.


                    If you aren't coming up with ideas yourself, and only come to complain, CONGRATULATIONS, you've just become what you don't want to see here...a complainer complaining about tribe.

                    How many times do I need to point that out? How many more years must pass before you understand it?

                    WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM THIS SITE?

                    What features or benefits would you like to see? Have you seen them elsewhere so that you can post a link for everyone to see or send a link to Carolyn so she can look it over.

                    I've sent links to Carolyn from other sites I'm on and told her how various features can be good and not so good and flat out abused.

                    I've spent my time posting things in the photo gallery that I created and that I thought would be a nice option. As a result, I got to hear other member's opinions. They liked it. They didn't like it. They didn't care one way or another.

                    If the ONLY people posting here are people complaining, including yourself, that's all it's ever going to be. Me? I'll keep looking around and bringing in ideas, even if it turns out everyone thinks they are stupid. And I'll spend my time trying to document bugs or creating images of things I think would be nice for

                    I can't churn out a brilliant idea every day. I can't even churn out a crappy idea every day. But at least I'm TRYING.

                    TRY, man, TRY.

                      Here are two ancient ideas I had way back when...

                      Photos idea for profiles:

                      Color picker idea for profiles:

                      I like those colors. Uh...

                      No, not with photoshop. That software is so old (how old is it?) that not only does it not exist anymore, but the company that made it doesn't exist anymore either. And it still WORKS. Awesome.

                      I send Carolyn screen shots and links to sites I go to. I tell her what I like and don't like. As to whether or not it is a part of the NEW tribe version, I don't know. But at least I made efforts to give ideas. Both a long time ago and now in present time.

                      Don't complain about no one else having any entertaining or interesting ideas for the site if you don't have any either. SOMEONE has to come up with ideas.

                      It's like an audience at a comedy club with no comedian. Everyone complains but no one is funny.

                        Don't mind me. Another two people died and three are in the hospital from a local accident. It's a dangerous road, and people have died on it before. But no matter how many people are hit or killed, we still can't get a lower speed limit, traffic signals, or speed limit enforcement.

                        So that whole rant bit about "how many many years" is direct frustration with what happened on the road as well as here on tribe. Although the road thing is considerably more important.


                        In the video (at 1:04) where the young man tosses a bouquet of flowers on the rest of the flowers, in the background, there's a light pole. Also a bus stop. That's where someone else was killed. Directly across the street from the accident is where many people have driven off the road and up the hill, into trees.

                        I guess I'll make that my new project. I tried before to get some action on the area, but was rebuffed by Traffic Engineering. More people have died since I last tried, so, maybe NOW they will listen.
