    Just out of curiosity, how many people would want FS to be an invite only forum. I'm not even sure that it would be possible, but I assume it would be.

    Say someone wants access, they could simply PM someone or a mod with access and get an invite, if they start posting :barf: to everything.. remove their access?

    It would solve the outpouring of lame responses to posts, and imo bring FS back to the serious discussion of FS.

    I for one don't like posting/sharing much in here anymore because it always seems to find its way to the main OT forum.

    Thoughts?

    I voted bad idea. I still think this should be an open forum. I would vote for more mods, stricter moderation, FS supermod though.

    i disagree.. most of the time these mods ban just because they want to.. even the supermods.. i think we have enough mods as it is... now if they were really serious about their title, then yes.. but since most of them are just power crazy.. no

    i like the idea. but im not convinced it would work. how could we get new members? you never know if someone is going to be retarded or if they are going to add to the forum. but there is potential there to make it work.

    Well what I was thinking was you would automatically get accepted if you show interest, but you could quickly have that privilage taken away if you act out.

    i see. that would require alot of moderation. if the mods are up to it then i think its a great idea.

    It seems like the only posts that DONT get shit responses are posts that really could be in vaginarium, as they aren't really freaky. FS didn't use to be like this.

    Yeah, but you could easily just get access the way I'm proposing it. It's not like you'd be locked out.

    :dunno:

    You act like I was personally assaulting you or something.

    There might be some people (like a few of the lurkers who just posted) that are interested but don't want to have to PM some stranger to gain access to the FS forum.

    What's the differance between an open forum, and an invite forum that automatically allows access on request.

    Oh, let me guess, you can lose your access. Isn't this what moderators are for?

    Requiring people to request access will result in a lot of access requests. Once access is available, you are back to square one.

    Go to extremely strict, almost harsh moderation for a few (3-4) weeks. One infraction, short couple day ban. Repeat offences lead to progressively longer bans. It would limit negative commentary, and casual derisive commeteers would eventually get tired of wasting time.

    This forum NEEDS to be free from negative feedback, except as noted in the guidelines re: health concerns, et cetera.

    True. Is there a way to restrict access to people that don't play by the rules to just this forum then? Because that's the ultimate goal in what I'm proposing as banning them from OT in general isn't as easy to justify.

    No clue on that one. I just found out about OT about a month ago. The threat of losing all OT access should help prevent maliciousness.

    This is a subforum. Kinda like breaking the law in a town and getting kicked out of the state.

    How serious is the issue. Has the sub-forum degradedthat much? If so, take a stand.

    Well, to be totally honest, this forum is nothing like it used to be imo. It used to almost never have people coming in and being asses. You'd still get the occaisional tard who would take pics from here and post them in the main forum but there wasn't the huge influx of pointless posts like is the case now. Most all discussions were serious, if someone didn't like someone elses freakyness they'd just leave it alone, now we get stupid comments.

    :dunno: maybe it's just me, but it feels like a totally different environment.

    true story. Haven't thought of a solution that has no negative effects yet, but the current influx is a big negative on its own.

    in a way, I think you kind of are

    what lurker, who rarely posts anyway, wants to take the time to have to type a PM to whatever mod happens to be on at the time (and what if they've just left and it hasn't auto-logged them out yet) and then have to sit and wait for approval before they post

    no way, not cool imo, not cool at all

    I don't like the bullshit threads and replies anymore than the rest of you, but I'd rather ignore them or edit them than risk the loss of some of our lurkers who only feel the need to post once in a great while, they should have that right without the hassle

    this is the internet, not your hometown, not your neighbors, not your best friend, it's made for people all over the place to talk about all sorts of stuff

    if you don't have the balls to talk about what you want here then you don't, I personally could care less what of mine gets dragged up to the main forum because I simply don't give a fuck what they think up there, let them be entertained by me if they want, and I've met a ton of them already so for me it's not as anonymous as it is for many of the rest of you

    to me, part of what's freaky about f/s is people not hiding what they are or what they like, not being ashamed of it

    there will always be assholes, and asking for persmission into the forum won't stop them, they ask, we'll allow, they'll be dicks and we'll have to edit them out the same way we do now, there is no way to tell if someone is going to play nice and fair till they actually start posting
