    It's not all about us, though. It's about the staff and the unnecessary shit they cause.

    Now see Buddha, this is exactly why nobody even "tries" to have an intellectual discussion about site operations here. You begged and begged for some legitimate input, and then when that input is given to you....you brush it all aside with simplistic excuses and even more rhetoric. Now mind you, chances are you'll walk away from this exchange just saying..."But DaGuru just likes to argue, that wasn't really intelligent discussion'....but the point is the points I'm about to make ARE SINCERE AND HONEST THOUGHTS that just so happen to counter your thought process. Point by point...let me show you the folly in some of your thoughts....
    While your suggestions are good ideas, there is nothing new here.

    The ideas themselves may not be "new" per se....however the TRIAL AND IMPLEMENTATION OF MOST OF THEM has never even been attempted as far as I know....at least not since Zok became admin of the old Totse.

    So while you want to try to minimize those ideas right out of the blocks for supposed lack of originality, the true testament is nobody has ever even tried....so yes in fact they are NEW possiblilities that have never been practically implemented or explored.
    There is a difference between how you feel and think and the reality, there are some mods who don't pull their weight and probably shouldn't be mods, but at the moment I think that is the least of our problems here.

    Agreed that defining "who is pulling their weight" is a completely subjective perception.....but you minimizing the importance of having the PROPER people in a moderator position is absurd. Mods are supposed to be the leaders/examples/standard bearers/ better posters of the bunch. If you have a bunch of lazy, apathetic, know-nothing, game players as the root "core" of your staff...that IS the type membership and website you will build. Cmon man, you MUST have enough life skills to understand quality people hang out with quality people....and pieces of shit hang out with pieces of shit. Why wouldn't that dynamic hold true even in some made up cyber world?
    We try not to do permabans here, as you can see making them their own special group was effective. look BHD, fatty and the like haven't been around.

    Those particular posters havent' posted significantly for all of what...2, maybe 3 days? And you quantify that as "successful"???? Look at the bigger picture and longer term future here Buddha, and quit looking at only 5 minutes ago or 5 minutes into the future. The truth of the matter is their kind of annoying slobber IS what has plagued the quality of this place for over a year, and now you are claiming them being absent (on a weekend especially) for a small block of time as some kind of "victory".

    As has ALREADY been stated...this whole "we don't like to ban" mantra is absurd...and is completely contrary to building a QUALITY userbase. Don't expect to have GREAT discussion, if you won't ever aspire to have at least *GASP* some kind of standard for that discussion, or penalties for those completely unwilling to try to live up to that standard.

    Well you see the last couple points are where we (tdr, you, me and dg) all agree, but the site policies and stuff prevent us from deleteing users posts, and banning people.

    I would kind of hate to see this place run like meta used to run his forums on the original &T. Little too controlling for me.

    Jesus Fuckin Christ...we are aware of the FAILED CURRENT POLICIES...but the whole purpose to this thread is what OTHER PEOPLE WOULD DO IF THEY COULD MAKE POLICY AND PROCEDURE. You can't just brush aside a great idea for different policy, and then explain yourself saying..."that isn't our current policy"...when you yourself asked for different policy ideas. Ok, I guess you CAN try that tactic...but it would make you look like a complete blithering moron like above.

    And NOBODY has ever claimed they wanted Meta's delusional and demented style on these boards. There is NO ONE on any of these Totse clones/offshoots that has more disrespect and disdain for that miserable piece of crap than me. Its funny how you can't go from one extreme to the other...without enjoying the very cozy happy middle. In your mind its either...Slobber Central For Everyone, or just more game players from idiotic morons? No plausible scenario of having QUALIFIED mods to remove the stupidity and maintain a legitimate board?
    Our rules and shit are constantly changing and developing as our needs here change. We are still newish so things aren't perfect.

    Exactly...and because you have the ever changing agendas and idealogy, nobody knows what to expect from anyone. That is why there is constant drama, constant strife, constant butthurt, and constant attempts to rewrite history. Because everyone has their OWN interpretation of how things should be, its just a hodge-podge of bullshit. Seriously Buddha, tell me one project/organization/entity that has any realm of success without at least some kind of well laid out structure and plan....and then everyone focusing towards the same plan. And you can't keep changing plans weekly as the politics (or heat) alters you emotionally.

    InB4 Buddha responds to that with 'but the internet ain't serious bizness'....because from the slobber brigade's viewpoint this should all just be fun, games, whimsy.....and it will all work out in the end.
    I had suggested this months ago,( about the porn) but we have actually got a few good members out of it, and for the most part the rest of them keep to themselves.

    If people want to be fucking idiots and admit to crimes on the internet that is their own damn fault, I don't see how removing that stuff would make the site any better. Just because it goes against your own personal politics?

    Put up or shut up, Buddha....EXACTLY WHICH "good members" have we gotten from the porn forum? That sounds like a very empty fairy tale you just told, to color a pretty picture in exactly the shape you like it. Name names specifically or you are just spewing bullshit

    As for the rest of your commentary about "content" and what people should be able to post (other than if its QUALITY DISCUSSION) I haven't put too much thought into that part of it. Because see MY ideas go further into an ethos/purpose for the website and how people are expected to conduct themselves, morseso than their ideas or what they want to talk about. I won't go into that right now, because again that will be part of MY little manifesto when I find the urge to discuss it with you.....but suffice it to say, I can't say I agree with either you or Spectral in regard to the "nature" of what we should talk about here.

    /Real DaGuru

    HAHAHAHAH Good job Buddha, you sure as hell told Spectral! People have been trying to explain everything you said to him for a couple years now, and despite our responses mostly being just empty rhetoric that nobody has ever even tried with this userbase....you gave him the same pat answers anyone does when pressed, so now if we keep far away from this thread and discussion for a while all of these dicey issues will probably just go away until the next shitstorm, and hopefully nobody will be paying attention to the way we just tap-danced away from a sincere or intelligent conversation regarding the policies and future of this place.

    Have I told you the story about the nigger, the Irishman, and the Catholic that walk into a bar?..........

    What input would that be? Everyone is still waiting with baited breath to see even the outline of your master plan.

    Oh look....another one of the staffers that came to have an "intellectual" conversation about site policies and procedure, and some things that could make it better around here.
    ELL OH FUCKIN ELL @ you asking for ideas, and then pretending like the ideas have never been posted.

    BTW....what ever happened to Buddha? Budddha???? BUDDHAAAAA??!!?!!!?!!!?! :cool:

    I stopped reading this SpecGuru drama many moons ago, I don't even know what it's about any more :facepalm: Don't really care either, as far as I'm concerned Spectral and DaGuru are just another couple of members of this forum which I go on and that's all that matters.

    He not only gave up on his own thread, he spent hours digging around looking at my deleted posts to try and find something else to hook onto. Talk about pathetic.

    All I know is.....they damn well better give me back my deposit at the costume shop. Because when I return my "Be-a-Forum-Admin" outfit back to them, they sure as hell better know
    that foul aroma in the material was there long before I ever put it on. It wasn't the shoes to fill that left such a stench, instead it was having to put on that fake Paki head. :cool:

    I've actually heard good things about the people of Pakistan, but I think we just got a bad apple this time.
