NOTICE* i don't want this topic to be a reason for people to bring any past conflict or disagreement from another topic, carried on over into this one. this is strictly a suggestion. lets keep it about that suggestion.

moving onto the topic..

i think randall needs to take most notice of this but i think everyone deserves to have their opinion on the suggestion. it may be a bad idea, or a good one.

i have been watching all these issues build up since a particular incident blew off. it is draining to witness and be aware of, i should really avoid the forums till it blows over to not let it be draining to read but, being human i can't help but read atleast some of it. besides, its not fair i can't visit a forum because of everyone else.

anyway,

in my opinion, and observation, yes there is issues on both sides, with the members here and How they are being, and HOW all of this is being managed.

ballance is needed.

my suggestion is taht a new forum, with a password, is opened temporarily when all is said and done, it can be deleted and forgotten, and only reopened if something that stirs up another "uproaring" this way, happens again.

my reasons for this is because, members are expressing this need to be "heard", and be free to state their opinion. randall has clarified (and it should be obvious) that his is allowed, what no moderator or admin wants its a topic that boils down to just fighting, insults, slander.

what the members want is to be able to voice their opinions without getting their topics locked. clearly it would seem reasonable that members should just voice it directly to randall, but its also very clear that this for them is not a complaint to be made but somethign they as a group, want to discuss. consensus wants to be found openly with everyone it seems.

i agree with Both sides of this, i do think members need to be heard and discussions need to be carried out, but i also agree that this shouldnt be flooding lindaland central, or any forum here infront of new members. this forum isnt about or for drama is it?.

i think a new forum should be opened up temporarily to handle this issue, but be passworded. and the password should be given out to those who request it directly from randall by email.

so that there is no chance "nwe members" have to put up with this or see it in forums that it really doesnt belong.

the only issue with this, is that IF members here wont follow this (if the idea was to be implemented), it would in my very own eyes, completely prove what randall feels (and i for the most part agree with) that members need to be known, say their goodbye's, be heard, and sometimes just leave with Drama. Drama!.

if this ide was implemented, i'd see no issue why all members who feel they need to carry this issue out in discussion can't commit their opinions and problems with it there.

it might be considerable to think about having a forum where suggestions about the website its self, and anything else, can be opened. unless one is already here (i havent noticed it).


what do you think of this?

i just want to say that i encourage people to think about how they express their need to be heard. that insults, slander, are unnecessary, we need more self control. our emotions cloud our judgement. frustrations..

i don't think the banning approach is very unjustified at all, but i do think the point of being a knowflake, and being banned forever (point A to B) is a little too direct. i encourage "time outs" temporary bans, 3 chances, like the 3 strikes law. each time is a longer sentence..

would this approach seem more righteous to you knowflakes?

Sounds reasonable enough. Implementation may not be so easy.
