What would the pros and cons be to turning the OT into a NSFW sub-forum and making it invisible to non-members/password-protected? I'm personally pretty conflicted on the idea, but I was wondering what others thought.

it sounds vile and disgusting and i am horrified that you think we should hide who we really are to outsiders just to show a more presentable view of the club. absolutely sickening




that being said, i'm in

A few quick thoughts:

- It would be better to have a space for content that can be seen as objectionable. I can recall in the past posting something and worrying about how so-and-so would interpret it. Having a space that filters that might be best.

- It'd also make policing the main forum much easier, as anything that shouldn't be posted here can just be redirected.

- And, of course, it'd make the forum look better.

- That said, I worry that it creates a division between members. There would still have to be rules on the sub, and one good one would be to leave any particular team member out of the discussion (that should be reserved for private FB chats). A total free-for-all will do more harm than good, in my opinion.

Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but I have no idea what you mean by this.

First mistake was publicly broadcasting this on the forum. Let's discuss this on the "other" forum.

So many different modes of communication to choose from!


Sidenote, let me know what you guys think about coming to trivia tonight at Ironhawk through smoke signals. My carrier pigeons got lost on the way, I apologize.

Sorry--should have been clearer. Just that it might make it harder for new members if they feel like there's a group-within-the-group, if that makes any sense.

See, I feel like that perceived "group within the group" IS the group. Just think about who's on the forums. Aside from a few troll accounts (RIP in peace), it's everyone who's serious about their training. This isn't bashing anyone who ISNT on the forums by any means, maybe they have a different way to log and track progress that works better for them. More power to them for doing whatever they want to do. I just feel like it'd be putting a mask on the club, which I necessarily don't want to do.

Well, all it takes is making the OT subforum the dedicated area for that kind of stuff, and making sure people realize that's what it's there for. I made the OT visible to members-only so we can experiment with this. All people have to do is have an account to see the OT subforum--if that is somehow exclusionary (accounts are free and require 3 minutes to create), then I don't know what to say. Let's try this out.
