1 Sometimes arguments are good for Forums.. on Fri Jul 02, 2010 12:51 am

I have learned thru the years of running a Forum to rely on my own instincts. Its always worked for me. I have recently not done that. I always knew emotional tension and arguments were good for forum ratings, and to an extent brought people in to read what was going on. People love that stuff. Just look at IYT's boards.

Let me clarify what I'm trying to say. I think I have allowed myself to cut people out that were controversial and perhaps good for the Forum in a general sense. Meaning it brought interest. I always knew people enjoyed reading gossip and stuff, arguments, ect..Me trying to clean it up may have been a wrong decision "Admin" wise for the sake of the forum.

However, I think I have done a good job, I took care of a lot of issues and worked problems out.

I'm going to back down some on what I get mad at and boot someone off this site for. I don't want to become an Admin that only allows nice or people that agree with me, or the majority, to be a person I cast out. In other words and more bluntly, if someone calls me an asshole I want to post a video in the vault instead of banning them.

I'm not going to protect anyone anymore from people that come on here and possibly offend someone.

This has taken alot of thought to come to this decision, but we have to open up the gates all the way now to bring this forum back to full speed. I don't like the way things are now. I beat the enemy but lost the war, it damaged my forum. I'm looking to rebuild this forum and I need your help. Tell all your friends to join here.

i think but not sure i posted long ago, that if everyone agreed that it would be a boring sight. different views make things lively. and its good to hear the other side and opinions . all i would like to say is post different counter to a post, and not attack the person but the post, but there is a fine line there to what that is, well i need to get going, im late take care

I agree Rosco, I love a good debate, debate the subject, not the personal attacks ,and name calling. a lot of people I have asked to come to the forum, a lot of people don't like to come to forum's. but I ill invite all I play with at iyt, and even some of the family..then it is their choice..
