There are a few threads taken out, snatched, kidnapped.

Why?

If we wish to share something amongst us, why is it taken???

Those guys are a bunch of nutcases. They take every post and twist it into some mindless...

Um, never mind.

All you threads are belong to us

Where might we members find these hometown rules?

I was wondering how the 10th planet thread starting having post from other states. I thought the damn Active Topics got turned on again. Then I noticed it said "General Discussion" and I was like, WTF? I know this wasn't in GD before?!

So it sounds like the HTFs will become ghost towns for the most part. The majority of the stuff discussed here is not necessarily 100% related to the state itself. Right now, 11 of the 25 links on the first page could easily be considered GD and not HTF. Sure, they deal with someone from WA, but they could be anything.

It seems the HTFs have suffered from their success. I scan the GD, but I give up after the 2nd page. There is just too much crap happening to fast in there. No way to keep up. Some of the topics I like, but mostly I'd rather hang out in here and talk to you jokers! Even if it is the same stuff being discussed in GD.

Here is another observation. How about all the firearms related questions in GD? Shouldn't they also be kicked around to their proper forums? Shouldn't all the "9mm vs 45 ACP" be moved to the ammo discussion under the Handguns forum? Shouldn't all the Q's about AKs be moved to the AK forums?

Look closer, that is being done.

It works for me.


Now had astronomers in WA, say over at WSU been out in the corn field one night drinking 30 packs of Rainer looked up and found that planet then it would have been a WA topic. Right?

Hmmmmmm. Lt Calley? Is that you?!?!??!?

C'Mon man.....if it's started by a WA team member, in the WA forum....doesn't that imply the poster wants to obtain a REGIONAL point of view??????


Huh? How's that for shithouse lawyerin'?

I agree. If I post something in GD it's because I want it there. Generally any technical questions go in the tech forums but sometimes I want a LOCAL opinion for a reason and I'll post it in HTF. There shouldn't be anything wrong with that.

Next thing you know we'll have to take everything to chat

A little organization never hurt anybody.

There are things I want to share with the locals, because I know them, and I know their interests. I want them to see it, as opposed to throwing out into GD and hoping they catch it.

As a suggestion, it doesn't seem unreasonable to post it in GD or the appropriate tech forum and drop a note in the HTF to bring it to Team WA's attention. If that's not OK, I'll learn to live with it.

I've seen people post in GD and get flamed for a thread that the general population doesn't understand or doesn't care about. I know some members just don't read GD.

Then there are Olympic Arms threads. Guaranteed to bring massive flames when posted in any forum except maybe WA, where it only brings large flames, LOL.
Link Posted: 8/1/2005 10:08:21 AM EDT
I mostly stay out of GD because there is too much BS to try to weed out. I much rather see what the locals are up to. If someone wants to talk/share about something from their personal life here in WA then I don't think it would be cool to move it to GD. Even though it could have been posted in GD. My $0.02.....

I leave that discretion up to your mod.If it is something serious like divorce,illness,etc and you want to keep it out of GD,I am sure JAFO will leave it here.
The name of a 10th planet I do not think would qualify though

And yes,by all means,leave the Olympic threads here as much as possible.Disguise the thread as "Who wants to take a tour of OA?",or something similar if you have to,but try to keep it out of the flammable fora.

If someone mentiones their state in a GD post, does it get the boot to the appropriate HTF?

[Arsineo Hall] something that makes you go, hhhmmmmmm. [/Arsineo Hall]

Perhaps a NERD forum?

Too much moderation is a bad thing too.

I enjoy posting in the hometown forum because I've shared beers and lunch with many of the guys here at LCR and GF shoots. I enjoy their company, opinions and discussions. For me..it allows me to add some context because I know what some of them would say in real life. Some of us are meeting a few times a month to shoot, shoot the shit, etc.

All I ask is that this forum NOT be castrated because of moderator power tripping.

It's not kidnapping, it's sending them to concentration camp. Like it, you will !

JAFO is good people. He's the kind of guy who goes to bat for his friends.

All the WA people I have met are first rate in my book. I've seen just about everybody get raked over the coals either in the HTF or at the events, or both. Getting into each others shit is part of the fun, but a rather annoying part of it, at times. I know some people don't like each other as well as they might, but this ain't anyplace to have a thin skin.

In my case, I've tried to let everybody know I have PTSD and I know I get intense sometimes. I hope that everyone can bear with me, but I understand it when they want to take a break from me. I'm just another person, no better, and sometimes a little worse than most.

There is one moderator who knows how to deal with people. When I drop into his forum and create a disturbance, he edits my posts. The last one he changed to "IM me for Hot Gay Sex". That's cheating, but he knows how to win an argument. LMAO!

Good luck moderating the forum, JAFO...better you than me!
