Uhhhh...
Yeah, that's not saying anyone left this week, merely that we've had PMs from people being alienated and considering leaving this week, the comment that we've had people leaving is more applicable to the past couple of months.

Some of the members that agree with me have been on forums like ONM for years, they have grown up on this site and you just say "oh up sticks and go away if you have an issue". It's not fair, it's not right at all. How about you grow a pair of balls and look at this diplomatically you gooseberry fool pussy liverpool tart.
Yeah, we're picking a side, the side that agrees with the intent of the forums and the rules. It doesn't matter how long you've been here, that doesn't give you more rights to decide on this kind of matter. We take account of these opinions but when eton mess's going too far it's going too far. Simple as that, you can throw your toys out of the pram and complain or you can get on with it, is it that difficult to keep eton mess jokes and spam to chats? Do you really need to bring it here? You might get a kick out of it but others aren't so if you can't make that concession then tough luck quite simply.

Jenova has already summed it up pretty well. There are differing groups of people who want differing things from the forum, and ideally everyone could be kept happy. As it is, and as evidenced by people saying so both here in this thread, elsewhere on the forum and through private complaints, many people are not happy with the amount of spam and in-jokes on the boards and feel both excluded and driven away by that content. As a moderating team we agree with that and want to retain those members of the userbase, as well as having SONM be an environment that is open enough to gain and retain new members. Excessive spam and overly aggressive posting towards others is not conducive to an open, friendly and healthy community, and is disliked by the majority.

If you are not happy with the way the forum is moderated then you are entirely free to go elsewhere or create whatever community of your own choosing yourself. We do listen to what people want and that is what has led us to moderate the forum as we currently do.

I've moved this thread over to FF&T as it seems the most relevant place.

It's come to my attention that there are too many people on this forum who don't like injokes because it makes them feel excluded, yet they all sit back and want the groups to extend themselves out for the individuals.

Sometimes the world feels like it's progressing and then sometimes I remember there are people like that

Thank you for your time gentlemen

this thread just reeks of people who are overly desperate to spread their eton mess humour to as many people as possible, to the point they are outraged about having their humour invalidated by being deleted/locked/whatever

Yep, this is all I care about, please stop telling everyone I voted for the Tories, which I did do, last year, I went to the ballot papers and voted for them. Do not state this fact.

if only we all shared regg's acerbic wit

maybe then we'd all tell HILARIOUS wisecracks, causing the entire forum to erupt into hysterical laughter, such as "we should cull fat people and convert them into meat" and "[insert anti-semitic joke here]"

I have noticed a decline in others posting as of late (What happened to ChaosControl?), as well as the memes, but tbh this place is still a lot like ONM, just a little... wilder? I guess that's the word to explain it. And to be honest, I've only really seen the memes and nonsense happening in OT, I haven't seen it in any other part of here, unless I'm missing something here...

I think CC took the whole,
"G hacked me to call himself a knickerbocker glory"
"No he didn't"
scenario pretty badly.

Also afaik you're not wrong about that it's only OT that's had the problem and quite frankly that's OT on every forum.

How do you get off topic from off topic anyway surely that doesn't involve eton mess that involves making a legitimate point

off topic content is fine for off topic but only when it's on topic enough for off topic

It's like people don't realise OT is basically for detritus; if people want to talk about new super mario bros 6 or smash etc w/e do it in the perfectly legit and fine subforums which should be modded

side note: mod me so i can mod sport
