    • Be a moderator! & Reports Announcement   03/07/19

      We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed.  There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.

    I agree with you personally down to the exact point that not using Rin's preferred pronouns helps to fuel the self-victimization, but it just comes down to personal choice. We're not a hivemind.

    I agree with this and think you put it well. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, even if other users may find that opinion immoral. Arguing about it just derails the thread.

    There's definitely been a massive change in forum culture, speaking as someone who lurked from the beginning. Nyx and I have discussed this with each other too. This site is neither a call-out blog where each thread subject must be held to PC standards to get a passing grade, nor a place for fangirling and whiteknighting. Another issue is that serious topics are often cast aside in favor of nitpicking very personal and subjective points. We're not quite sure how to tackle this issue considering the vast amount of users who are pushing this atmosphere, but we're aware of it and are trying to work it out.
    Of course that doesn't mean going full "hate site", but PULL is a gossip community first and foremost. That will always hurt some feelings.
     
    Lately we've had requests to censor specific a specific thread to bury a flake's own bad decision with loud calls to "listen to what the users want" - infighting, downvotes, endless discussions about being more understanding because the flake graced us with her presence and tugged at some heartstrings - up until the mood shifted again days later and now things are okay all of a sudden. If we listened to every outcry like this, the site might as well be shut down. This really stayed on my mind because it was such a big push for us to change the nature of the forum for this one person, it made me wonder why such people even sign up on PULL. I think there's a large disconnect between what newer users want PULL to be and what it was intended to be. 
    A lot of it is just that the site has grown so, so much bigger with an influx of people from specific circles, who personally participate in the same subcultures they criticize and as such take many things very personally and very to heart, as if they're the ones being criticized.

    Eh, I'm not impressed with the new video.
    timing - Rin had to get dropped by multiple companies to make this video?platitudes and obvious-isms - "never side with the rapist" lmao thanks for that pearl of wisdom?asserting themselves as someone trustworthy when they did nothing to establish themselves as such, outside of RTing woke tweets - "I'm an ally, you can come to me with this, this is so important" repeating it over and over won't change how people see you now.omitting important topics - what about Daniel? what about your lies? the salty tweets?that rambling bit where Rin apologizes to the victim directly right after saying she didn't want to talk to Rin at all... so it's clearly performative then if the victim doesn't want to be in contact and likely won't watch the video either.

    Manager's husband allegedly got someone fired (or tried to) for criticizing Rin.

    That colorpop ad looks so bad. I'd be embarrassed.

    In the future please use the report feature for this, but I banned both; we don't tolerate downvote manipulation at all.

    Hi Buzzfeed!
    Maybe you meant "series"?
     
    Is it me or are the photos in the article chosen to shade Rin?


    I'm cackling.
    Our thread was directly linked too in this paragraph:
    ...so, hello to potential lurkers and newcomers.

    Shart, really...?
    ...well, at least it's an honest description. It's what you get when following Rin - hot air and more shit than you signed up for. An unexpected little turd and weird sounds that make you cringe.
    The comments on Twitter are still overwhelmingly negative, I don't think Rin's coming back from this anytime soon and right now it's just getting worse with all the rug sweeping.

  11. Rhea added a post in a topic Simply_Kenna/cozykitsune [Thread 5]   

    You're right, I went back and looked again and unhid both your and honeycrisp's comment. It was right at the tail end of the Mikan discussion and I thought I was just cleaning up, but you're right in that it's not consistent if other similar comments aren't being hidden as well.
    So to clarify, yes, please instead of posting in the thread (especially comments that are styled with large font, bold text, capslock etc that take up half the page) just report the offending posts. I know we're still not very speedy right now, but more mods will be added and contributing to the derailing by arguing about what goes where is not very helpful either. 
    And for everyone else, if a post is not informative (as in updates, context, clarifications, etc) then think about putting it into the nitpick thread.
    What definitely belongs in the nitpick thread are purely superficial comments and opinions like "This is an ugly outfit", "I hate her eyebrows", "she would look so much better if..."
    I know it can be hard to decide what goes where because there's not really a very distinctive line between commentary and nitpicking, so we're not moderating very strictly, and the occasional comment won't be punished at all - it becomes a problem when it derails the entire thread and makes it hard to follow the actual drama around Kenna because it gets drowned in commentary.
    I'm going to remind Nyx that we should work out a concise structure for this forum so that every kind of comment has its place and users can post to their hearts' content while keeping things organized. Please stay tuned.

    I hid a chain of comments that were focused mostly on comparing Mikan to Kenna, which is why they don't belong in this thread. The comments you're asking about were hidden because they were part of this off-topic conversation, not because they told users where to go.

    That's weird. Maybe then the site was paid for by one of her friends or relatives and they're keeping it going as a memorial or just because they didn't realize it was still being charged - it would be maybe 10 dollars per year at most.

    Wow, damn. She's still the same after so many years, still not moving on from her weeby fantasies, just dialed them up to 11 after moving back... is it desperation because she's aging out of that bracket where it's generally accepted to be like this and it's like a "Now or never" kind of thing?

    Just to clear this up: Before we made the announcement about using reports more, we got maybe 5 reports a week. Compare that the the amount of constant infighting, arguments, disagreements, off-topic posting, etc. and you'll see that it's not nearly enough to help us stay up to date on current issues unless we read every single post in the forum. We need the reports as a way for users to reach us quickly and effectively rather than battling things out in the thread. However, as I said before, it's still up to us to make the actual decision.
