      We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.

Membership overrun with SJW’s.

I went away for awhile and came back to find the site practically overrun with overly sensitive SJW’s that mimick the behavior of many of the snowflakes. This saddens me. I really hope, especially with new mod applications being open, that this can be better remedied. As a former mod I know all too well how reliant on reports admins are, but if there are like-minded people willing to do so, having dedicated thread mods who explore the threads frequently and can spot these people would help immensely. I know that besides a general mod, I was unofficially the dedicated mod for the Venus thread and we saw it was well regulated while I was here. If that could be a thing for at least the more major snowflakes, I think it would help a lot. And having more manpower I think would alleviate a lot of the pressure for mods as a whole. Again, being on the other side I recognize that’s a lot of work and maybe even some restructuring, but with great effort comes great rewards. Just sad to see what was a perfectly decent forum having its reputation ruined (well, moreso) from the influx of shitty members when I know the admins are actually good, level-headed people.

I do think Biscuit makes a good point, although I don't really agree on their choice of words. As a former admin, shouldn't you be knowing better?

"let's call people names and talk to them in a condescending way and wonder why I'm being downvoted".

Get over yourself.

 

Lol what? I don’t wonder why I’m being downvoted. I literally couldn’t care less about votes. But thanks for projecting, assuming, and proving my point :).

Knowing better than what, exactly? Not all forums are created equal and therefore not all forums are moderated in the same way. As someone who has been here for several iterations of the website and back when John Doe was still an admin, this place was moderated with a MUCH heavier hand than I used to moderate. The language in which I use was common. 

This site was always a place to come be blunt with opinions. People who proved to be thin skinned and overly sensitive and SJW (like the term or not, that is the language that has always been used here) were banned back in the day. The site has laxed in many ways but this place was never a super “friendly” place. I mean, hello, the people in the topics are called snowflakes. This has never been a PC place and to see it becoming as such is disheartening. I know Nyx never wanted this place to be PC so I don’t know what went awry. That’s all I’m saying.

That's a pretty high horse there, buddy.

I do agree to an extent- yeah, there's some sensitive people here, especially considering that it's a gossip site.

You know not trying to be an asshole but you guys are being sensitive mentioning the sensitive people. I mean just ignore them. It's what I do. I don't think calling them names and calling them out is going to do anything. If you don't like something either report the post or just ignore it. Not that hard.

Oh, I see! I do agree with your point that most people are overly sensitive; but using condescending terms to describe them wasn't so nice. That's was just my point. And yes, this is a gossip site, not a place to fight for social justice every time someone's feelings got hurt.

I was just against you calling them names. 

Also, lol, you just proved your point. Ya got me there boi

Yeah, best thing would likely just be to ignore them- unless I'm missing something, it's not like they can be banned just for having sjw opinions.

Rainbow_Girl kind of holds that SJW mindset though but I get the feeling that she might be a preteen or a teenager and has that rebellious attitude that she’ll grow out of.

ok, but what does SJW stand for? Snowflake Junior Warrior? Sad Joe Weeb? :ph34r:

I really don't know what the acronym means. :alpacacrush:
