So may I ask

What closing the GDT is going to solve?

For now, everyone will cool off and step away. As Burn said we will open it again, eventually.

It was a luxury abused. Whats it going to solve? The ability to post in it quickly and make it harder to catch you in the act.

I went ahead and moved you to the correct place.

That was my bad actually. Its easier to deal with things in here where i dont have to dig through the responses to find a legit question.

Quote:
Let's be real. Everyone who posts in there has been posting on PBN for years now. If we wanted to post quickly and efficiently, we would do so in other ways on this site.

Be specific, what was abused to justify taking GDT away? How come it's okay for us to talk about other forums on this website, but not the one many of us just went to?

I have always appreciated the vague responses I get from you guys.
I need not be overly specific, they were never allowed to start with. It was a trial run that has proven itself again to be too much of a hassle.
Refer to rules:
http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=3491365

Why the problem with that forum? Its strict purpose is to move content from here to there. If you want to leave than go, I dont have to tolerate you spamming your forum across mine though.

Understood on the move and the delete.

I don't want to leave. I am posting in both forums and it saddens me to see ST in the state it currently is in.

I would also bargain to say a thread that has been alive as long as GDT has is NOT was not in a trial state anymore. To leave it as such sounds like the only reason you had it out was to remove it for control reasons. A trial state would have been to say it was left alive for a few weeks to guage interested and behavior then the state reevaluated. It was left up for years. This is curious to me.

Nonetheless, you have not proven what went wrong in GDT to justify pulling it.

If that GDT is being pulled, why are all the others still alive?

For some reason it seems like we only see issues in the ST GDT, all the others seems to be fine.

To an extent it is control. You get used to the idea that people will try and hide images wherever they can in an attempt to see how long they can get them to stay up. Its easier to stop the ability to spam things in places that are time consuming to find before they happen.

You learn to expect temper tantrums when children when they dont get their way. They already proved they cant stay away, no sense in making it any easier.

Real talk, you only see issues in STGDT? I find that hard to believe, but I will take your word for it.

Maybe I'm misreading, but how does closing the GDT help with people posting things in a place they won't get found? There is plenty of porn on this forum hidden in subforums that don't ever get checked. This is no secret, as you probably well know more than I. GDT wasn't a place for that. GDT was a place for us to shoot the **** and chill out after work, the heart and soul of ST.

Maybe I just don't understand why it seems you guys are trying to drive away the most active part of this forum. Maybe you're not. But it sure seems like it.

I do quite appreciate the mature responses, by the way.

Basically what im getting at is this:

I expect that there will be a spamming of porn and other things in ST to prove how awesome they are. Im sure it will be something clever like pasting my face on gay porn or some other weird fetish porn. The real problem is this. If they make a bunch of threads, its really easy to get rid of, takes 2 seconds of my time and they are gone. If there is a GDT and people posting, things get buried in pages and take more of my time to delete. Its really just an ease of moderating thing. It really only maybe takes a few more seconds but it is slightly more annoying.

As far as spamming obscure forums that people think are empty because no one is posting. You would be really surprised most of the time how easily those are found because people are actually just watching and waiting on others to post.

Im not trying to kill anything.

Come on, you don't want your face on gay porn? I may not understand, but I would imagine your argument, that is of finding broken rules in active threads, would hold more merit a few years ago when ST was bustling. Not now, when GDT has posts from weeks ago.

With the obscure forums, I just know a few PMs have gone around about where some is hidden. I just meant you and I both know that's not new.

I don't disagree with you entirely. I just, it's hard to not think this isn't being done as a killing blow to ST.

Thats what everyone has thought over the years.

Everytime this happens, people leave saying they are never coming back. Most of the time its the big time trolls that lead the way. Once everyone realizes that the trolls are, well, power hungry trolls and not as big of dictators as everyone makes us out to be, most everyone comes back.

Luckily by that time the power hungry trolls have been exposed as frauds, and tend not to come back. ST comes back, and we restart this cycle

I dunno. As I've said, I have no plans of leaving. I just feel GDT being closed was, well, it was a pretty rough move on yalls part.. in my opinion. I still don't understand why it was done and feel you may be hiding something, but at least you're not being a dick in your replies. For this, I thank you. It's obvious if there is more of an underlying cause I will not learn it through you.

Thanks for the conversation Burn. May I actually meet you sometime, seeing as we don't live too far apart sometimes.
