What Would It Take?

What would it take to bring more people up here to the forums? Is there a way to return it them to that fine balance between serious and fun that it had not so long ago? Would an attempt to slow the constant nonesense down, and return to the unwritten rule of letting a thread especially a new thread, by a new member die, before highjacking it to hell, be seen as an insult to those who spend so much of their time here?

And would it be to much to ask that we at least try to answer questions before the thread deteriorates into off topic tom-foolery?

These are the questions I'd love answered!

Well, I'm not sure what to do, hon. But I agree that the forums haven't been a fun place to hang out for a while now At least, it's not my kind of fun - don't mean to imply that those here aren't fun people :)

How about a boobie-rub off again? Maybe a cock-sucking tournament? Learn to line dance? I don't know I'm grasping at thin air here!

I've tried reviving some of the old topics...but they always get pushed down by the same people...just like this one is! It's almost as though they look at it...don't see the 'nonsense' but something serious...and they go jump a bunch of other threads to knock it down. I'm not pointing fingers at anyone or making direct accusations, just saying that's how it looks. Like I said on a blog comment...if the site had been like this when I first started, I probably wouldn't have stayed as long as I have. But I got into the forums right when I joined...for the serious discussions and the fun ones.

I'll admit that I'm guilty as hell for being involved in the crazy thread jacking tom foolery thats happening around here......but I always make sure to try to answer the original thread topic first....and I try not to initiate the "jacking" in a thread.....

I don't know how we can bring people back to posting in the more serious threads....personally if I could find more threads with serious topics I would gladly post in them....I don't always have time to look for threads like these though, because like you say, they are always burried under 50 so called "more popular" threads.....and once you read and answer your e-mails, and catch up with some of the other poeple you've been corresponding with in the other forums....you don't always have time to look for a new thread to post to....and if your not here watching every few hours then you miss them....

I've been here a month, and when I started, I originally came just for a fun release, not knowing what to expect, and not really expecting to find good hearted, "real" people here....it's only been recently that I've really been looking for something with more substance to post in.....not that I would have avioded it before, I just simply didn't notice any....

I think what you are doing here is a very good thing, trying to bring things back into balance.....I for one support you whole heartedly....and I'll try to find more threads like these to participate in!

They need to unlock the rooms we had going. I would get up in the mornings and start reading and there were times I would be laughing my ass off.

I love the forum's and was posting a lot before a lot of the rooms got locked down.

I hold myself guilty as hell for joining in the threadjacking, but after reading this one and having a look with the eyes of an outsider just coming in or someone who wants to post and/or learn about any given topic...well, honestly and bluntly, it looks to me that they couldnt follow the discussion replies very well, having to filter through the hijacking parts. I am not going to do that myself anymore. there are plenty of "just play and be silly" topics to do that in. No reason to jack them all.

Just the way I see it from your questions, Canu. And like others, I dont mean to accuse, point fingers or hurt anyones feelings, I like I said, I have done it many times myself.

And a point it also makes me think of....about blogs. A great many are composed of jokes, stated questions for others to discuss, and erotic stories...which I happen to see they put as headers in this forum....*Wink* Perhaps a better place for those kinds? Thereby also generating more activity in here

ynot...there's no reason to get 'terretorial'. It's all just fun and games...but when one person comes in and see's people playing, tries to join in and gets snubbed or worse...why would they want to come back? I'm not saying that's what you do, I'm just saying it does happen...and both guys and girls are guilty of it.

I think some of us got a little disgruntled when they locked up our rooms, the bastards!!, and we couldn't play in them anymore. Personally since going back to work I just don't spend as much time on the computer when I am at home now. I stare at one for 8 hours a day.

I try to give everyone a chance....and I really almost never find the need to become nasty....if things do progress that far....I'll do it behind closed doors....but I'll admit there are a couple of people on this site that I'm ignoring.....and that is not because I automatically just decided to be a bitch...it's because not everything that happens is visible in the forums and blogs....and sometimes, certain people don't seem to understand that a polite "not interested" e-mail should be taken just as seriously as a "screw off " e-mail .....so instead of lashing out at them I ignore them....and I move on with my business, and allow them to do the same....but that is only after I've made my points with them, and listened to theirs....

well FUCK...i THOUGHT that's what i was here to do.........now i'm not
I don't think anyone here is asking you to stop doing what you do best, and what we all know, and love you for Ynot......just that topic diversity is a good thing.....and a thread deserves a chance to "play out" a bit before the "jacking" gets too out of hand....I mean I'm still all for the more serious stuff coming back.....but I'm not going to stop my fucking around either.....can't we have both?

another point I wanted to make is this....having only been "active" here for a month or so, (as I've previously stated) I have no clue as to what the forums were like before....so please forgive me for my ignorance on that.....
I guess I'm mostly directing this next question to Sunny and canu (sorry, not trying to pick on you)....but it relates to you guys for sure....and perhaps for some others as well....
have the forums really changed THAT much.....or is it that your expectations from them have changed....I mean, you both originally came here for your own reasons....as (I'm assuming) single people looking to have some fun....flirt with people....and see what comes out of it correct?.....but now that you've found each other (which is wonderful), and are making a life together....it is only natural that out of love, and respect, for one another, you would be avoiding flirting with others and involving yourselves with much of the tom-foolery, that has always, to some extent, existed here....

I repeat that I don't know what happened here before.....but I have heard, that for whatever reason, the AMD authorities chose to "lock down" many threads in the past.....I haven't noticed that going on recently....so perhaps, whatever was going on before....as fun, and exciting as it all was to you....is not what the authorities had in mind for this site ....
I'm just trying to come up with reasons why it's changed so much here, and look at it from different perspectives....I don't claim to know anything.

but can things really ever be the same as how you all remember it?......I don't believe it can ever be the same again, because their are new people, and because the old "core" group of people have changed the way they post......they are not here as often, because real life has absorbed more of their time...and/or their lives have changed to a point that when they are here, they are looking for something different than what they were looking for when they posted here before......

the only thing that stays the same is change....we can't stop it....we just have to accept it and continue on.....



and hello to those people that I haven't had the pleasure to meet yet.

I don't really participate in the forums because it's like everyone is saying the same thing. I'm stimulated by original thought, and it gets harder and harder to come by. Plus, threads that did seem interesting to me always end up getting hijacked by one guy and one girl that cyber post after post after post until the original thread becomes some insubstantial mess, where the point was lost pages before.

agreed and totally guilty.......sorry, we're all just trying to have a little fun here....but anybody, at anytime, can bring any post, back to it's original topic.....and please do so.....I know we get out of hand....but please don't let that stop anybody from posting their opinions....
