To be taken into consideration
alright seriously... mods i really ask you to reconsider, we had built a community there and lots of people honestly were just coming back for spamgrounds. it's unfair to punish us because SoF was racist, you'll notice nobody approved his racism and lots of people actually criticized him for it and told him to stop, (myself, parrot, kneecap, mojo etc.)
as for making sure the spam doesn't spread... that's something we will work on, just issue someone like an instant ban for a day or so if they post some spam-like material outside of the spamgrounds.
honestly spamgrounds was one of my favorite things about this forum..and if you get rid of spamgrounds, then what is gonna happen? people are just going to put their more "unintelligent" or not really important posts in general discussion, and then when those people start getting banned and stuff, the entire forums will just be a vapid, empty lifeless forum.
because that's one of the things that makes this forum so interesting is the amusing, unimportant and nonrelevant things we have to say, that's where the conversation starts. there NEEDS to be a place for flamewars (where everyone is mostly just joking around anyways). there needs to be a place where we can enjoy a lax setting.
and if no new people could look at the spamgrounds, and people were EXPLICITLY warned before entering spamgrounds... what's the problem? as long as we make sure it doesn't leak, (Which we will... i promise that if you could make me a Mod of JUST spamgrounds or maybe red crayon or another elder, we will act responsibly and keep it in one place)
i don't know, i was pretty dissapointed to see it gone, it really is where some of the best/funniest conversations have ever taken place on these boards. i'm sad to see it gone. Mods please consider my post, as i have been a member of the PVK community for 7 years or so, and i really would like to see at least like a second chance delivered.
i don't understand... were people complaining about spamgrounds or something? because if people don't like it.. why don't they just not "enter" it... don't read the posts and don't comment on them? like i said... the only real problem i could see is it leaking, but if given a second chance we will ensure this never happens again.
