Formal Complaint

Posted 01 December 2001 - 07:31 PM

I would like to file a formal complaint.
Two of my threads were closed in the Caffeine Lounge because they were "Inapproiate."  I don't understand. I was under the impression that anything could be posted in the Caffeine Lounge.  

Quote

It will basically state that anything which is not suitable for the other forums must be in the caffeine lounge and that the rules of the lounge are anything goes as long as it does not offend someone directly.

The goal of it is to allow whatever we want in here, I wanna be able to have fun in the lounge,
-Chirs Kentworthy

Neither of my threads "offend[ed] any one directly" so what was inapproiate about them?  I demand that either the threads be re-opened and all future threads of the same measure be protected from being closed OR I see a change in the terms of service stating the specifics of what is and is not approiate.

Sincerly,


Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Reason was, as the terms stand right now, it violated them :) or that's what slothage would say... heheh

We got kiddies on the site, a little sex talk here and there is fine... sex aint illegal... but the mary j. talk it is a bit to far on the grounds that a good 50% of our members aren't of legal age yet. So I'ma change the terms in a day or 2 and make it nice and clear.

I should have just posted saying, drugs are bad kids, this is what ends up happening to you when you smoke pot.

Your not of legal age yet you talk of being drunk. How is that any different. Oh, and, you are allowed by law to talk about drugs for educational purposes.   I never said that anyone should do drugs, where to buy them, how to get them or how to take them.  (Although most of those are totally legal as well).  If you think anything I did was illegal, feel free to point your browser over to http://www.blueligh.nu, they push the envelope.  
I would also like to point out that there is no legal age for marijuana.

Do I actually talk about being drunk here? Or do I just post while I'm drunk?

There's no need to take it to that level.

well... looks like there's more than one of us out there who's pissed about thread closers.  well, here's how i see it.  you're both right.  illegal activities... drugs... piracy... ect. shouldn't be posted about.  drinking, though it IS a legal activity to some of us shouldn't be glorified on anyone's site where the majority of members are minors...  there should be some statement in the terms that states that the topics discussed in the CL are not necessarily the feelings, ideas, or whatever of the the design group behind dreamincode.  with that said the CL should be free of moderation except the moving of threads or the closing of "illegal" threads.  the other lounges are set up and specific to the topics they deal with.  if you're worried about people or kids viewing inappropriate topics in the CL then maybe you should move it off the top of the forum list... perhaps bury it at the bottom where the mod lounge is... though, i think a little disclaimer is good if you're going to revamp the terms... then people who don't want to read don't have to... the people who do read well... that's their problem.  ya know?  freedom of speech and all that jazz...

I was thinking bout moving the CL down a bit... I think that's a great idea... as well as a warning in the description.

Ok this is now my official statement and since I don't have my computer (which, Will, I'd like to pick up tomorrow at about Noon) with me, I'll not have the new TOC up till tomorrow, but the new changes will go into effect immediatley.

The caffine lounge is an ANYTHING goes as long as it's legal (no swapping Serial numbers, sharing software, talking about how, where, what drugs... suggestive language is fine, sex, drugs, alcohol are all good in there... we've gotten to a point where we have enough going on in other forums and we will have more if I move the CP down..

Enjoy, I'll unlock the threads I locked.
