Monitoring the forums

carusmm Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Some threads are being locked out of the forums unnecessarily. I am not talking about my own threads that have been locked out, generally I deserve all I get in the way of bad treatment. But, for example, a person asked quite innocently how she could become a better poet in the literature forum and this was interpretted as an OP request. It seems hardly rational and isn't. Also, threads that encourage a wider creativity or effort are honestly discouraged as too tiring for the average punter. I delight in these forums but honestly sometimes I wonder what justice is.

Technically if they'd suffered a stroke, it's doubtful they would finish the word at all. But I see your point.

I'm not even sure what a hipster is. It meant something else when I was a kid. But I don't think I'm aspiring to be one.

Creativity is not encouraged in the literature forum, it is the reason that I have acted so hastily to condemn myself by my action.

I can understand what they confused it for, but god damn I never saw that coming. And to go this far with it is just the poorest of choices.

Still, made for a good laugh to start my day.

My example was not a good one. But surely we can let slide some of these hard and fast rules. I don't want anarchy anymore than anyone else but lenience pays for itself in the end.

:iconhippo-rim-job:
hippo-rim-job Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
There is no anarchy here.

The majority of the threads I see locked are either spam or some idiot who didn't read the rules before posting.

Personally I find the second far more irritating than the occasional unfairly locked thread.
