Should we have a Real Life Stuff/Rant section?

Post by Wild Starry Moony on Sat Oct 24, 2015 4:21 pm

And we have a rule that what happens in rant stays in rant? So for instance if someone posts something about a very serious life event, unless they want to we don't bring it up in other threads. We've had threads about this sort of stuff before, but a centralized place for these kind of threads would ensure they get read (if someone wants advice) and would help keep everyone up to date with emotional happenings so no one says something insensitive by accident (which I've done a few times.)

Apologies for the slightly delayed response, but good question in light of recent events.

There's really no big issue when it comes to occasionally bringing up a real life issue or rant here and there.  It was only a problem beforehand due to one particular user who was doing it rampantly despite being asked not to multiple times. That user isn't with us any longer, so I think everyone can pretty much relax and resume our operations as usual.

Of course, if you'd like to create your very own rant topic just to keep everyone who you discuss those issues with up to date, that would work just as well.  We've generally posted rant/issue topics in the "Crossing the Border" section, but I suppose they could work just as well in "The Slums" general area.  We're really pretty relaxed about that sort of thing.

If enough users would like the Slums to have its very own "rant" sub-forum, we can make that happen too. How does everyone else feel about this proposal? Surprised

Yes that sounds good but I think we need to be careful because anyone can see what you post and if there are any personal issues then maybe just private message? I am for the idea though Very Happy Very Happy

@ALM no prob! Thanks for replying. Arthur Anyway, while it isn't necessarily a big deal (except for ... ) i just remember it seemed to work pretty well on other forums. Plus it would give newcomers who may not necessarily feel comfortable posting an emotional topic in a more public and other issues related sub-section a place to post that stuff.

@Kerry You're right sis, the admins are pretty awesome! Very Happy

Aw, shucks. We're truly touched. We do our best to live up to our very awesome members' expectations.
Just to show how much everyone is rubbing off on me...



There!
Anyway, feedback taken and much appreciated. I'll give it a day or two, field a few more opinions on the matter, and maybe poke and see what I can do.

I'm iffy about this, if not totally opposed to this.

PopCult's insessant and excessive pity-parties aside, rant threads have been playing a contributing factor in some of our former members leaving the Slums altogether. Specifically, one member, whom I still choose to not mention by name to protect their identity has told me that one of the reasons they felt driven away from here was because a small handful of other members were complaining about them posting a rant thread and contributing to the air of negativity that's been problematic lately . . . yet, that same small handful of members have no problem with other members, like, say, Kerry, ranting.

So, as I said beforehand, if we're going to allow ranting around here in a reasonable fashion, then people deserve the right to share their problems with the community without other people coming down on them for disrupting the community with negativity while showing other ranters extra consideration for one reason or another; everybody should be given the consideration to be able to vent their frustrations irregardless of who they are or what their frustrations are.

That said, I personally don't believe an entire board dedicated solely to ranting is entirely necessary, as Moms said, rant threads can easily be posted in the Crossing the Border board; perhaps CTB could have a sub-forum for ranting, but I just don't think an individual rant board is something that's entirely needed.

But then again, what do I know?

I'm also thinking that a sub-forum would probably be the best way to go if we do implement something along those lines. Until then, anyone interested can feel free to create their own rant topic in the Crossing the Border section, and we'll just move it over to the sub-forum if that winds up happening at some point.  Regarding equal ranting rights, everyone should be able to discuss how they feel without others using it against them unless it's the sort of thing that's unduly discriminatory (which past rant topics really haven't been in any serious way).  As I mentioned in my previous lengthy post covering some of these issues, I agree that sort of thing shouldn't be happening in the future.  That specific incident was largely exacerbated by the entire "Pop Cult" problem, which is pretty much finished, done with, and part of the past.  

Anyway, good to see you back in action! Marina

I see that the "Something Awfully Famous" notice is still at the top of every page, as it has been since July. Isn't it time to replace it yet?

Regarding changing the banner message, we'll see.  Maybe when CNN gives us the same sort of glowing recommendation. clown
