Off-topic forum title

Quote:
Off topic (23 Viewing)
General off-topic chat goes in here. Warning: threads in this forum can contain mature or offending content. Use at your own risk.
This is the new description of the off topic forum. And I must say that I find it quite hilarious. What is the point of this? It looks like the off topic forum is a damn porn forum?

I think people might wonder what it is all about. I do, at least.

more like a general disclaimer and unofficial granting more slack to the OT forum.

I think that it might actually scare new members away from the off-topic forum. It usually takes time for new guys to start visiting it, and this doesn't really help.

And do we want more slack?

But it is good that it is discussed, so that members can say what they think.

I like it. It gives people fair warning of what might be there, and I don't think it'll scare anyone away. At worst it'll keep out those who are easily offended, who should probably stay away anyway with things like Axx's hindquarters being posted.

Either the warning stays, or we put up a rule that says, "obsene content will be deleted and members in question penalized."

I think the disclaimer should instead mention "some threads", otherwise it could be any thread that people suspect contains mature or offending content.

This is a better example:

Warning: posts in this forum by CS2X can contain mature or offending content. Read at your own risk.

Well, if someone found it offending, then just post a copy of my post and put my name there instead of CS2X .

(seriously tough it was a joke, I really don't want to offend anyone with this post)

Well, let's think: When was the last time someone said "the sexual content in this thread offends me, please remove it/post a warning next time/etc."?

True. I think it's definitely helpful to have a warning.

Actually, no.

Besides, you're not an example, you're always bitching about something.

Hmm maybe if some admin changed the topic name on that thread with a warning thing, then ppl like lightwing wouldnt go there cuz they knew they'll get offended, isnt there some sort of plugin for wbulletin so that you can preventing underaged members from lookin in it, just some advices. And btw I think that its not a harmfull thread, its just a joke man, come on!

you can take a bit of humour, but I wonder how many people would laugh if I would mock their religion in that way? For some people I know, their "gay pride" is almost quite like a religion, because threads like that made sure they never "came out of the closet" before they did. Accepting your "different" sexuality is a very difficult process, and - as I said in the topic itself - mocking gay people got quite old quite fast.

Either way, I don't care what happens to the topic, but I always have a silly urge to put things in perspective. Carry on with your lives then! :P
