How to moderate a forum... or not.
« on: July 23, 2019, 02:29:33 PM »
Rather than ruin perfectly good threads, I propose we take the discussion here on what, if anything, people want to do to ensure a good time is had by most, if not all.

I would honestly love to hear what you all have to say! (and what ruined a perfectly good thread, too?)
Iíve seen for myself, thereís no end to grief, thatís how I know, and why I need to know that there is no end to love

Oh, the thread wasn't remotely ruined. Just hoped to keep it that way.

Well, you know, there's always one (or two, or five) in every crowd that needs to TRY to be pain in the tuckus...we just try to keep it light...most times we succeed. Other times I get out my BIG MOTHER VOICE (and then everyone laughs at me).

Always up for hearing about anything that can help make it better around here.

We'll never able to please everyone all the time of course and we know we have lost some along the way, who just didn't like here.... but we have a pretty well established ethos now, and if we all are cool with following that most of the time - i think we will be alright more than we won't be.

We all shape what here is everyday.

It isn't hard for us all to get it right and have a few laughs.....Shank nailed it earlier

As for trolls in the forum, defined as those who say MORE negative things about the band than positive, we definitely have at least two trolls here based on a review of their post history. They have also openly called other forum members some nasty things.

That's not the definition of a troll.

"those who say MORE negative things"...I didn't realize that is how trolls are defined. We try to have an open forum, with all opinions welcomed. And, when we do see name-calling, we try to handle that behind the scenes.

We need some new U2 news.  Or a stand alone single.  This is a brutal time for U2 fans

I'm quite happy with a bit of down time.  It was a busy 4 years for the band- busier than usual.  They deserve a break and I don't really want to hear Bono's song about Boris Johnson.
