Laurah wants one and a few others do as well. How hard would it be for that? You could call it "L's" Lounge. Therefore no more BS spam of Laurahs spam about her omelettes in anything other than that place. If she breaks the code....you ban her. YES????????

A lounge section is a place to hangout, discuss things, anything from what you do for a living to what types of food you like to what's the name of your plumber.

Just take a look at the "I've got a problem" thread. Stuff like that deserves to be in a lounge.

We have people who come here to talk sports, but people also like to bull**** and carry on with other people.

I've brought this up, but have been denied.

Whatever

Inappropriate language gets beeped out anyway, so I didn't see a problem with it when I first asked about it. Plus, there is a reason for moderators, to force against the rules.

With the way inappropriate language gets filtered here, I highly doubt that would be the central theme.

Well, if I'd like to talk about a new car, where can I do that on this board? Entertainment? Doesn't sound too entertaining to me.

I rather just not discuss this further if something like a lounge section won't even be considered (go look around other message boards/forums, it's on every one of them) because I'll probably get an infraction for something so minute and I'd rather not.

I just think it would be cool to just have like a hang out or whatever forum, just to talk about whatever. We don't want to curse up a storm or anything or talk about inappropriate things, some posters just want a place to talk about things other than football. Also, sometimes there's not a lot of news going on and the main forum is kind of dead, I don't know. I thought it was a good idea.

Laurah1275
09-27-2012, 07:58 PM
I also think it's a good idea, just another room for people to come together and discuss whatever (always respectfully of course). Just like it was pointed out, other sports message boards have them, so I don't see this as a out of the norm request. Thanx for listening.

I see at least a few threads a week where the link to football is tenuous at best and certainly have nothing to do with the Giants. Thses threads get left in TAGF because they are visited and posted to but they dont belong in TAGF any more than a thread about Bountygate. At the very least a "lounge" forum would be a good place for those types, and there would probably be more like threads if there was aplace for them.

And to clear up a question Ro: Thats what we are looking for, just another subforum for off-topic discussions, not any different standards of conduct or anything.

It also might stimulate traffic to the lesser used forums on th is message board. Give people mor reason to browse around when their off topic posts get moved to The Lounge.

Moke

Oh, no, I know. I respect you Roa.

Like I said, if a lounge section where people can talk about random stuff can't be accepted, I don't think an entertainment thread is needed either.

Exactly texture.


What happens if I want to ask a question about financial stuff, or colleges, I know this is a Giants forum.... but come on now. Lots of people here have been here for awhile and enjoy this place and the people around here. We really can't discuss stuff like that?

Sorry to say, but I wouldn't be surprised if people left this board for another just because of that.

Forums are like communities.

It is probably because this site is directly affiliated with the NYG, and that is why the whole message board is heavily censored and moderated.

Plenty of other forums you can go to to get financial/automotive/etc... questions answered.

I know thats not the answer you wanted to hear. Sorry. When the folks who pay the bills dont want something, consider it closed.

A sub-forum takes a hit on the wallet? Really? I'd love to know how that concept works.

Ok. So why don't we create a new Section and call it the "BS Topics" and put this discussion there because it is turning into BS discussion over a simple request. I think the Mods have plenty of other things to take care rather than get involved in this meaningless discussion.

Probably not, because humans created the word "blue" and they said that the sky is blue. Since humans are imperfect, it might not even be "blue"

This is what I'm talking about. No one is power tripping or walking around like "gods". If the people in the front office wanted to have such a forum, it would be here, but there is no reason to get all indignant and sarcastic because you heard something you didn't want to hear.

We have had this conversation with Nilay several times, and each time, we all agreed that such a forum is more trouble than it's worth. If you need proof, look at TAGF. You guys can't even talk about football without blowing up on each other for no reason. Why should we create a forum in which anything can be discussed? It would be a time bomb, and we're the ones who have to clean up the mess. Thats all I'm going to say about it.

Enough of them frequent the boards to know that when something goes really wrong and their phones start ringing, it's a big hassle. Trust me, people have called the front office over these boards, and way more than once. From what I've been told, most of those calls were from a time when there was a forum that allowed any conversation. Blame the people who were here before you(and me), because they're the ones who ruined the chances of that kind of forum making a comeback.

I unfortunately have to agree with DH and the opinion of the front office. Statements often get misinterpreted on a frequent basis that turn into large arguments and become grudges over months because of silly egos. Not saying anyone in this thread would be suspect at that but just browsing around in TAGF, one could see what I'm driving at. This MB simply isn't mature enough for an Off-Topic section and it would require heavy moderation.

From what I've observed, most of the posters in that particular thread are a close-knit group of friends and pretty mature. Now mix in immaturity and huge egos and you got yourself one moderation nightmare and flame war fest to handle on a daily basis. It's a risk-reward thing from the moderators' point of view and I'd have to say the reward isn't worth the risk.

I'm sure as long as you don't make a jerk out of yourself, it wouldn't be too bad. Guys like Morehead and MattMeyer are pretty nice. Though I think having the Lounge Thread was the correct middle ground to go with. I can't tell you how many times I've had my personal opinion on certain subjects misinterpreted here and then turned into fact. Could you imagine that with more serious subjects? If you have any moderation experience, it's just not worth the hassle when dealing with sports fans.

Just my opinion but I do think starting your own message board for such things would be the best avenue. The benefits of being able to have a more open atmosphere in regards to rules (though it has to be strict here for good reasons) and then also having the freedom of who you allow in such a place is tremendous. The way I see it, you could have you and 5 of your pals and perhaps when you get a good vibe from someone on these boards, you could invite them to take a look at yours as well.
