The Eternal Thread - So NSG, What's Going On?

Postby Dread Lady Nathicana » Sun Oct 23, 2011 11:06 pm

Please, don't shoot me for the current title. It could not be helped. :P

There have been multiple requests for a chat thread in various forums. The fact that we have traditionally come down rather hard on them has been in place for ages, and for a number of different reasons. After discussing various points, and the fact that it seems to be something the players would really like to have, we’re going to try it out and see how it goes. Please bear in mind the following:

  • Three strikes, you're out - end of. 1 day ban for first infraction in any chat thread. 3 day for the next. 7 day for the next. Deletion on the 4th. Why? Because these kinds of threads tend to fly heavy and fast, and it is all too easy to let yourself get caught up in the spirit of things, step out of line, and it tends to snowball like mad. We can’t have that. Players with already colorful histories are encouraged to tread even more carefully, as stepping out of line here will only add to that, and prior warnings can and will be taken into account when considering the three strikes notation above.

  • There are no new rules for these threads. If you have a question on the rules, I have links in my sig to handy threads to refresh your memory. Things like ‘do not picspam, do not flame, do not troll, do not bait your fellow posters’ are all very good things to keep in mind.

  • Keep it family friendly as much as possible. In other words, however much you want to hug and snuggle and flirt, do not get graphic with it. This has also been a problem in other chat threads, and some have been shut down for it. Keep it clean, or take it elsewhere. Does this mean sensitive topics cannot be discussed? No – but have care, as with any forum here on NS, with how you handle it.

  • These threads are not a blog, or a stage for you to constantly play out your personal dramas – do not treat them like one. Which is not to say folks can’t ask how one another is doing, offer a shoulder now and then, or give some encouragement. Life happens – and it’s nice to have folks you can talk to about it. Just keep in mind that some things are more appropriate to continue discussing in other places.

  • Each chat thread will be randomly archived after a certain point, so there is no need to race to fill up the pages – these are not designed for competition in mind, just discussion between players on whatever it is that’s on their minds at the time (so long as it is within the site rules.) Please, don’t do it.

  • No, this does not mean everyone can run out and create their own chat threads. There is one for F7, NSG, and Gameplay, and for now, that's all that will be running. Please do not go out and make your own. We still have to moderate things, and that's one of the reasons that chat threads are difficult - they move fast. Too many, and we'll drown. I hate drowning.

  • Title for the thread: If you’ve got some ideas or preferences, let me know – I’ll edit it in to better suit the locals.

So there you go – a thread you can go to and not get yelled at for chatting, or going off topic. Hope you can enjoy, folks!

*wanders in* Wonder how many players are still around who 'get' the reference in the current title to the ORIGINAL "Eternal Thread" of NSG from circa 2003. ;)

Not to worry. F7 has their own chat thread, as does Gameplay. I've been fiddling around with this idea for weeks now. We'll see how it plays out. :)

Have you considered maybe cutting off hands after a few infractions too? I mean, it's pretty much a proven fact that the more harsh your punishments are the better the dette- hi guys what's going on in this thread
Grammar is a tool of the bourgeoisie and most attempts to police it by self-professed "grammar nazis" are little more than thinly veiled drops of pseudo-intellectualism mired in the sentiments of classism and racism designed to marginalize and hand-wave the opinions of groups that lack the ability to or refuse to express themselves in a nice little pre-approved format or were born into an area or socio-economic/racial/cultural group who are, along with their dialect, considered to be "unintelligent" and not worthy of proper respect. Such attempts to bully said groups out of expressing themselves are intolerable and therefore, to that extent, I have decided to make my posts the vanguard for the liberation of language from elitism.

reffering to the topic as F7, a forum, is inherently false advertising, as this is a topic not a forum. the thread should therefore be renamed "The Eternal Thread - NSG'S T7" as the earliest possible oppourunity. :3
