Inconsistent

Recommended Posts

Guest Coalbucket PI

While I certainly enjoyed the T&A threads I agree we don't really need them here.

 

Franklin gets it - I'm not passing judgement on whether porn is right or wrong, just saying that on WATMM, there's no need for it.

I can completely understand this.

 

I'm trying to be completely constructive here; I come on WATMM at work and I prefer to stick to the music threads because I know it will be more straightforward discussion, less silly pictures and potentially NSFW content. I like to look at the off topic stuff but not at work. A lot of the time I am here largely as an electronic music fan, that I presume is the original focus of WATMM.

 

I just want to say that in doing this I find the featured artists subforums completely restrictive and damaging to me coming here to discuss music. That's literally what I want to use this site for and I can't get around it. I just want to find out about music and discuss it a bit; if I didn't know there was a new Wagon Christ album out I don't know why I would want to go in the Vibert subforum as I wouldn't expect anything of interest. Given that I do know there is a new Wagon Christ album, I have no need to go in there because I already know about it, and there is probably a 20 page long thread and the only people posting are people who love it by default, why else would they be in that forum? I also am pretty sure that the vast majority of active members in the music discussion forum are all active in general banter, and I think they go hand in hand.

 

Basically, I think you can improve the music aspect of the site quite easily, and that having a general banter section does no harm to that goal.

I would say something about how I can understand the reasons but two threads on the board aren't doing that much harm and the humor is generally close to the knuckle but you should expect it by now but ennui. I completely gave up when I saw that there actually was a LTM forum. Oh well back to lurk mode.

But, seriously, back to the first sentence: why not just kill WATMM with fire?

because then I will be without a community and daily supply of good music again

:cry:

Oh and while the site is being cleaned up, might I ask if we can get a stop to the stupid thread derailing and trolling in EKT (you know the threads I mean) and maybe curb delet's obnoxious poorly veiled sarcasm?

 

Thanks!

 

Hopefully I don't get banned for talking bad about a moderator. :facepalm:

Dam you Joyrex, where am I meant to get tits on the internet now.

WATMM didn't have dedicated porn threads for years and years (and Joyrex.com never had them). The "nice tits" thread is less than 3 years old, for example. Basically, what started as a one-off thread turned into a series of threads about everything from legs to dicks.

 

Browsing General Banter outside of the comfort of your bedroom shouldn't be akin to running through a field of jizz landmines, never knowing when you might misclick your way to a full page image of some chick's rectum.

 

I tried to slow things down a bit a few years ago by locking the "nice butts" thread, but a couple people complained, and since we didn't have a rule specifically against it, I reopened it. But, really, this is the age of redtube and xhamster, anything you want to see is a click away, so I don't see the point of having dedicated porn threads here.

 

The spirit of GB isn't changing, so please, feel free to write about your massive bout of diarrhea, or whatever else is on your mind, but if you want to share the occasional NSFW image, do it with a text link, and mark it properly. But let's not turn GB into alt.binaries.cockshots.

Because Joyrex has huge balls and makes the tough decisions (and pays the bills, and owns the site...). I just run the servers.

wait a minute, I'm late to the party - so the nice tits thread is gone??? I periodically downloaded them, for anatomy reference (I know seriously, but - zbrush sculpting...) Any way we can still access the thread?

There is an incredible pool of creative, funny and smart people on here who can create a community that is unparalleled on the internet and I'm upset with the logical fallacy that "mature content" makes us 4chan because 4chan could never do the reverse by subtracting porn to get to something like WATMM.

 

QFT. I like that watmm provides such a diverse range of thread topics, from totally puerile to highly informative + everything *espeically good music* in-between. That's why I keep coming back here as though it were some kind of nervous tic. But if there's no longer a place for things like the NSFW MS-paint thread and other watmm classics... i dunno, I fear the magic will be soon lost. The absurdist humor aspect of watmms is something I'm very fond of, and I like how I can learn about astronomy/politics/new music AND see nice ass all in one forum. I just don't like the idea of watmms turning into a PG13 site.

hey I agree--but what's the community? It's clear that the community as the WATMM massive sees it does not square with those who facilitate the community so do we just experiment until we are punished? It's already happening with the new Nice Tits thread. It's ludicrous really but it supports my point. How are we supposed to act? Amending the rules and keeping admittedly broadstroke clauses is pointless. Real-time examples: WATMMixes are a perfect way to extract copyrighted material. "Million Pigs Buried Alive" depicts death. Carestik's lamprey avatar is disturbing as hell because it looks like an ulcerated thumb. Strange Pictures is full of spooky and disturbing shit plus all the other classic NSFW parameters.

 

My point is that WATMM is way more powerful than people give it credit for. There is an incredible pool of creative, funny and smart people on here who can create a community that is unparalleled on the internet and I'm upset with the logical fallacy that "mature content" makes us 4chan because 4chan could never do the reverse by subtracting porn to get to something like WATMM.

Point well taken. I had just seen this from the perspective of there just not being anymore porn on the site, and that doesn't personally affect me in a negative way, so I was for it. I still will be if this is the end of it, and the admins back off on joke threads a bit (honestly, what harm do they do?) but you are absolutely right about the power of the users of watmm, and the whole deal with trying to eliminate all mature content.

 

On the side of Joyrex though, as I've said before, I've known some forum owners before, and when you're running a forum, you have a specific goal in mind for it. The users will often go against that goal though, and will do things you're personally ashamed of, and I'm sure it can feel frustrating, and like you're baby sitting and cleaning up their messes by closing the threads and so forth. I'm sure it's tough to just see the good side of it all. Not that I'm specifically advocating for any of the things Joyrex has done while I've been here, but I'm just saying, it can't be too fun or easy.

aprils fools? :mu-ziq:

 

beat me to it.

 

and that's why watmm is better, you've managed to create a community with this site (which you are cracking from time to time with things like LTM and banhammer purges). what you're trying to do will turn this site into an "IDM fansite" rather than a site where people who are fans of IDM hang out, it's a huge difference, i assure you most of the members prefer the 2nd option.

 

word.

 

 

 

 

Caution: might contain humor

 

 

Yeah, I only visited watmm today because I wanted to post some nice boobs I found.

 

you can still post them to me, I can only afford postage for up to 2 kg tho :watmm:

 

 

I bet they've got loads of tits in LTM. :unsure:

 

they might have, but we got all the dicks :sup:

I guess it depends on what your idea of GB is. My vision of GB is mostly threads about robots. :wang:

Exactly. That's why I'm much more interested in what Joyrex wants to do with WATMM rather than further ad hoc piecemeal modifications of rules. It sounds lame but everything needs a mission statement. If we are to believe that WATMM is "your electronic music resource" then perhaps it should be just that. No GenBan, CHATMM, Blogs. EKT stays as long as you're making music with no more than 5% acoustic elements--same for WATMMixes and all Music Discussion. I'm being facetious but only partly.

And this is the point where the "people who like electronic music but mostly making friends and talking and posting nsfw images" spin-off forum will be created....

 

not to say i won't join it.
