To start with, from here on out, if anyone posts on this board, we're assuming you've read this thread. We won't be accepting excuses from people saying they haven't read this.
Myself and the other moderators on this board have discussed the site rules ad nauseum, and feel that the rules we have in place are all necessary and valid. Therefore, none of the site rules will be changing. While we appreciate suggestions on how to improve VotH, incessant complaining about the established policies isn't going to get you anywhere. Posters who dislike the rules we have in place are encouraged to find a site that better fits what they want, as our rules here are not changing. Additionally, any poster(s) who repeatedly complain will be banned with or without warning at the discretion of the moderators. We love the direction this site is heading and would love to have you all along for the ride, but we are happy with the rules in place and will not be changing them.
As I've said dozens of times, any thought or idea that you want to express can be communicated without cussing. I honestly don't understand why some people are so upset that they can't cuss here. That's a common rule when it comes to online forums, and as I said before, you can still joke around and discuss just about anything you'd like without using those words. We've given you all some leeway here and there, but a lot of posters have proven that they'll push the envelope no matter what, which is disappointing to see.
While there's good discussion on this board, the off topic board has become way too much of a hassle for me lately, considering that it's a free board. Just to present the reality of the situation, if this continues to be too much of a hassle, I have no problem getting rid of the off topic board. I obviously hope it never comes to that, but that's ultimately up to all of you.
I've had a blast interacting with all of you on the main board and on this board, and have enjoyed a wide variety of threads here ranging from serious to sad to scary to hilarious. There's no reason that can't continue, and I hope you'll all be along for the ride.
Is "douche" or any dirivative of the word ok?
That's my only question.
TL: but DR
Worly, if you take away the OT board you better find yourself bunker, cuz I'm comin' after you.
Fear the wrath of Perk.
I really hope a few people that can't handle having to follow set rules, will ruin it for the bunch
I'll be like a neglected dog with food aggression when you put your hand near his bowl while he's eating. I will bite.
Trust me, I hope it doesn't come to that.
Whats the official stance on links and videos if they contain cussing. If there is known cussing, do we place a NSFW for language disclaimer? I am sure you cant go into every music thread and take the time to listen to attached clips for language, whether known or not.
And i will say that i still think mod powers were abused in the original "last person to post in this thread wins" thread
Yep, that's fine.
Neither one is allowed.
Thats fine, and will probably just limit me from linking videos from youtube and links altogether, which is fine
i trust the mods are busy going through all the music threads on this forum (most recently the thread about getting high) and listening to all the songs posted on there in search of bad words in the video or in the comments?
I smell raise for you, Fish!

Like speeding cars on the freeway, there's no way we're going to catch everything. But everyone here knows the rules, so we'll address it when we come across something that violates them.
And that's exactly what I'm referring to when I said that the OT board is becoming too much of a hassle. If people continue to push the envelope over and over, and we feel we have to listen to every single link from beginning to end, we'll just shut the OT board down. Everyone here has to have some accountability and cooperate with us.
This is an important clarification to make. If something you post violates the rules and isn't edited/deleted that doesn't mean it's suddenly allowed. It's impossible for us to catch everything, though we certainly try our best.
Thats cool, i will adopt a policy of not linking vids. While i may not agree with the mod stance on that particular issue, it is your house and it is what it is.
I will say this. Of all the message boards I've read, this one does a remarkable job of moderating itself when you guys are busy with other stuff. There will always be a few trouble makers, but almost always when there's an argument or something, a regular poster will step in and try to put out the fire. And I have probably read 95% of the posts on here.
That's what we're counting on, so hopefully that continues to happen.
I won't have it, I am a rude ruthless (edited by Todd Worly) and everyone of you can kiss my (edited by Todd Worly) (Edited by Todd Worly)(Edited by Todd Worly) monkey (edited by Todd Worly) and that is that!!!!
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
That's an impressive skill you have of getting your posts edited by me without there being any indication that the post was edited. That's talent right there!
AIRBHG can do mysterious things
If I am reading the winds a right, my tendency to not use all the letters of a rudie crudie word is not acceptable. No more S***, F***, etc. I shall most certainly abide by the rule if my interpretation is correct. I love this site and I am usually successful (except in the case of arguing with Rob H) at picking my battles. Thanks for the rules overview although I was somewhat tardy in reading it. I go forward a chasened and compliant Froggy.
