I'm not one to make a big deal about stuff, but I think this site of lately has been getting worse and worse. I've been on this site for over a year and I remember coming her and having interesting conversations with people, and they were clean. But you can almost not find it on here anymore, and I don't know if the site just feels like being more loose about what they or what, but its getting annoying. There have always been "jokes" and innuendos about the site, but the stuff on here has just gotten annoying. I know that I myself am guilty of some of it as well.

I'm not talking about the infamous porn poster, cause there are members like that just can't be helped. But the constant talk of sex and such thoughout the threads is being a little too much for me. Anybody else noticing this or am I alone?

I have to agree with Nobody. Maybe it;s just cause I remember what it used to be like & am not really fond of the direction things are going. What ever happened to class? or is that just a foreign concept these days?

no, i have to agree there...

we have noticed more and more posts and complaints about 'Cybersex' and people prowling the forums looking for 'online relationships' and stuff...

I'm not just talking about "cybersex" though. Just the word sex and related terms are thrown around everywhere, there is a "team" on here called Sex Kittens, now.

Pix, I'm not directing anything at you just the site as a whole. But the comment was the last straw for me before I decided to say something.

That may be so, but there are alot of things in comics that are done that aren't allowed for this site either.

Frankly  I find a team like that insulting, theres more to me than the way I look.  I think that members of that team are probably setting themselves up for unwanted attention.

I've noticed less and less Battles discussion........Mostly because the older members bash the newer ones for bringing them up, even though they weren't on when it was brought up the first time (this really bothers me.) The debates about real comic topics aren't there anymore. There are alot of people on here who have been on here a while and have heard all the battles and debates. But there is a lot of people who are new and don't want to have to search for every old thread. (BTW if someone does a battle don't say ....."it's been done, hulk wins." debate in the thread or move on!)

#11 Posted by Lady Tlieso (10198 posts) - - Show Bio

I agree with you, there are times that older members shoot down ideas of others because it was done already. Theres no reason why the battle/topic/RPG can be started again.

If you're thinking of starting a thread in the battles forum is it really too much to ask for you to search for it? The search function was the most requested feature for the site revision, I would think people would be more apt to use it. Nothing wrong with bumping up an existing battle thread with your own take on how it would play out.

On topic, the forums are entirely what the people of the forum want to make of it. So if you think there's too much innuendo out there, don't use it yourself & don't respond to it when its thrown out by other people.

As long as a link is provided of the orignal thread there should be no reason to lock the new one.

Yes I do think it's too much trouble......I've been on the vine a while and know to do this. But there are a lot of new people who want to jump into the forums so they post a battle thread (which is the easiest way to get into a forums) only to get shut down and locked in the first 3 posts. It's not very welcoming to shut a new person down that quick.

I'm not trying to put this as nicely as I can, but...

You are telling Hawk, threads that involve comic related content should be locked, but I should just ignore use of things that could be offensive to not only younger members but older ones as well that is being posted throughout the site?  I understand the need for the forum search, I do. I supported it being put in, but I think the priorities of the site have gone really down hill if I understand what you are saying correctly.
#18 Posted by Shatterstar (4496 posts) - - Show Bio

Yes duplicate threads comic related or not get locked, it takes 20 seconds to search for a battle before starting a thread, there's no rush to start a thread. Its better than the new person getting berated by a half dozen people for starting a "wolverine vs sabretooth" thread for the 10th time. 

As far as offensive content on the forums, what would you like to see done about it? Certain people are getting themselves banned for crossing the line, posts that are brought to our attention or we see as inappropriate get deleted. Use the +/- rating thing more (which apparently no one uses) and downrate the people you find offensive. Outside of that its up to you & everyone else on the forum to make it the kind of place you want to be. A year ago you had basically one moderator (G-Man) checking the forums, now you've got 5 or 6. Find one of them if you're having a problem with another user.

I get what you are saying about the forum search, I mean I was one who asked for it as well cause the threads were getting old. As for the content, I'm not really asking for something to be done Mod wise about it, cause really there is only so much you guys can do, I get that. But my question is really, what happened? I mean like you just said, a year ago we had G-Man and I didn't see any of this popping up everywhere you look. G-Man barely had to say a word to most of us, and we were fine just like that. Now with as many mods as there are, they get stormed with complaints about other members and such, and the content of the site has gone south. Is there something that can be done? Or is this something we all have to deal with now?

Good thread, Nobody.  I agree with you 100%.  Things are completely different today than when they were when I first arrived on the vine.  To be completely honest, they were a lot better back then.  There was an actual unity behind everything that was done.  Personal issues (lol, what personal issues?) were kept to PM's and were never brought out or talked about in the threads.  As far as content goes, it was way more focused on comics and people weren't trying to push the envelope on certain things.  Back then, people would say to quit being childish and to delete the post.  Now, they simply laugh and go along with it.

I agree to a point bro.. i think some of the fun sexy stuff is jsut fun, as long as its not offending anyone.. And i have seen it as mostly harmless..

As for the other stuff i totally agree, like today i steppe over the line with Akira and i should have had the class to let it go, most of the time i do.. but sometimes i screw up as i did today..
Aside frm that, yes most of the time i wont comment in a battles or opinions thread cause often my point is dumped on cause sometimes i dont know all the facts, i look em up and make a choice and i get rained on from a great height.. hence i dont anymore..

PLUS the fact that if people complain on here there are only a couple of mods i know of who will actually DO something about it, most of the time it seems nothign is done about cybersex bullies hence they are rampant on this site..

And the TEAM stuff dont even get me started, how many of us have had to defend our teams when all we want is to play and rpg and not get SH!t on from a great height.. it is happening sooo much, people who make decisions that certain teams are better than others and such and such.. if you dont like em LEAVE EM ALONE.. if you do SAY YAY GO YOU but MAN OH MAN we a site of bi!ches sometimes.. and i hate it cause 90%of the peopel on her are awesome and love to RPG i personally think ive made some great friends and have sooo  much fun with my writing but then i have to deal with people harrasing me who i have never spoken too but who just feel the need to attack me.. an i know it has happened to others...

this site is loosing its appeal for many great VIners.. and that sux..

rant over :-P

I was PMd this and as im a good person.. i will do as he asks...but...

I'd like to formally apologize to the whole vine but due to sme editing problems ive been banned from the forums, so i wish you can relay the following message to the "Content of the Vine" thread:

"From reading the very serious discussion that has started in this thread, i have started to reflect on all my past actions and demons which i have committed against the vine. I see that i have contributed quite alot to what you all talk about and understand that many of you have negative feelings towards me, as i now accept the consequences for what i have done. Now i understand what pain i have caused and feel sad for those who i have affected in a negative manner, I am very sorry for the harm i have caused to the vine and the people who didnt deserve to be affected.

Sincerely,

ElusiveStorm"

I appreciate this if you passed it on R, thank you

I dont know what time period your referring to exactly Nobody, but I remember a time when swearing an art that was......pretty much pornographic didn't even get a second look. Perhaps it was because there weren't as many people keeping an eye on the Vine, or maybe people where less sensitive back then. I think Shatterstar brings up some very good points in regards to the Battle Threads. It takes all of 5secs to look at the list Eternal Chaos and Buckshot put together, even if its not up to date most of the common battles are in there (with links). It would take another 3 secs to use the new search engine (which is awesome when trying to find a thread from way back).

Seems like alot of the new toys the Admn hooked us up with are going to waste. He mentioned the Plus/Minus system, and what ever happened to simply ignoring a thread? Does the title,"Sex Kittens" really offend you? 98% of the comicbook industry thrives on sex. Half the ladies on here use sexy avatars. How many Marrow avatars are there on the Vine? As a matter of fact how many dudes are rockin a Blob avatar? I've been here awhile and never seen one. Now I understand some people go overboard with the sexuality but it usually happens in the PMs and not the threads.

I think its ridiculous to say you cant find a clean conversation on the Vine. Find any thread Methos, Buckshot, Apparition, Forever, Creator, Sling Shot, Andfrene, or the other 20 users I forgot to mention and I promise u some clean conversation.

Now I understand these are your personal feelings and no one has the right to tell you how to feel. But its my personal feeling that some people are being overly sensitive. Before long avatars will be offensive, Battle Cries will be offensive, and finally teams will be deemed offensive and the Admn will do away with all of it. Then we can all be one collective unit with no individuality as not to offend anyone. Cant wait for that Vine.

@G: As far as the battle threads section, I already agreed with Shatterstar that it should be used. My thing with that was just the priority of the Vine.

As for the Sex Kittens thread, I used that as a current thread involving sort of what I'm talking about. And I was somewhat right about it, since an argument has already broke out in in and some Mod had to step in and delete a couple posts. So I'm not entirely wrong when talking about it. As for the comics have it so it must be ok thing. Methos brought this up and I bring back, somethings in comics aren't ment for this site. There are many mature content that the Terms and Conditions don't allow, but should we just say, "Well its in a comic book, so it must be ok to say." In that logic whats to stop us from swearing at other members, people in comic books do it, right? And I'm not saying we need to ban any talk about sex or whatever, just why is it everywhere now.

As for the decent conversations, yes its true you can find some. There are some really great people on here who I've made friends with, but I find it more often then than I used to that I pop into a thread and there is something.

You are right, maybe I'm just ranting up, I don't think anyone could accuss me of being overly sensitive though. I've been on this site for over a year now and have on talked to a Mod once about another member(and that was the porn poster guy). I don't feel that Mods need to be brought into situations in most cases, that the members need to moderate ourselves, like we used to. Maybe I'm wrong, that is what I'm trying to figure out. Cause I personally feel this site is starting to lack greatly in its content.

Mods delete comments all the time. Does that mean the thread shouldnt have been made? How many posts get deleted from Religious threads, Politic Threads, and even Battle threads? I was on when the Sex Kitten thread was made and there wasn't a problem then. I don't know what happened earlier so I cant comment on it.

As for the sex in comics. Have you looked at the submissions on here? I'm not talking comics that only a handful of people have heard of, I'm talking X-Men, JLA, Batman, etc etc. If its allowed for submissions then why wouldn't it be allowed on the threads? Who said anything about Mature Titles? You said yourself something about being greeted with, "Wanna make out." Now personally I find it funny and think whoever said it was playing around. And most likely it was in an Rpg thread. Is it really a big deal? I understand its a slippery slope but honestly how far do you think it was gonna go?

I keep missing all these incidents of the none stop sex talk. I haven't seen it (not saying it isn't happening). Lately I pop into the team threads (not all) and its just conversation, boring at that. I'm kinda sad I'm missing out on all this sex talk :(

I'm just saying, I see the title and I knew there was going to be some sort of trouble in it. But you know thats neither here nor there, I was just using it as a reference.

What do the submissions say? I think the worst thing I saw was on some character's page(i don't remember whose) it said they were rapped after getting beaten by a super villain. If its something important like that and there is noting wrong with just saying that. I'm not saying ban all sex involved things on the site. I'm talking about going over the top with it. I don't want to go to reference just due to I don't want to point out certain members, cause like I said I'm not up to reporting people. The "Wanna make out" comment I'm sure was in just fun, the reason I used it was cause it was the final comment until I decided to say something. I don't think you quiet get what I'm saying, I'm just wondering where the direction of this site is going. I mean we have a terms and conditions for a reason, I believe. Basically, I'm trying to say, it one thing to have a discussion or mention sex or really anything offensive, and its another to take it over the top.

As for the none stop sex talk, I don't think I ever mentioned, "non-stop" and if I did, I used a wrong choice of words. Its just I see more and more offensive things pop up in just common talk on the site and I'm wondering why? If I remember correctly this is supposed to be a friendly site for all, or as this changed?

Not just talking about written submissions but pictures as well.

I guess I miss the over the top stuff in terms of sexual language.

Personally I think the site is headed in a great direction. But I think Shatterstar said it best when he said its up to the users.

And when terms and conditions are broken the situation is dealt with.

Then this is where we agree to disagree. Cause personally I dont think the Vine is anymore offensive then its ever been. Use to be alot worse.

Of course its a friendly site. But we're not always gonna hold hands and sing church songs. I mean of course fights and arguments are gonna happen anywhere you have a debate that involves Superman vs Goki. Its to be expected.

Nobody came on here and posted a completely legitimate concern of his.  People need to take him seriously.  He has something important to say.  Let's get more focused.

I guess you missed the part of my post when I said, "Now I understand these are your personal feelings and no one has the right to tell you how to feel."  I actually thought I was taking him seriously. I certainly didn't write all that at four in the morning cause I felt like joking around.
