    I AM NOT A MOD

    Just in the time that I have been here some members wonder over and over why the "game" topics get shut down and Mods and other members are irritated with with them. Sometimes to the point of causing problems for themselves.

    1) A Mod doesn't have to justify except to each other or higher-ups. (RamPuppy, Phil, etc...)

    2) Some of the adults on here have children at home and have to put up the non-sense there, after all kids will be kids but this is a place to be away like a mans greenhouse or his garage.

    3) Many people on here are serious collectors and serious collectors are serious people.

    4) Over time you will see many of these die and comeback and die and come back and die and come back and die and come back; Can we say REDUNDANT!

    5) Some elses pocket funds this pile of memory and perhaps he and his chosen have the right to do with this pile of memory as they please.

    6) Personally, my own forum is not nearly this large but games and stuff like that won't fly there.

    7) It is the 'General Discussion' Forum (how observant), Pornography is a general topic as well so is dating and many other crap totally irrelevant to this forums existence. WHY DON'T WE HAVE THOSE THINGS IN THERE TOO?

    8) Game forums already exist, we don't bother them with CP banter. Respect on part of both parties.

    9) Some internet games are down right stupid and childish.

    10) Opinions change over time and what is cool as a kid becomes lame as an adult, humoring little kids is one thing but.............

    Just a few POSSIBLE explanations but I'm not a Mod and I couldn't say for sure what the reasons are. Whatever they are if one is locked think to yourself what is more important; My love of CP or my love of redundant games? You could always find other game sites but you'll be pressed to find a another community this large that is gonna be anymore acceptable of non-sense irrelevance.

    Hey Joe. I can see how some of those topics would get annoying, especially when silly arguments arise in these topics. However, there are many adults that still enjoy a little gaming every now and then, and there can still be good conversation (non adults included) about it. To some, video gaming is a place to be "away" just like it is for some to be in a greenhouse or a garage. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    Joe made some good points but I would like to add the Mod perspective. Mods are not allowed to just ignore threads. We are hobby folk and many are proffesionals outside this forum. We give some of our extra free time to keeping things on topic and civil here because of our mutual interest in CPs and in having a place we can chat about them on multiple levels. Sometimes it is a effort to find the time just to keep up with the other nongeneral forums.

    These various 'game' threads create pages and pages of nonsense that we are obligated to read through, that is just plain irritating. The general forums is there for general CP discussion and the occasional non CP discussion. These various threads (battle of the pics or whatnot) are not discussion IMO.

    pornography is ILLEGAL, game topics are NOT illegal, theres a big difference.
    Personally, I dont think you can compare pornography with games topics.
