A Home For GD

Recommended Posts

Okay there is no GD.:smileysad:

But some of the GD was entertaining so should we do that here?

We need a place to meet, or do we?

The ommission of GD is no accident. It's a decision to try and focus the community into only talking about things that are positive and useful. But then you have no community chatter, you have no community.

You may use this Entertainment forum for GD. Or the Avatar one. If both then we can have flame wars between which is the bestest GD.

 

I vote entertainment.

I think the Second Life forum will be the 'new' GD.  There are topics one can pick and any number of them can be used.  I do not see why we should limit ourselves to one topic.  I will not.

Nice use of the spoiler feature.

I was thinking either Entertainment or Make Friends would be the best alternative to GD.

Not really liking the fact that there's no GD now. I understand the reasoning, but if people want to be uncivil they'll do it regardless of the arbitrary new forum structure.

I suppose people will gravitate to wherever there are discussions they find interesting and there will be a snowball effect creating a de facto GD. Here's hoping anyway.

That's not a good thing. There are already at least 3 conversations going on about where were all supposed to post non specific stuff. In the absence of a general pool, every sub forum becomes the general pool. The forums use as a resource is compramised and the only option is to moderate with a heavy hand to keep the sub forums on topic.

You end up with threads being moved, threads being deleted and a whole mess of resentment that drives the people most useful to the community as a whole away from the community. The general chatter will never die down, the people who are very subject focused will just give up and find a better venue.

The signal to noise ratio is what matters, no general discussion just added a lot of static everywhere else.

I do understand the lack of a GD in it's old style, that was actually brought on by the state it was in. But as a general place to chat about anything under the sun that's not covered elsewhere  I lean towards Entertainment.

I have a strong feeling that the free wheeling discord style of the old GD will be heavily moderated out and as a result we might have a nice spot to meet. Just to bring up what doesn't fit elsewhere. It would be our place so to speak. If this didn't fit with policy then okay that's fine.

I imagine Entertainment will probably emerge as the nest GD - I mean apart from discussing clubs, pubs and concerts (yes I'm being a tad facetious) what else could one talk about in this section - apart from the things that make SL (and the forums) actually entertaining.

(I hope that makes sense - kinda)

 Hi Mags. Yes it does make sense.

Edit: Still working on the quote bit lol.

Heh, I read 'subject' as 'subjugated'.
