I've been reading the threads in the lounge recentley, and I feel that to put an end to all the trouble and bad feelings maybe could you guys consider reinstating the password- old style 18+ lounge. This would (hopefully!) solve the problem of people getting angry over the moderating in the Lounge, as the rules wouldn't have to be so strict and taken so seriously. Thanks for taking the time to read! :angel:

The people who have problems with the rules have already left.....really that's just how it should be, there are other places on the internet that they can find to fill their needs. :D

Leopardskinny,

Excluding the teenagers which comprise the majority of our members, is your solution? That hardly seems fair.

Aren't you under age 18 yourself? You'd be willing to happily stay out of the lounge then?

And GentleRain, you do have a point there.

no, I didn't mean that.. back then 18+ was more of a 'guideline'. You could still get in if you used the password, sort of like an agreement that if you entered you wouldn't get offended. It's ok though, you can delete this thread. I guess it was kind of pointless anyway.

that was the problem back then. It wasn't "just a guideline" it was meant to be a requirement.

But the younger members had nowhere else to post off-topic stuff so they (and you) were in there all the time despite the age requirement.

It makes sense to have the Lounge available to all who come here. Excluding any certain age group, especially the largest age group here, is not fair.

Well, perhaps Dan could upload some episodes of Barney or Sesame Street for the under 18s and let us adults get on with our discussions. I'm sure that would work out well in the long run.

Alternatively, put a link to Gumby's forum up at the top of the lounge... If people feel the need to post NSFW stuff... they can do it there, instead of the lounge. :shrug:

It's not a good idea to put a pinned link to LH in the lounge because that would appear that it is a sister site to Acne.org and that Dan endorses it :shifty:

This is Tenshi. I've decided to take a break form the internet..and probably post later on in the future..so i've created this username for that reason. It had nothing to do with the rules..nor did it for Marino or Poka...just needed a break from logging on so much. we will be back and yeah, there was a lot more issues for me then the 11 yr rule...that was not even an issue for anyone wanting to leave the site for a while...there are just things we need to get on with, rather then racking up all those posts..

But sorry if i dint say Bye to some ppl...u know who u are and i took so much good from the site, the advice and overall feeling better about myself and my self esteem...and those who always stood by me and wrote me beautiful PM's..it helped a lot..thanksyou and ill be on again anyway...good luck to everyone.. :angel:

No not pointless... I totally agree with you.. and I'm sure many others do as well. :doubt:

If there's a password agreement that they must agree too (like we have with The Dump), then we're not held accountable if someone under 18 comes on in. The parents of that child is, not us.

So yeah, I agree.. and if we are able to have a dump password protected (which we all know the type of interesting threads which get dumped).. I don't see why a lounge password protected cannot be an option either.

Although Brandy is right in saying ultimately it's not fair to turn the lounge into an adult fest.. as much as I'd hate to admit it. :razz:

But, I think everyone here is sick of the lounge situation and Jesus Friendliness, the 11 and under rule is not fair to the many posters that are older. I think if anything it's only right to create a "special" off topic area for kids and let the lounge (password protected) be for adults.

In other words.. two seperate forums. :dance:

Think of it like we have an adult acne section here.. why not a place for adults to discuss things? :angel:

I totally agree, the bad feeling in the lounge makes it an umpleasent place to be. I also think an area like that is needed for members so they dont shit up other areas of the board.

Maybe a sub forum of emo for all thier off topic threads and an 18+ disclaimer stylee password forum for the lounge. Just make it clear that no porn, racism, homophobia, really the most important rules are kept rather than silly little things which has been the case lately.

A lizard of marinos and words like 'cock' have been edited, yet someone is allowed to call me immoral and not fit to make good decisions simply because i'm not a christian. If it does indeed have to be that strict at least consistant would be nice.

i whole heartedly agree, LS. this thread wasn't pointless at all.

I think the silent majority agree as well.

Just open the dump up to posting - anyone with half a brain will stay out of there so won't be offended by what's going on. Though I suppose you have to think of the perception of people looking at the site to endorse Dan's products or first time viewers. Forget I said anything.

Whut on God's green Earth Sam Hill is you ah talkin about son? Troubles and bad feelins among membuhs? why... this here is a peace loving community son, restrict teens under 18 to get access, there aint no naked pictures of women in heer. I think teens come here to get help and answers and they do get it. As I see it, our moderators do a mighty dandy job of keeping these so called young teenage punks from posting reeeeediculous posts and causing troubles. Now don't you get all fancy on me now with your high tech passwords and securities...whats next son, super duper juper retina scans and finger printing analysis to get access? Boy I wish I whud....seems to me, everything is proper and running smoothly up in heer. I think it's about time I go get my toe nails chopped, and you kids behave now, ya heer!

My old Grandpappy used to tell me, "Boy if them girls got hairs down stairs, then they're ready to take off their underwears."
