Perhaps a "Political Debate" area? I think I would spend most of my time there

Does virtual coconut oil still smell like coconuts?

Hey Pardus

How do you like the way your thread's going?

Cheers

Hey Joz

Not every post is directed at YOU

How about letting Pardus "voice his own ideas" when HE is ready? I'm interested to know HIS opinion now that HIS thread has dried up. Some may regard it as being HIS right of reply.

Hi Pardus,

I appreciate the attempt at a 'Code of Conduct' - the thought is good. :)

If there's one thing I've seen recently that I would like to see less of, it's attempts to try and regulate behaviours and personalities on the site. We're not all the same, so why should we try to make everyone fit our mould?

I don't see any place for new rules at this point and time and I fear that members would be tempted to point out 'Codes of Conduct' to each other any time they don't like a response.. That just begs for self-righteous behaviour.

If annoyed at someone's response, I always take a deep breath before responding and take some extra time to read and re-read my reply before actually posting it. Typed words can often end up being interpreted in totally different ways and cause nothing but strife.

Caroline.. re: the Balkans. My apologies for the way that thread turned out. I'm not sure whether I should have intervened at some stage there, as it wasn't all in the friendliest tone. It's still a touchy subject I suppose. Glad to see you're still around on the forum :) usually everyone's very friendly .. really.

In the best interest of the friendly nature of the forums, I would like to suggest that any concerns about members' behaviours be sent in a private message to Sam or myself, so we can deal with it as we see fit. These public debates are only causing angst where I feel it's really quite unnecessary. But I do appreciate the thought, Pardus!

Cheers,
Peter

Yes, Peter...I do find myself sometimes debating whether to reply or not to something I dont agree with and 9 times out of 10, I dont...for the sake of peace in TP or be potentially misinterpreted by some. Posting a hurtful and not well-thought out reply in a thread can create a sense of anymosity between the members and I am sure that is not what anyone means to do. Since we are all adults, I am sure that it all comes down to being tactful with a small dose common sense. If someone feels offended by something, the best advice is to remove yourself from the thread and look the other way.

I love the way relationships have been developed, new members I am sure can sense that and a few have joined in in the fun. As addictive as TP can be, it has also become an outlet for some to interact honestly and playfully even on a single day basis. I know I have and despite of what has happened recently, I am sure we can pick up where we left off and continue on with the fun...well, it seems we already have...
