Ya I remember the original justification...it was kinda weak then, and now considering how much this has actually ended up annoying many of us... it is weaker now (IMO). A lot of us don't like it. It is a forum...yes frogs are the focus, but generally people just don't go to meet other froggers or people of similar interest to just talk about that 1 interest in that place.
Are frogs the only talk at frog meetings, or do people BS about sports, beer, girls, anime, politics, religion, etc..etc...?
My guess is people like meeting people of like mind, and then getting to know those people?....part of the entire concept/purpose of a forum. Restricting it that much, limits its potential.... Having the option to turn it on/off would at least be nice if that is possible.
How about a vote
at least on some of these issues?
I can go with the flow, but knowing that for sure, that is in fact the flow... would be nice.
We all just had to kinda eat it when our idea of what Dendroboard should or could be didn't match up with what the owner and a handful of mods and the people closest to them in the hobby thought it should be. That is no longer the case. To be fair overall you guys did a good job but it was annoying when we you would be like..
"This is a frog forum, this is what a frog forum is for...take your other interests somewhere else. We aren't going to help facilitate building relationships with people on this board unless it is frog related"
No that wasn't the exact wording, but that is how I think it came off at times.
Anyways, sorry...I'm tired and cranky
