    NOTE FROM SARA :

    This one makes 11 members this week so far.

    You don't have to be a first-time poster to be banned for posting garbage.

    Please try not to waste our time and space.

    It's like the 18th-century english bridge, still marked with a notice that any graffiti would result in the perpetrator getting sent to Australia. Douglas Adams marveled that the bridge wasn't covered in spray paint by now.

    Good point, Takkyuu tama.
    My attempt at being witty outran my intentions.
    I should have left that paragraph out and just appealed to all members to help me keep the Forum junk-free by reporting bad posts to me.
    I hadn't heard that one about the bridge though. Good one!

    However, if your only post is something trivial like a smilie, your post will be DELETED and you will be returned to "Registered User" status.

    Off-topic posts and short posts with insignificant content (such as just posting "I agree") are considered Trivial and will also be subject to deletion. Instead of just posting "I agree", for example, take a few minutes to explain how or why. Explain and elaborate a bit, to make your post worth reading.


    Hi,

    First post here and I really need something sorted out for me, so I dont end up getting banned or returned to 'registered user' as I do tend to waffle a bit and am bound to end up going off topic at some stage

    In the above post from the Administrator it is made fairly clear that off topic stuff in enough to get it deleted and your staus returned to how it was when u first started, that bit is pretty clear so far The question I need to ask is, and here is where I will probably start to waffle

    1. I looked at the posts that got the other two on this thread banned, and yes they were off topic, but they were BANNED not just sent back to 'registered user' as is stated above. So, do you get banned or returned to 'registered user'???

    2. One person only has one post one there name, the other has two. Did the second one do something else to get them banned instead of just sent back to 'registered user'???

    3. If I was to post an off topic post, would I be banned immediately, or would I get a warning first, like, 'first strike and your out'???

    I hope someone can clear this up, as what is said and what appears to have happened are two totally different things.

    Thanks,

    Julie

    Hi Julie

    Welcome, and thanks for posting.

    Yes, there was some discrepancy there.

    At least I'm going ahead with banning members who have never posted anything, after giving them a few months to do so. A few at a time, whenever I have some spare time.

    My original idea also included deleting trivial/junk posts by first-time posters who were just posting to get promoted from "Registered User" to "Member, so they could view/download pics.
    Deleting their only post would have returned them to "Registered User" status again.

    In theory, that would have been fine.
    But after trying it out on the new Forum (which was a major upgrade from the old Forum) after October 1st, 2004, I discovered a problem.

    A "Member" demoted to "Registered User" retained certain privileges that should be reserved for "Members". That's because of the way the software of the new Forum is programmed, and that can't be changed by Moderators or Administrators.
    That was unacceptable.

    I therefore had to switch from simply deleting "garbage" posts by first-time posters to banning them.
    That's the only way to completely strip them of their privileges as "Members".
    They would then have the option of signing up again under another username and starting from scratch.
    I've edited the post at the top of this page slightly to update a line that you quoted.
    Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    1.) Sooo....... First-time posters who post garbage to get promoted will be banned. They will not be demoted first. Their only warning will be reading this thread.

    2.) The banned member that you mention with two posts actually had posted 4 times. 3 of the 4 were "garbage" posts. I banned him after seeing his 4th post (above) and also deleted 2 of his other "junk" posts. I left his 4th post here as an example for others to see.
    (His counter indicates 2 posts because I deleted 2 of his 4 posts.)

    Another example: One user (above) posted the single word "hello" in several different threads as his only posts. He was banned.

    Another example: One user just posted "mmmm" in a thread as his only post. It was completely off-topic and meaningless, so he was banned.

    Another example: One user posted something like "I'm posting this so I can download the pics now!". He was banned.

    Members had complained to me about the posts of these banned members that I've mentioned. Why? When they logged in, they saw new posts in threads and eagerly went to see what had been posted. Pure junk. A waste of time for all members who were expecting to read a new post. Just garbage cluttering the Forum.

    3.) Before I ban a member I check their other posts, if there are any.
    A member who has already posted acceptable messages will likely only have their "garbage" post deleted. A possible exception would be if their 2nd (or 3rd.......) post were something obnoxiously taunting like (for example) : "I'm just posting this to see how long it takes to be deleted, ha, ha!". I'd likely delete that post AND ban the poster.

    Am I too strict? I don't think so.
    A) I'm enforcing a Rule that all members agreed to when they signed up. Namely: Members must post in order to view/download pics. Inactive accounts will be deleted.
    B) I'm trying to keep the Forum free of junk posts because the Members of the Forum don't want to waste their time reading garbage that just takes up space in their Threads.

    Anyway, this Forum is for the Members to use, enjoy, exchange ideas, pics, links and so on...
    A member who posts something shouldn't worry about being banned as long as they respect the rights of the other members, and provided they don't violate the Rules they agreed to when they signed up.

    If any member has any doubts or questions about posting, I'll try to provide an explanation.

    Don't worry... Be happy...

    As long as you are not insisting that we call you Mistress, you are not being too strict. If you want ME to call you Mistress, you'd better have a very convincing reason, like something tied around my sac and an evil grin. That would do it.

    My recollection s that part of the motivation for changing the enforcement of the rules is that it would be to encourage posting (but, hopefully, not to encourage people to post three messages that say "hello" - whatta dork, thanx for getting rid of him). I'm still thinking that more could be done to encourage posting without the carrot and stick thing, but we seem o be doing most of what is traditionally done -- there is a variety of people and viewpoints, decent rate of new messages coming up, etc. (When I first landed here, the forums were sooooo empty...)

    Still need more women -- we have some great ones now, but we can always use more. Muah hah hah hahhhh... Okay, so if I ever run into a ballbuster who is somewhat computer savvy, I'll send her this way (just don't tell her that my real name is Manuel Alphonse Rodriguez de la Rocha).

    Arrow Update

    I have now caught up on removing inactive Users and Members from the 'Members List'. Almost 1,300 have been removed.
    I'll now just have to remove a few from time to time to keep it updated.


    The Usernames removed are in the "Ballbusting World" Forum in the thread called "Recently Removed Members" at:
    www.femaledom.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2277


    By the way, there is absolutely no difference between banning a member and removing a member from the 'Members List'. The effect is exactly the same.


    About 98% of those removed had never posted anything nor had they even logged in for over a year. They were really no longer active members, so removing their usernames was just a way of updating the 'Members List'.


    The other 2% were removed for other reasons.


    Reasons for being added to the "banned" list remain the same:
    • Users or Members are expected to post and participate within 2 or 3 months of signing up.
    • Those who post garbage/junk just to view/download pics are subject to being banned.
    • Those whose posts are way off-topic.
    • Those whose posts are overly negative (such as nasty name-calling of other members whose particular fetish doesn't coincide with one's own favorite fetish).
    The only usernames that belong on the 'Members List' are:
    A) active members who post and
    B) users registered in the past 2 or 3 months who haven't had time to post yet.


    This process of "pruning the deadwood" from the 'Members List' is good for all present and future members. The posting rate has gone up, partly because we are keeping the Forums free of posts that are completely off-topic, overly negative, trivial/meaningless, and otherwise undesirable.


    Members who post on-topic need not worry about being banned. We encourage members to post about anything at all that's fetish-related that isn't off-topic, no matter whether other members are interested in it or not. If you post about something that hasn't been discussed in an existing thread, just create a new separate thread. It just has to be related to the topic of the Forum you're posting in.


    So please feel free to participate by sharing your fetish-related interests, fantasies, stories, pics, links, ideas and so on. That's the purpose of these free Forums and that's why we're all here!


    As before, any comments about this should be posted here in this thread.

    Arrow ATTENTION: > First-Time Posters

    Attention:
    New Members Who Want To Post For The First Time


    Users who make their first post sometimes get banned because their post is off-topic or inappropriate in some way.


    For example, in the thread entitled "Ballbusting Pics - Attached", some Users have been too eager to post for the first time in order to be able to view the attached pics full size and maybe download them. Recently some of them have been posting short messages such as "Nice pics, guys!" or "Please post more pics!" and have had their posts deleted or have been banned from the Forums (or both).

    In post number 37 of that same thread I explain that the thread is for posting attached pics (as the title suggests) and that unless a posted comment there has an attached pic, it will be deleted and the member may be banned.
    ( www.femaledom.com/forum/showpost.php?p=7713&postcount=37 )
    Threads such as that one are not a good place to put your first post.


    SUGGESTION:
    First-time posters would run less risk of offending others (and being banned) by posting in a thread such as "Introductory Posts By New Members" which is located at:
    www.femaledom.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2368
    In that thread you can introduce yourself, describe what kind or variation of 'ballbusting' interests you most, etc., without much risk of having your post deleted or being banned.

    To read what you agreed to when you signed up, click on the word "Register" near the top left of this page.
    It's a standard form that basically says that you shouldn't do anything illegal (like child porn and a whole lot more), but you should read it again anyway.

    It includes "you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, hateful, threatening..." and other hard-to-define things. Better read it again completely.
    It also says that we "have the right to remove, edit, move or close any posted message or thread for any reason."
    Those who can't find where to click can click on this link to read it:
    http://www.femaledom.com/forum/register.php

    Most of the other rules are mentioned here on this page.

    Members who have something specific in mind that they're wondering about posting or not can ask me if it's OK, either here in this thread or by PM (Private Message).

    what happened?

    Sara,
    I appreciate your concern for keeping this forum clear of clutter and inactive users. however, I do not understand why I was banned and thus ****** to create a new account to ask you about it. My former account was mdguy22.

    I registered just the other day and made two posts, both of which were on topic and informative. In my second post (Devices and Equipment for BB), I was responding to a poster who attached a drawing of a crusher device he had designed. I started out by stating that I was unable to see his attached image and did not understand why, and then I went to great lengths to discuss his idea, make suggestions for ways it may be improved upon, and suggest other ideas as well.

    Today I tried to log in and found that I was banned. Furthermore, the post that I made that was on topic and fully compliant with the forum regulations has had all but the first sentence deleted. What happened?

    I came back tonight in hopes of seeing some responses to my message and continuing the conversation about crushing devices, and now I can't even find the message that I was originally responding to.

    Can you please tell me what I did wrong so that I can be sure not to do it again?

    Hi mdguy23

    Of course I'll answer your question. I certainly don't ban members for no reason or just to be mean.

    Your post (by mdguy22) which is still in the renamed thread "Devices and Equipment for BB", at:
    www.femaledom.com/forum/showpost.php?p=9326&postcount=27
    starts by saying:
    Quote Originally Posted by mdguy22

    I posted my comment there when I banned 'mdguy22'.

    Basically, to me, your post there indicated that you hadn't read the rules, tips and advice in this thread, where all members are informed that after making a first post it takes up to one hour for the system to update your status from 'User' to 'Member'. A 'User' can't view/download attached pics, but a 'Member' can. It seems that you hadn't read this thread before posting the quote above. Otherwise, you would have known that information instead of posting that you couldn't figure what was going on.

    I'm sorry, but I just don't have the time to post an explanation to each of the 1,500+ members who got banned because they didn't read this thread, just to explain to them what's already explained in this thread.
    Also, doing that would annoy other members who want to discuss ballbusting or other fetish-related matters rather than reading 1,500+ posts by members who haven't read this thread, followed by another 1,500+ posts by me explaining that the information they need is in this thread. That's why the Forums' Rules, which all members agree to when they sign up, include the fact that Administrators and Moderators "have the right to remove, edit, move or close any posted message or thread for any reason."

    But I'm certainly willing to explain the exact reason to those who ask me, as you politely did.

    Members who don't read this thread are missing out on a lot of such information, and sooner or later are very likely to run into different situations that cause problems for themselves, for other members or with the forum system.
    That's why the title of this thread includes the phrase "Read Before Posting!".

    I have nothing against you, of course. And I hope you'll have the patience to repost what you posted previously under the UserName "mdguy22". I'm sorry to have caused you this extra work.

    As I recall, you said that you're 23 now instead of 22, so your present UserName will be more suitable than your previous one. (I'm trying to look at the bright side of this too. )

    If you want, I could delete that post by 'mdguy22' that I quoted above. Unless you say so (preferably by Private Message), I'll leave it there.

    Anyway, I'm glad that you're back, and also that you've read this thread now. You sound like an interesting member to have participating here. And thanks for asking for an explanation in a friendly way.

    Off topic posts

    If you wish to post about other things then ballbusting feel free to do so.

    Create a thread called off topic + whatever topic it is. That way members dont need to go into a thread with off topics if they only want to read/write about ballbusting.

    If you are a new member here and start out by posting off topic posts you will get either a warning or a ban so please dont.

    Thanks in advance.
