This Forum is really like no other, let's keep it that way.
« on: March 25, 2015, 04:26:51 PM »
Hey all, I've debated writing this because like the title "This forum really is like no other" and we manage to self monitor and self edit our rants very very well.   

We experience the jovial and "family" atmosphere demonstrated here at MTO and no question this a huge part of why the well established members are still around.  The newbees without question come for the vast knowledge and insane amount of help MTO provides to any and all questions asked.

I lurk on other forums and see attacks and moderator smart asses that have egos like no other which have prevented me from joining those forums.  I see so many rules I get dizzy and forget about making a duplicate thread.  Try to derail a thread and the mod swat team will be at your home in a nano second.  Ask a question that was answered in the 80's and get 3449968372 replies to use the search feature. If you are new don't even think to put your 2c in an topic with established members. There are so many flipping experts and you are just a stupid dweeb.  I'm not on any other forums as a result but the 2 or 3 I do lurk on all behave this way.     

Anyway I'll say it again, I like to believe we have something very special here, edit....  I know we have something very special here.  I've been here about 2 years now and have seen a few lively debates some with very strong opinions that have gotten heated but not nasty.  I've not seen a bunch of attacking or the other childish poo that goes on with other forums which is refreshing.  We do a great job at respecting each other considering the passion on this forum. 

Recently there has been a few pecks and pokes on threads that I've not seen before.  I've noticed mods stepping in to keep the flames down.  I am in no way a sensitive person trust me, but what gives?  Our mods do a terrific job at letting us run a muck, heck try the crap we pull here on other forums and see what happens.     

I've recently heard of a member or two or three that left as a result of sour experiences here.  This will happen sure it's unavoidable with so many people from all over the world, with passionate people.  There is an invisible line though and respect must be given to be expected.   

A lively debate is great, a firm position on your tool of choice is outstanding, bashing makers and tool lines yep love it, wise cracks yes more please, anarchy count me in, but attacking a member or intentionally setting out to go after someone is not flipping cool. 
 
In a nutshell lets follow these wise words.

Awesome!  :tu:

I totally share your view on THIS forum vs Other Forums.

It took me a long time to shake off the fear of some mod getting after me for doing the wrong thing here  :megaslap:

Or some long-term member to think I'm an idiot for coming here and not knowing the difference between a bunch of steels or something  :twak:

It's just as if the people who come here are somehow... filtered in advance  :hatsoff:

Aloha,

Thanks for that post.  We (the mods) have noticed it too and have hoped to deal with it in a light handed fashion.  I completely agree with your post.  It is distills down to exactly what we hope for the interactions that are MTO.

+1  I'm getting tired of people saying just how good this place is.  I mean, just because it is the best place on the net, with the best members, and the best discussions, and the best....

Ahhh, who am I kidding.  The more threads like this, the merrier!!  :cheers:

And isn't "Rule #5 - Derailing threads after 4 posts or less" still valid?

I was looking on a forum for info when the thread I found was 2 pages of regulars moaning the OP didn't use the search feature first.  2 whole pages of these dweebs telling the OP to use search function.  I mean seriously what the heck?  My favorite is someone "derailing" by starting a side yet relevant conversation within the thread and getting REAMED by the forum police.

Yeah no thanks not for me, I just barely follow the rules in life.
