Wow, I'm actually offended that you think we would do that. Of course people make mistakes. We all do. I certainly have in some of the game threads. Of course we would notify people about their mistakes and give them another chance well before banning. We're not heartless. :dk: I'm also talking about banning from a single thread, not the whole site.Please give warning before banning if possible some people may have just genuinely made a mistake (wrong thread) or had a computer problem (double posting)
Oh we would never do something like that here. That's awful that they did that to you!Sorry didn't mean it that way. I've been banned from another site because my computer froze up and I accidentally sent 5 of the same message thinking it wasn't sending. I'm a bit paranoid about it I guess.
No sweetie, I meant no worries, we are just having fun in the Games and Fun Forum.I'm sorry Mia, I honestly didn't mean anything bad by that. I read the whole thread and was just trying to say that it didn't seem like anyone was paranoid for worrying.
>A newbie getting comfortable too quickly. I apologize.
...We all make an occasional mistake from time to time, but its been excessive in some cases. ... it either throws it off track or makes in some to a complete standstill. ...
From now on if you make three mistakes in a game thread you will no longer be allowed to post in that particular thread.
Thanks for your understanding.
We really don't have a lot of rules for the games. There's the one listed above. We prefer that there are no posts with just chit-chat. It's OK to post your response to the post above and then add some chit-chat in, but it's not fair to just post chit-chat as it ruins the flow of the thread. We do also prefer that you don't post twice in a row. ...
Game threads are closed after 500 posts and ...
Adding to this since the games have been moved to their own area. We are going to let game threads to go 1000 posts now and see how it goes.
Last child here!Question... If you give an answer that was given previously, is that considered a mistake? Some of these games have SO many pages it would take forever to read through them to make sure I don't duplicate.
I'm a firstborn so I have an inherent fear of breaking rules.
lol, I agree!You make a good point as well but I stand by opinion that no one should be "banned".
Just the word itself does not have a great connotation.
I don't think anyone should ever be banned from a game thread. We all make mistakes.We are in this group because of our love of kitties. No one knows what is going on with people; maybe they are grieving for a lost kitty, not feeling well, having marital problems or whatever. The last thing they need is to have their errors pointed out. Most of the time the error is caused by skipping a letter of the alphabet. So just skip that letter and
I had my own chronic pain Forum with another person with over 1,000 members.
We had games and no one was ever banned for making mistakes. I have been in
several different types of Forums, political, current events, etc and no one was banned
for making errors.
Let's be kind to each other.
LOL. So stop policing the game threads.All of the Mods' time can be better spent than policing game threads, believe me.
