There is plenty of snark coming from your side of the fence too.

And it IS their site to make how they see fit. Not ours, we are merely allowed to post here as long as we follow the rules of this forum.

Thought policing? Are you kidding me? This isn't 1984!  No ones taking away any rights from you. No one is holding a gun to your head, if you don't like the way this site is ran you have every right to not post here. Then your thoughts cannot be policed.

Why keep arguing? Its done......make the best out of it or move on.

That's what I meant by "problems".  That's not going to happen.

And it wasn't happening before either! How often were posters hijacking threads? More specifically, when did I ever post anything outside the topic of a thread?

Stuff like Rocky and Bullwinkle. There's lots of other non monster stuff in there.

Which at the time wasn't off-topic.

Re "problems" I can't even figure out why you would say any of that.

Sure, but the expectation that the rules wouldn't be changed in the middle of the game is a very reasonable one.

Not ours, we are merely allowed to post here as long as we follow the rules of this forum.

Allowed::) May I point out to you that without posters there is no forum? Without customers there is no business, and we're the customers here.

I'm fine with trimming the fat.  Some topics I was wondering about; The Misfits (horror punk band), Haunted Mansion-the ride and records (and other dark rides), horror lps/records, Rob Zombie....and Halloween (which thankfully seems to be being preserved.

I'd post links but I'm on my Nook and besides if a particular topic isn't rescued it could always be restarted...if it still has a fitting home.

You implied that you wouldn't have any future problems keeping threads on topic. Well there have not been any such problems in the past.

Yes we are allowed.
No doubt about it.
If people get out of line they get warned if they keep it up they are banned. We may be customers but that does not give us the right to act however we want. Although unfortunately it seems many people believe that on the internet and in real life.  A forum has rules, they also have the right to change them however and whenever they see fit. Yes its possible that if enough people get disgruntled the site may die off. Or it may thrive. Time will tell.

I post in the GENERAL DISCUSSION a  great deal and i apologize if I was straying off topic.
The other day I posted a statue that reminded me of a zombie.
When I saw it I thought to myself "Hey, this looks like a zombie, I gotta post it on UMA"
If that was wrong of me...well, it was an innocent mistake.

I'm curious how the new version of the site will work out. I've enjoyed connecting with many members here and hope we can continue.

The members board was my favorite place to get to know people. Oh well, guess my presence here will decrease. Have fun guys.

I guess I have mixed feelings about the changes, however I think that the overall result will be positive.  I like the idea of the site being more monstercentric (!).  I will miss the glimpses into the lives of some of my fellow monster kids.  I hope the drama will be lessened due to the absence of some of the forums.  Realistically, I'm sure there will be other occurrences of drama in the existing forums. I appreciate the work of the moderators, I think they do an excellent, albeit thankless, job.

See---that's where everyone has a differing view on what's topical and what isn't.  Alice Cooper, Kiss, Rob Zombie, Misfits----I mean: they all obviously LIKE horror themselves. But they certainly arent monsters or  monster movies. They're just people like you and me who like monsters. Kirk Hammett i could understand a discussion about: He collects monsters.

But when FM went into the realm of having covers dedicated to Alice Cooper and Kiss( back before/right around the time Ferry and Forry had a falling out:),I was left scratching my head. And stopped buying the magazine altogether. So---this task could prove monumental depending on how rigid the moderation is intended to be....because if someone views a thread as "not monstery enuff'"I suppose it could vanish.

that's why I asked about LIS, ST and SW......I didnt want to be put on probation or banned. But a clarification was made.

To me (and I could be wrong), it just seems as if they want threads like "what's your favorite flavor of Jelly Belly?" to cease, as well as some of the arguing/bickering that tends to follow such hot button issues as the aforementioned jelly belly flavors. :angel:


For the record: I don't eat kittens. But when I was unemployed, I did make jokes about fattening up my cat for Thanksgiving one year. I dont eat humans either: but  I have joked about that as well. But please: don't eat kittens. It's sad. :'(
