How about a private invite-only sub-forum where 'Dromers could discuss their sexual peccadillos?

On the one hand, a sub-forum would be cool but really some of us (myself included) probably need to reign it in a fraction - the conversations have been getting a little risque lately, I can't argue with that.

I think it would be more... Moderate, if it was only " after dark" subjects, within a not too graphic language and politics & religion was still off the table.

But then again, we are the Technodrome Forums. : lol:

Aren't there like, a million other forums where you can discuss this stuff with people who actually want to talk about it?

I'm not sure why a TMNT forum with less than 100 active users and even a fraction of that actually wanting to discuss that stuff would be good.

Cubed instigated one of them with his 'crush on teachers' topic. What was he expecting, lol?

Anyway, I said before this thread was created that myself and others had went too far. But to be fair, it was only a couple of nights - it's not like we've been posting that way since we joined. It was a rare one-off and won't happen again.

Katie
12-04-2014, 06:35 AM
Yeah, I'm for this. This place has gotten real f*cking gross.

Thirded for whatever it's worth. I don't care to know what people's fetishes are and what they do in their sexual lives. This is a TMNT forum not a porn site or Tumblr or any other place people go to talk about their sexual lives.

Topics that get hijacked into discussion of penises and pegging and what one would do if the changed gender, and all manner of porn just don't belong here.

Like it or not TMNT is a kids property. You want little ones reading some of this garbage?

Davetello
12-04-2014, 06:44 AM
Lol at the moral police. Look, Katie, most people were aware that it wasn't right to be doing seeing as young kids post here. That point was made repeatedly. But things escalated. It was a two night thing for most of us fuelled by tiredness and boredom and won't be happening again.

Your general argument is wrong anyway. You say it's a TMNT forum but the Everything Else section exists for non-TMNT related debate. I agree it was wrong and unsavoury but it's over now. And you know that you yourself have instigated some mind-numbingly boring discussions anyway.

Generally though, you guys are right and the discussion is over. It simply escalated. Some of the others don't care about possibly "offending" people, but I regret what was said, FWIW.

Cure - given the way you behave on here you're the last person who should be dictating the content of the site. All the sex talk in the world doesn't hold a candle to your sarcastic, obnoxious persona.

"It's just too bad Krang is barely around anymore." You'll probably never understand why I find this so funny.

I think a sub forum would be fine for those who want it. I'm not bothered by the talk as I've heard stuff like that all of my life in high school and in college. Heck, I laughed when I read some of the posts, but if people want a sub forum of that, I say go for it. And if you don't want to talk about that stuff, then you don't have to visit said forum. It's for those who want to view it.

Nothing to be discussed in the sub-forum would even have to be "dirty" it would just be designated for adults only.

I also think this place has gotten pretty sexual lately, to say the least. But to be fair, some of the threads do instigate it (i.e. Cubed's "student crushing on teacher" thread - I mean, come on. That was basically ASKING for sexual answers).

I do agree that we need to seriously keep an eye on ratings that our discussions get into. Cubed's hot teach thread got Way out of hand.

I don't know about the subforum, because we tried that in the past. But there's nothing stopping you guys from making a social group (invite only to keep out the young'un)...

No, dude, seriously, just like before when I tried to Edit my own post, Something COMPLETELY different was in the text box! Totally random sh*t like that's been happening for like an hour.

I repeatedly tried quoting Cubed's post of "Aren't there like, a million other forums where you can discuss this stuff with people who actually want to talk about it?" again just now only to have nameless's post show up in my text box, until it randomly stopped happening.

Earlier, I clicked "Edit" on my own post in one of the General Discussion threads, and instead my text box said something about Leatherhead from someone else's post.

It seemed to have calmed down but I've been getting really weird errors like that ever since I got on here tonight. I had a Database Error shortly after logging on around 10pm, for about 15 minutes, and nothing's been quite right since it fixed itself.

Was definitely specifically going after Cubed for his "Take it someplace else" bit when he's the one who stirs it up the most, but feel free to think what you want. :lol:

I'll just chalk it up to whatever's causing the Errors. I probably won't directly quote anyone for a while, since I didn't even notice that the wrong Quote ended up in my text box.

Quick tip: Nameless doesn't use capitalisation. CyberCubed does. That's how I keep from getting them mixed up.

I'm all for a social group if a section can't be made. Anybody want to volunteer to make the thing?

Commenter 42
12-05-2014, 02:49 AM
Is there any chance that there are any actual kids on this board?
I've noticed a few teens, but haven't come across any young kids. I get the sense that almost everyone is 20+.

It would be nice to have an anger room, or adults only etc, not just for topics of sexuality, but a place where stupid arguments can be moved to. I get that people are annoyed by them, and that PMing is preferred, but sometimes, as witnessed this summer, there are numerous people involved, and maybe the argument needs to go on for a bit before it can be resolved.

I feel that, in many instances, people snipe each other because the argument is moderated, and people hold grudges. It seems to happen a lot.

Maybe this is what the Volcanic Asteroid was... I don't know.
What happened to cause the shutdown?

pennydreadful
12-05-2014, 03:42 AM
I'd be happy to make the thing, but we should probably discuss what exactly we're gonna use the place for - like Commenter said, maybe there's a need for a place where additional topics other than sexuality can be discussed.

Commenter, I know that Snake is under 18... I think part of the problem as well is that people who are under 18 can also be browsing the forums without necessarily being a member... like Machias said, we probs don't want to draw heat from an angry soccer mom. :lol:

EDIT: I've created the group - it's called The Technodrome After Dark Discussion Group; it's invite-only and nothing can be read unless someone's a member, so we can all talk comfortably without worrying about anything we say (which, frankly, I think is a good idea for a variety of reasons). If there's a particular person you want me to invite, let me know/if you want an invite, let me know - I've already sent invites to some of you. :)

Volcanic Asteroid was the proto-Technodrome After Dark, an attempt to lift the ban on religious and political talk....but it flamed out.

The Disintegrater Unit is where threads/posts are sent to when things get "out of hand" if not deleted out right...not 100% sure what makes them DU worthy as opposed to just straight deletion, but you know.

Candy Kappa
12-05-2014, 03:56 AM
I guess those threads that ends up in the DU, is there for setting an example, or too hilarious to delete.

pennydreadful
12-05-2014, 04:17 AM
Can't lie, the DU thread has made for some interesting reading at times... :lol:

I had always thought that whatever ends up there was either meant to be a warning to others, or that there were limitations on what can be deleted (like maybe stuff can only be deleted if it's really recent?). I dunno.

ya i always like to try and find out why people got banned and normally find my way to the DU and have a good laugh.... and never noticed before but Netkeeper is right i rarely use capitalization. i think i'm to use to auto-capitalization and it doesn't do it on the drome.

Who needs to watch soaps when we have the Technodrome Forums? :lol:

I'm thinking of nicknaming the forums as "The 'Drome Place" (Technodrome Forums + Melrose Place drama = 'Drome Place) since all this stuff happens with mostly young adults in one giant apartment complex-- Uh... I mean in one giant forum area.

It has your eccentric characters/users, sexually-charged threads, tirades and insults, explosions (aka controversial or divisive topics; such as the impending explosive thread about Laird's critique of the 2014 movie (http://forums.thetechnodrome.com/showthread.php?p=1368331#post1368331)), having multiple usernames and trolling (disguising true identities), alliances/cliques being formed and against each other, people vying for power (aka a few users wanting to be 'Drome moderators), plus angst-themed threads. ...All the components needed for a soap opera, right? :P

You know, I was just thinking about this, and I have a suggestion. On another TMNT forum I'm apart of called Stealthy Stories, we have a mature section called Naughty Fanatics Unite. It's only open to those over 18 who have 50 posts and they must ask two mods or admins for permission. Now I know you guys have vetoed this, but I just wanted to throw it out there that it could be possible to create something like that for those who want it.

Actually though, it'd probably end up just being more like Passions. :trazz:

I'd say so. I mean, there's a sequel to a movie most thought was crap coming, so not many Dromers are excited for that. Over at the Nick Toon, we're not getting a new episode until January most likely. All we have to be excited about is the 2k3 series coming to Nicktoons, which, by the way, is coming so SLOW.

Ohhh Kaay. Isn't that a little odd for a forum dedicated to a children's toon, comic book, and movie franchise? It gets hard to prove out ages, moderate, etc. Sounds like a liability. My very honest opinion.

I find it funny how many people have no problem being "adults" while having overly-serious and often-contentious conversations about a kids' cartoon, but don't think it's okay for grown-ups to have a place to talk about things grown-ups actually do. It's very telling.

I think the worst thing is not being able to discuss real world problems such as politics, religion, etc. here. I know those kind of debates don't tend to end that well on the internet, but on a forum that consists mostly of adult members, I find it a little sad that people cant' control themselves and be mature about such issues.

Sure, this is a TMNT forum, but every forum needs some sort of off-topic section. And as much as I enjoy discussing video games, movies, music, etc. real life also exists and people should be allowed to discuss politics, the economy, society, religion, etc.

Hey Darth - I get what you mean re people proving their age; by the same token, it is discussion-only -- it's not like we're linking to adult material or anything, it's just for talking about stuff.

I'm in charge of the invites and as nameless said, there aren't going to be any invites issued to brand new members where I don't know them/can't gauge their maturity level - that's just asking for trouble.

I appreciate that there are a) people who are underage, and b) people who aren't comfortable discussing such things. That being said, there are people who do like to discuss those a variety of things related to those issues, so I think it's better for everyone that we have that private space.

Invites issued to those who've asked for them as well. :)

Because not everyone wants to talk about that stuff. I remember when The Volcanic Asteroid was around, I stayed out of the political sections because I don't like politics and had no interest in discussing them. So it would depend on if anyone would really want to talk about things like that, and it just probably wouldn't work out because we all have so many different opinions and we'd just clash over it. I know on the Chamber of Secrets forums, there were sections devoted to politics and religion where certain things had separate threads such as a Christianity thread, a Muslim thread, and an Atheism thread. If it was structured in that way, then I'd be all for it, but I still feel it wouldn't work out.

But if you want to talk about that stuff, why not create a social group dedicated to it and see if people would join?

You're 16. Is that above or below age of consent in your territory?

The age of consent in Belgium is 16, as specified by Article 372 of the Criminal Code (Code pénal/Strafwetboek), which reads:

"Any indecent assault committed without violence or threat on the person or with the assistance of the person of a child of either sex, aged less than sixteen, shall be punished by imprisonment (of five years to ten years).

So Penny, is it just for people over the age of 18, or is it for people over the age of consent?

Hey dude - just a heads-up, there is conversation about adult fanfic in the group, and it's a space for discussion of adult/NSFW topics for hetero and non-hetero board members.

I've noted that you have posted in the past about being a bit squicked by the idea of Apritello and stuff - you don't have to be a shipper to join and you don't even have to post in those threads if it ain't your thang, but if you can't handle those kinds of conversations, it may not be the place for you.

No religious discussion is allowed in the AD section - I've noted from some of your past posts that you seem to be religious, so if frank discussion of adult sexuality bothers you/goes against your beliefs, it's not gonna be a good fit for you. I don't want any furry-bashing, gay-bashing, shipper-bashing or slutshaming in the group - it's a chill, respectful place where people can just have a few cyber-drinks and let it all hang out.

Have a think about it and if you still want in, let me know - just want to give you an idea of what you're walking into as I don't want you being offended/mentally scarred. :lol:

Just a bump to let folks know that we have conversations about fanfic with mature ratings (violence/character death/adult content) in the AD section as well; the general forums aren't always the best place to discuss certain tropes or pairings so if you're over 18 and you'd like an invite so you can join in on this particular topic, PM me (or post here). :tcool:

I think a sub forum would be fine for those who want it. I'm not bothered by the talk as I've heard stuff like that all of my life in high school and in college. Heck, I laughed when I read some of the posts, but if people want a sub forum of that, I say go for it. And if you don't want to talk about that stuff, then you don't have to visit said forum. It's for those who want to view it.

True, Shell. No one is forced to go to certain forum, I agree.
