External websites: the rules

 Jazza

Founder Perth, WA Posts: 6,678 Joined: Oct 2011 I want to make it very clear what my (so BAU's) stance is on external / third party websites and communities. As much as I want to be friendly and polite to other groups, I have to draw the line somewhere.   

do not link to brony Facebook groups and pages do not link to private Facebook events (private = group-only) do not advertise other brony forums fo rums and groups

There are some exceptions to these rules so please query me directly if you want to check if  you're allowed to post it. Event organisers that use Facebook groups are encouraged to post forum calendar events and threads for their events, but please do not link to the event itself (unless it's public, see the rules above).

Thank you for understanding. Caspar is my OC (This post was last modified: Today 02:08 PM by Jazza Jazza..) Today, 01:32 PM DecemberDoom,, Qaezxen like this post DecemberDoom Rate User [41] Email Message Website Find Report

I should've been more specific. I'm mostly talking about Australian brony groups, however it also applies to any third party community. It's intended to stop people taking other people away from our community. If in doubt, you should contact me directly. Chances are I'll approve of it, but there are some instances when I won't.

The overall thing I'm trying to get across here is to t o stop people from saying "Hey guys, join this community!". Caspar is my OC (This post was last modified: Today 01:58 PM by Jazza Jazza..) Today, 01:51 PM Rate User [41] Email Message Website Find

Christmas Riot 

Earth pony Toowong, QLD Posts: 2,334 Joined: Jul 2012 Dude this is kinda ridiculous, if there is a cool event or what not being put on by another group why cant we go hey check this out we should go and have fun. Its not driving people away or making them choose its being all inclusive, and then to try and say its good for the community is asinine. "I agree, but we have to do what we can to encourage people people not to join others. It's less about that and more about people blatantly advertising." This right here is the problem for some reason you always have this preconceived notion that its us vs them, its not. That link you posted wasn't blatantly advertising as much as trying to show off a good time. And why must we be hay you should come here and only here.... seriously buck that. The community is not going to die just because people visit other sites every now and then. So yea my opinion which Im sure will be ignored as per usual, but this seems like a heavy case of god admining and is bringing up flashbacks of teh whole "Your" community thing. People aren't forced to stay here and the more rules like this you enforce, the more you may drive people away.

Edit: Also once again Im surprised to see mods not knowing about these rule changes, or any notion that they were discussed before hand (This post was last modified: Today 02:36 PM by Christmas Riot.

I haven't been running successful communities for years? This is how most other communities operate, it's how BAU has been operating since da y one pretty much (I've had to privately request people to remove advertisements) advertisements) and now I'm just putting out here in the open. Would you like me to be more strict than I am? I could easily be x100 more stricter and impose numerous more rules to restrict everyone. Yet I am not. The mere fact that I'm allowing everyone to discuss and oppose rules shouldn't be taken for granted.

I'm quite sick of requesting other people to take down links and the like, so I'm saving myself  a lot of time and effort doing it in future.

Facebook groups are the number one competitor to this community. I have worked very hard from day one to make BAU what it is, even with a lot of criticism from Facebook groups. It is true that I have an intense disliking for Facebook groups, groups, however I believe my actions to ban them are not related.

So your saying if a facebook group is holding an event, we can point it out, we just have to take all teh details, recreate them and then start a new event and yada yada yada work..... that's a lot of busy work that can be shortened with one link, one link that people are still getting from this site.

Point 2. Agree to disagree

Point 3. Running a community is different to owning a community, have you been successful at running it? Yes, but that doesnt mean you own it. Similarly saying that its now open for discussion is kind of a lie, yes we can discus the rule changes but nothing is going change, the rules are still going to be their t heir so really discussing them is pointless, especially whenever whenever you bite anyone's head off who disagrees. I have been on other sites, they dont operate this way, I have never seen a forum impose rules like these, nor have I seen one so desperate not to let members go, its off putting and thats why most forums dont do it .

Yes, that is exactly what I'm saying. If an organiser can't spend the 30 seconds or so to create an event here, then they don't deserve to organise an event.

A) I do own BAU.

Donator Rarity's biggest fan!, WA Posts: 1,729 Joined: Oct 2011 You're kind of pressing this a bit too far Jazza. I mean yes blatant advertising is an issue (one that we dont see on this forum very often) but banning linking to other communities all together? That's kind of taking to too far. Especially when it comes to meetups when you consider most meets are organized in conjunction with the FB groups. There is nothing

wrong with linking the FB photo album or a FB even or even if people are curious as to the people they were hanging out with, the group themselves. No offense but this just seems like you're pressing your personal hate of Facebook onto the the rest of the forum because you don't want the members to associate with the FB groups. Also the biggest issue I see with this is the t he lack of communication with the mods and other staff. You always say that you want the staff to have input and that you want them to be included in decisions. Yet you did this out of the blue, no staff discussion in meetings and not even a thread discussing it in the staff forums, nothing. I honestly think you should have come to a consensus with the rest (or rather the majority) majorit y) of the staff before making any

major changes to the rules. Today, 02:54 PM black_storm_clouds,, Cameron:D black_storm_clouds Cameron:D,, Christmas Riot, Riot, Christmaslightsiesta Christmaslightsiesta,, Komrazza Komrazza,, MissyGoldilox,, ouchjars like this post MissyGoldilox Rate User [28] Message Find Report

Ok back to point 1 what if your not the one whos actually organizing it, you heard of it from the facebook group and want more people to come, you actually don't know all the details  just have the facebook facebook link. By creating the event event again through here here you may be giving giving people the wrong details or misleading them into thinking its something it isnt..... hell from what you wrote im not even sure you would be allowed to even do that.

The other point you own the site yes, you run the site yes, you don't own the community, they aren't things that can be owned by one person, its a collective. Thats why when I see you make these decisions for the community, without discussing it with the community I cant help but feel your taking it a step to far. Im not the only one here who thinks some of these rules are ridiculous and it wouldn't have come as such a shock if you had discussed it with people first.

Based on that the only point I can see is that you only want mods that agree with you and let you have all the power. Seriously I'm confused, what point? Is it that you don't trust mods to see what is best for the community? That you don't want the mods to discuss some things because you feel to strongly about t hem personally? That you think your mods don't like you and that they will disagree with you because they think you are doing it for personal reasons? Seriously, if it was what was best for the site then it would have been a conclusion reached by majority of the staff, not just one person. You should have brought it to us first and got our say on it and if it was truly what is best for the site then we would have agreed with you. My big bone to pick with this is not the rule itself but the way you went about implementing it.

Its not about the new restrictions anymore. Its about how you're dealing with implementing change and informing the mod team. Get your shit sorted. I know you're trying to balance access with control, but you're making serious missteps. Were only bringing this up because we care about the site, if we didn't we wouldn't be here. Its just changes and acting like this could have the opposite effect of what you may be intending. Today, 03:08 PM ouchjars likes this post Rate User [39] Email Message Website Find Report

Edit- seriously, I enjoy this forum and ain't going anywhere, but a few times you've erred. This time you've more/less shown us why that may be. You need a wakeup call on how you handle things. This is your motherfucking wakeup call. (This post was last modified: Today 03:13 PM by Paingod556 Paingod556..)

Then why did you do it.... Why I do a lot of things here - I believe it's the ri ght course of action for the community, even at the cost of the disagreement of the community. I'm not sure if you guys know - a lot of people hate me. It seems s eems that a lot more people now do as well. Caspar is my OC (This post was last modified: Today 03:18 PM by Jazza Jazza..)

Earth pony Solaris VIII, WA Posts: 2,259 Joined: Oct 2011 So you expected cries of totalitarianism, a confused mod team and your integrity to t o be questioned, and still green lit it. This is why you discuss with those with opposing views first and explain reasons. And not 'because I run this and we're doing it anyway'. Like in the past. Its disingenuous and stupid.

That's petty, rude, and selfish. Don't pretend that this community hates you because it isn't true. Tacosss.

Again, if it what was right for the community the the mods would have agreed with you. You may own the joint but that doesn't mean you always know whats best for it.

Posts: 6,678 Joined: Oct 2011 Thanks everyone for your input. It's slowly sinking in that I need to re -adjust how I run this community. From this day onwards we'll be forming a new system of government. We'll have an elected president, a board of directors and more. Who's up for term 1 of presidency? Someone else else more qualified than me, I'm sure. As childish as it sounds, it sounds like it could work a lot better. One person making a single bad decision has too many ramifications and causes too much controversy. Oh oh oh, the president could blame his or her bad decision on the people below him! I'm liking this a lot... Edit: At least one good thing came out of this - Koroshi slipped up. I was waiting until I could ban him. Edit(2): I'm going to go back to work and come back to this in a few hours. I'm hoping a clear head will help resolve all of this. Am I learning from last time? It sounds like it!
