What Do You Want Yahooka To Be

Totally open question to be answered as you see fit but please refrain from ban/unban so and so comments and general off topic shenanigans, just this once eh.

I'll start:

I want Yahooka to be a resource and debating site for open minded individuals involved with primarily the marijuana counter culture.


I want Yahooka to be a place where we can all express our opinions without fear of being judged for them.

I want Yahooka to be somewhere where I can be be wrong and learn new things without being called an idiot for it.

I want Yahooka to ultimately be a self serving and self financed co-operative with servers in a friendly nation.

ADDITIONAL IDEAS POSTED BY USERS BELOW:

1. Image Gallery - We have been trying for this for awhile and though software ideas etc have been floated a wall was reached awhile back, a definate possibility and hope.

Note for mods and Admin - Mod Forum Reference

2.

That pretty well sums up what I think, although a personal gallery like other sites have would be cool.

It's so hard to answer that question.

We have so many young people here and many of them have severe problems at home or with themselves. Anger can seem rampant at times.

I want Yahooka to be home. I want it to be for anyone needing answers on any of the expertise we have. I want it to be a place for debate and for making friends.

I would like to see it moderated with understanding. I delete posts without comment and chastise those that are outrageous.

Yahooka is perfect.

Open to all (open registration). The hardcore posters WILL have alternate screenname, keeping them out is FUTILE. Closed registration is allowing NO freedom for the forums to grow.

Returning FFA to it's true namesake, that is, free. Without goatse how can FFA be free? I just can't stand how at many other forum sites people are so polite that it all seems fake. Granted though the insulting-to-some type of FFA threads and posts do tend to leak into the more goal-oriented forums but the moderators of that forum usually take care of that pretty quickly, which is good we should have respect for the other forums like GTGH and Guidance and Support. I think though the worst thing is when goatse and the like gets moderated out of FFA, or people are banned for posting nazi pictures...

Sureshot I respect that you say you want to work with people, rather than against them, and in that notion, more of an effort to send a PM to a member and giving more written notices than actual banning.

^ More written notices we tried, but ultimately you generally get a PM returned telling you to go fuck yourselves.

3 strikes and your out. That's the way of it. And we really do try and send warnings and communicate with the banned member, to which end banned members now STILL have access to their PMs. A change I made fairly recently.

Great post Gov.

Goatse and images such as this or referring to people as Nazis will never be acceptable, they are both ridiculous and have no place in discussion, even FFA discussion.

hey SS, i was wondering about that picture that i sometimes post of those two dooders on the rocks.


i find that picture hilarious, even more so if someone is offended by it, because really, its not offensive. i think the only people that would find that offensive are homophobes, and i really dont have a problem with "offending" a homophobe, or at the very least, make them feel insecure in their sexuality.


but thats not even the reason i occasionally post that pic. i post it for the most part in appropriate threads at appropriate times. i certainly understand if the thread starter asks a mod to delete it and they do...


but i posted it a week or so ago and apparently a mod found it "offensive" enough to delete. can you let me know where you stand on that pic i post at appropriate times, in order to get a laugh?

I come here two read discussion, sometimes intelligent, sometimes not so much. I read the FFA for information and laughs.

I try not to let any of the stupid antics here get to me ,after all it is an internet forum. That's not to say it couldn't be improved, good to see your in your anual "lets fix up the place" mood Sureshot.

FFA should be uncensored. Goatse, tubgirl, nazi accusations etc are indeed ridiculous and have no place in a discussion, but FFA isn't about discussions. It should be a Free For All.

From what I've observed, visible modding such as bans and post edits lead to more shit flying around than if you just left flame threads to die their natural deaths. As long as they stay in FFA, and as long as FFA is invisible to non-members, what's problem?

On a screen, on a computer, in my room.

With an off switch, if I deem that what I see is objectionable, I can turn it off and walk away.

Nothing on the net should be so offensive that it spurs you to do anything more than flip that switch and go away.

YOU have the ultimate power, people! The power to turn it off, the power to walk away, the power to choose.

That said, I've often wondered why is it that FFA is not visible to unregistered users. We want to be a slice of the marijuana community that shows the world that we're not all pot smoking bums with twisted senses of humor, well thats true enough, however some of us are. We lose just a tiny bit of our soul when we try to portray all of us as law abiding good people who happen to smoke pot when we try and sweep our freaks under the rug. Not one of us here doesn't have some crazy uncle running loose in the family that no one really talks about but everyone knows hes there in the real world.

We strive in the real world to make the 'tards feel like they're not mutants and freaks, why can't we embrace our mutants and freaks and show them they are loved too.

It's an old battle cry, but one I really think should be heard, keep the peace.

Free FFA.

Thank you, and good night!

Yeah, I'm with you. I love the way YaHooka isn't as straight-laced as many other weed forums, but I could do without the hostility. I feel at home when I come here, but I get tired of being cast as power-mad and nazi-like because I'm a moderator. That shit was tired a long time ago.

I agree with alot of the members about free speech, too. However, most of the arguments are about saying things (through words or images) that contribute nothing and make this place look bad. I welcome criticism, but, again, I think it can be done without all the vitriol.

Keep YaHooka Wild. That would be my slogan. I just would rather have it be clever and wild than stupid and wild, if you take my meaning.

I want the mods to go out of their way, like they should be repaying Yahooka for having them as their mods. They have a responsibility to set the tone for this entire website. They and they alone have the authority mold Yahooka into what they think it should be. I want them to give 100%, or at least a good 85-90% (like Ellis can usually pull) of themselves into their posts and theads. I think this site could be insanely popular (among 420 culture). The mods could be known for starting something great...


if they gave more than 2 shits doing some real work.

This isn't an entirely bad idea. It can't be COMPLETELY free, of course. No threats to the president, offers or solicitations for drugs, etc. However, if it would keep the rest of the site on track, I'd be willing to give it a try. I see no reason why FFA can't be our immaturity pressure valve, if it keeps the nonsense out of the other forums, including the Feedback Forum.

As, from what i can gather, this would be the equivalent of giving the dog its bone, by letting the ffa crowd flame and fight all they want, and anyone not wanting to view/become involved in that simply has the choice to ignore it. Give it its own little disclaimer for example.
It just seems to me that banning one person forms a chain event, merely resulting in todays events, more arguing and yet more bannings.

Yahooka is totally fucking unique, without things like FFA yahooka woudlnt be any different from www.icmag.com or many other forums, this unique quality is why i love yahooka so much.

Obviously these plans would need finalising, and certain guidelines laid down, but please consider it as it seems it would be the soloution to many problems, and i'd be more than willing to offer any input needed.

Edit: Of course, im not referring to the events in the feedback forum and mellow stoners, as can sympathise with that.
