Wait...the gig isn't paid?

 

I withdraw my application!

 

Well, did Stalin get paid?

 

I guess he did.

Maybe if we get rid of some of the weirdos the forum will attract more female users?

 

Who like? There are no creepy weirdos here, that I know of. There have been a couple over the years, come and gone. 

 

I'd say dullness is a bigger factor.

Wasn't there a Bronie here for a while?

I was just kidding, I don't think anyone here would act creepily if a female user visited the forum. Then again, as far as I know, female JWFanners are as rare as snow during summer.

We've had very active female members here in the past, even in the presence of a couple of creep members. What I'd call JWFan's best years.

Well, there's several posters here who haven't subscribed to a gender yet.

I miss Chaac. 

@Chen G., you mean?

 

<checks own loins; checks forum profile> nope, definitely male! </checks own loins; checks forum profile>

Outside of the usual suspects getting riled up over being “oppressed,” I really don’t think much will change. 

 

I agree with Koray.

Me too. There was a good batch of active JWFanners then.

If anybody is in touch with any former members, you could reach out and let them know about the new rules, which might tempt them to come back

 

In general though, I suspect the majority of people who leave is due to a diminishing interest in film music (or at least discussing it) more than anything else

Stefan called me one of the boring ones once. It hurt my feelings, I cried.

We have posters who were bred with West African frogs. 

 

Yeah, we know about Drax.

Do we have to sign an " I agree to these rules" notice?

Will there be a test?

Huh, I always picture Jay as a middle-aged Dustin Hoffman.

Ralph Fiennes as JAY.

From " M" to " J".😝😜

I don't know. I've long felt this one is one of the most well-moderated genre forums on the web.  So except for banning politics, which I agree with, I pretty much like how things are, disagreeable members and their eccentricities included. I like that the moderation is light, I like the movie quotes, the salty posts, and don't mind when threads occasionally get derailed. I want this place to stay more Deep Space Nine than Discovery.

 

Don't mind me though. I hate change.

I nominate Nick as new moderator.😁

I wouldn't moderate any forum that would have me as a moderator.

Well, when the majority of  topics discussed are about expanding scores that were already expanded.....😒

Jason just started a topic on FSM MESSAGE BOARD:

" What do FSMers think of the new rules over at JWFAN.com?"

 

😅😛

Yes - the ones prohibiting split infinitives and Oxford commas are really going to spruce this place up.


I will die before I give up the Oxford comma!

I mean, I don't think the rules specifically forbid anyone from quietly discussing personal COVID-19 matters. Just the ones where things can easily spiral out of control, really.

(Also, I'm sure you could just easily message the peeps you care most about.)

I was initially a bit unsure about the 'no politics' rule, but after venturing into a few threads that were in that direction, and finding that I disagreed with the odd view (in one case to an extent that made me privately very angry), it properly put into context for me why this place should be about creative discussion, and nothing else.

I lobbied hard for a word count limit.

As usual, my concerns were ignored.😒😞

 

And get rid of all the extensive analyses/interviews/anecdotes? Aside from the pleasure of reading them, it also demonstrates this forum software can handle just about everything we throw at it. The number of times I've copied a link or URL and it magically changes to a widget... brilliant!
