  • I wish someone would lock that praise and worship thread.

    or take it far away to a religious forum.

    we have a 'post your rig thread' and a 'post your pedalboard' thread.

    what next? 'post your white power rig'


    While I would rather have both threads open, to be 'fair', both should be closed, not matter how stupid it is.
    Love,

    • (and here, I thought the Nazis were aetheists)


      most were roman catholic yet where they differed was where the aryan pseudo-science came in.Hitler has been linked to darwin but he actually ordered darwin's works burned as "the true german race could never have come from lower primates." Many had thier own pseudo religious beliefs about the origin of their race and it was drenched if not sumbmerged in supernatural belief

      I would love to ad my rig to an atheist + agnostics + free thinkers rig thread if one were to "manifest itself"

      • agree with your sentiment there


        thanks, but I know for a fact there are many here that would totally disagree....and that's exactly why I wouldn't want to moderate here.

          • what wasn't me?

            mate, I didn't even put myself up to be a mod here....


            Im just saying you share our views, theres plenty threads that should of been closed. Unfortunately alot of threads suffer because people think "hey that threads been around forever, let me see if this works!"

            I personally dont think a CO-Mod would help at all. This discussion of a CO mod has only made things worst, ya know I remember the Circus having one ringleader not 2 ever.

                eh, Hitler also said publicly, "We do not want any other god than Germany itself. It is essential to have fanatical faith and hope and love in and for Germany." Fascists come from all belief systems.

                    I dont dispute that they he was going for a cult of personality.Just that i dont think the term atheist could ever apply to a group who did believe thier race had supernatural origins

                    • Just for clarification, I made the P&W board thread.

                      The reason I made it is because Contemporary Christian music is a valid musical genre. I could care less who/what you worship...that's not the point of the thread. It's also not a place for religious discussion. It's simply a place where guys who play in church can post their gear and talk about what works for them in their church or where ever they play gigs.

                      It's the same thing as having a low-fi, alt-country or stoner-rock board thread. People who play in those types of bands have similar goals in the gear that they use.

                      Just because a thread is about pedals used on a board that someone uses in church, doesn't mean the thread should be locked or put into a seperate religious forum.

                      If that's your argument...then HCFX or all of HC should not exist, as threads about Boss pedals should be restricted to the Boss forum, threads about Fender guitars should be restricted to the Fender forum, etc etc etc.

                      Not being religious is one thing....but when you start wanting to get rid of threads because the topic clashes with your own beliefs....that's something completly different....just like locking the recent thread about vilifing whatever.

                      The problem with that thread is that some took it as a parody thread. People are bitching about parody threads....and it got locked. It's unfortunate because it was a parody of a P&W thread....so now everyone thinks that some dude who plays Christian music went and told the teacher and now everyone is pissed off.

                      Guess what people....grow up. Be a man....and when **************** gets deleted/locked, deal with it. If you don't like it.....go somewhere else. You guys need to learn that not everyone is going to share your same beliefs/thoughts/ideas and that sometimes it's OK to agree to disagree.

                      • Well, one could also argue that those who troll the praise and worship thread should be banned. Also, the argument could be made that people who attempt to equate Christians with Neo-Nazis (and here, I thought the Nazis were aetheists) should be banned. It's all a slippery slope. The Praise and Worship thread isn't hurting anyone. Veil's Satanic Death Metal thread wasn't hurting anybody. Why don't we leave well enough alone?

                            I disagree. Moderation is a thankless job, almost all the time. This is an open registration forum, which means there isn't any up-front filter on content. It is also, however, intended to be an environment conducive to on-topic discussion. The beauty of the effects forum is that we have a healthy level of off-topic discussion as well, which I think is important for the sake of community-building. Since I've been here, it's been a good place to just chill. Lately, I've taken to posting less all around HC because of what I perceive as a rising environment of hostility and segregation (clique-ism, I guess) that makes it more difficult for a few different types of people to post:

                            1. Newcomers

                            2. Long-time lurkers who only occasionally post

                            3. Long-time members who have become primarily lurkers.

                            If the community is to continue in a positive direction, we have to be open (not hostile) to growth, which means that we have to be patient with new members and the endless, circular questions that result. I.e., not getting frustrated or always trying to take the piss out of threads talking about pedals. That doesn't mean offering the community and its standards up for consumption - a gentle reminder to use the search button is never a bad thing, though I think it lends itself to a dogpile-like atmosphere where one or two people get a bit rude with the newbie and then everyone jumps on board. It's kind of understandable, if unfortunate and base, because everyone wants a venue to express frustrations. But newcomers require a special kind of patience that I think we would all do well to adopt. A good community is a welcoming community, though I emphasize again that we don't have to abandon our traditions and standards in order to keep an influx of new, positive contributors from feeling unwelcome.

                            As to the lurkers, well, nothing is going to change the fast pace of discussion. However, perhaps part of what drives them to lurk is a feeling that not only is discussion moving quickly, but real discussion can sometimes be subordinated to off-topic discussion and self-referential and obnoxious navel-gazing. I'm talking about the kind of parody thread chains that make me cringe when I see them. It's not something for which I feel people ought to be punished, but as part of setting a standard for discussion and the atmosphere of the community I think we would be well served by thinking about a few things before posting parody threads. First, is it funny? Second, is it appropriate? And third, is it copy-cat nonsense? If it isn't funny, don't post it; if it isn't appropriate, don't post it; if it's just jumping on a bandwagon, don't post it. Perhaps most importantly, though, we need to remember that with the volume of posts that the forum receives anyway, we should be especially careful about knowingly degrading the signal-to-noise ratio of the forums.

                            I don't mean to sound condescending, but we attract a membership in accordance with the standards and practices of our community. If a prospective new member comes to visit and sees a combination of needlessly hateful or insulting threads and a big sea of complaints/parodies/etc., it represents us as a particular kind of place which I think doesn't actually show how great the forum can be. I've been happy to be a member here, and I still am, but I wish that we could have just a bit of introspection before posting some of the less useful things. I'm as guilty as any of you - I've posted one parody thread in the past, and it probably wasn't funny or appropriate, and it probably just made the forums worse for my having posted it. But we move forward, not backwards, so let's think about how we can make it a better place.

                            I think that's an admirable goal, whether or not further moderation is put in place. A community is constituted of its members. We make this house that we live in. It's up to us to make it a nice place to be. As far as moderation goes, I tend to favor light-touch public moderation with open communication through PMs to let people know if what they're doing isn't what we want going on.

                              Please re-read what I wrote. I completly agree. I'm not arguing that. I was just saying it's unfortunate because it was a valid thread. I also think that there was a little bit of parody behind it. Which is cool in my book (I love parody threads) but some people around here don't. Because of that....and because it seems like the powers that be want to stop the parody threads it got locked.

                              Now what sucks about the whole situation is some are taking it as a "Hey....the dudes in the Christian music thread told Phil about it" and I highly doubt that's the case. Some are tired of parody threads....and it was reported based on that.

                              It's really sad. HCFX forumites are turning on eachother like the HCFX & TGP rivalry.

                              Can't we just all get along?
