Concerning Language At Besttechie


Recommended Posts

Good Evening everyone!

Well, its been quite a few days lately eh...;)

This has been quite stressful for all of us, we all know of what I speak of here, and especially stressful for me, since it was my suicide that started this whole affair.

I still stand behind my reasons, that it was in the members of Tech Support boards best interests to know what was happening, and they didn't deserve the surprise they were about to recieve. Anyway, thats over with now and we have a bunch of new members that we are very happy to have here!!

With that tho, there is something I wish to point out to all of the Besttechie community, and thats language.

Since this has been special circumstances recently, we have let some of the language get by, but that's not going to be the norm here. This is a Family board (not like G4 said they are...), and we do not want off-color language used in the forums.

There are times when you can use the standard **, or !! to offset some of the lighter language that is used in every day conversation, this will be acceptable but don't overdo it either.

The Comedy Club has a little bit looser rules concerning language and content in general, but offensive material is not acceptable anytime.

Thanks to everyone for being on their best behavior these days, and lets continue to make this forum the BEST place in the Net!

Thanks for readdressing this Chappy.  This is something everyone needs to be sure they understand.

Hear, hear! Bad language just reflects immaturity and it's not needed to make a point.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Well put!

I totally agree!

You're Right Chappy...it is best bet to remain responsible, reasonable, and professional (for some of us...lol). Plus it makes for a less stressed environment, and if there are any conflicts and disagreements that arise, they can be solved very quickly without the use of valgurities and misconceptions.

Thanks for the reminders, Chappy.  I'm very happy to be here.  This is a place that I would let my 11 year old surf to.

Yes, indeed!  Let's get back to normal:-)

Just my thoughts based upon recent events. Was I surprised when I logged in on G4 after being gone for a while. One of my friends who came to visit last Saturday had paid a visit to G4 upon my recommendation to find a source of help in their computer adventures. I do not know who was embarrassed the most her and her husband or myself. I could not believe the change that had occurred in the language at G4 when she told me about it and was even more unsettling when seen for myself. Even though I am moving primarily to Besttechie, I still plan to visit the foul mouths in order to keep in touch with some of the civil friends still there. I hate to say, but there is even a time when there needs to be a mussel on language.

Jeff could always setup a language filter. That way there is no slips.

Hi TT

Yes, we do have a Language filter in the board software, but we feel that it shouldn't be needed, our members are mature enough to not need policing like that.

Even our younger members are so mature, that they completely agree with, and abide by our Language policy, unwritten as it is even...

The occasional slip is to be expected, and we'll address those as they arise. If a member see's something that they feel should be edited, contact Jeff, myself, or one of the other Mods, and we'll look after it if it needs to be looked after.

Really tho, I don't think we'll have a problem here like "other" places do. We have a polite, considerate community, with Mods who are Understanding and Approachable, and that makes all the difference.

how do you define what is unacceptable lnguage

for instance here in the south pacific

we use words which is acceptable in our area of the world .

but is not acceptable.in other places

and i might i saythe word bugger is in the australin and new zealand dictionary

so if bugger is offensive to some what about the other half .

for me it isnt a problem

but i see are we going to see languige guides

so we can see if we use the right or the wrong ones .

i agree g4 was an example of the how bad it was

language wise

and i saw a post were this young girl

used all the phrases

no acceptable to the public

and at the end of the post she was only 13

so times have changed

these are my thoughts

I'm glad I don't have to read foul language here.  Last night "over there" it got way out of hand.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Yeah, I did some lurking over there, didn't log-in. I quit that forum yesterday. I can't believe what is now permitted over there. They've completely lost their collective minds.

This forum is a place where one can post in peace without getting flamed by trolls. :D

Nothing like a bunch of potty mothed keyboard users to take down a board.

And if anyone thinks it takes "skill" to post porn you need to reread the definition of skill.

I got to wonder about the thought process used to decide that posting pornography and cuss word makes a better site.

Agreed. It makes little sense to me to allow "no holds barred language and porn" at a site frequented by kids for the most part. The management over there has lost it. :blink:

Especially a site aimed at 12-13 year old gamers. Those execs are smokin' again.
