Is It Time To Close The Gates?

This site is my favourite site ever. I want whats best for it, and feel free to totally disregard my whims, but I think that there should be no more new sharenators, unless an already existing users send a messgae to Paul or Darius requesting for special permission for a non registered user to be let in, with the promise of no bs (The already existing sharenators will be dubbed in the post "Prime Users", and the new ones will be dubbed "Secondary Users"). Or, and I'm not even sure if this is possible, we could let new users register freely, but have an option that allows Prime Users to block or unblock ever even seeing Secondary User's posts, and comments, and Secondary Users would not be able to uprate or downrate Primary Users posts. If this gets implicated. then we would just ban all the Prime User trolls out there, and they couldn't come back!

These are just my thoughts, and I hope they can be done.

P.S. Stop with all the womans right jokes (yah, that includes the kitchen ones also)! My mother is a volunteer legal support worker that helps women who have been beaten and abused by their husbands, and she literally comes home in tears every night because it is so stressful. This is her primary job, and she only gets paid through donations by other sources, not by the women themselves.

    Dude, first rule of trolling, if you get upset, the troll wins. Don't take anything seriously, just laugh.

    This is beta. I would rather have all of the trolls attacking now, so the defense is in place for the release of the actual website. Those trolls are actually improving the system in the long run.

    dude if you start an argument with a troll that means that they win that is their only purpose is to get a reaction out of you if you take that purpose away, trolls will eventually leave. we could flag potential trolls with a noticeable mark that would show up on comments but is also hidden to the flagged individual. and just ignore him and if he is indeed a troll his anger toward people will have no outlet and he will have to go troll somewhere else
    and if the post or comment contains graphic, threatening, or otherwise harmful content against 1 or more sharenator members we should be able to ban the user

    To be honest, it's the minority ruining it for the majority. You can't really prevent new people joining as it is a bit harsh, and I like a lot of other people don't know anyone else signed on here, so people like me wouldn't be able to join.
    I think the best thing we can hope for now, is that this new report system works, because if this carries on I'm following MeinFTW and Dannyl out the door because I'm getting really fed up with the bull crap going on.

    I couldn't have said it better. When we know what problems are facing Sharenator, we can work on improving the system.

    Now that I think about it, it's kind of strange that we were able to survive without moderators helping us for so long. It's about time to get some help. The mod features are hard to implement and may take some time, but we'll finally have them.

    I just hope that with the help of some Sharenators, we will be able to keep the doors open for cool people and closed for people who come here to spoil things.

    I have been lurking for a couple of weeks now, and I have finally decided to register. So forgive me if I do not know much about the problems in this site. But you have to keep in mind that every site has trouble makers and problems. It wouldnt be the internet then now would it?
    One of the problems I see with your suggestion about dubbing people "Prime User" and 'Secondary User" is that, (And people might deny this but its human nature) some of the "Prime Users" will deem themselves more better than the "Secondary Users" and of course ego's will flare up. Which will cause more problems such as flaming and the like.

    not bad ideas at all, but i doubt they will be implemented because it would require such a massive overhaul to the site to the point where people would no longer recognize it for what it used to be.

    Just like Paul said, changes are coming. Since June 08 this site has had a sort of free reign in terms of what is posted as well as conduct and trolling, but since this site has grown tremendously in the past 2 years, changes are needed in order to make sure this site evolves in a positive way.

    Paul and I have been talking, and soon the Terms of Service for what is allowed and what isn't allowed, and the consequences of violating it, will be posted. And just like Paul said, mod features are already here. All we can do until these new things come into effect is to just hang tough.

    I know i'm a bit late but if the site couldn't be accessed by anyone new then that's contradicting the name: SHAREnator this site is for sharing with everyone.
