Signal Boosting a Couple of Stories · 8:00pm Mar 5th, 2016

Hello, everyone. I'd like to recommend a couple of stories for you all to read whenever you get a chance. I know I quite enjoyed them, so maybe you'll have some fun reading them, as well. :twilightsmile:

I can only agree. Though I'm keeping some statements there for the next Doctor Who troll thread.

My biggest gripe with that group has always been that trolling is allowed and has no repercussions...

All I can say is: "Oy vey..."

The exchange at the end of this thread might be useful for later reference...

That's always a shame. I feel like I've seen groups like that before, too, but don't really remember any more.

I'd be tempted to try and start up my own group for people randomly talking about things, only with moderation, but starting up a new group, getting enough people there, getting enough admins, and getting it not to just die is such a pain, and I've got a million other groups to look after, anyways.

I intend to pop back in the Insane Creators Guild eventually when I feel up to it , though. This was intended more as a break than totally leaving, though it's kinda nice not having all those threads cluttering up things.

I suppose what I'd really like would be a group somewhere in between TICG and TWG...

You reminded me of a group that I believe used to be kinda like that for a while a couple years ago, before certain events transpired that caused it to pretty much just stop... :pinkiesad2:

Being an admin in the group makes it trickier, too, since you'd probably need to ask somepony to give you back rights afterwards, whereas being a contributor isn't really that meaningful, generally.

I'm probably just going to glance back there occasionally, and rejoin when things seem a little saner, or at least I'm feeling like I can cope with it better. A million variations on the same subject title doesn't look promising, though.

I suppose what I'd really like would be a group somewhere in between TICG and TWG...

Yeah, I cannot blame you in the least. As for the main reason I haven't taken a break from that group myself, let's just say this song more or less sums it up:

:twilightsheepish:

Just to mention, I'm taking a bit of a break from the Insane Creators group at the moment, so if any flame wars, etc... break out, I won't notice.

Just need a break from spam and memes for a bit...

Of course I'm over here. You do remember that I'm admin in a lot of groups, right?

Well, me and gameexpert are both admins in several groups, and friends.

And, you know, if I see a bunch of trolling and flamewars going on, and an admin I trust is online, I will, in fact, point them towards threads that need to be dealt with. And you were trolling, and you were making personal attacks. You weren't exactly the only one. But making a thread trolling an admin right after they lock a thread you were participating in isn't exactly the sort of things admins aren't going to generally overlook.

If I'd have been an admin there, several threads would've been locked a fair amount earlier. (Including that feminism thread. Still not sure why toxic jokes about feminists are allowed in the group.). But I'm not.

This isn't exactly the first time I'm been friends with people on both sides of something, either...

Edit: Also, I cannot thank you enough for introducing me to that comic. :rainbowlaugh:

No problem!

I'd totally forgotten about Dinosaur Comics, and then was reminded of it earlier today and started going back through them. And that was such a good one...

I'm reminded of a scene in the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl on it, actually. And this shouldn't actually be surprising, because somehow the two turn out to be written by the same person, amazingly enough...

--Sweetie Belle

Well, main thing about adminning a bunch of groups is that in a lot of them nothing's going on, and I don't really have to do anything unless something starts going on. The times I start missing threads I should have locked are usually because I'm busy outside of fimfiction at the time.

Of course, if I was making a bunch of changes and trying to get groups moving in all the groups I run, that'd be different, but I don't do that often, partially for that reason.

I actually feel like in a certain sense, it'd be easier if I had admin rights, 'cause I wouldn't have to look so much to remind myself if I'm supposed to be adminning a thread or not. :scootangel:

Of course, I might end up locking things earlier than they usually get locked...

--Sweetie Belle

2538524
I'd give you those rights in a heartbeat if you really want them, but I'm afraid you'd just get even more overwhelmed than you already are with your ever-growing list of groups you help maintain... :twilightoops:

Edit: Also, I cannot thank you enough for introducing me to that comic. :rainbowlaugh:

Er, yeah. Could really use to borrow your lockhammer on this thread.

--Sweetie Belle

2538523
No problem. I get very frustrated at not having admin rights in that group sometimes. I nearly posted this comment as a PSA.

Think Alsvid's already back at it again...

*Pokes back* - Much obliged.

*Poke* -> Thread.

Okay. Well, it's still just really disheartening to see that, whenever I try to promote something in either the guild or the Bureau, I always get trampled and torn to pieces. It's part of the reason I don't finish anything. It hurts my moral, so I just try to find something else to get it back up again.

2527415
Uh, you didn't need to delete the thread, the original post was perfectly fine. :applejackunsure:

While my reminder was mostly directed at the other user, I chose to reply to your second comment because, although it might be the way you sincerely feel, I believe that actually saying you don't care about someone's opinion is also kinda rude...

xStellar_Bubbles drew this adorable Minuette for me as part of their 100 followers special. Thanks!

I should probably update my "Favorite" story modules above someday...

I don't think I've ever managed those since I first set them up... :twilightsheepish:
