Realize I'm just asking the question, I still reserve the right to make the ultimate decision whatever it may be.

Also remember there are young ones and ladies who visit the site, if we were to allow such things, we'd need to set up some special age verification system or something for that section.

you should have entitled this 'Softcore Porn' not hardcore porn.

Even though I am of tghe mind of open expression and free speech and all that I still don't think true hardcore porn should be allowed on this site - if not for the reason it wasn't allowed on EQnecro.... at least not direct in post pictures... links on the other hand.....

Though if people want links to hardcore porn in the inferno section only.... *shrugs* that would be their choice. I'd much prefer Mags' old Daily Hottie threads to come around here like they did on EQnecro. No true porn, just fashion shoot photos of celebraties in various stages of dress or undress while never revealing any nudity.

But everyone must keep in mind that if just links are allowed for hardcore porn..... what would stop people from posting links to such sites like the gore sites? Sometimes rules can be a good thing, while at times bad and too restricting. Just have to find balance.


And this coming from a hardcore porn enthusiast!

Sorry to be unclear, by porn I mean anything deemed "not work safe" which I believe most have agreed includes even a woman in her bathing suit/underwear etc. Any provocative pictures whatsoever. Something your boss would turn his head and say, "Ahem...whats this here, billy?" After which you would begin to blush.

well normal people would begin to blush.

but another voting option would be better.

Like - 'I don't care. Let them eat cake.'

since not everyone who wants to vote that they don't care avoid Infoerno =)

and thanks for cleaing up 'porn'.

Give me a break.. go try this at EQTraders. One of the most respected (and quoted) EQ fan forums. Period. You post content, period. No personal attacks.

Does that mean you cannot disagree? Are you really telling me that you think "no personal attacks" equates to "The Nazis will not allow any free thought"? *rolls eyes*

It's a board about EQ.

You want to grab ass.. go someplace else. The frigging Internet is full of places to do it..

It's not that I don't like porn. It is that I don't like porn here, nor do I see any need for it here. There are tons and tons of places, even EQ related places, you can go where porn of varying degrees is allowed. There is just no reason it has to be here too.

I am probably going to offend some with what I have to say but I am going to do it anyway.



Umbrillo it depends on what you want this site to be, if you want it to be the premier site on the web for EQ1 necro's then you are going to have to make your moderators loosen the strings a bit and make some concessions while demanding some concessions for moderate behavior in the appropriate places from some of your more rowdy element that have come over here from EQNecro whilst giving them a spot to let their "hair" down. This board until lately has been a low traffic board and with a very small membership which caters to this boards membership and their styles very well as is evidenced by the loyalty of your "old guard". However with the demise of your main competitors board you have a window (one that is quickly vanishing I might add) to make this THE board for EQ1 Necromancers.

While many have found the EQNecro crowd to be offensive, I personally have found the actions of some of your regular denizens equally as offensive. Unfortunately I am one of those silent types I do not post very often despite having been at EQNecro since its inception and thru its many incarnations. The question should be what do you Umbrillo want Necrotalk to be. When you were at EQNecro and did not like the way it was run you asked for changes and ™ The Vision told you "if you don't like the way I run this board you are welcome to go fund and operate your own". Well, my friend you did just that and thru being the lasy man standing you get the last laugh out of that . Now you have to decide what you want your board to be.

My personal opinion is there is a very definite lack of knowledge of the high end game here and that this board caters to the casual player very well.

YMMV

Umbrello,

Permit me to offer my opinion. To wit:

This is your board. This is your house. You, and those you designate, make the rules, and enforce the rules. But in the end, you are responsible. Bearing that in mind, I suggest you be a dictator. A benevolent one if you wish it. But a dictator nonetheless. Don't let precedent or spurious arguments stop you from doing what you think needs to be done.

We are all guests here, enjoying your hospitality. If some do not care for the rules of the house, they may leave. If they do not leave on their own... make them leave. There is no reason to let people who insist that incivility is their right stay among those that insist that civility is their responsibility.

If you take my advice, I have faith that you will not become some sort of arbitrary tyrant. On the contrary, I think Necrotalk will stay the pleasant, informative place I have known it to be.

Personally, I LOVE having a site that I can read at work without looking over my shoulder, to see if it's safe to scroll down and have an offensive picture or signature on my screen. I don't care if there's a larger or more active membership on other necro boards. Necrotalk has matured into a fine board, that doesn't tolerate alot of what other boards seem to promote.

It makes us different, and atm..it may make us a bit unpopular as people who recently came here flock to a board where they openly insult and curse at one an other. I don't think any collection of people who get told "your behavior isn't welcome here, change or get out" are gonna walk away without feeling a bit ticked off. I also know for a fact, that I'm not the only one that really couldn't care any less about how they feel.

As far as long-term members and their behavior here goes, 99% of the time most people are merely informative and personable. There have been times when people have strayed(myself included, heh..I'm a 28 year old guy, ya I type what I feel, and if it needs to be moderated or moved that's fine with me). It's quite isolated, for the most part..and almost civil even if in argument.

As for the porn..it has no place here imo. If I want porn, I'll go google and find me some. If I want to talk about everquest and necromancy..I'll happily come here. I have a hard time finding a common ground with the 2 subjects, and that usually means they're not related in any way, shape of form. Thus, they have no relevence or purpose here, in any way shape or form.

I don't really think posting porn is a problem, myself being a female, im not trolling around looking for it and if someone posts up a porn link im not gonna click on it. How can I get offended, if they said CLICK THIS LINK FOR SEX and I check it out and its something that digusts me? Why click on a link that says *see anal here* while you are at work and then get pissed cause your boss walks in and sees it? Hi retard, how goes it?!

i'm a 20ish girl whom likes porn as much as the next person. But I come here to be with necromancers and to talk about EverQuest and necromancy. If I want to see anything that is not 'work safe' (which doesn't apply seeing as i'm in my own home) I'd go somewhere else for it or pm someone for the link. If people want to share non-worksafe images maybe they just post saying that they have some images and a short description and interested parties can give the poster a personal message asking for the stuff to be emailed.

However, if there were pictures of EQ characters in different states of dress that's different.

I must admit that I find this whole thing to be asinine. I think that too often people's passions blind them to the true reality of what is occuring. I wince when I hear terms like "oppression" and "Nazi" being thrown around in regards to a board about a video game. When I think of these terms, images of the Japanese internment camps, the Holocaust, apartheid, Jim Crow laws, the AIDS epidemic in Africa, and things of that ilk come to my mind. If anyone wants to talk about injustice and needless suffering go hang out at a children's hospital for a week.

This entire debate lacks all perspective and maturity IMO. The fact is that a few people decided that they wanted a confrontation, and that is exactly what they elicited from a few other members of this board. N.B. I think both sides are guilty of this.

Overall my suggestion is to consistently and fairly enforce the rules that you want. Since its inception, this board has reflected your ideal board, and I see little reason for you to change your rules unless you want them to change.

I enjoy seeing more posts on this board, and I hope it continues. However do not change the rules for any reason other than that is what you truly want to do. If your vision has changed, then so be it, but otherwise I would not let any outside pressures sway you.

With that being siad, I truly hope that the people from the other board stick around. I realize that probably won't happen, but I enjoyed their contribution to the board. I am just having a hard time grasping why anyone, and I mean anyone, can get so worked up over these things.

Umbrello I appreciate what you did, and that you continue to host the board after you retired. I find myself agreeing with Warspite (again :P) you lead and we will follow.

No nipples?! What are the baby necromancers to feed from!?

All your thoughts heard...I suppose I was hoping more to prove a point with this poll than help with my decision. This isnt Smuttalk.com, we're not discussing the Smutromancer profession here, although believe me there are plenty of sites where you can learn the wonderful benefits of learning the Smutulation skeelz. Go find them on teh g00gel.

But seriously, now when people complain about not being able to post porn here...please everyone refer them here.

As one of those "dirty lowlifes from eqnecro" Let me offer my two coppers

Personally, I LOVE having a site that I can read at work without looking over my shoulder

I agree. In fact, I run 4 message boards myself and I turn off all pics on them, I don't even allow pics in signatures.

people who recently came here flock to a board where they openly insult and curse at one an other.

Not true. Flame each other yes. Tease each other without a doubt! Most of the cursing I have seen here has come from original necrotalk members, cursing at eqnecro people. Unless you think words like nimrod, idjit and dufus as cursing. I call them descriptions. Some of you have even turned the phrase, eqnecro people, into a curse word of sorts as if we are inferior.

This is not true for everyone. Some have made an effort to reach out a welcome hand, but others have thumbed your noses at us. But, that is to be expected as you were here first and feel like it is your home we are invading.

As for the porn..it has no place here imo. If I want porn, I'll go google and find me some.

I agree again. But, for arguments sake, where do you draw the line? Someone mentioned that it is a Necro board meant for Necromancy things. Then should people who constantly post off topic stuff be banned as well? Lets take Magisterdark for instance. It should be pretty obvious to all that I don't much care for his constant WoW cheerleading and I take every opportunity to berate him about it. But, if he were denied the right to post his wow nonsense, or even banned for it, even though it is total nonsense and it really has no place on an EQ message board, I don't think I would want to stick around here.

I can't defend everyone from eqnecro, because a lot of them are indeed idiots or lifelong adolescents, but don't think for a minute that those of us from eqnecro hold a monopoly on stupidity or childish behavior. You have your share of short-bus riders and Jr high schoolers on this message board as well.

I said all of the above nonsense to get to my point... Don't change a thing. Give an inch and people will take a mile. I would put it like so...

"Welcome to my message board. I'm sorry that your old boards were destroyed. You are welcome here so long as you obey the rules as have been in place for a long time. I realize things were different on eqnecro and that you had a lot more freedom in what you could talk about and do but ... (to steal a line from EQ history) ... You're in my world now"

if you are discussing about "porn links or not", you are far away from a discussion about the real issue.

porn links have been officially forbidden on eqnecro as well. but honestly, on rant/inferno forum no mod did care about it, as long it has been just links.

i can live with no porn links on inferno. but then the question is still open, if there should be a very lower grade of moderation on inferno or not.

just my 2 cp.

This isn't all directed toward you, Black, but you refer to the groups as most have recently and I wanted to comment on that.

Regarding the devisiveness of late I do believe both sides are equally at fault. The people that came here because "eqnecro" vanished labeled themselves and stood behind one another in these pointless flame wars. I believe it has been used mainly to refer to the group that has been compared to a fraternity...because, well, you all came here and said "I'm from eqnecro" followed by a whole lot of .. something *shrug*. After enough provocation some of the regular "necrotalk" people fed the flames .. out of frustration I believe.

Here, I'll go out on a limb -- had the moderators reacted more quickly and more severly a countless number of electrons and bits on a platter (or two!) could have been used for more constructive discourse.

Here's the bottomline as I see it:

necrotalk was formed for one purpose -- the discussion of a specific aspect of a single video game. The people that come here come here to talk about the everquest necro class.

necro.eqclasses, on the other hand, served two purposes. It saw discussions about the everquest necromancer as well, but it also served as a hangout spot for the cool kids to do all the things cool kids do these days. There's a reason why businesses don't allow loitering and cities don't allow cruising.

It is clear to me that a significant number of people think they need to flame, argue, complain, "burn" each other with phat pwnagezorz, and post 200 off topic posts for every one post that regards the eq necro. Even though I don't understand that very well it is apparent. The fact that people need to do all that other stuff doesn't preclude any contribution they might make to the real purpose of this site (that necro thing, remember) but if not done right it can be annoying.

Umbrello gets to decide if he wants to rope off a corner of this place for the cool kids to hangout all day. He gets to decide because he pays all the bills. He gets to decide if the "volume" brahman and crew is so proud of is worth his real-life $$. And he gets to decide if both needs can be met here without affecting the other.

Really, I have enjoyed the drama of the past week. It brings back many memories for me. I had forgotten about the trials and tribulations ... the systematic opression brought about by the tyrannical dictators of authority! I was there once, too ....

I had an account on both sites, and believe my first post to this board was made after necro.eqclasses went offline. Who's group am I in?? I think I'm having an identity crisis! :blink: Some of this post might be OT, am I a cool kid too?

Re-read your post Lesk. It is a perfect example of what propagated the division in the first place.

Sure, the eqnecro crowd came here all arogant and tried to bend this sight to what eqnecro was. The correct repsonse and reaction to that attempt should have been calm but decisive action by mods. Instead, the necrotalk vets reacted with venom which only poured fuel on the fire eqnecro people brought with them.

Eqnecro folks are far from innocent. But, for years they have been members of a message board that allowed them free reign to attack and flame those who attacked them. That's not an excuse for some of the bad behavior, but there is no excuse for the bad behavior of necrotalk folks either.

Which site is better? I'm undecided at the moment. I like the calmer approach this board has about some things, but if I feel the urge to rant about my exwife and her many exploits, as I often do, I don't want to have to worry about the thread being locked or moved because I called her a raving lunatic.

Oh, and please don't throw us all into the "brahman and crew" bucket. Braham does now and then post a small tidbit of useful information, but 95% of his crap is just that.... crap. But, He knows this as well as anyone. And I have said the same thing on eqnecro.

no huge post count here, and I truly enjoy the mature atmostphere here, but...all he's asking is if we should be allowed to put LINKS to porn in the OOC/rant section of this site. If you are dumb enough to click on unknown links while at work, you deserve to get busted looking at porn. most times when someone puts up links on any of the forums(all EQ) I browse, if it's not something I recognize I don't go there. simple enough.
what is wrong with this...

Re-read your post Lesk. It is a perfect example of what propagated the division in the first place.

I believe what I said -- at least what I meant to say -- is that stands were made by both sides, an action that rarely produces anything constructive.


The correct repsonse and reaction to that attempt should have been calm but decisive action by mods. Instead, the necrotalk vets reacted with venom which only poured fuel on the fire eqnecro people brought with them.

See, this is part of the problem. You don't get to decide what the correct reponse is. This isn't your sandbox. Umbrello makes the rules, and like all rules, they are interpreted by those tasked with enforcing them. Rules are always a guideline and mods have a responsibility, above and beyond anything written, to act in a manner that represents the overall wishes of the community they represent. It isn't unlike politics and the American legal system.


But, for years they have been members of a message board that allowed them free reign to attack and flame those who attacked them.

And what part of that is any concern to anyone here? Why would you expect it to be? Pick a random message board and post all your crap there and see how they react. Type "message board" into google and use the lucky button.

The fact that necrotalk and necro.eqclasses were both ostensibly created for the "necro community" doesn't dictate in any way what should or should not be expected by the users of any website that claims to be part of that community. Common netiqutte which was flamed over long before everquest suggests you should observe an existing group of people before trying to rub elbows....to prevent this hostility and animosity and all that stuff.


Which site is better? I'm undecided at the moment. I like the calmer approach this board has about some things, but if I feel the urge to rant about my exwife and her many exploits, as I often do, I don't want to have to worry about the thread being locked or moved because I called her a raving lunatic.

Really, I'm not sure why you would expect the necro community as a whole to be interested in your exwife, unless she's "hawt", and I would hope you would take the time to judge the reactions of the existing userbase before posting anything offtopic. If you decide that there probably aren't a lot of people here that care about your personal life you might want to seek out some other message board. I'm sure there are plenty of self-help groups that will listen to you. The fact that you play a necro does not demand exclusivity in the people with which you correspond and it doesn't grant you any rights or authority here or elsewhere. If you decide that you refuse to give patronage to a site that does not meet your standards do what the rest of the world does -- vote with your feet, or mouse as it may be. There's your rights.

This is not a cult. You can frequent as many message boards as you want.


Oh, and please don't throw us all into the "brahman and crew" bucket. Braham does now and then post a small tidbit of useful information, but 95% of his crap is just that.... crap. But, He knows this as well as anyone. And I have said the same thing on eqnecro.

I apologize for that. It was not my intention to put you or the entire "eqnecro" crowd into "brahman and crew", but the latter is certainly a subset of the former. I think by that point I was on a soapbox and had stopped addressing you directly. And I completely agree with the rest of this. He has a lot of experience in the game and does have knowledge to share. I've enjoyed most of his posts that actually pertain to everquest.

Heh, I don't think people have a problem with anyone solely because they came from eqnecro. It was only the actions of a few. Then a few more defended them.

If the situation had been reversed, and everyone/alot of this board went to eqnecro, and started complaining and whining because the site is what we wanted or were used to. Wanted more constrictive rules and basically a SFW website to read about necromancy, I'm quite sure we'd be told collectively where to go, and how to get there.

You don't jump into your neighbors pool, piss in it..and expect him to wait with baited breath for you to come back. If people just jumped in and went along with the behavior/ruleset of this site, I doubt there would of been a problem. Some of the eqnecro crowd has been coming over here, and insulting our board, moderators and rules, saying that there's no freedom here etc etc. Well, that doesn't really open a door for him and his friends, when they're tossed out on their ass. Nor does it make people who post here regularly happy that they're coming.
Instead of proving us wrong, they immediately(a select few) acted like we thought they would, and that's where the majority of the problem started.

Is either side innocent? NO. Would you want your site to change to exactly why you left the last one you went to..I'm guessing NO, and that's where the hesitation and anger came from.

Well actually, no, the eqnecro crowd are not part of the necrotalk community, at least not some of them. It takes more than a few days to be part of a community. Of course, anyone could become part of the community here, but it's not like you are instantly part of a community just because you show up there one day.


The correct repsonse and reaction to that attempt should have been calm but decisive action by mods.

You know, I don't think I was strict enough. I tried to give a little on some things, and that just ended up making things worse. I was worried about the accusations of 'Nazi moderation' and I forgot that those accusations were going to be thrown about even when I did no moderating.

Everyone jumped on the band wagon, even some long time members of necrotalk, thinking that things were being moderated. They weren't. Sorry folks, that was just another line some flamers threw you. Just because someone says things are being over-moderated doesn't make it true.

Don't give me too much credit though. I am an old crusty fart and can be quite obnoxius upon occaison.

As a rule, I don't flame anyone unless flamed first. Except for Mags. I just can't help myself with Mags. He's so... flamable. I will try to behave myself on these boards though. Key word: TRY.

I didn't and I stand by what I wrote. Maybe I could have been clearer.

The necrotalk vets *get to* because they are *necrotalk vets*. Do you understand that? This is their eqnecro, if that helps. The mods can only act based on rules and public opinion -- opinion expressed by members of the "public" a group that you could only characterize in this context as "necrotalk vets". You cannot walk in here off the street and demand equal representation. You have no virtue that guarantees acceptance by the necrotalk crowd. And just in case this reads like an attack let me say this: I am in the same position.

It takes time to be accepted by other people and if you demand acceptance it will never come.

I really didn't want to argue about this but I don't want any confusion. I'll step down now, I promise. I have been thoroughly trolled recently.

Blackheart can go where he wants. I like him, and I'll cuss anyone who cusses him. He was welcome on the old boards, welcome here, and welcome on the new ones too. He knows that.

The necrotalk vets *get to* because they are *necrotalk vets*. Do you understand that? This is their eqnecro, if that helps.

Understood. And, while agree that they "get" to, I do not agree with the method in which a lot of them did.

Thanks KB1, and yes I know I can go anywhere. I have created an account on the new boards but will likely wait awhile before doing anything but lurking until the testosterone levels settle down a bit. Meanwhile, I have discovered I like it here as well.

Not at all Sskelli. Sometimes, one just tires of wading through piles of crap to find a single acorn of worthwhile or even entertaining information.

I started an account on the new site but so far have seen very little else but pure crap. And, I don't need to wade through 100 posts about penis comparisons or porn links or redneck news links to get my entertainment. I'm sure that one day the unwashed masses will settle down and start to actually use the site for information and useful tidbits of knowledge instead of the "WE-rock you suck!" boys club that it is at the moment.

Meanwhile, I am enjoying a nice vacation from all the over abundent testosterone and am just lurking.

And, you should know me well enough that I am arrogant and pig-headed enough that I will likely bash heads with a lot of people here at necrotalk. Sooner or later they will come to their senses and boot me out ;P

oh so true :)

Problem atm is that alot of the best "guides" that come out these days are in response to good questions / discussion with the people just coming up through the content. Getting the people that just need a place to chill isn't that hard, but the newbs with questions takes time.

Honestly, given the people that I see signing up, and checking the boards regularly, I see some really great threads starting very shortly after we get just a few power hungery lowbie necro's there.
