something has clearly changed within the space of a month to make you change your attirude so glaringly ( these quotes all came from less than a month ago roughly )
gg said it himself that this problem was just as bad at the time of the anniversary thread as it is now, so can you tell me what changed since these quotes and where you stand now.

i have 0 problems with forced anon, i have probelms with the direction this site that i feel a part of is taking.
So you're discussing the interest of this site by attacking 5 or so post of his even though this was my decision? Pardon me if I don't see the connection. You have a problem with the direction, say it to me. If you have any suggestions to improve things. Mention them to me.

no but it shows that one of the two main people who are saying there's a problem with the community seemed to be of a completely different view point less than a month ago when the problem was supposedly just as bad.
it's a disconnect.
had he mentioned to you in any detail the way he felt about this before his post the other day? or was that the first you knew of his opposition to this supposed endemic problem we have here.
it's MY decision
stop talking about him or take it to /bros/

I saw the numbered thread yesterday. More than 50+ posts about Dating Drama-related material, none of the mods did a thing. Somebody once said "please continue this in Dating Drama" ONCE, and after that it continued in the numbered thread for like an hour…
And it's still pretty easy for me at least to recognize the other posters, but since Circlejerking Threads are up, we go to chit-chat there.
So, I say, keep forced anon, it does good for the numbered threads, and it helps you achive your goal of Chlomo becoming more Chloë-centric.

I'm leaning toward option 3, but I am torn. I do enjoy the fact that the /chloe/ board has been almost entirely on topic with no drama, but at the same time I sense the place has lost something. That sense of community here is something I enjoy and I'm proud of what this site has accomplished. I think the site would lose a lot if we stay forced anon.
If I as a mod need to be more strict to keep everything on topic, so be it. >This pic will be used everyday.
But there could be other ways to help keep things on topic. In the comment field at the top, maybe it could say "Please keep your post on topic to Chloë" or something to that effect. Maybe users could "earn" the right to use a name/trip by becoming a poster who really is here for Chloë first. Or maybe it works the other way, if someone is circle jerking too much, instead of banning them, they become forced anon for a set amount of time. (I'm not sure if these are things that can be easily implemented into the site. I'm just spitting out ideas.)

This place has been a wasteland of boredom this whole week. If things were to continue as they do now, I would think that many people will eventually leave or become permanent lurkers only here for the new media as said in >>19242
Sure, the forced anon has been in place in an uneventful Chloë week, but I still think this will hurt your community more in the longer run that it will benefit you.
For the good of this community, I would say number 3
. Bring back the state as it was and then make your moderators moderate the threads more.
But give the community some slack. Don't be go GBTC at the first off-topic comment or question. People should be allowed to ask their questions or when appropriate or especially if we are talking new users. Give them more slack than the oldfags or you will scare them away. Noone wants to come into a new community and feel like you are being yelled at. Makes you feel like it is a closed placed.
BUT! Combine the moderationt with how the thread is going:
Is it an eventful thread with a lot of new Chloë media and events to talk about? Then keep a harsh line on the off topic stuff so fans can better follow the Chloë discussions.
Is it a an uneventful thread, like those we have had in this week? Then give the community some more slack so the place don't die down and let people do more chit-chat than normal, but still don't allow it to become the /bros/ circlejerking thread. If too much chat is going on step in and ask people to go to /bros/
Sometimes good Chloë discussions are born out from some of all the circlejerking.>>19237
Someone did, but it did not work as someone else has ruined the dating thread by suppressing it from being bumped so others can't see if anything new is going on. Hence they will not go there.
Chlobro (cc49) 19244
>>19243>someone else has ruined the dating thread by suppressing it from being bumped
The dating thread was ruined when shaman started turning it into his daily ping pong match where he would argue with anyone who posted there like it was a fucking never ending game. So when that thread lost its meaning it served no interest to have it bumped. It also a thread that some people didn't like constantly seeing on the home page so it makes sense that only people who would use it would be those would be instructed to go there ("take that discussion to the dating drama thread")
>Is it a an uneventful thread, like those we have had in this week? Then give the community some more slack so the place don't die down and let people do more chit-chat than normal,
You people have a fucked up misconception that this place should be alive 24/7. It shouldn't. It's not an eventful week, there's nothing to post? Then don't post. Go and do something else

>>19244>Ex-fucking-cuse me? The dating thread was ruined when shaman started turning it into his daily ping pong match…
True, but where are your moderators? They should step in and stop the endless ping-pong in other threads, too? Or are they confined to the numbered threads only?
>You people have a fucked up misconception that this place should be alive 24/7. It shouldn't. It's not an eventful week, there's nothing to post? Then don't post.

Tried that and failed. There is only Chloë for many of us. And if there is no news about Chloë, the next best thing is to talk about Chloë with your fellow Chloë fans, and if there is nothing Chloë related to talk about, then the next next best thing is just to talk to your fellow Chloë fans.

That is all good if only the casual circlejerkers where to leave.
Everyone circlejerks from time to time. I've seen GG circlejerk, DM circlejerk and lots of the oldfags circlejerk. I circlejerk, too. You will not be able to stop it. People wander off Chloë discussions because they are having a good time socializing and just because you run out of Chloë stuff to talk about does not mean you suddenly can stop the social momento going on.
The whole issue boils down to how to moderate it if it gets out of hands, not to moderate the small chit-chat going on from time to time.
If you remove that, you will end up with 3 hardcores, 2 oldfags and 3 normal Chloë fans on this site and noone, but yourself, to find the newest Chloë stuff and noone to give your precious "thanks".
You will eventually end up like the gochloe website. People go there seeing the emptiness and then think: "This place is dead, I'm not gonna stay here" and find somewhere else to go. And I think the site is dead today, btw.
The bigger the community the bigger the chance that you will lure in hidden hardcore Chloë fans from other parts of the internet.
Force has never been the solution to anything. Smart moderation and helpful guides to the lost souls will get your a lot further.

You and your mate DM told me to fuck off from the numbered thread to there with my bullshit. I did that and lots of topic related thing happened in the meantime. So the Dating Drama thread can't be used
like another one, because we can't talk or argue there? Or what is this shit? I can't respond to people's posts? We can't really talk
about that topic there? So why is it existing in the first place? Or am I the one who shouldn't be posting there? Why?

I beg to differ. He didn't want it but he is indirectly responsible for all this shit when he "had a sad".
But… to tell you the truth i'm glad this has all happened and it served a useful purpose. The circle-jerk threads have been created in /bros/ and there is no more excuses for continually doing it in the numbered threads. If they cant get the msg then ban a few of them till it sinks in.
So, lets go with option 3.
Chlobro (cc49) 19256
>>19255>I beg to differ. He didn't want it but he is indirectly responsible for all this shit when he "had a sad".
I was talking about being directly responsible and like I said before this was inevitable, we would have went with forced anon either way sooner rather than later

Chlobro (6d21) 19257

Of course he couldn't have been but of all the people here he clearly has the biggest influence over your actions ( of course you will deny this ) and he was also opposed to dating drama as was made patently apparent in numbered threads of yore.
It's clear he was predicating factor in both this whole debacle and the unecessary bump locking of the drama thread, and I assume this "insults are a problem here" can be in some way linked to him too.
I change my mind by the way, I think going to the third option would be better.

And that is the main reason almost all the forum members are also here. If it wasn't most would not even be here, and while several of you might rejoice about that thought, it would be safe to say, that a few of the forum members do contribute a lot to this community as well.
But the forum is not the issue here. Chlomo is.

Just because I respect his opinion and sometimes I agree with him does not mean the has an influence on me. Ofc I'll deny it because pit's pure bullshit
There are a handful of people here who's opinions I really respect and that have a bigger influence on me than most other users, and he's one of them but not the only one. You used to be one too but you turned into such a fucking cunt (or maybe you always were and I just realized it recently)
>and he was also opposed to dating drama as was made patently apparent in numbered threads of yore.
I don't think anyone opposed the drama thread idea since people were getting annoyed by it
he had nothing to do with it
>It's clear he was predicating factor in both this whole debacle and the unecessary bump locking of the drama thread,
bump locking the thread was my decision and the only person who influenced that was shaman (unwillingly)
and like I told your stupid ass before forced anon was entirely my decision (just like it was about a year ago when we did it before)
>and I assume this "insults are a problem here" can be in some way linked to him too.

(mainly the do something else part)
Chlobro (9fff) 19261
>>19260>(mainly the do something else part)
Do something else for me includes going to the forum. When bored there, I go here. When bored here, I go to Twitter, when bored there I go to Instagram. When bored there I google for Chloë news. When bored there, I go through my list of Chloë picture and blog sites hoping for new pictures. When bored there I go back to the forum. When bored there, I go here…
I can't even watch a movie anymore. The last 5 movies I have watched, I always end up on my laptop going through the above list while the movie continues behind me.
If I read a book. I sit next to my laptop. I can barely read 10-20 pages without having to go through the above list.
I am sorry. But I have Chloë Grace Moretz CDO (see spoiler for definition). I simply can not do anything else without having to do something Chloë related every 10-20 min.CDO is just like OCD, just with the letters in the correct order AS THEY SHOULD BE!

Maybe you should have taken the opiniobn of the people who engaged with that thread on board before just taking action.
I think a balanced perspective is paramount to the success and positive condition of this site going foward and considering it's the best hub for chloe related things out there then it's greatly within my interests to try and provide that balance.

>if mods are more strict (and actually do what they're supposed to - moderate)
See, we've been here before. Every time we try to be more strict with things and ask that it be taken elsewhere the topic immediately shifts to an argument that ends up being more distracting than the original offending topic ever was. I simply do not have the time or patience to engage in this back and forth any longer. Of course it is aggravated by the fact that it's typically the same people pushing back over and over again. Here's the thing: you want me to be more strict then I'm going to do it with bans for repeat offenders. clean. simple. effective. and it doesn't ruin my day.
If constant push back from a few repeaters is not bad enough, now we also have other mod/s pushing back on mods trying to do their jobs and causing additional friction and additional work on everyone. This is NOT cool. We as the staff of chlomo need to be one voice working collectively towards a common goal. Your direction and rules as Admin is the final word. That doesn't mean we shouldn't have a voice, what that means is I expect that we all should respect the positions of each other enough to at least take our arguments private. You don't manage anything by having the managers butting in and questioning the decisions of their peers and openly questioning the decisions of their manager amongst the other employees. This causes chaos and confusion. Management 101. As a mod you uphold the rules, if you don't agree with the rules you shouldn't be a mod to begin with. If the rules change and you have a problem with them you should take it offline and discuss it amongst the other mods/admin. If that still doesn't yield the result you hoped for then you either suck it up and move forward or you step down. The last thing you do is go back to the chan and attempt to "kill it in the corridor". http://www.corridorbusiness.com/consulting/have-a-good-idea-here-are-4-ways-to-kill-it/

I thought it was much better before when you got to know other Chlobros and it felt like you were talking to friends about Chloe instead of just random posters. Now it feels like any old comment section on an article about Chloe. I want my name back!!! I feel like Django before he got Unchained

Well put. In this case I would have substituted the word customers for employees but that doesn't change the validity of your statement. The Mods have the difficult job of deciding if any customers need to be thrown out of the store because they're detracting from the in-store experience. They shouldn't act like they want to throw each other out. Bad for business. The customers may be trying to get away from their own hostile work environment - not jump into another.
okay, we're back to regular posting and this time it will work better than before
circle jerkers have their playground in /bros/
mods should be more strict ( >>19276
) - that doesn't mean that there would be no CJ or offtopic in Chloë, it just means it should be kept to a minimum (read: noticeably less than before)
