New Server? question for members

Post by JaKoB on Sun Jun 18, 2017 6:41 pm

Last night I cleaned out members in our sever that have not been on in 6 months.

I am going to ask a question of some of you here, should we close our current server and open a new one and start fresh, and allow it to be open?

Advantage of a new server is I can do permissions way ahead of members coming in, so there will be no one able to do things like they have been able to do with our current one. I can also Google any photo's people try and use and screen them better, then wait until we got a 100 members and try and do it then.

The only reason I bring this up is because I got a lot of people that sent pm's about not allowing our chat room to be open, plus they miss the Discord app in our forum so they can see who is on.

So, members, tell me what you think?

Jakob, I know we have had issue's in the past with trolls, but I think by keeping our chat room closed we punish anyone that would want to join. My idea is open it, have us Mods watch it close, and tell new members they got 30 days to do an intro post or they are out.
We know who problem people are, so we ban them first time they come in. Keep kids and video room though.+

Maybe starting a chat room over is what we need, and leaving it open.

Keep it closed. Stick with your original idea, if they want to join they join the forum and do an intro post. Leaving it open the same people that came here before to cause problems will return again because they have no life, or anything else to do.

If there were people that came in the chat room before to cause problem's and are determined, they will be back, I say leave it closed.

opening a new server is up to you, Jakob, and as far as allowing it to be open? no, keep what you have going now and only allow people to join the chat room after they have at least posted a member introduction

The rest of us had to do a post when we joined, why should people just be allowed to come in without us knowing anything about them? Keep it closed I vote for  Very Happy

?? affraid ??

The Saying 'If It Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It', Comes To Mind....!

Seems Changing Servers~Serves No Purpose....!

Any Open Chat, Is A Magnet For Cretins & Other Undesirables.....!

Leave It In It's Present Form & Perhaps Find A Way To Show Who's In The Chat, Without An Open Invite Included.....!

lol!

Thanks to everyone that replied here, and also those people that I talked to, or texted me.

I have decided the chat room will remain private, no Discord widget in the forum, and new members that wish to enter the chat room must join the forum, and do an introduction post first.
