Re: When is a personal blog not a personal blog?

I reffered to the negotiation because you have said several days earlier everyone was invited to discuss it ..you remember..the one no members other than the pt and the bloggers attended :D Wrong. How the heck would you know anyway? Were you there? But for the avoidance of doubt, you're wrong. It w...

Re: Apositive chat room?

I set up a tinychat room called "positivelyace"; unfortunately positivelyasexual was one letter too long. If they want to take it forward I'll send over the admin details[*] to Nancy and Kæth when they get back. If not, no loss as it only took a few minutes to set up. It won't really need ...

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

Tan, I will agree with you on one thing. I wish the thread could be declassed. (As I've said before I think threads should be declassed early if requested.) Then everyone could judge for themselves. In the meantime, as I mentioned in a PM there's a possible way you could discuss it being declassed a...

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

Yes there are all sorts of things like that on tumblr. Did you read it? It includes: "The cis people don’t want to make room for anyone outside of their stupid f***ing binary. The asexuals don’t want to make room for the demisexuals. " and similar comments about race. In other words, AVEN ...

Aaah I see the confusion. You thought it was a negotiation of some kind with the bloggers. You said it exactly: "you want something from us... what have you". I see. That's what you thought it was. Wrong. It's up to us to do the right thing whether or not anyone else has policies we agree ...

Re: When is a personal blog not a personal blog?

I don't see any relation between my saying that piffy is being silly (which he was - very) and you being warned for posting that (in a particular context and given previous communications). Even if I agreed with you about Piffy's smartness and sagaciousness, it's quite possible for smart etc people ...

Forums and chats are quite different; they don't usually detract from each other. Plus some would find the apos forum via the chat, coming from AVEN.

Re: When is a personal blog not a personal blog?

You are just being silly. If AVEN members have a problem with their sensitive posts being linked off site we'll address that. The default is that posting links is fine. That's the case the other way round too. AVEN members don't need permission to link blog posts. We can't control what people do on ...

Re: When is a personal blog not a personal blog?

No-one complained about their "aven links" being used without permission. Why should we ask them to do something that (as far as we know), no-one wants them to do, i.e. remove the links? That doesn't make any sense. IF another aven member had said "hey... you know I'm not really happy...

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

AVEN has not changed. These issues have been coming up year after year. Even before I joined people were bemoaning "the end of AVEN as we know it". I can't remember a single year without hearing about the imminent collapse of AVEN. It's never come so far. Maybe one day, but we're a long wa...

Apositive chat room?

Maybe we should make a strictly unofficial (and off-site) apositive chat room? They're actually quite easy to make. We could set up a tinychat room in a few minutes for example. It would not be possible to pull logs so it would have to be unofficial plus Nancy and Kæth I'm guessing wouldn't want ano...

Everyone was invited to that meeting who had an interest in this affair. That included all members and even non-members for that matter.

They admitted they were wrong on one part (asking people to breach).

Your still not getting it are you? No, you're not getting it. The team made a mistake - an honest one - and then admitted that in a subsequent PM to Ciri. You can't have it both ways.
