    Basically you can still flame but have the rules of the void. So if member A is mad at member B and wants to flame him he can do it in the asylum. But Member B can reply with whatever he wants.

    Discuss.

    Eh, The void is around for no general purpose. The Asylum is there for all those people who can't contribute to intelligent conversations. So really merging a flaming forum with a spam forum wouldn't be the "Hawtest" of ideas.

    I was trying for a more bi-partisan way of going about the asylum.

    Not hating on you when I say this, recognize that it's in relation to the idea: Not a good one.

    Well look at it this way. This removes the supernegativity which is spawned by the asylum by allowing a user to post whatever he wants as a response.

    At this point, I see no reason to remove the Asylum, or merge it with the void. I do think, however, that it should be at the bottom of the index. Seeing a forum full of penis/boob jokes right off could be off-putting to a new browser. That said...the general forums WERE on the bottom of the index, and it was perfectly fine that way. Why DM moved them back up is beyond me.

    A) What maturity level and type of members are we looking to attract? More people that want to shun the Asylum (in which case limiting/hiding/moving it to the bottom would be perfect), or finding people that can help you kill the time by contributing to The Asylum's awesomeness.

    When this site was made, it was the only one of it's kind that let you freely flame anyone on the forums, Administrators included, without the threat of being banned. The agreement was, if you can't take the heat, don't fucking go in there. If you don't like what's in there, why the fuck do you care what's being posted in it? How does people spamming in there affect you in the least bit if you don't like that forum?

    If you can intelligently answer these questions, I'll be willing to have a serious debate with you about it. The fact of the matter is I remember people coming here saying this was the only forum they had ever heard of where you could say whatever you want about anyone you want. It, like the United States, allows freedom of speech. I get enough fucking oppression in the things I can and can't say in Afghanistan. I sure as fuck don't want to see that happen here, regardless of how casual I am.

    The Asylum's fine the way it is. Please stop trying to think up new ways of fucking with it. Leave it alone and it'll leave you alone.

    B) I like tacos.

    The Asylum\'s there for a reason. It was actually a fun (while still being serious) forum before those call out and semi-naked chick threads started dominating subject matters. Of course, those were the times before even the Arcane Sanctuary existed where people used to discuss things like politics and Jesus without the fear of being oppressed for whatever opinion that was thrown about there.

    That would all make sense Cortalos if the Admins didn't go around banning people for what they did in the asylum. Which is what Mike (who was basically an admin) and others have done.
    And I'm not proposing getting rid of the asylum, I'm proposing merging it with the void. You aren't losing the asylum are the void you are getting a hybrid.

    And I'll think of new ways to fuck with whatever I want cortalos.

    No one will be banned for things in the asylum anymore -- except for porn, which is simply not allowed.

    Good. Cuz I got banned before Because mike didn't like my "negativity" in the asylum even though he was the cause for most of the negativity on this site. I pointed it out to chris and Kinkarso and they did nothing.
