Hi everyone,

This forum is becoming a bit too much like face book. Chris and I really do not mind you chatting and having clean fun together on the forum.  An anon posted recently that it was really nice that they could chat and share ideas with others and still be anonymous.  I understand this and I have no desire to stop it but I do want to limit it a little.

My policies are  not clean cut yet.  Every day there seems to be something new posted that I want to think about, but here are some of my thoughts.

1. Choose one or maybe 2 chat threads that are used on any one day.  Do not keep making a new thread just to say hello etc.

Most of the threads must be related to mathematics otherwise questions get lost in a sea of social posts and I don't think any serious members would want that.

2. NO pics of a person asking if this person is pretty.  Other users do not know who these pics are of and they could be disguised bullying.  

3. This is not a forum for religious or political posts.  It is an international forum. People have many different beliefs and veiws.  Always try to be thoughtful and tolerant of what other people believe.  The easiest way to not offend people is to stay away from contentious issues.

4. Always be wary. People can claim to be anyone on the internet and they can keep up the deception for a long time.  Do not give away personal information like your full name, your phone number or address or your school.

 

---------

Having said this I want you to know that I am very proud of the regular youth members that we have here.  Collectively you are a very thoughtful and tolerant bunch of young people.  :)

 

Feel free to comment :)

also Melody, I highly suggest that we get rid of the fact to add Anonymous users to the website. They've been taking the Anonymous name to their advantage and they've been wrecking the forums with inappropriate content, but the worst part is they're anonymous. This means that they can easily get away with it. I believe that there should be a feature to where in order to like or comment or even to post you must register for a account. This way there would be no anonymous users, we know everyone's activity, and we can, for once, save the forums...

With All Due Respect,

hmmm let's see

#1 it may be difficult for me to keep track of the number of chatrooms, but just be aware melody that they may get lost at sea throughout the day. #1 is really difficult to manage.

I completely agree with #2. im getting tired of people asking me: is this girl pretty?, especially when people like JackForst do it

#3  I do understand that everyone has their own beliefs and i respect their beliefs, even if i dont agree

#4: I knew that rule ever since i played clash of clans and pixel gun 3d! sometimes untrusted people claim themselves as a 10 year old girl but turn out to be a 30 year old dude with a beer bottle in his hand.

i can follow all these rules, but just to let you know, it would be difficult to manage #1

Thanks Brittany and Titanium. 

 

I agree with TitaniumRome, there are more negatives to allowing people to post anonymously then there are positives.  For some people the positives are great but unfortunately other people take advantage and do their best to spoil the forum for others.

 

However, the owner of this site insists that people be able to post anonymously.  I do not understand his logic nor do I need to.  This is his forum, we are lucky and grateful that he has provided it for us, and we must use it, and make the best of it, as it is :)

Hi Melody,

 

I really wanted to post something like this, but I didn't want act like I'm the boss around here...

 

Thanks for this post, I'm getting annoyed by this place turning like it with everyone saying hello every second...Or even if they're going offline?! What's the point.

 

People also take advantages of this, and like you said some bullying happens.

 

I have seen this a lot like Titanium, Jack Frost , Dbg4thebest... But I don't wanna name anymore....

I am glad that you reminded me MG that is another thing

 

5. If someone posts a proper maths question please do not start playing in that thread.

It can be very distracting.  :))

That right melody.... Even I noticed some limit- crossed posts and I think such personal things should be avoided!

i jut read this post of ties excluding the comments! I haven't been getting any time now a days! Becoz I'm trying to develop a reading habit and not just stick to the internet be coz my last trip showed how close I was to the Internet! 

 

Currently in in reading a very very very fat book that's the book thief! It's the best I've read till now! I'm at is end and I just have to keep it away from me coz when I see it I go onto ready and can't prepare for the tests so yeah it's awesome! I can say the book is way better than the movie awe the writer gives you such a 3d feel ! I almost wanted to cry and laugh out loud!

Not all books are bad! I highly recommend this book! If you read it , you'll just want to finish it in one day not minding its thickness ! The story is so much based on reality! I just love it!

 

which is your favourite book melody?

My warning; don't creep out by the thickness in the beginning it will be confusing and boring and in a rhyming form but later it will be the best book ever! And i just want to give a big hug to its writer! God knows where he's now!

Oh wow! Honestly I didn't know this! Melody can just cross a river and meet him! Wow wow  wow! I wish I could meet him! But I thought it was a German writer! He spoke German in the book! 

 

Dont worry you'll get it! He's brilliantly written! 

 

CPhill when u get the book and read it tell me!

My face has stuffed into the I am number four. (The series)

 

I've read, I am Number 4 , The power of six , The rise of nine , The fall of five and right now I'm waiting for an order of The revenge of seven. The book after that is coming out this September!!! (By Pitacus Lore)

 

I really recommend these books it's a great book!

 

While in waiting for the order.

 

I'm reading The dead (By Charlie Higson) The first book is the Enemy.

 

Does anyone know any of the books?

Looks like I've got companions!well when I read the name of " I am number 4" , pikachu just popped in my mind! Lol that's funny!

 

ive seen the movie of number four but didn't know the books too existed! I'll see if my school library has got one!

 

as I saw the book thief was coming on television I made it to see it but I forgot and now have no idea when it came! Well the book is more good!

 

 

 

im glad to see a new God read books! You've got a good choice but r those your favourite one! If that's so j think you don't read new books and just stick to the series!

 

well whose got a love for Archie! Isn't he so charming and funny! One day I was reading an Archie comic in my phone and I almost fell with my phone laughing on the floor! Luckily dad wasn't around!

Rosala, the film of I am number is rubbish compared to the book (well what 1000 people have told me).

 

Lol, I can see how Pikachu comes into your head!

I'm also a pokemon fan, I haven't the new game Alpha / Omega I've already played ruby and sapphire.

 

I've read The book theif, but partially it was around two years ago I was 9. I hardly understood it but know that you've reminded me it's an amazing book (from what I've read). I will read it after the Dead.

 

I'm the exact reader it's been like a year since I've really gotten into books because of my brothers lecture. I think it's a near tie between the Harry potter series and I am number four.

 

But I slightly like Harry potter more.

no no no, everyone. you cant start some "book" club without one of my favorite book toppings:

EXTREMELY DARK AND HORRIFYING WWII HISTORICAL FICTION STORIES

READ THE ONLY THING TO FEAR! WAS AWESOME!

oh, and also dont forget to read about what is judged by the cover birds in love, but it actually in the inside of a book competing for life by force and its not birds in love, its bow and arrow gal (Katniss) and bread boy (Peeta)

You know MG .......I haven't read fault in our stars! I've bought it! Brand new it's kept in my shelf hidden! I bought it with my pocket money! I'm a big saver so I had to get guts to buy it! I've heard people praise so I thought to read the famous thing! The cover, my brother saw it, he said he'll tell my dad and he did but I somehow did not how my dad the cover or else he'd have killed me! I'll make a blank cover for the book for I can read it in the summer holidays! I know the book will be good!

XD ive seen the movie its good but i have not read the book.

ps for once someone agrees with me on The Hunger Games, but didn't expect Titanium Rome to be the one, since he believes that Battle Royale is a better movie
