The O'club is closed pending further review.  We've witnessed the complete degradation of that forum and will have to discuss what options are in the best interest of this game and company.  We'll make a decision regarding the future of that forum soon.  In the meantime, do not bring O'club traffic to this or other forums.

If you have any reasonable and civil suggestions, please feel free to express them in this thread.

Whatever you decide to do Pyro, could the O-Club be archived as read only?  It would be a shame to loose all of that BBS history.

Thanks,

If you tell us that it was because of the wacko jacko threads, we can self police that to a degree. But if it was because of the unsavory characters' posts in the aruba thread, there isn't much leverage the community can wield against the angrily stupids.

Somehow this fails to surprise me.

I believe the OClub provides a valuable means of bringing traffic to this website which has considerable value to HTC.  However, it has been run amok and would benefit from a few more moderators.  How about crowning a few folks from the community with smite privileges and relieve that pressure from HTC staff?

Well... it would be if the search function was working properly. (or is it fixed?)


I'm not surprised... there was too much for one guy to moderate.

oooo no I have no reason to live anymore!

I really like the O'Club, but I'm also for completely free discussions where everybody can say whatever they feel, even at the expense of some getting offended.
That's my take, but I don't think it agrees with the policies of this board.

I'd like to second that too, I wrote up my whole 'getting my pilots license' in the O'Club, and I'd really like to grab a copy of it for my records.  I think my kids might enjoy it when they get older, plus I'd really like to have it.  It wasn't shakespeare, but it meant a lot to me.

let's have the O'Club back.
the idea of setting up more mods for that area of the BB is a good one.
I'd volunteer but...no :)

On all 5 counts...

"We" the STAFF find the whiners (including me)...


1- Posts are to be made in the relevant forum. Users are asked to read the forum descriptions before posting.

(Posting off-topic subjects in the General forum)...

GUILTY!


2- Threads should remain on topic, do not "hijack" topics.

(Deviating on subject)...

GUILTY!


3- Do not open a new thread that duplicates a current topic.

(Multiple duplicate thread offense)...

GUILTY!


4- Members should post in a way that is respectful of other users and HTC. Flaming or abusing users is not tolerated.

(Disrespecting and just plain trolling)...

GUILTY!


5- Flamebaiting, trolling, or posting to incite or annoy

(Same as count 4)...

GUILTY!


(Sentencing will be held the next day or week)

LePaul... could it be moved to your CheckSix site?


Pyro, please don't destroy it. If it can be archived, we'll find someone to take the data.

Thanks!

Then I guess this is good bye Pyro- I will discontinue my Aces High account and delete this site from my bookmarks. It's been nice knowing all of you, but if it's deemed by the powers that be we can't be a Community, but have to be a cash cow, then I don't want to give my money to you guys any longer.

Dale, you are so fugging off base on this one it's unbelievable. Whatever, kill your community.

Airhead, over and out.
