Forum Changes January 2020

    On January first these changes were made.

    Three new forums added to the forum.

    A frequent complaint by members was that non-incest content was intermingled in the "incest" forums. In early 2018 most "incest" forums were split into two companion forums, one for "incest" and one for "other". Staff then moved the non-incest content to the new forum. At that time no mixed content was found in three forums so companion forums were not created at that time. Based on suggestions from members these three companion forums were created.​

    Other Videos (companion to Incest Videos)
    Real Other Experiences (companion to Real Incest Experiences)
    Other Advice (companion to Incest Advice)​

    Story Forums

    The story forums are intended for fictional content only, but staff is frequently dealing with non fiction content. The forum description does describe this: "[Members Only] This section for the posting of FICTIONAL ****** stories. Age 1x+ only.". to make it clearer I added (fiction only) to the forum titles.​

    Change in Post Requirement for Trusted Status

    When the forum required 15 posts and 45 days it was much easier for staff to identify the trolls, creeps, pedos, and advertisers. As the requirements were slowly reduced to the current 5 posts and 10 days, these individuals also became better at hiding their intentions. Although more moderators were added it eventually became apparent that we needed to increase the probationary period, the post count, or both. I decided that we would start with post count only and see what happens.

    Ideally, this change would have only affected new members. Unfortunately, the forum software doesn't work that way. Because it would affect trusted members I did post a warning in September, October, November, and December so that trusted members could add posts before January. Based on the large increase in postings it appears that very few took preemptive action.​

    I wasn't able to get on until today actually finding a direct link to the forum as my old links now redirect to ads..

    It seem like a bother to those of us that infrequently post, but I appreciate it will serve to improve the content. Thanks!

    Ideally the forum software would have a "promote only" option for upgrades but it doesn't, it's only "promote & demote".

    The change had no effect on the occasional or active posters, only the lurkers and a few new members.
    The vast majority of lurkers made 5 posts then never posted again.

    The biggest impact is on forum staff. They have to deal with the questions caused because the lurkers ignored the multiple announcements posted since September. I wasn't really too concerned about inconveniencing the lurkers because they really add nothing constructive to a forum.

    Unfortunately I now realise I was classed as a "lurker". I made my five posts then stopped. I don't tend to post a
    Lot on any the forums I'm on but I know understand I need to participate more in the community. My apologies.

    Sorry for being a lurker. Never had anything to add to people lucky enough to actually experience this stuff.
