Honestly if anyone is seeing illegal porn posts in the daily thread, a nice push of that report button would be great, since obviously the admin/mods must have missed it.
I'm not trying to call any mods out specifically but the specific instance I read was obviously read by one. I'll PM you, it's an old post and maybe not everyone agrees it was inappropriate.

But, honestly, if I'm off base with my understanding of the situation, I apologize. Have a good day.:)
Be honest: how much of this is about where any random individual draws a line so that it can be "justified" here vs there. Outright porn is always removed (not that it hardly if ever even gets posted) so what is a "fellatio gif" is probably something like this:

Log in or register now. to view Spoiler content!

Adult? Yeah probably. Not necessary? Yupp. Funny if its in reply to something stupid like those fetish HITs that get posted to MTurk? Darn toot'in (ofc he left out the context of the discussion, conveniently, though as stated above ofc there is no doubt content that could be removed for a more professional atmosphere on a forum with a million posts).

I'm not going to reply to anything else since it would involve me going around & linking to "nasty" content here, which almost certainly exists if I had to take a wild guess. That's petty & a waste of time.

My biggest gripe is that in his position as a requester, he shouldn't have said what he said the way he said it. As I've said, I've done it many a time too, and have (rightly) been called out for it.

Way more understandable from some random user than someone who is here in a "professional manner" --- especially when they themselves discuss "licking vaginas" here in your daily thread without being mod edited :nailbiting:
Stuff in Daily thread != stuff in dedicated threads.

This is the part I chose to respond to. shruggieface.txt
Sure thing :thumbup:

Tbh, I think there's some hypocrisy from both sides regarding the types of shitposting allowed on the forums. I am not currently on either forum often these days but have seen posts about illegal porn and other similarly inappropriate topics discussed on here (meaning the daily work thread) without intervention.
Somewhat related to this, but I feel like reporting hasn’t worked very well in the past. One particular user constantly made inappropriate, sexual, and sexist comments in the past. Literally, almost every post. After reporting it several times and nothing really changing, I was told to put the user on ignore if it was bothering me that much. Not a great solution, especially since others might be put off by that sort of behavior in the daily thread as well. I get that it’s hard to police people’s behavior and know where to draw the line, but if one user is constantly vulgar and gross, maybe actually do something about it. Again, I’m not attacking anyone, but just recounting my personal experience and some things that have caused me to visit mtc less and less. And I know I’ve said or posted inappropriate things in the past - just look at my username - but I tried never to cross the line or be annoyingly and consistently offensive.

I learned it on codecademy when I was learning coding, lol. Easier to type than figuring out how to do the slashy equals sign.
I've always done =/= :o
I guess I'm "wronger" than I thought :p

Blatant racism is also another thing that's overlooked. So I just call people out, whether it is "appropriate" or nice, b/c if I go down for that shit, it's worth it. :/

kryss @kryss I maintain a personal server farm for various uses on my own time. I'm more than willing to lend the hardware to the cause. I have no knowledge of any scripting or programming languages other than python. It currently costs me 2k a month to maintain my farm. I do not and will not expect monetary transference to keep it going... I highly doubt it will cost me much more than what I already pay.


P.s. may I add that I wish this was mentioned sooner? Whatever the divisions, turkers are smart as all hell, and this isn't the first, and won't be the last time, that they band together to keep the community going.

I realize there isn't always a mod on, but it's worth more than you think reporting that post. If it's not reported, we're not made aware of it.

Do you mind if I get with you tomorrow, as I'm getting ready for bed. Or maybe it would be a good idea to make a thread to discuss this in the open where others could contribute?

I've said countless times that I'm taking a break from this place, yet I return just days later. Really at this point a break to me is stepping away for a few hours.

All that to say, if I were trusted to maintain the server in some form, it won't be going offline. I've poured hundreds of hours of my time into this place, just like you and many others have. I may have went through various phases of getting along with people, but I'm never not committed to seeing the community I've spent so much time with thrive and grow.

Of course, I'm fine with either. I'm around most times of the day so I should be able to get back to you or anyone else quickly.

Mods were there. That's why I was surprised it was ignored.

It doesn't matter now. Just another person to avoid.

I'm always honest. I don't have the time, nor the inclination to try and waste brain space on inventing or remembering lies. My post was exactly what it said, just a statement on the fact that I wouldn't deem anything inappropriate on any site that I wouldn't also deem inappropriate in a forum of which I am a member. We may not agree on where the line falls but, I hope we can agree on what's way too far. If not, that's cool too, I guess, because we don't have to agree, if you don't want.
When I hear felatio gif, that's not the image that immediately springs to mind. I can't imagine it's your first guess either. If that's what it was, as I said in my post, it should probably be behind a spoiler but, PG13. Not a huge deal. They only reason I even responded was because you blatantly responded to TH is nasty, when that's not what they said. They said a Daily HITs thread that contained fellatio gif was nasty. If they said it about MTC, in that instance, they'd be equally allowed to have their opinion, which was about that Daily thread. I guess I just don't know how any of us can judge what one person finds nasty to be incorrect. But, they obviously weren't making a blanket statement about TH as a whole.

Adult? Yeah probably. Not necessary? Yupp. Funny if its in reply to something stupid like those fetish HITs that get posted to MTurk? Darn toot'in (ofc he left out the context of the discussion, conveniently, though as stated above ofc there is no doubt content that could be removed for a more professional atmosphere on a forum with a million posts).
Adult. Yes. Not necessary? Who cares. Things don't always have to be necessary. Some images, regardless of context, are inappropriate. As I said, I have no idea what the image was and don't even care to guess because, with the amount of gifs out there, my guess would be just as accurate as yours.

I'm not going to reply to anything else since it would involve me going around & linking to "nasty" content here, which almost certainly exists if I had to take a wild guess. That's petty & a waste of time.

My biggest gripe is that in his position as a requester, he shouldn't have said what he said the way he said it. As I've said, I've done it many a time too, and have (rightly) been called out for it.
That is petty. That's why nobody went on TH to find incriminating content to link to. I'm glad we agree on something.

Also inappropriate in daytime hours in our 'Daily' and still pretty close on the overnights. Mods miss things. You should have flagged it. Nobody said TH was nasty(still a poor choice of words but, that's their choice and doesn't reflect anyone but themselves) just that thread which contained a fellatio gif, which can apparently mean all kinds of things.(proven by your gif above) Anyway, glad we could have this discussion. Have a wonderful day :)

Hey thanks for this, btw. If there's anything I can do to help, on the MTC side of things, to make any extra burden that you take on lighter, let me know.:)

All good, I guess we just see it differently, because when a post starts off by saying "taking pot shots" -- well I am gonna take it at face value so he lost me there :hilarious:

Thanks for your take on it :thumbup: (mann this is way too close to the middle-finger emoji, had to 2x check I clicked the right one a few times)

I did that once! The middle finger thing. Maybe more than once. I didn't even know it existed until someone called me an asshole.

The post started with a caveat and a warning that it was overly negative. The OP knew their post was overly negative(as they stated), and second thought it. But, then wanted to still include their observation of one visit because they had already typed it, with the caveat, "and it's inevitable that what one person finds off putting will feel like home for another"(to each their own) and then hid it behind a spoiler as they knew it would come off as negative but, was also in their mind, subjectively true. That's why they knew it would come off as "pot shots" even if that wasn't their intention, denoted by the "I guess" in the spoiler title.

But, you are also allowed to take things the way you'd like too, just as much as they did. I respect your ability to hold it together and have a rational discussion, regardless of how far apart we started. Thanks for sticking it out and putting up with me. :) I promise though, I, and many other mods and admins here have, and will continue to call people out for slagging off entire forums outright. Statements about specific instances, which I think this was, come on a case by case basis. And, as long as they aren't abusive, threatening or outright false, everyone usually gets one. If they had kept hammering on TH, you may never know since it didn't happen, we would have curbed it. Anyway, best argument I've had in a long time. Thank you for trying to keep it rational.
