  1. 1. Should we continue to have a members only section.

    • Yes, it's a good thing.

    • No, I think it may take away many of the good threads from the other sections of the site.

I agree, I thought the mods were supposed to move clean enough material to the off topic section.

So is the off topic not regulated under the rules of cleanliness?

I wondered sometimes why some of the threads were not moved to off topic myself!

The only one I saw moved was the Ligers by cholla. Hmmm...

IMHO if there is no real difference in this section then there is no since in having it. It just makes the forum look dead to the new people browsing testmy.

I ditto Shug.I think" Off Topic" can handle any thing that can be posted in "Members Only" now.

coknuck :I see waterRTBH Second Shifters banner.

waterRTBH;I see ROM-DOS's google banner too.

tommie gorman ;I thought I would just add to this post.Yes Off Topic is regulated under the rules of cleanliness.I split a topic & created the carbs V. fuel injection topic in off topic I think if I would look I would fins another one or two I moved.Van Buren is always moving topics to off topic.

Again, how is off topic regulated by the rules. Technically speaking of course.

Just so I do not make any mistakes. Adult other than full-body shots is ok then?

Well CA3LE doesn't want anything moved to Off Topic unless it is over so many posts long and is just basically people BS'ing. Either that or if it is REALLY off topic like "here are some pics of my dog" CA3LE is pretty strict about what goes to off topic so I personally don't move alot there unless it falls directly in his specifications. As far as the rules of Off Topic they are they same as all other boards. No nudity, No flamming and so on so forth. Hope this cleared it up a little.

I voted "No, I think it may take away many of the good threads from the other sections of the site." (among other things)


Any long time member (new members as well) has to ask himself/herself a couple of questions:

Why do I love TMN so much?

What makes it so popular?

Why have I been here for so long?

I'm sure it's because of the great atmosphere, openness of everything, and remarkable people whom you enjoy talking with daily.

  • There wasn't anything hidden or exclusive when I first joined?
  • A required post count wasn't mandatory to gain access to certain parts of the site.
  • Freedom was granted to all members and everyone felt equal.

This new "Members Only Lounge" section divides the unity of the community. Most of the topics here belong in "General" or "Off Topic" anyway.

If the section remains, I'll support it. However, the need for it is nonexistent.

This is exactly my feeling.. very well worded :)
