OK, let me please re-cap this.

Some people have been bad-mouthing the staff for our decision to add rules to this thread, so let me defend us please and explain the reasons behind it. Our hands were tied and we wanted to make sure the thread remains open.

We are not trying to stop your fun. That is the last thing we want. We all love INO as much as you do and want this to remain the best MCR site on the net. We give up a lot of our own time to run this site. I myself am Head of the Performing Arts department in a busy secondary school and I have loads of other commitments and I find time to make sure this site runs well. I know the other admin/mods also have job/lives and we work hard to fit this in around that. We are not doing it to be nazi/dictator-like. We are trying to make the site you love the best it possibly can be.

Some of the captions in this thread went from being funny innuendo (starbucks jokes) to being crude (butt-secks/fuck meee!). We had to do something about it because there are very young users here whose parents check what they are looking at. Can you imagine the trouble this site would be in if we allowed it to go ahead un-monitored?

Page claiming has never officially been allowed on INO. Its against all basic internet-buletin-board ettiquette. It has always been seen as a way of bumping your post count (people purposely post spam in order to get the next page claim.) Telling you not to page claim is nothing new.

Please continue to use this thread and enjoy it and please also stop having a go at us staff. We are only ever working in yor interests.

Thank you for listening.

Tallulah.

I get where your coming from, completly.
Some of the jokes were a wee bit..disurbing..
And it had gone from being a caption thread to a craption thread. .___.
edit: some of the posts were in the craption category, its a matter of opinion anyways. Don't eat me..
It needed to have something done about it..

We'll be good now. =)

I have a suggestion for the dirtier captions: am "adult" picture captions thread, where all the inappropriate jokes for younger people can go. Would that work?

Tallulah; Schechter :
I understand you guys too.
I'm know I'm one of those who went a little too far with my captions, but it won't happen again.
Thanks for giving us another chance.
I don't know what I would do without a Picture Caption Thread. xD

edit; Heaven-Help-Me's idea could work?

Dude, give the lyrics a good hard listen. This is a fansite for a foul-mouthed slightly homoerotic band from Jersey. If these kids are too young for a few man-love jokes, then what are they doing listening to My Chem? What kids see online should be the responsibility of parents, not ours. I would at least give Violet's idea a try and give us a space to be truly expressive.

And it's always been Captionette tradition that you only get the page claim if you actually captioned, and you've seen firsthand the reaming you get if you don't. JUST FOR THE RECORD, it wasn't until recently that anyone's panties got bunched up over it. For the past year, the only time a mod ever came on the Pic Cap thread was to get on us for pyramid quoting. I'll admit, the one Hannah Bond caption was in poor taste, but other than that, what goes down here is just good clean fun. I'm not saying I don't get what you're going for, I'm just saying we've never had to be policed before, so it feels like we're being persecuted for it now.

And just so I'm not spamming (I hope you don't think this is a craption, Dan):

Oh jeez. I'm sure Tallulah's very familiar with the lyrics of MCR, thanks.

What's it come to? So now kids aren't allowed to listen to MCR because their parents wouldn't like them to be exposed to ''manlove'' jokes? If that were so, they'd lose a good chunk of their fanbase.

It's just common courtesy to think of others too.

Simple as. Just find another way to be expressive. There's more to the english language than crass jokes and foul language.

Again. it's always, always, ALWAYS been against the rules to page claim. That's that, nothing else to it.

Okay, so in the past the rules haven't been properly enforced. They are being enforced now.


I don't see what the big deal is. Just listen to the mods and admins and everyone's happy.

OK, so you clearly have a real problem with this. You have already made your feelings about the staff here very clear over the last few days. I've been seeing MCR since 2004, I know very well they are a very adult band, but I'm sorry, if you think it is acceptable for a fansite to have pictures of then with comments like "fuck meeeeee" or "surprise butt seck" or much much worse underneath then, that children read, then sorry, something is wrong. There is no excusing the Hannah Bond thing. I am ashamed that our site was connected with that.

Just for the record, the staff have always been annoyed with the picture captions thread. It's always been a bit seedy and in our eyes, somehow distasteful and disrespectful.

The other thing I have an issue with is this obession with wanting to post, for want of a better word, porn or crude comments? wtf? If thats what you are interested in then maybe this isnt the site for you? This is a band fansite.

As for the page claiming and the other comments.... should this thread have other rules than the rest of the site? No.

I'm sorry of you don't agree. If you have anymore questions I suggest you take it up with the admin.

At first Bob was confused...

Then Bob was unimpressed...

But after thinking about it, Bob decided it'd be okay...

Now Bob has come to the frightening conclusion that he shouldn't spend so much time away from the Picture Captions...
