I miss NC.com

What is happening around here? It's like a ghost town.

    I think that's what happens when you push people too far.

    Me too! I didn't come on here for a few days, and it's my favourite thing to do once I get home - have my coffee and check out the forum. I literally clicked refresh because I thought nothing had changed since Friday. :(

    I came to this website after finding a product called Curl Keeper and was offended by the high price. So I googled it and ta da! I found it here. Then I found the product reviews and read for about a month. Then I found the hair forum. It didn't take long until I found the non-hair discussion. I have made some wonderful curly friends. I don't think I'll ever totally be gone, but I may lurk more. You all have been too nice to me for me to run away. :love7:

    A part of my heart is invested in nc.com. It feels like part of it has been taken away. Does anyone up on the high levels understand that? Isn't there a way that only registered users can see all messages and lurkers can't?
    I have no real friends and I have little contact with people beyond work. Nc.com is my place to go to for having friends and to reject loneliness.

    Great post, Speckla!

    I hate that I feel this way, and have disagreed with people for awhile, but feel that's it's definitely a business now and not so much a community. That's fine if that's what the new owners want, but it's sad that it has come to an end.

I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

    Its a shame when things get to the point of members forming other groups. I think its unfortunate because it separates the community even more. Branching off into other groups creates cliques of people who aren't interested in the daily NC conversation, and disappear, only to mysteriously show up in droves when some drama occurs. This is the third time I've seen this happen here. Members come and go and move on to create or visit other sites. It will continue.

    I hope that's all it is, iroc. This time feels different though.

    I think maybe I'll spend some time on yhe hair boards. Thats what people originally come here for, and in order to build back up the contributing members, we need the new members to stay.

    I feel as if the tone of moderation has fractured this board. It's a shame, I agree. I spend far less time here but keep checking back because I like people who I don't communicate with elsewhere, and for little other reason.

    I have sent PMs to mods (details of which I'm not posting here, as I prefer not to get myself banned) but have not felt as if there was a willingness or acknowledgement of the reign of terror feeling they have instilled on the board. Inconsistent and unkind moderation has popped up in many cases, and changing rules post-banning to justify bannings makes it so one has to question when/where the next unprompted strikedown will occur. Even the new rules which are totally inconsistent and unpredictable about who is and isn't allowed to link to websites with things for sale and bannings prior to any clarity on that and with no warning... crazy. For me, that was the last straw - seemingly irrational bannings for no reason. I will only be here on occasion because of people I care about who are still here, but strongly feel the sense of community has been shattered by the powers that be.

    (And hey, since I'm posting this in a thread in the feedback forum, I am actually within the rules in posting this complaint!)

    Does anyone feel that perhaps newcomes are sometimes scared off when they are ganged up on by cliques on the boards? Especially when they give an unpopular opinion or response?

    ^ Standard board etiquette (not just here, but all Internet discussion boards) suggests not posting on heated topics until one has had a chance to establish oneself in the boards in less dramatic ways.

    In going against this common sense approach, one risks the strong likelihood of being labeled a troll. It may seem unfair, but that's just how boards work.

    I only really go on the hair boards, so am "out of the loop." This thread explains a lot of what's happened the last few weeks. Thanks for the info!
