Membership fees will give dicks who have paid for them more of a "well I paid to be here so I can say what I like" kind of attitude

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Basically there is no perfect solution, but IMHO when the big man (Ric) says something, we should all listen.

Lets face it guys & gals, this community exists because of him.

I do feel it is appropriate to show our appreciation in the form of a donation (Be it recognised / public or not) to compensate him for all his hard work & time. To me, that is just common courtesy :)

This, it's not about dicks and paying (though I'm sure some of you do :P) it's about thanking Ric for his time spent minding the children and covering his costs.

Whilst I always thought this was one of the more courteous forums - they'll always be moments / or individuals that will be inappropriate. I personally think this forum is excellent and would sadly miss it if Ric pulled the pin.

Unfortunately, keyboard warriors are multiplying quickly. Others forums where I participate the situation is much worse and the forums involved are worse for it.

Any chance of including a swear word filter?
I know we speak it .... But to read the "F" word every second paragraph is a bit distracting..... Emotions aside.
Just a suggestion.

How about we all "repay" Ric by doing what he asks and keeping the rude and ignorant posts to a minimum. Simple.

+1 - We really should appreciate and honor Ric for his work here - and if anything being courteous is the very LEAST we can do.

And i wouldn't be against a membership fee of some sort if it helps.

Ric,

With several members indicating they would not be opposed to an annual fee, why don't we run a pole on it? Even if it is just a token voluntary one to start with to help balance the books.

Im all for it and agree that everyone needs to behave in order to have everything running smoothly. I personally havent been a member of this club for a long time considering the recent purchase of my Gen4, however i have been a member of the RSLC for over 5 years, along with some others on here. I have learnt a great deal and consider myself quite knowledgable to an extent in all things Subaru. Getting hands on will do that. (Trying not to blow my own horn here).

So far my experience here has been of a good one, although not everyone will agree on things as it is a forum, its just the way it is with many opinions and experiences.

However i have a bit of an issue in regards to the proposed bashing the "report button" 3-strikes out, when you dont agree with someone and find it offensive.

Recently i was involved in a discussion here in which i had extensive knowledge and had done everything in the book myself ect. The problem was while trying to give sound advice and do's and dont's, it was seen as a personal attack on someones ideas. So if old mate had hammered the "report" button in protest to the information i was giving, does this even get investigated? I hardly think moderators have time and patience to decide whos right and wrong. Let alone want to play mediator between people.

I just dont want to see something like this abused and people being removed without just cause. I think the most important thing here is to just be mature about it and do your own personal resolving, it shouldnt be the job of moderators to have to do this. Obviously every now and then you'll get trolls who just want to stir shit and removing them is a given.

Not everyone will get along with everyone else and share the same opinions ect but surely we're all mature enough to sort out our own issues, again, it shouldnt be a moderators job to do that.


Jim,
I agree with you, if i am correct your talking about comments you made to that bloke building the EJ25 with the B4 twin turbo manifold setup looking for 200+KW ATW. Nothing you said in that thread was abusive or denegrating and whilst the other bloke felt that it was unfair critisism I think most others who read it would have taken it for what it was, been there tried that, learn from my mistakes.

I think the 3 strikes rule has to be restricetd to those sort of comments that basically say "your all a bunch of F#$@ wits and I don't care what you think or say" or anything threatening. I mean the only point of being on this forum is to put forth your opinions or knowledge about a common subject or in turn to learn something from others who have done it before.

If you don't care what others think why are you here????????

I also agree with DJC, all Ric really wants is for some of us to grow up and treat each other with a bit of respect.
