    I don't know why...but I found this post really funny!

    The idea of someone itching to get back into the Sanctuary thread just to keep paying out on TLJ after posting in it "for months" just makes me laugh [face_laugh] especially because it's just down for the day haha

    I wish they just stuck with last years joke. I think that was the most memorable one since I joined.

    In several forums, I seem to have insufficient privileges to post. I posted earlier today, but now i don't seem to have privileges in the EpIX forum, among others...
    I've been trying to figure out what happened, or if I pressed something in error...

    I've also lost the ability to post but never said anything about Kelly Marie Tran? I've said that racists were terrible people who keep me up at night, multiple times, so can't fathom how anybody got that idea. All of my posts have been about how to fix the franchise from here on out and the signs of its numerical decline in box office / disc sales / toy sales / etc. Nothing racist even remotely, I hate those nuts and it's awful to be banned for supposedly being one of them.

    I presume that it's neutral and temporary - everyone has been blocked from posting in those forums for a week or two until things calm down.

    Oh that makes more sense. Weirdly I didn't even see those people on these boards, but was maybe in the wrong threads.

    I've read that.

    This is the post in full:

    "If you've even stepped a toe into New Films you've probably noticed how much it's turned into a hive of scum and villainy. We have two sides that are at each others throats on a daily basis. It was bad after the release of TFA and has only gotten worse since the release of TLJ. Some of it's due to emotions running high after a Saga release but the majority of it is just toxic users who simply want to scream at each other and make everyone miserable. We have the users who feel personally decimated by these films and feel everyone needs to know how much these films have personally assaulted them. If anyone is unfamiliar with this style of posting, there is a style of posting dedicated to literally and relentlessly decrying the treatment of Luke since the first rumors of his cameo in TFA surfaced. There's simply no way to have an actual conversation with such members. There's no discussable content to their posts. It's simply reiterating the same rants over and over and over. "TPTB ruined Luke's legacy. They hate him and wanted to ruin his life and accomplishments. Nothing they can do in IX will fix it. The franchise is dead to me." They can't be reasoned or bargained with. They just want to watch the forums burn. :p

    On the other side we have users who absolutely refuse to listen to any criticism of the films. The "these films are perfect and if you don't think so you're a blind idiot" type. They go far beyond simply being positive about the film. It's as if they are on a holy crusade to destroy the heathens that dare besmirch the ST. Then you have folks in the middle who just want to discuss the damn films.

    We've tried many things to alleviate some of the problems. The Sanctuary was a temporary measure to allow those who wanted to rant about TLJ a place to do so without the other side being able to swoop in and ruin their "fun." We've even created a couple new social threads in the hope that if the users got to know each other more they'd be less inclined to be so nasty to one another. That's another big problem we have. Just the amount of venom aimed not just at the movies but also at users from other users. And at the filmmakers, characters, actors, etc. Basically everyone and everything. And it's both sides doing it.

    So obviously it's beyond the point where we have anymore patience for this type of behavior. The harassment of Kelly Marie Tran was really the last straw. We'd hate these forums to be associated with that type of behavior. Obviously we can't fix the entire fandom but there's no reason why we can't make our little corner of it more enjoyable for our users. We'd like to take a hard stance on these extreme elements. If you can't discuss the films in a reasonable manner then go get yourself a blog to rant on. There's also no reason why users can't be civil to one another and make a point without being a complete jerk about it. We're open to any suggestions or thoughts from any of you too. We need to get a handle on this because we're starting to lose the sane users among us over it.

    This is going to return to being a DISCUSSION forum. Not a blog. Not the comments section of YouTube. Not your personal social media commentary soapbox. Discussion. That means that the days of an endless barrage of "Here is your daily reminder that TLJ sux and I hate everything about all of this and nothing anyone says will ever change my mind!!!! I'll remind you again in my next post!!!!" are over. Equally as over is our tolerance for "The films are perfect and there is nothing to discuss because there is absolutely nothing that could possibly be questioned or reconsidered about any of these superduperamazeballs films and anyone who does not see their perfect genius is a visionless plebeian" counterpoints.

    DISCUSSION.
    Read. Consider. Reply. Repeat.

    Or start a blog somewhere else. We'll help you get started. By banning you from here.

    We want everyone to stay and be involved. But we are no longer going to allow our forums to be a soundclash between 2 sides trying to outscream each other while everyone else in the middle is attempting to simply use the forums as intended.

    Talk to each other. Not at each other. More importantly, actually listen. Or be gone.
    This community will begin treating each other better or this community will have a lower population. Stop being terrible people toward the other people here.

    Love, the staff."



    I'm still completely unclear why I am unable to post in New Films and what I need to do to get posting privileges to new films restored? Or whether it's even possible to get posting privileges to New Films restored?

    Edit: OK, I'm up to speed - It might have been a good idea to explain within Chrous's post that the forums have been locked for 24hrs to force people to read the post as it really isn't clear what's happening.
