This may come as something of a shock to a few of you, but the YJCC (Your Jedi Council Community) is not standing on such solid ground these days. Unbeknownst to many users, there are cascades of threads and posts deleted every day in such short time that few register them. It's getting to be such a burden that we were forced to hire more mods - straining our already full team - and make sacrifices on threads that grew too fast for even our abilities. While many users try to positively contribute, the presence of socks (calculated at one for every 8 regular users) in the YJCC ruins the experience for many, causing even more spamming and trolling. We do our best to combat them, but with dynamic IPs, we can only do so much. Socks really are a detriment to the JCC and they (and their owners) are prime targets in our new campaign against spam and trolling. We appreciate user input on the identity of several unknown socks that will be made known at a later time after we've compiled the list. The YJCC has always been a place of conflict and problem, but the time may be coming when we have to evaluate its future. Is it really a necessary place on these boards? It's a bunch of spamming and trolling tied together by a rag-tag group of posters (who we'll let keep their anonymity - for now) hell bent on keeping that place afloat. We must take action. I feel it best to inform you before we do anything drastic to the forum, but you must realize that the future of the YJCC is not set in stone. We in the Administration are considering serious action taken against several users and the board as a whole. I hesitate to say how extreme this would be; a panic is not needed. Now, I don?t want to give you the wrong impression here. We want you to help us, to help contribute positive posts, to give a little bit of effort to make quality instead of quantity. There is something to be said for the user with only a few hundred posts, but that are all of a high caliber. We mods are as much to blame for letting this farce continue as some users are of perpetrating these problems we face. Decisions need to be made with you right beside us. But regardless, something must be done. Even if it means we erase it and start over. See last post.
