I am referring to the ridiculous rule for social groups/threads in the JCC that is in place right now. If you check the sticky thread atop the JCC, you'll notice a list of users who are waiting for their turn to start a one month social thread. A close look at their request date to be in line to when they can have the social thread & you'll see that 6 months seems to be the average waiting time span. That means if any of you wants a JCC social thread, you would have to wait until December to get it! Anybody else think that's wayyyyy to long of a wait to have a social thread when the user wants it now? Many threads posted in the JCC are social in nature and to stifle the creation of social groups is a very stupid thing to do. Here is the offical line I always see from the Mod Squad (paraphrased of course): If the policy were to be lifted, there would simply be too much spam to deal with. Well, my question to the Mod Squad is this: how is that different from spam in any other JCC thread? What are you guys afraid of if the policy were to be lifted? This policy is my only gripe I have with the JC today; my gripes of the past (some of you may remember) were titles & colors for mods. It irrates the bloody hell out of me that social groups who had threads before this damn policy was made are allowed to keep them, while the rest of us have to wait 6 months, only to get a thread for a lousy month. How can it possibly be fair for those users who post in the Awesome Council, the Gold Age Cafe & the Blue Yoda society (just to name a few) to have their fun, while others get the hose? I can see this argument against already coming: "DT, users can always join those social groups ya know!" My point to refute that: Those social groups may not appeal to every user, they're gonna want to create or join a new social group that they're intrested in. I hope that this policy can be lifted soon, because it the more you think about, the more you realize that the policy is utter **** ****.
