    I wouldn’t vote for you if you where the last candidate on earth. You have regular displayed your inability to keep a cool impartial head and just dived in to start a flame war in the almost all of threads I’ve seen you in.

    I say we’d take care of about 75% of our problems if we do the following:

    • Ban everyone under 13. [/*]

    Anybody extremely sheltered younger than 13 shouldn’t be on this forum. I’m willing to bet you just about all of them will have no clue about anything we say. Why would you want a million extraneous threads on “lolz wut is light flicker”? Besides, most 13 year old kids shouldn’t even be on the internet. They should be riding a bike, reading a book, and educating themselves instead of wasting their precious, underdeveloped neurons chatting with frightening people like me and Revmen. When I was 12 I wasn’t allowed on internet forums. I went to kids.yahoo.com and played some stupid tetris game while munching on doritos. I don’t know what kids do nowadays. The standards are way lower than they once were. There should be censors for little kids from going on internet forums.

    Kids should be online only with their kid friendly-browsers that censor big scary places like phpbb forums and porn websites where they encounter pedophiles. The fact that we promote little children to forums where anybody should be able to say anything is ludicrous. We don’t want these kids’ mind corrupted. What happens when their parents find their kids reading up on whether watching lesbians roughin’ it up is moral in the LD forum? I surely don’t want parents sending me emails, first that would be pathetic having a parent contact you over something online, second of all that would be a huge pain in the ass I MEAN REAR!!! to deal with.

    There, problem solved.

    Tim, I think you should run for MoD.

    So you would prefer anarchy?

    How do you intend to do that? That’d just force these kids to lie as well.

    My brother is 11, and has been getting into brickfilming. He’s extremely intelligent and would know what light flicker is. 10-13 year olds aren’t total idiots (Well, they are…but they aren’t unintelligent.) but they shouldn’t be exposed to adult content.

    But is it our place to restrict them from pursuing hobbies, and developing friendships with other people of similar interests, and showing off their work? Discouraging younger kids from coming on brickfilms is just going to cause the art to die out eventually. And you surely can’t go to every child’s house and enforce the whole “go ride a bike!” theory. (Btw, if you ever do run for MoD — that’d be an awesome campaign slogan.)

    I don’t think there’s “good solution” for a dilemma like this…

    Remember, Trill, this is Tim you’re responding to.

    I think banning is completely against the community principles of this site. I find the people running for MoD positions and using banning as a positive thing in their campaign to be poor choices. We’re supposed to accept people and guide them through this fun (and at first, hard) hobby. We shouldn’t be shutting people out due to a lack of tolerance or patience!

    This is why I like the notions that brianfast is presenting, but I think that he can craft his plan a little better. Posting contradictory, one-sentence answers is not going to get you elected, brian, and there’s no denying that being arrogant about your campaigning isn’t going to attract any fans, either.

    In short: every dozen has its bad eggs, but that shouldn’t matter. By accepting all and guiding people, we could have much more favorable outcomes than not accepting most of the people who come to this site!

    The points that brian brings up are too minor to be tackled by one person in a leadership position… these are more like guidelines for the community. Everybody has to chip in and try their hardest to be patient and helpful. Brian’s ideas are insightful, but his approach is pathetic. Take what he is saying and do it yourself, brickfilmers. Vote for someone with bigger and better things at stake.

    -Dave, who thinks that this “bad egg” shouldn’t be even considered for any Minister positions, anyway.

    I totally agree, Dave. I’m not sure who you were responding to – but Tim and I were both (I believe) more talking about the appropriateness of some of the content on the forum, and how it could be improved, because at the moment there are several things that I would be horrified if my 11 year old brother saw.

    Which is honestly a shame, because he’s just developing an interest in brickfilming, and he’d gain a lot from being on the forums.

    As far as banning goes, I believe it has it’s place. I don’t think we should ban every annoying member — but after a member has proved after a significant amount of ctime that they have no intent of changing, or leaving, and are bothering contributing members, I don’t think it’s unrealistic at all to ban them.

    Yeah, I really don’t know who I was responding to. Just ranting is all.
