Wow.  Lots of changes.  Haven't been here in awhile

Just started reading this thread. 

Second commenter.  BANNED. Yikes

Hey SD, not seen you in ages, how are you doing?

Working.

Getting the house painted. Twice.  Martha Stewart's 'Morning Fog' color makes the house look like a giant wintogreen colored Lifesaver!  No  So I'm also weeping at my bare coffers 'cause I didn't budget on having to get a giant Lifesaver re-painted.

Reading other gossip.

Spring cleaning.

The Lifesaver is a 100+ year old historical artifact (it decays every minute) and its a bit of a fixer-upper, so I'm doing that too!

Trying to get into shape....

Well they don't actually. You seem determined to instigate some sort of personal and angry exchanges. It's boring and silly. Go back to dishing. It's what we are here for. I'm sure you're a nice person. Let's meet the real you
Are u taking to me?


Yes
I am sorry but how exactly was I trying to instigate such responses?

Wasn't there all sorts of rumours on this board?
Wasn't there posters complaining about favouritism or other posers being extra friendly with each others?

Weren't there posters upset about not being selected or felt left out?
And yes I believe it's because of dominant gender dynamic of this board. I don't see men getting upset about not being picked to observe a board or that some of them have different bonding with different folks etc. You can take it however you want to and I have no idea how this makes me not a nice poster.

I don't see how you were either. Take it easy Jonathan.

It is funny how some poster can get everyone riled up. That german newbie, bless her bitchy heart was really good.  Spiteful That was like watching fuel poured over a fire and wham big blaze.

I've said it before and I will say it again... the incorporation of any new feature that makes RoyalDish a better place for all users is fine by me. Quite honestly, in the near week and a half since Helpers were designated, the tone of the board has changed from hostile to hospitable.

But, then again, because we are such a diverse community, including our history with the board, I will acknowledge and respect that as my perspective, which is not neccessarily shared by all.

I've seen on a couple of other forums a thread where the admins declare bans and warnings (or users muted) given and give a one sentence explanation as to why for example "User01: Two weeks ban for talking trash about other users (sometimes user names are told to clarify the decision). This is so that there wouldn't be rumours circulating and bad blood about anything. When people know, there's no more questions. What do you think about this?
I don't get what you are trying to say.

I don't get why this thread has gone 21 pages long,I don't get what the big deal is about this new system. I didn't like the previous idea of some selective posters getting together and dish about other posters in some sort of secret thread. Looks like Maria and Thomas found a new solution to this problem as they need help with managing board, and right so, they decided to tell everyone what they are doing and let everyone know who will be the board helpers and what will be their role.  I am fine by this because I don't expect moderators to sit all day long to manage this giant board and now there is no secrecy like before. I also trust moderators won't tolerate unnecessary bitching behind other posts back by board helpers . If I see any of these board helper s not following the rules I will report then to moderators and ifI feel they are being favoured by the moderators I will take this up here and share it with everyone.

What I an trying to say is that if you have issues their is a civil way of resolving them and taking shots at each other is not the way to do it. I don't like the tone of a lot posters accusing others of all sorts of things and yes I don't care if these shots are directed towards old or board helpers and not on me or new posters. I just don't like this attitude and atmosphere. I didn't like the old r secret board for the very same reason because I didn't like anyone dishing on others and I don't like it now when things are getting personal for older ones.

RD is supposed to be fun and entertaining for me. IMO it's very easy to use, you come, you dish on royals, you don't dish on other posters, if you think anyone is out of line report it to moderator, if you don't like any particular poster or their posts use ignore button. It's very simple to me and not rocket science but these personal attacks are getting worse and it feels like high school to me irrespective of who is being targeted. I don't know about anyone else but I am too old and tired for t this kind of childish attitude. If this goes on I Will also think about about posting here because I really don't want to  join a board where a bunch of strangers take shots at each others. RD is losing it's essence and identity with this kind of behaviour. I have no idea why this thread has been dragged along so many pages and this is not good at all for this board IMO.

Yes just me 21 pages is around 20 pages too long at this stage. In essence very few comments are reported as tones of posts along with different languages and style of writing are mainly well understood. But obviously a handful ,probably more than I even can guess because anyone can report a post to T/M .but with different time lines and posts been added 24 /7 it's a kinda safety net to catch a post that can derail a thread easy enough. We all come on here for a diss , a laugh, a bit of banter and yes it should be all directed at the royals, who couldn't give tuppence thought to us.
