Stop removing legitimate issues.

Zelox Quo 4 years ago updated by Varka (Spokesdragon) 4 years ago 1

There have been two, completely legitimate topics, that have been removed by FN staff.


One was for the removal of all artworks that depict violence against women, the other was for the removal of all furry pornography.


Unfortunately since the acceptance of a large influx of external individuals who are not a part of the FN community to vote for one particular topic. Other somewhat related topics have been censored.


It seems, that to stop censorship, FN is practicing censorship.


I would like these two topics to be reinstated, and allow the community to vote on them as is appropritate for this forum.

Heya,


Thank you for bringing up these concerns - you're right; those two related topics had merit, and should have been directly addressed instead of being removed outright. I'd like to have these topics reinstated so we can address them appropriately - as there are numerous concerns in a similar vein that we'd like to get responses to as well. It's unfortunate that we outright deleted both of these in our hurry to get things back under control on the support section of the site, but hindsight is always 20/20. We'll have a better solution in place in the future.


Once things have calmed down a little, tempers are running a little cooler, and we've had a chance to draft up a full, detailed response to them, we'll make a reply in the two following threads, relating to banning/unbanning types of content, and address the concerns there. Sorry we didn't make this clear from the outset.


Threads are here: https://support.furrynetwork.com/topics/1124-ban-content-type-here-from-furry-network/ and here: https://support.furrynetwork.com/topics/1125-unban-content-type-here-from-furry-network/


Separately, I think that the support system is not suited to contentious issues with "sides". It's great for mainly technical problems where all participants are judging comments on the basis of their technical merit, but it descends quickly into a "battle" between warring sides - something which is notorious for breaking down into name-calling rather rapidly - for more contentious issues such as site policy. I'll be consulting with the other members of the team to see if we can find a better medium for encouraging and facilitating feedback on policy-type stuff.


Thanks,


Varka
