Captain Wet Blanket here.

There is currently a thread in the "Poi Moves" section which had just been pinned up by moderators which I believe has no business being in poi moves. Flash Fire's initial post indicates that it is appropriate for any staff/poi/misc toys posts to go there and they do. It is constantly bogged down with helpful, interesting non-poi related posts as Flash's initial post allows.

It was my understanding that the different sections were designed and implemented to allow each section to have it's own identity.

I fully support the existence of this thread as an "all toy moves learned" thread but not in the Poi Moves section.

Am I crazy in assuming that Poi Moves should be for Poi Moves?

I understand that Jugglers hate me because of the equipment I use. I have been cursed out and insulted for being a poi spinner on more than one occasion by other object manipulators. As someone who treats his poi spinning very independently of his other object manipulation, I'd like to see a purely poi section here on HoP. The thread is useful and wonderful, simply misplaced and now pinned in the wrong forum.

Love the Thread.
Save the Thread.
Move the Thread.

Allow us to have a Poi Moves section.

Hate Me,
Hurt Me,
NYC

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

This thread is about Poi isn't it? So its on the right place I think. Maybe it is about to change the main threads somehow. For example the main thread is Called Poi moves, but Poi is not just about moves.

The discussed thread is called "The Official HOP I just learned a new poi move thread" is that right? So why to do not let the thread be for new poi moves and make new ones for other objects. It sound to me simple. smile R

My money is on Dom.

I bet you 20 it was Dom.

Dom did it.

Blame Dom.

Not me.

I was nothing to do with making anything sticky.

Hasn't enough changed round here for 1 year? I don't fear change but I don't even recognise this place anymore.

I don't think changing this, whatever way it happens, is going to get people posting more about poi moves....maybe i'm wrong... shrug

This thread is very silly IMO. A few people have posted they don't like it, but they're most likely the ones who can be bothered to actually make a statement. The likely existing majority of people who're happy with the situation now have to put up with the change.

Jesus, I mean it's pretty limp if having to see a couple of posts about juggling is enough to put you off of posting in a thread.

well its done now spiral.



hopefully we will see the people in this thread, and any others that were put off by having 'other toy' posts in there, using the thread more now.



my personal prediction is it will just get a lot less attention frown

of course it has been made sticky now which should help it get more attention anyway.



so, now it seems more people would like it to stay where and how it was, would now be a good time to point out that the person that instigated this change has only posted in that thread about 10 times, half of those posts complaining about or making fun of jugglers posting in there and only one of which (back in 2002) lists a new poi move learnt...? umm wink



still, i'm just being bitchy now (hence the wink conceding that i am an anal motherf*cker) and nyc did say he wanted it to stay the same and only wanted it moved out of the poi section of the site.



the mods' made a decision which was to keep it where it is and make it poi-only and although it makes me sad to know i won't get to use what is one of my favourite threads on hop, i ain't about to start arguing with the guys who make this site what it is.



like i said, i'll post my new moves learnt in my intro and if anyone is interested in what i've been up to, they can look there smile

Well done. This has been the funniest thread I've read since Shibaki's "lost poi in a tree" thread.

The first 50 or so posts were hysterical.

I was always really inspired to see all the things everyone was working on, it helps fuel my own drive to see toher people caught up in it too. most especially coleman's juggling posts. i have no friggin clue what they mean but i loved it. i liked having the different art forms together. i liked posting about belly dancing moves because they are poi moves. so are my sword moves. water is the same in a bucket or a cup, it becomes the thing either way.
