Posted: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.

Hurt Me,

I strongly disagree.

Cole and Bluecat still have stunningly hot girlfriends and I have none.

What the hell is up with that and what is the administration of HoP going to do about solving this problem?

Unfortunately, that doesn't translate to American. Jugglers rank on the uncoolometer of Amercian culture somewhere between mimes and the freaky guy in High School who wears the cape. I'd be better off collecting comic books. wink

And yeah, jugglers in the US are almost considered as creepy as mimes or those hobos in trenchcoats wearing nothing underneath...

Posted:Im not happy about this. I enjoyed reading what the jugglers were up to and now if all their achievements are spread throughout the site I will not be able to keep track of wot their getting up to.

:/

and I think that posting 'I just learned the under over hyper 7beat inverse crosser wrap' is just as elitist and confusing as me posting 'I just learned the 531 mills'.

I think there should be an all toys 'i just learned a new move thread' and a 'I just learned a new staff move' and a 'I just learned a new fire hoop move' and an 'I just learned a new flaming unicycle clown move' etc etc...

think a little bit outside of your own circle guys. Is it that hard to skim teh jugglers? or are you just unhappy that they seem to be learning all sorts of things you arent?

no it wouldn't. the thread we were discussing was created for posting your achievements, whatever the prop and was only misleading if you didn't bother to read the first post.



I guess you didnt' catch the sarcasm... I'll use the smiley next time..


Written by: coleman

decision made, everybody's happy smile



I dunno.. I thought the idea was to keep the thread as it is elsewhere.. thus keeping the diverse thread a diverse thread.. and just start a new one for the poi section that was poi front to finish.. that way any discussions or comments from the orginal thread are still contributed in that thread.. cohesion and all..

but whatever the mods think.. I was never voicing to argue (for once).. I just thought some of nyc's comments were taken out of context..

again.. None of those are the points being made..

pt- diverse new move threads should be in a diverse section
pt- new move thread is diverse
conclusion- new move thread should be in diverse section
bonus- if necessary a poi moves thread could be made in the poi mvoes section that contained only poi moves.. (however I feel that if the new moves thread is in a diverse category why bother with a poi moves)

This kind of talk should be saved for social chat tongue



So do you want to ban siteswap in the thread, or ban anything but poi in the thread, or move the thread?



moving it seems the least disagreeable option to me, and i still disagree.

Posted:dom made a decision and i'm happy going with that.

however it then got confusing as josh (another mod/admin type person) would like to see the thread continue as it has before...

i say if you care still jonnny, ask miss flashfire - as she was the mod that started the thread, i guess she has final say in what happens to it (and if it is to change as dom said, the original post and title should really be changed to reflect that).

who made it sticky anyway?
that would be good to know i guess...

Actually, I'm kind of over poi. I'm all about the plate spinning now.

Anybody wanna post some new plate spinning moves? I just got my Beard Aluminums (Or Aluminiuminoum for you UKers) and those puppies ROCK!

Posted:hmm, i'll sit by my 'poi moves', 'staff moves', and 'other stuff moves'. it would still be pretty easy for anyone to read up about juggling, or diabolo-ing, or plate spinning, as all of those would be under one thread. poi and staff (two of the spinning/fire parts that seem to be the most predominant), would be separate, letting people tlak about new moves they learnt, without the confusion and/or conflict of juggling, bellydancing and other stuff in there.
