nahh, they are a very insular little group. And most of the board seems to consist of Atomic slimeing his way around the girls. Or thowing his 'comunity' weight around.

They say even less there than here!

the promised essay is on its way tho.... its just very long.

So he is. No lurking here! biggrin

I don't make a habit of addressing criticisms on other boards generally, coz it's really more time than it's worth. I also don't think cross-forum bitching serves much purpose. I'm gonna make an exception here though, coz there's some fairly serious points been raised that really need clearing up....

1. Ravehead has already made a serious attempt to get UK Hippy shut down by trying to instigate a troll attack from another forum. Now y'know, there's forums out there that I don't like and that I disagree with the way in which they're run.... but I don't set out to destroy them. I just don't post there. It's really simple. Nobody is forcing anyone to post on UK Hippy. If you don't like the place, then don't join or don't hang around. I'm not sure what's so difficult about that concept. We're a moderated community with rules, and if you don't like those rules, then that's fine. I respect your opinion and your right to hold that opinion. What that opinion doesn't give you is the moral right to attempt to destroy something just because you disagree with the way it's run. That's a little sociopathic.

2. It ain't a dictatorship, despite the willingness of some to hurl that word around. It's co-admined by two people, and all decisions regarding the running of the site are taken in conjunction with the mods. All bans are discussed with the mods except in extreme circumstances, and even then, they're discussed after the event.

3. The issue with the image that someone posted is getting blown out of all proportion. We watermark all images uploaded to our gallery to deter people from using our site for hotlinking, without us needing to take the draconian step of disabling hotlinking entirely. It's certainly not intended as a declaration of copyright or ownership. As soon as it was brought to our attention that there was a problem with one of the images that A MEMBER had uploaded, we were more than happy to remove it as soon as we knew which image it was. If there's a problem with any other images, we'll be happy to remove those as well. We had to remove the whole image because we don't keep an un-watermarked copy. The watermarking takes place during the uploading process.

5. I'm not sure what else we could've done. Most've the delays in contacting us were the result of measures we put in place to prevent trolling after Ravhead instigated an attack from another forum.

6. There was a bug with the contact form, and that's now been resolved.

7. Ravehead talks about bannings, but as far as I'm aware, he's the only person who we've banned in connection with this whole incident apart from people who were actually trolling us.

8. I admit I'm a serial flirt. eek

9. Just worth mentioning one more time... we're a happy community with a lot of people who enjoy participating. If you don't like the place, don't join in. It's really simple. That's no excuse for wrecking it for other people. Which is, frankly, a little childish. I won't be encouraging our members to come over here and retaliate.

Oh, and this thread seems to have picked us up a lot of members from HoP, so it's been a little counterproductive. rolleyes

Anyway, that's all I'm gonna say. I don't think it's productive for me to sit here arguing the rights and wrongs with people. If ya don't like UK Hippy, then don't join. If ya like it, come over and have fun. Despite the popular myths, we only ban people who're disrupting the site and causing trouble. Apologies to any HoP members who've been caught in the crossfire. Have a nice day. biggrin

Hello and welcome to HoP! biggrin

why not make an intro thread and tells a little about yourself?

Do you like pink?

HoPers always assimilate everyone, its something to do with the comunity spirit here. We had a troll invasion too, and we assimilated them! I think your forum can but benift from a little fire driven madness...

if peaple wanna look, id sum it up like this, UkHippy is a bit like out social chat and discussion forums, but expanded into more topics, and you cant be so boystreous there frown but they have some rather nifty php... smile And they really need some members, weve got 41874 Registered Users, im sure we can spare a few!

T wave

p.s. I just looked, There are 27 registered and 126 anonymous users online.
Max users online was 822 @ 03/06/06 05:44 AM, thats amazing! eek

Do you mean that you feel like a panda, as in if I touch you you'll be all fluffy and soft or do you mean it in the sense of "I feel like having a cup of tea.".....



If it's the second make sure you get the pandas consent first, because they have mighty big claws to swat you with if you don't! wink ubblol





As for ukhippy.com, Like I said before I don't find them any different from most other forums. They have different ways of doing things that this forum, but then this forum has different ways of doing things than other forums. For the most part I've found them to be friendly and welcoming. A few things that have been done or said have taken me aback a bit, but that happens here too, so I'd sum them up as a fairly nice bunch of people.
