[quote=“Mage, post:1, topic:1451”]I had a thought.
It would be nice to have a forum that is only available for product owners.
For example, if one had the invocation program, they could be a part of that forum - etc.
That might keep things private amongst those that had the material. Just an idea.[/quote]
I thought about that. It was the original intention for this forum. But I don’t think it’s wise to isolate and separate everyone.
For example, let’s say a really good and smart magician gets one program, but doesn’t get another. Does that mean he can’t access certain boards to share his expertise, just because he didn’t get the product?
Seems stupid to restrict someone who could provide help from participating.
Also, I like the idea of letting newcomers see the more advanced magicians discus what they are learning in programs, because it gives them courage and confidence to step up and try new things.
Plus, running two forums - or having locked boards - becomes too complicated, and makes the registration and moderation a labor intensive mess.
But to my knowledge, in the 1+ years that the forum has been active, we’ve had at most 3 users who are ideologically opposed to our stances, or just plain stupid.
That’s hardly a problem, nor is it against the rules.
And yes, Sunas is retarded and takes it up the ass from demons, but I think it’s an exaggeration to say he’s “wreaking havoc”.
He’s settled into being just a normal member, after taking a vicious beating from all of us. Now he’s just a contrarian. Ignore him.
Beyond all of this, I’ve managed to secure the forum to such an extent that we’ve not had a single shred of spam for several months.
I’m proud of that. We definitely have the most productive magick forum in the world - as far as I know!
