I've been thinking about this for a while, without knowing exactly what to say.
I'm only saying this in general: I don't understand why people can't just leave a board or part of a fandom section and move on if they don't like it so much. I've been a fan of many things over the last close to 20+ years of being on the internet... game shows, soap operas, Doctor Who, Beyoncé, etc., and that involves going to message boards, websites, and places where I lose desire to keep posting or being involved in some way for one reason or another... and I just move on. Sure, if it's brought up between friends privately or broadly somewhere everywhere else in a while, I might say something as to why I left.
But the constant shade and dragging and pot shots aren't necessary. I haven't posted on a certain board in 13 years (not even naming what board it is or what genre it belongs to). It's not even a slight against them anymore, I just don't care for how things are run there. So I just prefer to lurk occasionally. I don't talk about it. I don't hold anything against any moderator or anyone who posts there. I just moved on because it's not that big of a deal.
There was also one other board I had visited and lurked regularly at (and for the sake of this discussion and to clarify immediately, it was NOT a game show board and no familiar people in the fandom posted anything there of this vernacular) but casual racism tended to rear its ugly head too often and nothing was done about it, and it made me just leave.
I don't have any ideas at the top of my head right now about here, but if someone's really passionate about making a place better, I don't know why they can't just DM a mod privately and respectfully with their grievances and say "This is what I would like to see more of" or something of that vernacular.
Welcome to Game Show Paradise. Keep the posts at a PG rating. NO SPOILERS. Thanks, and enjoy your stay!
gameshowmaniac: this year has been pure feces

jean74: Can't believe this year has flown by fast? Really a lot has happened. All years must go by fast and before you know it they end asap.

phimat37: Yes, basically thats what I meant to say. But that's well said, I agree.

Mandoli: Can we all agree that political talk doesn't even belong on the forum PERIOD? Talk about what the forum topic is about, and let's not verbally shit on people.

phimat37: I don't care what you are when you come here, just keep the politics out of it. There are probably dozens of political message boards and social media groups out there. This is a game show message board and the shout box should be fun and friendly.

phimat37: Yeah, um, I want whats best for the country and the world too. (Just look at my Twitter feed) A shout box on a game show message board is not the place to do it. Political discussion just asks for trouble. Take to PM or social media if you want to debate

Mandoli: If I have to clean up after a fight with potential name calling, do you think I'm going to be happy?

S_SweepFan3: I'm sorry for wanting the best for this country and this world.

Mandoli: I agree with phimat37. No politics talk. We're not here to talk about which party is better.

aaaa: Trump had no involvement in the production of Trump Card in 1990, it was just taped at his casino, the former Trump Castle in Atlantic City. Fiedler and Berlin were the producers, with Bill Carruthers directing at least some episodes.

phimat37: Maybe you'll see a Biden ad on GSN as well. But I think we should keep the shout box as nonpolitical as possible.
Jun 10, 2020 12:52:24 GMT -5
phimat37: It's not that GSN is "supporting" him. I've seen sports channels run his ads in the past, even the "mainstream" news channels like CNN and MSNBC run them, or at least I've seen them on MSNBC. They have a decision not to air them as we've seen
Jun 10, 2020 12:51:43 GMT -5
S_SweepFan3: I'm really disappointed that GSN keeps airing Donald Trump ads. Why are they supporting this poor excuse for a human being? This country needs to move on from Trump, especially given everything that's happened with him as president.

ppaulson93: The firework game I'm thinking of wasn't FizGig. I have no idea what it could've been! I know I always used to call it "pyroteknica" but I think I was joking and that wasn't likely wasn't the real name. Thanks for the help though!

phimat37: Clicked on the link for FizGig, that takes me back lol

Mandoli: Happy Memorial Day! It's a little different this year, because of social distancing. I know, do the best you can under these circumstances.
