The Evolution of the Planet

I think to understand the nature of the problem that exists here today it is important to reflect on how we arrived here. For those that donít know, ChiefsPlanet was created to get around the vast restrictions placed on posters in KC Star. It was a huge success right off the bat and we were rolling. IMO those first months we ended up with a lot of really great posters and only a couple bad ones. As time went on CP has attracted more and more people who love not having restrictions and unlimited subjects to discuss which was great other than the fact that that many thought those threads were polluting the forum with people arguing all the time over subjects that didnít even involve football. I posted a poll asking the membership if they wanted another forum for off topics and it passed by a landslide and the people who run this BB were gracious enough to create it and DC was born.

That has worked for a long time now with this almost no holds barred format. Once again this type of forum has been attractive to people who love the open debate that can take place here but unfortunately over many years it has attracted more and more trolls who like using the structure here to do nothing more than try to get under posters skin and will do anything in order to do that. Itís also allowed posters like frazod to thrive here being the poster child of bad psychology. Talk about no boundaries with a strong desire to bust in others and dump. This has attracted more in the like, can anyone say KCN? The trolls have grown as well in this forum in a kind of perfect storm way. What we have today is a forum saturated with trolls and posters with the psychology of a 13 year old psychopathic girl on her first period. IMO this is costing us many potential good posters who would make this a better place to come to and has also seen us lose many quality long term posters. To complicate matters the moderators that reside here are fine with posters posting anything they want about you and your family members short of a racist remark heaven forbid just as long as you donít do it to them which is now creating two different cultures that exist within the planet. If they think that it is hostile now they havenít seen anything yet should this persist.

IMO at this point nothing short of a cleansing designed to rid the planet of trolls and bloody vaginas that have no control is exactly what this place needs to regain its former greatness. There was a time when I posted a thread about a family member and their battle with cancer and asked for prayers and support. Today there is no chance of me doing something like that here as I have no desire to see somebody post the nastiest thing they can think of at that point. For the old timers it should be easy to see the huge difference in where we were and where we are now. My 2 cents.

This is so true. If there is one huge difference it's the number of people constantly calling for bannings. It's like phognet.

Most of the people here have never experience a fully merged CP so I don't think that's a very good test. All I know is that you got your wish, you're still not happy, and you're still blaming other people despite being in the middle of it yourself.

Meh, I still LOVE this place. I don't post nearly as often, but the enjoyment this site brings to me hasn't lessened. It's just different - mainly because we have a massive amount of members vs the early years of this board. It's all good, my brothers. It's just a message board that subs as a bar. Stop worrying about the small stuff, and belly up and have another!

ELE!

It was all intelligently designed by Austin Chief. Where we are now as Chiefs Planeteers is exactly where Austin Chief wants us to be, and that's good enough for me. He has a plan for all of us, and if we trust in him and his mods, we will live in a glorious community, where Drafturbator and True Fan alike will live in peace and harmony

Exactly.

It was like an initiation. You figured out quick who had thick skin and the ability to debate using stats and evidence, and those who didn't/couldn't.

As a n00b, I wanted to be part of these kick-ass discussions and learn more about the game - so it motivated me to do my homework before just randomly throwing out some bullshit.

You certainly don't see that anymore.
