Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Response to Paper Roses (Original post)

Thu May 17, 2012, 09:10 PM

35. Dear Paper Roses, as a GD host, I would prefer to lock this thread, since it doesn't meet the SOP

of GD, which is "Discuss politics, issues, and current events... No whining about DU."

While I do not want to insult you by saying that you are "whining about DU", I will point out that you are clearly not discussing "politics, issues, and current events." I also want to point out that discussions about DU itself (which includes "bemoaning" the current cost of purchasing a Star) properly belong in the Help and Meta-Discussion forum.

I brought your post to the Host Forum looking for consensus before proceeding with a lock. While 4 out of 6 hosts weighing in so far agree that your OP belongs in H&M, only 2 hosts (including me) wanted to lock it.

I am posting this to give fair notice to other DUers that this sort of OP does not meet the SOP of GD, and that similar posts may very well be subject to being locked and being asked to re-post to H&M.

I am sorry that you can't afford a star, and I have advocated since the very beginning of DU3 that DUers be allowed to donate stars to others who can't afford them. I will continue to advocate for this - in the Help & Meta-Discussion forum.
