    Re: What's the sudden big deal of Hijacking threads?

    deletions lead to screams of censorship and then we all have to spend an evening focused on that topic. I can see why the mods get a bit frustrated with that solution.

    If its meddlesone chatter then dump it. If its a valid conversation, yet doesnt fit the topic just split it off.

    I think that points are not warranted for hijacking. just an opinion of mine... not nessesarily the right thing to do.

    I have been told in no uncertain terms that once you start a thread you open the pandoras box and you cant controll the direction of a conversation.

    that is the confusing part for me, I guess.

    Re: What's the sudden big deal of Hijacking threads?

    it is annoying when people treat jub as though its an instant messenger but thankfully most of that is kept in that f&g section.... but the more moderatin' being done the more dull this place is becoming. lately you almost need amphetimines just to get through page 1 of the new posts.
    and it hurts with every heartbeat......

    JD, it seems to me that you are asking what type of hijacking is, or isnít acceptable, not how to deal with curtailing hijacking. Am I wrong?

    Re: What's the sudden big deal of Hijacking threads?

    There is a huge difference between hijacking a thread and making it a personal message board. I don't deny hijacking a few threads, and I don't deny participating in a few hijacks, but the hijacks are not personal messages between myself and another Jubber. They are there for the entertainment of everyone who cares to read them.

    Last night, my febble, untechnical brain finally figured out how to use the multi-quote system. Until then, I would open the thread and the response in 2 different windows so I could copy and paste quotes from several posts and combine them into the same response.

    It annoys me more to see post after post by someone who responds to several different comments in several consecutive posts than to see the occasional hijack.

    (Multi-quotes are simple when you know how to do it. You click the Multi-quote icon in each individual post you wish to quote and make sure it turns red. When you have selected all the posts you wish to quote, you then click the 'Quote' button and insert your responses between the quoted comments.)

    What annoys me most, though, is this new trend of posting a response above a quoted comment. What is that all about except to be 'different' and to get noticed? It's annoying a hell to read a post and have no idea what is being talked about only to scroll down and find the quote beneath it, then have to read the quote, scroll back up and read the comment again so it makes sense.

    It's annoying to see entire (and sometimes lengthy) posts quoted only to respond to a single comment in it, or to say "I agree." Or a posting of several different photos are quoted in their entirety only to respond, "Nice photos."

    For goodness sake, delete all that extra stuff and leave only the portion of the quote you wish to comment on! Have some consideration for those people who are still on dial-up or don't have Speedy Gonzales inside their CPU.

    My point is (after all this) is that there are many things more annoying and serious that the occasional innocent hijacks. The Mods can't be everywhere and do everything all the time, but if warnings can be issued for a single 'off-topic' comment, and if hijacks are deleted, they should clean up some of that other garbage as well.

    However, that is not practical, nor should it be expected. The best way to keep threads clean and tidy is not to litter them in the first place.

    Most of all, though, there should be some consistancy. Those Jubbers who are more popular should be treated just like the rest. Favouritism does nothing except generate ill feelings amongst the rest.

    Now that I have dutifully hijacked this thread into a personal rant, I shall cease my rant and leave you to your ponderings.

    You may be on to something. I've seen quite a few posts on JUB that I wished had highlighted in white in their entirety!!!!

    To you they are entertainment for others, for some they are an intrusion into a themed conversations. Reasonable minds may differ.

    Dutifully hikacked? LOL perhaps only a tad.

    I agree, Mel, but our little 'hijacks' rarely last more than a few posts before we stop them. I have seen entire threads being hijacked by two people over multiple pages. That is not an intrusion. That is a 'commandeering'.

    I have had my own threads hijacked. Heck, I've even hijacked my own threads. I think it should be up to the original poster to decide if it should be dealt with instead of leaving it up to the Moderators. If I am having a party in my home and someone is disrupting a few other people, it should be up to me to decide if I should ask that person to leave. It shouldn't be up to the Dee-Jay. See what I mean?

    The only way to really deal with them is to prohibit them entirely, and that is impossible to do. I, for one, would be very hesitant to post a response in case it is taken as a hijack'. I mean, I've often read something and a memory has been sparked and I post it. It may not be on topic, but it is important enough to me to share it with everyone. My only other option would be to start an entirely new thread simply to make a single comment which would lead no-where.

    Re: What's the sudden big deal of Hijacking threads?

    Neil, most people won't complain to a mod about hijacks in their threads. There's no doubt about this. First off, the original poster might not have read that much of their own thread, or may have read it but just doesn't want to contact a mod or admin. That's sorta human nature. How many times have you gone into a restuarant and was a little unhappy with the food and asked to talk to a manager? Most people never do that.

    If we could have just a little more respectfulness to the original poster of threads, I'd be so happy. It's also disheartening to see one or two people dominate an entire thread - just as you've said. It becomes like a personal argument that no-one wants to interrupt. Although in those cases, it's often an on topic argument. Still disheartening, but not really what I was talking about with thread hijacks.

    If the original poster hijacks his own thread, then that's a horse of a different color, and my attitude is who cares?

    I think I need more coffee. I hadn't even thought of the 'restaurant' analogy.

    However, if it's any consolation, I try very hard to hijack only threads of people who I know won't mind, because they know I won't mind if they hijack my threads. I think that might be an important difference as well.

    Some of the best and funniest threads are the ones that get hi-jacked! Jake's "Queerlings" thread just took off into outer space and was a ton of laughs! I suppose, though, that the mods are more accomodating of hi-jacks when the nature of the thread is frivolous to begin with.

    Re: What's the sudden big deal of Hijacking threads?

    since only about six people responded to JD's post in a day and half of them really dont care about the hijack issue, i assume this is just dead in the water.

    five or six out of thousands does not make a consensus for serious action, IMO.

    We do need to be respectfull of everyones threads and needs, but clearly this is a tempest in a teapot.

    people just seem to not give a good hoot one way or the other.

    As Sb's comment indicated, as well as a few others, more people seem to be more concerned with heavy moderation than hijacking at this point.

    and then (sniffle ) there are other little threads , little threads created only to bring delight and joy into an otherwise bleak world which are not only never replied to in any meaningful way (sniffle ) but aren't even HIJACKED by anyone.

    Some really good threads that no one even bothers to reply to could at least be HIJACKED on occasion, you know.

    well, its true about the screaming that happens when posts are deleted...so i will withdraw my suggestion about just deleting hijacks.

    but i agree. hijacks just doesn't warrant points. And honestly in my opinion, if it isn't a rule then one shouldn't get a point(s) for it or even the suggestion that a point will be given.

    if it's annoying folks or intimidating them i understand and we need to be more considerate. Assigning points and/or warnings isn't the way to handle it (in my opinion); for folks who do mind I really wish someone would offer up some suggestions on what they think might work

    The world never changes if you're forever "minding my own business".
    The mindset that no one knows you're gay because you haven't told them,
    is like the dog that thinks you don't see him stealing the steak because he avoids your glance.
    Staying in the closet is like continuing to sit in the back of the bus.
    It's accepting that it's wrong to be who you are.

    They’re warm, cuddly, and fun loving.

    One of the things I like best about them is how when I tell them to use the litter pan they’re able to keep their little minds on the topic at hand long enough to do so.

    Yep, cats are cool.

    Re: What's the sudden big deal of Hijacking threads?

    Here we have a thread started by TheBled that was a sincere question about thread hijacking. There was discussion about it throughout all of page one, most of page two and three.

    This was a serious enough themed discussion that 3 admin-mods replied in the thread, including JD.

    At about post 66 to 83 the thread derailed into nothing but a private playground, and that TheBled's thread could be now treated as a hijack thread. Who is that fair to? This thread was important enough for JD to address, and now it's a series of hijacks. I'm disappointed. If it continues this direction, I shall just move it to Fun and Games. Here's a fun game here - here

    IMHO, it ran its course, everyone had their say, it kinda died, and then was hijacked.

    Uh, on purpose.

    As a joke.

    As an example of hijacking.

    Did you canvas the other 72,887 members to discover if they had, in fact, had their say? Perhaps people stopped posting serious responses because they saw what the thread had degenerated into, and perhaps people who hadn't had a chance to view the thread, and who perhaps may have wanted to venture an opinion figured it wasn't worth the effort, because they'd just be laughed at, or be made fun of, for having the audacity or the balls to venture in where they're not wanted.

    That is what this type of behaviour is saying in a thread like this: This is our ground, and you worthless sh-ts can just keep the Hell out.

    With all due respect Z and Goula (congrats by the way on mod status ) this thread was near the top of page one of the forum for a good 2 days or so and very few different folks posted in it. a couple of us offered up some suggestions, no one added to it. No one responded to them. I was surprised to see JD post in here and felt sorta....honored for lack of a better term, that he felt the issue was important enought to add his thoughts. It did go off topic with TheBled adding in on that. If i recall correctly it was stated that when the author of the thread participated in a "hijack" that was a different story as opposed to other hijacks that might intemidate whoever the author of the thread was. the hijack in this thread, as lube pointed out, was in humor and poking fun at this thread topic.

    i don't buy the theory that others passed up posting because they'd be laughed at or whatever, because as Z pointed out the thread remained on topic until near the end of page 3. it's been my observation that a heck of a lot of people don't read all the pages of a thread before they post. so i don't see that as being likely that they were intimidated by the "hijack" that took place.

    I am disappointed at the two recent responces by mods here. That reaction is no more fair than the implication that "all" members of the board had, had their say in this thread, which obviously isn't true; however, the thread did sorta fade out. At this point i see the thread has had 962 views, 86 posts, 11 by andreus, and 7 by me. the author of the thread posted 5 times. it's even marked with the red "hot thread" envelope.

    I offer up another suggestion...someone make the thread a sticky and the rest of us agree to not hijack it further, then see how many more responces/suggestions we get in a week or so?

    I was under the impression the thread had run its course, and then I noticed several people playing around with it, so I joined in...

    Re: What's the sudden big deal of Hijacking threads?

    Basically, reason being that I jumped in on a Hijack, because it didn't seem like anyone else seem to wanted to have input, like Mike_n_Herrin, it basically got down to him, Andreus, Gsdx saying a few more things, and that was that. The post was getting a lot of serious replies for a good while, but it trailed off because as I saw it, the post basically wasn't going to go anywhere else without people repeating themself anyway.

    I think the thread basically served it's purpose. Plenty of people had plenty of time to answer this thread if they really wanted to keep it on a serious note. I don't see how anyone would feel that they would be made fun of for making a serious reply, no one in this thread has made fun of anyone else for a serious response. The majority of people who made serious replies in this thread, were the ones a part of the partial hijack.

    I'm willing to keep this topic on topic if people are willing to upkeep on a serious discussion. But if not, than people can have whatever they want with the thread. I think quite a few people got their points across.

    Mikey,

    Once a thread has been derailed, you simply have no way of knowing how many guys and gals avoid posting an on-topic post in the thread because now it's so far off track. To me the question is not, "has this thread outlived its vitality for the original topic?" but rather, "Who can decide for this entire community that there's nothing left to contribute on topic to the thread??" Would you find it equally acceptable if someone just started bumping old threads from page gazillion with a bunch of off-topic posts? Those are now worthless threads too, by this standard you seem to suggest.

    If the thread is going to go off topic, so be it. My reaction is almost always disappointment. Whatever the case may be, those threads will frequently end up moved to F & G.

    Re: What's the sudden big deal of Hijacking threads?

    respectfully

    it is obvious that the bled does not want his thread protected, since he is one of the people that participated in the party. Isn't that what was said? if a thread starter hijacks his own thread then it doesn't matter?

    respectfully

    it is obvious that the membership doesnt feel abused by fun hijacks in threads. its been almost two days and no one took the topic seriously enough to post constructive sollutions but Mike, kahiah, SB, GSDX and I, as JD asked. I have yet to see a topic that people cared about at JUB that they were scared away from posting in. if people arent afraid to post about rape and underage sex when offended, I cant imagine why they would be afraid to jump on this thread like gangbusters if they really cared. JD's post is stamped...August 22nd, 2006, 01:36 PM ...there was no real hijack until Bradlees post at...August 23rd, 2006, 10:59 PM ... There was not much response at all.

    that was a day and a half for people to respond unmolested in any way if they had any desire whatsoever to. while a few did, thousands were too busy watching porn and gossiping to care about this topic.

    the majority of the feedback that has been given has said that they dont really agree with the moderator's approach to the whole issue.

    Why infer that the guys have harmed or intimidated anyone at this point? Are you guys angry that the feedback JD asked for and got was not in agreement with the moderator actions?

    Do you guys really think that just because no one has agreed with you that it means they are scared to post? could it be that they just dont agree?

    I just dont understand any of this.

    I dont understand why no one offered JD input over the course of a day and a half, and I dont understand why people are getting so angry about the whole thing after the fact.

    I am just confused.

    At about post 66 to 83 the thread derailed into nothing but a private playground, and that TheBled's thread could be now treated as a hijack thread. Who is that fair to? This thread was important enough for JD to address, and now it's a series of hijacks. I'm disappointed. If it continues this direction, I shall just move it to Fun and Games. Here's a fun game here - here

    That is what this type of behaviour is saying in a thread like this: This is our ground, and you worthless sh-ts can just keep the Hell out.
    I know I'm going to catch hell for this somewhere down the line... In my humble opinion, you two need to get a grip here. You are all making a mountain out of a mole hill. Yeah, hijacking is both annoying to some people and just par-for-the-course for others. This is a Gay Men's Entertainment Forum for heaven's sake. Not some super-serious, geo-political discussion forum. And the threat to move the thread to F&G is just... low.

    You know what, GL made me think of a good point. If this thread was moved to F&G, that would basically mean, no one would be able to add a serious reply to it again, so it turn it wouldn't really be us denying the thread anymore serious replies, as it was intended in the first place.

    So are you saying that it is acceptable for you just to annoy some people because you know best when a thread is finished? And would you find it okay to just start bumping old threads with off topic posts??


    let me run this idea by you (not my idea - wish I could take credit for it but I can't) :

    What if every thread started by the thread starter had a signal in it, as to how they felt about hijacks? That is, what if the title of the thread always had an "OPEN" or "ClOSED" in it to indicate whether hijacks were welcome? I.e. (and this is just a hypothetical) "FDA allowed morning after pill with no prescription - CLOSED" and "Pluto is not a planet - OPEN" - what do you think of that idea?

    However at some point a thread is so very hijacked that it's not restorable - a good example of that was hot cute or neither.

    Re: What's the sudden big deal of Hijacking threads?

    I'm not aware i was attempting to suggest any kind of standard. I was mearly pointing out that to say the thread had been hijacked and suggesting it was't given a chance after 2 days of being near the top of page 1 of hot topics wasn't, in my mind, accurate.

    the thread only went off topic for about a page. out of four pages that's not that much and it's now very much on topic. so once again i suggest it be made a sticky. you may not know how many folks would have replied if it hadn't gone off topic for 15 posts, but you also don't know how many people wouldn't have replied even if it had stayed on topic up to this point. as i said there were over 900 views of the thread and only a handful of people bothered to post. i would suspect that Who posts in a thread is more indicative of whether other people are intimidated by it or not. Especially when one of the owners of the site posts (which i'm very glad he did).

    I thought about locking it, but you know we try to avoid locking threads. A locked thread is useless to everyone, and rarely is that a win.

    lol

    no offense meant bradlee

    I just meant that it more likely that people are afraid to disagree with mods and not post than it is that a hijack is causing them to not post.

    you were just the first to notice the thread was floundering. I was watching it. When you bumped the thread with your comment it had rotated to the end of the second page.
