    ***9. The VIPs are friends of the staff or respected by the staff.
    That's it.
    No mystery and there's no need to ponder about it.
    Do not attack the VIPs. ***

    I thought we were all friends of the staff or respected by the staff and thats why we were here, I was kinda hoping it wouldnt turn SFN-ish with that "rule", Kinda hoping we all were just on a site hanging out and bullshitting, not having these cant say this or that about someone rules.

    VIP's are an odd thing to handle in a place like this that has people from mutual sites coming in. There has been much debate back and forth. One thing everybody agrees on is that this is to be a friendly place, and we are going to be treated well by everybody. VIPs at SFN that come here may come under more ridicule than normal because the are "open targets" in a neutral ground. It would be a shame to have somebody run off just because posters might take advantage of that situation.

    That is just one of MANY reasons members here might become VIPs. Another reason could be explained easily enough with a quick pm from me lining my Paypal account to you, but we can discuss that later.:wink:

    I might also add that everybody IS friends of the staff, and respected as well. Some just more than others.

    I wrote that for a specific reason.
    Ed is a friend of mine.
    That's why he's VIP.
    I want him to feel safe here and post as himself and not be targeted.
    I like when people can post and be themselves rather than be defensive.

    As far as I know Ed has always been good at taking care of himself at SFN, no hitting alert on some of the jerkoff comments he gets there and gives it right back so I dont see why he cant do that here IF he was attacked.

    So much for the site being different than over there I guess, oh well.

    I don't want to go in to Ed's SFN experience.
    He can do that if he ever decides to come back here.
    The bottom line is he's a friend that is targeted and I won't let him feel unwelcomed here.

    Ok I just figured since this is a invite site(need approval to join) that you guys would know who was trouble makers and who is not, and if they were trouble makers then they dont get in.

    That's the thing, it's not invite only. Dawg changed it so all you need to do is verify your email.

    Everybody wants a site where they can shit on whoever they want to. In the end the site dies and people wonder why. No one wants to go to a site where they are going to be shit on. Look over there, all you will find is unknown mults. If you want that kind of environment go to AFN and whine with the rest of ass hurt bitches.

    Dawg you know I'm not anywhere to shit on anyone, but you know anyone getting special treatment will get a hard time from the others , I was just hoping this place would be different than SFN-ish enviroment where non staff members where on the same level, anyways I'll leave it at that. Cant wait for the Fa Fa Fakey invite, lol.

    jackie, I have never been a member at any forum since 1999 that didnt have special members of some sort. It's just something we all have to deal with. If there is such a place then the forum probably sucks because no one of any importance wnats to go there.

    Ed is a target I'm just looking out for a friend and I hope people can understand this.
    Hopefully he'll come back and everyone can see what he's like when he's not maligned.

    Ok thats fine, but you know as well as I that someone that gets special treatment usually it put the target on their backs, like how MOST SFN vips always get a hard time no matter how cool they are.

    Ed has that whether he's VIP or not here just because everyone knows him.
    I'm trying to give him another chance here where he can be himself.
    He's a good guy and very entertaining.

    Dont get me wrong my man, I'm not going anywhere and I know things will be cool, just my impression from you when I joined is any members that sign up must get approval so you guys would know who is trouble and who is not, I didnt know you opened it up to just anyone.

    I think it comes down to reality. People like ed are real, we know a lot about him because he broadcasts it. I like that. You all probably know my full real name, a few searches and you can know my history. I will not go on any site and say anything to anyone I wouldnt do in person. Yea, this is a board, some people are anonymous which is fine, but just be real and it will be a fun place. If I say a douche type thing, call me out, Im gonna do the same to you!!!
