Close the fucking war room!

What do you all think?

And

FYI

I had asked that there be a clarification posted in FYM on links to sights that seek donations. There were two threads closed of mine...on that was to a project to help soldiers who have been wounded, and the other about the Red Cross, One Campaign, African Well Fund ect. The explination was posted in WAR but not in here. The thread in here just sunk.


My fear was since the explination was in the war room, that people in FYM would not notice.

Here is a link to the two closed threads.

I believe there are worthwhile issues, that are brought up and it disappoints me when they get bumped to the War room when we all know that this is death to threads.

Moving this to the appropriate forum.

I do believe we may have had this discussion before however.

SO can there be a clarification posted about threads with links to places seeking donations in FYM so this does not get burried again?

The thread closed in the other room just sunk without clarification.

Hi Dread,

I have already explained the site's policy with regard to charitable donations in the original thread on the subject, but I'll quote my response here in case people aren't already aware of it:

Quote:
The policy is that if you wish to advertise a charity the appropriate way to do so is through placing a text link in your signature. Starting threads encouraging people to donate to a charity of your choice isn't permitted.

With regard to events such as the tsunami or Hurricane Katrina, sometimes a decision will be taken to place a message on the forum encouraging posters to make a donation to a charity. However, this is a decision taken by the owner and administrators of the site and should not be taken to mean that it's acceptable for any posters to advertise other charities of their choice.
As I said before, you're very welcome to PM or email me or the other FYM mods if you would like to make any comments or ask questions about the policy. I hope this clarifies the situation.

*Fizz.

I am not upset at the policy.

I am upset that the decision was relayed in the war room when there was a thread in FYM that needed explination as well.

Did you read the one in the War forum?

If so, what the hell is your problem?

Problem is, as you and I both know, it does not get read in there.
