If I could transfer my admin powers over there I'd ban them all.

I haven't seen anyone in the Bono folder diss any of the mods here. But I don't read all the other forums and I don't go there much. I didn't know about any soap opera type stuff. *nosey*

Usually the interference bashing is in the general folder.

May I just say...Not *everyone* from Zootopia sucks. It just depends on who you talk to. I have personally met several people from there, and they were all wonderful people.

But I do know about the posts and the people you're talking about. I'm just suggesting that it's not a good idea to make broad generalizations like that.

And remember, there is much more order here because there's more people who are willing to put the time and effort that it takes to moderate a place like this. All Zootopia has is a few Sysops, and they mostly work behind a little curtain. No friendly reminders of the rules or anything like that.

Just a thought...

I went there once, and made up a user name and password which took me exactly 8 seconds to forget. I KNOW what the password was, but I can't remember my user name! I really don't like the layout; it's very confusing to my computer-illiterate brain. I like boards where you don't have to click again to read the next post.

That being said...

YAY INTERFERENCE!

I agree! I remember you from Zootopia, PaleBlueDot! But I don't think we ever officially met Hello!

Yes there are some good people there but it's sad that you have to put up with all the crap to get to know these nice U2 fans. I made a lot of good friends there, but finally the bad outweighed the good, and I left.

I agree about the sysops. . .they don't seem to be able to take care of the problems enough. They sometimes are a little "slack" in enforcing the rules. Also, Interference is a little more structured and takes a bit of time to join (more fields to fill in, etc.) so people who are just looking to cause trouble might find it too much of a bother. Plus here we can't change our screen names every five minutes like you can in Zootopia. That's how a lot of the troublemaking gets started. . .

I think Interference is a much happier, safer place to be

I hope it wasn't the psycho stalker guy from Australia who always wanted to talk about INXS (Not at INXS, they're cool )

Ahhh! He did PM me and ask me if I liked INXS. When I said no, he proceeded to violently threaten me and cuss me out. Dumbass, two minutes later, he used another alias to start in on me again and when I called him on it, he flew into another rage!

I never read the General folder, it looked like an out of control mess.

Well he messaged me too but he was pretty polite. I think I talked to him before he went psycho He didn't like me because I was American and not "available." But he did harrass some of my friends.

Yep some really weird stuff happened in the General folder. This is what I'm talking about

I was a member of Zootopia before I came here. I still am, but I definitely like Feedback better. Zootopia is more formal, and not as friendly as Feedback. Feedback is more oopen and relaxed, which I like better.

One thing that bothers me about Zootopia is you don't feel the immediate connection, if that makes sense. On Feedback, you can tell the members like and respect eachother, but on Zootopia, I always feel like there's hostility, and there's no sense of community. I know there are nice Zootopians, just from the sheer amount of nice members here that are also Zootopians, but.. yeah. It's disappointing to think that a U2's official forum can be as awful as it is.
