"Give us more traffic and we'll give you a better site" - Ummm, I think you've got it backwards there buddies.

@ElectricEye... Thicker skin is needed to moderate this site successfully.

Squrlz4Sale - I see.. so the idea is bring in more traffic, which translates to more revenue, which further means more IT support. Lol

Makes sense to me... May be difficult though.. that is sort of like putting the cart before the horse.

ElectricEye - You must be new here.. lol forums almost always get hijacked into some other-than-intended purpose of discussion.

I don't take offense.. after all I have been here for ages. Lol Also, I understand how frustrating it can be working with the public. No offense taken. =)

@5Cats
Congratulations!!
I am filling out the paperwork for your free lifetime membership now. After I submit it, it can take as long as 60 months before it is processed and hopefully accepted. That is baring any mistakes I have made in completing the 13 page form. I will update you in 4 to 6 weeks, when I receive the confirmation letter from the higher ups that they have received the paperwork.

kitteh9lives - The correct way to talk to others about concerns.

ElectricEye - The wrong way, the way that makes people just want to leave this site forever.

"but also I want you and everyone to understand, that this post wasn't put up to give everyone a forum for discussion on the problems of IAB"

kitteh9lives kinda opened that can of worms, and then politely replied to a lot of concerns.

Mr_Pedo_Bear - "Some pet peeves, anyone who makes criticism constructive or otherwise generally gets shut down quite fervently by admins. "

kitteh9lives - "Mr_Pedo_Bear thanks for the suggestions.
Which admin or mod is shutting you down? "

I must say, the way you handled elkingo is a very good example of this.

Since I am new mod here. I am trying to get more people to come to the site and check it out. Those social networking sites can really boost membership to sites like ours if enough people share them.

Thank you for the excellent banter this morning and your very constructive thoughts on how to improve IAB even more. I look forward to chatting with you again in the future.

Thanks for the back up Squrlz4Sale. Much appreciated.

@elkingo
Sorry for the interruption. I had to do some work.
I talked with a friend of mine and she explained the "whole internet at work thing". I honestly didn't understand it. I do now.
I do appreciate your constructive thoughts on this topic, but also I want you and everyone to understand, that this post wasn't put up to give everyone a forum for discussion on the problems of IAB, but an easy way for everyone to get the information about IAB on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Tumbler. I was simply asking, that if you use any of those other platforms, to add us on them. When I read your comment, it hit a nerve. I should have just let it go, but I didn't.

@ Elkingo: Hey, I hear you and appreciate the feedback. And I can definitely relate about not wanting to access NSFW content. Many large corporations keep sites such as IAB on a blacklist and anyone attempting to access them gets an inquiry from HR as a warning. A second visit can be reason for termination.

Regarding the difficulty in getting IT work done for IAB, I think the situation is that we are low man on the Demand Media totem pole. To revamp the code would require a significant investment and apparently Demand isn't willing to make that investment at the moment.

I think Kitteh's desire is to increase our traffic so that Demand comes to view IAB as an asset they want to keep and develop--as opposed to an underperforming website that they might, at some point, decide to let go so they can focus their energies elsewhere.

(Let me emphasize that this is all speculation on my part. I'm not privy to any inside information.)

@electriceye, I'll have to agree with Mr_Pedo_Bear.

Don't attack elkingo's for his place of work's stringent internet rules. All he was saying was that he won't view IAB during work when post of promiscuity is rampant.

When given advice/suggestions, no matter how bad they are, still take them in a weigh them against other advice/suggestions. elkingo didn't say anything that was inherently untrue.

Anyway, have a good day at work, I'll be back at 10 EDT. I've rehearsals to go to.

Dang gerry. I was just kidding, which is why I wrote that I was just kidding.

It's been awhile since my last turkyslap. I hear that is how you say hello in Cali.
Next time I'm there, I just might take up on that offer.

"The Log In with Facebook widget...
Again...one more time....those kinds of upgrades to the site are done by IT in the backend of things. We have no way to adjust, add, change, modify or repair anything. Maybe someday, but not today."

One final thing, and I will shut up and go away. Regarding this... we members hear this A LOT. You know.. I was reflecting on it, and it seems to me this argument about IT not being able to fix things has been around for years.

Maybe it is time to fire the IT department. They can't even do the simplest of upgrades without some BS line about IAB code being old and outdated... I say to that: Well... update it then! Re-code and re-launch the site as to fix these old problems.

If the current IT people can't do it.. fire them!

The moment I cease to be able to do my job, I loose it.. why is it different for the IAB IT department?

@electriceye
It's that kind of stuff which makes people leave the site. To put it frankly you're begging people to share the page to drum up numbers. People are saying they won't and giving reasons. Your response to say members don't care. Well ask yourself this. Even with the incredibly leading questions in that survery you had what 2000 responses? Not a lot is it. Posting the softcore is a substitute for quality content. It is also short term as people grow up and then stop going here, they go on proper porn rather than think boobies. Remember chat just became a domain for tweens and then became dead. You want to appeal to a small segment at expense of a bigger one then don't complain that your numbers are low.

You were incredibly out of order to Elkingo. Why bother good luck with the site another one who won't be around to see it. Adios

ElectricEye - "
Well great then, that gives you plenty of time to spend here then, since your at home. Keep up the trolling. I gotta get back to work though, have a great day and thanks for getting my blood pumping this morning. You were better than 3 cups of coffee...:)"


Lol.. honestly wasn't trolling.. just trying to provide and voice some honest and valuable feedback. Take it for what you want. Opinions are like arseholes.. everyone has one, and most stink. XD

"That statement to me is more offensive than anything ever posted on IAB. I now am dire need of some mind bleach."

Lol..

Strawman argument. Sure.. its offensive. Lets talk about that.. instead of what your problem actually is -- low site traffic.

"Maybe you should just visit us here when it is safe to do so."

I thought you wanted to increase traffic?

You say you are offended by the softcore porn on IAB, yet you use pornigraphic crude gutter slang in your response to me.

"Then I suggest pounding IT's ass about it"

That statement to me is more offensive than anything ever posted on IAB. I now am dire need of some mind bleach.

ElectricEye -

Strawman argument. I work in a school though; so yes.. adult entertainment on a school network is watched very close.

"You are not used to an adult argument" -- and yet this 'civility' when given constructive criticism makes me want to provide your website with even more useful and time consuming feedback.

"Why would they write you up or fire you for something you have never even seen?"

When I open a webpage that has this on it:
"Mammary Theater - WTF DD Film Feature" or "Nekid Yoga" or "Nude Pamela Anderson Is Still Amazing At 47 [Pic]" or even "67-Yr-Old Grandmother Explains Semen Facemasks"

Explaining that sh|t to a school board member, parent, or teacher who is watching all internet use, whether I open the link or not is not something I plan on doing any time soon.
