Default VT is a Social Networking Site for Horny Teenagers

... Sometimes.

Looking around at new members profiles. All the topless profile pics, albums with people commenting on their attractiveness and other sexual comments.

Seriously, what the fuck? This is a help site, not a dating site. Some of these I'm talking about are the ones who fill out all the p101 surveys, to be blunt.

It does have to stop, and I understand that may be hard. I suggest finding as many people as possible, taking the pictures & comments off and pming them explaining this.

Now if the person who has posted these images is a good user, & helps people I don't see a problem. It's when people sign up just for this reason, to get comments on them and talk to others with chats.

When I had my MSN up here, I'd always get guys adding me asking for my penis size and sexuality. I had to remove it from my profile for that reason and block all of them.

I've noticed a lot more of this recently.

Yeah so have I. Lots of members have. I honestly don't know how you could enforce it though, we could give it a go. But it depends on what Ant is prepared to do, and how to deal with it.

Has anyone got any ideas? I have none.

Well I did say ideas.
I don't think that would go through. We would lose many members that way. I doubt that staff would go for it. I don't know actually.

See what others say. I would lose my job to start with.
lol

It's a site full of horny teens what more do you expect? As long as they are within the rules I don't see a problem with guys posting shirtless pics and people commenting on them.

There's no possible way we can filter between good users and picture comment whores. If you guys want these features you have to live with the fact that there are these types of users joining.

If you guys want to stop it we can go back to the days where VT was a lot more simpler like when we were on 3.6 and have limited profiles and less social networking.

But when you are gonna have these social features people are going to use them for different reasons.

Jon that's nothing new. It was a problem now and a problem 3-4 years ago.

Actually that is a good idea, drop all the social networking features. This is a help site anyway, so I see no use in them.

Jon, this is a teenage website and teens are notoriously horny. There is no getting around that.
I agree with your statement about how we are a site that aim to help people and that these fancy social networking things aren't necessary.
But they are nice to have and to use and it helps the members who use them to bond a bit more.

I also think that it isn't necessary for members to use these features or even look at them if they don't want to. No one is forcing you to look at member's photos or photo comments.

No, I'm pretty sure that the PM system has always been about.

Well I agree with that on the whole, although when its someones avatar its hard to avoid.

For me the key question would be whether this is in anyway interfering with those people who dont want to look at the puberty threads or dont want to look at profile albumns. Provided those people that want to get help on other issues are still able to do so cant these things co-exist?

Default Re: VT is a Social Networking Site for Horny Teenagers

I dont agree.... i like VT the way it is.
Yes those stupid adds asking for inappropriate questions are annoying, but if I can handle it as I receive at least 10 of them a week, I'm pretty sure everyone can.

I don't like that the site keeps taking away features for the sake of commodity.
one way or another something else will happen, it's all about the information you post.
I have MSN, Skype, and AIM. As you see, only AIM is in my profile. That limits all the adds to one IM system.

PMs can be ignored, and reported.

And those searching for pic comments.... well just deal with it.
It's not that big of a deal.

and if P101 is removed. that will decrease the size of this forum considerably.
and in all honestly it's P101 that brought many of the users,

so i say just limit your personal info, and let the rest be.

The way I see it, if you don't like something, and it bothers you so much it downgrades the site.

You know where the door is. Leave.

It's impossible to change the site to everyone's likings.

Default Re: VT is a Social Networking Site for Horny Teenagers

Okay the main idea isn't about removing the features.

It's about these people.

I posted this for you to post your ideas too, but you seem to disagree. Why don't you come up with something?

I've talked to several people about it, and everyone agrees that this should change.

Heather, I will not be leaving thanks. It doesn't bother me so much, it's just a suggestion. We don't have to downgrade, the features can just be turned off.

"These people" relates to which group of members?
Do you mean the ones that are joining, living in the P101 forums and with topless photos (I'm assuming you mean males in respect to the last bit)?

There is a report button on almost every function of the site. If something is inappropriate... Report it.
Otherwise, I don't really see a problem with pictures/comments. People regularly report bad (not including shirtless... You see shirtless people/pics daily. Not a big deal.) pictures and comments, and they are taken down.
I mean, I've never been a fan, but apparently other members have been, or they would never have been on here, or still here.

As for MSN stuff, I'm not sure if you saw, but Laura and the seniors recently released some information about what to do about that.

As long as it's not breaking any rules I can't see it being a problem. Over the years I've had dozens of people add me on msn for reasons I don't like, it's not hard to block them though. And so what if people want to post pictures of themselves with a little less clothing than usual? As long as there are no nudes then no rules are being broken. No one is forcing you to look at them either. We can't change everything just to please one person, if you don't like it then feel free to click here. Also VT isn't a dating site, our main proirity always has been and still is to help people, so some of us want to have a little fun on top of that? It's no big deal, you have to live with it, it's what some of us call life.

For fucks sake, why can't any of you listen to me?

I'm talking about people JOINING for the purpose of posting those pictures. Not about people who joined for other reasons, then post one or two.

Christ's sake.

As above, it's life, deal with it.

If they cause problems then they can simply be warned, or eventually banned. It's been the same since the birth of VT.
