IR-Tube.net changes you would like for 2019...
#1
I've been running the show for half a year now. So it's time to check in with the IR fan base to find out what you guys would like changed.

I'm taking ideas, criticisms, and constructive input.

I know there have been some complaints about my moderation style, some of the thread topics and other issues. This is your opportunity to make your complaints in a constructive way.

I'm trying my level best to be a responsive administrator, but it only works if you guys provide input.

So, lets have it. What could be changed for the better this year?

I think you are doing a good job as the administrator, some topic that we don't always agree with (Brandi Love or girls who do IR but don't like black men). But the forum has gotten better since you took over, and it will be 10 years since this forum begins because of the old Mr. Marcus went out. We are the only porn forum for IR porn but the industry still doesn't know we don't exist but there are folks on ADT know about this forum in all but never post on here.

BTW I'm glad you brought me back to the forum and yes I'm a different person in all. Kept up the good work Shot

Ok I'll give my 2 cents since that's what's being asked for. I'm going to do it respectfully and hope I don't get lambasted for it. I understand your mindset for allowing commentary and discussion to take place wherever it starts, but I have to (again, very respectfully) disagree with the way you've handled that regarding the IR Website Update and Upcoming IR Releases threads. They used to be heavily moderated and so when you saw they were updated, you know it was an actual new release/scene being announced. That's what their intentions were in the beginning...announcement threads. Each has accompanying discussion threads that people are just to damn lazy to use. Now we have a bunch of garbage constantly filling up both of these threads. My suggestion is to go back to the old very hard stance of, if it's not an announcement, the post is deleted and the author is subject to some sort of strike system that leads to a ban. I think the 1st IR Announcements thread should also receive the same treatment, and a new discussion thread created for it.

One final thing you can do to encourage junior members is that each time a legit actual announcement is reported for the first time in one of these threads, maybe it counts as double posts or in some way gets them to senior member status faster. It encourages actual posts that people are looking for. And while enabling laziness is being nice to people by not forcing them to use the discussion threads, well, just take a look at the state of these threads and the nonsense arguments/commentary that they've become. A legit post to these ought to have some sort of source quoted and referenced (link to website, trailer, twitter, screenshot, article, etc.) and that's that. No one is telling you how to do your job and we all appreciate what you've done, but you asked for feedback and that's my 2 cents.

I was using another forum during the change/new rules, and before I became a senior.  I was wondering if there's a reason the rules indirectly prevent making threads for scenes of specific actresses/actors or sites. Basically a list of scenes.  Only because searching normally can be a little overwhelming with the duplicates, similar names and different aliases for actresses.

Of course, I understand that even if there was nothing wrong with it, it would still be up to a dedicated soul to do something like that. I also have been able to find all he scenes I was looking for here, so it's not that serious. And thinking about it now,
if our ranks were ever infiltrated by a rabid fan or something they could fuck up links easier.

Otherwise, what ever happened to the whole likes giving you rep thing?

Agree with edb135 - IR Scene Update thread etc - should be heavily moderated and not go off track/be hijacked with random discussions. Defeats the purpose - specially for non-senior members who check out these threads to get updated on new scenes.

The issue here is this: who's going to do that?

When this issue came up before I said I would support it if my staff agreed to enforce it. Because, understand, that will be a lot of work. Checking every day and moving posts around. The individuals who requested the heavy moderation never got any staff members to agree to do it, and I'm just not interested in picking through those threads. Sorry, I'm not doing it.

So. I am still open to altering the rules for specific update threads, but only if at least 2 of my staff members agree to enforce it. If not, it ain't gonna happen. I suggest PMing the mods to see who's open to doing the work.

To your first point, I'm assuming you're talking about the Vault. That is Hoss' domain. PM him and submit your question. I've never used the vault, so I know almost nothing about it. I stream all my porn.

As to likes and Rep. Originally I wanted x number of likes to become 1 rep point. But the system won't do it that way. It will only allow 1 like to become x number of rep points. Witch sucks, because niggas have been super stingey with the rep around here, and dudes are having trouble getting to 5. This summer, when I have more time and less work, I'll look into a solution.

What if you just had users report posts in one of the 3 update threads as a non announcement, and persons reported as such were not allowed to post for a while?  Mods would have a queue they went through that users like myself reported.  Obviously anyone stupid enough to report a valid announcement in a thread as a non-announcement would get instantly banned, but my belief is that doing this will both clean up the forum and make life as easy as possible for the mods.
