Looking for answers to your color questions, have some advice to give... or simply want to get to know your fellow COLOURlovers? You're in the right place.
Dear Fellow CLers and admin,
I have been a member of Colorlovers for nearly 8 years. Over that course of time, we've had some issues but, over all, my time here has been awesome. I have met some of my dearest friends here, and creating palettes and coloring patterns has been wonderful.
Then the website began to dramatically decline in quality. First, the admin disappears. After that, the site is overrun by spam and bots. Then came the sock-puppet accounts. Then came the teens with their disregard and disrespect for this community.
This is ridiculous. There is no excuse that the admin can give to justify the neglect and failure to establish any rules and regulations. Not only is it poor practice, it is dangerous.
I propose that a strike and ban system be put into place. One strike for each behavior such as:
- creating more than 2 accounts and actively using both accounts.
- inappropiate and off-topic discussions in the forums, side bar, comments on profiles, patterns, colors, and palettes.
posting anything that could be a potential trigger including threats of self-harm and suicide.
- public role-playing
Three strikes lead to a permanent IP ban.
Please consider my suggestion. If others think this is needed, please speak up.
