Respect thread Section-off limits?

I can understand the Jungle room being kept from outsiders, but why is the respect section blocked off?

I agree with Hulk Power. It could bring people to the site

I could be mistaken, but I think the premise was that people were logging on just to steal the work people put into those threads.

I think I've seen that mentioned before, at least. Or I'm talking out my ass.

I'm pretty sure that was the reason. The mods have a free hand here and they do an excellent job of taking initiative with little problems like that.

The other issue is Jungle Room - I didn't ask yet, but it makes sense. You can't have people joking around about nailing tannies under a made up account and causing problems. We need to protect our members.

Respect threads are generally made by people who put some serious fanboy time into their threads, it wouldn't be fair to have somen steal them away.

Once again, I don't know for sure but it makes sense to me

I got an idea for that. I'll post it in the mod forum.

I've never had the time, patience or skill to make a respect thread, but if I did, I don't think I would want it hidden away. I would want it as available to the outside world as possible, and I really wouldn't care if someone "stole" some images (is it even stealing?) I'm assuming the main reason people make these threads is because they like the characters and want to support them, and to encourage debating with them in Vs. threads.

Back in the day, other boards were stealing our respect threads wholesale.

I even had a bare bones Magneto one, and that one got lifted pretty quickly.

People were just copy pasting the RESPECT threads from old herochat. I never saw them bring in the crowds, sort to say

at the moment you have to have had at least a 100 posts in order to view it.
