Respect Thread - Hidden
« on: October 20, 2015, 11:30:14 PM »

How come the respect thread forum is hidden by non-members? Tried linking one of my threads on another board, but they couldn't see it

There a reason? and if not can we open it to all?

The theory is it discourages people from "stealing" from the respect threads, coming here to gather info on a character to use in a Vs. thread, either here or elsewhere.

I thought it was silly, since if I made a Respect thread, I would want as many people to see it as possible, and wouldn't care how they used it. I assume if someone makes a Respect thread for a character, they like that character, and want to promote his or her use and reputation.

Seeing as how you've made a huge number of respect threads, maybe you can convince the mods otherwise.

Honestly, the reasoning behind it is kind of weird. Ostensibly, it was hidden to keep people from stealing, and more importantly, taking credit for, our respect threads. The thinking was that other boards stealing our respect threads without crediting our posters or board is basically increasing the "prestige" of that board using our posters' "intellectual property". Having the threads hidden was supposed to cut down on the stealing while simultaneously bringing new posters to this board. But I'm sure you can see the obvious catch-22.

I'm cool with discussing moving them to public with the other mods if the majority of thread starters want that. Hiding them never made sense to me in the first place.

I dont care either way, but, considering how much shit gets talked about HC on other sites, i say its good people have to post here, among the unwashed masses, awhile in order to gain access to that forum.
