    TCF Update - New Rule in Effect

    Today is one of a handful of changes coming to TCF in the near future. As I'm sure you've noticed, TCF has been pretty toxic lately. It bothers me just as much as it bothers you and today I'm implementing/enforcing new rules aimed at curbing these problems.

    You can find the new rule in the forum rules, and I'm sending a PM out to everyone just to make sure everyone sees it. Here it is for reference:
    10. Treat other members with respect, don't instigate, avoid drama.

    This is a really simple rule, but I want to elaborate on it here so you guys understand the magnitude of it and know I'm not messing around.

    The goal is to combat the constant negativity, drama, pot-stirring, disrespect/fighting and toxicity. This starts with respecting other members. Nothing is more frustrating than seeing two shooters butt heads. From now on, treat other members here how you want to be treated. (No masochists allowed!).

    Attacking other shooters will not be tolerated.
    Be prepared to accept the consequences if you plan on testing the waters. If someone attacks you, be the bigger/more mature man and ignore them. Anyone who sees this can simply let me know and it will be dealt with accordingly. I hate to sound so stern about this but we all need to respect each other.

    Don't stir the pot
    This one is pretty generic but I realize there are members here borderline obsessed with TCF-related drama. It's not enough for them to just enjoy the forum, there has to be some gossip/drama going around to feed off of. If it's not useful/constructive, don't bother bringing it up. This toxicity ruins the experience for the rest of us. Have a serious problem/concern? Post a thread about it and we can discuss it. Want to constantly be negative and bring up drama? Keep it to yourself. No, this doesn't mean I'm going to start policing everything everyone says but if you start getting reported for always being negative you'll get warnings/lose privileges. It's too hard to have a positive forum when it's constantly being drowned out by the negative members being negative.

    Respect people
    It's really frustrating to see people new to the candid world come here for help and get lynched for it. Being part of the community takes time and effort. There's a learning curve/process and we should facilitate that with positive vibes and encouragement, not negativity and hostility. "So, what, does this mean we have to start catering to lurkers/newbies?". No, of course not. It means you have to refrain from insulting people and giving them a reason to spite you. What we don't want is people coming here and thinking we're all douchebags because we're so mean to people. Someone lurking? Comment bombing? Whatevering? Report them and I can always inactivate them manually (I do it every day thanks to shooters who put in the effort). If the software doesn't catch them automatically, that's the best solution.

    No instigating

    Shooters here not on the best terms know exactly how to get under each other's skin. Instigating carries the same consequences as disrespecting/attacking other members. If you don't like someone here, just avoid/ignore them. There's no need to cause problems with others. On this note, I realize some members here have problems with shooters who are more or less "arrogant" in their threads. All I can say about this is let arrogant shooters be arrogant. It says enough about already. Again, be the bigger man and just realize not everyone can be as mature as you are.

    As always, any comments/suggestions are welcomed. I'd like to know your guys thoughts on this!

    Seems pretty sensible to me. I haven't noticed any bad treatment, those who can't be civil shouldn't be part of a community anyway.

    I still think a pub crawl would be better. But yeah, being helpful and cheerful is more productive. I'll play nice.

    While I wish this rule had come into effect sooner, I'm still very glad it happened now rather than never. This forum was much more positive a few years ago.

    Thanks Darth. There is so much negativity in the world and it's everywhere we go and look. I hate social media especially for this reason...too many rude people quick to stir up drama and gossip where ever they can. This forum is fantastic and so are most of the members. I am looking forward to a great 2017! Cheers mates!!

    Understood, thanks Darth. Sometimes I read shooters butting heads on the forum and think is funny, but I don't like it either. Candid shooting is a risky hobby, we should all just have fun with it.

    @darth you're emphasising more on shooters butting heads, does the more positive outlook stretch to the treatment of lurkers and non shooters as well.

    As that is pretty much where most of the negative comments are aimed at. So perhaps clarifying that issue would make things more clearer.l where the line is.

    I'm on the fence. While I agree there's been a lot of negativity lately, I think it's mostly directed at lurkers and people who ask trolling questions like "where is the best place to film girls". It's probably appropriate that we launch the mother of all members (MOAM) , jonners and glastone on these guys.

    I do think we are too hard on new members asking for help but I think a few well worded sticky threads which they could be directed to would solve that.

    Well, Darth hs already defned them pretty clearly above. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy banter between people on good terms. But I'm glad Darth has made a clear distinction between that and 'stirring the pot'.

    Seems entirely reasonable.

    There are 3 main types of shooter;
    The Hunter - someone who actively stalks their target
    The Sniper - someone who finds a good spot and waits for a target to come into view
    The Opportunist - someone who always has a camera available ready to get the shot, should the chance arise

    all the forum good, just see for months there is more of new shooter.


    Is as you say sometimes it is necessary to know to stop some time because it can have problems on our mind or our daily is I find very well what you have just said.


    About behavior, I had a single problem here with a person who is sharing this video on a private xhamster channel, I put a little presession is I think he understood so I decided to Not follow up.


    In all very good post, of my side I think to return in some months as shooter

    I see more of the drama aimed at any newbie shooter or non-shooter just asking questions to get started.

    I just support the new rules and for sure i voted 'yes', give my five stars, thumbs up button and of course 'Thanks' button, as it was new stuff from a Boss or Master but this time because this is something that adds to the goods of the forum behaviour or so.

    Thanks so much for every effort you put in keep this wonderful community up and running. Really thanks you very much.

    I hope i can continue seeing all the news.
