Why doesn't the "Study" get a place on the home page, with subject titles? Similar to the "living Room." and other forum categories, that move up and down biased on activity.

I've wondered this in the past, but the removal of the thread,
"Firearms Magazines gone from King Soopers" from the living rm. to the Study prompted the question.

I understand why the thread was moved, but I don't understand why this or other Study threads aren't listed on the home page when active.

They're ashamed of us, and liberals don't want my posts to be noticed!

perhaps you're right!
Someone found the time and energy to move this thread, but couldn't bother to post an answer to the question.

Yes Daisy, I've read the forum descriptions! What in them did I miss, that would explain why the "Study" is not allowed on the home page along with other active threads?

Pinecam is a family oriented website. The forums are moderated to ensure posts that are disruptive, disagreeable or overly controversial are not permitted in most forums. This was a request from the early days of Pinecam. We had members ask to have their account dropped due to certain opinions being posted.

However, we realized that topics pertaining to politics, religion, or other sensitive topics are important to many Pinecammers. Thus, as special forum was created to air these types of views. Pinecammers who do not wish to partake in such topics can just not enter The Study.

The forum description for The Study is:

Quote:
Discuss politics, religion and other sensitive subjects. All viewpoints are welcome here. The Pinecam TOS is in effect in this forum; however, these discussions are not for the faint of heart. All opinions expressed in this forum are solely those of the author and do not represent the views and/or opinions of Pinecam.com.

The Study forum is moderated differently from all the other Pinecam forums. There is a Terms of Service pertaining only to The Study that outlines the rules and expectations for posing in that forum. You can see it here Pinecam STUDY FORUM Additional Terms Of Service.

We choose to not place the forum new topics/posts on the homepage so Pinecammers do not "accidentally" go into The Study forum with a benign sounding topic title only to discover the language, member back and forth posts, etc. is offensive to them. Pinecammers who frequent the study can "subscribe" to the forum and get notices of new topics and replies.

my blood pressure and over all well being improved after no longer participating in The Study. I found it to be an endless barrage of people talking AT each other instead of WITH each other. I am glad not to be subjected to the posts there when I visit the home page of Pinecam. Thank you! :hugegrin:

I agree, wily,
i love to hear other's opinions, but refuse to put up with the attacks - i think of the study as being the sandbox because many folks there are only trying to tick others off or put out their ideas out and not listen (or respect) and not really discussing - just attacking this politian or that one, or attacking the pinecammers that believe one way or the other. A discussion requires one to listen as well as talk. Too many in the study just want you to hear their side and not listen to theirs.
I wish there was a discussion forum, where people honestly discuss ideas without resorting to name-calling or personal attacks(as much as pc allows) or stereo-typing either party.
We shouldn't be an us vs. them - we should work with each other's ideas and work TOGETHER - even if you don't agree with someone, and never will, at least understanding why they think the way they do is is very helpful in solving problems.

The study is a training camp to let go of your buttons. Once they are gone - life can be more peaceful in and out of the study.

I agree with you daisypusher, If the study, a radio or tv program program is elevating my blood pressure I would turn it off.
I think the study should be allowed on the home page just like the other forums, it would increase views and probably bring more and different opinions to the discussions. The description and terms wouldn't change, all you would see on the home page is thread titles. People would still have the choice to open the thread or not, or avoid the study completely, a personal choice.

My opinion is that the benefits would out weigh any harm caused by someone being "accidentally offended"!

Well, I guess that Pinecam can't please all the people, all the time.
