strange/paranormal thread ?
« on: April 16, 2019, 11:51:58 pm »
I was curious if fellow furs here think that there would be enough stories and interest to start a repository thread about ghost stories and other paranormal things?
It would be a thread that is just a list of a fursons experiences with such things.
Of course it would be started with a disclaimer, and also with a note to not judge others...
If possible, I would like it to be shielded from the internet, so that only those logged on can see it, therefore google and such can't use bots to find the data. I don't know if that is possible?  It would also be made where the thread doesn't die/expire (if possible).

So do you think it would be worth it to make a thread on the topic?

Frankly, I don't think such a thread will work or be a good idea due to the following:

1. There really isn't a lot of members who log on and would participate in such a thread. The amount of members that have logged on and visited Furtopia has declined considerably the last few years.

2. I highly doubt there'd be enough paranormal, etc. stories from people to keep the thread continuously going.

The only place(s) to possibly put such a thread are either the Life Problems forum or the Adult Discussion forum. But I tend to feel that a thread in either wouldn't quite fit in those forums.

That comes into conflict with the Furtopia gravedigging rule. If it's been 6 months or longer since the last post was made in a thread, then the thread should not be gravedug.

Are some threads "sticky" and don't expire?
Thanks Kobuk for the info.  This is why I asked.
Yeah it's too bad Furtopia has fewer people on it.

Threads that are pinned or "stickied" are mostly rules for various forums or other major announcements from staff during Furtopia's long history. A "general discussion" about paranormal stuff isn't really anything "major". Know what I mean?

Though I'd be all up for a thread like that, I don't think it should be sticky'd. There doesn't seem to be enough activity on the forum nowadays to do that. Also, why would a thread about paranormal experiences necessarily belong in a place bots can't reach?

I suggested keeing bots out because it would be a topic that people could get ridiculed for.  But now I'm guessing it's too little interest for a thread.  It's too bad we don't have more traffic here.

So you're saying that maybe some people's stories could be a bit embarressing, is that it? Dude, we've had all kinds of topics posted in all the forums on Furtopia (Except Life Problems and Adult forums.) that bots and non-logged people could have seen and read from the members. Nothing is sacred nowadays due to technology.

well, okay then...ridicule here i come?

Maybe I will make a thread , but as we suspect it won't go too far...nor for long.
and of course it wouldn't be sticky or get much traffic.

If this was just a fursona story thread then the more the merrier. If your fursona's word has stories it would be awesome to read them.

I think it would be fun to ask why someone is ridiculing an imaginary character's ghost story.  :D
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.
