    I would like to take the time to not talk about what we aren't
    supposed to talk about. Good, now that we got that off our
    chests. There is a different set of unwritten rules we need to
    address for those of the newer members.

    To all of you who are here due to the latest turmoil, we all
    welcome you.

    As you get to know this place, there are many wonderful
    people who post here from all over the world. I'm sure you
    will find them fascinating. Some of them don't know what to
    make of us (refugees). (As we know, they have good reason.)

    However, there is a few people who would be offended by
    what we used to take for granted in our little playground.

    To that end, I have asked the host to set aside a new spot
    under Rick's place for us to have a "Anything Goes" forum.

    First of all, should it be request for admittance with the
    understanding there is offensive material inside or should
    it be open to everyone with stern warnings?

    I don't believe a "secret" forum would be compatible with
    the ideals of this forum.

    So, any suggestions for names? How would you like your
    forum served? I suppose we could have two, one for fun
    and one for Adult Content.

    What does everybody want and how can this site serve
    your needs?

    This place is really cool, isn't it?

    Some great suggestions. I think many will find more comfort with new forums while lurking and participating in the existing forums, while not offending people with religious beliefs (we have members who post directly from Middle East) or other reasons.

    I've love to hear what people think of these suggestions.

    As for names? Here's some of mine:

    Rick's Basement
    Rick's Cellar

    As my name is Rick I want points for posts in these new forums.:)

    I like Rick's Basement. As far as the turmoil goes, I still don't get it. If someone would be so kind as to IM me with whatever I missed that caused so many people to come, I'd be most obliged...

    Do the old timers want this change? I still feel new enough to not want to make too many changes too fast. I think the quality of this forum is due to a large part to the group present since the dawn of the internet.

    Better question would be do the old forum members feel comfortable with "anything goes" in Rick's Place.

    I doubt it, but they have surprised me many times, so who knows.

    The idea as I see it is to provide space for people to
    express themselves without offending anybody.

    This allows the forum to keep its current look and
    feel while accommodating other unrestricted ideas.

    I would hope we would see a strong consensus for
    this from everybody.

    Excellent point though.
    Maybe, Leon would consider Iming everyone
    to discuss it privately? What do you think?

    I'll ask in the old members community.

    Ahhh, the voice of reason!

    Thank you shinytop... You have a valid comment there.
    I can go either way.

    Maybe some kind of special indicator for people who don't want to look at the profanity and porn?

    If it's a goer how about "This could be the start of a beautiful freindship". No its too long isn't it. But something else from Casablanca would be appropriate. How about "Of all the lousy gin joints in the world.....".
    I'll keep working on this one.

    Awww god... Isn't that from Three's Company

    Who's Jack and who is Chrissy? ;)

    I figured since Three's Company was always about subtle and not-so-subtle sexuality that it was kind of fitting. :)

    As for Jack and Chrissy, I'll have to give that some thought. But I guess that would make you Mr. Roper or Mr. Furley...take your pick. :)

    I love sex, I couldn't be Mr. Roper. ;)

    How about we just call it Steve's Place and leave it at that? The rest of the old crew knows better by now. ;)
