I just experienced a very rude action from another community I belong to. I received an eVite to attend a live chat at another community. So I go sign in and enter the chat and we were discussing what we have been doing lately while we waited for everyone to show up. I mentioned I had been busy at another community and typed the name. Immediately my entries were deleted and the members turned hostile. I wont mention the community I wrote but I didn't link it - just mentioned it. An example of what I wrote is (Using Coolscifi as an example) "Yea, I have been busy over at Coolscifi doing staff duties trying to ready us for some Db cleaning" then WHAM - deletion of my entries. I am wondering how insecure a staff member must be that they would think that just mentioning another community would be a bannable offense? Unless there have been other members that caused hate and discontent I am unaware of? Now I believe people can run their communities anyway they wish but this incident tells me they don't care much to have me around so I will stay away. In reality, I understand that people have memberships to more than one community. Hell, my own community is based on promoting other peoples sites! I am not sure how Kevin feels on this matter but its my belief he is as open as I am on the issue. (Let me know if I am wrong:o) There is a solid line between spamming a board with adverts and just mentioning another site in idle conversation. While we all want our members to be dedicated to our communities its unlikely our communities are their sole participation. I am not so afraid of losing my members that I cannot bear the mere mentioning of another community. I even embrace it. I am sure many of us here at CoolSciFi have multiple memberships elsewhere. To me that just makes our community stronger. As proof in the face of adversity I ask all of you to link me to your other communities. Kevin, CoolSciFi moderators, this is NOT an attack on CoolSciFi's integrity. This is a chance for our members to share their interests. I will start, If I get banned for this then I guess I was wrong. http://z10.invisionfree.com/SF_Explorers/index.php?
