    Humerous thread inviting people to join a WhatsApp group. Deleted instantly.

    Follow up thread deleted for no reason.

    Thread asking why they were deleted. Ignored by mods... then also deleted.

    Why? What’s the f*cking point? Don’t forget this forum was dying a slow death before the 1FF admin team acted like bellends so half the forum migrated here.

    Seems a brave move to act like equally massive bellends and expect people to stick around. Pointless busybodying and a lack of communication is hardly the kind of ringing endorsement that will keep the place busy.

    Sorry if it seems like I’m attacking all the mods/admins because if I’m honest it’s entirely since Stret started posting again so it’s not hard to figure out where to point the blame but it’s f*cking ridiculous.

    ManCityFanJess is allowed to post for well over a year despite clearly being a troll but worlds hardest creature or a questionnaire thread can get right in the bin staight away?

    I’ll accept that deleting a thread without comment doesn’t help people understand why it was done, so I’ll try to offer something of an explanation here.

    When it comes to the WhatsApp group there are a number of reasons we don’t think it should be publicly promoted on the forum. This is, by the way, in no particular order.

    One reason is that we have a rule about removing content that is designed to drive conversation away from the forum. WhatsApp does that by its very nature; it stands to reason that if a conversation is happening in the group, it’s not happening here.

    As an admin team we also can’t control or monitor the content of the group. The group could, for example, be used to coordinate bullying of an FF member, or it could be used to distribute NSFW content. I’m not saying the group does exist or is used for such purposes, but the fact that it could be is enough for us to not want it publicly promoted here.

    Another reason is that it creates a segregated group of users for which membership of the group could be seen as a status symbol or mark of acceptance. Exclusion from the group could therefore be taken as a rejection and a bit of a kick in the balls for some people. Cliques will no doubt always form in any social platform, but I don’t want to be providing the platform which promotes them.

    I have no problem with the group existing and being used; it’s clear that it’s helped some members form strong friendships and that’s great. However, please don’t publicly promote it on FF.

    Also, the staff are people too; please don’t throw the word bellend around so freely.

    I think some chat coordinated bullying of Matt is required.

    I think the MODS are spot on here.

    Shit threads ruin forums and lets be honest some of the mundane shit these Whatsapp nincompoops post makes ur eyes hurt.

    I'm happy this has happened and will enjoy my evening much more.
