      I agree with Nomad. The negatives FAR outweigh the positives in this case.

      What most of the extremes are saying. Right now it seems more detrimental than beneficial for the community.
      The thing that concerns me the most is the reputation of the site getting destroyed. Things like heated political talks, which will involve bashing other parties etc. since it's unrestricted, are sure to bring trouble if leaked out on the social media.

      It definitely sounds lucrative but as pointed out earlier, it will be too difficult to handle/moderate.

      Having said that, the moderators will have their work cut out for them unless there's many of them around to do the job. Posting a new thread as well as replies in the said thread would be approved before others can view them.

      But that's kinda making you look like a dictator (Zia-ul-Haq) and you wouldn't want to be that. This is democracy! xD

      And if you're already thinking about pulling the plug should things become sour, well then you're better off with not going ahead with it at all.

      You start it then see it to the bitter end

Even if it can be taken off anytime but till that time damage would have been done (as stated by other team members)

      Suggestion: I think name of respective sub-section would also matter and we can gradually move towards such sub-section by gradually allowing such stuff. This way it can help us to monitor how its going and whether we need to proceed further or not and whether we need to make our sub-section policies relaxed or not. Same way you might have done when PG was launched and different policies would have added / removed with the passage of time.

      Thanks

      wow..super interesting responses and thank you

      Another question :
      would making chitchat cafe more lenient and incorporating a little more forgiving attitude, be better?

      So from what I've gathered the last time I was summoned in a thread is that PG lacks a healthy amount of daily posts with respect to the number of members. Although such an action would certainly help with that, because who doesn't like to vent every now and then?

      Initially I thought, great idea!! ButtThe thing to consider is,first we are a gaming forum. As I cannot judge how satisfactory video games related posts, content, and community contribution is at the moment, that would be my primary focus before looking at things like 18+ Chit Chat.

      Now to come back on topic, IMO such a section would cause higher moderation and administration efforts. I mean look at this:

      This will be for users with : more than 400 posts + recommended by a member already IN + over 18 years of age + at least 3 Achievements under their belt + (To-Be-Decided) % Weekly Activity
      I stopped reading after the first two criteria, because who cares if the entry criteria is so strict
      You have to look at it from a cost-to-benefit perspective.
      Why would I go through so much trouble as a new member when I'm already e.g. 30+ if I want to have some fun?

      If my vote counts for anything, go ahead and do a trial run and see how it works. But the only plus side (really!) I see of this action, is increased traffic where it doesn't really matter.

      Anyway, you can talk all the shit you want on the shoutbox if the mods aren't watching.. or just join them
