What Happened To My Forum Posts-Eh Yahosers?

Yo JW and Admins-

I had well over 10,100 Forum posts - then ALL OF A SUDDEN and without notice - my count is reduced to 9700 - ??

WTF?? :a :a :a

Last time I lost posts - was years ago - when Tax screwed around with the Living Room and screwed a bunch of us out of post counts.

(btw - It is little Chicken Chit things like this that drive members away-eh yahosers!!)

Gaarry is having the same problems and other things- http://club.myce.com/f1/some-things-just-dont-have-words-311294/index193.html#post2698096

Well the forum had trouble with big numbers, like my age. LOL.:bigsmile:

I’d love to have my post count reduced to 9700, wanna swap places? :bigsmile:

Seems fixed now though :)…the hamsters probably went on strike, I don’t think it would have been anything personal :flower:

Yeah me too, when I had 10,000 posts I was 3 years younger. :bigsmile:

Arachne with 9700 posts? Wasn’t she about 17 then?

BigMike still shows less than 10,000. Sorry big guy, I’d fix it iffn I could.

LOL Kerry and Alan :bigsmile:

The loss of posts has been reported to DoMi and those that do the forum software stuffs, so hopefully normal service will be resumed soon :slight_smile:

This is incredibly strange. I have not changed anything and if we did something like that, we should have notified everyone about it first. I see your post count is no around 9900 Mike, does that mean it went from 9700 to 9900 already?

OK, bad news. Seán probably has the reason why your posts dissapeared. We got a Google complaint that we had to remove the daily thong quest within 72 hours (I think about 1,5 month ago, I was on holidays) or else all our advertisements would be disabled.

That would mean that due to that thread we could no longer keep the site up financially. So we had to act upon it and I deleted that thread. I terribly regret that and because I was on holidays it all went by without thinking about it again. Mind you, I was relieved that our ads were not removed or else I could shut down the site.

But that doesn’t mean it’s good that the Daily Thong Quest is removed, I understand that it has brought fun for a lot of people and if Google hadn’t complained, we certainly never removed it.

Once in a while I get these complaints, also often about threads in the Italian Forum from 2005 where they have been posting bad language or other stuff. It seems Google’s guidelines are getting tougher. As they are the main source of income I can’t do much else than obey them.

Mike, I’m very sorry that the thread is gone and that your posts are lost. All we can do is to artificially give you your post count back, is that something that would make up for the loss a bit? I’m really sorry for the inconvenience and I’m glad you reported it…

For what specific reason did Google have an issue with that thread?

I understand the need for advertising funds.
So I don’t have a problem with the decision on that basis.

What I have a problem with is Google censoring & micromanaging a site like this one.
I think the daily thong thread didn’t even make the soft porn category meaning it was less than soft porn.

Not that it’s my thing but anytime a person wants they can find hard porn with the Google search engine . Maybe Google doesn’t allow those advertising . But if Google is so particular then any porn site shouldn’t be found by the Google search engine.
They should be automatically blocked. In other words Google should clean its’ own house before cleaning house on sites like myce.
The above includes children being able to access the porn sites if their parents haven’t set blocks to those sites up. At most they might need to check a box that they are 18. I’m sure no 8 year old boy would falsely check a box .

With all the freakin Pron on the internet they had to pick on our thread? What a bunch of sissys.:wink:

Yo JW-

Thank you for the explaination.

I am sure that I had at least 3-400 posts in the Thong Thread. (just as I am sure that I had 15x-20x that in views of the Thong Thread),

No worries-eh!
(and I will encourage JC to watch his language too)

*(BTW - with all the fornicating going around in the Google headquarters (and amoungst the married management/owner folks too) - they should tend to their own business-eh thehosers!!)

Can Big Mike keep his thong collection.

Thanks for the understanding, much appreciated. You can also be sure that we won’t take away post counts. Might it ever happen then we would inform everyone about it and it would have to be a very, very, very good reason. So I doubt it will ever happen.

Regarding the complaint from Google, I’ve posted it at full in the staff forum yesterday (not sure if posting here violates any Google rule) but it’s not specific at all and we all don’t really understand what’s wrong. It talked about the following issues:

Completely naked
Pornographic images , videos or games
Pornographic cartoons or anime ( hentai / ecchi )

(complaint was in Dutch, translated with Google Translate)

I can find all of those with the Google search engine .

I don’t know how much response Google gives to site owners questions .
If Google will actually give you an answer. I would like you to ask why the Google search engine doesn’t filter or block sites that have exactly what they complained the removed thread had .
We all know how fast real porn can be found with the Google search engine.

I think they should give you specific posts that contained the offense .
I know Google probably won’t comply with that request .
But they should .
If you can tell them you wish to put the thread back with just the offending images , etc. removed.

I never looked at the entire thread but from what I did the images were borderline or less of what Google complained about.

You still have my nudie pics in the secret pron room

[QUOTE=Sexy_Southerner;2703835]You still have my nudie pics in the secret pron room[/QUOTE]
But that place is not indexed by Google, so the pics may stay there

I still deny that it exists
