    dear senior/long time Adult Websites forum readers & posters

    due to the madhouse this particular forum has become and the lack of any type of disciplined and orderly posting on certain topics, i began a thread in the "Questions Comments Suggestions" forum roughly 7 weeks ago.

    Even the most basic new rules of operation to make the AW forum better and more organized have been ignored.

    the current problem in the AW forum is that all good threads, and any chance of creating "Mega threads" are drowning in a sea of stupid, irrelevant postings, endless 1 post thread requests for scenes, for ID's, non-labeling of videos which are not described properly and unfairly expose members to porn they do not wish to see.

    Also, posting loose scenes, no matter how good they are, that jam up the forum, then disappear so quickly that people either do not get a chance to see them, or there are so many bad ones that the forum looks like a parking lot.

    I have long been a contributor in the AW forum...i believe that contributing to a forum is what helps make it good...but recently, myself and several other content posters have stopped doing so. It is a free-for-all in here with no semblance of order, that could be very easily changed, except for the fact that nobody in the administration with the exception of Pecker has taken any notice or interest in the problem.

    I have decided to no longer post any found adult content, in any of my threads, or in any of the other threads here, until the administration takes an interest in creating and maintaining some form of order in the AW forum, by creating some basic sticky threads for the most basic of posts, whose unchecked posting of at the moment, are completely messing up the AW forum

    I know many of you from my time here, many of you feel the same way and have told me as well. Many of you may be thinking about the mess the AW forum has become, but just sort of let things be, much like i did for awhile.

    But there is no ignoring this now. The AW forum is an absolute mess, created by a lack of organization.

    I would like the AW Forum to be made better by employing some very simple changes, that are easy to enact, in the absence of larger forum reorganizations which are rather difficult.

    Changing the format and sections of the whole AW forum is a difficult task for the Admins...creating sticky threads is *NOT*.

    please go to this thread, read through it and voice your opinion if you are of like mind.

    Flashy _ I've been remiss on followups but I will try to stir
    those few with a concern into action or at least post an opinion.
    Add: You have made the case & its time for the Admin/MODS to act accordingly- looks like hud01 is now aware too.

    you know I belong to another forum where the mods move several threads a day and lock 5 or 10 a day for not following the rules. If this were done on a more regular basis then the garbage would stop.

    hud is absolutely right. The situation won't get any better concerning the users. The only way is more frequent moderator's actions.
    Still I don't think it's that bad when there's some discussion as long as it doesn't end like avg's "measured pornstars" thread.
    What maybe would help is a "ID this man/woman" sticky where you can post your question. Maybe a separation in gay/straight porn would also be helpful.
