New Year, New Changes. Any Suggestions/Requests?
Chief Cheetah posted a topic in The Locker RoomOK folks So in the new year we are looking to have a bit of a spring clean. We'll be reviewing all forum areas and content so don't be surprised of some things move around a bit. With that in mind is there anything you would like to see more of? Less of? Something new? The forum is only as good as it's members and it you folks that make it worthwhile. All suggestions will be considered so don't hold back. I shall try to answer any questions you may have on here. but if you want to message me directly then I can assure you I will remain anonymous (if that's what you want). One we start to make any changes I shall endeavour to document them all into a new thread so you can see what was new. Anything we change or adopt from one of your suggestions you will of course where appropriate be acknowledged publicly.

What's the story behind your handle
Cathedral Bobby + posted a topic in The Locker RoomI am often amused by the handle people choose for themselves on the site. A few people use their real names, whereas most, myself included, use a made up one. Mine, Cathedral Bobbie is based on my job as a Cathedral Constable. What's behind your handle, do tell.
open Member Of The Year 2015
Chief Cheetah posted a topic in CompetitionsWho will be our member of the year for 2015? It could be you! Over the last 12 months we have been keeping a league table for members where they receive points depending on contributions to the forum. To see the league table CLICK HERE. These are the current standings. At the end of the December the member with the most points will win our Member Of The Year 2015 title and a £30 voucher for Police-Supplies.co.uk The question we have for you now is, do we owe you any points? You can win points for a variety of things and we have tried to keep up with the awarding of them, however, we have possibly missed some here and there. A list of what you can win points for can be found by CLICKING HERE and we want you to check that you have the appropriate points for the appropriaten actions. If you believe you are owed some points then please PM a mod, explain what you think you are missing points for and if possible provide a link back to it. You will notice the last few entries on the points list don't specify an amount, this is becasue Mods have the ability to award any amount of points they wish for any actions they see as deserving. If in doubt just ask. It's a close run competition at present and we are sure many more points are going to be added throughout December, so don't miss out and ensure you check your total is correct, once the award has been made at the end of December any requests for missed points will not count. There will be only one winner in the event of a draw on points the overall winner be decided by the Adminstration and Moderation team. Good luck Cheetah

Soap's forum roundup what he does sometimes at no specific regular interval roundup.
Soap + posted a topic in The Locker RoomHello, and welcome to this edition of "Soap's forum roundup what he does sometimes at no specific regular interval roundup." or the 'sfrwhdsansrir' for short. I've not done this for a while because i've been very busy doing things of... uh... great importance and uh... relating to national security or something... Anyhow. 1. Blue Light Use Off Duty mastermind21970 asked if there was any legislation around warranted officers using blue lights off duty. This did however worry some members of the forum who believed mastermind21970's intentions were to actually fit blue lights to his personal vehicle. However, lecturing and warning aside, it poses an interesting question around the legislation that is actually answered later in the thread by our resident traffic wardens officers. 2. Update on: Primark Security Guard Grabs Baby SparkyDale provided us an update on a news story that broke earlier in the year involving a security guard who allegedly snatched a baby from a breastfeeding mother. This later turned out to be fake and Primark made a very good stand against the woman rather than paying compensation and hushing her up. The woman is now facing prosecution, the whole thread makes for good reading if you haven't already. 3. That guy with no legs. This thread I have taken particular interest in. The Original poster quite literally has no legs, and is attempting to join the police. Some members of the forum are offering their support, and asking him to us posted. He has moved away from the police for now, but I for one wish him the best and hope he does keep us updated on his endeavours. 4. Officers deliver a baby in Telford Not like delivered as like a pizza, but that they helped the woman to give birth to the baby. That'll be a fun story to share when the baby grows up. 5. And Finally, in the Forum General Chat Thread @Nim is getting excited about christmas, much to @David 's dismay, and we discover the real identity of @TheFlomeister ... See you next time (after an undefined interval) for the next sfrwhdsansrir!
Reddit shuts down 'harassing' forums
Fedster + posted a topic in Real World NewsSocial news site Reddit has shut down five of its forums because they were being used to "harass individuals". The closures follow an announcement in May, when Reddit said it would be enforcing its anti-harassment policy more vigorously. More closures of other chat forums, or sub-reddits, would follow if they too were abused in the same way, it said. The action has been widely criticised, with some saying it marks a significant policy shift for the site. Many Reddit members responded by flooding the site with images related to the banned forums or directing abusive comments to the site's administrators. Banning behaviour The closures were announced in a post placed on Reddit, saying the sub-reddits had been banned because they had broken community rules on harassment and the forum's volunteer moderators had not taken action to stop the behaviour. The sub-reddits directed abuse towards overweight, black and trans people as well as gamers. The post said Reddit's operators wanted as "little involvement as possible" in overseeing what people said to each other on the site. However, they said they would intervene when privacy and free expression were threatened or if people suffered abuse. In a separate explanation, Reddit added that the sub-reddits had not been banned because of the opinions expressed within them. Instead, it said, those forums had been used to recruit gangs of people who had then subjected someone to sustained harassment. And this "brigading" had affected the lives of people being picked on, who "worry for their safety every day, because people from a certain community on Reddit have decided to actually threaten them, online and off, every day". "We're banning behaviour, not ideas," it said. Other forums that people found distasteful or annoying would not suffer bans unless they too prompted offline action against people, Reddit said. It encouraged Reddit users to report sub-reddits engaged in sustained abuse. The announcement and bans sparked a huge debate on the site, with the main discussion thread garnering almost 25,000 comments. Reddit members who commented said the ban was "horrible", "not well thought out" and a "bad business decision". Others argued that it was better to keep a "bigoted community" in a separate sub-reddit because shutting that down would mean the abuse would then spill over into other forums. Commentators pointed out that similar decisions to ban discussions by social news site Digg had started an exodus from that site and ultimately led to its demise. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-33093888 Just goes to show what a badly run forum can lead to.
