Was a bad idea LB.. Yall gotta do better.. You know it's fucked up when the only thing that's keeping this site from OFFICIALLY dying is when the members complain about how dead it is and yall hide the threads at the bottom of the site where NO ONE looks.

There's been a few "Where did that one thread go? Did those homos delete it?" moments. Don't destroy our General section, It's all we got left..

But knowing yall, if it does die out, It'll be making a dramatic return with the V4 package like it's something we've never experienced before.

Do better...

I know it's all very frustrating. We are doing everything we can and more. Please be patient and have faith in us. In the meantime continue everything you do to keep the site active

^You can't do more than everything you can.

The purpose of having a Complaints section isn't to "hide" anything so no one can see them. All registered members can still see this forum. If we want no one to see them, we would just delete the threads, but that's not what we're doing. Everyone has a right to air their opinions/complaints even if its against the site itself. Other sites don't allow these sorts of threads to be posted in their equivalent of a "general talk" area and there's a reason for it. It's something we should have instituted a long time ago. The fact is, there's a thin line between complaining about how things are going on the site and bashing the site and whether its one or the other can be a matter of perspective. Our forums are open unlike other sites, which means you don't have to be registered to view the forums. You can log out right now and still come back to the forums and be able to read pretty much everything but the chatbox. The only difference between the Complaints forum and General Talk is that unregistered members and people that are not logged in can't see it. If you log out, you won't see the Complaints section. Why did we make it like that? Well imagine you are a potential future member who discovered LB either through google or other means and you decide to browse the forum first to see if you actually want to sign up. Then the first thread you see in General Talk (because its visible to unregistered users) is "LB Sucks," or "Wow this place is dead" or something similar. Do you think most people would sign up after that? You guys are making all these complaints because you care about LB and would like to see it in a better shape. But when you make threads like this in General Talk (or when we allow it there), you're actually hurting the site's potential for new members. That's why we made the Complaints forum--so you guys can continue to air your complaints about the site without it necessarily impacting potential membership. Everyone who is registered can still read these threads and respond if they choose to. If you love LB as much as you say you love it, you gotta understand that.
