Now that I have your attention ;)

The last few months have been tumultuous to say the least with political and Covid threads and it will probably get worse before it gets better. As an admin/mod we spend good parts of our time here stopping things that we shouldn't have to between grown adults. Quite honestly there are many that have less of an inclination to participate now because of this. If you find this post blunt then perfect you found it exactly as it was left and intended

The Zoo has been up and running for a few weeks. This is a private forum on this board where you can discuss politics, Covid, or whatever. This is an opt-out forum which means that by default everyone who is a member can see it. There is the opt-out option where you can choose not to see the forum or it's content if you don't want to be involved in that sort of discussion in your settings (see pic below or click link to the left). You can come and go as you please. If you do choose to be a part of that particular forum you know what you are getting in to no whining about hurt feelings. This doesn't mean there will be no moderation the TOS still applies especially when it comes to abuse and foul language

There will be no more of those threads on the main board. This will be moderated tight. For the first couple of weeks if you post in a politics, covid, etc in a thread on the main board the post will be deleted and you will be given a warning. After the grace period there will be infractions from a 24 hour ban to a lifetime ban depending on how often it is a problem. It is possible we miss something from time to time if we do please report it and it will be dealt with

Another issue we have been having here is bullying we have had a few members report about it. Bottom line if you can't be civilized go somewhere else. This is NOT going to turn in to Sid's board where a few ran everyone else off. If you are having issues again report it and if it's you causing the issues stop before we have to stop you

Have fun and enjoy

Please explain the difference between The Zoo and Jay Tea Vegas Hall of Fame? I thought the purpose of the Jay Tea Vegas was for discussion of ANY topic?🤔

JTV is for anything off topic but for ease of use we have created an opt out forum for Politics, Covid, Religion and other things some folks feel they see enough of everywhere else. If one chooses to not opt out it can safely be assumed that they are interested in the discussion being held. It gives people the chance to take a break from it too if they feel they want to get away for a while from this stuff you can opt out and opt back in at a later date

It also makes it easier on the mods. Most of the problems we receive reports on are associated with this or with a couple of members to the point where when I see a report I can narrow it down before I open it. If you opt in to the Zoo I feel you know what you are getting in to so the complaints should be less and everyone goes home happy

Quite honestly we have members who rarely participate here anymore because they are tired of the subject matter. We also have members who enjoy this subject matter The Zoo provides an opportunity for both
