What happened to the Erogenous Zone??

What happened to the erogenous zone?
Is it just me or can other people no longer access it?

I think something happened to it, possibly rebuilding data base or the SQL server is down for some reason.

These guys have pulled the erogenous zone before, wouldn't be surprised if they pulled it again on purpose...

Too many leechers (you guys) and not enough support.

You = traffic = money.

Too much of you = need new server = need lots more money.

Consequently,

Absolutely no influx of donations = no soup for you.

If you guys cannot see what this forum truely is, well... I'll hold my tongue. I don't put in several hours of my day every day to keep together a porn site. Hmm.. wait.. I do, but I actually get paid for that job. This job is must more mentally rewarding. That's why when shit gets slow, the porn is the first to go. I can do without it.

Don't get all internet punk on me because you know nothing is ever totally free.

I can not believe the audacity of some of you. Did you happen to check out the other forums? Nah thats too tough when your looking for the quickest way to get youselves off. I don't happen to visit the porn sections on a regular basis because im too busy reading and commenting on productive posts that actually challenge me and make me less ignorant of the world around me. Try any of the forums here, you will find yourself changing your reasons for comming here. If not, well then you don't belong here.

Advice: If you don't wish to donate, then the least I can ask of any of you is to check out the rest of the site (you know, the discussion sections). I encourage you all to find a subject that interests you and start a conversation. I doubt many of you will be disappointed. You undoubtedly read the tagline of the TFP at least once; I'm inviting you to see how well it lives up to it.

Grouchy members will find that their gripes have been heard before, as this is the 3rd time I've had to do this in the site's 3 year history. It's a necessary action to preserve my bank account, the server's hardware and the loyalty of the site's longterm members. I am loyal to those who are loyal to me, so if you show my site the respect I believe it deserves, you will get your eye candy back.

No, it means, "Thanks to those who have donated. The money you have given is being used directly to support the life of the TFP. Unfortunately, there is not enough of you to support the continued existence of every single feature of the site, so until we obtain more funds to upgrade our server to handle the traffic and to pay the bandwidth overages, the less important (and most resource-hungry) areas of the site will be shut down."

Those who have donated have the right to ask questions about their situation. Those who have not should not assume the role of "champion of the donators" since they are not one.

Get off Halx back g-holes. The fact is that section gets 10 times the flow of any other site, and in reality all it is is free porn. There are hundreds of ways to create BB's and for cheap too. If you think its easy to run, start your own G-d damned porn board, and see how long it last before you explode.

Halx- thanks for having it while you did. I myself am sort of a hypocrit because I stopped posting in philosophy etc for a while- new job, no time etc. I know I'll stay around and enjoy this FREE entertainment outpost, and I'd even have donated (but the wife would castrate me :P )

Thanks Halx

well its all good if I say so myself....I was all over the site so I ain't mad about losing the porn section even though the links came in quite handy. Once my orange business picks up I wont have any probs donating but till then I can't do jack shit so no complaints coming from me on Halx decision. If you want the porn then DONATE and if your here to leach then DONATE or you will lose it quick. I will send some money when I get paid on friday (probably 20 bucks but hey, it helps)...

What is the guarantee that after an influx of donations this whole situation will not repeat itself? After all you did say that this is the third time in three years. I can understand where you are coming from but there has to be some sort of game plan here other than donate to get your eye candy back. I am new to the forum and will donate because I enjoy the conversation here. It is unfortunate to see sections stripped without notice however.

I'm still new to this Forum, and came becuase of disscusion while the tittie board was down and thought it was something new after many revisits.

So, I have heard that you have to be so active to get into certian boards. Maybe the Erogenous Zone should become one of those.

I don't think you should have to pay to get in, just participate in the other aspects of this site. And this would hurt a lurcker like me, but I think that those who are true to the site will have the erogenous zone as the place the visit before the go to sleep after posting. Cause thats what I do

Ahem.

Some folks seem to be unclear on what a "donation" acutally is. Some of you seem to be confusing it with a "purchase."

donation : the act or an instance of donating : as a : the making of a gift especially to a charity or public institution b : a free contribution : GIFT

A donation is a gift. You get nothing in return except a warm fuzzy feeling in your heart.

I'd imagine those of you bitching about this are the ones with the least amount of clue reguarding the resources necessary to keep a site like this going.

Thanks for the freebies, if they come back, 'great', if they don't 'not great'. Ultimately one has to appreciate the TFP and appreciate that it needs cash. Perhaps I'll spend some more time thinking and trying to be witty chatting in other forums than beating the monkey. probably be good for me. Thanks admins anyway.

I am on a high-speed connection. Because of inadequate server power to handle all users, I was experiencing an avewrage of 5-minutes per page load. Donations will be pooled and used to purchase a new server. Once we have a server that is powerful enough to handle all the traffic we had before the shutdown, we will restore full access. You base doubts on the fact that this is the third time in three years. The fact is, it came back the first two times. The first time, enough donations came in that we were able to upgrade to a faster configuration.

The simple fact is that the porn is not the main focus of the site. The main focus is the members who actively participate in the forums. That is the part of the site that we want to promote and emphasize. We'd like to leave it open to everyone and let them all have their way, but the fact is that something has to go if the site can't support everyone. The people who contribute to the TFP and make it a community are the ones who get preferential treatment. If people don't like that, they are free to stop visiting the site. After all, everyone who does not own the server is merely a visitor. I dontated, but I don't own part of the server, therefore I am a member who has been chosen to help run the site. I don't have a contract, I don't get paid, I just help out because I want to help the site keep running. I am free to leave at any time. I can say, "Sorry, I'm not going to be here anymore," and my account will lay dormant until the end of time; If Halx thinks I'm becoming a problem, he can ban me in three clicks and show me that I'm not welcome here anymore. After all, I'm just a visitor.

I don't know if this will do any good, but I might as well give it a try. Last night, afte taking 20 minutes to log in, I raised the issue and suggested that the porn be removed until we could get a faster server. It was discussed briefly, our staff came to a consensus, and Halx made the final decision to pull the plug. The point of saying this is that I am just another visitor, not the owner of the server, not an admin, and I was the one who raised the issue. If you want to give someone shit for the decision, maybe I'm the one to aim at.

The first time the porn got pulled, I frowned a bit, looked around at everything else the TFP had to offer, and decided that it was worth my time to get my hand off my dick and onto the keyboard. I hope that some of you who are frowning now can do the same and see what a great thing we have going on the rest of the board. If you aren't satisfied and don't want to stick around, all we ask is that you do so peacefully not steal the silverware or punch the waiter on the way out.

I appreciate the quality response. It makes sense when you really think about it. I hope you don't feel that my post was in anger for I was just curious about the changes. Im not looking to place the blame on anyone because their are greater problems in life than pulling the plug on porn. Im sure that most will agree. Keep us posted on the progress if you will!

There are 100's of other free sites if all you want is porn. At least here you can have a good read or a laugh. Probably safer to view this forum from work PC's now the porn has gone too.

Fair enough. I'd suggest letting only the donators access the EZ, as an incentive to make people donate, because then they know that if they donate, they get their porn back.

Thanks for everyone's understanding. The main point that I wanted to get across is that there are other ways to earn back your access. We desire meaningful participation above all. Go out into the forums and get involed responsibly. Make sure you read the rules of the forum in the Newbie board first, though. We have a promotion system that is based on performance review. I do guarantee, though, that if you do get approved to gain access to the EZ again, it wont matter to you nearly as much as the rest of the forum.

One thing to keep in mind, if you have been a member since 2003 and you are still a rookie, don't expect much sympathy. If your total post count can be counted on one hand after you have been here more than a month, don't expect much sympathy.

Do you have to donate money to have "full access"? No. Do you have to contribute? Yes. Think about it, you may just be enlightened.
