To find a middle ground that will make life easier for the hard working moderators here, while allowing the Male Ego community the freedom it is used to, I'm conducting an experiment.  To wit:

1) As of now, only unregistered guests or people designated "Male Eagles" can access the ME forum.  That way people who have no interest in it don't have to see it.

2) If you'd like access to it, please post a reply to this thread.

3) While it's understood the "Male Ego" board was sometimes moderated more lightly than other boards, and while there's no desire on anyone's part here to force everyone here to all think and act alike, it needs to be stressed that personal attacks are not necessary and not welcome.  The moderators of this board have graciously allowed me to have this forum here as way of keeping the ME community together, to give them a place on the internet to be.  Let's not abuse the freedom and opportunity we've been given by using it as a means to offend and abuse others.  To do so would be to soil all the hard work Junkstar put into the Male Ego community.

UPDATED 03/30/06 3 PM EST:

As of now the forum is read only.  No new messages or threads can be started in the Male Eagle forum. 

I'm sorry to say it was an experiment that failed.  The best example I can give is the last message posted:

http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php?topic=1213.msg30972#msg30972

Anyone from the former Male Ego board that has registered or wants to register is welcome to participate here, provided you can follow the same simple guidelines everyone else follows.  Whether you stay or not, thank you for making this board your home when Male Ego shut down.

My thanks to the moderators of this board who allowed me to start the ME forum. 

UPDATE 03/31/06:  A new forum called Male Ego Phase III has been started.  http://com3.runboard.com/bmaleego/  Check it out.

what's so great about "rowdy and rough" ? Just an excuse to be mean and ugly for the sake of free speech...

OH THAT IS JUST GREAT!!! Angry Angry Angry
I go to work and leave you scamps alone for the day, and look what happens!  Sorry about the rowdy boys, Charles.  Maybe if you wanna give it another go later, after the boys have had a good spankin and a dose of ritalin, then please, do it again.  I will miss the ego board deux.

Carly,

I'm sorry that you're disappointed! At first I was skeptical of the board and then I wanted it to work because I realized theres a community of people that would like to stay in touch. Unfortunately, there's a lot of negativity and people like to throw shots at Chuck (and other people) for the smallest reasons (I heard him sneeze the other day and someone had to bitch about it)...so I voted against having it on here. I think we have a great community here at SmileySmile, we have wonderful guest threads and great people keeping a good spirit around here. The negativity from the MaleEgo^2 board isn't worth wasting this websites bandwidth.

Personally, I don't see a second shot happening. Some people can never grow up. But who knows...it's not my final decision. I hope this doesn't affect your status as a member of SmileySmile.

Take care
-Joe

Sorry, Carly.  One of the things I had proposed was not having unregistered people post on the forum, but I think even that wouldn't have helped.  It was bringing the the worst out of too many people.   You are always welcome here.

The joke that closed that forum was a joke in response to an attack on a former board member. THAT attack should have shut that forum down, not the response. IMO.

Seems to me that strikes one and two should come before strike three...maybe i missed them, but maybe they were never called.

I'm not disagreeing with the action - i'm not agreeing with it either - just saying that fair warning is...fair.

Which is something i can't help but wanting.

Peace to all.

Susan,

A couple of threads were deleted, which started other threads complaining about Chuck for being power hungry. No one can ever be happy. I'm sorry we won't be seeing you around anymore. We've tried to be as fair as possible.

Take care

I think it was the attack that did it, or was the last straw.

Hi all.

Just getting a heads-up on the changes of the last few days. Bummer ! (can I say THAT here?)
Junkstar, if you read this, thanks for your efforts over the various Ego formats and servers over the years. Hope life is good.
Thanks to the Smiley people for letting us in.  Shocked
