My Feedback on This Site

  1. Nov 4, 2005 #1
    okay, i've been here once before, many times before, and i can still remember when you could post your personal theories in the theory developement forum, but now, if you even say something remotely close to "i think" in anything, your thread is deleted andyou're told to go strait to where ever.

    i personally think that's a load of bull. and "I" also "think" that it's the dumbest thing this site has ever done. i can say one thing positive about it, not too long ago is when they just told you to go to "bleepersville", but now, they've gotten enough brains to figure out that that's not nice or polite in any way and can cause a dramatic drop in members; so now they've got their own nice little pretty room set up called "Independent Research"...nice guys, great job.

    yea, but they're still gonna sit there and say "hey dude, you posted in the wrong spot, so i deleted your post, you should have posted over THERE ---->"...i guess they completely forgot that you spent ten minutes of your valuable time to type all of that and they ouldn't be kind enough to move it for you. oh well, i guess i can spend another ten minutes chewing their butts off about it.

    oh, and another thing...why delete the entire thread like some kind of jerk instead of just deleting the parts that were "unsatisfactory" to the "rules" (yea, great job with the rules too...it only represents a prison).

    Feel free to find another site that would be a better fit for you.

    The Staff makes the rules here, and the rules are not static. They evolve to be more in line with the objectives of the site. If PF is no longer a good fit for you because we no longer allow unrestrained, unmoderated speculation here then you will probably be happier somewhere else.

    One other thing:

    Anything that was deleted was most likely "soft" deleted, which means that it is still accessible to any member of the staff. So if you would like for a moderator to retrieve the deleted work and send you a copy (so that you can post it elsewhere of course), just ask.

    Are you getting the feeling that we're going around in circles?

    Actually, it's not. You can't leave a prison. :biggrin:

    yea, i'd like it back if you don't mind and i'd like for an appology from teh person who deleted it. they didn't even just move it to the right forum (i myself am a mod of another site, i know it takes less that one button to move a document).

    Was a moderator rude to you, or do you simply think that the act of deleting was rude?

    If it is the former then you can take it up with an Administrator member via Private Message. If it is the latter then I would like to remind you of our Policies, which you agreed to.

    From the PF Global Guidelines:

    If you posted any non-mainstream independent research, then according to the rules you agreed to it should have been deleted and you should have been notified with an invitation to submit to the Independent Research Forum, subject to the guidelines of that forum. If anything other than that happened to you then feel free to state your case privately to an Administrator.

    You don't have to ask the same moderator who did the deleting, you can ask any of us. I only mentioned this because your comments suggested that the post that was deleted is valuable to you, and that you thought it was lost forever.

    As for the complaint you registered in your opening post: retrieving your work and sending you a copy is all that can be done for you. The rules are not going to change just because you do not like them.

    OK, I'll track it down for you and email a copy.

    See my last post. If the deletion was done "by the book" then no one owes you an apology.

    i won't get it through email. i only get a chance to get it twice a week. it'd be best to just send teh copy through private message.

    I see that you've retrieved the work yourself and have submitted it to the IR Forum, so I will consider this matter closed.

    about my thread (Psinetic Core(TM))....i just don't see how one can conclude "hey, science has'proven' that propetual motion is impossible" gives any respective thought to close a topic. i don't give a crap if it can't be done, i want to try OKAY?!?!?!?!?! tom's right, no one can help me build a propetual motion device...that's why i'm dong it, and not them. i just need to know what i need to do to build the device i described in that thread. that's it. is that too hard for a physics site to do? come on..if it is that's the cheesiest thing i've heard form this site. i don't see one person in the entire world who can explain to me why they are the ones who created the universe and therefore know everything off the bat can or can not be done. you guys look at physics a specific way, i look at it different.

    the reason laws can't be broken is because you're trying to break them, and on top of that, you don't even know how to. this device will do it, and i can guarontee that. just because you say propetual motion does not exist does not mean it's true at all. idon't care how many tests you do, you're doing them wrong.

    now, this is a simple device to make, but i just don't have the measurements and need to know the specifics with it. i gave the instructions on what exactly i'm trying to do with it, whether or not propetual motion exists, it has absolutely nothing to do with how to build the device. JUST HELP ME OUT WITH THIS THING!!!!

    Scientists have not disproven perpetual motion. But then again, they also haven't disproven that invisible fairies are orbiting the planet Venus. Some message boards choose to allow discussion of such speculations as fairies and perpetual motion. Physics Forums is not one of those message boards. You agreed to that before you posted, and you have been reminded about it more than once. Get the hint, please.

    Then by all means try OKAY?!?!?!?!?!

    No one is stopping you.
