Why is MilkyWay's hug question kicked back for editing?

Asked by Adirondackwannabe (36648points) February 3rd, 2012

Mellow out mods. That was a nice light feel good question. It didn’t deserve that. I’m guessing this lasts about 5 minutes too.

Did you ask MilkyWay or Auggie directly? There might be a reason you haven’t thought of… :-/

@JilltheTooth Ever the voice of reason. No I just got pissed and typed before I thought. I do that sometimes. (A lot?) Thanks.

Editting? Better hope this gets kicked back for editing.

Editing the Editting. Fluther is sublime, no?

maybe not enough hugs were being handed out?

@Adirondackwannabe I’ve noticed a lot of odd modding since last night.

It’s a tough call, because it’s such a sweet gesture. We used to allow the occasional hug thread, but they got out of hand so we started modding them. Even though there hadn’t been one in a while, we thought we should be consistent and remove hers as well. Sorry, guys.
We did give her a hug in the editing notes, though.

@augustlan Thanks very much. I understand now. It was a sweet gesture from a sweet jelly. It torqued me first thing in the morning before my coffee kicked in.

Hugs to everyone!

How about a fondling thread? Are we due for a “Hey would anybody like a fondle?” question?

King_Pariah's avatar

it’d be nice if we could do it once a month like the TJBM threads

chyna's avatar

I’m up for a fondling thread! Heck, I’m just up for fondling!

cookieman's avatar

Okay, sooo… @chyna‘s down for one (enthusiastic) fondle. Great, anyone else?

Perhaps a grope?

rebbel's avatar

I have an idea!

SpatzieLover's avatar

I’ll bring the pancakes.

chyna's avatar

No secrets @rebbel. Tell all of us!

rebbel's avatar

@chyna I’ll PM you now.
@OtherJellies soon you’ll all know!

O goody. Secret messages to be revealed! Stay tuned. And I didn’t even have to use my Captain Midnight decoder ring!

I’m sincerely not wanting to dispute the system here, or bitch and criticize at all; I’m seriously genuinely curious. How come we can have ’‘nonsense’’ threads but not hug threads? Is it because otherwise, there are too many hug ones? I do remember back when it was allowed that there were plenty of them…(edit; oh wait that IS why. Sorry. Nevermind lol)
Again, just wondering, not complaining at all here. But I will mass hug everyone in here, haha.

@Symbeline – I’ll take one of those hugs (as long as you haven’t become a zombie yet), and I’ll even give you one back.

Bellatrix's avatar

I have to say, it wasn’t just removed either. A question was asked about ‘should we leave it there or not’. I was in take it down camp. I felt this way because we have taken down other (also favourite) jellies ‘let’s have a hug’ questions and what if it had been a new jelly? Someone we don’t all lurve as much as @MilkyWay? Should we leave them there too?

If we aren’t consistent, it just becomes unmanageable.

I do send you a huge hug though @MilkyWay.

@Bellatrix GA I was a little harsh in asking this, althought I’m glad I did. I learned a bit and it made for some fun. You guys do an awesome job.

Berserker's avatar

@Bellatrix Well, aye. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t even be on here if the rules applied to some, but not others. The consistency is, of course, a good way to go.

Sunny2's avatar

I still don’t understand. What rule or principle was broken? What was the infraction? Do we have a list?

King_Pariah's avatar

It’s nice to see it back up. :)

FutureMemory's avatar

@Symbeline When you say “aye” it reminds me of when I used to play online role-playing games :P

Berserker's avatar

@FutureMemory I just watched Pirates of the Caribbean the fourth. That explains that. But role playing games rock all ass!

digitalimpression's avatar

Excellent job mods. I’ve had my run ins with the mods as well, but 99% of the time I’m wrong 100% of the time.

Mad props to the mods for being fair and consistent.
