"Offtopic" section is turning into one big trigger thread

Discussion in 'NoFap Technical Support and Feedback' started by TrueHuman, Jul 1, 2016.

    Sorry, but recently I've seen triggering post like
    "To shave or not to shave? (Trigger Warning)"
    "thoughts on girls not shaven"
    "Putting on a condom"
    "Do your gf/wife make your fantasies come true ?"
    "⅓ of British women only wear their two favourite bras on rotation!"

    Come on guys? Some people can see these threads and be triggered. Maybe I'm being to hard on it, but I believe these post are p-subs. A person with OCD can really be messed up by even seeing a post title like these.

    Please be more considerate. Thanks

    I agree there has been a slight drift in that direction of late. I think those topics can be effectively discussed in the off topic section but the OPs should take care to make sure the thread title itself is not triggering. Additionally it is very easy to wrap overly triggering thoughts in spoiler quotes within the context of the actual message.

    On the side of the reader, off topic is probably a good section for reboot candidates to avoid in general (jmo).

    I agree
    Even tho this is off topic, it's NoFap website after all.
    People think that off topic could mean absolutely anything ranging from posting vids of women in bikini to literally porn

    There's a thread about women's shaving habits every other week and into always descends into virtue signaling and idiots saying that anyone who doesn't like hairy women is a pedophile. Please tell me the women here can see through this bullshit even if they agree with the general principle.

    I thought this websites was been administrated? I wonder if I came to the wrong forum/wrong time. Was hoping to find a place to contribute/document my own progression, and help others along the way.
  6. What is holding you back from contributing and documenting your own progression?

    Well not in a sense of holding back, but less inclined to post now that I seen the nature of certain boards which the above posters already shared what it's about.

    Hopefully it will become more matured and moderated in foreseeable future. If not, it's just a section to re-active triggers in ones mind, and just discourages newcomers to even post/create a thread, from my point of view @alexander

    Because the question is:
    What's the point of been on a forum, if it will just re-initiate the triggers because of the topics been shared? I am sure that has to do with staying mentally strong, at the same time, one has to remember that not everyone is mentally strong in the first place, if so we all would have stopped PMO much more easily.


    So it's something I think to bare in mind of what newcomers feel when they see some of the sections on here.

    No one has said that. You complain about the views of others, referring to this example as "this bullshit". But we are all free to express our opinions. If you do not like the threads on that subject, feel free not to read them. No one is forcing you. :rolleyes:

    I cannot agree with you about this @TrueHuman. All I can suggest is that you refrain from perusing the off topic section.

    I agree with @TrueHuman's complaint, and would love to see some more maturity, intelligence, and self-discipline in the:
    • choice of topics
    • naming of the threads
    • quality of the content and ideas
    • placement in the correct sub-forums
    ... throughout the entire Forum, but perhaps especially in the "Offtopic" section.

    The Moderation team is doing its best to maintain order and maximize the user-experience, but even just a tiny bit more consideration from each of those who until now perhaps did give thought to this issue ... will quickly raise the value of this tremendously-valuable website to an even higher level! :D

    You know that something is wrong if multiple peoples are seeing the same problem @alexander I do hope something will be done about this shortly. If of course, the goal is to introduce more peoples to this forum, but if it's the other then it's definitely doing its goal to make peoples go away from the forum.

    I disagree @Yesodi. "Putting on a condom" - what the hell is wrong with that? Why do you want to censor references to safe sex for God's sake. Here is a guy who actually wants to have a real sexual experience rather than a pixelated fantasy and you want to "maintain order". That is outrageous! We do not want a politically correct site where people cannot ask legitimate questions. That is an appropriate topic, title and content. Can't you see that? :confused:

    Actually, it is a handful of people. The rest of the thousands of us are very happy with the site how it is thank you Brian!

    Well seems like I came to the wrong place after all, was fun while it lasted. Thank you. Hope all goes well with the forum, and your business to help others imrpove their lifes @alexander After all, one man's voice is meaningless from what I am seeing, right?

    If you cannot tolerate the views of others then you are, indeed in the wrong place. Take your self-righteousness elsewhere.
  16. BrianHM

    It's not about been self-righteousness nor selfish, rather you know the section has misleading threads, yet you state its okay, while on someone else's end they're struggling, but gets re-activate/triggered again because of the misleading topics, but alright.

    I hope all goes well in your journey as well. Thank you for voicing your own insights. It's easy for someone to just label someone else on the internet, without realizing what kind of effects each part of the forum can do to another person.

    But I am just selfish right? I shall leave it here, any part of me partaking in this discussion will not get me anywhere, aside from just banging the keyboard and hope the words gets across (which of course won't happen) since we all see different side of the coin.

    Maybe I should have clarified that my agreement with @TrueHuman's complaint was at the general level, and not necessarily with any of the specific example threads he quoted

    And I also tend to agree that we need to find the proper balance regarding the point @Flossy Carter mentioned. On one hand, there definitely should be a place for "Offtopic" threads. And while I think that, overall, these should nevertheless try and maintain at least an indirect connection with NoFap.com's main ideas, there does seem to also be a place for "truly" offtopic topics. Still, I must admit that some of the threads occasionally succeed in triggering a deep "WTF?!" feeling in me. o_O

    YOU called yourself selfish - that is your prerogative. Similarly, if you are unwilling to listen to another view then go away.
    By the way. This post ^ "MEETING PORNSTARS!", is from a different section. This is far more triggering than anything in the examples given here!

    Yes, indeed!

    @BrianHM: neither your voice, nor that of any other individual member who seeks to respectfully raise their opinion (as I feel you have), is "meaningless" in this Forum!

    And @SnL, you know that I greatly respect your valuable and numerous contributions to this Forum, but I respectfully request that you show a bit more tolerance towards others' views. You need not agree with everything that everybody says.
