CTF Survey - Finished. Results in final post.

Post by Harvey Williamson » Mon Oct 19, 2020 8:30 pm

What do members think about our Chess Thinkers subforum (CTF)? There are 3 options below please reply in this thread with either 1, 2 or 3. One post per member only. Any other content will be deleted. We can not run this as a poll as since the forum upgrade polls are broken. This will run for 7 days.

1. CTF should continue as it is now.
2. CTF should be closed
3. Allow CTF to continue as a hidden forum only visible to those who request access.

I don't participate there because of the vitriolic content, but, if you close it, some of those (off) topics might easily spill over in here.

I vote 3.

I used to be a frequent poster there, but left many years ago when the nastiness level became unacceptable. Nonetheless, a small fraction of posters there do produce civil and thoughtful/meaningful posts that add value. So, for their benefit, I'd like to see continuation. But many others should be permanently banned IMHO.

All the best,
-Steve-
