    Since BHW changed from vbulletin to xenoforo is there any chance that rules could be relaxed in lounge to allow more topics with boot from thread option if someone actually starts flaming other people. If People are just peacefully chatting something with maybe just a little banter but not something too extreme it doesn't seem like an issue. A no flaming rule for any kind of topic not just the 2 certain topics mentioned in Lounge stickied thread, seems like it would be better. Does it really matter if someone is flaming someone over which is a better car or something political. Its still flaming, and still causing an issue.

    If someone opens 10 blatantly political threads in 1 hour they will probably be banned and maybe even permanently. Now if someone goes to download section and opens 10 threads within 1 hour with links to pirated materials that have a clean bill of health on virustotal, using an approved file host and not on the DNS list, nothing happens to them.

    We are on BHW. Let's all make some money and leave all the unnecessary shit aside for one platform at least. :)

    It doesn't matter where you come from, what you believe in, gender, etc on here, all are being treated with the equal amount of respect.

    Let's keep it that way. Please.

    I agree with hekke, the lounge is not really important, it's just a place to go to ease people from the more serious stuff of building websites and making money.
    It's a bit of a distraction, like a chillout lounge in a nightclub. Best left as is

    Well No Flaming is still going to prohibit flaming, and with a kick from thread feature it would get people in line faster than just locking/deleting threads.


    As for it being a distraction if certain things were allowed, its nonsense lounge is already a distraction if someone doesn't have the motivation to work.

    Is that rule just something that is going to have to remain in place due to legal reasons , since BHW is UK based with UK owner ?
