Comments ON or OFF
Over the past few months we have been keeping a close eye on the comments in secrets.
Not only the comments but the replies to comments.
It has come to our attention more and more of you either do not understand our rules about commenting, or just dont care.
Because of this we will now be coming down a lot harder on comments being turned on or off.
You will find a lot more secrets now will have comments turned off, even if a secret teller ask for the secret to have comments on.
This of course is not saying all secrets will have comments turned off.
The reason behind this is far too many of you are leaving some of the meanest comments I have seen in quite some time. Far too many of you have been arguing with each other, as well as chatting with one another about things that have nothing at all to do with the secret itself.
DAS is not your personal chat site, it is not a forum for you to have a little chitchat.
Comments should only be comments supporting or helping a secret teller.
There are many ways a person can do this, please find a way to do so within our rules.
Over the past few months the comments posted have been getting worse and worse, we are very disappointed in the over whelming immaturely in some ( not all ) or the comments passing by DAS lately.
You have all been asked on more then one occasion to follow our simple rules. But even after been reminded ( some of you many times ) some of you still think it's ok.
Well thanks to you, you have ruined it for those that do follow our rules.
We ask you please to follow our simple rules. Dont ruin it for everyone.
If over the next few months we dont see a large improvement we will be forced to take further action.
We are very sorry to those of you who do support DAS, who do follow the rules, who do contact us letting us know when people step out of line so we can get things sorted out quickly.
We are also sorry you are the ones who have to pay the price for others stupidity
We hope all of you understand why this is happening.
We also hope from now on each and everyone of you will start to follow our rules so things can go back to normal again.
Remember don't use DAS as a place to argue, or chitchat. Note each other or leave a message on that persons page, DON'T do it on DAS.
If ANY of you come across ANY comments you feel shouldn't be there for what ever reasons. Please send us a note with a link to the comment you are talking about.FAQ #14: How do I create a link to a specific comment?
This is DAS it is not a place to attack a secret tellers art skills. It is not a place to attack a secret teller for spilling their heart and soul.
Comments like "You suck / You need to be shot / WTF kinda heartless bitch are you " These comments are not wanted or needed.
Please refrain from replying to other users commenting on their signatures. You can comment on their front page or note them if you like, but please dont do it on secrets. Lets try to keep it relevant to the ST and their secret.
DAS is not a school. We have people aged 13 sending secrets in, from countries all over the world. All from different backgrounds. In secrets, spelling or grammar that isn't perfect is not a problem. DAS is about getting a ST's secret out, not to make them feel stupid or dumb because their spelling or grammar isn't up to your standards. You are more then welcome to comment about a persons secret. But we do not accept comments about people correcting someone's spelling or grammar.
