They stopping the Forum or did you get fired for spending to much time on it?

I thought the Kitty Dump was supposed to be where you went when you wanted to post something that was off topic...what did you post to make them so angry....and yes I'm assuming it was you :-)
It wasn't me, I think.

This is always a touchy subject for most forums I go to.
Pretty much in every case the "Overlords" do not like to be questioned regardless of how little or much leniency they are willing to give.
Company forums, like this one, are probably best served by having a "No off topic" policy as they do not want comments to reflect on their company.
I get that, but at the same time I think that tends to destroy the community. Are you going to continually check into and stay on a forum that only consists of you answering the same questions over and over? That's why the more seasoned and best "Question answers" tend to leave forums with this policy.
But as I always say....not my sandbox, not my rules.
It's probably my fault... or my lack of tolerance for someone who was so vile.

They are still making and using Inventor? I can make that joke since I had a long term contract that used it and I had to teach Inventor for a few semesters at the now defunct ITT...
Ask the Flaw. He brags about it aaaaalllll the time.
According to some here, SWX isn't perfect. I say; it's got to be your workflow or your graphics card.

Are you going try and get every thread locked by injecting political content?
You would have thought will all the moderation that's been happening lately any objectionable content could have been rejected before it ever made its way on to the page.
ryan priddy locked the Favorite Quotes thread as well.
I'm curious to see if he keeps locking "Off Topic" threads.
This may be another attempt to get folks to migrate to the 3D Experience forum.
He is the SOLIDWORKS 3DEPERIENCE Digital Community Manager.

Maybe the fact that they do have to moderate these highlighted the issue even more?It's not an easy seat to fill to moderate a public forum. I agree though, that it would have been a better approach to reject the posts rather then let them go on and then lock the topic.
Easy way out I guess.
That would also explain the awful moderation going on, and the less then plausible excuse of ''it's not on our side, it's on Jive''

Ho ho ho. Any conversation thread more than a few posts long becomes so tricky to follow it would be naturally self-extinguishing.
Hey Everyone,Kitty Dump is unlocked. The content there posted by a few individuals violates the policy the members here wrote before my time as the community manager. Numerous posts a day come to my inbox flagged for abuse from several different threads with reasons why it should be removed and the individuals be banned. So that leaves three decisions on the table:
1. Adhere to the community policy "no politics, religion, name bashing, personal attacks" people who continuously violate it are banned from the forums.
2. Adhere to the community policy above and if the entire thread has ventured off course lock the thread
3. Filter all the post flagged for abuse and remove each post before it gets published
If politics and religion were left out of these threads this wouldn't be a topic of discussion.

And the inconsistent points system. Some people get points every day, most don't.
Yesterday I got points for the first time in about 2 months.
Yes, I know that the points mean nothing. The inconsistency is just another symptom of the decline of this forum.
LOL this got political fast
