I made a link to a unfolding discussion this afternoon to a discussion on Pillowfort started by a fan named Drift. The fan was angry about the changes in the Terms of Service and stated that they were "disturbed" by it. At least seven (at last count) fans responded saying they didn't understand Drift's point of view. One fan said they were very happy about the TOS as they were thirty years old and someone their age enjoying it was creepy. Other fans chimed in with messages of support for the TOS, and didn't understand why Drift was "disturbed." I was going to archive the conversation, but wanted it to become larger. Sometime, between 2 and 6 pm, the post disappeared, and was replaced in the same link with a message that had the same introduction: ("I’m very disappointed and frankly disturbed by the updated community guidelines regarding explicit content and I am sincerely considering asking for my money back...") but veered off into a different avenue, one that was more supportive of the TOS. I don't know if the original fan deleted their their post (and all the replies), or if staff did, but in any case, it's odd. I wish I'd archived it sooner. post overlay; archive link --MPH (talk) 00:48, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
- Perhaps some info? Drift (not original post), original post, now gone Archived version --MPH (talk) 00:45, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
- More info is Hi if y'all don't tag your BetaUsers posts about the TOS change I'm about to spam y'all with requests to tag your posts about the TOS change; archive link -- it appears to be a situation of etiquette, face-saving, discourse, and control. --MPH (talk) 16:55, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
large scale deletion?
The last edit comment says only added more examples to section on user control and privacy, but the net result was a loss of -11,673 characters. I am not familiar with Pillowfort, but the edit comment doesn't seem to reflect all of the changes. It looks like the section "Fan's Ability to Curate and Erase" was deleted--was that moved to another page?--aethel (talk) 04:00, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
- I added "Fan's Ability to Curate and Erase" back to the page. Removing it was unexplained and unacceptable. --MPH (talk) 13:36, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
- I understand wanting the page to reflect the site as it is currently, but rather than delete all of this historical stuff, perhaps condense it and moving it to some sort of "As of 2018" or "History" section would be better? https://fanlore.org/w/index.php?title=Pillowfort&type=revision&diff=1520816&oldid=1520780. --MPH (talk) 13:40, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
