    Default Season Five : Compliments and Praise Thread

    Welcome to the 'Season Five: Compliments and Praise 'thread.

    To lay out a few ground rules:

    This thread, and its mate, 'Season Five 'Complaints and Misgivings'' thread are to be the ONLY season specific limited focus threads. Any other, what we would have termed as general 'pro' or 'anti' threads will not be allowed and will be closed down.

    The rules of this thread are simple. This is a 'safety zone' for people to express the stuff they like about season five without feeling like they are being forced to defend those opinions. As such, if you disagree with a post, comments such as 'you stupid idiot, how can you not like this' or 'oh look, more mindless fans' will NOT be tolerated.

    ANY AND ALL COMPLIMENTS ABOUT SEASON FIVE ARE ON TOPIC HERE.

    Bear in mind, you may be lpraising that Sam is gone, but someone else's praise may be that she's back for a couple of episodes. Both comments are on topic. And both comments MUST be respected and tolerated. We do not want to see things like 'This is only for praise about (one certain aspect/character) go away.' People do not have to justify their praise.

    While you are free to talk about any aspect of the SHOW that you like, you are NOT allowed to complain about other fans, other forums or members of the cast and crew.

    For example:

    'Joe Mallozzi is a twit' is inappropriate.
    'I don't like Joe's writing' is okay.

    'I'm glad that Amanda has been gotten rid of' is inappropriate.
    'Thank goodness Sam has been written off the show' is okay.

    Characters are not real people, they are fictional representations, therefore are not availed the same protection as real people. I know that, as a fan of a particular character or actor, it can be difficult to see people making unkind remarks about the character; however it is not against the rules, so you must accept it.

    Terms like 'TIIC' (the idiots in charge) are not permissible. Anyone making remarks with terms such as this, even hiding it under spoiler tags, will be a candidate for moderation.

    If you see a post that is inappropriate, your job, as it is, is to REPORT THE POST or ignore it and move on. It is not your job to police others and there is nothing wrong with using the report post feature.

    We will also not tolerate things such as fans spying on fans. Can we stop you from spying? No. But we can stop you from talking about it. Comments like 'that serves those stupid chuck fans' are inappropriate. It falls under talking about other fans and is not allowed.

    To put the rules in a nutshell….express your likes about the show to your hearts' content. But do it while respecting others.

    Do not disparage another's opinion.
    Do not mock or belittle others.
    Do not call others names.


    That stuff is off topic. The topic is 'I like how the show is going', and it will be enforced.

    How will we enforce it?

    Glad you asked.

    We will be using the infraction system. For those of you that have received infractions, until this point in time, we simply used them to communicate issues with posters in a way that allowed us to document the original post, as well as what we say to you in our PM's. The infraction system has a point system linked to it, that, until this point, we've ignored.

    But we will be using it now.

    Anyone breaking the on topic rules in the Complaints or Compliments thread will be given an infraction. You all know the rules, thus there will not be warnings issued. This post is your warning.

    On the rare occasions that we see brand new posters misstepping in the limited focus treads, they will receive ONE warning. This warning does not apply to our current and active members. You folks that have been here for months and years and have hundreds of posts, you know better.

    Infraction One: You are 'gagged' for three days. Which means that you will be placed on read only status. You may make posts, but those posts will be held in the mod queue until your three days are over.

    Infraction Two: You are gagged for six days and any posts you make while you are gagged will be deleted.

    Infraction Three: You are gagged for two weeks and you will be counseled by a member of the mod team. You will discuss with them what the issues are and see what the problem is. This is also the point where the other mods will get involved. We'll discuss this particular poster's issues amongst ourselves and see what we can do to help.

    Infraction Four: You are gagged for a month.

    Infraction Five:
    You are permantly gagged. If you are found to be creating a sock puppet to circumvent the gagging, it will be banned.

    While infractions – to this point – have not been cumulative, in the Complaints or Compliments threads, they WILL be cumulative. Any behavior infractions earned in these threads will never expire.

    It does sound harsh, however those of you that have never had a post snipped or deleted, you likely won't notice anything different. Those of you that have gotten to know the mods well, you will need to be making adjustments to your behavior.

    These infractions will apply ONLY to the limited focus threads. Thus, if you get gagged for 3 days in a limited focus thread and then get a sig rule violation in another thread, it won't add up to six days of gagging.

    However, if we do see people taking their bicker matches out of the limited focus threads and into others, we will react. Talking about other fans behind their backs, calling them names and the like is against the rules of this forum and will be dealt with.

    We don't want to lose people. However, over the past several months, the nastiness has gotten so horrible and so pervasive, that we really have no other choice. Posters are welcome as long as they follow the rules, however, out of fairness to the majority of our posters, if posters will not behave and respect others, they will need to find somewhere else to play.

    i am crossing my figures that we will get some great stories this season Joe and Paul really raised the bar last season with deeper story telling and character development.
    Very well put. I feel the same way.

    Let's keep this thread alive!

    Today's discussion:

    Compliments and Praise on Woolsey!

    I think Woolsey is going to make the show interesting. We are going to get those character conflincts with authority like we did in the early seasons of SGA. I think his character is going to grow on a lot of fans, and the interaction will be very interesting.

    I can see the fear of bringing Woosley over but I also can see the benefits. TPTB are walking a fine line. He is a character that can clash with the Atlantis team, but he also can be annoying if used wrong. I have faith that Woosley will be used properly.
    Woosley: Sheppard, you are ruining low on your monthly allowment of bullents. Can you use a few less bullets killing Wraith?

    I don't think he will be overkill either. It has been made known that the leader of Atlantis will be a supportive postition like a Hammond or Landry. So he will likely not be in every episode, and will get a few episodes to give him a little background and whatnot. There is a lot of potential, but it could also backfire.

    The possibility of a S6 will depend on S4 and first few episodes of S5.

    Woolsey wouldn't have been my first choice but I can see alot of potential in him and I think he could easily surpise us all with how he handles the role of leader

    I think given some time in the job Woolsey will loosen up a bit, like Caldwell I think all he needs is to get to know how well the team operate...

    Yup, I have faith though that TPTB will do well with Woolsey and keep his character in a supportive position and not over use him on screen... They did well with sam in S4 so far, so we know it can be done

    The last 4 episodes should get good ratings, a Teal'c ep, two Carson eps and a finale. I think it's looking good on the season 6 front, but then again I said that about season 11 of SG-1

    There are lots of things I am looking forward to, more Carson, how they will introduce Woolsey, new races, and of course the second SGA team with Captain Vega. i hope they have an ep focussed on them

    Oh, and all of the episode titles have peaked my interest already

    Yup, that is very likely since it's the end of the season and very little network competition. I am a little concerned about Midway, since the "Psych" finale is tommorrow.

    Yeah Carson returning is making me forget about Weir. I do wish he was in more eps but it is not written in stone the 5 eps, and we could see more hopefully.
