@Object
you are on one of them wink5

@Loaf
I think we have "be nice" policy here. I don't say to you that you cannot state your opinion, far from that.I, personally, am just asking you to choose your words when doing so, nobody likes aggression or similar things, and I think that you can, instead of feeling bad about DV, use the time here for your goals and not waste it on talking against something. It's not doing any good to you, Use that energy for other purposes.

I don't personally have experience with DV and cannot judge the mods there. All said is only my opinion and don't feel like you've done somethin bad wink5 I just think you'r not doing any good to yourself with that approach.

Welcome to LD4all Loaf, Object, and all other DV-ers that unintentionally missed.

MortalMist has a rich community with user focus. I believe LD4All is older than DV is by a few years. A simple Google also reveals many hidden places with casual atmospheres like Lucidity Lounge, World of Lucid Dreaming, iAmLucidDreaming forums.

I even started my own website based on my own ideals of what a lucid community should be like a couple months back called DreamerBase.

Either way I feel that Dreamviews has pretty hollow up front content, and is just lucky it had SEO smart owners and got in early (I believe it was owned by a web company at one stage?). Is it the best lucid community out there? No, its just big.

@Spider: I didn't intend hostility, I'm sorry if it seemed aggressive. neutral I'll try to make sure what I write is a little more mellow in the future.

By the way, since DV is on sale, why don't you buy it and reshape it into your ideal?
By doing so you will also effectively piss off Alex (the CEO).

Also, I heard about you in the Meta Forum.
It is quite true that you said your images are ruined.

Its for sale? overspannen

Well the GoDaddy domain is a fake (it redirects to dream-views, not the valuable domain dreamviews).

Way out of my price range. Alex snapped it up for under $20000 in an auction I believe. Its worth twice that now (or was).

EDIT: Yep, he got it for $17,000.

Do you allow horny men to post tactful and humorous hookup threads at your forum, in case I am thinking of signing up?

just a note to dreambliss.

it is certainly not allowed on ld4all. our members span a wide range of ages, and many are underage. a pickup topic, especially in the way you hint to in the last post, would also be deleted here.

sorry for the lack of proper formatting in this post, it is posted from a not very cooperative phone.

there is a big my website topic in the gathering. i don't have the url in my head, but a search will find it quickly. the gathering section is members only, so posting links in there instead means among other things a lesser chance of spambots finding your site.

I got an email saying something about DV being hacked. I haven't been on it in ages anyway. In my opinion, nothing beats LD4all!

I wasn't going to post it since it seems a little disrespectful to do so in a community I'm a lurker in. But its well cached by Google so, you can find it yourself easily if you wanted to.

Might have a look there then if there is an official place for it.

Hey Loaf you didn't answer my question (I was being serious.)

Siiw

I'm a little confused here... When talking about dreams and astral projection sex naturally comes into the subject. Do you sensor all of that to protect your younger members? Also why don't you have an age restriction or a disclaimer or something? Finally you do realize that by censoring any adult content, you are only going to make younger forum members more interested in it?

Anyone here remember the whole "nude Laura Croft (Tomb Raider) phase? Or how about the "Hot Coffee" mod in Grand theft auto. Both classic examples of what happens when you censor certain subjects.

Now I'm not arguing here because I can't post a hookup thread. In fact I am glad you informed me of this site's rules regarding this. But I do want to understand why this site has taken that stance, because it excludes so much for so little.

Somewhere out there is a dream/astral projection/spiritual matter forums that doesn't exclude the base physical... If anyone has a link please post it here or PM it to me!

@Dreambliss the rules are quite clear on what we allow and what we don't allow. Discussion about those rules is not necessary in any topic and will therefore be removed.
If you don't agree with the rules here feel free to go elsewhere.

@everyone: please try to keep this one on topic as it seems this discussion is about 3 different subjects now. Expect this thread to be merged or split into separate discussions.

It's an old topic from two years ago, Loaf has been directed to the big website topic. So I'll lock, but if anyone wants to create a 'missing DV topic' or 'What you love or hate about DV' topic just go ahead and do it wink5
