This topic needs to be closed. There's members of staff, nevermind the members who have been told not to report anything, who find this topic to not be a very positive contribution to the site.
Absolute agree with you. So don't worry about your status updates. If they give you problems about it let me know.
From the beginning I thought your status updates were totally acceptable. You promoted chat and I loved it. But it only became ok when a staff member does it. That is ridiculous. Please go ahead man! Major plus rep to you for always being different and promoting a chatty codex!
Just attach a disclaimer in one comment saying "I don't want to hear staff getting any complaints about this, if you can't take this then don't read it or comment". Something like that. lol
That doesn't work because people have to read it. They have no say in the matter. I do not want his status updates to be made on the front page though. If I want to show someone the site and the work that I do here, I don't want them to see a dead grandmother joke on the front page. Just as you partly own the site and have a say in how it is meant to be presented to the public, so do I. He can "promote chattiness" elsewhere, can't he?
We need to talk about this some more, apparently. Not here though.
