    Hello, my name is Aoki and i made the bashing thread some years ago as a way for members to be able to express how they feel, because back in those days on AKP saying anything could get you banned. There was no freedom of speech period.

    Eventually the mods took over my thread and added rules.

    It was never a thread that was supposed to hurt feelings, if u go all the way to the first page u can see it in my post. It was supposed to be lighhearted and in a ''funny diss'' type of way.

    Things have obviously turned very toxic, hateful and ignorant. I do feel that as long as mods dont try to censor users too much on the forum, while keeping in mind that users keep their honest opinions respectful we could def get rid of the thread.

    Just the input from a old AKP-user who started that thread.

    I was in it only for the first 200 pages, I only used it to diss sth my friend liked to piss her off
    I am surprised it turned into what it is today too

    At the end of the day, rather than the thread, its the users that have changed

    just rename it to "like farm" and then people will figure out that it aint something to be taken seriously after all unless you're just trying to bump up your numbers

    And for this reason, the no quoting/no replying rule came to life.

    As a frequent user I vote to keep it, it's the only way where everything is not riding high on your faves numbers and where you can just get things that bother you out of the way.

    As you said, doing it everywhere else would get you banned.

    We honestly need some inbetween. Not something where your censored to your tits but also not somewhere where people abuse that freedom.

    The thread about what to do about BT is coming up soon anyways. So I hope we can have a meaningful discussion.

    The first 100-200 pages was the most fun, then it went left real quick.

    It may be the users who have changed, but recently AKP have been encouraging the hate with the multiple rules changes.

    No more lighthearted bash at my friend for xyz, it has to be about the entertainment industry and it has to be considered a bash. So basically users are and have been encouraged to go all out nowadays.

    It might have been lighthearted but now it's a place where female idols get called sluts, people trashing idols for their looks and so on.

    They have done that multiple times in the regular forum too
    They just do it in a way that they dont get banned but its as bad
    they say sth like so and so got the opportunity to do sth bc they slept with higher ups

    That's probably as toxic as you can get to be honest. I'm pretty neutral about the BT, and I've used it before, so I don't judge if users want to use it.

    But, calling someone a slut, that's a bit much. That's hateful. That's not even letting off steam anymore. It's beyond that.

    I still disagree.
    Just punish people who spread lies, slut-shame people etc. but don't delete the whole thread.

    And get rid of the Like-System.
    That would be much more helpful in the long run.

    To me slut is just word of insult, its said and done
    people literally writing an essay that an idol success is bc they slept their way up is much more damaging and toxic. They spend time and effort to fabricate evidence of how that is true and actually convince anothe rfew idiots along the way too.

    There's 20 posts a page and at most 3-4 make you say "whoa, that's a bit excessive".. the rest are tame tbh.. and by tame I mean not bashing an idols appearace, personality, life and relationships.

    I think that the bashing thread is a good idea.

    I use it myself somentimes, when I am particoulary irritated and I want to write about somenthing I don't like.
    I think it could be better... Because people there go way to far with the insults tho.


    But If you don't want to read toxicity don't go there. Yes, is that simple.

    As a former mod (I was a mod with nicklaus when we decided to revamp the whole bashing in the forum), I'll give my input.
    Usually users get triggered easily here, especially when someone bashes their group, and it turns into a huge fight in a thread that wasnt meant for it (and then mods are forced to give wp since the fight gets too personal..)
    and tbh i saw so many users use the whole "freedom of speech" reason and just write some really trashy words about an artist and then complain we are dismissing their opinion.
    Containing the bashing in the BT thread is probably the best solution, at least in my opinion .
