Dear Queenzone.com (Richard?),
Love the site. I visit and participate whenever I can. But it has become painfully obvious that the "levels" here on Queenzone are no longer serving the participants. "...Newbie, Rocker, Champion, Bohemian, Royalty, Deity", they were once useful, but you see, there are bigger, FAR more important problems at hand. At least according to some of the participants.
You see, the (near-)Royalty and Deity participants have become increasingly convinced of the names of their statuses, and coincidentally grown more and more "unamused" with those in the "lower" levels. And while it would be ideal to offer a solution in the interests of ALL levels of participants, I cannot. I'll now attempt to offer the RIGHT solution.
One solution might be to rename the levels, perhaps, starting with "Royalty", which really should be "Desperate to Belong, Condescending, and Quite Bitter", and "Deities" which really ought be named "Hunt Me Down and Put Bullets in My Skull, 'cuz I Hate Life". But I can't condone violence, so that's clearly not a viable solution.
Therefore, I recall the purpose of the site: presentation and discussion of Queen-related news, articles, opinions, images, and performances and select other activities including the interpersonal interaction between fans.
Newbies, Rockers, Champions, Bohemians, they all seem to start and participate in threads that follow the purpose of this Queen-related site, however "tired" the topic. But they're quite despised for it.
By contrast, (near-)Royalty and Deities rejoice in the petty belittling of the other levels and do not regularly contribute positive content in the spirit of the site.
Obviously, "Royalty" and "Deities" are FAR more important, so, how can we put these veteran posters at ease? Quite simple, really. Off with their heads!
My proposal: Let Queenzone be the first site to "expire" participants as soon as they reach 1,000 posts.
It's fairly obvious to me that any board called "Queenzone" ought to serve the participants who value the Queen-related content most. Putting the frustrated armchair critics out to pasture by 1,000 posts might actually INCENT them to THINK about what they type (as they progress toward 1,000 posts) so as to not clutter the site with endless posts that only server to vent petty gripes.
At very least, a "review" of each member's merit after 1,000 posts could help determine their worthiness for continuance. I don't think it would be difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff. But the chaff has been begging, of late, to be shown its worth. Let's do!
