Dear Queenzoners...

Can I ask, who is it that decides, that makes the final decisions, about which postings (threads?) are in the correct area, and which ones are wrong and therefore have to be moved?

Who is it? What is the criteria? Is there a logic to it or is just hit and miss and all over the place?

Certain things I have posted in the Serious forum, get moved to General, or Personal, while other people post things such as the current THEIR SPEAKING ACCENTS in Serious, when, with respect, it is very clearly a Personal item, not specific to Queen, and yet it is deemed to be correctly placed in SERIOUS?

There are several things now situated in Serious, which are not, and there are things which should surely be in Personal, which are not. And so on.... There is little or no consistency.

So, it is a personal decision each time, or is there actually some common sense logic going on which is invisible to most and decipherable only to those who make the decisions.

The resemblence between Queen and Muse is surely not the most serious issue on QZ. With due respect, like the Speaking Accents thing, these are Personal. My guess is that news of the death of Roy Thomas Baker (God forbid) would be 'moved' from serious to Fan Remixes or some other equally illogical place... depending upon who placed such a thread. It would if I placed it.

This aspect of QZ is entirely unpredictable and inconsistent. But why?

Well, the personal section is about everything apart from Queen.

That would be YourValentine.

No, posts are moved to different forums if they don't meet the proper description of the forum which is listed under the forum name.

Certain things I have posted in the Serious forum, get moved to General, or Personal, while other people post things such as the current THEIR SPEAKING ACCENTS in Serious, when, with respect, it is very clearly a Personal item, not specific to Queen, and yet it is deemed to be correctly placed in SERIOUS?

Well, most of your posts posted in the Serious Queen Related Discussion forum are moved, because they aren't Queen related. Yet, one looking for SERIOUS discussion on the band member's speaking accents, would probably post it in the Serious Queen Related discussion forum. Someone who wants to ask "What's your favorite song?" or something not too serious like that, would post in the General discussion forum. Am I going too fast for you?

There are several things now situated in Serious, which are not, and there are things which should surely be in Personal, which are not. And so on.... There is little or no consistency.
There is a little inconsistency, and yes, if you were to be picky, some may belong in the Personal forum or General forum, but ALL of the posts in this forum are Queen related. As I said before, seldom threads started by you that are posted in the Queen-Serious discussion forum are neither serious nor Queen related.

The resemblence between Queen and Muse is surely not the most serious issue on QZ. With due respect, like the Speaking Accents thing, these are Personal.

Yes, but they are STILL Queen related. People wishing for a SERIOUS discussion about the resemblence between Queen and Muse would post it in the Queen - Serious Discussion forum. The Personal forum is for non-Queen related discussion, so someone wanting to talk about Muse or about speaking accents in general, would post in the Personal forum. This post also belongs in the Personal forum.

This aspect of QZ is entirely unpredictable and inconsistent. But why?

It's all in your head Mr. Brooks. Drink water, go night-night, you will feel better.

By the way, why did you post this in the QUEEN - Serious Discussion forum?

I think that is the intended irony.

Moved to the Personal Forum
It should be in "Queenzone" but Personal is viewed by more users


I do not want any google ads here.

I do.

And it's really just hit or miss.

There's no logic really.

I just like to make people look for their posts.

And often times the threads such as "The resemblence between Queen and Muse" start off in the news section...and I just keep moving it to keep people on their toes.

We're QZ'ers you know...sometimes searching for threads is the only excerisize we get.

and thank you for your support.

Eviltwin.
