Exclamation PLEASE VOTE: The Crap Shack

A major feature of this website once was a forum named the "Crap Shack". Its purpose was to allow members to have an open discussion in a similar form to a chat room with few rules. Some time ago a decision was taken by staff members to remove this feature of the site but with our recent expansion both in membership and in staff we've been discussing the possibility of opening the Crap Shack again.

There would be some differences this time. Previously, the Crap Shack created overlap between Off Topic and Unrelated and itself but with this new iteration we'd be introducing a rule where a topic which is serious or which would fit in another forum must be placed there rather than in the Crap Shack. This will put an end to topics in the Crap Shack with *nospam* in their titles and will also help to encourage discussion across the range of forums we offer.

A concern which arose during discussion about this was the possibility of new members being unfairly treated or otherwise excluded by more experienced members. We'd be monitoring this situation carefully if The Crap Shack did reopen and those who weren't playing by the rules would receive the normal warnings and suchlike.

Some staff members also felt that the forum created a juvenile atmosphere on the forums, while others felt that the "fun and entertainment" which the Crap Shack used to provide were in keeping with the "fun and entertainment" of the GTA series.

If you're still unsure about what the Crap Shack is like you can view three samples of its content by clicking the links below. These three threads were all originally made in the Crap Shack while it was open:
Sample: Pie vs. Caek
Sample: Cat!

Staff opinion on the revival of the Crap Shack is divided, so we're opening up voting to every GTAGaming member for a period of three days.

All that's left for you to do now is cast your vote in this GTAGaming referendum.

PS: If you've got any thoughts on the issue, please reply to this thread after casting your vote.
