Just reminding everyone that this forum is for results only. Well wishes do not belong here! Asking who won a specific category or asking for line up pictures is not allowed here either. Those questions could be asked in the competition forum though.

As always, if you see anything here that should not be, please press the "mod" button and let us know so it can be removed. :)

Thankyou, it is so annoying having to scroll through 2 or 3 pages of good luck messages before we even get to any results. I've just seen the Brean post, wow! :O

Congratulate them elsewhere...through a PM or in a post on the disco board, but this forum is for RESULTS. Everything else will be removed.
Results only

Hiya,

I dont really agree with this... its not often you find 3 pages of goodluck messages for a normal comp, festivals like brean yes but others no... after all we are only being friendly by saying goodluck! :D its a nice thing to do and then it goes and gets removed :( O'well

When you all run your own websites you can make up your own rules that other people will think are stupid.

The disco section has more forums than most other types of dance. In a results forum you'd probably find...results. If you want to congratulate people then do it on the competition forum where you can discuss upcoming competitions or how people did at a competition.

If you want people to comment on a picture with your results...then post it in the pictures section, because their comments will be removed if they don't have results.

I can understand the good luck messages being a waste of space but it is nice to be congratulated!! It's a bit harsh that you can only congratulate someone if you've got a result to post?

Rules are rules tho
Thanks

PM them, or go to the disco competition area to discuss competitions and say your congratulations.

Why do we have a results forum and a competition forum if nobody will use them? Maybe we should just combine them and then the moderators don't have to do so much work.

I think people should be able to say well done to people on the same page as the results, if somebody has done well then you want everyone to see people praising them a pm wouldnt be the same. I also think they should be combined as otherwise people wouldnt know what you are saying well done to somebody for. I cant see the harm really in saying well done to somebody on the same post as results.

Why is a public congratulations so much more special than a private one? Or - why is there a need to compliment and flatter publicly, other than to a) proclaim to the rest of the ddn community that you are being nice, or b) to get your post count up?

In all my years of dance, a "congratulations" has meant "congratulations" regardless of whether it was said in private or public. Furthermore, the ones said in private usually meant more to me, because by bothering to actually come up to me, it shows they felt I really deserved it. Same thing on DDN, really.

Disco dancers already have far greater freedom in regards to what you can post, and the forums you have. I am fully aware that you all know each other very well, but honestly - why is there such a huge issue over the inability to say whatever you like on the internet when you are all able to tell the person what you want to say in person, or by the pm button which DDN has supplied for you?! By the looks of things, DDN may as well be used as a medium for flattery and compliments rather than a global forum in which to discuss dance.

There is no NEED to say everything publicly. Indeed, it is far more economical to keep all this "congrats! You danced great!" to a minimum as it allows actual dance discussion to take the spotlight, not to mention making life a heck of a lot easier for us mods.

I am in full agreement with imadanseur's earlier post. If you do not like our rules, then please, make your own website and create whatever rules suit you. Until then, this is NOT your website, and you may NOT do whatever you please.

I agree with the other mods.

It says results only for a reason....

Its bad when over half the post isn’t results but well done or fabby or whatever... you get where I’m going with this.

Case in point Groovytwins Breane (sp) post. I deleted 3 yes I said 3 pages of good lucks, well done, etc....hardly anyone posted a result. Now than….if I was looking for a result I would be highly upset that I have to weed through a bunch of nonsense posts to find what I was looking for.

That is sad....

Our rules aren't hard to follow guys. You don't have to be Albert Einstein to follow them.

I dont think theres every need to be rude or cheeky about this, dancers are just saying what they think, fair enough you made this site and eveything and it must be hard work but shouldnt you listen to peoples views on how they think will make the site better just my opinion.

Nobody is getting cheeky. Just because we disagree with you doesn't mean we've been rude. We do listen to what people say. The reason we started a disco results forum is because we had people petition us for a RESULTS forum. They wanted a place to go to read JUST results. So, we are trying to do that. Quite unsuccessfully some days. So which discoers do we listen to exactly? Either way we will never please everyone.

I know this is hard to believe, but some people like to star farm. They used to go to EVERY post on all the 10 pages and post well done, fabby results, and post one comment every minute. Is that adding anything to the website? NO...they are just posting as many things as they can.

Come on guys, wouldn't you find it pretty annoying if you clicked on a post looking for results and had to scroll through tons of good luck messages or congratulations? I know I would! It's a bit more difficult with the congratulations because people see a great result on here and want to reply saying well done, but that can easily be done in a PM.
It bugs me too when people put a Results post up for a competition about 2 weeks early :?
Anyway, give the Mods a break, they are just trying to make the site better and as has already been pointed out, there are plenty of forums in the Disco section to write your other posts :)

If you want to post a congradulations post, go to the Competition forum. I promise, this isn't as hard as y'all are making it.

hi,

when i want to congratulate people on their results ( i have done twice to two lovely young girls) i PM them, it doesn't take that much effort and the mod's job would be made a little easier :)
