Default H3F Exclusives

The Exclusives section has officially been reopened. This thread is to explain and clear up any misconceptions about the section.

Will there be colors like before?

NO.

It's been decided by the mods and I that making members in the Exclusives a different color is not in our (the mods and community's) best interest. We feel that by color coding members we create a clear status segregation, where there is high chance of people forgetting that they are members first and equal as such. We don't want "people of color" (lol) feeling empowered or better than any other member and expressing such an attitude can be grounds for removal.

How can I become an Exclusive?

Contrary to popular belief, admission into Exclusives is NOT based on popularity. Access to the Exclusives is based on merit; this is not to say that someone who contributes materially to the forum, such as making a bunch of sigs or whatever for people, is the kind of contribution deem necessary for qualification. A member of the Exclusives is, generally, someone who has invested their time into the forum and "to members who both encourage good discussion (i.e. has kept things around here "fun" and "interesting" without crossing the line frequently), and also who would actually take ADVANTAGE of having a private section and using it properly - i.e. not as a Livejournal to gossip like old women about other members" as a certain moderator so elegantly put it. In other words, an Exclusive member ought to be one of social significance, while maintaining respectable conduct.

I used to be an Exclusive, why aren't I now?

The majority of members who were in Exclusives are not any longer based on one or more of the following reasons:
  • Poor/awful conduct - people who, once the section was removed, began acting up and receiving frequent bans. If this was done in retaliation to the removal of the Ex. section, then that's all the more reason not to have you re-admitted if it means you were good for the sake of maintaining status, rather than good for the sake of being good.
  • Inactivity after, during, or prior to the removal of the Exclusives section
  • Being unengaged or otherwise uninvolved in the forum community
  • etc, etc

The members who were added back as of now are the candidates that received the majority of votes from the moderators and I as members who we have no reserves about readmitting. This is not a complete list of members who will be admitted into the Exclusives, but a list of those who we think is a good start - from here more nominations and voting can begin as necessary. So if you didn't get back in, or weren't in to begin with, don't throw a pissy fit.

The remainder of this thread will be for comments and questions but is subject to closure if it gets out of hand.

edit: For the record, just so everyone can complain about it, here's a list of the people who are back as of now.

Interesting that I've already deleted the first two non-mod posts. -_-

There seems to be a typo in your first post, I don't see my name.

Edit: I don't know if this will sway your decision, but I heard you have a giant penis.

Even though you're probably being sarcastic, only former Exclusive members were added back; new admissions will begin probably immediately.
