A loveboat is a thread about you and where people compliment you (I think)

 

and 'keeper of' is in your signiture, you can 'keep' things of Muse, like Matt's blue hair in Bizarre of his weird long fingers....

Apparently the Love Boat was originally designed to show love to the members of Muse or something...that's what I heard anyway. It evolved into a way of showing love to fellow members by giving them their own thread, where people can talk to them and show love to them.

 

You can essentially be a 'Keeper of' anything you want. It's intended as a funny false claim. I think the muse board is secretly trying to capture Muse, and they're putting this stuff in their signatures to try and claim certain parts of their bodies so they can have their merry way with them.

Basically the loveboats are used by a large section of the board who find the elitism and politics in Banter unbearably boring.

- love boat is a place for self whoring

- keeper thing is just something to keep you amused - you find a random item to do with muse and own it

a loveboat is a pointless area of the forum that with any luck will soon be torpedoed off the board. kersplash!

See, I thought it was used by the same 12 or so people that continually bum each other, sometimes spilling out into pornogenic musers.

Well you only need to look at the post counts over the thread to realise that's rubbish. It's the second most used area on this entire board after Banter. 400,000 posts higher than any of the the Muse areas, The Gallery, or Kit & Tab. :p

 

Come on, when the Non Stop Muser Party/Orgy threads got banned the Banter thread couldn't cope with the extra influx of 15 people (and I think only about 5 or 6 were even online at the time). It was chaos, entire pages being filled every time you pressed refresh. Putting the whole of the Loveboat area in there would result in it either becoming unusable or losing a giant portion of this boards community. It would be just so unnecessarily pointless! :LOL:

Indeed there is a lot of bumming wot goes on in there! The loveboat should be redundant now because you all have profile messaging so it's just unneeded server load and server load makes Bertha cry.

 

I don't quite remember the events with the thread locking the way you do, I just remember people whinging that they couldn't talk to their six other friends in the threads and saying they couldn't possibly participate in the banter thread.

 

I agree with your point that the loveboat is unnecessarily pointless.

As the Loveboat acts as a chat thread between multiple people the profile messaging could not replace it. It would be as logical as moving the Banter area soley into those pointless new 'user created social group' things and even less workable. And it is a chat thread, not a mass "bumming thread", unless you class actually being friendly to people "bumming"? :wtf: Also if you look at the top posters in the Pornogenic thread you will also find that the majority are people who mainly post in Banter, so i've no idea what you are talking about there either.

 

The loveboats are essentially the Banter Thread split up into many managable threads and used by more people. I've used it for a year and still don't even recognise half the names in there. It is huge. By this fact, and following your logic, it should be the Banter thread which is deleted for being unnecessary.

I can see that it's totally srs bsns for you so I will be quiet but it started off as a joke area of the board and it's not really sustainable now. The profile messages are just as workable as the loveboat.

Indeed. Originally the love boat (in 2001) was for love of ANYTHING. Not an area to bum individual users, I don't get why it suddenly went in that direction.

As you want to ban it for no logical reason (or certainly none you've yet to put forward), I think it's you who is taking this board far too seriously! :LOL:

 

And as i've already said, the profile messages cannot work in the same way. To claim it would is like saying the Banter thread should be banned and substituted with members only talking via profile messaging. Neither is workable and it is an apt comparison as both areas perform the function of chat threads. It is not feasible to put all of those chat areas in one thread (as a single thread could not sustain it), and the loveboats act in a different way - one more based on friendship and social support - which could not be sustained or replaced with a merger.

Indeed. Originally the love boat (in 2001) was for love of ANYTHING. Not an area to bum individual users, I don't get why it suddenly went in that direction.

It hasn't. :confused: It's an area where multiple people talk together. Like the Banter thread but even larger, far more friendly (without the politics or elitism) and far more diverse. It also acts as an important social help area, enabling people to communicate with friends they have made on here without being ignored or ridiculed and enabling them to work through problems - as well of course the more usual function of just communicating with people on here with more ease and personalisation than can be found in a thread like banter.

 

Just because the mods use Banter instead doesn't mean a whole portion of the board community ceases to exist. It is the second largest active community on the board after the Banter area (see post counts), and considering the banter thread is only one part of the Banter area it would be ridiculous to assume that the entire substantial loveboat community could be merged workably within that thread. It's just unmanageable. Read my arguments on this page. I'm using logic and reason and it's being countered with misinformed unintelligible nonsense. Please help. :(
