PLEASE NOTE: Information and Guidelines concerning posting Jokes
« on: December 03, 2007, 18:16:15 PM »
Please note the following...

  • Posting jokes DOES NOT increase your POST COUNT
  • Posting jokes DOES NOT earn you any SHOP CREDITS
  • Offensive jokes WILL BE REMOVED and you may potentially be BANNED

The above measures are to prevent 'stat padding', i.e. copy/pasting jokes merely to boost your Shop Points or Post Count.

Thanks,

Cheers, Ash

If in this day and age meaning 2008 you can't take a joke as a joke then whats going on, I have made joke's about Irish people as have others which are still in place and there are others that could be mentioned, souch as the Scottish, yet these three jokes posted tonight seem to have struck a cord, why are you being serious if that is the case then ban me, they were not to boost my posts but for light hart ed fun but if someone has taken them offensively then ban every joke against any minority weather meant in jest or not and feel free to ban me from your site with immediate effect but ask yourself who in this case is the racist me or your fear of a joke?

It depends on the context of the jokes really.  I think the Englishman, Irishman and Scotishman ones are a little bit more lighthearted than some of the ones that get posted on here,

If there is a big problem with jokes, I would just make it easy and close that section of the forum.

This is a Calibra forum, not a jokers forum - however... lol

Just a reminder guys, post jokes that are VERY VERY FUNNY, don't simply post every joke that you come across else it defeats the object of this section.

A reminder please guys (RAIN hint hint), this forum isn't to be abused, post into it perhaps once a week, but PLEASE stop cluttering it with sh*t that really isn't that funny. Its for the FUNNIEST jokes/virals ONLY.

we dont all share the same humour do we ? Rain must have found it funny to post it surely ? unfortunately in this age of political correctness and the over use of the race card, you have to be so careful what you say in public nowadays. i think again this is a little over sensitive but i know Ash has to consider all the members on CC where as the member posting the joke doesn't really get any comeback. its a shame it has to come to this but i take on board whats been said :)

Thanks for your post Raptor, but in addition to what you've mentioned its also the use of the forum that we must protect, I want the community here to be here primarily for the Calibra, not simply to post jokes and virals - this community should be the ultimate Calibra resource, but over the past year its become an attraction to spammers keen to blabber more about jokes than the Cally itself!

Well for me it is more of a community of people who have calibras but calibrath is not the only thing they live for.
We do chat about some totally random stuff over the forums while keeping huge infobase about calibras itself.
At the moment i dont have a cali but does that mean that i have to go away and comeback only when i get one?
Plus I dont think that 1-2 jokes or links that i DID find funny posted on the board that is supposed to be used for that would overload your mSQL database. (well unless it is already overloaded).

Plus those who dont share my sense of humour dont have to watch/read that stuff i post here.

this is good and all but a joke is a joke and has to offend someone otherwise it wouldn't be funny and wouldn't be a JOKE, i mean come on who finds knock knock jokes funny?

You argued with an idiot, I brought you down to my level and I beat you with experience.

I must agree that some jokes are offensive even if no harm is intentional.
I know quite a few people that make gay jokes, once or twice it's a laugh, but sometimes people just go to far!
I've seen some okay jokes on here, and I feel that there was no intent to offend.
And good idea about post counts!

Maybe I'm black at heart.
