    Thank you for your suggestion.

      We live in world of "specialists". Personally, I like the way it is now.

        ^I agree, but none of that necessarily has to change with the plans Matt is proposing. Nonetheless, thank you to Matt for listening.

          I doubt a separate forum for "Information Only" threads, that doesn't allow comments from people who disagree with the information, would work. If MiceChat were to try that on the reports and features that are on its front page, it wouldn't take long before the site was a ghost town.

          Instead, how about a special thread title tag for threads that are offering or seeking information?

          And for trip reports, which now are protected by the forum's rules from posters who opportunistically join the threads to criticize Disney, how about if the moderators police the threads for posters who praise the trip report OP and then opportunistically sneak in snarky comments that mock Disney's critics?

          And if we really want to avoid people thinking that the forum is "toxic," how about if the admins don't misuse their authority to post things like violate their own rules, like this?

            This is not how I envision a change.

            It's a fact that people are afraid to post trip reports or even comment on a topic because they are afraid of what people will say. There needs to be a place where people can post trip reports without fear of comments that are negative or that derail the thread. This site would be in addition to the forums. It would have a separate URL.

              How do we fix this?

                I'm not sure there is a way to fix it: As has been demonstrated in the forums and the Features comments, some Disney employees are extremely intolerant of criticism of their employer.

                Fortunately, there are other CMs who don't buy the Company's spin, and who post the truth of what is happening inside the DLR.

                So in the end, the good news is that it all balances out.
