    Petition to Remove the No Outside Links Rule

    No Outside Links User Poll

    First off plz don't ban me.... I know I'm gonna get flamed for this, but Im just stating my opinion so before you reply to this post plz do not flame, tell me my opinion doesn't matter or that this isn't a democracy, all these things are obvious (lol). Please contribute to this thread either by stating your argument as to why the rule should be lifted or as to why the rule should stay in place. What Dave does is not our concern its simply our duty to voice our opinions and let what happens happen.


    My Reasons to the Remove the rule:

    1. Advertising is not the same thing as posting a link.
    2. A forum is a social networking site that gathers input from many other site. People may need to post links to other sites to share information or to access data.
    3. Linking to other sites does not detract from MPGH. In Many cases it provides a better experience. Take linking to youtube, or blogs, etc. MPGH is a good site, but is not the whole internet, by allowing linking to other sites you bring content that was not available on MPGH to MPGH so that people will not have to go away from the site to find that content.
    4. It pleases users (at least it would plz me. I can not speak on behalf of others, but their votes will determine that) and happy users advertise MPGH. (aka. "word of mouth")
    __________________________________________________ _________________________________________


    Please voice your opinion as to wether you agree or disagree with my reasons or have your own reasons. I will update this post with user feedback as the thread grows so that major points will be listed in one spot.

    Thankyou.



    User Feedback:

    -Pro-
    1. All links don't have to be blocked only advertisement or filesharing, Tutorials and personal sites should be allowed. (Deebow & Woop)

    2. People can fake links for virus scans (Beteasta3)

    -Con-
    1. People post links to file sharing sites that contain viruses. Unsuspecting users may get viruses. (n1kko)

    2. Easier to uplaod files through site. (Liz)


    Like I said I will keep updating this accordingly. Send me a PM if I missed something. Thanks for the feedback!

    "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some fifty miles of concrete pavement. We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people. This is, I repeat, the best way of life to be found on the road the world has been taking. This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron."

    Sorry, but no, Rule is good, prevents virus posting, advertisements etc. takes the same amount of time to upload through site than it does on any other upload site. so there is no advantage only harm.

    I say we need to change the rule to no outside links for downloads
    All downloads must be uploaded on MPGH but we can still link to personal websites (as long as we also post the information here as well), youtube, and other things.

    Yes there can be adaptations of the rule. It doesn't have to be a full out prohibition of links. Denying links to download sites seems sufficient.

    PS: Updated Frontpage.
