Sex board

I can't find the original thread talking about whether or not a sex board would be a good idea.

But I remember that a lot of us talked about the likelihood a lot of threads being posted in Chat (or elsewhere) instead of in the Sex thread.

And this is exactly what has happened.

One posted today in Chat because 'too much identifying information' and therefore the OP wanted it in Chat because it would be deleted after a certain period of time.

Given that a lot of us didn't want the sex threads so actively visible, and therefore you created a Sex board, how about making the threads in that board deletable after a certain amount of time? In which case, you could then move them from Chat to the 'right' place.

Makes sense to me.

Has anybody noticed that on the Sex board the threads with the newest replies don't go to the top?

Yes - there's some sort of dating problem there but it's not quite consistent.

Personally I feel that the point of chat, originally, was for all the posts on random subjects that people wanted to go away. The point was it was a catch all for threads you didn't want ending up in the books or jumped on by journos. Therefore it was supposed to be topic free. This is why I posted the thread biwi is talking about there.

However, I'd definitely have put it in the sex topic if it was time limited there or there was an option to limit when I posted. I don't agree that sex should be barred from chat or aibu because they are general sections for general use but I definitely agree that the sex topic, more than any other, should have the option to limit.

Thanks all.

We'll have a chat at MNHQ about the points raised here.

I think it's a good idea. It'd be even better IMO if a poster had to have posted x amount before posting there. To avoid the trolls and people wanting fodder for their erm.. playtime

I think that is the case though, Grays - I think they have to have been a member here for a while before they can access the board.

You can start chatting from the minute you sign up can't you?

Yes please to a sex board which disappears. I don't really feel like responding to posts there when my comments are going to hang around forever.

BertieBotts Sat 25-Jul-15 14:44:08

Not on the sex topic, Greys.

From the top of the Sex board:

Only those who have been a registered user of Mumsnet for at least 90 days can post in this topic

Ah right thank you!

So if the Sex Topic appeared at the beginning of June, September should be v interesting in that topic.

I wonder if it might be beneficial to have a tick box on all created threads for if you want it to disappear after 90 days. I'm thnking it might be beneficial for health, money matters, legal as well as sex?
