We don't do that here because we have boundaries and respect for Zac,although having the Zanessa thread was kind of going along that road. But anyway it seems that now people have more interest in who Zac's dating,who he hangs out with and how he spends his time when he is not working. And I think that is why we don't have the membership or the interest as we are not giving them anything they want to see,as they don't care about his movies or projects.

I think it's a case of trying to work out a balance of giving fans what they want but also being loyal to Zac.

You have a good point. Sadly that's just how some people want to be and I have to admit it is exciting when we're into someone's "personal" stuff. That's why we have so many freaking reality shows haha.

The people who go on @ehs_wildcats livejournal care more about Zac's career and put that first. They rarely discuss Zac's private life. Even the Zac fans on tumblr I know care about him and his movies, nothing else. I just don't think it's fair to lump all Zac fans in the group of 'they only care about his personal life'. That's all I'm saying.

The last part I agree with completely.

Please play nice :]

I did that. My girl Bri joined again but she was so bored after a few days because she didn't feel like it was the same so she just left. I've tried to make quite a few girls come back but they see what's happened in the past and they leave. Tell me all they seen was a bunch of girls and guys fighting over "Zanessa" and everyone else was MIA completely.

That's what is so hard for me. A lot of my best friends came from here. Bri is coming to my wedding once I actually get engaged lol. It's nice and I wish everyone had friends like that.

Would it helped if we welcomed people better when they got here?

Eh not really. Bri isn't the type that needed a ton of attention on the forum but I think it was the fact that all of her friends were gone and she left when the forum was still with those people. She left a young 15-16 yr old and is now a mature 18 yr old and realized that this forum just wasn't her thing but she was glad she came and checked it out.

Also, I just wanna point something out, and forgive me if I've upset anyone but I just realized that the Zanessa thread seemed kinda cliquish. I mean they inadvertently started something they lost control over and we all got into it. I don't mean to rehash stuff. I'm just saying here: we need to be careful of what we post on here. I mean, one little thing could very well start something and it could blow up in our faces again. Maybe having a moderator look over each thread and delete posts that could be offensive to others could be a good idea.

Oh god Hun if Bee and I did that people would be GONE because they'd assume we were picking on them. I was thinking the same thing secretly shhhh Tongue I want to delete half of the "offensive" comments but they tend to come from only certain members and then it would look like they were being picked on. I've reminded those people nicely and it doesn't get through their head that their behavior can be taken the wrong way even if they don't feel they are being offensive.
