Spell's monitored
By:
Post # 1

Hi does any-one feel the spells need to be monitored like we've got spells for turning in a vampire or werewolves were most people should know you can't cast a spell to transform yourself into a vampire or werewolf but some people won't know & it could be misleading?? Anyway does any-one think these should be taken away? Just wanted to see what every-one else thought. Also as there's kid's here who are venerable also think that some spells should age restricted, as noticed a disturbing one today, a spell to kill a person?? Not commenting further but some spells here are quite disturbing and we need to think of the kid's that come on-line.

I agree. But also that would be constricting to some members who make spells. I'd just rather have all the vampire, mermaid, werewolf, etc. Spells removed

Most of us know we can't become blood sucking vampires. Those who don't will figure it out. I believe in freedom of speech, so I'd rather have people posting that stuff than everyone being censored. I understand being frustrated by the fluff, but I've learned to live with it.

I think personally people should be free to post any spells or rituals they want. Some of those spells could be in a astral projection type meaning I doubt it though. The truth is meant for those who seek it,just my opinion

Part of me agrees that they should be removed as it is misleading to those who think they can become a vampire etc, and they can also become annoying for some of us.

However, I think everyone should have the freedom to believe in what they want. There may be some spells I personally believe in but others do not, I wouldn't be happy if it was removed. Perhaps there should be some kind of warning so that people know they wont work or that they are just for role playing or something...

I am unsure about age restrictions, but perhaps certain spells talking about harming or killing another person should be removed. I have not personally seen these though, and I hope no one here on SOM would want to use a spell like this...

anyone that is in a coven and is ranked in the council can add spells, which is why so many join spellcasters due to the fact you're automatically in the council and can add spells. the ability to remove spells is left to only the admin on the site, and as far as i know only rituals can be edited [or your own spells] you can rank down fluffy spells and mark it as spam to inform the admin they should be looked into and taken down, but that takes a while and once it's taken down the link remains [which i find clutters up things a lot and drives me up the wall]

they made the fantasy section in the hopes that, while people can post whatever spell they please, others on the site can see it's 'fantasy' so probably won't work. as someone who studies dragon magick however i find it a little insulting, but not all the spells in the dragon section are credible. same goes for those who study faerie magick, but i guess that's what you'll have to live with.

i do kind of wish more people who prove they know what they're doing could remove spells that clearly won't work [or maybe a warning like 'this was marked spam and is being reviewed' could be at the top] but people might abuse the power [as most people abuse power] so just mark the ones as spam and leave it at that.

Indeed, many forum threads have been opened and brought up the idea of deleting fantasy spells and getting rid of fluffy buisness.

But, currently as I can see the site does not provide members the ability to delete such spells because as Neko said (and very well), not everyone is able to deal with power. If any member would be able to delete spells and take other authoritative actions - the site would looks much worse. People would abue power, delete important things, etc.

Also keep in mind that not all of the members are willing to help the site, some of them are even willing to promote unrelevant and forbidden material, fluff and fantasy spells, etc. If any member would be able to take authoritative actions here, the fluffs would use it just as well. The idea isn't that lovely after thinking about it from this side, am I right?

If this thread was meant to tell people who already have the authority to delete unrelevant material from this site, keep in mind that there are not many people who are able to take such actions. In fact, only the administrator (Petrarca) is able to delete or take any action about such spells.
Now, please observe all of the fluff spells and the fantasy spells. You'd be surprised to see the huge amount of those spells. There are thousands. We are not talking here only about several particular spells, we are talking about a large amount of them. There are plenty ! Think about one person who will have to delete all of these spells. This is impossible ! One person can't really deal with this large amount of unrelevant spells, though keep in mind that our administrator does everything to make the site better and is open to new suggestions.
Also do not forget that people might be too busy to sit for hours and delete those spells, it is a really hard job...

As mentioned before, this has been brought up for several times. I have observed the "site updates" thread, and there are many suggestions about getting rid of these spells.
If you wish to suggest for a way to get rid of them, post your idea in the "site updates" thread and your idea moght be promoted and developed. But keep in mind what I said above, and what Neko said ( you can also rate the spells down).

I agree they should be removed. It leads some novice kids into thinking they will become anyone of these creatures. Most of the kids on this site have no idea what Witchcraft really is.
