A ranking system? Book Forums

respect for those with Capped names

A ranking system?

Kayla~~~ Last week We left with the thoughts of ranking the Free both to promote learning and to make levels for Free to obtain to higher Their status...

Gornt~~~ ~listening to Kayla~

calia{Gornt}~~~ *~hands brushing back soft curls~* turning her attention to the topic,at hand....

Kayla~~~ Floor is open for comments....

shirin{SholGar}~~~ ~*~pondering the topic~*~ sounds like it could promote some good things.....

Gornt~~~ could be embarassing, M'Lady

Kayla~~~ ~smiling at shirin with a nod~ Could well be littleone *ss*

Lemuel~~~ ~chuckling at the silence following the Lady's question~
I can see both sides. It would be nice for new Patrons to know Who they could turn to for advice, besides the Advisors. On the other hand, it might discourage a lot of potentially good ppl.

Kayla~~~ Why embarassing Gornt ~puzzeled look~

shirin{SholGar}~~~ and how and Who would determine the status of the Free?

Gornt~~~ well those of Us newer to Gor may not measure up or rank as high as we would like

Lemuel~~~ Also, if a newer Person were to be ranked higher than One that had been with the Tavern longer, it might create some bad feelings.

Gornt~~~ ~chuckling~ aye

Kayla~~~ well those would be details for each site to make... but it would be up to each person just how far they would go... it would mean more involvement and more studying to learn about not only the site but also Gor on line and the books...

Lemuel~~ ~nodding~ I don't know how many People would be dedicated enough to reach the "higher" levels...

Kayla~~~ I think the start up has many potential problems such as that mentioned Lemuel but once in place it would be equal for All Free... to at least advance within the ranks of their chosen Caste

shirin{SholGar}~~~ knowing the great pride of Free Men, shirin doesn't think many would be too keen on the idea
she can see this working to get the Free to learn more, but it could also be discouraging and the Free don't take too well to that ~*~blushing smiles~*~ with all due respect

jasma{GS~FG}~~~ ~listening to the conversation.. quietly~

Lemuel~~~ ~nodding at shirin's words~ Aye, there are Some that would not like being "graded". And then there is the matter of Who would do the grading. ~S~

Kayla~~~ Some would and some wouldn't I guess... It is an idea with many problems attached.... any other ideas to get Free to become more involved and to keep them expanding their knowledge of Gor and to be better Masters/Mistresses????

Gornt~~~ ~*quietly listening~*

Gornt~~~ oh yes, I could see blood feuds beginning, between sites

Lemuel~~~ ~shrugging~ I've tried to come up with ideas before, but there are Few that usually participate even though the idea is well received, like the Free Men's forum. We typically have only a handful (or less) show up...

Gornt~~~ I try Lemuel
RT claims a lot of time

Kayla~~~ It seems the same People show up for everything *S*...

Lemuel~~~ ~nodding~ I understand Gornt, and I'm not pointing fingers or laying blame, just recognizing that even when people like an idea it is sometimes hard to make it work.

shirin{SholGar}~~~ ~*~nods, listening~*~

Lemuel~~~ ~nodding to the Lady~ Aye, true. There are valid conflicts that Some have. I know that I can not get online as much as I would like...

Kayla~~~ Agreed... I have My days also *S*...


Book Forums

Kayla~~~ Any topics for the floor?

Lemuel~~~ ~scratching head~ Well, there was jasma's question about if there would be more book discussions in the future...

Gornt~~~ if we are to be ranked on book knowledge, that would be a good idea

Kayla~~~ ~smiling at Lemuel~ I agree that it would be a wonderful idea... and to that I would only but need a volunteer and name the book of your choice *S*

Gornt~~~ I better do it while I have some

Lemuel~~~ ~chuckling thinking volunteers will be scarce~

Kayla~~~ Gornt ... You mean You will do a book?

Gornt~~~ sure why not, but it has to be on a Monday or Wednesday for One to be sure He is available

Kayla~~~ Monday durning a Forum... which book???

Kayla~~~ ~reeling Him in while the gettin is good *S*

Gornt~~~ Assasins of Gor

Gornt~~~ ~chuckling~ feeling like a Vosk shark on the hook~

Lemuel~~~ ~chuckling at the Physician's word's~

Kayla~~~ and what date... could You be ready next week???

Kayla~~~ ~whispering~ You are next Lem ~grinning wickedly~

calia{Gornt}~~~ *~calia smiles to her Master, hand gliding down His bearded jaw ~* listening......

Dak~~~ *laughing* at thr Advisor !

faaria{Dak~FG}~~~ shifting in her kneel as she listens to the conversations

Dak~~~ runnning My fingers thru My girls long tresses as I listen to the forum !

Kayla~~~ ~laughs~ Oh No! Have You been talking to Ceredigawn?

Kayla~~~ I think this should also be open to slaves.. for there is alot of knowledge of the books out there!!!

Dak~~~ yes there is,*grins* !

Kayla~~~ Gornt???? Next week?q

Gornt~~~ slaves always teach Masters new things

jasma{GS~FG}~~~ ~listening.. and speaking softly~
as in a slave leading one of the book discussions?

Gornt~~~ alright M'Lady

Kayla~~~ aye jasma *ss*... I particularly was thinking of you amoung others with strong book knowledge
Ok set in stone.. next week We will do Assassins led by Gornt *S*..
Lem and 2 weeks after that?

Lemuel~~~ ~grins~ O.K. - Any particular book?

Kayla~~~ I would ask for on of the later books that I haven't had the chance to read but I am open to any one of them *S*

Gornt~~~ ~marking a note on My palm~

Lemuel~~~ ~chuckling thinking I was *done* doing book reports~
Let's see that would put Mine on the 22nd of April, right?

jasma{GS~FG}~~~ ~listening to Mistress Kayla.. lowering eyes respectfully as a girl speaks~
with much respect Mistress.. although a girl has read near all the books.. her knowledge isn't so grand as to lead a discussion she don't feel Mistress..
~that feeling of dread entering her~

Kayla~~~ aye Lemuel... that way We could open the floor for topics every other week and also do the books...

Lemuel~~~ ~S~ Well, I'm reading "Kajira" now and will probably be well into "Players" by then...

Healer 20:05:48 CST

Kayla~~~ jasma I am sure you would do well but it is a volunteer thing... No One will force you or anyOne else... ~twisting Lemuels arm where None can see with a sweet smile~

Gornt~~~ ~chuckling at the Advisors silk gloved approach to strong arm tactics~

Lemuel~~~ ~chuckling at the Lady's words~

Kayla~~~ Who Me???? ~grinning~

jasma{GS~lowering eyes as Mistress Kayla speaks.. then looking to Master Lemuel quickly before dropping liquid gems once again~ yes Mistress

Kayla~~~ Well any more topics this night?

Gornt~~~ I think the Forum should retire early

Kayla~~~ Gornt You are always ready to end early *S*... But if there is no more topics then We will close and let You get a head jump in getting ready for next week... jasma will you post a reminder on the board later this week to remind everyone We will be doing the books next week...

Gornt~~~ only when Mine is here

jasma{GS~FG}~~~ yes Mistress.. a girl will..

Kayla~~~ Thank you jasma *ss*


respect for those with Capped names

Lemuel~~~ ~chuckles~ Not quite over, ja. Do you have a topic to keep it going?

BladeBane's ja`dain~~~ Actually, ja DOES have a topic if she may.

Kayla~~~ speak up ja'dain *S*

BladeBane's ja`dain~~~ Thank you, Mistress ~**smiles gratefully at the robed and veiled beauty**~
Respect. Respect according to the books. Not all free were granted respect by slaves, especially if their owners did not like that particular free. Slaves were often made to taunt and tease, show no respect whatsoever. Why would it be any different online that in the books? Just a topic that's been on ja's mind for a while.

Kayla~~ Good topic *S*...

Lemuel~~~ ~scratching My head~ I can only think of a couple instances in the books where a slave was openly disrespectful to a Free and that was when the Free was the prisoner of their Master...

Seafire~~~ Listens as I know Kayla enjoys This subject well*SS*

calia{Gornt}~~~ *~listening with curiousity...~* - as calia wondered the same , with slave to slave relations....

BladeBane's ja`dain~~~ That was what ja was thinking about, Master Lemuel. Those instances.
And a side tracking of sorts, how can we respect every person that comes into GS with a capped name? Do the free (not saying it's allowed to disrespect them because the free do, just curious)? respect all with a capped name that is?

Lemuel~~~ ~nodding understanding~ I see your point, ja. I try to give those that enter the *benefit of the doubt* until I am more familiar with them.

BladeBane's ja`dain~~~ ~**nods softly**~ As does ja, Master Lemuel.
May ja ask for some advice then?

Lemuel~~~ ~nodding~ Aye...

Kayla~~~ respect to all capped names and let the Free deal with the problem ones *S*... there are plenty that I agree do not deserve the respect and I am quite sure of some slaves being able to tell the good from the bad... but it would be dangerous to allow slaves the freedom to choose who they serve

Lemuel~~~ ~nodding~ Aye Kayla. Just because a Free makes an insulting comment about another Free's behavior does not mean the slaves can then join in.

BladeBane's ja`dain~~~ Oh very true, Mistress, ja *does* see your point. After all, what would slavery be if there was total freedom? It would not be slavery (apart from total freedom in certain areas).
But what if....your owner finds someone a total joke? As a slave, you mold to your owner...in a way, no matter how freely you are kept, you take over most of his/her opinions....so how to deal with it? When everything inside you screams that this person is not a man in any way, shape or form?
ja's honestly asking for help here....this is not a joke

Lemuel~~~ ~nodding~ Privately, with your Master, you may voice those opinions if He permits, but publicly, even amongst other slaves, it is improper to make disparaging remarks about a Free. My two tarsk bits.

Kayla~~~ Been there done that... have the T-shirt... wanna see???
no matter what the bare amount of respect is due from a slave... the Free should ban together or the Council. or Admins and take care of the problem but the slave showing disrespect for the "HNG" (or whatever) shows Me that one day the slave may well decide the same of Me?... and for a slave to judge Free on Gor is just unheard of what ever the reason *S*

BladeBane's ja`dain~~~ ~**nods thoughtfully**~ Thank you, Master Lemuel.

BladeBane's ja`dain~~~ Very true, Mistress. But...how could one ever see *you* as a joke?? ~**smiles warmly**~

Kayla~~~ I hope not but everyOne has their own opinion... I have had My share of enemies on Gor in the years I have been here...

Gornt~~~ ~chuckling~ I know I do

Kayla~~~ Well if there is no more We will close the Forum to an end... thank you all for coming and participating *S*

Lemuel~~~ ~S~ Thank You Kayla for another interesting night.

BladeBane's ja`dain~~~ Thank you, Mistress for letting ja ask her questions

jasma{GS~FG}~~~ thank You, Mistress Kayla

Dak~~~ Thanks Advisor !

shiri{EK}~~~ shiri thanks You Mistress Kayla **smiles**

faaria{Dak~FG}~~~ Thank You Mistress Kayla

Kayla~~~ ~Nodding~ I hope to see a full crowd next week...

Gornt~~~ thanks Kayla
