Changes to the Community from RoseSpells's blog


I thank Calamity for posting something similar. I did have this typed up yesterday, but was rereading it before posting it. I know it can be a delicate topic as of right now. It's important to know the intentions of something to resolve matters before they get out of hand.


Lately, I've been noticing a lot of concern and criticism in regards to a new erotic hypnosis site being started (specifically this one). A lot of people appear to be disapproving. Some people have said that it creates a splintering affect on the community. Others have this strange thought-process that there can only be a certain number of erotic hypnosis sites and they're all at a kind of war with each other. A lot of people seem to be very skeptical and overly-critical for a need of a new hypnosis site. I'm not really certain where those concerns come from.


First, let's get this out in the open. I am a moderator now of Hypwatch. The administrators of this site are, in fact, dear friends of mine. I'm not exactly unbiased in this matter, I suppose. I do, however, feel that this matter is important to be addressed as soon as possible, to hopefully put some of these negative feelings towards this site to rest early on.


Please note: these are my thoughts, feelings, and opinions on the topic. This is how I've seen the creation of this site since before it came into existence. There's been a need for a new site for a long while now, in my opinion, and it just so happens that these are the people who have created it.


“Where Everyone is Welcome.” This is the tagline that's posted nearly everywhere on Hypwatch. It's so, so important to me. There are erotic hypnosis sites out there that force you to full-out verify you are who you say you are through a sequence of tasks.


Others expect you to be a certain type of person (submissive, slave, hypnotist-only, etc). This is fine. I'm not saying there's anything against these types of websites. But this site, Hypwatch, is accepting of anyone who is eighteen years and over (which is a prerequisite for any possibly-adult-themed website) and anyone who is human (of course, I imagine I could make a case for the non-humans out there). Hypwatch is claiming to be ready and raring to let anyone in, and to keep the users safe still in the process.


Anonymity is important to a lot of people in this community. Jobs and lives hang in the balance and the forcing of people to reveal themselves is very frightening. I don't have this fear, but I know a lot of people who do.


As for splintering the community, I don't see any fear of that. People talk and converse about other sites all the times.It's not exactly appropriate etiquette, but recommendations are more than welcome for other sites. This is just another entry way to the erotic hypnosis community- a way to find other sites as well. There's nothing wrong with options, and it shouldn't be taking anyone away from previously-used sites. And if it does, maybe that other site isn't what you're looking for. Again, giving options isn't a bad thing. In fact, it should just help the community grow stronger.


This site is work in progress. It's growing and building and only aiming to help the community band together. We are hypno-kinksters united, finding ourselves and helping others find themselves in different ways. Hypwatch can be a gateway for people to find their inner-kinkster. It can help people find bonds beyond they can not imagine. And I think that, together, we can make the hypnosis community bigger and more united than anyone ever thought possible.

I put a comment on Calamity's as well -- but HF is dangerous, HB's current registration policy really is exclusionary, and Inraptured is a commercial delivery platform (* nothing wrong with that, and I do use Inraptured). I would never have even considered setting up an account on Hypbook with the current registration policy there -- it just wouldn't have happened.I put a comment on Calamity's as well -- but HF is dangerous, HB's current registration policy really is exclusionary, and Inraptured is a commercial delivery platform (* nothing wrong with that, and ...See more

I tried not to namedrop at all in my post. Those are some examples, but not the only ones. I'm not trying to bash or slander any names. I'm just stating my view. but yes, I, and many others most likely, agree with your statements.I tried not to namedrop at all in my post. Those are some examples, but not the only ones.

Clearly hypwatch hates me. I had a really long response here and it ate it...

Although I did mention having written some of it yesterday while on the drive home and wondering if we were writing at the same time. something about a hypnotic plot to sync our brainwaves

The EH community is growing and technology is playing. Also, this isn't the Highlander. There can be more than one!

Ok just for the record, having MORE places to branch out and meet new faces and make new friends (this is coming from a newbie everyone, and I was managing a site too at one point) this isn't the first time the Hypnosis community opened up more "Microcommunities" or as My mentor would say, "Pocket Communities" and I for one hope it will not be the last one.Ok just for the record, having MORE places to branch out and meet new faces and make new friends (this is coming from a newbie everyone, and I was managing a site too at one point) this isn't the firs...See more

Is that moderation affecting what appears on the frontpage feeds? I'm used to seeing all posts in a timeline order, but that doesn't appear to be happening here - is that deliberate?

The timeline is based not just on the original post, but on any activity on the post. So when you like or comment on a post, that becomes the most recent activity on the newsfeed, and therefore takes that post back to the top of the newsfeed.
