"Ad Campaign Casting"

subforum each campaign season similar to the "Runway Casting" thread that exists there [and is a lot of fun and hassle free for mods] every fashion season.
That way the ads could be posted and all the model fans and stans could post their quick quips about ad campaign casting without annoying the members who really want to look at the campaigns from a more fashion/art related perspective.
And as visiualoptimism pointed out, it's fine to post a comment about what the model is bringing to a campaign in the
subforum as long as they expand on it.
I also think a thread should exist in
"Ad Campaign Wishlist"
before each season, and the news thread should be limited to just NEWS with sources. This was another thread I became quickly annoyed with this season for much of the same reason. [I think a thread like this actually exists somewhere in the
subforum but it became quickly buried this year, perhaps putting it in a different subforum would make it clearer].
That's not limiting anyone's power of speech -- it's just shifting things around a bit and making everything cleaner and clearer.
I'm sorry people think that moderators are being too strict and that are rules are stifling, but whether you want to admit it or not the rules on tFS keep the integrity of the board (a board even industry insiders use as a resource as there is a TON of information on this board) from becoming just another sloppy fashion fan site without merit.
We do always take it into consideration the needs and feedback from our members, because even though we are mods at the end of the day we are regular members just like all of you and
want what is best for the board.
How about completely seperate campaign threads in the model area of the forum:
Prada S/S 12 Campaign Casting
, or a subsection in the model area exclusively for this use.
