I suggest a change
« on: February 22, 2011, 03:58:04 PM »
Apparently all the good posters except maybe a couple old-timers are gone
(Agent excluded, he always gets emotional and gets trolled).
Everyone turned into a spammer, spamming and spamming
and spamming useless crap all over the board.

Getting to actual content is harder than before, and so I suggest appointing
a mod or two who would extract all the useful content into a separate,
read-only portion of the forum,

Also, people should begin to get banned, or at least silenced. Dimmy was banned several times,
always for being agressive. Is spamming not being agressive towards the reader?
It certainly is, as I see it.
Therefore, I believe the best course of action is to keep to a small rule:
"If your post is not relevant to the topic, you get your posting rights taken form you for 24-48 hours"
Notice I said "relevant to the topic", not "to any of the previous posts".
This forces every post has to be kept on track, discussing a given problem/ option or issue, without having all the "he said she said/ it's his fault/ she started" emotional bullshit.
If you want to discuss matters personally/ feel offended because of a post, take it to PMs.

I dearly cling to the idea that somebody (frvge) will decide to bring this to life and the forum will become
easy-to-use again.

I'll take it in consideration. If approved, we'll have to think of a way to choose the mod(s).

I think quoting someone should get rid of all pictures in what is quoted.

I abuse it faaaar too much, and it's unintentionally done far too many times also.

;D
If you haven't noticed, I'm REALLY good at making a simple response into a wall of text.

I'm sick of being mentioned as if im some douchebag that wandered around the forums looking for someone to fight with... leavbe me out of it or get the facts!!

I actually agree, I think it's weird that you came back on so many fake accounts, but at the end of the day you were just defending yourself against nerds ganging up on you, trying to be cool :P

You are responsible for your past actions. You should take it like a man instead of whinning.

Succubus should be banned right away then because this is not in the "About Our Site" section. 

I keed, i keed.

But seriously, the mods are far to lax to ever implement something like this.

well... as long as Dread and Agent don't get the mod position, it's fine with me  ;D

B1nArY_001 just got semi-global modship. Yay for him.

If needed, we'll see about picking a member from the community later.
