Dear *ods

Recommended Posts

You've probably realised that anytime a known user is banned, Feedback becomes about as active as TGR used to be - even if it is limited to essentially spreading the same debate a across a small handful of threads.

 

With that in mind, I propose an easy way to increase (non-tech) forum participation, if not outright traffic:

 

Ban someone every fortnight. Perhaps every week. IMO, however, it should be for something different, at least superficially, each time, so that there is always a new bunch of rules and grievances to argue about. If you want to shake it up a bit, you could also announce in a thread that you are demoting Heroes in absentia; this should nicely answer the narky yearly responses of 'oh more Heroes? lol more than half the active members are Heroes, how meaningless'. If you really get desperate, may I suggest randomly demoting a mod, too? You can use a similar argument as for demoting Heroes, in that it will concentrate the awesomeness in those remaining, Highlander-style. And hey, Highlander has swords, so it can't be bad.

 

Because I am the decent and honourable type, I feel it's only fair that I offer up the first sacrifice. Oh, not me, I mean that Ihsan guy. I hear he's spent years trying to get me banned, I believe the time-out will do him good. Plus it'll mean one less person laughing at all of David's MMO preferences.

 

Lots of love,

 

Some Old Tart

I endorse and approve this idea and all it's content.

 

I also endorse the use of humorous or punny unique ranks as rewards/punishments or just for shits and giggles.

Yep, sounds like a plan, could also randomly delete sections no one gives a crap about, who is even good at photography anyway :P

I would, personally, be casting glances at that Mac Dude guy, too. Trying to claim royalties from a Nicholas Kurti quote sounds like he might be trying to get in some impersonating. And that avatar of his looks a little pornographic.

 

Not to mention he is both a former mod and a super hero. And he is always second guessing you guys and trying to tell you how he did such a better job when he was modding up hill in the snow with no pants on.

Good idea.

 

You wouldn't even need to forge reasons why, just crack down on shitposting like this:

 

Some pretty terrible posting, complete with near-incoherence. User loses posting privileges for 3 days.

You need to work on your posting, it's absolutely terrible. User loses posting privileges for 6 hours.

Low effort post. User loses posting privileges for 1 day.

Enjoy your iPad. User loses posting privileges for 3 days.

 

After a few months, the two remaining users can have a great discussion with the *ods about how shitty everybody was, and how great it is now that the forum has no posts.

 

Silence is golden, as they say!

Somehow, calling someone a cuntface is only a bad thing, not a very bad thing. It will just result in you being contacted by a mod... If they're being consistent....

 

 

 

So stop being a fucking wanker, bushi. ;)
