Personally its really discouraging to see. I can ignore the spam or trolling pretty well, but the giant box of common sense is repetitive. I feel like its been up for far too long. Can we please take it down now? I just rather have immature trolls.

My thoughts exactly.

I can't say I visit less because of 'the giant box of common sense' (well-put), but I will say the boards seem less active since it was put up.

Don't you spend most of your time on here reporting people? I wouldn't be surprised if your reports make up the majority made.

With that aside, after a few days you just get use to the giant list of rules at the top. Yes, its annoying, but I just scroll down quickly to get past it. laugh.gif

So what's the thinking here? Ten people think having to press the page down key one more time is too strenuous for them? I haven't read the list once because I know it's not for me. I don't really know who it's for, but I don't mind it.

Actually I've seen plenty of threads mysteriously disappear without my help. Also, when doc took his shots at me I didn't report it....didn't have to either. I'm sure I'm not the only one reporting, just the only one being open and honest about it because I'm immune to peer pressure and don't care if people call me a "narc."

It's obvious from the fact that there are like 5 posts daily now across all topics that the frivolous modding is killing the forums rather quickly. I am actually shocked that this poll and all the posts on it haven't been removed yet as they break the rules about discussing modding tongue.gif

Logically, I can only take this to mean that the rules about remaining on topic supersede those that pertain to not discussing modding, and as this thread is about discussing modding... perhaps it will continue to survive laugh.gif

Correct.

You can discuss board moderation on a topic regarding board moderation. We don't want to prevent people from expressing their opinions, we just don't want a topic to go off on a tangent about a deleted post.

A while ago there was also a bit of discussion of the rule notifications on the off-topic lounge's immortal thread, which was allowed because you're allowed to go off topic as much as you want in that area of NF.


As for board activity, the statistics show a slight drop but it doesn't seem too much different than the normal up and down cycles over the last 6-12 months.


I was about to shrink the notice down to a link, but after some recent situations I think I'll hold off on that a few days.

By 'recent situations', I'm pretty sure she mostly means me posting a picture of an on-topic lolcat and commenting on why it was deleted.

What if you don't break them, but still get posts deleted/warned/suspended/banned?

--------------------
Did you ever notice how in the Bible, when ever God needed to punish someone, or make an example, or whenever God needed a killing, he sent an angel? Did you ever wonder what a creature like that must be like? A whole existence spent praising your God, but always with one wing dipped in blood. Would you ever really want to see an angel?
