Howdy fellow Pit monkeys, so I was lurking as I usually do and there were a couple of threads closed before I could post.

The Logan and Devin thread seemed pretty cool, but it got closed for being spam, mainly, I guess because there was no topic whatsoever, but the thread kept going just fine.

I realize this is probably going to get closed, and I hope I don't get a warning or get banned.
I'm not dissing the mods, or trying to start a "revolution" but everyone keeps saying that The Pit just isn't as good as it used to be, and among other reasons, it may be because there are a bunch of threads that may have potential but get closed for being "spam" or similar to older threads, etc.

Threads should get closed but when there's a good reason for it, I mean, may be a thread is about nothing, but as long as it keeps going and its good, why close it?

Am I the only one who thinks this?

TL;DR: May be mods should be more flexible with closing threads.

Mods: Don't take this as an offense, please don't ban me.

Don't count on it. Mods are sadists who like to play God and watch lesser people scream.

The mods do as the mods do. Don't bother fighting, you wont change anything.
I actually think they make good decisions in spam classification.

ever thought that the threads NEED to be closed down, there seems to be an influc of "newbies" creating really pointless threads lately, and older veterens getting bored and following suit.

Personally it seems to me that the majority of closed thread really deserve to be shut.

I know what you mean... like Slash42's thread a couple weeks ago was so awesome, but it got closed.... I don't understand where topics like that, WHERE PEOPLE TRY AND HAVE CONVERSATION get closed, but that stupid "what would you say if you woke up to find the guy above you in your bed" game is STILL around...

I know what you're saying.

alot of threads NEED to be closed, however the mods are alot more stricter that they used to be.
when I joined many a spam thread was never closed because it was witty and the people who posted in it extended the wittiness, however lately there have been to many idiots who spam threads with 4chan memes, and that really needs to be cut at the roots.

I think the mods are doing a good job now, and even carmel, who I used to think was a super-hard-ass, has gotten the feeling of which threads really need to be closed and which threads are okay. go carmel, you're okay now!

I like how you were like ' Carmel used to close down threads like a motherb*tch' then you saved your ass by saying 'You're ok now'

I didnt actually read much of it as it got closed, so I didnt bother, I gave that example cos it was the last one I saw, and it could had been good if it hadnt been closed.

And I do realize there are some threads that indeed need to be closed, but there are some that dont.

And +1 to Yeti60 and thanks for getting me

This is more for discussion of topics that aren't covered by other forums. Its not a chat its a discussion forum. That's why pointless threads get closed. This thread however actually has a point and is a discussion, This isn't spam.

What I mean is pointless threads that have no topic. I used ****ty phrasing, what I mean is organized discussion. Threads should be around a certain topic, not just random chatting.

Very small differences, I think.

Chat/discussion/conversation/talk are pretty interchangeable.

But in your definition a "discussion" is closer to what I was talking about earlier with "conversation-like" threads being closed.

Oh I agree... what I mean with conversation is that this thread that Slash42 started talked about a specific aspect and a conversation arose from it that didn't have a whole lot of strict criteria but was interesting nonetheless.

and sorry for the double post.

true. I dunno we are allowed some "chat" threads such as gentleman thread or huggin thread, no discussion there. Maybe the key is to create context where the chat can happen?

Yeah, that makes the most sense. Quality threads that leave room for discussion and whatnot... rather than "your favorite bands thread" or "stereotype the user above you thread" where no one really reads any other post.

I personally close threads that break the rules. I don't go by any "this is not what I like so let's close it". I have no personal vendetta against anyone, though some may think so. I always reply to PMs asking me why a thread was closed, some I even reopen.

For example: if you think the rules of the pit are too strict and something should be done about it, you should post in the site feedback forum. Not in the pit.

*closed*
