We've had a recent increase of n00bs posting pointless / double threads, and a recent decrease of Greety. Since everyone (myself very much included) flames the hell out of starters of said pointless threads, we've always got a froth of stupidity on the beer of our forum. Until Greety comes back, the only way we can avoid this is to stop bumping the n00bs' threads.

We've got to go back to our original rules:
Report a thread and type that you've done so in the thread.
Be courteous and remind other not to post again.
Quote by The Example
*reported*
Nobody else post or you will be warned!
If it's a multiple thread, it's also considerate to post the link to the original thread.

Now, I know that a lot of the newer 'regulars' like to get their opinion in there anyway to look 'kvlt' or something. But if someone's reported say, a second thread which is asking which Metallica album to buy, PLEASE avoid the temptation to recommend "AJFA, MoP, and RTL - in that order".
Not only will this help to cut down on the general level of idiocy in here, but it will also help to cut down on the number of n00bs, since they will be warned when they re-post in their own threads.

If we all get on side here, we can make things a lot easier in here for Bo, since he's working alone right now. That is all.

I think we should ask in the Site Feedback for some other mod from UG to temp for greety while hes gone. We have a lot of closed threads clogging up this forum.

Read my post. Not this.

Sounds like a good idea. Hopefully it will work.

Hopefully the threadstarters themselves wont bump the threads.

spike was a tyrannical cun't.



At least he knew what threads to close

Look at all these tuning threads, chat threads and games....

#17
I do concur, especially seeing as I seem to be flying solo and at uni (vastly decreased spare time)

I still do what I can but you can't expect threads to be closed instantly, especially seeing as the forum is most active when I'm asleep/getting merry.

I can't delete things just coz one or two guys don't like it, if you don't like the thread, don't post in it, otherwise its spamming which is more annoying than the thread itself ever was.

It's great.

My study begin on Oct. 4th... not much more UG then I guess... I miss you guys already *cries*

Still, some cleaning would help this forum... I wonder if something a colomn cleaner or similar could get permission to delete closed or double threads or something like that...

Maybe sticky this...some people don't seem to have got the point (a bit like the "Thinking of posting about Trivium...?" thread)
#32
But it's so much more fun when people don't see it coming!

It goes like this:

Stupid post
BAM NOWAI WARNING!!!

Yeah, but, a degree? The only things i can see is becoming are a philosophy teacher, or a writer who writes about philosophy.

If you people don't take these forums as seriously as you usually do ,perhaps you would see that all these threads are good material for me to laugh at.
Although I must admit the flames have gone quite stale in the last couple of weeks. Perhaps it's the tons of threads and replies you people have to make but I have noticed a decline.

Oh the irony of a Trivium thread popping up and people not taking Fishy's suggestion when they said they would. =P
#37
Lol. I posted in that thread like a douche. T'was my last one, I swear.

You still gotta consider the infinite amount of non-regulars who don't follow the rules.
