So Pit... I have a proposition from the group for the disestablishment of the 'ONLY' threads.
So listen up.

We, the group for the disestablishment of the so-called 'ONLY' threads, are of the opinion that all threads concerning broad topics, such as the relationship thread and the gaming thread, should be discontinued due to their extremely ineffective nature and their detremental effect on the Pit in general.
By removing these threads we feel that the Pit will become a much more lively place where actual debate can take place instead of legitimate and interesting threads being shut down because of all-encompassing, ineffective and generally annoying 'ONLY' threads.

It is our intention to refuse to use these threads and to spread this philosophy in an attempt to overthrow the current system.


If you didn't get that... We think the 'ONLY' threads (and by that we mean the relationship thread, the drugs thread, the gaming thread etc.) are stupid. They are far too cluttered and chaotic for any actual debate or discussion to take place and they are detremental to the Pit in general. These threads lead to the closure of legitimate and interesting threads that people get genuinely involved in.
We would therefore like to see these 'ONLY' threads closed and a return to the system whereby new threads can be made freely without fear of them being closed due to the presence of a vague, disorganized mess that might contain relevant information buried under piles of irrelevant information.

So I urge you, Pit Monkeys, Pitopotomusses and Pit Foxes to join the ...

Is this the ONLY 'Disestablishment of the 'ONLY' threads' thread?

You need at least three.

I think the Relationship Thread, Sex Thread, Computer thread, Ipod thread etc etc should stand, but the gaming thread is really ineffective, it's essentially a chat room for its regulars, which makes it pretty useless for anyone else.

This is fucking stupid. There's like 200 pages in each of those threads. Would you want that many more threads about the same things. Think about it.

YES.


More so, removing the 'Only' threads would result in a total flood of threads with questions at these topics. The 'Only' threads were made for a reason.

The Relationship thread is helpful as fuck. gtfo.

Lol code fail xD

But on that note the relationship thread has helped me once... But I've posted in it quite a few times and alot was ignored.

On that note, I think the Hugging Thread is the most helpful thread when it comes to relationship stuff if you're just looking for support and not advice.

Yep. Changed it anyway. I was in a rush because I'd thought it would get closed.

i agree with this, i hate the gaming thread, its a chat room for Halo 3 and Final Fallacy fanboys.
The Mitch Clem formula
1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
4)??????
5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)

You've only been here for a year. Shush.

I actually think it's a good idea. I know it cleans up the Pit a lot, but ideas for new threads then get reduced to shit and spam.

One can only imagine what the tpoic list would look like...
"O HAI SO WAT DRUGS SHUD I TK 2NITE LULZ"
"MY GF BRUK UP WITH mE aNd I want to KilL MyElF"
"Obama or McCain?"
"Palin or Biden?"
"Obama or McCain?"
"Democrat or Republican?"
"I love weed!"
"Relationship troubles, over Obama and McCain on their drug policies"

You get the picture.

Then they could've just posted again. It happens sometimes. They had a reason to re-post their question, so no harm done.

Drug Thread: Should stay.
iPod/Computer/Specific accessories like that: Should stay.
Relationship Thread: Should be reset imo.
Political Thread: Does anyone use this?
Religion Thread: Should go.
Etc etc.

Don't worry. It will. You're not the first person to try and change how things work.

I expect a closing post something along the lines of:

Perhaps, you should also consider the pit didn't start the day you registered, meaning the system in place was in effect and has worked long before you thought of that username. In short get used to it or go away?

I completely agree with TS. If we keep this up the pit will be reduced a dozen "ONLY" threads. We answer questions better when they are done in separate threads.

ONLY threads organise information easier for the users and are kept in check to see if people have questions that need answering. It's very rarely that they aren't.
