Default Re: Message board suggestions thread

I've had this idea in my head for a couple years, but was too lazy. Make a thread that posts how many times a poster says something stupid and quote the poster's post for reference. I only mean blatantly stupid posts. Not even the one line "Kobe sucks" ones because there are only 24 hours in a day.

I don't know if Jeff would delete it due to "attacking people", but it would work.

Basically the first post would have each name of a culprit with a score next to it for each stupid post. The the rest would be the evidence.

Don't even need to be a mod to do this....but again, the mods might delete it because some 10 year old cried about being singled out.

that's actually a good idea, maybe less than 500, but the idea would go along way to stopping the instant alias's that pop up just to post flames....

i'm in favor of a stickied thread where bans are posted by admin with the offending post displayed.. that would show us posters that want the site to improve that there is a positive result when we complain about a certain poster

Polls would be nice. Maybe a sub forum just for polls?

I also vote StroShow4 for mod!

and I vote for myself for mod of the Pistons forum

Plenty of new posters make good, intelligent threads, however.

OTC needs some mods man.

Just one or two. One of them needs to be B-Low.

The other can be your choice.

Maybe only make it like 100 posts or something. That way it isn't hard to reach for the good, intelligent new posters, but it will still prevent alias's from coming on and immediately flaming.

Just a thought.

how about they post around, let's say, a good 200 times before they have that priviledge? therefore they have a solid reputation, while troll/alias accounts are less determined or spotted before they reak havok.

StroShow4 for moderator!

I'd also like to see the team forums get used more as well. Sure, maybe some teams just don't have a lot of fans, but some go days w/o posts. Maybe something like you need 100 posts in a team forum before the others are accessible.

Honestly all that would do is we'd have people post whoring just to get to their 500th post so they can make threads, and it would suck for all of us who've been banned before or had our accounts get locked up and had to make new usernames like me.

- More Mods, especially in here
- Only one mod per screenname
- Less repetitive threads (lock em, delete em, or merge em)
- Merge some of these forums... International forum is useless, Draft and College/High School should be merged, Video Games forum should be removed. It would help bring more to the OTC, since all we see talk here is politics, music, and cartmanclone's life
- less talk of rep points... its like a popularity contest on here. I understand if you tell someone you repped them, but don't make threads asking for reps

True, then how about 200 posts or so, until they get that privilege.

Also, if it's possible, can we eliminate smilies as a post? What I mean is sometimes people post only a smily(ies) without any words. Forbid or eliminate the possibility of that.

I agree with that.

I don't really understand the purpose of an unregulated rep system. It just encourages ass kissing.

You should make it so you can't rep someone back right after they rep you if that's possible. That way people wouldn't just make "rep me and i'll rep you" threads.
