Re: The discussion areas of TTD

What ONE person suggested was that more mods might be helpfull. Again, I would like to hear some opinions from OTHER people. Especially since it seems like you are going to post a special poll for each opinion offered.

incorrect. That isn;t what he said. I don't think many would say the mods, here, aren't helpful.


What he said was that the mods "don't give a shit" and "don't enforce the rules" and we should "ban those that deserve it".

I do not see how you can read that any other way than him suggesting heavier moderation in the Lounge.


I'm not saying I am against it, I am simply asking how it will help participation? I doubt that it would, but I am open to hearing what people think.

An anonymous poll is a great way to find out.

Anonymous poll is not a great way to find out, its a way for every alias to vote.

Re: The discussion areas of TTD

I'd love to hear comments from the greater TTD userbase.

The thought in the beginning was the lounge would not be modded hardly at all and that the paino bar would. It was my original desire to leave the lounge to it's own devices and just deal with the crap when it arose. Obviously I see that 6 years later that plan did not bode so well. I was wrong and do not want the lounge to be heavily modded, just get rid of the BS.

I think the piano bar could and maybe should be left as it is for people to talk music. In the end though like the rest of the site it does receive collateral damage from the small group of people that troll the discussion areas using multiple accounts/aliases. If the lounge was better taken care of (read: more mods and rules enforced and followed regardless of who is doing it), then the rest of the site would benefit. Maybe not a lot, but the lounge would be more welcoming to new users, and any little bit of help with regards to the site as a whole should be at least entertained.

At this point I am just throwing ideas out there and asking if anyone has any others.

I appreciate your input. Nice to see how the older people feel

There are mods here that don't give a shit about the lounge and probably should not mod there at all. Fact.

Just enforce the rules and instead of DCbullet going it alone and having other site mods come in and try and help, often can be problematic too.

You yourself James post semi-regular personal attacks against freezer. Not saying he doesn't have it coming sometimes I am just saying it needs to be addressed better than just breaking the rules yourself.
Trolling the trolls will not make them go away.

Maybe it won't do a damn thing. I think the level of participation on any discussion board is directly tied to the behavior that is allowed.

I posted there what I thought about the poll. Great idea, but anonymous....

I don't really care what all the aliases think. One vote, one user.

Yes me too.

It will take awhile for the thread to develop past the people that have been talking about this now for some time.

I already know what most of the staff think. There are other staff members though that have remained very silent about this topic. Interested in what they think too.

I am also very interested in what users that stopped using the lounge that were once very active there think.

One of the admins have already chimed in. I would love to hear from the other 2.

Re: The discussion areas of TTD

For the record, I deleted some "Lounge type" posts from this thread. Nobody else has deleted any posts.

Your leave well enough alone vote has been counted.

Any reasons why?

It won't really affect you. I consider you to be one of the types of users that I wish we had more of. You actually contribute to the discussion community. Be it, music knowledge or humor. You are articulate and well spoken.

I do wish to attract more people like that. Do you have any opinions as to why out of 80k+, such a small amount of people post and/or stay active in those areas.

Tell me Craig, why do you oppose any attempts to try and make it better.

Other than 'it won't work'

Yes they do come here for music.

But the discussion side of the site could be better.

Maybe if the discussion side had the efforts from the staff that the music side gets, it would get to be a great as the rest of the site.
