Re: The discussion areas of TTD

Here we are having a conversation in a heavily moderated area of the Den with a big "whats your thoughts" sign on the front page and no one but the regulars are talking.

Why change things for people that don't care and will never join in conversation?

Re: The discussion areas of TTD

because Buzz Kill thinks they just maybe maybe might join in some kinda way......I suppose he wants more people to read his long winded diatribes...I think most of us here have seen more than enough of that tripe....
always presume things are ego driven to proven otherwise, right?

Re: The discussion areas of TTD

regarding the lounge, why not set a minimal amount of posts before one is allowed in the lounge. dont have the count be public, if possible. you'd have massive post whores, trying to get the higher count. this will also cut down on the amount of new troll aliasas.

Re: The discussion areas of TTD

Part of the problem here that B_K has addressed has been the trolling going on, but the other part of the problem has been with lack of participation in the lounge not generating any new post whores. Why not put a link in the registration email as well as in the successfully completed registration screen about stopping by the lounge and introducing yourself. It would generate some new users to the lounge, at least saying hello, and let them look around a bit.

Maybe send out a pm with a link to a "long time listener first time caller" thread for current members to stop into the lounge and say hello as well...

New ideas! An Introduction Thread could be a good idea.

Re: The discussion areas of TTD

Perhaps it's time to retire this?

Seems that most folks will warm to subtle changes before radical ones.

Re: The discussion areas of TTD

Just remove the n00b part.
That'll free it up for use in telling anyone to STFU.

if you banned banning, with the exception of torrents, then all should be ok. or not.
