Re: Why don't you visit the Lounge @ TTD? (public poll)

Well,That was quite the read....To be honest with you guys,I forgot the forums were even here for a long time...used to read them years ago..Stumbled back on to them a couple months ago...Gotta love a good freezer thread ....Read a few of them and then checked a few others out,not many I would post in or even bother goin back to......The banter back and forth between the few who post (and their covert names) can be funny at times but it gets old quick...The tagging gets kinda lame also,everyone trying to one up the next guy/gal.....then the trolling starts and it just becomes a bunch of 5th graders pointing at each other across the schoolyard,again,comical at times but how many times can you read "fixed that for you" in a forum post before it becomes assinine......I really think the main problem is that too few people even know the forums are here,I know its a stupid assumption,however,I mod over at LL and we moved the forums off the front page once and it slowed the whole forum post thing down....when it was put back posts increased,the whole out of sight out of mind thing....I dont know how the tracker works here but maybe putting the last 5 forums posted to(I think LL has 10) on the torrent page or index page(our tracker is set up so its on every page) would get you some exposure and bring in more people...just a thought....either way,thanks for reading and I am sure someone will quote me and put "fixed that for you" in the post......

I found out why people don't post anymore here. They all are making six figures now. See my signature.

@JamesKG

this plan or speculative notion you have of banning aliases... how exactly will it work?
will members have to use their real names?
coz right now, pretty much 99% of everyone on this site is an alias.
not like the school buddies you chat with on Facebook who use their real names and are-who-they-say-they-are because you know them personally.
you know what i mean?
i've always argued that screen-names are aliases.
i laugh when people say "use your original nick name!"
why? what difference does it make? you never knew who i was anyway!
why not cut through the crap entirely, and make this a real social network?

see, James, you were discussing and working on the idea of restricting aliases. you can't pretend to forget just because the conversational heat is on.

not too sure banning alias's will solve all of the lounge "issues". the truely nefarious trolls will simply log in elsewhere under other ip's.

Re: Why don't you visit the Lounge @ TTD? (public poll)

james wasn't the one who proposed banning aliases...i have before, many times

and as chinajoe mentioned above, they will simply log in through an IP mask or proxy...we've all come to the conclusion tho that most aliases are outta fun and thats fine, the ones used for actual trolling/flame wars will be banned...case-by-case

As a lurker, I gotta say that I read the posts/threads in the lounge mainly for entertainment purposes. There's actually some pretty funny content in there.
To be honest, if the lounge was moderated heavier, not only would I not be more likely to post, but I would probably wouldn't go there at all.

see, James, you were discussing and working on the idea of restricting aliases. you can't pretend to forget just because the conversational heat is on.

discussed, because some staff members want it. What we have been discussing, specifically, is *how* we might ban and *enforce* that ban.


As for me, I do not particularly favor either position - but I do not know (and neither does anyone else, so far) how we would effectively enforce such a ban.

for the time being, we have decided to ban specific aliases when they become a problem, on a case-by-case basis. This could change.

it's pretty obvious: the less moderated = the best

Re: Why don't you visit the Lounge @ TTD? (public poll)

I have noticed a whole shit load of lurkers in the Lounge as of late. IMO, this thread and the others like it have just made what goes on in the Lounge more noticeable to a few people who never went in there, but they still don't post in it because they have nothing to offer or are afraid of getting butt hurt.

Or maybe I'm just looking at the "Currently Active" status more or are on at times I am usually not. But it seems like every few hours I am viewing a thread and I look at the Currently Active section and think "Who the fuck is that?"
