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

feel free to delete this post but I'm beginning to think if we ban bill_kate, the appearance of any problems might evaporate


except for all of the trolling alias accounts, you could ban those also IMO

The only recent exception I can think of is Wolf, who pulled some shennanigans over the last few months. That was discussed and dealt with, productively imo. That hasn't happened since the start of the year, that I can think of. Maybe that is what you are referring to?
Yes, recently things are going a bit better, I appreciate any effort form the staff there. And will state again if this discussion is all that needs to take place to keep it moving away from the crap, then it is serving it's purpose. More people will post if some of the rules (taking arguments to every thread, personal attacks, multiple accounts to harass people, and just ugly posts for the sake of ugly posts). That is sort of common sense to me. Some people may enjoy the banter between 2 people arguing the same argument, to me it gets boring and that is why it was put in the original set of rules.

There may be staff here that do not agree with the original rules, the updated rules, whatever. Fine, then post some current ones that won't be allowed and can be agreed on by staff, and users. That was also something discussed at length in the beginning, the fact that this site should cater to the users, not the staff.

I am looking back over the last few years and trying to figure out why the general discussion area here seems to not attract many users. It has not always been that way. No secret that I have opinions on it, I do see it from a different perspective than the average user, I actually do know why it was created along with the downloads forums.

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

it isn't just TTD... many social aspects of online communication are moving away from BBS / BB systems and toward more realtime platforms, like twitter / facebook, etc.

The trend is pretty widespread, encompasses ten-fold the cumulative number of people that ever posted on these older platforms and many users of these older platforms have been caught up in it and spend more of their social posting time on those newer, more popular platforms.

One of the things Lynne implemented here at TTD has really helped keep up with that (the instant posts on "Live Topic"s).

Yes, get rid of tags in "where we go to play" or at least have a way to show who is posting them to prevent anon trolling. They ate useful for looking up "NFL" or something that pertains to the subject, but otherwise they are just used for trolling.

Indeed. The lounge isn't for the guy who just shows up to get the latest Justin Beiber show....

you got me... I thought we might have actually had a Bieber show here on the tracker, for a minute. Luckily, I can only find an ISO thread, so we are, at least, getting something right

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

i think the real answer here is to ban bill_kate...or at least not allow his input into anything associated with the Lounge area.

Too many assholes, trolls and aliases that are allowed to basically do what they want. Never been a big fan of the (mostly) hands-off style of moderation.

Now, take my post and opinions with a huge grain of salt, since there's a 99% chance I would never post in the lounge anyway. Just decided to post since you and some others were hoping to see some opinions from someone that doesn't post there.

would you speak more about why you'd not post in the Lounge, no matter how it was run?

Ding, ding, ding.....we have a winner!!!

Changing or tweaking a few rules isn't going to bring more people to the Lounge. Believe it or not, some folks just come here for the music!!!

Thanks for the perfect example.

I only posted what I did because some people were wanting opinions from outsiders (my word) as to why they didn't post in the lounge.

Edit: Why change your post to take the "troll" part of it out?
