Random Hitler thread is that way >_>

and the random image thread should have a script only allowing picture posts. all posts containing text should be silently discarded... that would save a lot of our energy...

Joke of the day ;)
(actually i would petition to abolish the fucking bbs alltogether).

Hm, uhm...ok...let's try something wild:


Now, how 'bout THAT? Ain't that WILD and LIBERATING?
nitro: Oh, sorry, just smelled like nazis in here.

Show me a single message board that works better with moderation in place. There is none.

/. and SA.

The pouet forum has been a funky hellhole ever since the site became popular in 2002 or so. The mods/devs never cared. I wish we could at least vote for threads and bury all the copycat bs threads quickly.

@tomaes: agreed.

-/. is horrible. There is no real discussion, only many wise assess boasting with their half knowledge. And if you challange them with facts they cave in or start to nitpick.

-No idea about SA. But I thought that SAs best days are over. At least the website owner got beaten up by Uwe Boll.. :)

One thing about slashdot that bothers me is the horrible way of chopping up threads due to moderation. They need to get some proper CSS to allow for more dynmic content. What I have seen from digg does not look that bad. Although digg is horrible.

Pouët.net is the only place in the internet where you can find really lots of demos (introinferno and demozoo are not quite there yet) and as such it shouldn't have all this shit. But it's also known that the demoscene is for demosceners... I've forgot where I was going. Maybe something like: "Do you want moderation? Go to scene.org forums."

actually pouet is more democratic, equal and liberalistic than europe even if it's like christianshavn compared to whole denmark. and a non-moderated bbs is a fucking piece of this liberalism thing. so don't be a hitler and shut the fuck up. if you can't take the shit in bbs then just remove it from your view.

as for europe, declaring nazism as a crime is a bad bad behaviour if you're shouting your arse off something like : "we're fucking superior in equality and the freedom of thinking". shut up already, fucked up politicians...

No idea about SA

It's like a playful, condensed & bizarre version of usenet. I love it for the social porn and frequent photoshop hilarity. Ask/Tell can be a thrilling read too.

"Do you want moderation? Go to scene.org forums."

Those forums are dead. Also, not moderated.

"I like one part of Pouet so the other parts have to go"?

Before you start or reply to a topic within our noble oldskool pouët BBS you should be advised of the following characteristics:
1. The Pouët admins are in no way responsible, or willing to ever be, regarding their users behaviour.
2. Pouët is in fact not a valid representation of the real spirit of the scene. It never claimed to be.
If that's what you were looking for when reading our BBS topics, we strongly suggest you visit a demoparty instead.

The oldskool pouët BBS is mearly a forum for sceners, with obviously too much free time, to release their frustrations and advertise some scene information for salted communitary feedback, as opposed to polluting the prod comments section.

In fact, the oldskool pouët BBS is a snakepit ZOO full of deadly traps and flamebait chocolure for all sorts of careless sceners. So enter at your own risk, try not to feel easily insulted and remember: please don't feed the trolls.
If you're a newbie to the scene or a missplaced outcast scene legend about to make the mistake of attempting civilized conversation within our halls, please forgive our users for their careless idiocy, mindless absurd behaviour and extended internal jokes, try not to take things too seriously.

You have been warned.

for your information, demozoo got EVERYTHING that pouet has product-wise.

however, demozoo lacks something undescribable and thus becomes uninteresting.
It lacks the comments.

Few things.. [warning serious stuff coming up]

1. Moderation is HARD. The more active it becomes the less you get actually interesting stuff. Unless of course you like either endless stream of basic newbie stuff or total inactivity. Good moderation means that you respect the users and e.g. let them flame the hell out of you. Deleting/locking topics and continuously moving "offtopic" stuff around isn't respect. Idiots/spammers/etc people who have fucking obviously come to a wrong place should be gotten rid of asap, not tormented with various administrative tricks like short-time bans.
(another no-go is a slashdot-like system which is based on the broken idea that the "average opinion" makes any sense but I've joked about that before)

2. Pouet bbs is not (currently) a technical forum. If you want to make it one you need to make it not the casual crapfest it is which in turn involves destroying it. Of course one could circumwent the problem by making it a subforum but where's the sick despotic fun in that?

3. Pouetization has its place. It's an way to shut down a ridiculous flamefest or other retarded topic without moderator interference. Unlike with the latter option it's still possible to turn it back into something meaningful if the idea has wings after all. Too bad it's somewhat overused these days.

4. Trolls? Bah. Sceners are real people and the bullshit they generate is mostly genuine. If you want to pretend the forum is for sceners you have to live with it.

I think a troll infested web site is far better than having no communication at all.

And to be honest: There are not that many new demoscene relevant topics anyways. The BBS would be quite a slow place without all the off topic stuff. If that was cut off we just would have party announcements and people complaining about gfx-drivers.
