gloom: that is totally inefficient... in so far as the threads you are judging useless or offensive are the ones that usually get a lot of replies.

a good soluce imho would be to separate technical topics from daily traffic so that they are kept clean and on sight.

so how do you know if there is a new thread worth your attention if they are initially hidden?

don't forget you can self-ban anyone by configuring a css in your brower directory, as explained in another thread.

Maybe barti's ban was justified because he was caught in a vicious relation with pouet-posting, and this practice didn't help him, but Zest is just the irritating guy who always want to have the last word. Now this prize idea will generate more flamme and desillusions than anything.

And nextempire is an easy lolcow.

What a deep analysis, congratulations on spending two seconds on that post. Did it ever occur to you that the threads that get a lot of replies (or, should I say: "responses") do this because they are the ones that are visible? ..and that recently started bullshit-threads are visible. Should I continue connecting the dots for you or is it safe to leave you here?

Having a delay on new threads showing up on the frontpage is a sensible way to limit their visibility, but still leaving them on the BBS to be read by people who actually want to reply to them.

The way the front-page is set up now contributes to a self-replicating spiral of crap. Mostly.

No, not hidden, just not on the frontpage. Put it in the BBS (behind the "BBS"-link), in a new table or something.

Can't agree more, it's like a giant attention-whore magnet ;)

how about just marking threads as "trolling" and hence not appearing on the front page?
added on the 2008-12-17 21:14:10 by Gargaj Gargaj
Gargaj: wouldn't that leave a time-gap for the trolls to get their attention-fill? I mean, it's not like the moderators here are online all the time.. also; that involves manual work, and I'd rather just see something automated.

Zest always writes big and interesting texts. Do not ban.

gloom: your system would totally castrate the reactivity of the current bbs and then make it... sluggish and boring. Efficient way to put a community to sleep!

also thanks keops for reproaching me for having posted a few (not so) "random pics in the middle of interesting discussions"... oh the irony!

and i don't post any goatse as far as i'm concerned.

i'd take that risk.

No, it would give less spotlight to attentionwhores like you. People really interested in various topics would still participate, even if their name and topic name does not appear on the front page as soon as they post their crap.
added on the 2008-12-17 21:27:33 by keops keops
and would you tag this original thread as "trolling" ? seriously ?

this is a serious not-serious thread.
added on the 2008-12-17 21:27:48 by Zest Zest
keops: okay so now the accusation charge you are throwing to me is attentionwhoreness ?

seriously, get your facts right beyond all your prejudice! i don't promote any of my releases (and not for the very reason you are thinking of), i hardly give any personal detail of my real life (except in the contained french thread), i talk only about demos and cousin themes like computer science or video games, and i don't particularly want to attract your attention as i don't know you personally (except a few frenchies and party animals i've met in parties).

i just want to talk and think together about my very hobbies! that's something you usually can't do with your relatives, gf, boss, coworkers, postman, dog... and i think that's the very purpose of such a bbs, d'oh!

to my eyes keops you are far more attention-whore than myself with your in-you-face demos and daily participation around, and of course that's not a reproach, that's the oldschool leetness we all like!

the more i talk or fight :( with some of you, the more i get the feeling that albeit supersmart you are, your heart you need to open. It's not always about the force, it's also about tolerance and fun.
added on the 2008-12-17 21:46:31 by Zest Zest
Quite funny, reading this thread from the start shows that gargaj, gloom and keops are the ones talking of topic :D

The topic is scene related. Nothing wrong with idea of a scene equivalent of the razzies.
*off topic
I think it's about time to start posting random images! Let me begin:
