Discussion in 'World News & Debates' started by Crysiz, Jul 17, 2009.
Your text doesn't look sarcastic to me.
He laid it on pretty thick, IMO.
Please only post in here if you actually have a suggestion, from now on every post differing with this rule will be subject to deletion.
Ok here's a suggestion, can we have a MOD approve new threads? It's tiring to see thread after thread of gay bashing or religion debates. This can deter people from posting topics in the news section, when they clearly belong in the debate section as well.
I don't like the idea because if we go off for a couple of days it will make things harder to start.
If it's about a news, it wouldn't be a news anymore 24 hours later
You can always report the threads you'd like moved to debate or merged together if they adress the same issue and I'll gladly proceed.
Things should run smoothly from now on, there isn't that big amount of threads per day in the subforum.
However if more people show enthusiasm toward your suggestion I might reconsider it.
I really like TwoHourMotel's suggestion. I feel that a lot of the threads created on this forum are more fit for Random Chat. If this was implemented, we'd see a decrease in gay bashing threads and one-liner threads.
1) Do you think the benefit would be higher than having a non-reactive thread creation system?
2) Do you think it is better than closing/moving the Random Chat threads?
1) That's a great question. It would be very irritating to have to wait for threads to be published, and it may take longer than I'd be happy with.
2) If that was done, then no, I think simply closing/moving the threads would be better. It seems that this subforum has been getting more attention lately (thank goodness!).
I'm here to provide a better experience, please report any unwanted thread in the future.
No premoderation pls. Just move/close/merge/whatever.
What do you call premoderation exactly?
I know how to report a post, but how do you report a thread? Or do you just need to report OP's post?
I just wanted to ask that I occasionally go through discussions but I don't necessarily have anything to add, so should I refrain from posting in WND?
report OP's post and precise why in the description, that should do.
A joke here and there isn't bad, a repeated smiley or a picture looks bad.
Heres another suggestion, would it be possible for the debate sub-forum to show like the last three threads updated or something instead of only one when you're on the main wn&d page? I can photoshop it if you don't understand what I mean.
TBH I don't think this forum is quite active enough to justify the debate subforum.
EDIT: Not possible.
While I agree with the low activity I do appreciate the classification between News and Debates.
If Debate forum has to go I will leave the ultimate decision to Crysiz as he's the one who started this subsection.
I was re-reading the debate rules and I noticed that bad grammar, punctuation and other things related are actually against the rules. Considering that a lot of people in PD don't have a good grammar for whatever reason they may have, shouldn't this rule be removed? Because it would be really awful to see someone getting a warning or infraction for having a bad English. Can you change it?
