What do you want to see here? Some more categories, forums, and mods? Hmm...

There was a day where..

Post by epsy »

..threads going off-topic would be split
..flame would be shut
..not every thread would turn into a flamewar
..people felt like posting their opinion freely
..there wasn't a new drama thread every week
..these forums were moderated

Tank, please exit the cavern of your exams, increase our current bus factor of 0 and save this forum from asphyxia.

Sincerely, epsy, and that's my last attempt at this.

Yes, these forums are not quite the same as the used to be when i started playing.
The forums used to be full of ideas and intuitive topics. Now they're full of drama and stupidity.

I totally agree as well. But, I think the best solution may be for tank to choose a couple of moderators. That way, even if tank is busy, somebody can moderate things.

I have been bad at this stuff lately. That and exams ended 5 weeks ago. You've all been suffering from Tank doing project 9 to 5 every day instead. Tank is bad at time management, which means he never quite got around to checking the forums.

And now you're all about to suffer from Tank goes to Ireland where he may not have internet access.


I'll try and sort out some moderatorships... might as well ask for volunteers, although I suspect that's a bad idea. Again.

Seeing as you're quite inactive, you doing it directly is sincerely a very, very, VERY bad idea. Please lay it on Z-Man who is active and also positively viewed by the whole community.

We enter a new era.

Hopefully, this image represents the direction we won't be going in. (But I had to make it once z-man mentioned it.)

We'll see if this stays that way.

I'm so tempted to edit that into 'WTF, they're just going to edit our posts to mess with us!'.

You've done exactly all the negative things you've pointed out. You were part of that trend in destroying these forums. Now you're suddenly going to stop people doing exactly what you've done? How does that work in your book? From past experience you've only just ****** up in the way you've handled things individually and ignored peoples requests and wishes.

From a no policy to allowing epsy to start telling people what to do here is the worse idea possible. It should be Z-Man, kyle and maybe Lucifer or dlh (if they want it)..
