    New Section to AO

    I apoligize in advance if this has already been suggested and turned down.

    With the recent things going on with the mods vs. users. I was thinking of a way to help remedy the situation. For starters, this is not meant to start another uproar of complaints.
    One of the bigger issues I have noticed was the fact that threads being closed that lacked intelligence or they did not pose a question that could not be well discussed.
    My idea was along the lines of a "Junk" area. I know the main issue would be new users posting pure trash to raise their post count. That is why it could made like the "Introductions" area where posts in that section do not affect overall post count. Also either make credit earnings very low, or no credit earning at all.

    The main point of the section would be to settle the big mod vs user dispute. By making an area for user threads to go that were not deemed wothy enough for the Cyber Lounge.

    Like I said before. I am sorry if this has already been suggested before. If it has just close the thread right away, no complaints here.

    it has been talked about before infact it was tried
    in 2006 when i first joined and it took away from
    the poems , debate and discuss and the anime section.

    we had clan that were supposedto help as well
    and it did work for a while then it went down hill
    then it was gotten rid of because of lackof intrest.

    junk posting prettymuch got squished last year with the
    no junk posting rule i think if it was brung back though the other sections
    would go down like they did in 2006,.

    I see, I apologize. I was not around at that time. In fact I came as the clans were announced to close. Still am not quite sure the purpose of them, but understanding more little by little.
    Thanks for the heads up though.

    no problem and the clans were a good thing but
    because of inatrivity they were closed alot of
    people wished they would have stayd but the reason'was understandable.

    but this is just one point of view but thats the reason i see
    for the new section for not being made but ike i siad its not up tome to say
    either way but it wouldnt be a good idea at this time.

    A section dedicated to spamming would take away from the other areas of the forum; as Holder mentioned it has happened in the past and will undoubtedly happen again. When I joined this site in mid-2006, I popped in a couple of times and didn't post much for about three months, nearly every thread was pages on pages of a couple of people having side conversations and nearly nothing to do with the original thread topic. It was really frustrating to see a great thread started and not be able to participate because the topic had been completely lost.

    I don't think making a decent thread is that difficult, almost anything is allowable if it's within the rules and can prompt discussion and good responses. Why don't we leave this open a bit and see why it is that some members are having trouble starting good threads?

    i likr that idea and i can start by saying becausein the middle
    of a good thread you have somone saying powwww in big words
    that have noithing to do with the topic ,or someone talking about
    things in a list formation which has everyone else doing it.

    then the topic gos way off when they stop discussing the
    thread and lsiting things on why the thread topic is cool,bad or
    what ever never going back to talking about the topic and bring
    a really good discusion about it. but this is just one thing i see
    I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and all your demons

    I assume all was answered and delt with. Good job guys.

    I will close this early so we dont see this textbook example of how things should be settled here in the feedback form turn sour.
