a few suggestions...

Post by twaz » 15 Jul 2003, 20:12

ok, here's a few suggestions, that i feel would make my own personal snailofsatan experience more enjoyable.


number 1 - add a 'gash' forum.

this way, the general chat board could be freed up for chat. "who's going to the waterside tonight?" and "what did you think of salvage?" sort of thing.

i love the way that on the serious board, you get people with serious threads, and the responses they get are all serious. i'd like to see this kind of thing spread across onto all the boards, but it seems that a lot of people enjoy being a bit zaney - which is fair enough. things like "look at this funny website - " www . big smelly poo . com or whatever.

but yeh - then there'd be a serious forum for serious stuff. a general chat forum for general chat. and a silly forum for down right silliness.


number 2 - deleting SPAM

it says that spam messaging will be deleted without warning. id be very happy to see this enforced.

i agree with twaz on a few things but matt s two cents is:

1) if a "gash" forum was brought in i'm sure it wud confuse loads of people and so the threads like look at http://www.bigsmellypoo.com wud still end up in general.

2) i reckon if a gash forum was brought it, it wud be abuse. eg people wud just go "cluck cluck gibber gibber my old man's a mushroom" etc. there wont even be anything constructive in there, i mean at all!

3) deleting of spam! OH GOD YES PLEASE thats something i wud love to see enforced too. also, warning people against having long drawn out convos about a funny incident that happens yonks ago and that no one else finds funny, eg: Oh wasnt it funny wen i feel into sum poo" NO IT WASNT! :shake:
these things can be washed in msn surely!

anything which like a conversation between 2 people, who is considered to be unnecessary, excessive posting.

what if its a thread that is of interest to you, but its been completely overrun by shit, and has gone completely off topic and had 300 posts added to it in the space of a day?

what about threads like that just tell jokes. i don't think they should be bothered with cos people just put little laughing smilies, which is boring and must waste a bit of space!?
