There's a centuries old saying, going back to pre-Roman times, which states: Do not mess up the internet forum because a few users are complaining.

My corollary: if you ask 100 users how to improve the forum, you'll wind up with 150 detailed plans, all mutually incompatible.

Merge the smaller sections in Off-Topic so they take up take less space, put them at the bottom.

I do think it would be easier to slowly tweak the board into some sort of format like that than having the board split into two boards. (but I also know the Wizard would hope the DT site would work as is)

"easier" well "better" maybe. Don't know if it's easy.

C'mon Mission, deputize me and we'll clean up this forum. :)



LOL

I have no authority to do that!

This thread really had very little to do with users complaning when it was started and very much to do with "the boss" saying that the type of thread I pulled his comment from belonged somewhere else...and how to make that happen if he really wants it to happen. Nothing wrong with tossing a whole bunch of ideas out and letting the powers that be do whast they'd like...it isn't like we have to have a consensus of any kind, so 150 different plans are fine.

In my opinion, your gloating thread should have been dead on arrival not because of your gender, sexual orientation, stance on gay marriage, or your happiness at the results of the SCOTUS decision. Nope...it would have been dead because you made the only choice that did not fit your opinion an unsavory one. You are smart enough to know, but likely not person enough to admit, that there are people who oppose gay marriage that are overall in favor of the gay agenda yet opposed to gay marriage.

For now, it is still my preference that posts about the most controversial topics in the areas of politics, religion, and sexuality be placed in DT.



Look, if you don't want off topic and/or controversial posts and threads, say so. Stating your preference will do nothing to stop such posts.

Also, well, at the risk of incurring your wrath, there's not much point to DT. If I wanted to post something less than ten people will read, I'd post it to my cooking blog.

Or how's this:

Merge the baords, and set an option to ignore the non-gambling, non-Vegas areas. It's amazing how many people complaining about off-topic threads actually post in those threads.

Why in the name of the Wizard of Odds can someone send a PM have a choice to not accept PMs?

I'm calling on that person to either accept PMs or stop sending them.

The childish little things this member does to bully people are pretty annoying!!

I... WoV isn't even a large board, it doesn't need fragmenting

It's not large enough ... yet. And if we're going to grow, we need to look like a gambling forum.

Is it me or does anyone else think that these statements are contradictory?
