comments? suggestion box?

Do the inmates think this is a democracy?

Isn't that kind of handled just as well with the PM feature? I'll go on record saying that I've not had a single PM ignored.

My suggestion for a suggestion box was somewhat tongue in cheek. Anyone here can make a suggestion anytime they please. It may be convenient to have them in one place but it's not necessary.

I've made some good suggestions over the years, from doing away with the Suspension List to term limits and elections for administrators. I never got any feedback on those except from the "circle the wagons" crowd. :-)

It has now been more than a few threads where some person, first-time poster, asks some question and receives a deluge of sarcasm and abuse. In several case this has led to their reacting offended and be banned for insult or profanity. But are they the guilty?

It shocks me as in total contradiction with what you see on Mike's other site, WizardOfOdds, where he has the habit of answering very kindly to most requests -- even stupid ones, even sometime far removed from what the site was about.

Please consider that many people first visit the WoO site. They find a treasure trove of information, want to congratulate/thank Mike and/or ask him a question. Nowadays, they are redirected to this forum. So, it is totally normal and expected that they sometimes ask, uhh, 'improbable' questions. I would find it so much more nice if the (older) members had a bit more understanding and welcoming.

Maybe one should distinguish 'discussion' forums and 'question' forums?

Maybe a new rule should be written about the behaviour towards newbies, and a punishment for abusive sarcasm or meanness?



Nice, but hum-hum, laughable.

I am not commenting on the thread. I simply love this saying and how adequate for a description of some.

Is anyone going to welcome the new member with the five blogs or is that a bot? How can you tell a bot? Is it always obvious?

No, it's not always obvious.

This board needs fewer mods and more blade runners to detect the replicants.
