i haven't really been posting a lot lately because i have been super busy with school so i don't know to the full extent of how bad these people are.
if anything, instead of ragging on them for posting useless crap, we need to encourage them to post more useful stuff. when most people move into a new community, they just want to fit in at whatever cost. same thing with a forum. it is really hard to get into the main circle of the group of regular posters.
so maybe instead of ripping them a new hole to shoot things out of, we can be more kind to them and suggest use of the search function instead of the create new topic function. you could do this by a PM to them, or just quote there message in the new topic they made and remind them to do it the right way. if they don't listen, ban/suspend them. thats pretty simple.
and remember: we want more people to post and share their opinions. as long as it is useful.
I agree...but what is useful to some, may not be useful to others...we all need to understand that as long as it is not BLATENTLY offensive, we just need to let it roll off of our backs and move on to the next thread.
That's my question...will thread ratings help?
People can leave a rating on a thread....and will that be enough to have people not look at the the stupid ones....
Or will that also lead to gang mentality.
I like it myself, thread ratings.
I use them at other places all the time to decide where to invest my time.
I could do top ten vikings talk, top ten clubhouse too.
gregair, how would that fit your scenarion, thread rankings>
