I'd like to take a minute to address a potentially disastrous problem here in the bar

    In my humble opinion, there are too many "hang out" threads... Cliques, if you may.

    This may not seem to be a problem in most of your eyes, but I in fact, see this as a problem in the not so distant future. Take into consideration, any "hangout" thread.. what happens when lets say 3 or 4 of the main contributors to said thread decide to leave , take a break or perhaps they find another place to post .. ala what happened when people came here from sfn.. well the herd will follow.

    It seems as if a few particular groups have just squatted here.. meaning.. took their group from site A to site B and just sit in their corner and do not socialize with anyone else around..

    My suggestion to fix this potentially harmful situation is very simple.. Threads have a shelf life.. 30 days.. 60 days.. 90 days.. or perhaps even a post limit per poster per thread.. it certainly would make posters maximize their posts, instead of just a :jj: or a :rolleye:. and also it would make posters branch out and socialize with the others in other threads as opposed just using the board to host their little group get together.. which in my humble opinion is wrong and disrespectful to the site owners.






    When this happens, which it eventually will.. dont say i didnt warn you. :hat:

    You need to learn how to use commas, Clutch.

    Now tell us more about you and Nerd. Did you two ever meet up?

    I don't see the point. The same people would just start new threads each day. This has already happened in some cases.

    I'm not in any of 'em, but what's the harm in a continuing meetup?

    People develop scared tendencies to post in other places, as you have stated before.

    My apologies if you took the first post to heart, it was not meant to address anyone specifically.. sorry if you took it that way.

    I have. But I don't see how your proposal would change that. As I said, cliques have no trouble making as many threads as necessary. More to the point, cliques are NOT necessarily bad. Only some are, often attributable to a few bad apples. I don't give a shit if people want to talk in private code. I only care when they're offensive or hostile to others.

    Like I stated, once one leaves, then two leave and so on.. we have seen this happen at sfn and i dont think it is healthy for a group to follow which you know for a fact is likely to happen. It makes posters way too dependent on other posters, which should not be the case.

    A perfect example of this is the "SB" posters.. where one goes, they all feel everyone should be allowed to go.. even if they banned/ not welcome.

    The gang/group mentality is bad for message boards and this is a proven fact.

    This is why the children today growing up are such pussies, being rewarded for participation , feeling uncomfortable outside of the group.. its the older posters who raised their children this way who have contributed greatly to this problem.
