Default MusicBanter's 2nd Annual 'Get Rid Of Some Tedious Chain Threads' Thread

There is far too many stupid chain threads clogging up this place so it's now time for a clean up.

This isn't so much a vote, it's more of a discussion to decide which are the worst offenders and how many should be got rid of.

Away you go...........

What do you mean by a chain thread?

Those rate threads
Those band vs band threads
What fart are you currently listening to.

Those sort

Basically any thread where people can post about 100 replies in an hour without using one brain cell.

They're all somewhat pointless, but the rate the perso nabove you's location is by far the worst.

I think we can throw them all into an unmoderated forum, like the games forum. Like you said they don't take any brain power so why waste any editing and moderating them.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

Rate the person above you's avatar
Rate the person above you's username
Rate the person above you's location
Rate the person above you's join date
Rate the person above you's post count
Rate the person above you's mom

It is just getting out of hand, though... I will admit I have fiddled around in them.

edit: ah I see Fa Sho has beaten me to it.

Personally I don't have a problem with the actual thread but the people constantly posting in them. For example if you(UH) loved answering them and rating everything you could get your paws on I wouldn't mind considering you post quite often in the music forums. But the majority of people creating and using those threads contribute jack squat to the music forums.
It could be ignored, but I would like seeing this site brought back to its music discussions. With the many new members in early to mid 2009 attention has been gravitating more towards lounge activity.

edit: And one more thing. For all you newbies out there who I CONSTANTLY see degrading other members and even newer newbies, please stop and remember this. Until you have contributed something worthwhile to this forum (compilations, reviews, your work, etc) keep your mouth shut. You may disagree but the only people who should be giving anyone a hard time for something is members such as Captin Caveman, who as much as I may dislike, actually contributes to the forum.

Someone should start a Rate the Person Above You thread. Spice things up a bit.

Seriously, I don't really have a problem with any threads. I second what Janszoon says - just leave them tucked away in the games forum to wear themselves out.
