On the flipside, speaking as a new member, I'm pretty alright with how free-flowing and inconsistent it is here. I've been on music forums before and they've been ****ty because mods have iron poles up their starfishes. Feels like I'm actually making friends and not stilted acquaintances.

and I'll just add that those 4-5 active members were all admins.

But I can call Frown a ****stick and not expect a warning PM or something, and I think that's pretty nice. Feels like I'm actually making friends and not stilted acquaintances.

I hope you and cassavetes stick around.

Throughout 2018 I've been the only shiny thing here.

I find it hilarious that some of the people here that call for a better modded place or general forum improvements are some of the people that are anti-semetic, intolerant to other beliefs, racist, are the first to attack personally or use family as a weapon, or are just so argumentative that nobody can get a word in edge-wise.

You want to improve the forum? Try improving yourself as a human being first.

Lol. how are these people supposed to bootstrap when they aint got boots? At least thats what theyll have you believe.

Starfish abuse is no laughing matter. I would've reported them.

Did someone disable their account or did they do that of their own accord?

He asked us. We obliged him. You can't deactivate your own account. I for one don't ever see why this is necessary. Just don't come here anymore. But whatevs.

grindy 10-23-2018 10:20 AM

I tried to persuade him otherwise, he seemed cool, but sadly to no avail.

Key 10-23-2018 10:33 AM

Sorry guys. I ****ed up and stirred **** again. My own dumb fault.

Ikr I don't see the reasoning behind that. It's like asking yourself to be executed when you could just take a hike.

Ewww stirring ****. Not a good visual.

The patented Fake Kiiii apology: apologize for showing everyone else to be wrong.

I'm the one who's wrong. Feel free to think it's fake. I can't control that.

Mindfulness 10-23-2018 03:34 PM

maybe create a +/- or what boxden uses Slap/Props

on each post, so this post and suggest for the forum could be given props or thumbs up or down by every member

like a voting system of up/down for each post

:cool:

OccultHawk 10-23-2018 03:41 PM

Or let’s not be Facebooky

MicShazam 10-23-2018 03:42 PM

I personally really don't see the point in upvote/downvote systems. Just a waste of attention and time. Plus it's always kinda unclear and iffy what the reasons for down votes are.

WWWP 10-23-2018 03:43 PM

Polls work fine for our purposes I think.

Frownland 10-23-2018 03:47 PM

I think we get by just fine but I wouldn't be against upvotes so long as our threads were still formatted chronologically.

MicShazam 10-23-2018 03:48 PM

I think it would be ****. Then people upvote each other for agreeing on things and downvote those who have the "wrong" opinion about music. Happens on every place that has them.

Church

Frownland 10-23-2018 03:56 PM

I can handle being downvoted.

MicShazam 10-23-2018 03:59 PM

So can I, but the reasons would annoy me.

I don't see what good it does, but it will promote echo an chamber climate, even if only a little.

Do I expect to get hit extra hard, given how much people always gripe about my opinions? Absolutely. I'm not denying that I feel like a downvote system would throw some negative vibes my way.

WWWP 10-23-2018 04:02 PM

I think we can count on nothing changing

MicShazam 10-23-2018 04:03 PM

I'm actually glad this thing is gonna stay frozen in it's current position.

The Batlord 10-23-2018 04:39 PM

Honestly a vote system would only mean anything to members vying for funniest member. So me, Frown, OH, and Mindfulness would all of a sudden be competing and/or trying not to seem like we're competing.

WWWP 10-23-2018 04:49 PM

More like frown, mindful, and ori

Mindfulness 10-23-2018 04:55 PM

after reading 66sexy's comment, i agree its a bad idea, n/m i dont want it also :o:

The Batlord 10-23-2018 05:22 PM

Oh yeah Ori def and Mondo. But don't gotta be a self-absorbed prick to recognize my greatness. Unless you're some chick snapping at our capes not saying any short-haired names.

I'm sorry you lost your play thing.

The Batlord 10-23-2018 07:50 PM

Hey. He was my plaything too. We all mourn.

OccultHawk 10-23-2018 08:01 PM

I miss doing my journals so much when I’m banned I have to watch it.
