Recently many threads have been moved, and i'm wondering about something.
I PM'd jetje about it, and he suggested to make a new thread with the PM in it to notify everyone about what is happening.
Thoughts? Questions? Information? Criticism?
What i wrote to jetje:
Ok, I was wondering, why are threads moved if others fuck it up?
Say a thread is started as a tip, and it is put in the tip section. Then others start talking about snowboarding. Why would it be moved to the lounge?
Then others wouldn't be able to find the tip, unless they knew to look in the lounge.**
I think that the threads should just stay where they are. Its kind of pointless to fill up the lounge with threads originally in different sections.
I look forward to your response.
what jetje wrote back to me:
All mods do it differently... think you have a point! Sometimes í just delete the useless info in those threads. People start complaining then, we delete their posts. Sometimes ask to go back on topic, they say they do but in no time topics get spammed again, then we move topics to the lounge. Also there are a lot misplaced threads, people not seem to read and think were they post. Back to the mods, we have to read all judge what to do and when, think sometimes it's more easy to move a topic that is spammed to hell then to clean those topics. A lot topics get screwed just because of postcount, i think that is an evil genius in this all. Really hate that to but if we don't stand up by moving those we kinda allow to spam for the count. Personally i think things will be better if we lose postcount and stars. But that will probably start a riot in here...
But in general you are totally right imo. It is to bad so many good questions end up in the lounge.
I love the question. I would love it if you make this a post in about our website and forum.
You may post this pm (and my reply on it) in there if you like.
Think it's a good idea to discuss the post"count"hunting and the spamming of nice topics with all.
