    Urgent

    dumping all the threads that go awry in other areas of the forum in here

    I know this is the off topic/anything goes place but it's not meant to be a place to dump all the crap(we have enough of our own ). There are a few people who dwell in here and don't go to other areas of the board. Doesn't seem right we should get everybody elses crap. Surely if a thread loses it's focus you could just close it or suchlike and not dump it in here. e.g some guy looking for porn, or game threads of late. If i was interested in reading them i would go to the appropriate part of the forum. These are just my feelings dunno if it bothers anyone else? I know it doesn't happen a lot but it does happen. I could have posted this in the 'everything about this forum' but as it was about here figured i would put it here.

    I agree entirely.

    A section called 'Spam' should be created where these threads which don't fit in anywhere else could reside. That way a thread isn't deleted nor is it dumped upon a section that simply doesn't want it.

    If you are complaining about the actions of a Mod, you should PM Him/Her. I dont want any excuses about the fact that you do not know what Mod is doing what. Just PM them all.


    p.s. I'll be back after moderation.

    A section called "the hall of shame" or something would be cool.

    Spider_dude (I think it was spd, anyway) had something similar on his forum, which showed you what not to do.

    It would take up too much memory on this Forum.

    Not if they were going to dump them in the lounge, anyway.

    We should be able to send 'block' messages to all Admin/Mods. That would eventually stop persistent offences. I also think we should avoid the word 'dumping' and replace it with 'reallocating' or something similar.
