Hey Superpeer, why not sticky the Forced Listening thread you made? I'm sure it will always be in use, and that way it will be conveniently reachable.

I've always been of the opinion that Forced Listening threads should be left free, as they survive on their own pretty well (and if they don't, then there's no point them being there anyway). That way, it's usually only people who are really interested in the thread who use it, rather than just anyone (who tend to do poor reviews).

I agree. No need for it to be stickied.



SFK and Superpeer: If it isn't too much of a problem, could you guys sticky this? :-/ I know there is already four stickies...but I only want this up there until the Friday after this upcoming one. It doesn't survive on it's own, because I've already had to bump it a few times. So if it isn't a problem, please sticky it. :)

Per Ardua Ad Astra
07-28-2004, 08:42 PM
That's true, but most of the people who look for the sticky threads now what they are doing because it's a competition or something like that so they know where it is and need to get there anyway.
With the exception of the genres of metal thread, i think most of the stickies can be organized into one thread.

Mekkalayakay
07-28-2004, 08:55 PM
:-/ I'm being a bit selfish here, but that would be a bit hard with my Defend a Band comp. going on. Since I just made it yesterday, a lot of the people in it don't know about it, and if it doesn't stay stickied where it's in clear sight on the first page, the whole rest of the competition will fail, because people won't know about it, nor will they be able to enter.

But like I said, that's my problem, not your guys'. I should be responsible for it.

Per Ardua Ad Astra
07-28-2004, 08:59 PM

I don't know about Superpeer, I guess we will discuss this, but I don't really plan on having very many sticky threads on the front page. This is such an active forum that we need to keep it clear. I don't particularly like the idea about putting all the stickies in one thread. I think the rules should be EXTREMELY visible so people will have no excuse to read them.

I don't like the idea of a lot of stickies either. I'll leave Mekka's competition up, because it's only temporary.

Thats a good idea Super, that should cut down on alot of this stuff in theory. I hate it that its going to come to us having to temp. ban alot of new people because they will not take the 5 minutes to read the rules. But in all fairness it isnt fair for the established veteran members here to have to constantly see us gripe at the new people about not reading the rules either. Its a double edged sword.

It would be cool if we could program a way to not allow people with less than 20 posts to post in here unless they had read the rules. Kind of like a software agreement, it won't let you into the software until you agree to thier distribution policies.

Apparently there is an official Led Zepellin thread. I'm wondering if you mods are going to let this stay or not.

manuscriptreplica
07-29-2004, 08:53 PM
Could you possibly make it so the rules thread is always the top thread? I never really notice it (and didn't notice STK's new rules) because it's always at the bottom of the stickied threads, and is never in bold (because it rarely gets added to). And do something to it (if you can, that is) to make it more obvious... like always in bold, different colour etc..
And if you have a problem with the amount of stickied threads, I think you should get rid of the Recommended Metal Websites also. I mean, all people are doing in that thread is giving their own bands' website, or giving various bands' official sites. I mean, is it that hard to type 'Black Sabbath' into Yahoo or something?

alright, well thanks, but it's not your favorite 5 songs. that would be retarded and unoriginal, i agree. but threads about choosing 5 particular songs that personally put you in a certain mood is hardly the same thing. for instance, one of my favorite songs is cake's the distance, but that doesn't pump me up, so i wouldnt list it in this thread. i also made it more original by limiting the people to one song per band, and limiting the people to 5 songs to prevent logn lists of whatever came to mind.

Well this is more toward the Administrators I suppose. I have an idea that may help in decreasing the number of outlawed threads and posts. If it's possible to make a direct link from when you log in for the first time that takes you to the rules, or a new typed rules page/memo it may help in forcing new posters to read the rules, or at least eliminating the excuses such as, "I didn't know where it was". I don't know if this idea has been put foward before. I just thought I might put my two cents in.

Great idea, this has actually been discussed. The problem is that each forum inside of MX has different rules. The rules in Rock and Metal are much more stringent than the rules found in Drums and Percussion for example. It is all based on traffic. Rock and Metal and The Pit are the 2 busiest forums on MX. The Pit is pretty much anything within reason goes, R&M is supposed to be about Rock and Metal. With all the members, like yourself, helping myself and Superpeer out we will get this under control pretty quick tho, we are already seeing an improvement.

Is there anyway to have a whole new page that has the general rules of the site on it for the link? More or less the rules that all the forums have in common. Then new posters can at least have some sort of idea of what is right an wrong here. You could also possibly, though it would take more time and be rather large, post a synaptious of the rules for each of the forums. Having a heading with the forum title then under that the synaptious and so on with all the forums.

Suggestion for the mods: This is very bad, time-wasting, and probably out of date. (in other words, it's how a regular user like me would solve a problem)

But an idea of mine (I do it often) to keep a thread on the top is to constantly copy and paste the last thing you said, re-post it, and delete the original. This is my idea of how to keep the rules on top. I do it often in Forced Listening to bump the thread. As I said, this wastes time, but it's the only thing I can think of. My idea is very old-school, and not an extremely advanced way of doing this, but hey, it's just an idea, bad or not. :)

Yes, there are too many official threads but there is nothing that the mods can really do about it, except close the thread. Not to mention, with the addition of the 'Official Slipknot' and 'Official Tool' threads (baptized by SFK) you need to expect to see more of them because people who don't read the rules will think they are allowed to make an Official thread about there favorite artist.

Yes, but as you can see, people still make Metallica threads even though there is an official Metallica thread, when newbs come here they are determined to make a thread on their favorite band, even if there is already a thread about that band.
With all these official threads floating around, people think that they entitled to make their own 'official' thread and this is why i am also not keen of the official threads.

You become a mod, when MX (the admin of the site) appoints you because a certain forum needs help being run. You usually get to be a mod by being intelligent, and thinks like that. Yes, the Huge avatar is a perk of a moderator.
Thanks man.

Just wondering...Cos I'm new. I've read the forum rules, and I was looking at some of the links people posted here in regards to those that break the rules. I can understand the advertising and the "best band ever" threads, but I don't understand what was wrong with some of them (besides bad grammar). For example, the Tool thread posted a bit above me.
Thanks. Meanwhile, I really like the site, of what I've seen in the few days I've been a member. :thumb:

Threads like the 'Best band ever' threads are closed because they are done way too often. If you'll notice, that a few times a week there is a 'best...' thread. It's very repetitive and dumb since they are always done. So they are closed.

I've wondered for a while about this. To prevent further threads on random nu-metal bands, could there just be an ****Official**** Nu-Metal Thread? There are so mnay nu-metal bands and they are so popular (with of course an equal share of haters) that it would get plenty of traffic. There is a nu-metal thread on the front page right now, something about "Is it all that bad?" which would make a great one.

The 'Official nu-metal thread' would get flamed to death, especially if it had the 'Official' tag on it.
