What does my myspace have to do with this discussion and the state of GD forum? You don't kake any sense.


Back on topic.

Jeremy, can you change the 50 post count to be allowed in GD. Maybe with more new people in here , you could expand the forum and make it more interesting and level. I know they love to troll the noobs, but they will survive. Maybe a 10 or 20 post count will allow access to here? Just a thought.

There are so few people speaking for so many right now. So many users aren't on, participating in this discussion, and they need to, because their input would make a difference. I've been just sitting and watching this whole thing and tbh, it would suck to no longer have the pit. I'm on it all the time and even if I'm not posting I like to read the threads and analyze everything. I hope that there can be a way to fix it.

Yes, but if you do remove this forum, isn't this some sort of containment area for those who are a bit more renegade and risque. These posters will just spread out into other forums making things more difficult to moderate.
Maybe you might consider an entire 360, and allow anything goes, and have the 3 mods just delete and close whatever is not appropriate. A free-for-all if you will, no restrictions, no guidelines, no bans, then the populous will grow tired and weary and might bring some much need self-control to themselves. A risky experiment, but it would be interesting nevertheless.

The pit is always going to be full of retards I'm afraid, but it always was and it was still good at some times. The biggest problem is that all the funny/good posters have left or stopped posting for the most part. And of course you have attention whores like Chad, but hasn't this stuff happened before? He'll eventually stop if you don't give him attention anyway.

In any case if you're offended by having people post stupid things on your forum, then yeah, close the pit. It's up to you...but it won't necessarily stay bad. Mods can help, but it's more about what users post in it.

Jeremy, please don't let the one off-topic argument determine anything. Especially since...

Only what, 10 users are having any say right now?

I suppose, but it doesn't seem likely to me.

I agree, I think it should be reduced. Maybe not so low as 10, but 25? At least for a probationary period.

If the pit gets deleted, I won't come back to MX. I haven't posted anywhere BUT the pit for literally years. And I know there are plenty others like me.
And if, for whatever reason (though I consider it unlikely), you decide to take that advice ^, we will need more than 3 mods. Just saying.

Let me do the thinking for you:

- Removing GD will only transpose the problem to other parts of this site.

- Any form of limitation or "punishment" will only make matters worse.

- Most people here are idiots so don't take their advice on anything (lol @ nath's post)

How about you discuss things with Chad and come up with some sort of agreement? That's the only thing that would actually work, tbh.

Getting rid of a choice few members would be ideal. In the past if people caused trouble they'd just find better things to do and leave or quit their hijinks. There's no real difference between now and the last time GD was closed down. People demanded stuff, it was refused, site was brought down, people argued, and its the same old stuff over again.

New mods wont fix this cause they'll be strict with the rules and then they'll be hassled and flamed for it. Getting rid of post count wont do anything and neither will resizing avatars or anything like that.

Find a way to stop the crashing of the site and get rid of the users responsible.

every few months theres some big announcement about stricter moderating and new policies or something with but they only get enforced for about a week. nobody gets banned anymore. in this very thread theres retarded spamming and flaming going on and they havent even been shut up. honestly with the state of things right now it should be pretty common to scroll through a thread and see 2-3 banned users. where are the nazi mods

There's no need for him to discuss anything with Chad, that'll only encourage him.

Well in that case we just need mods who don't care if they get flamed for enforcing rules.

And yeah, if there's a way to just get rid of Chad completely then that would be awesome, but apparently it's easier said than done.

the problem is that the general, usual chit chat that MX would like to see on the forum has been rendered obsolete by a select population of posters that have spent a lot of time posting on mx and are keen on the evolution of its entertainment, theyve got to push it to further and further limits to get the "lulz or lolz or rofls" and entertainment they crave for, which leads to heightened depravity and many users to be left in the forum dust

the only solution: close the pit, people will set up another forum elsewhere were they can circlejerk eachother

Aarggh.

I wish there was some way to stop this... I don't want this site to become another TC

Same ol, yeah?

I think one way to fix this (I'm not even sure if its possible) Is to make sure that all of the mxers are really here for something else. People who are posting legit content in the guitar forum usually aren't spamming the pit, etc. I suppose it could backfire and you'd just get a bunch of people distributing the spam to other forums just so they could spam the pit...

But even then it'd be easier on the mods. I understand the mods lack of action in the pit. It's hard to define crossing the line in a forum like the pit; but in the guitar forum if someone is like i eat cheese lolz it will just be ban and done. I think this makes sense.

I've never ran a forum like this before, so I don't even know if this sort of thing is possible, but I think you know what I'm trying to say at least.

It's better than ignoring him and his demands completely, which I'm sure encourages him even more.

However I think Jeremy might have tried discussing things with Chad in the past, so whether or not he wants to go down that route again I don't know.

First thing's first: take it easy on Jay. I'm fed up with going into every thread and seeing half of it dedicated to trolling and/or flaming him in some way.

I always do what I can here, but unfortunately I can't be online all day. I'm not using this as an excuse, but if people used the report problems thread more, then it would make the job easier. The same applies with the racism thing. I said I'd clear it up and I haven't seen a whole lot.

I agree Wish, I was just thinking outloud. I have no problem with people making fun of me and teasing if it were just only kidding, but when the flaming becomes so obsessive with every post I make, someone jumps in to call me fat or old lol, News flash, I know I'm fat & old, as well many of you will be someday. I try to respect everyone. I am never the first to instigate trolling. When I defend myself or fight back, they just push harder, so I have taken your advice and ignored and will try to rise above all the trolling.

Chad is not really that much of a threat to the site's stability in fact...he might make it crash once in a while but he loves posting on it too much to leave it down for long or anything

If you had a real general forum where post count was enable and where the rules apply as strictly as it does in other serious forums, then you wouldn't hear a peep from every loser on here that cries about **** 24/7 (Sexymuffin, Light Fantastic, SoulSeeker, um.. PerpetualBurn, etc, etc), then set another forum for pure bitchin and lustful anal loving (disable posts) and let these virgins run wild with passion in there.
