Hahah you guys are looking way too much in the cursing thing. What I really meant was a situation like metro and trillion when they were using racial slurs and stuff like that. Agian I'm not here to be perfect just a simple suggestion, if its not welcome its not a big deal I'm not loosing any sleep.
Every one is over reacting
this forum is awesome
always has been
if some one wants to duplicate an appreciation thread, then let them do it,
if some one curses as long as it is not demonstrative let them do it
if some one attacks a poster; then I would have to assume the initial poster said something dumb and worth being attacked lol
grown man stuff here
stop with the sorority nonsense
and post away
The thing I love the most about our team, is we don't ever seem afraid
I have been a member of numerous forums the fighting / cursing is light considering the trash people put on here. I myself have been going back and forth with that moron Shizzee for the past two weeks which I would not normally do.
I am like you Cool only login while I am at work and it does get old seeing 15 threads with the same topic. I liken this to people wanting to feel more important or as if they are breaking news. If you take the time to scroll down and read prior to making a thread this can be corrected. However without an active moderator there is no way to actually police it. After being here for some time I just come to understand that this is the way it is going to be lol.
Back to work I go
Then F U C K 'Asstoni...and
F U C K LeBitch while we at it!
@ClydeFacts "When one of his ladys asked clyde why he doesnt text he said if you dont get the message by now a phone aint gonna help." Except for Kate. Wobble Wobble!
Really I think some of the old time members should be Mods people like Kiyaman,Cray8s,Metrocard to help Rady clean up the forum
We should also put a post cap before you can make a thread because its mostly new members making trade ideas
Do we have much in the way of mods on the forum? There's a lot of threads that can simply be merged, others that can straight up be closed.
You're right there's too many threads about the same thing that pop up. Some I've seen are people that don't want their point to be missed so they make a new thread. That's not a good reason to start a thread. A general rule should be if there's the same thread on the first page of the new posts search, it doesn't need another thread.

Exactly totally agree. Thats why I made this thread. I dont post often as Crazy8 seemed like he had to point out after I mentioned I do more reading than posting. I have been on here for 2 years and only posted about a 100 times but I login everday. I don't post because I don't want to repeat people and waste peoples time in reading.
Im not trying to govern the site, I was just making some simple suggestions to make it better and effiecient. From all the responses I know I am not alone on the issues of duplicate threads, dumb trade threads and just ridicoulous posts.
I agree that a big problem of the forum is the hundreds of duplicated threads. But as long as everybody keeps adding in each of them there's nothing much i can do about it. Mods wouldn't be a better option, as the rules should be adopted by users not imposed. So what can you do if you think a thread has been duplicated and there's no obvious need for another?
You can either NOT add to it, or you can simply reply with a link to the original topic. Chances of me seeing it are pretty good (although a notify will also help), so i'll either lock it or merge it with the other one.
The cussing problem is pretty much the same. If i'd act like the soup nazi i'd be barking at everybody 24/7 so i decided to let people deal with it on their own, like grownups. However, if the flame crosses the line there are two buttons you can use. Those would be the ignore and the report post. The first one would block the entire activity of the selected user and you won't have to deal with him again (a very smart button i'd say). The other one would notify me about it and i'll probably take actions. But I'd only use the report post feature if i'm ready to be warned as well.
That said, there are two topics i'd like to bring to your attention:
1. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (apparently there's been a confusion and everybody's posting trade ideas in there instead of just answering the question/voting the poll)
2. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]?
