okey....now the big question...is....should we make a poll about it...i'll be the first to vote
let's do it ..i'll cheat by voting many times if it must to


I'd prefer not unless one of the moderators made the ironic poll. Otherwise it would be just spam / duplicate / etc


now i was ironic or sarcastic..or ironic...hmmm sarcastic...
just choose one

Oh I see... Silly me then :(

But lets return to the topic at hand! \o

Maybe we could get an input by any of the moderators, or are they required to stay neutral in cases like this?

Make a POLL section. It's annoying to see polls scattered everywhere, ecspecially the pointless ones.
And yes delete the pointless ones. How about, an instant BAN for every pointless poll? For a week or 2.

And nah not 1500 points to make polls. How about 3000? Actually theres no point; douches gain points by purposely talking on guestbooks too much.

donno..but if we make a poll about it and then report the results to the mods(but i suppose they'll see it before we do )..maybe we have a chance
and then again we can just ask them what we can do aboyt this matter...really donno

A valid point indeed, having a poll section might actually be quite a good idea. Sounds a wee bit harsh with a week or two, maybe banned for, say two hours or so. That might actually be enough, and if that *warning* doesn't work, a whole day. And so on, till you get simply banned for ever :P


And yeah, I see tons of people who lots of points, and most of them are thanks to the guest book.

umm....5000 CR Point poll limit?


That could actually be a good idea, as most of the posters of the locked polls have below 5000 CR points.

The difference between polls and VS thread is..

VS threads = to see what's best

Polls = what people prefer

I think you can roughly sum it up like that


It would only cause spamming on the forums... We used to have a 100 point limit to get into the chats... the amount of spam increased EXPONENTIALLY...

They don't just spam the forums, they spam the video comments, people's GB's... you name it... they spammed it.

If you make polls at 5000 points... there'd just be that much more spam.

If you make it only the mods can post polls... that would be MUCH better

You make a highly valid point there, which leads us to my original suggestion, and comparison with the World of Warcraft forums.

Interesting suggestion, and how would this actually work? Would there be a message where you say "Yay" or "Nay" to or...?

Maybe I should keep a track on how many that wants a poll section and/or only moderators can make polls on my first post?

At first, the polls didn't seem like a dumb idea. It could help making interesting surveys and discussions based the alternatives the original poster gave.

But then the poll spree came. Poll after poll with the same shallow content came one after another. "Wat anime do u like the best?" with alternatives like naruto, bleach, one piece and so on. "What fruit do you like the best?"...


There's nothing wrong with polls, but I'm beginning to feel that there should be a requirement for making polls. Thanks to the allowance of real polls VS and naruto/[insert overrated anime] have begun flooding the forum. I might be wrong on this point, but has the amount of duplicates increased since we got the polls?

Seriously >_<

Also, I feel that when you're making a topic/poll, there should be a warning or something that would say the following:

"Warning, have you checked if there already is a topic/poll that is similar to yours? If not, please do before making your own, after all making duplicate are against forum rules. Please check the rules quick before deciding to make your topic in case it might break the[/o rules [insert= URL to rules]

That's my honest feeling about the situation on this forum is now. I feel that something this silly is necessary in order to fight the oncoming flood of naruto/bleach threads, VS threads, duplicates and whatnot.


So I ask you, fellow CR members, what do you think of our situation? What is your suggestion on how we could make things better? Should there be a requirement on polls?
Maybe 1500 CR points for making polls?


Examples of pointless, meaningless, spam worthy, WTF worthy or just duplicate polls:


I fail to see how increasing the points necessary to make polls would remedy the stupidity problem. Plenty of idiots spam guestbooks to accumulate points or spam pms.

Imo the better way would be a warning system in which if a person breaks the rule a certain number of times they get permanently banned. The system would be a bar type and it would fill up quickly or slowly depending on the offenses and would slowly diminish over time.

PS: Break the rules as in pointless threads, duplicate threads, wrong section, etc.

That seems to be one of the solutions this thread is boiling down to.


Warning system / Only Moderators can make poll / A section for polls only

--

Your idea is a good one, but how would the warning system be filled up? What if someone just spammed report on a person? Or would it have to be looked at the moderator? And with that question we go over to another question, think of all the work the moderators would have to go through with the warning system then.

Just some thoughts

The warning system would probably be done by the moderators or the admins. If there are a lack of moderators they can always make more. It's not like the moderators are being paid (much anyway). I fail to see how it's more work than moving or locking threads repeatedly from the same number of retarded people instead of moving it then add a warning to possibly deter them from repeating the same idiotic mistake.
