yep, i noticed... this one is a bit lame to

if you want to do somthing about it i guess you should start with yourself ^_^;'


i know some good topics but my english is to bad to start a good threat T_T;

@killar:
that negative CR point would be a good id i think...
most of the people here do care about those pts ^_^;


Look, this is plain stupid. If you're confident enough in your english to post in a thread, you're confident enough to make one. You should start with yourself? I answered that below.

Make Eros judge, jury and executioner. I've suggested this before.

"I can't think of any counter measurements though"
1. don't respond to said threads
2. make good threads
3. ???
4. profit


Tsk tsk, don't chop my sentences up like that please. I said "I can't think of any counter measurements though, which wouldn't end up in stricter forum rules". The other one's are obvious.

1. I don't, except for "lame thread"
2. I can only make a thread when I feel like it (meaning I'll have to have a reason, serious or not)
3.I will
4.okay




Maybe I am just a noob... but i thought it DID cost CR points to start a forum, and therefore had nothing relevent, since i HADN't gone through all the threads yet, to post a new topic...
I agree with it costing points, (since i thought it did anyway - I'm still learning about this site)
I'm curious though, admitedly, i haven't seen all the threads/Topics... what do you guys consider to be "good" topics for the general forum section... keep in mind however, talking politics or international rights or anything extremely serious will completely lose the younger crowd... So I happen to think that a few of the random tidbit topics are needed, to appease the younger crowd, so they can feel like they are a part of the crunchyroll group.
Please also keep in mind that if you want to discuss something "serious" (i'm not sure what you are alluding to there) then ask for a new forum section... serious discussion only... could only have to show five or six threads.... and have a disclaimer on it stating that all replies must be longer than one sentence and thought out, etc, etc.
If you guys are so against the forum games... start a petition to get the section removed... I happen to enjoy them.. when I get few minutes at work i pop on and play a quick game... (i personally like the avatar games) it helps me though my stressful day.
When i get home is when i usually post the longer posts... (except this post... )
So basically what i'm saying is: if you don't like it, fix it.. do something don't just have a thread for bitching.

Hey, I said only yesterday that this thread can die now, in my opinion we've had some good suggestions collected so far and there's no point in posting them here anymore, but in the suggestions thread.


Anyways, to answer your questions, you need 200 cr points to start a forum, but you can get them in a day, just through gb entries or forum games or spamming...So lots of people who have very little forum experience start making 3 threads in 5 minutes as soon as they reached the 200 points. So some suggested to raise the cr points needed, because that'll force new members to hang around in the forums a little more and hopefully they'll catch some of the forum rules while doing so.

No one asked for serious topics only, but topics you can discuss and not just a question which you can answer with one word. A "Serious Discussion Only Section" would turn me off too. It'd be like a "No Humor Allowed Section".

Btw who was talking about the forum games here? I hang around in the games section a lot and I wouldn't want them removed, I can't remember anyone else asking for it either...

Sorry coulda sworn someone said something like that... maybe i mis-read.. was trying to read quick between clients... I apologize...
I re-read what i wrote... i'm not going to say i didn't mean any of it, i'm just going to say that i could have put it nicer... for that i'm sorry..
BTW
thanks for answering my questions!

I'm sick of people complaining...I get annoyed sometimes as well but I figure someone must be interested in the topic so why not? I've created topics that others thought were pointless but were very interesting to me and I've seen topics that seem boring to me but I'm sure are interesting to someone else. If no one cares about it then it'll be set aside for better topics.

The best thing you can do with a lame thread is to just ignore it. If you post a reply saying how lame it is, that will only serve to keep it on the first page. As for the early CR topics being better, I wouldn't know, cos I haven't been here all that long. What I do know is that eventually even the best topic will die, because everyone will have said what they want to say and moved on. Please don't punish people for playing the games, I really enjoy it and I am not doing it for the points. I don't mind if you make the games worth zero points, but some cruel person suggested negative points Btw, I have only started one thread the whole time I have been here.

Got to have some random threads in a forum. If you don't like it, don't bother replying. Unless if you want the cr points.
