I seriously do not get why so many people post in the wrong section >__>..
Sometimes you make mistakes but I've been seeing A LOT of mistakes.
If you make a poll it's simple, you put it in the poll section, even if is about music or anime.
And then I see sometimes Mods don't do anything about it.. but Kippu seems to be a lot of help. And yes I do see other Mods doing their jobs but I don't really remember their user names.
Sorry if I seem like I'm complaining but it's getting really annoying..
edit: Also I'm not saying they're stupid.. but even the users that have been here long enough to know are posting in the wrong section
sometimes they even do that on purpose..

So my question to you is.. have you ever posted in the wrong section?
And Why do you think so many people post in the wrong section?

Lock if Duplicate.

I've posted in the wrong section a couple times, but I never did it on purpose. It was only with stuff that I didn't really know where to put and I guess I guessed wrong.

Not in the wrong section, but have had it considered a dupilcate, but it wasn't, not exactly. Someone had asked the question what would you do if everyone FORGOT about it in the next 24 hours. That implies that no one would remember (So why do it?) I asked what would you do if you would NEVER BE PUNISHED for it (it'd be remembered...you get away with it, free and clear)....but they considered it a dupe and so it died.

There are some topics that are hard to determine which section to put it in.

I don't recall of posting threads in the wrong section in the past, since I just really lurk the General and Anime section of the Forums...

For the Wrong Section mess, paradox this. Already being 3 months in of receiving Forum modding powers I have seen many people post threads in the wrong section, most likely because they forgot to choose which section they were going to post to while production of that thread...



...or otherwise, they're just being completely arrogant.

So please be fully aware of every options/settings you make when creating a thread or poll.

Polls on the other hand, will always go to the Polls section.

Even if its based upon an anime, manga, music, drama or whatever, it'll always goes to the Polls section of the forum. Unless if it goes to it's specific Library forum or the rule has been uplifted...

If a user wants to post a normal topic with a poll embedded in the post without being a polling thread, they can always go to this secluded place on CR, create the poll, and post the BB code of the poll given into the OP post.

All of this is all mentioned in the Forum Rules thread so go read it there if you haven't yet.

Please note, most threads posted in the wrong section are most of the time redeemed as duplicates.

Because there are many people who are autistic.

Never really happened to me because I don't make many threads. Though if I recall correctly all the threads I've made have been altered by mods. xD

Maybe they post in wrong section because they don't know they're suppose to post in the other section.

Well, I don't think it means they're stupid or incapable. Sometimes they just don't know, sometimes they make mistakes. Sometimes people aren't sure where the thread should go. I once put a Communism thread in GD instead of ED because I wasn't really sure.

What's really stupid is the people who spell it out for the OPs. It's just an obnoxious thing to do or whatever.

And either way, it's an internet forum.

Mistakes happen, probability of it happening is 1/50( on average), or 2%.. Therefore, 1 in fifty treads will have be posted in a wrong section..

Still that doesn't explain the large number of misplaced treads..

Well, I think either people don't READ, are in a hurry, or just plain "I don't know what category this is, but oh well, I'll let the mods handle it" , laziness..
