Bleats and whines

#1
If you have a beef, had your post removed, want to blub to matron about something that a nasty mod has done post here. Any suggestions for making the place better than isn't more complex than stripping a 432 to bare bones

Make it relevant and don't be a penis though, please.

MDN

You have now started several posts re the NAAFI bar and I can understand why, but am getting slightkly pis sed off with it.

However, they are really Site Issues and should be posted there. You might get responses from peeps who no longer come into NAAFI.

If you harken back to the days of Auld Sapper, RTFQ, Mistersoft then PM them and ask them to join the fray.

As to whines and whinges - feck em. Don't like it join the Boy Scouts.

Not site issues, I moderate the NAAFI bar and its about the NAAFI bar not the rest of the site.

OK

Suggestion:

When a PM is sent to me I get a pop-up telling me that a PM is in the in-box.

Can something be done in a similar way when a thread is sent to the hole? A pop up is sent to posters saying said item is now in the Arrsehole.

This may stop the "Where are/is my thread, I was being fecking brilliant and now it has disappeared". They can then go to the Hole and continue being as fecking dull as they wish.

Is this posible?

Read this post: http://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/viewtopic/p=2477167.html#2477167

Notice the 'techno changes' bit. I think we should keep an eye to the Hole ourselves.

This may stop the "Where are/is my thread, I was being fecking brilliant and now it has disappeared".
People who start such threads ought to be shot in the face immediatly (including all their off spring). Only retards open such topics. People gifted with a functioning left and right lob do the math themselves.

If it can be done for PMs surely it is not much of a techno change - though I am a complete techno biff myself.

Point noted though.

Time was when utter tosh was put into the ARRSEHOLE and people carried on with it there. Since the hole was made "read only" all such crap just gets revived in the NAAFI.

If the hole was made read/write again then utter crap and drivel could be shuffled off into it and the posters in question could carry on with their witterings there leaving the NAAFI for better things.

This is what i fail to see..... if something is crap and holed and seen to be crap and holed, why on earth would you feel it necessary to continue with it?

Yes it is only my opinion, hence the poll and hence me asking questions in here and setting up this facility.

I take it you aren't answering the question as to why you or others would want to continue posting on a thrappy thead? Why would someone want to post 40 pages of tosh if they read the quite simple forum guidlenes?

There is a chatroom for tosh talk?

bring back the hole.
To cater for people who have no self control and like posting tosh?

Why?

The fact is that people do want to carry on with stuff that has been holed otherwise there wouldn't be threads in the NAAFI about "Why was my thread holed? let's start it again here..." In the past I even posted threads to the hole because I thought people might find them amusing but they weren't worthy of the NAAFI.

"A collection of all the most irrelevant, dull, and annoying posts." is what the hole is for but it's just used as an alternative to locking a thread now.

Read the first post in this thread.

In the past the hole has been open to posts, its unmoderated and it rapidly descended into far worse than what the NAAFI is now. Its a dustbin, it wouldn't bother me if the Arrsehole was made invisible to users, that way when its canned its gone.

I have worms, and when I wake up in the morning my fingernails smell of pooh, what can I do

I generally look at views and responces prior to making any judgements,

If it bores you simply don't respond, otherwise you are responding to what bores you, I'd argue that made you a bit of a c0ck that simply had to post no matter what, especially if the subject topic included male genitalia.

If there was a couple of posts with 'to the hole' after it then thats where it would go. I have no problem holing my own threads if hats what you were asking. It was an attempt at making an effort. You could try it ?

The Arrsehole also contains threads which frankly show this site in less than a positive light. They're left in there to show examples of what not to post.

Making it read only, also stops it being google searchable.

I'd rather can the arrsehole and chop threads, then give people the opportunity to contribute more google searchable shit connected with this site.

Arguing to have the arrsehole reopened to post on seriously shitty or bone threads indicates a serious lack of consideration of the bigger picture, and a serious "me-me-me I will post what I want and damn the consequences" mindset.

Then people can vote with their keyboards I suppose, lots of views and responses. If you look at the most active threads (lots of views and posts) you will see what people find interesting and one of the more popular is tits and arrses by the way.

There were loads of suggestions posted up on the other threads which means that people were both thinking about and have a real interest in making the place better. We have all posted shite, I know I have and like anything there will be hits and misses

As opposed to leaving them live, on the last 50 post page if in the NAAFI? We have seen the issue is the sheer weight of work required by the small mod staff. If you only have the NAAFI, then the workload increases. If you re-open the Arrsehole, threads that are not deemed fit enough to stay in the NAAFI but are not totally binnable will still allow those that feel they need to, to continue to crayon out of site of the mainpages and the front page. If that facility is not there, they will just start new threads in the NAAFI (or elsewhere) to crayon on. Relying on members to use self control does not always work due to the huge numbers of members and the open membership.

The argument comes up that if you dont have a 'storm drain' that is the arrsehole, the NAAFI just has turds bobbing around very visibly on the front page. If you only have the NAAFI as the place to post non serious, non relevant stuff, you will increase the workload of the mods. As for google searchle things reflecting badly on arrse? If a thread is that bad, it should get binned anyway.

We used to have a quality thread banner, if anyone has a link to it, or has the time to make one I'd be grateful.

Also if anyone has links to decent threads from times gone by, list them here and I'll do what I can to bring them back to the front to see if we've any shining star posters in the members list
