The controversial front page comments / wiki entries

#1
Has been declared unprofessional etc. by a number of people including a user / advertiser. This stuff can easily go. I personally think it adds to the site, but I am also aware than I am only one and that the novelty will soon wear off.

I will hold a vote in a week and if the majority or even a strong minority say we should chop it then I will.

Last I checked this wasn't an official site, but a rumour site. What's wrong with a bit of a laugh. Assuming that the comments don't become too OTT.

Yup, agreed. Will not be shown in the work safe theme when it's done, assuming they stay anyway.

Appreciated that it takes time and effort to create new themes, but if we are going to pander to those who should probably be doing something constructive rather than surfing ARRSE by having a "Worksafe" theme, can we have a "Work Unsafe" theme as well?

I find it (the wiki/comments) rather amusing, and would be even better when some more entries get added (content to be moderated somehow?)

How about an option to turn them on or off?

"devilish, warning! your image upload DirtyRimmings69.jpg has been quarantined. Show image folder clean at 2200 hours in the Naafi Bar!"


think that may be a good idea GCO, my uploads only ever stretch to "MongsOnPogo-sticks.jpg".......

teach you for skiving auld yin!

I'm a bit lost with the new look of the site, undecided whether I like it, but the comments are something I definately like.

I love 'em myself, but perhaps some sort of toggle may be an idea for those at work and who don't have the luxury of their own office

Agreed - a simple insult me / don't insult me + / - type widget is needed.

I love 'em. nothing like a bit of random abuse to bring things into the proper focus.

Life is short, soak it up while you can.

I like them, but agree that they should be moderated to some degree. The Home Page is not the NAAFI Bar and as such should have comments that will not make the average user (military, civilian or scum sucking bottom feeder*) feel that they should hold a piece of paper over the screen to avoid embarrassing themselves.

Agreed - I removed the gay porn one and the wiki wanksock entry and will try to keep them reasonably clean.

To be honest its one of the things that i like about this new layout, the picture and that little welcome message is the first place i look, I reckon a simple on/off toggle would be fine. Afterall its still a mil site isnt it and the sense of humour should come with it.

I think the insults are great and suggest some are being a tad precious really.

I agree with Proximo.

How much time are you really going to spend on the main page anyway? The meat of the site is, and always will be, the forums.
