Humor Forum Proposition

Post by Azure »

Why hello all you silly moderators and random assorted d.netters. We have spoken of the long gone Humor Forum long enough and now is the time for the return of the best forum on d.net! I propose we recreate the humor forum in all its majesty. If moderation is a problem I for one would be happy to help out in any way I can and I think the Humor Forum will help bring and keep more people at d.net. Adding some more fun to d.net is going to be very important to the future life of the site in my opinion. With the looming influx of new d.net members from the release of 7th ed, a little less seriousness and a little more fun could keep our member base even more happy! (Though of course we are dark elves after all so perhaps happiness is not the most loved emotion around here!)

Cheers,

Why did we close it down before again?

I think it was due to a relentless amount of spam and the amount of time it took to moderate it. Though, it wasn't here for long after I joined, so I could be wrong.

I'm too young to have ever known the humor forum. I think it could be fun, but most funny stuffs could just go in the off topic forum.

But the major problem is the off topic forum is kind of hard on the funny threads... And a dedicated humor forum would easily open up an area for some fun! Easily moderated to keep the spamming down and therefore wont flood over the off topic forum with threads like "you know you play warhammer to much when" Those threads are fun but if we allowed them in the off topic forum it would get flooded and imo, stop being an off topic and become the humor forum

The reasons where: it was mostly spam, took ages to moderate, we ended up with a few fights and a lot of people wherent happy that some people boosted their postcount with just spam.

Tbh most of the so called humor was far from even remotely funny.

what linda said, also the fact that most of us have LIVES and do not have the time to manage that forum all the time, just have a single stickied "funny stuff" thread in off topic and be done with it

I don't think we need a forum, maybe just a monthly topic in off topic that is locked at the end of the month? A mod sponsored topic, like the funny pictures running now for example. At the end of the month the thread is locked and a new one put in its place. Therefore you get your funnues without flooding the off topic forum.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted then used against you.

I agree with crazyhorse. A one-month fun topic would be a fine alternative. Ideas could be stored up for oncoming months.

Well if we care to implement that, I would agree with that I suppose! Sounds good to me!
