I hate the FFT Forum

Postby Mookie4ever » Sun Sep 26, 2004 10:10 pm

Every single thread in there is a debate over whether the post is in the wrong post or not.

Unless you are Hammie, a mod or an admin, just leave it alone.

Respond to good posts and ignore bad posts.

When were all of you guys deputized anyways?

I think its probably just an adjustment phase, on a couple of fronts, first, lots of new members and second, the webhamster going in there and clamping down on misplaced threads.

Give it a couple of weeks and it will settle down again. ;-D

I very much like him, and hopefully if he's the only one doing the deed that would be fine with me. It doesn't give new members a person to throw their anger against except for the Hamster...who as I said before is the robot version of a stress ball, or a punching bag, or maybe one of those old WWF Bed Buddies that you could use as a pillow or a beat-down doll. :-b

It doesn't hurt him, and no one else gets attacked! ;-D

Third, regulars going into these threads and arguing with people posting in the wrong forum.

I do think that it will all get sorted out soon but I went into the FFT Forum last night and, even avoiding the locked threads, 3 of 4 threads that I read devolved into a wrong forum/get stuffed debate.

Also there is a legitimate issue over where the line between the FFT Forum and the start sit/cheering venting/draft trade and general talk Forums should be drawn. Arlo and menyak gave this discretion to the mods to exercise. The regulars should assume that if a thread has not been moved, that the mods have decided that it can stay.

This will get sorted out eventually, but we will lose a number of members over these arguments.

I havent been on much lately b/c im moving and have very limited internet access....

But all Im going to add is that the FFT is a place Im definitely trying to avoid even opening. Lately, anything posted has been useless and its all b/c it is 'wrong forum' type of stuff. Its easy to say just let the hampster/mods take care of it, but it is perhaps the most frustrating thing to open a forum and see nothing worth reading.

I know mookie youve said before that vets/regulars should post in the other forums more b/c that is what ultimately leads to 'wrong forum' posts. When I have internet access I do tend to post in those, but the problem is, as soon as Ive made one post, its already 5-10 down the list. There is just a HUGE flood of new posts in ALL forums that its impossible to keep up with.

I dont want new members leaving, but if they cant read the 'guidelines' and follow them, or if they get offended by someone saying 'wrong forum' then thats their own fault. I have seen a HUGE decline in veterans/regulars actually posting in any threads. Losing members is always a bad thing, but personally I would rather lose a new person who posts in the wrong forum, rather than a regular who has contributed greatly to this site.

Nobody has deputized me or anyone else, but we all are allowed to continue to voice our opinions and our frustrations.

I can't disagree with anything that you've said.
