the problem if it became a fee paying obard, then it means Dev can make me be nice to people like pornapster.
and thats never gonna happen daddio!
my problems with boards?
too many people with no humour.
that cant be helped.
too many muppets.
again, its a ratio thing.
too many cry babies.
ok, personal issues aside (theirs, not the board) i cant help it if people get offended at jokes about kittens or whatever
too much spam.
jesus, someone brings up something deemed off topic and things go mayhem, someone moans on admin and dev feels he has to get involved.
the mnain problem with boards.ie is that too many people here are too goddam PC.
i mean anyone who puts forward a view that is not in with the run of the mill sheep like mentailty, and immediately youre a spammer, a troll, or should be banned and burned at the stake.
i think its up to the mods to be more aware.
its not good enough that someone goes straight to dev.
thats just rubbish.
if someone gives someone a bollocking on the boards, then let us all see it. if youre stupid enough to write it, then goddam it, you should be made to pay by letting us laugh at you.
these boards were originally designed for people who were into a small community gaming scene who all know each other. the crap flung at each other would make half the people who read these boards faint. it used to be very funny. bring back damo v hobbes i say!
however i digress.
the mods are there to look after a board.
if a board gets spammed, then delete it. its not a big deal.
hell, every one of us spams at one point or another. you gonna cry out for us all to be banned.
hell, ive lost count of the amount of people that want me banned, but i dont give a toss for two reasons.
1) im actually a damn good mod on my own boards
2) i actually from time to time add something constructive to a topic.
but just becuase its a boards, doesnt mean i have to.
im not obliged to give my heartfelt opinion on every topic.
if i want to take the píss out of poor johny with the broken heart who ithink deserved it, i will. and anyone who says im harsh can go away. its my opinion.
too many soft mods who should just do their job (and no, im not singling out anyone for you paranoid out there) and too many people who feel that boards is their private property and who demand x,y and z.
i treat boards.ie like my playground. i come here to have fun. but never make the mistake that you own the place. get a grip, its a virtual world. if we all met in the pub it would be pints all around, and no-one gives a toss if you said that and he said the other and she wasnt interested in anything either of you said.
so, just skip all the above and read this.
devore, youre too involved, sit back and let the people who are suppose to be patrolling patrol.
that will stop the stupid whinging.
hmm, i wonder if i have made any sense at all?
