@SENsei Perhaps for the time being, yes. I do feel like it's a pretty halfhearted way to solve the problem, but it's the best we've got until I've got a long stretch of time to work on it..
That reminds me, I still haven't finished my chat minimode sidebar extension. I guess I should get on that!
@SENsei I agree, though it may have technical limitations due to the current database structure. It's on the drawing board, though.
Stay on topic, guys.
@Xyopq Like an ignore function? Say, that's not a bad idea.
Though truthfully a user who is ignored by enough folks should really have his behavior modified.
And see that's what I don't get. I know you thrive on the attention so why drive it away? Seems a little illogical to me :P
I have a cardinal rule in my own life.
It's something along the lines of "Don't be a dick without a really good reason." The corollary is "Your own amusement is rarely a good reason."
Now, obviously a large portion of the userbase doesn't share this view. And that's fine; I'm not here to dictate the morality of the users. But what I would like to see, for the sake of community growth, is some intelligent restraint on aggressive or shocking behavior towards visitors and new members.
To everyone else: You guys are the community; you decide if people want to hang out with you or not. You decide who the "cool kids" are, and by your actions you decide if people want to be your friends. It's not really my decision whether or not the community grows or stagnates. I'm just here to maintain and promote the site, and to keep order when you fine individuals get out of hand. If the users of CL are insufferable pricks, then that's the only kind of user you'll attract.
So think about that the next time you realize, "Wow, the chat/forums sure are dead lately."
@eterno I do think that disturbing content should be flagged for that purpose. Perhaps we should alter the guidelines on that.
We as a community should definitely be more accommodating to new users, but I'm not going to try to shape the entire userbase to fit a societal norm, either. This raises some interesting questions.
Monsieur @Lycan, I do believe I was to meet with a certain doctor, today. But he may not make his appointment. I hear that he goes where he pleases.
@NGH do stop shouting, mon cherie. You're bothering the patrons.
Oh, what's that down there, doll? He's not letting you up here?
That's a shame. The Jamaican spice is delicious when you're slightly elevated. Hmmmyes.
@NGH I'll even pull your chair out for you.
Try the Jamaican spice. It might make you more... relaxed and agreeable.
