    I guess the Trump thread needs a few more "Disarray In The Pretentious Patrol" moments, where one of them demands an apology from the other over whatever, to finally overtake Ruthven's thread.

    (Interesting to notice that most of the threads that have 1,000+ posts were started by Jim7 or clan ruthervain)

    I request that the political thread be closed or pruned so that it does not surpass the camwhore thread

    You just need to start camwhoring more.
    Sorry for the lousy German

    'member when Stick Cam or whatever however it was called was a bit of a thing here for a minute but, yes, the Trump Dumpster thread should wither on the vine. Only about four people max have read most of it. I mean, seriously, I don't even think it's possible for the handful of people that have posted 90% of it to have read every one of their own posts!

    Weird how the non-participants in the Politics Thread keep saying it should die or be closed or something. "Only about four people have read most of it"? Well only about four people post on these forums, and that's where they're posting.

    The whole, as someone else described it, "liberal circle jerk" thing (well, maybe they're liberal compared to whoever used that term) doesn't really concern me since these forums have always been kind of a circle-jerking pit... but now I do think that the current Trump thread should be closed and a new one titled, say, "Making America Great Again: Changelog #2" should be started as a sequel.

    (Of course, I could just get mb to close the thread so that I could start the new one instead, BUT....)

    I guess I don't really care about/for the idea of stepping in to artificially truncate or modify the natural conversation to preserve some weird image of Massassi that was, someone's particular idea of what's most important about these forums (The Camhoez thread being the longest thread???).

    Though clearly Massassi isn't even really a shadow of its former self. It's a much smaller, quieter, different thing entirely, just with a few of the same people from before. That's alright tho. We still get to talk about Star Wars movies, reminisce about the heights of JK editing, whatever.

    i bet if fgr posted a selfie in the camwhore thread it would generate a lot of interest and drive up traffic

    or maybe it would ruin everything, i don't know im not an expert

    It shouldn't be closed until it has 11,331 replies.

    I'm happy all the trump discussion happens there. At least, I'm assuming that's what's going on in there. shudder

    Sometimes it feels a little bit more like metaphysics, but I think it's mostly politics

    It'd be nice if that stuff (and all adjacent metaphysicos) was merely contained to the Trump thread, but...

    ... wink wink

    let's keep the Trump thread going until the next season of Rick & Morty is released

    There's a lot of personal growth and learning how to love. Really, it's beautiful.

    The "Trump thread" isn't all that much about Trump actually.

    He does get a mention every now and then, sure.

    Looks like that list only has general discussion threads, since both NeS1 and NeS2 have 1,999 replies each.

    A few people might come out of the woodwork. There are a fair number of lurkers.

    Oh yeah! Amended the list (from the currently visible forums, didn't check the hidden ones) - surprisingly the thread with the most replies turned out not to be in the Discussion Forum. Oddly, the Showcase Forum had no 1,000+ post threads.

    Regardless, the Trump thread must die. Or just have a lot longer and more frequent Disarray moments, I want to see who has to apologize to whom next!

    FoJ was spammed and abused to the point that it took down the forums a few times. I'd've assumed the longest thread got posted there, although it was probably deleted.

    Since we talk so much about R.E.M. in it, there's also a lot of apologizing that happens in the music thread.

    If we could let Koobie loose and confine him to a single thread you would have 12,000 posts in a month.

    (Lets try it)

    A new year, a new Free Koobie campaign .

  34. #34
    Nikumubeki and Brian, how do you feel about making two new sub-forums? One for politics and religion (this way, the Trump thread can also be broken up into arbitrary numbers of threads, rather than one monolithic one). The other is a Koobie reservation, which anybody may visit, but he is not allowed to leave (I apologize for the offensive analogy).

    Dude I don't want to have to click a second time to get to a subforum with only one thread in it.

  36. #36
    Or, to be less impolite, split the board into three forums, according to the following rules:

    1. A forum where politics and religion are allowed to be discussed.

    2. A forum where shameless promotion and spam is allowed (Koobie's writing, Nikumubeki's TODOA posts, etc.).

    3. A forum for everything else. Anything resembling the first two posted here will be moved to the appropriate forum.

  37. #37
    Actually, how about this. Just bring the religion forum back, and move the Trump thread there. Also move the Elon Musk, school shootings, and all political threads there.

    Then, make a sticky thread for promotional posts, and move anything other members see as spam there. Members who have been known to post only spam (Koobie is the only one here) will be restricted to posting here only.
