So touchy.

I'm sure bodrul meant nothing of offense, so no need to counter.

I don't read any more into this than what it is..an enforcing of a rule that was already in place.Yes, one of my threads was locked, a very active one.But Iam not going to have sour grapes about it.Iam going to say though, that many members enjoy game threads, and perhaps in the future they could have their own forum specifically for that.
I don't see that KingLizard or Duzey are powertripping.
Yesterday when I saw what was happening...I knew my thread would be closed...so what?
There is more to life than a game thread.That is not everything I come here for.It's amazing how being a Mod you can't win for losing.You want the rules to be followed and enforced and the Mods to step in when you have a problem, yet when they do the job they are supposed to do people complain.You can't have it both ways.
As members we must follow the rules, we all know that.The Mods are there to remind us of that.Don't shoot the messengers.

To me is also clear what's going on here, not that hard to interpret and correct me if I'm wrong.

Threads need to have substance, no substance= no thread, simple as that, or is it?

Okay, I think I'm starting to get it.


So, basically, 80% of the threads on BTS need to be locked and roughly 96% of the threads in general chit chat, including this one? Correct?


Or am I just confused?



Who knows anymore? hahaha

I guess lol!

I don't know! Now you confused me too!

Now that you made me look at it, I think your right, most threads here in BTS lack substance for the most part, I guess that was makes it fun here.

I was under the impression that this was the whole purpose of BTS.

I thought it was created for the more "general BS" chit chat that doesn't belong in ATS.

I can understand the "post in my thread" threads being pointless or the "first to post" threads......however, the "games" can hardly be called legitimately pointless.

They serve a purpose and, while I don't participate in them, that purpose is entertainment.

There are MANY members who ONLY post in these "game" threads.


In fact, if I recall correctly, a mod wrote a "guide to ATS points" at some point in time that recommended the "game" threads in General Chit Chat as a good method to gain some BTS points while getting to know your fellow members.

Seems to me like that is serving a purpose.

Entertainment and getting to know your fellow members. While those don't have a place in the BUSINESS world, in the virtual social world that I THOUGHT BTS was, those seem to be very good, and far from pointless, things.

I'm curious if you're comparing www.ldgfx.co.uk with ATS? Or perhaps the 42 users currently online at www.staylocked.com compared to the 158 users currently online at ATS?

PS the "joke" wasn't funny.

I'm quite certain it was said in jest.

Bodrul isn't the type to be a pain in the arse.



In addition, I believe this is what has been referred to as an AKOEP.

My game thread ideas usually suck so bad that they basically lock themselves.

Peace

That maybe true but some times mirth and excitement, hilarity for a little while be for they die a nice easy peaceful death.

Cutting the juggler and having them bleed to death on the cyber street, cold blooded murder in the electron world. A thread that may have grown to be the new wall street journal for all we know.

I need to throw my 2 cents in.
KingLizard, and Duzey took the weight on their shoulders to do some spring cleaning. Look at it for what it is. Read nothing into it. Some threads were closed down. In the past I've had a thread of mine moved, I've had a thread of mine closed down. I wasn't overly pleased about it, but I understood, and just moved on to the next thread.

I used the words Spring Cleaning. Not much more to it than that.

I admit it. I am part of the problem. General Chit Chat is one of the forums I was tapped to moderate. As a Mod, I should look at some of these threads at their inception and act then, instead of letting them grow so that my fellow Mods have to do the dirty work of removing a large thread.

It's not a power trip. I'll say it again. It's nothing more than Spring cleaning.

Thanks for understanding.

Come on. Winter's a good 10 days away. Don't rush it. Allow me the illusion of enjoying the glory of late autumn. A very wet, chilly, foggy, late autumn.
