Are you kidding me!?! Do you really want Colonel running amuk on the rest of the forum. Nowhere will be safe anymore. :shk:

Mudpit strategy will be applied to all forums. The same rules we have in the mudpit, we will have in all other forums, even the rest of the BTS forums...

Well we'll all just have to control ourselves better...
But really, I still see massive spillover into the other forums.

Maybe the change will make the Pit into a more debate-oriented thing instead of flame wars.

The mud-pit will soon be access-restricted just like RATS. Members will buy access in the ATS Store. But the prices will be somewhat lower. more soon... [Edited on 27-5-2004 by SkepticOverlord]

I really hope that you are joking, Bandit! The last thing that we need is people getting more pissed at each other than they already do by spilling any little bit of bile out of their mouths at will. I do my best to stay out of the mudpit because the screaming is just not productive to any intelligent discussion.

Edit: Scratch that last bit as for SO's explanation.

Good idea, SO, at least it will keep out trolls, etc.

Hmmm, I've been wondering what to squander my well-earned points on this summer

Will it also not index the INternet, as RATS doesn't??

Thanks for not scrapping it altogether.

Can you at least make it so old timers don't have to buy access to it. Like Jonna, I'm not a big fan of the Mud Pit, so I wouldn't want to have to spend points on it, but I wouldn't want to be locked out of it either, I still check it once in a while, even tho politics isn't really my thing.

Maybe like the email thing, those who registered before , say, half year in 2003, can buy it for free.

So how exactly do we get access now? I don't see the option in the store.
Maybe Herr Colonel is restricting access to only those he deems "non-repugnant"
(just kidding)
It seems a shame to limit one of the most amusing and least informative forums though.

Oh, that's interesting! I don't think you are able to earn points for replying in the Mud-Pit, but now you'll have to use points to get inside!

The Pisky is back in


Its on the store now - 500 points.

Good idea actually - it'll stop the trolls.

Mud-Pit access now requires ATS Store purchase. The ability to purchase access is now available for all members in the store. For the next three days, access costs 500 points. After that, it will increase to the same price as RATS.

Cool, Thanks W......SO.
I guess I jumped the gun there.
500 points is but a pittance

Gosh.

You would have to pay me to get me to visit the Mudpit regularly.

*goes off to work out whether he can afford 500 Atsers *

Will the mud pit be the same way rats is, as far as google's crawler?

Just wondering if this was one of the reasons to put a price on it. Thanks for the info ahead of time.
