Hey there, Pub Crawlers!

I would like to know what you think about the pub. Do you like it? Do you hate it? Do you feel that it succeeds in the chillin' where OTD has failed?

Are our moderators doing thier jobs? Do we have too many moderators? Not enough moderators?

I like it how it is. Of course it could be better, but I think that has more to do with the people who post. Even though the pub has a slower pace to it, the posts are quality, not the random shit in OTD

cj still wants to give it the boot.

possibly start weeding out the excessive posting in otd. there's no point to "what are you doing right now" or "hi, how are you" posts.

I dont have a big number next to my name, so I'll say this and shush. In regards to the types of posts you listed in OTD, sure, they're frivolous, but they more often than not seem to get responses, even if its just more silliness. If someone wants to chat nonsense with other like minded individuals, is that so bad?

you don't have to have a big number next to your name for me to value your opinion.

you're right... the silliness pulls in other silliness, and thus we have big threads full of nothing. this pushes content down the page.

if someone wants to just put nonsense out, the internet equivalent of "talking just to hear the sound of your own voice", i feel they should go to chat for that. we do have a chat server.

OTD Pros and Cons

Pro: quick responces make it chat-like
Con: frivolous posts waste bandwidth and resources
Pro: gives some psychological insite to posters
Con: attracts flames, puppets, etc.

???: attracts traffic
good for sponser's with banner ads
is it good for security?

The forum needs regular posters, it seems to me to be a place where people go when things are slow elsewhere. With a bit more chilled out banter it could be cool.

I like this place, threads can last weeks with semi-serious discussion, in OTD they will be buried in a matter of hours or trolled out by people who care less about the topic at hand. I think there should be a free for all forum and a (slightly)-meaning no flames, trolling) moderated free-discussion forum, but no one seems to like that idea.

Also I don't see why this forum needs more than 2 mods unless some serious trolling gets started.

I love the pub. It's very chill compared to OTD. I can post without fear of being flamed and people generally post thoughtful, worthwhile things.

So stay here in your cosy pub :-)
btw worthlessness is an opinon.The world isn't run on your opinion,
and i for one dont agree with it.

Many like otd as it is.Look at the traffic there.If you dont like it there dont
go there, is that so hard to do?

If you do feel you need to go there maybe you could actually try and post what you see as not worthless and see what kind of responses you get.
