for otd another idea:

have a warning page you have to go through 1st. kinda like when you go out of bounds in a ski area or go hiking in wilderness areas. the kind of link we all click when entering pron sites :smile:

example: warning you are entering OTD, this forum may contain pics and post that are unpleasent to to some. flaming, profanity, offensive and senseless posts may be present. enter at your own risk. by clicking this link you are agreeing that you desire such an enviroment.
you have been warned.


also perhaps limit the # of threads an individual may begin over a certain time period.

just an idea

Both excellent ideas.  However a hidden forum offers easier implementation.  An incarnation of this idea has been tossed around but no one said whether or not it is feasible and I sure don't kno how to add a splash page to a forum :lipsrsealed:

I think oDin's idea is easily the best thing. This makes it so that OTD is not shoved off in the corner for nobody to find, but there is no way that someone who wanted to avoid offensive content could accidentally stumble in.

By the way...

It's definately feasible. It's certainly easier to add a splash page to a forum than to restrict it to certain members.

I think this is a good idea. I rarely visit with OTD, but still feel it to be a very important part of the community. A splash page is a good idea. Maybe somthing to limit the ammount of space (expiring posts) Other than that, OTD has and should always be a kind of free for all. It should be very lightly moderated IMO.
The free nature of OTD is a great thing. The intense bashing of people who are seemingly depressed/ suicidial should not be tolerated though.

Restricting forums by usergroups is already built into the board software... splash pages are not and would require custom addition to this release and each subsequent release of the BB software.

> We've done that before

The problem is that each time ubbthreads releases a new update to their software, all the custom hacks that have been put into the forums have to be merged into the update. Needless to say, this is a pain, prone to produce bugs, etc...

I was just saying that we've done the warning and disclaimer thing before right in the forum discription. Guess the people that complained didn't bother to read it. Not quite the same as what oDin's suggesting, but similar. :smile:

I personally feel that keeping the forum hidden will make it a lot less prone to attack from zealots. Like all abortions, OTD should remain safe and legal. If hiding it will help to achieve this then I am all for it. Anything to send the censors away disappointed.

Additionally, it's fun to post in a hidden forum.
