A separate forum just for debating and flaming
    #604242 - 04/10/02 01:46 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

I guess this should go in the suggestions forum but I figure more people will see it here. Feel free to move it.

I'm not sure if this has come up already or even if it would work but how about a separate forum just for those who want to debate and flame eachother. That should drastically cut down on all the bullshit that goes on in the regular forums. It should also make the moderators jobs a little easier. Nobody who posts in the new forum should be censored either, unless they do something stupid and post someones address or some other confidential information.

In my opinion, it would be a big help to everyone.

Then move it...

How off topic is it really? This forum is often full of debating and flaming.

It has EVERYTHING to do with this forum because this forum is where most of the arguing and flaming occurs. I would put it in the suggestions forum if anyone ever went in there.

BTW, I cant think of a better way to show respect than to try and help people out, which is all I'm trying to do here.

You should love a flame forum. It would suit you perfectly.

I would rather see it called the debate forum however.

I think what he meant by off topic disscussion is that it is the forum you are looking for to do your debating and flaming.

Looks like it...

Some people just can't stop themselves from flaming, which makes my idea even more valid. Thanks.

Well things have improved here, its not perfect but the idea for this forum is for debates to occur as long as it is done with some tact.

But I'm open to suggestions of course, this forum obviously isn't the jewel of this site :wink:

Well, you misinterpreted my post. My idea is intended to keep all the BS out of regular forums and into one single forum where flaming and debating is welcome. My idea stems from reading the posts of others, like me, who do not enjoy sifting through all the garbage one needs to sift through to get to any meaningful thoughts. I'm not saying this is always the case, but it is a lot of the time. I hate the fact that this thread seems to have gone in the exact opposite direction as I had inteded. I guess I'm the only one around here who would like to see the arguing and flaming go somewhere else. BTW, I take offense to the idea that I'm doing this so I personally would have a place to have arguments and flame others. That's ridiculous. I know I dont have a millions posts, but when I do post, I'm either helping someone with a question or posting an idea I think may help in some way. I'm not doing this for my own agenda...geez...as a matter of fact, I can guarantee I would never post one single time in the forum.

I'm only jokin' with ya bass!

We do have this thing called 'Private Messages' which is a good alternative to a public flame war. Who wants to read a bunch of lies and bullshit slander anyways?

Cool...It sounded like you were serious though.

I agree about the PM's. Some people like arguing in public. They think their wit will gain them respect amongst their peers. It won't stop I suppose even with a designated forum. I'm sure I just wasted my time posting any of this in the first place. Bad idea.

i dont think a seperate forum would stop anything... people cause trouble within threads... someone isnt gonna read something and think "hey, im gonna start a flame, better take it to the flame forum". just a thought

We need a forum where we can read happy posts full of bullshit.
Unchecked by members who know the truth.
A forum for juicing vendor ass.

Wait!! We have that. Nevermind.

Who wants to read the truth to counter the bullshit from some vendors anyways?


Never under estimate the gullability of the idiot element.

This is not a new idea, The Forest Floor has what's called the "bitch forum" and I'm not sure it helps all that much.
