Agree.. Disagree..?

I think its the lowest period ever right now since ive been here since.......... been here since almost forever.. i just wanted to know how the general feel was.. that is from everyone in honesty.. I think it really needs to be sorted because it isint healthy at all.. it creates a bad rep for the newcomers.. it creates a bad rep for the people who have associated with OT for a good while.. its going no where..

2 Points i want to make clear

2nd Point.. Regarding Please if you dont like the thread ignore it..

Alright i can do that to a certain extent.. but when OT gets clogged so much as it is right now.. its hard to.. because 1 thread intertwines with another and the bs just carries on.. Plus its really hard to "ignore" threads.. im concerned about looking out for OT.. ive kind of dedicated almost all my time to OT in CW throughout my stay at CW from 2002..I Love OT to the core.. so askin me to ignore threads is hopeless..im only looking out for the best interests of everyone else and lookin out for good of OT.... not just looking to cater to a selected minority..

I totally agree with you lord. Some one I respect on the forum.

Regarding Marc, interesting you bring him up abou thaving a life because apparently I have one too and yet he accused me on the Chanderpaul vs Martyn thread of attacking him and then went about in the football sim over me.

I think he needs to sort himself out and not behave so erratically.

Totally agree, I think we should all realize that this is a public forum, and not a private chatroom to exchange compliments or ask for opinions to decide what to do with yourself.

I'm not talking about Piper, but some people need to get a room.

Now why would that find place in this thread? Do you want this to descend into a personal battle too?

I think you'll find most people agree. Nibbs ought to take something from the fact that James closed two of his threads today, and described one of them as "One of the worst, if not the worst thread in Off Topic's history."

No. But when we are indeed discussing problems, its better we discuss them properly. Marc being a senior member should behave more responsibly which is why I brought it up.

Pratyush, to quote your advice in another thread:

Why not email the concerned person directly.

Wait .. wait.. i agree its a public forum.. but i and almost a lot of other people have exchanged compliments and asked for opinions.. but rather than being hyprocitical..we havent carried it over the edge.. which is my main concern.. you can do things to a certain point because after there are a lot of great people in here who have solid different opinions that id seek.. but i guess you should really be serious of what you talk about aswell..like sudeep had once mentioned in his posts regarding that... but the main thing is not to carry it over the edge.. thats when things start to get really really hard..

Now why would that find place in this thread? Do you want this to descend into a personal battle too?
Btw exactly my thoughts.. this is strictly an OT concern right now, which is always number 1 for me.. i dont think about CC at all.. right now its about sorting the OT problems here..

Okay its a general statement not directed towards Marc but as senior members, people should act more pleasant rather than directing low blows.

If even that doesnt happen, there will be utter chaos.

Without a shadow of a doubt.

As I said in some other thread, getting a little bit tipsy is okay. But then going to levels the three guffins do, it's just pure lack of self-respect on their part.

Ignoring the threads is definitely an option, but when the main OT page has half the threads which are utter drivel, it's difficult to not open one's mouth about the concern.

I was talking about the extremes too. I was referring to some posts like :

nibbs said:
mark, i think my gel is letting me down and my hair down. not sure how we can turn it around...
half said:
kurt, you're nothing short of very sensible in all honesty
When the latter comes in a thread where people are airing their concerns about OT, you know something's wrong.

Check the Soccer sim thread where Marc isnt really creating a pleasant conversation or enviroment or solving any purpose.

Regarding the nonsense which has gone on in offtopic for some time, the poor threads should be banned with warnings given to the people responsible.

The members acting like innocent saints while creatign nonsense threads is very unhealthy for the forum.

And I maintain that the senior forum members have to maintain a pleasant enviroment rather than bring in negativity and it includes every one.

I do generally pick and choose my threads, and I happen to be picking less and less to post in lately. I understand everyone's frustration, but how do you prevent garbage from clogging the board without making the forum too conservative. I've been on boards when the moderators are literally Nazis, and thats another situation when the fun is gone.

Closing ridiculous threads is fine, but if many people want to discuss a topic (granted it follows the rules) it shouldn't be closed IMO.

Btw please i dont want people to misunderstand that i came to such an action to gain support to get nibbs,half or kasper banned..! I just hope rather they can read all this and see why the fuss is always being made in their threads and why theres a general concern.

Im only doing it for the reasons i stated in my first post.. because i love OT.. and i cant stand seein it this way..

I just hope doing this.. not only them but everyone else can see and understand what needs to be done so we dont constantly have to fight and argue amongst each other here and create an uneasy atmosphere for everyone..
