The things you guys are complaining about were a huge part of the reason for the mass exodus 2 years ago. It was a problem then and it seems to have gotten worse. Unfortunately, when you're in someone else's house you have to play by their rules and this is TB's house.
@fishsticks-n-custard Thank you for reminding me umbros were a thing! (Yeah probably the same age as you.)
@LazyCrane That exodus makes much more sense to me this week than it did last week. I like the format just fine, but I'm here for the people and have no "loyalty" to TB. If it gets worse and other folks want to find a new home at some point I will definitely go with.
Possible TW?*Snip*It's particularly stupid once you've been looking at it for a year and have IF. Like yes, please show me pictures of more happy KU people. That wasn't enough yesterday.
I just don't understand why reporting people who are in violation of TOU and then writing one word (if you must comment), "reported," is not a better way to handle MUD posts, pee stick posts, etc. I agree that clueless people should be politely redirected. I also think it's pretty easy to tell the difference. I think making a huuuuge deal about posts that are clearly nonsense or have already been addressed by like 20 people is clearly not worth it. And my point wasn't that we should complain about the UX, it was that it is dumb to complain about how admins deal with bannings. At the end of the day this is a forum site, and the admins are likely some 22-year-old random fool with 500 other job responsibilities. Obv everyone can make their own decisions, but we talk a lot about treating this board like friendships and conversations in real life, and if some crazy person came up to you and 50 of your friends with a weird question IRL, maybe 5 people would respond, max. It would never be a tidal wave of, "me too, me too, I'd like to ALSO explain how you've wronged me." I get that kiersten whatever might have been clueless, but there have been so many in the past few days that are cllleeaaarrrllllyyy MUD. The more people comment, the more the thread stays alive. Report. Comment on something else and push it off page 1.
