Well for me, the forum has gone from being fun to post on to being a drag to even browse. I used to laugh reading the forums, now I do not. I'm totally okay with anmar deleting a post that says "you're a faggot" but I am not okay with him deleting an amusing image that didn't really offend anyone or ruin anything. And I will respect the person who runs this sites rules, but I am also wanting to discuss those rules with him, and try and get a read on why he thinks the forum should be ran this way. And as someone who has been a major contributor to this website since just about day 1, I don't see how I'm out of line on that.


What you just said right above?  100% reasonable and you're not out of line with it.  What you said above about now we are in Alcatraz and I'm just anmar's sidekick?  Doesn't help at all and is out of line, not least of which is because those types of comments are an exact example of posts that do not lead to intelligent conversation, but rather 4chan conflict.

There certainly hasn't been many chuckle worthy threads of late. And its seeming like a lot of regular posters are becoming discouraged.

yeah, well, you're right on that rajz, so my bad. I had to get up at 6 for my first day back at college and I'm grumpy, and was irritated when I got home and read this haha. At least you can see where I'm coming from though.

I want to quote DeronWilliams right now, but I'll get banned.

The only reason I visit this site in the lockout is because of the GM game. That's it. It's incredibly boring now. It's  on topic and free of offense, but seriously, Dwight Howard dunking on a giraffe is a recent post. If that doesn't sum up the state of affairs here, then I don't know what does.

He started a thread recounting nostalgic feelings of hatred towards Jason Rubin and Bteamjobber.

You guys are QQing about how Anmar is regulating the topics on these forums and even with the new rules, this is still one of the easier going, more lenient forums i frequent.  Basically all he wants is for ppl to be respectful, on topic and to void out the crap that ppl post from time to time that makes his forums look less appetizing to new comers.

The forums have already improved in quality and its only going to get better as new ppl come in.  I know it seems like he's laying down the law to much, b/c of how lenient he was prior to the big blow out that went down with gw and bteam but in the end it will be best for the forums.  You can't post annoying pics and he is trying to keep ppl on topic with what the original topic is about.  It will cause more threads in the long run and better discussion.  Just give it some time guys and if you still don't like it 6 months from now I'm sure Anmar will here your case and rethink his decision.  All he really did is make it so you can't post annoying pics and derail threads... Its exactly what you guys asked for when you were telling Anmar why you felt GW and Bteam should be banned.  You argued that they were the cause of derailing threads and why so many threads were going off topic.  Now he is just enforcing it on everyone.

Is it really that bad that you can't post annoying pics with cliche sayings on them?  You can't call ppl names, and are now forced to be respectful?? The last month has been a thousand times better then the 3 months prior to it.

Can't argue with this. Although there are limited topics to talk about at a time like this, whenever I did come here whatever topics were available just turned into the same soap opera. Some of them were amusing, but a lot of them were just boring and redundant.

I'll be honest, I'm offended when you type people as ppl. I feel it's derailing the thread right now.

I think we should create a thread in Off-Topic called, "The Thunderdome". You repost the things you want to reply to with annoying pictures and disrespectful comments, so we can get it out of our systems. The OP clearly states that there will be trolling and derailing of threads, but since it isn't the original thread, we aren't actually derailing it, and since there's a warning, anyone who enters the Thunderdome has waived their rights to civility. Also, if somebody does derail or posts an unrelated picture, mods move it into the Thunderdome, so it can still be viewed while not derailing the thread.
Also, we capture and contain Bteam, Jubin, DeronWilliams and Jeremy and lock them in the thread so as to stay active.
