About the Monkey Den

KnobKnob TURN THE BEAT BACKInternetModerator mod
The influx of new users rushing in here to spew off their first post is semi-problematic. These topics are pushing actual issues further down and off the page.

Suggestions for improvement?
Possibly a name change- The Monkey Den sounds like a place to hang out and be silly
Moved to a seperate section- Maybe to it's own category near the bottom, like it used to be, rather than being the very first forum lumped together with the OT forums
Tool-tip description- It's clean looking, but having the forum description as a tooltip means 98%* of people aren't going to see it.

I dunno, just some ideas.

    any way to just not let new users make topics in the monkey den for at least a couple days?

    You know, this probably should have been made in the mod forum. However, seeing as it has been discussed there countless times and the conclusion to it was always that the admins didn't want anything changed, moving it there would probably be fruitless.

    Yeah, but regular users can't voice their opinion about it there.

    Here they can.

    I think putting the monkey den in its own category below the on-topic forums would help much

    Actually, I like it where it is. It's a good filter, to catch the cream of the crop of retards, who read absolutely none of the rules. This way, they don't have time to spread to other forums and spew their crap.

    I like it where it is as well, and as matthasaproblem said it catches a lot o dumbasses so's you guys have early warning for who should be watched...

    How about instead of locking a thread like the JT ones, just delete them, PM the OP and threaten castration, and call it a day. That way real topics stay where they should be, and the others are just plain ole gone.

    :^: I think I read each Forum's rules before I posted anywhere here. But that's only because I had lurked in SE++ first and saw that everyone there was/is a rabid hungry polar bear that would rip my nuts off (castration mentioned in both my posts now) if I dared not follow the rules.

    So maybe I should suggest a lovely mixture of letting Jordyn, J. Grant, Knee Jerk, and Defender all have a go at the new kids before they get to post anywhere. :) Just make the n00bz forum only available to people just signing up. After they take the verbal beating from those above, then they can go elsewhere...


    worst. idea. evar.

    That really makes sense considering this:

    Explain how letting idiots spew shit would solve that problem.

    The only to do that would be to just delete those threads, but that is a lot of unnecessary work when there are other viable solutions.

    Place it in it's own section on top of all the other forums so that it gets the distinction of having it's own catagory as well as the viewability of being the forum at the top. Name it's own catagory "The Admin Zone" or something of equal value without such a horky name. Place a ALL CAPS thread at the top with the title of "DO NOT POST INTRO THREADS HERE" or "READ THE ENCLOSED RULES BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING" or "DROP THE FUCKING MOUSE AND LISTEN UP". Can Admin up the Font Size of the title of that thread.....and make it blinking.....or something.

    1) It is unnecssary because it shouldn't need to be taken care of.
    2) Those other viable solutions were already mentioned by Knob.

    Seriously, using a forum intended for actual issues and tech problems about the site as a filter to catch idiotic new registrees is not a viable solution. G&T and SE can handle the shit from new users because most of the time there is a mod available to deal with it, and the forums move fast enough to push those crap threads down the page.
