Here's a suggestion that is not only smart...

but god damn fucking genius.


rename the Monkey Den so folks realize by looking at the title that it is an on topic forum meant for administrative announcements, bug reports and suggestions. The name "Monkey Den" really makes it seem like it's something that it's not. People aren't going to look at the hover information (and in some instance, they can't see it anyway).

fuck your forums, fuck your administrator and fuck dynagrip for getting away with the long troll.

    Haven't really thought about it before, but Slung has a good point.

    Yeah. If we bump it up one step into the Administration section (which you can't see unless you have access to a forum there), it might work better.

    You realize it was originally named Bugs and Reports (or some such)

    Then Ramius renamed it so that people would feel more open to posting in there.

    And if they don't read the mouseover part, it's their own damn fault.

    I think a great name for the forum would be "Tell An Admin To Do His Job"

    I care about the forums, just not Tube.
    I'll bring up moving this into the administration section when we sit down and chat as admins this week.

    You could probably cut out a ton of newbie posts by not having this right at the top of the forum list on the index page.

    But yeah, a forum rename would probably work too. I suggest 'Alpha's Admin Forum & Pancake Emporium'.

    Just rename the Monkey Den to "Gabe and Tycho Read This!"

    It's the reverse psychology, you see.

    Why don't we add "Gabe and Tycho do not read this." to the Forum Tooltip? That way, we can still name it something official sounding. :wink:

    This statement gets more illuminating when you think that the internet is a series of tubes...
