    I've seen SOO many of these stupid little threads that probably make many people irritated, along with mods closing them/deleting them. I think something needs to be done about it. One of my ideas is that a mod pre-reviews a thread before it is posted. While this is very inefficient, it would remove all the stupid threads that pop up on this website daily.

    Any other views on this would be appreciated.


    Thanks.

    EDIT: I'm not saying that we should ONLY do thread moderation, that's just a quick brainstorm of mine. I wanted YOUR ideas about what we can do to fix those situations.

    Sorry if I didn't make that clear from the beginning. :3

    You report them then ignore them.

    Mods delete them.

    The moderator coverage isn't large enough. There are times when there can be no moderators available for several hours.

    More work for the mods AND giving them too much power AND there being more of a delay when posting a thread?

    Trolls gonna troll. The trick is to not care.

    ^^^ Example: The Chicken threads :-/

    I'm usually up around the later hours since I'm on western side of the U.S. I know that most of the people on the Eastern Coast are probably asleep at that time, such as some mods. We went for well around an hour with no response from anyone. That's why I think that something should be done.

    Terribly obscene threads like Chicken's happen so infrequently that they're negligible.
    And yeah, there are times when no mods are on for a few hours straight. There's simply not enough coverage.

    True. However, when they do happen, it's absolutely terrible.

    Nah, I don't think mods like me. :p

    This idea has come up before, and it was generally accepted that there aren't enough mods for this.

    :p

    We wouldn't have to worry about deleting them ASAP if you kids stopped posting in the damn things when they cropped up.

    How many are there approximately?

    Maybe we could consider just certain sections of the forum being moderated thread-wise. For example, the Constructive Speedcubing Discussion section. :p

    There's the other thing I was just thinking about.

    Great idea. I was awake when the chicken thing happened and had my fun with it. The threads are started by newb users who dont learn their lesson after the first useless thread. Flyingfingers seems to be the most recent one. And i will admit that everytime i see one of his threads i click it to see if its worth spamming just because his threads are useless. But usually their closed already. This topic has been discussed many times and nothing gets done.

    About spamming: No. Absolutely not.

    Like people said, not enough mods.

    You assume too much or are poorly informed.

    Also, stay on topic. If you think we don't like you, then we probably don't.

    Your "fun with it" was one of the reasons why it didn't die and fall off the front page. Thanks a lot for that.

    There should be a limit to the threads you can make in a given time frame.
    Like one a week in a certain sub section.

    I dont think all new threads should be moderated, only the ones by new and trouble making users. As Austin said there are not enough mods and most especially between the hours of 10 PM to 6 AM EST. I am on the forums constantly and am always on from 11 PM to 2 AM and sometimes longer. During the school days I check the forums occasionally when I am in a wifi area of the school.

    I am not asking to be a mod but there does need to be more of them.

    I think one a week would be a little harsh. I would prefer one every 1-5 hours instead.

    They should work out a time schedule. Have mods on as long as possible and have very small sections of time when their off. But this means more mods....
