No it's been ten years, and it was working fine
There´s this saying: if it ain´t broke, don´t fix it.
Since when are bonsai kittens animal abuse?
I thought they were kittens that were not actually in the bottles but a photography trick. Unless the thing I read is wrong.
Well, 102 guests online in colosseum at the moment and 52 of them are stuck in off-topic.
adbots most likely
Looking at FT (where everyone is), people don't like the changes.
I thought this was just an April Fool's joke. If it is, it's the 3rd now.
If not, then this is going to be the death of OT. Sure, it might still be there, but I wouldn't be surprised if there aren't massive amounts of people leaving shortly. Maybe this was the plan all along? Kill OT so there's no dealing with it anymore?
Nah I dont think OT will die, it just seems like out of the two forums FT is going to crush FC activity wise. FT for all intents and purposes is operating just like the old OT did activity and topic wise whereas this forum is relatively dead. I would expect that trend to continue for the most part.
In the FT. My valuable contributions no longer count as helpful towards the community!
girls and beer!
Don't bail, there's tons of stuff to do. And don't leave 50chat!
Count me in.
Why not simply create a new OT-serious forum and move threads there as required isntead of being so crassly moronic as to say 'hey, this is now a spam moshpit, enjoy!'
OT-SRSBZNS should be merged into #18 which can be renamed so that we don't require moderator assistance to bump threads.
I don't get why we don't crash FC instead.
FC has more tighter and stricter rule set. Many of us don't want to ruffle the already ruffled feathers of the mods.
Isn't that the point of a revolution?
The purpose of war isn't to die for your country forum, but to make the other bastard die for his.
We can let this run a while. If the serious forum delivers, consider this a success and keep it this way. If not, because of lack of traffic in serious forum or something like that, revert.
I'm always cautious when people say: we're just trying out if this works. Chances are the changes will stay in place even if it doesn't and people are slow to admit their plans didn't work.
Also, if this is not an April fools joke gone wrong in such an extend that it's too embarrassing to admit it was so it's paraded as an 'unfortunate coincidence' (in which case I demand immediate resignations) it was pretty spectacularly poorly timed.
Just chiming in to say that I like the new forum names. Much more descriptive of what they'll (hopefully) be about.
Not tighter rules. Same standards as the old OT. For now.
Once the usual suspects have been leeched away to elsewhere and the place is more akin to the History forum in spirit, we can also ease up here.
Actually I do not like the Debating Chamber name. Implies we are trying to create a debating forum, which we are not...
Maybe "the agora", which is from the greek term for "debate" anyway, and sounds a bit better than debating chamber?
Other than that: The bookshop, the library etc
Separate names with a comma.
