The Lounge

Lounge Requirements:

Frankly it is a lil ridiculous how many ppl with 2 posts find their way into the lounge and post nothing but trash. I propose a minimum post count to post in the lounge or minimum days as a member on PBF. G35driver does this for their marketplace and its really nice.

That's pretty much the reason. If we did that it would kill the lounge even more.

The thing to remember too, is new posters don't always know what it acceptable and what isn't, that's just part of being new. However, they usually figure it out once they've joined in discussions for a while. Sometimes the best method of making sure new members are competent, is by having a lot of competent older members, that can instruct new members in an acceptable manner (think: peer pressure).

No kidding, that's how it was done back in the day. Just ask VPraidersfan1. I've got supers breathing down my neck for everything, and then everyone wonders why we have all this **** happen. I understand the needs for rules and limitations, but if no one says anything, how do these people know they are in the wrong?

Viva la 2k5 pbf.

It's how I learned.

I wouldn't be a mod right now if I hadn't got my fair share.

Guiding new members in an appropriate manner when they need correcting and flaming the hell out of them innappropriately is what makes the difference between a regular forum and an great forum.

Check out the way things go over at Welcome To The World-Wide F-Body Hideout and Northeastshooters.com New England's Premier Shooting Forum too see an example of a great forum, my username is the same on both as it is here. Neither Mark nor Derik would stand for any flamming on their boards and treat all members equally until they do something to be treated otherwise.

I'll admit that I do not yet know what is considered acceptable on this forum as I haven't had enough exposure, but flamming people is not the way to make friends. Everyone has something to contribute whether you realize it or not and scaring them away at the first chance is only going to limit your knowledge base.

But its all good and if I'm not welcome here than just say so and I'll go over and post on another PB forum. I don't join forums to be a wallflower but to actively contribute. If my contributions are not what you want then I appologize and will conduct my contributing elsewhere.

Hell, I was the biggest newb on this forum back in the day. I remember getting flamed for making stupid lounge posts more than once. Its how you mature on a forum. Age has little to do with it. A 22 year old can come in here and act like a jackass just like a 14 year old kid can.

Internet. Serious Business.

The rules state:
  • Please do not flame individual board members. While it is natural to disagree, do so intelligently. Repeated flames will lead to user infractions and possible suspension of your user privileges.

In other words, explain to someone what they're doing wrong. A gentle ribbing is ok from time to time, but out right flaming isn't usually tolerated. All that does is completely discourage new members scaring them away, instead of having the desired result of teaching them proper etiquette and having them become part of our happy little family.

Now, If someone is causing a real problem, let us know so we can handle it, after all that's what the staff is here for. They have to earn their pay somehow.

I definitely learned the hard way. Bubba and I got into a pretty big argument over this stuff, and it turned me out well I think.

So you follow me into the supporter forum after I admit that I was in the wrong in both threads, and praise an idea I had to try and get people involved, now your back to douching it up to me in here.

Good.

Whatever dude. I get tired of a bunch of kids ****ing running this place for one day, and now "I go back and forth"? I guess we can just disreguard the last four years that I have been on here helping people.

**** this forum.

Chill out man. It's just a forum.

I don't think the lounge could survive without a bunch of newbies trolling threads and making our lives hell. But I mean really there might be 10-15 people who post decent topics and most of them still do some stupid threads every now and then. But still 10-15 people can't keep a lounge going. We need new people. I did agree with this before but I sort of understand where Dooms and everyone is coming from.

<3 cheer up man.

The thumb up in your sig only makes that post funnier.

I'm all for giving someone a hard time (no matter who they are) over a straight stupid lounge post.
