or amend IGNORE lists so that actual threads started by members dont appear rather than just their posts. thay way I can just add the members starting 'add 1 to this number' thread and their ilk so that I never see them again.

Might come in handy for some other major bores on this site too

but he doesnt JUST want to see the deals tab. like others, wants to take part in misc but cant see the interesting stuff for all the carp :roll:
#6
oh I see.... ( I think, what deals are in Misc)

They wont split the FS forum up so I cant see them doing it in the Misc forum
#7
So... you want this Miscellaneous section to be less miscellaneous? :thumbsup:

Maybee we could have a mixed and random section to compliment the miscellaneous section?
#8
I see a lot of posts irrelevant to me...what do i do? I ignore them!!
And the games are not silly a few of us enjoy them :-D
Misc is Misc, there is a Deals section as you well know
Thank you :santa:

I don't see it working, there'll just be more posts squabbling about threads being posted in the wrong part of misc. Maybe good though if there was a separate section for HELP, I know there's deal requests and feedback already but most people tend to just post in misc from what i've seen.:)

My point was that the mindless games are starting to overtake the site completely. How anyone can get pleasure out of opening a thread and posting a number one up from the previous one is beyond me :?.

Then again, people still actually watch big brother lol

Time for my spamming powers to come into action methinks ;-):p

or how about moving the 'games' into the Competitions section?

lol:p Nooooooooooooooo don't spam them, then there'll be a page full of "who spammed the games thread?" etc........
I do see your point tho' but it's not usually as bad as that, it's just the time of year, everyone's busy doing other stuff.

exactly - a few enjoy them but it clutters the misc section up all day for the rest of us :whistling:

then again, the minority rule always comes out on top in this awful country we live in :p

I told the mods I had spammed all the game threads a while ago but I didn't get reprimanded, might this time though it's worth the risk as I must stand by my principles as in my opinion posting, 1...2.....3.....4......5 in separate posts is spamming but hey they make up their own rules depending on who the thread creator is.

Although I don't think you quite got the idea of 5 letter anagrams!
#24
Here's an older thread asking pretty much the same thing for reference. I think a split between serious and nonsense would help, and from what I remember Paul didn't rule it out but asked for more ideas such as what names the forums could be given, what would go where etc.

I recall that but as usual, the idea just got dropped. Does this site only have part-time development staff? ;-)

The problem is that if the games got their own section on HUKD, someone will request the same for "What will my .......... fetch" and the "X Factor" questions / threads. Actually, not a bad idea :) I think that the games ought to have a section of their own by the way.

Agreed. I'd like to see a split where one forum contains serious discussion, help request and advice in which off-topic/nonsense/in-joke replies were frowned upon, and a true 'nonsense' forum for all the games, jokes, nonsense and 'h4te' etc...

This would make so much sense, posters are pointed to misc for help, queries etc and it gets lost in all the other off-topic stuff
banned#30
It would be such a simple fix and solve so many different problems. I really don't understand why they won't split it.

Misc = just that - Misc
Misc (Fun) = games, competitions, rep swap rubbish etc

problem solved.

been discussed numerous times, even to the satge admin said ok and asked for ideas on naming the new misc, thats as far as it got, that was months ago

He didn't actually say "Okay". Admin rarely gives a definite "Yes" or "No".

This was his response:

Admin
What's a short one word name for the serious forum? We can't use "Help" as that generally means site specific help and would be confusing.


I really think this needs looking into

From Digitalspy (and modified):

General Discussion
The place for non-deal-specific discussion

Chatter
The place for less serious chatter.

Chatter is a sub-forum of GD, and vbul supports that, but I dunno whether the site layout would. Doesn't really matter just add another forum.

I'd just have 'General' and Chatter/Games'

of late, nursey would be a good name for misc, and maybe advice wanted for the other, or discussions
banned#39
Advice = Misc
Chatter = Fun Misc

advice = advice on anything, deals, problems, whatever
chatter = games, sillyness, humour, etc

That would work for me, and nice short names for admin/the layout.

wot he said but if the daft spammy games are still bothering people the give them their own section and let them spam/boost post count/rep until their hearts content.
