Default Re: Stupid Posts Thread

I got tired of the Wrestling section after seing so many great posts get completely drowned out by crappy ones. Too often you see the same users come into every single thread and absolutely NEED to post something even when it's not thought out, or absolutely have to make a thread about something they easily could've posted somewhere in the existing threads.

Just to give an example, not too long ago a user by the name of Liberty_JAC made an amazing thread about the psychology behind the Shield, you could tell that the guy put a lot of effort in creating the thread. It got 1 or two comments then quickly disappeared on the third page before you could even blink. I tried to bump it a few times, but it kept getting drowned out by the usual "Rock/CM Punk" bullshit and "who are your "top 5 wrestlers" threads that seem to pop up every second day. Sometimes i'm shocked that guys like Desolation Row still put effort into their posts when it comes to that section, though even he seems to have taken a break these days.

Basically this. It's not that there aren't things to talk about related to wrestling, but it's kind of pointless to try, because of the flood of garbage that drowns everything remotely good out. You could hunt for ages through that section and only find a few good topics/posts, and even then it would be pretty much pointless to respond unless the person who made them was still online to give you a coherent response, because otherwise you just get a bunch of illiterate ramblings, dickriding, overreaction, trolling, redundant unnecessary one-word reactionary garbage, and Rock/Cena/Punk hate threads.

The Raw forum is the absolute worst for this. The Smackdown forum is a tiny bit better, mainly because, like Smackdown, it's become pointless and redundant, so not as many people go in it.

Good add-on.

Like I was saying not too long ago, i've had more enjoyable wrestling related discussions recently on threads completely unrelated to wrestling. I understand that there's very young kids on the Forum and not everyone has the same experience with the product than you do, but sometimes the posts are just flat out stupid regardless of the age factor, and it sucks that those are the type of people that keep recurring.

Thankfully, there are some very good wrestling posters on here that are still around, but their stuff just ends up getting lost in the shuffle with the oversaturation. What's the point of even taking time to write something thoughtful?

Not talking about threads like the RAW discussion thread, those are meant for people to shoot the shit and have fun much like this section.

Actually that's really it in a nutshell. Threads like the RAW discussion thread are for people to shoot the shit, give one-word or one-sentence answers, and fuck around. For the most part, other threads, unless they're joke threads or whatever, should not be flooded with one-word or one-sentence responses. In an ideal world, that shit would be deleted and posters who did it would get warned/temp banned. Of course, it would take about 10 times the amount of mods we have now just to even begin to stem the tide of stupidity in the WWE section, but ideally that would be the way I would go about it, at least. Just a warning announcement about one word/sentence thread topics and responses, then a hardcore warn/ban campaign. At the very least, the stupidity would quiet down for a week or so since like 90% of the forum would be temp banned.

For how much I seem to chat with SrsLii, I don't think I've spoken to her once about wrestling. And that's all I ever seem to talk about

Sections are horrible though. I'll chat about it in the right sections or here in rants with you lot aka the general good posters.

I chuckle whenever I see the dame fall on her face, tbhayley.

btw, SrsLii I know a few nights ago you said you weren't crazy about Adult Swim shows. I guess that meant everything that isn't Sealab 2021, right?
