Varied suggestions on GIFs, thread topics and Official threads

1. Gifs. Perhaps we could obtain an option where we could filter out all posts that are nothing but gifs? Or filter out posts with specific gifs?
*9/10 these posts have nothing to do to add to the conversations. Make that 99/100 and seem like a cheap trick to get post counts up. Anyways, the gifs cost the viewer some bandwidth and I've a limited supply. This would make it easier to read the truly good posts(usually every other post but the gif ones,lol).
*Also perhaps if these gif posts are known to be filtered, those using them would start limiting their usage in order to have their posts actually read when they want to contribute to the conversation.

2. Threads. A thread filter that auto hides any thread with a certain word as part of it's title. For example, if one wanted to filter out threads with the word "diva or divas" in the title, they would type the word into their filter.
*This would filter out the sections so a person doesn't have to check back pages to see threads they want to see. Often, I'll be going to page 2 of a forum to find a thread only to find it was bumped to page one while doing so or moved backwards to page 3. This suggestion would also prevent a person from seeing spammed multiple threads and also their effect in pushing back popular threads.
Example: Sunday there was a guy posting numerous anti mod threads due to his thread being erased. While the mods did their duty in getting rid of them, these closed threads were still all over the first page pushing back the good threads.

3. More Official Wrestler X threads, perhaps hosted by mods(unless it would be too much time taken). If threads about a certain wrestler reaches a certain total, perhaps the mods can merge them all into official threads. Right now they do that, but are missing quite a few that seem to proliferate constantly. For example: Roman Reigns' bad promo. This caused quite a few of the same type threads and an official Roman Reigns thread should have been created.

NEW TERMS FOR A WRESTLER'S STATUS:
Slide- A wrestler who loses a couple of matches in a row is on a slide. If slide continues he's in a:
Slump- A wrestler who loses for a good long time is said to be in a slump. If this slump worsens he's:
Buried-
Stasis-This is where we see a "Slide" or a "Slump" end with wrestler gaining a win
Upped-A wrestler getting a sudden push.

Re: Varied suggestions on GIFs, thread topics and Official threads

Thanks for that post:

Also, the site should consider combating what is known as "Flame Baiting" aka "Troll Baiting". This is where users use sarcasm or veiled insults to inflame another poster in order to incense them into flaming and breaking a forum rule.

Truth be told, Troll baiters are the chief reason for flame wars. A person comes in, posts an idea and a troll baiter responds with scorn, or sarcasm, or an insult that tapdances around the forum rules. The person responds, usually with a small remark and the flame baiter continues by posting more of the same. Eventually that other person is going to get angry and not being used to the rules or what is happening, responds vehemently enough to violate the forum rules. Meanwhile, the baiter wins. Also, while this is happening, others jump in on one side or the other and ...well, you see the result.

Flame baiters often travel in packs so they can back each other up. Usually 3 posters. They probably don't even disagree with the topic they're trolling, just doing the mischief because they can.

Compared to other forums I belong to(this is only wrestling forum I like, but I've many interests), this one has been pretty lucky by comparison. Troll Baiters run off people with their actions as the person feels ganged up on and unable to communicate. Some forums have become "dead zones" due to them and that's all that's left of them, sarcastic baiters.

I don't think this site has much to worry about atm of it, but it's wise to watch for it. Many sites are doing so now.

Re: Varied suggestions on GIFs, thread topics and Official threads

@1. Not an entirely bad idea but it would probably be very hard to sort out, if it even is possible.

I actually agree in part because I hate seeing GIF images coded into the forum from large hosting sites, as they lag my computer for some ungodly reason and use up a respectable bit of bandwidth for a fucking image.

@2. Same as above, seems hard. Would be nice to filter out SPOILERS, as some people can't manage to NOT put a spoiler in their thread title, even with the word SPOILER.

@3. No. All threads that are similar get merged eventually. Not all mods are available at all times. You can help by reporting threads that you think are similar and suggesting they be merged, as far as I know.


As for your 'flame batters' post, I personally don't understand your disdain.
But are you talking about a certain trio of Eva Marie divas fans?

Re: Varied suggestions on GIFs, thread topics and Official threads

Some GIFs do serve a valid purpose though, like when somebody makes a terrible topic which you know is about to get closed, or was made just to bait some easy anger out of people, a simple GIF can serve the purpose more then any words could.

I for one move to make these GIFs the standard "your topic sucks" responses here on this forum.

1)No, just scroll down.
2)No, skip over them or use search better.
3)No.


Flame thing, no.


Anything else?

What about making it possible to post .gifv links just like the .gif links? .gifv load faster and are better quality.

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

.gifv and .webm integration is an important step forward. @OG Jeff
@Seabs can we get the large GIF sites' URLs censored or something?
