Aside from being an awesome TV show. I think this word holds a lot for us. Its my opinion that we need to reboot the website. Get a clean slate. My plan is, once all the bickering gets over. (if it does). Delete all the threads in IFU and Guest posting. Plus all the threads that have turned into a pissing contest. (like Dar V. Everyone else, but that is just one example.) A good cleansing will be nice for the site.
Id also like to delete all the threads in SD or GD which havent been productive at all. But the idea of productivity is very subjective so i dont know how that would work. That is why im making a poll.

Not a good idea.
when you do that you create a burnt offering. Empty forums take a LONG time to get a flow back. if you want to reboot the whole site you roll all forums into one.
ALL the bad thread will fade into obscurity, As people start making discussions you create a discussion forum.
as people start making tech threads you make a tech forum. etc etc.
Axing a forums content causes a void in the atmosphere of everyone who remembers them. It could cause the site to be hurt for years.

ALso, just a pointer for the inexperienced, you should stop letting PD fuck with your head Dr.M.

I have no problem with our actual members.

PD trolltards are not members in my book, and effectively no longer exist for me on the forum.

Actually, it is a lot more mature than repeating the same cycle over and over.

deleting is weak

# "If the Party could thrust its hand into the past and say this or that even, it never happened—
# "every record of everything you had ever done was wiped out, your one-time existence was denied and then forgotten. You were abolished, annihilated: vaporized
# "And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed—if all records told the same tale—then the lie passed into history and became truth. 'Who controls the past' ran the Party slogan, 'controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.'"

# "Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to have been correct; nor was any item of news, or any expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to remain on record. All history was a palimpsest, scraped clean and reinscribed exactly as often as was necessary."

I think this is like his anti-TGRR resistance movement back in his PD days.

Did those guys ever succeed in destroying the board like they said they would? I forget.

Except this is part of the same cycle. Its the "Daruko pretends to be mature and responsible part", which will no doubt devolve into...damn, what is the next step? Clark Nova? You can remember this better than me. Is it usually a spazz out, or is it flamebaiting?

No, but his reporting us to "the authorities" did. Good thing Lizzie sent me a file in a birthday cake, or else I'd be writing this from prison.

Everyone gets sick of his shit, he alienates the last few people sympathetic to him, then he accuses them of corruption and always secretly being under rogers mind control influence. When this blows up in his face he goes back to the apoligetic "I can change" routine and the cycle starts over.

This will be at least the sixth or seventh time we have seen this.

Yeah, it is. We should probably draw up and publish a chart for this. We can hand them out, like swine flu leaflets, so the population is aware of where we are at and what steps can be taken.

Epilogue:
In six months time when he tries begging the PD to take him back again he will claim that making shitloads of bad threads, importing drama into every thread and whining consistently was all him trolling the church of google, and what a good old time we all had...
That's if he survives his surgery which I sincerely hope he does not.

I hate the idea of the deleting threads. There's been some discussion (don't know how serious) floating around of renaming/recategorizing the sub-forums, which could work. However, to just delete everything and "make a clean start" doesn't make sense--we do have smart threads here (yes, even one or two in IFU); it'd be a pity to delete, nor do I think it would help matters any. Instead, as someone pointed out--what would have left and how would we re-establish the forum?

Dolores
May 14th, 2009, 02:05 AM
As Clark said, deleting everything would most likely kill the forum... you need those posts to show activity/prove interest to new visitors and members.

I'd keep it all, because more posts/activity indicates to visitors that it's an interesting site, tempting them to browse/register. Stupid drama threads eventually sink to the bottom once the drama queens chill out, but they still add to the numbers, and therefore the "curb appeal" of the forum.

Some subforum renames wouldn't be bad though.
