Look, we all know that a big chunk of the forum has been pretty crap for a while now and we all know a big part of the reason for that. So, with that I'm mind, I'm doing some things that will be in effect for the next 3 months.

1. Several posters will be banned. [if you have someone specific in mind and are wondering if they're included, the answer is "yes"]

2. Off-topic is done. Nobody cares about NeoGAF and Reset anymore. If you see something interesting on reddit, post it in the meme thread. Otherwise, just chuckle to yourself and move on.  We will try the other forums thread in the members-only sub-forum.  Don't fuck it up!  http://www.thebore.com/forum/index.php?topic=48300.0

3. Maybe a few other minor things here and there.

This will be in effect for 3 months. If at the end of the 3 months everyone hates this and wants things to go back to how they were, I'll undo everything and leave the board for good.

My resetti consumption has definitely and thankfully decreased tremendously. Still I wouldn't have wanted to miss hilarious shitshows like the Cerium bail.  :doge  But I get it, the thread seems to have multiplied Nintex types and even I thought it was getting uncomfortable. :trumps

Something major like that is fine to have its own thread. We're just done with all the "haha look at this rando being hypocritical or stupid on another forum" posts.

This is smart. You're doing both those people and the community a favor even if it doesn't seem like it.

I won't name names, but I know for a fact that one of those people is severely mentally ill and letting them go unchecked here as a dominant personality does far more harm than good. Severing is the right choice and I truly hope they get the help they need

Not gonna step on your toes, but if people want that kind of thread back, it will go in the closed subforum, hidden away from everyone else who doesn't or no longer cares.  But only if it's agreed on.

No, it's garbage posters being given too much free reign for too long and things need to change. Discord has nothing to do with it.

Also, whilst I add to the target on my back, fuckers like Shosta gloating over peoples bans is pretty fucked. Like just because the discord failed as you all failed to deal with the abuse that glenda dished out but couldn't receive isn't a victory, just what the fuck happened in discord? Also please delete my shit in there, which I know you hadn't done.

in my personal opinion I feel that it's important to have the ability to talk about such things, but maybe it doesn't need a dedicated thread, I feel like it could go in bad vibes where I'm sure a lot of people already don't go anyway

with certain people gone I'm sure a lot of things that would've been said about it would be reduced regardless

I know it's not a democracy and any subject that mods would want to ban is up to them, but I feel like this gets into territory where you're like, ok people (not even at era) are trying to cancel this game because the tits are too big, are we able to talk about that since it's adjacent? jason schreir has dug himself a real twitter hole this time, does this get a new thread somewhere? nft bros are being morons, oh wait now the people making fun of them are being morons

there's always something weird going on and I'm not sure what's too "era adjacent" and what isn't, and I don't like the idea of having to be on tiptoes or risk being banned

if you'll just close topics you don't like that's fine

I don't even know if I would be posting about these things, I honestly found the thread to be a good internet news source in general

the shit thread should have stayed in the "secret forum" there for those who want it, and out the way for the rest.

I get that it brings a vibe from certain posters just shitting the place up, but I think a single thread is far better than multiple "lmao, look at this dork" - then mod locks

also for me it wasn't all "point and laugh" in a mean-spirited way, it was sort of a thread to respond to all the weirdness from across the internet, because you can't or won't respond to their face, not because you're being abusive but because you're trying to be thoughtful/reasonable in a place where reason isn't welcome

kind of work through how I feel about shit but also have transhumans and such steering back to not going too far, and all that

You should come back. There's been literally no drama in there for months, and I think everyone, that certain poster included, would just move on like nothing happened.

If you wanna talk about a specific thing mentioned on Re or Twitter, you can make a thread about it. As long as it's for actually talking about the issue and not just dogpiling, fine. But we're well past the point where it makes sense to have a dedicated thread for every stupid or hypocritical thing some rando on another forum says.

I'm not against it being brought back and placed in there.  I think it makes more sense.

We had a single thread to keep all that shit contained, though.  I prefer that to multiple topics.  Again I think we should just have a thread in the private forum so nobody who wants to see that shit has to go there.
