I stopped posting much when it just got to be snarky and trolls abound. Couple that with my waining interest in mma. Meh.
That’s a fair point, perhaps many of the older members that made this place interesting maybe “Aged out” of the OG? However, I would think that at least some of the newer members would have picked up the slack so I don’t think that really explains why this place is dying.
seems a good portion of the newer members either suck or are just old posters that got banned for being trolls (mostly this)
there's still a lot of good posters here but not nearly as many as there used to be.
I have to agree, but that does say something about this place when the trolls never leave.
The OG is a very unique place on the internet and its telling when you see some active members have been here close to 20 years.
Perhaps perfecting and bringing back the Karma system will be a step in the right direction to getting this place back on track. It’s a delicate balance though as once people realize the karma system can be exploited then it becomes a real problem.
Trolls will always troll so perhaps a formula that takes into account your own karma when you up/down vote someone? Like someone who is a huge troll or new member when they up/down vote someone it is only worth a percentage whereas a member who has been here for many years who’s karma rating is way in the green’s vote automatically has much more weight to it?
I don’t know, just spitballing here.
Despite the influx of shitty posters I still really enjoy this place. Even with the huge amount of political threads they do provide me with plenty of laughs.
I don't know what the right answer(s) would be to make this place better. I think bringing back arrows would be a good start. But then people will bitch that posters are just making threads to gain votes (like food threads, more hot bish threads etc) which I've personally missed.
Hope tinycrawler is doing well sir
