Does like ups and like downs that i get add up on my Leaderboards, is that how it works pls?

Basically, yeah. The site tracks leaderboard activity by week and year. If you go to the **Leaderboards ** link on the main navigation, that is bang up to date. Some of the widgets on the sides lag behind a little.

Some of the Badge awards come with a point value too. Photogenic is worth 20 points, for example.

i don’t think pap is v.fussed bout fractions, if someone does a dumb post he would sooner we just shouted at them and posted up their personal details, like adults.

I’m more worried bout my £5. I have sent £5 to every pap in the phonebook to be on safe side, but then i realised he’s prob not even in my phonebook cos i live in Birmingham and paps are in Liverpool.

Bear, great post about Umbraco :slight_smile:


#24

Or is it?

Hey I wonder what pap will be doing for fractions? Do they exist? Who will be first to get one?

They won’t exist. I’ve always had a reasonable amount of faith in a forum’s ability to self-police. Ok, you still get trolls and suchlike, but they’re a decent example of forum self-policing. Most of them were brought around not by mods, but by other posters. Better that way.

If someone is completely out of order, making serious threats of harm or menace or whatever, they’d be gone. Vamoosed. But that’s the level I want to moderate at.

There is no swear filter, and no expectation that people are going to constrain themselves to sanitised language. I’ve got two girls of my own, ta. It’s not my job to be some kind of low-rent Mary Whitehouse figure that tells people that they can’t say fuck, and I really don’t have the same hangups about that sort of stuff as others might have.

I’ll genuinely assist anyone who feels they’ve got a genuine problem with content or posters on here, but I won’t be moderating on behalf of the easily offended.

I’ve voted for you just so you can get a brief experience of being on top of me.


#27

#29

SITE SUGGESTION: The way it keeps shoving me back to the beginning and i have to “load more posts”, is gonna get v.annoying on long threads. I.e. i used to post on another forum that had a v.long thread about fish + it would prob take you all day to get to the end.


#33

Wah, I did just do a post on this, but ended up deleting because I thought I’d double posted.

No word is uber-dangerous on its own; the worst swear words can be fine in context. The context here is a perfect example. You’ve used the word to ask if you’re allowed to say it. That’s fine.

Doing a Meeks out of Silence of the Lambs is not fine. Nor would I generally approve of people calling each other cunts all the time. But in the correct place for the correct reason, why the fuck not?

I’m more uncomfortable with having people here that get upset at sight of the word, than sight of the word myself.


#34

I don’t mind swear words, but I’d be too embarrassed to write one without an * in the middle!

Yeah, I’ve just noticed that myself. Paging is probably the way to go (as opposed to those infinite scrollers like you get on Eurogamer, et all).

Jumping to your last viewed post could be a decent alternative to that.


#36

I use TSW with the posts displayed in reverse order. i. e. latest post at the top. This would also get around the problem Bear is talking about where the posts start at the beginning every time.

Perhaps also position posts in a thread at the last read post position?


#37

erm i’m not a computer but couldn’t it default show the last 30 posts rather than first 30 posts, and you have to click for earlier posts rather than later?


#38

For badges, can we define some new ones, with more interesting tasks? For example, attend a post game drink: 50 points.


#39

Eat a banana with the skin on; 5 pts


#40

Post a naked pic of yourself: 500 points.
