    This is a problem, do you not agree?

    This is ridiculous. The guy's made like 42 threads about his goddamn lovelife. This cannot go on. A moderator needs to go in there and either tell him that this is his final girl trouble thread, or close it and go back to one of his 41 other threads. This is the sort of trash that is hurting YJCC, not some nonsensical spammy threads meant for fun. It is people that want to be "cool" or "popular" and will do anything - no matter how idiotic - to reach their goal.

    Can I plz go ridcule him now? thnx

    I agree. Either ALL of those threads need to be closed or he should open ONE, "I'm a Loser now feel my pain!" thread.

    He's not the only one either... every day another "I need some help (girl advice)" thread pops up. We already have the Love Jungle and some other threads for those types of things... why make more?

    That's not the problem. The problem is several people (Valyn specifically) posting a NEW thread EVERY DAY (or damn near it).

    Agreed. But sometimes it just seems like the YJCC is turning into the love forum. And mostly it's all in a vain attempt to raise their popularity or get some compliments or other things to boost their ego. It just gets old to me.

    Yes, I agree... too many people or must I say, creating the same thread over and over again.

    there should be a limit to the number of threads a person can start in a short period of time. when one person starts 10 threads in JCC within a weeks time, it gets annoying and ridiculous.

    The thing with Community is that it's grown bigger. There were immature threads and redundant threads back when I was a newbie, but the population of the place was much smaller. Now, though, the number of members has greatly increased -- as has the number of "trouble" threads.

    Due to a sudden, drastic change in his work schedule, Kadue found his online time severely limitted and thought it best to resign as Administrator. We've been discussing his best replacement and have agreed on Padme Bra as the best choice, due to his JC experience and programming skills.


    Sorry to see you go, Kadue. :(

    PreacherBoy has JC experience and programming skills, too. I think you're setting yourself up for series of similar events. [face_plain]

    EDIT: Oh, and PBra's programming skills and technical abilities didn't seem to stop DP from getting his password from the Refuge and getting into the Mod Squad with it.

    The simple fact is that nothing will change until people stop being such self-absorbed attention hounds

    And this is the nature of the beast. No amount of moderating or 'discussion' or preaching to the choir will change any of that... that's just the type of person that is attracted to that forum

    Yes and no to both these points. Yes, many people are like that.

    No that doesnt mean that nothing can be done.

    AYBABTU, you want to point out the problem, but want to avoid a solution that doesnt involved public shaming.

    Lets make the JCC a place where these people cant do this. Lets turn the JCC into a vibrant forum where people dont get the ongoing opportunity to be selfish.

    Lets do that, and then we dont have to keep complaining about these people. If they dont like it, then they will go, and we will all be better off for it.

    Dont just accept it, and say 'what are you going to do?'.

    Accept it and fight it.

    If the JC wants to continue to be the number 1 site, then the administration has to be prepared to make a decision. Either attract the most people, and have the place go downhill, or reject a few, and make the forums stronger.

    Quality or quantity.

    At the moment, it seems like the administration wants to just keep up with the numbers, and ignore the quality.

    You've lost me a little, Dagsy. Are you talking about the Jedi Council forums as a whole now? Or are you just talking about YJCC?

    The JCC, which compromises a large part of the JC as a whole.

    For the JC to remain the best messageboard, it has to keep pushing itself to improve. That means improving the JCC.

    It means the JC administration, as a whole, needs to do something.

    Is that clearer? I dont know how else to put it.

    The JCC needs to be cleaned up.

    The JC as a whole needs it cleaned up.

    Though I see some truth to that statement, I disagree that there shouldn't at least be an effort to keep things reasonable. Otherwise you're just writing off an entire forum as a haven for attention mongers.

    I have to agree with Darth_Dagsy. It does need to be cleaned up. Maybe there needs to be more Mods? Like in the Rp. I only know of 1 Rp mod. Maybe there needs to be 2 or 3 in each group. That would give more coverage! Just a thought.

    Uhhh, thanks for the agreement jediknight88, but unfortunately more mods isnt the answer.

    More mods will only add confusion.

    Better policy is needed first. After we have the right policies, then the administration can decide if more mods are required.

    Its all about policy...direction.

    I agree with AYBABTU completely on this one. More and more often nowadays, when I enter the JCC, I see few threads that really attract my attention and are worth posting in. I honestly remember times, maybe 6 months ago, or a year ago, when there were maybe 10 threads on the front page out of 50 that were worth posting to. Those times are really far away now.

    Dagsy is right. Something needs to be done, and I think that if we have to compromise on quantity, then please do it. The present state of the JCC is really something that we are all not very pleased about. The only way for the JC to remain the no. 1 SW forum is if we keep the standards high in all forums.

    i also agree w/ AYBABTU, there's too many threads that really add up to nothing & i don't think the All hail AYBABTU thread helps anything.

    Actually, I think a cult devoted to Kool-Aid, black shirts, white shoes, and riding on a comet is exactly what the Community forum needs.

    AYBABTU?

    Nah, that isn't nearly as bad as "goodbye" threads where the person claims to be leaving forever, but comes back a month later.

    Oh come on. It is just some fun that people want to have. That is what YJCC is about. FUN.

    AHAYBABTU!

    ?[face_plain] "A series of similar events" - what exactly are you talking about there? Being rather cryptic, aren't you. Hm.

    EDIT: Oh, and PBra's programming skills and technical abilities didn't seem to stop DP from getting his password from the Refuge and getting into the Mod Squad with it.

    Oh that's a load of hooey. We all know DP had interesting ways to do things and no current (at that time) moderators were able with their technical and programming abilities to spot the exact problems.
