    [Suggestion] Flame board.

    I think there should be some much larger restrictions on the flame board, because while I know it IS the place where your supposed to be able to flame, it DOES get out of hand.

    Some strict out limits, like flame posts can not exeed a page of posts (or like 10 posts) no matter what, and reposting a flame is worth an infraction.
    And for members like you can only post a certain about in the flame board every day or week or so.

    I think these are thoughts that most would benefit from, thats all

    While it does get out of hand, it's the Flame Board where people can just let loose what's on their minds and hopefully sort it out. But I do think that many try to get into the topics at hand when they should only be between the OP and the person their flaming.

    instead of restrictions, i vote for no post count in the flame wars area, seeing as people spam it constantly anyway.

    That's a very interesting idea Volund. I however wonder if people will tend to post more in General Chat if they know their post count won't get higher if they post in the flame wars.






    If you got any request, about anything, feel free to PM me. I'm not as bitchy as I seem lol.

    I think we should be a lot harder on flamers. If I had time, I would evaluate the whole drama but God, school takes too much of my time.

    I tried to make a small pros/cons comparision about having a flame wars sections.

    Pros:
    -There is a reason why almost all forums have one.
    -People can settle down their problems there.
    -If you don't like seeing immature kid argue about stupid things, all you have to do is never visit that particular section.
    -It keeps people from flaming in other place.

    Cons:
    -A flame wars section can CREATE problems. In fact, if you do not have a place to flame, you won't.
    -There is no particular limit to when flaming gets out of hand and this so, it is hard to justify bans.
    -People can settle their problem on MSN/PM so why have such a section?
    -Such a section may attract immature members.
