    Flaming section: Keep or Trash?

    It is clear that D3S is having a problem with flaming. Being a lot less active then during the summer, I do not have the time to look at every small case of flaming but I will try to actualy go to the core of the problem: the flaming wars section.



    Since D3S is somewhat a democratic community, I guess we could make all of the members vote for what they think about that section. I do however think that all opinions are not egual. When voting, please consider everything. I tried to make a small pros/cons of having such a section. Feel free to post more if you find others and I'll add them to my post if I consider them good.

    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.






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

    Yes with the 2 hour long conversation I had with Kamikaze . And lol, I just realised you are Endergamer (or something like that!)

    Please add some reason, that was just a personal brainstorm =). And if you vote for the third option, please say what would have to be the condition for there are already certain rules in the flaming wars section, but it is clear that we can't justfy any ban/infraction with them for they are ''subjective''

    And sorry for the edit lo, i had answered just like in the ''Ask blueisimba'' thread using the ----------- lol .

    if we do keep the flame section, it would need MUCH tighter rules and regulations.

    suggestions from me-
    1- only person who starts flame and person who it is to may post
    2- no posts count from flame section
    3- appoint a moderator just for flame section
    4- dont allow threads to go over certain number of pages

    As good as those rules sound, I think it can only work as an idea. How could we moderate all those posts? We can't even keep people from posting in other people's application thread....

    thats where the designated flame wars mod comes in (please not me ) he sits his ass there, and if someone posts, immediate deletion. everyone else would need to help too of course, but it could be done.

    But then, why couldn't they just settle it via PM? I mean, if only the two of them are aloud to post, then it becomes a bit like a private conversation, aka MSN...
