OK i am fairly new to this site but this is the only forum i go to since i can find nearly every thing that i am interested in so it make my life easier, but why are you banning the Vs thread is it just to open up some space and make the site smaller or is it just because YOU personally are sick of them and if you are sick of them then why not click and read something else. I don't respond to many threads like kenshin Vs vash but I do like to read them. Some of them widen your imagination, beside I am sure the idea for the tainted donuts AMV was started by a vash Vs spike thread. Its not like someone is forcing you to read the threads. And calling people stupid for using there imangaion is IMHO is the sign of real stupidity.


PS if you want to flame my opions and idea plz just send me private messages no need to fill this stick with hate mail over my ideas and opinions

I'm not going to flame you for your opinion. I'm going to flame you for your ignorance. An observant (intelligent) person would have noted that an ADMIN said that the vs. threads needed to be locked. [/flame]

As for the rest- The solution to all the vs threads can be found in this sentence: The character is as strong/powerfull as the creator intended. If they didn't meet in the series/movie/manga, etc, there's no point.

For the rest of you:

I may sound extreme when I spout such perfidity as I have before, but really, a firmer hand is what's needed here. I see you guys spout meaningless spam just for the fuck of it, mindlessly fountain the same shit for the past two years, whine and complain that there's no OT section, You guys act like you own this place and piss and moan when you don't get your way. I got a great idea! Govern yourselves so that the admins don't have to. Complaining about the spam and die policy? DON'T SPAM Whoa, whadda concept!

I'm no Mod, Admin, or any kind of formal staff. Yeah, I've stepped in and bluntly called people account for their stupidity. These past three months have been a learning experience for me. This place is degenerating into sewage, and you guys are complaining because the staff don't want that!

Instead of coughing a smokescreen of defensive excuses, let's find viable solutions.

I've opened a thread in Site Suggestions in regards to having rational discourse for solutions to this problem.

That same admin also said, if you have a protest, state it here. Read the entire thread before you flame people for doing just what our admin asked us to do. Thanks.

[quote="paizuri"]I'm going to lock them from now on. Really, what's the point in arguing over if Goku can beat Vash can beat Kenshin can beat Pikachu can beat your mailman if you drew him in an anime-style? The simple fact of the matter is that Batman always wins.

hmm....I really dont care if they lock the vs. thread. It is getting rather annoying. And I believe Cloud Clone is the one who started this trend. But I could be mistaken. ^_^

Seriously considering it, even though I've been here for a long, long time. I'd like to define my attempts here as merely an effort to improve upon the design of the 'Org. I haven't done much but run my mouth here on the forums... I've decided this go-round that I'd like to actually make a contribution that others can see, feel, and experience, rather than spout endless rhetoric. I'm sorry you feel so negative about what I have to say, but it's there. I want to have a hand in building something up, rather than doing the obvious- driving my post count higher. Is that so terrible a thing to ask, )v(ajin Koji?

HAHAHA....I was joking. I was somewhat hoping people would start hating for it. Unfortunately it did not work. I am terribly sad now.

Personally, I see it as this:

Most of the threads involved screaming fans of one series or another due to the title. This caused endless flame wars and quite a bit of stupidity. Now, there were a few intelligent posters in the ones I saw, but for the most part it turned to screaming fans fighting. This downward spiral to flames is delt with the same way all over the forums, by locking the thread. When many of these discussions turn this way, it becomes an easy alternative to lock them all. This attitude is best exemplified by the deletion of the OT forum. That forum behaved in much the same way, and was locked. While I don't really agree or disagree with the motion provided in this thread, I can say that I too might lock all similar threads if I were administrator and noticed a similar downward trend.

Rather than this sudden course of action, I personally think we might post a warning announcement at the top of this forum (and perhaps all forums) that clearly states all VS. threads will be locked if no positive trend in thier content is observed. In fact, as I recall it the same option was given for the OT forums, however indirect it was until after the fact.
