Ha, what rules?

In all seriousness, all YCM Rules apply, so still no flaming and etc., except for the rule against spamming. Feel free to spam however you want, but don't be a complete idiot and make a fool out of yourself.

 

The only rules in here are basically:

  1. 1 topic PER HOUR
  2. Please respect the [Serious] tag.
  3. No "rep every post" or "rep almost every post" threads.
  4. Do not post the same copied post in more than three threads per hour. (Rewording of rule may be necessary; please don't try to "cleverly" work around it by changing a single letter and other such things.)

Basically here to prevent this place from turning into a massive spamhole.

 

Note that if this place goes to shit, it's getting shut down.

Post count is disabled in this forum.

RULES UPDATE: You can only make one thread per hour.

You can put a [Serious] tag in the title and ask for legit discussion and/or put down rules for the thread.

Let's talk about AMA's.

 

YCM has been on this non-stop trend of AMA's.  It's become a very popular, often recurring part of Miscellaneous.  I'd like to take it a bit further and elevate AMA's because they're so healthy for this section.  How would you all feel about a "Member of the Moment"?

 

It would be totally selected at random and we could highlight a member for a short period of time.  We pin a thread, blow up their ego, and pester them to death.  I'm thinking of maybe creating a custom user group for that member while they're "Member of the Moment" and maybe getting one of our generous GFX members to make a nice logo and banner.  If possible, I'd like to turn this into a sort of interview process where via voice-chat (or text chat if preferred) I sit down with our member of the week and sort of get a hands-on experience.

 

In addition, if you have any comments or suggestions for Misc. at this time, please feel free to add them.

I just worry it won't work in practice. It requires a lot of community input for the first half, and voice chat interviews have had iffy success over time. I'd love to see it succeed, tho.

seems like a fine enough idea in concept, but honestly I see it going one of two ways:

1: It feels forced, and gets old quickly.
2: Nobody will give a shit, since quite honestly I doubt most people here care about who is on the other side of the screen. It sounds awful, but it's the reality of the situation.

Yeah it's true we did try something similar like this in the past.  I recall (I think it was Fusion) who did a video within the last year in a Spider-man costume where he took questions and it was fantastic.  I'd love to build off of that and give y'all something to look forward to.

 

We don't have to put it on a super tight schedule either, because it won't always work for everyone, but I would certainly want to give it a shot.

But you're right.  It's not something that everyone can or will be interested in.  Right now, it's mostly a pitch to gauge reactions and interest.  Let's see where it goes.

I see 0 harm in trying it, if it gets stale, it'll self regulate and kill itself

Precisely my thought.  I can only run it as long as it has interest in it.  If nothing else it will fade off quietly into the night unlike my ex.

Yup it's one of those things you can't force to work. That's why I like it. It's not "too big to fail"

I think custom member group might be a bit much, especially since some might not want it, but other than that it seems fair.

 

Though AMAs could almost be their own section.

 

Also while you're at it, maybe unpin the Mod AMA and Marriage thread as they have been inactive for a loooong time.

I mean, Night, Tormey, Smear and I are the only active-ish members of Graphics anymore. I think that the answer for it is a unanimous "no" for our participation, but this sounds cool.

I was thinking that in order to get the ball rolling, I could do the first AMA myself.  I'll go and sticky it then do a recording of me answering the questions.  Maybe I'll bring on my sister to help me out.  I'll make it no holds barred so anything can be asked, no matter how painful.  See if I can't incentivize y'all a lil bit.

Political posts will no longer be tolerated in Miscellaneous.  Post it in General, or post it in Debates.

Not every political post merits a debate. Some are just memes. Did you even think this through?

Of course not. Doesn't answer the question if you even thought it through. Guess the next 10 days are gonna be fun

 

This is an absolute shit PR job btw. I'd love for you to show us some stats on how many political MISC posts have been made. And of those, how many have resulted in problems. And how those two numbers compare to misc posts in general

 

Also I trust (lol) that the mod team will have firm guidelines on what "political" posts consist of

Perhaps it would be better to have "Debate topics" be not in Misc?

Partially to get more activity in Debates and partially to let those who don't want to deal with that stuff not stumble across it. (Because it can be frustrating to be chilling in Misc and suddenly arguments)
