I would make it easier for posters to keep track of their posts and replies, make the search function work well, and in a poster's profile, show a list of their threads.

It's no secret I object to thread closures when I don't see a justifiable reason, and none is given. Seems to me labels like 'spam' 'troll' and 'shill' are used as excuses to exercise unnecessary control, to the detriment of the fundamental value of free speech.
Many times, a thread that starts off as a possible 'hate speech' turns around to become a valid and fascinating commentary if allowed the space to develop.

These criticisms aside (constructive ones, I'm not bashing),
LOP is a great forum, and I appreciate all you and mods do, Disturbed.

Take donations to build the largest and most powerful trebuchet in the world, capable of catapulting people to the Moon.

Oh wow, I'm down with this!

Trebuchet, FTW!

Agreed, a space-trebuchet is a winner. chuckle

RE: How would you run LOP?
I would introduce a "flag for later" option that would show up in a list on your usercp (sorry anons) so if you wanted to give a thread/post a more thorough read later you could do that instead of bumping for later viewing. Sometimes when you bump for later, you make enough posts after so it pushes it out of your latest posts area.

I'd let anything go, free speech, no rules. Except, no porn, and no gore.

RE: How would you run LOP?
Overall this site is run well.

All mods should have a set of guidelines to follow & conform to the standards of proper use for daily functionality. There is only one ]['ve noticed that does not, & openly states will not, conform to the net standards.

The mods do a great job, with that one exception.

There are too many racial based threads here, but most are handled quickly.

There are too many LOP & mod bashing threads here. ]['d handle those with bans/delete user. If they don't like the scene, they need a change.

The main issue that isn't handled very well IMHO is the troll users. LOP is one of the worst troll allowed forums that ]['ve used in 25yrs. Appears to be an accepted standard here. Could be a major reason many others users do not login/frequent LOP as much or not at all.

There is always a trade off in these issues, and the owner/mods have to choose which they would rather have. Not choosing,.... is choosing. You end up losing valued users by allowing the trolls to stay as a general rule.

][][Good Luck][[

RE: How would you run LOP?
Since you asked. . .

Personally, I think the mods are doing a good job.

I would make some requirement that would stop guests for starting posts for the purpose of spamming a link, like a youtube video. Either require that guests have 200 words along with a link, or guests can't create new threads -- something, anything.

Usually when a registered member does this, the title explains the video adequately, or it is a worthwhile post.

I would also like to see less of the bullshit threads like "my dick hurts" or "my gf has three nipples" and crap like that. When I see those threads and I report them, almost always it's a guest post. I would say that by making it more difficult for them to create posts would cut down on that.

If it was up to me, guests would not be allowed to create new threads.

Free speech, yet no porn. Porn isn't free speech?

I would tend to agree. But again, as a site admin... do you
really want to lose +/- half of your users in one shot?

RE: How would you run LOP?
Don't ban words.

Get away from the political correct bullshit.

Hate speech = Bullshit.

Inappropriate, racially biased or harassing if fine.

But saying something is bad because a certain minority group says it's a bad "offensive" word is pure lunacy.

All words should be free to be used especially in an academic sense.

And if one group is going to be allowed to be abused then all groups should be open to abuse.

Moderators taking shit personally and banning people or not banning people because of "timing" is BS as well.

There's some shit I will throw against your wall.

If some sticks good if not oh well.
