Push this, I dare you!
November 20th 2006, 23:44 CET by Greg

The fearless overlords are preventing wanton destruction of this site by giving the masses a trickle of topics which clearly only they have interest in.

So, I dare you to capitulate to me and force this topic in!

yeah, you're right gabe, the sanctity of topics is definitely at stake here. I was completely off base trying to submit something I considered interesting.

I couldn't find anything about him talking about the sanctity of topics. He just said that if you want him to push topics in, he's not going to push topics that he isn't interested in.

It's a fair trade if you don't want the system to work for you.

Oh dear god, we just did this.

I argued we have 5 dead topics, how is one mildly interesting topic going to hurt anything... at least it'll be SOMETHING else to talk about. Gabe said it wasn't even mildly interesting, wait for it be voted in (yeah right) and said no. I said I learned a valuable lesson, not to post topics on PC. You posted this topic, Gabe pushed it through.

Assholish move on his part, just to prove a point. I get it. Whatever, I won't post anymore topics. Done. Also, lwf, no more complaining about me linking to my blog, mkay?

Let's talk about the system. This sucks? What's better? etc.

You originally attributed the quote to the wrong person, even. That the lesson you learned is to just not post any topic is interesting.

And yet, who defines interesting? Not me. I found it interesting my topicing it.

Bah whatever.

Topics are fairly useless, except as a rudimentary system of conversation separation.  They might easily be arranged horizontally as tabs and marked permanently "Conversation track #1, Conversation Track #2, Conversation Track #3, Conversation Track #4", and "Sports", with perhaps some sort of "Hot topics" or "recent comments" or "Posited: Blah.  Discuss in the Sports track" sidebar kind of thing linking to the appropriate track. At best topic headers have a very mild discussion sparking effect, but I emphasize mild.

The actual topic submission process is broken, obviously.  It lacks transparency, and feedback, it's essentially a public email sent to Gabe, and even then, as far as I can tell it's more efficient to simply poke Gabe in IRC.  Which is not a slam on Gabe, it just is what it is.

Ultimately there's no "fix" for it (assuming for the purposes of this discussion that it needs fixing) that can be implemented without changing the site in ways that I assume just aren't possible/likely, as far as Morn goes.  Again, not a slam, just how it appears to be.

So..yeah.  How about that PS3.  It's LOLHuge.  But wicked quiet.

It's not always more efficient to poke Gabe in IRC. :P

Gabe, the reason this perturbed (maybe a bit strong) is that all I hear is when I ask for fixes on the topic crap is, "just tell me". So I did that. And you decided it wasn't worthy because you don't like PC topics. Silly. I really will skip ever submitting a topic again. Not that that's a huge loss, it just is.

I don't think it's that big a deal. Someone runs this site and it isn't us, so I'm fine with the person running said site deciding which topics get pushed in, especially then they have little to no bearing on the actual discussion. If a topic doesn't get voted in then the topic starter will just do what you did and post it in another thread anyway and it'll get discussed regardless. If I were running this site I'd probably refuse to push topics I didn't think were interesting either. And if I submitted a topic and it didn't get pushed because the pusher didn't feel it was interesting enough I'd just find another topic to submit instead of refusing to submit one ever again out of petulance.

I already said I'm grumpy today... and yeah, she did pass judgment... when you say someone is acting a certain way, you're passing judgment on their actions.

Passing judgement on an action would be saying, "you're a horrible person for doing this."

Matt, me saying you're cranky is making an observation. Saying you're a horrible person for being cranky is making a judgement. I did the former, not the latter.

No, actually this is making an observation about one's mental state. You tend to use the word "judgement" a lot in an almost religious but what I feel is really erroneous context. You tend to take things very personally that are merely observations and that's when you move from the objective "observation" to the erroneous subjective "judgement".

Yes I did, because you're being really silly and cranky and oversensitive and you seem to think that because you said you were that it's okay to continue acting this way. Stop it.

I could see why. I really like the bands involved and knew a lot of the back story, so it was more of a visualization of stuff I had already read about. I did play it with subtitles because, MAN, them accents was heavy.

Normally it'd be even odds between McBain and None-1a to be first to tell you that video you linked is just another example of an energy medium and not a source, but McBain's been a bit quiet just recently so my money is on None-1a.

I think it's terrible, in that "*shrug*, eh well, life goes on *rolls eyes*" kind of way, that we have moderators acting out according to their own interests. But that's because I see the voting system as broken and Gabe as someone who can help us until.. uh.. PC7.0 arrives?
..
Haha okay, saying it out loud makes me realise how foolishly naive it was to think like that.

Pushing stuff through based on own interests is the fun thing to do after all, so it's not all that surprising.


So I'm basically with Matt (except the bitchy whining rants that followed Caryn's remark), except I also don't really care and it's not surprising and I'm just here to boost my post-count anyway.
