GTAForums Q&A

Recommended Posts

The Deadite

Will we ever see an increase in posting standards? 4 years ago half the posts in this topic would warrant a warn or a temp, especially single-image replies. I miss the old GTAF. I think the mods are too lax now. Maybe the userbase has grown too much/quickly and can't be controlled. Maybe there need to be more mods?

Can you make Edmachine a mod/Administrator?

The Newfag/n00b scum needs to be keep at bay.

They have private forums for staff, plus there's probably a staff IRC. Almost certain there isn't a live chat on here for anyone.

it's probably meant to be just the staff answering but "the cops can be buggered" and all that

If we told you, we'd have to kill you.

I don't think you can completely blame the staff for that. We're dishing out warnings all the time and there are always staff online. The Internet has just changed or as members we've just got older (and new generations getting younger) - look at the posting standards of comments on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, they are diabolical and unfortunately they promote quick spammy replies, and that seems to be spreading to forums like this. Even if we were stricter, people would still do it. Gen Chat has always been more lax anyway, but I agree we need to clamp down on single-image replies. Some people spend so much time posting here like it's Twitter that they don't realise it becomes noticeable and then the standard starts to drop.

Do you guys think a limit on the number of posts per day could help combat spammers?

I don't think it's a good idea to limit discussion of good members because of a few people you don't like or think post too often.

I rarely see 'good members' going above 20 posts per day anyways. :p

 

I agree that it might limit discussion though.

Let's say an admin/mod went rouge and wanted to ban all the other mods and take the site for themselves. Could they do it? Who's to stop them?

IIRC mods can't give other mods bans.

Does AdBlock f*ck with the forums as far as revenue goes? I'm willing to disable it.

Mods are chosen for a reason.

Yes. Quite a lot.

So I'm guessing we won't see a new theme until then? :)

We have a few planned but the new layout is different and even this one will have to be reskinned.

make total destroy

Boston and New York are approximately 280 miles apart. One Train leaves Boston traveling towards New York at an average speed of 80mph. Another train leaves New York at the same time traveling toward Boston at an average speed of 60 mph. (a) How long will it take them to meet? (b) How far has each train traveled when they meet?

Here's a sort of, jokey question. Not insinuating that you guys don't do anything because clearly you do a lot, but when you're not doing anything, what's your favorite way to do nothing?

Also, who is in charge of designing skins here? I've loved this places layouts since I first came here. Granted, I think they've only changed during the holidays and once overall since I joined, but they're very clean and well done. Is it a group of people, or just one person?

That's a pretty interesting question. I'm gonna guess it's a few admins that help make the themes, since they have to even code a few things in along with the design.. but if I'm wrong feel free to correct me.

Wow, 10 years. Thanks for making me feel old. No, actually, I feel quite young. But sort of old, in the forum sense. But young. :sarcasm: But, seriously, though, nothing happened when I pressed the button. Why?!

 

@Kirsty: Yeah, I know the Internet as a whole has been getting dumber, with more people having access to it, including, obviously, young, careless pre-teens, but still... Eh, I can dream, though, right?
