off OU topic distractions
« on: September 20, 2008, 10:41:21 PM »
 :( I find the 911, aliens, and other not OU topics distracting, and they rapidly push
the OU topics off/down the front page and forum lists. While interesting and informative
at times, they really defeat the purpose of getting and keeping as many people as
possible engaged with working on OU solutions. We will lose good people.

The new section for "We can't live without the truth" is just encouraging more of the
same problem.

 ??? I have no solution, just recognizing an issue.

Yes tak, I agree, OU related stuff should get higher priority.

There are a few solutions I have thought of, this is my favourite so far:

Have two recent posts lists on the homepage, the top list contains threads directly related to free energy research, the lower list contains all other threads.

This would probably require modification of the forum software, but that is doable because Stefan uses SMF forum software which is open source.

I like the two lists idea, or maybe in our PROFILE we could select forums to view, which might even
reduce bandwith as sometimes there would be less to display.

And the more we talk about this, the more it merges into the same problem ......  ;D

LOL, don't worry about this thread knocking free energy threads off the top spot, a lot of OU members would I'm sure be thankful if ideas like this get implemented.

Not that I've got anything against political views and discussions, I just think this forum should give priority to free energy related stuff.

It's a new MIB tactic. They don't have to know anything about science or OU, they just need to be
able to type and distract. The forum list of 500 posts right now is 35% off topic, and if you add in
all the other useless posts it's probably only 50% OU.  >:(

No wonder you don't see the 'regulars' around here much anymore.

yes i agree with giving priority to free energy related stuff, it should be on top of things here.

also don't let people change the topic of threads because it can get annoying when viewing recent posts list, because it looks like a new started thread which in reality is not. some of those thread i have no interest to begin with and can be a waste of time.

Maybe we can cast a vote on these things using the forum voting system.

Not really If you logged in under "Off Topic distractions Directory" then it does not matter what it says in the Heading
as long as it relates to the Subject Matter. Its just another Subject Title. I see nothing wrong with that.
Look at the Energetic Forum it is up to you what you want to call your posting as long as it stays in that Directory.
If you were changing the Directory I would agree with you.

Yep, gotta say I come here mainly to read what's up, OU-wise, and though the off-topic stuff is often a welcome distraction, imo, it shouldn't feature in the New Posts list at all - they are just too distracting!  Besides, there are other forums entirely devoted to this stuff.

btw, someone just mentioned some OU forum stats. - is it possible to monitor overall web-traffic here?  I'm specifically interested in knowing how much of a fall-off there has been since the "Roll on..." thread died when AQ left the building...

there are some topics inside directories that doesn't interest me and some do interest me. and when people change the tittle it looks like a new topic in the recent posts making me think its a new thread when its not, wasting my time. sure the directory's name don't change but there are many topics within the directory. does anyone else see what i am saying?

I see what you're saying. And I understand that you might temporarily lose track of a thread because of it being renamed.

Trouble is, if you prevent topic titles from being changed then that would be removing funtionality that is useful. I have often seen subject titles get changed because the first title was misleading, after being changed the title then made sense. For example the eminent Dr. Stiffler (great guy) has the phrase "self running" in his thread about the SEC exciter, however it has never been shown to self run, so IMHO it should really be changed.

I believe it's about time for an Admin to start regulating these topics/discussions as well.    I'm not trying to disrespect the folks who want to discuss such topics, but I think it shouldn't be discussed on this site.   I also think these topics might even scare off some insightful people, and discredit (from a scientific standpoint) the great work done here already.  I'm not saying these guys are intentionally trying to do this.. But it is happening.

Stefan,

I am a bit alarmed that you intend on deleting after one week the 3 or 4 threads dealing with Rosemary Ainslie's circuit.  :o

I agree that there are many posts that could/should be deleted, but the fact remains that the threads were virtually un-moderated, and for that they deteriorated to the level they are at today.

It would be a shame to lose all those posts that are genuine and on-topic. May I suggest that the worst that be done is to delete all non-pertinent, non-technical posts and leave the threads locked, or just leave them locked as they are.

I don't think it is right to delete them in their entirety, unless of course the thread has no technical merit whatsoever.

Hi 99
I think the main problem is all the arguments and fighting,this is a problem that occurs on this forum on a regular basis,anyway at least once a month.
Maybe there should be a new rule that all arguments must be in PM's or they will be deleted,but then there is the problem of policing it  ::)
I am guilty of posting off topic, but I try my best to avoid an argument, I hope.

i have to say i am in complete agreement with you here poynt.

exactly. it went the way it went because stefan doesn't appear to have the time or desire to aquire decent, consistent moderation (with the exception of pirate) or do it himself, so sweeping it all under the rug with a delete is his "solution"... and that's lame.

It would be a shame to lose all those posts that are genuine and on-topic. May I suggest that the worst that be done is to delete all non-pertinent, non-technical posts and leave the threads locked, or just leave them locked as they are.
yeah the original ainslie thread has been locked for how long now? (since july 18, 2010) and he posted in that thread that it will be deleted as well... WTF?

I don't think it is right to delete them in their entirety, unless of course the thread has no technical merit whatsoever.

.99
if this were the case 99% of all threads on this forum should be deleted.

@stefan
what kind of confidence can you give to anyone who is about to post their hard work here that some group of malcontents won't troll and flame their thread all the while whinging to the administration until you just decide to delete their work in its entirety?

  @poynt99 & willby;

   Thank's for bringing this up. It's so disappointing that pepole from other forum's with clear agendas can successfully influence Stephan with ease and silence a discussion of a technology regardless of it's merits of a successful outcome. It my be winter and there is no heater that he knows of but is that what this forum is for? Is only proven technology allowed here? If that's the case some one has a lot of deleting to do.
