    I'm seeing a LOT of bad/weird/annoying/offensive threads/pots all over the OT made by a lot of new members who think that they're humorous.

    I propose a 50 or 100 post limit to be able to post on the OT. I haven't seen a single infracted post OUTSIDE of the OT at all. At the least, the limit should apply to posting THREADS.

    I have seen plenty outside the OT, (infractions.)

    And maybe a monthly limit of 75 Posts in the OT, and 15 Threads. But i don't think it's totally needed.

    This^ is also true. Maybe threads in the OT undergo an inspection before they're entered. If its a stupid thread, offensive ect, it isn't allowed it.

    This would mean a new type of account, I'm thinking: OT Thread Approver.

    I'd be happy to volunteer for this, as i am sure some others would.

    Interesting thread topic though. I agree with you.

    Yea we absolutely need this. Come on! Why do we need to know how people get in the shower etc. It would be better if under 100 posts that a thread needs to be approved by a mod but that would be to much work for the mods i think.

    As for not seeing single infraction outside OT, I'm afraid that I may have broken that rule.

    I feel that we don't really need a 'filter', as long as people are responsible, if they're not, they get disciplined. :S. That's how it is. The system works fine as it is.

    not sure, i mean yes a lot of the stuff in OT is crap, but what about the stuff that isnt crap but mayb not liked by the guy who checks it, like our slender man thread, what if we made a new one with the pics in the firat post and it is some kid that checks it at 9 o'clock, gets scared sh*tless and doesnt allow it? they kind of have to look at it no matter what it is

    r.e. slender man... it's all made up of course (and well done) but we have a lot of young members on-site so anything of this nature should have a more serious overtone rather than just waffling and stirring.

    r.e. the OT forum. I hate the place but I'd rather see all those threads confined to one area than spread over the forums. Plus it's in our nature to want to socialise, vent or just show off - and the OT forum provides the outlet. If a thread is not approved of by the moderating team it will be closed or even deleted. If you think a thread or post should be assessed then please report it.

    if we made a slender man thing that had at the top in big red letters DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU GET SCARED EASY could we make a new fact thread?

    @OT i dunno i like the OT but agree that some threads are a bit out of control

    The OT isn't horrible, I mean, there is the occasional spam and childishness, but thats what I love most about the forum. We all have the same sense of humor (for the most part), And this humor stems from places like the big 4C, CollegeHumor, and StumbleUpon. The OT is a place for us to post the funny things we find online, we know it shouldn't be pron, racist, political, or just in bad taste (although the bad taste gets through a lot, usually awesomely). We usually stay within the OT rules, but sometimes the occasional Buhmillionare comes in and messes it up. So if the 4C isn't your type of humor, then just don't go to the OT and stick to the regular iPod stuff.
