This is unofficial because it's just to get some rough thoughts from the denizens of the flood forum. It's not a poll, I just want to hear what you guys think. I've put my rough opinion on this in the spoiler but post your own thoughts before reading it.

My personal opinion aside, as a part of the discussion what do you think is wrong with the flood board (if anything)?
And what would you do to fix it?

Psy's opinion
Currently serious is under the knife because there is the idea to cut bits out of there to save the flood from being a truly dire place, but I'm not seeing this. Nor do I think that sending stuff like maths threads or science threads here is going to make anything better.

It would be nice to see shitposts with literally no discussion value be axed.

Just posting a picture with a "lol" or something isn't really worth anyone's time.

Threads with no discussion value. Like the Elegiac "i'm going to bed" threads, really pointless. I know this isn't some official forum, and everyone is here to have a good time, but discussion is nice, and spam threads get old quickly.

Just because I'm waving the serious flag, doesn't mean I'm throwing the flood under the bus <_<
I love the funposting just as much as anyone, well most of them anyway.

No funners can remove kebab for all I care.

You will find out who you are not a thousand times, before you ever discover who you are. I hope you find peace in yourself and learn to love instead of hate.
The shitposting. Threads with no discussion value should just be deleted. You mods don't need to be so lenient.

Stupidity leaks like random shit posts, gif threads that just have a gif in it, topics about specific users in a derogatory way should be locked/deleted.

Threads that are literally just a single word like "lol" or a "." should be locked. Admittedly, I am guilty of doing this before, but I wouldn't mind to see it gone.

There isn't anything wrong with it that can be fixed without removing certain users.

You can't axe shitposts, that's the problem.
If you do, you're no fun nazis and no one will want to come here, but I think keeping a better eye on it, just merging threads and having some sort punishment for people consistently making shitpost threads might do something to help that.

It doesn't need to change much though, Serious only needs to be kept for Political/Religious discussion so to keep massive shitposting out of those threads.

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.
The moderation is just a tad bit too lenient on funposting threads. I mostly ignore them, but it's a chore to sift through dozens of spam threads to find something interesting.

Serious answer, and I know I might be guilty of this one. If a post isn't an attempt at being funny, or doenst have discussion value it should be locked. The OP can make an appeal for it to be unlocked if hey can prove it has discussion value or explain why it's funny

The way some people seem to bring up random issues just for the sake of subtly derailing a thread with funposting. Like the whole Jeff the Killer fiasco.

Due to the way you've gone about serious criteria, I feel that a lot of people who post something and want a genuine discussion will probably get their stuff buried under shitposts or just get 'K.' for answers or something, if I user my own examples, it's like when I post my writing stuff and it just goes onto the second page in about ten minutes becase of spam. I guess having a semi-serious board would be cool, where proper discussion can go but the flood stays as it's shit[pos]ty self.

Or if anarchy were permanent, then have the flood as that genuine discussion board and have anarchy as the spam shit board like it is now.

Posting pictures or GIFs tends to spark discussion, though. As long as it's not stupid unfunny shit.

It seems like a pretty consistent theme thus far, people are sick of the really shitty shitposts.

This will probably be taken as a leading question by some (icy) but still

Would you all rather see things like maths/science threads moved from serious to the flood, or shitposts (really dire ones) being locked?
And which do you see as improving the flood more?

this. Some needs to be allowed. I hate to use my own thread as an example, but my Trusday song lyrics thread. Was it a shitpost? Yeah probably. Was it funny and garner more funny posts? Yeah.

Okay what about my "I'm about to spam anime, Ama" or 70% of elegaic's threads that are just lyrics or fox pictures? Those should have been locked because they're just stupid

Again, just to clear things up a little.

I'm not advocating the axing of shitposts, because that's idiotic. What I'd entertain is locking the really crappy ones, which I actually did at one point >.>

Agreed, stuff like Elegiac's threads are pretty stupid. Even worse than some of mine at times.

The latter. Maths and science should go in serious, and shitposting shouldn't be allowed.
