Re: your edit edit, winna... The suggestions we've had so far seem to have been mainly set out by me
. Everybody else seems to be happy with more-or-less-anarchy.
Personally, I don't know if anybody
bothered to do more than simply make complaints about the idea in the thread I opened for discussion, and so far, [-mArc-] hasn't even weighed in with his opinion, meaning I don't think that very many people have even thought
about PM'ing or emailing him re: the matter.
I doubt this will change, and I doubt that POTM will change any time soon. Of course, I've been wrong before. We might all log in tomorrow to find a brand-new shiny subforum. But that's unlikely. I mean, we've been waiting for the PEEL Vault to turn red like the other subforums when it contains unread posts, for... hmm... well, we've been waiting since it opened.
PEEL is highly resistant to change. I think it'll continue to happen the way it does at the moment until enough people actually do what they can do about it.
Wait, I thought we were going back to standards, putting this in the PEELie Vault area with an established staff, and people only winning once (a year?)...or while I was gone for 15 days did you decide to throw all the rules out, making this total madness and totally worthless?
Yeah, just because somebody makes a suggestion here, it doesn't mean it gets adopted. Since Slimmy disappeared, [-mArc-] is the only active admin, therefore you'd need to get him to do something. Which involves getting him to care enough.
So far this year, [-mArc-] has made about six posts. He's opened and closed the PEELies subforum, he's banned the mysterious force behind the PEEL Inquirer (thus cutting short what was presumably planned to be a wonderful and intricate, engaging and highly amusing romp through the realms of fantasy and imagination, although this is all just conjecture since I wouldn't know anything about that because it totally wasn't me)
, and told me that I've got to stop swearing and insulting people or "take a break", which I suppose means a ban. Which effectively amounts to me not being allowed to respond to half the comments which are aimed at me, even though that's not going to buy the people posting them a ban. Not that I'm complaining out loud, you understand. I'm just muttering angrily under my breath.
activity than usual, but it's still not a lot.
Resisting the quadruple post. I'm very proud of you, winna.
The only thing with moving POTM is that less people will be inclined to vote, given its an extra click away. Or new posters might not be aware of it right away because not everyone reads the vault/wiki.
Typical bloody PEELer attitude. "I don't wanna. Other people might not do this." So? If you throw enough links around, make enough announcements, parade something round as a big idea, then people will click on it. People tend to go back to things they've clicked on, as something new might have happened. So one thing that it would do is increase awareness of POTM, WikiPEELia, and the Vault. Yet you're just dismissing it out of hand because it's "an extra click away".
If anybody actually does
have that attitude, I'm disgusted with them.
Good luck getting anything to change around here. Good luck attempting to actually organise
or get anything done
around here... even AGI 9, which doesn't really depend on anything from [-mArc-] except him allowing the thread to remain open looks shaky, because people simply don't commit to anything. PEELers do a lot of talking, but take few actions, because PEELers are fundamentally lazy.
Y'know what? I think I'm going to be too lazy to turn this into a poll. So when the time comes to end nominations and open a poll, some other muggins can do it. I'm too lazy.
