I say it again, the General forum *is* the community! This forum is, of all the others I've seen, the least spammed, the nicest, the best community, and perhaps the biggest!

Taking away the general forum will not result in less spam/flames/wars.

It will result in thoose things sneaking into other topics:
Take a look at my new Game: Ultra blood killing carnage deluxe gore edition 5

It sucks.
n00b!!!111

[aso.]


Remember the thread about red_marvin buying a new computer?
That thread was more heated then the religion thread, but religion is banned and computer talk is allowed?

I understand that religion has nothing to do with QB Programming, but seriously, does buying a new computer have anything to do with it?

And what is Tech Talk:
I beleive in technology, not religion

Would that qualify?


You see, there is no escaping it, no matter what you do you'll either end up with:
a) No/A few forum members
b) Out of controll raving/ramblings in every section


Make clear rules, and IF a topic starts to go out of hand then give a warning, to the topic, and if it doesent get any better, lock it.


You cant say "this forum is about QB, nothing else" and then allow other things to be discussed/debated, as long as you approve.
THAT will scare members away, not the fact that there is a heated religious debate going on.

I mean, AAP still visits, he's one of the most religious people I know of (no pun intended)
As far as I know, he hasn't complained.
And if he have, then, why are you listening to someone talking complaining about religion, on a QB forum.

Score one for the good guys...






































Oh no.  Hold up.










Oh yeah that's right...nobody's winning here.

You guys just shot yourselves in the foot.  I don't know whether it is ignorance, vanity, tight-assedness or what that made you do this, but don't.  I have absolutely no idea what would make you do this.

Was it the Passion Of The Christ topic?  If that's what you called heated, then you guys are dumbasses...and have a shit memory.

Don't do this out of spite of a few people, it's not fair on the other people that visit this forum.

You go to a school, people are going to talk about other things besides Maths or Science.  You go to an office, people are going to talk about things other than filing, or the latest order or the new uber733t photocopy machine upstairs.

Oh and the stuff about asking active members of this forum.
Is that a bad attempt at lying?  Has anyone sided with you on this?  No.  So what, were you lying?  Or did you PM your friends, or as it seems likely, each other, and ask what they thought?  If people agreed to this, I'd love to see it.

Why are you trying to make this place so difficult to swallow?

Think about this one again guys.

Yes, but given the fact that [random] visits this forum, we can assume he programs, thus we can assume he do have a computer.

Thus, does the fact that he is buying a new one have anything to do with programming in QB?


Not really, does it?

Think about it - birthday threads, "QBNews random games," and What-I-Look-Like threads *are* the community!

Like Zack said, birthdays.

If you don't allow people to have general conversations then this forum won't be part of the qmunity, mainly, because this forum will quickly become a:
Pot here when you are bored or need some help but don't really give a damn cause this is a sterile place where everyone is anonymous.

While you're at it, make registering forbidden, that way there can't really be no flamewars cause noone knows who they are talking to.

Wouldn't that be great?

I wasn't joking. red_Marvin specifically asked about legacy support ("old stuff like DOS etc"), which directly relates to programming in QB.

The general forum has split, more info is in the misc talk forum.

I said, in the general forum, that it wasn't closed permanently. I know general topics are important, hence the creation of the forum in the first place. It however was created a long time ago and needed some updating.

Its perfectly relevant. Besides 90% of the people here dont even actively code in QB, and without topics like that, it would be very quite.



And on the spliting of the general forum, i think its kinda pointless, i mean before i only had to visit one board, and now theres another new board, it makes it even longer to visit all the sections, and this forum doesnt exactly need even more sections....


But i wouldnt mind if you started a whats better thread, the general programming forum has become:

whats better? JAVA or PYTHON? C or C++? Qb or VB? etc etc etc, i think you get the point. (Im joking, but seriosly we do need more original topics, i mean TRY THEM out instead of asking. heck most of the posters dont even listen to the advice and conitnue using thier own program anyway......

Bluffer: Why can't you post here anymore? There have been a lot of changes, but the net result has been very little change. You are most welcome to post.
