Topic: Stop making random useless topics

Okay. Seriously. This is a Boba Fett/Star Wars Message Board. Why do we care about Vegetable Gardens? Favorite *30 different random things*? Eh? Seriously. N00bs just trying to get as many posts as possible. I for one, find it annoying. Half the topics on this message board are in fans, which most are useless, asking random stuff. I know that the Fans section is for that...but really? I know I'm not the only one who is thinking this.

Re: Stop making random useless topics

Yep. Unless it's something that really will contribute to discussion I don't see a point. And especially not a hundred different ones all at once. Maybe once every so often would be good, but not the entire first page.

Re: Stop making random useless topics

I stand with Rev. Some of these topics are really getting out of hand. I'm not going to name people, but some of you noobs are like "Yay! I have made over 50 topics!" and you just joined a couple months ago. I have been here 2 YEARS, and I haven't even made 10 topics.

Please stop posting these pointless topics. It is getting on several people's nerves, including mine.

Re: Stop making random useless topics

I agree. I think I've made maybe five topics, two of which were semi-successful RPGs. Others were things I thought might be things that people could discuss, and would want to discuss, maturely. Just stop with the random topics. Jeez.

Re: Stop making random useless topics

I agree. I try to think through things before I make a topic, (I think I've made 4). I don't like it when people just try to get a lot of stars, no matter what.

Re: Stop making random useless topics

I agree. More thought before posting.

I have been thinking about starting a new topic, but I have been put off doing so for now by the amount of new topics.

Re: Stop making random useless topics

I've been here for 8 years and have made at most ten topics. Maaaaaaybe 13-15. But certainly not more.

And, Revan, of course you're wanted here. Everyone is. smile

I hear ya. 

The Fans section *as I understand it* IS for sharing things that are off topic with the main theme of the site to see if others like the same thing*i.e. who likes LotR, non-SW games and books, etc.* and also for us to get to know each other better *threads like 'How old are you, pics of yourself, etc.* 

HOWEVER, the total randomness and 'off the wall' topics that are getting thown onto the boards ever Single DAY is really getting on everybody's nerves.  And as Fett_II pointed out, not only are the threads often totally random, they are many times threads that ask questions that are already up!  That's even more annoying. 

Why don't you new members who love so much to post on that sort of thing search the old Fans threads and bring them back to life??  There's a ton of great threads that have been burried either because the members at the time had shared their veiws and had nothing more to say at that time, or were just forgoten. 

Take the time to think about whether or not the thread you have in mind would bring something interesting to the site before you create it, and at least try to check and see if maybe it's already up

Very well put RD. I agree very much so. This could even be a warning for members in the future. Ie PLEASE think about what we post BEFORE you post it. I have always thought of the BFFC as being an intelligent and "classy" ( for lack of a better word) message boards. When there are multiple random topics, that are over all, not thought invoking for anyone, it becomes boring. And thats not why any one of us here; we are here to have fun and NOT be bored by banality. Can anyone here imagine Boba saying some of these topics? No i didn't think so.

Re: Stop making random useless topics

I don't know what to say. Fans message board is going down and gets boring,new members post random things...BFFC don't need any random! Let's stop making useless threads like "What is your favourite - ?" etc.

I agree with rev,Si and RD.

Re: Stop making random useless topics

It's kind of ironic.  I was just poking my head over in the FANS threads (haven't checked it in a while) and noticed the same thing and actually brought this up to the rest of the mods a few minutes ago on the Admin threads.  I totally agree with you on these not being necessary.  I think this comes close to violating the Spam clause in the rules, but I've asked for clarification on it.  It seems like an attempt at boosting ones posting stats or something.  I've seen the same thing happen over at the Red vs Blue site a few times.  Either way, you're definitely not the only ones who've noticed and your concerns have been noted and channeled up.  Thanks for voicing your concerns guys.

Re: Stop making random useless topics

Well, asking random questions in the Fan section, which is basically like a Chit-Chat section, isn't bad. I mean, look at the RP section. They have stuff like "Trees vs. Bushes" What does that have to do with Star Wars? Absolutly nothing.

So, all in all, unless your Spamming up the boards with rapid fire posts, I see no harm in random questions in the Fan section.

The first four forums on the boards' home page, under the heading "Boba Fett," are for discussion about that headline. They include:

* General
* Film and Television
* Bounty Hunters
* Serious Geeking

The second five forums, under the heading "Boba Fett fandom," are more open-ended with the "Fans" forum being the most lax.

I'm gonna have to completely disagree with you there. Random rapid fire topics are just as bad as rapid fire posts...if not worse.
