I guess it's just in case someone has any questions about the issue, they can post it here instead of making a new thread.

The bottom line is :

DON'T post any "My favorite FF game" type thread.

I was reading this thread when suddenly it hit me. I JUST SPENT THE LAST FIFTEEN MINUTES OF MY LIFE READING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN! Today is a boring day. But yeah, any discussion about favorites always ends badly. You should have seen this one thread called "DRAGONBALL Z VS. LOBO" (it was on a different site) One guy had actually hacked one of the other people posting on the thread, found out their address, and threw a brick through the guys window that said

VEGETA KICKS ASS, YOU STUPID M----- F-----!

The only reason I know this is because the other guy threatened to retaliate. It was the funniest thing I've seen in years. Long story short, some nerds get way to worked up about those things.
While you sleep comfortably in your bed at night, I lurk in the shadows ready to strike at those who oppose me.
Fortune smiles on those who count themselves among my friends, and death is constantly dreamed of by my enemies.

Now would creating a "Wich______ do you reccomend" thread be looked down on? Do you think it would invoke flamming? You see I'm not sure whether I want a photobucket account or image shack to host my photos and such. (those were suggested in the image sticky)

I mean I've never used either, so I'm open to any and all suggestions. I just don't want to get banned for doing something silly.

Not in this section (Tech Help/Newbies), where it really should be. In other places... it really depends on the maturity level of whoever is online at the time of posting. :P

Recommendation threads, as far as I'm aware, are pretty acceptable. I see them every so often in GenDisc and even in UnMod.
And as for Photobucket vs Imageshack, I personally prefer Imageshack, since it allows bigger file sizes (1024 kb vs 250 with PB), and you can easily transload an image from another site so you don't have to leech from their bandwidth. However, PB is more user friendly and makes it easier to share pics with other people by making your album public, like mine, for example.

I saw Jesus wearing a button it said: "What Would Chuck Norris do?"
Chuck's said: "What Would God do?"
And God's said:"Who the fuck is Chuck Norris?"
And the Mr.T's said"FOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!"

Teh bump. This doesn't need to be deleted. Again.

Also, I use Photobucket simply because I already have an account there. Lazy? I think so.

... I do believe the actual problem with favourite threads is that they are never delt with in that manner. Instead, they become "best ____" thread.

Look at the "All time hardest boss" thread. It is based simply on opinion and it has yet to become a mess of flames and insult. However, favourite threads are approached in the worst way possible.

For example, a bad favourite thread:

Topic: What is your favourite remix?

Content:

I think Bad Tuna is the best song on this website. I love it so much, it's my favourite, and it's better than anything else over here. So, who agrees with me?


Example 2, good favourite thread:

Topic: What is your favourite remix?

Content:

I have to say, mine is Bad Tuna. It was the first remix I heard and at that moment, I knew I loved the idea of videogame music remixes. Whenever I turn on my Ipod, I go straight for that song, and sometimes I even put it on repeat.

So, what is your favourite remix and why that one in particular? Also, do you do anything special when you listen to it?




See, this is how a favourite thread should be. The same tone should be kept all through the thread. The OP presents why he likes a remix in particular, he never claims it is the best, and he does not expect people to agree with him. You should not argue about opinions.

Insert signature here.

I think that was mine.

Least favorite level was the topic. I think DarkeSword locked it though.


And it was going smoothly!

Actually I think that it's not implied that a favorite thread always leads to flamewar, and I agree with Youkai's point.
Favorite threads about OC ReMixes should still be avoided, but who cares if we say that we love Marble Garden instead of Green Hill? I think that the Sega guy who drew those levels doesn't care at all :P

I'm surprised that its been two years and no-one has brought up a problem with this rule.

Its a remix site where people aren't allowed to discuss their favourite remixes.
In fact, people aren't allowed to discuss their favourite anything.

...

Is this the best solution you guys could come up with? Some users behave badly to others... so you ban all such discussion, for everyone.

Wtf.
