Title: Going to a LANparty?
Post by: narcberry on August 24, 2008, 11:51:14 PM
Then you're an idiot!

Hosting a LANparty?
You should probably make a business of your $57 weekly profit, start with a really cool logo, that's the most important part.

Why is it stupid to go to a LAN party? There are plenty of PC games that really aren't nearly as intense when playing by yourself or over the internet. Battlefield, Starcraft, Age of Empires, just to name a few, are far better when playing with a group.

I don't know many people into anime, and I don't like the shit, myself.  It's just a LAN set up between myself and some friends at my friends new place, but no one knows where the fuck he lives and we can't get a hold of him.  The bastard...

If a thread is likely to generate sophisticated debate and doesn't fit into any of the other serious boards, then I should think it would belong in General Discussion. This is just Narc being stupid, but not stupid enough for Complete Nonsense.

General discussion is for discussion of anything non related to the other topics, that isn't spam or an angry rant. This is about LAN parties, that is something else.
Title: Re: Going to a LANparty?
Post by: Henry Borbath on August 25, 2008, 06:44:02 PM
Everything Else and General are a little redundant. But I think the intention was for General to be for topics related to FET that are not for debate or question, something that is difficult to accomplish.
Title: Re: Going to a LANparty?
Post by: Parsifal on August 25, 2008, 06:47:19 PM
I would consider General Discussion to be for sophisticated debate of non-FE topics, and Everything Else to be for more relaxed debate where spamming and such is less frowned upon, but that can still be considered an intelligible conversation. If it can't be considered intelligible conversation, to Complete Nonsense or Angry Ranting it goes.

No, we have alternative science for scientific topics.... basically just science now, and philosophy and religion for those two. Basically all subjects covered. TFES works the way we use it, you try and change it and every member will eventually hate you and the site.

Exactly. You are needed to remove trolls. Basically battle stations type stuff. Otherwise until a problem arises, it's fine. Usually the members cooperate to fix anything (also dongs being a prime example, it has stopped.)

General Discussion is for general discussion, the clue is in the name. Its mainly for introducing yourself and having a light chat, it says so in the forum description. So learn to put things in the right place for fucks sake.

Complete nonsense came after everything else.

At one time everything you see in complete nonsense was in everything else. Everything in everything else was in general discussion, but both were slightly more edited than their new counterparts. As spamming increased complete nonsense was added to take care of the spam. You can't move the half spam to complete nonsense or you lose the point of making a complete nonsense section. If it makes sense at all it goes in everything else.

I know that didn't come out right but college is tiring sorry.

General Discussion
Think of this as the forums lobby. Come in, introduce yourself, have a light chat.

Everything Else
A place to talk about anything you want. Sports, politics, TV, hobbies.. whatever.


I think Everything Else is more for debates than General Discussion; GD is designed for chatting and introducing people. However, since this was a mod's decision, I guess we'll leave this thread as it is.
