Okay, I might be a little biased here, and I don't know how most furs think of the world.  With that said, I'd like to request a "Random Insanity" board.  Unlike most boards, nothing is set on it.  As the name suggests you can talk about anything that doesn't fit on any other board.

Take "t". for example.  Built from the incident that a poll in the lab created, the "RI" forum can be used to pit "t" against anything the poller chooses.  We can't post that anywhere, not even in the lab.  

That's what Random Insanity is for, just plain silliness.  So, what do you think?

I don't think we need a new forum, but maybe we could loosen the spam rules on general nonfurry discussion.

Seeing what the spammers here are capable of, I don't think any rules should be loosened, but I would support a board that could be aptly labelled "SPAM".

The prob with a spam forum would be it would put more work on the mods because furrs would get to silly and start posting offencive stuff and as the old saying goes give them an inch and thay'll take a mile .The spam would start to over flow into other parts

Okay, saying that you'll post 1000+ messages a day won't sell this idea.  I'm not really talking of spam, in the true sence of the word (that is, posting several times in a relatively short time).  What I'm talking of is stuff that's not really meant to be taken seriously.

As for offensive stuff...

...I can't believe I'm going to bring this up...

Anyone ever here of the LUE on GameFAQS?  That place became so bad, that it was eventually quarentined.  I'm not saying that this board should get this bad, but it could be controlled early on, by doing what they did.  If you don't know, they made it accesible to only a few user groups and member numbers.  Maybe if you restrict it to only those you designate to use it, the forum would work.  I don't know, that sounds like extra work to the admins.  That leaves me with only one thing to do...

Can't you see the diffrence between a joke and being serious?
And spam is something you shoudn't take too seriously.

But i would really like such a board just saying random things all the time, that would really take the stress away and is a good way to catch the attention of the people



i would post 100 messages a day '<img'>

Ok, here's a suggestion to the Admins,

If such a hack is possible for this board, have a spam forum, but have it completely detached from adding to a users postcount.

That would keep users from "loading" their postcounts ':cool:'

**edit

An example is at Yiffstar - the "General Forums" do not add to the users "Sezteras" or what ever the heck they use there, some Eastern European currency '<img'>

Yeah, that's what I was going for in the restrictions.  I don't want it to be used for raising post counts, that's not what I want it for.   Just as Gemini said, a place to take out your silliness...

That would definitely be possible.  Almost anything is possible to code.

CarLOS: It's possible with this board software. A minigaming forum I used to frequent had their off topic board decoupled from post count.

And I agree with Sava and BrownLeopard...
You guys realize we're volunteers right? Most of us have day jobs. Please be kind to your mods and admins. We'll return the favor. ^_^

This sort of suggestion comes up every so often, and the answer is always the same. I'm sure you can guess what that answer is.
 
Spam is not just sillyness and random prattling on about nothing. Spam is a waste of bandwidth, hard drive space, memory, processing time... Spam is just a waste, no matter what way you cut it. If you want someplace where you can be narcissistic and prattle on about whatever silly things come to your mind, get an LJ.

Already have an LJ, several in fact...

But, I see your point.  Okay, I retract my suggestion (as if I need to), and I guess the matter is closed for now.  I'll probably figure out something though, maybe a spin-off forum...  with your permissions of course.  See, there are topics here that would generate into complete randomness (if not for the rules).  Running gags, inside jokes, all of that lost on other forums.

As for spam, that's not really what I had in mind, but I understand that it would probably lead to that anyway.  Don't worry Kai, I'm not trying to make it harder on any of you.  If the answer is no, then I can hold my silliness back for other areas of life.  

I thought I'd just suggest it anyway, but now I retract it.  Thanks for considering it.

*Shivers* LUE is a scary, scary place my friend. I wouldn't really want to see anything similar here. That goes for most GameFAQS boards too. Keep in mind GF is a MUCH larger site then here. maybe if we got a ton of new members it might be a better idea to have an RI clone or something.

Don't I know it.  I still can't see how anything can degenerate to that.  If it were real life, and they threw a party, the furs on that CSI episode would look like they were all perfectly normal, upstanding citizens that should run for office... including the dead guy.

Anyway, yeah, you make another good point, that site was way larger than this one.  And it wasn't nearly as friendly as this one is.
