I wish there could be a rule that people like Lars had to post the news or at least a part of them instead of something like "good news" followed by 1-2 links that say absolutely nothing about the kind of the news.

Yup, minor complaint about a really small but sometimes annoying problem.

No.
Is finding MUGEN to be more enjoyable to play when you're not wearing clothes an underrated opinion?

Couldn't you just solve that minor problem by putting him on the Ignore List? Did this really merit an entire thread?

A thread that could be benefitting for the news threads in general is too much for you but it is okay to put someone on ignore because some posts.

Awesome logic.

The ignore feature is shit.
I know what I'm talking about, I use it, there must be a million names on mine, but it's shit. Do NOT recommend it as a default response for anything.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

Alright, I've only been here for two years, so enlighten me.

I agree the ignore feature needs some improvements. I'd rather it hide a user's entire existence—don't show them as the latest reply, don't show them in the latest posts sidebar, don't even have that stupid "click to show post" thing because that only piques curiosity. I want it to go on as if they weren't even in the forum. Hell, that alone would satisfy me, I can do with their posts being shown in quotes.

Val needs someone that knows PHP to convert us back to the vanilla SMF that is actually being used again.

Till then we won't get anything new sadly :(

We already have a punishment for people who can't post news links properly: they get called out for bot-like behavior. It's annoying to click on something only to find that's it's irrelevant. If they can't handle that justifiable criticism and decide to blow up about it, that's their problem.

Until an admin admonishes someone for calling someone else a bot at the first complaint or report.

this doesn't need a rule, this needs a staff member to tell lars to stop making shitty posts because at this point he's almost the only one making posts that bad. his posts are not informative and he never replies to posts directed at him asking for clarification. basically, he's shit

agreed, the other bots alreayd learned and usually post stuff that is relevant to the topic or say what the links are about.
