Ok so I am assuming that the admins/mods only control the forums but whenever I go to the main page to read articles there is a bunch of shit a the bottom from people named things like "taco" and "bum fighter" do you guys know who runs the main site because this makes the main site look bad, and should be removed. This shit at the bottom constantly has links to porn and other stupid shit. Is there any way to ge the scrolling posts removed? here is an example of what is up right now:



Taco: for life hoooody hooooi got a shot gun rifle and a four wheel drive country taco will survive
19 Oct 07, 00:13
Taco: ok sleepy time l8er brothers
19 Oct 07, 00:13
Taco: i got a shot gun rifle and a four wheel drive country taco will survive

Yeah we can't control that but it should be deleted, it's always just retarded shit in it.

Agreed. I'm not even sure who goes in there, but it's a horrible idea. We limit cuss-words in the titles of threads so they don't show up there, but we leave that chat room that imo is worse. I wouldn't miss it if it were gone.

then again, we don't want the donkey's that post there to come into the forums, do we?

No I don't want them here, but I think that removing chat feature at the bottom of the page would not directly lead people to post here. It marganalizes the reported news, I mean if you read an article then right below it you see links to grannyfuckers.com wouldn't you question the source? I mean the goal is to educatue people right I don't like to think that people read a good article and then then go away questioning its accuracy . Since these forums are a part of mmanews.com I thought it might be benificial to make the main page more credible which would make the forums more credible.

I feel like we're Border Patrol sometimes trying to keep an eye on all the little open spots and hidey holes...

Apparently someone was supposed to be modding that thing. Would anyone else like to jump up and start doing it?

Not me. Maybe make Smoogy do it since he's the new guy.

Lolol. I won't even try to explain how completely off-topic this is, considering the subject of the thread. Lol.



Awesome nonetheless though.

The whole main page is awful and has needed a re-design ever since it was created. My advice is to avoid it entirely.

The only thing I've found that chat useful for was when the forum was down for a couple weeks. That was the only way some of us could communicate with each other and find out what the hell was going on.

Yeah, that whole chat thing is stupid. The site could use a new design and lay out and such, but I don't mind it.
