    Knowing CL, 99.99% of his posts are useful/helpful/well thought out in the netherealm or otherwise.

    But I see what you are saying, but I think it would be much better if we cut back on some drama/sillyness. Don't get me wrong, I love me some of it cause I admit its amusing, but there always need to be a line man, we shouldn't do stuff that makes Pat ashamed.

    Wow! I love this feature! I missed the rep system quite a bit and seeing a form of it return is welcome to say the least. Thanks, Pat.

    FJ, the NetherRealm is pretty much the place where derpiness belongs. So it should probably stay just so that all the derp can stay contained in there and not find its way into actual serious threads and other sub forums

    WHY is c0ck censored, anyway, when dick isn't even censored

    Re: You can now Thank people for their posts

    The whole idea of the netherrealm was to reserve it for games and random discussion in Just Talk, as well as threads like 'what's your favorite color?' (for example). Basically, threads that would consist of short answers. There were far too many people making useless posts just to up their post count. Having a section where people could do that and be allowed to was an idea I had so it could at least be contained in one area instead of seeing everyone pull an Armageddon and post stupid pony pictures as a response everywhere.

    Unfortunately, a lot of people took the section and started making ridiculous threads.....it wasn't meant for that. Post count or not in there, people need to still have a bit of responsibility. Have some fun with games and memes and some random discussion in just talk but no need to make dumb threads.

    Ignore any typos, I am on my POS mobile lol.

    Then that post should not BE in the NetherRealm we have a General Discussion area that would be great for something like that.

    Re: You can now Thank people for their posts

    Like repping another user, thanks are just as subjective in nature. Most people use +rep for posts they agree with; I feel thanks are not going to be any different. Thoughtful posts that support an unpopular opinion are less likely to receive thanks, even if the arguments presented are strong while still showing respect to the opposition. The people who used the rep system to as a way of rubbing each others' backs are likely to do the same thing with the thanks system. Thoughtful posts falls to the responsibility of the members here, they need to be willing to be positive members of the community without thinking of an immediate "reward".

    Isn't Just Talk for general discussion, as well?
    I'm confused.

    General Discussion is for real discussions. Jade described NetherRealm best:

    Re: New Feature: Post Thanks

    The limit on Thanking people is now 10 per day. I found that 25 was way too much, now you'll have to ration them a bit. So chose wisely!

    Ohhhh, I was wondering why I couldn't thank people's posts. This clears it up, thanks.
