Post Do you think ____ is a good Thread Topic?
One of the biggest problems most people find when joining a new forum, is that they have no idea what thread topics have already been made, and what thread topics should be made. Its a real pain when you come up a great idea for a new topic and discover that its already been made, or that nobody wants to participate in it. And then its a pain for the Mods because they have to move it to the Dead Thread Bed or merge it with another topic.

Well thats where this topic comes in.
If you get an idea for a new topic but want a second opinion, or don't know if its already been made, you can suggest it here and leave it to the judgement of other users to decide whether or not they like the idea.
Less hassle, less spam, less dead threads in the dead thread bed (try saying that 10 times fast), and more interesting topics :D So suggest away!

It's not really a pain at all. We took this responsibility, and we gotta follow through with it. :3

I'd say as long as you follow forum rules, it's not a big deal what you want to start a thread about. We won't close it, but we can't guarantee activity.

If you want to scope out interest, however, might I recommend the chat thread?

I'm going to close this thread, ironically enough, because I think it's unnecessary.

Well, we've received several PMs of people who think this should exist, so I'll go ahead and re-open it!

Gah! This would have been pretty helpful earlier actually to see if it would've been good or not to post my WWF topic. Might have gotten it posted in the right forum in the first place too. :?

It's fine to make a World Wildlife Fund topic.

Or a World Wrestling Entertainment topic.

Sleet, that second one's acronym isn't "WWF."

Before I somehow ended up as the moderator for Not the Comic, I maintained index threads for each forum. I approve of this topic.

World Wrestling Entertainment used to be World Wrestling Federation until sometime in the '90s the other WWF complained.

I'm pretty sure we have a search feature, so if you took a half hour or so, you could get a pretty good idea of what topics have already been covered by various threads.

Still, THIS way you can leave your ideas to the judgement of other users, its a good way to get feedback on the topic you may want to make.

I have already started a topic involving the many ideas for various people's inventions, where would that chat thread be again? And this is a very unique topic for the exact reason that it is not a specific topic :D

The chat thread is the one with 'chat thread' in the title. It's in this forum.

Yes but I can't find it! I might as well have the mods shut it down...it seems like a pointless idea! But ideas are hard to come up with wouldn't you agree?

[Chat Thread 35]
If you ever can't find it, you can always just use the "find" tool on whatever browser you use and tell it to find the phrase "Chat Thread". It seldom leaves the first page.

We also don't just shut down threads because they're inactive, only if they're truly pointless (which the topic you started is not, I mean pointless as in a topic for which an active thread already exists, or consists of something like "post the letter A") or if they break the rules somehow.

It's our job to be pestered. We feel inadequate when we don't get in our daily quota of pestering.

Well we could create a thread just for that if it'd help make your day complete. ;)

So if I were to say...wanna know how certain things work here instead of checking the FAQ which is useless ask a Mod, I could?

Post Re: Do you think ____ is a good Thread Topic?
Certainly.

The FAQ's not totally useless, it's just that it wasn't written by anyone here, so it's got a lot of irrelevant information and doesn't cover more community-oriented questions.

Then to ask a question how specifically do the Friends and Foes feature work?

The foe feature hides posts of those people. Honestly I think it serves virtually no purpose on this forum, since troublemakers end up banned, and for anyone else you're kinda being a jerk. I'm not really sure what the friends feature does. It's possible you can automatically be notified when friends post? I dunno.

Friend does not do anything but show when a friend is on when you check your or other people's profile.

Foe makes it so you can not see posts made by certain people, but it will still have a notification where the post was asking if you want to show it. And it is not that if you have a foe you are "being a jerk". Just use the feature if you feel yourself incompatible with someone. It does not however block them from PMing you.

I hope I'm not being a jerk, at least i try not to be. :(

I had wondered how that feature was supposed to work. Didn't wanna try it on someone just to see though. Might have sent a bad message for all i know and give the wrong impression.

I think the problem with making a thread like that is the fact that no one actually has one. ^^;

Maybe someone could make a poll to see if anyone here owns one?

I don't own one either, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth discussing, since there are plenty of furries that follow it.

In that sense it would be better to just name the topic "Fursuits" as "The Fursuit Tourney" seems a bit misleading.

It sounds more like a competition between fursuits and such.

I actually think only Mods can make an actual poll. so you'd need to ask one of us.

You can just make the thread yourself and ask for a poll to be made, as long as you specify the question and the poll choices.

Alright, I've got an Idea:

What do you guys think about a tread topic about other webcomics we read.
I'd be like a place where you can post links and pictures from webcomics besides Housepets! that you like. Then people can go and explore them :)

Any opinions on this?
