Sometimes I like to quickly check the site without having to log in.

It's nice to have that option, is all.

I do also love how Hamass is really snippy.

The change is you can no longer view the forums without being logged in.

Actually it's one of many things I implemented to encourage new signups, old visitors to post more etc. If I didn't want Juices to see the forums I'd just block his IP.

So they can't view any of the forums at all? What makes you think people are going to bother with the signups when they don't know how awesome this site is? How will this make lurkers post more?

I like that you ask a simple question, then just start jumping to conclusions and attempting to negate the whole idea when you don't understand any of the reasoning behind it at all, OR how it actually works.

If you could make that a bit catchier it could be our new forum tagline.

Well I had Bender's post but I wanted clarification- like if they could see the main page forums (since they can see the main page without logging in). But from what I gathered from "The change is you can no longer view the forums without being logged in." was exactly that, you can't see a single forum/thread unless you're signed in.

I don't understand the reasoning, THAT'S WHY I WAS ASKING THE (yet unanswered) QUESTION.

So fine, I go thru the work of logging out, checking the index (which I can see which isn't what Bender said) and clicking a bunch of threads and shit. While it talks about "limited access to view most discussions" I haven't seen anything limited. The only difference I see is the "GET RID OF THIS ANNOYING MESSAGE" thing.

So I guess my new questions are
a) What are these changes?
b) What is Hamass so pissed off about?
c) Old question- how is this supposed to make people who don't want to post want to post?

I'm going to bed, so real quick:

a) Changes include the annoying messages, and when you browse the forum it lets you read x amount of threads before blocking you and forcing you to register.

b) I guess he doesn't want us seeing that he visits the porntube video thread 30 times a day or something? I dunno.

c) It makes them register. If they want to browse the forums, they have to register. We have TONS of people who browse the forums on a regular basis but don't register, hogging up the bandwidth etc. So hopefully they will register, and then get more annoying messages until they start posting and thus expand our wonderful community.

Lucas

I, for one, applaud your efforts. It's fairly obvious you're the greatest forum overlord this community has ever had.

Now, if only you'd bring Juices back ...

That's in the secret forum that only shows up when you log in.

I don't think not allowing people to view the content helps sign-ups unless you have something amazing that Google has brought them to see and they're action oriented, like searching for NEW MEGAN FOX NUDE PICS or HOT TEENAGE TITS. Just my theory though.

Scotsman
03-22-2009, 08:34 PM
We have regular lurkers in double figures every day. They can either sign up, or stop lurking. So yes, it will increase signups.

Murphy
03-22-2009, 08:38 PM
But what if they just stop lurking and send lit bags of shit to you?

Vernitis
03-22-2009, 08:40 PM
Why would they put Tucho posts into bags?

Ormie
03-22-2009, 10:14 PM
The thing is that even if it increases signups how do you expect that to increase new posters? Somehow I don't think the thing keeping them from doing that is because signing up/logging in is such a pain.

Plus the forced postcount for the arcade has let to shit posts (see Mark, Marky) just for the sake of playing. I mean, Marky is well-known and liked among the members and certainly has the ability to make good posts. But even he, being Scots friend, couldn't bother into putting much effort into making posts. By that logic, how do you expect Lurky McLurkenstein to?

Lucas
03-22-2009, 10:15 PM
You have almost 15,000 posts and have never put in any effort, why would we expect effort from some newbie?

Why can't you ask a question and just........leave it at that? You could ask me all nice and curious "Hey Scots, this will increase signups but will it increase new posters? Any other strategies to increase new signups and posters?". Yet you can't just ask that. You've already set this up as a debate, chosen your side and give examples as to why you are right. Now instead of answering you, I feel like I'm basically having to defend myself.

Next time if you want to ask something - just fucking ask it. Is that too hard?

I'm done with this topic.

I AM SIMPLY ASKING FOR A DEBATE

Actually I am simply trying to understand. Why can't you respond to a question and just...answer the question? I'm not looking for a fight, I just wanted to provide the reasons why I think it won't work (so you know where I'm coming from) and was hoping you, being the forum funklord, would be able to tell me why I'm wrong.

So far your plan, as I understand it, is:
1) Make people register after viewing x threads. This I get.

2) Keep getting more annoying messages until they start posting.

This I don't. And I'll never know because you will not DEBATE ME and are done with this topic.

HAY BRANDO, this will increase signups but how will it increase new posters?

Something like that. Actually, I just didn't care for the thread, so I chose not to read it.

Unlike some people, I don't have to read every thread on here and post my two cents-worth. I can think of two people that do.

Yeah, you and USA-Hole love chipping in, it has to be said. You stir arguments and he posts emoticons of a naked man or a yellow face with sunglasses on. Both are pretty shit, although you stirring shit for the sake of it is marginally better.

shanon
03-25-2009, 09:53 AM
Is USHole Juicey, or his lackey? I get confused by the nicknames round here, and half the time don't have the time or interest to search and find out myself.

Hun

He seems to feel the ned to interject himself in every thread, if only to post his naked man or big cheese thing, so he's definitely USHole. A pale imitation. And now we've typed his name, Osiris will get to see this!
