I just don't really see it serving much of a purpose. Unless it's going to be used to punish mean members for hurting the feelings of some stupid n00bs or something... in which case I definitely dislike the idea, as that's half the fun of this site.
People who just outright troll and spam will be banned the same as always, this is for people on the edge of whoredom.

If said "mean member" is constantly disrupting threads with their flaming, then it will most certainly be them.

Once again, we're trying to steer things more toward legitimate discussion. Make the thread discussions themselves interesting to read, pages of insults are ultimately hollow and a chore to read through for those who've fully left their grade school days behind them and aren't interested in soap opera trivialities.

What about certain members who are rude to people who make duplicate threads? Is that Timeout worthy?

Also, is off-topic, but related discussion still allowed? Like discussing a Kevin Bacon film in the Death Sentence thread. As long as it isn't pages and pages?

Natural flow of discussion is cool, we're just focussing on nonsense like, "Hey I just got this new fabric softener the other day and my clothes are totally soft!" Crap that drives the thread way off-topic.

As long as it doesn't carry over and disrupt more legitimate threads no, we just prefer you at least report the duplicate (as you usually do).

Do you take suggestions? There are a couple members who do nothing but insult and try to and start flame wars.

Shivers

I'm all for this, personally. I've had my share of flame wars and sometimes you need something to straighten you up. It's getting really tiresome seeing the same old flame wars on a daily basis. The noob bashing seems to be at an all time high. And it is never one member, 5-6 members have to come into a thread and tell the person the same thing or spew their uninteresting crap into every thread.

We've always been known as harsh board and people have to learn to stick it out or grow thicker skin but it's uncalled for to do it to almost every new member that joins the board. Interesting people with interesting discussion could possibly be scared away from even registering if they take a look around.

Also, change the whatever forum to the dating forum. A.S.A.P!

Will timeouts be used on people who seem to derail every thread they post in with their useless banter?

Fuck yes! . . .

I mean people will naturally go off-topic every once in a while but it gets a little extreme.

I'll plead half guilty to this. I usually make a joke to welcome the new member, because it seems tiring to read 37 variations of "welcome to BD"...some of my jokes aren't taken well and then the member leaves, but they'd just leave anyway after exploring and seeing other people who are far meaner than I am.

Best. Idea. Ever.

I just saw who the first inductee to the timeout chair was Dark_M. Adding insult to punishment, revolutionary! This whole plan reminds me of my time in Catholic school, they would be proud.

Well done.
