If you don't like the lounge, then please don't feel obligated to post in it.

If you have constructive criticism, then feel free to post it under the correct topic.

I'm actually gonna unlock this thread because I've also noticed a distinct lack of chatty-kathy's in the lounge lately. I've been considering moving the heated topics back in to the main lounge over the past few weeks.

I think some of it has to do with the reputation system to be honest. I think some people are just scared to post in the lounge because they think they'll get down repped.

Or... in this case... having their thread locked ;)

All hail skyhawk133!


TriggaMike - you're a douche. I've said it in other threads, I'll say it again: We are not here for your entertainment.

Edit: YOU, however, are here for MY entertainment. :clap:

I've only been here since november I believe, but I have seen it slow down a lot even from then, and especially since the reputation system was implemented. Sometimes it's legit and people deserve to get bad rep for a post, but after awhile those same people will begin getting bad rep for posting in general. I love the system, I think it's a good idea, I just wish there was a way to control it better.

Why would you put a dancing bear in a cage? He's entertaining you, give him some room!

Interesting. I tend to agree. I thought reputation was going to be taken out of social areas?

No one has quoted the Bible, Hitler or Sarah Palin in weeks. Much as that sounds like a good thing, it's kind of dull. :P

Looks like you can't be down voted in the lounge. (something I just noticed) I thought the same thing bout people being too scared to post in the lounge.

Alright, so I turned off "down" voting in the lounge, games/puzzles, and heated topics. And if everyone thinks we should move heated topics back in to the lounge, speak now... or don't. Up to you assholes! ;)

@baavgai - For God so loved the world, he gave the Aryans a view of Russia from their houses?

@skyhawk133 - Do it! Do it! Do it!
