I've found that if you react to a troll at all they think that they've trolled you, even if your reaction is to logically and calmly point out why they're wrong.
It pretty much tells me what the different tabs do when I hover over them, is that just me?
You don't even want to know what four square taught kids...
Okay I'm going to lay things down here, not as a moderator, not as staff, but as a long time member of this site.
Things have changed. Fact.
Does that mean the site has to be worse off because of it? Hell no.
People are complaining that they don't get any quality posts anymore, they point to the new staff, they point to the new changes. Let me tell you this: There are less quality posts because people are posting less quality posts. Why is this? You might ask. I like to think that it's because the members who would normally be posting funny/original/thought provoking things are instead spending their time posting complaints. You don't have to look very far, just open amirite and look at the POTD, I can guarantee that no matter what it is someone will have complained about it.
The POTD is a year or two old? People complain that the mods are trying to make amirite look good by putting up old popular things.
POTD is too new? Complaints that a POTD should have proven itself.
POTD is a joke? Complaints that you can't vote yes or no on it.
POTD is too serious? People complain that they used to be funny and witty.
Stop seeing the bad and start making the good. It is possible.
I'm gonna take a shot in the dark here and say that it's because you're lonely.
Oddly enough I actually can, under "Settings" go to the "Theme" category and change your background.
These children love the sun so much that they plague all drawings with this bright yellow blotch, ignoring the fact that without sunscreen it will be the cause of their skin cancer later in life.
Much like the coming of age tale, an adolecent's treatement towards the sun displays their naivity and innocence turning into hatred and untrustfulness against this solar body which abodes in the sky. When they are young they trust the sun, staring at it for long hours, convincing themselves that it will blink first in this friendly staring contest between close friends. As they age however they realise that their slow descent into blindness is not a random act of God, but is in fact their closest friend, turning on them in their hour of need.
Why sun!? Why did you take my sight from me?!
...I will have my vengeance. In this life, or the next...
cough got a bit carried away there, 240 between the two of us there Len.
I'll inform the moderating team that their enthusiasm is getting out of hand, they will be dealt with severely.
Lies in the past don't change your honesty in the present.
Haha, only if they were 1200 words, unfortunately they are characters. I'd have to make the 1000 words only one letter each.
Homepage votes won't necessarily get the post directly to the homepage. However, the more homepage votes a post has the more likely that a moderator will see it. This gives the post a better chance of making it to the homepage.
Directly from the "About Amirite" Page: "The more home page votes a post have, the quicker a moderator will see it!"
I actually tried giving it a shot until I realised that we only have 1200 characters in these dang comment boxes...
Perhaps I'm missing something, could you explain to me how people who spend many years advancing their education are imbeciles?
Of course he did, people steal when nobody is around and they still broke the law. Law is suppose to guide your action with or without the presence of others.
Just a reminder that you do in fact have a suggest for homepage AND a suggest for POTD button. If you find a post you think deserves to be homepaged just go ahead and suggest it, that would be the first step to seeing more posts you like on the homepage.
