Seriously everyone stop. It is getting old. If you want to have a post about magibon, fanart, trains, or whatever make a thread about it. Do not jack someone else’s.
Who edited that?
That would be me.
So this problem is going to be fixed? Very good.
how would one go about doing that?
A giant banhammer reserved for threadjacking?
something along the lines of this, one would assume
I really dont know how you can address threadjacking, I mean threads go off topic all the time….
An instant banhammer would be too harsh?
I believe in harshness to deal with trolls (and vandals).
uh, thats what happened to /b/. And then /b/ was never the same again.
Everyone left, went somewhere else.
The interwebs its supposed to be fun right? Too harsh of rules doesnt make funs.
I care not about /b/.
But we must know our internet history. Its just as important.
well i wouldn’t do a full time ban, maybe like a two-hour time-out
That’s a good idea. (But maybe 6 hours would be better)
Threadjacking isn’t THAT bad, is it? When its occasional and not extreme…
That would mean you would be banned anytime you post, Watcher, for you are always showing your hatred of /b/ or “the dark side of Internet (baaaaaw)” whenever you can, even if the topic doesn’t in any way talk about it.
While I also believe that harshness and “fear inspired by those who got the power instead of being too much friendly” are the only way to deal with trolls, flooders and spammers, you should look into the mirror before judging others, next time.
Well excuuuuse me Princess. Just because I hate the giant shock image that is /b/ doesn’t mean that I am trolling.
Well of course when the spams and trolls are unfunny and obvious then you do throw the banhammer but still… I like lax rules that keep order but still keep the fun environment in play.
Berry-kun is raging again. Maybe you should change your avatar.
Occasional threadjacking is okay, but excessive should be -1 karma, or a 5 minute time out.
Better yet, just delete the posts and get back on topic.
well when you overly express your feelings people get tired of it and just want you to keep your opinions to yourself
and that is sometimes mistaken for trolling
I thought that IS trolling. :/
Awww, but I like thread jacking. Its fun, like Blah said. If you want the thread back, just keep it going like the hijack never happened.
If there is a banhammer, I will bawwwwwwww.
Tonberrys in every FF games seem to grunt when they move. Does that count as raging ?
If so, my avatar remains ideal, I think.
No, but the Instant kill chef’s knife counts as raging.
There is a banhammer, but if you’re not a troll you probably won’t see it.
Personally, I don’t really see this as that big a deal. We’ve got bigger problems than threadjacking and I’d like those to be addressed first.
Will someone hijack this thread? For the lulz?
Must be raging asian guy. no exceptions.
Or this one (only exception):
Real mature. @AC
Okay, but only when I forgot to put it in between the < flash of anger > command…
We need to all get back to documenting the memes.
When we have time/motivation.
I have motivation. And time. So I will improve my entries.
I am sorry for complaining so much about everything. I guess I kind of seem like an ass.
Nah, it’s natural to get angry every now and then. But for something as minor as this, it does kinda seem like you’re overreacting.
I am kind of in a bad mood today. Vandals on wikis.
You are taking the webs too seriously… Maybe you should take a chill pill.
Chill mode engaged.
I will attempt to calm down.
In my opinion, it’s ok to post somewhat irrelevant posts if everyone generally stays on topic.
Also, some threads deserve to be threadjacked, such as “Would you like to pet my duck?”
Now THAT was a good thread. Also the one I did with the cookies and how they saved Christmas.
and thread jacking meme thursdays with babies
You’re not supposed to threadjack meme thursday with babies.
well it was christmas, we were lazy, and it happened
Now that was comedy! I loved the babies! And you don’t ever hate on the babies @Real Genius! EVAR!
Ok, here’s my two cents.
If a thread is absolutely FUNing retarded, I will jack it. Since you cannot sage threads on KYM, this seems to be the only way to get people to stop posting in threads.
I.e. Trolling threads, most of my own threads (actually, ALL of my own threads), etc.
If someone is intentionally trolling ban them. But don’t ban them for threadjacking. That’s retarded, period.
I have to be honest. The baby threadjacking was actually kind of annoying. A cat threadjack is fine too, though.
BUT IT WAS CHRISTMAS!!! And it was all in good fun. I didn’t mean to be annoying. Sorry if that was.
Ahh, don’t worry. Me and the other two banditos (Frketson & Tombery) have had our share of threadjacking as well (Jack Black threads). It’s awwwwright!!
so black jack thread jacking ≥ baby thread jacking?
EDIT: jack black, not black jack
Black Jack? Who said anything about Black Jack? Don’t you mean Jack Black? lol
Anyways, that’s for me to know and you to find out.
so. . . . it is?
