    cosmos forum! *suggestion*

    We mainly use the cosmos forum for ethics and morals and saying what on out mind in a.... none general topic way...


    Many ideas in there are heavly supports or heavly rejected


    but i dont think our opinions should get us banned from this site!


    how about removeing the option to assign NEGATIVE points to a cosmo post or at least keep them from counting twords suicide or tha accual person overall points maybe just count for the thread's status!


    just an idea

    Worth should be judged on quality... Not apperance... Anyone can sell you **** inside a pretty box.. The only real gift then is the box..

    That's an idea with good intentions NetSyn, but how would you propose to fix the people who would abuse the forum?

    thats not a bad idea, but i keep thinking about that one guy who came on and posted the bubblegum picture. could have gotten me fired. that guy, no matter what forum he posted in, still deserved what he got. if a post stays on track with the topic, then yeah, thats a really good idea since opinions shouldnt get you negged. however, thinking about that, bigots still need negs, IMO. you are right, though. getting banned from a site like this doesnt make sense, as the forum is kind of off- topic anyway.
    just like water off a duck\'s back... I AM HERE.

    for CMOS help, check out my CMOS tut?

    <edit>souleman too makes a very good point...I am confused... I thin I remain neutral on this, as I know better </edit>
    I have a question; are you the bug, or the windshield?

    This was discussed once before, and rejected. If you take away negative points you should take away positive points. Otherwise, that forum would get overloaded with crap. Hey why not, you can't get negative points, but you may just get some positive ones...

    Also, like was mentioned before, it would become a haven for abuse. You would see a lot of "bleah, your all faggots and you can't touch me" type posts....

    ...not to mention people could just go looking for other posts by the user they want to neg in other forums... that's also one of the reason cancelling antipoints in Cosmos won't work, although it's a good idea...
