- Flame wars
- Emergence of con artists
- Many complaint threads/posts
- Auction threads spilling into other boards and discussions
- Mods won't/can't police it properly
this describes the site as it is now...
if everyone is against auction posts then why do auctions on ebay get posted in the hot deals thread? If you go to atariage.com and check out their auction forums its excellent topics and discussions...I was extremely impressed by it
The site wont go to shit overnight just because a couple new forums are started...if there are problems or it turns out bad then it can be killed...but how you would feel if CheapyD deleted the trading forums because of CloudSpekk? Or the off-topic forums over MWL? Users are the problem as individuals...moderation is the key and I believe cheapy is working on some rules before starting the new forums
