If you have something to add to a thread or need to bump it up, you would need to have it manually moved again instead of just posting in it. Sometimes threads get necroed because raocow is returning to a game after an update, or simply because there's something new about the game.

If we really wanted to, we could just have a LP list thread that links to other threads. Probably implemented via a solution other than making a new pinned topic in the let's play forum since we have enough of those already.
I like it, good thinking ano! This would be a great way for things to be sorted.

That said... I had a thought. Would it be a good idea to have a special sub-forum of this one just as an archive of the many, many threads for raocow's LPs? Most of them are never revisited (and can easily be moved back to the main LP forum if need be), and I thought it might be nice to have them all in one handy location, not mixed in with other peoples' LP threads, for easier searching. Thoughts?
Is there a way to make raocow lp threads visually distinct, like a different coloured thread title or something?

* What is and is not permissible
* What should be done if non-permissible posts are made

I think the answer to the second issue is rather obvious, because there is literally nothing regular forum users can do to stop such behavior, but if staff decline to sign on to such a thing, then having the first discussion is utterly pointless.
I will readily admit to being the second-most self-obsessed person on this web sight, but I think the fact that (a) the above was never addressed by anyone in a position to do anything about the problem this thread was made to try solving, and (b) discussion has since moved on to something else unrelated is a pretty good indication of whether or not this problem will actually get solved.

I'm not actually sure. I know the small forum I host, also phpBB, allows you to designate an icon for a thread, but that feature seems to be disabled on Talkhaus. If it was there, we could denote raothreads with :rao:

I would guess that mods would be doing what they've been doing - if things that are too spoilerish are brought to their attention, they can add spoiler tags to them, and warn if there's a repeated pattern.

I feel like this thread wouldn't exist at all if what had been done previously was adequate, though.

It kinda was, this thread mostly exists because we didn't want to put our complaining in the LP threads ( o _ o )
ImageWell it is a decent hack but sometime its just too repetitif there no level that actually pop in your face and your like oh yeah that level they all ressemble themselves and just monster along the way.

It was adequate in almost all cases, because most people are fine after a mod warns them. This thread is partly helpful to talk about the exceptions, and partly helpful just to clarify our ideas and raise awareness, so hopefully/theoretically we'll need a few fewer future mod warnings.

If you mods would happen to have some form of access to a custom stylesheet for the side then you could do it in a kinda hacky way like this:

Code: Select all

a[href$="t=17517"] { 
    color: aqua;
}
which gives this result:

It'd require you to add each and every thread in to the stylesheet manually but it'd work.

To be honest... I've been getting a little concerned about information overload in the Megaman thread too. There are some cases of dumping preemptive info and I feel that maybe those should have spoiler tags.
