NEW Suggestions Thread!

Hey folks,

So as i'm sure most of you can see, the old kitten is in a bit of a mess at the moment. Well the time has come to do something about it. The point of this thread is not just to be a random suggestions thread, but, instead it'll be a propper discussion on the things that can be done to improve KnT. If there are good ideas that the KnT community agree on, I'll implement them. There will be changes implemented.
Any ideas that could be a bit iffy will still be discussed and considered, and I'll also discuss them with the rest of the moderating team. Kev is also going to be helping me with this, particularly on any difficult issues. Realistically though, we don't want to make a tonne of changes in one big leap, so this whole process of cleaning up KnT will probably take some time, but we'll get there.

Here's an idea, although it could be time consuming. On all the main threads such as recommended gear, gen luthiery, pics of gear etc remove all the current tags which are pretty much useless as it's just been a place to spam and put some meaningful tags in. This way if someone searches for something the search results will be a bit more accurate. One of the main problems people have is that the search is pretty much useless but the tag system which is meant to allow more accurate searches has just been abused.

Considering how often people say "OMG UZE TEH SEARCH!" that is a good idea. If it's done with just the main threads too like luthiery etc then it would make search better.

Perhaps a re- jiggle of what threads are stickied, to make it easier for people new to the forum to reply to the appropriate threads, so they don't create a new thread for a topic that is already being discussed.

Ideas;-
Un- sticky the Muse Covers Thread, it is barely ever used.
Sticky the General Luthiery Thread and possibly (un)Worthy Mods.
Create a (Stickied?) thread for the Kitten Tabbers can socilise similar to what K&T Banter was until it turned into a big spam fest.

I agree about un-sticky-ing the Cover thread, although I don't think we should have all the regular threads stickied as there will be too many. Perhaps have something in FAQ detailing all of the most used threads and a link to each one.

Unfortunately, i don't think a KnT banter type thread will be made for a LONG time. I agree, when it works, it's great, but it ultimately does get spammed to fuck at some stage or another.

Kit and Tab FAQ could do with a bit of an update such as the "common threads" bit and also the non muse related stuff.

might get hung drawn and quartered for this but..

been in KnT for a long time, and it all started to go down the shitter when mods tightened and started to make these threads for certain things, it may be good organising, but no one can talk anymore, you make a thread it gets locked or deleted.

im not saying WHAMMYWHAMMYWHAMMY is acceptable obv not, but if you post people are either like, theres a thread for this.. or search..

how boring, its a forum your meant to connect with each other !

i know it wont change ! just my two cents ! haha

as far as i'm aware, the mods never really had a problem with the banter thread till all the whammy spam type shit started.

As popey said before though, in threads if general conversation breaks out, the mods aren't going to go mad. Like the thing is, myself and the other mods aren't going to go mad at the various lulz that happen, but when a joke goes too far, and becomes spam shite, as what happened with the whole whammy thing, then we have to step in. If there's a few people spamming the place with shite, and other members of the community are getting pissed off with it, then something kinda has to be done like.

i understand the want for a banter type thread, but the last two have caused nothing but problems.

If people really just want to chat then there is a banter subforum.

Trademark did you copy that list of proposed stickies from the old suggestions thread? I don't have a copy and I thought it was a great idea. I hope it's not lost forever, i'll be pretty pissed off if so.


A general point.... "all the whammy type spamming" is a misconception. The whammy meme was the latest incarnation of the kind of banter the geeks in KnT love, and it's been going on here for at least the last 3 years.

ooo nooo, i agree, im saying the banter thread IS bad idea, i guess i didnt make myself clear, its just annoying and stuff, i understand why its there.. but the forum was fine beforehand in KnT before all these new rules came into play.

in my opinion anyway, but good luck to you in sorting it out ! i wouldnt wanna have that task ! haha

i have the list tom. fear not babypuppy!

as for the whammying, it did get to a stage, just before i was made a mod, where basically every post was answered with "if you whammy your whammy, you can whammy whammys with your whammy". It was way beyond a joke.

edit:
the only problem tom with stickying ALL of those, is that there'd be way too many sticky threads. I think if toms idea about the tags was put in place, it would make search easier. Similarly, an update to FAQ with links to all of those might make it easier.
