View Full Version : A Suggestion for BC Admin/Moderators

April 20, 2005, 01:30 AM
In couple of occasions, i observed moderators concern over meaningless one-liner threads in the BC forum. I guess number of posting based user raking system is one of the major motivating factors for increasing number of meaningless one-liner posts. Also, member of the day in Stat section is also based on post quantity. Providing emphasis on quality over quantity might be a solution. Recognition of good quality threads might help in reducing rank-motivated one-liner threads.

One way of recognizing quality thread is identifying something like “Thread of the day” or “Post of the day”. In the same manner, Post/Thread of the week or month might also be recognized. But the problem is the qualitative/subjective judgment factors involved in this recognition process. Deciding a post of the day or week is a big judgmental work load on the moderators. A quick opinion poll in moderator panel at the end of each day or week may be a way to overcome this judgmental issue. It does not have to be a perfect judgment---after all it’s just a way of rewarding quality over quantity...there should be nothing serious about it. Also a judgmental limitation disclaimer note should make the forum members understand that the post/thread of the day/week has limitations and it should not be taken as any absolute measure.

Recognition of qualitative factors is always a hard thing to do. But it might add a new flavor for the forum if you guys can somehow manage to do this quality recognition job. There will always be some the margin of error, but I guess member will understand this.

It’s just something for you guys to think about. Just a suggestion… you know, giving advice/ suggestion is always the easiest thing to do!!!

one more suggestion, dont wanna open up a new thread for it, so just writing here.

the number of sticky post at "bangla cricket" forum is too many. regular members have to scroll quater of the pages to go past them. is there any way to reduce the numbers? is there anything that can be done?
here is my thoughts:
<li>Introduce yourself can be moved to forget cricket, old home.
<li>next two threads about bc members and eng vs bd matchs are pretty similer. can be merged?
<li>posting messages on behalf... can it be added under "board rules"?

well, not all actions needed to be taken but taking some of them would reduce long lists of stickies.

I agree, too many sticky threads. We need to cut a few out!
