Default What about a grown up section of the forum?

Not to sound like a prick, but has any thought been given to having maybe a sub section of the forum that is for those who just want to talk about movies and blu without dealing with all of the same tripe over and over again?
Like a "members only" forum, where adults can post.
I do not mean like a forum with porn conversations or anything, but a forum where you have to agree to things before you are allowed in, have to have a set amount of posts under your belt and if you post "guys when are we getting the matrix????" or "zomg paramount is secretly against blu ??!!!" then you are no longer allowed to post in there.
If you post "zomg this guy at bobsbaitshackandhighdefnews.com said that hd dvd was cheated by blu here is the link!!!" back to the kiddie board.
If you post "lets make a petition for Jumanji on blu!!!" then back to the main board for you.

I know that there are many many many people on this board that feel the same and would enjoy the chance to have a small less cluttered playground.
And then the rest of the board can continue on and as people decide to enter the other section they are welcome to it.

Sounds good to me. The post count criteria is a little troublesome, as I'm sure there are people that have just as much or more knowledge of the subjects discussed here, but don't post that much or are just joining.

Maybe a post count based thing for starters, then those initial people can invite others, and be held somewhat accountable for the actions of those they invite.

You will give the people of Earth an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you. They will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders.

I like the idea of a trash forum where those posts you mention could go. That way there would be a place for those people who just like to ***** about HD-DUD or whatever clever name they choose to call it.

And then the rest of the board could be for actual BD talk.

yeah i know what you mean about the post count thing cause maybe people with lesser posts can be just as informative and mature as people with a few hundred or more posts.
the idea of taking someone off the board who makes dumb posts was a good idea tho.

Hear, hear! That's actually an excellent idea, but might cause a bit of a backlash amongst other users - besides, there are users over 500 posts who don't necessarily act - how did you put it? Ah - grown up.

Hmmm, speaking of a trash forum, if the thread ratings system were taken a little more seriously by the members themselves, the problem could solve itself rather quickly. With a simple script, it would be easy to close automatically or "trash" the terrible threads with 1-star or no-star ratings.

I'm attempting to branch out from other A/V forums and post here, but I'm afraid at this rate that it's going to be a long, long time before I would reach the proposed 500-post threshold to sit at the adult table. Meanwhile, and while I hate to admit this, there are posters on this site with postcounts in the thousands who have yet to say anything intelligent or even on-topic.

Awesome idea. I say 700+ posts. And it can be called the blu-ray.com vip lounge forum. Yes. We need black lights and cake now.

Sounds like a swell idea. Let's not stop there, let's segregate even further . We can segregate by race, sex, religion. Or we can just deal with the fact some don't have the intelligence as others and ignore irrelevant posts

When said irrelevant posts take up half of the topics on the home page, it becomes quite cumbersome.

I know I agree with you. But the whole exlusivity thing on an open forum doesn't sit too well with me. And by the way anyone who plans on attacking me for my comparison I was only kidding with that example

I heard from one user that trying to figure out a way to search through old posts is not very easy or fast. If it's really tough for many newcomers, maybe a simple search bar with open box at the top of the page would help that. I'll say it took me a while to figure my way around the search engine early on.

AVS has something like it, and many other forums do it also.
It would not be fair or easy to hammer down on posts all over the forum, so the better alternative is to have an additional section for those that want to relax.
I think it would be more unfair to be harder on the other sections of the thread, and it would also give people something to look forward to.

I honestly don't know how the search could be made easier . . . type in what you're looking for, or the poster, and that's it.

QFT, though I suspect that's endemic to any public forum.

Some people can't, or won't use the search function and perhaps we need an educational/motivational campaign to promote this.

Others simply like to hear themselves talk, and that can only be dealt with via more stringent moderation.

Having said this, I believe we're in a temporary news-overload phase as a result of the many recent events in the format debacle. Hopefully, things will calm down in a few weeks.
