1) Blocking systems are for pussies. 2) Eh, it could use better pagination, but other than that, the reply system is fantastic. It beats the quoting system of most of the forums I've ever posted on easily. 3) The moderators do no more than is strictly necessary, which is how it should always be, unless like in point #1, you're a pussy.
and i hate the reply system cuz of all the separate conversations that are going on.. you're missing 90% of the thread because of the reply function unless you click on each individual reply...and who does that? and quoting people is easy to do, wtf?
Why would anybody be clicking on each individual reply? You only have to keep go to the next page unless you see a link that looks like (1 Reply), (3 Replies), and then you see the rest of the conversation that's hidden. Everybody can follow the threads perfectly fine. Maybe you're not used to it but I've been on this website for 6 years and I think it's just short of a perfect system.
No, people can read just fine. This is a problem exclusively with you not knowing how this reply system works. I told you, the past 6 years it's perfectly fine. I doubt you've used the forums for long or posted that many comments on deviations or userpages.
no, they weren't. i'm pretty certain it was because of a troll that was instigating me, and eventually i put him in his place.. so he got mad and flagged me(or idk if u can even do that here) another person was called attention to it as well before they started locking all my threads(though they weren't an asshole about it), they were just saying "oh you need to provide discussion!" and i was like, "you don't think i want to discuss what i had posted here? please...content people" shortly after my thread got locked and I got pissed and started making threads about it. I finally made one successful thread that was a complete mockery of their mods that didn't get locked. [link]
Why do you have replies to people? Everyone has separate conversations in the threads it's fucking stupid. If you COULD block someone, they shouldn't be able to post in your fucking threads or even see you for that matter. Of course you wouldn't want to see them either or enter their dumbshit threads. And the moderators are ridiculous. they take advice from fucking trolls. Don't they know that forums are meant for discussion? People aren't fucking idiots. If they don't get any replies, so fucking be it.
