What do we need to do to get people talking more?

Post by >THE Ben Reilly< on Thu Feb 07, 2013 4:38 am

I'd like to see a bit more participation here, and I'm open to suggestions. Anybody?

Well, for starters we need more members. I don't know how to drum up more members. I've invited a few former SNers, but I haven't seen them here. Forums such as this seem to have fallen out of favor thanks to Facebook and Twitter. I comment when I have time and have a brain.

I appreciate it, Lurker. The problem for me is that I can't really talk about the stuff I like to talk about without anonymity thanks to my stupid media job, so I really enjoy forums like this as an outlet. My hope is that trolls and/or fighting aren't necessary ingredients for an active forum ...

And absolutely let's keep posting content. I see the Google Bot paying us a visit all the time, so if we keep posting new stuff, we'll become more visible.

Boo!

Post by Caution on Tue Mar 05, 2013 3:21 am

I freed up about 90 minutes of my workday (450 minutes = 7.5 hours a week!) this weekend by moving to within a five-minute walk to work, so I should have more time soon to be on here.

I drove 20 miles into the burbs for work (and 20 miles back out) for five years. It got so annoying I found a place within a quarter-mile of work. For eight years it was great. Then I started working at a new job 25 miles away last November. Four months of that was quite enough.

That's great for you, caution. You're going to feel like a new man.

I still prefer working from home, vastly. I had to go to the office a lot a few weeks ago and for the most part I hated it. One day my boss almost made me miss my deadlines because he kept asking me questions about our new software ... guess it would have made for an interesting exchange in my performance review.

In answer to your question of nearly five years ago.... you needed more fuckeries, frottery and fitch, to be honest.
Glad I helped. Cool

You also need to get rid of the racist far right wingers, Britain First supporters, and argumentative narcissists. They would give a better balance so that decent folf could debate and siscuss thing sensibly.

Come on Andy, this argument is more tired than my dead grandma.

But there is a huge difference between discussion and sensible  debate and outright trolling and arguement and hostility for the sole purpose of winding people up. Stormee did it, and so does  Stench.

We all well know that you're aiming that pathetic jibe at Andy, sassy, Quill, veya, Lurker, eddie, Ben and myself,  nicko...

As we're the ones you're always whinging about..

Unfortunately,  if you want to line up the true hatemongers and fearmongers on here,  that queue starts over there on your side --  with Smelly', VoD and gelico standing at the head of the line,  way out in front of any of us "lefties" and "liberals".

Dont flatter yourself Nicko. You are not as borderline sociopath  as the late Stormee , Stench and Tom, but you are siding with them every time.. I bet you are calling for the return of Allakaka too.
The question  Ben , Eddie, Veya, LF and Eizil should be asking is "Do we really need any more disturbed  far right extremists /Britain first supporters on here, effectively turning it into a legal version of inaflop?"

Trump isnt right wing Nicko. He is a wannabe Fascist despot, racist, homophobic and a real threat to world peace.
Would the Americans and the rest of the world be a better and safer place without Trump?
Bloody right we all would be.

I dont think you are bad,. Yearning for the days of the Empire, yes. Misguided? Possibly. I don't  hate Trump. But like my kids generation, I am bloody scared of him, his psychotic actions and his warmongering far right stance.
My kids ask "Why have the US elected  Hitler mark 2?"
Hard to disagree.

None at all mate. I am happy to debate and discuss  nicely.
You are a worthy opponent, and whilst things will get heated, at least you dont post racist stuff like Stench, simply to provoke.
Gotta go. Bought a newpc on black friday. Bloody mare tranferring stuff from Windows 7 to windows 10.

Yeah, in theory that's right. In practice communism has and does oppress the hell out of people with draconian governments.

I like throwing the commie label around when people get to throwing other labels around in an attempt to discredit folks. Wink

The only communism that has ever existed is the Paris Commune in 1871. Not very draconian.

Join the club, Your Reverence. Join the club.

The Newsfix definition of a troll is anyone who has the temerity to disagree with Wolfie - the real forum troll.

Rolling Eyes

Senile old Fred obviously doesn't know what a "troll" actually is...

If he did, he wouldn't be falsely labelling me as such --  that silly old git is eloquent enough as to find much more suitable labels to abuse people with..

The Vicar of Dribbles certainly knows what a "troll" is --  as along with her good chums Smelly' and gelico, she is one of the leading genuine trolls here on NewsFix.

I am not a "troll"..
I have never trolled NF or any other 'site...
Just because a handful of braindead dumbarse Floptard rejects fallaciously label me as such, doesn't make it so -- no matter how hard they may wish that their word was law..

Razz

Despite all of the vacuous whinging and whining from that little gang of Floptards on here, I for one don't throw those labels around at random...

When I see people supporting fascist ideals and principles, and cheering on fascist groups and activities, I will happily call them  'fascists';

When I see people making racially-based slurs and accusations, and making white supremacist statements or cheering on neo-nazi gangs,  I will readily call them 'racists'..

And I do so, using the proper dictionary meanings of those terms --  not simply trying to add new meanings to fit some odious agendas,  unlike some of those Floptard wannabe-bullies on here.

Comments like this, apart from being puerile, are enough to put people off.    People want to debate, not get continuous playground insults thrown at them all the time.

People are put off when they see the scrolling sidebar is totally filled by two posters, one of whom would argue with his shadow, the other a racist troll looking to incite anger..

Big diference between arguing and debate.
