Request

Hi.
I hate taking part in complaining and all that, but..
I'd like to propose a certain level of moderation of the QouteDB.
I was recently insulted/mocked there in quotes, that, are not really quotes..since no one ever said them.
A member here invents a quote and adds it, possibly because he was angry at me.

I don't like being the target of such jokes, can something be done about it?

the thing is, our beloved wacko forgot his password or something, so he can't make any changes.

I personally suggest that everyone who abuses the quotesdatabase should be hung upside down at his toes above a horde of angry homosexual chimpansees. (of course they are of the same sex as the violator)

But that's just me...

Yes, I agree. Even though I'm the one who added these stupid quotes, I believe new quotes can be added only with the permission of the mods.

Yeah well, it's fucking annoying to have quotes like that displayed when i enter MBN.

People here can vouch for me when i say i'm not a member who complains a lot, but i don't see why i have to put up with such shit.

So morshem, if I fix those monkeys for you, do you let me hang you upside down and let them rape you? If so I'll come to you tomorrow.

Isn't it possible to disable some quoteIDs to be shown as random quotes at the MBN?

I might make a new version of the QDB with a rating system, so you can give quotes positive or negative points (like seen on bash.org (temp offline)). And an admin screen to delete the quotes that aren't supposed to be there at all (marked by users).

The only problem is to make sure every member can only cast one vote per quote. Shouldn't be too hard, but I need to know how vB gets the member's info from a session/cookie. I hope El can help me with that.

No, I don't think that would solve any problem. I think what really bothers Anakin is the fact that these stupid quotes are on the main page of the MBN, so he has to see them every time he comes there.

I think that's a great idea!

hey hey boy no need to get hostile

I just propose a system like any ordinairy news-system: you submit a quote, it gets sent to the list, and the moderator just selects which quotes can get on the site and which can't easy yet extremely effective

*smart*

Annie- I know how you feel, the abuse of the QDB is a damn shame.

We need a QDB mod, or someone/ who will filter the crap. All quotes should be included with a log/link to the actual quote itself.

- I agree to the first part. Only with the scoring system, everyone will be a QDB mod somehow. The fake/crap quotes etc will be deleted eventually by a real mod if marked as so by the users.
- I disagree to the second part; it's still for fun and it shouldn't become this official.

There cant just be a mod who selects the quotes. It will be damn biased.

Wacko- why is it wrong to ask people to verify quotes?

Gustav- You don't think that the system as it is now isn't arbitrary? People can put whatever they want in, regardless of who it affects and/or the truth of the quotes themselves.

I think that we need a rating system, and also some guys who checks the quotes every now and then and removes the aggressive ones so to say.

Can I suggest that we have a set of rules to prevent the thing getting spammed? I have thought of a few...

- IRC quotes must be shorter than [X] amount of lines

- No Tonnie or Joop jokes. Please! They're just not funny at all.

- No quoting yourself? A lot of quotes where people have quoted themselves aren't funny either... let other people be judges of your humour (or wisdom).

- No fake quotes

These are just suggestions. Not compulsary, but would make the QuotesDB ALOT better, imho.

Its pretty stupid with those who quote themselves since they probably just write what they do to add it in the quotedb...

I totally agree, it actually seems like perfect common sense to stick to these rules. Too bad not everybody has it

Having someone else adding your quote can make you proud ("yay! I'm funny!")

The long quotes are only annoying at the MBN forum index, but they're usually not as funny as the strong oneliners in the QDB.

I wonder, EVERYONE here agrees on the 'basic' rules, and not ruining the Quotes Database with crap and such...so who the fuck fill it with crap?
