Re: Comments on: CoS Forums

My comment is not necessarily on the forums, but I would like to say that I love the Halloween skin. Very nice. It is my first year being here in CoS, and the change is lovely. Good job to the staff.

Re: Comments on: CoS Forums

I totally agree with MHPFAN, the Halloween layout is awesome! I probably won't be keeping it on for too long, 'coz I expect I'll start missing my original CoS layout pretty soon.

Dumb question: (I don't really celebrate, so...)

I thought Halloween was on October 31st, not 30th. Am I missing something? Of course, this could just be my ignorance speaking...

It's already 31 Oct. in some parts of the world. (Plus, it takes work to make the skin, why not use it for more than a single day? )

And that is exactly what I am known to lack - pure and simple logic! Thanks for the quick reply!

Re: Comments on: CoS Forums

I've just seen the latest announcment. There is a comment on changing the Forum rules into threads, like the old system. What exactly does this mean? (I wasn't here during the old times)

And regarding the rules, is the Blog rule new? I don't remember to have seen it before.

Officially, all of the forums are supposed to be governed by the forum rules as set forth in the Notice Board. Practically, however, because of various problems in various threads, we've gotten away from the forum rules and been leaning more on thread-specific rules. That's really more of a band-aid approach to solve specific problems and isn't a good long-term framework.

So we're going to be attempting, as moderators, to move back to an approach of relying on the forum rules as such, and not have so many thread-specific rules. It's a work in progress...we'll see how successful it is.

As to the blog rule---can you point me to which rule you mean?

Re: Comments on: CoS Forums

I have nothing important to say but I just wanted to say that the Halloween layout is fantastic! I usually don't like such dark layouts since I have trouble reading them (I always use the Gryffindor one) but this one is so great that I just had to put it on yesterday! My favourite layout however, is the Christmas one! I love that one and I seriously can't wait for December to come so that I can put it on again! It's so bright (and easy on the eyes) and pretty with the snowflakes falling!
Sorry for babbling about such non-important thing but I just wanted to say thanks for the great layouts!

So basically that would mean that the specific thread rules would disappear but in order to make certain threads work, the general forum rules would be amplified? (in order to make the specific problematic threads work?) It seems reasonable but I find it hard to put into practice considering the very specific dynamic of some topics.

We will not warn you for the content of your journal, we will warn you for linking a site with offensive material.
But I just saw that it's not new. Last edit is from March 2006, so never mind.

The staff is discussing how exactly to do this. As you say, it will be difficult, which is why we're moving slowly and why we don't have an exact plan yet.

Yeah, it's not all that new. Blogs and journals are considered just like any other website link: we frown on linking to non-FF stuff.

Re: Comments on: CoS Forums

What "old rules" are you guys talking about?

I'm finding this confusing.

Re: Comments on: CoS Forums

The specific thread rules came into being only a year or so ago, if I remember correctly. The original rules are still on the Notice Board.

Thanks, Peg. I guess I should go familiarize myself.

I agree. I've been gone all this month so I'm just now seeing it. Boy was I shocked when I first logged on.

Great job you guys!

I'd just like to comment on how much I've enjoyed legilimency studies. I love character analysis, and this has become my favorite area to post in. Thanks!
