Discussion in 'Community' started by - O & B -, Apr 9, 2014.
I don't venture past the Dodger board much...because there really is no need. There is an OFF TOPIC thread, an MLB thread, and other threads where general/random type stuff can be posted. I like it here, I think you guys are doing a great job, and for my money, if it ain't broke-don't fix it.
I'd volunteer to help, but I wouldn't be much help. I'm not very savvy when it comes to how this shit works. If there was any role I could play that would help out, don't hesitate to call.
you were around when i first came here, which brought the major Dodger exodus from psd. have no idea why you would assume i don't embrace change because thats about as inaccurate a statement as you can make about me. but whatever Capn's response to you was funny and thats why i liked it. i just assumed your post was sort of a nonsense starter meant to elicit that type of remark.
i hear people complain all the time about what they don't like. then what do you want to do? i like people who point out a problem with a solution in mind personally.
If you want to give me a set of keys to the car, I wouldn't mind giving her a spin around the block. I'm pretty flaky at best when it comes to actual responsibility, and I'm just smart enough to break stuff... but I'm good for a mission here and there.
I thumbed up Capn because "FUUUUUUUUUUUCK YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOU!" is his catch phrase. And I like catch phrases. Other than that I hate Capn, just like I hate pretty much everyone here.
Thanks Mousey we know you pretty much hate everyone but you're pretty damned funny about how you do it.
They call that 'humor' right? Perhaps I'll look it up...
Don't be modest, you know what humor is. I've seen your minivan.
Glad I gave you a week to chill... Look O & B, it was just a random nut bust because you asked us to "Discuss How We Feel".
Holy Cow man... I'd have to check my own nuts if I DID NOT torch you for that touchy feely shit. Gender check on Aisle 4 please!!
Whatever. I'm not now nor have I yet to ever tried to get in your face by calling you a cocksucker. Whatever. Don't take it so personal. Thick skin is the order of the day. Don't get so rattled. I care not about anyone's PSD, DSP or other pedigree. Whatever. You were there. Good. So be a sports fan or not.
Quit acting all butthurt demanding that everyone defend their "Likes" of my nut bust. Really.
Look, if I'm being friendly, and I am, learn that the next time you post something that sounds IDENTICAL to some weepy woman's whiny 'relationship' moans then expect to get called on it. As should anyone else. This is something some 'other' friends of yours ought to have taught you long ago. Mine did.
Seriously IF I had posted that drivel I'd of expected Diablo to lead the march of Irish, Mousey, Darth or especially LAFord to rain bricks on my overly sensitive melon.
If you've been around so long you likely already know that people are encouraged to speak their minds here. I did.
In rereading this thread I also noticed other than lashing back at me you never really "Discussed" how YOU feel about DSP. Well? Did you have something you wanted to share?
Were you just trying to stir up a hornets nest or, as long time DSP elder member, were you simply acting as a good host might and asking if anyone needed more hors d'oeuvres before the kitchen shut for the night?
What's crazy is that this thread is my first post in 4 months and I still rattle cages for saying nothing really..DAMN, O & B mindfucked you kids for life... Anway, Nobody posted a drivel, stop believing everything you read on the internet ... I know you stalk me on these forums when Im around because youre the first to either reply, bash, thumbs etc... Go look for yourself in my profile.. It looks to me you're kind of sensitive because you WENT OFF son, you went off... Anyway, you're irrelevant to me and this site, I hope I kept you entertained for the time being and gave you the attention you wanted...
Anyway, Im on another site, not planning on saving this piece of turd with the horrible software and members, sports forums are a dying breed... PM me or contact me through twitter if you want to know what the future is like..
and Im just calling you out for it... Who the fuck starts off the reply to someone like thisFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCKKKKK
and say you're not butthurt...You're got angry over a thread title you freak... Coming from a kid with a avatar of Hanky Panky with a baseball cap and shades.. Youre crying because I made fun of your toy....... or maybe I shouldve sound more gangsta with it like "Yo, my DSP niggas, are you down with this shit o what?" Maybe that wouldnt made you go PMSing all over this thread..Calm down, you're a nobody on this site so you have no say in anything... I havent posted here full time in a LONG ass time and still have more clout LOL!
look at the sheep imitating each other, then watch the other sheep follow and do the same thing..
Look O & B buddy why do you need to bash everyone else at DSP?
WTF did they do?
Nobody gives a shit about stalking the likes of you. Think about it. How vain are you?
You posted a thread. As an active member I saw it show up in the right panel and checked it out, saw touchy feely drivel and commented appropriately. The rest is you being history.
Threatening to post elsewhere is a riot... buh bye then.
"sports forums are a dying breed" oh and you can reach me by twitter if you want to see the future"
News flash: Twitter "followers" have been declining for nearly two years. Sorry that you had such faith in being a follower.
I post at DSP because I have met a bunch of these guys and drank beer with them at the Lair. And, highly opinionated or not, they all seemed like great guys. Well Irish is a bit gay for me but I'll deal. I shouldn't of attracted his gayness with those Levi's shorts. My bad. Cargo shorts next time.
Its nice to argue with people about sports that you've actually met in person and learned to know a bit better.
Keeps you from getting so lathered up.
DSP is not just another sports forum to some of us.
Yeah, I'm sure it will be as awesome as PSI.
How'd that work out?
Don't be a douche. If you don't like the site and want to fix it, be constructive.
If you don't like the site and want to be a douche about it, go away.
PSI? That site is long gone and I haad a much better experience there then I ever did on DSP... Im didnt make this thread to air you guys out and make myself a tool to build this site up again, I made this thread out of curiosity for you guys, not for me....That is all
First off, DSP will never be awesome as PSI was, that site didnt work out due to finances/software issues and time....
If you honestly want some constructive criticism, first have a forum for every team...Thats a good start lol
Personally, I dont like this Xenforo software stuff but if you do then so be it, my opinion doesnt matter anyway...
Make the site look presentable, have team logos for every forum, twitter feeds etc.... Recruit some writers and blogs to show some diversity, twitter is a great recruiting tool to bring in members but thats not the problem, just like every other guy who starts their own site, bringing in members is easy but making them stay and be active is the tough part, thats where your core base you have now needs to come in and keep things active, Im sure finding active dodger fans will be easy as finding the G-spot for the first time (it was easy for me) due to having a big fanbase to begin with already
It depends on what kind of members you bring in but dont have people post padding by making one word posts like 'yes' or 'no', have a discussion, explain your reasoning and argument on what the thread is about, having discussions keeps the activity up and going...
I pretty much stated the obvious above but its up to you guys to do it...You put in work and watch the forum grow to where you want it to be...
If any of guys aren't interested and want to move into something else, PM me on here or contact me on twitter, knicks_psi..Im extending my hand out as a friend so if you want to move on to somewhere else, this is your opportunity, we just started a new expendition about two days ago...Thank you and have a Happy Easter
appreciate the input, and i hear what you're saying
but rather than expand this site to become a clone of others, we want to maintain it's uniqueness
all your suggestions are great, seriously
i'm just not sure they fit what rube wanted when he created it
as you said it depends on the type of members we bring in
the new blood from the espn board was refreshing
a lot of these new guys were tired of the restrictions, like many of us were on the other sites
many of the posts in this thread would have caused a fury on those sites
here it's par for the course
and i think that, to a degree, is what rube wants/wanted
first amendment plays here
if this isn't your particular cup of tea, then maybe one of those other sites might be better for you
but you're always welcome here
