I suppose with the veritable cornucopia of worthy topics on the mgoboard this offseason I feel like starting my own RCMB-worthy post. I considered a ""hot or not" thread, or perhaps a "bump when you just smacked your b girlfriend" thread, but then inspiration struck:
With all the "for a day" front page posts, why not throw it out there. What would you change if YOU ran mgoblog?
Personally, I'd get rid of that CEFH douche. Lot of paint chips consumed in that one's childhood to be sure. Then I would bring back a merit based point system.
Ah yes, I suppose I did have a point. It is my contention that bringing the old "One Man, One Vote, Two Points" system back would return many utils of fun/entertainment to the blog, as well as some level of accountability.
Sad as it may be, back in the day having one of your comments/posts/diaries pos bombed was kind of a little thrill. Positive reinforcement if you will. Made you want to be a better poster.
Now seeing these poor impotent posbang threads just seems sad. Just watching these poor dejected bastards going through the motions out of sheer nostalgia...It makes a man yearn for days gone by.
Back in the day, a worthless post like this one could have been negged to oblivian.
There were consequences for a man's actions. Fortunes were won and lost at the turn of a phrase. It was an exciting time.
This subject has been broached here
but a review of the literature doesn't reveal much. Was there a reason merit-based points went away? Does anyone really like the new system?
I threw together a little poll just for kicks, you can throw in your opinion if you've got time. Dont expect it will change anything, but I dont know...Am I the only one who misses the way of the posbang?
Which do you prefer?
Enough of my tired ideas though...What would you guys change?
