Request to stop the proliferation of Ranking System Complaint threads; suggestion...

Request to stop the proliferation of Ranking System Complaint threads; suggestion how to easily accomplish that.


MODS/ADMINS:

I would like to see ONE AND ONLY ONE "official" thread complaining about the ranking system.

ANY AND ALL other threads complaining about the ranking system should be combined into this thread, past, present, and forever more.

It is ridiculous that somebody starts a new one of these every few days. I believe right now we have one on page 1 and one on page 2, and that is just what I saw for today. There are plenty of others.

Let's put an end to the proliferation of these thread - ONE THREAD PLEASE. Even if it is a few pages back, if it is the OFFICIAL RANKING SYSTEM COMPLAINT thread, it will be easy enough to find.

And we don't need to start a new one for this - just take any one of them, change it's title, and start COMBINING.

Mods/Admins: I see what you've done today. Looks pretty good. Is it going to be continued - was there a policy decsion or was this just a quick clean up to take care of it for today?

(I noticed Volcana started another!! rankings thread today?!!?!! ) I did not list it here since it was combined.

To rebel? I strongly suggest you to avoid doing it again because that could lead to infraction or suspension if it's intentional. Considering how much effort we put into cleaning the place, provoking fellow posters or members of staff is not funny at all.

Glad to see our work is appreciated (which should make you think we do take into account your comments). Keep reporting.

We are trying to agree on how to deal with it in a more consistent and obviously continuity. Please be patient.

I think that's enough for now.

Le temps de la colère, les femmes
Notre temps, est arrivé
Connaissons notre force, les femmes
Découvrons-nous des milliers !
