Shai, I don't think badly about you so don't worry about that, and I appreciate your compliment btw - thank you.

Doom: You too, maybe I was a bit defensive and I apologize, I've always thought you had the making of a fine tosser lol

What bothers me in this whole 'arguement' is that I feel I have really tried to listen to everyone involved and be fair. In return however, I feel that very few people have actually looked at what I've been saying - nor do I feel they are trying to contribute to the discussion. It seems that if i posted the word 'blue' here a thousand times, or if I wrote out a 30000 page essay on the definition of spam it wouldn't matter at all I'd get the same response regardless of what I say

My impression is that if I ignore everyone, or if I take the time to try to reply to and really consider what has been said by others... it doesn't matter! Either way I will just be one of the evil mods out to destroy Real Deal's thing.

OK. Got it.

Next?

Poster of the Month a.k.a. P.o.t.M. :

What is poster of the month? To the best of my knowledge, the mods award a member the title of poster of the month as well as a qp - each month.

I do not know exactly how it would work, or remember how it was proposed before. I'm thinking that it could be fun to have a list of threads/posts put up for each member - and then have a vote by everyone - then no one can cry mod favortism, and as well everyone is involved.

What do you guys think of the idea? What suggestions do you have for how we should go about doing it, if we should do it?

LOL well thank you for the constructive help there OT *raises whip menacingly*

It is a valid point that people will probably get their feelings hurt, but really someone gets their feelings hurt every second - we're just providing a controlled environment for the... uhm.. hurting.. of the uhm feelings! Yeah!

So now again - suggestions? ideas? opinions? anyone?

*points at OT* You behave now!

i think POTM is a good idea, that way members can gain something personally too for trying to raise the quality of tavern.

@tossdeal, read through all complaints thread and then you might learn who the crying little baby is

I disagree, People should get a QP if earned.
It's a waste to give people who already have 5+ QP for thier threads & replies.

Basically like I been saying for yrs, Mods give QP for thier own personal taste.
People can actually have great threads & Mods wont even give a look because it is not interesting for them.

To make this a closed topic, I think if someone is unhappy here.
They should leave.
They shouldnt stay if they are not happy.

PotM.. Good ideea.. But in consideration for applying that QP, there must be some rules:

-> i think it should be taken in consideration the number of posts that have really good content, and the time it took for him to write that...( 50% of the final score)
-> also it should be taken in consideration of how many posts replied, that also have some content, and how much of a debate brought( thinking the final goal of this community is too make people write and come in touch with each other)( 30% of the final score)
-> how many votes from the other members got( there should be a survey here with 3 nomilizations of some members and everybody should vote) ( beacuse not all the members will take part at this, it should get only 20% of the final score)

POTM: We used to have it.  It was fun having the little ceremonies, but it got old fast.  Qps should be earned, not given out at the end of the month.  Some months go by with lots of great Qp worthy posts, and other months are dull.  I don't think POTM should be reintroduced.

Well then what if it's just a fun thing - without the stars?

We could make up a new stickied thread for it, where the poster's names and their threads are noted along with some sort of trophy image or something.

We could have one of our graphics artist types make up a banner of some sort and maintain the thread that way without giving QP unless a post is really worthy.

That should eliminate any misgivings about QP being given for the wrong reason , but still be something fun for everyone to participate in?

I think POTM would be a good thing for Tavern.
It might be just the thing we need to stimulate some creativity.
I know some other forums, like the Altar of Wishes have POTM, I think it would work well in Tavern too.

I'd also like to bring up IYY and Lord Woock's Guilds idea, you can find the original thread in the Turban Tribunal or just click here

I think its a very creative idea, and could be lots of fun if enough people get involved Go See!

No, they dont.
Come on. Altar of Wishes?! Thats one forum without meaningful discussion for ages now. Even the Altar mods stopped reading it.

Yep, Altar got inactive ... I remember... PotM... ah... QPs... loads of them (6 for being in PotM awards )

I wish Altar became active as it was in Feb or March... those times were awesome

Tavern PotM?! I think there was smth like that, but not with awards, special compliments... Stiven asked RSF about the PotM and he said that I received QP for table of contents help and Stiven for funny tosses in tavern... same thing happened a month before that... DS received aa QP for his funny thread about wife () and Consis for smth else...  

Implementing PotM in tavern wouldn't be useful... unless there were more than three QPs given.

But I agree with Dingo... QPs should be earned (in Tavern only )

I like the PotM idea. It sounds great. But i should become a vote(i don't know how it used to be..)

Bringing it back has got my vote. Not sure it matters, but it's there.

And i think the winner should get a QP.

I don't think PotM is gonna be a good idea for the Tavern, afterall its a place focused on relaxation, not on submitting high quality threads/posts/ideas etc..

However, PtoM could work for the Library, Altar, Other Side and Glade.

My two cents.

The other side of the monitor is the place where most good posts are, but the mods do not award too many qps there since those discusions are sometime subjective. I think a PoTM would be good there.

Bring potm back.

Not only does it help encourage members to make more constructive posts, but its also a good starting place for n00bs. You know when you get n00bs who make alot of good posts and threads but they just arent good enough for a qp, they can then be rewarded for their continual efforts.

I agree with Dragon Slayer, the thing I like best about the PotM idea is the incentive for other members to come up with some great posts.

It seems there's some confusion about what the Mods are looking for in terms of quality, especially since I keep seeing people say that the Other Side is where the quality posts are.  Of course I agree that there are a lot of wonderful posts there - but its a different type of post than what we have here. What is quality there isn't the same as here, you don't need to come up with a well researched and documented article to find a red star at the top of your post in Tavern.

In Tavern you just need to put some thought into what you're posting - and come up with something that is fun to read/participate in for everyone. I personally look to posts that I see as benefiting the community when I look for quality. By that I mean posts that renew interest and encourage everyone to participate - and of course those that are just awesme reading .

Checkout the last page in TT. Don't read the Moderators posts. Look how long these replies are. If they swear in TT, they have done the same things has DTT.

Isn't life grande?

So what you're saying then, is that we're not to look at posts by moderators because why? Do you feel that some posts were spam and some were not?

as for swearing, what word do you mean? and why is that any issue to do with DTT. you know full well that DTT was not moved because of swearing so what's your point?

I don't want to have this same discussion for the ten thousandth time, lets please do something more constructive here.
