View Full Version : ChiefsPlanet Getting it out of my system: DraftPlanet


Direckshun
09-28-2010, 07:48 PM
A few years ago I went a couple rounds with a couple of the mods around here about DraftPlanet. I believe the way this forum stashes away the draft forum is unfair to people who love the draft and love scouting for the draft year-round like myself. Instead it gets tucked away for reasons I still don't understand 10 months out of the year, and then buried again shortly thereafter. DaFace and I have discussed the issue the most, he of course being in favor of prefixes.

As an insignificant piece of civil disobedience, I've been deliberately misusing prefixes as a result. And I honestly thought nobody gave a shit until it was hinted in another thread by another mod that this Direckshun guy might need to lose his thread-starting privileges as punishment.

Okay, so let me get this off my chest, so we can let the issue die a dignified death:

Why do we post on a Chiefs board? Rather than just a broader football forum dedicated to the entire NFL with no particular bias for any one team?

Because NFL forums suck. It is more fun to talk about football with other Chiefs fans. Period. Not only are we going to have more in common with each other as Chiefs fans, Chiefs fans are also a shit-ton more fun to talk to in general. Talking to a Giants fan or a Seahawks fan is weak sauce by comparison. And this forum is the best of the best, IMO.

And this board had a crucial opportunity a few years ago to stimulate year-round discussion about the draft, during the Herm years. To promote a genuinely interesting forum just as much as shitty forums like DC and Pictures.

Not just a forum to talk about the draft. We can do that on about a thousand other boards across the internet. But to talk about the draft with Chiefs fans? ChiefsPlanets is pretty much the only place fruitful discussions can get going on that front without a heavy dosage of homerism or Big 12ism. But we've stashed the forum in the shadows and it's ****ing brutally quiet there as a result. During college football season.

I just think there's no reason for it, especially when you've added the feature where you can hide the forums at the top that you don't want to see.

Bring back DraftPlanet.

So that's my piece. I'll shut up about the subject now.

I understand creating DC. The political topics unrelated, unpopular and divisive. But it's ridiculous to have a football subforum on a football board. Particularly because we have a thread categorization system that could function as a subforum within the main forum.

I think we should keep all threads (sans DC) in the main forum. And use the prefixes to (maybe even redo/simplify the categories a bit) to simulate the subforums.

Even put links to certain prefixes at the top in the way that we have subforums. This would allow people who want to find the draft threads to find them and see them. Or the movie threads or the pictures thread or whatever.

But I don't remotely understand why we have a draft subforum.

You understand creating a political forum on a football message board, but don't understand creating a football sub-forum on a football message board.

Allrighty, then.

Yes, we created the political sub forum to satisfy two groups. The vast majority of posters who didn't want to wade through the deluge of political threads that had had nothing to do with football AND were unpopular and divisive... and the minority of active, regular political posters who wanted a place where they were free to talk politics without bringing down the whole rest of the board. It was a widely agreed upon move.

But separating out one catagory of football talk from another catagory of football talk seems just stupid. Decisions like this and the gaming forum were both made (as I understand it) less for the purpose of people not wanting to see those threads in the main Lounge, but more so people can find old threads more easily.

Using Prefixes instead of Subforums solves that problem easily and brings the draft and FFL football talk back into the lounge where I think it belongs. I'd do the same with Media and Photos. However with Girly JPEG threads, I understand that keeping that as a subforum is more for discretion than access.

But Media, Draft and Games should be in the lounge, IMO.

What about a college football sub forum?

I agree 100% that there really shouldn't be a reason that the people that enjoy draftplanet, should be able to do so during the college football season.

The draft is a huge part of how this team has/is being built and IMO should be an option for posters to discuss the possible future of the team while the players are still participating in real games in college. Without it, arent we taking a big part of Chiefs discussion away from ChiefsPlanet?

What is the argument as to why it was taken away in the first place?

I don't think you can call something "widely agreed upon" when it took at least half a dozen votes over the course of a year or two to finally pass it. It's also worth pointing out that you were one of the two or three main reasons (i.e. posters) who finally caused the deciding votes among the general population to get fed up with political posts in the Lounge. It's disgusting to see you suggesting that politics brings down the whole board when the truth is that it was just a few of you rotten apples who couldn't control yourselves that created the problem in the first place.

To each their own, I guess. Some people like stamp collecting and bird watching - I don't give a fuck about those either.

To me, it's pointless. Getting all bunged up about certain college players when the vast majority of them will not only not sign with us, but never even have any real impact on anything we do. And nobody who is actually tasked with picking them gives a crap what any of us think about it in the first place.

I worry about them after they're selected.

I don't think that is accurate. There IS a Draft Planet sub-forum. It's just not visible right now because the draft is over (I presume).

So, Direckshun is merely complaining about having to use the pull-down menu (I guess).

I think his real concern is not about his own access but about the fact that menu access instead of top-of-the-lounge access cuts down on traffic in that (or any) subforum.

Right now that voice is saying your tears sure are tasty. I always love the mass beatdowns you get in the main forum because nobody here gives a shit that you're the Queen of the Radical Neocons.

Those aren't tears you're tasting, big guy.

+1 vote for doing away with sub-forums and bringing everything back into the Lounge. Use prefixes properly (punish those who don't) and everyone can filter for their own browsing pleasure.HELL FUCKING NO

All the DC people who want to do this just want to fuck with people. It would be abused every dam day. You would have mults popping up all-over-the-place to abused it as much as possible until they got banned.

During election time any non-registered people would see the inside of a monkey cage with shit all over the wall.

Nothing is worse in terms of ****ing with people in a trollish fashion than the way some people act here in the Lounge when football topics like whether or not to draft a QB with their first round pick is being discussed.

When it comes to civility, Lounge posters, as a group, have no room to talk. And you in particular have no room to talk given your willingness to drop into DC, urinate on the virtual walls, and then return to the Lounge or the girlie thread. But don't get me wrong... I like you... I just think it's important to point out your hypocrisy on this topic.

Yeah, the lack of traffic is because no one knows how to get to it. :rolleyes:

I bet theres less than 10 topics started between now and the end of the college football season in that forum. People need to stop acting like it's the same as the Media Center or the Picture forum.

There are always going to be a few people who are too intimidated to enter the draft subforum (or the DC subforum). There might also be some who just aren't interested. But it's undeniable that there is also a group that isn't quite curious enough to click on a link to see a sub-forum's topics but who just might jump in from time to time if those topics were scrolling down the front page of the main forum. Your personal habits notwithstanding, no visibility generates less traffic than top-of-the-Lounge visibility which in turn generates less traffic than full Lounge visibility. It's a pretty basic marketing concept. Location, location, location.

BTW, if billay can survive an occasional foray into DC, any halfwit Husker fan ought to be able to hang, so come on over sometime. :p

I'm not sure I agree with that. The fact that members can hide the subforum links they're not interested in kinda defeats the purpose of putting them up there in the first place. It might cause a few to wander in here and there, but I just don't see it creating a surge of traffic worthy of Direckshun's whining.

I would imagine that if it had the potential, it would be permanently in the sub-forum list. I would be interested in seeing the stats between, say, DC and Draft Planet when it IS in the sub-forum. I'd wager that the traffic in DC is more.

So, I guess it can be boiled down to this: Direckshun doesn't like that Draft Planet doesn't have another traffic?

I concede that being able to hide those links definitely reduces the benefit but I don't know how much. There will still be some who don't care enough to enter the subforum blind (through the drop down menu) but who aren't motivated to ignore the forum altogether by hiding the link. I'd probably be in that category. I usually only go to the draft forum when I see a link at the top of the Lounge with a topic that interests me.

I don't see why Direckshun doesn't just post his draft-related topics in the Lounge. As far as I'm aware, political topics are the only topics that are forbidden. Other topics, whether media or picture or draft, are allowed in the Lounge and then sometimes moved to a subforum when they peter out. Unfortunately, the mere existence of a subforum encourages nOObs who don't appreciate the unique, non-segmented cultural tradition of ChiefsPlanet to complain about topics not being in the "right forum".

it's funny that every time one of the old timers want to give me a verbal slap they bring up the girlie thread or porn. Do You know how long it's been since i even visited the girlie thread? Months, if not years ... there a many people around this place that post more "porn" than me around here now too. The reality is that, even back then for the most part, i just posted pictures of sexy girls when they were requested by someone else. Hardly porn.

As for D.C., i rarely go there either ... it's gotten much,much worse and there really isn't a point to it anymore. I visit once every 6 months, maybe. So before you talk shit, at least try and make it somewhat truthful.

Some people around here just refuse to accept that i'm different now. They throw around the word hypocrisy like it hasn't been years since i did some of the things to which they refer.

I fully support keeping the sub-forum links on the front page because it drives traffic for that sub-forum. The mods shouldn't decide.

But i also fully support for people to have the ability to "hide" that sub-forum if they decide. Availability but with Freedom to choose USED to be a core value of conservatives ... no wonder you don't understand it. :moon:

Whoa, whoa, whoa... I didn't mention the girlie thread to slap you. I'm pretty pro-porn and I'm definitely pro-girlie. For better or for worse (and I always thought it was for better), you've built a reputation as a go to guy with the girlie pics. I was just referencing that.

As for D.C., i rarely go there either ... it's gotten much,much worse and there really isn't a point to it anymore. I visit once every 6 months, maybe. So before you talk shit, at least try and make it somewhat truthful.

Everything I said was truthful, even if you've been a part of the great liberal disappearing act that's taken place in DC over the past year or so. Hell, jAZ, who was a far bigger troll than you or I have ever been doesn't even post over there anymore.

Some people around here just refuse to accept that i'm different now. They throw around the word hypocrisy like it hasn't been years since i did some of the things to which they refer.

I've never had a problem with you even if we tangle from time to time. You're OK with me, but when you paint all of DC with a broad, disparaging brush like you did in post 81, I have to point out that you aren't any better than many of us who still post there.

I fully support keeping the sub-forum links on the front page because it drives traffic for that sub-forum. The mods shouldn't decide.

But i also fully support for people to have the ability to "hide" that sub-forum if they decide. Availability but with Freedom to choose USED to be a core value of conservatives ... no wonder you don't understand it. :moon:

That's a reasonable compromise, IMO, even if it's not the best solution (i.e. the one forum free-for-all). As for me not understanding it, you seem to have jumped to another erroneous conclusion.

No need to apologize. I always knew your mind was drug addled. :p
