should DW create a "Newbies & Hazings" forum for entertaining, "sub-par" threads?
Yes, it\'s a splendid idea.
Yes, but it should simply be called: Impse
No, this is stupid.

Well, that carrots thread was some of the best entertainment I've had in a long time. Of course the thread got locked (then unlocked??) then post-helled so I didn't get a chance to add anymore to it. Today I had grated carrots mixed with a little olive oil and mayonaise for lunch.

The proposal is this: add another forum called Newbies & Hazings specifically for threads that are started by moronic newbies and / or trolls. I am pretty sure I'm not the only one who was sad when the carrots thread got whisked off to burn for eternity in post hell. So it could have been sent to the "Newbies & Hazings" forum where the hazing of the newbie could have continued.

As a way to not encourage trolls for the sake of trolling, it could be that it's impossible to start threads in the forum. The only way threads get into the forum is by being moved from another forum because they have degenerated into what the carrots forum became. You could still post replies to existing threads in the forum, but you couldn't start new threads in the forum.

How about the "Newbies/Hazings/Hellbent" forum?

Why not just allow Post Hell threads to be added to?

It'd be awesome if they implemented this.

Could be postcount disabled like in blogs?

Seriously though, the way things are now are pretty good.
Occasionally someone like goustoff comes out of the woodwork and... well, the results speak for themselves.
In that specific case I thought he was a genuine young angsty person, until the post when he talked about getting dumped in the woods or something and then having a mechanical limb which at that point he descended into troll territory...

Long story short, from what I've seen newbies get hazed enough and adding a new section just screams out come out and troll.

Let's call it "Purgatory". Each post there deducts two from your postcount and confines you to the forum for 24 hours. *evil grin*

Now THAT I like... would you sacrifice for your inner troll?

I'd rather see there be a "Best of Post Hell" thread/sticky/whatever. Let's not go too overboard here, carrots aside. :P

^THIS as well... while on the best of subject, a "Best of threads" thread/sticky too.
Cacoward for thread of the year? The participants could be "awarded" a piece of a smashed up brown Caco trophy SPISPOPD style.

I like this idea. A cacoward for best thread... would be fun, but the mods would never go for it
