    The recommended posts index makes a return after a prolonged absence. It is now updated once every night (GMT).

    Lets just hope the quality of the recommended posts improve, otherwise this may be a brief revival.

    There's a typo at the top of the page, it says Recommeneded.

    You have to wonder about the way certain clans rec everything that their clan mates do.

    The rec system is a joke.

    You (along with the rest of us) already heard it.

    We didn't laugh because it's not funny.

    But it's still a joke, just a bad one.

    I think that's a step in the wrong direction.

    I posted this in site ideas back in July '05...

    "I do agree that sometimes it is a waste of time looking at this section, as evidenced when posts by katty dominated a while back.

    What I propose is this: Expand the recommendations concept, to try to make it more worthwhile. I find I mostly rec posts when I have a little laugh out loud, or when I think a political point that I agree with is well made. As things stand, both of these posts would receive a generic rec. What I propose is that different subsections of recs be introduced, for example...
    LOL'ed for the funny ones, and
    A post of Bushian eloquency and brilliance for the political ones. Other categories could be
    Yey, he hath spoken for the ones which support religious idealogies well,
    The naysayer sayeth nay well for the posts which argue against the presence of god well,
    Eureka! for good ideas in the site ideas,
    OOOOO, that's gotta hurt for good goads in the clan section,
    The wise one has spoken for the brigade who rec all of Russ' posts."

    Thread 26003

    Expand the rec system, don't get rid of it.

    D

    [EDIT] I don't mind if the category names are changed.

    The vast majority of those recommended posts are pointless bickering - what are you trying to achieve with this page? It's not at all informative nor educational. IMO it will only encourage more bickering. You could do all the coding Ragnorak suggests but a far simpler solution is to get rid of recs. I think the site will not lose anything by doing this, apart from spamming from people desperate for them.

    Where did "_____'s public forum posts" go? There used to be a link in "my profile".
