This has probably been asked before, but how do the threads end up closed, other than the obvious "no more silly hate" reason? Is it just simple inactivity? I thought for a second about throwing a recipe o' my own into that Father's Day List of Manly Things to Eat, and then I noticed it was off-limits. DRAT~!
Though a food folder might not be a bad idea for a place called Wienerville, yes?
and there is a 1 week time limit for threads. If there are no replies after 1 week, they auto close, so trolls don't open dead threads
not that i'm calling you a troll, but that's how i understand it...
"You can't fire a gun in a confined space! What are you tring to do, make us deaf?!" "Just get out of the chopper." "What?" "Get out of the chopper!" "The crops!?" - Jack Lemmon and James Garner, "My Fellow Americans", and the reason I say "The crops?" instead of "Huh?"
Yeah that sounds like a pretty reasonable reason to close out threads after a week. But sometimes I wonder if the timeline is fair for some sections like wrestling because after a week bringing back a topic is pretty pointless... But for something like movies if you don't catch it opening weekend and catch it a weeks after (like me with unfaithful this weekend, whew Richard Gere sucks) and the thread is shut off and personally (rightfully or wrongfully) don't feel right opening another thread for the same movie.
I don't get it, everyone loves rats, but they don't want to drink the rats milk?
On a somewhat related note, what's the significance, if any, of different names being different colors in the 'active users' list? My first guess is that names in orange are ones whose profiles you've viewed, but there are a lot of people who are orange for me that I've never looked at. The green's a bit more straightforward than that, at least.
Your color coordination leads to some confusion, you know. Is this to insinuate that mods are their own gender? Which of the other genders do they mate with and how?!? One, both, or... budding?!? The public demands an answer!
Or you're just forcing the male undeclareds to declare or be shoved off with the girls.
The german translator really does pretty well -- I'm suprised! It even usually guesses pretty well about trying for the user names. Mostly. :-) Several particular favourite attempts: Mildes Irres Mannered Raumfahrer Spiff Der 5.
