change long subforum dumbname

Look can we make the YAVP/YASD/CiP forum say that instead of being all exclamation-y and trailing off with "And characters in progress too"

it just looks like an accident, especially when CiP is the most interesting use for that forum anyway

I think everyone knows what those initials mean by now

Why is the CiP part even there? Those should just be posted in dungeon crawling advice.

what if you want to brag about your cool char but don't want any silly plebeians who think they know better than you to give you their stupid advice

Re: change long subforum dumbname

Actually people who post in-progress characters to advice get yelled at to go to CiP. Which is silly.

I think there's probably a better arrangement for the Advice / YASD|YAVP|CiP / CYC forums. Maybe:

Discussion (YAVP(?), "Best Artefact", "how does stealth work" threads go here)
Advice (CiP, "which weapon is better" threads go here. Maybe YAVP goes here too)
CYC (more purely devoted to silly)

?

Re: change long subforum dumbname

As I've said to njvack elsewhere, this leaves a "purely devoted to silly" subforum that will be of questionable usefulness; CYC was recently described to me as Tavern's /b/, and removing all the actual non-joke content from it will only make that more true. What are the moderation rules for a General Crawl Discussion subforum, or the rules for the new discussion-free CYC?

Of course, I also have plenty of reasons to question my judgement re: what the Tavern wants and/or needs right now so I'm not really confident in my disagreement, which means I'm at full-on Charlie Brown levels of wishy-washyness here.

I don't think the person in question had actually spent any time on /b/, tbh

Re: change long subforum dumbname

If by /b/ you mean the only place on the tavern that allows furry porn threads and a place where people play masturbation roulette and occasionally make a thread dedicated to laughing or cringing, then no, that's not at all accurate.

If by /b/ you mean its the everything else board, which is what /b/ is suppose to be but isn't at all, then I agree that its a good description of CYC.

People use CYC for a lot more than just jokes. Though I will say there are a lot of jokes. There's lots of general catch-all discussion about things like music, life, and other games. It makes more sense in my head to have a section for talking about Crawl, a section for asking questions about Crawl, and a section for talking about whatever else.

As far as moderation is concerned, a general Crawl discussion forum would be for serious discussion (and admittedly there would be some shot-calling on your part here) regarding the game, along with YASD/YAVP bragposts with no advice sought. Advice would be for any OP that asks a question of the forum. (Perhaps requiring a question sentence would be mandatory). This includes most but not all CiP reports. CYC could remain much as it is now with the exception of tier lists and complaining and bcadren workshopping and things being in general Crawl discussion.

I know for example that I have posted several satirical threads- personally I would self-moderate these threads into CYC, and I think most posters who make posts like these would do the same. Again, this requires some calls made on behalf of the moderators as a general Crawl discussion forum might indeed be a tricky thing to navigate, but I think people would quickly get a sense for it.

idk if we've had furry porn on CYC specifically, but there's definitely been some weird porn posted in CYC

It probably goes without saying, but I would love this change.

Somebody posts 10 images(each post ends in a 0-9, and its random what one you get kind of) or sometimes more depending on how many digits into the serial number of each post they want to go, and then whichever one you get you have to masturbate to.

Usually they have mostly good looking models(I don't think so, but I guess they do) and then a few really disgusting ones and if you get the nasty one then you have to fap to it anyway and you can't stop till the truck is unloaded.

Thats what masturbation roulette is. I think its stupid, but apparently a lot of people think otherwise. :roll:

most of the stuff you post isn't actually porn even if you insist it is.

i will admit to it being weird though.

Re: change long subforum dumbname

This thread is a goldmine, I came here for a genuine suggested and instead ended up assblasting my sides into orbit from laughter.

More seriously though, I do agree that CiP belongs in advice, and I would definitely support njvacks idea that he posted about having Advice, CYC, and discussion rather than the status quo. All memes and furry porn aside, there are some good ideas floating around this thread.

Don't forget about the dart board. It's rather empty and can serve well as a dumping ground for various personal YAVP threads, if this is indicated on the Index Page.
