    Is there some kind of way to catagorize the movie threads?

    Seriously, most of them are pretty similar, and usually end up in nerd rage and fighting. ..and if were up to me would be Locked/Closed/Deleted.

    There's a lot of new people who only seem to post threads to incite fighting or bickering amongst other site members.

    I for 1, grow tired of it, as it seems to spread like a hate plague over to all the other threads.

    I think the mods need to tighten up the ship so-to-speak.

    I am starting to see a lot of threads like this all over the site now.

    I don't know about the rest of you guys but it's turning me off from wanting to be a part of this community.

    Thoughts?

    I think there should be one discussion thread per DOTM character, one thread dedicated to discussing the film, a master thread for all trailers and TV spots, an eventual master thread for screen caps, and a thread relating to actual critical reviews.

    I agree.

    That's an excellent idea.

    I agree with hating the hate threads, but does this really belong here?

    I agree but I think people just need to be smarter it isn't all on the mods they are doing their best because they are busy and have lives too and it is insanely busy on the boards because of the movie release, heck half the time I can't even get on the boards. But I understand where you are coming from as it is frustrating but I think people on these boards in general just need to grow up and smarten up.

    We've got like 3 or 4 Shockwave threads, equally as many Ironhide threads, and Optimus Prime Appreciation and Unappreciation threads. This is getting out of hand. I can't really blame the mods, though. A lot of people just aren't bothering to think whether or not their thread(s) would be considered redundant. Then again, search is down so....

    I think may'haps the mods should take down the new thread button and set up a thread for each discussion topic, and if necessary, add new ones when needed.

    But the mods are busy, so whatever.

    I agree. I'm new here, but I feel a little overwhelmed with all the different threads. Some of which I've seen multiple similar titles and subjects as I surf deeper into the abyss.

    Please use the report post button on any thread where you see blatent duplication or fighting.

    If possible, include link to original thread the one you're reporting is duplicating.

    The report post button is under everyone's name, on every post, near bottom, looks like this: [​IMG]

    This forum is a bit of a madhouse right now, so bear with us.

    My only complaint (and none of it is directed at anyone behind the scenes on this site) is that there seems to be way too many people with post counts in the single figures just posting shit.
    But Tony is right, if we see stuff like this, there is a formal way to air your grievance, so to speak.

    Tony: If there's anything else I can do, aside from the report function, let me know.

    I will let you guys know.

    The other option - just embrace the chaos this is and have fun with it. It will only be around another week or so, if that.
