    A troll pit subforum

    How about rather than deleting trollish posts and major arguments between members that go awry, we make a Troll Pit subforum to move those posts and threads to? Rather than banning someone who’s a repetitive troll, we subjugate that person to remain in the troll pit for a period of time?

    I wanted to discuss this with y’all for a while. As I have actually seen a forum put this into practice.

    Back story: Before I joined Hip in 2010, I was part of another forum that coincidentally fell apart under the reign of a power-hungry site owner. He later got busted by the Canadian Mounties for trafficking drugs. Some of us members created a new forum where we valued free speech. This forum they built had a subforum called the Shark Tank, which was predominantly unmoderated where anything goes (except any illegal discussions that could get Treefort in trouble). Lots of members would go there to duke it out, troll and pwn other users, and just have a free for all. If a thread got too heated, a moderator would split those posts out of that thread and pit it in the Shark Tank where members could duke it out, while the original thread could remain on topic without the drama and trolling.

    What do you guys think of this idea? Any ideas on what we should name this subforum?


    (Addition:
    One important thing I'd like to point out is that a Piranha Pit would be a place for people who want to have fun. Not strictly a troll and flame-war zone. If you want to start a humor thread that is insensitive or politically incorrect, you can post it in the pit.

    Should you enter the pit, proceed at your own risk. Don't go in expecting everyone to be nice to you. It won't be anything like a lame-ass Candy Gal thread.)

      If people were bullied in that over on hf, that forum should be ashamed of itself. What a pack of fucking idiots.

          Don’t worry, you don’t have to go there. But you could end up there too and find you like it.

              Have been in one for no reason other than to be bullied by arseholes. So it's a terrible idea.

                  Yeah, i'm ready for this. I'll kick anyone's ass on the internet. Keyboard warrior life.

                  Me and Fun are like the most gangsta niggas up on this forum. I never flush the toilet after i'm done taking a shit. That's how ghetto i am.

                      I too have seen this done ! not sure what it was called (something like "Dickheads section !") a member used to get put in there for a month and could only post in that section but others could go in and out , usually giving them shit and retreating to the safety of the rest of the forum !! I like the Idea

                        I just see a bunch of 6eyes and Beach Ball threads. After a couple of weeks I'm already bored with their bullshit. It's gotten lame and predictable.

                        Beach Ball: Rev is a mean drunk. All he does is spread left wing lies. (After I give overwhelming evidence that she's full of shit)

                        6eyes: Rev pays for porn.

                        Not an intelligent point between them.

                        C/S,
                        Rev J
