Suggestion|Polite Request [NEW RULE IDEA]
« on: March 06, 2013, 02:24:12 AM »
 For threads in which the topic of discussion is meant to stem from a link, could I perhaps suggest that we ask that people post the story in quote format, or at least the main point of it if it's too long to quote entirely? I know a lot of us browse from our phones and I'd like to be able to participate without having to struggle with other browser windows (it actually kind of fucking sucks to click a link on my phone, so I know I'm not the only person).

 Not only that, but I feel like this is kind of similar to the video links/mandatory descriptions thing. If we ask that people do more then just post a simple video link, I think that this is a good follow-up for links in general. I don't feel like it's an unreasonable request given that, so I hope that others will agree. It may take ten seconds of extra work, but in the long run, I think it will look much neater, and allow for a more cohesive discussion - especially because the people who don't like to click links but still want to rant will have the evidence right in front of their faces. If nothing else, it'll allow some of you to feel superior when you re-quote the thing they ignored. :lol:

I think it's a great idea. I try to do this when I post a link to something but it doesn't always happen.

Brothel and FFA would be exempt I'm assuming? But yeah I agree. I do that most of the time, the times I don't are when I'm using my phone and I tend to fat finger a lot so trying to copy paste and quote is a chore :lol:

Sure, I would say that Brothel and FFA are exempt.

The Brothel and FFA are their own breed of something, so no, I don't expect anything actually important to end up in there that would need to be quoted.:lol:
