Subject: REMINDER: PLEASE DON'T FEED THE TROLLS!!!!!

Written By: CatwomanofV on 06/18/15 at 11:18 am

Once again Inthe00s has been hit with a spammer. I know it is very tempting to respond but please don't. Just report them. There are some people out there, the more response they get, the more encouragement they get. If their posts are just wiped away without any response, they are liking to just go away and not return (which we all hope). I know it has been said before and I will repeat it:


PLEASE DON'T FEED THE TROLLS!!!!!!!!

Was that particular one reported anywhere or just removed?

there was no feeding a trolls....


that person is not coming back to that thread..... they will return later to repost some other stupid link but they are not trying to be the next _________ insert name of any number of annoying past trolls...


Also,  the original post was reported by me yesterday and, presumably, by you Cat, and jeff (since he fudged them)  and probably by Philip.... so the proper steps have been taken...

in the mean time no harm having fun until the thread is deleted....


it's only troll feeding if the troll is active and being baited by the members to continue their trollish behavior.

I KNOW it's fun. I don't want to rain on anyone's fun. But, that is what our "fearless leader" has always told us.

I was told that it is harder to remove threads that have multiple posts than it is to remove a thread with just one post. So in order to make it easier for the person who has to remove it, we should all do our part.

The problem is is there's a difference between a troll and a spammer. 

We've been hit by both...a lot. Spammers are annoying. Trolls are disruptive.

While spammers are boring they post and go away. Trolls stick around to see the carnage they leave behind. Some of my worst times here and some of my best times here have been specifically related to trolls.
Back in the day there were several people who would regularly engage in a full frontal assault on the trolls. The posts were witty and the banter was entertaining.  Most of those people are gone now so there are a few trolls who post among us.

It is true that we don't get as much traffic as we used to (since Facebook came into existence), but the trolls are out there. The do crop up from time to time and they are booted off as fast as possible. Sometimes we get the same trolls under different accounts. There was one guy who was a member and he was basically spamming the boards with what he called "decadeology." If he had one or two threads on it, it wouldn't have been a problem but he posted about 20 threads on EACH board and we all got sick of it. When he was asked to stop, he still continued. He was finally banned-along with anything to do with "decadeology." (I'm sure you saw the thread about what it is and why it is banned.) That guy came back again under a different name/account and once again started spamming the boards. Once again he was banned. The guy came back I don't know how many times. Sometimes it took a few days because we realized it was him but he always was spotted because he would do his old thing of spamming the boards with his "decadeology." It has been awhile since he tried it but he will come back. My guess, he will try it again.

So, since Facebook was accessible to everybody on the Internet, which I might believed happen in 2007, InThe00s never got the same online traffic it got? Well, Facebook's main purpose is to have people socialize with their friends, family and relatives, along with their acquaintances. While InThe00's main purpose is to have people talk about the pop culture from past decades, along with making people nostalgic about their childhoods. So, how is Facebook to blame with the traffic?

How is this troll going to try posting pointless decadeology threads on this website? Isn't it already banned from the website, while having many people here disgracing it?

Decadeology seems to still be happening here. Not on the same level it was but its still thriving in the 90s and 00s boards



It's not completely accurate that the boards died when fb came along...the boards were still thriving for years after fb became popular.  Many of us however became more than just posting buddies. I'm real life friends and fb friends with many of the former members from here.



And yes decadeology is banned but it's still possible to post it. Most of the moderators are not as active as they once were so, as I mentioned, posts slip through. 

The thing is all these nostalgic posts pushed the regulars away. Once they left the gates were open for more to come in.  It became a losing battle so really all the 90 kids ended up winning.  They think they are having new discussions but for every new post that started (in a decade thread) there's probably been several discussions exactly like it that came before it so it's just rehashing the same-old same-old over and over again.

The site reached its peak in 2009 when it had over 449K posts and started to decline in 2010 when it had 292k posts.

In 2014 there were just under 90k posts. 

So far for 2015 we are just over  77k posts.

So, 2009 had a lot of posts and ever since 2010, we started getting less posts? Well, I can get that this website is like 17 years old (hence the first posts made here in 1998), and that we really talk about the 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s and 2010s a lot. But, how does that get less traffic from this website? You guys need to advertise more.

Like I said most of the people who used to come here left for various reasons....one of them being most of the topics became repetitious.  There's only so much you can say about certain aspects of pop culture without repeating yourself.

We do.  But that's only part of the reason why I came here.

I came here because I love the nostalgia of the era in which I was a part of, which was mid-1970s to mid-1990s, and I always look back on it with such fond memories.
I also love the events that happened during that time.  I'm just really into the music and pop culture that happened in my time.  It's fun for me to look back on those days and think "wow what an eventful time that I lived through."  I still want to look back on those times as good times. Not that I was ever a "party" girl during my teenaged years but I always managed to have fun during that time.
Now that I'm 39 next month I want to have fun and have all of those good memories to look back on.  ;D  I think that a lot of us "old timers" want nothing more than that.  ;D

90's and 2000's kids like to discuss those decades the most because those were their "days" so to speak. The era besides the current time that we can identify with because we were there. I like discussing them too for that reason, but I do see where it's repeating itself. The comparisons to different eras like how the 2000's mirrors the 70's and etc. I don't think are intentional decadeology to be disruptive. If you look hard enough you can find similarities between anything. I'd rather discuss things besides just pop culture of those times, because it is getting beaten to death. The 10's is also my era because I'm living in it and you really don't have to be a certain age to like and experience things. I just may not be the target age for certain pop culture anymore.

That was Chucky's doing. At first, our ranks were based on different kinds of penguins like Emperor, Chinstrap, etc. Then he changed it to cartoon penguins like Chilly Willy, Tuxedo Sam, etc.  You will noticed that I am Opus and you are Nestor le Pingouin.

That was Chucky's doing. At first, our ranks were based on different kinds of penguins like Emperor, Chinstrap, etc. Then he changed it to cartoon penguins like Chilly Willy, Tuxedo Sam, etc.  You will noticed that I am Opus and you are Nestor le Pingouin. Now, it is just something that we all have accepted and even carried on with. I can't tell you how many Christmas cards I have received from members with penguins on them.

He is the one who started it all, and comes on here on most days to make sure things are functioning on the site as they should.

Do you treat him like he's the god of this website? All he did was create the website, along with having loki 13 being the admin of the arcades. There's not that much staff in this website, despite having other people become moderators at various boards.

No, we don't treat him like a god-but he does have final say. But, he is very open minded. In fact, many of the subboards were ideas from other members. If there is a problem (whether it be a tech problem or personal problem), you can PM him and he will address the problem.

As for mods, right now it is pretty quiet but there have been times when there have been flaming wars going on. We had 2 head mods (plus Chucky) and other sub mods.


If you check this out:  http://www.inthe00s.com/index.php?action=stats  You can see how active this board used to be. When there were a lot of people making a lot of posts, you have to watch things a bit more closely. There were some pretty nasty people over the years. Some didn't really hide it and were booted pretty quickly, others snuck around in the shadows and was finally outed and they were booted. But now, we have our usual who post on a regular basis and like I said, it is pretty quiet right now. The mods are not needed AT THE MOMENT. And most of the regulars here keep an eye on things. We all love this place (which is why we keep coming back here) and want it be a nice place to come to.  And Chucky knows that we are keeping an eye on things and will let him know if he needs to attend to something.

Once again Inthe00s has been hit with a spammer.




Cat


Seems like we're being hit by yet another. This is the third time this week in which one user in particular is registering and only posting spam posts. First he was making new threads; now he's replying to random ones by making spamalicious links. I've already pm-ed Chuck.

It has been awhile since he tried it but he will come back. My guess, he will try it again.



Cat


When was the last time he did it? For some reason, I am skeptical that he'll do it because I have seen him on another website and he is quite civilized there.

How is this troll going to try posting pointless decadeology threads on this website? Isn't it already banned from the website, while having many people here disgracing it?


By the way, you've probably seen that person on PersonalityCafe.
