    I've been seeing a lot of threads and references to members posting "useless threads" in the lounge. Let me make one strong point here. IT'S THE FUCKING LOUNGE.

    I am not gonna mention the members names of people who "bash" on members who posts threads like "What's your favorite color and why"(just an example, not an actual thread). Honestly, what do you care? If you don't enjoy the thread, then don't participate. I've posted a thread like what's your favorite movie scene in the lounge. It gives the forum some color and lets members interact on a more personal level. What's wrong with that?

    DON'T GET ME WRONG
    Members that post threads that are literally unreadable, make no sense, or say things like "SEO is GOOD" in their OP need to be made fun of just a little. In fact, they need to read the damn rules.

    In conclusion: Stay positive, take action, and let's all get rich.

    I'm sure they all get the point. We don't need to be arguing about irrelevant crap on BHW with other members. We need to be sharing methods, software, giving backing to the community WITHOUT TRYING TO GET REP from it. Like the good ole' days back when I first joined. I was a lurker from around September of 2009 until I registered in FEB.

    Agreed, if you don't like it...don't bitch, just don't read it. It is the lounge after all. :)

    It really annoys the hell out of me too. Shit guys, that's what the lounge is all about. It's basically the anything goes section. Since i'm feeling so generous today, ill give you guys that bitch about lounge post some info. There's a function on this forum that lets you weed out certain sections from view if you don't want to see them (yea, fucking amazing right?). Settings (top right) > general settings (to the left) > then scroll all the way down to the bottom to "Forums To Exclude From View", follow the directions. Now lets hope there's less bitching in the lounge about useless post.

    I think the problem some people have is that they like to use the portal to view topics from all boards, and it gets clogged up with topics from the lounge.

    I don't know if it's possible to implement here, but a football forum I go on has the option to set the portal to either show only topics from the football boards or topics from all boards - could be an idea.

    Don't worry about cranky people complaining on the lounge: complaining is their way to participate, every lounge ( real or virtual) has this kind of people.

    And every one of those lounges has someone like me to tell them to quit bitching, have fun in the lounge any way they please, and make some money.
