The topic-starter would be able to decide whether to allow guests or not in the same way.

This completely goes against the philosophy of this forum. The owner of the forum wants guest to be able to post without registering - Period. If you want to ban all guests from your thread - or any registered members as well - the best route might be to start your own forum. Then you are sovereign.

I'm thinking about it actually. It's technically not so difficult to implement. This forum is too old and full of rude users- Period.

Excellent - it would be great to have another forum - especially since this one is so outdated. I know MacroMan had been working on a new forum - perhaps you could take some inspiration from that thread. Let us know how it goes - if your forum is any good, you might get some members.

In that case, I have to consider what makes it different from the AutoHotkey section at StackOverFlow. It's not so active overthere because the developers are not watching the posts. If the developers don't come to the new forum, it doesn't have a point of doing it.

You are more than welcome to quit visiting the forums, lest you should become just one more rude user. :roll:

No one here is unsympathetic to your concerns, but you seem quite content to continue with this troll-ish approach that will garner little (if any) favor with other forum members. You set up situations which will attract rudeness then act surprised when people are rude towards you. If you want respect perhaps you should try giving it.

When a topic-starter attracts rude users, the current forum system rather encourages them to respond while it's possible not to by upgrading the forum.

Is to allow rude posts the philosophy of this site owner? Must be kidding. They've been allowed only because at the time the forum started, there hadn't been forum software that can discourage rude posts.

I support the idea.

When a topic-starter attracts rude users...


...perhaps that topic-starter should worry more about controlling themselves and less about controlling everyone else. If you're honestly more worried about your feelings over internet banter than you are about getting a solution to your problem, then you have an issue with understanding and managing your priorities which controlling everyone else won't fix.

I don't think so. It's possible to reduce rude users at the same time getting solutions with better forum systems.

Who would be reducing rude users? You would be in your own thread, ergo your solution is still to control others instead of managing yourself.

If you ban from your thread all the people who had a solution for you because you thought they were rude, where do you propose to get an answer from then? And what if people simply begin refusing to answer questions from certain others, because it's not worth the effort to answer a question just to be banned from the thread? Now you're not only wasting your time, you're wasting the time of others who could've gotten an answer (because they don't care if someone acts "rudely") but now cannot get one.

You demand with zeal that others set aside their egos, but are you so zealous when it comes to your own ego?

The system would reduce rude users. Why one would bother to manage oneself with extra efforts while it's not necessary with better forum systems.

First of all, I don't want solutions from rude users.

And what if people simply begin refusing to answer questions from certain others, because it's not worth the effort to answer a question just to be banned from the thread?

That's a problem of those who have attitude issues, not of other nice members. Refusal of answers for certain users is already happening. And most skilled users are very nice here. So it doesn't matter but helps that those unsophisticated members start refusing to post unskilled solutions.

I think the idea is great.

Look, this is a good example response by a user who lost his mind and certainly the suggestion can prevent this kind of situation.

No, this is a good example of a guest who insists on behaving like a troll and gets treated like a troll in return. You want everyone else to bear blame for their actions (according to wrongs done to you) but you want no part of accepting any blame for yourself.

But if you're so certain you're right, get to work making your own forum with the necessary modifications. Then we'll see.
