As pointed out by Jennifer, JV has really become overran with.. Well.. People that resemble leeches. They are literally sucking the life out of JV. I remember when there were actually some quality threads, with quality responses. Yes, some fulfilled with arguments followed with consequences, but still. The fact that they were more than one word responses, defeats the negativity.
I've been around JV since 2008. It's a great site overall. I used to average so much time on the site, now I can barely stand to come on it, because the posts are; as previously stated, pictures, one words, or completely irrelevant.
So, lets take a stand. People who've been here since the start, people who just joined. Lets actually make JV the community it used to be.
Some simple guidelines to solve SOME problems.
No more "This VS. This Threads"
Seriously, what the hell is the point, it's bound to get one word responses, and it's just a nice reason for you to post. You don't even have to voice an opinion, you just have to post. In all honesty, it's stupid. Sure, one of these every now and again, is fun, and I enjoy them. But I'm so sick of just seeing these.
No more "Chained Threads"
You know exactly what I mean here, you know how you see a "Do You Think, Who Is The, Whats The, Best/Worst, Do/Don't" They are just annoying, a few is fine, but EVERY TIME THERE IS A THING ON JV, THERE SOON FEEDS SOME INNOCENT MIND, AND CAUSES THEM TO MAKE MORE. I don't know why, but it's starting to overflow and get annoying.
No more "Picture Only Responses"
Yeah, sure, they are funny, but make sure it's not the same pictures over and over again. It's just as bad as spam, and eventually kill conversation.
If you see someone posting one word responses, it practically is spam, report it, quote it in your reply, letting them know it is irrelevant. Of course everyone has the right to post, blahblahblah, but when it's sucking the life out of JV. It's where you should draw the line. It is YOUR COMMUNITY YA'KNOW.
Sorry, but in all honesty, what is your say in someone blogging it. It's just as much spam as "TEH DRUMS" (Lol, the good ole days) But if you think someone should have blogged their thread, keep it to yourself, it's not going to change the fact that they already have created the thread, you just don't need to voice in on how unnecessary their thread was.
What do I mean, by quality? I mean more than this.
So lets give it a shot JV. It's up to us as a whole to complete JV. It is what we make of it.
Post anything resourceful that might count towards rebuilding JV.
