Thoughts on deleting the 3000+ message chat?

huhtikuu 29, 2022, 4:56 pm

Viesti ryhmäsi ylläpitäjältäI believe we should shut it down. It's causing people computers to overheat, break down, or even just shut off completely. Please give me your thoughts on it.

This member has been suspended from the site.

yeah its a big part of the history of this group we should lock it or somehow save it somewhere

I agree with you covid but I do think we should check and check again that we have a list of the sites including all of them or all the ones that arent like shut down github projects (seen a lot of those lately). That is at the very least, of course, for if we can't keep it stored somewhere.

Anyone who can load the page and who wants to go through looking for sites that are worth sharing is welcome to make a list in a new thread.

I tried digging through that and other threads at one point. I mostly saw nothing better than pirating sites. In my opinion, it's one thing to get around the nonsensical filters on school-owned or shared computers to view legal distribution sites. It's another to endanger computer network for stolen work that will likely be blocked the next time you visit, anyway.

Viesti ryhmäsi ylläpitäjältä>1 Covid_Karin: We don't have the option to delete or hide the thread entirely. There's no feature for that in the group admin tools.

What we as admins can do is rename topics to add warnings (like "WARNING: TOPIC MAY RETURN ERRORS: My school has everything blocked") -or- to add instructions ("DO NOT REPLY: My school has everything blocked") -or- to add categories (like "OLD CHAT: My school has everything blocked" vs. "CURRENT CHAT: unblocked websites and games").

Äänestys: Would you like admins to rename the topic in some way?

We can also make sure someone checks the thread for a while to shoo away members who continue to post in it. That could either be with admonishing posts or to go as far as to temporarily remove members from the group.

I have learned today that each poll must be in its own message. Here is the second poll again.

Äänestys: Do you think the thread with 3000+ messages needs heavier moderation?

Äänet tällä hetkellä: Kyllä 4, Ei 3, Epävarma 1

I think we should rename it. Then we can have someone tell anyone who talks in it to use the other chats.

>8 Drystol: prolly the best idea, if you really wanna look at the most recent posts on the 3000+ one you gotta scroll, you cannot click the jump to unread, it will crash idk

toukokuu 13, 2022, 9:47 am

just delete it no one talks there anymore

toukokuu 13, 2022, 9:56 am

>10 Drakics: see >6 aspirit: we cannot delete the thread, only individual messages one at a time, and that's only if the page loaded each time.

toukokuu 13, 2022, 9:59 am

Looks as if renaming it wouldn't bother anyone in the group. Getting that set up now.

toukokuu 13, 2022, 1:29 pm

i cant belive you can only send 30 measeges a day, kinda stupid ngl. its not letting me sned more

toukokuu 13, 2022, 2:57 pm

is that why you didn't respond back to me?

toukokuu 13, 2022, 3:00 pm

>13 luciferzap7: The limit is to reduce spam on the site.

Try putting more of your thoughts into each message.

toukokuu 13, 2022, 3:01 pm

wait people spam on here?

toukokuu 13, 2022, 3:07 pm

>16 Araysh: Usually author spam. Buy my book! My friends say it's the best thing on Amazon!

Spam Fighters (they're a group) and the LibraryThing team tend to shut spammers down quickly, and the spam messages mostly show up in the LT introductory groups such Book Talk, not here. You might never see it.

toukokuu 13, 2022, 3:08 pm

oh ok

I should probably note that the system counts private profile messages and posts in Talk together. I could be wrong, but I'm fairly certain the limit is for all types of "messages".
