NO. ask chaki still serves a function imo. the church should be its own independent board.

deeznuts, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:27 (eleven years ago) link

lol what function?

idea of "The Church" board as proposed in that thread will only lead to it being another type of idme/ask a drunk type unused board that's trolled every once in a while by heave ho or old bertie dastard and i think we can all agree that we don't need another of those

renaming ask chaki! The Church otoh brings some lolz and also encapsulates what ask chaki! is, namely, the spirit of nu-ilx

i vote YES

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:34 (eleven years ago) link

it serves the function of nostalgia & giving dom a haven to post threads that will be locked w/in 15 minutes

if it has to be b/w church-board & chaki-board sure i vote church. but i am not for removing boards from the framework here. xp

deeznuts, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:36 (eleven years ago) link

i vote that "ask chaki" remains "ask chaki" for the eventual lols when new people ask who chaki is and we attempt to explain.

omar little, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:38 (eleven years ago) link

personally I'd rather not have to deal with that since I'm pretty sure the results would be against the rules

El Tomboto, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:39 (eleven years ago) link

j0rdans answer is admittedly perhaps better thought out than mine

still i am for keeping ask chaki & adding the church

deeznuts, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:40 (eleven years ago) link

fuck chaki
fuck ask chaki
omar has a good point though

Mr. Que, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:40 (eleven years ago) link

et before anyone else votes, are we getting 'the church' either way? kind of an important factor here.

deeznuts, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:41 (eleven years ago) link

keep ask chaki and add the church. the church cru deserves a clean slate. kbp got a new board, why not the church?

omar little, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:41 (eleven years ago) link

i think ask chaki should be renamed META WAREHOUSE

Mr. Que, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:42 (eleven years ago) link

ok mega whorehouse sounds good enough to me

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:43 (eleven years ago) link

or METABARN

like SHOEBARN

only for META

i think Mr. Que should get Tom's dick out of his mouth.

wtf is the church even about? are we just going to keep adding lame-ass boards no one wants to read until we actually have a scroll bar on the ilx front page?

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:44 (eleven years ago) link

tom would you please remove your cock from my enormous succulent mouth?

omar little, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:46 (eleven years ago) link

maybe a compromise, like chaki's mega whorehouse

omar little, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:46 (eleven years ago) link

The red shift of post agglomeration history would be quite amusing to behold in 3D graph form, as the meta-enthusiasts flock as one to whichever board's become the latest hot property. Cape Of Good Hope will die away in a couple of days. If "The Church" is created, nobody will even remember King Boy Pato exists.

Just got offed, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:46 (eleven years ago) link

well in that case let's just add the church then

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:48 (eleven years ago) link

jeez j0rdan its called 'site new answers'

btw i already have to scroll the front page anyway & maybe ilx can implement some kind of activity based ranking system

i will keep cape of good hope alive

deeznuts, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:49 (eleven years ago) link

maybe ilx can implement some kind of activity based ranking system

this is actually a good idea, assuming you're talking about the ordering of boards on the front page

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:51 (eleven years ago) link

cape of good hope will long continue to flap flaccidly in the breeze

omar little, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:53 (eleven years ago) link

whatever im just saying i think that adding this new church board would be a slippery slope to us having 80 different boards on the front of ilx by this time next year

giving kbp a board made sense because a. he is annoying b. he used to be a board mod, but adding boards like the church would be stupid

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:54 (eleven years ago) link

c. giving him a board cut down on the amount of times the mods needed to deal with an asinine kbp mod req

idk the church just seems like ask a drunk to me

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:54 (eleven years ago) link

DG deserves a board y/n

why don't we start a thread "posters who deserve boards"

and then someone can start the inevitable parody "posters who deserve broads"

and then i go to bed a shaken man

we didn't dump IDME because masonic kate left and we shouldn't dump chaki because chaki "bowed out". in fact i suggest IDME as the new church.

omar little, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:56 (eleven years ago) link

IDME isn't named Ask Masonic Kate, though

Mr. Que, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:57 (eleven years ago) link

yeah j, ordering based on threads or posts or whatever

lol omar

most posters do not want boards, i am guessing. it is surely a very heavy cross to bear. enuff w/ this slippery slope bs. hail to the church.

deeznuts, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:57 (eleven years ago) link

To j0rdan: that's partly why we had this idea and are bringing it to you folks.
there is no longer a need for "Ask Chaki!" (or "Ask I am Robocop" for that matter) but ppl seem to be generally enthused about having a new board called The Church, this way we can give them the new board without establishing a precedent that could lead to, as you say, "80 different boards on the front of ilx."

which really we try to be fair and consistent but "precedent" hardly matters to be honest - at the heart of it there is no accountability besides what we demand of ourselves out of conscience (and u kno this)

El Tomboto, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 00:59 (eleven years ago) link

nah i mean i don't care about how many boards there are all that much, i'm just wondering out loud and obtusely if all it takes to get a board is three people with a hair brained idea and a few others willing to play along

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 11 June 2008 01:01 (eleven years ago) link

if so then w/e also YAHH board

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 11 June 2008 01:01 (eleven years ago) link

The function of "The Church" would be as per The Reverend's request here:

please create new board "The Church"

why because it sound interesting. Ideally its function would be just as the reverend said:

The Church should be a place where any members of ILX suffering a crisis of faith or needing spiritual guidance can seek expert advice from ILX clergy.

On-topic, for ecumenical matters only, but not necc. serious w/this.

Also, ideally it would just be for this and not a load of meta-ish gibbering as per some of the other small boards.

At this point we're not too keen on further proliferation of sub-boards.

El Tomboto, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 01:02 (eleven years ago) link

if ask chaki goes i want idme to be "ask omar little" and then when i leave pass along the board title to someone else

omar little, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 01:03 (eleven years ago) link

like it could then become "ask sanskrit"

omar little, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 01:03 (eleven years ago) link

or whoever

omar little, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 01:04 (eleven years ago) link

ok i mean if u guyz really think that real ilx posters and not heave ho's trolls and grady's sock puppets are going to be clamoring to the reverend and abbot looking for actual religious advice and "guidance" so often that it can't be covered in a rolling thread then by all means

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 11 June 2008 01:04 (eleven years ago) link

and if it's not a srs board don't we already have 1p3/cape of good hope/ire etc

lets not try to whitewash our history -- chaki contributed so much to these boards and went out like icarus, flying too close to the sun -- i for one will never forget him and i wholeheartedly oppose renaming the board that has given ilx so many lols

The Reverend, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 08:36 (eleven years ago) link

i mean i outlined a bunch of points, if youre being serious why don't you respond to them? for your convenience i will reiterate them here:

a) if this is a serious religious board, do you really think that there are going to be enough serious religious questions and moral quandaries to sustain the board over a long period of time?
b) if you guys are being serious, could this not be covered in a rolling thread?
c) if this is not a serious religious board, how will it differ in humor from 77/noize/1p3/ire/cape of good hope?

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 11 June 2008 08:37 (eleven years ago) link

im not waging war against the church of ilx or anything im just fishing around for what merits the creation of a sub board and what doesnt, cuz to me it seems like, as i said earlier, three (good) posters with one hair brained idea "supported" by a bunch of people who are being good sports.

im just assuming/predicting that it's going to turn into an ask a drunk type board within a few months and idk it's just a lot of clutter

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 11 June 2008 08:41 (eleven years ago) link

am i being a fun hater y/n?

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 11 June 2008 08:42 (eleven years ago) link

It's a religious board encompassing both the serious and the unserious. I hope that answers your questions.

xp: y

The Reverend, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 08:46 (eleven years ago) link

I'm sure a lot of the current active sub-boards started as three (or less!) good posters with a hare-brained idea.

The Reverend, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 08:48 (eleven years ago) link

It should all be religious, in the loosest term of the word, ie instead of 'Pizza - classic or dud/search and destroy' it should be 'DOES GOD JUDGE ME WHEN I PUT PINEAPPLE ON PIZZA????'

Matt DC, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 09:12 (eleven years ago) link

I don't care about Ask Chaki, I just like the Church idea.

Really I don't think we need any more boards but this one is actually funny.

More over-analytical, I think.

Pashmina, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 09:31 (eleven years ago) link

think jordan has a point though, over analytical or not.

how bout a board called Excelsior where people post stuff that made them laugh from other boards?

how bout a board called WDYLL where people post photos of themselves?

nothing against the idea, but is it really a 'board' by itself?

darraghmac, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 09:45 (eleven years ago) link

- renaming an unrelated, existing one

to

- replacing an unrelated, existing one and locking all existing threads.

three easy steps.

who's first to suggest deletion of all existing threads?
