or Hall of Drama(rama).

So I was bored and reading through some HoF threads, when I thought it could be a cool idea if we added a new forum called the Hall of Drama, which just as the name conveys, is a final resting place for all the shitty (and fantastic) forum Drama that happens here.

This is mostly because I think it's fun looking through all the old drama and to have it all consolidated into one fourm would be nifty.

I'm sure there are plenty of reasons for this to be shot down, but like I said, I only just thought of this a few minutes ago so I'm not married to it or anything.

ready? VOTE!

I like the idea of making these drama threads easy to find. The problem is that if we were to create another forum, we'd have a shitload of forum history forums (unless RHOF was somehow merged with HOF). What if those threads were retagged with a "drama" tag so that they could be easily filtered?

We did have a drama tag at one point, and I really liked it, but one of the admins deleted it. The only problem with that is going through all the history of threads that weren't added to the (R)HOF finding them, and changing the tags. The FAQ will helps some, but not entirely.

I like Zippo's idea.


Although we should just make sure forum dramas are linked to in the Timeline. The primary sources always are interesting.

Quoted from Ampitheatre:

With enough agreement I could do it while I go through old threads for the FAQ. No big deal, just it needs some sort of definition for drama.

definition for drama.


Sitting here thinking about it, that's harder than it sounds. I'd suggest something as vague as "taking the internetz too seriously".

I don't think it can be defined, and I don't think we need to define it either. Everybody recognizes drama when they see it. If in doubt, ask three or four other forumers and see what they think about a particular drama-like event.

Events that create real strong emotions among those involved and contain some degree of hostility.

I'll take this into consideration, and I'll discuss it with Matt and Rich about whether a drama tag can be implemented. The problem arises, though, in the number of posts. Does a thread have to be entirely drama, or can a 'snap attack' from say - Snowy - on somebody else justify drama?

I think that this is a terrible idea.

But I agree these threads need to be saved, though. Just put them in the HoF. That's what it's there for.



I don't think the Hall of Fame should be just for comedy gold, but mere notoriety as well.

don't care
Realize that falling in love with someone is just the results of a series of generic events that can occur between you and basically anyone who meets your standards of attractiveness. It's just an emotional manifestation of a handfull of chemicals bouncing back and forth. It's not the holy grail of living, it's not your reason to exist and it's definitely not something reserved for "that one person". Accept that you are just an animal with a big brain that allows him to fret over what only amounts to a game of hormone pool. What you're feeling is not your soul dying a gurgling, ugly death, but withdrawal. All the happy chemicals that saturated your body when you were with her are kicking out cold turkey, and your body is screaming bloody murder, where are my fucking endorphins? It's just chocolate. Find a new bar.

As simple as it is to make a tag, nobody's done it yet.

alright, I'll go ahead and dramamize threads. Will be including:
- threads entirely or in a majority consist of drama
- threads with profound drama (drama which changed the perception of one or more person)
- "debates" that have devolved into idle drama

and by a case by case process:
- drama created through trolling or purposeful hijacking (eg. Vissario)
- drama in specific forum threads (not including SD, HoF, HoS)
- drama in RS
- threads that ended in bans/warnings of regular users
- threads that consist of little drama between two known adversaries (eg. Snowy vs. Kayte)
- large threads where drama is a minority (eg. Picture thread, Alcohol, FE)
