It would be nice to have a "misc" newsgroup without binding to certain
topics.

At the moment all miscellanious stuff goes to community but many think
that "community" is only thought for directly AW related things.

To avoid this constant trouble (not AW-related or not on topic of the
group) it would be nice to have a group where not AW related things can
be discussed by AW community members. No need to hold the history as
long as it is held in other groups, maybe only 3 months back. But this
would be a place were we could post entries that don't go to any other
group without beeing flamed. Common to all these posts would be the
citizenship in AW.

It should not be a replacement for the AW chat but I've read some
interesting ideas by people I never met in AW and I met some people in
AW after I've read entries posted by them. This sure helps to know
eachother - so finally it would be AW related, especially as this server
is not open to the usenet.

that's why on mine ( news://awjbell.com ) i tend to try and remember to add
a group that's *.*.general or whatnot depending on the thread, mainly for
messages that don't seem to fit any of the other groups in that tree...

Perhaps you should try to think where isn't such a newsgroup, Ananas. Now get over it and go post stupidly on OTHER news servers.

It could be used as a test NG too as it would not bother anyone, no
restrictions to a certain theme.
Test is kind of "misc" stuff.

I'm curious, so I tried to have a peek but could not connect.

Another option would be news://news.city4all.com - some revitalize it at
the moment, or at least try to (some of the groups there were dead for
about a year).

But if the people spread across too many news servers the effect would
get lost, learning about people you did not meet (yet?).

I already noticed that you seem to think before you post since a while,
but still not everything is stupid that you do not understand.

What problem do you have with my wish? Could you please argue instead of
just stating? I want to take problems out of the current newsgroups,
that cannot be done on any usenet newsgroup as that would not affect
this news server. Please read my reasons for that wish, maybe you will
see that it's not as stupid as you thought after reading just the topic
or maybe the first line.

There are many who have a different understanding about the news groups.
We are not all eep clones, actually (nearly?) no one of us is. If you
cannot accept individuality stand in front of a mirror and tell yourself
how good you are, you big No. 1 - but if you take part in anything
community-related (VR or RL) you need to learn that most people are
different. Once you understood that maybe you will even like it.

p.s.: If you start to argue try to 'stick to commonly known words and
phrases' - english isn't my first language.

I agree with this, but feel just having "community" open to tourists (but not off-topic posts!) would suffice.

That's because "community" IS only for AW-related things, not little kids' news servers to make themselves feel more important and boost their self-esteem, not little kids' lame "communities" (wanna-be) in AlphaWorld where they, again, are trying to make themselves feel more important and boost their self-esteem. See a pattern? Guess who's mostly posting off-topic: little kids trying to make themselves feel important and boost their self-esteem. This is otherwise known as immaturity. Kids need to grow up elsewhere and not clutter up AW's newsgroups with their evolution.


So go form ICQ channels (or whatever they call it), Yahoo/whatever message boards, and web-based bulletin boards like Xavarella, Ima Genius, etc have. Don't clutter up AW's newsgroups with all that fluff shit. I didn't stand for it when I first came here in 1997 and I sure as hell ain't going to stand for it now.

I do not disagree but my conclusion is a different one, with one single
open group you could :
- give the off-topic posters a place where to post (and you will have
more arguments to keep people on topic in all other groups).
- have a place to test
- have a place for posts that you cannot really sort into one of the
other groups

Sure some of the people who post here need to improve (not sure if those
are all children), but it is fact that some children grow up in and with
AW. It is correct that they SHOULD grow up elsewhere but you can not
force their parents to deal with them. I don't feel responsible for
education but I try to be friendly and tolerant. It helps more to give
hints and advices than to exclude, people who are mad will not stay and
kids grow up. Those that are freaked out now will miss later, will not
share their ideas here but go elsewhere.
Ignoring the stupid posts and and answering the ones that make sense is
my strategy - as long as there isn't mass-stupidity (word mistyped but I
don't know where a, f and m go).

btw., I don't see the community (or communities) as organisation(s) when
I speak about community, I see it more as the 'collection' (sorry, I
find no better word at the moment) of people I meet, friends, visitors,
tourists and so on.

Everyone is free not to access the misc group - except curiosity would
force it ;)
And if the entries would be removed after 3 months there would not be
endless download even if someone loaded everything that's available
(once it would be filled).

But it isn't my job to decide wether the group will be installed or not,
it was just an idea, that's why it is in the wishlist. I don't use other
ways of bidirectional communications on the web than mail, news and AW.
That's why I would like to have the misc. stuff here so I can read it -
and maybe post when I feel like posting off-topic stuff.

Having a misc group will solve greatly the off topic posts problem - simply continuing a thread there (learn your browser's "Follow-up" option!). I was listening to that idea and added an "OffTopic" tree to my ng. Unfortunately Follow-up doesnt work between different news servers.

If people learned how to change subject lines (and leave the old one in for reference!) then the off-topic posts could be more easily averted. However, why the need to post off-topic in the first place? Look who's mostly doing it: kids who don't think before posting: Agent Fox Mulder, j b e l l, xero, etc, etc. If they would simply THINK before they post and realize their off-topic post does NOT contribute to AW's development in any positive way (except to positively annoy most newsgroup readers who would rather read about DIRECTLY RELATED AW issues and not ramblings about the latest twit kid's newsgroup and other nonsensical crap).

My point is, a misc group is unnecessary if a little self-policing goes on.

I strongly disagree. Ppl need forum where they can discuss what is in their mind. Most of the posters here rarely uses other newsgroups (no pun intended!) I bet most of them still thinks NG is another way of chat (but a slower one) which is of course bad but .... What would it cost to set-up an ng were everyone can talk about anything? For AWCI - as a publicly traded company (don't start to debate this issue please) has to keep the traffic in a controlled manner (one of the reason those private groups are not open for everyone). We can't think they will provide us a group where everyone can state her/his opinion regardless of the ng owner. Would you like to have your own ng where you read nothing else but bashing you? I doubt. I agree with you on the "Keep the posts on topic" agenda but there is no other opportunity to post something absolutely off topic. people need it! (maybe you are an exception :) That is the reason I'm an advocate to have such a group either within AWCI (which I doubt will happen) or on an independent NG where the rest of the topics are STILL aw related.

Don't forget - all of us were a beginner once. Some of us learned faster some didn't :)

Yes, but I've never been as new as you and most others who post in AW's newsgroups... I've been against "fluff" since the beginning (summer 1997).
