as many have put it so eloquently, go make a demo about it.

Gargaj: pouet != scene. Always remember. Even if it hurts sometimes.

i like it how we have 1,5 pages of music, gfx, parties and other categorized threads, and 295 pages worth of "general"... this categorization thing really seems to serve a purpose! :p

Less talky, more random imagy.

Oh damn. I thought it said "Random Image Thread Reloaded". Well, i'm treating it as such, since the "v2.0" thread redirects to scene.org.

kb: that was never the question - the question is, how big is the intersection?

you decide
Change? On Pouet? I'm schocked !

Gargaj: Maybe I would make a demo about it, but unfortunately I have no time for that, and my skill's a little bit rusty (well, more than a little bit) due to too much enterprise java application programming (money, need money)

Gargaj: IMO, the intersection is big/small enough for a peaceful coexistence of the prod database and the random image thread.

Of course the increasing shithead-ness of posters in the RIT is also increasing the strain on the admins (which is you), but the thread per se isn't the problem. People aren't replacing creating productions by posting images; most people posting are more on the consumer side of things anyway, and the occasional random image coming from an active scener won't hurt his/her productivity too much. If there's any correlation between more posts in the RIT and less released productions, it's merely a symptom of people getting older and lazier, not the cause.

And I must say I liked my daily dose of randomness as well as having a place to post weird things I've found in the internet. Things went a bit downhill when Ringo started drowning that randomness in a flood of mediocre-looking women, yes, but still.

(Or just limit the max post count in threads to the number of prods in the database. That should make stuff interesting in a few years :)

PS: And yep, the people opening 100 useless threads because they think it's funny can pretty much fuck off.

PPS: Then again, also in response to Havoc above, maybe Pouet 2.0 should use a more (here it comes) 4chan-like system for the BBS. Not the images, but the way thinner separation between threads. Make them more lightweight, add a few AJAX sprinkles (expanding/collapsing without having to change the page), that should make things way more convenient.

How is sb still able to post in RIT? How is that possible? Haven't the thread been shut down?

"okay, the thread reached 0x8000 posts..."

Some facts:

0x8000 = 32768
Random image thread posts: 32773
32773 = 0x8005
0x8005 > 0x8000
maxvalue of signed shortint = 32767 (0x7FFF)

Administrators killed the RIT! :)

Thank you, I was getting addicted to this crap.

Gargaj: can you post a top10 list of the number of images posted per user?
shouldnt be that hard a query i hope.

okay.. I should start coding instead now

kb: agreed on most counts, and while the thread might not be the problem, it got so bloated and dragged on that it eventually crossed over into the exact same meme territory most of the intelligent internet is very much weary of.

Ok I'm bored.
Since last months i had to reduce my internet usage to just a few websites... (because no more time, sucking job and so ...)

Random image thread is one of the only one i still consult every day no matter what happened....

question : what will i do right now ?
