Sugestion for NOOBZ!
« on: September 17, 2004, 07:26:31 PM »
I don't know if anybody has been toying around with this idea, but I think it would be good to force people to pass a mandatory quiz before posting in the "Berserk" and "Translation" forums. 

This quiz would be multiple choice and would ask questions that could easily be answered by reading the Encyclopedia or FAQ...Questions like, "When does the next season of Berserk come out?" or "Where can I buy the manga?  Is it in English?"

It seems like this would be more efficient than some hapless novice coming in to the Current Chapters forum and getting flamed to hell after asking a simple question.  If flaming is an integral part of the process, maybe it could be done after failing said quiz.  Something like, "You can't post here stupid Nuub!!  Go back to the encyclopedia.  You go to hell, you go to hell and you die!" or something along those lines.

I can't begin to know how much trouble it would be to implement this feature, as I don't know jack shit about programming.  But if the quiz were multiple choice and set up like a poll, it seems like it could be easily automated.

Edit: Just to clarify, they could still access and read everything, just not post.

Excuse me, C, but I would like to say something about your last question. I don't remember where I have found this information, but it seems Miura decided his name would now be Kantaro.
Some one, tell me whether it is a sick rumor!
Thank you & have a nice weekend.

It seems Hakusensha asked for his name to be spelled "Kantaro" on the new Berserk French edition, but they changed their minds, and it's written Kentarou both on volume 27 and episode 224, so I don't think anything has changed.

I don't think there will. The BBS isn't really designed for that kind of stuff, and it's a bit old now to start restraining access to some parts. I keep that in mind anyway.

I know that I don't speak much in any of the boards, but how about adding a newbie section. It doesn't need to be titled "newbie" but maybe something like New Comers in the  Berserk World, wich points to information to answer most newbie questions as to:

1. What happens after the eclipse?
2. Is there more berserk?
3. Where can I get more berserk?


etc, and so on. That sounds like it can take a little work, but that will prevent most flaming and annoying repetative questions. It can also be as easy as it also pointing to the search function, which is constantly overlooked. Its only a suggestion...

Yes, if you spell Guts with an a, it will auto check it and spell it Guts. Strange how it doesn't do that with any other names.

Yes, that sounds like a good idea. It willl be good to put the experts of berserk in one spot, and the noobs in an other, that way we don't have much problems.

Several names are corrected, it's not just Guts.

I agree with Smith, even tho, we are not "experts" we should put the noobs away from the members that been here for a long time. That way we would have people in big letters saying "FOR THE LAST TIME!!! THE MANGA IS THE STORY IS THE MANGA!!! THE ANIME IS DEAD!!! I kind of fell sorry for the people that join the board and get yelled. But other people  http://www.skullknight.net/yabbse/index.php?topic=4073.0 know that these topics have already have been made and make them again. I still think a noob topic will be good.

As good as an idea as this may seem, do you really think new people are going to really check out the "NEW MEMBERS FAQ" or what ever you call it? In reality, no, I dont think so. Just recently I saw that new comer come in and make that thread for "A Billionth time(scans)". Sadly I dont think it will do all that good.

There's one simple rule here, and it's universal: you shalt not be stupid. It really shouldn't be too hard to follow.

I agree with Smith, even tho, we are not "experts" we should put the noobs away from the members that been here for a long time.

Should I put you away then?

I kind of fell sorry for the people that join the board and get yelled.

The people that get "yelled at" commit basic errors (and/or are rude), the kind of things you're supposed to know while being on the Internet. It's not specific to this board.

do you really think new people are going to really check out the "NEW MEMBERS FAQ" or what ever you call it?

A FAQ section will be implemented in the Encyclopedia. Like the one from the old site. There's no need for it to be a section of the board, and it won't be addressed to new members specifically.

In Just recently I saw that new comer come in and make that thread for "A Billionth time(scans)".

Yes, I added the "(scans)" actually, when I moved it from the Manga Mausoleum section to the Shootin' the Breeze section.

Just because someone's been around a while (i.e. no longer a "noob" by definition) doesn't make them any more valuable.  I think this is a major misunderstanding on the forums.
