All I want to know is where is the "Impatient Thread Starter" thread?

talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

Why is it ok for lazy people to start as many duplicate threads as they want with the lame excuse of "I didn't see any other threads" but it's not ok for the mods to close them?

wtf? I can if I want to... i'm stating my opinion as are you...

this is not the forum to have this discussion. Discussions about the new album belong here not a post about threads being closed prematurely.

Well I guess this only applies if the poster doesn't agree with you.

Emoticons are there to be used, obviously.

We don't all spend countless hours in these forums analysing all threads before we dare to post anything - please be a bit more gentle at times, I know we're getting excited about the new album - nothing wrong with that.
We may not spend countless hours, but we can all read(hopefully). Even if you look at the last couple of days you would have found the submarine/gasoline thread. If the thread was weeks ago I'd probably see where you are coming from...

And why would you want to read a fake review? We've had so much misinformation and people coming in lying about "sources" that people are believing it and continue to spread that information.

As a moderator it's part of their job to make sure this place is organized and not spreading rumors. So I wouldn't call it impatience, I'd call it efficiency. Especially in this paticular sub-forum.

The mods here do a hell of a job, considering some of the things they have to deal with.

I think the mods have been very patient with this thread.

Other people have just as much of a right to post their opinion as do you.

And spin off threads = big no-no. Just sayin'.

I didn't make an order for him to not post here! I just said that if he/she think this thread is shit or is in the the wrong place and he/she is so bothered by this threads then don't post here, or don't complain so much.
I agree that out of place or fake thread should be closed, but the main thing said in here is that people here tends to be too patronizing.

So if a read something that doesn't interst me or if i think i shit i just stay out of it. If a choose to be a part of some dicussion i wouldn't call it a shit thread.

The fake review thread was closed because the new album forum isn't for fake reviews that will just mislead and upset people. That thread was reported several times this morning. It shouldn't take "countless hours in these forums" to quickly glance through a page or two of that forum's threads and see if an identical topic exists before just starting a new thread. I don't think that's too much to ask. As for patronizing responses to the duplicate topics, etc, those aren't really cool either. I may get frustrated seeing the 100th "new album tracklist!!!!" thread or whatever, but I'm not going to go into the thread making faces at the thread starter and calling them names. We have A LOT of new members right now, and old members coming around that haven't posted in awhile, and I hate to see them met with those kinds of responses. If a thread is an obvious duplicate, in the wrong place, whatever, reporting it so a mod can take care of it is the best way to deal with it.

People will complain and start reporting if the forum is a mess full of very similar threads, and they complain if threads get merged or closed too. Since we can't make everyone happy, we're trying to do our best to keep the forum organized without hurting too many feelings in the process. If there are any further questions about why threads are closed, they should be addressed to any mod/admin privately. Every member has private message access now, and our email addresses are in our sigs. t's against our rules here to make threads about why threads are closed.
