All news puns are terrible.
PUNS and JOKES are OFF TOPIC so STOP DOING THEM
he didnt ask for threads that you think are hard to contribute to
he said impossible
chop chop dont want you to get banned now do we? (we do)
I know I sound like I'm being the fun police NO JOKES ALLOWED but if the extent of your post is a shitty one liner you're asking for a ban
The thread would probably be second page by now if it hadn't caused such a scene. There's nothing to actually discuss. It's something for people to laugh at.
Well that didn't automerge how I expected it.
This really isn't going anywhere.
http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1179564 - This one actually has nothing except jokes.
Albeit, some of these don't even have pun potential, but it highlights my point that there are threads out there that are meant as mild entertainment versus serious intellectual discussion.
If those threads are to die, fine. I was just asking in the first place lol.
Like, if we can make puns as long as there is actual contribution attached to the post, that's fine with me, and I thank you guys. I was asking that question for clarification, not to push.
hey check it out those threads were shit in the first place, they didn't even make it halfway down page one
a thread about leechs tracking down endangered species doesn't have discussion potential? Just because it didn't get many posts doesn't mean it has no potential. Those first three don't even come close to "impossible to discuss without puns" seriously, and the 4th has plenty of room for discussion since it's about kids doing an awesome experiment.
None of those come close to "impossible to discuss without puns" this really is going nowhere. Enough already.
All it takes is for me to make a few posts in those threads and you lose completely
And either way, I asked that for clarity. How many times should I say that I'm not trying to push the issue. I was just asking. I'm only looking for threads now and posting about it because craptasket held a ban over my head.
Is it possible to link threads to an old thread so we can find the next 'version'?
Where is the new ME3 megathread?
are puns in the OP bannable?
Puns are bannable for the whole subforum, so yes.
yawmwen can you like please stop arguing about something that you're wrong about?
proving that some dumb thread about some cuban actors NEEDS puns isn't going to make SH a super happy fun place where you can make really lame jokes and receive many cool faces like: or the logo for electricity type pokémans:
to avoid going completely off-topic i have a question
does anyone know how much FP costs to run per month? since larry said he partially uses money from boostar to run the site i wondered what it could cost
, being so big that it can contain all these hilarious puns
Ok, it's killing me. How the hell do I rate Bad Spelling or Bad Reading?
Buy a time machine, then re-register on the forums.
What's wrong with puns/jokes that contribute to topic of the thread? It can potentially invoke a new insight on the topic and at the same time contributes to the thread. If the pun sucks then let the community dumb it down and shun him or something. If it gets out of hand then the moderators can ban them (because they are there to moderate). Everything can be deducted with some logic instead of saying "No means no I am bigger than you so shut up!!!" like a bigot. There's not much to argue against and I'm speaking with honesty, so if there is some plausible retort to my argument then by all means....
