Joanne: Bumping is generally used after a while when someone posts a question to which he really wants an answer and noone replies. Or, when people are trying to sell stuff (Marketplace forum)

I think the forum has been better lately, not too many insensible posts.
It is important that the moderators continue to do a great job, at the badders forum they have had massive problems with hundreds of abusive posts and fake members! Its better to keep things under control from the start, if people post riubbish and it is deleted then they will lose interest, if however they post rubbish and it turns into an arguement they see that they can annoy people and get a perverse pleasure in it and continue!
But perhaps we should have a frequently asked stupid questions FASQ:
Q Every time I hit the shuttle it goes out the side of the court, will the new Yonex 700000 at $300 with laser guided sights turn me into Peter Gade?
A No, if you play with that and Gade plays with a frying pan you'll still lose
Q I like to serve overarm off the feathers whilst running is this a fault?
A Have you ever seen a game?
Q I can't clear the length of the court. I can bench press 200kg though, will doing wrist strength work fix my problem?
A 10 year old girls can clear the length of the court, try practising or getting coaching!
But joking aside this remains the best forum by far with an excellant positive atmosphere and something for everyone from beginner to fan to elite player.

aren't we all fans?
anyways...that idea about a sticky where we can recommend people on succesful transactions is quite a good idea. it doesn't have to be as complicated as the ebay one, it just needs to show that the person is trustworthy

All right, I have read enough of this, along with tons of annoying and careless threads in past few months. I think I will be able to give you guys some examples of threads (other than bumps) which are very annoying and non-sense.
---------------Examples starts below this line-----------------
#1, "What racquets/strings do you guys think is the best for me? Do you think it will fit me well? "
Reason: What people think is irrelavent to you. It will make zero sense if you have never tried the racquet/strings before.
#2, "Have you guys tried X, , what do you think about it?"
(X=something we have discussed a lot already for years)
Reason: Obviously, the poster did Not search prior the posting, and we have lots of threads like this.

i think even those posters get annoyed everytime they get a reply to do or use the search function first coz i bet they already did but did not have any luck on the results. i hope something could be done to improve the search function.

How about introducing a point system which link to each member? Like all the board admin have the power to "give" a point for a GOOD post, and deduct a point for those BS post.
I think it will eliminate a lot of junk posts, cuz it will simply look bad if you have negative points.
It will also help the marketplace cuz now we will know the seller/buyer with high points is likely a "good" person, since he/she has contributed to the board with GOOD posts, vice versa. Whereas right now people judged by the number of posts, which means jack.

In time, through experience, we all will learn. I've had some really BS posts myself, still do sometimes... BUT, the more mistakes you make, the more you learn from them.

Getting Pwned on BF
so recently and lately I been witnessing a lot of people getting pwned on bf for posting inappropiate questions or for something else..any thoughts on it?

well of course some people might get angry and start talking **** since the person might be going off topic or never reads the sticky. On the reply thread, there are rules about being civil, repeated questions, off topic, and advertising. however, there are always a**ho*es out there.

It's a vicious cycle. You cannot have a perfect forum because there are constantly new ones coming to BC (a good thing!) and they will not know the guidelines, whether inadvertently or advertently.
Instead of the BC Members complaining/posting publicly, I think two things can be done:
1) Do not reply to their posts and let the Mods take care of it
2) Report them to the Moderators and have the Mods send them an e-mail explaining their post. The Mods can have a form e-mail so they can just cut and paste the appropriate mail. I know many other Forums generate an automatic e-mail if the post is Off-Topic, inappropriate or they pose a question that's covered in the sticky. This helps minimize the noise.
The Mods are here for a reason, let them do their jobs. The Mods, though Badminton Gods , cannot see every discrepancy, all the time. We can help them along if we see something not quite right.

i have noticed that the quality of posts in the forums has deteriorated lately.
while there are still the good quality postings that BC is known for, i am seeing a higher percentage of plainly off-topic and chit-chat/joking around posts that adds noise to the otherwise high-quality discussions.
if i were a reader of the forum, i wouldn't want to weed through these insensible postings in order to get to the good discussions. i hope members be aware of that in the future.
