Tag in the key post

Post by BIT0120-ধ্রুব on Wed Apr 13, 2011 2:58 am

It is being seen that normally there are a lots of irrelevant posts under every topic. So when a user go through the topic he may usually get annotated. So it can be prevented if a tag can be attached to a post which will represent that this is the key part or this post contains the key information.
This will allow anyone to get rid of disgusting posts under a topic.

Agreed. I'm not sure if this can be done, but the idea is a bulletproof one.

I am not exactly sure what is the tag part. But if you can show an illustration, (like drawing a picture? Neutral ), then it might be more understandable.

Anyway, off topic posts sometimes encourage discussion from which something fruitful can come out. But too much off topic discussion can kill a topic as well.

I have another idea.
click me to see this idea:

Off topic posts will be reported. The moderators will take a look. If off topic, the post will be hidden inside a spoiler.
Just like this one

is it good?

Actually, one of my friend knocked me at FB and told that he was facing problem in bangla font at Firefox 4. then i gave him the link of the topic of our forum where this problem's solution was discussed. then, he registered in the forum and go through the topic. After some while he knocked me and told that, "ওই হালা কি লিংক দিছস ?? এইহানে তো খালি রসের গ্যাজ"!!!!!
I thought about his problem. and got the idea that if their is a tag like "key", "main", "solution" then one can easily find his desired post.

any way your one is also seems to be good but, if their is a number of off topic then people will get bored to report moreover, one must have to report regularly about off topic and who will do that........???

Well, the topic you are referring to, And রসের গ্যাজ, he needs to understand that problems are solved mathematically, not magically.
There were several possible solutions, simply because Firefox 4 itself had the complex Indic script fonts broken.

Anyway,
one must have to report regularly about off topic and who will do that........???

Any user can report. If moderators can volunteer to work for them, why won't users?

This may become potentially annoying. I mean, if all the off topic replies are spoiler-ed, those who'll read those will have to clock on them again and again.

I don't know man, maybe getting some HTML into action may work? Put the relevant topics inside a box or change the background color or something? I'm not sure about the technical feasibility, but it'll do the trick, i guess.

I guess then it can not be done. Never seen anything like it, nor know how to do it, specially under forumsmotion where very little editing is allowed.

Forums were built to promote discussion amongst members, and off topic comes automatically in any hearty discussion. So, I guess Forums don't inherently allow to point out on topic and off topic replies. The user can add a
-OFF TOPIC-
simply where off topic replies can not be avoided.

Anyway, I will keep looking into this matter.

here is another suggestion. Off topic messages will be blurred like this. anyone who wants to view, can drag on this:

Blurred message

Although it is not much different from spoiler actually >.<

Anyway, wiki says:

Even on very specialized forums and lists off topic posting is not necessarily frowned upon,[1] but a common netiquette convention is to mark a new off-topic posting or email by beginning it with "OT"[2] - for example in a forum discussing the Linux operating system someone might post: "OT: Wow, did you feel that earthquake?".
