New Unregulated forum

The good news:
We now have a new forum called "Unregulated" (name may change). Basically you can say anything in there without getting removed or penalized. Discuss anything you want in there.

The bad news:
-You do not get any money from posting/responding
-New topics do not show up on the front page

Hopefully it was a good idea to add this forum.

i wanted to suggest that to you long time ago, but i thought of the bandwidth problem so i didn't say anything


outie - 1-26-2005 at 11:14 PM

I'd assume that stuff in this forum is mostly text-based. Bandwidth usage shouldn't be a problem.


GeneralX - 1-26-2005 at 11:20 PM

i was talking about random attachments, such as HQ jpegs

would we be able to request other things besides mp3s or non asian stuff in this forum?


i guess the news articles stuff would be in this forum now.


GeneralX - 1-26-2005 at 11:33 PM

well, when outie said it's unregulated, that means it's absolutely free and mods won't touch it

so, the quality is not very guaranteed

Like GeneralX said, no one is going to care about what's in this forum. Feel free to do whatever you want.

name suggestions (some may suck but I'm just naming anything that pops to my mind right now):
"the corner" or "the alley" (coz the alley is dark and scary and usually strange things happen in there "theoretically" speaking... LOL

"chaotic zone"
"wasteland"
"jungle"
"lion's den"
"the cave"


well... I'll keep it as this... don't want my post to go too long

edit: "freestyle" sounds ok to me too


outie - 1-26-2005 at 11:55 PM

The Alley sounds good to me.

ah yes... those "big license stalls"
I did a search on "dai pai dong" and found this pretty interesting website (my guess is it's an article by some students in HKU coz that's the website it was on) pretty interesting history on it but that's for another day

"licensed roadside foodstalls" is how they call it on the discoverhongkong.com website

couldn't find the suitable english word for it... but I remember I saw it somewhere on those "sometimes irrelevant english subtitles" in hk films (what they say and what's in the subs a lot of times don't match and they're almost too small to read also)

well let's just be friendly to eachother as much as possible... but since "unregulated" is the theme of that forum I guess anything goes... just don't bring family into it!!!

I wouldn't do that. What's the point of making enemies?


momorokoko - 1-27-2005 at 12:36 PM

hmm.. i like the idea, the only problem i can think of is that the new section will potentially be filled with flame wars..


babyfootmaster - 1-28-2005 at 01:47 AM

maybe "the alley" should be regularly emptied to reduce a pileup of garbage, like every once in a while ancient and useless threads would get removed.

btw, thx for the new forum.

oh one more suggestion, maybe add a search option to search all but omit the new forum so people looking for something won't need to search through possible useless post/threads


outie - 1-28-2005 at 02:06 AM

That is a nice idea to clean up that forum. Perhaps the inactive ones.

We'll see. The alley is still new.

As for Search I'll look into that. But then, I don't think many people actually use the Search function ;)


Lu1gi - 2-11-2005 at 07:51 PM

So in general, the Alley is for spam posts and whatever we want to get posted in there for fun?
