One where people would get to post random funny things, and you could have fun after a long day at work or school... I would like it to diversify so questions that are funny can remain on the site in an alternative category. Good idea?
*I am well aware that the Other section is a place to post but a category specifically for fun*
On one forum that I used the post, we had something called "the pit" where basically you could a) make antagonistic comments and b) write threads containing negative opinions (antagonistic) about another user. The pit's purpose was to complain and rant about things.
One benefit I thought was that it encouraged people to be a bit more careful about what they said in general, or else they risked being "pitted" is what they called it.
I don't think GAG would do something like that though, and I don't think it would be a good idea there. That forum had mostly older, more mature people. Here, however, there'd by havoc and usernames showing up everywhere (because of all the new member posts).
We already got facebook for that. friends posting and sharing funny stuff. there's also 9gag, a humour website.
I think that would be a terrible idea. It totally beats the point of this site. I think if that feature is to be implemented, could be become a stepping stone of setting up sections that aren't really associated with q&a site. Plus a lot of humour varies and usually the funny ones are not conventionally PC, it would be just taken down by the PC admins.
Terrible idea. I'm on a question and answer website to give advice, challenge my thoughts and ideas and contribute new ones.
I have to already scroll through the most pointless questions in order to find intelligent ones that make you think. Many of the questions i don't understand why they're being asked. .. no one gains anything from them
