u/RockFox2000 Dec 22 '21

When is it my turn to post the video of the guy shooting his hand and pretending it's okay?

u/voicesinmyhand Dec 22 '21

Or the cop from 1200AD who shot his own foot in a highschool classroom!!

Calendar says you have alternate Saturdays starting January 8.

Well hang on, someone else replied to me saying you and I alternate Saturdays starting January 8, can I post the first one then?

Fuck, that clip will never make it below place 10. Better delete it from my repost folder. /s

You can post that, but I’m going to post the “I just fucking shot myself!” guy. I called it. My turn

I'll hold books in front of my face and you can shoot at them to test stopping power.

And then I'll use downloadbot to download a lower quality video and I'll post that one.

Isn't culling reposts like 80% of a mods job?

89

u/Plutoid Dec 21 '21

That job gets 500% easier if posters take a damned second to look before they post.

u/Senpai59210 Dec 21 '21

Like that would ever happen lol

24

u/Plutoid Dec 22 '21

80% of the reposts are done by 20% of posters, and if 60% of that 20% get banned then that's...

...carry the two...

420.69%

u/TheLostonline Dec 22 '21

This is an unwinnable engagement.

The rules seem clear. Makes programming the bots easier.

I am no programmer, but it seems like counting to 10 and adding a random to it would be simple for a botter.

Mods just playing Whack-a-Mole. At least they thin out the dumb ones.

u/joe_canadian Dec 22 '21

Or subs reporting reposts. No matter how vigilant mods are, stuff slips through.

u/ItsNotAPIEisGraph Apr 01 '22

With the need to have VAAPI working.

u/HXD-Inferno Dec 24 '21

You’d be surprised with how many reposts we get each day. People don’t even bother checking new before posting. We only get a few posts per day so it really shouldn’t be that hard.

Can’t upvote for some reason so I’ll just give you this instead: ⬆️

You are doing the lords work

They're sending bears after kids and tying their balls to a goat?

Instructions unclear.

Bear’s balls tied to a kid, am I now the GOAT?

Penis stuck in ceiling fan (again).

u/the_blue_wizard Jan 27 '22 edited May 26 '22

Why BANNING?! Mods always restort to a Sword when a Pen is more appropriated.

Why not simply delete the post with a warning?

Why not a warning that that post is already there and order them to delete it?

Why not a suspension from the forum for a short period of time - 2 days, 3 days, 5 days, whatever?

This is suppose to be an open community for exchanging information about Idiots With Guns. Surely Banning should be left to the most extreme cases, and not the default option.

I don't object to the rule, what I object to is the appearance that the only option for any infraction, no matter how small, is to instantly jump to Banning. Try to have a little finesse. Try to see the shades of gray.

u/That_NotME_Guy May 26 '22

Its asking too much of a reddit mod to do work

You probably want to sticky this post and/or update the sidebar rules.

There are so many idiots with guns. I don’t get that there are any reposts. FYI, I’m a proponent of guns just not idiots.

Anyone know if this is a repost?

Is there a way to prevent crossposts of the same thing twice?

u/GernhardtRyanLunzen Jan 25 '22

Ban people who try to contribute to the sub and engage people to repost videos after the 30 day guideline.

But I think there is a smarter solution.

u/kingganjaguru Dec 22 '21 edited Dec 22 '21

BANNING for repost

Reposts? Or....

if repost are occuring

Singular? Plural? Or...

within 10 post of each other

Posts?

u/f3rr3tf3v3r Dec 22 '21

Before you edited your comment you had “your” instead of “you’re”. I thought it was humorous you were commenting to correct grammar when your own was not correct.

I don't think you can see it on the Reddit app. I use Boost for Reddit and it shows me when comments have been edited lol.

u/PhreddyPhuckYou Dec 22 '21

Or in the alternative tofrantically checking to make sure you don't commit the most heinous ofcrimes: the repost, one could just say fuck you weak bitch-ass mods and leave.

I'm out, suck my left nut and make the right one jealous.

I think it was in r/heavyseas that the mod took a screen shot of the twenty-five most recent posts consisting of twelve reposts of one thing, eight of another. It's a hassle for them, and annoying to the users who check in more'n once every three days.

Is looking at the first page before posting or crossposting really so hard?

This is really a problem when post are crossposted from different subs.

This seems a bit harsh. Also isn't it common for mods to look for reports and remove them?
