    It seems that there are a lot of people who start threads with the sole intention of riling people up, to get their thread locked. Why is this? Is there some hidden game? Should we be keeping score? Am I losing? Are you losing?

    Let's play a game. Perchance the moderation team could provide us with a scoreboard; a means of keeping track of who is winning this game. After all, it's not how you play the game that matters, it's who wins.

    Once we've agreed on a design of said scoreboard, I think it would be good to have a ranking system built in so we all know who stands where in the competition. Why compete when there is no chance of winning? Conversely, why bother with extra effort when everyone else has dropped out of the game?

    An index would need to be put in place, to ensure no one cheats at this game. Listed below are threads and their acceptance status as of today, February 9th, 2017, 04:50 UTC.

    1. Bandmate Affairs, Intimate.....OK
    2. Bandmate Affairs, Non-intimate.....OK
    3. Basses, String count.....OK

    20. Ugly Basses, Previously Modified.....OK
    21. Ugly Basses, Mothman .....OK
    22. Ugly Basses, Unmodified.....PROHIBITED
    The list above contains threads most commonly seen on these forums and will be updated as needed, barring thread lock. Threads with OK status may be posted and commented on ad nauseum. In addition (or in place of) scoreboard, forum moderators will prospectively keep score utilising administrative powers. Threads with PROHIBITED status will not be added to competitor thread lock scores and can result in account suspension. Don't be a cheater.

    Happy locking!

    If people would follow one rule, we wouldn't need so many rules. Just don't be a dick.
