This is hilarious. The argument went, "remove the page 3 lock and useless threads will get deleted anyway as people get bored, while the funnier stuff will generally survive, plus it gives a larger window to uplift worthwhile content".Mr Bean wrote:Once again, almost a month now. The Senate gave up it's option to take action when it failed to bring anything to a vote and the issue in the eyes of the admin staff got worse. It would be different if there were a few plans that had been put to a vote and defeated. Or better still approved. Instead we have three pages spread out over a three week plus posting period and even then nothing has been voted on, or even seconded to be voted on.
The Senate can have a say when it says something.
Then, magically, the page 3 lock went away partway through the discussion. The point became moot. None of the detractors argued against it, and so the discussion ended.
How, in your mind, does this mean the Senate refused to act? Seriously, if you're going to argue this using logic, it would help to apply some. What kills me is that this is about something utterly ridiculous, which just further puts the Senate into obscurity. Thanks Bean, for helping to prove the point that the Senate is functionally useless in the administration of this board.
Why even have the illusion of transparency that the Senate and HoC give us if the mods and admins don't want to bother with it?
