    Propose we close the Chick of the Day thread and its various derivatives. All for nudity, erotica, NSFW etc. having a home on QBN, but not in such a sexualised and prejudiced presentation. Surely we can do better?


    • I upvoted because i agree. Then down voted because i disagree.capn_ron
    • you're okay with NSFW chicks, nudity and erotica etc, but not presented sexually? I don't computemonospaced

    • ...26k post mark, amongst other fem. related threads and DotD a mere curiosity with circa 700 posts.PeterPancake
    • @Maaku Yea, I don't think we should be stopping people post CotD type content, just it should be posted in a more gender balanced thread. eg Nude of the DayPeterPancake
    • get rid of all the OTD threadsimbecile
    • You can close it down, but it will leak through cracks and holes in other threadsdrgs
    • Although I'm fine with chick if the day thread going away. It doesn't show up on cover page.pango
    • Maybe stop clicking the thread and feel bad about it?pango
    • I'm surprised this is on the chopping board before the NSFW thread.pango
    • @drgs Grand irony that the CotD thread started as a parody and mutated in about 2.5 cock strokes.PeterPancake
    • @pango Not a fan of the don't like, don't click argument. It's in the sidebar, yo.PeterPancake
    • Also I'm totally fine with the NSFW thread. As long as it doesn't end up on the cover page, DP the hell out it short of snuff.PeterPancake
    • it's only about 2 people who post in it isn't it?fadein11
    • Darn Peter, where were you back in 2000 when the shit was getting started??robotron3k

    • Mostly CotD thread is boring as fuck and old fashioned. Get me some 21C grot.PeterPancake
    • Thanks for your reply PP. I agree with you about the CotD thread being dull as fuck. However, QBN is pretty good at self censorship/editing those people and...Morning_star
    • no one can/should dictate what others want/ or should like. Just cause you dont think it is "progressive" (we read as PC) doesnt mean others have to stop.mugwart
    • ...opinions that are a step too far. I guess that this side thread illustrates the breadth of opinion about CotD.Morning_star
    • a community has many voices. I dont like the religion thread - doesnt mean we should ban that.mugwart
    • @ mugwart. 'Snap'Morning_star
    • Think this is pretty democratic so far :)PeterPancake
    • @mug, the religion thread is a debate thread. not a psalm of the day thread.PeterPancake
    • ^point being, the CotD thread has the power to turn people away from qbn. those people don't have a say because they don't join.PeterPancake
    • and to re-iterate, it's not about banning the content, it's a about putting it in a box that won't offend potential users.PeterPancake
    • (and current users, obv)PeterPancake
    • I'm pretty anti-PC but I'm with Peter here. However I'd obliterate it all, esp nsfw and similar. Too much junk slipping into cover page. Sorry, not sorry.SteveJobs
    • There’s nothing prejudice about chick of the day. The title is fine and so is content. There’s also dude of the day if you’re into that.monospaced
    • Because of the threads like chick of the day there are no chicks here. You guys shoot yourselves in the foot. Seriously, I think it limits the gender variety.Beeswax
    • I'd be good with it (+nsfw-focused threads) disappearing. I'm not offended and enjoy an occasional scroll through, but they def kinda lower the bar around here.horton
    • Okay okay ok now, let's not talk crazy now. Just make a Pancake of the Day thread and be done with this nonsense.fyoucher1
    • I would never have created a COTD thread. But the QBN community decided my work belongs there. Even PeterPancake posted a lot of photos there, btw.SimonFFM
    • I doubt that's the reason there aren't more participating women on here btw.
      Also, leave cotd alone, chicks dig it too. oddly offended. *eye roll
    • There. That settles it. Bunch of men speaking for women. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯pango
    • no from me.renderedred
    • The moderators met last night to discuss this ;)

    • @SimonFFM Your work absolutely has a place on a design forum.PeterPancake
    • There's no way to prove it turns people (men and women, btw) away from the forum b/c ofc. they arn't here for their voices to be heard...PeterPancake
    • It's not really surprising that some female members are ok with the thread @sea_sea. Would be interesting to hear what others think.PeterPancake

    • @PeterPancake Thank you!SimonFFM
    • I'll throw my thoughts in the hat since I am a chick here. Had I not joined 15 yrs ago, I wouldn't join now w/the NSFW or cotd threads even on p1 thread list.shellie
    • Perhaps more problematic threads it should just not be in the thread lists or front page but searchable via filter for those who know to look.shellie
    • stay woke.severian
    • You should also mention to women to stop wearing high heels into the office.severian
    • Bc @severian can't look at a woman's shoe choice without loosing his shit like a 11 year old when the lights are turned off in class for a movie. Cute.shellie
    • Not that it'll happen, but I agree with amalgamating all the masturbatory threads into something a bit less overtly sad blokish. 'Chick otd makes my toes curl.detritus
    • The Official NSFW thread's for all the stuff that's not masturbatory, so should be left out.detritus
    • Totally agree with having some mechanic to keep them off the front page, though can't think how that could happendetritus
    • Also think it would be amusing to mix in men to the generic porn thread, just to unnerve the basement-swelling masturbators on here mid-shuffle.detritus
    • QBNX is a pretty neutral title. Mark it NSFW. Allow users to choose whether to see NSFW in the sidebar - seems there's a call for that.PeterPancake
    • @shellie, men are primates. Women sexualize themselves daily. Dress, makeup and behavior. They be peacockin.severian
    • And maybe hide NSFW threads from potential users (i.e. when not logged in).PeterPancake
    • the problem is on both sides of the aisle.severian
    • another question is , why are these women taking their clothes off for money? Quite sad isn't it?severian

    Give us a bit of insight in to QBN data. Some trends and statistics. Kind of like PornHub has been releasing. What are the popular threads, times of day, regions, user popularity, etc. It would be fun to make an infographic.

    Is there some way we can make the comment beside the post easier to deal with when there are a lot of people commenting. I was just checking out the post by Busterboy on the blog thread and both fadein11 and Morning_star had a good little argument about the topic but had to do it in 150 characters.

    When you don't have that much room the comments tend to degrade to "FUCK YOU" and "FUCK YOU TOO" which helps no one. (these guys did not deteriorate to this)

    It seems that something like this needs to have it's own thread to really get ones point across without having to comment 5 or 6 times in a row. When the debate gets to this point I think we all like to see where it is going and maybe stick our opinion in.

    Can you turn a popular post into a temporary thread once it gets to a certain number of comments and then delete it when no one has commented for like 24h? Most likely there is a better solution then that but I think there is a design dilemma that could be creatively overcome to allow for posts that are popular to have a better interface. Love the site and it's design, just an observation.

    only one instance of video (maybe audio too?) can be played on a page. often i play one video/audio on a page and want to stop that one to view the next, now i have to scroll back up and stop the original then scroll down to play the next one... especially in the "listening to..." thread this happens to me.

    • meanwhile whites and blacks can equally receive food stamps, but they'll claim racism or "hate" speech as if to justify their causes.omg
    • So that people cannot talk about certain subjects or have an opinion that differs from another. Which is actually a social "injustice."omg
    • Humor doesn't also justify speech as double standards say only one group can make fun of the other, but not vice verse else it's a "phobia" or more hate speech.omg

    I dunno about ignore feature. I get the appeal, but it's like this...

    "Hey everyone that agrees with me, come in this thread and agree with me!"

    No diversity of opinion. No variation of taste. but yeah, there will be bullshit & trolling. I also think once certain ppl get ignored by some and not others, the ones that didn't might respond to comments others can't see, and then the whole thing becomes a mess of confusion and bullshit.

    Just my opinion.
