Funny foto pics thread is no longer funny

Looked at the last 100 posts or so in that thread and there's hardly any funny pics there. New GF of Monfils? Bare behind of Rafa? LaLo with boxing gloves on? There are threads for these pics but not the funny foto thread.

Mods seem to take a blind eye toward these pics lately. I know they are not offensive or whatever but there are places for those pics.

Re: Funny foto pics thread is no longer funny

I understand your point Lee, there are some pics in there that aren't exactly chuckle worthy and it's meant to be a thread solely for pics that are funny. But different folks find different things funny, and most pics will be left alone. Mods try not to step in and delete pics unless, as you mentioned, they're offensive.

There are many things to sort out on GM and I'll admit that unfunny pics aren't high on the order of priority, but if there are any completely irrelevant pics that you consider do not belong in the thread, forumers are encouraged to report them.

The thread has the longest history in MTF and I believe it deserves more attention from the mods, IMO.

And I am not complaining about borderline cases, some of those are obviously not funny at all. e.g. Monfils with his new gf, what is so funny about that? and should be in the players' gf/wives thread.

I agree. Ash86 posts tons of unfunny pictures of Rafa in there all the time.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Re: Funny foto pics thread is no longer funny

You make a good point but humor is not exactly universal.

What's funny or amusing to one person isn't funny at all to the next. How are you going to decide fairly who is entitled to post which pictures?
You may argue that you're not talking about borderline pictures but once you set rules for that thread, you're going to create problems.

That's not new, though. Remember posters like mirkaland or nolefan? They were given a lot of freedom in that thread too and a lot of people complained about them not being funny either without moderators intervening. It's difficult to draw the line and do it fairly.

Agreed.

Posting unfunny pictures in the funny fotos thread is a high criminal offense.

Re: Funny foto pics thread is no longer funny

I think it'd be okay if mods occasionally deleted some of the unfunny pics. Really, just deleting a post is no big deal (I'm often amused at the overreaction by posters who've had a post deleted -- toddler-worthy tantrums ). No infraction (which apparently is counted forever for permaban purposes), no harm -- just delete it. Especially for the repeat offenders. Maybe people will get the hint.
