Default Result and result threads--Only for Miss Last Island please

Salamz!


Please let me share with you my personal experience about 'result and result threads'. It was in 2011, when first time I got interested in 'result and result threads'. In that year forum administration allowed to discuss result but only in one thread. I don't remember original title of the thread; it was later on re-titled as 'rumors factory'. Thread got thousands of views (definitely the result awaiting students were browsing it again and again). I don't know what their feelings were. For me, it was exciting and motivating to see anxiety of aspirants; it was fun to see senior members making fake claims. That thread made ronaq on forum. We (me, my roommates and friends) loved that thread and visited it innumerable times. I think the thread was deleted after the announcement of result (not sure).

Then there came Sep 2012. This time I was also in the category of result awaiting students. And this time my approach toward result and result threads was quite different. And yes, this time, approach of forum administration toward result was also different. Result threads were not allowed. Even then there were threads. Almost 6 or 7 new threads every day. Rumors still managed to make their way but there was no discussion over rumors. I was online almost all the time, checking if there was any new thread about result. Hence getting the latest 'rumor'. It was very exciting to know something about result. It was exciting to see a result thread. It was exciting to see anxiety of other aspirants. 'You are not alone' the idea was soothing. Here the most important point is, though I listened to rumors yet somewhere deep, in my hearts of heart, I knew that no one knew anything about result.

Well, now, 2013... I am again in the same category but this time with very different approach. Result is no more a subject of anxiety. In fact, looks like, result doesn't matter much. Approach of forum administration is the same as that was in 2012. However, number of new result threads depicts that the approach of forum members has somewhat changed. There are far less result threads this year as compare to their number in 2012.

In short, this time there is No 'ronaq'. The special ‘ronaq’ that used to be hallmark of result. Earlier, we used to use one simple rule to predict result, ‘the more the ‘ronaq’, the nearer the result.

2011-- forum pe aaty hi pehla khial aata tha..
'Bachoo ka result aany wala hay'

2013-- Forum pe aa k tou lagta hi nahi k result aany wala hay :P
Result seems to become a boring subject

I personally believe that a thread like 'rumors factory' should be there. In that thread, members should be allowed to make as many claims as they wish to. They should be at complete freedom to spread as many rumors as they want to. And yes, members should be allowed to ask innumerable times the same old, a million dollar question
'Result kab aa raha hay---any idea??'
Yes, in order to maintain the decorum of cssforum, the thread could be deleted after result.

After all forum pe aa k lagna tou chahiy k result aany wala hay

We are not convinced. It only makes our job more difficult. We have to keep check on every post. Many people suffered short ban only because of scuffles in those result thread. Members make a mixture of English and Roman Urdu post; net speak is all around. After effects of such threads is always disastrous. Members are almost oblivious of every rule. They continue to post in net speak. Their non-serious attitude remains active. We become restless and have to spend additional hours on forum to remove all the junk. For you it is "fun", but for us it is a "headache", a "pain in the neck".

It is really hard to convince the 'royal queen of literature'

Well, you are not just in saying
'It only makes our job more difficult.'
In fact it sounds more like..
'Though it facilitates members (in emotional terms) yet it makes our job more difficult.'

I do understand the issues like short ban, members getting personal, use of net speak, abusive language, hate speech etc.. These issues can be tackled by making some responsible, senior and of course result awaiting members as 'temporary moderators' with 'limited powers' (eligible to edit and delete posts only in one particular thread, fixed for result). I am sure they would be more than happy to welcome this responsibility.

But.... I fear, I don't have any suggestion to tackle the legacy of the result thread

No. It sounds like "There is no use of such threads and it only create problems".

Do members really follow the already prescribed rules? Do they? How can we expect an anxious and impatient candidates to follow those NEW temporary rules? We cannot make temporary moderators and there is no way to tackle it.

Ok. Agreed!

Well, miss Last Island,
This feedback was really made in good faith.. less for the sake of result awaiting students and more for the sake of prestige and charm of the forum (If you really understand what I mean.. I hope you do )
Thank you for giving due time to my feedback.

Best Regards!

Sister give it a shot this time. You yourself make a thread with the first post describing and highlighting all the rules and then let the ronaq be prevailed and if you see any dilly dally or infraction going on, you can delete the thread. But again i reiterate allow such a thread to be made.

We have done this already. No one can control them. No one bothers to read the first post and the rules.

We are living in the era of commercialization and the electronic as well as social media sometimes compromise their rules/ethics for the sake of popularity. Although this forum is probably the most disciplined and well organized forum among all such other forums, but there must be some excitement/fun just in the month of sep/oct when result of CSS written examination is due. It will attract some new members as well.
As for as Roman Urdu is concerned, one should be able to write/type English if he/she is waiting for the CSS result with high hopes.

Its just a suggestion.

It's not about Roman Urdu. I have mentioned all the problems we face for the sake of this "fun". Only WE know what we go through before and after announcement of result. and nothing can convince us to let them start result threads. This forum is above commercialization. To attract people, we do not need to do anything special.

Members must understand no one can tell them about the exact date. The only thing they can do to kill their time and anxiety is to dial FPSC numbers and inquire them as many times as they want.
