I hope this is the right place to ask this question. Is there a thread for unintentionally hilarious tv moments? I know there's one in the commercials area of the forums, but is there also one for shows and movies that air on television? Thank you for any assistance.

Here's a thread called "Unintentionally Funny TV Moments" that was in the Superlatives subforum of TV Potluck.
Moone Boy has been unarchived.

Also, it says One Day At A Time first -- I think people will get it.

Could you un-archive the Stefan/Elena thread in The Vampire Diaries forum and merge it with the second one that was started today? I think it's silly to have two threads when we can just un-archive the original one. Thanks.

Here's the Stefan/Elena thread to reopen.

Can you please un-archive the Ali G thread? His show is coming back tonight, albeit on FXX and not HBO. Thanks.

All requested threads unarchived.
I have no idea what the answer is to the views question. I guess you could test it by viewing an unpopular thread when not logged in and seeing if the count goes up?

Just a thought, in re the archived threads. Long ago and far away, Glark had to close some big, successful threads (e.g. the first Meet Market for Supernatural), because they were just too damned big. Considering that Tech thinks we're crazy to re-open archived threads, maybe instead of doing that, we could open version 2 threads, with a link to the version 1 threads, instead of opening the archived ones. That way, there would be no work for the moderation staff, or tech.
I'm sure this thought is full of holes, but it just seemed to me like an easier work around than what we're now doing.

Sure. My only question when people want to re-open threads (or start new ones) is that sometimes threads get archived for a reason -- because no one had much to say about that topic in the first place. That's not always true -- sometimes it's a matter of a show being off the air for a while, or something that wasn't an issue for a while is now of interest again (like a character returning or something).
My goal is always to balance the idea of keeping the size of the forums database as small as possible with having enough threads for what people want to discuss. New thread or reviving old thread with a link doesn't really matter to me except that there's a gatekeeper (me) for reviving the old thread so that we can avoid opening up old threads just because someone has one thing to say on the subject and then it languishes.
That's my thought process but I'm open to hearing what other people think.

I took care of it, thanks. You can also report any post in the thread in a case like that.

Someone has opened another Hell's Kitchen thread in the competition shows forum even though there's a thread under the current shows http://forums.televisionwithoutpity.com/topic/3220502-hells-kitchen/#entry16388723

Handled. That's the sort of thing it's better to use the Report button to let us know about.

I hate to be a pain, but character actor James Rebhorn just passed away and I was wondering if we could get the Kate & Allie thread unlocked to talk about his work on the show.
Posted Mar 23, 2014 @ 7:54 PM
Got it, but as TWoP Nikita said, use the Report button on any post rather than report it here. It will be (and was) seen more quickly, and you won't be getting anyone in trouble, if that's the concern.
Thanks. And apologies because I forgot about using the Report link. I'll try to remember next time.
Posted Mar 23, 2014 @ 8:24 PM
I admire James Rebhorn's work, but he was in two episodes of that show, so no. He was much more recently on Homeland and White Collar, so either of those forums/threads would probably be more appropriate.

It's possible (or was -- my tech knowledge is about 10 years out of date) to crash a server by setting up a bot or script toquery the search engine or otherwise make server requests hundreds or thousands of times per minute. Flood control makes it so that people can't do that by limiting the number of queries one person can make in a certain time period.
