my beef of the moment: testing forums.

why do some message boards have testing forums?

what the fuck do they think people will be testing there?

where do they get the idea that there will be a lot of testing going on?

if you want to see if your signature or avatar is working, you can do it by looking at a post youve already made.

if you want to test some code, you can do it by replying to any thread and clicking on preview instead of submit.

unless I'm missing something really obvious, testing forums are completely useless.

It depends on the board. For example with ezboard you can't see your post unless you make one because pic and sig changes are not retroactive. And because ezboard image resize Rulz! and such are totally stupid and basically involve hiding small cheats in the code it's hard to predict. I used to have a test forum on my ezboard on which I would try out my pics and sigs. Also when I was trying out wigged out html tricks for various attacks on other boards I would do them in my test forum.

For a board like this it's pretty useless though and that's why I don't have one.

okay, on a ezboard its justified.

but elsewhere its pure self indulgence.

w0rd! Some people like to make too many retarded forums for nothing. I like to make too many retarded forums for stupid reasons, but reasons still.
