Your NASIOC Administrator Synergy, what the heck is it!

NASIOC Synergy Forum

We've decided to try a new forum modification called Synergy. The idea is to submit good threads to the system so that people on other communities like ours can read them. Once a thread is mirrored to other forums, then people across the internet vote on which they feel are best. The best threads get to the front page which causes them to be read by even more people. If you author a lot of good threads, you might become well known across forums as a "Top Author".

If you read a thread you like on Synergy, simply click on the vote link next to it. Vote totals are tallied across all forums and updated about once a minute. Keep in mind that threads aren't always ordered by votes because the Synergy algorithm takes a lot of factors into account when ranking a thread. But votes are very important, so vote!



There are a variety of thread categories that cover pretty much everything you might be interested in.



If there are categories you're NOT interested in, simply select the options link as shown below.



After selecting the options link, you'll be taken to the screen shown below. Unchecking boxes next to categories you're not interested in will stop them from showing. If you aren't interested in threads from other forums, you can hide them with a single click.



If you author a thread that gets to the front page of Synergy, then you get one point. The top authors of threads from around the internet are listed as seen below. Create great threads and become well known!



By default, Synergy shows you the most popular threads. At the top, you can change the sorting options so that you see the newest submitted threads to the system.



If you find a thread on our forum you think would be good to add to Synergy, simple click on the in the postbit, under the username near the report post icon, of the first post in the thread. That will take you to a submission screen where you write a short description. Once you submit that, it will go into a moderation queue for us to approve (or deny). Your help finding the best threads to submit is appreciated! Let's show the rest of the internet how good our community is.

Enjoy!

Can NASIOC threads become Synergy threads?

Yes, by submitting threads as per the instructions above.

That will submit them to a queue and I will make the decision whether to post them or not.

But submit stuff if it's worthy of internet infamy...

No. OT is slow because God ran out of kittens and you have a real problem that's going to leave you blind!

Look at my first post here... near the bottom left... look for this icon:

Click that icon on threads you want to submit to the queue. I will get a list of the threads that you guys want to submit. If I approve them... they will get submitted to the list of threads on Synergy. The submitted threads will then be viewable by everyone using Synergy on their forum.

The concept is simple... there are stories on all forums that we want to share everywhere... this allows us to do that.

Am I the only one who sees people abusing the hell out of that icon? Although someone should go back to the original MS paint thread and synergize that mofo. That is the stuff of legends.

Well right now I'm going the be the one sorting through the queue... so if I see specific people being retarded about it... they are gonna get slapped around.

But those MS Paint, StarWars Car (which actually got us on SlashDot), and fat kid photochop threads are the stuff you can submit and I will submit it right away. Send me the most historical and famous OT threads of all time.

Crap. There were at least ten threads in OT today that were funnier than anything on there, and it was a slow day in OT.

What if you post something that is somewhat embarrassing (for example: Automatic Seat Belt Tensioners FTL = Puke inside truck http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1190175
but the author doesn't really want it posted outside of OT. Would you check with the OP first?

Not a dime... it's just an enhancement to the community. I thought it would be cool to spread OT and all of NASIOC.

This is an interesting modification, Nick.

Could work well.

Bravo!

So let me get this straight... if the OP made the post in OT which is regularly visited by like 30K people a day I should ask them if they are afraid for it to get exposure on the internet?

No... if you post it here in a public to the world forum, it's fair game.

EDIT: Now where are those OT classics? Submit em you slackers!
