A&H new rule proposal - Subtitle must be the website the article came from

  • Order for the new server will be going in ASAP. Performance will be rocky until then (rip).

Do you ever read a potentially interesting thread title in A&H, only to click the link and find out its trash from the Mirror or Daily Dot? Well, what about some truth in advertising? I propose a new requirement for A&H threads, requiring people to list the trashy sites they scrape this shit from openly for all to see before clicking on the threads.

Much better solution and literally what I was thinking after reading OP's idea. I don't see the need for automation though.

It can be left to thread creators and mods to enforce it manually, with results better than what reddit has. An Article (The Daily Dot) is much better than An Article [dailydot.com] in my view. Doesn't need to be a hard rule or anything, if it's a guideline people will pick up on it pretty fast (especially considering a lot of people who create A&H threads are repeat posters on that subforum).

But hey, either way works... I guess I'm just a fan of lo-fi tech.

I don't think getting rid of funny subtitles is worth this.
I'm going to go with this line of thinking, as well. I like my news with a laugh and the funny subtitles are often quite creative. The link to the source seems to provide enough info for me. I inhabit A&H more than anywhere on the Farms and its format and content guidelines seem to be followed by all and are pretty good as they currently stand. Never been to Reddit, so I have to pass on any comparisons to their style.

Yeah use reddit, or Twitter, or Teen Vogue! like a regular person you idiots!
If I wanted to use those as my sources, I might as well get it from A&H with as many Teen Vogue articles as I've seen.

But yeah, all that showing the source of the news article in the title is going to do is take up more space.

This forum has a surprising amount of circlejerkery. Wasn't really expecting that when I first joined. But look at the mods they have it makes sense.
I mean, A&H has always been a /pol/ carbon copy, it's just gotten worse since recently.

Might be needed if we get these literal /pol/tards posting sources that are obviously fake but the exceptional individuals they are can't tell that.

Ah, yes, maybe we should get the antifa supporting Weeb Moderators to choose which news sources are accurate.

Y'all are just going to post the same old blah blah blah it's from insert site here bullshit wether the source is cited in the title or not.

Teen Vogue could have hired Woodward and Bernstein to break Watergate and the usual suspects on this site would say the same things they do about moon dildos.

Eh, maybe, but what would it hurt to have the source listed?
