    Default I Have a Proposition

    Aventus threads are clogging up the forum. Let's do one of two things: 1) create a website that pays homage to this pestilential twerp or 2.) STICK TO ONE AVENTUS THREAD. Seriously, I'm going to press charges.

    Yes, it's annoying. It usually happens when noobs had their first experience with a Creed fragrance and think it's the shitz.

    I think you meant shiz. Unless people start spontaneously pooping upon smelling Aventus.

    I've read just a tiny portion of the immense ocean of Aventus' threads, and I am already bored to death.

    For me Aventus threads are something I can rely on in a crazy world. The batch numbers, the label controversies, the babbling in tongues, the chanting.......it's all strangely comforting.

    The idea has been tossed around before. Nothing ever came of it.

    Seems like the majority of Aventus / Creed threads that have been started lately have been by people bashing. The haters seem to be more obsessed with it than the fans.

    So...when you say that Aventus threads are clogging up the forums are you saying you can't just skim quickly over them and open only the threads you want to read? Too much trouble? If so your Basenotes is different than my Basenotes. You see...I can do just that in a matter of seconds. Yeah. I can do that very quickly.

    It's the damn users.

    Welcome to the Internet.

    They're all thinking, surely no one else has asked THIS question about this magical potion.

    I think a sticky is a good idea. A lot of noobs don't seem to know how to use the search function, sadly, which accounts for repetitive threads. Not to say that folks won't read them, but what if bored folks won't bother to reply on such threads and the poster decides to go bonkers and start insulting others with 'blunt' questions like one particularly weird and unpleasant incident yesterday? Hmmm...

    If you did this for one popular fragrance, you have to do it for them all, thus this would not be logical.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Aventus is a good fragrance but its so over rated and the batch variation drama on basenotes has reached plague like proportions .

    Yeah, I wonder why people can't just search. Like the three different "what's your favorite By Kilian" threads in the last few days.

    I'm sure we all appreciate the irony of bemoaning the fact that 'noobs' don't use the search function, when the plethora of threads like this clutter the search function, making the search significantly less efficient.

    The latest fad in fragrance discussion is not Aventus, but Eau de Snark.
    Let me be clear, I'm not referring to this thread, but I'd wager there is more opportunity for constructive discourse in yet another Aventus thread than in any of the recent threads that seek to belittle fellow members using snide and wannabe-surreptitious approaches.

    I'd sooner rather answer another identical question about Aventus than read another gibberish thread commenced out of some misguided sense of superiority. Remember, it was presumably the older members of these fora that started the hype surrounding Aventus

    I also doubt there are too many of us that haven't started, or at least participated in a thread asking a question that has already been asked.

    I'm in total agreement. Any poster of any kind, noob or otherwise should be able to start any thread on any appropriate subject at any time no matter how many times it's been done before. Everyone has their own little twist or take on a theme. Let them do their thing and express themselves any way they want to. You're then free to comment or pass on it. There are scores of new threads here all the time. They have titles, some informative some not so. Nobody is forced to read any or all of these threads. And I'm sure you don't either. You just pass on the ones that don't interest you right? It's not difficult. If you dig the search function use it. Nothings clogged up on here though I sometimes think laxatives might help some of the posters.

    That's a really good point - just think how welcoming it is to a new member asking a question, to have a bunch of people from the BN community answer their question in a friendly manner.

    It'll help get a lot more active members (and more points of view) than just saying 'use the search function - we've been over this before' and the first three threads the person finds are ones slagging off 'noobs' for not searching for Aventus.

    Without wanting to sound too 'We Are The World', I think it's good to show people that they're unique and worthy of attention, regardless of how done to death their question is. If you're sick of answering an Aventus/LIDGE/DHI question, then don't, but there's no need to alienate a person potentially just beginning their fragrance experience.

    Thanks. Feeling better now.
    1 spray of Aventus to each eye cleared things right up.


    Come to think of it, there was a time when all the pure malt threads were quarantined away in their own section.

    Exactly, if there's a group of posters however large or small who want to talk about the joys of LIDGE 24 hours a day it's no skin off my nose. More power to them.
