A while back, I created this thread:
It didn’t get much traction, but I think this is still an issue, and it has been raised multiple times in the thread about whether we should keep the Pit at all.
Nothing changed, and you can still link to a GD thread in a Pit thread, which can cause the GD post to have an insulting thread title at the bottom. This still seems unacceptable to me – basically, it allows posters to call other posters trolls outside the Pit. However, other posters liked the way that Discourse can link to other topics.
So, how about this, as a compromise (assuming it’s technically feasible): Anytime a post is linked in a Pit thread, rather than showing the name of the Pit thread (I will try and create an example in this post), how about if the link is changed to read “This post was linked in a thread in the Pit”.
That way, those of you who like to be able to follow other linked threads can still do that, but posts won’t have a “RitterSport is a big doofus” tag at the bottom of the content.
