Posting Too Often!

Post by Gandalf » Sat Dec 21, 2002 9:55 am

I don't like it when people post for the sake of posting. Its been no more than a week since these new boards opened and already people have posted up to 350 odd posts just for the sake of getting more bar things next to their names, and not being called "newbies" anymore. Shouldn't there be some kind of limit to how much people can post. 20posts a day for example. The people that post this much rarely say anything of interest or anything to try and help the person with the problem. For example, "Yea I think that too" end of post. I know some people post lots that give lots of good help so it would be a drawback for some, what does everyone else think? :huh:

I hate that people just post and all, but 20 messages a day wouldn't be good at all. I have to make around or more then that a day...... and some people actually do help by popsting more then 20.... but as dustin sayd, if you see people doing that pm me, dustin or jake and we'd be glad to take care of it :)

20 posts a day was just an example. Also, I didn't mean people just posting for the hell of it, I meant people posting too much, one line posts for example, that aren't really helping that much. It is hard to explain now; if it was not clear from my original message, i think AmAndA knows what I mean. <_<

Yea I agree with all of those things posted in the last few days on here. The post limit was simply an idea to deter people from giving large ammounts of useless posts. Maybe the rank should be determined by number of words? Im trying to think of another solution. Also, what are the boudaries, 50 posts = 2bars? ps, post whores lol :)
