Mr. Me-Too a.k.a The Co-Signers
« on: October 04, 2009, 10:05:24 PM »
Recently there has been a rash of posts on the boards that can be summed up a post-count bumpers.  From this point going forward, any posts that are being made that are not adding to the conversation such as "Yeah, me too", "Oh, that's cool", "That's so true!" and the like shall be deleted.  The purpose of the boards is to carry on a discussion, so please, when you post, add something to the discussion.  If you agree with something, that's fine, just elaborate a bit.

Thank you for your attention

I also would like to add, if post count is the most important thing you are after, than you need to look back and see why you are posting. I believe that it is not the quantity of the poster and the amount of posts, but the quality of it.

You can have 1,000 posts that contribute absolutely nothing to the conversation, or you can have 500 that contributes to everything and you are looked on more with respect.

If you have any questions feel free to ask. If you feel your question needs to be asked in private feel free to send me a Private Message.

There is another fansite board where the leading poster ha over 20,000 posts and cares about his post count not a whit.  Quality, not quantity matters.

Yeah, I mean I understand the thought behind making the posts, if you're making them for something besides post count. I guess I could call it the Facebook effect. Everyone is used to "liking" something or leaving short comments on someone's post.

Which, in the future, may be going on here. WHO KNOWS! /endhint. But in all seriousness, it's nice to see people active, it's nice to have posts.. but let's try to have posts that serve a purpose. A few here and there of random responses is fine because you're trying to hold a conversation in the thread, but don't make it something that happens all the time.

If you're really concerned with your post counts, we can modify them for you. I mean seriously, it's not that important :D

By the way Reggie, did I put enough words in my trip report?  O0

It was 5 words short. You have 24 hours to correct the infraction or face a temporary ban.  Length of ban will be determined at the time it is handed down. :D

Posts like this one that was deleted from this thread are exactly what we are talking about.

Lets give this a shot. I implemented our Karma rating. So when you make a good, quality post, a highly respected member will be able to "Rave" it and you get a positive point. If they think its crap, you get a "Wallop" and go down a point. Having a higher Spunk value earns you more respect and could end up getting you special invites and such in the long haul. :)

We do have the power to ban you yes. But you have to deliberately break forum guidelines to get that. But this is more of a public service announcement. :)

For the record, in the 5 years of our existence, I think we've maybe banned 2-3 members. And trust me when I say they deserved it. This is more of a way to keep things in check :). I like it!

Remember RobbW... "With great power comes great responsibility." No walloping for funsies. ;)

I like to have fun with my posts, but I must agree about the "me too" posts. Those are so annoying. But the absolute worst is when you ask a question and you get: "I don't know, but when you find out, will you tell me?"

Please think about what you're saying before you click the Post button.

On the bright side, it's nice seeing more activity here. The place has been kind of quiet lately.
