Dear forum:

You had us once with your 30 second posting rule.... you had us twice with a 60 second PM rule...... but now that you have changed yourself from 30 seconds to 120 seconds, a whole 2 minutes, I now, certainly, hate you.

If you were so kind enough as to die, I would be most graciously thankful.



Sincerely,
a friend to you,
Antago

I noticed it too :( But it should help cut back on traffic and spam (if that is the goal)

Who cares.
I haven't found one problem with spam yet.... and I've created like 30 threads. =/

This is just dumb. Thirty seconds was perfect.



Even right now I am waiting at least another minute before I can post this reply...

Considering I only post something when I have something very valuable to say, this won't really affect me. I didn't even know about it.

The time limit would make roleplaying on the message board easier, actually, because you are less likely to miss other people's posts if there is a time limit.

Or those who read, think, navigate, and type faster than 2 minutes.

..

two minutes? good god.

Everything done on these forums to make them "better" slowly pushes me further and further away from them. It's depressing.

12-09-2001, 12:53 AM
Man, this is as stupid as needing a current p2p account to post.

lower the limit for posting. How about
if things like a signature/avatar/custom title
are easier to get?

^- Would that, in your opinion, reduce the
amount of spam?

PS. I am now going to be removing the useless spam threads now that I have powers. I will review the threads thoroughly to make sure that there is no real content before deleting these threads and some messages which are just plain illegal.

Don't be so strict. Most of the staff on these forums have a horrible concept of what "spamming" really is.

These are PUBLIC discussion forums which users have PAID to use. We can talk all we want in a thread, it is not spam.

As I said to Mercury, spam is constant idiotic posting of just plain crap that's not worth reading.

As for the avatar/text bit, people don't, as you say, "spam" to get those. They simply "spam" because they like posting and they like chatting.

No offense, GodSpeed, but if you are going to enforce a "no spamming" rule with an iron fist, then, judging by your current definition of spam, the main forum is going to go to hell.

Illegal?
And do not remove this damn thread.

That 120 second thing is absolutely ludicrous. There is, virtually, no problem with spamming. None of us are going to lose sleep over spamming. It's not a big deal.
Ignore the spammers and get on with life. grrr

people spam because they're stupid
and that's it

the only thing to do is raise the limit so people can get it through their thick skulls not to spam

Slaktmaster
12-09-2001, 04:10 AM
Blah. How great. :(

Its better than two minutes at least.

Hm.. make it 31 seconds. That way you make Unixmad happy by keeping it raised.

I only post 2-10 times a day, non of my messages are like 2 minutes apart, they are like 30minutes-1 hour. So it doesnt effect me.

TheFrozenFiend
12-09-2001, 04:22 AM
Oh no!!! This will effect my posting soooo much. :rolleyes: (I post about once every 3-5 days) :D

If they didnt want spam then why did they put up.....

I know it's not perfect for everyone. But then again (from my point of view) I really don't have much to say. It has it's good, and bad. Moreso for the good, because the spammers seem to outweigh the fast-thinkers. :(

Spam rose a good 500% when Lycia returned
I don't know if it's a coincidence or not
