Default Add a new rule

I keep seeing SPAM...no duh...It's nothing new...And there's rules against SPAM...again, no duh it's nothing new...

But there's people that keep replying in the threads trying to correct the people, screaming at em that it's SPAM, etc. And at the time they're spaming to because it's a SPAM thread and any posts made in it is SPAM. I think there should be a rule forbiding people from posting and SPAM threads and leaving it up to the mods to correct the people SPAMing and lock the threads. Because to tell the truth knocking it up the page really isn't helping any.

Add a new rule? How, we don't even have a rule thread

There are reasons why people do that. For one thing, if nobody mentions that the thread is spam, then the person who posted it will think that it's perfectly okay for it to be there, and then will believe that it's okay to post most threads of the same kind in that board. So thus, the problem will only get worse and they won't be learning anything from their mistakes. To tell the truth, it's better to have only one spammy thread rather than several.

Second, mods can't be on 24/7, so they can't always be there to take care of the problem. It's better if the person who posted the Spam thread is immediately made aware of their mistake from a member that is already there at the time, and then letting a mod deal with the thread itself later on rather than just waiting for a mod to discover an even worse problem break out later on.

I must agree with Raik and NP. We NEED a rule thread. And w/e NP said. =D

There's your answer VT...

Look, I'm not going to go that much further into this. I gave my reason and possibly the same reason why many other people respond to these kinds of threads. I'll just leave it at that.

If we don't tell them what is right and wrong, they will begin to complain. They'll double post saying stuff like "How come nobody is replying to my thread?", or "Come on, I really need help". Which is more annoying then normal SPAM.

We have enough members doing that as it is, do we really need mods who scream at the newcomers instead of the normal members who already do that now? Besides, with more mods, we'd find more reason to keep everything in line, and we'd become more of a dictatorship or a fascist state than before.

Much of keeping a forum active is to let the members be able to do things. Too many rules will hinder that, and worse off is that there's no definition of what is SPAM exactly. Sure, we can say pointless/annoying messages, but what annoys me does not annoy someone else, and pointless is also in the eye of the beholder. Unless we define SPAM with concrete words, there's almost no way you can lock down on every piece of SPAM in the forum, and that'd just make members want to leave and never come back.

People I said the mods should tell them that they are spaming.


We do have rule threads. All the READ FIRST, those are rules and we should add that to it. That only mods can post in SPAM threads.

READ FIRST threads are not rule threads. They're scrap information thrown together. The URPG READ FIRST thread is different, but heck, they don't belong in the same group anyway.

Well hell add new scrap information whatever. Call it what you wanna call it but it's a guidline you have to follow and if you ask me, that's a rule.



And I know mods can't be on 24/7...

Which is why we have more than one mod...

Would be rather pointless to have "1) NO SPAMMING BLAHBLAHBLAH 2) NO BLAHBLAHBLAH" in every READ FIRST thread. That's my opinion anyway.

Well it's annoying and we need to deal with it.


And sometimes they do it for attention...

And that's what they get when we promote it.

Well take a look at the thread that HoennCallum posted even in this same board. After the question was ignored, what happened? He posted the same exact thread yet again. I can't say we really want that either, but that's what will happen if no one tells them that it's wrong for them to do that.

And honestly, I don't think anyone "promotes" the spam that people see in these threads. If anything, people are trying to condemn it.
