Post Count in Spam Discussion

Mon Apr 08, 2013 1:59 am

Considering that no one really "spams" anymore in Spam, posts might as well count again. Doesn't really matter either way I suppose, but it's a forum with actual English and actual conversations. Better than most forums on the Internet at any rate.

What Eagleman said. The Spam Forum should count as posts. I mean, it is the most active...

I was under the impression that the notion of the post count being a virtual extension to your e-penis had been scrapped and abandoned a long time ago. But apparently I was wrong.

An argument of "it's insignificant either way" is not a valid argument for changing something so insignificant.

That doesn't mean that post should count here. Its the prospect of what could happen here and what happens here.

Why the hell is this being discussed in the name change thread? We have a specific purpose for this thread guys. I'm not opposed for this discussion to happen, but of all places, why is it in this thread where you request your name change?

An argument of "it's insignificant either way" is not a valid argument for changing something so insignificant.

Most forum features here are, but we still have gender icons, titles, special colors and special graphics. Might as well remove post count then. An argument for inertia is even less valid unless you have a compelling argument for why this forum, as it stands, deserves to not have it count. We should have consistency in the insignificant things we allow, and keeping things the same for its own sake is not valid. Just remove post count or let Spam count. I dislike internal inconsistency.

And Blood just one of those things. What, 4 mods somewhat in the convo already? Just food for thought to modify another relic from a time long since gone by. Plus I doubt all pages here are about the namesake. If you want to start enforcing it strictly might as well do it now but it hasn't been before.

The reason why there are four mods in this is because when this has been posted in, it gets checked. The conversation I don't have a problem with I just question why here of all places and not its own thread.

This thread does get some reinforcement. It isn't anal enough to have only name requests but it is taken care enough to ensure relevance to the thread. You can look at the last two pages for example. Honestly, I don't want to enforce this thread to a higher degree because I want to trust people with and keep Spam fun. Because for me this section is the bar after work and the rest of the site is the workplace.

To be honest, I don't really want to argue this over. Truth be told, it doesn't matter if you're spamming here right now, or if you're posting original and high quality content (Hahaha...) the fact remains that in this section spamming might well happen easily, at any time by anyone. Not to mention if people want to top up their post count they should be encouraged to leave the spam forum to do it, we need more people in the other sections. It's the same reasoning I'd apply to the news section.

As Blord said, this isn't really the play to discuss it. Feel free to harass mods with PMs if you really care that much about the forum post count adhering to your interpretation of the word "consistent".

QU, no need to be hostile.

EM is only discussing an argument, you seem to be becoming a bit confrontational.

Re: Name Change Request Thread

Mon Apr 08, 2013 5:53 pm

And this is not the thread for confrontations. :C :C :C :'C

Re: Name Change Request Thread

Mon Apr 08, 2013 7:29 pm

I'm not trying to be confrontational or malicious. I'm being dismissive of the whole issue as way less important than worth all the time we've already spent discussing it.

It's not a big deal either way, and I hear your point. We might change it in the future, if we all end up deciding that it matters enough to warrant a change.

There. Now we can discuss it in its own thread. Have at, at your leisure.

I've come to realize that the mods BR promoted equate to cops, good cop, bad cop, undercover cop, and the keystone cop.

Re: Post Count in Spam Discussion

Mon Apr 08, 2013 7:56 pm

So what do I equate to? I was a mod before BR.



.....and don't say "old."
