Some people add post to there current posts which might be incorrect!

theres an edit bar you dont need to make a new post just edit your current post.

Or punishment for people who just write rubbish in 5-6 words in 5-6 posts

Not easily...and not advised by Unfedfat. (I think he mentioned...I'll check)

Repeat or quote from the other.

ok, here's my solution again.

program the software which runs this site and allow it to stop any one from postin' one post after the other....i.e you post one reply but then you have to wait till another two till you can post another. that would mean that people would then have to start usin' the quote feature or as Importluva does is copy and paste the person's text and display it in bold and write your reply underneath that and so on......got the idea?

i think Ki2AY has a better one than mines.

matter fact, i think i do

Quote:
my thoughts.. i dont agree with you, no offense, but... that would be invading our right to post with freedom, its kinda like how we are debating on advertising, and intro's... im not saying, that we should have all the freedom in the world to do whatever we wish in here, but there should be a limit... and i think that delay which will cause us to wait till we get to post again is to much.. actually, i think that dosnt help, you know, we would just wait till we can post, and post it again.. get what im saying???

but i know what we could do, the site should have multiple post of the same person automaticly put it into one "box" or "post".. but i dont think thats possible.. that would be really helpfull...

you dont actually quote from the other thread, ur basicly just typing the "quote" code which quotes our post automaticly when you click the quote button. think of it as driving a manual instead of an automatic.. get it?


you type [1QUOTE]whatever u wanted quoted here[1/quote]


(ps. type it without the 1's, i just added that in, so that phrase wouldnt be quoted.. "catch my drift"?)

btw where are you going and for how long? im goin to miss u buddy lol.

Weapon R you on the correct lines

But say for example someone sent a message to do with the last previous and no one else sent a post...

the main problem is some posts drag on longer than need to be

(there weapon R happy now)

just wondering if "post whoring" is a pet peeve of some or an actual problem. Personally, I think it's the former, in which case there is nothing to "combat."

*Looks at title of thread, then looks at people in the thread* Yeah I'll have to agree with you on this on Rida.. The "post whores" are talking about getting rid of it, they'll be dry like strung out drug addicts.

Ok DSMer, explain this.

i joined CF one month before you did but yet, you post 21.45 posts per day whereas i post 9.88 posts per day. also if you have a look at the total number of posts, you've managed to reach 415 in under a month whereas me on the other side has just reached 578 in a time period of two months. that's 163 posts ahead of you and yet you got another month untill you to be a memeber as long as i have been. don't you think in the time scale of two months you would have reached about 900+ posts? whereas i have only reached 578

cos of this you should be crowned king of post whores!

You see WeaponR theres a vivid difference between me an you. I get no sleep. So I browse the forums pretty much all night.(Anyone will indeed notice my name always logged on) You on the other hand post back to back to back with about 5 word answers. Its not the fact that I have reached 415 in a month, its the fact that you have reached 578 in a matter of weeks, days if you will with simple smiley post. You have increased your post by at least 100 per 3-4 days in the last few weeks. I will gradually increase, and if I was post whoring don't you think somone would have said something or given any visible notice to me climbing in post, or is it that I'm actually involved in post and not just riding back and forth with opinons and 5 word answers.

*Edit*
Lukaz you just barley got here so you are in no way to question me or my posting habits..
