On most forums with a Post Count, and there alot of them. Well, anyway, on these forums with Post Counts there are people who post on about 90% of new threads, and post on 85% of new replies. The main reason for this is Post Count!

Post Count makes people do that for posts, and I just wanted to make this little thread because it is so annoying! Evil or Very Mad

thats true, but you guys are gonna have to stop quoting yourselves, so aoa does have a point. you and darkstar have been kind of dominating the forums, if you want to talk to one another, please use the chatbox.

I have to agree with AoA, he brings up a good point. One thing i can't stand is people posting in a topic more than once, unless it is your own topic. Everything else you need to talk about, or even if you get into a ''heated discussion'' (as i have heard Darkstar use as an excuse) you can just use the chatbox or a alternative way of communicating/talking like the chatbox or msn/skype, whatever. Seriously this forum is relatively new, we have under 100 members, yet we have made 1400 posts (can't remember exact figure) I am willing to bet 2/3 of those posts are spam, which could have been avoided by using the chatbox.

*feels like he has let off some steam*

*sighs in relief*

I'm glad this rant is finally becoming popular.
Clef did accept my point. The chatbox is their for a reason.

I've seen conkers and darkstar quoting eachother in quantities of 5 quotes in alot of topics. One of the reasons people do this is for beans, another is people think having a high post count means they are awesome/good.

I'm not being unkind, it's just people who post a tonne are, well, sad.

P.S. The forum itself isn't for chatting, it's for discussing. Popular topics may get the same person posting 5 times overall, in the space of a month or so.

Chatting goes for MSN/Skype/Chatbox or another form of Instant Messaging. The forum board isn't for chatting randomly.

Well hopefully now that your a moderator you will be able to enforce our point on using the chatbox and keeping the forum clean of cyber litter.

It's not a competition. I made this thread 6 days before you made your thread.

This thread was made on the 7th September, yours on the 13th September. It was never a competition, but I think you tried to make it one. But, no more off-topic now.
