I agree about the spam, but disagree about the I miss you threads. When you're gone it's nice to know someone missed you, and being here as long as I have, I've seen people come and go, and it's sad when they do and would like them to know they are missed.

Spam does get out of control on here sometimes, and it makes it hard to know whats going on.

i think everyone seems to take the meaning of spam to be 'nething not depressing and extremely serious' that's NOT what spamming is. spamming is repeatedly posting non-stop with nothing at all in ne way relevant, or the same thing over and over again. saying 'how much do you miss (blank)' isn't spam, and even if there are a lota those polls, that's only cause so many ppl have left. o and if you post a lot and it's relevant, it's not spam as long as you don't do it constantly.

i think ALL forms of spamming should now go on in the spam thread, bo selecta, or word association(sp?)... leave threads to actually talk about something... the spamming threads should be just that... a place to spam... and the only place to spam...

note: i am the biggest spam whore on the forums... and i am trying to not spam real threads... im trying to end my spamming ways.... i realize how much hell it can put people through when they cant find a thread or have to look through mindless crap for a real convo about something...

love to all!xxxx

'Nother note. "Who Misses..." are important sometimes! Certain board members go away because of RL or depression encircling them, and the polls help to both raise their self esteem to let them know they're missed, and alert other board members that so-and-so isn't around. Not a great argument, but I am a fan of the polls. If certain members left completely, the board would not be the same! Meh, love for the polls.

I spammed a lot during my first 100 posts, so I could get a custom title, but I think my average number of posts per day has gone up since I stopped spamming so often. Even if it hasn't, I'm still more satisfied with my post-100 posts.

this's what ppl've been talking about, spamming to reach a goal of some sort. i think maybe custom titles should be availible to neone with more than 10 posts

I read some posts through this forum, basically wi some people sayin they think the Flood Control is evil an it should be revoked.

To this I ask one question. Why?

I know I've been hit by it a coupla times, but it really isn't that big a deal. When I do get hit, it's cos of a short response then onto another response elsewhere...

I also belong to another forum, their flood control is set to 60 seconds. Remember that the next time you criticise!

I guess some people find the FC kick in when they post in a thread, then post again immediately cos they remember summat. In this situation, click the edit button on your last post! This will bypass the FC script and allow ya to post further. Yep, sure that won't add to the post count, but then why should that be important? It's not a race, an nobody is gonna respect ya if yer post count is 80% spam.

Yes, I realise the irony of this statement comin from a guy wi 4800-odd posts...

i agree with cheese. it is much better to have a lower number of relevant posts than a high number of spam posts. sure that means some people dont know who you are, even though youve been here since the start, but it means those that do know you, know you for your (hopefully) intelligent and witty posts!

hear hear! i agree


and one day i aspire to be known for witticisms and intelligence ... one day ...

really i do agree, i cant spam very well anyways although i have made valiant attempts in the proper threads tongue.gif spam can be offputting, hard to get what ppl are talking bout as topic gets warped so fast - also i find if i want to post in a certain thread the topic of the thing has usually changed by the time i get there, ok if to another decent topic but kinda crappy if is about pickles or something ...

Mata Is Right,spam Shoudl Be Left For Eating!, whats the point?

I don't necessarily think that spam should be eaten either...
and if the number of sane convorsations are dropping like the flies that keep running into my monitor and refuse to leave giving me no choice... then there're must be very few sane convorsations left.
And observation/generalization I've made: people spend a lot of time identifying problems... and even some time coming up with reasonable solutions, but they rarely get put into effect, and when they do they are rarely as effective as anticipated.
Case in point: if everyone just stops spamming by themselves (perhaps w/ the help of complaints like this thread), then problem solved... but I doubt that any more arguing or even reasonable discussion will help.
I don't doubt that this thread will soon, also turn to spam... anti-spam spam... it's be annoying, crazy, and hypocritical.
-----------------------
all this talk about spamming makes me really nervous about what I say becuase I'm worried that it'll be spam, even though I think that it isn't, and then I'll be shunned from the matazone community... and then where would I go?

i take offence at this! when i came on here people were already posting random nonsense. it is totally unfair to blame new people for this problem occuring. i know that i have posted some nonsense, but thats just me. some of the new people (aside from me) have been making some very interesting posts, only to have them destroyed by irrelevent nonsence.

what really annoys me is when people start in on the "i've been here since the start, so my oppinion is more valid that yours" type of mentallity. who gives a damn? so you found this place before us newbies. that does'nt mean that your opinion is the be all and end all of a conversation. it does not mean that you have been blessed with greater intelagence than the rest of us. so please cut it out.

Thats hardly fair...I'm still considered a n00b and I can honestly say I don't run around spamming. A lot of people on this forum a very unfair to new people. Just because someone is new to something, does not mean they are compleyety brainless!!!! mad.gif

Hopefully things will settle down a bit now there's a forum set aside for spam-esque posting!

My theory runs that it now should be easy to find posts that are suitable for whatever mood you are in.

Also, if someone is spamming it will now be spread over several 'rooms' so should make less of an impact on other users. *fingers crossed*
