PostSubject: Spam posts   Sat Feb 07, 2009 10:58 am

In my short amount of time here so far, I have edited/deleted a lot of spam posts. This forum doesn't have a 10 letter lock so you think you can get away with it, huh? Suspect Well now I have some rules about spam.

What is spam?

Spam is NOT meat in a can, or maps backwards (xD) Spam is when you post a post that doesn't apply to the topic, and lacks any worthiness.

Some common spam posts:

"Hi."

"Lalalalalaaaaaaaa!"

"Haha."

"LOL"

"OMG"

"hmmm"

"ikdqcgviklwb.vcn"

"don't care"

"bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce "

However, don't be confused. Let's say AlienatedCowboy posts a thread about them finding a cheeky cat for 50 cents at a thrift store. You are aloud to say:

"OMG! That is really awesome, and you are so lucky! Have you decided on a name yet? I'm sure everyone would like to see pics, too. Very Happy"

But not just

"OMG"

Now are these going to help you? Noooo! So don't make them! They get deleted or edited! And when you apply to be a TT we will look at these things! We are watching you affraid

Another form of spam are posts that don't have to do with the thread.

Ex:

YellowSunshine55555555555555 replies to a thread called "Mypage help?" and posts:

"I got an ipod today."

Does that relate to the topic?

No!

Okay, so what should you do to make sure you don't spam?

Ask yourself:

Is this really short? Is it worthless?
Does this relate to the topic?

Please try not to spam!

I guess I did not realize what you considered spam. I hope I haven't been doing that. If I have I promise never to do it again.

Great guide. I've seen tons of spam posts and i've just been here for a few days. I think everyone should work on this. And like you said, they should lengthen their posts. "OMG" is just like not posting anything at all. Everyone should give their input and not just three letters.

It would be very helpful to others and they may feel alot better if you add a little to it and add some personal pizazz.

Great rule! I haven't really seen a lot of spamming, probably because you guys catch it right away, lol. Sorry if I've been spamming, a lot of the time I don't know it. Is it okay to just say "Hi, I'm here!" on the WTC? Or is that spam too?
