Forum Service Announcement (Newbies Must Read)

Postby Femto » Sun Mar 13, 2005 7:40 am

And it goes back to what happened a few days ago in the Berserk forum when a n00b started a thread asking some dumb question and I mentioned how much I hated that. It's pretty funny too...

http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/flash/posting.php (aprox. 1.5MB)

Enjoy.

I was actually gonna use that 'search function' joke on that guy who asked where he could get FMA on the manga section. Then my comp crashed and I didn't save any of my work so it's all for naught. Maybe I can do that next time :roll:

Yeah, this is funny stuff. It should be stickied, or something.

Thats awesome but in all seriousness, I've yet to notice a pure n00b here. I guess you worked hard to weed them out huh? :lol:

I hate the word n00b. How bout idiot. Or moron face. Or faggmobitch. Or douche clown??

Any ways, we can reduce the number of stupid thread by making like a 25 post minnimum to post a thread.

Well I hate having to flame the shit outa people for makin new threads that are gay. So why not just prevent em from making threads untill 25 posts. That could encorage em to post too.

Yeah, I had thought about something like that too. The thing is, some n00bs might try to spam the crap out of the board until they reach the 25 mark.

It's better than nothing though.

probably... but then again to spam 25 posts would be kinda a lot so it could get noticed and ban or warn him or something....

btw i love the "beware of me tactical spam" title.... :roll:

Maybe edit in the FAQ about that, no thread-starting before 25 posts. No need for specific hacking. Presuming that they have read the FAQ, they wouldn't dare to start a new thread. Even if they spam the crap out of the board, we'll be warned beforehand and what kind of procedures to take. AND if they DO spam and say stupid shit, I'm sure most of us (ie You and Me) will discomfort the noob in various ways that will refrain him from commiting noobish acts.

So, you've been warned. No starting threads when you're new here, especially stupid ones. I have a thin patience. Otherwise, I'm cool with you. :P

Spam isnt necesarily bad. As long as its usefull and in the proper areas.

Hey, I'm a spammer too, if you've forgotten. :wink:

It just has to skillfully applied in appropriate areas. I've spam a lot in the early stages of this board. I spam with discretion nowadays.

No seriously though. You know who spams discretly? Starnum. Hes at about 1000 posts and you dont really even think he posts that much.

For the most part there aren't any spammers from what I've seen. Then again I need glasses. XD

I am not a spammer. :roll:

I think Starnum posted a whole lot at the beginning and has let up alot recently. When I first started posting he was posting alot more than he does now. Me on the otherhand am picking up steam. So close to change rank. :D

What the fuck am I, chop liver? Oh wait, now I remember, an actual Mod, yeah, that's it. ;)

Anyway, it’s not spam if it’s useful. I rarely ever spam. Oh, and no need to put a post limit in the Rules, let’s just flame Noobs as we always have. That’ll teach ‘em. ;)

I didn't know you had that option, and since the title said it should be stickied, and most importantly, I agreed with it... Well, you see the result. ;)

I don't... Those are m0d powers only. I guess it would've been more appropriate to say that I was thinking of suggesting that this thread be stickied.
