New members posting a lot now???

Recommended Posts

Who are these new members who dig up old or ancient threads and add short posts to them? I see posts from at least four, each posting in several threads, and then there's another new name posting in several threads, and so on.

It’s out of control lately. But I was told to stay out of it and let the moderators handle it.

They’re trying to reach 50 posts so they can buy and sell in the classifieds.

At least this time it was probably obvious enough for Mods to pick up.

A modest proposal :   Limit everyone's ability to post to no more than five (5) posts per day.    5️⃣

 

That will slow down people trying to get to 50 posts    :)

Rational proposal- drop the ban hammer on newbies who are clearly posting nonsense in 10-12 yo posts for the obvious purpose of hitting 50. There are currently no less than three doing it as we speak.

You and Sarge and sometimes myself frequently post more than five times per day.

Iff I try, very, very hard, I can manage to keep my big mouth shut for a limited amount of time.     :eatdrink:

 

It will be a HUGE hardship, but I would be willing to "take one for The Team "   …..  :cheers:

True dat, BUT:

 

1.  we could either personally sacrifice our 1st amendment rights

  or

2.  limit only newbies to no more than 3-4 posts/day.

I guess I would be one of those you mentioned, although I'm trying to not dig up really old threads. 

I forgot my password for the forums here and just kinda forgot about it for a bit so I haven't been by in a while.

Now I'm back reading new things and adding my .02 cents here and there.

I had over 50 posts before I came back though, so it wasnt my intent to just get in the classifieds.

I'm wondering if the 3 newbies being talked about are the same person? They all joined at appx the same time (5-6 hours ago at present) and have posted 10 times right after each other in the same topic area. I find that curious.

I'm tempted to create a new log on and then see how many posts I can get in this thread.

I don't recall you. There were a few with longer and more cryptic names when I looked.

I am curious as to why this is an issue? I understand digging up old threads and commenting on it makes little sense, but can't understand why a limit on daily post's? Serious question from a newb...

I cant speak for everyone,  but my main complaint is not the old post being brought up, sometimes there is some great info in those older post, what sucks is when you click on the unread content link and there are 10-20  ten year old post that have been brought up by the same person  and the new post says something like "i agree," or "i was thinking about that."

No additional information.   No contribution to the conversation.

 

Why limit the number of posts ?     To prevent newbies adding 20 - 30 posts/day that

are old info with no new contribution - very annoying to start off the day reading

through 50 posts that say Nothing, NEW.     :eatdrink:

Jack, this is well within your control. Simply don't read them.
