feedback New Rule Against Character Spamming

Recommended Posts

In my opinion spamming all kinds of characters on the thread title is really "hurting" the eyes and overall doesn't look very good.

Here is an example:

As you can see this pretty much should be considered as SPAM. Unneeded squares, money, ticks symbols and the CAPS is pretty distracting too.

Since they're not violating any rules and that this would just be an impossible rule to implement I don't see any way around this. It does not pose immediate harm to the community as it's simply just a method of advertisement.

@Death, there is some truth to @EmD's plight. This kind of advertising is both distracting and spam-y. While we don't have a rule against it, we can always have a "soft-enforcement" that we can implement to keep things a little more easy on the eyes of the community.

Thread titles should be simplistic but still, aim for the topic of the thread. It's like writing a book, it should be a title. Not a summary.

Agreed. I'm more inclined to read a topic that says "Epic Web Hosting" rather than "xxx Epic Xxxx taodigaoh Web Hosting xxxx oahgoauga <3<3 <3"

Yes, start being nazi and you'll end up with 4 people, good life.

 

just lol

There's a difference between being a nazi and having a classy forum. This isn't RPHeaven or whatever where people do whatever they want and bully their ideas into reality by using claims of "nazi", "autism", and other derogatory remarks. Having four classy, respectable, and helpful individuals is better than having forty leechers and negative individuals that do nothing but complain and bully each other.

Bump, @Death, I may have a compromise to what EMD requests and what your desires are. We could make it so the buying/selling threads do not appear in the "posts" box that shows new topics or comments. We stay classy and less "spammy" and they still can post ridiculous boxes without spamming up new post content that no one but them comment on.

 

Their concerns may be that their trade is affected, and while there is no sure fire way to say that "My topic may have been seen better if it appeared in the recently posted sidebar". Realistically, no one is going to look at the side bar when they want to buy/sell something. They're going to go to the forum itself and look at the topics (and they basically chicken-block themselves with the ridiculous symbols and capslock). However, we can meet their demands in the middle and offer a tab for the buying/selling posts that users can flip (similar to a bookmark) so people can see normal post updates, and trade updates.

This reminds me of a forum. Leeching and bullying everywhere. That's why I came to LordCraft and left that forum. @Death knows what forum I'm talking about. Never to be said.

The Marketplace section is currently a spam fest. One user in particular created multiple topics offering the same thing, but he changed Selling EU/US to Selling EU/NA... This shouldn't be accepted at all.

It's been awhile since information about this issue has been discussed. @EmD's latest post in June is also a valid concern. While not breaking the rules, it's bending them to the absolute maximum.

This is a form of advertising and to the consumers eyes makes me want to click on that post first. I do have to agree with @Valtorei there should be a  "soft-enforcement" against this. 

Me also :)
