PostSubject: Post Deduction   Mon Jan 17, 2011 5:06 pm

I think we should start taking away post counts from people because If you look at the forums, most of the threads are going really off topic.
Most of us are probably posting for our post count to be higher,
if we starting deducting post counts for every post that goes off topic,
we might reduce the amount of spam and off topic chats.

For example, one person posts a post slightly off topic, you can probably overlook that, but if they continue the off topic conversation, start deducting their posts.
Example: 1 off topic post = -2 posts.
Easier example: Person starts off with 105 posts, posts off topic, get's 106 posts, get's deducted, now has 104 posts.
So instead of just going back to their original post count, they actually lose posts which encourages them to stop posting spam and off topic posts.

I know I go off topic sometimes but recently I noticed most of the threads are being bombarded with spam and such.

Also I noticed most off topic conversations usually start with the same person, not saying who though.

Example threads with off topic conversations:
http://ideams.canadian-forum.com/t35p30-ohai-guis-c - From that page on Posts were deleted
http://ideams.canadian-forum.com/t89-boxing-ring-by-kei-o_o - Some posts near the bottom I think the thread was deleted
http://ideams.canadian-forum.com/t48p15-its-mikey - This page Posts were deleted
http://ideams.canadian-forum.com/t55p30-reason-of-inactive-mikey - From this page on Posts were deleted

Also people have been posted in really old threads to boost up their post count,
you should make a rule where you can't post in a thread with the last post posted more than 2 weeks old.

Well, i don't even know if i can "deduct" the posts, but i can remove them, or close the threads.
The Moderators or GM's should be closing all threads going off-topic, so i'll start closing these threads*, and then i'll post an annoucment about this, I'll also be "warning" them, until they get a ban on their IP or account or so on, and Off-Topic Section should be good enough. Alright. I'll start closing them though.

Question: Aren't you the one normally causing the spam or in the spam?

I only did that a few times, and the one who normally causes it isn't me.

I kinda knew that, I didn't want to say she was doing it though, I though it'd be mean.

Also, to stay on topic, I deleted some of the spam posts so some people lost some posts.

I never said I didn't spam sometimes, I never said no one spammed, you're the one assuming things.

Off topic: Yes Rachel, you're innocent c:
