Look at this guys...the forums already are insane, people posting "Cake or Pie" in the General forum of the gaming website. You guys need to sit the fuck down....stop trying to bring your post count up and runing the forums.

Sign this if your with me.....if not well........keep on spaming.

None of us are spamming, were just going insane in the wake of a great site launch. I don't see myself making any irrelevant posts, so I stand by my post count with pride, not shame

Although i don't see that much spam i do think they should take down the top posters because it's just going to turn into a competition and spamming will happen.

This happens on every forum, especially at the start of such a big one.

You can't stop it no matter how annoying it is, unfortunately.

Theres an easy solution to this. Get rid of the postcount. Works as intended. Enough other ways to waggle the E-Peen nowadays.

I have been here all day (its evening for me), I have yet to see one irrelevant post, I go behind my post count. not because it shows that i am insane, but it shows that this forum has quality that users can post without spamming and still have a high post count.

Well, there are alot of strange topics where there isn't much interesting stuff going on, people just posting, but I guess it will die down once the site calms down and some moderators gets on board and all.

I haven't seen any spam so far as such. But yeah, I do know what you mean. If there were no post count, the forums would not be what they are now.

Getting rid of the post count doesn't really work in stopping people from posting lots, I've seen it happen on other forums.

+1 to post count for you, TC :o

and to me, for responding.

Cake vs. Pie is one of the most important topics in life.  Learn to live it and love it or leave it.

What about the point system? That shows how many additions you've made to the database and would be much better than post count.

I agree that the post count seems to be responsible for a lot of one liners in not so relevant threads. Like this.

I don't see much spam. they're just OT comments. It's just that the OT comments are mixed with everything else because nothing is listed in categories

Well it could be worse, there could be a reputation system, that would be abused to hell and back.

Ah, so a low score hides something. Interesting, good idea I suppose. Anyway, people have a right to post when they want, just wait for the mods to come, then if that right is abused they'll get in trouble *cackles*

Methinks things will die down shortly. It's just an explosive (Haha, see what I did there?) launch, and lots of people want to post right away.

If you think the forums are too busy, go do some wiki stuff. I've been doing that all day and I already have 86 points :)
