Banned: Ha Ha and yeah posts

Post by Christof on Sun Feb 28, 2010 9:51 pm

OK, I have been looking over the threads lately, and I've found out
that allot of the posts are just "ha ha", "lol", and "yeah". The forum
is suffering from a case of bad conversation, and this is one of the
main things that's been causing it. I really want to fix this, since
the forum would be more fun and more interesting if we had some really
good discussions going. I think that if we just stop posting anything
like "ha ha", "lol" or "yeah", the discussions would improve allot more.

This is why I am now going to regard any message that just is something like "ha ha", "lol", or "yeah" as spam. From
now on: if you post a message that is just something like "ha ha",
"lol", or "yeah"; you will get two warnings and then you will get
banned for 3 days
(which means that you will no longer be able to access your account for three days).

Don't get me wrong: I have nothing against you agreeing with another
member or laughing at a joke that another member said. I just don't
like the way your doing it: with the "ha ha", "lol", or "yeah"s. If you want to laugh at a joke that another member said, you can say something like "ha ha" or "lol", but you have to ether add on to the joke or get back on topic once you have said your "ha ha" or "lol". If you want to agree with another member, you can say something like "yeah", but as long as you explain why you agree with the member and/or add on to what the member said.

I'm really serious. I will be giving out warnings and/or banning people
for a certain amount of time if they can't do this. People are clogging
up the conversation with these types of posts. If we can unclog the
conversations, then the discussions will be allot more fun and allot
more interesting. It will be worth it.

Just so you know, I'm OK with the "ha ha", "lol", or "yeah" posts in
the "Games" and "Whatever" forums. You can do these posts there, but no where else.

I completely agree. If you post you should be adding to the topic to keep it ineresting, developing, and significant for the next reader to add their post.

feel free to spell words correctly sometimes- but i guess if u have words that u use when u text and everyone understands them, guess that it ok. because sometimes, people will stare at the computer creen for 20 minutes and trying to figure out what some one is trying to say. (cough, cough. nudge, wink wink)

yea things like 'lol', 'bi', 'wht', stuff like that is okay. i like to use 'ikr' which means "i know right", and 'jk', which is 'just kidding"

I can usually figure out acronyms like that, but it's still kind of annoying.
