Title: Spam Reminders.
Post by: Waya475 on May 28, 2004, 05:20:06 AM
Alright.  Once again, I have come across posts such as "lol" or "yeah".  Everyone here is above the age of 10.  I have enough confidence in you to create a bit of a longer post than that.  Maybe even in a complete sentence.....?

Also.  PLEASE TRY TO STAY ON TOPIC!  One joke post or so is fine, but I have now come across threads that are so incredibly off topic it isn't even funny.  If you feel like role playing in an intro thread, just do it on AIM or MSN.  It isn't even remotely funny anymore.  STAY ON THE DAMN TOPIC!  I DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR COOKIES.

Stupid threads will now be locked by me.  I am going to be showing less mercy.  If you think no one besides maybe 3 people are going to care about it, don't post it and waste space.  You can link people to funny things in a chat program like AIM.

Believe it or not, yanime has a chat too.  THAT IS WHERE ALL THE STUPID GOES!  I am seriously one of the only mods posting these days, so cleaning the board is almost my responsibility.

Thank you for listening.  PLEASE LISTEN TO ALL MY POINTS.  If you do not listen to me, I am not obligated to listen to you.  For example:  If some of your posts go missing and you send me a PM on it.  I may forget about it.......catch my drift?  Everyone here, especially the new members, really needs to listen to the mods.  Post counts have sky rocketed, as have page counts.  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, try to follow the suggestions I have made above.  Thank you for your time.

Actually, feel free to post some feedback.  It is obvious no one read because I still saw the same things today.  Posts with just lol or hi will now be deleted among other things.

I do admit, those one word "lol" and "yeah" posts are quite annoying. But, Yanime has always been that "Off Topicy" kind of place. Well, for as long as I can remember anyways. But, if that's the way it is, that's the way it is I suppose.

(um, now that I spammed, will you lock your own thread? I can't help but remember a certain forum which would prevent the need for this thread entirely.  ::))

yes, the off topic forum. but do you think that will make a fucking difference ? will people stop posting crap in the general forum if the off-ropic forum is brought back ? bloody unlikely, it will probaly just encourage them more to spam crap in this forum

I myself am getting painfully sick of the clutter in the general forum, so much that i left yanime for about a month. All the "whats your favorite blank" threads have to stop, only about 2 or 3 people care enough to post in them anyway.

And BTW, Waya you have the courage to say what all of us are too scared to, and I respect that.

Agreed.. I think this spamming is just stupid.. I totally agree with Waya.. Fan girls are ruining this board.. When I see three, "who do you think is hotter" posts in the same section, you know something is wrong.. I tryed to make a argument over how anime characters can't be hot because they aren't real, so there was no need to post and post and post about characters in a anime that will never be real. Its so stupid that the first post a rabid fan girl will make in a certain anime section (we'll just say Yu Yu Hakuso.) is, isn't hiei/kurama hot? I think we should have a warning system where if you are caught spamming more then five times, you are banned for a month, and if the spamming continues, they are banned for good.. This would eliminate alot of spam.. I'm probably going to be told that a warning system is a stupid idea, but I don't think so.. I think that this is a great idea, and will end our fan girl problem, or at least but a big dent in it.. maybe even worse..

Just bring that off topic thread back , damn is it that hard, you can bitch about it enough so quit your bitchn and just bring it back.

You know that if he didn't double post no one would've seen that he allowed us to put feed back.. Sometimes, there is a good reason to double post.. This is one of them...

You know why I did that?  To get people to notice that a new message had been posted, because no one would notice it.  And you can shut the fuck up.  OFF TOPIC IS NEVER COMING BACK.  And that would not solve all of the problems.  Alot of the problems are in the anime/manga sections.  Off topic is for idiots who cannot keep the same thought in their head for over 3 seconds.

And when was I bitching?  I thought that was a well thought out post.  Your name intregues me.  Just you wait until an admin comes back.

I liked the off topic section. I guess that makes me an idiot who cannot keep the same thought in my head for over three seconds.


ps- double-posting? I don't think that actualy helped your argument. People notice what you have to say because you are an important part of this board. Whether they agree or care is another story, but that cannot be changed by gimmicks.

I'm not offended, nor is Fonzy (I hope, the big girl...).  There is a good reason to have it, but more reason not to.  Now, I assume that the bandwith is not unlimited, so I think that paying for some people to be foolish is a bit much to ask.

Oh, and don't ban Rocky Horror, it'll only encourage him.

You should realise that Tabi seems to use Nazi and fascist interchangeably (as much I wish she wouldn't).  Don't be so sensitive.

Just had to get that off my chest, but wasn't sure which forum to post it in. As a self-appointed admin, I say it belongs here, amongst the Nazis, facists, hanicapped Jew hatemongers, and other Springer guests.  :-\

This thread is now (un)locked.

Yea I liked the off-topic section too. I don't think if it came back it would help get rid of the spam in other sections but I still would like it to come back.

I think there was definitely less spam before the off topic section left. But, what the hell do I know _ I'm pretty drunk right now.

It might've worked earlier to have the off-topic forum back but I think it's too late now.  I think Kakuzo made a post somewhere about a tornado coming in and forcing all the fangirls, spammers, one-post noobs, etc to leave.  
Title: Re:Spam Reminders.
Post by: Beauty In A Bullet on May 31, 2004, 04:54:38 PM
Yeah, that thing was funny.. Wish it was real... We need a tornado that picks up the things that are destroying this forum, and just carry them away to some forum that loves to spam.. Maybe then we'd have some real fun here, not the little bit of fun I get right now out of the short supply of interesting posts.. I mean right now, I spend about 10 minutes searching the forum for something to post in, then spammers or something will come in the post right after me and soon it will get locked..

i havent been here much these last few weeks, but for the short time ive been on I caught the whiff of moulded spam, but fortunatley it was in places i didnt care about or go into, ever. but some of the titles of topics ive noticed have lacked the movement of any cogs inside peoples heads.
The fact that someones doing something about it now is comforting.

*le sigh*

Can we just try and let things kinda... settle down for a while? Sorry, I know I have been busy lately, I had my girlfriend over all last week and I have been at her house all this week... plus I am just one busy busy guy. From a few days from now and after, I should be on more often, though. So I'll be back to help out, but in general, I want to get the board to the point where it moderates it self, you know what I mean? Talk of spam is almost getting more annoying than spam itself. ^^;;

Geez, I don't see why everyone is always picking on Waya. If I had a choice, I'd just have all stupid people shot, so stop complaining that he's trying to teach you to use things called "grammar" and "spelling." Some of you people could use things like that...

Everyone takes this board soooo seriously. That is why it's so funny. I mean, you just can't fake that kind of humor. Eh...oh, nevermind. Can't we all just get along...

ps- Judau, what's your girlfriend's email? I am going to get her to force you to bring back the off-topic forum.  ;D
Hey, if women can cause man to lose eternal paradise, surely they can get  one forum back...

Actually, Happy was invoking the "it's all women's fault" argument, which stems from Mankind's expulsion from Paradise.  Not that Off-Topic was Paradise, but that it's women's fault we were kicked out, they could at least try to make up for it my getting a forum back for him.

(sigh)...go to Sunday school ya heathens. That forum was anything but paradise. I was referring to the way in which a woman was so convincing that she got man to go against even the word of God. He gave up eternal paradise to please her. If that's not power, I don't know what is. Even more convincing is this verse, from the book of Buffett  "some people claim that there's a woman to blame..."

Just for a reminder about going off topic, everyone does it. We are only doing stuff since we can not get back on topic, we are bored, and we want to do something. Plus, some people are interested in their post counts, like I use to be. I use to have the highest for a long bloody ass time, but I don't no more and I don't care. I speak for everyone that message boards are here for informational value, but we are also still young, most of us are, and we are children at heart. So we like to have fun once in awhlie. Just cut people some slack, and don't crack down on them too hard if they go off topic. It use to be a hobby months ago for me, steven, bryndon, amber, and diane to go off topic and just spam the hell out of each other, and peter and charles would just laugh and tell us to calm down and we would.
