Good place for arbitrary postings to make my numbers up?

Recommended Posts

I need to post five more times in order to view some parts of the forum - 20 posts is an arbitrary number and until now I only post when I have something to say...sorry folks, four more to go

There for a reason though, for example it means that group buys remain with people on the forum that contribute

You are not making yourself any friends spamming old sales threads

There are good reasons for the limits on some parts of the forum, stop spamming to get your post count up. 20 posts is nothing to anyone interested in the community represented on these forums.

This does raise a good point though. I too felt an urge to post, just to get my numbers up. The posting limits, depending on how you find out about them, can seem 'apparently' arbitrary. If I am remembering correctly (which happens sometimes), when a new user tries to go into certain areas, they get an error message saying "You need to post X times before you can see this content", which doesn't really convey the community-focused reasons for this limit. Typically, this is happening at a phase where they don't yet have a good sense of this community's style and etiquette (which does vary from forum to forum). If those error messages linked to a thread that clearly conveys why those limits are in place, and how to (and how not to) be a good community participant and meet those limits in a community friendly way, we might be able to guide newcomers into active community participants (or scare away people looking to pop in, post a for sale ad, and disappear forever).

Most people who join are said hello to and asked some friendly question s on entry . Doesnt take much effort to answer them and get to the 5 OR 10 posts required for sales threads ...

It irritates me to have to moderate any members who post rubbish purely to make up numbers by adding negative values to their post count

 

It is a pain in the backside cleaning up the forum from pointless posts

 

Respect the limits - they are there for a reason

Lots of everything: machines, grinders, roaster, beans, tampers, baskets, blah, blah

However - Too much is never enough!

Maybe so many posts and so many days like a week, then you don't get a spurt of drivel in one day and a sales thread going up.

It's a forum not a love in. Generally it's best to talk when there is something worthwhile to say. However, in order to access the gumtree and ebay links a 'contribution' of twenty posts is required. Doesn't really make sense to me

you should actually be adding points rather than deducting them - look at the interest generated
