Re: Why come but not post?

also it means that the person isn't following the thread plot

which is annoying.

Thats why at a forum I go to (and mod) we have a rule that you absolutly can't make one word, OR one sentance posts. This prevents people from making a ton of posts just so they can have a lot of posts, as well as making a substantial post. Because really, if you're going to make a post, you might as well make it worthwhile for the next person to read....

And that is really the point of this all...right...to say something substantial...to connect in some way. There are people here who have more posts than I and less karma, more karma and fewer posts, the totals don't mean near as much as the content. I can't really tell who is who here yet. I have been watching this site for over five years but I only became an active member last year. I did this because I felt like I finally had something to contribute and I sincerely hope that's what I am doing.

In any event, I think Cecilia is right and her idea for her forum should also apply here.

Re: Why come but not post?

Yeah but then you have posts that go, "lol. that was so funny. I laughed and laughed. There, I got two sentences in plus my lol so I'm off the hook, phew."

Well, and that's why I said above that the totals don't count as much as the content. But for some people that is not the case. Cecilia's idea at least helps to limit the fluff factor to some extent.

That's got to be quite difficult to moderate.

If anyone has ideas for further welcoming the "0 post" members to say hello, let's discuss. I'm all for welcoming new members, not having strict rules and requirements with online communities.

Eh no, not really. We're not too strict on the one sentance deal, unless we keep have to remind the same person again and again. THEN we get tough.

Not that it matters anyways since the place is practically dead. A shift in interist from most of the regulars, and lack of interist from new people to join leave very few posters. People just aren't that into Super Mario anymore.... D=

I like your open way of managing your forum. Besides, when people *have* to post at least once to exist on a site, they might make the effort. But I am not sure if it goes any further. Some people just browse, but don't really wish to participate.

Gotta keep it up to date with enough new things to attract people often. Not always an easy thing to do.

Cast iron and treadmills? Oh yes. Still sculpting me to what I really want to be, and I love it. :)
