Spam/Testing
« on: June 07, 2017, 06:23:59 pm »
Okay, I just found out, apparently this site revokes your ability to post in the spam/testing board if you post there more than other threads...

I don't think they've taken my ability yet, but I apparently just got a warning for it. In my opinion that's a little weird, because there's hardly any interesting threads on the rest of the forum. That's just my opinion, of course.

I'm curious, though, why is this rule in place?

There are tons of interesting threads. Do what I do and look through the old ones when the recent ones get stale.

As someone whom once had this happen to them, I asked the same. But it's actually for a good reason.
You see, how the site is set up, each new page of a thread costs to run, and this site is run. And so to cut back on that cost, which only the Admins, and a few donors pay for, we have to put limitations on certain things. This also applies to PM limits. And why the paw system is in place (the more none spam posts, the more you can have in spam).

Or at least that's what I understand it to be. Another Mod may be able to explain it better.

I thinks the rule is to help prevent server strain and reduce site fees if I remember correctly
I remember a staff member telling me that years ago
There's plenty of cool threads
Maybe go compliment someone's art
Post in those random general chatter threads
Its always been a rule though if I recall

Ah, that makes a lot more sense. Thanks, guys! ^-^

If I had money and weren't too young to have a Paypal account or something, I'd donate to the site myself xD

I guess that's something to look forward to when I'm older.

The Spam board really isn't meant for extended discussions anyways. Its basically only meant for forum games or casual chatting threads...half the stuff that gets talked about in "Say Something Random" could instead be made its own topic in a non-Spam board, if that helps  :fox-:P:

But yeah, its to control our server fees, since the site is paid for out-of-pocket by staff, and we don't expect anyone here to be able to donate ^^ (its appreciated, of course, just not expected)

Good point, honestly. I never really thought of that. xD
 Thanks! ^-^

I do have one more question, though. I can't seem to find the thread where it says how the paw-ratings work (how many posts it takes to level up, basically). I found it a few weeks ago, but I seem to have lost it.
