Regarding irrelevant posts

Post  Dark//Doctor on Sun Feb 08, 2009 11:50 am

Hi guys,

I notice that some of the topics have posts which are questions to the previous poster. Some of those posts dont exactly relate to the discussion topic. I would like to ask everyone for a favor.

Please try not to put question posts on topics. Unless they are questions which are important and apply to the general forum user, it would not be necessary to do so. If you want to clarify something, pm the particular user who is in charge of the topic ( why do think there is a PM function?). Sub-questions can be edited ( Like JK said, edit function) into main posts, coz it will not take too much space either

We, or at least I, dont want to scroll through 5 posts which are not totally relevant to the topic before we get to the main conversation. I think it would make life for us mods easier.

Off topic is allowed, but they should be attached below relevant posts.

Attached below as in on the same post like this example

(off topic) Something like that

Agreed, but IMO double posting should be used on topics to make updates so that it will attract attention to the topic.

Irrelevant posting allowances

Post  Dark//Doctor on Sun Feb 08, 2009 1:54 pm

Ok guys,

You can probably make indirectly related posts as long as they conform to this:

1) Should not be more than three lines long.

2) (For those with LONG signatures) No attachment of signature.

3) No more than three of such posts in one day on a single topic

This is only for indirectly related posts ( related to previous off-topic statement on post). Irrelevant posts should not and probably will not be allowed self-standing.

I think we should keep the rules as that. No point making it too long.

This should be copied and pasted into the "Rules" thread and locked. Any other suggestions?h

Before we put this under rules, we have to wait for JK's consent. I've sent him a PM so he should know once he logs on.

My suggestions on implementing these rules:

Ok guys,

You can probably make indirectly related posts as long as they conform to this:

1) Should not be more than three lines long.

2) (For those with LONG signatures) No attachment of signature.

3) No more than three of such posts in one day on a single topic

This is only for indirectly related posts ( related to previous off-topic statement on post). Irrelevant posts should not and probably will not be allowed self-standing.


Imposing this many restrictions on posting irrelevantly (unless it's spamming or flaming) seems a bit too strict. Not everyone will be able to remember these rules when they go OT and they'll rightfully feel pissed if we give them a warning point just for forgetting to temporarily remove their sig a few times. Remember, our forum is still relatively empty but as soon as people start to get really active it will be a lot harder to monitor this activity.

Why not just:

Minor offences: Double posting and going Offtopic too often
1.Don't double post. Double posts will be deleted, not modified. You will be PMed, so at least you get informed when this happens.


2. Posting too much offtopic: Do try to adhere to the guidelines posted by Dark//Doctor above but if we find that you are doing this too often we will PM you as a first warning. If you continue to flout the rules you'll get warning point sooner or later.


Btw: Maybe we should set up an Offtopic topic under General Discussion just for chatting and for everything else that doesn't go under a specific topic.

The forum is already able to track for us which are the topics that have been newly posted in lately, so why bump threads?

the forum will nt b able to inform everyone if someone jus edited a post
like say i edited the rules post
no one will b able to noe i actually edited it until they check the post.

personally i find tt the rules r quite ok
bt no more than three of such off topic thing is quite strict
hw abt 5?

er
i dun understand y must double posting b deleted
well if its jus irrelevant stuff we can del it bt if it was a bump i think we shall jus merge it wif the first.

n as for the off topic thing
its quite a gd idea so
i will make such a topic
