I have been spamming forums for like.... A damned long time. I got experience in a big forum with tens of abusive people. I'm qualified in the art of flaming, trolling and spamming.

He, in our mud spamming is the ultimate crime. It's about the only thing you get silenced/frozen/banned for (the choice is determined by the content of the spam).

Spamming Forums I can live with, although I still think that the entire 'star' system they have got here is a bit silly.

It means that if you spam the board with hundreds of silly posts, you get to be an 'Elite Member' a lot faster than people that post sensibly. It also means that new posters with few stars get looked down upon by some of the more stupid oldtimers, even though the opinions of the newcomers can be just as valid as those of someone who's been on the list for ages.

I've seen both things happen more than once.

I've got to agree with Molly here.

The star system encourages posters like Xanferious and friends -Points to the 'heh' post in this very thread- to just post mindless babble of one-word posts. Aka, spam.

Should just remove stars and post counts from public view. It'd sure stop alot of the "undesireables" from posting their "undesireables".

That's from the old forums. I want all those posts back and my Elite Member ranking. I posted long and honest replies for them. I have some of the most controversial threads on my name... Hence why I want my rank and postcount back

hey hey hey...Slow down a bit !!!
First : I never said I'll be COMPLETELY gone !
Just I might have to cut the spamming down a lot cuz I dont have a persistent i-net connection now..
Second : Why do I have to go ? Cuz some nice people called my parents say 'You spend more time in I-net then in school ! If you got your exams screwed,just pray ! And,we have to pay just to let you kill your life ?' heh..As if I had my life without internet...Anyways,they wont pay for me to be happy,and so I got i-net only when I get some money for i-net cafe,or when I get the chanse to jump to classmate's place for a second or two.
Third : phewww...That second sure was a long one..
Now,what's so bad about spamming in forums,peeps ? Its rather nice I would say ! Isnt our life a game,so why dont play it in most funnest way ?

Fourth : Hmm...I forgot...
But,anyways,Gods Im Glad I Can Spam Today There , Friends !

I find that an interesting comment from someone with as many posts as you. And then I go to the TMS homepage and see every single post on the recent posts from you.

I noticed the same thing.  Every single one of the "recent posts" was by Xanferious.  4 of them were less than 1 line long, the other 2 were slightly under 1.5 lines of text.  It might be an improvement from his one-word replies, but it's still spam.

Is it just my imagination, or do the quality of posts seem to have gone drastically downhill since we moved over to the new system?

You're right, and I must admit I'm part of it. I've been spamming a little bit on these forums because I was one of the longest registered members on the old forum and I kind of miss my posts...

I suppose I could get all my posts back the normal way, by posting on serious threads with usefull replies that will hopefully help/convince/enlighten someone, but this certainly is fast, and more fun for a bit

Other then that, it's just a matter when I get tired of spamming. Have been doing for a 2,5 years now and while it is fun on new forums, it loses it's "edge" after a bit. Besides, I'm already second with the total ammount of posts. But besides that, I still do occasionally post usefull stuff when I can give a good reply to something... So I hope you'll agree with me that I do NOT only waste forum space.

You were a freaking newbie, boy.

I have that claim. Koryon had that claim. KaVir had that claim. You, my friend, were a freaking newbie. A newbie that, apparently by his own word, spammed the old forums as well.

And I see everyone else is noticing the spam as well.

KaVir: I agree entirely. The quality of posts has gone down drastically. But, I think that is because no one is policing the boards anymore.
