Recently a few, shall we say, certain member(s) of the boards have decided to return to their old habits of spamming. Namely, the moment I listened to Unifex and stopped flaming on moronic postings or obvious "star farming" posts.

Glancing at the front page right now, it is filled, and has been mostly filled, with one person only posting irrelevant/barely relevant information to posts. Comments? Ideas? Some way to stop this spam? (Hey, you guys may have yelled at me for flaming, but I kept the spam threads to 1 or 2 threads, not all of them under latest posts.)

Well, here is my take. Shao was definitely spamming earlier. Dulan made it his personal crusade to get him to stop. Shao begged and begged to be left alone. Now, Shao is attacking Dulan in just about every thread I read. Note to Shao: If you want Dulan to stop flaming you, stop antogonizing him.

This thing has gotten so silly. I understand Dulan's desire to get Shao to stop, though I'm not sure I agree with his methods. As far as Shao goes, it appears that unless Synozeer steps in, we shall be spammed forever. Though I will be honest, I have already stopped paying so much attention to this place because of Xan and Shao. I don't have the patience to deal with silliness, lack of curtesy, and hard-headedness.

#1 I havent begged.If it looked like that - sorry,I wasnt doing that.I was asking to stop flames.
#2 If you think I am spamming now - tell it,I wont be angry,but just instead of saying 'you're spamming !',say,what am I doing wrong.Or it'll be flaming again.Lots of flaming.


And,please,stop insults,k ? they look really stupid.And if you think that by repeating 'morons,twinks,stupid' you're getting discussion,or anything at all,moving,believe me,you're wrong.

And,one more question.
Is it so hard to be tolerant ? Is it so hard to be friendly ?
try better,you all will surely like it.
be nice

Spamming is not really a good defense. Its rather easy to ignore.

You can tell from MY post count I practice the spamming defense.

Darrik Vequir

Edit - Didn't want to get accused of starting a new post right after my previous one.

From what I can tell, Shao, you have ended every 'recent discussion' with a flame to Dulan. If you simply ignore the kid, it would go much better. Dulan even says stuff that makes sense... every once in a while.

DV... again

Edit... again - Also, wtf does a star mean? I managed to get one, and I have no idea how.

DV, the star thingie is sort of a counter for how many posts you have... 1-99 is one star, 100-249 is 2... etc. (not positive about the numbers, but i thought that that was basically what i noticed...)

Just a comment - as someone mentioned above, the amount of sheer spam on these forums has been quite shocking in the last couple of weeks.

I used to read them because I was interested in how people did things in other MUDs and maybe to get ideas for other MUDs to visit and spend time on. Now every time I visit the site the recent posts are always by the same few people and pretty much only saying the same thing. It's a shame, but I've stopped reading the forums because I'm not interested enough to sift through the rubbish every day.

I really hope everyone will settle down and start using their posts more responsibly because this was a damn interesting site until this happened.

Off for now

On that note, I would like to point out that, in the previous forum system, the recent discussions were absolutely useless to me as well... they tended to revolve around the introduce yourself, Tavern and other 'chat' forums. I simply went into the forum page and checked the forums to see if there were new messages ( Legal and Advanced Dev are really the two things I actually read ). There isn't really a lot of spam on these things, although Legal can get out of hand sometimes. The chat forums are meant to be spammy, so they will always be on the recent discussion list.

DV

PS - for example, one of the topics in the Tavern ( and recent discussions ) is current untitled 'songs...' and wonders what songs you have in your head. Very useful... but hey, its a bar... there are few intelligent conversations in a bar... look at this thread :p.

DV again

no kidding DV! that's what i've been saying for a while (ya know, the whole "post anything" bit in the description of the tavern, and the "general" section should be fun, with the "discussions" part for serious discussion...) but no one really listened to me, so i don't know if anyone will listen to you either....
