Default This Sections Rules

In case you don't read the forum rules up top about spam! :P

1. "Topics That Don't Belong Elsewhere" is for spam, but its not for "massive crazy spam" Examples of this is.

1-5 word replies, with another person for 2-3 pages. Few posts like that are fine but pages of it isn't.

2. Multi self replies like 3-4 times, especially if they are like 1-5 words.

Keep "spam" in the "spam" section. 1-5 word replies on 10-15 posts like "nice" "looks good" is a form of spam.

Actual questions like ... "Are you continuing this project" is fine.


Other rules will be added later as they become necessary.

This section is intended for namely "posts that don't go anywhere else" posts that talk about anything and everything from like...

Topic - My toes are cold, what should I DO!?
or
Topic - My dog got ran over, I want to sell it to a restaurant what do you recommend?"
or
Topic - So do you think russia and USA will have war!?

Kind of topics, it wasn't really intended to see how fast you can post

To try to help...if you need alternatives from calling it the "Spam Section":
"Miscellaneous Topics/Section", "Random Topics/Section", or the more straight-forward "Topics That Don't Belong Elsewhere".
My LS's site calls their's "Misc., Fun, Random", and another calls it "General, Offtopic Chat". On yet another site they call a similar section the "Chatterbox" too, if that's more what you're looking for.
Another, easier method would be to just delete the "Spam Section" part of it and leave it as "Other Stuff".

As for the spam issue...I'm sure if someone created a topic (not a whole section, just one topic) to be 100% devoted to random non-sense and actual spam, it would let people happily get it out of their system without bringing it elsewhere. Wouldn't really help people lengthen their posts, but there's no real solution to that besides the people themselves just watching their own posts for that sorta thing.

It already was called "Other stuff" for just about whatever we wanted to post but people started to spam it and thus the name was changed to "Spam section." :P

Aww Gulk why did you have to change the name of this forum to such a generic title? XD
I liked the sound of 'Other Stuff - Spam Section.' lol

Pardon me my friend, but I am from Nijerian Royaltys, and I need you to send me money. Please ignore the fact, that I can't spell Nijerian. Or royaltys.

lol Whoo! My idea was actually used. :o
I feel proud for being able to come up with something so incredibly long-winded and unimaginative that you (apparently) couldn't help but use it. XD

Gulk this section used to be much more active before you changed its name. Now its like people feel intimidated about posting and the whole forum has died down significantly in the past few days [weeks?]. I miss the old title, at least it encouraged people to talk. =/

Well, I don't want to call it something that would make people want to post 3 times per 3min or something.

Don't know what else to call it, I mean a bit of spam is allowed as you cna tell but not an excessive amount that would drive people that check posts for "updates" go crazy.

Quality over quantity they say!
