Nah they dont hurt anyone thus they arent a problem.

Na, they don't hurt no one because it's the forums, but they hurt the forums and the user's threads.

And here's a hypothetical:

Say they do ban one worded posts. What's next? Ban two worded posts? 3? 4? At what point does a post become "acceptable"? A full sentence?

I can literally type "I do not support this." and have that be my entire post and have it be completely acceptable under a "full sentence rule" and yet still provide what is asserted to be no value by the OP and others, presuming this is what the underlying suggestion is.

This just sounds like nitpicking for the sake of it.
I'm not asking for that. I was wondering why people spam the forum like this. There's no point in fixing it when the traffic through the official forum is so minuscule compared to reddit.

There's enough people going through these forums on a daily basis to warrant such a fix.

It won't stop it.

There are certain players that do this type of posting because it's who they are, it's what they do. Removing postcounts is not going to change a thing, just make the games forum more quiet.

No, no not really.

5 ppl asking for something isnt near enough.

Plenty of people:

Hey - maybe I can help with this.

For the month of June we had: 6,267 threads, 153,967 posts (38,901 of those are bumps). Clans are roughly 40% of all content.

4,511 unique members and a maximum of 216 simultaneous users.


Changes would be good for the forums.

I agree 100%. In all my time using forums anywhere on the net, I've never understood the point of a post count.

I am sure it came about to encourage people to post, not realising at the time trolls and spammers will have a field day posting the one worded posts.

How so?

If you bothered to read what Tuffty said, you could easily ignore them.

Not my fault you choose to complain about every little thing.

Who's complaining, we are discussing with sentences. That's right full sentences.

And Tuffty who never uses the games forum because he believes it's full of players who just go there for postcounts, someone who boasts about his postcounts even though the majority is through locking threads not through discussions (don't take this personal Tuffty just using it for discussion purposes)

One worded posts counts disrupts threads, disrupts the flow of conversations and they are not helping in the discussion of the topic.

edit

Like how you posted a jmod quote that had nothing to do with the topic...

It certainly did.

Well according to a fmod they dont so...

Not necessarily, very few of them can or do speak outside of the rules.

Fmods suppose to moderate to the rules.
