    Would this be ok?

    Post by User1 on Thu Feb 28, 2013 6:58 pm

    Not to abuse the forum systems, but would it be possible for what I call a 'post whoring' thread? I personally would'nt use it, but some people may want to increase their post count. If this isn't alright, it's completely reasonable to lock this thread.

    So you are asking about a spam thread?

    I've got to ask what simply spamming adds to the forum. Personally I'm against such an idea because it's pointless and will just inflate numbers. Post count will become less relevant. Not that it is important, but usually you can tell who talks a lot with people and likes to discuss topics. It would be similar to a reputation thread, "Rep everyone up like crazy!" It's pointless and removes the purpose of a statistic which is shown.

    That's a pretty good point you make there Tolvo. And pretty much agree completely.

    I'm pretty sure we've already got what might as well be a spamming thread...

    You might have seen it, it's called "Random Off-Topic", over 10 000 posts and counting. (that is an estimate based on the fact that my post count is normally similar to the thread, though it's probably higher than my post count by now)

    Well, everyone has made good points. I, as I said, would'nt use it, but I know people who just love big numbers on their profiles. e.g. Gamerscore.
    Also, Vinyl, I can finally uprep you.

    Fricking hell, Off-Topic again. I can wait until tomorrow. Just post in a random non Off-Topic thread, and I'll do it then. I am determined to see this through.

    Serious is right lol, we already have a "spam" thread. Besides if you made one every second post would be mine and nothing would change silly

    I think I'm opposed to the idea, just because something is against the rules doesn't mean it should be done. This seems to be one of those things.

    However I would be in support of an up-repping thread. In Off-Topic. Because I'm an idiot.
