Post By JVCA. 13/11/08, 02:33 pm

'Kay guys... This is mostly towards our lovely new people... (and I do love you all, I promise. chuu~! )

PLEASE READ THE DATE OF BOTH THE FIRST AND MOST RECENT POST BEFORE POSTING IN A TOPIC! D:

If no one's posted in a thread in a month, chances are the problem has already been solved/the event has passed/the topic is no longer relevant. This is called "NECROING". Necroing threads is hella annoying, because it brings old threads to the top and squashes down the new ones - and as the threads are no longer needed, it actually doesn't help anyone. It's basically the same as spam. :c

I'm sorry for having a go at people about this, but it's quite frustrating, and happening quite frequently more recently. I'm not saying that you can't post in any topic more than a month old, but please, just use a little common sense. If anyone would like examples of O.K. necroing and not O.K. necroing, please tell me and I'll make some up to show you. n_n; For those who don't know, the post date is visible at the top left hand corner of every post - it's always there, so you have no excuse.

{/rant}

ILU GAIZ. :3

I'm thinking we request people who've asked questions/asked for help && resolved them, to put 'solved' somewhere in the title? Or we could edit it in for now....
It just makes it a bit more obvious? :3

//MAY HAVE BEEN BEHIND A FEW OF THOSE RESURRECTED THREADS.//

I suck.

As far as I can tell, you've responded when someone else has necroed them, but not actually necroed them in the first place - I don't blame you, and I'm sure I've done it too. That's half the problem with necroing - other people post without realising how old the thread is because someone posted in it just recently. :3

Does forumotion support like an agreement/notice thingi when joining? Possibly just a short list of guidelines (short so they actually read it), and that might help cut back on the new members accidentally resurrecting old threads.

EDIT: Hey, what do you suppose "Message edition duration limit for a member :" means? You can set it down to the number of days, hours, and minutes...

I'd expect just limits how long they can edit their own posts. Mod/Admin can edit any, but a member could be limited to editing their own post within perhaps 24hours, after that they can't change it.

That'd be my guess on it's function, although not quite what you were looking for. Razz

Re: Post Dates
Post By JVCA. 13/11/08, 03:25 pm

lol, I did. I read that literally a minute ago. XD

I'm semi-cbf, tbh. XD I can't see anything anywhere that would allow us to put up a pre-posting warning - I think that's why they put in the auto-prune feature. I think, we'll see how it goes: it is possible to set the auto-prune to just move old topics to the graveyard, rather than delete them completely, so if it gets really bad we'll resort to that, but in the meantime we'll see how it goes. n_n

heh ^^
I dont think we can either, my searching is coming up with nothing even close~

Although I was thinking before, isn't everyone sent a welcome message when they join? We could always put a few rules in there ... though maybe its not really a welcome message then sweatdrop

Well anyway sounds okay to me, if anyone wants anything revived they can just pm a mod?

Re: Post Dates

Yeah, I was wondering about that too, but I can't find anything in the new mod panel. x_X And yes - it'd be easy enough for a mod to move a topic back to where it came from. :)

...Okay. I think we're gonna need to be stricter now with rules 8D;;
Um. 300 members is alot and now the forums are getting swamped with spam and its getting harder to find things.

I think we should stop with the double (triple as well OTL) posting :/ I'm kinda getting annoyed... ahaha....

Yes. The edit button is there for a reason. Double posting is only acceptable if no one has posted in the thread for a while (3 days?) and you want to make sure someone actually sees your response, imo.

Well. ;;; The more people there are, the stricter rules tend to have to be?

They call it auto pruning to basket.

Could also put a warning/short guidelines message on before they register if you want, closest description for it is the adding image verification one. Possibly wouldn't hurt to add image verification anyway, and then tack the guidelines regarding replies on old posts, etc into the html page you create for it. At least insofar as I understand it.

Anyway, I need sleep. Night.

Oh, welcome message is under,
General- Under "forums", Click on "Messages and Emails"


Also, I just think that the help threads should be left in the help place with "solved" in title. Incase someone would like to reference to them later? <:
So we don't have people asking something that may already have been answered?
>Just my opinion. >.<'' <

Uhmuhm, but in other categories this sounds good~ <3

I'm tired, I may be missing the point. ^^'
