How About A "Posts Here Don't Count" Sticky

by Lawrh 12 replies
Seems each night some brand new member makes about thirty posts here in OT, dredging up old threads and making lots of the old "one liners".

I don't know if a label on the page would do anything, it's just an idea.

    Posts don't count here?!
    Darn, all those wasted hours searching for music videos.


    Actually...that's a really good idea.

      I think it's smarter not to put a sticky. Then it's easy to tell what they're trying to do. It's the perfect little trap.

        Nah - if someone wants to come in here and make a fool of himself, we're ok with that.

        It's interesting to see how many posts are made before the new person comments "why aren't my posts counting"....

        Then we get to tell them what's up....that can be fun, too. Don't mess with our OT entertainmet.:p

          I agree with Tina and Kay ... if they're making posts "to count", they're posting for the wrong reason.

          I quite like kay's idea. Should be interesting... will definitely spend more time in this section for such entertainment lol

          Crude sense of im humor? I think the stress of IM has made us just a little too cynical lol

    I agree with Lawrh,
    It would be so much more fun that when they ask why their posts aren't counting to THEN direct them to the sticky.

    What's interesting is that there were two offenders in the room when I made this post. Within 10 minutes all posting from them stopped. Gave me a chuckle.
