Right... if Mango is drowning, than you're sailing a yacht... and Say's riding an ocean cruiser ;P


I'm very disappointed in myself... I thought I'd make 3000 this weekend, but I'm still about 50 posts shy :( I blame you all for not giving me enough interesting topics to post about  :P

I vote that everyone can only post 30 posts a day. ;P Or something. ;P Maybe a monthly quota they can't go over. ;P
Title: Re:I'm drowning!

I second that. Mainly since I don't make anything close to 30 posts a day :P

Of couse, that would mean Jason would finish his daily posting in a little less than 10 minutes ;)
Title: Re:I'm drowning!
Post by: B'rrr on May 03, 2004, 11:14:02 AM
you can't do that!! ...what does Jason need to do the rest of the day?? ...he will roam the streets get on drugs, start killing ppl and....

ugh, please!! no quota!! ...you will destroy his life ; )
Title: Re:I'm drowning!
Post by: Questing Character on May 03, 2004, 12:49:29 PM
And the lives of any and all innocent bystanders!
Besides....then what will I do when I've reached my quota?  I'll be forced to mope!
Title: Re:I'm drowning!
Post by: copycat on May 07, 2004, 04:40:40 PM
If I were only allowed to do 30 posts/a day, that would mean I can't catch up anymore during the weekends!
I vote against too.
Title: Re:I'm drowning!
Post by: Oldbushie on May 07, 2004, 11:56:56 PM
That's why I suggested a monthly quota of, say, 500 posts. ;B
Title: Re:I'm drowning!
Post by: Questing Character on May 08, 2004, 06:57:04 AM
That's still not a high enough quota for me.... :(
Title: Re:I'm drowning!
Post by: B'rrr on May 08, 2004, 08:20:28 AM
make it a weekly quota and i might agree ; )
Title: Re:I'm drowning!
Post by: Say on May 08, 2004, 08:31:52 AM
lol, I wish I could make that many weekly posts myself :P

I can live with that, I can't even make that many posts during a month! ;B

....I thought you already do that, ...at least, sometimes  ;-D ; )
Title: Re:I'm drowning!
Post by: Storm on May 12, 2004, 08:18:21 PM
Maybe it would be better to limit the time between posts instead of the amount of posts - make people wait 3-5 minutes before they can post another message. I wouldn't mind since it takes me longer than that to write my posts  8)
Title: Re:I'm drowning!
Post by: B'rrr on May 13, 2004, 03:07:13 AM
with my cwappy connection it takes forever to post ; ) ...so waiting a few minutes doesn't seem that bad ; )
Title: Re:I'm drowning!
Post by: racx_00 on May 13, 2004, 03:55:35 AM
i have a really slow internet connection so it takes about 1 or 2 mintues to post again ; \, but we shouldnt limit pplz posting time :-\, if they want to post often then that should be an option to them ;D
Title: Re:I'm drowning!
Post by: Questing Character on May 13, 2004, 07:20:21 AM
I don't see why we need to limit posting at all!  As Moses would have said to pharoah if pharoah happened to operate an online message board...."Let my people post!"
Title: Re:I'm drowning!
Post by: racx_00 on May 13, 2004, 07:27:03 AM
"let my people post" good one Q i couldnt have put it better myself ;)
Title: Re:I'm drowning!
Post by: copycat on May 13, 2004, 03:16:39 PM
Sometimes it takes me a few minutes to write a post, sometimes not, so I don't think there should be a spam-limit. Besides, I think Jeysie would suffer the most from such a limit, since IFAIK she types in her replies when she's offline, and then when she's back online she posts them all at once. :D

Yep, that is a common modus operandi for me. :D Not quite as common since I've been doing a lot of posting at work lately where I'm stuck with IE5 (grr), but still there.

I wouldn't care about a post limit, though. I never post more than 30 posts a day (and usually much less), so nyah. ;)

Peace & Luv, Liz

NO!  Jeysie!  You're supposed to side with me!!
Title: Re:I'm drowning!

I am? Well... OK, I suppose.

When the forum freezes, you get an automatic mandatory 1-2 minute wait between posts anyway.  XD

Anyway, I'm not imposing any limit until someone actually starts spamming.  Even then, the individual would be punished rather than the rest of the forum.  8)

Even though there are a lot of insane people on this forum, there's nobody that insane to start spamming. 8)

I don't recall them, maybe it's my cwappy memory, maybe it happened in a thread I have never read. Anyway, I may type fast, but I still won't spam. ;)

Post by: Say on May 14, 2004, 06:38:14 PM
you probably didnt notice cuz while it was happening I went like DO IT AGAIN AND I WILL KILL YOU RAAWWRR... lol :P seriously though, when it happened I deleted posts and told them to please... behave :)
