He's only made 21 topics this month. Though, the month is still not over...

Also, so much limitations. Let's have more freedoms!

..or mods can actually MODERATE and warn these few users from creating an excessive amount of topics, especially when its sole purpose is to troll. Ex: Should We Impach Obama?

Why do you care about that's in topics made in the "Off Topic" board anyways? It's got that name for a reason. I can make as many threads in there as I want, and you can't stop me!  :p

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate most of your comic threads. However, I don't see a purpose in making troll threads (hurr impeach obama) other than the sole purpose of offending/trolling.

I don't see how the "impeach obama" thread is classified as a "troll" thread.  It's intention was to be a genuine political discussion about how the president is affecting the US.

Maybe he could have chosen a better thread title, but the topic itself seems valid to me...

 :-[

Actually looking at the rules.....

/begin rant

Quote
Spam - Spamming is the repeated posting of messages that are advertisements, abusive, or otherwise unwanted on internet forums. They can be in the form of links to external sites, with the dual goals of increasing search engine visibility in highly competitive areas such as weight loss, pharmaceuticals, gambling, porn, real estate, loans or computer software, and generating more traffic for these commercial websites.  Members who "spam" in this manner will be permanently banned.

^^ Nobody does this, except those one or two guys offering taobao help every few weeks, which I report.

Quote
The definitions and examples above are not inclusive of the full meaning of those terms; the examples cited are merely to give a guideline to understand the rules.  If there is any question about a decision by a moderator regarding your post, please email reaper@geekhack.org with all the details and it will get looked in to promptly.

^^ Then there's that which means mods/admins get to make up the rules as they go...

Honestly I've never really read the rules, it took me a few minutes to find them just now....

Quote
"Report to Moderator" Button Abuse


This feature is only intended to help combat against SPAM as it is defined above in the terms of use.  It is not what you think is an annoying post, or something you disagree with.  Those that abuse this feature of the forums will be warned once, further infractions will result in a 7 day ban for the second offense.

^^ I guess I kind of understand now why I was warned once before for reporting.

Quote
And also please refrain from starting a thread or posting about any banned member as it isn't allowed.

^^ interesting

Nobody likes rules and nobody would like the place without rules either, but many of the rules/policies etc are not followed and/or are allowed to be bypassed by 'some' people.

/end rant

I appreciate the mods/admins and what they do and hashbaz you have always been fair and very helpful to me and I appreciate that!

But are there any plans to possibly revise some of the rules etc to better fit what actually happens around here? Or maybe I'm just crazy because it's past my lunch time and I need to go eat now  ;D

You should start a topic about it.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Why not just ban TP and MW?

If no ban, then how about a troll tax?

Every troll post costs $1 (USD).
