I'm new here, but reading the thread I get the feeling that everyone really wants to keep some parts of geekhack (almost) exclusive. Spamming in a PSA thread about spamming pretty much says "we don't care about you noobies, get off my lawn!". Just my 2 cents, as someone who is a newcomer.

How about just a portion of the keys made to be sold to outsiders, like maybe 10 out of a hundred or something. "Get your scraps here kids!" Probably a bad idea, but the current one isn't really that great.

The thing with spam is if it's all in one thread spy (the list of recently posted in threads) still has room for lots of other threads that are not full of spam - there is often one thread here where spamming is being overlooked.  Spamming this thread had the benefit that it kept it in spy so there was actually a chance of someone reading it but hidden down at the bottom of the forum few would otherwise!

In an ideal world everyone would play nice and we wouldn't need to filter who can enter a sale but we live in a world where some people buy caps just so they can sell them on straight away for a big profit - they are taking advantage of genuine newbies who have not been lucky in a sale yet (like yourself? Not sure how your luck is...) and this is not good for the community and is surely part of what Bro was attempting to stop.  You've only been here a couple of months and have over 200 posts so you know 50 was not a big ask, though starting a GB is kinda cheating :P

There were plenty of newbies during this period who appear genuinely interested rather than just joining to get to 50 and enter the sale and they are very welcome, just as you are.  If you think we're trying to keep all the caps for longtime-member selves look in therapy for many posts congratulating those who won their first sale - it's just not true :)

I'm not sure if I ever tried joining BroCaps' sale (I probably did at some point), I only remember joining adamski's T800 giveaway, and yes I did not get anything. I'm bad at draws and raffles, I just join Hot Keys' sales and War of Betrayal to keep disappointment to a minimum.  :))

What a crazy forum management issue.

Most forum software have a minimum word count that can be set for a post to even be submitted.  I just set that high enough so that a real thought has to be written out for a post to even be submitted.  Never really had an issue with the post count bloaters even when I did giveaways that were based on post count.

I think it more has to do with people not really caring about the community and just wanting the caps. It looks like their theory is to just spend a day on geekhack, build up enough posts, and only care about the bros. Some people it seems like have ended up staying because they enjoy it here so at least we got a few new members that will be staying. :thumb:

I really don't want Bro Caps. I'm sure they're very nice but they just don't float my boat.

If I want custom key caps I'll make them myself. 8-)

I only joined yesterday ( well maybe 4 days ago)  and already have 25 posts, and i signed up not even knowing about any of the sales or anything, i'm just genuinely interested in stuff in the forum, not just keyboard stuff, and most members seem pretty awesome :p.  I'm more interested in threads about doing your own custom DIY keycaps than the group buys or anything at the time being.

I came here from reddit for Bro sales, mostly. I like both forums though. There are some real good shoe pictures on reddit!

It's also interesting to see how much Clacks sell for, and Ripster posts up recently-closed eBay sales. I wish he would make an Excel sheet or something for it.

GH has a show thread.
"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

Well, it's not irrelephant.  :rolleyes:

And yeah, I'm thinking it was brought about because of the Monster Mash sale when newbies would come in and spam post just to get that count up. Half of them were entertaining, but the other half did get pretty annoying--really fast.

And yeah, I'm thinking it was brought about because of the Monster Mash sale when newbies would come in and spam post just to get that count up. Half of them were entertaining, but the other half did get pretty annoying--really fast.
I bet you had a lot of people posting in Off Topic because that's the easiest section to post in, only to realize it didn't count. XD
It was everywhere. Completely meaningless posts in every thread. There were times you could pull up Spy and watch a single user spam ten threads in a row.

Nice necro. Brought back some bad memories.

Ooh, sorry. Didn't know I'd rustle jimmies. I swear that it was not my intention.  :-[
Also, it didn't give me the necro warning so I thought it was fair play (last post right before Xmas).  :'(

Sorry, njbair.   :(
Didn't mean for that to sound like I was upset. But honestly when I saw that thread title pop up in unread I shuddered a bit. But it was just an annoying phase, thankfully.

Was this the phase where people had to have a minimum score count for sales?

Well, it's not irrelephant.  :rolleyes:

It got so bad that the mods disabled post counting on every subforum to eliminate the incentive to spam.

This is what I sort of do - I go to unread topics, open in a new tab for everything I want to read, mark the rest as read then read/post. Feel like a **** now. :blank:

Nah, that's fine. It's when 50 people are doing it and all they're posting is like, "wow, cool" or "nice," that kind of thing.

There's nothing wrong with posting a lot, just make your comments worth the time it takes for you to click post.

It was funny for about 5 mins. But when you could check 10 pages you'd been following and not see any name you recognized, or any actual new content, it got real old real fast.

But if a spam star happens Im going TP this shizzz.

Can someone up-ban me or mute me from Bro Caps board?  I would like to post some pictures of my Bro Cap and not really sure why I was banned.  It's been a long time since I've posted, so if I did something wrong please let me know and hopefully time served is good?
