Am I the only one fed up of all the Spam posts on the [COLOR=#94954f]Miscellaneous Musings and Random Nonsense [/COLOR][COLOR=black]Forum?[/COLOR]

Edi posted a really useful post:- Windows XP to be retired in 2008 and it will drop down and disappear because of the spam.
It's posts like Edi's and questions of 'help' that should be on there, in my opinion. Not rep begging, post count upping rubbish. :roll:

Anybody else agree or am I just a saddo? :giggle:


I have to agree with you here dino, some of the posts aren't really helpful, but the mods can't see them as that bad otherwise they'd be remmoved. I suppose they're to busy turning HUKD inot a commmunist state :giggle:

Although this site is a rather large community, some of the topics aren't needed. (Bt that's just my opinion)

So: I agree with you (long story short)

Oh, and by the way, your not a saddo :thumbsup: :p

Why do women always need to talk so much? Us men don't find the need to do it... :whistling:

isn't the whole point of that section to be able to talk about any topic that doesn't offend people, hence the name "Miscellaneous Musings and Random Nonsense"

Yes I am trying to say that.
It's all rubbish and pointless. Why can't these spammers use MSN or something else. :whistling: :roll: :roll:

i wasnt saying its ok, i like to talk and dont see the harm in it generally, but do agree maybe today its been excessive, one thread could of covered all the above :) leaving the rest of the forum for serious issues :thumbsup:

Yes it is the point, but not hundreds of seperate posts just full of crap. "Count to a million", "Friday the 13th" etc etc etc.:roll: :roll:

I know - how does a site that finds good deals need to count to a million? :?
#12
count to a million....if thats not a great way to get your post count up...

mmm...just popping over to add my number......
#13
so we can only start threads in there that you are interested in? If people want to have posts like that them let them, if you like a post thats dropping to the bottom bump it up!

I never said that, DID I?:x
The Posters that want help or advice, post on there, if all this Spam keeps getting bumped up, then the people who want help will not get it because nobody will see their posts. :-( :-( :-( :roll:

i can totally see where you're coming from Dino, there are a lot of spam posts, seeming like when anything comes into someones head (like every 5 seconds) I seriously didnt post the count thread in a bid to up my post count (or, indirectly, anyone else's), infact i couldn't really care less how many posts i've made, just as long as i've managed to help a few people along the way. However, i do also also agree with what mightyreds is saying, that its entitled 'random nonsense' so surely it should be a place for people to be able to chat nonsense. May be there should a new section introduced?
#17
no but you are complaining about threads that you do not like. some people do like them otherwise they wouldn't be started.

If people are interested in a thread it will stay near the top if people are replying!

I did mention to Paul (Admin) last year about having a 'Help' Forum and he said people will post in the Miscellaneous Forum, but that was before all the spam started. Maybe he'll reconsider.
I like trying to help people, but to find the 'Help' questions is getting a bit tedious when these posts are mixed in with the spam..
#19
yep totally agree. May be Miscellaneous & Random Nonsense could be their own seperate entity, and those who dont wanna go near the spam. I dunno, may be then its encouraging general chit chat spam on the forum...but is that a bad idea after all? I mean, how can someone class something as spam or 'upping your post count' when posting something like 'morning' in the dating thread? Or having a private conversation within someone else's thread? Thats hypocrisy. May be that would be best left to MSN.....
#20
Mabey we should have a new sub-forum.

One for help and useful info and the other one 'spam'?

my point was in the dating thread we kept it in one place, we didnt start a new thread every time we said 'morning'

oh and it dont stop at conversations,lots of other members clog up threads with insults to each other and random images with no relevance to the thread

Yeah, but i wouldnt want to not welcome newbies to the forum :)
#28
i kind of agree, but i like to view the deals and talk abit of nonsense in misc too lol. i think the 'help forum' sounds like a good idea.
#29
Something like this?

Yeah, i guess it wasnt fair just to pick on the dating thread. I dont think the problem here is so much whats being said, as mods here do a great job, but the amount of topics being created. Surely if someone wants to chit chat, then the dating thread is the place to drop in

You can do that in the SPAM thread not the l337 thread (full rep thread)...

That way we could slag off n00bs without offending them - jkin. (or am i?)
#32
@emasu, yeah something like that (lol like the comment completely pi$$ed..... :giggle: )Although i think just have Help/Advice & Random Nonsense as sub-forums otherwise the forum frontpage would look too much

Nah i dunno, it would segregate the users too much i think. Not good for the forum me thinks... although i have to :giggle:
