I agree to this in principle. However, if the posts are genuine free offers that haven't been posted before, we'd all want to see them.

The mass posting by one person will exhaust their deal finds + will therefore make posting on other days that little more difficult, if they can't find so many.

As everyone that's been here a while knows, copying posts directly from other forums isn't allowed. Often new members don't realize exactly what they can + can't do, so you have to give some leaway.

You can automatically mark posts as read if you want, by clicking on the top right link on each forum section. Remember though, to keep a note of the ones you want to read amongst those mass posts.

For the mass poster: If posts are all carried out in one day, they don't all count towards the promotional tally, as the person has to visit on other days, with posts of just ten that will be included in their total. So not beneficial to themselves.

Thanks for the post Discogod. I too agree with you as I certainly don't want spam posts on here and believe me we have deleted many times more dumb posts than you've seen!

What happens is that like everything some people try to abuse the system, even though our promo is meant to encourage participation but discourage spam by only counting 10 posts a day as eligible for the post count total. We do try to take a pro-active approach by pm'ing people and explaining our reasons for deleting posts etc. and hopefully they understand and are not insulted :D

I appreciate you posting what you think here as it helps us to know how people are feeling about the site, please continue to let me know through a PM or a post here. Also, if you have any suggestions on how we can cut down on that while continuing to stimulate the forum through things like our promotions I would love to hear them!!!

Im not sure how easy it would be to implement, but what about a post moderation system, that way people could sort unread posts on what other people thought.

i.e dupes, spam etc dont get moderated but the rest quickly gets higher on peoples "new posts" list.

Perhaps the forum needs a few more moderators to help reduce the number of spam and duplicate posts. With the great promo that is being offered its bound to attract lots of spammers in the hope of getting a freebie.

Thanks alot for listening, at least i feel on this forum that you can be heard! As long as you've got things in check & dont let people take the p*ss that's all i'm concerned about :)
