just spam them as dupicates. Thats what the buttons there for

It's absolutely ridiculous and has been for days,my annoyance is people get birthday threads spammed etc because they have to stay in one thread and yet we have countless new black ops threads daily.

I keep spamming them but they remain. Guess nobody else spams them then as I thought only needed two to spam a thread.

They are being multiple spammed believe me, unfortunately some of them are being created by the untouchables, one was spammed yesterday and came back within less than 5 minutes, no feedback request so I / you can see there is a bit of private pm'ing going on.

I dunno where this untouchable stuff comes from. I've probably had more infractions than any current active poster.

I've made threads for the last few big games (going back over 12 months). People seem to like my threads, my way of deciding whether a offer is factual etc, and the last 2 threads have ended up on page 1 of google.

Why should I stop posting my threads because some lunatic decides to post a month before release date?

And before Ryman moans again - he asked to use my stock checker links, which I pasted to him, and made it perfectly clear I was intending to post my own thread closer to the launch date.

Is it possible to set up a custom tab and exclude "Gaming".

Days like these happen maybe once or twice a year, so the members that get upset by them could use custom tabs when things get too much for their sensitive nature?

I think the same complaints were made last year about mulitple threads for COD 6 and the official response from a mod was "give it a week and it will pass".............

can we have a single thread with all the spam post count/like boosting word games. it's got like all those ridiculous congrats threads from years ago.

There was no gaming tab when that post was made.

Far be it for me to defend sainty, but boothy... you fail :P

As i've said,it's not just the fact there are loads of them,it's the fact some people spam Birthday threads for example,some people will spam just for the sake of it.

There's no consistency on this site,the rules are bent as and when.

Birthday threads aren't permitted, so they aren't spamming for the sake of it, but because they are supposed to be spammed.

Rules are bent in every walk of life, from parenting a 2 month old baby, to dealing with murdering prisoners.

To want an absolute on a deals website is something that will NEVER happen, when you can understand that, your stay will be a lot easier.

Not allowing Birthday threads is ridiculous,yet people can post thread after thread about the SAME things and they stay or get spammed and returned,it's madness.

Take your patronising hat off oO

I would guess that every single day of the year is someone on this forum's birthday.

It would be tedious. Its also completely pointless. Who cares if people on an internet shopping forum wishes them happy birthday?!

I spammed two a while ago, had the guts to leave my reason in the "Where did my thread go?" thread X)

oh and people are allowed to post happy birthdays, but they belong in the congratulations thread if it can be found.

I've just noticed it's been locked, so someone can start a new one.

Nope I'm wrong there was a newer one

The birthday ones aside,these gaming type threads get away with it in misc it seems,loads can be posted over and over.

I've seen BB threads and X factor threads get spammed because there's more than one,there's others,these are just examples.

I think it's the men spamming just because they can,i think i'll start doing it (_;)

If there's a lot of COD7 threads on page one, could you not simply scroll through to page 2? It might take you an extra 10-30 seconds to find a thread in the first week after launch, then it should be back to normal. A lot of the misc threads annoy me, I simply don't read them

Ideally you would want threads merging (keep xbox and ps3 separate) but not sure if this can be done
