quote BluAnimalTime for that different opinion then. There's the previously mentioned Krazzi as well. I actually don't have a post in mind that wasn't closed&removed which had horribly broken english and looked like trash. Yeah most of the threads are a couple sentences max, but that's not anything to worry about, especially if you aren't viewing those threads anyway because you dislike people advocating their streams.Alright. When I see a new member advertising their stream and make an effort to join the community then I'll have a different opinion. But until then I'll assume people like consistentluck (a guest) and NG XOVER to be 1 post ads.
If we're this desperate for new members and discussion how about we turn the filter to be members only for posting? If what I've found is true, people who take the time to make an account will be more likely to stick around than someone who is a guest.
I have no problem with these streaming threads, none at all. I have a problem with people who sign on as guests, make 1 post of broken English and punctuation with a broken link and then never revisit the site again. Because it makes the forum look messy. Is it adding to our rank? Yes, but no one wants to join a forum just FULL of advertisements (it's why I left MobaFire for Neoseeker).
If it's fine by you I'd like to reply to these threads with a post about joining the community with the goal of becoming a long term member, but I don't want to come off as a memberator.
That's all my thoughts on the topic.
quote BluAnimalI agree, noticed the exact same thing. You know, I'm actually going to start streaming soon once I get off for summer vacation, perhaps I could start off a streaming thread or whatever so we get more hits, and others know where to leave their stream info.I don't know, lorx. Out of every single streaming thread we've had only one has had a member who returned and discussed with the forum (krazzi) and he's been MIA for 2 months. Advertising streams is always a 1 post account wanting some hits on their Twitch. They don't come to our forum to add content an discussion, they come to promote another site that they actually will be using.
With that said I have no issues with people advertising their stream (as long as they're not riddled with spam and Trojans) but could we do a sub forum for it then? It just appears cluttered on the main forum. We'll have our typical threads and then a new thread here or there, then every page or two there's always "____ ELO stream, RP Giveaway".
That's just my thought on it.
