    Exclamation Clarification Please

    Ok I'm new, so feel free to shoot me down but.....

    A question: Given the requirement for members, especially us new ones, to raise their "post count" in order to raise their membership levels, is there not (and the more experienced of you will know this better than I), going to be a tendancy for posts to be created just for the sake of making a post, e.g. posts of no consequence or interest what-so-ever?

    OR....

    Is it considered by those upon high in Newsgab, that there is no such thing as a bad post and than any post is at least an attempt at communication? This of course excludes any post of an unpleasant or unseemly nature.

    It goes by a case by case basis. If someone makes 10 posts all pretty saying "great" "awesome" "I'd do her" "thanks" etc in a few minutes they are deleted and the person may be warned and/or banned for a few days.

    Also please remember that your post count is only a small component that will lead you to being promoted to a higher level of membership.

    You could have 50,000 posts and your membership level will remain unchanged.

    The key thing that effects your level of membership here at Newsgab is your reputation. Contribute to our site and our existing members will thank you for your posts. Thanks = Reps and Lots of Reps = promotion through the ranks.

    Cheers

    Another thing we watch for, or at least I do, are replies that make no sense. Such as someone saying "that's great" to a news story where people died; this shows the person is just posting to post and took no time to read or understand the post. Also random posts such as "FFFFFF" are also deleted.

    And on that note, welcome to the boards, irj2, have a look around, get comfortable. I'll look forward to those posts...:thumbsup

    Of course, when I mentioned n00bs in an earlier post, I meant it in the spirit of mutual posting comraderie and in an entirely nurturing and caring way :whistle:

    All kidding aside...Welcome to Newsgab!

    Very glad to have you here! :thumbsup

    I just post what looks interesting as I'm wandering around the 'net. Credit always to the original scanner(s), capper(s), and or poster(s) of the content that I might put up here

    At risk of falsely raising my postal count by one, I would just like to say thanks for the warm and friendly welcome that I have been given thus far.

    Mind you, I now feel under pressure to post only the most amazing of posts, oops, I think my brain just left the building upon hearing that.

    As for the "noob" quote - I was just teasing

    Now you know how the rest of us feel... :P Getting serious for a moment, it's always nice to see new members here, who have both a sense of humour and the will to participate actively in adding to the forum.
