Pilot's Mess [chit-chat zone]

This is the forum to get to know your fellow pilots and the ONLY place to talk about everything else not really relevant to sci-fi movies, including your personal loves and interests. A true pilot doesn't discuss these issues while on duty.

Re: Tips to stop SPAMing

Well here are some tips to keep down SPAM

If you know any just add them ( nothing like get rid of somebody)

1. Don't Double Post use the Edit Button
2. Don't Type the answer if it's already been given
3. If the question has been answered the topic "might" get closed

Add anyothers you can think of

Here's one:
Try to make your post contribute something to the discussion. It's a bit annoying when you see a new post in a forum and you find out it's a reply like "You're right" or "I agree" to a post from last year. Add your opinion by all means, but don't clog the thread with pointless posts.

P.S. I think Ramses' threat of spankings will cut down SPAM in the future

Re: Tips to stop SPAMing

I dont believe that was the specific spamming issue. I mean, it would be a lilll dumb if somebody got on there and just made a post saying "yes" but that wasnt the crisis that was occuring. What was happening was the posts were being used for personal disscussions about nothing, more like using it for a chat post. The site doesnt really have a problem with people replying to scifi info. I think the spamming issue has pretty much gone though. I still believe something that would help the sight is if people had the right to delete their own posts. And cabalacomb (sorry for misplell) had a really good idea. If the post is not active for a certain length of timei t would automatilcally delete itself. The forums would dratically decrease in size then. But it's like, when i have a question, and i ask it, and it's answered, and im happy, the post is just going to continue sitting there taking up space. whatever just some ideas.

Re: Tips to stop SPAMing

True, what I said didn't contribute to the SPAMming, but it was something that some people were doing in the Predator forum... *cough* Phlub *cough*
It still clogs up threads, and was only being done to clock up number of posts.

Ok Night Blade, wat if u need to type a minimum of like 10 - 20 words or something for each post. Cant u guys kinda do that so ppl cant just say YES I AGREE! lol. hmmm, hey Hell Spawn i think we can delete our own post. I gotta check that.

u can, clik on edit and there should b a box that says delete.
OVER HERE - -> u can delete when ur the newest post, but u cant if ur in the middle somewhere.

Thumbs up I think....................

I think that if you keep the posts related to sci-fi movies or the one the thread is about prefrably and keeps interest in the Pilots it can stay. Example: Yhe hot one in the PREDATOR forum is PREDATOR CHILDHOOD MEMORIES!

heres another tip

when theres a one on one conversation between two ppl they could edit their previous posts. so the two would only use 2 (or 3 if they dont think thhey just chatting to one person) posts. like (sorry) when Yeyinde and Phlub chat to each other they can use their post just before (by editing them) and when a third person joins they just do another post...they dont need to delete the original post, they could just put a section underneath (like mine OVER HERE--> and write in there) of course i dont expect them to keep doing this but they could do it instead of posting 3 posts each.

Good point there & I've often noticed what you've just mentioned about & will not do that unless it's really, really necessary too!

How about this for a tip that I've followed?: Learn from other people's mistake(s), so you don't make them yourself & listen to pilots who know what they are on about because they know the difference between right & wrong.

I personally think that the best way to ry & not spam is to think before you type ( a play on think before you speak!) & hopefully through that spamming shouldn't happen.

Re: Tips to stop SPAMing

Shouldn't this be in the pilot's mess? By placing it here, isn't this...oh I don't know...SPAMMING!

Tip to avoid spamming #356: Post all stuff not directly related to sci-fi in the Pilot's Mess.




Hey, calm down, I'm just kidding...
