    Maybe there should be some kind of limit on how many threads one can start in a certain period of time?:rolleyes:

    Or, perhaps, someone could create a complete thread, stating WTH the problem is!

    I do. Just that 20 threads a week seems a bit excessive. If I'm the only one it bothers, that's fine too:p. Not a big deal.
    A limit on the number of threads you can post in a day is a good way to cut back on people posting every thing they see or hear.
    Just a suggestion.

    Maybe then you would consider if it was really necessary to start a post about limiting posts?:D

    I believe there is a limit on making posts period in a certain time - 30 seconds?

    I don't think these kinds of limits are particularly effective.

    I used to frequent a forum that had one sub-forum that was wide open, and even though they had the 30 second limit, there was always somebody that would spam the board by bumping a bunch of threads (their own, or somebody else's). That was really annoying, and eventually the mods would step in.

    There are all kinds of ways around such limits which I won't go into here.

    Twenty threads per week? That isn't much - try 20 threads in a few minutes - that is annoying.

    If the threads are informative and interesting, then fine.

    It's all subjective.

    Maybe you should start your own forum . . . Your house, your rules.

    Your stats average 3.25 post per day whereas mine approximate 1/3 post per day, but since you didn't quantify your opine I'm not sure what that has to do with the price of fish other than I didn't want to come across as postaholic.:)

    I never have a problem with back to back postings. That could be because i don't know how to type i suppose.

    It is hard to sort through the bubblegum Posts on some days when someone posts a loonngg string of joke threads. Perhaps the bubblegum could be divided up a little bit.

    Oh yeah, can't say bubblegum

    NSFW Jokes:s0140:
    Politics not exactly gun related.:s0045:

    Misc. stuff too nasty for casual lurkers.:s0087:
