A Note From Your Friendly Conservative Mod On Spam Posting

6:46 pm - 11/09/2009
The moderators are getting tired of seeing multiple posts written by the same members in a short amount of time. This is called spam posting, and it will not be tolerated.

Symptoms Of Spam Posting Include:
- 7 posts submitted by the same member in two hours.
- Fugly walls of text.
- Unnecessary bumping of more interesting posts to the bottom of the community page.
- Boring entries no one wants to read.


You Can Avoid Spam Posting By:
- Checking the community to see what's submitted already.
- Posting every few hours instead of every 10 minutes.
- Not copy pasting whatever is currently on CNN/Associated Press.
- Adding your unique commentary to posts.
- Combining similar articles on the same topic into one post with an LJ-cut.
- ETA: Adding pictures or videos


Entries considered to be spam will not be approved. If the members responsible for spam posting do not clean up their act, posting privileges will be revoked!


Thank you ONTD_P, and stay fierce!

Are you confused?

*squeak, hides* I'm sorry? ;_;

I don't think you're a spam poster. Just space out your submissions and you should be fine.

Who even does that?

The more prolific posters to this community do not get all their posts through.

It wasn't your post and it wasn't you.
wonderpup 10th-Nov-2009 12:12 am (UTC)
Thanks bb. And most of the spam posters should know who they are, since we, or at least I, tell them in rejections to STOP SPAM POSTING.

I love this community but I forgot that I stopped watching it because of the giant huge walls of text and buttloads of post.

So thank you for this post sfm mods.

Also,

A nice picture is really welcome. My eyes just glaze over large walls of text.
lickety_split 10th-Nov-2009 12:19 am (UTC)
Yes! I feel really stupid for saying this but I am more drawn into posts that have pictures (at least at the top).

TYVM! Big walls of text are so much DNW.
violetrose 10th-Nov-2009 12:27 am (UTC)
Thanks for this.

- 7 posts submitted by the same member in two hours.

What, why would you do that?
wonderpup 10th-Nov-2009 12:29 am (UTC)
Girl, if only we knew.

Thanks. I was getting tired of duplicated posts of the same story.
wonderpup OT: Layouts10th-Nov-2009 12:32 am (UTC)
Yeah I'm back to working on a new layout after failing to do so for like ever. This probably won't actually happen until after exams, but go ahead and rec me any layouts you all like. I've been looking but haven't found anything that I quite like. It'd also help me to get a feel for how y'all want it to be changed (all links on top, etc)
schmiss Re: OT: Layouts10th-Nov-2009 12:36 am (UTC)
I actually like the mod community one. It would just need to be a little wider to accomidate the extra text/pictures.

I very much approve of this post.
paulnolan 10th-Nov-2009 12:49 am (UTC)
Are a couple of unrelated posts at the same time OK? Because I sometimes do that.

If not, sorry. D:
cookie_nut 10th-Nov-2009 01:33 am (UTC)
I think you'll be okay. :)

The mod literally means some people submit at least a half a dozen posts within a couple of hours.


A couple posts is okay, I'm sure. Like she said, if you submit multiple times, just be sure to space out the time between submissions.
anindeliblemark 10th-Nov-2009 12:51 am (UTC)
This post is very welcome. A+, mods.
akuma_river 10th-Nov-2009 12:51 am (UTC)
...I've been posting a lot...but the only times I get denials are ones already posted on subject (typically it's waiting to be approved and thus not up yet so I don't know about it) or you know...bolding too much (I'm getting better at it!)

So is this a sign I might want to cut down on posting or something?
mylaptopisevil 10th-Nov-2009 12:54 am (UTC)
ONCE AGAIN I CAN'T TELL IF THIS IS ABOUT ME OR NOT.

THAT SAID I GENERALLY DUMP TWO OR THREE AT ONCE AND JUST FIGURE YOU'LL SPACE THEM OUT OR SOMETHING SINCE THAT'S HOW IT WORKED WHEN I HELPED MANAGE THE BACK END OF AN ENVIRONMENTAL NEWS WEBSITE.

IF THIS ISN'T ME WELL WHATEVER IT'S ALWAYS ABOUT ME BECAUSE I AM IMPORTANT.
