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!

*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.

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.

A nice picture is really welcome. My eyes just glaze over large walls of text.

Yes! I feel really stupid for saying this but I am more drawn into posts that have pictures (at least at the top).

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)

I actually like the mod community one. It would just need to be a little wider to accomidate the extra text/pictures.
