    People, this is getting out of hand.

    Posting unneccesary and ridiculous things just to increase posting counts doesn't make people respect you or make you look better on this community. In fact it's considered trolling (mthrnite posted a while back on that subject...) and is very annoying.

    We all may do this time to time, but try and control from posting those meaning-less post just so you can have a new ribbon.

    Look at the top ten posters of the day - it's crazy. People posting 40 or so post a day (I think the record is 120 post a day!).
    Contain thouself, folks. 'lol', 'this game sucks', 'who cares about this...where's Contra 4?!'' etc are pointless, cobtribute nothing whatsoever to the thread, and are simply a waste of space...

    Back on subject - No one respects you for having x amount of post. It actually makes you be disrespected and gives ya a bad name. Base your post on being atleast half-intelligent (doesn't apply to Testing Area, of course!) and let it contribute something to the topic - that's the more likelier way of gaining respect on any online forum.

    Just pointing this out or consider this a reminder...


    If there are any grammatical errors or something doesn't make sense, please point it out - as I'm posting this from my Wii browser (which, if you've ever done on this forum, sorta 'speaks for its self', I guess you could say).

    JPH is right.
    And thats coming from somebody with less than 1000 posts and with almost 5 years here.

    BUT, since GBATemp is a huge community it would be impossible to control the "useless" posts, no matter how many times threads like this are opened (or mthrnite's or any other MOD for that matter), there is always gonna exist the compulsive n00b that wants to post '=)' or 'WTF' in every thread he reads.

    Edited: removed the sarcasm out of my post.

    Well, your heart's in the right place, but even I'm guilty from time to time.
    If it makes you feel any better, the warn-o-meter is adding up on a select few.

    oh, and..

    Ah, damn I'm a dumbass.
    I guess this really doesn't help much.
    Maybe I SHOULD think before posting also.
    I guess just lock this topic up and we'll try and forget about.
    Sorry, Tempers.

    No worries, you alright.
    It's not like you created a fart poll or anything.

    Seriously.

    I mean, really.

    A little perspective here.

    Don't apologize man, you are one of the fewest ones that really see the problem and do want to do something.
    There is nothing wrong with your post other than not many people is gonna read it (for being on the testing area).
    Other than that my friend, don't worry. [​IMG]

    JPH I was joking. What you said was true, but I wanted to see if you are a bitter person or not by trying to say something that may piss you off, however you seem nice like santa.

    JPH, I respect you even more now. I find that there are some people( I won't name names) that only post CRAP AND SHT all over the message board. Whenever you see their post, it does only consist of lol or this game sucks my balls hard, or similar type crap posts. Thank you for saying what alot of people wanted to say.
