Re: So many stupid threads

Ive seen it over there... But the traffic over there is crazy! 

 

Right now I have over 20,000 unread posts over there.

 

So with all those users mostly new of course you gonna see a whole bunch of rubbish.

 

But I am gonna get that game because it looks awesome!

What is the deal anyway?  

 

The HOME section averages about three posts a minute.  It makes me wonder if anyone is actually on HOME or just writing about it.

 

Off-Topic is cool; minus the threads about "your favorite color", and things like that.  Yeah I will participate in some, but the point in creating them, seems only to be padding the OPs stats.  

 

One could argue; responding to them is the same thing, but a single reply in relation to a thread that gets over 500 replies is peanuts.  Should there be a greater filter for these?  

 

Sometimes the OP will shotgun them out.  I will come on after a day, and there will be something like this waiting in the Off-Topic

 

What is your favorite color?

What is your favorite Pizza topping?

What is your favorite day of the week?

What is your favorite boy's name?

What is your favorite girls name?

What is your most prized possession?

Where do you like to go on vacation?

 

All in a row, and there will seriously be over a hundred replies per.

 

It really does get ridiculous sometimes.  Just saying...

All made by the same person?

 

I personally dont care I sit back and just read and participate if I think I should.

 

I am at work when Im on here so this site usually is my source of entertainment.

Yes, all the same person.  Every time!  I am not going to call them out, as it is probably obvious who it is, and I don't want to be that guy, naming names.

 

This is my at work entertainment as well.  I stay pretty busy, but there isn't work to do all day long.  Just don't let my boss know, LOL.

 

Seriously though.  It is usually the same person and, the threads are literally like the ones I listed.  I think the majority of people on here, like the OP and the threads themselves.  They really do get around 500 replies.  It is kind of ridiculous.

I'm with both Speedy & Moble on this issue, I see some Thread & think "**bleep**", not another "what's your favorite blah blah blah", I do think some, actually quite a lot of Threads are made purely out of boredom, hence some of them being like Moble has indicated, does it make it a bad Thread?, not necessarily, but I do think the standard of Off-Topic Disucssions has gone down on here, but I suppose you, me & everyone else is to blame for that too!

 

Just my two cents!

I'm not going to deny that the topics that I have posted came from bieng bored with nothing to do. Ive mostly been posting in the gt section here, and browse the off-topic from time to time. I thought I posted some topics that I have ever seen, and got some decent feedback from them.

Don't get me wrong, I like the Car Audio one.  It is the color, birthday, food questions that throw me off.  Again, I will partake in some of them myself.  At least they are in the Off-Topic Section.

 

I do wonder though, if I could pad my stats here by creating a barrage of useless threads, (again, with no reference to yours audioinstaller)?  Do these members get kicked for what is truly spamming, or are they in good with the right people?

 

Just questions I wonder about.
