Am I? Do You guys think, "Oh No, Mr. sun king coming together has posted AGAIN?" Is It Too Much?


No, I just don't like that you passed me by (And made me cry, and made me blue.)

Just a few observations:

This is a very low traffic forum. 3000 posts in less than a year on here is a LOT. On a busy forum, where there is more to respond to, then it isn't so much. That might (not necessarily, I might add) indicate that a fair few posts are of lower quality, or posted for the sake of it. As a parallel, I posted on a forum with a similar level of traffic for 2 years and had 2000 posts. I either had the highest post count or second.

Often your posts are a handful of words, an acknowledgement that someone has posted ("Cool !!!!", for example). These posts don't really add anything, though they may stop the user feeling like they've killed the topic. It would be good if you could flesh these out a bita-hard-days-night-george-6If you're not sure you can flesh them out, don't feel obliged to acknowledge the post, but it is good that you consider these things.

Lastly, don't go on about being the top poster, or that a user has reached 1000 posts, or whatever. That can be irritating, and is generally considered poor netiquette. Really, nobody cares about the number, but a large number of very short posts, lots of negative posts, or starting lots of threads are the things that generally annoy people. Very poor grammar/spelling, Capitalising The First Letter Of Every Word and pointing out those two "errors" (often called "being a grammar Nazi) are often also annoying. I don't think you could be accused of most of them.

To conclude: I sort of agree with paulsbass, but there's no "too much" in terms of raw quantity. Just don't post for the sake of it (which is often called postboosting, and again, is poor netiquette).

Sorry MMM if I sounded rude, but it really irks me when someone says that Mexico is South America, and you know why? Because most of Mexican teenagers say that. They don't even know in which frigging side of the planet they live a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

 

Actually I find it quite funny that Americans call themselves Americans. Should they be United Statesans or something like that? Besides one of the most hated soccer teams in Mexico is America, and they call themselves Americanistas.  So there's nothing left for the rest of the people living in this continent. And actually we should be Colon, he discovered America.. or was it a Viking? Argghhhhhhha-hard-days-night-ringo-14

 

What cracked me about your post is that we speak with South American accent. Don't tell that to Marcelo, he would go nuts. Argentine people are quite humble you know pibe…. (with a high sarcastic tone) brian-epstein

I wouldn't worry about it too much Mr. Sun King, or I wouldn't stop posting a bunch or whatever. If you have something to say, say it, don't worry about over-posting.

We all have different rates of post, or whatever you want to call it, and I feel like if a topic is really good, it will stick around long enough for everyone to get a chance to voice their opinion on it. For example, I'm not going to be posting as much anymore, but I would like to come back to a few good threads that I could give my opinion on and I feel like your posting is one of the reasons why those threads stay alive long enough. So your posting is fine by me. a-hard-days-night-george-10

The only "complaint" I would have would be on some threads you and someone else, perhaps MMM, would post a lot of little posts and it would already be a two page thread and I think less people, including myself, were responding to the threads because they were already sort of derailed before they got started.

I don't think you are posting too much. Nobody should be self conscience about their posts, everyone has a right to post as much as they want to.

On the contrary, everyone should "be self conscience" about their posts. Walrus said it very well, it's called netiquette.

OK, first off, Mr. Sun King, it doesn't bother me that you post a lot.

But it could bother others if they subscribe to the threads and get 53 new messages in their inbox concerning new posts that really don't have much to say. We *all* go off topic, I sure know I do, but I can see how it can get slightly annoying to find lots of notifications for little to say.

And shouldn't you be in school, anyways, young man? Paying attention?george-martin
