    Exactly what Ozzy said Scotty. Posts that are a few seconds apart are ridiculous, unless of course it is a debate on something intelligent. I don't mind the threads a bit, but the posts need to be spaced out.

    I was replying to the comment that the story thread was deleted when in fact it was not. The wish thread was not brought up and is irrelevant to the comments about the story thread.

    In light of the new rule that only one may exist. The story thread was chosen to remain, so the others had to go.

    EDIT: btw the other threads have simply been locked. So in fact the wish thread was not deleted either. They are all way down at the bottom now because of the large number of new posts in various other threads.



    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    hmmm..
    well ok, I agree with the bandwidth issue.
    but IMO, you either have to accept those kinds of posts, or just have an outright ban on "off topic" threads alltogether and only allow discussions about CPs..
    (which I wouldnt mind actually)
    but if this forum wants to allow "anything goes" discussions on any topic, then I dont think you can impose rules like "must wait 5 minutes inbetween posts" or "only one thread at a time"..
    we cant be expected to figure out when the last post was made in 10 different off-topic posts on 10 different topics..
    if bandwidth is a real concern, then just limit the threads to CP topics only..
    that would cut down the bandwidth usage by 95%!
    or..allow topics on anything but then dont complain about the bandwidth use..
    you cant really have it both ways..

    Well since it is a private forum you technically can impose whatever rules you want. You may not have any members left but it can be done! The timeframe thing between posts is kinda silly too but everyone is entitled to an opinion. Some aspects of the situation affect even the mods differently. What is a bigger issue for me might be less for someone else. Personally I don't have a problem with general discussion. But my arguement all along is that these threads that pop up do not fit legitimate general topics. So yes you can distinguish and say no threads of that type but Discussions and Question/Answer threads are ok.

    Scotty, its not the non CP discussion its the ridiculous gaming threads. You must not take well to them because I did not see a reply made by you in any of them.

    As for a bragging about chewing one of us a new one, that'll get you a ban Mr.
