Guys,if you can limit the number of posts each user can post to only 11,then there would be more constructive talk on the forum.

Just a thought.

lol

i have 2.57 posts a day compared to ur 8.78 ... lol

if u wanted to limit the amount of posts, we should make the cut off at 8 or something..cuz there isn't too many ppl here (if any) with 11+ post per day!

but i think its a ridiculous idea..who cares about post whores...

Rob,

I would agree with that idea because of people trying to get their post count up to 300 just for a damn avatar, BUT. . .

I just joined a day or two ago, and my post count is already almost (or over) 30. That means my average post per day is pretty high. Yesterday, my post count was like 26.

Have you looked at my posts? It's not "yo yo, I like phat rimz, so gimme sum ideaz"

I actually try and contribute to the board and give constructive insight. Do you really want to cut down on the number of those kinds of posts?

Trust me, if they cut down on the number of posts, people will find a way to post a lot. They'll either get another ID with a second e-mail address (hell, I have like 8 e-mail addresses, lol) or find some other way.

Keep up the good work, though, Rob! Just 'cuz you have one bad idea doesn't make you an idiot!! : -)

Ok look FAT DADDY! You really are starting to bug me! You know what if you dont like a thread and you dont agree with the motives behind it then just stay the F*CK out of it! I post plenty of productive stuff trust me! So the other day myself and a couple of other members happened to be online at the same time and decided to add on to a pretty funny thread that we had going between us. And at the same time add to our post numbers so we could get avatars and an increased enjoyment out of MAXBIMMER! I thought this site was for members to enjoy, no??
But then you had to come in with your $.01 and just screw it up! So in the future if you open a thread and it doesn't look like a thread of you caliber just move on and go to another thread! Please just dont screw it up for the people that do happen to be enjoying it! And that goes to whatever moderator is deleting the stuff too, you know who you are!*uzi* :moon: *no-no*

The truth hurts BoB,doesn't it.......

You know,this is just to keep topics from getting out of hand.
I have seen other forums do it,and they have really great discussions. If you like reading *junk posts* then go to another forum!
This is a BMW forum. Yes there is an off topic section,but that doesn't mean that you or others can get into an insulting competition with other users or calling people bad names and stuff like that.(I have been reading too much crap lately...)

Keeping the number of posts to a limit,will discourage users from attacking other members with rediculous posts.....This will help keep the forum clean and help the moderators somewhat as well.

This is just a suggestion. I don't run the forum.

*th-up*

ROB!!!!!! do u not see that you have one of the highest post averages on this site!!!!!!!!

according to your theory... ppl who post a lot don't always post useful shit right?! If u limit the number of posts that means 'your constructive posts' are gonna be affected too..why u ask!? cuz u have one of the HIGHEST POST AVERAGE ON THIS SITE

ur whole arguement is contradicting

kal

p.s. now stop tryin to get ur post count up with this thread:madnoel:

*sleep* Ok Rob I think you are just mad because everyone always attacks you! I personally have never attacked you and I think almost the only reason your posts are so high is because you are always defending yourself in these huge flamer threads! So I think this useless thread should be deleted!@ MODERATOR PLEASE COME EXTINGUISH THIS FLAME!!!!

01-19-2003, 07:31 PM
Yes when you registered doesnt really matter it just means you have been posting more useless crap on MAXBIMMER for longer than most other people!

Bobo, or whatever your real name is:

My name is Brad. You can call me Brad, not Fat Daddy. My name is in my sig file (unlike some people, lol) so that they can call me by my real name. Anyway. . .

It's a free country, sweetheart. We're all allowed to post whatever the hell we want as long as we abide by the rules. Have you even read the FAQs and the rules of posting, by the way?

If I see something that I feel like replying to, then I'm allowed to reply to it. If the moderators feel that it was vulgar, off-topic, deriding, etc, then they have the power to delete that thread or post and even kick me off the board. We all agreed to these terms by joining Maxbimmer.

The first post I made in this thread was in disagreement to Rob. I respected him, though. I did NOT light his ass up. You, on the other hand, have chosen to try and make me look like an idiot and tell me I can't reply to any of your wasteful, off-topic threads.

It's people like you that keep me on the Roadfly e28 board for the most part. At least those people are considerate and respectful. The two main reasons I'm even on this board are: 1) there are a LOT of M50/S50 swaps in e30s here. I'm interested in something like that for my e28, so I need the info. AND 2) I respect Randy Sparre as a person and as a fellow Bimmerhead. I just got to formally introduce myself (via e-mail, albeit) to him last night, but that doesn't keep me from learning about him and his car and letting him know that I respect him. Because of that, I chose to come here to hang out with cool people like him.

You've already started talking about going to e30sport.net. Go ahead, bucko. You don't see anyone here missing you. If you don't like what I say or how I say it and the post is still here, then you can just press that X at the top right hand of your screen and close that post down.

I wouldn't be surprised if this thread gets deleted by the moderators, and I respect that. This thread's gotten way off topic and is completely pointless now. Thanks for making this thread pointless, Bobo.

Do you even know what a flame is? The only flaming going on is on your part.

Please learn to act your age. You'll enjoy yourself more; others will enjoy your company more; and you may actually get some information for once!!! :)

really..seems to me you rather pick fights with members by giving harsh opinions insted of useful info. then you say it is a public forum or I can say whatever I want.. Wait wait heres one recently used .. but I have to defend myself!!. HAHHA. but when someone says anything to you that is harsh it is ok to be bent about it.. you whine about getting flamed.. YOU BRING IT ON YOURSELF!..
you call this a constructive thread.. seems you have a lot of posts on many boards ..so who's the whore???;)

What's funny is that none of my posts are "Heyi'mtryingtogetmypostcountupbecauseiwantadamnava tar" :D

I actually try to contribute at least a LITTLE bit of useful info along with my stupid posts :)

BoBimmer,

wow, relax a bit bro... for the record, the moderator cannot delete any posts.. only the website owner (Administrator: BLISS) can do that. So you'll have to answer to him.


SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE....

Instead of reposting directly after you just posted because you forgot to add something (or whatever)... there's a nifty little thing you can do to your own posts...it's called EDIT on the bottom right hand corner of the screen. That way you can add to your first post instead of cluttering up the thread with more sigs and shit. There's a time limit to edit, but I noticed most of you do it within 5 mins of each post. I think the time limit is 20 mins. Look back at THIS thread and see what I mean... the post times are in the corner under your avatar.

man you should relax. If bliss deleted some of your posts which I think he has explained than it is his website and has every right to pull your posts. Have you read SOME of your posts. Can a avatar be that important?. arguing with moderator will only hurt you in the end. I am not flaming you man.. so take it in stride. An avatar is a waste of time and keystokes to fight about.
:huh?:

By the way you are the one that started bad mouthing me here about my avatar thread and came in and ruined my avatar thread. So all I was expaining is that your internet has that same little "x" in the right corner so if you dont like what I am saying or only have negative comment then DONT SAY ANYTHING AT ALL! Sorry to sound like my mother but seriously! I dont mess up anyone elses threads until this one I do appologize to Rob for that and I would appreciate no one coming and messing up or deleting my threads THYANK YOU@

How about closing a thread? Is that ok with you?

Damn, you're on a role BoBimmer.

Btw, Moderators can delete and edit posts the same way i can.
