This is a DISCUSSION forum, for crissakes! It's bad enough that we're so restricted that we have to think twice before using the word 'hate' or risk the tomato pelt, or the DEV team running after us, that now we have to be told how to post, what to post and how much to post.

I have a huge question!

I am an avi maker and I make avi of a particular show...
my avis have been reported for being "abusive"

maybe because  I do NOT make romantic avis... I make comic avis..


and the avi was just a clipped video of the show...doesnt it directly merit the statement that the scene of the show is abusive?

Iam not sure where I should table this concern

People reporting not because they think it is abusive but because they dislike the poster/post is not a valid reason!

I am not sure what can be done.. or who is incharge..if the AVI forum thinks the specific avi was abusive i will be glad to remove it...

but who controls the statement of defining if the avi is abusive or not? the avi forum? or the show forum?

SUGGESTION: something has to be done about people misusing the Report button! maybe warn them for abusing it unnecessarily :)

REASON FOR POSTING THIS IN THIS TOPIC: ABuse of IF rules is a bigger crime in my opinion than spamming..

thank u

This is one very good feature to control spam posts. You guys can also enable image verification to prevent post padders. Image verification slows down replies.

You can also add a limit like 10-15 sec limit between each posts. :-)

If I think of some more ideas, will add later.


Twitter Fan? Smile  Are you a member of a Chat Club on IF? I think 10-15  sec limit would kill the chat clubs Ouch

150 characters are too much.
sometimes we are playing games which require only one or two words.

The 150 rule should only apply to members who are tagged by the dev team as spammers.


Yeah that sounds great!!! Smile

i know i already agreed with the idea but i went to read it again and i agree with some stuff...like the tfs thing..it is annoying...love the idea of hall of fame and the like button..also the tagging a member with the spam thing but what i disagree on is 150 characters....i'm a siggy maker...people comment in my shop and i reply by telling them thank you/thank you for visiting/thank you for liking and other stuff...when i write ....i don't need 150 characters...so that means that in order to reply to ones who come to my shop...i should write them a whole essay...doesn't make sense...it would be better if you keep 150 character for the ones who have been tagged as spammers not for every member...because it will be hard

Ok, I fully agree to everything else EXCEPT the 150 characters limit!
I mean we could mean million things in less than 150 characters!!!
Please don't do that, ppl will hardly post again!

well said, roxthefox... and i do agree...!!
 
with all the restrictions, it is almost impossible to post what you really want to post... as it is, this whole scenario is sounding a bit 'impossible' to be implemented in a positive way... and i thought about it... and sometimes, it is impossible to even say something in 30 characters... what if you just want to state your opinion that you liked a certain picture... or something like that... how can you say that in more than 30 characters...?
 
by all means, do limit posts that are only 5 to 10 characters or t4s or thanks post... like you have a system whereby somehow it automatically detects external links and changes the post... not sure how you'll do it but i'm sure you can come up with something...
 
however, roxy is right.. it beats the whole purpose of having a discussion forum when you can't even discuss properly...!!
