What about all the Forum Games topics? How will they run, most of them usually require a one word answer and also forum games too, I think that the minimum characters count should be lower.

People can always get around this by putting lots of spaces, or maybe editing their post.

Can't you just ban Thanks posts?

A nice idea...thank you.
@ Word limit: many people make 3-5 word posts just to increase their posts count. However 150 is too many characters, around 50 - 100 should work betterThumbs Up.
@ Time limit betwen posts
Although this feature is active at IF however it does get annoying for the CCs. Some of the CCs move too fast, by the time you post your reply, the CC has already moved another 2 pages. We have some serious capacity to do nonstop chapad chapad at IFLOL. But anyways it is required and there is no other way around it.
@ Forum having too many restrictions:
Considering the extreme stalking, personal bashing, fake IDs and conspiracies that go on at IF..... my goodness I've never seen anything like that any where elseOuch. "Constructive Criticism" is fine but come on we all know that what goes on at IF is nothing close to being "objective" and "constructive".Thumbs Down Some members certainly need classes on being politically correct and graceful. People have way too much time at hand and way too much hatred in their hearts.
So yes.... I say WE NEED EVEN MORE STRICTER RULES here at India Forums............or a way to only allow people with certain morals, values  and intellect at this forum.... but thats impossible to figure out so stricter rules is the way to go.

For  giving us this wonderful platform to share our viewsBig smile and working day in and out to monitor all the nonsense that goes on around IFShocked. I bet the poor admin team had no idea what they were in for when IF first started.

(And no I'm not friends with any of the MODS and neither do I have the time to figure out which ones like which cartoon characters. I am only here to appreciate the fact that they do have a tough job at hand, how well that job is carried out is another discussion all together)

I still enjoy being here at IF because over time I have understood who and what to pay attention to and who to ignore so I could have a peaceful time at IF. 
As for the "intellectual minds" who are uncomfortable analyzing every second of daily Indian soaps here at IF because it too restrictiveLOL,  why waste your intellect here. The Wall Street Journal could certainly do with a few more "intellectuals" in this global recessionWink.

thanks for this!
i very much agree with your raina said there are some of them who just comment to increase their number of posts
some ppl generally dont write anything but a thankyou...or just post an emoty
i personally agree with your decision and would love to have it as a rule..not less than 150 characters per post

if we open a topic..obviously since there r so many members...there r bound to be differences in thoughts n opinions
but spamming n destructing a healthy topic only  if you dont agree with the topic tend to put smileys such as a ROFLLL emoty or a LOL one
which actually does offend the topic maker n like u have mentioned increases spam!

the rules r made for our good..and i would love to have more of them.
you guys work extremely hard as moderators ..n its our duty as members to follow it..!

also if 150 would be a bit too much..i thinkConfused 50-100 characters per post would be awsome tooEmbarrassed
Im not here to point fingers ....or take out my personal grudge..on anyone....just stating my opinion....
Thankyou!Big smile

I agree with Raina_lubDMG..

150 characters would be little too much..If we could limit that to 50 or 100, it should be no problem..

Ditto her about forum restrictions too..Even with restrictions some members don't leave any chance to mock and bash other people, actor and even mods, so I would vote for more restrictions than taking away what we have..Sometimes, it feels like people just come to IF just to attack other members and forums than to do anything else..It's sad, but true..

Ditto Raina..Kudos to Dev team for doing their job..It's sad they get bashed for doing what they suppose to do......

Oh what abt CC's?Ouch

ok i agree u wanna quit spamming....but like this...i mean why cant certain members b watched now on and c that they get warnings or tag them and see only those members dont spam....

How much can u say for topics lik where they provide HQ videos or other relevant stuff like pictures....i mean arent certain topics opened for discussions only daily basis to discuss over there..we cant "discuss" much or anything for that matter in videobies posts.....n i think even pressing the like button and not commenting 150 chars means tagging.....but then what if we like the post what videobies post and dont wanna comment on it....i mean many will just stop pressing th like button even if they like the topic if they dont wanna comment or cant comment 150 characters....

I respect this decision....but i dont fully agree with itConfused........I mean 150 chars now is too much....!!!Ouch
