I was talking more in general - people do post meaningless comments that aren't bashing or outright spam in order to raise their post count and this might be more of an incentive to do that. That defeats the whole purpose of discussion. This isn't directed at you, at least not by my intent, realize that.
In your previous post you also mentioned that people get bored of seeing IF Rockerz after having joined for a few months -- can you vouch that the same people won't get bored with the other title come a few more months? No, right? That's one of the reasons why I think adding another group(s) might prove to be counter-productive. Posting with an ulterior motive - particularly that of joining a ladder subgroups - tends to diminsh quality in posts and places in effect a social hierarchy that alienates newer members because of the perceived supremacy of the members in "higher" ladder groups. As a general thing, I feel people should post because they want to actually participate in a conversation not just as a +1 post. Of course, that isn't possible for every member but I think this might actually add fuel to fire.
Eh. Thanks for the advice but no thanks. Apart from the BW forum, the other forums are moderated by more stringent mods who often cannot properly distinguish between criticism and bashing, from my experience. The members on a lot of the forums/sub-sections are far too immature and sensitive for my liking; ad hominem attacks start almost as soon as one says something that doesn't praise the much "loved" stars.
I wouldn't know :) Like I mentioned earlier, this happens to be the first time we've crossed paths. Again, this post doesn't apply to you specifically.
I know you never meant it for me, i just cleared why i wanted more ladder groups !
There is set up of 75000, I mean thats long enuf to keep people satisfied, besides to get to 75000 some people may become old, jokes apart, being on such a high level will give u promotions !
Like i said before, those who do not do such stuff, they can be handled by the mods, by either us reporting, or if mods come across some like that
I wasn't advising you, its your choice, if u want to increase your posts and not get demoted your welcome to go wherever you want to,
If your so unsatisfied and think the mods aren't good, your free to report them to admin or GM's or any DT who is your opinion are fair.
I got that
