question may not appeal to those in the forum first chosen...may have a greater appeal in another...but would like to try both.
Umm, as I see the forums - all on one page without categorization - and I believe many other regulars do the same - this will be a double posting and unnecessary clutter for me.
I'm talking about posting in threads.
Two identical posts, for example saying 'Hello friend' Is not allowed
cagsil and Misha:
How can it be "clutter" if you don't visit other forums covering other subjects that just maybe the question may fit into...? A subject may fit just more than one forum description.
It's akin to spamming.
Can you imagine if a lot of people posted identical threads on a regular basis? And not just two, but a few. It quickly fills the forum up with crap. It's best to keep the conversation in one thread.
I've seen it happen elsewhere. And the rule was the same. But it didn't stop the uninitiated from posting multiple threads. The extra ones were either locked, or if conversation had taken place, merged with the others. Repeat offenders were suspended or banned.
It's a default forum rule of any site that has an active community with members who don't like to be annoyed.
That happened to me yesterday. I wanted to post something funny in a couple of forums and it didn't let me.
there is no point doing so. just post in the right section or the forum and you will be fine
I also would see it as clutter as I don't usually go to specific categories - I just look at the whole forum list and keep going page after page.
That means I'd see multiple threads with the same name.
Misha and Dollar:
I'm new to the "forums."
I've been "surfing" around and I now have to agree with ya.
I now see why ya'd think a double up would be "clutter."
Thanks for responding.
Yeah, count me in the group who rarely visits individual forums. Most of the time I don't even go past what's on the first page unless there's something specific I'd like to find.

I have a list of more than 100 (106 to be exact) do follow forums, I'm just wondering if it's really effective before I register in all of them, signing up with 106 websites isn't a joke, it's time consuming so I'm just wondering if anyone here have tried it before, and what's the result?? ...

I have noticed a few questions asked by newbies that have been asked before and so many times it is probably impossible to count. I have noticed comments of annoyance at the same questions being asked yet again. I am sure at some point I will have been here long enough to get every bit as annoyed.I...

I have been seeing a lot of forum spam lately. I think it could be *greatly* reduced by only allowing new sign-ups to post under the help section until they've published one hub. After they've published their first hub, then they could post anywhere. I think this would deter a lot of the people who...
