alright, lads ladies and daisies

no pitchforks, no witch hunts, no singling people out, no suppression of free speech, no naughty stair, no none of that

just a frankly genius original idea to limit the amount of new threads you can create and the times you may post in a single day.

we are limited to 2 poems per day to reduce spam, yet the strange mystery meat abounds in the forums.

this will keep topics more balanced. the only downside i can see is you won't be able to post as many pictures of your cat.

thoughts?

Two...

Maybe four...

That would stop the idiots...

no suppression of free speech, we just want to limit the amount you can post...

that could have been a good poem without starting a thread; spammers could have spammed the comment section.

I see a lot more passion for politics than any real decent poetry from anyone, and people talking about idiots?

Apologises if I offend.
Some of us do try to post their art work and somewhat decent stuff in the forums.

Advice to myself: ignore the fucking bait.

Eh,.. Interesting suggestion, but I don't really feel like this would be a good idea.

Maybe it would be wise to have a limit on the number of threads someone can start in one day,.. But as far as I know, there's no one out there starting more than one or two.

As for the limit on forum posts, I don't really see a good reason for it either,
a while back I was looking at a few other poetry sites, most of their forums were dead, which really turned me off to wanting to join. It made it seem like the site was dead. I think that if there was a set limit on the number of times people could post in the forums per day, it might cause them to stop interacting with each other,.. which would defeat the purpose of having forums, but I could be way off.

Just my thoughts c:

More patience and no thread like ďjust to clarify something...Ē
then do it in your own poem section and be patient for anyone to respond, donít start a whole thread for 2 people that were in on the convo.
This place is oversaturated with junk.

Idk, I don't really see the point of limiting forum posts, but that's just my opinion 😋☺️

Me either, on limiting the posts in forums.
Just look at the numbers on the threads where effort is being put in, to where effort isnít.

Which no topic thread are people more than likely to go back and re-read? lol

Ricky...you hopefully know I respect you...

But on this , I totally disagree with you...

You , yourself , post more junk , than most on this site...

Your art is great...I wish you well in your success...

Yet much of your other posts...

Well , I shall say , I would question the merit...

Do be careful with who you question , when
others could point out how much of your posting
lacks deep content , or applicability to the situation...

Are we cool ?

And Iím not about to continue conversing with anyone on this.

Iíll remain on Ummís thread and posting my junk there.
Will also leave the ďpositive things every dayĒ thread alone too. Seems like Iím the only one who got that view count up and no-one doing any positive things every day lol.

Iím out yaíll, itís been real lol

I can't say I have, I've found that the news stresses me out, so I stay away from reading it or listening to it in my daily life c:

edit: ..maybe/perhaps there's a better solution than limiting forum posts 🤔☺️
