I just had to read like 9 topics of the same person quoting some one else. What good are you doing? What are you contributing to the topic? Sometimes what the person said was basically how you felt, hell it might even be a very nice thing to one of the clans in discussion, but there is no need to ALWAYS be quoting some one else.
1.2 - Irritating Posting Styles/Spamming
In order to maintain an environment that promotes ease in the exchange of information, spamming is prohibited.
Spamming includes posting entire messages using excessive formatting (all caps), posting the same message repeatedly, cross posting the same message in multiple forums, making pointless threads or replies (such as "+1" posts), begging (for yourself or another player), posting referral links* in posts or signatures, excessive use of "smilies"/characters/spaces/blank lines/nested quotes, and so on.
Additionally, do not pointlessly bump old threads unless you're contributing to the topic. You may bump a topic in the Marketplace or a very important thread elsewhere, but not whilst the thread is still on the first page of the forum.
*Whether or not a link is a referral link is left up to a moderator's discretion.
I see these massive lazy posts of oh I'll just quote what some one else and then repeat it on 3498209348 other topics as spam. The community here is pretty dead not going to lie, there is rarely new topics to discuss about the clan world in CD, and the only reason we have CD is apparently to play silly games to increase our post count. So basically our clan community here on tip.it would only appeal to those who like to play games as there is literally like no other discussion. (Except a few decent topics from today)
Also it's quite boring to read the same thing over and over, especially from the same person (Like I said you know who you are so I won't say any name(s)). Why do people post win topics? Well mainly because they have to for TWR but that's hardly all of their reasoning.
Posting win topics brings good publicity (Most the time) to their clan. They also want to feel like they have accomplished something. Saying Gratz is nice, simple enough to make them somewhat happy about their performance, but if that person who said Gratz to everyone else on every win topic does it still have its meaning? It's like your girlfriend saying I love you to everyone.
TL;DR be more original when posting in Wars in run ins, and post something to discuss once in a while in CD, so I don't have to read silly games.
True Poster Challenge:
I challenge you to post 100% originally for ONE WEEK. That means w/e you post on a win topic or response can't be said by someone else(Like seriously go full out on this and try not to copy a single word already posted if possible, if you are a boss ofcourse, if not then you can have some words others have already posted). Also create at least one CD Topic that is somewhat original, and no games aren't real discussion plus we already have too many games.
The most original posters win, good luck to those who accept the challenge. Maybe I'll make some sort of graphical award to entice you to participate.
