Subject: Count Signatures As Spam?

The beta is super awesome. RogueAssassin27 is now the person who got my Totodile's nickname. Hoo-hah! Relevant.inb4lock

If you hang out at The Flood, you know what I mean.

Recently everyone has been sporting a signature, not the one in your profile, but under every post, commonly being "yorkie".

Now as this is a very small problem, it's starting to get annoying and will most likely get out of hand.

Thoughts?

So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.

It does count as spam.

I like to tape strawberries to my tits.

I do Yorkie because Yorkie is a genius- a damn brave genius.

For years now, he has put "yorkie" under every single post of his, and despite the constant complaining since he's been here, he never loses it. I give props to Yorkie, because he knows how to make people mad in the simplest ways.

Well done, sir.

I made a thread similar to this a couple months ago.

I don't really remember the outcome of the thread, but I agree, sigs should be counted as spam, they annoy the hell outta me >.>

If it's a simple "signing of a post" I don't see why it's that big a deal and I certainly don't consider it against the rules. If it was a link to a group advertisement, or a thread someone's trying to advertise, then I would probably send the person a PM or a warning, telling them to stop.

Why, you ask?

Please don't do that, or I'll ban you.

See what True did there? No? well look at the bottom of the post. That's The Great Pretender's signature he always posts.

-TGP- is Great_Pretender's signature he puts at the end of every post he makes.

I'll be on my own side.

This should be counted as spam. It's detrimental to the community. Thank God the community forum is here to discuss these pressing issues we face in today's Internet forums.

I'm not bothered at all by people signing their posts but I will agree this Yorkie thing is a tad bit annoying but not too bad.

EDIT.

To clarify Yorkie himself signing his posts is totally fine by me it's the other hundreds of people that have been signing his name that's getting a bit old.

We just need to instigate more elitism and Mythic shenanigans.

Does it add to the conversation?
No

Does it take up space?
Yes

I would count that as spam. It isn't that bad, because they aren't bumping the topic without cause, because they are contributing in their post (in theory).

Does it really matter, as long as the post is on-topic?

I really don't see how you can let that bother you. I mean, it's just a name at the end of a post. Who care right? Talk about splitting hairs.

All because of signatures, yup.

  • 06.30.2010 7:20 PM PST

I don't see the big deal over signatures. It only at the very least one letter added the end of a post.

Nothing wrong with it, if it hurts you then that's your problem. Also, it'd probably be better if you didn't use a specific user and an example.
