Most B.net groups have some sort of spam thread and it does a really good job for letting people vent without doing harm to the actual forum. It clears up threads that have no discussion value and the only real issue with spam threads are really long posts that make it impossible to scroll, but it's better to pile up all the crap in one thread then let it spill everywhere.

Another thing you need to keep in mind is that this community is going to explode with newbies (when Destiny releases) and they're going to surely magnify the amount of [doo-doo] posting on the mains.

People are going to continue to make alts and spam quality threads with bad trolling no matter how many mods there are. And I know you guys like to ban people, but it'll make the forum a lot better.

But the flood forums have different kinds of users than the community forums.

Spam would be terrible.

Off topic and spam are two different things.

Nope. Spam itself is unnecessary.
If you want to post useless posts, take it to a private group forum.

It happens anyways. A spam thread would allow people to vent without deteriorating the forum.

It got 56 pages or so then got locked for being spam.

I take your imagination and subject it to reality.

No, that'd be counter-intuitive to the rules.

You're right it's kind of un-official spam thread. But we keep the discussion on topic right?

  • gamertag: [none]
  • user homepage:

"Request a ban on a Mythic Member" is the forum spam thread right now. It hasn't been locked and we can talk about anything within the rules of the website without getting warned/banned, so enjoy it while it lasts.

"You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space." -Johnny Cash

I wouldn't mind one, but I'm sure the Forum Ninja/s that's designated to moderate it would.

It couldn't hurt to be done, at least for a month to see how things go.
