Reminder: Links and Spam

Post by Crazo3077 » Tue Jul 07, 2009 9:40 pm

Hey folks. I've noticed that some of you people have been doing some linking and posting that aren't exactly working too well with the rules. How about you read this and see what I mean.

Links
Say I wanted to link to my site, so I made a topic for it. Or I wanted to talk about my friend's new awesome site. Does this means I can post the link on a topic of its own on the General Discussion board? Let me tell you right out. No. The site's rules say that if you want to post to an outside site, then post it in your signature. Don't post it on a CI forum.

This goes the same for links that lead to something that may be found offensive. If the link leads to something against the site's rules, such as an image that has cursing or cussing on it, then you shouldn't post it. It is against the rules, even if you warn people. Remember that.

Spam
There are many ways to view spam, right? WRONG! Spam is simply a useless or almost meaningless post. There are many ways to do this. It could be just posting an image and nothing else, posting only three words (or not even a word) is also spam. In fact, getting off topic can even be considered spam. Please remember this to cut down on the spam on CI. We don't wanna drown.

I hope this information clarifies a few small things.

Ok, I'll remember this. We can still post Youtube links(within the rules, of course), right?

I just with Fusion and as long as there is a real reason to post the video, then it should be fine. Just don't spam the link.

Posting an image and nothing else is actually not against the rules under certain conditions, like if it's something that gets your point across and has words in it, it's fine. As opposed to just an image for example of some person just reading a book.

LOLcats and demotivators are fine if they're on topic.

The point is more to help you realize how easily people make mistakes and make spam without noticing.

Three word responses arent strictly spam, it really does depend on what you are saying, but I can see what crazo means, generally it would more than likely be spam... just think about it and if you think its relevant then go for it, after all, you can have a 3 letter word spam response stretched out to 6 words if you tried, it would still be spam, yet you could have a useful/relevant post which is only 3 words..

just use your brain, you'll know when its spam or not

@ Patty Cake: Prime example? xD Yeah... would this be considered spam since i can't really think of anything to add the point?

actually, angelchao45, cussing and cursing are 2 different things:

cussing: the use of 1 cuss word in a sentence.

cursing: the use of 2 or more cuss words in a sentence.

Annoying: Debating the meaning of a slang term and out-of-intended-context word. Cussing is like ain't. Not a real word, but, due to over use, you can find the idioms in a dictionary.

And that's pretty off topic there. Haha.
