Greatest member, huh? Why don't you explain to us why you're the greatest member, eh? It's hard for us to welcome you when all we get is "Hey."

Yeah. That's what I figured someone would say. I'm 16, quite bored right now, and nowhere near the greatest member on the site. Although, I bet I'm one of th few noobs here who actually can type coherrent English.

Capo CriminiThat's what I figured someone would say.

Nah, most people would have just taken the opportunity to say hi and add a +1 to their post count ;)

Coherent English is always a plus. We do lack that quite a bit here in certain areas... however boredom and forums together often creates interesting results, as you'll see if you visit The Spam Forum. That'll be the place to go if you're really bored. Just make sure you have a look at our rules. We're not really that strict, but certain things just don't fly here and your coherent English will be much more appreciated if it goes along with good posting ettiquette ;)

What's the point of a spam forum? I really don't think it deters spam in other areas.

No, it doesn't. Most of the moderators will attest to that. It is, however, a place where it is "legal" to spam. Its title is really misleading, though. It's more of a "off-topic forum where you can spam a bit". It's all in good-fun, and when people use it to actually spam, the spam forum regulars get a little irritated. If you have a look you'll probably see what I mean.

You don't get posts added to your post count for posting there, so the people who post there do so purely for their own amusement.

Sounds kind of fun. Why don't the same "no post count" rules apply in here as well? And what's with allowing advertisers? Not cool...

Also, is there a testing thread, or something of the sort?

Capo Crimini And what's with allowing advertisers? Not cool...

Well, they're going to advertise whether we allow them or not, so why not just give them a nice place to do it where everyone can ignore him? I think that was the idea, anyway. That's what I tend to do. With a forum this big, we get lots of advertisement and lots of spam. So if we provide a way for people to "release their urges" we end up having to discipline fewer people ;)

[quote=Capo Crimini]Also, is there a testing thread, or something of the sort?

You can probably use the spam forum for any kind of testing, like it you wanted to set your signature or something. Also, there's a handy dandy post edit button you can use within 30 minutes of a post, to avoid cluttering up a thread with multiple posts in a row.
