Gang threads and double-posting
Posted 19 April 2012 - 05:43 PM Edited by Vintage88, 19 April 2012 - 06:01 PM.
If I make a post and my gang sees it, then attempts to relay a new set of information a few hours later is basically futile through the use of the edit button. There is no inclination for members to check the thread again when the last post has already been seen. No notifications through subscriptions either. Additionally a few others members could start a discussion below it before the members who previously saw your post get a chance to see the edit. You could argue much of this holds true for all sections on the site. Unlike other sections of the site though, these threads mainly serve the purpose of being a discussion area for members of the gang as well as other associated users. Having instances where new gang information or discussion may be unseen by certain members is very counter to that.
Considering the above points and the fact that the vast majority of activity within a gang thread comes from members of the gang itself, I think this exception should be made.

If it's something worthwhile and interesting, it wouldn't be a problem. If it's just 1 worded posts, spam, some image memes and what not, that really can't be allowed.

Your triple post was spam and a failed attempt at being funny by saying "Our club. Our thread. Our rules." in 3 consecutive posts and after another user informed you about the Forum rules.
And you now say that "spam and needless bumping should not be tolerated obviously." What am I missing?
As Craig clearly explained double posting is already tolerated in most situations as long as it doesn't become an habit.
If we'd allow it to be used freely we would have to deal with a lot of double/triple posts and unnecessary bumping.
The rules are just fine like they are atm.
