Welcome to my pointless thread to end all pointless threads. Well, the point of this thread is to make pointless thread writers stop writing pointless threads. Threadception. 

 

Anyway, in the past few days, I have seen many threads that are unbelievably pointless.

 

How NOT to write a pointless thread:

1) Don't make a thread when there is already a similar thread that exists.

2) Don't make a thread to whine about something: http://gtaforums.com...topic/?hl= moan

3) Don't make a thread simply to ask a question. That's what this is for: http://gtaforums.com...ons-and-answers

 

You pointless thread writers see where I'm going with this, right? I hope so.

 

When writing a thread, ask yourself, "Does anyone care about what I'm writing about?"

Also, don't be an a-hole and say things like, "yeah this is worth making a thread over"...that one is just the worst (you'll find that one below).

And for the love of Jebus, don't taunt the moderators.

Here are some examples of awful threads mentioned above:

http://gtaforums.com...39-god-help-me/

http://gtaforums.com...ive-up-you-win/

http://gtaforums.com...the-glitch-ps3/

http://gtaforums.com...is-car-picture/

 

I don't mean to call anyone out. Just pointing out lame threads.

I wasn't going to write this thread at first because it is greatly ironic... hopefully it'll be helpful in some way.

Hate to say it, but truth be told, this isnt going to stop pointless threads...in a sense, making this thread is the very thing youre trying to stop. Good effort though.

Making a pointless threads topics to explain to pointless thread makers is genius in a way, but it's just that............people make pointless threads because they can't think up their own in advance.

therefore it was pointless making this pointless thread thread about pointless threads.
